“It may be worse than you think. We have known for a long time that many liberal, secularists will do just about anything to get elected. Including running and hiding from their voting records. However, as voters have become more sophisticated and started actually looking at voting records, some lawmakers have taken creativity to a new level.
A few weeks ago Hillary accused Obama of not being as “pro-abortion” as she is. To prove it, she pointed to his voting record on the subject while he served in the Illinois State Legislature. She said he voted “present” instead of voting “no” on anti-abortion issues.
As his defense surfaced, you won’t believe who was orchestrating and planning his vote.
That’s right. Planned Parenthood.
In defending his pro-abortion position, the Obama people said, “Oh, no. He is actually more pro-abortion than Hillary, because he was voting “present” on those bills to further the cause.” Planned parenthood confirmed that they had actually devised the plan to have him and other Democrats vote “present” because there was a threat to some of their offices.
Well, Pam Sutherland, CEO of Illinois Planned Parenthood, explained it to the press. She said, “We had a very astute and devious Republican leader that we knew was using abortion votes as wedge issues, putting those votes into mailers to help defeat pro-choice Democrats. It was our strategy, Planned Parenthood, to decide that a ‘present’ vote was the same as a ‘no’ vote.”
Astute? Probably. Devious? Who is devious? The astute republican leader who publicizes a lawmaker’s voting record or the lawmaker who decides that “present” means “no”?
This is another case of lawmakers getting elected by saying one thing during elections, then doing something very different once in office. Voter beware.
So, who is more pro-abortion, Obama or Clinton? We’ll let the abortion people fight that out.
This does cause one to wonder if either of these folks actually got to the White House, what kind of “code” voting Planned Parenthood would devise for them.
Keep in mind that Planned Parenthood just announced a campaign to raise $10 million to defeat pro-life candidates at the state level.
We need real change.”
