    These are interesting times in the battle over abortion here in Tennessee. Four years ago, an effort to amend Tennessee’s state constitution was successful. Years in the making, it was one of the most expensive and vigorously contested ballot measures in the state’s history. It has led to passage of commonsense laws to regulate the abortion industry. As a practicing OB/GYN for the past two decades, I’ve often seen women who were violated by substandard care at Planned Parenthood. I know firsthand how abortion leaves women and families broken...

    On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to consider cases involving states' ability to decide whether certain health providers are eligible for Medicaid reimbursements. Conservative justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch rebuked their colleagues for refusing to take up the issue due to a tenuous connection with Planned Parenthood. "Some tenuous connection to a politically fraught issue does not justify abdicating our judicial duty," Thomas wrote in a scathing dissent joined by Alito and Gorsuch. "If anything, neutrally applying the law is all the more important when political issues are in the background." The Supreme Court refused to consider...

    FULL TITLE: Justice Thomas Blasts Supreme Court for Sidestepping Planned Parenthood: “Quit Abdicating Our Judicial Duty” U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas criticized his fellow justices Monday for refusing to do their job when they rejected a case about state efforts to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. On Monday, six of the nine justices refused to take two cases out of Kansas and Louisiana where lower courts refused to allow the states to defund the nation’s biggest abortion business. Both states, and several others, moved to revoke taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood after videos exposed the abortion giant allegedly...
  • Supreme Court won't hear appeal over effort to strip Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood

    The Supreme Court on Monday avoided a high-profile case by rejecting appeals from Kansas and Louisiana in their effort to strip Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood, over the dissenting votes of three justices. The court's order reflected a split among its conservative justices and an accusation from Justice Clarence Thomas that his colleagues seemed to be ducking the case for political reasons. The two states were appealing lower court rulings that had blocked them from withholding money that is used for health services for low-income women. The money is not used for abortions. Abortion opponents have said Planned Parenthood should...

    The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.'” “Some tenuous connection to a...

    The dispute did not involve abortion, but rather a legal battle over whether states could block Medicaid patients' access to other health services. WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left lower court victories intact for Planned Parenthood in a legal battle with states over access by Medicaid patients to the group's services. The dispute did not involve abortion, but the action by the justices keeps a hot-button political issue off the docket. Three of the court's conservatives said the court should have taken the case. After an anti-abortion group released videos in 2015 that purported to show officials...

    The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood. It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women. It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices -- Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch -- voted to hear the case. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court's liberals in not taking up the case -- showing...

    As the final weeks of the GOP-controlled Congress draw to a close, pro-life voters look on with great disappointment at the Republican politicians who failed to follow through on their most crucial promise: to defund Planned Parenthood. In about a month, Democrats will take over the House of Representatives and any hope of stripping the abortion giant of federal funding will pass away. With precious little time left in the lame-duck session, GOP congressional leaders have chosen to ignore the persistent urgings of pro-life leaders. Just last week, leaders from Live Action, Students for Life America, the Susan B. Anthony...

    “They had two years to defund Planned Parenthood, and they failed,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of the anti-abortion group Students for Life of America. “It’s a huge frustration. We worked so hard to elect supposedly these pro-life Republican officials, and we expected results.” As disappointing as this might be, it comes down to basic math, and Democrats had it on their side. The House has passed defunding language on a number of occasions, but the filibuster rules in the Senate require 60 votes for any appropriation bill. Not only couldn’t Republicans find nine Democrats to vote to strip Planned Parenthood...

    A horrible new ad created for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood uses an adorable baby girl with big eyes and precious smile to advocate for abortion on demand. The 40-second video, “The Chosen,” was created by the Agenda Project, a pro-abortion advocacy group, to promote the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. In the video, the baby girl smiles and coos among soft, white blankets while a lullaby plays in the background. “She deserves to be loved,” the ad says, between clips of the smiling infant. “She deserves to be wanted. She deserves to be a choice.” It ends by urging people...

    Most tone-deaf pro-abortion ad ever says smiling baby ‘deserves to be a choice’ The baby girl featured in the Agenda Project's pro-abortion ad. November 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – There’s missing the point, there’s shooting yourself in the foot, and then there’s the Agenda Project. That’s the left-wing advocacy group best known for the infamous 2011 commercial about Paul Ryan pushing grannies in wheelchairs off of cliffs. Believe it or not, ChoiceForTwo founder and director Laura Klassen discovered this week that that the AP actually managed to outdo that classic in 2015. The spot, titled “The Chosen,” features a closeup...

    Austin City Council has given the pro-abortion movement another gift paid for by taxpayer dollars. On Thursday, Austin City Council voted to renew an unethical arrangement with Planned Parenthood, in which the abortion business is only required to pay $1 a year to rent downtown property owned by Austin. The fair market value of the property is $111,000, indicating Austin is forfeiting large sums of money even though the city is bedeviled by financial problems. Fortunately, the Texas Legislature is planning to address this type of corruption and abuse of power through priority Pro-Life legislation. The dollar-a-year rental agreement between...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business is at it again. Any time anyone puts any common-sense limits on abortion, the Planned Parenthood abortion company somehow equates that to hating women. Never mind that it kills girls in abortions. That was the case again today as the abortion giant slammed President Donald Trump for putting a new rule in place that protects Americans from having to pay for abortions under Obamacare. The new rule doesn’t ban abortions or end abortions or do anything to prevent women who want an abortion from getting one to end the life of their unborn child. But...

    The Trump administration today issued a new rule designed to protect Americans from being forced to pay for abortions under Obamacare. Today the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a new rule directing insurers selling Obamacare plans that cover elective abortion to collect a separate payment from enrollees for that coverage, as required by law. Under the Obama administration, insurers were allowed to collect these payments together in violation of clear statutory language. In 2018, taxpayer-funded Obamacare insurance plans in 24 states and the District of Columbia are allowed to cover elective abortion with an embedded abortion surcharge....

All three have consistent pro-life voting records. Here’s more: “I plan to run...

By a 2-1 margin, residents of the left-win state voted to keep killing unborn children with taxpayer funds — and the voted for that after a massive out of state spending campaign by the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Outside pro-abortion groups poured massive amounts of money into Oregon this fall to continue forcing state taxpayers to pay for elective abortions. Oregonians considered Measure 106, which...

    Alabama voters proved once again that when people get a chance to go to the polls they generally vote for unborn children. And they did just that tonight by approving a amanemdment saying unborn babies have a right to life. The proposed constitutional amendment asked voters to “affirm that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, most importantly the right to life in all manners and measures appropriate and lawful.” The amendment also would guarantee that “the constitution of this state does not protect...

    West Virginia is one of 17 states that forces its taxpayers to pay for elective abortions. But that could change now that state voters approved Amendment 1 saying there is no right to abortion. West Virginians tonight approved a constitutional amendment that makes it clear that their state does not recognize abortion as a “right.” The Amendment One ballot measure passed the state legislature in March, and West Virginians just voted for it on their state ballot. Now that it has passed, the following language will be added to the state constitution: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a...
