    Just a short time after a judge issued a ruling that the biotech firm StemExpress can’t block the Center for Medical Progress from releasing another video that shows what it does with aborted babies Planned Parenthood sells to it, the pro-life group put up a preview of the 8th video in its series showing the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby body parts. While the videos have focused on the Planned Parenthood abortion business, the biotech firm StemExpress, which buys and resells aborted baby body parts from the abortion giant, has filed a lawsuit seeking to block some information...

    With the ABC and CBS preoccupied with continuing coverage of Cecil the Lion and NBC harping on Jeb Bush’s comments about women’s health, the major broadcast networks found zero time on Tuesday night to mention the fact that arguably the most disturbing video yet in the Planned Parenthood scandal was released hours earlier by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Despite multiple mentions on cable networks CNN, the Fox News Channel (FNC), and MSNBC, the “big three” networks reverted back to their old ways of censoring the CMP videos as they did in the case of the third video (plus...

    Volunteer researchers have uncovered mass graves in a South Texas cemetery that they believe contain the bodies of immigrants who died crossing into the U.S. illegally, according to published reports Saturday. The discovery at Sacred Heart Burial Park in Falfurrias came in the last two weeks, as Baylor University anthropologist Lori Baker and Krista Latham, a forensic anthropologist at the University of Indianapolis, and their students worked as part of a multi-year effort to identify immigrants who've died in the area near the U.S.-Mexico border. Teams unearthed remains in trash bags, shopping bags, body bags or without a container at...

    ELK CITY, Okla. – Emergency crews pulled two cars from Foss Lake in Custer County Tuesday afternoon. The Elk City Daily News reported human remains have been found in both vehicles. Investigators said one of the vehicles is connected to a cold case more than 40-years-old where three teenagers went missing Nov. 20, 1970. The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro crews pulled from Foss Lake may have belonged to 16-year-old Jimmy Allen Williams, who was last seen driving in Sayre with two friends, 18-year-old Thomas Rios and 18-year-old Leah Johnson. The three teens never returned home and have not been heard from...

    A coalition of pro-life groups gathered in Philadelphia Sunday evening to call on the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office to release to them the remains of 47 aborted babies found at Kermit Gosnell’s squalid abortion clinic so that the babies can have the dignity of a proper funeral and burial. Gosnell was convicted earlier this year of three counts of first degree murder for intentionally severing the spinal cords of late-term babies that had been born alive during abortions. The remains of the babies were discovered in a filthy freezer in the rat-and-flea-infested basement of a brick building on Lancaster Avenue...

    REYNOSA — Fear and panic filled the streets of Reynosa on Sunday night as rival gunmen battled during a three-hour firefight that saw automatic weapons and grenades used. Surprisingly, Mexican authorities were absent for most of the melee. The opening clashes were reported just before 9 p.m. Sunday, when rival factions of the Gulf Cartel consummated what appeared to be a yet another rift within the criminal organization. During the protracted gunbattle, dozens of gunmen were killed, but authorities Monday would only confirm the deaths of two bystanders and the injury of a third. A Tamaulipas law enforcement official, who...

An average of several bodies a day have been appearing in the river since, several activists in the northern city, which is near Turkey, told Reuters.

Captain Rick Abben, chief deputy of the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office, could not say that the bodies were those of Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook, 10, until they are positively identified by the State Medical Examiner's Office. But Abben said the families of the two cousins had been notified. "It's definitely not the outcome that we wanted," Abben said in...

On June 11, the British ambassador's motorcade was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, wounding a medic and doctor. The next day, the ambassador was gone and the British Benghazi post was closed. At the same time, the Red Cross, after a second attack, shut down and fled the city. "When that occurred," says Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, who headed the military...

Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "...

    A Glasgow-based company has installed its first commercial "alkaline hydrolysis" unit at a Florida funeral home. The unit by Resomation Ltd is billed as a green alternative to cremation and works by dissolving the body in heated alkaline water. The facility has been installed at the Anderson-McQueen funeral home in St Petersburg, and will be used for the first time in the coming weeks. It is hoped other units will follow in the US, Canada and Europe. The makers claim the process produces a third less greenhouse gas than cremation, uses a seventh of the energy, and allows for the...

The question is part of a grisly mystery that now covers two counties, as authorities in Miami-Dade try to determine whether that head and a torso discovered in a Miami Gardens canal the day after Thanksgiving belong to the same victim. Police still don't know his name, let alone who killed him, or why. "To dismember someone is really awful … It's quite evil," said Dr. Joshua Perper, Broward's chief medical examiner.

    FORT HUACHUCA — The bodies of an elderly couple were found Friday afternoon in a remote area of Huachuca Canyon on this Southern Arizona Army post.

    Two Russian immigrants looking to amass $50 million concocted a kidnapping-for-ransom scheme that ended with the bodies of five people dumped in a Northern California reservoir, a federal prosecutor said Wednesday. The trial of Iouri Mikhel and Jurijus Kadamovas opened with Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan DeWitt telling jurors the two men oversaw a crew who kidnapped and later killed the victims regardless of whether ransoms were paid. "No matter how much they (victims) cooperated or how much money was paid for their release, they were killed," DeWitt said. "The defendants did not want to leave witnesses alive." Mikhel, 41, and...

Those caskets contain the bodies of Katrina victims who were either never identified or never claimed by their families. The state had planned to bury the victims at a special site 60 miles away but Mayor Ray Nagin nixed the idea. Nagin wants the bodies buried in New Orleans. Problem is it could take at least a year to raise the million dollars needed to build a cemetery and memorial....
