It's About Principles, Mr. President
President Obama pledged to continue to fund Planned Parenthood in last night's debate. Was anyone else sickened by his emotive tone of voice as if PP was a benevolent charity that actually cares for women? They receive $487 million in government grants and reimbursements. That impacts the deficit, certainly. But there is a bigger picture. For me, a politician cannot lead if he isn't to willing stand upon virtues and moral principles. It is a blatant falsehood that PP offers mammograms and screenings for cervical cancer or STDs. They sell abortions and are willing to cover up incest and rape to boot. And that is not OK with my tax dollars. Clearly, ObamaCare doesn't respect my Catholic conscience nor any other Christian's.
