In a not so shocking statement from the White House, Barack Hussein Obama vowed to veto a new bill in the House of Representatives that was passed on Friday by a vote of 241-187 that would end government funding of Planned Parenthood across the board. By doing this, Obama is openly professing support for the criminal actions of Planned Parenthood, including murder and the ghoulish act of harvesting live babies’ organs.
According to Newsweek, the vote on the bill “was divided along party lines.”
The vote came to the forefront in the political arena after the Center for Medical Progress exposed what Planned Parenthood was doing beyond murdering babies. Not only were they harvesting the babies’ organs, but they were engaging in trafficking them illegally and even keeping babies alive in order to harvest such organs as their brains.
Life News reports on the bill:
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by pro-life Congressman Trent Franks would make failure to provide standard medical care to children born alive during an abortion a federal crime. It would also apply stronger penalties in cases where an overt act is taken to kill the abortion survivor.
Under the pro-life bill, slated to get a full House vote later this week, there is also a civil right of action for mothers of children who survive an abortion to hold the abortion provider accountable.
Frankly, I don’t’ think the bill goes far enough. Congress was not given authority in the Constitution to provide funding for any private entity like Planned Parenthood, but at least it is looking to end the funding for Planned Parenthood.
However, the Obama administration isn’t having any of it and will pitch an executive temper tantrum to show they don’t want any of it.
In a statement from the White House, the administration said that they “strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 3134 and H.R. 3504 because the bills, while different, would have the same consequence of limiting women’s health care choices.”
“H.R. 3134 would defund Planned Parenthood based on its provision of abortion services,” the policy continued. “Planned Parenthood uses both Federal and non-Federal funds to provide a range of important preventive care and health services, including health screenings, vaccinations, and check-ups to millions of men and women who visit their health centers annually. Longstanding Federal policy already prohibits the use of Federal funds for abortions, except in cases of rape or incest or when the life of the woman would be endangered. By eliminating Federal funding for a major provider of health care, H.R. 3134 would limit access to health care for men, women, and families across the Nation, and would disproportionately impact low-income individuals.”
“H.R. 3504 would impose new legal requirements related to the provision of abortion services in certain circumstances, which would likely have a chilling effect, reducing access to care,” the policy added.
“If the President were presented with H.R. 3134 or H.R. 3504, he would veto them,” the policy concluded.
Notice not once is there a constitutional reason for vetoing the bill, not once!
It’s not surprising given the fact that Barack Obama has been a supporter of infanticide, just like Planned Parenthood.
When Obama was a senator in Illinois he supported abortion at all stages, including late term abortion.
In case that wasn’t enough, an audio segment that is about eight minutes long, has then Senator Obama very calmly discussing the murder of a child born while an abortionist is trying to kill it. Though the child is alive and moving, bureaucrats such as Obama want to make sure that a second attendant would come in and verify the child was viable. They don’t want to use the term ‘alive.’
If you haven’t been praying them, now would be a good time to start praying imprecatory prayers not only against Barack Obama, but also all those who support the murder and dismemberment of babies.
This is a second attempt at removing unconstitutional funding for murderers. The senate failed miserably to defund Planned Parenthood back in August.
