    Project Veritas, the undercover journalism group famous for producing secretly-recorded videos that have exposed organizations like ACORN and Planned Parenthood, has made its presence known once again with the release of footage showing a Democratic operative explaining how the party has been behind efforts to foment violence at the rallies of Republican Donald Trump. The video of Scott Foval, national field director for the nonprofit Americans United for Change, explaining how Democratic operatives work to provoke and incite attendees at Trump rallies has already cost him his position. “I mean, honestly, it’s not hard to get some of these a–holes...

    SAN FRANCISCO, California, October 19, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A federal appeals court in San Francisco heard from judges, pro-life investigators, and the abortion industry on a dispute over videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s criminal activity. Justices Consuelo María Callahan, Andrew D. Hurwitz, and Donald W. Molloy of the Ninth Circuit heard the National Abortion Federation (NAF) vs. the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) on Tuesday in San Francisco’s James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse. The decision before the court was whether or not to make permanent an injunction issued in July suppressing undercover videos recorded at two NAF conventions. At...

    ( – Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) introduced a resolution last week to “recognize the importance of Planned Parenthood’s contributions to women’s health care and reproductive rights in America over the last 100 years.” The resolution voiced strong support for the nation’s largest abortion provider, declaring that “the organization remains an essential thread in the fabric of society, and it will be key in the next century to assisting millions of women, men, and young people in accessing the health care they need and deserve, no matter who they are or where they live.” “Planned Parenthood should not be defunded, attacked,...

    FULL TITLE - Gov. Jerry Brown Signs Bill Criminalizing Journalists Who Distribute Recordings of Abortion Providers A bill sponsored by Planned Parenthood that criminalizes the distribution of recordings of conversations with abortion providers is now law in California. Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1671 into law, making it illegal for journalists to distribute audio or video recordings of healthcare providers without their consent. As the Los Angeles Times reports, Planned Parenthood pushed the bill through the legislature even though it is already illegal to make these types of recordings without authorization in California. The abortion business argued that further...

    As an ardent defender of life and a person who is disgusted by the idea that we might legalize and defend the practice of murdering the most innocent among us, it falls to me (and other likeminded fellows) to remind conservatives of the evil we face. Abortion is the epitome of evil and is the gravest sin — of many — that America has ever committed, and it is left to us on the Right to fight against the scourge. It’s no easy task, of course, as abortion grows ever more engrained in our society and ever more protected by...

    The Obama administration is seeking to ban states from defunding Planned Parenthood by quietly implementing a new Title X rule that would limit states’ ability to direct federal funds. The proposed Health and Human Services rule would ban states from using criteria not based on ability to provide services when determining which family planning centers get federal funding. Several states stripped Planned Parenthood of these federal funds in the last year after a series of undercover videos exposed the non-profit’s trade in aborted fetus parts, and 13 states have now stripped the funds since 2011. “The amendment precludes project recipients...

Where is the Christian community going so wrong that a substantial majority of their own are feeling they have to have an abortion? Are Christians not talking about other options besides abortion, are they shaming women who have gotten pregnant outside of wedlock, are they ignorant of resources for women facing unplanned pregnancies?

    The California Legislature passed a controversial bill Wednesday which creates a new crime by criminalizing the distribution of secret recordings of confidential communication with a health care provider. The bill defines confidential communication as “any communication carried on in circumstances that reasonably indicate that any party to the communication desires it to be confined to the parties thereto.” It is already illegal in California to make recordings without the consent of all parties. The bill was strongly advocated by Planned Parenthood following a series of undercover videos released last summer by the Center for Medical Progress, which claimed that the...

George Soros, a U.S. billionaire and one of the richest people in the world, has been secretly pumping funds into the push to legalise abortion in Ireland. In a private memo, clearly never intended to be seen by the Irish people, Soros’ foundation takes aim at Irish laws protecting unborn babies, and commits to funding three groups who will work ‘collectively’ to legalise abortion – Amnesty Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign, and the IFPA. The revelations are hugely embarrassing for abortion campaigners. Under pressure...

Hillary has said that she “admire[s] Margaret Sanger enormously.” Reid responded by saying Sanger was not a legitimate issue because she is a “dead person.” Even worse, when Aguilar tried to make that point that a majority of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood are on minority women, Reid shut Aguilar down, calling his statement “incredibly offensive.

    Pro-abortion activists, hiding behind the (often undeserved) cloak of credibility provided by a peer-reviewed journal, made a concerted effort this week to mess with Texas. A recent study on increasing maternal mortality rates (MMR) in America made some blatantly dishonest claims about maternal deaths in the Lone Star state, concluding: “Adjusted maternal mortality rates for Texas show only a modest increase from 2000 to 2010, from a rate of 17.7 in 2000 to 18.6 in 2010. However, after 2010, the reported maternal mortality rate for Texas doubled within a 2-year period to levels not seen in other U.S. states.” Just....

The non-partisan campaign, called “My Vote, My Voice,” has the potential to reach a lot of people who don’t normally vote in presidential campaigns.

In August 2014, California informed its health insurers that they would no longer be allowed to offer health plans that exclude elective abortions.

    An Evangelical Christian leader went against the grain of her religious subset’s strong pro-life stance this week and endorsed pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton for president. Deborah Fikes is the executive advisor to the World Evangelical Alliance, which works with churches in 129 countries to spread the Christian message. The Hill reports Fikes voiced her personal support for Clinton on Tuesday after a meeting between Christian leaders and likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She called Clinton “trustworthy” and Trump “un-Christian” as she gave her personal endorsement to the pro-abortion candidate. “Hillary Clinton is the leader who people of faith are...

Among the court's eight remaining cases are regulation of Texas abortion clinics, race in college admissions, protections for people living in the U.S. illegally and the public corruption conviction of Virginia's former governor.

    An Alabama group is alleging that a young rape victim who chose life for her son experienced another traumatic situation this week when government workers took the newborn away from her.

The unnamed girl chose life for her son and gave birth to him on Monday in Alabaster, Alabama. The 14-year-old received several visits from the hospital social worker after her son was born; and on Wednesday, LaPoint said government officials from the state...

    Carol Everett was the owner of two abortion clinics and the director of four. She has since become pro-life and now shares her story to further the pro-life movement. Everett’s association with the abortion industry began in 1973, after her husband and physician pressured her to abort her third child. The mental effects of her abortion sent her life spiraling downward. She said she began drinking, had an affair, and eventually left her husband. She then started working for a medical supply company. Through this job Everett said she saw how much money is available in the abortion business, and...

    GENEVA, Switzerland, June 10, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis’ representative to the United Nations told the World Health Assembly in Switzerland last month that the Holy See “welcomes” goal 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focused on ensuring “healthy lives,” and the goal’s 13 targets. However, the representative is coming under fire because one of the 13 targets included in his praise, specifically target 3.7, calls for “universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services.” The UN defined these terms at the 1994 Cairo conference to mean providing women with “modern contraception” for “family planning” and with “safe...

    On Sunday, West Virginia’s Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act officially took effect. The law, which bans D&E abortions, passed in February but was vetoed by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. As Live Action News’ Calvin Freiburger reported, less than 24 hours later, West Virginia’s House and Senate overwhelmingly voted to override the veto. According to NRL News, the ban on dismemberment abortions was supported by 100% of West Virginia’s women senators and 83% of women delegates. The ban received extensive bipartisan support, and State Sen. Ryan Ferns argues that the ban is just common sense legislation. “We’re talking about ripping...

    United Way affiliates provide almost $3 million a year to Planned Parenthood, according to a money-tracking website that examines consumer and political causes. 2nd Vote, a conservative, nonprofit watchdog that tracks corporate spending, conducted what it calls “exhaustive” research of United Way affiliates and their giving to Planned Parenthood. “Last year, 2nd Vote compiled an exhaustive list of United Way affiliates that helped fund the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood,” 2nd Vote spokesman Robert Kuykendall said in a formal statement. “The latest available financial documentation for each of these affiliates indicates that United Way funnels almost $3 million to...

    Planned Parenthood, who receives more than $500 million in funds from the American taxpayer every year, is engaged in a highly partisan effort to elect Democrats to office - including Hillary Clinton. How do they get away with it? There's a loophole in the campaign finance laws that allows Planned Parenthood to create a separate entity to collect donations and distribute cash and services to candidates. The PPFA is a 501c3 nonprofit, while Planned Parenthood Action is a 501c4 advocacy group. They keep separate books and are not allowed by law to coordinate action. But does anyone really believe that...
