While at a pro-abortion dinner at The National Women’s Law Center Awards Banquet, Obama spoke before 2000 people in defense of taxpayer funded abortions. He bashed Republican lawmakers for their efforts to deny federal funding to the Planned Parent Organization. Planned Parenthood is responsible for more aborted fetus’ than any other organization in the United States.
“Instead of figuring out how to put more Americans back to work, they’ve been trying to figure out how to take away preventive care that is covered under the Affordable Care Act,” said Obama, in an attempt to defend his position. Instead of making life easier for women in this country, they want to let insurance companies go back to charging higher prices just because you’re a woman. Instead of working to boost our economy, they’re out there spending time trying to defund Planned ParentHood and prevent millions of women from getting basic health care that they desperately need, pap smears and breast exams.
Not true Obama, nobody objects to women getting general care like pap smears, breast exams and other tests that women must receive to maintain their health. It is the millions of abortions that are performed on viable fetus’ that the American People object to. Once again, Obama makes a clearly populist speech to a friendly audience and leaves out the REAL FACTS.
Last Month, House members voted 251 – 172 for pro-life legislation (The Protect Life Act) with 236 Republicans and 15 Democrats supporting the bill and 170 democrats and two Republicans voting against it.
According to Lifenews.com, H.R. 358, Protect Life Act, makes it clear that no funds authorized or appropriated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), including tax credits and cost-sharing reductions, may be used to pay for abortion or abortion coverage. It specifies that individual people or state or local governments must purchase a separate elective abortion rider or insurance coverage that includes elective abortion but only as long as that is done with private funds and not monies authorized by Obamacare.
Last February, the House voted overwhelmingly to scrap funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business and to ensure , they receive no federal funds through any department or programs. The House approved the Pence Amendment on a 240 – 185 vote with 10 Democrats voting with republicans to de-fund the abortion business. The Senate rejected the bill on a 44-56 vote.
This is another Obama campaign lie. The President never meant to keep his campaign promise to not use taxpayers money to fund abortion. Either he won’t keep his word or he can’t because he refuses to further alienate his far left base.
