Planned Parenthood Helps Teen Birthrate Decline. What???

This video is a look back at what then Candidate Obama said at a Planned Parenthood gathering. The title of this article says it all. At about 14:40 into this speech, Planned Parenthood was accredited by this President as being one organization that has helped the teen birthrate decline...I guess this is in part by providing a significant portion of the over 1450 abortions PER DAY within the black community and nearly 50 Million abortions since Roe v.Wade in 1973.

I had to restate another favorite and unbelievable part of this speech.
"So you know where I stand. But this is more than just about standing our ground. It must be about more than just protecting the gains of the past. We're at a crossroads right now in America., and we have to move this country forward, this election is not just about playing defense, it's also about playing offense, it's not just about defending what is, it's about creating what might be in this country. That's what we've gotta work together on. There will always be people, many of good will, who do not share my view on the issue of choice. On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned parenthood will not yield , but that doesn't mean that we can't find common ground. Because we know that what's at stake is more than whether or not a woman can choose an abortion, Choice is about how we lead our lives. It's about our families, our communities, it's about our daughters and whether they will have the same opportunities as our sons. There are those who want us to believe otherwise. They want us to believe that there's nothing that unites us as Americans, there's only what divides us. They'll seek out the narrowest and most divisive ground. That is the strategy to always argue small instead of looking at the big picture. They will stand in the way of any attempt to find common ground, at a time when the real war is being fought abroad, they would have us fight culture wars here at home"...~ Candidate Barack Obama 7/17/07 Planned Parenthood Action Forum
OK, if no one will yield, then what type of common ground can there be or is there? In other words, YOU will have to change from your "narrow" arguments IF you want things to be different because "we" won't change from ours.

In the speech, Candidate Obama also referenced the estimated 10,000 American teenagers get an STD everyday. 55 of which contract HIV and 2400 becoming pregnant.  He was hot that America supposedly spends 1.5 billion in schools to teach abstinence but fail to teach basic science and basic contraception. He says that it's a "false argument" to teach that the only way to prevent disease and unwanted pregnancy is abstinence education, and just as equally false to teach that the only way to prevent this is through contraception...he says it's not either's both and.

This was the past. In my next post we'll discover what has recently happened and what these playa's have to say about it...and I do mean playa's..Pimpin' America for all that it's worth...unfortunately to the Chinese, it's not worth too much right about now. 


Update 10/11/2012


  1. Just because neither side will budge doesn't mean common ground is non-existent. For instance, abstinence education can be useful (albeit not exclusively), education about the dangers & realities of teen pregnancy, the specifics of abortion legality are up for grabs (re. parental consent, etc).

    These things are all controversial, but neither side has taken absolutist positions on them. Of course common ground can be found if both sides are willing to work towards it.

  2. Whatevernman,

    As you lay it out is reasonable, but that's not how the conversation is geared. When he says that neither he nor planned parenthood will yield, that leaves no room for adjustment of approach as the mission of planned parenthood is clearly laid out and the President's own words clearly affirm what his position is. This is why in his current budget, money for what is called "ineffective abstinence programs" are eliminated.

    Now, the trick here is that most in this camp believe that ANY abstinence program is ineffective. There could be nothing further from the truth. In fact, in my opinion, that the ultimate defeatist attitude.

  3. Abortion is racist - watch Maafa21 for more documentation than you'd ever care to see.

  4. I dont remember abstinance being taught too much when I went to high school, a while back.

    Safe sex has been taught for a long long time in High schools as far as I know. I remember being taught about STD's and contraceptives.

    We live in society that is filled with "wrap it up" concepts while the veiw of abstinance is rarely pushed in an effort such as the "wrap it up" efforts.

    So you see our president has missed the mark, big time. He needs to look at what and who is influencing our youth. You have a rare individual talking about abstaining and then you have a the people who the youth idolize talking about fornication non stop and making it seem as if its the thing to do, as if the flesh needs anymore help in sinning!?

    I actually read an article on ex times where President Obama actually endorsed Jay Z, whether he agrees with some of his lyrics is irrelevant, you cannot say stuff like this as the president as he is at the head of the list corrupting the minds of the youth as he was corrupted also.

    Here in lies the problem, sin and bad influences.

    Inspite of all the attempts to talk about safe sex it doesnt help and that because man at best is really foolish due to influence of sin. What this country needs is to define right and wrong by way of the scriptures but how can we when we have a President that backs an organization that was founded by Margaret Sanger for the purpose of killing black people.

    I am sick now!!

  5. As I placed in the other is interesting that the health care reform law contains significant funding for abstinence only sex education training...I think maybe our President would rather have his daughters taught how to refrain from sexual activity rather than how to prepare for it!

    This was quite a surprise and those who thought they understood where he was going with this are still in a daze...he is double minded however, but that's a good thing in this case.

  6. Now, Roe v Wade was decided on the 14th Amendment. Whether the 14th Amendment applied to the unborn. President Obama here said that he would "budge" on the issue but we could still find "common ground". What did and does that mean? Hillary evidently feels the same and we will have even more of an expansion and acceptance of abortion from a executive standpoint if she is elected.

    How can "common ground" be found on an issue in which you firmly believe that the unborn do not have rights, except for the arbitrary rights you wish to extend in the event of certain crimes where the fetus or baby in the womb is killed?

    The Obama and democrat idea of "compromise" is when you stop believing and doing what you do. In addition, how do you "compromise" over the issue of life and death anyway? His and Hillary's are really a ridiculous way of viewing life and the sanctity of it.
