by Aaron Wilson -- June 7, 2013

Retired six-time Pro Bowl center and former Viking Matt Birk skipped the Baltimore Ravens' visit to the White House on Wednesday for political reasons.

Specifically, the St. Paul native took issue with President Barack Obama's support of Planned Parenthood.

Birk is a staunch Catholic father of six children who's against abortion and has taken a strong pro-life stance. Birk has also spoken out in the past in favor of traditional marriage prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal last year in Maryland.

"I wasn't there," Birk said in an interview on KFAN-FM. "I would say that I have great respect for the office of the presidency, but about five or six weeks ago, our President made a comment in a speech and he said,'God bless Planned Parenthood.'

"Planned Parenthood performs about 330,000 abortions a year. I am Catholic, I am active in the pro-life movement and I just felt like I couldn't deal with that. I couldn't endorse that in any way. I'm very confused by (Obama's) statement. For God to bless a place where they're ending 330,000 lives a year? I just chose not to attend."

At the close of his speech at a Planned Parenthood national conference in April, Obama said: "Thank you Planned Parenthood. God bless you, God bless America."

Too many hits to the helmet.

Planned Parenthood never met an abortion it wouldn't enthusiastically endorse or try to perform. Big Abortion also fights every regulation (parental notification for a minor's abortion, to cite but one of many examples) constraining open season on abortion.

Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion Obama both support killing an infant who manages to survive a botched abortion.

http://www.nrlc.org/ObamaBAIPA/2003AmendedILB... -- On March 12-13, 2003, the Illinois state senate committee chaired by Senator Barack Obama amended the proposed state Born-Alive Infants Protection bill (SB 1082) to exactly track the language of the already-enacted -- without a single dissenting vote in either the U. S. House or Senate -- federal BAIPA, by adopting Senate Amendment No. 1, 10-0. The committee then voted to kill the amended bill, 6-4, with Obama and the other Democrats on the committee voting against it.

The bill that Obama and his colleges voted to kill, as amended, was virtually identical to the federal law. The entirely non-substantive points at which the state bill language still differed from the federal law are shown in brackets below (except we have ignored differences in capitalizing).

Why is it OK to dispose of fertilized embryos if you're a Romney, again ?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who recently had twin grandsons conceived through in vitro fertilization, has said it is okay for couples to "destroy' human embryos conceived through in vitro fertilization if they do not want to implant those human beings in a womb.

Congrats to Mr. Birk for being a man who tand by his convcions.

That is a qualty that is lacking in many people any more. This is espcially problematic for those on the Left since they have no moral backbone at all.
