During his time as president, pro-life advocates have sometimes referred to President Barack Obama as the Abortion President because of his extensive list of actions pushing abortion and abortion funding.
Obama appears to have cemented that title by becoming the first president to call the nation’s biggest abortion business to thank them.
While millions of Americans probably spent their Sunday going to church, spending time with family or watching football together in the living room, President Obama called the nation’s number one abortion giant to say thanks.
“Yesterday @BarackObama called to thank PP for all we’re doing. He knows how important this election is for @PPFAQ patients. Let’s win this,” Richards said in her tweet Monday afternoon.
On the same day Obama called Planned Parenthood to thank them, his opponent Mitt Romney called for overturning Roe v. Wade and de-funding the abortion business of the international money it gets to promote and perform abortions overseas.
“Well, I don’t actually make the decision the Supreme Court makes and so they’ll have to make their own decision,” he said about Roe.
“And it would be my preference that they reverse Roe V. Wade and therefore they return to the people and their elected representatives the decisions with regards to this important issue. And I hope to appoint justices for the Supreme Court that will follow the law and the constitution.”
“But, for instance, I’ll reverse the president’s decision on using U.S. funds to pay for abortion outside this country,” Romney said. “I don’t think also the taxpayers here should have to pay for abortion in this country. Those things I think are consistent with my pro-life position.”
As to abortion itself, Romney replied to a question from host David Gregory with: “Well there are a number of things I think need to be said about preserving and protecting the life of the unborn child and I recognize there are two lives involved; the mom’s and the unborn child.
I believe that people of good conscience have chosen different paths in this regard but I have chosen pro-life and I will attempt as president to encourage pro-life policies,” Romney stated.
