President Obama on Friday at a Planned Parenthood gala in Washington said the women’s health organization is “not going anywhere,” despite GOP-led efforts to defund it. 

“It’s not going anywhere today, it’s not going anywhere tomorrow,” Obama said, according to a rush transcript. “As long as we’ve got a fight to make sure women have access to affordable, quality health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a President who’s going to be right there, fighting every step of the way.”
