President Obama Personally Recruited Carmona & Then He Became Pro-Abortion

PHOENIX – While he was Surgeon General, Richard Carmona personally opposed abortion, but after being recruited by President Barack Obama, Carmona suddenly became pro-choice and today Planned Parenthood a far-left liberal organization endorsed him.

In fact, Carmona who has never said anything in support of abortion until this past January, cited abortion as one of the main reasons he was running for the U.S. Senate.

As Fox Tucson reports:

“I looked at some of the issues I have a passion for, the issue of immigration, the issue of women’s rights, things like that these things resonated with me more closely with the Democratic party.” (“Carmona Making Rounds After Announcing Senate Candidacy,” FOX Tucson, 1/18/12)

“One phone call from Barack Obama, and Richard Carmona is suddenly a pro-abortion Democrat with the backing of Planned Parenthood,” said Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert. “Today’s endorsement is yet another reminder that Carmona will be a reliable vote for the far-left’s agenda in Washington.”

Cincinnati Enquirer In 2002: “Dr. Carmona Personally Opposes Abortion.” “Both men were widely praised, but could face resistance in the Senate: Dr. Carmona personally opposes abortion; Dr. Zerhouni advocates stem cell research. The Senate should resist narrow-focus litmus tests and quickly evaluate both men on their qualifications.” (Editorial, “Nominees – Top Medical Posts,” The Cincinnati Enquirer, 3/28/02)
