According to a CNN report, “President Barack Obama on Friday chided recent state efforts to enact tougher abortion laws and became the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood when he spoke at a gala for the group.” In just under 15 minutes he extolled the virtues of Planned Parenthood, declared it essential to the health of women across America.
Redstate.com, however, states that , “In two pages of printed text, he never mentioned “abortion.” Instead, he used nice euphemisms like “health care,” “choice,” “contraceptive care,” and a “right to privacy” in making health decisions and deciding when to start a family. Instead of openly acknowledging what we all know is the true purpose of Planned Parenthood – abortions on demand – Mr. Obama repeatedly referred to cancer screenings. mammograms, and other preventive health care procedures that most – if not all – Planned Parenthood facilities do not even provide.

Planned Parenthood’s real stand regarding abortion and the sanctity of life was made very apparent recently.
“Testifying against a Florida bill that would require abortionists to provide emergency medical care to an infant who survives an abortion, Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow was asked point blank: “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?” She replied: “We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”
Jaws in the committee room dropped. Asked again, she repeated her answer.”
The fact is, it is not as unusual for children to be left to die after a failed abortion as some might think. Right now in Philadelphia, abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial for the murder of seven infants who were born alive. According to District Attorney Seth Williams, Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.” Prosecutors said that Gosnell ended hundreds of pregnancies in this way. “These killings became so routine that no one could put an exact number on them. They were considered ‘standard procedure.’ ” (Washington Post)
