Obama Backs Out of Keynote Address at Planned Parenthood Gala

Obama Backs Out of Keynote Address at Planned Parenthood Gala

Apparently even $12 million only buys so much loyalty from Barack Obama; the president canceled plans to deliver the keynote address at Planned Parenthood’s annual fundraising dinner Thursday night after the furor over abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s atrocities sparked a national outcry. 

According to White House spokesman Jay Carney, Obama canceled his appearance because he wanted to stay longer at a memorial service victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.

The blowback from the Gosnell revelations has been intense; as Lila Rose of the anti-abortion group Live Action said, “It is incumbent upon the president to reconsider his support for the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood, which last year profited from abortion $87 million committing over 300,000 abortions.”

Obama will still address Planned Parenthood on Friday morning.
