UPDATE: Planned Parenthood is up in arms that the Obama administration has effectively turned its back on the abortion-provider.

"This is not what we worked for. This is not what we fought for," says Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in reaction to an announcement over the weekend from the Department of Health and Human Services (see details below). "The Obama administration has decided that no woman in the new high-risk insurance pools will be allowed to obtain abortion coverage beyond limited cases (rape, incest, endangering the life of the woman). We need to make sure the Obama administration knows this is unacceptable."
