    Planned Parenthood loses 27 more facilities in 2017 and is down to 597 in the US. Prior to 2002, there was no easy way of verifying exactly how many Planned Parenthood medical facilities existed in the United States. Planned Parenthood published a number every year and we had to believe its number. But, by 2002, the network of STOPP contacts across the United States had grown so much that we could verify a lot of PP’s claims. In addition, the Internet had become very useful and helped us track everything. As a result, we began doing an annual survey of...

    SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia’s world-famous Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, will be closed to climbers from 2019, its management board said on Wednesday, ending a decades-long campaign by Aborigines to protect their sacred monolith in the Northern Territory. A board of eight traditional owners and four government officials voted unanimously to close the rock to climbers, a spokesperson told Reuters. [snip]

    A local council in the United Kingdom has banned a rare bookseller from having a stall in Loughborough Market after someone complained that novelty mugs she had for sale could be “offensive to Muslims”. The mugs, sold by 56-year-old stallholder Tina Gayle, featured Knights Templar iconography and their Latin motto, which is based on the words of Psalm 115:1 — “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.” Ms. Gayle told MailOnline the council sent her a letter asking her to remove the mugs, and when...

    Akron, Ohio — Right to Life of Northeast Ohio has informed Operation Rescue that two Ohio abortion facilities that have a long history of egregious health violations and botched abortions have closed under mysterious circumstances. The closures appear to be voluntary. The Akron Women’s Medical Group, located in Akron, Ohio, is listed on a Google search as “permanently closed.” This facility conducted surgical and medication abortions. It’s Ambulatory Surgical Facility License is listed as “active.” However, the license expired on April 30, 2013, and has been under renewal status ever since, allowing the facility to continue operations.

    TRENTON, N.J. -- The budget stalemate between Republican Gov. Chris Christie and the Democrat-controlled Legislature smoldered on Monday with the state government shut down and state parks closed to the public - but not to Christie and his family - as the Fourth of July approaches. Christie, who spent part of Sunday lounging with his family at a beach in a state park he had ordered closed, said he would sign any budget lawmakers sent to him and blamed the shutdown of nonessential services, including motor vehicle offices, on Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto. "I'm a little frustrated, quite frankly,...

    West Virginia women who want an abortion are down to only one in-state choice now, as one of the state’s only two abortion clinics closed its doors earlier this week. Kanawha Surgicenter closed as of 5 p.m. Tuesday, according to a note posted on the door of the clinic in Charleston’s Kanawha City. A woman who answered Dr. Gorli Harish’s phone and said she is his wife said the family moved to California two years ago to be closer to their children and grandchildren. The doctor had been commuting to Charleston once a month to perform procedures and no longer...
  • Peugeot car plant closed as Muslim workers took ‘too many prayer breaks’

    The future of France, and of Europe in general, can be glimpsed in this episode. “The Aulnay site closed because Muslim employees were constantly taking unscheduled prayer breaks and had become unproductive. It’s the truth. A Peugeot official told me that it was one – but obviously not the only – of the reasons the plant was shut down.” They may have considered it their due to receive payment from unbelievers even while not working. In Islamic law, non-Muslims have the duty to provide for the upkeep of Muslims. British jihadist Anjem Choudary said in February 2013: “We are on...

    Something has to be done about the mainstream media for trying to thwart the will of the people. Some form of punishment MUST be meted out to those who have for YEARS tried to drag this nation down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah. Failure to act in this matter will instill in them the will to cause some permanent damage in the future. They must face some form of severe punishment for what they have done and are doing.

    IT was a spectacular disaster, a multibillion-dollar failure so abject that retailers are looking at it for what not to do. As senior staff reveal just what went wrong, companies hoping to conquer Australia are looking at Target Canada to see what makes a global brand fall on its face. The US chain — which is unconnected to the Australian one, although they share similar branding — expected to settle in to its neighbouring country with ease. Instead, customers quickly deserted the depressing stores with their empty shelves, poor service and broken technology. Target Canada filed for bankruptcy protection after...

    The name Steven Chase Brigham is notorious on both sides of the abortion movement. The late-term abortionist lost his license to practice in five states, faced criminal charges for killing late-term babies, employed a sex offender and more. Despite his disgraceful reputation, Brigham still runs more than a dozen abortion facilities in three East Coast states: Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia, according to his business website. This month, one of his Virginia abortion clinics was shut down, at least temporarily. The Washington Post reports state investigators found filthy, dangerous conditions that compromised patient safety inside Brigham’s Fairfax abortion clinic during...
  • Abortion Clinic in California Closes Down Because They Were “Not Getting Enough Clients”

    A California abortion clinic with a reputation for injuring women recently shut its doors for good. According to Californians for Life, the Women’s Health Specialists abortion clinic in Santa Rosa, California closed this spring after 28 years in business. Abortion clinic workers said the business closed because “there were not enough clients.” Pro-lifers were holding regular 40 Days for Life prayer vigils outside of the abortion clinic when it closed. The group said it plans to continue the vigils outside of the abortion chain’s other locations in Sacramento, Redding and Chico. “If an abortion business in Santa Rosa can close...

    Political commentators noticed something interesting early on about Donald Trump's surprising sweep through the Republican primaries — the mogul seems to do better in states that let almost any voter help pick the party nominee, not just those registered to a party. In those open primaries, Trump has come out ahead in 13 out of 16 states. In states with closed primaries, Trump won only six out of 14 states. Overall, Trump has won closed states about half as often as he's won those open states. Both primaries in Utah and Arizona are "closed," meaning only registered Republicans can vote....

    South Bend, Indiana, home of Notre Dame University, will become abortion free next week as the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend will officially close. The abortion center stopped doing abortions back in November — it has continued to refer women for abortions since then — and now it will close up shop for good. The closing comes after the state refused to renew its operating license following a host of problems. The clinic’s troubled owner, abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, will surrender his facility license now that he has dropped his appeal of a decision issued in June by the Indiana State...
  • Planned Parenthood facility in business for 30 years to close due to drop in clientele

    Planned Parenthood has announced that it will close its facility in Blacksburg, Virginia, and refer patients to its Roanoke location. Paige Johnson, senior vice president at Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, suggested the closure was due to a drop in clientele and the expansion of other providers in the area that offer health care at little to no cost. The location at 700-J N Main Street, which opened 30 years ago, now advertises medication abortions up to eight weeks and six days LMP. With other alternatives in the region, the need for the Blacksburg Planned Parenthood is non-existent. Planned Parenthood mentioned...

    A Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located on Havendale Blvd in Winter Haven, Florida, has closed its doors as of February 1, 2016. Situated inside Spring Lake Square, the Planned Parenthood sat among restaurants, a movie theater, and businesses that fill the earth-tone-colored suburban strip mall. Sidewalk Advocates for Life, which reported the closure, shared that this is the first abortion facility in the group’s short 22-month-history to shut down. The group encouraged its counselors to continue dedicating their time to counseling abortion-minded women, and to advocate on the sidewalks for the preborn.

  • Selma, Alabama, reportedly abortion-free as illegal facility ceases abortions

    The historic city of Selma, Alabama — a battleground during the Civil Rights Movement — is now reportedly abortion-free, after pro-lifers confirmed that abortionist, Samuel Lett, has ceased abortions in his illegal abortion facility. The abortion practice has been transformed into a weight-loss center. Under Alabama law, medical centers that commit 10 or more abortions each month must be licensed as an abortion facility. Investigations into the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic, which was operated by Lett, revealed that the center was committing more than the allotted amount. Leaders from CEC For Life, Operation Rescue, Life Legal Defense Foundation, the National...

    Banks and the stock exchange will remain closed today after Greek citizens queued all weekend to withdraw savings. Banks in Greece and the country's stock exchange will be shut all week in a sign of the deepening financial crisis. The drastic move comes after people rushed to withdraw their cash amid panic ahead of the referendum on bailout terms. Under the controls, there will be a daily €60 limit on withdrawals from cash machines, which will reopen on Tuesday. Speaking in a televised address, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged calm and insisted bank deposits were safe. He blamed European partners...

    As more money continues to flow into the pockets of Mexican drug cartels, traffickers need to maintain a solid network of places—often along the southwest border—where they can launder drug money. However, in an attempt to stymie these efforts, several major US banks have been closing numerous branches in the region and shutting down hundreds of customer accounts. According to a WSJ report, the Arizona border town of Nogales, population 21,000, is feeling the financial pinch most strongly. In the past several months, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America Corp. and Citigroup Inc.-owned Banamex USA have shut a total of four...

    During a Q&A session following his speech on middle class economics to the City Club of Cleveland Wednesday afternoon, President Barack Obama revealed on thing he would do differently if he could start his presidency over knowing what he knows now. “I think I would have closed Guantánamo on the first day,” he told the crowd. The reason he didn’t, Obama said, is that at the time there was bipartisan agreement that the detention facility should be closed. Instead of making it happen right way, the president chose to sign an executive order that tasked a group with figuring out
