Obama Vetoes Planned Parenthood Defunding Bill

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest youth pro-life organization which works with 930 student pro-life groups on campus, said the following regarding President Obama’s veto of the repeal of Obamacare and defunding of Planned Parenthood:

“While it is no surprise that President Obama, the most pro-abortion president in our nation’s history, vetoed a bill that would have redirected hundreds of millions of dollars away from a likely criminal organization and to true women’s health organizations, the fact that Congress figured out a way to redirect those funds away from Planned Parenthood without needing two-thirds of the Senate in the first place is historic. This veto – only one of eight bills that Obama has vetoed and the very first pro-life one – underscores the need for the nation to elect a pro-life president in 2016 who does the will of the people instead of pandering to a corrupt and deceitful organization that betrays women and sells them, and their preborn babies, out for the bottom line.”
