President Obama praises Planned Parenthood, lashes out at pro-lifers

Catholic World News - April 26, 2013

In an address to a Planned Parenthood fundraiser, US President Barack Obama charged that pro-life activists are engaged in "an assault on women's rights."

Hailing Planned Parenthood's work, Obama said that "there's still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s." He concluded his remarks to Planned Parenthood by saying: "God bless you."

    "...US President Barack Obama charged that pro-life activists are engaged in "an assault on women's rights." " Er, isn't the President engaged in an assault on the First Amendment rights of all Americans? You know, all that freedom of religion stuff, when Christians are supposed to have the right of freedom of conscience, and not be forced to do anything that violates their sense of morality and sexual ethics? It certainly looks like the First Amendment is becoming a dead letter.

    Not surprising but sad nevertheless. He is a lost soul in need of a moral miracle.

    Every day for over four years our family has asked God to protect us from the Obamas.

    The President should be careful what he wishes for. I also ask God to bless Planned Parenthood.
