  • Planned Parenthood Claims to Help Black Women, While Profiting Off the Murder of Black Babies

    Last week Planned Parenthood held a press conference to remind the world just how much they care about African Americans.  They claim to provide “vital reproductive and sexual health care services” for black women.But as I have written about before, their “vital” work actually means they are aborting a disproportionate number of black babies and profiting from charging their mothers for the abortion and then selling their body parts.Life News breaks down the real statistics behind Planned Parenthood’s claims: However, their “vital” work is much more than providing birth control and manual breast exams, which is what the mainstream media would like...

    Not one scientist who received a federal grant last year for research involving fetal tissue has donated to a Republican candidate, but about two dozen have given to Democrats. Of about 150 researchers awarded grants from the National Institutes of Health in the category of "human fetal tissue," 23 have given money to Democratic political campaigns, according to an analysis of research grantees and two decades of data from the website Open Secrets. About half of the donors gave at some point to President Obama. Six gave to one or more of the Democratic Party organizations. Others gave to various...

    Following House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) refusal to answer whether an unborn baby with a human heart is a human being, Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell wrote to Pelosi, noting that good reporters “ask tough questions,” that her answer was “disrespectful”; and that she should apologize to the reporter,’s Sam Dorman.“You owe the reporter, Mr. Dorman, an unqualified apology," wrote Bozell. "You should also answer his question."Dorman had asked Minority Leader Pelosi the question at her Capitol Hill press conference last Thursday, Oct. 1.

The college continued the push by participating in the nationwide “Pink Out” day on September 29.

    The visit to the United States by Pope Francis left a lot of goodwill behind. But there are areas where that goodwill slams into a church-state wall. The views of the church are completely out of step with American law and values when it comes to health care for women. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has just announced a lawsuit against Trinity Health Corporation, one of the largest Catholic health systems in the country. The suit highlights a key area where the Catholic Church and the law of land are colliding.The lawsuit says Trinity is failing in its duties...

    Trigger warning: People upset by accounts of extreme stupidity and politically craven spin may want to skip this column. Even people with a really even temperament may want to apply a layer of duct tape to their foreheads at once. That Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms is indisputable. Its officials admit it; its president has even confessed as much before Congress under oath. But when a pro-life advocate says the same thing, PolitiFact, the self-appointed arbiter of truth and falsehood on the political scene, officially rated his comments "half-true." The controversy began when Casey Mattox, senior counsel with the...

    Planned Parenthood and its allies have offered a bizarre defense against Carly Fiorina’s recent comments in which she describes “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’” They say that the living baby seen in the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) video (at the 6-min mark), aborted at 18 weeks and left to die in a stainless steel bowl, is not the baby whose brain was harvested in a PP clinic. No, they cut open the face of a different baby to...

    Planned Parenthood’s chief executive officer Cecile Richards told Congressional investigators that she had never heard of such a thing as an “abortion survivor,” calling the concept “totally nonsensical.” “When a woman comes to us to terminate her pregnancy it would be a gross dereliction of duty if we were to permit a fetus to survive the procedure,” she said. “We take every conceivable precaution to ensure that this doesn’t happen.” One precaution that Richards touted as fool proof was the harvesting of organs from the fetus. “Once the fetus has been dismembered and the organs extracted there is no chance...

    Nothing has defined Carly Forina's presidential campaign quite like her outspoken opposition to Planned Parenthood — a point she has brought up repeatedly at debates and press conferences. It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains. One expert on the topic described it...

    The American Civil Liberties Union has sued a Catholic health care provider for refusing to provide abortions. They claim Trinity Health Corporation has violated federal law by “refusing to provide pregnant women suffering emergency medical conditions with abortions necessary to stabilize them”. The 86 hospitals that fall under the corporation are required to abide by “Directive 45” which states abortion is never permitted. In June, U.S. District Judge Robert Holmes Bell dismissed a similar ACLU lawsuit against Trinity Health. He ruled federal courts have no jurisdiction over hospital policy and that patients who believed they received inadequate care should file...

    In his Weekly Address today, resident Barack Obama warned that there will be another government shutdown threat two weeks before Christmas and said he “will not sign” a short-term spending bill. The continuing resolution that Congress passed this week runs until Dec. 11. If resident Obama does “not sign” the spending bill Congress sends him to fund the government after that date, Obama will shut down the government. The government will not be funded until Obama signs an appropriations bill passed by Congress. Fortunately, there were enough votes in both parties to pass a last-minute bill to keep the government...

"A conservative journo asked Pelosi [about] what constitutes a baby being alive," MSNBC's Luke Russert tweeted, making an assumption about Dorman's political affiliations. The Washington Post's Kelsey Snell took it a step further, and initially identified Dorman in an article as a pro-life "protester." The Post has since updated its story to reflect that Dorman is, in fact, a reporter. CNS News...

They put out a video coaching young people how to make sure they get full consent before sexual activity. This is ironic, considering the Center for Medical Progress tapes include an insider saying Planned Parenthood routinely failed to seek the mother's consent before "donating" the parts of her baby to fetal tissue researchers.

    Ohio Department of Health Director Richard Hodges, an appointee of Gov. John Kasich, made a behind-the-scenes deal with Planned Parenthood and another abortion business so that they could keep doing surgical abortions while appealing a license denial. On Friday, the Kasich administration's Department of Health denied surgical license exceptions for Planned Parenthood in Mount Auburn and Women's Med in Dayton, because they do not have the ambulatory agreement with a local hospital required for a surgical facility license. In Ohio, a patient transfer contract is required in order to save the lives of women in cases of botched surgical abortions....

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Iran’s terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

In response to Whoopi Goldberg asking of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding, “What will you replace it with if you take it away?” Santorum answered: Well, first off, I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does. Planned Parenthood, for example, doesn’t provide mammograms. Now, I know people say...

    Congress had grappled with shutdown drama. On October 1, the government would have run out of money. Last time, the government was shut down, it was a sloppy attempt to gut Obamacare. It was done with the full knowledge that a) Obama would never eviscerate his signature domestic achievement (ever) and b) the Republicans never had the votes to be successful. Even with public opinion siding with the GOP over the various mandates within the health care law, Obama won. The government was reopened–and Obamacare remains the law of the land.With the current squabble over Planned Parenthood, the numbers...

The letter was released after Branstad announced Tuesday (Sept. 29) that he wouldn't pursue canceling Medicaid funding for the family planning organization.Presidential candidates usually focus on national issues rather than wade into debates over state and local issues where they are campaigning. But in this case, defunding Planned Parenthood has risen to the fore of the national political discussion...

In addition to a grilling on the shocking videos (she denied everything – it was all “doctored” even though complete unedited versions of the tapes were available), her lavish half million dollar-plus salary, first class travel and parties, and PP’s $127 million “surplus” (don’t call it a profit because PP is a non-profit, doncha know), she managed to get herself caught in a lie.  The organization stoutly maintains that only 3% of its services constitute abortions, as if it...

    Did the tragic irony of his statement not strike Jonathan Capehart? On today's Morning Joe, after disclosing that he could not bear to watch the Planned Parenthood videos, Washington Post editor Capehart expressed opposition to cutting off all funding for it. Arguing that "they do so many other things providing health care to women," Capehart continued "on my Twitter feed yesterday there was a woman who tweeted at me and said thanks to Planned Parenthood I'm still alive." Jonathan, have you given any thought to the six million people who will never be able to tweet you because their lives...
  • Archbishop:'True Intention Behind' Push for Same-Sex Marriage is 'Imposition of Totalitarian System'

    Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron of Agana, Guam has posted a message on his archdiocesean website stating that the “true intention” behind the push for same-sex marriage “has always been about the destruction of the family and the imposition of a totalitarian system.” The archbishop also predicted the next step in the process would be to use the education system so “that our children, your children, will be forced to assimilate to this pattern of non-gender.” “It is important to understand that the political pressure to push the agenda for same sex ‘marriage’ has never been about gay rights; the true...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) slammed his Republican colleagues over backing a short-term spending bill, calling Congress a "withering shadow" of what it once was. "Congress is a withering shadow," the Kentucky Republican said. "It's a shadow of what it once was. Congress has no power, exerts no power, and we walk and we live in the shadow of a presidency that is growing larger and larger and larger." ADVERTISEMENT Paul's remarks come as the Senate is expected to pass a short-term spending bill that includes money for Planned Parenthood ahead of an end-of-the-month deadline to fund the government and avoid...

    Days after Sen. Ted Cruz criticized his party’s leadership for preemptively surrendering to President Barack Obama, those GOP leaders exacted their revenge on Cruz. As the Senate voted Monday on a continuing resolution with taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, Cruz attempted to offer an amendment ending all federal funding for America’s largest abortion provider. The amendment also cut off money to implement the Iran nuclear deal. But in a departure from Senate custom, a quartet of Republican leaders blocked the Texas senator from even getting a vote on his amendment. Only one senator, Mike Lee of Utah, stood with Cruz...

    The next few sentences may be hard to read, but they must be seen and heard, with responsible and compassionate action following.

Crushing a baby’s body, while strategizing how to keep its organs intact... Selling body parts of dead babies...This is Planned Parenthood. This is what the Obama Administration is willing to shut down the government in order to continue funding. It’s been over two months since the Center for Medical Progress released its first...

    'Preemptive Surrender': Cruz Criticizes Colleagues for Passing Spending Bill that Funds Planned Parenthood Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was fuming Monday night after his Republican colleagues voted for a "clean" spending bill that fully funds Planned Parenthood. The Senate voted 77 to 19 to advance the 10-week bill, avoiding a government shutdown that was looming Wednesday. Cruz, one of several conservatives determined not to see one more taxpayer dollar go to Planned Parenthood in the wake of several disturbing videos, criticized his party after the vote for about an hour, accusing them of failing to show any passion for the causes...

    GOP primary contenders Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Lindsey Graham skipped a critical cloture vote that allowed Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell’s plan to fund the government, including Planned Parenthood, to move forward without risking a shutdown. That means Rubio and Graham, for whatever reason, skipped a key vote that would have shown where their allegiances lie regarding funding for the highly controversial abortion provider, which, based on recent undercover video investigations, is in the business of selling aborted baby body parts to the highest bidder. ........ Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, on the other hand, were present and...

    The whole world's people are becoming mass-produced, programmed, numbered, insensate things... Last night Ted Cruz couldn’t get his Republican Senate colleagues to back his proposed amendment to stop funding Planned Parenthood for one year and to prevent the Obama administration from using funds to implement the Iran nuclear deal until Congress can examine the additional agreements or “side deals” between the terrorist state and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). “You know, Obama has negotiated a catastrophic nuclear deal with Iran. Republican leadership goes on television all the time and rightly says this is a catastrophic deal. I would suggest...
