Washington, DC - Abortion was front and center at the second of three Presidential debates. On the topic of the economy and women in the workplace, President Obama went out of his way to express his support for taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood four times last night.

“There are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms,” the President said in the debate.

“President Obama was wrong about Planned Parenthood. Not one Planned Parenthood facility offers mammograms. Not one,” said Mat Staver, Chairman of Liberty Counsel Action. “Just four months ago, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the Obama Administration admitted that Planned Parenthood facilities do not offer mammograms. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. That President Obama wants to continue funding Planned Parenthood when America faces a 16 trillion dollar debt is astounding.”

Not only is the President advocating federal funding of Planned Parenthood, he is fighting against state initiatives to cut state funding of abortion. When legislators in New Jersey, New Hampshire, Tennessee, and North Carolina voted to defund Planned Parenthood, President Obama sent more federal funds to the abortion provider. The Obama Administration sued Arizona, Indiana, and Texas after legislators in those states voted to cut Planned Parenthood funding from their budgets. He even threatened to withhold Medicaid money when states cut Planned Parenthood funding.

“Under President Obama, we have seen the biggest taxpayer funding of abortion in our history,” said Staver. “Taxpayers should never be forced to violate their conscience and fund any abortion organization,” Staver continued. “The ObamaCare HHS mandate will force religious employers to fund abortion-inducing drugs, despite their religious objections. And the Obama Administration is using taxpayer dollars to force other countries to liberalize their abortion laws,”

Staver said. “Planned Parenthood is not a women’s health organization. Planned Parenthood is responsible for the slaughter of 330,000 preborn babies each year--half of those, preborn women--and hurting millions of would-be mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, sisters, and brothers in the process.” Staver concluded: “This government-subsidized holocaust must stop!”

Liberty Counsel Action is a 501(c)(4), nonprofit, grassroots lobbying organization advancing religious and civil liberties, the sanctity of human life, the family, limited and responsible government, national security, and support for Israel.
