Bishops’ president criticizes Obama over Planned Parenthood

 | 

New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the president of the U.S. bishops’ conference, has criticized President Barack Obama’s attendance at a gala for Planned Parenthood in April, saying the organization’s focus on women’s health issues is a cover phrase for abortion services.

Writing on his archdiocesan blog Tuesday, Dolan stated that while the president "never mentioned the word ‘abortion’” during his remarks at the gala he “praised Planned Parenthood for their work for ‘women’s health’.”
