Obama 7/17/07: “Reproductive care is essential…basic care…It is at the center and the heart of the (health care) plan that I’ve proposed.”

In his now infamous speech to Planned Parenthood in 2007, then candidate Obama, explains what he thinks about abortion being part of health care reform. Remember:

“‘Reproductive health’ includes access to abortion.”
~Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Obama’s wording here is significant because, while the word “abortion” may not appear in either of the health care bills, the term “essential benefit” is and will likely be interpreted by the courts to mandate abortion coverage as illustrated by past administrative and legal interpretation. MRL President Pam Fichter explains this in her response to a statement by Sen. Claire McCaskill last week.

Thanks to National Right to Life for providing this video. Watch the entire (disturbing) speech.
