    According to a Fox News report, $80 million in stimulus funds intended to help small businesses struggling through coronavirus economic hardship have gone instead to Planned Parenthood, the multi-billion dollar abortion business. Under the CARES Act’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Congress allocated $349 billion in federal funds to provide assistance to small businesses with fewer than 500 employees. According to the Department of the Treasury, funds may be used to pay up to eight weeks of payroll costs including benefits” as well as “interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.” In August 2019, Planned Parenthood rejected Title X federal funding after...

    Americans are vigorously debating the merits of continuing to lock down the U.S. economy to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Garza was standing with two nuns praying the rosary and holding a hope bag to hand out to any of the moms entering or leaving...

    An explosive new video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) contradicts past claims from Planned Parenthood that the corporation never participated in the sale of aborted baby body parts but merely donated them and was compensated for expenses. Featuring testimony from Planned Parenthood officials under oath in 2019, as well as documents from those officials’ admissions, the video shows these executives and directors admitting to actually selling body parts, which is illegal. Numerous depositions are featured in the video, including from Tram Nguyen (Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s Senior Director of Abortion Access), Dr. Dorothy Furgerson (Chief Medical Officer of...

    The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed millions of dollars to research treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 as the pandemic continues to spread across the globe. Those endeavors are now fueling a lot of conspiracy theories. Of course even Bill Gates made some strange comments that fueled those conspiracy theories. Back in March he said, the country needs to go much further with a longer, coordinate shutdown to effectively turn back the spread of the disease. “We’re entering to a tough period that if we do it right we’ll only have to do it once, for six to 10...

    No, Prof. Pinker, Belief in an Afterlife is Not a ‘Malignant Delusion’ A May 20 Washington Post op-ed claimed that evangelical Christians are behind the Republican push to reopen the nation. In response, Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker tweeted on May 21, “Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier. Exhibit A: What’s really behind Republicans wanting a swift reopening? Evangelicals.” (The tweet has since been removed.)Prof. Pinker, a self-described atheist, is wrong on all points. (Practical lesson: You can be a brilliant Harvard scientist...

    Joe Biden is taking on President Trump over the economy. The former vice president’s campaign believes he has an opening with voters on an issue that has been a strength of Trump's given the economic harm caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which has locked down businesses and led to skyrocketing unemployment. They plan to argue that Trump handled the pandemic poorly, is mishandling the economy, and that their candidate is the better leader to shepherd the country to a recovery. “No one thinks the economy is in a good place right now,” said one Democratic strategist who supports Biden. “Trump...

    In the thick of primary season, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden brawled over "Medicare for All”: He called her approach “angry,” “elitist,” “condescending”; she shot back, anyone who defends the health care status quo with industry talking points is “running in the wrong presidential primary.” Six months later, with Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee and Warren in the running for VP, she is striking a more harmonious chord.

    The woman behind the 1973 ruling legalising abortion in the US is seen admitting in a new documentary that her stunning change of heart on the issue in later life was "all an act". Norma McCorvey, known as Jane Roe in the US Supreme Court's decision on Roe v Wade, shocked the country in 1995 when she came out against abortion. But in new footage, McCorvey alleges she was paid to switch sides. The documentary, AKA Jane Roe, airs this Friday on the US channel FX. The programme was filmed in the last months of McCorvey's life before her death...

The letter is unprecedented in its direct criticism of the UN bureaucracy’s promotion of abortion as humanitarian aid.Acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development John Barsa sent UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres a letter in which he corrected Guterres for “cynically placing the provision of ‘sexual and reproductive health services’ on the same level of...

    On Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that a California church could challenge the state mandate to pay for elective abortion through the church’s health insurance plan. Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented Skyline Wesleyan Church in the San Diego area, reports that the case was returned to the district court after the Ninth Circuit found the case had been improperly dismissed. The opinion issued by the Ninth Circuit states: We hold that Skyline has suffered an injury in fact. Before the Letters were sent, Skyline had insurance that excluded abortion coverage in a way that...

    Hospitals in the United States could lose more than $500 billion in 100 days during the coronavirus pandemic, according to former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin. While Congress has appropriated $175 billion in total stimulus funding to hospitals, he said even that amount will not be enough to close the fiscal gap hospitals are facing. Without proper funding to offset major financial losses during the pandemic, the consequences to major hospitals could be dire. Large hospitals could begin to see their capabilities and care resources fade, warned Shulkin and others who have served at the helm of major hospitals. It...

    "Racists Are Going To Racist, And This Pandemic Is No Different," blared the headline on Twitter. "‘Reopen’ Protests Are Motivated By Racism, Lack of Concern for Black and Brown Lives," screamed the cover title. A helpful subtitle explained, “This op-ed argues that the calls to ‘liberate’ America are rooted in white entitlement.” All courtesy of everyone's favorite childish social justice warrior mag, Teen Vogue. Author Kandist Mallett began by complaining about “mostly white bodies who were not wearing masks nor practicing social distancing” on Huntington Beach, California.

    Joe Biden has embraced an increasingly radical pro-abortion position that contradicts his so-called Catholic faith. Presumed to be the Democrat presidential nominee, Biden recently abandoned his opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions and promised to codify Roe v. Wade into law. Last week, he went even further and called the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic. His anti-life position should disqualify him as a viable candidate for Catholic voters. As Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, said, and Pope Francis later confirmed, the abortion issue should be a “preeminent priority” for every Catholic voter. The...

    Even the abortion chain Planned Parenthood is struggling during the coronavirus crisis. Its Greater New York affiliate recently admitted that it had to lay off nearly one third of its staff this spring as patient visits dropped by more than half, Crain’s New York Business reports. This is good news for life. Planned Parenthood’s “core mission” is abortions, and abortions are not essential or necessary. They are life-destroying procedures that kill unborn babies and often harm mothers. According to the report, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York laid off 135 employees and furloughed or reduced the hours for 150 more....

    An effort by Iowa lawmakers to stop taxpayer dollars from funding the abortion giant Planned Parenthood was blocked in court this week. The AP reports Fifth Judicial District Judge Paul Scott ruled Wednesday against a state law that prohibits abortion providers from receiving grants for sex education. Scott said the law is unconstitutional because it violates Planned Parenthood’s right to equal protection. Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union challenged the pro-life law after Gov. Kim Reynolds, the first female governor of Iowa, signed it into law in 2019. Earlier, a judge blocked the state from enforcing the law...
