President Barack Obama celebrated Planned Parenthood’s centennial anniversary Sunday by tweeting out his hopes for another 100 years for America’s largest abortion business:

Planned Parenthood was founded on October 16, 1916 by eugenicist Margaret Sanger who worked to control the populations of blacks and others she believed to be “unfit.”

Planned Parenthood’s annual reports show a consistent decline in legitimate health care services, such as pap smears and sexually-transmitted disease treatment, reports Live Action News. The “nonprofit” abortion chain’s most recent IRS form 990 for 2014 shows that its president Cecile Richards’ salary and compensation jumped to $957,952, double the salary she made just three years ago. In 2011, Richards’ reported income was $420,153.

Its most recent tax return also shows that Planned Parenthood’s 12 highest paid employees all earn six-figure salaries amounting to almost half a billion dollars.

Planned Parenthood takes in more than $500 million in taxpayer funding annually – as well as some $186 million in private and corporate donations – and now performs over 300,000 abortions per year in the United States.

In 2013, Barack Obama became the first president to ever address Planned Parenthood, promising to stand with the abortion business against efforts to “turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century.”

“Thank you. God bless you,” the president said to Planned Parenthood and its supporters at a gala event celebrating the organization’s 100th anniversary.

Consistent with its narrative that women need government protection in order to survive, Planned Parenthood has continually sought protection from the Obama administration against states that have asserted their rights to redirect Medicaid funding away from Planned Parenthood and toward other federally qualified healthcare centers that provide more comprehensive services, but do not perform abortions.

The Obama administration has threatened states that have chosen to eliminate Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funding, warning that such action could be a violation of federal law, punishable by cutting off of other federal aid.

Planned Parenthood has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, who has vowed to work to repeal the longstanding Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of abortions. Clinton has said that unborn babies have no constitutional rights.
