    EXETER, NH, August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire is complaining that state funding cuts mean they have had to cut their hours, prompting cheers from pro-life leaders. New Hampshire became the third state to cut funding to the nation's largest abortion business, after undercover videos revealed officials calmly and jokingly discussing the sale of aborted baby organs -- and how Planned Parenthood abortionists can modify surgical procedures so as to obtain and sell intact aborted babies. As a result of losing some New Hampshire tax funding, Planned Parenthood has announced fewer hours of operation. They say...

According to this political calculus, the crucial moment arrives three days later, on March 1st, with the “SEC primary”—the belt of Southern states that encompass the Southeastern Athletic Conference—when Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas and several others hold their primaries.

    Donald Trump heaped praise on Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire in a Friday interview with a Concord radio station, calling the idea of having a woman as his running mate “absolutely great.” Trump referenced his private meeting with Ayotte earlier this year, as well as “a couple of times” they had met, in his discussion with WKXL. Calling the New Hampshire senator “a terrific woman” and “tremendous,” Trump said that he really liked her a lot and “would be somebody that you would consider” as veep.

    The debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood is boiling over in Washington. But the strongest political consequences in 2016 might come in New Hampshire. Last week New Hampshire became the third state, along with Alabama and Louisiana, to cut back state funding for Planned Parenthood in response to controversial videos documenting the group's participation in fetal-tissue-donation programs. While the dozens of presidential candidates visiting the state have all eagerly chimed in on the issue, New Hampshire will also host competitive races for Senate and governor next year. In an important state where women's health has been a central political...

    Ben Carson defended the use of fetal tissue for medical research Thursday, after a blog published excerpts of a 1992 paper describing work the neurosurgeon-turned-presidential candidate carried out using aborted fetuses. In an interview with the Washington Post, Carson called the revelation "desperate," and ignorant of the way medical research was carried out. "You have to look at the intent," Carson said before beginning a campaign swing through New Hampshire. "To willfully ignore evidence that you have for some ideological reason is wrong. If you’re killing babies and taking the tissue, that’s a very different thing than taking a dead...

    In a 1992 study, Carson and his colleagues from Johns Hopkins used fetal tissue to better understand how the human brain develops. But in the wake of the Planned Parenthood videos, the presidential candidate has called fetal tissue research “disturbing.” Ben Carson, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate, previously did research using human fetal tissue. In the wake of the hidden-camera videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors discussing how to provide aborted fetuses to scientific researchers, Carson has told Fox News that the benefits of this research have been “overpromised” and “under-delivered.” Late on Wednesday, an OB/GYN and science...
