Obama, when he was a community organizer, filed briefs to defend Planned Parenthood. President Barack Obama's support for Planned Parenthood was noted in the presidential debates, as contrasted with Republican challenger Mitt Romney's position of defunding the pro-choice group. In one debate, Obama mentioned Planned Parenthood four times, with some believing it was an effort to increase support among women voters. On Tuesday, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the implementation of Indiana's law defunding Planned Parenthood. Last week, a judge in Arizona blocked enforcement of the state's defunding law until the case is decided in court. In both cases, the Obama Administration filed amicus briefs on behalf of Planned Parenthood. Also, as reported by sources like Baptist Press and The Wall Street Journal, Planned Parenthood's political action arms have poured an estimated $12 million into Obama's re-election campaign. About half of those funds went to TV ads in swing states like Virginia and Florida. It is believed to be the largest amount of money Planned Parenthood has ever spent on a presidential campaign. Last week, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, announced that she would be campaigning "full time" for Obama's re-election. I would say that Obama and the Democrat platform is to resist all limits on abortion, and to work for full funding for abortion either by mandatory coverage by insurance under Obamacare, or by full federal funding.
He's definitely for abortion and for public aid to pay for it, as well. His actual comments were that he doesn't like it or believe in it personally, but says it should be available for those who do need it and want it.
For it under many stipulations ... Ryan/Romney are against it in ALL cases even to the detriment of the mother. Also, in cases of pregnancy via rape/ incest, even when the victim could take a pill that would prevent the chance of the egg meeting the sperm by taking it immediately after the rape-- the Ryan/Romney plan opposes it. They will force a victim to carry a rapists baby. Next, they will give parental rights to the father/ rapists. Romney will at times say that is not true only to be recorded the following day that it is true.
Obama is pro choice and supports planned parenthood which uses NO federal money for abortions. It is against federal law to use federal money for abortions. Contrast with GOP who variously believe only in case of harm to woman or in case of rape or never under any circumstances. Some GOP even believe women should have to carry a stillborn child
