The White House said on Thursday that U.S. President Barack Obama would oppose any efforts by Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, a health organization that performs abortions at its clinics.
Republicans in Congress have threatened to pull federal funding from Planned Parenthood after a group that opposes abortions released videos that suggest the health organization profits off supplying aborted fetal tissue for medical research.
The press is still in full spin mode here, as you can see. The videos don’t “suggest” anything–they’re quite clear.
This also sadly proves that the ideological progressive agenda, especially on the abortion issue, won’t be held in check by the boundaries of human decency. The leader of the free world is willing to give a publicly funded organization a pass on harvesting fetuses for parts to dismember and sell in order to keep the insane pro-abortion lobby happy. Let that sink in.
In the Obama era, the pro-aborts have abandoned the “safe, legal and rare” pretense they used to use to dupe the public. As this episode proves, there are virtually no limits to how far they will go and any attempts to rein them in are portrayed as draconian restrictions on women’s health care.
Defenders of Planned Parenthood will have you believe that pap smears, mammograms and access to birth control will virtually disappear should the organization not receive taxpayer dollars. Like all things about Planned Parenthood, it’s a lie. Also, as many have pointed out, Obama’s “signature legislative achievement” is supposed to have all of that covered.
So, as Dr. Carson and so many others have pointed out, if Obamacare is so wonderful, why do we need to spend money on the abortion ghouls at Planned Parenthood?
Ask as many liberals as you can that question, if only to watch their heads explode.
