The Soul of Obama Pledged to Planned Parenthood

There is a an article at Catholic News Agency which includes portions of a speech Barack Obama made to Planned Parenthood last summer where he pledges his soul to the anti-life movement and states, "I will not yield to the pro-life movement." So much for the naive argument that we can vote Democrat and still attempt to persuade the politicians to support life. The hardcore anti-life crowd among our politicians will not be deterred. They are as convinced in the righteousness of abortion as we are convinced of its evil. Here is an excerpt from that speech where he condemns the Supreme Court for suggesting that they know better than a woman's doctor what is best for her health. Of course the doctors of the young woman that committed suicide in London recently didn't really know what was best, neither her GP nor the one who performed the abortion despite the obvious evidence of emotional stress that she was under or her hesitation in having the abortion.

“For the first time in Gonzales versus Carhart,” Obama said, “the Supreme Court held—upheld a federal ban on abortions with criminal penalties for doctors. For the first time, the Court’s endorsed an abortion restriction without an
exception for women’s health. The decision presumed that the health of women is
best protected by the Court—not by doctors and not by the woman herself. That
presumption is wrong.”

No, what is wrong is the presumption that those committed to abortion will allow any opinion contrary to its own
