Update (4:08 p.m.): White House spokesman Jay Carney announced Wednesday that President Obama has canceled plans to deliver the keynote address at Planned Parenthood’s annual dinner, the Washington Times reports. Obama will instead address the gathering Friday morning.
President Obama must feel pretty invincible these days. Even as Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia for killing babies born alive during abortions, the president is scheduled to give the keynote address at the Planned Parenthood annual fundraising dinner Thursday in Washington, D.C.
Somewhat ironically, in light of the gruesome revelations coming out of the Gosnell trial, the theme of the dinner is a “Time for Care,” the Washington Times reports.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America, with 40 percent of all reported abortions — 329,445 in their last reported year — occurring at their facilities, according to the American Center for Law and Justice.
Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said Obama has done more than any president in history for women’s health — see abortion — and she is delighted to have him help promote the gala dinner with his presence.
“He understands that access to birth control and preventive health care are economic issues for women and their families,” she said in a statement.
What Obama and the Democratic Party understand is how important women are to their overall success.
The results of the 2012 presidential election show an 18-point gender gap that largely contributed to the president’s reelection. According to CNN’s exit polls, 55 percent of women voted for Obama, while only 44 percent voted for Mitt Romney.
Who, besides Sandra Fluke, knew free contraceptives where so important?
