As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Addresses Planned Parenthood Without Saying “Abortion”

I turned on The Five on Fox News this afternoon for a few minutes and noticed that they were talking about President Obama’s appearance this morning at Planned Parenthood and that they were discussing euphemisms people use for abortion.

So I took a look at Obama’s remarks and realized he hadn’t once used the word “abortion” while speaking at a meeting of the nation’s premiere abortion mill.

Here’s what he called abortion instead:

decisions best made between a woman and her doctor

a woman’s constitutional right to privacy

a woman’s right to choose

woman’s health

a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health

Now, this begs the question, if abortion really isn’t something so terrible, if it’s benign enough to be considered little more than a medical procedure, THEN WHY NOT USE THE WORD??

Instead, Obama avoided it like the plague and went on and on about all the other wonderful services Planned Parenthood provides.

Let’s be real here. Planned Parenthood should obviously have been named Avoiding Parenthood.

“Planned Parenthood” in 2008-2009 earned about 40 percent of its income from providing abortions. In 2009, in performed 332,278 abortions, about one in every four abortions in the United States.

Planned Parenthood is an abortion factory. If you support that, fine, it’s your right. But just, say it.

  1. Not to worry, he ended his speech by saying “God bless you.” Isn’t that mixing religion and government? Where is the ACLU to protest?

  2. Not surprising for a man who can’t define “amnesty” or “fair share”, and whose autobiography is full of fictional “composites” — a man who also can’t define (or recognize) a tax increase.

    At least he didn’t urge them to “punish your enemies” — or “bring a gun to a knife procedure”.

    • In a sense, he did.
      Isn’t abortion ‘punishing the enemy within’ ?
      Bring a gun to a knife fight ?
      It makes no difference to the helpless infant.
      There is a monster in our midst and it lives in the White House.

      • “There is a monster in our midst and it lives in the White House.” – AFVet

        I’m with you that Obama is a monster, AFV, but there is one thing we need to remember about it. He’s not the disease.

        He’s just a symptom.

        Obama would not be possible were there not an electorate that’s been primed by generations of dumbed-down public “education”, Hollywood propaganda concerning what is and is not acceptable and desirable behaviours, and a desperate, learned helplessness that it took more than ONE liberal government to cultivate.

        The people who elected Obama did so out of self-interest. They wanted a President dedicated to using the armed might of the United States to forcibly take property from their fellow citizens and redistribute it to them; forcing drug companies to distribute “free” birth control so they could indulge their baser instincts without consequences; “free” abortions, for those whom even “free” birth control was too much responsibility; and cell phones, cell phones, CELL PHONES!

        Plus, he’s “Black”. Did you notice? The media DID mention it a few billion times. Many of your fellow voters noticed, too, and voted for him for that reason alone. This makes any opposition to him automatically “racist” – no matter if it comes from an individual of the same hue as he.

        Obama is a post turtle, but he was set there by forces that would still exist, even if he did not. They would set another in his place, had he not existed. Administratively, he basically does not exist anyway. What OTHER President has been so coy about his past, from birth certificates to academic records?

        And it macht nichts. There he is, in all his glory. But the TRUE evil is how he GOT there, NOT in the idol itself.

        “We have met the enemy and he is us,” – Pogo

        There is too much momentum in the wrong direction now. If the Lord tarries, the only force that can stop it is when the money runs out. And it will, as always happens in socialist systems. History is replete with examples of what occurs when the money runs out, none of them pretty.

        We will not be spared. G_d dispossessed the Isralies for a generation for less affront than he’s been offered by modern Americans. We can only look to Him at this point, no Man can save us.

        But don’t let Obama darken YOUR heart, or take YOUR salvation from you, come what may.

        That’s what a monster would TRULY want…

  3. You are right to point out that the word is important. There are a lot of important words that politicians refuse to say; revenue (taxes), path to citizenship (amnesty), and all the twisted verbiage they use to describe war.
    MrObama’s position on abortion is well known and documented. He believes that an unwanted pregnancy is a “punishment” and a live unwanted birth should be terminated.
    As he travels the US calling out opponents of gun control as uncaring and indifferent to the life of “just one child”, he sees no parallel with the death of 300 thousand babies killed every year at abortion clinics.

    The people at the PlannedParenthood “gala” must look to each other to support and justify what they know, they damned well know, is the killing of unborn children. Now, they have the public support of the POTUS congratulating them for their crime, and asking a merciful God to Bless them for their sins.

  4. “All men,” and make no mistake, whose first right, Life, as endowed by “their Creator” in the Declaration of Independence(paragraph #2) has been denied, have no voice in this “holiest sacrament” of liberals, in general, and Planned Parenthood, in particular.
    Some people are remarkably uninformed about something as basic as “Thou shalt do no murder” for all of they profess to know about how we should treat the environment or what we should eat.

  5. Disgust does not begin to describe how we feel about Obama and it grows daily.
    He is barging ahead in his attempt to destroy what is good in America.
    Do not let this happen……

  6. I understand he also repeated the canard–ok, the lie–that PP offers mammograms. surely Obama knows better than that. remember when the PP president had to come out and admit well yeah, they really didn’t do mammograms? if I remember it, I have to assume he remembers it, since he’s the smartest person ever.

    which leads to the conclusion that he’s deliberately misspeaking in hopes that the low-infos will believe everything he says.

    • It’s a lie, and Obama knows it. The Washington Post gave him Three Pinocchios for this false statement way back in October of 2012, before the election. Certainly, with his vast resources, he’s been able to check the facts by now.

      Thus the verdict is: Premeditated murder of the truth. Attorney General Holder is likely already working on a (nother) POTUS pardon.

  7. I understand he also repeated the canard–ok, the lie–that PP offers mammograms. surely Obama knows better than that. remember when the PP president had to come out and admit well yeah, they really didn’t do mammograms? if I remember it, I have to assume Obama remembers it, since he’s the smartest person ever.

    which leads to the conclusion that he’s deliberately misspeaking in hopes that the low-infos will believe everything he says.

  8. In his own words about his own daughters:

    “Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.

  9. Obama travels the Country promoting gun control saying that if we can just save one child’s life it would be worth it right ?
    And then turns right around and endorses Planned Parenthood.
    It’s enough to make your head explode.

  10. While President Obama should have had the integrity to use the word ” abortion,” an even better word would be “infanticide.”

    I comfort myself by thinking of abortion as evolution in action. By encouraging his natural constituency to systematically exterminate their own children, President Obama is purging future voter registration rolls of Democrats and culling the gene pool.

    Perhaps we could make abortion retroactive?

      • I think Steve Jobs’ mom chose life when she became pregnant as a single mom. The blind opera singer Andrea Boccelli’s (sp?) mom was told her baby would be born with birth defects and recommended abortion, she chose life.

        There’s many inspiring stories out there and I especially like the argument to the radical pro-abortion element ….. your moms chose life too.

      • No, but if two-parent conservative families are filling minivans in Utah, while single moms in Philly go running to Planned Parenthood, that has to show up in the demographics at some point, doesn’t it?

        I read a study not long ago that said that the best way to predict whether or not a child would end up in prison during its lifetime, is whether or not it had a single mother. And prisoners, when they can vote, tend to vote for Democrats. Therefore, a good predictor of whether or not a child will vote for Democrats may be if it’s born to a single mother. I know that’s cold–and your point is well taken–but it is logical.

        Conservatives tend to be more likely to get married, plan for kids, and keep them. Liberals are statistically more likely to either be irresponsible and run for the abortion mills, or–how to put this delicately–be in relationships which are biologically incapable of producing offspring.

        Their sinful lifestyle choices will eventually catch up with the left. I only hope it’s in time to save this Nation.

        • The left uses abortion as a form of birth control. Some of those woman that went to Gosnell had as many as 8 abortions. They now complain that they are unable to have children. I guess they had their chance the FIRST 8 times. God can only forgive so many times. I mean really!

          Isn’t birth control cheaper?

    • I apologize to anyone who interpreted my fatalistic jest as a sincere opinion. Killing babies isn’t the proper response to the gratuitously irresponsible behavior of their parents. All we have to do to restrain their unrestrained breeding is cut off their welfare benefits.

  11. I find it insulting that Obama and fellow libs believe women are incapable of thinking for themselves without the help of Planned Parenthood. That he would say “God bless you” to them is chilling.

  12. Obama is a babykiller who wants to control the population just like Hitler did and the other Nazis by murdering — he is no different from them — and you are right, he never uses the word abortion, thats how phony and disgusting he is, he thinks he’s fooling people by not using the word. Generations of humans are being killed which cannot be right!!! and the President of the United States sanctions this and blesses it too, which is proof that he is not normal and that he is a moron, what NORMAL person would say “Bless Planned Parenthood” NO LESS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?? Also, in some cases it has been said by doctors that birth control pills can cause cancer, so keep taking your pills women, Obama would like to get rid of you too and the seniors (taking billions of dollars out of Medicare).
    Keep voting for these NOVELTY Presidents, Obama and then Clinton and see what you’ll get, more taxes and more death to human beings to control the population. OBAMA IS NOT NORMAL WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE WITH THIS NUT.

    • The sad part about Obama wanting to control the population is that the black population are the ones that are hit the most. He is destroying his own people.

      I would rather take my chances with birth control than destroy someone else’s life with abortion.

  13. “God bless you”? Really?!? He said that??? He’s worse than his mentor and surrogate father who asked God to ‘damn America’….he is asking Him to bless the baby killers. Monster!

  14. I noticed the same thing. The next step is to eliminate the word ‘abortion’ from our vocabulary, as the media has done so many times.

  15. What made me the sickest is watching all of the women in the audience cheering and clapping and shouting and happily screaming and waving their arms and their banners and agreeing with everything Obama said.

  16. Based on my understanding of baby Obama’s familial situation, he should be grateful there was no Planned Parenthood facility available in that country. Abandoned by a black father at an early age and then by his white mother unto his grandparents.

  17. He won’t say it because he knows it’s evil. Just like “Islam” or Jihad. He will burn in hell for saying “God bless you” to this crew (and for about 10,000 other sins)

  18. The left has always controlled the debate by controlling the syntax. This is what Rush Limbaugh so aptly pointed out in the homosexual union debate, that we let them say “Traditional” marriange instead of just “Marriage” – which tacitly acknowledged and accepted that there were other kinds…

    Racism, Sexism, Ageism, even murder, is what THEY say it is. If THEY get to define the word, who do you think the word definition will favor? And why should it be any different in the Abortion issue?

    If he actually discussed and debated it, he might have to explain things he doesn’t want to get into, like his Senate colleauge Barbra Boxer’s statement that life begins when – and if – the “foetus” is WILLINGLY taken home from the hospital…

    ‘In the 1999 colloquy, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) said: Suppose during this procedure the baby slips entirely from the mother’s birth canal. “You agree, once a child is born, is separated from the mother, that that child is protected by the Constitution and cannot be killed? Do you agree with that?” Boxer: “I think when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born … the baby belongs to your family and has all the rights.” Santorum persisted: “Obviously, you don’t mean they have to take the baby out of the hospital for it to be protected by the Constitution. Once the baby is separated from the mother, you would agree—completely separated from the mother—you would agree that the baby is entitled to constitutional protection?” She would not say “yes.” Instead, she said, understandably: “I don’t want to engage in this.”’

    Or discuss “Dr.” Goslin and infanticide being an acceptable “Choice” a little later than usual…

    “An abortion doctor in Philadelphia has been charged with eight murders, including seven babies who prosecutors say were born alive then killed with scissors.

    Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, and nine employees from his West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society were arrested Wednesday. He and his staff also are charged with killing a woman who was given a lethal dose of Demerol.

    Gosnell catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women, and made millions of dollars over 30 years performing illegal and late-term abortions in squalid and barbaric conditions, prosecutors said.

    “There were bags, and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. “There were jars lining shelves with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

    According to the grand jury report, Gosnell catered to women who were too late in their pregnancies to get legal abortions elsewhere. Most doctors refuse to perform abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy because of the risks involved.

    Abortions after the 24th week are illegal. However, Gosnell allegedly aborted and killed babies in the sixth and seventh months of pregnancy and charged more for bigger babies.

    The abortions of the biggest babies allegedly were scheduled for Sundays, when the clinic was closed. The only person allowed to assist with such cases was Gosnell’s wife, Williams said. Gosnell allegedly took home the files for those patients and disposed of them.” – ABCNEWS.com

    Or even his OWN stance on “Let Them Die” from what little we know of his pre-“Presidential” days…

    “CNSNews.com) – In 1999, Jill Stanek, a labor and delivery nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill., held a premature baby in her arms for forty-five minutes as the child struggled for life and then died.

    The little boy, who had Down Syndrome, had survived an induced-labor abortion and was going to be left alone in a soiled utility room until he expired without any medical treatment or comforting. Stanek could not bear the thought of that, and the experience of holding the baby as he fought to breathe converted her into a pro-life activist.

    Thanks to Stanek, the U.S. Congress enacted the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002.

    In Illinois, however, a state version of the law was thwarted for three years, in part because of the resolute opposition of then-Illinois-state Sen. Barack Obama.”

    “In Illinois, state Sen. Barack Obama argued with me in committee and said that he thought that declaring these pre-born babies, very premature babies—not pre-born—but very premature born babies as legal persons would lead to the overturn of Roe v. Wade. And so he voted against the bill in committee.

    Jeffrey: And he understood that these weren’t babies still in their mother’s womb?

    Stanek: He totally understood. And then he went to the floor and first voted “present” that year. And his website carried, until he won the nomination, a quote from Pam Sutherland in the Chicago Sun Times, who was the CEO of Planned Parenthood, who said he approached her, Terry–he approached her—on strategizing to overcome Born Alive and the PBA ban, Partial-Birth Abortion. So, in other words, he took a leadership role. They strategized for him to vote “present” on the floor that year, in order to draw people who might be afraid of voting against it and being declared extremist–at least getting them to vote present which is the same as a “no” vote in Illinois.

    Jeffrey: Because in Illinois there are 59 senators, and they need 30 votes to pass any bill. So if you vote present it denies them the 30 votes.

    Stanek: Right. And he was the only senator to speak against it on the Senate floor. No one else touched it.

    Jeffrey: The only one.

    Stanek: The only one.”

    Makes it a little easier to understand why he’d want to frame the debate a little differently, nicht wahr?

  19. MAYBE? someone in the “WH press corps” should ask why Obama didnt use the word ‘ABORTION’…???

    (oh, what I am saying… that a useless idea… the “WH press corps” asking a real & challenging question)

  20. A more apt name for PP is Murder, Inc. Any time the immoral wants to make the public accept their immorality, they rename their immoral actions to something they think is more palatable.
    Obama’s abortion loving stance alone would have been enough for me not to have voted for him. As it is the list of his abhorrent views is long – there is nothing he could do or say to make me believe he is worthy of the office he holds.

  21. Just because this hypocrite hides from the reality of Gosnel and is worshipped by PP for all the money and support this Administration gives it under the guise of “women’s health” is no reason for all Americans who oppose it to be forced to financially support it.tThis man is a disgrace and no defender of life or children. Drones fit his style. It’s not the killing so much as it is the reality of it that is objectionable.

    I wrote this elsewhere and am so burned out by the abuse that is Obama that I don’t have the energy to contribute more originally. But my point is, that beyond the normal authoritarian manipulation of thought through language, art and symbolic acts Obama himself is removed from reality. The aloofness for which some applaud him masks a disturbing inability to look at the reality of a situation. I am sure there are clinical terms for this but that is for others to decide.

    Unless something affects him directly (like being denied by Congress or the voters) it doesn’t get in. And as much dislike I have for the man I do not wish the horror of abortion to penetrate his reality.

  22. I just don’t understand. Some people want to kill off future generations of Americans before they’re born AND destroy the family, yet they want to admit 33,000,000 foreigners to the country and make sure that people who cannot reproduce as a couple may called themselves husband and wife.

    • “start digging the holes for the unborn and the elderly” – david

      No. Cremation. In Obamaland, who can afford holes?

      But, your next of kin will have to pay the carbon tax for your burning…

  23. He also talked about all the wonders of cancer screening–PP sends people out to get mammos, when this is even done. It’s not like it’s their service. They do over 300,000 abortions a year!

  24. I wish I could be a fly on the pearly gates when he has to stand there and make his excuses for why he should get in. I know…”It’s Bush’s fault!”

  25. Hate to dissagree… I am very conservative on essentially all things. But i think keeping this issue front and center on the political scene is bad for conservatism. To get an abortion is between yourself, your doctor and your God. Live your life the way you feel is morrally correct. If you think it is wrong, never get an abortion. Keep abortion out of politics. I know, i know, public money for abortions, etc. There are MANY things the government spends money on that i don’t like…

    • I agree talking about this brings up the war on women thing–but the Gosnell atrocity trial has bumped it up the list. Babies trying to swim out of toilets, etc. Or: “It’s moving, Mom–your call.”

    • If the condoning of the murder of millions of defenseless human babies is “bad for conservatism”, then that kind of conservatism needs to be eradicated.

  26. Just to reiterate Obama’s actual history with abortion;

    And to think that Ms. Anne Dunham could have gotten one…

  27. Planned Parenthood also covers up cases of rape and incest. It is a perfect organization for a corrupt president who supports infanticide. Lawbreakers both.

  28. I seriously doubt those that voted for Obama are having second thoughts YET! They still have all their free services, he is still pushing Abortion, Gay Marriage, Gun Grab and Rights! He is still the liberal dream. Not until they are affected/effected will they burn. Perhaps when Obamacareless kicks in and it is not free. The Liberals I deal with think he is doing a bang up job.
    Makes you want to slap them!

  29. Surely Obama is just not infringing on the rights of other citizens to choose. He is following the law to the letter however revolting it is to himself and other people. Somethings that are legal are not good for us but that is what they are.

  30. Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve consider your stuff prior
    to and you are simply extremely excellent. I actually like what you have received right here,
    certainly like what you are saying and the way wherein you say it.
    You make it enjoyable and you continue to take care of to stay it wise.
    I cant wait to read far more from you. That is really
    a terrific site.
