Obama backs out of Planned Parenthood keynote address
The Washingtomn Times ^ | April 24, 2013 | Susan Crabtree

Posted on 04/24/2013 11:32:48 AM PDT by don-o

resident Obama has canceled plans to deliver a keynote address at Planned Parenthood’s annual fundraising dinner Thursday night after critics decried his high-profile role at the abortion rights group amid new concerns about the brutality of illegal forms of abortion.

White House spokesman Jay Carney announced the decision to cancel the keynote speech at the gala during his daily press briefing with reporters Wednesday. He attributed the schedule change to Mr. Obama’s desire to spend more time at a memorial service in Waco, Texas, for family members of the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion.

Can’t hide from his own support of the murder of babies that survive botched abortions.

Pretty significant for him to cancel this address to this crowd.

Maybe Planned Parenthood can get Gosnell to speak in Obama’s place, after all, those two have A LOT in common

“resident Obama”

A more true accidental excerpt could not have been written.

Too late for him to wash the blood of innocents off his hands anyways.

But I thought Obama’s approval ratings bounced after his minions failed to “connect the dots”, & allowed the Boston terrorists free rein? Why, if his approval has really rebounded, is Obama concerned about keynoting Planned Parenthood?

I think his own internal polling shows he’s on a slide. He’s in-your-face when he thinks he can get away w it, but his actions say he doesn’t think he’s getting away w it right now. Bet that so called bounce is gone by next wk...if not sooner.

The Gosnell trial is exposing abortion for the brutal murderous act it is....there is no hiding it although the media is trying. These disgusting group of butchers are going to pay eventually. Gosnell will be paying in about a week. He faces the death penalty...no one is more deserving of it!!!

Apparently Abortion is big business!!!

Lila Rose, who heads the anti-abortion group Live Action, said the accounts by Mr. Gosnell’s former clinic staff have “shell-shocked the nation.”
“It is incumbent upon the president to reconsider his support for the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood, which last year profited from abortion $87 million committing over 300,000 abortions,” she said Tuesday.

Well, you see, Obamuzzie does need to stay in touch / on good terms with Gosnell. After all he wouldn’t want to see his daughter punished with a baby——

He doesn’t hate women. He would desire for his daughter to go through this so she would not be punished with a baby. See the punishment and hate is in having the baby. His daughter is getting old enough to ask him about those comments a few years ago.

Why is this not a learning or teaching opportunity? Why isn`t this a cry for people to rethink exactly what goes on at ALL abortion clinics?

It`s like it`s forbidden to discuss what actually is involved in a abortion...

We should be having a National discussion, “Christians” that are saying social issues need to take a back seat do to the times we are in

Some of my favorite people have said those words, I dare not say who

Christians that say and buy into the phrase..... Social issues not important because of financial situation, there is a word for that, It`s called BACKSLIDING

I blame Democrat Churches, the black Church in particular. The black folks had a rich Christian tradition, and they have stomped on it

They wave their arms and say they love Jesus (speaking only of the ALL black Churches that vote Democrat)

Plenty/millions of good decent black Christians that do not attend those evil Churches...ABSOLUTELY

Catholic Democrats etc share the blame, and then even the real Christians that have grown silent, that obey the laws that prevent protesting etc, most of us are guilty in some way I guess

But blood on the hands of ALL that vote Democrat in any way shape or form, and yes even for the phony baloney so called Christian Democrat, OXYMORON term btw

The good folks and citizens of West, Texas should give POTUS Obama & His wife Michelle the cold shoulder tomorrow at Baylor University by never applauding to anything he says...or....turning their backs on him as he speaks!!!

My Texas, sisters & brothers....Obama could care less about you, which he clearly proved last week by ignoring your tragedy, except for a few unfelt words. It took him until yesterday to decide if he would grace you with his presence.

He is more interested in cuddling up to his Muslim Brotherhood brethren and having Michelle visut a Saudi terrorist in the hospital and.....he along with Hillary Clinton lying about the “Benghazi” massacre!!! He ought not be applauded...he ought to be impeached!!!

So not only is he the first pro-infanticide president. He is also a pussy. Doesn’t even have the courage of his convictions (no matter how screwed up those convictions are).

or maybe it is because he doesn’t need to send any more ‘support’. If Gosnell can get away with mass infanticide and the murder of women, then victory is already achieved for his side!
