Skip to comments.Obama: I “Wont Give Any Ground” Defending Unlimited Abortion
Posted on 08/03/2012 3:50:40 PM PDT by wagglebee
President Barack Obama made it clear, yet again, that he will not yield when it comes to promote and supporting abortion on demand for any reason throughout pregnancy.
Appearing at a conference of liberal bloggers in New York City, Obama pledged not to give any ground when it comes to the issue of abortion.
Millions of young women have coverage through their parents plans. They are beginning to gain access to contraception at no additional cost. Im not going to give any ground to those who would deny women their own health care choices, he told the liberal bloggers at the Blog Her event. Women should have control over decisions that affect your health, your lives, your careers.
According to a Washington Times report, Obama then pivoted to a completely political plea, arguing that women who share his beliefs about their control over their health care needs and their lives couldnt face a bigger choice this election.
The comments from Obama came on the same day he met with officials from Planned Parenthood, the nations biggest abortion business, immediately after exiting Air Force One today at a campaign stop in Florida.
The Hill carried more informationon the meeting:
The two women, Jenna Cawley Tosh and Nancy Wolf, were part of a group that greeted Obama on the tarmac as he stepped off Air Force One. Obama spent time talking with each before moving on to work a rope line, according to a White House pool report. Tosh and Wolf are President/CEO and Board Chairwoman of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, respectively.
Earlier this year, First Lady Michelle Obama was in Florida for a private lunch reception with supporters of Obamas re-election campaign. While there, she met with an activist from the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Although Obama is willing to meet with officials of the abortion company, his administration appears unwilling to investigate a recent death involving a botched legal abortion that claimed a young womans life in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List says one of the biggest issues for pro-lifers is the connection between Obama and the abortion giant, which is working overtime to re-elect the president.
Its no secret that Planned Parenthood sees 2012 as an opportunity to bury the pro-life movement. Theyll spend whatever it takes to defend Barack Obama and his pro-abortion Congressional allies, she said. And its not hard to see why. President Obama said he supports Planned Parenthood because he wants his two daughters to be able to control their own health care choices.
If anything, Planned Parenthood is smart. They know the best thing they can do to expand abortion is to win big in the 2012 election by propping-up pro-abortion politicians. They will spend millions to see this happen. Its our mission to ensure they dont succeed, she said. Time is running out for you to have a significant impact on the 2012 elections.
Regardless of your position on abortion, this statement is a blatant lie in light of the Obamacare legislation.
Disagree. I don't think he cares about that or anything else. Nothing is more important to him than the support of Planned Parenthood, an organization with power and influence that is apparently deep and wide enough to put the most powerful man on the planet into office.
omg that's as funny as something like that can be.
But he wants the Republicans to compromise????
No, the most important thing to Obama is the $$$ that’s generated by abortion and dumped into his campaign war chest.
Sure, they can make their own decisions, just like men. That’s fair. The problem comes in when it involves the life of a human being, and the ghouls murder this human who’s only crime was to exist.
“Obama pledged not to give any ground when it comes to the issue of abortion.”
Don’t worry, Obama, you will have your own little, special piece of ground in Hell to cling to for all eternity, singing “I did it MY way!”
And Cardinal Dolan invited Obama to the Al Smith Dinner.
Prophetic words from someone who'll wish they had a millstone and a lake nearby.
King Barry is convinced that as long as he keeps forcing things Christians know are evil on the country that he'll float through everything untouched and that the whole world will turn to him as the great leader. Not only is his agenda very much like the agenda Hitler promoted prior to WWII, like Hitler, he's convinced that he's been selected by and is guided by “destiny”. This country has already murdered as many infants as there were deaths due to WWII and that doesn't count the untold millions murdered by contraception. There's no way around it, we will pay the price for being a nation of mass murderers, and mass murder always overtakes the murderers as well as the intended victims.
There will be blood.
Liberals: Aborting their Future since 1973
And the majority of women who claim to be Christian are an active part of the mass murder machinery by murdering their own children with contraception. Then there's the husbands who think contraception is just fine, the boyfriends who love the fact that their girlfriend is on the pill, and all the millions who claim to be Christian and ignore the fact that contraception is just an early term abortion.
If Dolan has King Barry to a dozen dinners he won't do as much harm as any one of the millions who wallow in their love of contraception rather than practicing a bit of self-restraint for part of each month.
Sarcasm's like that.
I think that’s why they support the sodomites’ efforts to get their filthy hands on other people’s children for government leftist indoctrination. The sodomites themselves of course have their own reasons.
Whatever happened to the promise O gave to the congressman (D) from Pennsylvania to get his vote (as well as other D’s) for Obamacare. He said there would be no coverage for abortion in Obamacare. He said he would sign an Executive Order to make sure. Another broken promise.
