Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, head of the taxpayer-subsidized abortion giant currently facing a firestorm for allegedly selling body parts harvested from aborted babies, has made personal visits to the White House 39 times since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, White House records show.
According to online records on the White House website, Richards first visited the White House on Jan. 20, 2009 — the same day Obama first took office. Since then, Richards has met with Obama alone at least three times and First Lady Michelle Obama at least twice. She also met with president and his wife together another four times.
[…]In 2014 alone, Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, received $528.4 million in taxpayer funding, according to its 2014 annual financial report. That year, the organization performed 327,653 abortions.
And in return, Planned Parenthood gives a boatload of money to Democrats, to help them get elected.

In the 2014 election cycle, Planned Parenthood gave 100% of their contributions to Democrats, and they are strongly backing Hillary Clinton in 2016.
That record of donations might explain why the White House is 100% behind Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting operation.
Investors Business Daily covered the White House response to the Planned Parenthood sting videos.
The White House has denounced an anti-abortion group’s videos of Planned Parenthood’s activities as “fraudulent” and circled its wagons to defend the indefensible. What kind of White House is this?
For an institution that might argue that it doesn’t have a dog in this fight, the White House sure has stepped into the Planned Parenthood baby-parts selling scandal on the side of the flesh-peddlers.
Sounding a little surreal, White House press secretary Josh Earnest firmly stood up for Planned Parenthood on behalf of the Obama administration following the release of four undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing the family-planning agency’s leaders’ callous disregard for human life and its grotesque efforts to reap commercial benefit for itself.
At a White House press briefing Friday, Earnest called the videos “fraudulent,” falsely claimed that they were “heavily edited” when in fact they were released in full, and hemmed and hawed to reporter’s questions about whether President Obama had seen the videos, saying only: “I suspect someone has.”
“And where are you getting your information of the fact that it’s fraudulent, or the fact that they’re distorted and edited unfairly?” a reporter asked at Friday’s White House press briefing.
“Based on the public comments of Planned Parenthood, who has indicated that the views that are represented in the video are entirely inconsistent with that organization’s policies and with the high ethical standard that they live up to,” Earnest said, demurring again when the reporter asked if he was buying their talking points hook, line and sinker.
Yes, don’t believe your own eyes, voters. Josh Earnest is telling you that Planned Parenthood is a saintly organization, that lives up to the highest ethical standards. Keep voting Democrat, pro-life Democrats, everything is under control. You can keep your doctor, you can keep your health plan, and there is no organ harvesting for profit by Democrat special interest groups.
Obama has vowed to veto any bill that defunds Planned Parenthood. The organ harvesting must go on, and pro-life people must subsidize it, so that we are all equally guilty. It’s important that we all take part in this, so that those who are doing it can tell themselves that this is supported and condoned by taxpayers.
You might have heard that even Hillary Clinton is now saying that she found the videos “disturbing”. That’s true, but what she found “disturbing” was that someone had made the videos, not what was going on in the videos. It’s the fact that voters are seeing these videos that is disturbing to Hillary, not the organ harvesting for profit and the subsequent donations to the Democrat party.
She has no moral qualms at all about what Planned Parenthood is doing in the videos. Probably why she got the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood. She is behind them 100%. And they are behind her 100%, having given her tens of thousands of dollars in donations.
