    Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Ben Carson led conservatives in a rally against Planned Parenthood Tuesday, following the publication of three videos detailing the organization's sale of organs harvested from aborted fetuses. "Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation into whether Planned Parenthood nationally is a criminal enterprise breaking the law," Cruz said on the lawn on the Capitol. But the Texas senator was skeptical this would happen, adding "the Obama Justice Department in acting as little more than a partisan arm of the Democratic National Committee." Cruz is backing Sen. Mike Lee's, R-Utah, attempt...

    The latest sting video from the “Human Capital” documentary web series produced by the Center for Medical Progress is the most disturbing one yet. The horrific footage includes technicians picking over aborted baby parts, and is being described by horrified viewers on Twitter as “Godless,” “evil,” and “demonic.” The video also includes new admissions from Planned Parenthood leadership about the illicit pricing structure.One technician featured in the video fainted on the job on her first day — a reaction apparently not uncommon for people in the industry. <-- PJM_300_by_250_middle --> Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist, didn’t realize what she was...

    When the Supreme Court ruling came down in late June, extending the right to marriage to members of the same sex in all 50 states, some observers felt that the Catholic Church was fairly immune to any requirements that it would have to allow same-sex weddings before her altars. Now, though, calls for the Church to allow such nuptials are bubbling up. How far they will get is another question. The issue was raised Tuesday by a report in the New York Times that featured “gay and transgender Catholics” who are making noises with the approaching visit to these shores...

Planned Parenthood confirmed that it was the victim of a cyberattack and it has contacted the Department of Justice and the FBI. The attack, first reported by the Daily Dot, was politically motivated by a hacking group calling themselves 3301 who say they oppose Planned Parenthood's abortion practices. The hackers used a Blind SQL method (which attacks the SQL database with queries to retrieve data)...

Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., of spearheading the effort to keep taxpayer funds going to Planned Parenthood. In a statement that mentioned “gruesome videos of senior officials of Planned Parenthood discussing the selling of body parts of unborn children,” Cruz blasted McConnell for blocking an amendment by Sen.

    In the last week, a little-known anti-abortion activist named David Daleidin ignited a firestorm by releasing two selectively edited videos in which Planned Parenthood officials appear to be negotiating the sale of aborted fetuses. That Planned Parenthood is the target of a withering attack by anti-abortion activists is no surprise—they have been at war for years. But this time seems different, with some of Planned Parenthood's strongest allies drawing nervous comparisons to the 2009 sting operation that destroyed the community organizing group the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). They may be right to worry. Daleidin and major...

    No group in the United States today is making a stronger stand for liberty than the Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of Catholic nuns dedicated to running nursing homes for the elderly poor. Every friend of freedom should rally to their cause. The federal government is now seeking to deny these sisters freedom of conscience. It has already taken its case against their liberty all the way through the U.S. Court of Appeal for the 10th Circuit. If the government succeeds, it means Catholic nuns in this country can no longer freely exercise their Catholic faith. They must...

And very much under-delivered.” Yet, the promise of medical research was the defense given for the discussion by Planned Parenthood’s senior medical director, seen in an investigative video, describing how to abort a baby in such a way that allows...

The report shows that Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements” during a one-year period, the latest figures available. That means it received an average of $1,447,671 in taxpayer funds per day and an average of $60,320 every hour.

    President Bill Clinton was a supporter of fetal tissue research. A 1994 scholarly article entitled, “Issues of Property, Ethics and Consent in the Transplantation of Fetal Reproductive Tissue” authored by Heather J. Meeker gives some background: 1. The Federal Moratorium The federal government currently controls the extent of fetal tissue transplantation solely through its allocation of research funding. Federal law explicitly defers regulation of the use of fetal tissue to the states. However, in 1988, the Reagan administration injected its anti-abortion political philosophy into the field of science funding by taking a stand against fetal tissue implantation. In that year,...

    In the wake of last month’s Supreme Court ruling establishing same-sex marriage as a nationwide constitutional right, critics and supporters of the decision alike wondered what the future might hold for Americans of faith whose objections to such unions were unswayed by the judicial outcome. Will Evangelical photographers, Muslim florists, and Catholic bakers be coerced into serving gay weddings, or will they be sued and harassed into dust by the Left’s highly-choreographed pro-“tolerance” enforcement squad? Early indicators are mixed, so expect a lot more litigation on this front in the coming years, including lawsuits against churches and religious charities....

    A new undercover video shows a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.” The video released Tuesday morning, the second put out by the Center for Medical Progress, features a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014 and now works in a leadership and advisory capacity at the local and national level of the organization. Over drinks, Gatter and the undercover activists discuss “specimen” prices, eventually settling at $100 for...

    A pro-life and medical ethics group has released a second undercover video that claims to show a Planned Parenthood Federation of America official “haggling” over aborted fetuses, as well as the abortion methods used to procure “specimens.” The heavily edited, more than eight-minute video from the Center for Medical Progress features a discussion between two actors posing as tissue buyers and Dr. Mary Gatter, a doctor at Planned Parenthood and the president of the medical doctors’ council. While Gatter is seen repeatedly stating in the clip — which was filmed in February 2015 — that, ”We’re not in it for...

    "New Video: Planned Parenthood Abattoir offers “less crunchy technique” to better harvest murdered baby parts" Shock Video Catches Another Top Planned Parenthood Doctor Selling Body Parts of Aborted Babies Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed...

    In the second video released today by the Center for Medical Progress, yet another senior medical adviser to Planned Parenthood of America appears to negotiate the price of selling baby body parts to actors playing entrepreneurs from a start-up biotech firm. Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council, is asked, “What would you expect for intact tissue?” Gatter starts to haggle immediately, “Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?” When pushed for a number, Gatter says, “Well, you know in negotiations the person who throws out the figure first is at a...

    I’ve never written a column like this. Readers rarely believe it, but I am not on any political team. Generosity toward the high and mighty isn’t among my few virtues. But this needs to be said: Americans are lucky to have Barack Obama as president and we should wake up and appreciate it while we can. President Obama will go down in history as an extraordinary president, probably a great one. He will have done this in an era that doesn’t aggrandize leaders and presidents, but shrinks them. All presidents have had profound opposition, vicious enemies and colossal failures. A...

    In a second undercover video released on Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress, a top Planned Parenthood official appears to entertain the idea of “violating the protocol” which prohibits abortion doctors from altering their methods in order to obtain fetal tissue and organs donated by patients. In the video, which was filmed in February, Gatter says that she is willing to talk to the surgeon who performs abortions to see if he’s willing to use different methods in order to keep tissue and organs intact. Doing so would appear to violate both federal law and a consent form signed...

    It may be 70 years since he worked at Auschwitz, and his occupation may have been no more than clerkly; he may even, as he claims, have have protested against what was happening and attempted to extricate himself from it; but it is thoroughly and totally right that an old man should be tried, sentenced, and punished for his involvement in the monstrous horrors of the National Socialist holocaust. If is true that his actions, according to the perverted legal code in place in Germany at that time, were not illegal when he performed them, that makes not one iota...

    OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, one week after launching his bid for the 2016 presidential nomination, signed a bill Monday that outlaws non-emergency abortions at or beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy. The governor's signature makes Wisconsin the 15th state to pass similar bans. There is no exception for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. Walker's signing of the bill comes just nine months after he ran a television ad during his gubernatorial re-election campaign where he said whether to obtain an abortion is a decision between a woman and her doctor. The new law — which...

    Over 28 years as head of the Anti-Defamation League, Abe Foxman emerged as a forceful torchbearer for American Jews. He counseled presidents and diplomats, CEOs and celebrities. He took on prominent figures over anti-Semitic remarks or representations—actor Mel Gibson among them—and accepted any ensuing apologies on behalf of an entire community. No other U.S. Jewish leader has wielded as much influence with policymakers, faith leaders and U.S. Jews. On Monday, Foxman retires as national director, a major moment of transition in American Jewish life that raises questions about the future of the organization known as the ADL. […] The ADL...
