If you thought the gruesome details spilling out from the ongoing Kermit Gosnell trial would temper Barack Obama's extreme support for abortion, think again.
On Thursday, President Obama and first lady Michelle will be the honored guests of the nation's largest abortion provider at its annual gala. Ahead of the event, Planned Parenthood is celebrating the president and his support for their "business," calling him the most pro-abortion president in history:
"President Obama has done more than any president in history for women's health and rights," Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in a statement announcing that Obama will deliver the keynote address at the organization's "Time For Care" dinner in Washington. "We are honored to have President Obama join us...at this pivotal moment for women's health."
Richards also served as a surrogate for Obama's reelection campaign, touting the president's record on women's issues during the heat of the race.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer and HBO's "Girls" creator Lena Dunham will be honored the event.
