    The Babylon Bee | Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire. Organization That Murders 200,000 People Of Color Each Year Takes Stand Against Racism August 17, 2017 U.S.—Planned Parenthood, the American abortion provider that mercilessly takes the lives of approximately 200,000 innocent people of color every year, took to social media earlier this week to condemn racism in the wake of civil unrest in Charlottesville, VA. “Planned Parenthood stands with people of color and allies in the face of such appalling attacks fueled by hate,” said the update posted to the Facebook and Twitter pages of the organization which overwhelmingly...

    Video game reviewers at Touch Arcade stumbled upon a sick new game app that will allow players to kill unborn babies in abortions. The “Abortion Simulator” is being developed by Kierun Studios, a company based in India that has a reputation for reprehensible games, according to the review. The game “will put you right in the middle of the surgery room and let you perform various abortions,” from early-term to “24+ week complex cases,” the developer describes. It appears that players actually will use surgical tools to reach into the womb and tear the unborn baby out in pieces. Screen...

    A group of artists in Colorado are working on special “reproductive health”-themed art – including a tampon chandelier – to raise money for the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Women’s Caucus for Art Colorado member Linda Gleitz told the Daily Camera that she is passionate about supporting Planned Parenthood. She is helping to organize the art fundraiser for the abortion business. Gleitz said artists from her group are making a variety of pieces to sell, many of them donating 100 percent of their profits to the abortion chain. The fundraiser also will include a poetry reading and music. “We do have...
  • So, When Are We Going To Take Down The Statue Of Racist Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger?

    The removal of Confederate statues around the United States has prompted a fiery debate. On one side, many argue that the statues represent history and should be left where they are, lest we forget the significance of the era in which they were erected. On the flip side, some argue that the statues are racist and have no place in modern society. But why are proponents of the latter viewpoint only upset about certain statues and not others? Why, for example, is the bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in the Smithsonian Museum not one of the statues...
  • CBS pretty proud of Iceland for 'eliminating' Down Syndrome by killing everyone who has it

    You want to denounce Nazis? Here you go, America. Don't tell me again about the moral imperative to denounce Nazis if you're going to let this slide. As Rob mentioned to me when we were discussing who would write this up, the essence of Hitler's eugenics program was to filter out children who didn't have the traits deemed optimal for the Aryan race. Horrifying? Obviously. You'd have a fit if they started aborting babies for having brown skin, or - if there was some way you could tell - for being gay. And you should have that fit. But you...

    With the rise of prenatal screening tests across Europe and the United States, the number of babies born with Down syndrome has significantly decreased, but few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland. Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

    Video at link. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized a CBS News report revealing Iceland's practice of aborting babies suspected to have Down Syndrome. Palin, whose son Trig was born with Down Syndrome in 2008, said the practice is abhorrent. "To try to snuff out a life, in the name of building a perfect race... hearkens back to Nazi Germany," she said.

    CBS reported Sunday that the majority of expecting mothers in the country or “close to 100 percent” who received a positive test for Down syndrome “terminated their pregnancy.” The network tweeted on Sunday, "Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT." The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter with a heated reply, taking aim at the wording of the CBS tweet and Iceland in the process. "Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference," she wrote.

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

    Brooke “Skylar” Richardson, an Ohio teen, landed in court last week for killing, burning and burying her newborn daughter, birthed a day or two after the school prom in May. She pleaded, “Not Guilty.” No big deal; we’ve been legally killing kids since 1973. If she hadn’t been so distracted preparing for prom, a quick trip to Planned Parenthood the day before would have done the trick with no negative ramifications. What difference does a day make?

    As a psychiatrist, the recent false accusations from Rome against faithful Catholics reminds me of couples preparing to divorce. False accusations of hostility, divisiveness and hatred occur not infrequently in marriages with high levels of conflict and with impending separation or divorce. When of an extremely severe nature, such anger can lead to demonizing a spouse in an effort to undermine the trust of the children in that spouse and to obtain their loyalty instead. This pathological behavior is referred to as parental alienation and is clearly psychologically damaging to Catholic youth, spouses and families. Spouses who make false accusations against...

    Two teen babysitters are facing child endangerment and assault charges after a disturbing video was reportedly posted online that appeared to show them laughing while putting a crying baby into a refrigerator and shutting the door, authorities said. The girls, whose names were not released because they’re juveniles, were babysitting the infant in Danvers on Monday when the shocking video was posted to Snapchat, according to published reports. The video, which was picked up by news outlets around the country, appeared to show the girls putting the crying infant sideways into a shelf inside the refrigerator, closing the door and...

    Texas is closer than ever to joining 10 other states that bar private insurance plans and those offered through the Affordable Care Act from covering abortions, except through supplemental plans. The Texas House -- over strong objections from Democrats -- gave preliminary approval to House Bill 214, which prohibits health plans from providing coverage for abortion except in the cases where the life of the mother is in danger. The House voted 95-51 to send the bill to a third and final reading. "This isn't about who can get an abortion," state Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, said of his bill....

    Former clinic Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson reveals the horrors of what she saw in new book 'The Walls are Talking' and tells Tucker why she became an anti-abortion activist. Johnson said, "I was there for eight years... I was a clinic manager so I took care of just day-to-day operations hiring and firing personnel making sure that our budgets were maintained, including our abortion quota... Every abortion facility within Planned Parenthood has a monthly abortion quota that they must meet... So they make their money about 50% of their income is just cash from abortion services."

    LifeSite News reports that The Pontifical Academy of Science (PAS) has announced yet another population control conference. You can read the article here. The bottom line is that the invited speakers at this conference include various climate alarmists who zealously preach the pretext of man-made climate change to justify their agenda of population control (including birth control and abortion) which must be carried out by global governance in order to save the planet. One of the speakers at the coming conference even said “sometimes politicians have to take citizens to task “with coercion” to overcome their own resistance to change.”...

    A 10-year-old girl who is pregnant and has been refused an abortion is at the centre of a media storm in India. The BBC's Geeta Pandey travelled to the northern city of Chandigarh to piece together her story. "We have seen lots of cases of teenage pregnancies involving 14 to 15-year-olds, but this is the first ever case that I have seen of a 10-year-old," said Mahavir Singh, of the Chandigarh State Legal Services Authority. Mr Singh has been involved in a case which has shocked Chandigarh and the rest of India, that of a 10-year-old girl who became pregnant...

    The proposal seemed modest in today's polarized political climate: The head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee suggested his group might help fund candidates who didn't share the party's support for abortion rights. The backlash from abortion-rights activists and organizations was quick and harsh. The basic message: Don't go there.

    This week the Vatican launched an international campaign against corruption and organized crime. Well, that’s not quite right. This week the Vatican announced the campaign; it will actually be launched in September. So we don’t know exactly what it will be. If you read the full announcement, released on August 2 by the dicastery for Integral Human Development, you’ll notice that the statement is short on specifics. There will be an “international consultation group,” which will promote education and public awareness of the damage done by corruption. So far, so good. But who will be the members of this group,...

    The Archdiocese of Los Angeles caused a stir by distributing an invitation to a Mass at its cathedral in partnership with a clinic that prescribes contraceptives. After receiving inquiries regarding a partnership with an organization that acts in conflict with the teachings of Catholic Church, the archdiocese acted to amend its invitation. But it’s not clear whether the clinic remains involved. No disavowal of the clinic has been made. The Mass commemorating the birth of Blessed Archbishop Oscar Romero is scheduled for August 13 with Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez as the celebrant, according to information provided anonymously to the Canon212...

    The website Deadline reports that there are not one but two movie projects attempting to glorify an underground abortion collective in Chicago that operated in the four years before the 1973 Roe v. Wade court decision legalizing abortion. One radical feminist at the Jezebel blog proclaimed this was a wonderful development "in a particularly fragile time for abortion rights." She added, "Considering our current administration I'd say the more media we can get about underground abortion collectives, the better!" Fragile? It's debatable that the current Congress can even muster the votes to defund Planned Parenthood, the nation's dominant abortion corporation,...
