After President Barack Obama’s nomination of liberal appeals court judge Merrick Garland to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, the CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business was spotted entering the White House. Now we know why Cecile Richards paid the president a visit: he anted to lavish her with praise.

Obama used a Women’s History Month reception at the White House to praise Richards, the head of the nation’s biggest abortion business, as a “real-life superhero.” His praise is not surprise considering he’s done Planned Parenthood’s bidding his entire presidency and the abortion company will be doing heavy lifting in an attempt to force the Senate to vote on Garland’s nomination.

Here’s what Obama said about Richards as a superhero:

“We’ve got a lot of them in this room, so I want to acknowledge a couple of them.”

He prioritized Richards on that list.

“First of all, we’ve got Cecile Richards in the house, making sure women’s health care is on the front burner,” Obama said.

Even though polling data consistently shows Americans are pro-life and oppose almost all abortions, Obama says Richards represents most Americans.

“When it’s long past time for our leaders to reflect the majority of the population. Wouldn’t it be better for America if women weren’t discouraged from seeking office because of double standards, and we had more women in positions of power and high office?” Obama said. “I want to be clear. I’m not stereotyping here. But I’m pretty sure if we had more women in charge things would work better.”

Yesterday, the abortion corporation praised Garland and demanded the Senate hold a vote on is nomination.

On Facebook, Planned Parenthood praise Garland, saying, “Here’s what you need to know about President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland: He’s an intelligent, highly accomplished judge with a record of bipartisan support. There is no reason for the Senate GOP leadership to obstruct justice and refuse to give Judge Garland a fair hearing.”

Top pro-life groups told LifeNews.com that nothing has changed since Scalia’s passing in terms of their opposition to a vote on any Obama Supreme Court nominee. They say anyone Obama nominates for the Supreme Court will vote to uphold abortion on demand, ergo they will oppose a vote on Garland’s nomination.

Leading pro-life advocates agree the Senate should not vote on Scalia’s replacement until after a new president has been selected.

Garland has praised the author of Roe v. Wade and said his court paper are “the greatest gift to the country.”
