Cecile Richards, the head of Planned Parenthood, is perpetuating the â€œwar on womenâ€ meme of the left as her organization strives to hold onto American taxpayer dollars. Sensing that many American women are using their actual brains to vote, and not theirÂ â€œlady parts,â€Richardsâ€™ decision to hit the Obama campaign trailÂ full-timeÂ tells us that the abortion industry giant is desperate.
A recent USA Today/GallupÂ pollÂ has found Mitt Romney, who is pro-life and has promised to defund Planned Parenthood, is now in a dead heat with Barack Obama regarding the womenâ€™s vote.
Thus far, the organizationâ€™s political division hasÂ spentÂ $5.7 million on the U.S. election. In 2009, Planned Parenthoodâ€™s total â€œhealth centerâ€Â incomeÂ was about $405 million, about $155 million of which was from abortions, making the organizationâ€™s income from abortion that year 38.4% of its total revenue.
Richards, the president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, says she is taking a â€œbreak from her day job,â€ for which sheÂ receives a salary of almost $400,000 a year,Â to volunteer for the presidentâ€™s campaign.
In a newly releasedÂ video, Richards says,Â “Since day one, President Obama has stood with women. The very first bill he signed was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, allowing us to make sure that women get equal pay to men. And under the Affordable Care Act he’s expanded healthcare coverage to millions of American women.â€
Continuing the â€œwar on womenâ€ canard, Richards states in the video that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are â€œthreatening not just to take us back four years, but more than 40 years.â€
Richards, along with President Obama, is apparently unconcerned with the millions of American senior women who will be suffering under the Affordable Care Act, once the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), the unelected panel of government bureaucrats empowered by ObamaCare, begins rationing their care. Or, how about the same senior American women whose Medicare providers will be dropping them as patients because they can no longer afford the cuts to reimbursement rates that are a result of the $716 billion President Obama stole from Medicare to pay for ObamaCare?
