"I have great respect for the office of the presidency but about five or six weeks ago, our president made a comment in a speech when he said 'God Bless Planned Parenthood' and Planned Parenthood performs about 330,000 abortions a year and I am a Catholic, I am active in the pro-life movement and I just felt like I couldn't - I couldn't deal with that," he said. "I couldn't endorse that in any way and I was very confused by that statement. For God to bless a place where they are ending 330,000 lives a year so I chose not attend."
