Bill Clinton wins Obama’s second term!

Let’s hope Mr. Obama is actually capable of change, since otherwise, people might start calling Bill Clinton a liar.

Fact Check: Clinton Misleads on Planned Parenthood Funding

Today, Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser fact-checked former President Bill Clinton’s reaction to Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer funding, saying:

“President Clinton believes that taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood means fewer abortions. If that were true, that would mean that the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood in 2000, the last year of Clinton’s presidency, would be much higher than current levels since taxpayer funding has increased every year since. From 2000 to 2009, Planned Parenthood saw an 80 percent increase in taxpayer funding, receiving $202 million in 2000 and $363 million in 2009.

“The truth is, more taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood equals more abortions. In 2000, Planned Parenthood performed 197,070 abortions while making 2,486 adoption referrals. In 2009, they performed 332,278 abortions and made just 977 adoption referrals. That means an 80 percent increase in taxpayer funding resulted in a 69 percent increase in the number of abortions and a 61 percent decrease in the number of adoption referrals.

“Clinton also claims that ending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood will end the ability of women to receive family planning services, cancer screenings, and preventative healthcare. But according to a report by the Chiaroscuro Foundation, poor women and women generally have other options. In addition to the tens of thousands of U.S. doctors and hospitals providing this care, there are 1,048 federally qualified health centers in the U.S. providing care as well. And Planned Parenthood, with nearly a billion dollars in net assets, would still be free to operate on its own dime.

“President Clinton talks a lot about making abortion rare. If he’s serious about doing so, he should back efforts to defund America’s leading abortion provider of taxpayer funding. The numbers are indisputable.”

Mother Teresa v. Hillary Clinton on abortion at 1994’s National Prayer Breakfast

Hillary Clinton’s encounter with Mother Teresa began, it just so happens, at the National Prayer Breakfast, way back in 1994. That year, the keynoter was a special guest: Mother Teresa. Nearly 3,000 packed a huge room. Near the dais were the president and first lady—the Clintons.

Unlike in typical years, where the keynoter sits among the assembled waiting for others to finish speaking, Mother Teresa appeared from behind a curtain only when called to the platform, and then slowly hunched toward the microphone. She began talking about Jesus and John the Baptist in their wombs, about their mothers, and how the “unborn child” in the womb of Elizabeth—John—leapt with joy, heralding the arrival of Christ as Mary neared Elizabeth, a moment known as “The Visitation.”

Mother Teresa next spoke of love, of selfishness, of a lack of love for the unborn—and a lack of want of the unborn because of selfishness. Then, the gentle sister made this elite group uncomfortable: “But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because Jesus said, ‘If you receive a little child, you receive me.’ So every abortion is the denial of receiving Jesus.”

After an awkward silence, the entire ballroom erupted in a standing ovation that seemed to last minutes. It felt even longer to the embarrassed Clintons (and Al and Tipper Gore), who remained seated and did not clap.

Undeterred by the Clintons’ coldness, the tiny, aged lady was only warming up. Abortion was, said Mother, “really a war against the child, and I hate the killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that the mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? … This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

Hillary Clinton was shaken. But it wasn’t over.
