Does President Obama have to say "abortion" for him to support abortion rights?

There's a lot of chatter about how President Obama addressed, in person, a Planned Parenthood conference. In my opinion he gave a fab speech, filled with all the things I would want him to say. The first time I met the President he was still an Illinois State Senator and it was at a Planned Parenthood lobby day. He bought us lunch. He took the time to come say hi and thank us for our work. Honestly, I can't remember if he said the word "abortion" or not. But he was there. For me, that says a lot.

But to some the fact he did not say the word "abortion" last week was a disappointment. What say you?

BTW - The Illinois Planned Parenthood Gala is coming up soon.

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages.

Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
