Obama: Never mind the states, voters want …

With President Barack Obama saying yes to Planned Parenthood after another state said no, one pro-lifer asserts that the only way to change the administration’s pro-abortion leaning is to get a new administration.
The governor and legislature of Tennessee agreed to halt funding of Planned Parenthood and send the money instead to organizations that provide medical services to women. But Billy Valentine of the Susan B. Anthony List tells OneNewsNow that the president has responded by contracting directly with Tennessee Planned Parenthood, agreeing to send them more than $1 million over a three-year period.
“What we’ve seen time and time again is President Obama is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the tax dollars flowing to Planned Parenthood, even if it means trampling on the rights of states to represent the values of the citizens that they were elected to represent,” Valentine laments.
So he says the only thing voters can do to show their disapproval is to change administrations in Washington.
“That’s the quick fix. There’s absolutely nothing that the state can do,” the SBA List spokesman offers. “But we need to educate ourselves and educate voters about just how far President Obama is willing to go to keep our tax dollars flowing to America’s abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.”
In response to the president’s grant announcement last week, the Susan B. Anthony List issued a statement that reads: “Clearly, protecting Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded bottom line — and not protecting women and girls — is President Obama’s top priority.”
