The Abortion President

by Gary L. Bauer, Campaign for Working Families: The famously misnamed Planned Parenthood is hosting its national conference in Washington, D.C. this week. Today Barack Obama became the first sitting president to address the event, sponsored by the nation's largest destroyer of innocent human life.

His speech was full of distortions and lies. As is so typical of the left, Obama accused the pro-life movement of wanting to "turn back the clock to … the 1950s." He added that there is an "orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women's health." Isn't it amazing that in Obama's world, 1.2 million abortions a year is seen as progress?

It is obscene when Obama equates the killing of innocent unborn children with healthcare. Pregnancy is not a disease! Even accepting that there are occasions when a woman's life or health may be in danger, such circumstances are among the rarest of reasons why abortions are performed today.

If Obama cares so much about women's health, when will his administration speak up about the growing scandal where women are dying along with babies? It is outrageous that he is addressing Planned Parenthood's conference when a butcher like Kermit Gosnell, who collected the feet of his little victims, is standing trial for "after-birth" abortions - literally killing babies after they were born.

And, by the way, Planned Parenthood knew about the horrific conditions at Gosnell's clinic, but to this day refuses to condemn him. Obama too is silent.

But Obama was there today, pledging his fealty to Planned Parenthood, promising to be "a president who is going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way."

Let me translate that for you: While we are cutting back on education, cutting air traffic controllers, cutting our military, cutting benefits to our seniors, Obama will be there to make sure that your hard-earned tax money keeps flowing to Planned Parenthood to subsidize abortions and to make sure that no legislation preventing any abortion of any kind ever becomes law.
