    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...
  • In 'Shocking' Move, California Churches Forced to Cover Abortions

    Washington D.C., Jun 22, 2016 / 04:54 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Obama administration has rejected a challenge to the State of California’s requirement that health care plans include abortion coverage. A major federal budget amendment intended to protect abortion foes does not apply, it ruled. Leaders with the U.S. bishops’ conference said it was “shocking” that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services allowed the State of California to force all employers, including churches, to fund and facilitate elective abortions. “Even those who disagree on the issue of life should be able to respect the conscience rights of those...

    Churches in California are officially subject to an onerous state regulation that requires them to pay for abortions, thanks to a ruling by the Obama administration. The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care 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. The churches filed a lawsuit against the regulation last October, and it has been moving through the courts. They also asked the Obama administration to uphold...

    In the ongoing battle over women’s reproductive health, high-profile GOP politicians haven’t exactly praised Planned Parenthood. However, George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara, spoke in favor of the organization. In a conversation with Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards for the New York Times, Bush said that part of the mission of her organization, Global Health Corps, is counting on millennials looking to effect change in the health industry. “So many young people want to work on social change. They want to do good,” she said. “Global Health started because this great talent pipeline was not moving into health care. It’s hard...

    Illinois came one step closer to forcing its pro-life medical community to choose between violating state law and violating deeply held religious conscience Wednesday, as the state’s House approved Senate Bill 1564 and set the legislation on the governor’s desk.  The bill, which would introduce decisive changes to Illinois’ Health Care Right of Conscience Act, passed by a 61-54 margin and now awaits the signature of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.Originally put forward in the summer of 2015, the legislation would require pro-life medical providers, including 51 Illinois nonprofit pregnancy centers offering free services including ultrasound and STI testing, to take...

    Regular LifeNews readers may remember how a new abortion clinic opened in 2015 and began advertising an upscale, luxury experience. The facility, carafem, opened in Washington, D.C. with a brash advertising campaign and promises of hot tea, comfy robes and a five-star experience for women while they abort their unborn babies. The abortion business got national media attention for its ostentatious attempt to normalize and glamorize abortion. This summer, carafem announced that it opened a second abortion clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. According to a press release, carafem said it plans to launch “bold and unapologetic birth control and abortion care...

Richards was introduced by the student group H*yas for Choice, according to a tweet from The Hoya’s Twitter page, once again demonstrating the substantial leeway given by Georgetown to this “unofficial” pro-abortion club. “I can’t wait to come back when this [H*yas for Choice] is a recognized campus group,” Richards reportedly stated...

Trump made the remarks during a town hall on the "Today" show on NBC on Thursday morning when host Savannah Guthrie asked him about abortion exceptions. "The Republican platform every four years has a provision that states that the right of the unborn child should not be infringed," Guthrie said. "And it makes no exceptions for rape, for incest, for the life of the mother. Would you want to change the Republican platform to...

    At a New York campaign rally for Hillary Clinton Monday, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards pretty much said that pro-life women aren’t really women, nor do they support women’s rights. It wasn’t that specific, as she said, “A woman voting for Ted Cruz is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.” So, as a woman, you must vote for a pro-abortion candidate? And if you don’t, you’re stupid, misinformed, or worse, not really supportive of American women. It’s typical liberal bullying.

    Hundreds of abortion activists gathered at the Indiana state capital on Saturday to protest a law that protects unborn babies with disabilities like Down syndrome. The new law, signed by Gov. Mike Pence in March, is the second in the nation to ban abortions because of a genetic disability such as Down syndrome. It also bans abortions based solely on the unborn baby’s race or sex. The law includes several other abortion-related measures, such as a requirement that aborted or miscarried babies’ bodies be cremated or buried and another requirement that abortionists who have hospital admitting privileges renew them annually....

    A Planned Parenthood “manager of community engagement” removed a connection to her employer from her Twitter account this week after criticizing Hillary Clinton, in a move that suggests that unconditional support for Clinton is key to the abortion group. In a rare twist, the criticism was for Clinton not being pro-abortion enough. The criticism came in the wake of Clinton’s statement Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press that “the unborn person does not have Constitutional rights.” Though Clinton’s statement was clearly intended to convey as pro-abortion a position possible, Planned Parenthood employee Diana Arellano criticized Clinton for “calling a fetus...

Most recently, the administration has had Florida in its sights. Marissa Padilla, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services,  told the News Service of Florida that she had contacted Gov.

He is at a town hall with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, and, after Matthews badgers him for a while, he finally answers the question. “The answer is ... that,” Trump says, eyes looking to the side in thought, “there has to be some form of punishment.” He punctuates “has” with a hand gesture. Done. Final. But as it turns out — and as it has turned out repeatedly over the course of...

Hanging over the debate is the specter of eugenics—fears that the ability to manipulate the health of our future babies could devalue the sanctity of life.

The West Virginia Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, SB 10, successfully made it through the state legislature and would make it the latest state to ban the abortion method. State lawmakers are expected to override the governor’s veto. The bill passed by a vote of 86-13 after more than an hour of debate. Any abortion practitioner who violates the ban would lose his medical license, essentially prohibiting him from ever doing abortions again. This...

But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others....

    I just happened to search Warren Buffet's position on or even a statement about the on-going situation with Planned Parenthood and lo and behold look what I came up with. I've never seen this website in my life but it is conservative and present you with the link.Although there are people on the ground on this issue sometimes the head of a fish needs to be brought to focus. I'm sure they are other money "whales" and high rollers involved but here's a part of the "head"of this rotting fish called the abortion industry.
  • Big Labor defends Planned Parenthood, calls attacks 'extremist,' 'politically motivated' VIDEO

    Two of the country’s biggest and most powerful labor unions have come to the defense of Planned Parenthood, amid a series of recently released videos in which leaders of the group are seen bargaining for the sale price of fetal tissues and organs, according to Watchdog.org. Henry made the statement after the release of at least two videos and after the Republican-controlled Congress began to take action to stop federal funding for the group, which provides abortions and other women’s medical services. The for-profit sale of aborted body parts by Planned Parenthood for research is illegal. The group has apologies...

    Perhaps we’d muddle through as a republic if the federal government stopped using Planned Parenthood as a contractor, but not everyone in Congress is convinced. As the Senate moves to debate whether to end federal subsidies for the abortion industry leader, Susan Collins wonders where women will go to get “women’s health services”: Republicans have seized on a series of controversial undercover videos that show officials at the abortion rights organization discussing the price of fetal tissue to argue that all federal funding should be cut off from Planned Parenthood.But even members of McConnell’s party have their doubts that...

    Senate Republicans this week, teeming with righteous indignation, introduced S. 1881, “a bill to prohibit federal funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.” Here’s a better name for it: the Abortion Promotion Act of 2015. No doubt the authors of the legislation think that anything that hurts Planned Parenthood, the leading provider of abortions, would further the pro-life cause. But their proposal — defunding all Planned Parenthood operations in retribution for secret videos showing the group’s officials discussing the sale of fetal organs — would do far greater harm to fetuses than anything discussed in the videos. There already is...

    The New York Times editorial board called for South Carolina to take down the Confederate flag because it's racist. They said: State lawmakers who must vote on removing it need to do that now and show the nation they understand the pain this symbol of hate and brutality causes to this day. So the reason for all the renewed controversy surrounding the flag is because the man charged with killing nine African-Americans in church was seen waving it in photographs. Ok. So any symbol with a strong relation to racism should not be celebrated by the government. Got it?But...

    Callie Chatman’s linkedin page says that she is a License, Ordained Minister New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Callie’s bio also states that she worked as a Youth Minister and Adult Sunday School Teacher and she assists the pastor in any means necessary. Oddly, it also says she works at Reproducted Health, an abortion clinic in Alabama. According to a pro-life activist who side walk counsels outside an abortion clinic in Montgomery, Callie Chatman works for Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in Montgomery. A video uploaded by pro-life activist David Day, allegedly shows that Callie’s husband, Pastor Louis Chatman...

    The Hillary Clinton campaign jabbed at House Republicans after they passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks on Wednesday. "Politicians should not interfere with personal medical decisions, which should be left to a woman, her family and her faith, in consultation with her doctor or health care provider," Clinton's senior policy adviser Maya Harris said in a statement. She added that the bill conflicts with Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court decision that protects the right to an abortion. Court precedent has generally protected abortions up to the point of viability, at 24 weeks. “This bill is a direct...

    While celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Khloe Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen, and Reese Witherspoon spent Mother’s Day paying tribute to the special women in their lives, Lena Dunham observed the holiday by asking others to join her in protecting abortion rights on social media. The star and creator of the HBO series Girls has been a vocal proponent for abortion throughout her career, and as the aforementioned stars were paying homage to the ladies who gave them life Sunday, Dunham was reminding her two million Twitter followers she believes life should be given strictly by choice. She tweeted:

    With its natural wood floors and plush upholstery, Carafem aims to feel more like a spa than a medical clinic. But the slick ads set to go up in Metro stations across the Washington region leave nothing to doubt: “Abortion. Yeah, we do that.” The Maryland clinic, opening this week in Montgomery County’s tony Friendship Heights area, specializes in the abortion pill. The advertising reflects its unabashed approach — and a new push to de-stigmatize the nation’s most controversial medical procedure by talking about it openly and unapologetically. Plagued by political setbacks in recent years, abortion rights activists are seeking...

    As LifeNews has reported, the Colorado woman who cut out a 7-month-old unborn baby from a mother’s abdomen, resulting in the death of the infant, will not be charged with murder. That’s because the state lacks an unborn victims law to hold criminals accountable when they kill or injure unborn children in such criminal attacks.However, new information reveals the prosecutor in the case is an abortion advocate who has the endorsement of prominent pro-abortion groups in a previous campaign for state Attorney General and who endorsed legislation to not regard unborn children as victims of such crimes, which would allow...

    Periodically I receive emails from good pro-lifers (and occasionally from pro-abortionists) politely suggesting that what I had written was hard to believe. None exactly accused me of making it up, but the gist was hard to miss: Nobody, but nobody would ever say, could ever say what I attributed to the author of a particular article.The beauty of the Internet is that you can easily direct good-faith skeptics to the source. So, in his instance, go to “I Love Abortion: Implying Otherwise Accomplishes Nothing for Women’s Rights,” by Jessica DelBalzo.The rhrealitycheck.org site is peopled by the kind of women who...
