    The former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in southeast Texas says she had a "change of heart" after watching an abortion last month — and she quit her job and joined a pro-life group in praying outside the facility. Abby Johnson, 29, used to escort women from their cars to the clinic in the eight years she volunteered and worked for Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. But she says she knew it was time to leave after she watched a fetus "crumple" as it was vacuumed out of a patient's uterus in September.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has appointed a state judge who once served on the board of Planned Parenthood to the state Supreme Court, against the urgings of a conservative group who claimed the pick would put "another activist" on the court. Anchorage Superior Court Judge Morgan Christen, 47, will be the second woman to serve on the state's high court. Former Gov. Tony Knowles appointed current Chief Justice Dana Fabe in 1996. Christen was one of two judges recommended for the post by the Alaska Judicial Council, an independent citizen's commission that evaluates judicial appointments for...

    National antiabortion leaders put the finishing touches yesterday on a letter to be sent to all members of Congress, urging suspension of more than $300 million in federal funding of Planned Parenthood until a massive criminal case brought in Kansas against the abortion rights organization is settled. That launches an attack against the nation's largest purveyor of "reproductive health care" -- including abortions. On Oct. 17, Johnson County District Judge James F. Vano in suburban Kansas City spent eight hours reviewing a 107-count grand jury indictment against Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri. He decided there was "probable cause" to...

They said she had Kalache's name and prison number tattooed "over various parts of her body", and that he had wanted Courtney to "prove her love to him by undertaking a 'mission' before he would commit to marriage".

    With no immediate solution in sight to immigration issues, demonstrators are calling for a boycott to underscore the economic power of immigrants. Millions of people, including those in the U.S. illegally, are expected to skip work and boycott businesses nationwide on Monday. However, some are hoping a simple e-mail message will slow that boycott's momentum. Millions of Americans log on to their computers to check their e-mails every single day, and some people are taking advantage of the current era of cyberspace technology to voice their opinions on immigration reform by forwarding mass e-mails. “To all the real Americans, you...

The organization previously said it would provide morning after pills to victims, instead of food or shelter, and is now raising money off of the hurricane for its local abortion centers. On its national web site, Planned Parenthood solicits funds for Hurricane Katrina support efforts. In fine print, the abortion advocacy group explains that all of the money raised will be used to support its local abortion businesses.

As if denying even that their own ideas can evolve, they've recently taken up their dusty arms against an old, familiar issue — the teaching of evolution in public schools. New Name, Same Agenda The supposed rival to the theory of evolution — creationism — now goes by the new name of "intelligent design."

    Can you say ''perverse''? Planned Parenthood in Indiana and Kansas is effectively fighting to protect child rapists from potential prosecution in two high-profile legal fights. That an organization devoted to the interests of women finds itself in this position is a cautionary tale of abortion-rights extremism. In Indiana, the attorney general is seeking the records of girls under the age of 14 who have visited Planned Parenthood clinics. Let that sink in: We're talking about 12- and 13-year- old girls. It is a crime to have sex with a child under 14 in the state. Under law, individuals with reason...

    Abortion “rights” proponents are finding that their position is becoming even more indefensible because of the increased viability of small-sized infants. Proponents of abortion have always maintained that abortion — that is, killing babies — is not murder, but a “termination of fetal tissue.” And the legal system has upheld that viewpoint ever since the Roe v. Wade decision, even to the point of accepting third-trimester abortions and partial-birth abortions. However, recent events have called negative attention to the “logic” of the pro-abortion stance. On September 19, 2004, twins were born to Mahajabeen Shaik — not an unusual occurrence of...

Planned Parenthood's "Choice on Earth" Christmas cards that are panned as offensive each year are returning once again. The redesigned card features the same slogan as previous years. This year's card features bubblegum pink snowflakes on the outside along with the infamous tagline. On the inside, card buyers can go with Planned Parenthood's bland holiday greeting, "Warmest wishes for a peaceful holiday season," or purchase blank cards and create a greeting...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE! DO THE READERS A FAVOR. STOP CROSS-POSTING YOUR MESSAGES!

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - The head of Iraq's delayed National Conference said Saturday that the violence raging in Shiite areas of the country would not affect the crucial gathering due to start the next day.

The conference was to have been held by the end of July under a law passed...

    The Family Foundation of Virginia Defending Faith, Family, and Freedom Across the Commonwealth Victoria Cobb, Director of Legislative Affairs Wednesday, July 21, 2004 Action Alert: Summer Homework for Parents-- What Are They Teaching Your Children? Over a decade ago, public schools in Virginia began teaching "Family Life Education" (FLE), a euphemism for sex education. The Virginia Board of Education dutifully invented standards of learning (SOL) and curriculum guidelines in the teaching of Family Life Education, including: the value of postponing sexual activity until marriage (abstinence education); human sexuality; human reproduction and contraception, including the benefits of adoption as a positive...

    Anti-war group sues over planned pre-convention march The Associated Press July 19, 2004 5:22PM BOSTON - A coalition of groups that wants to march to the FleetCenter the day before the Democratic National Convention sued the city Monday after it was told it must stop its march two blocks away. The A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition said the city cited security reasons when it denied their request to march directly in front of the FleetCenter. "The whole threat of terrorism, you can't continue to use that as a blanket excuse to suppress civil liberties," said Dustin Langley, volunteer for the A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition. Mary...

    More than 200 Friends of Planned Parenthood met Tuesday for their annual Spring Luncheon and awards presentation at Amarillo Country Club while outside a group of about 20 protesters stood vigil at the West Ninth Avenue entrance. The event was peaceful on both sides as the "pro-choice" advocates quietly entered and left the event and the "pro-life" group displayed posters, including one of an aborted fetus, and prayed. No negative exchanges occurred between the two factions. "One thing about it, those folks have a perfect right to be there," Claudia Stravato, chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Amarillo and...

    Would someone please tell me what in the world does providing the best education for our kids have to do with a pro-choice march in Washington, D.C., this Sunday, April 25? Why does the powerful and influential National Education Association feel it should have any role whatsoever in co-sponsoring such an event—to the point of allowing the NEA headquarters near the White House to act as a hospitality center for the “March for Freedom of Choice,” while the nation’s nearby state affiliates in New Jersey and elsewhere organize buses to bring in demonstrators for the all-day affair? So, tell me,...

    Coalition Educates on PSM While PSM Obfuscates By Andrew L. Jaffee, November 7, 2003 Home   Search   Forum   Terms A broad coalition of conscientious, peace-loving individuals and organizations has done great work in exposing the Palestine Solidarity Movement (PSM) and International Solidarity Movements (ISM) for what they are: racist, hateful terrorism supporters and enablers.
