Planned Parenthood Activists Say Catholic Nuns' Presence at SOTU Showed 'Disrespect'

But inviting members of the terror-linked CAIR was perfectly acceptable.

Democrats did not seem concerned that inviting members of the terror-linked organization, CAIR, to the president's State of the Union address might offended victims of the San Bernardino massacre, or any terror attack for that matter. Yet the left is highly outspoken about the offense its taken at House Speaker Paul Ryan's decision to invite Catholic nuns to the same event. 

Yes, according to Planned Parenthood activists, the mere presence of nuns is disrespectful to the pro-abortion camp. 

Abortion supporters are voicing their disapproval of the presence of the Little Sisters of the Poor at the State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, and the empty seat left by Rep. Steve King to represent the unborn, claiming these gestures were signs of “disrespect.” is reporting on a tweet sent by Planned Parenthood during the president’s speech in which they cited both Speaker Paul Ryan and Iowa Representative Steve King for showing disrespect toward the Administration’s stance against life.

At 9:12 p.m. on the night of the speech, PPact tweeted: “Never missing an opportunity, @SteveKingIA & @SpeakerRyan used tonight’s #SOTU address to send an anti-abortion message. The disrespect.”

How the presence of Catholic nuns, or even the notion that someone might oppose abortion, is deemed "disrespectful" is not clear. What is clear, however, is that hypocrisy and double standards are hallmarks of the left-wing community, as proven time and time again.
