Obama’s Achilles’ Heel - preborn babies

Posted by   + Show Post


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 26, 2013 (American Life League) - Apparently there is something about the juxtaposition of an abortionist who kills born-alive babies and a Planned Parenthood “gala” that turned the president’s tummy. Or at least that is what some are suggesting.

The White House says that Obama wanted to spend more time with the families of the Texas explosion victims and therefore had to cancel his Thursday evening Planned Parenthood gig.

Barack Obama had little to say about Kermit Gosnell on the
Barack Obama had little to say about Kermit Gosnell on the "Today" Show.

But lest you think he may have had a change of heart or actually developed a dislike for the world’s leading abortion marketing group, let me be clear: He has not. In fact, he spoke to the organization’s gathering today instead of being in its presence last night.

This is what we do know about the Obama, Gosnell, Planned Parenthood conundrum: Since Kermit Gosnell went on trial to face capital murder charges, Planned Parenthood has been nearly silent. The Gosnell trial has been replete with horrific details. The facts were so bad from the start that, according to LifeSiteNews, “Gosnell has been denied bail while the case against him moves forward. Women have spoken out about their treatment and one woman says she was drugged and tied up and forced to have an abortion.”

During the entire trial the Obama White House has remained silent. Some have noted that the reason for this is that during an ongoing trial the president never makes a statement, no matter what the case involves. Perhaps.

But not all bastions of abortion have been silent. 

Click "like" if you want to end abortion!

Apparently the Gosnell situation is so bad that the National Abortion Federation (NAF), which accredits abortion mills, voted to suspend memberships with abortion facilities connected with Gosnell in Delaware and Louisiana. What this means is that the NAF will no longer refer women to those locations if they are seeking an abortion. However, it is important to note that the organization did the same thing once before in 2011, so chances are the sanctions will not last.  But at least it did something!

Planned Parenthood, on the other hand, has done all it can to avoid condemning Gosnell and his brutal practices. The organization Tweeted once saying, “Gosnell case is appalling. He ran a criminal enterprise, not a health facility, and should be punished to full extent.” 

But this is the only negative we have seen from the abortion behemoth. 

Hence, I have come to the conclusion that there are so many similarities between Barack Obama’s philosophy and Planned Parenthood’s practices that his decision to cancel out on the “gala” has nothing to do with Gosnell, period.

Pro-lifers might want to think this is so because it makes them feel good, but let’s get real!

Obama has said time and again that he supports Planned Parenthood. Even when Live Action caught its shenanigans on tape, lying to young women, Obama defended Planned Parenthood, telling the media, “You know my bottom line is I think that Planned Parenthood in the past has done good work. If there was a specific problem at this center, it should be addressed, but we shouldn’t get so distracted with some of these issues.”

Now my tummy is soured.

Obama deceives the public. Planned Parenthood deceives the public. Together, they make up two peas in a very deadly pod. No, Obama is not distancing himself from Planned Parenthood because of the Philadelphia butcher. He probably really did want to stay in Texas a bit longer for the sake of the families of those killed in the fertilizerplant explosion. 

Born people who die tragically seem to get Obama’s attention; it’s the preborn ones he cannot stand to acknowledge!

Prove it. Link? And the entire tea party is offensive to this country


Quoting CJWhodunit:

"Teabagger" is as offensive to me, a Tea Party believer, as the n-word.



Obama believes that "Pre-viable fetuses" that are born alive during botched abortions should be killed to keep Roe v. Wade in force. This is well documented by many sources.



THAT is not only offensive to not just Tea Party activists like myself, but ALL people with a sense of simple HUMAN decency. What Kermit Gosnell was paid to do with MY tax dollars for decades is offensive and immoral.



And what is also offensive is that in a lot of other PP 'clinics' it's still going on. :*(



God bless all those murdered babies in the past, and the ones to be murdered... it is the utmost abomination of our time in history. :*(

Planned Parenthood, Philly Archdiocese equally dismayed


Along with Planned Parenthood of Southeast Pennsylvania, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia condemned the alleged practices of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. The 69-year-old doctor was arrested and charged Wednesday with eight counts of murder in the alleged killings of seven babies and the death of a woman from an overdose of painkillers.

Nine of Gosnell’s employees — including Upper Darby resident Adrienne Moton — also were charged.

“As Catholics, we believe in the dignity and sacredness of all human life from conception until natural death,” wrote Kenneth Gavin, archdiocese associate director of communications, in an e-mailed statement.

“The repeated actions of Dr. Gosnell and his staff were abhorrent and intrinsically evil in their disregard for the lives of the unborn and the welfare of the women who sought their services,” Gavin stated.

Planned Parenthood of Southeast Pennsylvania President and CEO Dayle Steinberg said her organization also strongly condemned Gosnell’s alleged actions.

“We would condemn any physician who does not follow the law or endangers anyone’s health,” Steinberg said. “All women should have access to high-quality care when they are vulnerable and facing difficult decisions.”


Steinberg said the news surrounding Gosnell’s arrest was not the first time he popped up on her organization’s radar. Planned Parenthood had been hearing unsubstantiated rumors about his clinic for several years, Steinberg said.

It was not until the last few years that the organization began hearing rumors of his services “not being high quality.”

“When we hear rumors like this, we encourage patients to complain to the Department of Health,” said Steinberg.

Moton, 33, of Hampton Road, is facing murder and related charges in connection with the death of a baby born alive at Women’s Medical Society, the clinic run by Gosnell.

According to the Philadelphia district attorney’s grand jury report, Moton “knew Gosnell through his niece and spent time with his family. She worked evenings to assist with abortions, but, like the others, had no relevant training or license. She assisted with procedures and cut the spinal cords of aborted babies.”

Abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell Condemned by Pro-Abortion Rights Groups

The defense of controversial abortion Dr. Kermitt Gosnell gets underway in Phialdelphia this week, but he cannot expect any support from some of the country's most pro abortion rights advocacy organizations who "unequivocally denounced" his practice.

Leaders from Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation said that Gosnell's abortion clinic was an affront to high-quality, safe abortion clinics who operate under proper regulations across the country.

Gosnell's attorneys were supposed to begin their defense today but it was postponed until Tuesday due to illness on the defense team. The trial is entering its sixth week of testimony in the high-profile trial, which could result in the death penalty for Gosnell.

The Philadelphia doctor is accused of killing infants after they were delivered live at his abortion clinic and blamed for the death of a woman during an abortion.

"We have consistently said that this is a horrifying and outrageous case, that Gosnell ran a criminal enterprise, not a health care facility, and that he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law," Eric Ferrero, a spokesman for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, told ABC News recently.

Gosnell, 69, is accused of running an abortion clinic in which none of his medical staff were properly licensed or trained, and in which he would allegedly induce labor in women who were six, seven, or eight months pregnant and then kill the newborn children after they were delivered, according to ABC News affiliate WPVI. He is charged with killing seven infants and one mother, who died of an overdose of Demerol.

Prosecutors are entering the sixth week of the trial as they continue to present witnesses to testify about the conditions inside the clinic, including Gosnell's practice of keeping aborted fetuses and body parts in jars on shelves, according to testimony recounted by ABC News affiliateWPVI.

Gosnell has pleaded not guility.

The case flared into headlines recently as anti-abortion rights groups complained that the media was not covering the case with any prominence and suggested it was because the media was liberal and did not want to expose the grisly details of late term abortions.

But groups that would normally defend late term abortions said that is not what they consider the Gosnell case to be about. These groups consider the trial to be about illegal abortions performed under dangerous circumstances.

Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said that Gosnell's practice was clearly illegal and substandard, and demonstrated the conditions some women are willing to go through to secure an abortion.

"What Gosnell was doing, at least as described by the grand jury report, was illegal from top to bottom under current state and federal law, so the fact that he was able to continue operating and particularly preying on poor women and women who felt they had no other options is indicative of what happens when you drive abortion underground and to back alley providers," she said.

"We think the Gosnell case is exactly why we need to keep abortion safe and legal and accessible to all people," Hogue said.

Prosecutors have laid out grim details as they have presented their case to a Philadelphia jury over the past five weeks, describing how Gosnell allegedly used scissors to snip the spinal chord of newborns after they had emerged, alive, from delivery.

"If the baby is alive and you don't want it to be, that doesn't mean you have the right to take a pair of scissors and plunge it into the baby's neck," prosecutor Joanne Pescatore said during opening statements.

Gosnell is fighting the charges. His attorney, Jack J. McMahon called the trial "an elitist, racist prosecution," noting that his client, a black man, mainly treated women of color.

Ppl think this man was the exception in the abortion industry, truth told he's the norm. When you work with post abortive women they always tell you they didn't have a choice but to abort. They are pressured and denied informed choices. Then they are treated like second class citizens with botched surgeries. Pp had a public case this year of a woman being rushed to the hospital.

I'm sure that YOU believe that. You can't convince me that it is indeed the norm.

Where in the constitution does it say women have a right to abortion or even that its our to right have "choice"? Just curious.....

Quoting teri4lance:

One person abusing patients has nothing to do with our constitutional rights. It doesnt change the need for women to have say over their body.
