  • Pro-Choicers Are Actually Freaked Out About These Planned Parenthood Sting Videos

    07/24/2015 6:48:03 PM PDT · by MNDude · 32 replies
    And they should be. 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 destroy ACORN. They may be right to worry. Daleidin and major anti-abortion groups say that the footage definitively shows...

    Washington Post ^ | 7/16.15 | Petula Dvorak
    Planned Parenthood has become one of the most attacked groups in America. Daily protests, funding threats and “sting” videos featuring hired actors are the norm. Shootings, bombings, arson and chemical-weapon attacks are less frequent but still occur against the group, which has been operating since 1916 and which a Republican president — Richard Nixon, no less — funded in 1970. Seriously — El Chapo gets less heat than Planned Parenthood does. I’m tempted to wonder whether the group was involved in hiding Osama bin Laden, they get so much political vitriol. Now a group that helps 2.7 million American women...

    More than 100 immigrants the Obama administration released back into the community went on to be charged with subsequent murders, according to government data released Monday that raises new questions about whether immigration authorities are doing enough to detail illegal immigrants awaiting deportation. In one case, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted its agents didn’t find out about an illegal immigrant’s death threats and court injunctions against him until — which should have put him back in detention — until after the man was accused of a new murder. That case, involving Apolinar Altamirano, is the latest instance of...

    A manhunt was underway for two convicted murderers who pulled off an elaborate overnight escape from adjoining cells in a New York state maximum security prison near the border with Canada, police said on Saturday. Prison guards discovered that the men were missing during an early morning bed check in the Clinton Correctional Facility, in Dannemora, about 40 miles south of the Canadian province of Quebec. Both inmates are considered a danger to the public, state police said. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo described the escape, the first from the prison's maximum security facility in its 150 year history, as...

Now, Israel is surrounded by an exploding movement of bloodthirsty ISIS murderers. Contrary to what President Obama would have you believe, the I in ISIS doesn’t stand for International. What is exploding around Israel in the Middle East is now a modern death cult. Only in a culture as warped and backwards as the Middle East could a video of a human being burned alive in...

    Planned Parenthood clinics did 327,653 abortions in its fiscal year 2014 (which ran from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014), according to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s newly released annual report. That works out to an average of 37 abortions per hour or nearly 1 every 90 seconds. Planned Parenthood also received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements, which equaled 41 percent of its revenue. The federal government is prohibited from paying directly for abortions through Title X family planning grants and reimbursements; however, federal funds do pay for Planned Parenthood operations, including the clinics where abortions are...

    Diplomacy: The White House says Cuba's Raul Castro may soon visit. If he does, it'll be an ugly blot on President Obama's record. Since when does the U.S. welcome brutal military dictators into the people's house? Speaking to flabbergasted reporters, President Obama's spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday that the White House "wouldn't rule out a visit from President Castro," just after explaining that Obama wanted to travel to Cuba. That would be the diplomatic trade-off for an administration visit to the island, which would undoubtedly be a repeat of Obama pop-star pal Beyonce's pleasure trip last year in a miasma...

Of the 169 immigrants with homicide-related convictions released in fiscal 2013, all but 15 were required to be let go because of specific court orders or because the immigrants had been held for too long under the rules established by a sweeping 2001 Supreme Court case, the Homeland Security Department said...

    President Barack Obama is testing a much-needed replacement for Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen whose media-magnified death helped spike African-American turnout in the 2012 election. The new campaign-trail martyr is Clayton Lockett, an African-American who kidnapped four people, including a 18 year-old woman whom he raped and then killed after she watched her grave being dug for 20 minutes. Obama has the same motive as he did 2012 — boosting turnout of his most important bloc.

By the time of his transfer, Lopez had a history of mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, and was prescribed a number of prescription drugs, including Ambien.

Brown has allowed the release of nearly 1,400 lifers, while going along with the parole board about 82 percent of the time.

    In the English language, the word “Spartan” has come to mean austere. The culture of ancient Sparta was so harsh that mothers would send their sons off to war with the warning, “Return with your shield or on it.” Spartan austerity began at birth. New-born infants were examined and if they were not fit, they were left to die. Infanticide was not unusual in the ancient world. But, in Sparta, it was managed by the state with chilling efficiency. What mattered most was not the individual, but the nation. Weak individuals were not allowed to drain the strength of one...

What’s the price Americans are paying for an open door policy?” King claims that Cutler responded, “‘I don’t know...

According to Israeli intelligence some of these released murderers are likely to rejoin terrorist organizations and may kill again.

The United States government had pressured the Israeli government to release these prisoners because the Palestinian Authority had made...

The legislation is aimed at crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), which are clinics often set up by a church or other anti-abortion groups. Democrats in Congress and other pro-abortion groups say these clinics are known to indicate they can perform abortions in order to attract pregnant women patients, and then try to convince them to carry their babies to term.

    It doesn't matter; people will forget them again because we have become inured. I don't think we've completely lost our ability to be shocked. People will always remember that 20 children died at Sandy Hook. But the murderers are running together, fusing themselves into the obscurity they so badly wanted to escape. Maybe there are just too many of them. Maybe it is a collective self-defense mechanism on our part, our way of making them less real. Or maybe it is our little protest, our refusal to give anything of value -- even the effort to recall a name --...

    TEHRAN, Iran — Five Iranian officials who were held in Iraq for more than two years by U.S. forces on suspicion of aiding local Shiite militants returned to Iran Sunday, where the Iranian foreign minister hailed their return as a victory for Iran. The five diplomats flew to Tehran from Iraq on Sunday and were met at the airport by a cheering crowd of onlookers who carried the men on their shoulders and put garlands of flowers around their necks. Iran's Foreign Minster Manouchehr Mottaki in a news conference with the men that was carried by Iran's Press-TV minutes after...

    With the recent face-plant of Todd Akin in Missouri, Democrats think they have hit on a winning theme for their convention in Charlotte. Agenda changes show that Democrats will make Akin the poster boy of the GOP and focus the three-day affair on abortion and contraception policy, Paul Bedard reports: Just as the Akin crisis was reaching a crescendo, the Democrats on Wednesday announced that three starlets of the pro-choice movement will be featured at the convention, an event that will now drive the liberal charge that the Republicans are anti-women.Democrats said that they will feature Cecile Richards, president of...

    OTTAWA, 16 August, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The largest association of doctors in Canada, in an attempt to stonewall a looming abortion debate from being unleashed, voted yesterday to support the wording of the country’s Criminal Code which states that a baby becomes a “human being” only after being born. Pro-life doctors and leaders have condemned the move as ‘shameful’, ‘unethical’, and ‘defying parody’. Delegates to the Canadian Medical Association’s annual general council voted on the motion so as to prevent what they called a “backdoor” attempt to reopen the abortion debate. They voted to pass, says a CMA report on...

    Warning: Vulgarity ahead. I wrote last week that a Newsweek article favorable to the personhood movement and personhood leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason had “riled abortion proponents.” Little did I know how much. Someone posted Mason’s home address in a comment to the Newsweek article. Newsweek closed down comments, but it was too late. At 1:30a on June 27, Mason “was in the basement, catching a movie and having a beer, to just chill,” according to a follow-up Newsweek piece, when he heard a loud noise: “[I] thought one of our kids had fallen down the stairs.” Mason says he...

    Abortion clinics across the nation have increasingly been offering discounts for their services on Sundays, partly to counter afternoon church protests by believers opposed to such clinics and the practice of abortion. Examples of such offers include the Orlando Women's Center abortion clinic in Florida, which advertises discounted abortions with the offer: "LIMITED TIME SPECIAL! PRINT THIS PAGE AND BRING IT IN FOR $50 SAVINGS. ONLY ON SUNDAYS!" The website Fund Abortion Now provides financial support to women seeking to have abortions and collects funds to aid them with their decision across all 50 states. "The 100+ local abortion funds...

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) –  Although a legal loophole has long allowed the process, a California legislator has proposed a bill to formally allow non-physicians – including midwives – to perform abortions. Now a state pro-life group wants to know who has been anonymously paying for and conducting an existing training program. State Senator Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, introduced a bill allowing non-physicians, such as midwives and nurse practitioners, to perform suction abortions after receiving training through a state project. “I think it endangers women’s health,” Dana Cody, president and executive director of Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF),...

    LifeSiteNews.com reported some time ago about Planned Parenthood’s latest, most bizarre effort to drum up support for its indefensible industry: holding a 40-day prayer campaign in favor of abortion. Kathleen Gilbert reported the 40 Days of Prayer material “lists 40 different prayers for those involved in the ‘sacred care’ of abortions to continue protecting, providing, and embracing the procedure - including mothers, escorts, abortionists, and everyone involved except the unborn children.” However, most of the national reporting has failed to convey the full breadth and diversity of the undertaking. The campaign is modeled on the more successful 40 Days of...

    NOTRE DAME, Indiana, March 30, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The University of Notre Dame has stood by its decision to publish a list of “internship opportunities” on its website that includes pro-abortion and leftist organizations, while one professor at the school has lashed out at members of the conservative group petitioning against the listing, calling them “monsters.” TFP Student Action, the conservative watchdog group that is leading a 10,000-strong petition against the school’s inclusion of pro-abortion groups on an internship web page, reported Friday that not only had Notre Dame kept the listings, but that the school was found to have...

    If there is one word that captures the Orwellian nature of contemporary feminism, it is "choice." It's not just the word's wide use as a euphemism for abortion. You can understand why people on that side of the abortion issue prefer to frame their position in abstract terms, as a defense of liberty, rather than concretely discussing the specific freedom they are defending. Some of them are no doubt sincere in saying that they favor "the right to choose" in general and have no brief for abortion in particular. But not all. People who claim to favor "reproductive choice" are...

    Democratic Lawmaker: Nurses and Midwives to perform Abortions? A Democratic state senator wants to allow Nurses and midwives to perform early abortions. Senator Christine Kehoe says 'non-doctors' should be allowed to perform some abortions in the first trimester. Right now only doctors and surgeons are allowed to carry out the procedure.
