    Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., led a letter signed by 27 Republican senators asking Attorney General William Barr to investigate how several Planned Parenthood affiliates got $80 million worth of coronavirus relief funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) despite rules restricting them from receiving the money due to the number of employees the organizations have. The letter comes after "Tucker Carlson Tonight" learned earlier this week that the Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to the affiliates that improperly self-certified that they are eligible for the stimulus cash aimed at keeping small businesses afloat during the pandemic, and asking...

    EXCLUSIVE: Thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received a total of $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" has learned -- and now the federal government wants the money back, saying the affiliates should have known they weren't eligible for the coronavirus stimulus payouts. The Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to each involved Planned Parenthood affiliate explaining that affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees aren't eligible for PPP distributions, Fox News is told. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has had more than 600...

    Lawmakers accused Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday of removing protections in her $3 trillion coronavirus bill preventing cash flow to Planned Parenthood. The House Democrats’ HEROES Act, the most recent coronavirus relief package proposal, includes language that removes taxpayer safeguards in the Paychecks Protection Program (PPP) that previously disqualified Planned Parenthood from receiving aid. These safeguards were added by President Donald Trump’s administration to block Planned Parenthood from receiving coronavirus aid, a senior administration official previously told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The Paycheck Protection Program is for small businesses,” Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse told the DCNF....

    One of America’s favorite game shows “The Price Is Right” donated nearly $100,000 to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood on Monday night. Yahoo News reports the CBS special “The Price Is Right at Night” featured celebrity guest drag queen RuPaul playing for donations to the billion-dollar abortion group. According to the report, the show matched the contestants’ winnings with a donation to RuPaul’s charity of choice, and the contestants won prizes valued at $97,266. On the show, RuPaul said he chose Planned Parenthood because it “provides vital and often free services to both men and women.” But many fans were...

    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...

    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....

    Planned Parenthood of Greater New York—which launched in January after the merger of five affiliates—has laid off or furloughed nearly a third of its staff as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. About 135 employees have been laid off, and 150 have been furloughed or had their hours reduced. "It's very difficult to make that decision," said Laura McQuade, president and CEO. "We felt that in order to stabilize the organization, we had to make that decision." Planned Parenthood relies on insurance and patient revenue as well as grants and private philanthropy. All have taken a hit during the pandemic....

    Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade is facing the former vice president’s presidential campaign and the Democratic establishment without the type of pro-bono legal and public relations support that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford received. A prominent legal defense fund that was established in the wake of the #MeToo movement told Reade in February that it couldn’t support her because it would put its charitable status at risk. Reade has said she hasn’t received any offers for pro-bono public relations support to handle the deluge of reporter inquiries she has received in the weeks since her allegation...

    A federal judge has issued an order demanding that a group of pro-life activists who were behind a series of undercover videos taken at Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion conferences are liable for more than $1.2 million in damages. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick of the Northern District of California released an order Wednesday against individuals connected to the Center for Medical Progress. At issue was an Unfair Competition Law claim brought by Planned Parenthood and the plaintiffs California Business & Professions Code. Orrick ruled in favor of the claim, citing a jury verdict from last November that found...

    On March 6, I learned I was pregnant. Five days later, as the COVID-19 pandemic approached and threatened to upend our lives, my doctor, my partner, and I decided together to terminate the pregnancy. I understand what it means to be “pro-choice.” I have spent the past four years donating my time, talent, and money to Planned Parenthood whenever I can. I was (and still am!) a dedicated volunteer to support providing abortion services to anyone who wants it. Reproductive health services remain very much under threat, with some employers refusing to offer insurance coverage for contraceptives to their workers...

    At least 1,000 Kentuckians protested Saturday in Frankfort against Gov. Andy Beshear’s decision to allow abortions to continue while restricting church gatherings and small businesses. Kentucky Today reports protesters urged the governor to reopen the state and allow people to return to church and work. Like many Democrat governors, Beshear restricted church gatherings, small businesses, non-essential medical care and more to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and preserve medical supplies for life-saving medical care. However, the governor allowed an exception for elective abortions – after the state’s only abortion clinic donated to his campaign, something state Rep. Stan...

    The Trump administration has acted to ensure that no funds from the new Paycheck Protection Program, set up to assist small businesses battered by COVID-19, will go to Planned Parenthood. “President Trump is committed to ensuring Paycheck Protection Program money is used for saving jobs at small businesses, not getting the government into the business of funding abortion,” a senior administration official told The Daily Signal. “While not all Americans share President Trump’s pro-life beliefs, there is broad bipartisan support for the idea that American taxpayers should not have to fund abortion,” the official said Wednesday night. >>> When can...

    The abortion lobby is using the COVID-19 pandemic to quickly expand access to the abortion pill… and in the process, they are placing women at greater risk. In part one of this series on “no-test abortion,” Live Action News introduced the protocol, which enables abortion profiteers to dispense the abortion pill without conducting any ultrasounds (to rule out ectopic pregnancy and accurately date gestational age) or lab tests/blood work. While the details of this protocol came to light during a recent webinar sponsored by the Society of Family Planning (SFP) — which included Gynuity Health Projects and others with profit...

    Planned Parenthood leader Alexis McGill Johnson slammed pro-life lawmakers’ efforts to protect unborn babies as “unconscionable” Monday in an interview with Democracy Now. Johnson is the acting CEO of the largest abortion chain in America. Planned Parenthood aborted nearly 346,000 babies last year while reaping in $1.6 billion in revenue. Though abortions are unnecessary, life-destroying procedures, Johnson referred to them as “healthcare” in her interview with the left-wing news program. She criticized pro-life Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and others for including elective abortions in their temporary bans on non-essential healthcare during the coronavirus pandemic. Planned Parenthood is suing many of...

    New York, NY – While New York City was still in the throes of the nation’s worst COVID-19 outbreak, two ambulances responded to a medical emergency at the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood on Friday, April 24, 2020. Video provided to Operation Rescue by a local pro-life activist showed a New York Fire Department ambulance on standby while emergency responders from both ambulance crews loaded the woman into a Mount Sinai Hospital ambulance for transport. The woman appeared to be awake, but in a fair amount of distress. At the time of the emergency, New York City was enduring a lockdown...

    Conservatives should stop helping ultraconservative Democrats lie by agreeing with the Democrats' false claim that Democrats are liberals instead of ultraconservatives. Conservatives should also stop calling outdated Democratic ideas "progressive". Conservatives, like many Americans, falsely believe there are only two political "attitudes" in the United States. One attitude is called "liberal". The other is called "conservative". There is a third attitude called "ultraconservative" which has at times adversely affected American society. Real liberals are open-minded and sometimes overly optimistic about the positive impact of change. Democrats are closed-minded True Believers who tend to believe they are Right about everything and...
  • Beshear Vetoes 'Born Alive' Abortion Bill

    04/25/2020 10:57:56 AM PDT · by Republican Wildcat · 30 replies
    FRANKFORT - Kentucky's Democratic governor has vetoed abortion legislation pushed by Republican lawmakers. The bill would have given the state's Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron authority to regulate abortion clinics and the power to suspend abortions as an elective procedure during the coronavirus outbreak. Another part of the vetoed measure would have required doctors to provide life-sustaining care for an infant born alive after a failed abortion attempt. The measure cleared the legislature in the waning hours of this year’s legislative session. As a result, lawmakers won’t have an opportunity to override Governor Andy Beshear’s veto. In a statement on...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) – Gov. Andy Beshear vetoed Senate Bill 9 on Friday, saying that Kentucky law already fully protects children from being denied life-saving medical care and treatment when they are born. ... House Speaker David Osborne said he was “outraged and saddened over the decision to veto a bill aimed at protecting human life” and Attorney General Daniel Cameron called it "reprehensible." “Make no mistake, the governor had a choice and he used it to defend the indefensible,” Osborne said. “The Born Alive Act simply requires physicians and other health caregivers to provide life-saving medical care to infants...
