Obama: I “Wont Give Any Ground” Defending Unlimited Abortion

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 8/3/12 

President Barack Obama made it clear, yet again, that he will not yield when it comes to promote and supporting abortion on demand for any reason throughout pregnancy.

Appearing at a conference of liberal bloggers in New York City, Obama pledged “not to give any ground” when it comes to the issue of abortion.

“Millions of young women have coverage through their parents’ plans. They are beginning to gain access to contraception at no additional cost. I’m not going to give any ground to those who would deny women their own health care choices,” he told the liberal bloggers at the Blog Her event. “Women should have control over decisions that affect your health, your lives, your careers.”

According to a Washington Times report, Obama “then pivoted to a completely political plea, arguing that women who share his beliefs about their control over their health care needs and their lives couldn’t face a bigger choice this election.”

The comments from Obama came on the same day he met with officials from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business, immediately after exiting Air Force One today at a campaign stop in Florida.

The Hill carried more informationon the meeting:

The two women, Jenna Cawley Tosh and Nancy Wolf, were part of a group that greeted Obama on the tarmac as he stepped off Air Force One.  Obama “spent time talking with each” before moving on to work a rope line, according to a White House pool report. Tosh and Wolf are President/CEO and Board Chairwoman of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, respectively.
