Obama Disrespects Dead Abortion Victim with Insensitive Comments Supporting Planned Parenthood
Operation Rescue renews call for Obama to withdraw support and defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of abortion tragedy
CHICAGO, July 25, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Yesterday, in the wake of the tragic and avoidable
botched abortion death of Tonya Reaves at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago, Pres. Barack Obama disrespected Tonya with comments
he made supporting Planned Parenthood during a campaign speech in Portland.
Photo: Pres. Barack Obama's insensitive comments supporting Planned Parenthood have disrespected the life and memory of Tonya Reaves, who died from abortion injuries at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago.
"Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that's a bad idea," Obama said. "I've got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices."
Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation responded to Mr. Obama's insensitive comments:
When Tonya Reaves walked into that Planned Parenthood abortion clinic last Friday, she completely lost any control over her 'health care choices' as well as her life. She did not choose to die. Planned Parenthood took that choice from her.
We have to wonder how Mr. Obama would have felt if that had been Malia or Sasha bleeding to death on that abortion table. By supporting Planned Parenthood and advocating continued tax-funding of this troubled organization, Mr. Obama is intentionally condemning other young women - and perhaps even his own daughters - to the same tragically avoidable fate suffered by Tonya Reaves just a few days ago.
Apparently for Mr. Obama, a Black man who is killed by a white man is worthy of justice, but a Black woman killed by a campaign contributor is something that we should give no regard. That is political cronyism at its worst that places women in a second-class citizen category as a matter of public policy. Mr. Obama's comments are completely unacceptable and we demand that he retract his support for Planned Parenthood and seek justice for Tonya Reaves and her family for this completely avoidable death.
Operation Rescue encourages the public to call Obama and demand he withdraw support and Federal funding from Planned Parenthood.
