Obama Bashes Pro-Life Americans, Praises Planned Parenthood During Speech: ‘God Bless You’

Washington, D.C. — Barack Obama came out swinging against pro-life Americans in a speech Friday morning to approximately 1,000 Planned Parenthood supporters, while defending the abortion giant with fervor.

“The fact is, after decades of progress, there’s still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st Century,” Obama declared to those gathered, who greeted him with loud cheers. “And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health.”

“[Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards] describes Planned Parenthood as the only organization that she’s ever been at where there are opponents who, in her own words, ‘literally get up every day trying to figure out how to keep us from doing our work,’” he said, adding in jest, “If she had worked in the administration she would be more familiar with this phenomenon.”

Obama also took issue with state legislation that seeks to restrict abortion, including measures that have been signed into law in recent months.

“Forty-two states have introduced laws that would ban or severely limit access to a woman’s right to choose,” he noted with disdain. “In North Dakota, they just passed a law that outlaws your right to choose starting as early as six weeks. … A woman may not even know that she’s pregnant at six weeks.”

He took a swipe at Personhood Amendment efforts as well.

“In Mississippi, a ballot initiative was put forward that could not only have outlawed your right to choose, but could have all sorts of other far-reaching consequences like cutting off fertility treatments, making certain forms of contraception a crime,” Obama stated. “That’s absurd. That’s wrong. It’s an assault on women’s rights, and that’s why when the people of Mississippi were given a chance to vote on that initiative, they turned it down — and Mississippi is a conservative state.”

“Folks are trying to [pass laws] all across the country,” he said with a look of disturbance. “When you read about some of these laws, you want to check the calendar. You want to make sure you’re still living in 2013. … When politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they’re not just talking about you. They’re talking about the millions of women who you serve.”

While he avoided using the word “abortion” and rather spoke of “the right to choose,” Obama vowed to continue to stand with Planned Parenthood’s mission and against those that would oppose it.

“No matter how great the challenge, no matter how fierce the opposition, there’s one thing that the past few years have shown, [and that is] that Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere. It’s not going anywhere today. It’s not going anywhere tomorrow,” he asserted. “As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality affordable healthcare, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a women’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be with you fighting with you every step of the way.”

“We are truly grateful to you,” Obama stated. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”

Planned Parenthood was founded in 1921 by Margaret Sanger, and was originally known as the American Birth Control League. She later changed the name as some found it offensive.

“We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all,” Sanger once said, who was reportedly a staunch advocate of eugenics. “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Sanger was also the publisher of the newspaper The Woman Rebel, which she subtitled “No Gods, no masters.”

    plan parenthood isn’t about planning families at all as the name indicates, preventing pregnancies is one thing but killing unwanted pregnancies is a whole other ballgame. If you don’t want to get pregnant then abstain or at the very least use contraceptives, there are plenty of contraceptives on the market. Doesn’t Obama look so proud about blessing the killing of the unborn, how many murdered babies could have contributed to our society in great ways, only God knows. If abortions were advocated as they are now back in the day when Obama’s mother got pregnant with him, she might have had one, bet he never thinks of that, she gave him to her parents to raise so they say, that says a lot.

    I as a woman make choices each and every day which affect myself and those around me. One of those choices is to engage or not engage in sexual activity. Should I choose to have sex & another life is produced from that choice then there is no longer only my rights to consider but another who has not yet learned to speak and cannot voice their rights. Just as a woman who chooses to have sex and then give birth does not have the right to murder the human she gave birth to simply because it cannot speak yet , so to the human inside her who cannot speak has the right to life although it cannot plead for such. One human is inside her and the other is no longer inside her yet they both are humans that cannot speak yet have the right to be heard. A mute human has no less rights then those of us who can speak.

    In the case of force …. that woman who endured the wrong of another persons choices being forced upon her should be helped to understand that should she kill the life that became of that injustice… she will be committing a far worse injustice of force upon another. A human who cannot speak has no less right to life then those of us who can. Victims do not solve anything by becoming victimizers themselves. Justice is not served when two lives are destroyed. Many women of rape have given birth & kept the child or offered it up to others who have wanted a child but could not conceive .

    A moral society chooses morally but an immoral society makes excuses for their behavior and forces their will upon others who cannot defend themselves.
