Obama-Reid Willing to Sacrifice Troops for Funding of Planned Parenthood

CHICAGO – Military families will suffer because of the rigid pro-abortion ideology of President Obama and Senate Democrats, says Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote.org.

A senior White House official confirmed today that military service men and woman would be required to work but would not receive paychecks if the government shuts down Saturday.

“Our military men and women are fighting three wars overseas but now risk delaying their paychecks because President Obama and Senate Democrats would rather shut down the federal government than defund Planned Parenthood. Their priorities are simply shameful,” said Burch.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently said “not only no, but hell no” to any budget passing the Senate that would cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Forty-one Democrats also promised to filibuster any budget bill that ended funding for Planned Parenthood.

A series of damaging undercover videos recently exposed Planned Parenthood staff aiding and abetting alleged sex traffickers in exploiting underage girls. The abortion giant is under criminal investigation in Kansas, and has been accused of mishandling over $1 billion in taxpayer-funded government grants. But this hasn’t stopped Senate Democrats from holding out to preserve funding for this scandal-plagued organization.

“Senate Democrats are willing to put the squeeze on military families in order to protect funding for Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. The political games and rigid pro-abortion obstructionism must stop. Catholic voters have had enough,” said Burch.

    You all need to know the facts before you seriously make absurd assertions! Obama is not choosing abortion over our troops. Republicans have no right to put a bill that includes both these issues. They have nothing to do with one another. This is why Obama is not for this bill. Republicans on the other hand put it in there because as usual want to deceive the American people.

    • Simply Said

      Obama IS choosing arbortions over our troops, otherwise why doesn’t he sign the bill? Reid has already said an agreement was met, except for support of PP. Everyone knows Reid is Obama’s “YES” man. Obama doesn’t sign it because he is NOTHING more than PRO-ABORTION!!! He has proved this with EVERY vote he has ever made and ALL of his support for PP AND making tax dollars available for abortions. YOU NEED TO LEARN THE FACTS before making blind and ABSURD assertions. But then that is Obama’s mantra, lie, blame it on the Republicans, get them thinking falsely if we can, and call them stupid.

    Enlightenment Mantra: “We know better than you do, and your resistance is a sign that we are doing things right.” Some things never change.

    What!!! President Obama would rather KILL a newly formed baby in the womb of his or her mother than pay our troops for their hard work and possible life threatening orders FROM OUR PRESIDENT???????????????? It is a strange and scarry world we live in.

    There isn’t any doubt….Obama, Reid and the Democrats would rather shut down the government than give up their support for murdering thousands of innocent babies, destroying women, covering up sex trafficking, and brainwashing our school children with immoral “sex-education”. I knew Obama was a radical pro-abortion supporter before he was elected. My question is why did so many “Catholics” vote for him and where’s the Bishops support for defunding PP now? The silence is deafening!
