The 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion was a shame to this country. So were all the politicians who treated the Supreme Court as the rightful dictators of America.
But it is still true that much of America is still resistant to much of the abortion industry. That’s why the ACLU sued a Catholic hospital system for not offering abortions.
In fact, given the struggles that pro-abortionists are fighting in many states (remember Wendy Davis), it is obvious the nation is split over the issue.
But the President pretends that’s not true.
LifeNews.com reports, “Obama Backs Planned Parenthood Rally, Says ‘America is a People Who Stand Up’ for Abortion.”
President Obama showed solidarity with the nation’s No. 1 abortion provider this weekend by expressing that America is “a people who stand up for the rights of women to make their own decisions about their health,” according to a statement that never once mentioned “abortion.”
This was part of Planned Parenthood’s National Day of Solidarity Saturday to show support for “access to safe reproductive healthcare, including abortion,” in the wake of the shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic. To show his support, President Obama sent Tina Tchen, the Assistant to the President, with a statement.
Tchen also holds the title of Chief of Staff to the First Lady and Executive Director of the Council on Women and Girls. She is a former partner with the prominent law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and was a “active member” of the National Organization for Women (NOW).
“I commend Planned Parenthood for convening this important event,” Tchen read on Obama’s behalf to the hundreds gathered in All Souls Church Unitarian in D.C. “I share your heartbreak about the tragedy that occurred at Planned Parenthood’s center in Colorado.”
“Too often these terrible acts seem to generate fear that’s why today is so important,” he argued, “it’s an affirmation that we are not afraid, it’s an affirmation that we stand together against violence that seeks to divide us and to undermine the ideals that make America great.”
“Ideals,” like women’s access to Planned Parenthood’s services, he later pointed out, avoiding using the word “abortion.”
“No woman, no American woman should fear violence or intimidation when seeking healthcare or assisting others in obtaining treatment,” the President asserted. “We are a people who stand up for the rights of women to make their own decisions about their health.”
If Barack Obama really believed that America is pro-abortion, he would have actually used the word in his speech. His rhetoric proves that he is lying.
