Obama Makes Historic Speech to Planned Parenthood

Ad Feedback

President Obama became the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood in person on Friday. He spoke at the group's National Conference in Washington -- a fundraiser for the nation's number one abortion provider.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards set the stage in her introduction, "Because of President Obama, being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition in America."

As expected the president matched her words and the expectation of the crowd in his speech. He told them states across the country want to turn back the clock on abortion to the 1950's. "No matter how great the challenge of opposition ...Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere," he said.

"It's not going anywhere today, it's not going anywhere tomorrow," he continued.

Pro-life advocates say Mr. Obama is talking out of both sides of his mouth.

"One side of him says I'm for gun rights or to limit gun rights, I want to protect life of human beings. On another side he says I'm all for letting these kinds of atrocities go on, on the abortion level," Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor and Pro-life advocate, told CBN News.

Planned Parenthood received $542 million in federal funding in 2012.
