On Friday, President Obama became the first sitting President to give an address to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider. It's doctors kill over 300,000 unborn children every year. The President closed his remarks to this group with a rousing show of support for Planned Parenthood and for a mother's right to have her unborn child killed. Here are his words:
As long as we've got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we've got to fight to protect a woman's right to make her own choices about her own health, 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. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.
President Obama's remarks are laden with the damning euphemisms that I wrote about earlier this week. For this reason, I think it will be useful to consider again what these words really mean with the euphemisms removed. Here's the rendering:
As long as we've got to fight to make sure women have access to doctors who will kill their unborn children, and as long as we've got to fight to protect a woman's right to have her unborn child killed, 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. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.
Planned Parenthood is complicit in the single greatest human rights crisis of our time, yet President Obama closed his remarks by saying, "God bless you." This benediction took the Lord’s name in vain by calling down God's blessing on the very thing that God abominates (Jer. 19:4).
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness (Isa. 5:20).
