Obama 12-Minute Speech to Planned Parenthood Time for 7.6 Abortions at Planned Parenthood
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama praised the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for saving lives and helping women and families in a 12-minute, 3-second speech on Friday, which was enough time for 7.6 abortions to take place at Planned Parenthood clinics, based upon the abortion data in their latest annual report.
According to that annual report for 2011-2012, Planned Parenthood and its affiliated clinics performed 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011. That averages one abortion every 94 seconds.
President Obama spoke to Planned Parenthood for 720 seconds today. Thus, over the course of the president’s speech, on average 7.69 abortions would have been performed at Planned Parenthood facilities.
In his speech, the president referenced two women that he said faced health problems with fertility and cancer, and claimed that they had found help at Planned Parenthood facilities.
“So every day in every state and at every center Planned Parenthood operates, there are stories like those,” Obama said. “Lives you saved, women you’ve empowered, families that you have strengthened.”
“That’s why no matter how great the challenge, no matter how fierce the opposition, there’s one thing the past few years have shown,” Obama said. “It’s that Planned Parenthood isn’t going anywhere.”
“It’s not going anywhere today, it’s not going anywhere tomorrow,” Obama said.
Planned Parenthood performed 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011, an increase of 4,519 from the 329,445 abortions it did in 2010, according to a fact sheet that Planned Parenthood published last year.
Over two years, Planned Parenthood says, it has aborted 663,409 babies.
The 2011-2012 report states that Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements,” which it states includes “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.”
The report also shows that Planned Parenthood’s total assets top $1 billion dollars, specifically $1,244.7 billion.
“As long as we’ve got a fight to make, make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care and as long we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health care 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,” Obama said.
“Thank you Planned Parenthood and God Bless you,” Obama said.
