With his re-election campaign in high gear, President Obama is focusing on his outreach to women. And, make no mistake about it, the president's pro-abortion track record regarding the funding of programs in this country and abroad has not gone unnoticed.
In fact, President Obama just received a very strong endorsement from NARAL, one of the nation's most active and prominent pro-abortion groups.
"At a time when politicians are attacking choice on the campaign trail, in Congress, and in state legislatures, President Obama continues to distinguish himself as a leader who stands with women and their families . . . We will make sure that voters understand the importance of re-electing President Obama. We are ready to go to battle and work every day to keep a pro-choice leader in the White House."
And in a plea to get voters to watch the NARAL video production endorsing Obama, Keenan put it more bluntly: "We must keep the White House pro-choice this November. The time is now to stand in the face of these extremists and fight for the rights of women everywhere."
The pro-abortion crowd is very aggressive. NARAL is doing all it can to get President Obama re-elected. And, Planned Parenthood is pulling out all stops to challenge a growing number of states that have decided that it's time to put a halt to sending taxpayer funds to the nation's largest abortion provider.
As we've reported, we're preparing an amicus brief to be filed with a federal appeals court within days - standing up for a Texas law that prevents Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas from receiving taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood has gone to court and we're now challenging a decision by a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, which reversed an emergency stay, and now clears the way for taxpayer funds to go to Planned Parenthood.
We know this battle is unfolding across the nation. One state at a time. We've already filed an amicus brief in a critical case in Indiana, backing that state's efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
We will continue to challenge this pro-abortion effort in court and in the public arena. It is an important time to stand for life. That's why thousands already have signed on to our petition urging officials in each and every state to stand-up against Planned Parenthood and to stop sending taxpayer dollars to the nation's largest abortion provider.
If you haven't done so, please add your name now.

One of the biggest myths in popular culture is that big businesses are conservative. To the contrary, many huge corporations and the biggest law firms have now become huge influencers for progressivism and pressure engines for the political Left, as they have demonstrated in a variety of contexts .
Yesterday, a federal court prohibited the State of Indiana from enforcing its “ Sex Selective and Disability Abortion Ban ” while the case continues through litigation in that court. As its title suggests, the law prohibits a person from performing an abortion if the person knows that woman is...
The Supreme Court's 5-3 decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt , striking down two Texas abortion regulations, was a great disappointment . No question. Assuming the role of Supreme Medical Review Board, the Court took a magnifying glass to scrutinize the Texas regulations for any flaws or...
