While Others Desert Him, The Romantic Music Plays On For Barack And Planned ParenthoodSep 21, 2011
Our friends at the Susan B. Anthony List have produced a short, but very amusing, video detailing the intimate relationship between Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood. It's been a long, cozy, lovey-dovey courtship (see CatholicNewsAgency.com), a true love affair between like-minded souless mates. Here are a few facts from SBA List and you can get the rest of them here:
» In a 2007 speech to Planned Parenthood Action Fund, then-candidate Obama told the audience, "On this fundamental issue, I will not yield, and Planned Parenthood will not yield."
» In its 2008 endorsement of then-candidate Obama, Planned Parenthood Action Fund made just its second presidential endorsement in its history, noting his 100% voting record with Planned Parenthood dating back to his time as a state senator in Illinois. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards exclaimed, "there is no organization better positioned to reach out to women voters than the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. We will do all that we can to support Barack Obama. …"
» During the 2008 and 2010 election cycles alone, Planned Parenthood spent over $1.7 million dollars to help elect President Obama and support his fellow pro-abortion Democrats.
» During fiscal year 2009, Planned Parenthood reported receiving over $363 million dollars in government grants and contracts — an all-time record — boosting their annual budget to over $1 billion.
Perhaps most egregious, the Obama administration has shoved aside states such as Indiana, which have defunded Planned Parenthood, and forced "federal money" (i.e., our tax dollars) into those states. Earlier this month, the president ignored New Hampshire's rejection of a $1.8 million dollar contract with Planned Parenthood, and rammed the money into the state by contracting directly with Planned Parenthood. Anything to showoff for a sweetheart. Also done in certain Central American countries. Here's the video:
