Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The national Planned Parenthood abortion business is waiting on its local affiliates to affirm a unanimous vote by its board of directors to endorse Barack Obama. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England voted unanimously to ratify that decision and other local affiliates are expected to follow suit.
After Planned Parenthood voted to endorse Obama it now needs at least 60 percent of its local affiliates around the country to accept the decision.
Nancy Mosher, the head of the New England affiliate, said approving the decision to support Obama, who supports abortion funding at taxpayer expense and without any limits, was easy.
The PPNNE Action Fund, representing southern Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, has joined in a national groundswell to support the best and only pro-choice candidate for president, she said.
She said the Planned Parenthood activists in the northeast states "wholeheartedly agree" with the idea of endorsing Obama.
Senator Obama has a long and consistent record of standing up for [abortion]," Mosher continued.
Mosher said her group will work with the national organization to "educate voters about John McCains unacceptable record in regard to" abortion.
"In 25 years in Washington, John McCain has earned a zero percent voting record from Planned Parenthood," she said. "Senator McCain has also denounced Roe v. Wade as bad law.
Following ratification by state and local action funds, the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund will make official its endorsement of Senator Barack Obama for president.
