Video: Obama message to Planned Parenthood supporters oddly silent about key Planned Parenthood service

posted at 9:44 pm on March 28, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the boss emeritus’s new Twitter aggregator Twitchy. I hate to say it but after watching this I think there might be something to the DNC’s “war on women” message. It’s inexplicable that the GOP wants to yank federal funding for this excellent health organization that provides cancer screenings and contraception and apparently nothing else. Can anyone blame the left for having a screeching, frothing-at-the-mouth fit whenever a conservative suggests having PP pay its own way? They’re all about protecting contraception and cancer screenings and nothing else.

I’m trying to decide whether I prefer his elephant-in-the-room silence here or his cynical dissembling about his true position on gay marriage. Look on the bright side, pro-choicers: He may be afraid to utter the A-word, venturing no closer than gassy euphemisms about “women’s health,” but at least he’ll admit to being on your side when pressed. If an abortion bill made it to his desk tomorrow, he’d say a few words in your favor and sign it. Whereas if a gay marriage bill made it to his desk, he’d … do what? Say a few words against it, then sign it? I prefer the comparative honesty of the silence-and-euphemisms approach. And hey, maybe he’ll be bolder in his next vid as we get closer to election day. Look for something vague about relief from “burdens.” Exit question: Do you suppose PP’s federal funding problem would be solved if it chose to no longer do “nothing else”?

The ethic of the left is that it’s like the baby was never really there if you don’t say the “a” word. I mean, we wouldn’t want to punish people with a baby.

Hello? Your fail is here! Ain’t ya gonna open it????

George Zimmerman, the man who set off a nationwide furor when he shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to death in Florida on Feb. 26, is a registered Democrat and self-identified Hispanic, according to a state document released on Tuesday. Zimmerman’s state voter registration document shows that the 28-year-old registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in 2002. Zimmerman apparently went on to identify himself as a Hispanic American, according to the document, which was released Tuesday by the Washington Free Beacon.

cynccook on March 28, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Obama is such a coward. Say it, what he sells is the killing of innocents. Mammogram, other services by PP are insignificant. They kill babies. Abortion stops a beating heart. Wonder how many little Obama’s have been snuffed?

StevC on March 28, 2012 at 11:36 PM

There are only 4 potential truths about abortion:
1- not life and we know not life = ok
2 Not life but we do not know not life = criminal negligence/ reckless endangerment
3- life but we do not know it is life= manslaughter
4 life and we know it is life= murder.
So, the burden is on pro choice folks to PROVE it is not a life or it is some form of crime

Corinthian on March 28, 2012 at 11:39 PM

This is perverse.
Obama is exactly the type of person the founder of Planned Parenthood wanted to abort.

Sanger: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the N***o population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Every year there are nearly a half a million black babies aborted. Why isn’t Obama outraged about this and the fact that Planned Parenthood targets blacks by placing their abortion clinics in black neighborhoods?

Do you suppose PP’s federal funding problem would be solved if it chose to no longer do “nothing else”?

I imagine they’d be in a better financial position if they even just made the “nothing else” into a seperate organization that PP sent referals to when women come in with “burdens” they no longer want. Even as a pro-lifer I do find honorable things about the organization that I wish I could support.

But what do I know? I’m a man with breast, not a real woman like a lib who knows that women’s health care is about nothing more than abortion.

This is why i hate the democratic party. liars and cowards and brilliant deceivers all at the same time.

Again, they never come forward and express their true intent. its all about distractions, feints, code words and out right lies to hide an actual agenda that for some reason they cant seem to openly and honestly want to defend.

You want higher gas prices for the public good? Embrace it, defend it…shout it from the rooftops.

You pro choice and pro abortion? embrace your issue openly and honestly.

You want a single payer health care system….then pass one an open and honest debate without
the parlimentary trickery in the middle of the night to pass a legislative nightmare thats simply a wedge to get to a single payer health system.

I hate the progressive democrats for consistent dishonesty in talking about their true intent.

Exactly! They know that the pendulum has swung in favor of pro-life/anti-abortion. They know that if ‘abortion rights’ came up for a vote they’d lose resoundingly. They’re at the point where they daren’t even mention the a-word, so they’re recrafting the language and think we’re too stupid to understand it. Womens Health = Abortion; Womens Reproductive Choices = Abortion; Decisions Betwee A Woman and Her Doctor = Abortion. We’re not stupid and we’re not buying it.
