What President Obama didn’t say speaks volumes

To the Editor:

President Obama addressed Planned Parenthood on Friday, April 26.

While enthusiastically supporting Planned Parenthood to the point of being glad that Planned Parenthood would be there for his daughters, “should they ever make a mistake and need Planned Parenthood’s services” he overlooked other related situations involving Planned Parenthood.

What the President did NOT say that day speaks volumes.

President Obama neglected to own up to voting NO for a law that would outlaw infanticide, killing babies that were still alive after the abortion. He voted that way three times while a State Senator in Illinois.

He never mentioned the dialogue with a Florida state senator during a legislative hearing involving Planned Parenthood in Florida, when a Planned Parenthood representative could not answer a question regarding what to do with a living fetus/baby/victim gasping for life on the operating room table, following a late term abortion. He never mentioned the Kermit Gosnell trial in Philadelphia either. As the Kermit Gosnell infanticide and murder trial winds down; the jury has it as I write, it defines a moral sickness in America today. Mostly, the main line media has ignored that trial until now. If the media had done their job more thoroughly possibly President Obama would have been shamed into mentioning the case Friday to Planned Parenthood.
