    Former Vice Presidential candidate poses question in effort to defund women’s reproductive health center.Sarah Palin threw her two cents into the Planned Parenthood debate on Sunday, suggesting the women’s reproductive rights organization has done more damage to African Americans than the Confederate flag has. The former Vice Presidential candidate posed the question on Facebook via the following image. Palin has posted several more #DefundPlannedParenthood stories over the past few days, representing a position that’s widely shared among Republican presidential candidates and conservative media. The former Fox News contributor was sent packing from the network earlier this month, the network having...

    WeÂ’re entering the third week of the Planned Parenthood video marathon. Two videos are out with more to come. And yet the ghoulishness of the videos hasnÂ’t stopped the White House from standing by them, Hillary from defending them, and the DOJ from investigating those who exposed them for the callous barbarians that they are. Those of us who are appalled by the videos are trying to figure out what to do with the present opportunity. One author has ably explained why itÂ’s nearly impossible to defund Planned Parenthood. TheyÂ’re deeply entrenched, with one political party deeply committed to preserving...

    In the last week, a little-known anti-abortion activist named David Daleidin ignited a firestorm by releasing two selectively edited videos in which Planned Parenthood officials appear to be negotiating the sale of aborted fetuses. That Planned Parenthood is the target of a withering attack by anti-abortion activists is no surprise—they have been at war for years. But this time seems different, with some of Planned Parenthood's strongest allies drawing nervous comparisons to the 2009 sting operation that destroyed the community organizing group the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). They may be right to worry. Daleidin and major...

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) was rebuked by his Senate colleagues on Sunday as he tried to force a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood. Lee had tried to attach an amendment eliminating all federal funds for Planned Parenthood to the vote on Congress’s must-pass highway legislation. The amendment was rejected by the chair of the Senate, who called it out of order because it was not germane to the highway bill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) decided last week that he would only allow two amendments to the bill – a repeal of ObamaCare and a reauthorization of the Export-Import...

    Over the last week, as videos emerged of executives at the abortion factory known as Planned Parenthood allegedly selling aborted baby body parts, Planned Parenthood has, rightfully, come under heavy fire. Now, however, Planned Parenthood’s allies on the Left are circling the wagons to defend the abortion factory. For example, rather than investigating the potentially illegal practices of Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama’s new Attorney General, Lorretta Lynch, has announced that she is going to investigate the group that exposed the heinous actions. In addition to the DOJ investigation, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has come forward to defend Planned Parenthood. “Planned...

Sen. Rand Paul, meanwhile, said he plans to push for legislation that would cut off the nonprofit organization from receiving federal health care dollars. "There's no reason for Planned Parenthood to get any federal money, and basically the things they are doing are unacceptable to a vast majority of people -- pro-life or pro-choice," said Paul, a Kentucky Republican who is seeking the GOP's 2016 presidential nomination, on CBS' "Face the Nation"...

That chant needs to be amplified and expanded: “Black lives matter, beginning in the womb!” We need to shout this out across the nation.

    Cecile Richards, who recently linked the racist history of baby parts harvesting Planned Parenthood to the NAACP and makes a six digit salary as CEO of the abortion giant, is being again mocked by a national feminist group. Recently, the group, Center for Medical Progress released two videos capturing TOP Planned Parenthood doctors admitting to harvesting the organs of unborn babies as late as 17-22 weeks for what some claim amounts to profit. Shortly after their release, the national feminist organization, New Wave Feminists uploaded a parody video comparing the ghoulish operation to Nazi doctor Josef Mengele. Planned Parenthood’s PR...

    IN an essay in his 1976 collection, “Mortal Lessons,” the physician Richard Selzer describes a strange suburban scene. People go outside in the morning in his neighborhood, after the garbage trucks have passed, and find “a foreignness upon the pavement,” a softness underfoot. Looking down, Selzer first thinks he sees oversize baby birds, then rubber baby dolls, until the realization comes that the street is littered with the tiny, naked, all-too-human bodies of aborted fetuses. Later, the local hospital director speaks to Selzer, trying to impose order on the grisly scene. It was an accident, of course: The tiny corpses...

    WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fast-tracked a bill to defund Planned Parenthood on Friday because of an undercover video of a Planned Parenthood doctor discussing the donation of fetal tissue after abortions. But McConnell was one of many Republicans who voted to lift a ban on fetal tissue donations after abortions in 1993 -- the very move that legalized Planned Parenthood's actions. In 1988, the Reagan administration began a moratorium on fetal tissue from elective abortions being used in scientific research. But Congress lifted that ban in 1993 when it passed the National Institutes of Health Revitalization...

    In addition to murdering thousands of babies, we now know Planned Parenthood is operating a chop-shop, selling murdered babies for parts. Two videos have been released of senior Planned Parenthood abortion executives explaining in lurid detail, while chomping on salad and wine, how Planned Parenthood abortionists “crush” babies, using a “less crunchy” method of abortion, to harvest their organs. Then they sell them. It’s despicable. Yet, in response to the natural backlash of the American people, Planned Parenthood – the largest abortion business in America – has happily admitted it conducts this gruesome, inhuman practice. It claims it’s following “the...

The video clearly shows the counselor encouraging the young girl to allow herself to be victimized in violent sexual encounters with her partner. The staffer tells the investigator that “it’s very common to experiment with different things,” including “being tied up” and “whipped” and “the baby thing, where they will put on diapers[.]” Some girls like being “spanked,” “hit,” or “whipped,” said the counselor.

However, the media neglected to showcase that Kansas really has good reason to probe abortion businesses. PPKMM’s Overland Park abortion business, Comprehensive Health, did indeed have onsite abortion specimen procurement for years— involving at least two companies during the 1990s according to testimony.

    Planned Parenthood is hitting back on claims clinics may be illegally selling fetal tissue, after an undercover video showed an official discussing how they collect fetal body parts. The tissue is donated for research, the group said, and they don’t profit from it. But so far, Planned Parenthood hasn’t specifically addressed a separate question: whether their doctors actually alter the timing and method of abortions to get that tissue, which also would be illegal under federal law. And that question may be a focal point as lawmakers on several congressional committees launch investigations into the group.

    ( – Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, received $528.4 million in taxpayer funding, according to its 2013-2014 annual report, which runs from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014. The report shows that Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements” during a one-year period, the latest figures available.

    WASHINGTON, July 23, 2015 ( - On Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) proposed that Congress stop looking to investigate Planned Parenthood and instead investigate the Center for Medical Progress, the pro-life organization that recently exposed the abortion conglomerate's sale of baby organs for profit in a series of undercover videos. Pelosi claims they created an unnecessary controversy for no reason. Weighing in on the Planned Parenthood controversy for the first time since the videos went public, the self-described Roman Catholic said, "Let's have an investigation of those people who were trying to ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy...

    Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said she will look into Planned Parenthood in Massachusetts to determine whether any local offices may have been involved in the tissue donation controversy that has hit the women’s health group over the past week. “My office spoke with Planned Parenthood and they assured us this type of alleged activity does not happen here,” Healey told Boston Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting.” “That said, we are going to review it, we are going to ask questions, as always is the case. We will always make sure to look at any evidence of illegal activity here in...

    WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHY On July 14th and July 21st, the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives casually discussing the harvesting and sale of baby body parts. It was sickening. It was horrifying. In both videos, the abortionists filmed - Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services and Dr. Mary Gatter, the President of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council - candidly discuss the harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies and the haggling of prices for these baby body parts. The abortion...

    A heady bouquet: "Dr" Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Research, explains over a nice cabernet how to evacuate an intact calvarium. If abortion were the respectable medical procedure its proponents insist it is, there would be no such thing as "Planned Parenthood", anymore than there is a Planned Hernia megacorp. We are told constantly that abortion is a very teensy-weensy, barely statistically measurable, all but undetectable micro-sliver of the wide range of "women's health" services Planned Parenthood provides. So it only does an estimated third of a million abortions per year - or about as many abortions...

    FULL TITLE: Minnesota lawmakers urge Governor Dayton to investigate Planned Parenthood after undercover videos released ROCHESTER / ALBERT LEA, Minn.

  • Planned Parenthood’s ultrasound problem: Good for harvesting organs, bad for business

    Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council, was seen in a second video released yesterday by the Center for Medical Progress, haggling over fetal organ procurement compensation. While the haggling was by far the most damning part of the conversation, Dr. Gatter also mentioned off-hand her involvement with political action and research on various issues in the abortion industry – one of them being, in her words, an ultrasound study yielding “nuanced” results. Despite the fact that multiple studies prior to this one have found that close to 80 percent of women change their minds and choose...

    BISMARCK — A federal appeals court on Wednesday affirmed a lower court’s decision to block a 2013 North Dakota law that would have imposed the strictest abortion ban in the nation by outlawing abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected, at about six weeks of pregnancy. The New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, which filed the lawsuit in June 2013 on behalf of the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo, the state’s lone abortion provider, applauded the opinion issued by a three-judge panel of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. “It’s beyond time these anti-choice politicians in North Dakota and...
