Decision to Fund Planned Parenthood Shows Where President’s Priorities Lie

Washington, D.C. — President Obama has vetoed a bill to reduce taxpayer support of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

“President Barack Obama’s decision to continue using taxpayer money to fund the abortion industry through a stroke of his pen speaks directly to his administration’s priorities on life and the unborn. Language in the bill would have allowed for continued funding for Planned Parenthood if the organization stopped providing abortion. By vetoing this bill, the President’s choice for abortion is loud and clear, perhaps more than ever before.” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “We applauded the United States Congress for passing this bill to defund Planned Parenthood, thereby placing it on the President’s desk. We now ardently encourage Congress to vote on an override to the President’s veto.”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for commentary. For more information, please contact Ryan Hughes at [email protected] or (703) 739-5920.
