Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, head of the taxpayer-subsidized abortion giant is currently facing a firestorm for allegedly selling body parts harvested from aborted babies. It is now revealed she made 39 personal visits to the White House since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, according to White House records.
CNS News notes:
According to online records on the White House website, Richards first visited the White House on Jan. 20, 2009 — the same day Obama first took office. Since then, Richards has met with Obama alone at least three times and First Lady Michelle Obama at least twice. She also met with president and his wife together another four times.
Richards also met four times with David Plouffe, Obama’s senior adviser from 2011 to 2013. Following Plouffe’s resignation in 2013, Richards met with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett five times between mid-2012 and the beginning of 2014.
Since 2009, logs show Richards has also met a laundry list of top White House officials: Richards also attended Obama’s second inaugural reception on Jan. 20, 2013.

A series of recent videos by the conservative pro-life group Center for Medical Progress show Planned Parenthood officials and employees quibbling over the sale of body parts harvested from aborted babies. Federal law clearly forbids the sale of human and fetal tissue for profit. Richards has repeatedly denied assertions that the besieged organization is truly making money off the sale of the tiny human remains.
In 2014 alone, Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, received $528.4 million in taxpayer funding, according to its 2014 annual financial report. That year, the organization performed 327,653 abortions.
