A recent CNS News report offers a clear indication that Obama’s current defense of the nation’s most prolific abortion facilitator is the product of a close relationship with the organization’s president.
Cecile Richards has reportedly visited the White House dozens of times during the Obama administration – dating back to his very first day in office.
Her 39 presidential visits began with four during Obama’s first year in office and a relatively modest two during 2010. In 2011, however, Richards began to appear on the White House guest registry more often.
She logged her arrival seven times that year, six in 2012, and 13 in 2013. Last year, she visited the White House four times and has been twice so far this year.
n addition to meeting with Obama, Richards has met with at least 10 other White House officials – not including several personal visits with the first lady.
Many CNS News readers discussing the news in the site’s comments section expressed indignation.
“And folks think funding PBS is an abuse of taxpayer money,” one commenter wrote. “It pales in comparison to what PP does.”
Another went so far as to suggest Obama “needed guidance from Cecile on death panels.”
