  • Planned Parenthood on GOP Debate: “Shocking and Disgusting” That They Want to De-Fund Us

    A Planned Parenthood abortion business vice-president is not happy with the pro-life Republicans at last night’s GOP debates who said they would de-fund and investigate Planned Parenthood after it was repeatedly caught selling the body parts of aborted babies. Most of the Republican candidates took strongly pro-life positions on abortion, including Scott Walker, Mario Rubio and Bobby Jindal. That didn’t it well with Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood. “It was the most shocking moment of last night’s debate: Senator Marco Rubio proudly coming clean and supporting a complete ban on abortion,” she said.

    Nearly thirty-seven years ago, Melissa Ohden survived a saline infusion abortion. Now she is the founder of The Abortion Survivors Network, an organization that exists to educate the public on abortion survivors and to offer support to those who’ve survived failed abortions. Last week, Ohden shared her testimony at the National Right to Life convention in Louisville, Kentucky. She began by explaining the abortion procedure that was intended to take her life. melissaohden10During a saline infusion abortion, the abortionist inserts a needle through the mother’s abdomen and withdraws amniotic fluid.

    Live Science reported in January on research being done by scientists at Ganogen, Inc., a biotech company in California, that transplants organs from aborted babies into lab rats with the goal of growing them for use in patients who need organ transplants. “Researchers say they have developed a new technique that will get more kidneys to people who need transplants, but the method is sure to be controversial: The research shows that it is feasible to remove a kidney from an aborted human fetus, and implant the organ into a rat, where the kidney can grow to a larger size,”...

According to a suit filed against her, after telling a patient to “drop your pants and get up on the table,” she performed an abortion without anesthesia.

    The recent surge in abortion laws -- more were enacted between 2011 and 2013 than in the previous decade -- met both success and defeat in court challenges in 2014. That fight over women's access to abortion likely will continue in the months to come, as both houses of U.S. Congress will be Republican-led, as will even more state houses. What issues will be at the battle lines? Ten states have laws in place banning abortion after 20 weeks; Nebraska was the first to pass theirs, in 2010. Proponents argue that 20 weeks is when a fetus can begin to...

    From abortion clinic owner Charlotte Taft: For many women nowadays, they’re angry that they had a choice. It’s too bizarre, but it’s like “If you weren’t here, I wouldn’t have to have made this choice.” And so, instead of feeling gratitude toward the physician and a sense of, you know, “You’ve helped me so much” a lot of the time that woman [is] in her own pain or anger, or whatever, and the doctor may not get a lot of that [gratitude] these days…When a woman doesn’t want an abortion, but simply accepts it as her fate, she is unlikely...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9-17-2014 | Dick Teresi
    Pennsylvania legislators are poised to pass into law an organ-transplant-donation bill that will make it easier for murderers to avoid detection and prosecution. Two bills, almost identical, Senate Bill 850 (SB 850) and House Bill 30 (HB 30), according to its many bipartisan sponsors, will greatly increase the number of organ donors. There are currently 121,000 people on the national waitlist for organ transplants, and laws to increase the organ supply are perennially popular in many states. Those opposing such laws are commonly accused of condemning to death people on the waitlist. Law enforcement officials, however, are taking exception to...

After a two-day trial in Brockton District Court, the six-person jury found him guilty of disturbing a school, trespass, and resisting arrest. Those verdicts came despite the fact that Peter's lawyer (using testimony by the prosecution's own witnesses) clearly proved that he did not commit any of those crimes. This was a monumental miscarriage of justice. In the end, the facts and...
  • The Latest Planned Parenthood Scandal The Media is Ignoring

    The Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation are paying out almost $2 million in a wrongful death lawsuit. That’s right, the pro-abortion organization constantly heralded by pro-choice politicians, liberal feminists and even our president, is responsible for a patient’s death. The details are disturbing: On July 20, 2012, 24-year-old Tonya Reaves, pictured right, died after a late-term abortion at Planned Parenthood’s Loop Health Center from uncontrolled bleeding, according to court documents. Other reports have implicated a 5-plus hour delay by the Michigan Avenue PP in getting Reaves to Northwestern and more delays in getting...

    Sometimes words reveal more than they are meant to. When I read the testimonials from the charitable organization Plants for Patients (P4P) I sense a ghostly sadness. P4P hands out plants to abortion patients, succulents because they are “incredibly adaptable” and “come in a vast array of colors and shapes” like the women who experience abortion. The succulent plants are growing in tiny hand-made planters made specially by a ceramic artist. The organization is neither pro-life nor pro-choice, but pro-compassion, offering gifts to women after abortion to show “love and empathy” not “shame and hate.” Why plants? Because scientific research...

She found it somewhat illogical that conservatives are so concerned about bringing babies in the world, only to turn around and not “give a damn” about taking care of them after they’re born. Lizz Winstead agreed, adding that anyone who doesn’t understand basic medical science or thinks they can stop abortions by limiting access...

Last week, even the boss of the entire system, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, managed a surprised expression when Congressman John Shimkus (R-Ill.) asked her why the agency was hiding coverage details from pro-lifers. Without skipping a beat, the HHS chief insisted she didn't know what she so clearly knew in 2009, which is that ObamaCare is the biggest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in U.S. history.</p>

    The Texas Senate gave final passage on Friday to one of the strictest anti-abortion measures in the country, legislation championed by Gov. Rick Perry, who rallied the Republican-controlled Legislature late last month after a Democratic filibuster blocked the bill and intensified already passionate resistance by abortion-rights supporters. The bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and hold abortion clinics to the same standards as hospital-style surgical centers, among other requirements. Its supporters say that the strengthened requirements for the structures and doctors will protect women’s health; opponents argue that the restrictions are actually intended to put financial pressure...

    This year has seen a rash of medical studies reporting on developments in cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) prenatal testing. Not too long ago, one commentator cautioned that as prenatal genetic testing becomes more pervasive, our society risks developing a “eugenics common sense.” The reporting on the new cffDNA testing suggests that some have already developed this sensibility. In October 2011, Sequenom, a publicly traded company, introduced its version of cffDNA prenatal testing. As the name suggests, floating in each expectant mother’s blood stream are bits of DNA from the child she is carrying. The new testing procedure tests this fetal...

Following the abortion, Reaves began bleeding heavily and it continued at Planned Parenthood for five and a half hours before a...

    In Canada, a judge in British Columbia has just struck down the law banning assisted suicide. Gloria Taylor, along with several other plaintiffs, filed suit claiming that the seriously ill should have the right to take their lives with the assistance of a doctor in Carter v. Canada. And it’s easy to sympathize with them. It’s easy to look at people suffering through a terminal illness and think that it’s cruel to deprive them of a quick, painless death as opposed to a long, drawn-out, painful one. But if you need to understand why both assisted suicide and euthanasia need...

    For decades, supporters of abortion on demand have insisted on two completely unproven assertions concerning what would happen if abortion were made generally illegal in this country. First, they have asserted, somewhat counter-intuitively and again without any proof, that such a law would not work, and women would continue to get abortions. Second, based on the first unfounded assertion, they insist that therefore women would be forced into “back alley abortions” which would presumably always be performed with a dirty coat-hanger, thus leading to massive maternal mortality. These two pronouncements have been peddled uncritically with all the fervor (and factual...

Until now.Jessica DelBalzo, an activist writer from Flemington, New Jersey who has written for numerous progressive web sites, puts her extreme pro-abortion views on display at RH Reality Check, where she candidly admits in a headline, “I Love Abortion: Implying Otherwise Accomplishes Nothing for Women’s Rights.”“I love abortion. I don’t accept it. I don’t view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it. I donate to abortion funds. I...

    She is a 91-year-old grandmother, who is not known for knitting afghans and scarves, but she does lovingly fashion hoods that kill. Charlotte started making and selling these suicide kits out of her cozy Southern California home after watching her husband die a slow and painful death from colon cancer. She blames doctors for keeping him alive. “It was terrible to treat people that way… To make them suffer to the bitter end,” Charlotte said. Charlotte, who sells her controversial kits for $60, demonstrated how they work in front of our cameras. “To die with this helium just takes you...

    As the 2012 budget battles began, Clare Coleman, CEO of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association, took to the pages of the Washington Post. In a piece called “Five Myths about Planned Parenthood,” she argued that defunding the organization was an ignoble goal for members of Congress looking to cut the bloated federal budget. She said she wanted to address “misperceptions” about the abortion-industry giant. She was joined in her goal on the front page of the Washington Post by reporter Sandhya Somashekhar, who painted a picture of Planned Parenthood that minimized the role abortion plays at the...

    By Amy Jeter The Virginian-Pilot © March 10, 2011 VIRGINIA BEACH An abortion provider who recently was disciplined in New Jersey for transporting late-term abortion patients between states owns a women's health clinic not far from the Little Neck section of the city. Dr. Steven C. Brigham had his medical license suspended last fall by the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners after authorities discovered he had begun at least five late-term abortions in New Jersey and then transported the patients to his clinic in Maryland, where state law allows second-trimester abortions outside a hospital, according to news reports.

    An abortion doctor has been arrested and charged with the murder of a patient and seven live infants whose spines were severed with scissors at a West Philadelphia clinic that has been described as a house of horrors, officials said today. District Attorney Seth Williams said the doctor, Kermit P. Gosnell, was charged following a grand jury investigation. Gosnell, 69, lost his medical license last year after health officials determined his clinic posed "a clear danger to the public." Gosnell was arrested this morning, officials said. He has maintained his innocence. The seven infants were born alive in the 6th,...

    Seeing as I just discussed murder, it seems fitting to next discuss abortion, as abortion is murder. When you get an abortion, you are killing a living organism, something that had the potential to become a fully-developed human being. I understand the perspective of the pro-life movement. However, we kill living things all the time. We chop down trees to build our homes, we kill rodents and insects when they intrude said homes, we kill fish and other animals for sport and for nutrition purposes, and neither microorganism nor mouse is safe in Smith Hall; they are constantly killed for...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Two scientists involved in the lawsuit that has blocked federal funding for embryonic stem cell research say they acted because of ethical objections. Dr. James L. Sherley and Dr. Theresa Deisher both say embryonic stem cell research is morally objectionable and unlikely to produce promised treatments or cures. "We have a responsibility and are taught to do ethical research," Sherley told The Wall Street Journal. "This is impacting the quality of science in this country." Many scientists see embryonic stem cell research as a path to treat a range of diseases because the cells can...

    Experts say judge's injunction on using federal funds effectively halts work in labs across the country WEDNESDAY, Aug. 25 (HealthDay News) -- U.S. scientists reacted with dismay to Monday's decision by a U.S. judge to halt any expansion of stem cell research using federal funds. The temporary injunction, which basically blindsided the scientific community, effectively takes embryonic stem cell research back to the pre-2001 days. That was when then-President George W. Bush ordered that federal monies could only be used to fund research involving embryonic stem cell lines created before 2001. Late Tuesday, however, the Obama administration, which had issued...
