Obama's video in support of Planned Parenthood: Rapid fire deception

You can't fool all the people all of the time, but President Obama and Planned Parenthood have honed deception to a fine art.

Witness the recent video released by Obama which regurgitates, in less than two minutes, the most common lies that we have heard ad nauseam in support of Planned Parenthood and abortion. The supportive comments below the video show that Obama and PP can fool a lot of the people a lot of the time.

"Protecting women's health is a mission that stands above politics," he says in the politically charged video.

The video was released via an e-mail from Planned Parenthood head, Cecile Richards, and blasts Republicans for threatening to "shut down the government" if Planned Parenthood was not defunded. Excuse me, but the Obama administration shut down federal aid to women in Texas because Texas refused to fund Planned Parenthood. Clearly, it is Obama who is playing politics with women's health.

In the video, Obama blamed politicians for wanting to "deny women the medical care they have come to rely on." Pardon me for bringing up a minute detail, but killing babies is not, and never has been, "health care."

And as for women's reliance upon abortion, he would have been much more accurate had he said men have come to rely on abortion in order to enable them to shirk all responsibility for their actions.

Obama's comment eerily echoes the words of Supreme Court justice Kennedy in justifying his refusal to cast a vote to overturn Roe in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Justice Kennedy said that even if Roe had been wrongly decided - which he previously stated it had been - he would not overturn the decision because women have come to rely on abortion. Well, thieves have come to rely upon thievery, rapists have come to rely on rape, and child molesters have come to rely upon molesting children for their sexual satisfaction. It makes no sense to sanction any of those things because a section of the citizenry has come to rely upon it. Yet women who have supposedly come to rely on killing their children to solve their problems are accommodated by the Supreme Court.

The politicians, Obama stated, "inject themselves into a decision that is best made between a woman and her doctor." Woops, I guess he "forgot" that there are no doctors on staff at Planned Parenthood. The only time a doctor shows up is on abortion day, and he is not at all involved in the decision-making process. But those are little details our president chooses to overlook.

"Women are perfectly capable of making their own choices," he says. Woops again. He fails to mention that a study conducted on post-abortive Russian and American women showed that 64 percent of the women felt pressured to abort.

Obama implies that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms, which it has admitted it does not. He implies that Planned Parenthood's cervical cancer screenings enable women to sleep at night, yet the pills that PP hands out like candy are Group 1 carcinogens known to increase the risk of cervical, breast, and liver cancer. He implies that Planned Parenthood enables women to choose when to become mothers through the use of contraception, without mentioning that half of the women who have abortions were using some form of contraception during the month they became pregnant.

After spitting out at least 10 rapid fire lies in the first 60 seconds of the video, he is going to tell us the "true" intent behind politicians who want to defund Planned Parenthood: "So when some professional politicians casually say that they'll get rid of Planned Parenthood, don't forget what they're really talking about - eliminating the funding for preventive care that millions of women rely on, and leaving them to fend for themselves."

So now, according to our president, killing babies is preventive care. Failure to do mammograms is preventive care. Passing out pills that increase the risk of cervical, breast, and liver cancer is preventive care. Never mind that there are thousands of federally funded health centers across the U.S. that women can turn to for real health needs and preventive care - facilities that do not commit abortions.

President Obama ends by promising to stand beside Planned Parenthood as long as he is president.

Planned Parenthood is a house built on lies, supported by a president who doesn't mind telling lies and distorting the truth in order to defend the abortion giant for political gain. Meanwhile, the people perish for lack of knowledge.
