Woman Denied Reproductive Health Thanks To Obama L.A. Visit
Having solved all the problems in the world, Mr. Obama headed to Los Angeles Wednesday for a bunch of high toned fancy to do fundraisers, and the dock was off-limit to civilians
(The Blaze) Witnesses say a pregnant woman in labor was prevented by authorities from crossing a Los Angeles street to a hospital Wednesday because the road had been closed for President Barack Obama’s impending motorcade.
The unidentified woman was barred from walking the few hundred feet to the hospital for at least 30 minutes as authorities waited for the president’s motorcade to pass by, witness Carrie Clifford told TheBlaze early Thursday morning.
“I felt bad for her,” Clifford said. “It does happen when Obama comes to L.A. or I’m sure anywhere else. It paralyzes the city, it does make it complicated.”
But, hey, she possibly received the honor of seeing Obama’s massive fossil fueled motorcade!

Headline comes from Balthazor in the comments, who wrote “Here’s a real life example of a woman being denied access to reproductive health care and look who’s behind it.”
Meanwhile, many other LA residents were less than impressed with Obama being in town yet again
(LA Times) President Obama may rake in the money from fawning donors during his two-day fundraising sweep through Los Angeles this week, but he’s not winning any fans among commuters who, as they do, take to social media to vent.
“Obama is visiting Los Angeles today which means I won’t be home till around 7:30pm due to traffic delays. #SMH” tweeted Twitter user West Coastin’.
“If you’re on the Westside today … don’t get trapped in traffic. Obama’s a’comin!” said Twitter user Byrd.
Two common hashtags that were popping up on local social media ahead of the president’s arrival were #Obamatraffic and #ThanksObama.
Twitter user Lark Anderson blamed the president for being late to work, tweeting: “Today I was late to work because of POTUS #ThanksObama”
But, hey, Obama’s all for the working man/woman!
Obama is expected to attend Democratic National Committee events Wednesday night and Thursday. He is also scheduled to visit Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
The trade college bit is to avoid paying the fee for using Air Force One to travel to fundraisers.
President Obama's here for two $32,500 a plate dinners so try not to drive because traffic will be bad for the rest of us poors.
