Obama: I “Wont Give Any Ground” Defending Unlimited Abortion

President Barack Obama made it clear, yet again, that he will not yield when it comes to promote and supporting abortion on demand for any reason throughout pregnancy.

Appearing at a conference of liberal bloggers in New York City, Obama pledged “not to give any ground” when it comes to the issue of abortion.

“Millions of young women have coverage through their parents’ plans. They are beginning to gain access to contraception at no additional cost. I’m not going to give any ground to those who would deny women their own health care choices,” he told the liberal bloggers at the Blog Her event. “Women should have control over decisions that affect your health, your lives, your careers.”

According to a Washington Times report, Obama “then pivoted to a completely political plea, arguing that women who share his beliefs about their control over their health care needs and their lives couldn’t face a bigger choice this election.”

The comments from Obama came on the same day he met with officials from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business, immediately after exiting Air Force One today at a campaign stop in Florida.

The Hill carried more informationon the meeting:

The two women, Jenna Cawley Tosh and Nancy Wolf, were part of a group that greeted Obama on the tarmac as he stepped off Air Force One.  Obama “spent time talking with each” before moving on to work a rope line, according to a White House pool report. Tosh and Wolf are President/CEO and Board Chairwoman of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, respectively.

Earlier this year, First Lady Michelle Obama was in Florida for a private lunch reception with supporters of Obama’s re-election campaign. While there, she met with an activist from the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Although Obama is willing to meet with officials of the abortion company, his administration appears unwilling to investigate a recent death involving a botched legal abortion that claimed a young woman’s life in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List says one of the biggest issues for pro-lifers is the connection between Obama and the abortion giant, which is working overtime to re-elect the president.



“It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood sees 2012 as an opportunity to bury the pro-life movement. They’ll spend whatever it takes to defend Barack Obama and his pro-abortion Congressional allies,” she said. “And it’s not hard to see why. President Obama said he supports Planned Parenthood because he wants his two daughters to be able to “control their own health care choices.”

“If anything, Planned Parenthood is smart. They know the best thing they can do to expand abortion is to win big in the 2012 election by propping-up pro-abortion politicians. They will spend millions to see this happen. It’s our mission to ensure they don’t succeed,” she said. “Time is running out for you to have a significant impact on the 2012 elections.”
