During a speech Friday President Obama told Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider with a long track record of covering up sexual abuse and rape, "God bless you."
Obama's comments come as Planned Parenthood sits back and refuses to condemn the gruesome actions of late term abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
“President Obama touts Planned Parenthood as a trusted friend and health care provider to women and girls, but this could not be further from the truth. Planned Parenthood last week admitted to knowing about the conditions inside Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia clinic yet chose not to act to help end the killing of newborn babies and butchering of women," Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “President Obama blatantly ignored this inconvenient truth about the abortion industry’s horrific lack of oversight, and disparaged the pro-life advocates who wake up each morning with the goal of saving the lives of unborn children and women from the pain of abortion. It seems that nothing – not even eyewitness accounts of Gosnell-style conditions in their own clinics – is enough to make President Obama reconsider his unyielding support for Planned Parenthood, which in a single year performed more than 333,000 abortions and received half a billion dollars in taxpayer money. It is no wonder that in introducing him, the first thing Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards did was to lavish praise on President Obama for supporting the abortion giant to the point of willingness to shut down the entire government during the continuing resolutions battle.”
Again as a reminder, Obama's views of abortion don't stray far from Gosnell's actions. Obama's record shows he is a supporter of infanticide, voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection act four times and referred to a baby as a "fetus outside of the womb" during his time in Illinois.
