Obama to Planned Parenthood in 2007: “Reproductive care” is at the center of my health-care plan

posted at 6:27 pm on August 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

Yet another case of our savior being unable to get his story straight. Via Ace, here he is yesterday pandering to religious leaders. Mind you, even the Associated Press grudgingly admitted two weeks ago that the current House bill would use tax money for abortions.

In a late Wednesday conference call with several left-wing faith groups that supported his presidential bid, President Barack Obama claimed it is a “fabrication” and “distraction” to say abortion funding is included in the health care reform plans pending in Congress.

He said it is false to suggest that the government-run health care plan he favors would result in “government funding of abortions,” and that this is “untrue.”

And here he is two years ago using dainty abortion euphemisms to promise a group that already gets $350 million in taxpayer money each year that the cash will keep flowing under ObamaCare, per our little “partnership” agreement with God. Does this guy really not understand why so many people are suspicious of his intentions with health-care reform? He’s following the same shady pattern here as he did with the public option and single-payer: He tells the country one thing, then video of his ideological allies contradicting him starts to come out, then inevitably some older video of Obama himself contradicting his current position emerges. Given his hardline support for abortion and the sort of barely coded promise to his base that you see below, why would anyone trust him not to use ObamaCare to start paying for it? (Besides Doug Kmiec, I mean.) And given the inertia towards waste and bankruptcy in any government program, why would anyone trust ObamaCare to work at all? Fun fact: Increasingly, they don’t.

“dainty, abortion euphemisms” -Funny-

I wonder if the left will entertain the idea that once we’re all, “in the Obamacare system” will they decide that a woman who’s had an abortion, and theoretically has been counseled as to what caused the need for the abortion and given birth control in order to prevent another abortion, if that woman shows up for a 2nd abortion, will they decide this woman needs to be sterilized?

Seriously. How far are they going to take this crap?

anniekc on August 20, 2009 at 6:44 PM

I am against abortion. But I do really, really, really wish that not only obamas mamma practiced “reproductive care” before he was born, but I also wish the same for pelosi, reid, frank, dodd, emmanuel, etc. as well.

Yes I’m mean. What are YOU gonna do about it? Huh? Come on, I’m waiting.

Spiritk9 on August 20, 2009 at 6:45 PM

Give the guy a break… when you tell a different lie for every situation, every day, it’s hard to keep it all straight.

I’m sure that his “partnership with God” is the story he’ll be sticking with for a while.

Well, at least until the Lefties all start screaming about his invoking God.

Why aren’t they screaming yet, by the way?

Take the money given to faith-based initiatives and funnel it to Planned Parenthood.

Use taxpayer dollars for reproductive care and women’s health issues.

Abolish abstinence-only education and let women have subsidized access to birth control.

All of this stuff is happening under this administration.

And there isn’t a damn thing you can do about it! =]

BO is in his favorite element. He is talking about how he loves to keep abortion legal. With this group, he can talk freely without worry of a slipup and he is with friends. Plus his government run media well make everything just right for him tonight on the news. The trouble is that when BO passes on he will have to justify supporting this on going murder to his Lord.

And the news media? The just enable him. Don’t call him on his continued insistence that “if you like your plan you can keep it”, that “50 million Americans are without health insurance” , that abortion will not be federally funded (he’s careful in this statement because he’s going to claim that the paid premiums pay for the abortion part instead of federal funds even though some people won’t pay a dime in premiums), and finally that illegals won’t be covered.

Since every amendment to clarify no abortion or illegal coverage has been shot down, of course these things will be covered.
