    ( – 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,...

Politicians and celebrities raised their voices protesting this crime against animal life. Our government’s Fish and Wildlife Service not only expressed deep concern for the killing of Cecil, but also launched an investigation to see if any laws were broken.

    Judge Diane Bull’s swift dismissal of the bogus charge against CMP founder David Daleiden of trafficking human organs is the latest confirmation that the indictments from a runaway grand jury in Houston were a politically-motivated sham all along. In finding that the indictment was void on its face, Judge Bull’s ruling directly contradicts the District Attorney’s argument that the indictment was valid despite the DA’s collusion with Planned Parenthood. The dismissal of the first indictment today sends a strong message to Planned Parenthood and their political cronies that colluding to suppress the First Amendment rights of citizen journalists will never...

The location in Dubuque, which offered medication abortions only, reported a drop in clientele as reason for closure. The Dubuque location was in operation for eight years, and it is among almost a dozen satellite Planned Parenthood facilities to shutter in recent years. In 2014, Planned Parenthood closed facilities in Red Oak and Creston; and over the years, the abortion giant shut down similar facilities in Ankeny, Fort Dodge, Fort Madison, Knoxville, Newton, Mount Pleasant Storm Lake, Spencer and Washington.

The case revolves around whether or not ambulatory surgical center regulations for abortion centers and hospital admitting privileges for abortionists creates an undue burden. The claim has been made that over 20 Texas abortion facilities closed, directly because of H.B. 2, and abortion activists have taken up the phrase “Stop the Sham.” It’s because of pro-lifers and their anti-abortion laws that abortion centers are closing, they say. But if they want to know the real reason so many are closing, they’ll need to look in their own backyard....

On Thursday, Bevin announced his next step to hold the abortion clinic accountable. The state filed a lawsuit this week against Planned Parenthood after it allegedly performed 23 illegal abortions at its new Louisville facility without a license, according to the Courier Journal. The Louisville abortion clinic opened in December and applied for a license to do abortions from the state; however, in late January, Bevin’s office found out that the...

    In what’s unfortunately become commonplace, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC partnered with Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision to censor from their evening newscasts on Wednesday arguably the most disturbing video yet in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal that included a description of an abortion worker harvesting an aborted baby while their heart was still beating. While the networks have shown scant interest in the videos (with coverage only on the first, second, and fourth videos), the Fox News Channel’s Special Report has repeatedly covered them and did so again for this seventh video from the...

    Florida is backing down in its confrontation with Planned Parenthood over what a state agency said were abortions being performed without proper licenses.  Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) health agency, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) originally said that three Planned Parenthood clinics were performing second-trimester abortions despite only being licensed for first-trimester procedures. The abortions were performed around 13 weeks of pregnancy, which the state said was after the 12-week cutoff for the first trimester. But Planned Parenthood countered that it is using a definition of the first trimester as within 14 weeks of the woman's last menstrual...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., August 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Some presidential candidates want Planned Parenthood defunded, but that's too good for the abortion giant, according to Rick Santorum. "They must not just be defunded; they must also be prosecuted," the presidential candidate asked. "When will this horror show end?" "What we are seeing day after day is the destruction of innocent little babies. This is murder!" "Who are we as a society if we continue to let this go unpunished?" he asked. The former Senator said the president has turned a blind eye to allegations that Planned Parenthood is trafficking in...

    As corporations and governments face increasing pressure to cut ties with scandal-plagued Planned Parenthood, let’s not forget the obvious: Catholic colleges ought to do the same.What, you ask? Catholic colleges have ties to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider and alleged purveyor of aborted human parts? How is that even possible?It’s a good question. There’s no excuse for colleges that value their Catholic identity to be linked with the corrupt—and corrupting—organization.But in her recent Crisis Magazine article titled “Catholic Colleges Collude with Planned Parenthood,” Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Anne Hendershott reminded readers of several instances of Catholic college ties...

    So, yes, “technically” that child was alive. California law is also clear: “The rights to medical treatment of an infant prematurely born alive in the course of an abortion shall be the same as the rights of an infant of similar medical status prematurely born spontaneously.” But that’s not what happened. StemExpress wanted to “procure a brain,” so the baby had to die in gruesome fashion: It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. It’s nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids. And its mouth was pronounced. And then since the fetus was so intact, she said, “Okay, this...

    Two leading pro-life organizations released a map today intended to showcase the thousands of community health care clinics that could step in for Planned Parenthood if it were to lose federal funding.The map adds to a heated conversation about whether stripping Planned Parenthood of its $500 million annual taxpayer dollars would hurt women’s health care in America, or if women would be better off without it.Alliance Defending Freedom and Charlotte Lozier Institute, the education arm of the Susan B. Anthony List, identified the different Planned Parenthood locations and community health care clinics across America.The two groups argue there are...

    Planned Parenthood is Likely Keeping Some Aborted Babies Alive “Until Their Hearts are Cut Out” Dr. Theresa Deisher is a world-renowned scientist in the field of stem cell research who holds patents after discovering adult stem cells in human hearts. Deisher helped the pro-life activists who spent three years recording undercover videos and capturing documents and information showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. Now, in a new interview, Deisher says she has reviewed the information the activists collected and she is making a shocking claim that Planned Parenthood may be keeping some babies...

    The Center for Medical Progress has released their sixth undercover Planned Parenthood video today, this one allegedly showing a former employee discussing her role in gathering blood and tissue from Parenthood clinics.The video shows Holly O’Donnell, who worked as a procurement technician for StemExpress, a Parenthood affiliate that provides biomedical researchers with donated fetal specimens. Unlike the previous videos that focused on the allegations that Parenthood is facing, the new video’s focus is on O’Donnell’s self-description as pro-life, and her discomfort with how Parenthood employees discuss tissue research with their clients.O’Donnell said in the video that Planned Parenthood is...
