Figures. Obamacare Awards DC Planned Parenthood With $375,000 Grant

Do you remember when Barack Obama told Americans during his 2009 State of the Union Address that:
“Under our plan no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.”

Yeah, well it was all a lie.
Abortion provider Planned Parenthood will receive a $375,000 grant from Obamacare in DC.
The DC Examiner reported:

Washington, D.C.’s health insurance exchange has awarded a $375,000 grant to abortion provider Planned Parenthood to help enroll participants in Obamacare, the exchange announced on Tuesday.

As part of its effort to boost enrollment in the exchange created by President Obama’s health care law, the D.C. Health Benefit Exchange doled out $6.4 million to 35 DC-based groups. Those groups include local churches as well as health care and community organizations.

One of the largest awards went to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington D.C. A full list of groups is available here.

“We are excited to create these partnerships with trusted organizations that have deep roots in the communities that make up the District of Columbia,” Diane C. Lewis, chair of the exchange’s executive board, said in a statement.
