Lead Abortionist Joins Obama Full-time: Campaign

President Obama's campaign has proudly announced a new addition to their team: Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.  With falling numbers in all election polling, Democrats are doubling down in their belief that most American women voters favor killing millions of unborn babies, for any and all reasons.

Democrats have reacted with alarm to recent polls suggesting Romney has sharply narrowed the "gender gap"—Obama's advantage with women, a key pillar of his re-election strategy. They have seized on, notably, the former Massachusetts governor's vow to overturn Roe v. Wade and his pledge to deny federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

"Since Day One, President Obama has stood with women," Richards says in the video, which includes Obama interacting with smiling women. She also underlines that the first bill the president signed into law was a measure to enable women to better battle pay discrimination.

From "For his closing argument to women, Obama calls on Cecile Richards" by Jana Kasperkevic, Houston Chronicle 10/19/12

“My name is Cecile Richards. I am President of Planned Parenthood, but now I have taken a break from my day job in order to volunteer full time to re-elect President Barack Obama,” Richards said in the ad released by Obama’s campaign this morning.

Richards’ pitch is sharp and concise:  Obama has signed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and has worked on issues such as equal pay, equal rights and access to health care for women.  In her Virginia speech today, she credited women, including her mother, with fighting for women rights and stressed that in order to keep moving forward on issues close to women’s hearts, President Obama must be re-elected.

From "Planned Parenthood chief to campaign 'full time' for Obama in final weeks" by Geneva Sands, The Hill 10/19/12

[Mitt Romney] has said that he would eliminate federal funding to Planned Parenthood, as well as other programs, to help reduce the deficit. The Romney campaign released a TV ad earlier this week seeking to refute criticism of his abortion stance and reminding voters that he believes abortion should be an option in "cases of rape, incest or to save a mother’s life.”

The anti-abortion-rights group Live Action responded to the video, accusing Richards of trying to preserve funding for her organization and blasting Planned Parenthood as a threat to the "well-being of women."

"In a new video the Obama campaign released today, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards says she is taking a break from her 'day job' to help re-elect the President because our 'daughters and grand daughters' future depends on it.' At a taxpayer funded salary of almost $400,000 a year, Ms. Richards may be able to afford to take a few weeks off to help, but the President has embraced a partner whose radical abortion-first agenda repeatedly puts the health and well-being of women and young girls at risk," Live Action President Lilia Rose said in a statement.

The Romney campaign responded by referring to a National Review op-ed by Romney on June 18, 2011.

“I am pro-life and believe that abortion should be limited to only instances of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother,” Romney wrote. “I support the reversal of Roe v. Wade, because it is bad law and bad medicine. Roe was a misguided ruling that was a result of a small group of activist federal judges legislating from the bench.”

“President Obama is the most pro-abortion president in history and he is Planned Parenthood's President, but one has to wonder why the President is turning a blind eye to the dangerous, illegal, unethical and fraudulent practices engaged by the organization and its threat to women and young girls,” [said Lila Rose, founder of the pro-life group Live Action].
