Obama’s Planned Parenthood Love Fest

Obama Planned Parenthood 2“I love you!” shouted one of the rapturous faithful at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington.

“I love you back,” responded the proud recipient, President Barack Obama.

The uncontrollable adulation, the outpouring of genuine love, he said, was making him blush. Obama regretted to the ladies that he had missed their “party” the night before. They howled when he said, “I understand it was a little wild.”

The entire occasion was a little wild, actually — in fact, it was historic. For the first time ever, a sitting American president addressed Planned Parenthood, far and away America’s preeminent abortion champion. And no president is more deserving of the honor than Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama began this love fest of a presidential address with an opening rich in mendacity and classic liberal double-speak: “Cecile, thank you for the warm introduction, and thank you for the outstanding leadership that you’ve shown over the years. You just do a great, great job. (Applause.) I want to thank all of you for the remarkable work that you’re doing day in, day out in providing quality health care to women all across America. You are somebody that women — young women, old women, women in between — count on for so many important services. And we are truly grateful to you.”

“Cecile” is Cecile Richards, dedicated director of the abortion juggernaut, to whom Obama is so truly grateful. She does a “great, great job,” says Obama. So does Planned Parenthood and all its supporters, adds the president of the United States. Indeed, he came to thank them for the “remarkable work” they’ve done over the years.

Their work is remarkable all right. One can truly say that no other organization does what Planned Parenthood does: the legal shredding and annihilation of countless millions of unborn human beings. But with typical abortion-industry/liberal-progressive mendacity, Obama never once used the a-word in the entire speech. No, Planned Parenthood’s prime money-maker, abortion, was jettisoned completely by the 44th president, cast aside for more benign terms: “health care,” “quality health care,” “affordable health care,” “women’s health,” “health care reform,” “important services,” “decisions about … health,” “decisions best made between a woman and her doctor,” “contraceptive care,” “right to choose,” “woman’s constitutional right to privacy,” and on and on.

Amid this orgy of presidential deception, the word “health” was incorporated 27 times. That’s 27 times more than the word “abortion” was used.

Obama hailed the “extraordinary doctors and nurses” and “advocates and staff” who “work tirelessly to keep the doors at health centers all across the country going.” This man of great compassion spoke stoically of “the millions of mothers and daughters and wives and sisters, friends and neighbors who walk through those doors every year.” Obama marveled at their heroism in the face of the grand “assault on women’s rights” by “conservatives” “all across the country.” Doctor Obama urged the “health care” professionals: “But when it comes to your patients, you never let them down — no matter what.”

Obama moistened the eyes of the faithful with a touching story of a woman from Chicago who he contends embodies Planned Parenthood’s mission to the world: “In college, she turned to Planned Parenthood for access to affordable contraceptive care to keep her healthy. You didn’t just help her plan for a family; you made sure she could start one. And today, she’s got two beautiful kids. That’s what Planned Parenthood is about.”

Well, sure, in a way, Planned Parenthood is indeed about the kids. Countless women who walk into Planned Parenthood clinics indeed do it for the kids.

It reminds me of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic nearest to me, which has windows with colorful drawings and balloons, the look of a cheerful daycare center. The difference, however, is that mom and child walk in, but the child never returns. That’s really what Planned Parenthood “is about.”

Everyone knows it. Barack Obama knows it.

To that end, Obama promised he will always be there with Planned Parenthood “every step of the way.” I’m sure he will. He was with them in the Illinois state senate, when he refused to support legislation providing mandatory health care coverage for children that survive abortions. This master of mandatory universal care has found just one exception to his rule: the unborn. No health care for them. They are the only ones excluded from Obama’s universality.

Our president finished his speech tearfully: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”

God bless Planned Parenthood. So says the sitting president of the United States.

No doubt, the mainstream media enjoyed the love festival, giving it far more press than the Gosnell trial, where, incidentally, abortionist Kermit Gosnell agrees completely with Obama in not providing emergency health care coverage to babies that survive abortions. Ironically, Gosnell thereby defines “health care” just as Obama does.

Among Obama’s media sycophants, the AP, in yet another of the innumerable disgusting displays of “pro-choice” bias it has shown over the years, delivered this perfectly Orwellian summary of Obama’s Planned Parenthood appearance: “The president lauded Planned Parenthood’s nearly 100 years of providing cancer screenings, contraception and other health services for women.”

No mention of not only abortion but of Margaret Sanger’s initial passion for Planned Parenthood when she started it nearly 100 years ago: racial eugenics. Sanger likewise talked in deceptive terms of “health.” She wanted to foster “racial health,” as she called it. She wanted to rid the landscape of “human weeds” and “imbeciles” and “morons” and “idiots” — what she called the “feeble-minded” and “the dead weight of human waste.” She lamented America’s “race of degenerates.” The Planned Parenthood founder, committed as she was to her organization’s unique form of health care reform, created a “Negro Project.”

The KKK, naturally, developed its own love fest for Planned Parenthood. The boys in the white hoods adored Sanger’s work. So much so that KKK leaders invited the progressive heroine to one of their celebrations, which Sanger unhesitatingly accepted. She proudly addressed her hooded brothers at a rally in Silver Lake, New Jersey in 1926.

Years later, Sanger’s sisters at Planned Parenthood began an annual Sanger Award in her honor. The first recipient, amazingly, was Martin Luther King Jr. (no, I’m not kidding, look it up). A recent recipient of the award was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who, in happily accepting, blushed that she stood “in awe of” the pioneering racial eugenicist.

Of course, Sanger’s deepest legacy has been in black neighborhoods, where Planned Parenthood clinics have delivered not “beautiful kids” but horribly mutilated ones.

Speaking of which, as Obama spoke, Kermit Gosnell was on trial for years of precisely such deadly work in a black neighborhood in Philadelphia. Gosnell was in trouble not for shredding babies in the womb — that’s legal, of course — but killing them outside the womb. For liberals, severing a baby’s neck outside the womb is unacceptable, but to rip an unborn child apart limb by limb and piece by piece inside a womb a few seconds earlier… well, that’s fully acceptable.

That’s what Gosnell was doing, and in particular to black American children. He was a killing machine.

In truth, however, the doctor’s death toll can’t hold a candle to the slaughter orchestrated by Planned Parenthood’s “extraordinary doctors and nurses” and “advocates and staff” over the last 100 years. Their work is truly extraordinary. Just ask our president. “God bless” them, he says.

  • I read this article with barely controlled nausea: not for the article, which covers the facts, but for the contents.
    What else is there to say? Planned Parenthood is a bastion of racism, death and destruction.
    God have mercy on this president. Lord,. continue to change the hearts of abortion providers and staff, and lead them out of the darkness into truth.

  • Obama_Dogeater

    And how many “Catholics” voted for him and still support him?

  • chosen4life

    God have mercy on the USA – pray for God’s will be done with Barack Hussein Obama and his followers.

  • I remember the term that Vladimir Lenin used of those the Marxist regime could count on to help them, without knowing fully how they were being used, “Useful idiots”. Is not president Obama allowing himself to be a “Useful Idiot” of Satan who wishes to destroy life and to lead those who follow him in doing so to spend their eternity in hell forever? So, we must pray for our president that somehow he is given the grace to repent before it is too late.

  • It doesn’t help any that the LEFT considers us to have “evolved” from the apes. No, my fellow human beings on the LEFT, we are NOT descended from the apes, but, thanks to you, we are RAPDILY GETTING THERE.

    I did feel the chill of fear when I heard Obama claim God’s blessing on the advocates of infanticide. From Akita, “The good and bad alike will suffer if men do not amend their ways.”

  • Michael J Flynn

    Obama and all the other so called, “progressives” are in fact de-evolving. The practices of Planned Parenthood would have been endorsed by the ancient Spartans.

  • Richard III

    Not me. Never supported him. Never will.

  • Richard III

    So we’re DEvolving then?

    I hope this means we will never ever read a paragraph like this again.

    “Just weeks before the election, Cardinal Timothy Dolan – the
    most visible member of the hierarchy in this nation – wined and dined Barack
    Obama at the annual Al Smith Dinner, where he publicly anointed him an
    “honorable man,” while praising him for his “love for God and country.”

    Planned Parent Hood should have there FUNDS taken away, but in the end GOD will get them

  • Richard III

    Well done, Dr. Kengor. One very minor note is that when you point out that the word “abortion” was used 0 times by Obama while “health” was used 27 times, you said that “health” got mentioned 27 times more than “abortion” did. I know you were speaking in terms of addition ( 0 + 27 = 27), but you worded it more like multiplication, and any number multiplied by 0 equals 0, which would have meant that “health” was mentioned 0 times. Anyway, great job again, and lousy job, Obama and henchmen/henchchicks.

    Obama is an avowed abolitionist, not exactly like the Abe Lincoln he would like us believe he is or could ever be. He would rather have us abolish outdated religious norms which inhibit the process of implementing his version of human rights such as homosexual marriage, assisted suicide, and human cloning not to mention our Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

    Obama is a self styled and self inspired slick orator who appealed to those open to class warfare or spiritually and morally adrift with a broken rudder and searching sails looking for any new breeze to move their twisted emotions. His obsession with himself and his ideas miraculously manipulated by his handlers coupled with the sudden power he has obtained has loosed his lips to proclaim his hearts desire to transform society to fit his notion of socialist Utopia with a new age religion of secular relativity.

    Knowing and keenly aware personally of the fact that the election of 2008 put in the White House the most pro-abortion and anti-Christian president America could have ever imagined, he was quick to proudly and prophetically announce to the world what he had dreamed to proclaim, that “America is no longer a Christian nation…”

    The obscure local Chicago community organizer had, with all
    the subtlety of a politically contrived hurricane from hell, progressed from
    being a candidate with a pay scale too low to judge when life begins to over
    night becoming a president and secular messiah suddenly able to proudly
    defending partial birth abortions and leaving helpless living abortion
    surviving infants unattended until they die on the blood soaked floors of
    Planned Parenthood clinics or hospital operating rooms.

    All this under the guise of being “Christian” and getting daily scripture verses from minister who amazingly heaps praise on Obama for guiding our ship of state by following in the foot steps of Jesus. Is this not deceitful debauchery run wild?

    Me neither, even under torture. He’s not a nice man. He’s evil.

  • Richard III

    Obama’s only an “honorable man” in the same sense that Brutus & Company were “honorable men” in Marc Antony’s famous Shakespeare oration.

  • May 4th: Did anyone watch Fox News documentary Friday night about the Gosnell House of Horrors? This is the true face of ‘abortion’ and it does not matter whether an unborn infant’s life is terminated in a sterile environment or in a filthy, bloody one – the baby is dead. And the only reason this was exposed was that law enforcement went in looking for drugs and were horrified at what they saw. There were reports through the years about this place but because pro-death people fear tarnishing their death agenda, nothing happened. Now, the main stream media refuses to cover this monstrous Gosnell and instead covers and athlete who ‘came out’ as gay – and the President even called the athlete to congratulate him…for what? Did he call and congratulate those survivors of Benghazi for holding strong? NO! Instead, he never even called to check and see how our Ambassador and other Americans were doing after having heard they were under attack…he went on to Vegas to campaign and the Press continues to cover up for him…as they covered up for Gosnell for years and now that his murderous acts have been exposed, they continue to cover up for him by silence…but all will be held accountable – all!

  • And do not forget the Lord’s warning: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil!” They will be held accountable.

  • April 4th: I agree. I even wrote to Card. Dolan to beg him that if he felt he had to invite Obama then ask Obama publicly to declare a moratorium on the killing of the unborn during the dinner party – no response. Card. Dolan feels we should all be ‘benign’ in our responses and perhaps that is true…even St. Peter said we should tell the truth but do so respectfully…however, there is one area in which we cannot be ‘benign’ and that is the mass murder of human infants in the womb…while we are being ‘benign’ they are being slaughtered by the millions. And the fact that our Bishops permit those who not only support this mass murder but publicly and aggressively promote this mass murder to be Catholics in good standing is an evil in itself. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden stand with Planned Parenthood, receive money from them and promote their mass murder agenda aggressively in public defiance of the Church and urge others to stand with them against the Church and her teachings. If they want to claim that they don’t want to impose their beliefs on others fine…then stay quiet but don’t get out there in public and promote these mass murders, the genocide of the human race. Would Cardinal Dolan have given the Eucharist to Hitler’s henchmen? Or to Hitler…after all, Hitler didn’t actually do the killing – he promoted the mass slaughter. Pelosi and Biden and others are guilty of murder because they have not only consented to these murders, but have publicly and aggressively supported this genocide of the human race. Since they are affirmed in their sin, as evil as it is, and are permitted to receive the Eucharist as Catholics in good standing with the Church, many continue to believe that abortion is no big deal and that the Church isn’t serious about it…

    I have to echo Vicki’s sentiments on this one. I got sick to my stomach. I truly feel that Obama is just about as evil as they come. God have mercy on me say saying so. When he told a auditorium filled with college students that he partied harder then most of them, when he openly stated he would have his own grandchild murdered just so that his daughter could fullfill her dreams, when he openly mocked the Word of God….all before his first election and know one cared !!!! And they still don’t to this day. I grieve for my country and I grieve for my Church and it’s lack of leadership. When it had the power to do something it sat idol.
