The grand jury later returned indictments against Daleiden and Merritt. Shaffer stated publicly that he was informed by the District Attorney’s office that no...

    Wichita, KS – On Sunday, Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood appeared on ABC News where she was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos. Rather than answering the questions Mr. Stephanopoulos asked, Richards attempted to deflect by making false statements against those behind the videos that were recently released by the Center for Medical Progress. While Richards did not mention any names, she obviously was referring to Troy Newman, who is one of three members of the CMP Board of Directors. Richards said: The folks behind this, in fact, are part of the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement that has...

Ironically, I had never heard his observations before as I was actually a reporter on the scene during those same protests. “Having grown up in a Christian home and having accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at the age of nine, I just assumed that I was pro-life, even though I can’t recall ever hearing a sermon on the topic.

    To the dismay of California’s people of faith, the California Department of Managed Health Care has reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state to begin covering surgical abortions immediately. Even churches are not exempt from funding abortions. Operation Rescue opposes this policy that forces men and women who deeply oppose abortion on religious grounds to fund surgical abortion in violation of their faith, and encourages others to oppose it as well. “Since Obamacare was first introduced, we warned that the day could come when Christians would be...
