On Friday, President Obama became the first sitting President to give an address to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider. It’s doctors kill over 300,000 unborn children every year. The President closed his remarks to this group with a rousing show of support for Planned Parenthood and for a mother’s right to have her unborn child killed. Here are his words:
As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.
President Obama’s remarks are laden with the damning euphemisms that I wrote about earlier this week. For this reason, I think it will be useful to consider again what these words really mean with the euphemisms removed. Here’s the rendering:
As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to doctors who will kill their unborn children, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to have her unborn child killed, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.
Planned Parenthood is complicit in the single greatest human rights crisis of our time, yet President Obama closed his remarks by saying, “God bless you.” This benediction took the Lord’s name in vain by calling down God’s blessing on the very thing that God abominates (Jer. 19:4).
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness (Isa. 5:20).
Can’t even watch the video, that’s how sick it makes me.
I don’t think you needed to change his words at the end. The whole speech is pretty sickening. I’m convinced more and more that this man is evil.
I can’t even begin to express how much this grieves me…
yet, the Lord is able to open the eyes of the blind and that is my prayer.
As a Canadian who has a Prime Minister who has also done nothing to curtail the slaughter of innocent children in the womb , to listen to your President glorify a mass murdering origination like Planned Parenthood , is sickening . We are called to pay respect to those over us but both of these leaders have blood on their hands . Both need to be called to repent of their involvement in this evil because when one has power to do what is right but fails to do so , then they might as well be on trail like the butcher Gosnell in my view.
Thank you, Dr. Burke. Important words once again.
Thanks, Tom. I appreciate it!
Instead of focusing on Obama, how about focusing on the people that elected Obama? Obama made no secret of his support for “reproductive choice” during his campaign. The sad fact is this: Obama is not pushing an agenda the American people don’t want.
You’re right of course.. Obama is not some magical sorcerer that is deluding the masses to ignore the evils of abortion. Its simply part and parcel of the degeneration of our moral fabric which has manifested in different ways. Abortion, homosexuality, contempt for the poor, war mongering, veneration of greed, and selfishness as a virtue amongst the usual garden variety sins.
Education for the American populace is most important before any election because the mass media is ‘controlled’ by the elite to brainwash people so that they will vote not according to their conscience but rather to be political correct. For example, think about the infamous interviews of Todd Aiken and Richard Mourdock before the 2012 election. In this regard, I recently found the video series Whatever Happened to the Human Race? by the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer and Dr. C. Everett Koop very helpful.
Again, would we expect anything less from someone that publicly declared that a pregnancy on his teen/pre-teen daughters would be a burdern/punishment?
Pregnany women are not alone. Many churches have programs as well as the thousand of pregnancy centers that are available for help (that won’t push abortion).
I don’t know the context of the statement but I’m not going to say that a pre-teen or teen having an unplanned pregnancy isn’t a burden or punishment. Of course it could very well be seeing that this is not the desired outcome most parents have for their unmarried and still immature children. My own take on it has nothing to do with abortion, if that even needs to be said.
James, I could agree that it might not be the “desired outcome” at the time for my child. However, that being said, what we all do have natural consequences, both good and bad (to us it seems). But God tells us that everything happens for His glory. At the risk of being cliche’d with “God will only give you what He knows you can handle”, I’ll say it like this. The Bible is either completely true or false. If it’s true, God has a plan for me and you. And His purpose will be ultimately revealed to us and we are to trust Him. God will not protect us from what He will perfect us through.
