In the midst of the Kermit Gosnell trial, one of the most horrific abortion criminal cases in American history, which shed light on an abortionist who murdered hundreds of live born babies, President Obama used his time to become the first sitting President to address Planned Parenthood. In his speech, where he vowed to fight for Planned Parenthood and work his hardest to expand abortion opportunities for women, Obama also invoked the name of The Lord telling America’s biggest abortion provider, “God bless you.”
Here is the video of Obama’s statement:
As Beginning and End has covered in past articles, Planned Parenthood has been caught in numerous unethical and illegal activities. Whether it is covering up statutory rape, approving of gender-based abortions or the targeting of minority neighborhoods for their abortion centers, Planned Parenthood’s history is full of sinful rebellion against God. In our article “Silent Genocide: One In Three African-American Babies Aborted”, we reported on the horrific statistic that one-third of African-American babies are aborted in America. And Planned Parenthood’s own origins were based on the desire to eliminate the African-American population in the United States. In our article, we chronicle Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and her open desire to promote eugenics-based “Master Race” ideology and to sterilize African-Americans and other racial minorities. Ironically, Obama, the nation’s first African-American President has been the most ardent and passionate Presidential supporter of Planned Parenthood in history. All the while, he constantly professes his Christian faith.
The Bible is clear that abortion is murder:
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. – Psalm 139:13-14.
In this Psalm King David, under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote about God’s creative process in the womb. In Scripture, when a couple conceived, the wife was described as “with child.” And the Bible says of those who would kill innocents: “Cursed [be] he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person” (Deuteronomy 27:25). There are none more innocent and defenseless than babies in the womb, and yet Planned Parenthood has made untold millions of dollars from murdering them. Psalm 11:5 says: “The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.” Yet despite these clear teachings, the Christian President continues to g out of his way to support Planned Parenthood and even wish God’s blessing on this organization.
“If there’s one thing the past few years have shown is that Planned Parenthood isn’t going anywhere,” Obama said as the crowd cheered. “It’s not going anywhere today, it’s not going anywhere tomorrow.” Obama was wildly received by the audience when he entered the room – the first sitting president to address the nation’s largest abortion provider.
“Everybody sit down,” Obama said sheepishly. “You’re making me blush.”
In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood revealed that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization. (source).
The President, mass media and many influential Hollywood figures have made it their aim to cast the image of abortion as a battle for “women’s rights.” In their rhetoric, they attempt to paint those who oppose the murder of the unborn and live birth babies after failed abortions as bigots who want to oppress the political rights of women. The President made this clear in his speech to Planned Parenthood:
“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.”
Obama asserted that “an assault on women’s rights” is underway across the country, with bills introduced in more than 40 states to limit or ban abortion or restrict access to birth control or other services.
“The fact is, after decades of progress, there’s still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century,” he said. “And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health.”
Last month, North Dakota Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed a law that bans abortions as early as six weeks, or when a fetal heartbeat is detected, making the state the most restrictive in the nation in which to get the procedure. (source).
Obama refers to abortion as an issue of “women’s health” with no mention of the baby at all. In fact his speech was even more brazen when one considers that the Kermit Gosnell trial, one of the most horrific cases of abuses and murder in the abortion industry, was taking place the same day. The President has also said in the past has said he would rather his own daughters have legal access to kill their babies in the womb than be “punished with a baby at 16.” As the leader of the United States of America, his attitude makes it much more justifiable for those in society to also see supporting access to abortion as a ‘noble’ and ‘just’ cause. And this is in sinful rebellion against The Lord. The Bible says: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21).
Pray for President Obama to truly understand God’s Word over his own “wisdom” and to no longer defend the evil of abortion as good. And pray for those involved in the abortion industry to fail in their efforts to lure more women and young girls into thinking they are doing a good thing and defending their equality in society by taking the lives of their baby.
Jesus Christ, whom the President called a “wonderful teacher” said this with respect to children:
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! – Matthew 18:1-7.
