(CNSNews.com) - At a White House reception Wednesday honoring Women’s History Month, President Barack Obama paid tribute to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“Welcome to the White House,” Obama said, before thanking Sana Amanat, an editor of Marvel comic books who had introduced him.
“Thank you, Sana, for your incredible work,” he said. “Ms. Marvel may be your comic book creation, but I think for a lot of young boys and girls, Sana is a real-life superhero.
"And there are a lot of them in this room, so I want to acknowledge a couple of them," Obama said. "First of all, we’ve got Cecile Richards in the house, making sure that women’s health care is on the front burner. We’ve got America’s first female NFL Coach, Dr. Jennifer Welter. We have some outstanding members of Congress, including Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.”
