    Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Dan Ashe announced that his agency has opened an investigation of the "tragic killing" of Cecil the lion by American dentist Walter Palmer. Cecil was a major attraction at the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. Palmer reportedly paid some locals $50,000 to lure the lion outside the park. Palmer then killed the lion with an arrow. Ashe characterized the killing as "a senseless act of cruelty against an innocent animal. It has shocked the world in a way that no other act has in recent memory. It is imperative that...

    Jeb Bush Fends Off Criticism for Serving on Bloomberg Philanthropy That Gave Millions to Planned Parenthood’s Global Efforts. Jeb Bush “did not vote on or approve individual projects or programs” while serving as a leader on one of Michael Bloomberg’s philanthropies that gave millions to Planned Parenthood, his campaign said. The anti-abortion news outlet LifeSiteNews.com reported Thursday that Bush was named a founding director of the ex-New York City mayor’s Bloomberg Family Foundation, where he served until the end of last year. Before Bush departed, the organization gave $50 million for a reproductive health initiative that included work with Planned...

    MADISON, Wis. -- The sale of fetal body parts would be banned in Wisconsin and Planned Parenthood could lose millions of dollars in federal funding under bills proposed by two Republican state representatives. Reps. Andre Jacque and Joel Kleefisch circulated their proposal banning the sale and use of fetal body parts for co-sponsorship Thursday, with a deadline of Aug. 6. They said the bill was in response to videos showing a Planned Parenthood medical director in southern California meeting with people posing as potential buyers of intact fetal specimens. Federal law prohibits the commercial sale of fetal tissue but allows...

    SAN FRANCISCO – An association of abortion providers is asking a court to block the release of recordings they say were made by an anti-abortion group that has previously revealed several surreptitiously recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research. The National Abortion Federation filed a lawsuit Friday in San Francisco, seeking a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress. The lawsuit says the center's representatives recorded federation members at their annual meetings with the goal of smearing those who support abortion rights.

    Maybe the undercover investigation conducted by the Center for Medical Progress needed to happen so people could see and hear the gruesomeness of Planned ParenthoodÂ’s harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. Maybe it was too easy to ignore without video-taped evidence in plain, gory language. Maybe it is not enough to be outraged at abortion on its face because, I donÂ’t know, killing is somehow worse if body parts are sold.But anyone who has followed the Human Genome Project, cloning, genetic, evolution, and stem cell research knows that the use of fetal and embryonic body parts and tissues...

The legislation follows four shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. But if that legislation is defeated by Senate Democrats, as is expected, a group of 18 House Republicans say they will hold up any bill to fund the federal government that does not contain language in it to de-fund Planned Parenthood. “We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood,” they wrote in a letter...

David Daleiden, CMP’s project leader, tells CNN that the conversation included an admission that they “sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with.” Daleiden notes, “That could be prima facie evidence of born-alive infants” — and a potential series of violations of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA), passed into law in 2002. And that’s why “they’re very scared of it,” Daleiden says … right before the interviewer changes the subject:

A single lion, which was unknown to most of us, gets hunted for sport. International drama. I despise the thought of big game hunting, but it never ceases to amaze me how rhetorically violent animal rights activists become when these creatures are harmed or killed. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has called for the hunter involved, Dr. Walter Palmer, to be hanged.

Speaking on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough took his critique a significant step further, asserting that if a conservative group were caught doing what Planned Parenthood has done, "there would be indictments already going down."

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest conceded on Thursday to “merely repeating” what Planned Parenthood has released in response to a series of videos of the organization’s executives discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue.“I’m merely repeating what I’ve seen that they [Planned Parenthood] have said,” Earnest said, catching himself mid-sentence.Earnest accidentally confirmed Breitbart reporter Charlie Spiering’s assertion the White House was adopting Planned Parenthood’s talking points without reviewing the evidence.Earnest said he suspected someone in the White House had watched the undercover Planned Parenthood footage, but said he is unsure if the president has seen any of the videos released...

    NEW YORK, July 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of "unrestricted access to abortion" around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board. In 2010, Jeb was named one of the founding directors of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, established as a tax-exempt foundation to advance the vision of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned from the board at the end of 2014...

    Several pro-life organizations have announced a protest of Planned Parenthood centers nationwide after the abortion business was exposed in a grisly baby parts operation. The August 22, 2015 event organized by the pro-life groups Created Equal, the Pro-Life Action League, 40 Days for Life, and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, is a call for pro-life activists to gather outside Planned Parenthood facilities all across America. “Our goal is to raise awareness of the heartless and even illegal activities of Planned Parenthood by going to where the killing and harvesting of body parts from aborted children takes place,” organizers write on...

    The ongoing Planned Parenthood scandal is a fascinating story that has a lot of facets that illustrate many disturbing aspects of American society. Although it is difficult to do so, I’m going to ask readers here to set aside the horrifying aspects related to abortion and the sale of baby parts for a moment to focus on one particular aspect that has largely gone unnoticed. The investigation of the Center for Medical Progress by the Department of Justice has rightly been decried as a transparently political move by the right, but it illustrates a much larger truth: the rule of...

    As the undercover videos from the Center of Medical Progress have come out, I’ve heard some disheartening remarks about them online. One of the statements I’ve heard is the idea that these videos will only serve to galvanize the pro-life crowd and strengthen our beliefs. Some people, both pro-life and pro-choice, believe the videos won’t move people who already support abortion. This is completely false. As I shared in a previous article, people on all sides of this issue are being impacted by these videos. Here are some comments left under the third video from horrified viewers: Dane Trumbore 1...

    In Less Than Human, Dr. Smith asks, “What is it that enables one group of human beings to treat another group as though they were subhuman creatures?” According to Dr. Smith, the answer isn’t difficult to come by. He concludes, “Thinking sets the agenda for action, and thinking of humans as less than human paves the way for atrocity. The Nazis were explicit about the status of their victims. They were Untermenschen — subhumans — and as such were excluded from the system of moral rights and obligations that bind humankind together. It's wrong to kill a person, but permissible...

    In the fourth and most startling undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) admits that about 10 percent of their second trimester babies are born “intact” before the abortion procedure is done. CMP points out that “since PPRM does not use digoxin or other feticide in its second trimester procedures, any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law (1 USC 8).” Because PPRM does not use digoxin, this would mean women who are dilated, but have not had the abortion procedure,...
  • Defunding Planned Parenthood is “going to take actual guts.” Its latest scandal has plenty of those.

    Conservative commentator Dustin Siggins recently said that for Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood, “it’s going to take actual guts.” Well, the abortion chain’s latest scandal has plenty of those. It also features hearts, lungs, kidneys, and “as many intact livers as possible.” That came to light a few weeks ago when the Center for Medical Progress released a video of Dr. Deborah Nucatola. Nucatola is Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, and she’s shown having lunch with individuals she believed were from a fetal tissue procurement company. Over the course of the meeting, Nucatola says that Planned Parenthood affiliates...
