RICHMOND, VA, November 6, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards “tweeted” this morning that she is spending her day knocking on doors in Richmond urging supporters to get out and vote for President Obama.

Richards recently took a sabbatical from running the nation’s largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood, to stump full-time for President Obama.
For its part, Planned Parenthood, which performs some 300,000 abortions per year, has taken out millions of dollars worth of television, radio and print ads in support of Obama. One TV ad campaign themed “Yes We Plan” – an allusion to Obama’s 2008 “Yes We Can” campaign mantra – features a Barack Obama speech and stars Mary J. Blige, Julianne Moore and hip-hop artist Q-Tip.
Planned Parenthood has reportedly spent over $10 million on their efforts to reelect President Obama.
The non-profit organization receives nearly $500 million in government funding every year, for which the president reiterated his support just yesterday.
That is a 5000% return on investment – this year alone – for Planned Parenthood. And with Mitt Romney promising to work to defund the abortion giant if he is elected, the stakes have never been higher for Planned Parenthood.
The Planned Parenthood Action website states, “President Obama has been a champion for women’s health and a steadfast ally for Planned Parenthood.”
