1. Obama: Planned Parenthood Is ‘Not Going Anywhere’


Obama: Planned Parenthood Is ‘Not Going Anywhere’

President Obama on Friday at a Planned Parenthood gala in Washington said the women's health organization is "not going anywhere," despite GOP-led efforts to defund it.

"It's not going anywhere today, it's not going anywhere tomorrow," Obama said, according to a rush transcript. "As long as we've got a fight to make sure women have access to affordable, quality health care, and as long as we've got to fight to protect a woman's right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you've also got a President who's going to be right there, fighting every step of the way."

5. It is far more than any other sitting President has done.

As a woman, I appreciate the response. He also fought for VAWA. A cause I hold dear. Anyone, everyone that has a woman in their lives should respect that.

Do you ever give him credit for anything?

7. Let me put it like this. I very much support Planned Parenthood. And I hope he can do something to

 

help them. But he has given lots of speeches that for one reason or another he hasnt been able to follow thru.

I am glad to give him credit. But I work with the poor and homeless and see very little has been done to help them. I see friends and family losing homes and retirements. Now he wants to cut Social Security. And Wall Street continues their corrupt practices.

I hope he can help Planned Parenthood, but I will believe it when I see it.

4. That's right..

"When politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they're not just talking about you," Obama said, becoming the first sitting president to address the abortion-rights group in person. "They're talking about the millions of women who you serve."

Now his party is desperate to destroy it.
