News and commentary about Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood Doesn't Need Our Taxes.  Planned Parenthood is an industrial-scale baby abattoir responsible for more than 300,000 American deaths annually and a degradation of human dignity on the order of Josef Mengele, and the urgent issue of the day is whether it should be privately or publicly funded.  Democrats are for the latter.  Republicans are of the more modest opinion that if you want to slaughter your child in utero, you should have to pay for it yourself.  That is what would happen if congressional Republicans succeed in defunding Planned Parenthood, which they currently plan to do as part of the process of dismantling President Obama's Affordable Care Act.  Planned Parenthood is the recipient of more than $500 million annually in taxpayer dollars ($528.4 million in fiscal year 2013-14), or about 40 percent of its annual revenue.  Under the Hyde amendment, the organization is technically prohibited from using this money to finance abortions.  In reality, the amendment simply provides a $500-million cushion atop which Planned Parenthood can conduct its slaughterous business — and the technical separation of funds depends entirely on Planned Parenthood being scrupulous in its accounting, which it isn't, to put it mildly.

Planned Parenthood Doc Who Wanted Lamborghini for Selling Aborted Babies Caught Selling Baby Parts Again.  Mary Gatter, the Planned Parenthood senior executive who infamously was caught on tape saying "I want a Lamborghini" while discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies has been caught again.  As LifeNews reported in 2015, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in California, was caught selling aborted baby body parts to undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research.

Why Hillary Clinton Deserves Planned Parenthood's Award.  Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation that seeks every possible opportunity to glorify abortion and deify the public figures who push for total access to government-funded abortion-on-demand.  [Hillary] Clinton — who has already received Planned Parenthood's "Margaret Sanger" award, named after the group's eugenicist founder — has done little of note throughout her long and unsuccessful political career to "serve" American women and children, but she has always been a prominent and staunch supporter of abortion.  And the love goes both ways:  Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards stumped for Clinton's campaign across the country in 2016, and her organization's political-action arms donated around $38 million to Democratic candidates at all levels in the last election cycle.

Trump Revokes Obama's Parting Gift to Planned Parenthood.  States will once again be able to defund Planned Parenthood after President Trump overturned an 11th-hour Obama administration regulation protecting funding for the nation's biggest abortion provider.  Trump signed into law on Thursday [4/13/2017] a bill reversing a Department of Health and Human Services regulation signed in December that prevented states from blocking funding for Planned Parenthood.  Obama's regulation reversed the policies of more than a dozen states that had prevented federal Medicaid dollars or other federal reimbursements from going to clinics that perform abortions.  Trump signed the legislation one month after he said that he would continue to direct taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood if it stopped performing abortions.  The organization performs more than 300,000 abortions each year — about one-third of the national total.

Trump Signs Resolution Overturning Obama Planned Parenthood State Funding Mandate.  President Donald Trump signed a resolution Thursday that overturns former President Barack Obama's rule that forced states to provide family planning grants under Title X to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.  In a signing ceremony that was closed to the press, Trump signed H.J. Res. 43, which allows states to withhold federal funds from facilities that provide abortions.  In attendance were Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) administrator Seema Verma, Susan B. Anthony president Marjorie Dannenfelser, and Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America.

AG Who Charged Activists For Exposing Planned Parenthood Received Thousands In Donations From Planned Parenthood.  California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who recently charged two pro-life activists with 15 felony counts for their work exposing Planned Parenthood's sale of aborted baby body parts, received thousands in donations from the abortion provider, according to the numbers provided by Open Secrets.  On Tuesday, Becerra charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts for the role they played in an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood's "fetal tissue" trade practices.  In 2015, CMP began to release videos of the footage they obtained in their undercover operation, some of which featured Planned Parenthood officials and former employees discussing the taxpayer-funded organization's disturbing and potentially illegal practices regarding the selling of the body parts of aborted babies.  Though the state of Texas pursued charges against the activists, the charges were eventually dismissed.

New Crime in California:  Performing Undercover Video Journalism While Not a Democrat.  The Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra of California has invented a new crime:  Performing Undercover Video Journalism While Not a Democrat.  Of course, he didn't call it that.  Nor did his predecessor, now U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, when she launched an investigation of the undercover video operation to expose alleged fetal body part sales by Planned Parenthood. [...] For the most part, the mainstream media that uses similar undercover video tactics — which is how 60 Minutes made its name — has remained silent about this abuse of the criminal laws to target undercover investigations against a cherished liberal group like Planned Parenthood.

Felony charges are a disturbing overreach for the duo behind the Planned Parenthood sting videos.  It's disturbingly aggressive for [California Atty. Gen. Xavier] Becerra to apply this criminal statute to people who were trying to influence a contested issue of public policy, regardless of how sound or popular that policy may be.  Planned Parenthood and biomedical company StemExpress, which was also featured in the videos, have another remedy for the harm that was done to them:  They can sue Daleiden and Merritt for damages.  The state doesn't need to threaten the pair with prison time.

Even The LA Times Agrees:  Felony Charges Against Activists Behind Planned Parenthood Videos A 'Disturbing Overreach'.  The 15 felony charges California Attorney General Xavier Becerra leveled at two activist journalists behind a series of explosive Planned Parenthood undercover videos is such an egregious abuse of the law that even the Los Angeles Times felt compelled to call out the Democrat A.G. for his "disturbing overrreach."

Former Planned Parenthood Director ADMITS That They Kill Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions.  I'll admit — I thought the left had shut down the Center for Medical Progress and successfully swept all those undercover sting videos under the rug.  Can't have any pro-life activists maligning that sweet, innocent, most sacred abortion mill called Planned Parenthood, now can we?  But there is now a new video from CMP showing Dr. DeShawn Taylor, former director of Planned Parenthood in Arizona, talking about how some babies are born alive even after an abortion procedure.  And rather than get those children to a hospital ASAP, abortion doctors will instead just kill the baby after birth.

Planned Parenthood Abortionist Confesses She Would Let Babies Die After They Survived An Abortion.  In a new undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former Planned Parenthood abortionist explains how the abortion provider skirts state law and employees forcibly rip apart fetuses.  At a networking reception at a Planned Parenthood conference, Dr. DeShawn Taylor, a longtime abortionist in a Los Angeles facility and former medical director of Planned Parenthood of Arizona, described to CMP journalists how she would dismember a baby in order to harvest as many viable organs from it as possible.  Tiny human organs can be sold to researchers for profit.

Planned Parenthood's swanky $20 million office space proves they don't need taxpayer money.  Who says abortion can't be chic?  That's the inadvertent takeaway from a recent Washingtonian story detailing Planned Parenthood's new DC headquarters.  A far cry from your mother's reproductive health clinic, the fancy facility is both pro-choice and swanky.  But the smudged finger prints of Planned Parenthood's public relations team are clearly visible on the glossy listicle.  And the obvious attempt to solicit sympathy backfires.  If the organization can afford a $20 million privately-funded office, perhaps Planned Parenthood really won't be reduced to the dark ages without taxpayer cash.

Felony Charges for 2 Who Secretly Filmed Planned Parenthood.  California prosecutors on Tuesday [3/28/2017] charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent.

Freedom of the Press is the Law of the Land, Until You Go After Big Abortion.  The pair of citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood's alleged involvement in illicit fetal tissue trade (and a host of other inhuman, nasty things) has now been brought up on 15 felony charges in the state of California for doing so.  These charges and the pro-abortion politics from which they spring are travesties of press liberty and anathema to a free society.  The announcement came late Tuesday night [3/28/2017] from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra that prosecutors were bringing charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress, claiming that the pair broke privacy laws by recording Planned Parenthood staffers during its undercover endeavor.

Planned Parenthood Exposed for Infanticide Again, Media Campaigns for Whistleblowers' Scalps.  If you wonder just how backwards our sense of justice has become in the United States, consider that David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, whose undercover videos exposed Planned Parenthood's trafficking in fetal body parts, are being charged with 15 separate felonies in the state of California.  Meanwhile, the monsters that dismember babies and sell their parts for profit are still operating their house of horrors.  And just how horrible does it get there?  The same time the Daleiden/Merritt felony story is breaking, the Center for Medical Progress has released another undercover Planned Parenthood sting video that is going unnoticed by the corrupt media.

House Rules Committee Passes Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business.  The House Rules Committee this morning passed a bill that would defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and repeal major parts of Obamacare.  The vote sets up a full House vote this afternoon on the legislation.

Planned Parenthood's Useful Idiots Avoid the Truth.  Most Hollywood actresses, like Scarlett Johansson and other A-listers are doing their best to fundraise for the endangered abortion provider which just goes to prove that they nothing about actual Planned Parenthood activities.  These useful pawns of the progressive left actually believe that women's reproductive rights are threatened if Planned Parenthood loses federal funding.  PP spends millions in contributions to pro choice political action committees, i.e.  Democrats.  PP does not provide prenatal care.  It does not provide mammograms.  The services PP does provide are readily available in local clinics and hospitals.  Most of the funding it gets from the government is through Medicaid which these clinics and hospitals also accept; Planned Parenthood provides 40% of all abortions but it charges the patients up front for them.  PP is not free.

CBO Warns:  Defunding Planned Parenthood Would Lead to Additional Births.  The Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) report on the House Republicans' healthcare plan says the included provision to defund Planned Parenthood would result in "additional births stemming from the reduced access" to "services that help women avert pregnancies."

Defunding Planned Parenthood Would Lead To More Births Or Something.  Apparently, the primary things Planned Parenthood does is provide abortions and contraception to people who refuse to pay for their own in order to have irresponsible sex[.] [...] If only there was somewhere else someone could purchase contraceptives other than Planned Parenthood.  Perhaps the bill should change the law so that places like pharmacies would be allowed to provide contraception.  Maybe the new legislation would allow condoms to be sold in bathrooms and handed out in schools.  Too early for that amount of sarcasm?

Trump calls Planned Parenthood's bluff.  Each time Congress debates whether to defund Planned Parenthood, the inevitable refrain from the group's supporters is that the money it receives from taxpayers doesn't pay for abortions and that, besides, abortion makes up just 3 percent of its services.  The group's leaders saturate the media with their claim that their 700 clinics offer women and families "a range of health services."  But an abortion is nothing like a breast exam, which Planned Parenthood clinics offer, or a mammogram, which they do not (though its supporters often claim they do).  An abortion is much more serious and consequential.  Unlike those other services, it is not meant to protect or enhance life, but rather to destroy it.

Maryland bill would direct state money to Planned Parenthood if Congress cuts funding.  Leading Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly want to increase funding for Planned Parenthood clinics in the state if Congress cuts federal funds for the reproductive health-care services the organization provides.  Lawmakers have sponsored a bill that would allocate $2.7 million to help pay for health-care services that officials say nearly 25,000 women in Maryland could lose under a proposal introduced in Congress this week.

Watch Former Planned Parenthood Employees Discuss Abortion Quotas.  Liberals would have you believe that abortions make up an insignificant percentage of what Planned Parenthood does.  Unfortunately, the facts just aren't on their side for that particular argument.  Former Planned Parenthood employees are coming forward with their stories and experiences, proving that it is one of the most brutal, selfish, uncaring organizations to ever function.  Abortion supporters claim that they want the murder of children to be "safe, legal and rare," which is completely at odds with the quotas they placed on PP workers.  Employees at these clinics were told to preform a certain number of abortions in a given period and if they failed to do so, were made to develop a "corrective action plan" describing how they were going to do better next time.  That's right, they literally had to discuss tactics for getting MORE women to choose abortions.

President Donald Trump to Planned Parenthood:  Get Rid of Abortions to Keep Federal Funding.  The Trump administration has informed Planned Parenthood it will have to quit performing abortions in order to keep its federal taxpayer funding. [...] Maggie Haberman at the New York Times reports the White House has made an "informal pitch" to Planned Parenthood, offering continued federal funding to the nation's largest abortion business if it agrees to stop performing abortions.

The Editor says...
[#1] Planned Parenthood should not be rewarded any further for the terrible deeds it has done.  [#2] Trump comes across as a noncommittal centrist, instead of unequivocally stopping all funding for Planned Parenthood immediately.  [#3] How would anyone know that Planned Parenthood really stopped performing abortions, especially since that seems to be their specialty?  [#4] Giving taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood, or any other profit-making company, is not the proper role of government.

Trump Tells Planned Parenthood Its Funding Can Stay if Abortion Goes.  The White House, concerned about the possible political repercussions of the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood, has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions.  The proposal, which was never made formally, has been rejected as an impossibility by officials at Planned Parenthood, which receives about $500 million annually in federal funding.  That money helps pay for women's health services the organization provides, not for abortion services.

Former first daughter Barbara Bush says she's 'proud to stand' with Planned Parenthood as she helps organization raise $400,000.  Despite being the granddaughter and daughter of two pro-life presidents, Barbara Pierce Bush expressed her support for the abortion-providing Planned Parenthood organization on Wednesday.  The former first daughter was the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas' annual luncheon, held at Fort Worth's Omni Hotel.  In her speech, the 35-year-old said she was 'very proud to stand with Planned Parenthood' because of the services it provides to women.

George W. Bush's daughter will headline Planned Parenthood fundraiser.  Barbara Pierce Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, is slated to deliver the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Fort Worth, Texas, next week.  Barbara Bush has previously expressed her support for abortion, a procedure that the government-subsidized healthcare group is well-known for providing to women.  Next Wednesday, she will rally financial support for the abortion provider at its annual luncheon.

Federal judge blocks Texas' move to kick Planned Parenthood out of Medicaid.  A federal judge on Tuesday [2/21/2017] said Texas can't remove Planned Parenthood from Medicaid, issuing a temporary block of the state's ouster that will allow the provider to continue to care for patients through the program.  U.S. District Court Judge Sam Sparks issued a preliminary injunction and said the state didn't have grounds to conclude that Planned Parenthood "warranted termination from the Medicaid program as unqualified."  His temporary block will stay in place until a full trial is scheduled, argued and decided.

House Takes First Step In Allowing States To Defund Planned Parenthood.  House Republicans are moving forward with efforts to keep taxpayer dollars from going to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.  The House voted 230-188 Thursday to repeal a regulation that prohibits states from defunding organizations that perform abortions, including Planned Parenthood, by far the largest American abortion provider.  Planned Parenthood performs one out of every three abortions in the U.S., according to the Heritage Foundation.  The abortion ban was put in place by Congress Jan. 18, just two days before President Obama left office.  The Obama administration pushed through a rule that targeted family planning funding under Title X of the Public Health Service Act, requiring that states treat all health providers equally, whether they perform abortions or not.

Ex-clinic managers for Planned Parenthood say it treats women like cattle.  Former clinic managers for Planned Parenthood say the organization is less interested in providing quality health care for women than in performing as many abortions as possible.  In a video released by Live Action last week, former clinic manager Ramona Trevino compares the relationship between Planned Parenthood and women to that between a rancher and cattle.  "For me it was a struggle, because I felt like Planned Parenthood treated women like cattle," Ms. Trevino says in the three-minute video.  That sentiment is echoed by former clinic manager Sue Thayer, who recalls receiving instructions from Planned Parenthood to get patients in and out as quickly as possible.

Troubling New Videos Show Urgent Need to Defund Planned Parenthood.  Live Action, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending abortion and protecting the right to life, has released videos and findings that demonstrate the urgent need for Congress to defund America's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.  According to a report released in January, a Live Action investigation revealed that "Planned Parenthood lied to the media about retraining thousands of staff" with regard to reporting sex trafficking.  Back in 2011, the organization caught Planned Parenthood on film advising an undercover investigator posing as a pimp on how to get birth control and abortions for underage prostitutes.

Nationwide Protests Against Government Funding of Planned Parenthood Underway.  Activists in 45 states and the nation's capital are rallying Saturday [2/11/2017] to urge Congress and President Donald Trump to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood — the nation's largest abortion business.

Planned Parenthood protests take place in New York.  Protests were split as thousands rallied for and against Planned Parenthood in New York.  Many gathered in Washington Square Park Saturday afternoon [2/11/2017] and argued that the stripping of federal funding from the organization would have a negative impact especially on transgender and minority communities.

Teen Vogue Tells Girls How to Celebrate Their BFF's Abortion.  ## The article also advises the BFF of the post-abortive girl to step up to the plate and become an abortion clinic escort.  It warns that "you may come may come face to face with some very aggressive anti-abortion advocates," (nothing about the very aggressive doctors who rip an unborn child from its protective cocoon), but it's all good, because she can "make it a little easier for the next girl."  As well as enriching the friendly neighborhood Planned Parenthood abortion mill.

Hill Republicans plan to kill Obama's order on taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.  House Republicans will vote next week to liberate states from an Obama rule requiring them to subsidize Planned Parenthood.  In one of his last actions, Obama effectively forced states to fund Planned Parenthood.  Many states have policies barring state funds for the abortion giant, and Obama's 11th-hour executive order prohibited such policies.  Next week, the House plans to use the Congressional Review Act to repeal that Obama regulation — a first salvo in their fight to roll back Obama's legacy on abortion.

Planned Parenthood Scrubs "Prenatal Care" From Website After Caught Denying It to Women.  Last month, a new investigation showed employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women prenatal care.  In fact, at almost every single one of the 97 Planned Parenthood facilities investigators contacted, prenatal care was not something the Planned Parenthood clinics offered.  After LifeNews and other media outlets reported on the investigation, Planned Parenthood has scrubbed its websites have any mention of prenatal care.

Planned Parenthood Still Hasn't Produced an Annual Report.  Here's Why That's a Problem.  The Planned Parenthood annual report provides Americans — whether they are pro-life or pro-choice — with important information about abortion incidence and other services provided by the nonprofit organization, which receives over half a billion dollars from taxpayers each year.  The report data tell us, for example, that 94 percent of Planned Parenthood's "pregnancy services" were abortions, and less than 1 percent were adoption referrals in 2014-2015.  The report tells us that in the same year, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortions — one every 98 seconds.  It tells us that in the last three reported years (2012, 2013, and 2014), Planned Parenthood has aborted nearly 1 million baby boys and baby girls.  The report data also tell us that its contraceptive services have dropped.  Total services have dropped.  The number of unique patients served has dropped.  Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood reports almost $59 million in excess revenue for fiscal year 2015 and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.

Pre-Natal Care?  Planned Parenthood Staff Members Admit Ultrasounds 'Only for Abortions'.  Pro-life organization Live Action continues its series of undercover videos investigating Planned Parenthood's claim that it offers "pre-natal care" to pregnant women.

New Planned Parenthood undercover videos:  Ultrasounds only for abortions.  The nation's largest abortion chain has demanded that Republicans in Congress stop attacking "women's health care" with their proposals to bar federal funds from flowing into their coffers.  When it comes to actual caring, however, Planned Parenthood focuses its resources on abortions.  Live Action has two new videos out today demonstrating that PP's clinics use their ultrasounds — a key diagnostic tool for expecting mothers — only to prepare to terminate the life within the womb in all but a handful of their clinics.

Will the Trump DOJ Finally Launch a Criminal Investigation Into Planned Parenthood?  In late 2015, it was exposed through an undercover video investigation conducted by the Center for Medical Progress that Planned Parenthood was selling body parts of aborted babies, many of them late-term.  The investigation was extensive, with some videos showing abortion "doctors" pushing around baby brains in a petri-dish and discussing their market value.  Planned Parenthood, protected by the Democrat machine and the Obama Justice Department, denied the practice and cited any sale of tissue as necessary for medical research.  The organization wasn't criminally investigated, despite the selling of body parts being illegal under federal law.

The Numbers That Show Planned Parenthood [is] About Abortion, Not Women's Health.  As Planned Parenthood looks to spend a record $30 million this fall to influence the November elections and keep its taxpayer funding flowing, Live Action has released a new online tool pro-lifers can use to help counter the kind of propaganda $30 million can buy.  Live Action's new "3 Percent Abortion Myth" video dispels one of Planned Parenthood's greatest myths — that abortion only makes up 3 percent of its services.

We don't need to spend our tax dollars on Planned Parenthood.  There is no organization as near and dear to the hearts of abortion advocates as Planned Parenthood.  President Obama almost shut down the government in 2011 over federal funding of the nation's largest abortion vendor.  Candidate Hillary Clinton often gushed about her love of the non-profit, which has revenues of over a billion dollars, during her presidential run.  But now Planned Parenthood is in the fight of their lives as they are likely to face a defunding battle in Congress.  They are using every scare tactic in the book and throwing millions behind expensive public relations campaigns to drum up support and convince women that access to basic health care will be lost if they lose the half a billion dollars they get from taxpayers every year.  But the truth is:  we don't need Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood on Defunding of Foreign Abortion Groups: 'Access to Abortion is an American Value'.  In response to the Trump administration reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which blocks taxpayer funds to non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortion overseas, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said "access to safe, legal abortion is an American value."  On Monday [1/23/2017], White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said President Trump had "made it very clear that he's a pro-life president," and "the reinstatement of this policy is not just something that echoes that value but respects taxpayer funding as well."

Planned Parenthood Offices Nationwide Tell Callers They 'Don't Offer Prenatal Care'.  Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards likes to boast that her organization offers necessary prenatal care for women.  Supporters of Planned Parenthood and Democrat politicians do the same — but surprise! — it's just a myth.  A video from Live Action shows Planned Parenthood clinics across the country telling callers they "don't offer prenatal care."  One operator even says, "We specialize in abortions."  Callers are told over and over again that Planned Parenthood has no prenatal care or doctors, but they are reassured that if you need an abortion, you've come to the right place.

Video: Planned Parenthood Denies Prenatal Care to Undercover Journalists.  An undercover video investigation from the pro-life activist group Live Action appears to show employees at multiple Planned Parenthood clinics turning away clients asking for prenatal care.  Prenatal care is a benefit the organization touts as one of the many services they offer women beyond pregnancy termination.  According to the Live Action video, only five of the 97 Planned Parenthood clinics contacted in the nationwide investigation were able to offer any level of prenatal care.

Investigation: Planned Parenthood Lies About Offering Prenatal Care.  When Planned Parenthood executives and defenders (read: financial beneficiaries) decry Congressional efforts to redirect its taxpayer funding to other women health centers, they often insist that the organization provides vital services that have nothing to do with their thriving abortion business or fetal organ harvesting and profiteering.  They vastly overstate women's reliance on Planned Parenthood, and wrongly claim that its clinics do things like offer mammograms (false) and other cancer screening services (declining, and widely available elsewhere).

Moms call Planned Parenthood for "prenatal care," get offered abortions instead.  Democrats and progressives are mobilizing to protect Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, because they claim it helps women in other areas including prenatal care.  Cecil Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, even campaigned for Hillary Clinton on the platform of protecting women's health especially when it comes to prenatal care.  A new investigation by the pro-life group Live Action found that Richards may have been lying about all the services Planned Parenthood provided.

Cecile Richards Makes the Case for Defunding Planned Parenthood.  Celebrities, comedians, and much of the news media are only too willing to provide ostensibly unbiased cover for the institutions and issues that liberals care about.  Democratic activists and politicians are treated with kid gloves on shows watched by millions of Americans, in this case allowing [Cecile] Richards to wield carefully worded messaging to persuade viewers to trust a group as crooked as Planned Parenthood, although most of her points were incorrect or deceptive and can easily be debunked with some basic facts.

"Women's March" Chair Admits Event is Really About Defending Planned Parenthood, Promoting Abortion.  Planned Parenthood is more than just a partner for the upcoming Women's March on Washington.  To begin his Sunday [1/15/2017] segment, MSNBC Richard Lui described the Women's March as an event that "started out as a rallying cry for women to show their solidarity against Trump" before turning to Linda Sarsour, the national co-chair of the Women's March on Washington, for more information. [...] Sarsour began listing the march's most important issues.  "First of all, hands off the Affordable Care Act.  We need our health insurance," she began.  "Hands off Planned Parenthood and our reproductive rights.  Hands off Muslims.  Hands off the undocumented.  Those are really our top messaging lines.  Hands off our Native American sisters and brothers."

The Exorcism of Obamacare From the Body Politic.  The "reproductive rights" mafia will pull out all the stops to prevent [Tom] Price from being confirmed as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Never mind that he would be the first actual physician to lead HHS in nearly a generation, is well-known for his policy expertise, and has the support of the health care industry. [...] Much of this invective has been prompted by Price's vote in favor of legislation to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion factory and purveyor of organs cut from dead infants.  In addition to voting for the bill, Price eloquently explained why:  "These actions cross a moral line beyond comprehension.  The revealing picture is of a supported routine for abortion practices that result in the harvesting and sale of baby parts, some of which are secured in barbaric processes... I voted to end taxpayer funding for the organization responsible."

Amusing, inasmuch as cable channels don't use "airwaves."
MSNBC Host to Planned Parenthood: 'These Airwaves Are Your Airwaves'.  Americans know the liberal media are untrustworthy.  But there's something especially repulsive when they don't even pretend to uphold journalistic integrity.  On Sunday [1/8/2017], MSNBC host Joy Reid invited Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards on her show, AM Joy.  But rather than conducting an interview, Reid turned her show into a Planned Parenthood lovefest, from insinuating that defunding Planned Parenthood would make women die to promising Richards that "these airwaves are your airwaves."

StemExpress, former Planned Parenthood partner, drops lawsuit against pro-life journalists.  A middleman in the market for fetal tissue has dropped its lawsuit against the pro-life journalists who accused it of partnering with Planned Parenthood to profit from the sale of baby body parts from abortions.  StemExpress, which was referred by Congress for criminal investigation last week, dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress on Tuesday, one day before an appellate hearing was set to take place on a motion to strike the complaint.  Charles LiMandri, president of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, which represents the CMP, said the timing of the dismissal is telling.

Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Vendor StemExpress Drops Lawsuit Against David Daleiden.  In a huge victory for the pro-life advocate responsible for uncovering the grisly business of selling body parts of aborted babies, StemExpress has dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden.  Daleiden was responsible for the undercover videos exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the abortion industry selling the body parts of aborted unborn children.  StemExpress was a middleman that would take the body parts from Planned Parenthood and sell them at a much higher cost to scientists and researchers conducting dubious research with them.  After it was exposed, StemExpress filed a lawsuit against the light and attempting to cover up additional video footage and information related to the sales of the body parts.  Today, StemExpress is dropping its lawsuit against The Center for Medical Progress and walking away with nothing.

Paul Ryan indicates GOP will strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood.  Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, indicated Thursday that a provision to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood would be included in legislation that would repeal Obamacare.  "Well, the Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill," Ryan said at his weekly news conference on Capitol Hill.  Republicans wrapped a provision targeting Planned Parenthood funding into their reconciliation bill to dismantle Obamacare last year, but President Obama, of course, quickly vetoed that measure.  In response to Ryan's threat Thursday [1/5/2017], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said Democrats would again fight against the GOP plan.

Planned Parenthood closed more than 300 facilities.  American Life League (ALL) has been tracking the abortion giant for many years.  The pro-life organization has just completed its annual survey of locations for the abortion business to give Americans a better idea of the extent to which Planned Parenthood is shutting is doors across the United States.  ALL Executive Director Jim Sedlak has the numbers to prove Planned Parenthood's descent, noting that bad news for the world's largest abortion provider is good news for pro-life advocates.

Texas moves to cut Planned Parenthood's Medicaid funding.  Texas officials are moving to strip millions of Medicaid dollars from Planned Parenthood in the wake of allegations that the nation's largest abortion provider impermissibly traffics in fetal body parts from abortions.  Stuart Bowen, the inspector general for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, sent a final notice to Planned Parenthood on Tuesday [12/20/2016] informing the group that their Medicaid funding will be cut off in 30 days, more than a year after the governor initiated the process to get Planned Parenthood off of the taxpayer dole.

Obama Approves Rule Prohibiting States From Defunding Planned Parenthood.  Pro-abortion President Barack Obama has finalized a new rule that would essentially prohibit states from defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business and a leading pro-life member of Congress is not happy about it.  The finalized rule from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) prevents states from blocking Title X funding (federal dollars for family planning services) to abortion companies like Planned Parenthood.

An important criminal referral.  One day in June 2014, Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) obtained a 20-week-old fetus at a Planned Parenthood clinic, for which it paid $60.  From that one fetus, ABR sold its brain to a customer for $325; both of its eyes for $325 each ($650 total); a portion of its liver for $325 to a third customer; its thymus for $325 and another portion of the liver for $325 to a forth customer; and its lung for $325 to a fifth customer.  In total, ABR charged its clients $2,275 for a fetus it paid $60 for — which didn't include separate, additional charges for shipping and disease screening.

'11th hour power grab': Obama mandates state funding for Planned Parenthood.  President Obama is delivering a generous parting gift to Planned Parenthood in the form of a rule prohibiting states from divesting millions of dollars from the nation's largest abortion provider.  The final version of the rule, issued by the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday [12/14/2016], requires states to distribute dollars from Title X of the Public Health Service Act without taking into account whether recipient clinics perform abortions.  The edict is set to go into effect Jan. 18, two days before the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump.

Senate committee refers Planned Parenthood for criminal charges.  The Senate Judiciary Committee is recommending criminal charges against Planned Parenthood for allegedly trafficking in fetal body parts from abortions for profit.  In a letter sent to the FBI and the Department of Justice on Tuesday, committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, referred four of Planned Parenthood's largest affiliates, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and three of the abortion provider's business partners for potential prosecution.

Grassley asks FBI, Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood.  The Republican head of the Senate Judiciary Committee is asking federal authorities to consider investigating and prosecuting Planned Parenthood, four of its affiliates and three human tissue companies.  Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to the FBI and the Justice Department on Tuesday that asked them to explore whether the groups have illegally profited from fetal tissue.  Grassley pointed to findings by a special House committee that over the past year has been investigating the supply chain of fetal tissue.  The documents collected by the House panel raise a "reasonable suspicion" of wrongdoing, Grassley wrote.

Macy's Stores Ceases ALL Donations to Planned Parenthood.  The department store giant is the most recent in a list of companies which have ended their support for the barbaric industry.

Money Speaks:  Macy's Halts Funding of Planned Parenthood.  This Christmas, pro-lifers should consider shopping at Macy's.  Because, as it turns out, the giant chain listens to its conservative consumers.  In a Wednesday [11/7/2016] press release, corporate watchdog 2ndVote revealed that Macy's no longer gives or matches donations to Planned Parenthood.  Macy's decision comes after MRC Culture reported in October on 2ndVote's updated list of 37 companies that fund Planned Parenthood.  Thanks to shoppers, that number is now 36.

Planned Parenthood Serves Up Abortion Like Fries.  Abortion is a money-making business for Planned Parenthood.  Just like a sales agent at any store, their "counselors" have a profit motive in convincing women to kill their children.  Reluctance and second guessing are fine with them, as long as they can get you to check the box.

ACLU, Planned Parenthood say Alaska restrictions on second-trimester abortions are unconstitutional.  Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the state of Alaska Wednesday [11/30/2016], accusing it of illegally blocking abortions after the first trimester of pregnancy.  The lawsuit, filed in Anchorage Superior Court, says the Alaska Medical Board has unconstitutionally interfered with a woman's right to abortion by requiring a doctor to consult with a second physician before performing a second-trimester abortion and that a clinic must have an operating room ready for major surgery and be ready to perform a blood transfusion.  The medical board licenses physicians and its regulations have the weight of state law.

Planned Parenthood Wants To Ruin Thanksgiving.  As if we all hadn't gotten our fill of progressive explainers over the past few days, Planned Parenthood has decided to weigh in with a step-by-step guide to discussing the abortion-rights group with your family this Thanksgiving. [...] There is almost no reason on earth why any family should spend Thanksgiving — a time when we're meant to be especially grateful for our many blessings — debating politics, let alone the sordid realities of how Planned Parenthood does business.  But if for some inexplicable reason it happens to come up, it is worth knowing that the truth is a great deal more sordid that the group would have us believe.

Taxpayer-Funded Planned Parenthood Paying People $1600 Per Week to Protest Donald Trump.  Before we point fingers at those who are protesting the results of the most recent election, all of us in the pro-life community must begin with some reflection.  Eight years ago, when abortion-proponent Barack Obama won the White House, the pregnancy help community took our grievances to the streets.  We smashed windows.  We stopped traffic.  We sought to overturn the results.  Ummm, no.  We did not.  In the days after the 2008 elections, we went back to work to serve those who needed us most.  We had no time for "taking it to the streets" (with all due respect to the 1976 song by Michael McDonald and the Doobie Brothers).  Such is not the case for Planned Parenthood today.  Apparently, the abortion giant has plenty of time on its hands, and plenty of money.

Is Planned Parenthood affiliate fueling anti-Trump protests?  The Craigslist ads read:  "STOP TRUMP — up to $1500/week.  Hiring immediately!  Call Today Start tomorrow!  $15-$18 hourly rate + bonus + overtime up to 77 hours per week!"  They were placed by a Planned Parenthood affiliate in major cities like Boston, Denver, Columbus, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh right before the election to defeat the candidacy of Donald Trump.  However, most of them are still active on Craigslist, fueling questions about whether the group is now among those feeding the post-election anti-Trump protests across the country.  Many of the ads have Planned Parenthood Action, a PAC, emblazoned across the top and all of them list phone numbers belonging to the Community Outreach Group, a for-profit organization formed by Planned Parenthood as "a vendor of large-scale advocacy."  Protesting is among the tasks listed on its website.

Americans Defeat Planned Parenthood's Campaign to Elect a Pro-Abortion President.  In what was likely the most hotly contested presidential election in history, President Elect Donald Trump took the win Wednesday morning, securing the vote for the nation's top public office.  The pro-life movement pushed back against Planned Parenthood's $30 million campaign to elect a pro-abortion president and Congress, voting into office pro-life senators and representatives to Capitol Hill.  The abortion lobby's extreme push for unregulated abortions through all nine months of pregnancy and forced taxpayer funding for abortion also lost at the polls.  Live Action President Lila Rose notes that the 2016 presidential election is a key moment in securing a pro-life future for America.  She urges pro-lifers to hold Trump to the promises he made during his campaign.

Planned Parenthood CEO Issues Desperate Email After Clinton Defeat, "We're Devastated and Angry".  The Planned Parenthood abortion business this morning issued a desperate email to abortion advocates that support it following last night's surprise defeat of pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  The abortion company was forced to tell its supporters that it plans to stay open and will not be closing down as long as they continue providing financial support for it.  Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards admitted that the abortion giant has devastated and angry after last night's surprise election.  She said she would understand it if abortion advocates wanted to just stay in bed today and ignore the reality of their massive defeat.

Planned Parenthood at 100: Growing the abortion business and lawlessness.  On Planned Parenthood's 100-year anniversary, October 15, tens of millions of Americans have now seen the shocking undercover video footage of the biggest abortion provider's top-level leadership — medical directors, national program directors, even the Senior Director of Medical Services — callously negotiating the harvesting and sale of aborted fetal body parts.  Even Planned Parenthood's political allies recognize that there is nothing defensible about Planned Parenthood's illicit trade in tiny baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains.  The board of George Soros' Open Society Foundation said it best when they observed that the videos of senior leadership's participation in fetal trafficking have "upended" Planned Parenthood, and that "the long-term consequences involve the substantial eroding of Planned Parenthood's credibility and reputation."

Planned Parenthood Partners Charged for Illegal Body Part Profits.  Two of Planned Parenthood's top partners have been charged with raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal profits derived from the sale of tissue derived from aborted fetuses.  The Orange County District Attorney's office filed suit against DV Biologics and its sister company Da Vinci Biosciences for marking up prices and shipping fees on the sale of cells derived from "heart, lungs, kidneys, brains, intestines, skeletal muscles and bones of the aborted fetus donations."  "DV Biologics, LLC, and DaVinci Biosciences, LLC obtained aborted fetus donations from Planned Parenthood and turned those donations into a profit-driven business," the complaint filed in state superior court says.  "Defendants set prices for fetal 'products' arbitrarily, without any attempt to comply with the law, in an effort to maximize their profits and sales."  Neither DV Biologics, nor Planned Parenthood returned request for comment.

Planned Parenthood is Back with a Vengeance.  Planned Parenthood is back in the news.  Hooray!  They took a well-deserved hit after the videos emerged of just what an awful place it is and how awful some of the people who run these places are.  Unfortunately not enough of a hit, as they are still in business.  But now, with eugenist-loving Hillary Clinton running for president, Planned Parenthood is preparing its triumphant comeback.  Not just to defend its vile practice, but actually promote it as part of Hillary's campaign.

16 Times Democrats Tried To Prosecute Their Opponents.  [#1] David Daleiden:  After publishing undercover footage of Planned Parenthood harvesting organs from the bodies of aborted babies and discussing agreements to sell those baby organs, Daleiden became public enemy number one for Democrats.  A Texas district attorney tried to charge Daleiden and his investigative partner for organ trafficking, a misdemeanor, and tampering with a government record, a felony.  From the beginning, the case against Daleiden showed obvious conflicts of interest.  As The Federalist reported, "the district attorney who indicted Daleiden has received more than $25,000 in campaign contributions from the defense attorney for abortionist Douglas Karpen, who has been described as the Kermit Gosnell of Texas."  California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who had Daleiden's home raided after the videos emerged, had financial ties with Planned Parenthood.

Inside Planned Parenthood's $30 Million Ground War to Stop Trump-Pence.  Planned Parenthood is mounting one of the largest door-to-door field campaigns of the 2016 election, working to persuade millions of voters to defeat the extremist, anti-abortion ticket of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.  Its army of hundreds of paid staff and thousands of volunteers could tip the balance in as many as half-a-dozen swing states, where the Trump campaign barely counts field offices, much less a sophisticated ground game.  Aiming to reach three million voters across six states, the $30 million campaign has twice the budget of Planned Parenthood's largest previous field effort, in 2012.  "Access to safe and legal abortion and access to reproductive health care is on the ballot this year like never before," Deirdre Schifeling, executive director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, tells Rolling Stone.

Planned Parenthood Says Dead Babies Are Good For Business And The Economy, And They're Very Wrong.  It never ceases to amaze me how abortion advocates will pull out all the stops to paint abortion as this grand venture that makes the world a better place.  Proponents have made it sound as if in the event abortion were made illegal, then women would be put into chains, sold into slavery, and treated like third class citizens.  In other words, it would be like an Islamic state, but they can't bring themselves to say that.  The whole point of the wailing and gnashing of the teeth is that if women lost access to abortion, then women aren't truly free.  They consider it control over their bodies.  The pattern is that it completely focuses on them, and not the baby they're murdering.  Ya know, the other body they're asserting control over without any sense of irony.  But now they've gone a step further.

Democratic Resolution Would Honor Planned Parenthood as 'Essential Thread in Fabric of Society'.  Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) introduced a resolution last week to "recognize the importance of Planned Parenthood's contributions to women's health care and reproductive rights in America over the last 100 years."  The resolution voiced strong support for the nation's largest abortion provider, declaring that "the organization remains an essential thread in the fabric of society, and it will be key in the next century to assisting millions of women, men, and young people in accessing the health care they need and deserve, no matter who they are or where they live."

The Editor says...
Ri-i-i-ight.  Unless they're black and live in a uterus.

Planned Parenthood lying about abortions.  In the debate surrounding the funding of Planned Parenthood, those who defend the abortion provider love to cite the statistic that abortions only make up 3% of the services offered.  It's a disgusting lie, used to manipulate the public into believing Planned Parenthood is a necessity for women's health.  In reality, Planned Parenthood is responsible for a third of our nation's abortions — mass murder being funding by your tax dollars.  And they're trying to cover it up.

Planned Parenthood is Working Hand in Hand With China's Population Control Officials.  China's One Child Policy turns 36 this week (September 25).  Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, stated, "The One Child Policy has been responsible for hundreds of millions of forced abortions and sterilizations and untold human suffering.  While posturing as a champion of choice, International Planned Parenthood has been working hand in hand with the population control program in China, almost since its inception.  Forced abortion is not a choice.  Women's Rights Without Frontiers calls for a full-scale, international investigation of International Planned Parenthood to determine the exact nature of its operations in China.  Transparency is demanded by the fact that IPPF receives taxpayer dollars from the United States and other nations as well.  I believe it is impossible to work so closely with the Chinese Communist Party's forced abortion machine without being complicit in its atrocities.  This is especially the case when this year we learned that the number of abortions in China is not 13 million, but a staggering 23 million a year."

Obama's Parting Gift to Planned Parenthood.  What do you give to a cash-flush abortion business and political ally that has everything?  More taxpayer dollars, of course.  In his remaining few months in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama has found a new way to direct more taxpayer money to his friends at Planned Parenthood.  The Department of Health and Human Services has announced a new regulation that would force states to give federal family planning funds to Planned Parenthood and other abortionists.  The move could mean millions more in taxpayer dollars for the nation's abortion market leader at the expense of women's health.

Obama Administration's Latest Overreach Sides with Planned Parenthood.  The Obama Administration continues its abrasive Executive overreach to push its agenda, bypassing Congressional approval and in direct opposition to the will of the American people.  In its latest move, the Obama bureaucracy is trying to push through a new regulation to prevent state governments from redirecting Title X funds away from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to community health centers and other health care providers that provide more comprehensive health care for women and family members in need.

New Obama Rule Would Ban States From Defunding Planned Parenthood.  The Obama administration is seeking to ban states from defunding Planned Parenthood by quietly implementing a new Title X rule that would limit states' ability to direct federal funds.  The proposed Health and Human Services rule would ban states from using criteria not based on ability to provide services when determining which family planning centers get federal funding.  Several states stripped Planned Parenthood of these federal funds in the last year after a series of undercover videos exposed the non-profit's trade in aborted fetus parts, and 13 states have now stripped the funds since 2011.

When abortion funding is a fundamental right, but religious liberty is not.  The courts of Sodom and Gomorrah have struck again.  On Friday [8/12/2016], just as I was finishing my article concerning the distortion of religious liberty and property rights in America, the federal judiciary illustrated my point once again.  In two separate decisions in different parts of the country — when juxtaposed to one another — the federal judiciary demonstrated that, in their estimation, the Constitution is unconstitutional.  On Friday, Judge Michael R. Barrett, a federal judge for the Western Division of the Southern District of Ohio, blocked the state's new law cutting off state funding to Planned Parenthood.  This Bush appointee, who once served as chair of the Hamilton County Republican Party, said that the injunction was necessary because otherwise the abortion-provider "will suffer a continuing irreparable injury for which there is no adequate remedy at law."

Planned Parenthood Piously Extols Freedom From Violence:.  No wonder both presidential candidates are such big supporters of Planned Parenthood. [...] Actually, when you attack a police officer and attempt to take his gun like Michael Brown did, you have explicitly waived any expectation to be free from violence.  Being torn to pieces inside your mother's womb comes as more of a surprise.

Only GOP Congressman Supporting Hillary Took Thousands From Planned Parenthood.  Republican New York Rep.  Richard Hanna, who announced Tuesday he would be breaking ranks this November and voting for Hillary Clinton, has a lengthy history of siding against his party and standing with with one of Clinton's staunchest allies — Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood donated thousands of dollars to Hanna's campaigns in 2012 — when he was one of three Republicans in Congress to accept money from the organization — and in 2014, when he was the only Republican in Congress funded by Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Launches Voter Registration Campaign.  Planned Parenthood will begin a nonpartisan campaign to register voters at its clinics, on college campuses and online to help marginalized populations participate more in this election cycle, the women's health provider announced to the Huffington Post Friday [8/5/2016].  The voter registration campaign titled "My Vote, My Voice" will have volunteers in 45 states set up tables outside of Planned Parenthood clinics and other spots in communities to educate people about their state's voter ID laws while helping them register to vote.  Two weeks before the general election, volunteers will also remind people to vote.

Catholic Priest to Planned Parenthood:  History 'Will Lump' You With 'Slave Traders, the Nazis, the Communists'.  "We have no doubt that in 20 or 50 or 100 years, other societies and other civilizations will look back and will lump your organization in with the slave traders, the Nazis, the communists, all those groups that have always sought to oppress people," said Fr. John Hollowell, a Catholic priest of the archdiocese of Indianapolis, in a video message to Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.  Hollowell uploaded the video to YouTube in February 2012, when Richards called for women to make videos with the tagline 'I Have a Say,' explaining why birth control is important to them.  The video has garnered 148,254 views, far more than Richards' video, which has pulled in 37,573 views.  The Catholic site Roman Catholic Man recently re-posted the video.  [Video clip]

Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood Want Free Abortions on Babies After 20 Weeks.  During the past eight years, President Barack Obama's pro-abortion position has been devastating to unborn babies and the Americans who fight to protect their rights.  But the abortion climate in America could get even worse if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru predicted.  "During the Obama years, liberalism became more aggressive in its support of abortion.  Hillary Clinton's campaign reflects this new attitude," Ponnuru wrote.  "If she is elected, her administration is likely to reach a new extreme in the depth of its commitment to keeping abortion legal, expanding subsidies for it, and insulating these policies from democratic review."  Ponnuru pointed out that Clinton's radical abortion position is similar to Obama's.  She has said in various interviews that an unborn child just hours before birth should have no Constitutional rights.  In February, Clinton defended the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure.  Clinton also said she wants to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for abortions.

Undercover Filmmaker Who Exposed Planned Parenthood Calls His Case a 'Huge Win' for Journalists.  On Tuesday [7/26/2016], the Harris County district attorney's office dismissed all charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.  The duo worked undercover to produce a series of videos alleging Planned Parenthood's involvement in the sale of unborn baby body parts.  Federal law makes it illegal to sell human fetal tissue for a profit.  Daleiden, project lead at the Center for Medical Progress, and Merritt were indicted by the Houston-based grand jury in January for using false government identification during their undercover investigation.  Daleiden was also indicted for "intentionally and knowingly" offering to buy human organs.  The two faced up to 20 years in prison, LifeSiteNews reported.

Charges dismissed against Planned Parenthood videographers.  The Harris County District Attorney's office on Tuesday dismissed all charges against anti-abortion activists who secretly videotaped Planned Parenthood officials in Houston.  David Robert Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were charged with tampering with a governmental record, for using a fake identification to gain access to the facility.  In a surprise move before a hearing on the legitimacy of the indictment, prosecutors dismissed the charges.

All Charges Dropped Against Activists Behind Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos.  All charges have been dismissed against the pro-life activists indicted in Texas for their involvement in the making of undercover videos about Planned Parenthood.  The Houston Chronicle reports the Harris County District Attorney's Office has dismissed all charges against the two activist filmmakers, David Daleiden, 27, and Sandra Merritt, 63.  As LawNewz.com reported in January, a grand jury empaneled to investigate misconduct by officials at Planned Parenthood instead decided to flip the script, returning indictments against Daleiden and Merritt.  Both were charged with second degree felony tampering with a governmental record for allegedly using fake identification cards to hide their real identities when making the videos.  Daleiden was also charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly attempting to purchase human organs.

Charges dismissed against Planned Parenthood videographers.  The Harris County District Attorney's office on Tuesday [7/26/2016] dismissed all charges against anti-abortion activists who secretly videotaped Planned Parenthood officials in Houston.  David Robert Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were charged with tampering with a governmental record, for using a fake identification to gain access to the facility.  In a surprise move before a hearing on the legitimacy of the indictment, prosecutors dismissed the charges.  Deleiden and his attorneys claimed victory for the anti-abortion movement, saying they were satisfied with the decision.

D.A. Dismisses All Bogus Charges Against David Daleiden for Exposing Planned Parenthood.  On the night the head of the Planned Parenthood abortion company is slated to speak to the Democratic National Convention, the man behind the undercover videos has been vindicated.  Again.  As LifeNews reported last month, a Harris County, Texas judge dismissed the bogus misdemeanor charge against David Daleiden for allegedly trying to buy body parts from the Planned Parenthood abortion business he was exposing for selling them as a part of the Center for Medical Progress' undercover investigation.  Today [7/26/2016], Harris County District Attorney's office on Tuesday dismissed all charges against Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the pro-life adovcate [sic] who worked with him on the groundbreaking videos.

The Planned Parenthood Investigation:  One Year Later.  In January, President Obama vetoed a bill that would have forbidden taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood.  But the House Select Investigative Panel — formed last October in response to CMP's videos — has been conducting extensive investigations into the organization's practices.  Yesterday, the panel released an interim report confirming, with extensive evidence, the CMP video footage, and finding that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates have broken several federal laws — including the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993, a federal statute prohibiting the acquisition, reception, or transfer of fetal tissue for monetary considerations.  The panel report provides nearly incontrovertible proof that the organization consistently engaged in this very type of fetal-tissue trafficking.

Planned Parenthood Caught Engaging in $28 Million in Medicaid Fraud Loses Bid to Stop Lawsuit.  Just one Planned Parenthood affiliate in Iowa allegedly committed $28 million in medicaid fraud.  And now a federal appeals court has ruled that it can't stop the lawsuit a former Planned Parenthood clinic director filed against it.  Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Sue Thayer filed the lawsuit against the abortion giant's Iowa affiliate accusing it of submitting "repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements" to Medicaid and failing to meet acceptable standards of medical practice.  Alliance Defending Freedom filed the suit for Thayer in March 2011.  The lawsuit claims that Planned Parenthood's Iowa affiliate submitted "repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements" to Medicaid and failed to meet acceptable standards of medical practice.

Planned Parenthood spending millions to elect Democrats.  Planned Parenthood, who receives more than $500 million in funds from the American taxpayer every year, is engaged in a highly partisan effort to elect Democrats to office — including Hillary Clinton.  How do they get away with it?  There's a loophole in the campaign finance laws that allows Planned Parenthood to create a separate entity to collect donations and distribute cash and services to candidates.  The PPFA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, while Planned Parenthood Action is a 501(c)(4) advocacy group.  They keep separate books and are not allowed by law to coordinate action.  But does anyone really believe that the Planned Parenthood Action Fund doesn't do the bidding of Planned Parenthood, the non-profit?

Key charge dropped against pro-life activist in Planned Parenthood sting.  A Texas judge on Monday [6/13/2016] tossed out a key charge against the pro-life activist whose undercover video rocked Planned Parenthood.  A misdemeanor charge of purchase and sale of human organs was dropped in the case against David Daleiden, founder of Center for Medical Progress, apparently due to a technicality in the Harris County prosecutor's indictment.  The move leaves Daleiden still facing a felony charge of tampering with a government ID.  "[The dismissal] of trafficking human organs is the latest confirmation that the indictments from a runaway grand jury in Houston were a politically-motivated sham all along," read a statement posted on CMP's website.

Hillary Clinton:  My Presidential Campaign 'Belongs to' Abortionists and Planned Parenthood.  Hillary Clinton said her historic presidential campaign "belongs to" Planned Parenthood "staff" and abortionists.  "I'm grateful to the entire Planned Parenthood family.  You made this campaign your own," the Democratic presidential nominee said at a speech before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in Washington, D.C., on Friday [6/10/2016].  After specifically referencing the 1,000 volunteers who showed up for a Planned Parenthood training event in Pittsburgh last month, she continued.  "It belongs to the staff, the donors, and to the providers," she said.

Black Planned Parenthood Activists Blame Orlando Terror Attack on 'Toxic Masculinity'.  Planned Parenthood Black Community is blaming "toxic masculinity" for the horrific shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  The black community of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund — which says it works to "protect and advance the sexual and reproductive rights of African Americans" — tweeted out that the Orlando massacre, committed by jihadist Omar Mateen, was caused by "toxic masculinity" and "a global culture of imperialist homophobia."

'Appalling': Rep seeks HHS probe as emails shed light on abortion clinic harvesting.  A fresh trove of documents released by a House panel probing abortion clinics and companies trading in body parts shows the extent of their fetal tissue harvesting operation — and what the committee's chairwoman alleges are violations of the law.  Rep.  Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., head of the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, is now making a fresh request for a federal probe.  "I believe the investigation will move forward because this is so appalling," she told FoxNews.com.  One of the more striking exchanges was contained in a set of January 2015 emails.  When a customer inquired with company StemExpress about the availability of aborted tissue, an employee promptly emailed back seemingly while an abortion was under way:  "There is one case currently in the room, I will let you know how the limbs and calvarium [skull] look to see if you are able to take them in about fifteen minutes."

Clinton promises Planned Parenthood to prioritize abortion rights.  Hillary Clinton promised to stand by Planned Parenthood in a speech to activists from the group in Washington, D.C. on Friday [6/10/2016].  In her speech Friday, she thanked the non-profit women's health group for their support in the primary and highlighted her staunch support for abortion rights.  The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee warned the crowd that if elected president, her opponent Donald Trump would weaken women's rights.

If You Share Undercover Exposés of Planned Parenthood, You Could End Up in a California Jail.  The California legislature is considering a bill that would make it impossible to expose Planned Parenthood with recordings unless they give their permission, but it is even worse than that.  Anyone who publishes, shares, emails the recordings would also be held liable for criminal prosecution.  The bill moved to the State Senate last week.  This is a serious effort.  Abortion mills are the latest protected class.

Congressional Investigation:  Planned Parenthood Broke HIPAA Law to Sell Aborted Baby Parts.  New evidence has surfaced that the company StemExpress and a number of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics shared patients' private health information potentially in violation of the law while harvesting aborted baby body parts.  U.S. Rep.  Marsha Blackburn said Wednesday [6/1/2016] that the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives discovered evidence that StemExpress and the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics appear to have violated the HIPAA privacy rule and Institutional Review Board regulations.  There also is evidence that they appear to have pressured women into consenting to donate their aborted babies' body parts, Blackburn said.

House investigation:  Planned Parenthood broke federal law in fetal body parts trafficking.  The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives is calling for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate whether several Planned Parenthood abortion clinics violated federal privacy law.  The Panel released new evidence Wednesday [6/1/2016] purportedly showing abortion clinics disclosing confidential medical information about patients in order to facilitate the sale of fetal body parts to procurement firm StemExpress.  Panel Chairwoman Marsha Blackburn sent a letter to HHS on Wednesday asking the agency to review the evidence and determine whether the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act was violated.

California moves to criminalize undercover filming at Planned Parenthood.  In the wake of an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's alleged fetal trafficking operation, the California state legislature is considering a bill that would criminalize publishing secretly recorded video footage of "health care providers."  AB 1671, which has been backed by Planned Parenthood, would criminalize the publication of confidential interactions with state-licensed medical personnel, including abortionists and clinician staff, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine per violation.

Did the Houston DA's Office Abuse Its Power to Get Daleiden Indictment?  Did the Houston District Attorney's Office abuse its grand-jury subpoena power in order to help Planned Parenthood not only escape an indictment, but also turn the tables on the two undercover videographers who brought to light the abortion giant's fetal-tissue practice?  According to attorneys representing Center for Medical Progress undercover-video investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, Houston Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell engaged in prosecutorial misconduct by working closely with Josh Schaffer, legal counsel for Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast, which was the target of the grand-jury investigation that resulted instead in the indictments of the pro-life advocates.

Exclusive: Planned Parenthood Lawyer Denies Collusion, Admits DA Gave Him Video.  The lawyer for Planned Parenthood who has been accused of colluding with the Harris County DA against the Planned Parenthood undercover videographer, signed an affidavit to deny this charge, but admits that a prosecutor gave him a copy of the undercover video.  As reported on April 14, Jared Woodfill, a lawyer for undercover videographer David Daleiden told Breitbart Texas, "We have clear evidence that the DA is colluding with Planned Parenthood."  The District Attorney in Harris County, Texas, is Devon Anderson.

Victims sue Planned Parenthood over Colorado shooting.  Two victims of last year's shooting at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs have filed a lawsuit against the group, claiming it should have done more to prevent the "foreseeable" incident.  Attorneys filed a lawsuit on Friday on behalf of Samantha Wagner, who survived a bullet to the arm and lost her friend in the shooting, and Ashley Stewart, who lost her husband in the shooting.

Planned Parenthood helping transgender patients with sex changes.  Planned Parenthood has found a new niche that could prove nearly as controversial as providing abortions: helping transgendered people through the sex-change process.  In the wake of last summer's undercover videos that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials selling baby body parts for money — which is illegal — legislators in several states have looked for ways to deny funding to the women's health giant.  While Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing, they have stopped accepting reimbursements for providing fetal parts to researchers.  However, the gender reassignment process may enable the organization to make up the lost cash by other means.

Planned Parenthood Closes Iowa Abortion Clinic Because It Couldn't Get Enough Customers.  Pro-lifers made a huge impact outside of the Dubuque, Iowa Planned Parenthood abortion facility, encouraging more than 20 mothers to choose life for their unborn babies.  Now the abortion facility is closing for good, saying it does not have enough business to keep operating, according to KWWL 7 News.  The Planned Parenthood closed on Thursday [4/28/2016] after operating at that location for eight years, the report states.

Planned Parenthood Email Shows Cruz Terrifies Them.  There's a reason that the Pro-Life movement hasn't seen very much action at the national level.  It doesn't matter whether a Republican or Democrat sits in the White House.  It doesn't matter which party controls Congress.  The only thing that can shake things up and shift the power in the battle against abortion and Planned Parenthood is a true conservative in the Oval Office.  That person is Ted Cruz.

Chuck Todd Tells Ted Cruz Planned Parenthood Scandal 'Made Up'.  During an MSNBC town hall event with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Thursday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd dismissed the Texas Senator's condemnation of Planned Parenthood by insisting that scandal surrounding the abortion provider was "made up."  Cruz observed:  "You know, a few months ago, we had this series of videos that were horrifying.  I will say virtually none of the network news would show the videos on air.  These videos showed Planned Parenthood officials essentially admitting to what appeared to be a pattern of federal felonies."

California Department Of Justice Raids David Daleiden's Home.  The California Department of Justice raided the home of David Daleiden, the pro-life journalist behind the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood's harvesting and sale of human organs from aborted children.  Daleiden explained in a Facebook post that authorities with the California Department of Justice raided his home Tuesday afternoon and seized all video footage of Planned Parenthood employees' involvement in selling organs from aborted babies — including damning footage which has yet to be released.  Daleiden noted that the California Department of Justice serves under the authority of California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who has benefited politically from Planned Parenthood: [...]

Planned Parenthood: David Daleiden Speaks out on Home Raid.  Undercover investigator David Daleiden's home in California was raided Tuesday [4/5/2016] by officials under the office of California Attorney General Kamala Harris.  Harris has been investigating Daleiden for months, after his video exposé of Planned Parenthood's alleged baby-parts scheme.  His videos allegedly showed Planned Parenthood personnel actively negotiating the sale of the livers, lungs, hearts and other organs of aborted unborn children.

Abortion Activist Claims Planned Parenthood Videos Caused Raid At His Home.  An anti-abortion activist who made undercover videos at Planned Parenthood clinics said in a social media posting that California Department of Justice agents raided his home Tuesday [4/5/2016].

Planned Parenthood Activist Slams Hillary for Accidentally Calling Unborn Baby a "Person".  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 [4/3/2016] 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 an 'unborn child,'" according to Newsmax.

California law enforcement officers seize Planned Parenthood videos, activist says.  Agents from the California Department of Justice raided the home of an indicted anti-abortion activist and seized undercover videos allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials arranging to illegally sell fetal tissue for profit, the activist said late Tuesday [4/5/2016].  David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, which released the videos, said in a Facebook post that agents had "seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood's criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information."  Daleiden added that the agents left behind documents that he contends implicate Planned Parenthood in illegal behavior related to the handling of fetal tissue.

Planned Parenthood president: It's important to 'really humanize' abortion.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards on Wednesday praised an episode of ABC's "Scandal," in which the main character terminates a pregnancy, for its effort to "really humanize" abortion.

"It really has to do with bodily autonomy when it comes down to it," Ms.  Richards told Interview Magazine.

"I do think that was such a powerful episode."

Gov. Scott Signs Bill Making Florida 12th State to Defund Planned Parenthood.  Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill Friday [3/25/2016] that defunds his state's abortion clinics — including those run by Planned Parenthood — making Florida the 12th state to block state taxpayer dollars from going to the nation's largest abortion provider. [...] The new law, which goes into effect on July 1, prohibits any state funding to groups that own, operate or are affiliated with licensed abortion facilities.  Florida law currently allows state funding for non-abortion services.

Catholic Georgetown Defends Inviting Planned Parenthood CEO Responsible For More Deaths Than Pol Pot.  A few years ago the Daily Mail put together a list of the 36 most murderous dictators of the 20th century ordered by the number of deaths tied to their rule.  These men didn't personally go out and murder thousands, and even millions of people, but they were ultimately in charge of those who did carry out mass murder.  So they are credited with the death tolls of their regimes.  Using the same logic, why don't we ever hear that Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) President Cecile Richards is responsible for over 2.8 million deaths when she appears on television or is quoted in the press?  That figure is according to PPFA's own records of "abortion services" (babies killed) disclosed in their annual reports since 2006, when Richards took the helm at Planned Parenthood.  That's more attributed deaths than Communist Cambodian dictator Pol Pot and 29 other dictators on Daily Mail's list.  But the staggering statistic is never discussed.

The Planned Parenthood primary.  At the center of the debate over abortion, there is a battle over the legitimacy and public funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization that performs more abortions than any other group — about one every two minutes.  The battle over Planned Parenthood is a proxy for the fight over abortion and the culture wars generally. [...] Unsurprisingly, Hillary Clinton has offered full-throated support for the abortion giant, and in turn has received the Planned Parenthood Action Fund's first-ever primary endorsement.

Clinton Campaign Writes Checks to Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions annually and generates 40 percent of its annual revenues through the government.  The billion-dollar organization receives about $500 million from taxpayers each year through Medicaid funds and other grants.  It received a large funding bonus from foreign policy agencies overseen by Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state, collecting more than $100 million for overseas services to the USAID.  Planned Parenthood has been especially active during this campaign season.  In January it made the unprecedented decision to endorse Clinton in the Democratic primary.

Did Trump Bankroll Planned Parenthood Abortionists?  After it was revealed this summer that Planned Parenthood was selling the organs and body parts of aborted human beings to biotech companies, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure if the organization should lose its federal funding.  He even went out of his way to praise Planned Parenthood's good work.  Meet the Press host Chuck Todd found Trump's stance interesting, so he asked Trump if he had ever been a Planned Parenthood donor.  "It's possible," Trump replied.

40 Reasons Not To Vote For Donald Trump.  [#19] Trump loves Planned Parenthood:  Although he claims to be pro-life, Donald Trump has repeatedly praised the baby-killing, baby-part-selling butchers at Planned Parenthood.  After being criticized harshly for refusing to cut off funding for the organization, Trump now mixes praise of the organization with unbelievable claims that he will cut off its funding.  Even Planned Parenthood doesn't believe Trump will hurt them because the organization's CEO Cecile Richards said she appreciated Trump's "kind words."  [#20]  Trump can't be trusted to pick a Supreme Court Justice:  A non-conservative who has kind words for Planned Parenthood and who thought his radical, pro-abortion sister would make a great justice if she wasn't related to him is not someone you want picking a replacement for Antonin Scalia.

Trump Peddles Bogus Statistic to Defend Planned Parenthood.  After undercover videos released in July showed that Planned Parenthood was involved in the trafficking of aborted baby body parts, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure if the Planned Parenthood should lose all of its federal funding.  He later shifted, saying:  "I wouldn't do any funding as long as they are performing abortions."  Trump has stuck to that line, but he has also offered a lot of aid and comfort to Planned Parenthood by arguing it does "wonderful things."  At Thursday night's [2/25/2016] debate, Trump said that "millions and millions of women — cervical cancer, breast cancer — are helped by Planned Parenthood."  Trump did not mention the fact that community health centers could easily provide non-abortion services to those women and that Planned Parenthood has been caught falsely claiming that it performs mammograms.  Trump went on to say that he would defund Planned Parenthood "because of the abortion factor, which they say is 3 percent.  I don't know what percentage it is.  They say it's 3 percent."  If Trump took the time to Google that statistic before repeating it on national television, he would have learned that it is wildly misleading.

Planned Parenthood Pres.: ObamaCare is Giving 55 Million Women Free Birth Control.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told a crowd of Hillary Clinton supporters, "as a result of the long, hard fight for the Affordable Care Act, 55 million women in America are getting birth control — and no co-pay."

U.S. judge grants injunction against anti-abortion activists.  A U.S. judge on Friday [2/5/2016] granted a preliminary injunction stopping the distribution of surreptitious videos taken by anti-abortion activists who alleged Planned Parenthood staff discussed the illegal sale of aborted fetal tissue.  The National Abortion Federation (NAF), a nonprofit representing abortion providers, accused the Center for Medical Progress and its founder, David Daleiden, in a lawsuit last year of illegally infiltrating and recording its private meetings.

Activist behind Planned Parenthood videos surrenders to authorities.  David Daleiden, one of two anti-abortion activists indicted after the release of a series of undercover videos purporting to document Planned Parenthood's sale of fetal organs, turned himself in to Texas authorities on Thursday morning [2/4/2016].  Daleiden told reporters after posting a $3,000 bond at the Harris County courthouse that he is grateful for the backing of his supporters. [...] Daleiden and a group of abortion opponents were also slated to deliver more than 100,000 signatures to the district attorney calling for the charges against Daleiden and parter Sandra Merritt to be dropped.

Missouri House committees release report on Planned Parenthood investigation.  After months of jointly investigating Planned Parenthood operations in the state, two Missouri House committees released a report Wednesday [1/27/2016] calling for new regulation of abortion facilities and increased legislative oversight of abortion providers in Missouri.

Look who's cheering the jailing of journalists.  You know the crack about how a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich?  Well, feature the hoagie that's been handed up in Houston, where a runaway grand jury has just indicted two anti-abortion activists for going undercover against Planned Parenthood.  Supposedly the prosecutor was going to be investigating Planned Parenthood, but the grand jury ended up indicting the investigators.  Now two young idealists could land in the big house for 20 years.  This for the felony of "tampering with governmental records," as The New York Times put it, "probably connected to their alleged use of fake driver's licenses to get into a Planned Parenthood office."

Pro-Lifers Demand Special Prosecutor as Planned Parenthood Rep Works for D.A. Who Indicted Daleiden.  The Texas grand jury indicted David Daleiden and another pro-life activist, Sandra Merritt, behind the videos.  Instead of prosecuting Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts, Daleiden was indicted for buying them.  Daleiden and Merritt were charged with one felony related to tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to buying human tissue.  The felony charge was in reference to the use of a fake ID.  If convicted, Daleiden faces 20 years in prison while Planned Parenthood officials face no legal consequences for their actions.  But Anderson is under criticism over the fact that a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney's office serves on the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood and Anderson also failed to prosecute an abortionist known as the Kermit Gosnell of Houston who snipped babies' necks like Gosnell did.  That criticism is leading to calls for a special prosecutor to be appointed.

Justice For the Unborn Proves Elusive in Houston.  Yesterday [1/25/2016] a grand jury in Houston, TX announced that it would not seek charges against Planned Parenthood and would rather indict the makers of a series of investigative films that allegedly show the abortion giant participating in an illicit fetal tissue trade.

Planned Parenthood indictment: Punishing the pursuer instead of the perp.  On Monday [1/25/2016], a grand jury in Houston indicted two journalists who made the explosive undercover videos that feature Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted babies' body parts while sipping wine in a restaurant.  A felony charge of tampering with a government record was filed against Center for Medical Progress(CMP) founder David Daleiden and CMP employee Sandra Merritt.  Mr. Daleiden also was charged with soliciting the purchase of human organs — as if he really intended to buy them.  The grand jury was initially formed to probe whether a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic was illegally selling unborn babies' body parts.  Instead, it indicted the people behind the sting.

The Editor asks...
Who's the more heinous criminal — the person inquiring about purchasing body parts under false pretenses, with no intention to make such a purchase, or the person who acts as a broker for those who dismember and dissect little babies to make those parts available?  Those of you who attended public schools before 1970 may recall the story of the Boston Tea Party of May 10, 1773, in which a group of tax protesters engaged in identity theft -- disguising themselves as Indians -- in order to get aboard three ships and toss hundreds of chests of British tea into Boston harbor, as a matter of principle.  They had to disguise themselves to accomplish this act, which was one of the origins of the Revolutionary War, i.e., the formation of this country.  Concealing their identity was a very minor issue in comparison to the wholesale destruction of heavily-taxed property.  History now repeats itself:  The presentation of fake ID to the Planned Parenthood people, in order to engage them in candid conversation, is practically nothing, compared to the ghoulish harvesting of organs for quick sale.

In Houston, a Dubious Indictment.  When David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, launched his now-famous investigation of potential organ trafficking at Planned Parenthood, he had to know that his work would place him within the Left's crosshairs.  Planned Parenthood, after all, isn't merely the nation's largest abortion provider, it's the centerpiece of the Left's efforts to normalize the killing of unborn children as merely one aspect of "reproductive health care."  It receives hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding, President Obama has asked God's blessings on the organization, and his administration defends it so fiercely that he once pledged to shut down the government rather than permit Congress to cut its public subsidies.

Texas prosecutor with Planned Parenthood link fuels bias charges over pro-life indictments.  Pro-life groups cried foul over Monday's [1/25/2016] criminal indictments against two Center for Medical Progress investigators because a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney's office is also a Planned Parenthood board member.  Lila Rose, founder of the pro-life group Live Action, called for a special prosecutor to review the Texas grand jury investigation into Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.

Five Things The Liberal Media Won't Tell You About The CMP Indictment.  [#2] One of the prosecutors sits on Planned Parenthood's board of directors.  One of the prosecutors for the Harris County District Attorney's office that investigated Planned Parenthood revealed last year she sits on the board of directors of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. [...] [#3] David Daleiden is not being indicted for doctoring the videos.  Daleiden was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record because he allegedly used a fake California drivers license with the intent to defraud Planned Parenthood, and on a misdemeanor charge of attempting to purchase human organs.

Planned Parenthood cleared, but 2 indicted over videos.  A grand jury convened to investigate whether a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic had sold the organs of aborted fetuses on Monday [1/25/2016] cleared the clinic and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations, surprising the officials who called for the probe and delighting supporters of the women's health organization.

Pair behind Planned Parenthood videos indicted in Texas.  Two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos alleging Planned Parenthood illegally sold fetal tissue to researchers for a profit face criminal charges in Texas from a grand jury that also found no wrongdoing by the abortion provider.

Planned Parenthood Wants To Keep Damning Videos Hidden From Supreme Court.  The man behind the Planned Parenthood videos is now in a legal tussle with a judge whose ruling will keep the evidence hidden from the Supreme Court.  David Daleiden, the man who helped create the series of Planned Parenthood videos showing the organization accepted money for fetal body parts, filed a motion Friday [1/22/2016] to allow him to submit his evidence to the Supreme Court in a major abortion regulation case.  Currently, Judge William H. Orrick, III has a restraining order on Daleiden's videos, preventing him from sharing any more of the abortion videos he has taken or sending his videos to anyone.

Planned Parenthood Abuses the Law to Stop Dissent.  Last year, a number of academics penned a letter to the Obama administration demanding a criminal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation into those who disagree with man-made global warming, following the lead of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.  As we wrote at the time, this would be an abuse of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations law — a law designed to go after organized crime, such as drug cartels and the Mafia. [...] This time, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates (the nation's largest abortion provider, which is government-subsidized) are now trying to use RICO to sue various individuals and organizations who helped expose the attempted sale of fetal body parts for cash by various Planned Parenthood employees.  Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing.

Planned Parenthood files suit against anti-abortion videos group.  Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit Thursday [1/14/2016] against the anti-abortion activists who secretly taped the group's officials talking about the sale of fetal tissue and released the heavily edited videos last year.  The videos sparked a political firestorm in Washington, with Republican lawmakers accusing Planned Parenthood of profiting from the sale and trying unsuccessfully to strip the group of federal funding.

Bias alert!
The videos were "heavily edited," but everything that was edited out was immaterial, and the un-edited versions are available to the public.  Every news story on television is heavily edited.  Movies are heavily edited.  The only people who even mention that the Planned Parenthood videos were edited are those on the political left — in this case, CNN — because that sows the seeds of doubt in the readers' minds.

12 Key Numbers From Planned Parenthood's New Annual Report.  Planned Parenthood's financial profits are on the decline, according to the group's latest annual report, which showed the group is seeing fewer patients seeking fewer services.  While profits and private contributions are waning, government assistance rose by $25.3 million in the past year.  "This was definitely a bad year for Planned Parenthood as a business," Jamie Hall, a senior policy analyst in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation told The Daily Signal.  "They lost a significant share of their patients, provided fewer actual medical services, spent far more money on other things, made less profit, and became even more dependent on government funding."

Judge: Alabama must restore Planned Parenthood contract.  In a 66-page decision, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrote that the governor's August letter terminating the contract with Planned Parenthood Southeast (PPSE) left the patients in the program without access to the provider of their choice, and would allow states to cancel contracts arbitrarily without giving parties an adequate basis of appeal.  Bentley canceled the Medicaid provider contract with Planned Parenthood after a series of videos purporting to show officials of the organization trying to sell fetuses and fetal parts surfaced.  Planned Parenthood says the officials discussed a fetal donation program, not sales, and that the videos were deceptive.  The organization has ended the donation program, which was limited to a handful of clinics.

Planned Parenthood wins eleventh-hour hold on Arkansas abortion law.  A federal judge rang in the new year by blocking an Arkansas abortion law from going into effect Friday [1/1/2016].  U.S. District Judge Kristine G. Baker wrote Thursday evening [12/31/2015] that "for now" she found enforcing some sections in Act 577 would cause a threat of irreparable harm to Planned Parenthood of the Heartland's two clinics and to their patients.

Planned Parenthood's New Annual Report: 323,999 Abortions; $553.7M in Government Money.  Planned Parenthood says in its new 2014-2015 annual report, which was released this month, that its affiliates around the country did 323,999 abortion procedures in the fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, 2014 and that those affiliates received $553.7 million in "government health services grants and reimbursements" in the year that ended on June 30, 2015.  In its previous annual report, Planned Parenthood had reported that its affiliates did 327,653 abortions in the fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, 2013 and that those affiliates had received $528.4 million in "government health services grants and reimbursements" in the year that ended on June 30, 2014.  Earlier Planned Parenthood annual reports say its affiliates did 327,166 abortion procedures in fiscal 2012 and 333,964 in fiscal 2011.

TX yanks funds from fraud-plagued Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood's affiliate in Texas has been targeted again, this time for an HIV/AIDS program.  The state notified Planned Parenthood in early December that it will not be receiving $600,000 in funds for HIV/AIDS prevention program.  The Texas Tribune reported the Department of Health Services notified PP that a contract would not be renewed for 2016.

Planned Parenthood Killed 323,999 Babies in Abortions in 2014, Provided Less Health Care.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America abortion business released its annual report today [12/28/2015] covering its activities for 2014 and the abortion company indicated it killed 323,999 babies in abortions.  Meanwhile, while the abortion corporation bills itself as a health care provider it provided health care to fewer patients in 2014 than the year before.  All of this comes at a time when Planned Parenthood is under heavy criticism for selling the body parts of aborted babies — and it has been exposed in 11 undercover videos doing so.

Planned Parenthood Says Hiding HIV From Sex Partners Is A 'Right'.  International Planned Parenthood Federation, of which Planned Parenthood Federation of America is an official affiliate, maintains it is a person's "human right" not to tell their sexual partners they are HIV positive if they don't want to.  It's all laid out in International Planned Parenthood Federation's booklet for HIV-positive youth entitled "Healthy, Happy and Hot."

Covert Planned Parenthood tapes remain sealed, for now.  About 500 hours of video and audio secretly recorded during meetings of abortion providers will remain under court-ordered seal — for now.  After hearing arguments Friday [12/18/2015], U.S. District Judge William Orrick did not rule on the National Abortion Federation's request for a preliminary injunction to keep the recordings under wraps.  While "I've concluded from the beginning I didn't see that there was evidence of criminal wrongdoing" in the making of the tapes, Orrick said, he would continue to weigh arguments that their release could put the providers at risk.

The Editor says...
The content must be pretty bad if the release of the recordings would put people in danger.  On the other hand, unless abortion-on-demand is stopped, thousands of other (very young) lives will be in considerable danger.

Deflated conservatives eye new tactics in Planned Parenthood fight.  Conservative Republicans are disappointed that the government funding bill does not defund Planned Parenthood, but say they are looking for compromise on the issue going forward.  The $1.1 trillion spending bill coming up for a vote in the House on Friday [12/18/2015] leaves Planned Parenthood funding untouched.  Cutting the funding would have been a deal-breaker for Democrats, but that is cold comfort for the conservatives who fought against the group this year.

Planned Parenthood unscathed in spending bill.  Planned Parenthood is praising Democrats in Congress after the spending bill released early Wednesday morning [12/16/2015] spared the organization from cuts.  As expected, the spending bill does not defund Planned Parenthood, a clear deal-breaker for Democrats, but the absence of spending cuts is still noteworthy given the intensity of the push to defund the group earlier this year.

Judge blocks Ohio from taking action against Planned Parenthood over disposal of fetal tissue.  A federal judge on Monday [12/14/2015] temporarily blocked Ohio officials from taking legal action against Planned Parenthood to enforce fetal tissue disposal rules, and Republican state lawmakers proposed new regulations for such disposal.

Poll defies narrative, shows most Americans favor GOP plan to defund Planned Parenthood.  A little-noticed poll is challenging the widely touted narrative that most Americans oppose GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.  The nationwide poll conducted by the Robert Morris University Polling Institute found that 53.3 percent of those surveyed support moving federal funding from Planned Parenthood to community clinics that do not offer abortions, while 31.5 percent are opposed.

Planned Parenthood sues Ohio in dispute over fetal tissue.  Planned Parenthood sued Ohio's health director on Sunday [12/11/2015] in a dispute over how the organization's affiliates handle the disposal of fetal tissue in the state.

Planned Parenthood sues Ohio after being accused of 'callously' disposing of fetal remains in landfills.  Planned Parenthood sued Ohio's health director on Sunday [12/13/2015] in a dispute over how the organization's affiliates handle the disposal of fetal tissue in the state.

The Editor says...
In what courthouse does one file a lawsuit on a Sunday?

Planned Parenthood Admits Sending Aborted Babies to Landfills; AP Plays Defense.  The callousness towards human life at Planned Parenthood is such that it believes that the remains of preborn babies killed during abortions are just like any other "medical waste," and that sending them to landfills — or, perhaps even incinerators — is therefore "humane."  That's what one must conclude from reading an Associated Press report Friday evening which strived mightily to play defense for the beleaguered group.  The wire service's headline only described State Attorney General Mike DeWine as an "official."

Ohio AG: Planned Parenthood aborted fetuses end up in landfills.  Aborted fetuses from Planned Parenthood clinics in Ohio are ending up being disposed of in landfills, according to an investigation from the state's attorney general (AG).  The investigation, according to a Friday [12/11/2015] press release, concluded that the three Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio have sent fetal remains to companies that in turn disposed of them in landfills.  Attorney General Mike DeWine, a conservative Republican, said Planned Parenthood's practices in the state violated Ohio Administrative Code, which requires that a "fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner."

Censored: Nets Ignore 'Landmark' Senate Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood.  The liberal media often say more by what they don't report than by what they do report — especially when it comes to topics that challenge their agenda.  During the Friday morning [12/4/2015] news shows, all three broadcast networks censored Thursday's vote to strip federal funding of Planned Parenthood.  While ABC, NBC and CBS turned a blind-eye, other traditional media outlets and the pro-life movement reported the "landmark victory."  The reconciliation bill, which would repeal key provisions in Obamacare in addition to defunding Planned Parenthood, passed 52 to 47.  If made law, the bill would transfer taxpayer dollars from the abortion giant to comprehensive health care centers.

Dems: A Nut Shot People Near Planned Parenthood. That Means You Should Fund Abortion.  The cynicism of the left is truly breathtaking.  Utilizing a shooting by a legitimately insane person named Robert Dear outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Democrats are now pushing for Republicans to stop talking about abortion and to keep funding it.

Networks Ignore Officer Killed in Planned Parenthood Shooting Was Pro-Life.  The Bible says, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" and that appears to be the standard by which one man lived, who gave his life Friday [11/27/2015] protecting those he disagreed with on abortion.  But you won't hear that story from the media because the pro-life "Good Samaritan" doesn't fit their agenda.

PP and MSM condemning decent Americans.  [Scroll down]  Even after the release of numerous undercover videos exposing the shocking truth that Planned Parenthood has been illegally and callously harvesting dead baby body parts for profit, PP remains defiant.  The latest undercover video catches an abortion doctor selling prized aborted baby heads.  Undeterred, the mainstream media and Democrats remain rock-solid in their loyalty to PP.  Remember, Democrats and mainstream media are secular progressive disciples.  Abortion is their holy sacrament — must kill babies to save the planet (Goddess Earth).

Anti-Abortion Rhetoric Is Not Responsible for Planned Parenthood Shooting.  As many conservatives have pointed out, Floyd Corkins, who attacked the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., in 2012, wanted to kill as many people as he could because he detested the organization's opposition to gay marriage.  Craig Stephens Hicks, an atheist who killed three Muslims in North Carolina in February, was supposedly a fan of Rachel Maddow and Bill Nye the Science Guy.  It is just as grotesque to blame Maddow or Nye for those crimes as it is to try to smear the average abortion opponent with the Colorado shooting.

The Irony Of Planned Parenthood Condemning Murder.  Last Friday's shooting near a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, once again ignited the flames of debate on both sides of the political aisle. [...] Pro-life voters, politicians, and organizations spend time and resources actively trying to ensure that every unborn baby has a chance to breathe oxygen and that every pregnant mother is supported and realizes she can offer her child up for an adoption instead of aborting.  The idea that these folks would even passively support the murder of anyone related to Planned Parenthood is so absurd one can only conclude it aims to distract from the sole issue here:  The Right supports life in all its stages and all its forms and sizes, and the Left does not.

Washington Post: The Problem Is Not Selling Baby Parts, But Exposing The Selling Of Baby Parts.  It's still interesting, but, not in a good way, how leftists who support abortion on demand will Blamestorm those who are against abortion on demand, blaming them all for the infrequent and small issues regarding violence against Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills.  Yet, they mostly refuse to acknowledge that people who yell Allahu Akbar and cite the Koran before blowing people up, sawing heads off, shooting up civilians, flying planes into buildings, etc, have anything to do with Islam in the least.

Report: Colorado Springs Gunman Registered to Vote as 'Unaffiliated Female,' Was 'Unknown' to Pro-Lifers in Area.  The gunman who opened fire in a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Friday was "unknown" to pro-lifers in the area and registered to vote as an "unaffiliated female" rather than a Democrat or Republican. [...] According to The Gazette, Colorado Springs Respect Life's (CSRL) Joseph Martone Jr. said Dear is "unknown" to the group.  CSRL is a pro-life group that "meets twice weekly at the Planned Parenthood for Mass on the mornings the clinic reportedly does surgical abortions."  Martone said, "Nobody seems to know him."

Planned Parenthood blames 'hateful speech' for clinic shooting; GOP leaders cite left-wing agenda.  Planned Parenthood officials on Sunday [11/29/2015] blamed the "hateful speech" of conservative lawmakers and Republican presidential contenders for contributing to Friday's deadly shooting at a Colorado clinic, but conservatives said the left is trying to use the tragedy for political gain and to again push for gun control measures.

The Editor says...
Be not deceived; God is not mocked:  for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Abortion industry already dancing on the graves of Colorado Springs shooting victims.  Ghoulish exploitation of the deaths and injuries inflicted in Colorado Springs last Friday was always in the cards.  What else would you expect from a movement that specializes in death?  Even so, the speed and facility with which Robert Lewis Dear, Jr., a troubled man with many eccentricities (including listing himself as a female on his voter registration and living as a loner in Unabomber-like shacks), has been propagandized as a pro-life activist (a murderous pro-lifer makes sense only in leftist fever swamps) is startling.

Planned Parenthood Sues Texas in Dispute Over Funding for Clinics.  Planned Parenthood said that the videos were deceptively edited and that the group did not do anything illegal or unethical.  Its officials said the state's decision to eliminate the group's Medicaid funding, set to take effect as early as Dec. 8, was politically motivated and without merit.  The nonprofit organization's lawsuit alleges that Texas violated federal law and the so-called Medicaid freedom of choice provision, which allows those enrolled in Medicaid to seek services from a qualified provider of their choice.

Planned Parenthood campaign asking for one-word description backfires badly.  Planned Parenthood Action Fund's social-media campaign asking for a one-word description of its work so far hasn't turned out exactly as planned.  Not unless responses like "deceitful," "barbarous, "villainous," and "scandal-ridden" were what organizers had in mind.

Planned Parenthood Paid $3 for Birth Control but Billed Medicaid $35, Former Manager Says.  A little-known whistleblower lawsuit accuses Planned Parenthood clinics in Iowa of wrongly siphoning millions of American taxpayer dollars with a series of complicated billing schemes aimed at increasing profits.  Among other dishonest practices, a former manager of the clinics alleges, Planned Parenthood staffers routinely purchased birth control pills for just under $3, billed Medicaid $35 for the same package of pills, and got reimbursed for $26.

Planned Parenthood and its defenders are degrading motherhood as we know it.  As a relatively new mother who still marvels over becoming one, I am sick at heart by the Planned Parenthood footage and wish I could undo what I've seen and heard.  But late last month, on my Facebook newsfeed, I noticed post after post from peers defending Planned Parenthood.  After ten videos uncovering this group's horrific practices, I wondered:  Why now are people jumping to defend this organization?

Six Democrats picked to investigate Planned Parenthood took $81,000 from its PAC.  The six Democrats named this week to the House Select Investigative Panel looking into Planned Parenthood's fetal-tissue practices have received more than $81,000 from PACs affiliated with the organization.  The conservative Media Research Center, using data from the Center for Responsive Politics, released figures Thursday [11/5/2015] saying the $81,000 represents campaign contributions from 1998 to 2016.

Boehner II: The Revenge — Ryan Will Fund Planned Parenthood.  Paul Ryan is a movement conservative.  But he may not be a good Speaker of the House.  Being a movement conservative means having conservative instincts on the issues:  recognizing the power and virtue of the free market, believing in a government that protects individual rights instead of forwarding imposed notions of material equality.  Being a good Speaker of the House means using all the tools at your disposal to stop the agenda of the left.

Latest Planned Parenthood Video Could Show Evidence Of At Least Brutal 3 Crimes.  Yet another undercover video has been released by The Center For Medical Progress exposing the disturbing practices of Planned Parenthood.  In the video, a woman identified as Dr. Amna Dermish, a second-trimester abortion provider for Planned Parenthood, discusses her attempts to perform an abortion while keeping the fetus' head, or calvarium, intact.  Dermish believes she is talking to potential buyers for fetal body parts. [...] The Center for Medical Progress claims that the new video is evidence of two crimes:  performing an illegal partial birth abortion and the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue.

Feds warn Texas over plan to cut Planned Parenthood from Medicaid.  The federal government has notified Texas officials that the state's attempt to stop allowing Planned Parenthood to receive Medicaid reimbursements may be illegal.  As it has after similar moves in Louisiana, Alabama and Arkansas, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday [10/27/2015] notified Texas officials in a telephone call that their attempt "may be in conflict with federal law," according to a statement.

Intact baby heads 'something to strive for'.  Getting intact baby heads is "something to strive for," according to a Planned Parenthood abortionist who operates at the abortion behemoth's business in Austin, Texas.  The comment is from Amna Dermish, who told undercover video investigators with the Center for Medical Progress:  "I haven't been able to do that yet.  This will give me something to strive for!"  And she laughs.  It comes in the 11th undercover video released by CMP exposing Planned Parenthood's trade in the body parts of aborted babies.

Frontiers of political correctness: banning the word 'too'.  Move over, Melissa Harris-Perry — it is getting crowded on the lunatic PC bench.  Joining "hard worker" (racist!) on the PC banned word list is "too" (sexist!).  That's right: an adjective and adverb positing that something is more excessive in some quality than desirable is now verboten, as far as the Huffington Post is concerned.  The editors there gave considerable space to Cameron Schaeffer, who identifies herself as a freshman at the University of Vermont, where her head has obviously been filled with victimology nonsense.

Planned Parenthood Abortionist Admits She Alters Baby's Position to Harvest Intact Heads.  In the 11th video released by Center for Medical Progress, a Planned Parenthood abortionist in Texas admits she alters the position of the baby during an abortion in order to be able to harvest an intact head for human organ procurement.

Hacker obtains, leaks 11 undercover Planned Parenthood videos blocked by court.  The website GotNews.com claims it has obtained and released "all" the remaining undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials shot by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), including videos that were blocked from being released to the public by a court order.  Eleven previously unseen videos have been uploaded to YouTube.  The website's founder, journalist Charles C. Johnson, said that an internet hacker named Andrew "Weev" Auernheimer obtained the footage and uploaded it to YouTube.

Texas Officials Have Raided Planned Parenthood Clinics.  Bad news for pro-abortion radicals in Texas.  Investigators have raided several Planned Parenthood clinics on suspicion of Medicaid fraud. [...] Their suspicions aren't unfounded:  Planned Parenthood has been found to have defrauded Medicaid on several prior occasions.  It should be interesting to see what Texas officials are able to uncover this time.

John Boehner selects GOP panel to probe abortion practices.  Outgoing House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Friday announced his picks for the new Select Investigative Panel that will probe the practices of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.  The new panel has been created in the wake of several undercover videos that revealed Planned Parenthood's questionable practice of selling aborted fetal tissue, and possibly profiting from the sales.

Texas health officials demand hundreds of documents from Planned Parenthood.  Texas health investigators on Thursday served orders for hundreds of documents at Planned Parenthood offices across the state, including patient records and employee addresses.  The move came three days after the state announced plans to pull public funding from the organization, energizing the national debate over the nonprofit's fetal tissue donation program.

State investigators demand thousands of documents at abortion clinics.  Continuing a growing state crackdown on Planned Parenthood, Texas health officials Thursday [10/22/2015] demanded thousands of documents, including patient records and clinical notes, from the organization's abortion clinics and health centers across Texas.  In surprise morning visits to Planned Parenthood offices in San Antonio, Dallas and the Houston area, investigators delivered written requests for records going back as far as 2010 from at least 10 of the organization's facilities.

Texas cuts Planned Parenthood from Medicaid.  The state of Texas on Monday [10/19/2015] informed Planned Parenthood affiliates that it was cutting off the organization from the state's Medicaid program — citing recently released undercover videos of as evidence of violations.  A letter from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission Office of the Inspector General went out Monday [10/19/2015] to inform affiliates they are believed to be "no longer capable of performing medical services in a professionally competent, safe, legal, and ethical manner," according to a copy posted by The Dallas Morning News.

Despite grisly videos, a majority are still OK with Planned Parenthood.  Despite a series of shocking, secretly-recorded videos of Planned Parenthood officers discussing sale of body parts from aborted babies, the American public still thinks favorably of the organization.  The new Gallup Poll found that 59% of 1,015 adults surveyed this month still have a positive overall opinion about the organization.

Meet the millennial who infiltrated the guarded world of abortion providers.  If people noticed that he seemed a bit stiff, they tended to write it off as an odd physical tic.  In fact, David Daleiden was probably trying to keep his hidden camera straight.  Daleiden, 26, is the anti-abortion activist who masterminded the recent undercover campaign aimed at proving that Planned Parenthood illegally sells what he calls aborted "baby body parts."

Planned Parenthood Will No Longer Accept Reimbursement For Fetal Tissue.  In an effort to move beyond recent controversy, Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday [10/13/2015] that it will no longer accept reimbursement for any fetal tissue it provides to medical researchers.  The organization has been the subject of negative attention in recent weeks following the release of highly edited sting videos recorded by an anti-abortion group alleging that Planned Parenthood illegally profits from its fetal tissue donation program.

Planned Parenthood stops taking money for fetal tissue donations.  Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday [10/13/2015] that it will no longer accept any reimbursement as part of its fetal tissue donation program, taking its strongest step yet to end the onslaught of conservative attacks against the group.  The group's president Cecile Richards disclosed the policy change in a letter to the National Institutes of Health, which she said was intended to "take away any basis for attacking Planned Parenthood to advance an anti-abortion political agenda."

Planned Parenthood Abruptly Ends Compensation For Fetal Harvesting.  Planned Parenthood clinics will no longer accept payment for their work harvesting and distributing aborted fetuses, the non-profit said Tuesday [10/13/2015].  Clinics will continue filling the demand for fetuses, but will "immediately" stop accepting money for the service, the group's president, Cecile Richards, wrote in a letter to the National Institutes of Health, reported The Wall Street Journal.

'Annuit Coeptis': Wondering if God Still Smiles on Us.  Since the release of the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood, the defenders of that organization and its good works have repeated certain inconsequential arguments.  The films were edited.  The image of a doomed infant kicking its legs as it lay in a pan is not the same infant referred to in a technician's horrifying account of mutilation and butchery, spoken over the image.  The filmmakers concealed the real explanation for the baby kicking away his few moments of life — he had been exposed, after a botched abortion.  Furthermore, the organization that made the undercover films is biased — a pro-life group with a dogmatic animus against the sort of practices merrily discussed by the physicians of Planned Parenthood over lunch.  And Planned Parenthood provides all sorts of valuable medical services for women — let us focus upon that, and not the side issue of infanticide.

'All Sorts Of Nasty': These 39 Yelp Reviews Of Planned Parenthood Clinics Will Horrify You.  The "story bank" is a public relations operation.  But check out these stories shared by Planned Parenthood patients on Yelp, a popular online customer review application, that won't be disseminated by Planned Parenthood's powerful public relations operation.

Dems catch GOP off guard with Planned Parenthood vote.  Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee temporarily overpowered their GOP colleagues to block testimony from an anti-Planned Parenthood witness during a hearing Thursday.  Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), protested a graphic video about abortion procedures that was shown to the committee by Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has performed abortions.

House panel advances bill to gut Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood.  Reaching for a GOP prize amid party chaos, the House Budget Committee approved a fast-track bill Friday [10/9/2015] to gut Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood, the women's health provider steeped in controversy over its abortion practice.  The panel voted along party lines, 21-11, to use a budget tool known as "reconciliation" to send the legislation to the floor, hoping to then bypass a Democratic filibuster in the Senate and finally get a major GOP attack on the health care law to President Obama's desk.

Center for Medical Progress can release Planned Parenthood probe video to Congress, judge rules.  A federal judge in San Francisco ruled Tuesday that the pro-life Center for Medical Progress may comply with a congressional subpoena for undercover video footage related to its Planned Parenthood investigation despite a temporary restraining order.  U.S. District Court Judge William H. Orrick III said he would allow the center to honor the subpoena issued by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, overriding the objections of the National Abortion Federation, which requested the restraining order.

Planned Parenthood Can't Handle the Truth.  Planned Parenthood piously holds itself out as a benevolent, quasi-sacred entity, selflessly devoted to improving women's health.  It has consistently denied critics' claims that it performs no mammograms, but at the hearing, Richards unremorsefully conceded the charge and pretended she never said otherwise.  And it's not just about mammograms.  Americans United for Life has shown that under Richards' leadership, there has been a marked decrease in cancer screening and breast health services while there has been an increase in abortion.  Though Planned Parenthood peddles the misleading statistic that abortion only constitutes 3 percent of its health services, Richards indifferently confessed that abortion generates 86 percent of its revenue, excluding federal subsidies.

The Baby Butchers and Their Media Butchers.  The propagandists of Planned Parenthood don't want you to remember that earlier this summer the group apologized for the "tone" of one of its top officials, Deborah Nucatola, who casually hawked unborn baby parts to undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress as she swilled wine and chomped on a salad.  Not long after confessing that the "tone" of their butchers might cause offense, another top Planned Parenthood trafficker, Mary Gatter, joked about scoring a luxury car after haggling over $75 baby-organ price tags. [...] Ten lengthy, damning videos later, the billion-dollar abortion giant is in full-blown whitewash mode — and its bloodstained accomplices in the liberal media are out in force with their paint rollers.

Three Pinocchios:
The repeated, misleading claim that Planned Parenthood 'provides' mammograms.  The myth that Planned Parenthood actually offers mammogram X-rays to patients has been long debunked, and needs to stop being repeated.  Planned Parenthood does not administer mammograms, but it keeps being perpetuated by the group's supporters, including celebrities whose claims have a wide reach.  When Democratic lawmakers or other supporters assert that Planned Parenthood "provides" mammograms, this is highly misleading language because it could be interpreted to mean that the group directly administers the X-rays.  The group does not "provide" mammograms.  Rather, the situation is similar to other clinics where patients are referred to a licensed facility that can provide biopsies, X-rays or other specialized services.  It is slightly more accurate to say that women have "access" to mammograms via Planned Parenthood, though it's still slippery language.

Editing flap: TV 'edits' 5-hour Planned Parenthood hearing to 1 minute.  Network and cable TV news are coming under fire for repeatedly smearing as "heavily edited" the controversial secretly taped Planned Parenthood videos of officers discussing the sale of aborted fetus parts.  After Tuesday's [9/29/2015] five-hour House hearing on the issue with witness Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, the media is being slammed for doing exactly what the producer of the videos did — and worse — editing hours of tape for a watchable news segment.

Analysis Makes Liberals Out as Liars, Proves Planned Parenthood Expose Videos are Authentic.  The attack from the left on the recent series of video exposes of the evil actions by Planned Parenthood is that the videos are "fake" or are "heavily edited."  But now an independent "forensic analysis" of these videos proves that the videos are real and that the liberals are lying.  These videos from The Center for Medical Progress are real.  They explicitly prove that Planned Parenthood murders babies so that it can sell their body parts for cash.

Cecile Richards: 'Abortion is Healthcare'.  lanned Parenthood president Cecile Richards affirms to Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) and other members of the House Oversight Committee her belief that:  "Abortion is healthcare."  Black, the author of a bill that passed the House and would redirect taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood to other federally qualified health care centers that do not provide abortions, challenged Richards on why she dismissed her legislation as not acceptable to women when those other healthcare centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1.  Richards responded that they do not provide abortions and "abortion is healthcare."

Planned Parenthood Confirms: They Don't Do Mammograms.  Tuesday [9/29/2015], Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards testified before a Congress.  During the five-hour-long hearing, Congresswoman Mia Love asked Richards how many mammogram machines Planned Parenthood has at their disposal.  Contrary to the organization's long-standing claims, Richards admitted they have none.

GOP: Planned Parenthood wasted millions on 'lavish' travel, parties.  The head of the House Oversight Committee is accusing Planned Parenthood of misspending more than $40 million in federal dollars on "lavish" travel, theme parties and a costly Manhattan office.  Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on Tuesday [9/29/2015] accused the organization of racking up "exorbitant travel expenses," including first-class flights, charter travel and entertainment costs that included $622,706 on "blowout parties" with celebrity guests.

Jim Jordan Unloads On Planned Parenthood President.  Rep. Jim Jordan unloaded on Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards Tuesday in a congressional committee hearing insisting, "You can't say I'm apologizing for statements in one video and then not tell us what those statements were."

Planned Parenthood President: "We Look At How To Expand Into Areas Particularly Where There's Unmet Need.  At a Congressional hearing on the practices of Planned Parenthood Tuesday morning [9/29/2015], president Cecile Richards explained the organization's decision making that goes into opening new clinics in neighborhoods in order to expand their reach.  "We don't profit," Richards said to Rep. Paul Gosar, who was questioning her at the time.  "I don't actually look at how to profit.  We do obviously look at how to expand into areas particularly where there's unmet need."

Planned Parenthood president 'proud' of supplying fetal tissue.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards will tell Congress Tuesday [9/29/2015] that she's proud of the group's involvement in providing aborted fetal tissue for medical researchers, in her first-ever appearance before a congressional committee.  Richards will testify to the House Oversight Committee as Republicans probe Planned Parenthood following a series of controversial undercover videos that have drawn widespread attention to its participation in providing and being compensated for fetal tissue.

Planned Parenthood Got $528M In Tax Dollars, Paid Cecile Richards $523,000.  Planned Parenthood received $528 million in government health services grants and reimbursements or 41 percent of its total revenue for the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2014 and gave its president, Cecile Richards, $523,000 in annual compensation.  "My annual compensation is $523,000 a year," Richards told House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

Planned Parenthood boss clashes with lawmakers over taxpayer $$, videos.  The head of Planned Parenthood clashed with congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill Tuesday over the group's taxpayer funding, while using her appearance to attack the group behind a series of disturbing videos showing her organization's workers discussing fetal tissue harvesting.  Cecile Richards, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, claimed the videos were "deceptively edited" and "heavily doctored."  Yet just minutes before the hearing started, a forensic analysis said the videos "are authentic and show no evidence of manipulation or editing."

I Went To Planned Parenthood For Birth Control, But They Pushed Abortion.  [Scroll down]  I had to fill out a form.  On it you check the boxes of things you are willing to consider.  The options essentially broke down to a) abortion b) adoption c) parenting.  I chalked it up to alphabetical order that abortion came first.  At this point in life, I still solidly fell on the "I would never have an abortion, but other people should be able to" side of the fence.  I checked options B and C, took the test, and was taken into a room to hear my results.  Before getting those results, I was interrogated.

10 Stories The Media Won't Tell You About The Pope's USA Visit.  [#7] The Pope Equates Planned Parenthood to State-Sponsored Execution:  Some pro-lifers are probably dissatisfied with Pope Francis's comments about the sacredness of life during the congressional address.  Although he did affirm his staunch pro-life position when he exhorted Americans to "protect and defend life at every stage of its development," he immediately shifted the focus to capital punishment.

Cecile Richards 'Proud' of Planned Parenthood's Organ Harvest but Claims 'Minuscule' Activity.  In Planned Parenthood's first congressional appearance since the release of undercover videos, the group's president is defending its provision of fetal tissue for researchers and castigating Republicans for not investigating the anti-abortion activists who furtively made the recordings.

Lawsuit sheds light on dramatic increase in taxpayer funding for embattled NH abortion provider.  As the question of public funding for Planned Parenthood plays out on the state and national stage, New Hampshire's leading anti-abortion group, N.H. Right to Life, recently released Planned Parenthood of Northern New England financial statements, tax returns and other documents that it says show a well-financed organization that has doubled its funding from public sources in the past five years.

Pelosi: I haven't seen Planned Parenthood videos, but they're doctored.  House Minority Leader Nanci Pelosi, D-Calif., questioned the truthfulness of the undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the harvesting and sale of fetal organs, while admitting that she has not watched the videos. [...] "I also know that some of it is not real and you can create any reality that you want," she said, while admitting that she has not seen the videos, and has only read news reports about them.

Restricting Planned Parenthood's 'sickening' baby body parts trade.  We have all been so shocked and outraged by the videos portraying the grisly practices of Planned Parenthood.  These videos show abortions being altered so as to maximize the harvesting and resale of organs and body parts.  It really is sickening.  Today I want to outline for you what we're doing to hold this organization and other abortion providers accountable, and defend our unborn children and the values that we all hold dear.  First, to get answers for the American people, we are significantly ramping up our oversight and investigative practices.  We will move to establish a new select subcommittee that will focus its full attention, resources and subpoena power on getting to the bottom of these horrific practices.

Disgraced Speaker Worked Deal to Fund Planned Parenthood With Pelosi.  In all seriousness, Ted Cruz just unleashed several quotes of the year as the bumbling, incoherent, chain smoking loser known as John Boehner has decided to collect his long-anticipated 8-figure retirement bonus by transferring to a lobbying role on K Street.

Forget defunding — Planned Parenthood should be prosecuted!  [Scroll down]  The bottom line of the situation is this: if there was any doubt about what really happens when a woman chooses to have an abortion, those doubts have been removed by these videos.  We aren't dealing with a glob of tissue; we are dealing with a living human being who ends up murdered from this procedure.  And even if you don't agree with the reality of life beginning at conception, these videos have produced enough evidence to justify a full investigation into the illegal harvesting by Planned Parenthood of the body parts from these murder victims.

Senate rejects effort to strip funding from Planned Parenthood.  The Senate on Thursday [9/24/2015] rejected a short-term spending bill that would defund Planned Parenthood, thwarting the opening move by Republican leaders to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1.  Senators voted 47-52 on ending debate on the short-term continuing resolution, well short of the 60 votes needed.

It's not Fiorina who is wrong in the Planned Parenthood fight.  "Anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes.  Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says, 'We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.'" [...] The videotape in question was put out by the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group that went undercover to record Planned Parenthood officials discussing the buying and selling of organs and tissue from aborted fetuses — some just shy of 20 weeks — to medical research companies.

Fiorina forces Big Media to face videos they've avoided.  You know the video series, now 10 episodes presenting an increasingly dark view of Planned Parenthood's cash-for-parts business.  You know, also, if you've been following it at all, that traditional media outlets have spent months avoiding almost any coverage of or comment about them. [...] To the extent there was any reporting on the Fusion GPS investigation by Big Media, it was essentially stenographer service for Planned Parenthood, and that was enough for pro-abortion pundits to declare the whole business debunked.  Enough of that.

Defenders Of Planned Parenthood Still Haven't Seen The Videos.  It doesn't take long for those will take a bullet for Planned Parenthood despite being caught on tape numerous times engaging in possible criminal activity, to admit they haven't even seen the tapes in question. [...] It was Martin Luther King Jr. who said:  ["]To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it[."]  The defenders of Planned Parenthood continue to ignore the evil.  Whenever they defend the organization, they never use the word "abortion."  Doing so would force them to confront what Planned Parenthood does every year which is to abort over 300,000 unborn babies.

House votes to defund Planned Parenthood.  The House voted Friday to block hundreds of Planned Parenthood clinics from getting federal funds for one year, a vote that was meant to deliver a strong rebuke to the country's largest abortion provider, and also help avert a government shutdown.  The measure passed 241-187 Friday morning [9/18/2015] with the support of just two Democrats, and three Republicans voted against it.  It would halt roughly $500 million in federal funds, mostly through Medicaid and family planning dollars, to nearly 700 Planned Parenthood clinics around the country, unless the chain of women's health clinics agrees to stop offering the procedure.

The Editor says...
They voted to cut off funding of Planned Parenthood for one year.  Brilliant.  What will have changed after one year?

Arkansas judge reinstates Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood.  A federal judge on Friday [9/18/2015] ordered Arkansas to temporarily reinstate its Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood after the state blocked funding over concerns about secretly recorded videos released by an anti-abortion group.

Three Republicans Opposed House Vote To Defund Planned Parenthood.  The House voted to defund Planned Parenthood Friday [9/18/2015] with the support of two Democrats and all but three Republicans.  The (241-187) vote is an effectively symbolic response to a series of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress in which top Planned Parenthood doctors and officials discuss how and at what cost some of their clinics harvest and distribute aborted fetuses.  Republican Reps. Robert Dold, Charlie Dent and Richard Hanna sided with Democrats against the bill, which would defund Planned Parenthood for a year.  Every other Republican representative present, along with Democratic Reps. Dan Lipinski and Collin Peterson voted in favor of the defunding bill.

Defund Planned Parenthood to save the nation's character.  This week, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to take federal funds away from Planned Parenthood for a year.  To understand why, one need look no further than the video series on Planned Parenthood that was released over the last couple of months by the Center for Medical Progress.  The videos contained substantial evidence that Planned Parenthood affiliates are breaking two federal laws — one forbidding the alteration of abortion procedures in order to preserve organs for use in research, and another that forbids the sale of aborted babies' organs.  Planned Parenthood has denied violating these laws.  Despite hints to the contrary contained within the videos, the organization claims that it only accepts reimbursements for its costs in preserving the body parts it sends to biomedical companies that use them.

Attorney to Congress: Planned Parenthood Given 'Privilege Other Providers Don't Get'.  In testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Thursday, an attorney asserted that the Obama administration's actions to protect Planned Parenthood has given the nation's largest abortion provider a special privilege not given to other Medicaid providers, while also "robbing the states of control over their own state Medicaid programs to protect a politically powerful but ethically and legally challenged organization."

House bills hit Planned Parenthood, some abortion doctors.  Seeking to avert a government shutdown, Republican leaders drove a bill blocking Planned Parenthood's federal funds through the House on Friday [9/18/2015], hoping to contain conservatives' demands for a politically risky showdown with President Barack Obama by striking a quick blow against abortion.

Dems Try to Block Planned Parenthood Videos at House Hearing.  House Republicans showed the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos in a hearing today [9/17/2015].  Democrats tried to block them.  The hearing in the House subcommittee on health of the Committee on Energy and Commerce was to consider proposals to expand protections for unborn children who survive an abortion and also the federal ban on partial birth abortion.  Reps. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Renee Elmers (R-NC) want the Congress to give states the right to withhold federal funding, especially Medicaid funding, if an abortion provider is even suspected to violating either the Infants Born Alive Protection Act or the Partial Birth Abortion Act.

Planned Parenthood Horror: "We sell fresh aborted baby eyes, hearts and gonads.".  The butchers of Planned Parenthood slaughter millions of unborn, partially born and new born children at will and for profit.  They seem to think it's funny when an intact fetus is delivered to a lab and the workers are shocked by it.  It's giggle-worthy when they sever testicles.  They blithely discuss skirting the law over fine cuisine and wine.  Breaking the law for these monsters is just part of doing business.  This video and all the others before it should go viral.  Every church out there should show them.  As hard as it is to watch, you can't combat evil, unless you can confront it.  These are demonic serial killers who are preying on the most helpless among us, our young.

Planned Parenthood Admits It's Terrified of Media 5x in New Video: 'Headlines Would Be a Disaster'.  Ironically, Planned Parenthood trembles in the face of its most faithful ally:  the traditional media.  The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a tenth investigative video Sept. 15, that showed Planned Parenthood executives discussing aborted baby parts for money as a "valid exchange" for a "fair amount of income."  The Planned Parenthood executives admitted terror and distrust of the media — and worried about becoming a public relations or "P.R. issue" that might make headlines.

'Everything We Provide is Fresh,' Planned Parenthood Leader Tells Undercover Camera.  As members of Congress consider whether to defund Planned Parenthood, a new video highlights the abortion provider's booming business in organs harvested from aborted babies.  "We've just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural," Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for Planned Parenthood for America tells a hidden camera.  "Certainly, everything we provide — oh, gonads! [...] Everything we provide is fresh."

Planned Parenthood spent $5 million for Dems, $13k for GOP.  As Congress heads into a debate over whether to continue funds to Planned Parenthood, a Washington Examiner analysis shows that Planned Parenthood and affiliates spent almost $5 million dollars in election ads promoting Democratic lawmakers in 2014.  Additionally, Planned Parenthood has contributed $679,596 directly to federal candidates, $676,885 of that to Democrats, in 2014.  Planned Parenthood was in the top 10 percent of nearly 200 outside expenditure groups in 2014, and the analysis shows that the abortion giant spent $0 on ads attacking Democratic candidates.

2 Months: Networks Aired Only 0.13% of Planned Parenthood Videos.  Instead of watching the news, it's time for pro-life Americans to be the news — to use social media and word-of-mouth — about Planned Parenthood.  Because the networks won't.  Since July 14, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released 16 hours, 11 minutes and 35 seconds of footage exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting aborted baby parts.  In those past two months, ABC, NBC and CBS have only aired one minute and 13 seconds of these videos (with audio) during their news shows.

Not Even House Hearings Can Break Nets' Planned Parenthood Blackout.  Say this for ABC, CBS and NBC:  they're nothing if not tenacious.  The networks have been diligent, even relentless, in their efforts to ignore the Planned Parenthood scandal, proving that when they circle the wagons around an ideological comrade, they stay circled.  The networks have maintained their blackout of news about the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing that America's largest government subsidized abortion mill trades in a robust aftermarket of aborted baby parts — and does so with all the sensitivity and humanity of an automotive chop-shop.

The War on Innocents.  Allowing the tax-funded expansion of Planned Parenthood's abortion industry to continue is national suicide.  This crisis must be confronted as the greatest internal threat facing our nation since slavery.  Ted Cruz and House conservatives are alone in this battle, insisting that any funding bill signed by Obama explicitly exclude tax funding of abortion.  Establishment Republicans have already capitulated the leverage of a government shutdown, with majority leader Mitch McConnell saying this is "another issue that awaits a new president with hopefully a different point of view toward Planned Parenthood."  Hopefully a different point of view?  Is that the rousing Republican response to Planned Parenthood's bloody desecration of human lives on the taxpayer's dime?

Planned Parenthood Deals Taxpayer-Funded Death.  Yesterday [8/19/2015], a new horror was revealed: America's taxpayer-funded abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, harvests organs from babies that are born alive, their hearts beating as they are dissected.  This evil practice goes beyond accusations that Planned Parenthood is conducting partial-birth abortions, or harvesting fetal tissue illegally.  Now we know that Planned Parenthood is engaging in an act that is murder in all 50 states — and reminiscent of Kermit Gosnell, whose House of Horrors shocked the nation.  Five states have defunded America's abortion giant in recent weeks, and Congress is investigating its practices.  Yet, at the White House, President Obama hypocritically condemned ritual harvesting by Africans even as his administration admits it is using Planned Parenthood's talking points in its own statements, and threatened spurious lawsuits against states that dare to defund Planned Parenthood.

Conservatives Prepare to Make a Stand on Planned Parenthood.  The make-or-break moment for House conservatives to defund Planned Parenthood is here.  Outraged by undercover videos on fetal tissue donation, conservatives are pushing to cut all federal funding for Planned Parenthood as part of legislation that would avert a government shutdown on Oct. 1.  Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, spearheaded a letter to House GOP leaders shortly before lawmakers' August recess that stated he and 17 other Republicans would not vote for any spending bill that continues funding for Planned Parenthood.

Abortion industry rejects oversight.  It should be a national scandal that the abortion industry fights viciously against any kind of medical standard of care to protect women, even when those efforts mirror its own internal recommendations.  The industry simply rejects accountability.  Recently, a federal appeals court upheld a Texas law requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges near their practices.  Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, admits that women may suffer complications after abortions, including blood clots, hemorrhage, incomplete abortions, infection and organ injuries.  It further concedes that in Texas, at least 210 women a year must be hospitalized after abortions.

Survivors of Botched Abortions Will Testify Before Congress Against Planned Parenthood.  The House Judiciary Committee has announced that Congress will hold its first hearing on the Planned Parenthood scandal next week, following the recess.  Among the witnesses to provide testimony are two women who survived abortion attempts; they will speak from first-hand experience about the horrors of the abortion industry.  The first of a series of hearings, titled "Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation's Largest Abortion Provider," will take place on Wednesday, September 9.

David Daleiden says undercover team infiltrated Planned Parenthood by using 'magic words'.  David Daleiden says his investigators at the pro-life Center for Medical Progress were able to gain access to top Planned Parenthood officials by using "the magic words."  "It was definitely surprising to myself and to some of the other investigators on the team that when our investigators basically said two things to Planned Parenthood representatives — number one, you know, 'We love abortion, we think what you do is great, thank you,' and number two, 'We want to harvest your baby parts and sell them, and pay you money in exchange for that,'" he said.  "Those two statements were like the magic words that got us in the door," Mr. Daleiden said.

Baby Organ Harvester to Hillary: "You're My Personal Hero".  This week, the State Department released emails from Hillary Clinton's private server and one was from a Planned Parenthood executive praising her for promoting abortion and urging her to speak out against a measure in Kenya to include in its new constitution language asserting that "life begins at conception."  CNS News reports that in 2009 Clinton received an email from Planned Parenthood's vice president of public policy and advocacy, Laurie Rubiner, and she told her she was her "personal hero."  She thanked Clinton on behalf of their organization and asked her to speak against the Kenya initiative in her next trip to the country.

Planned Parenthood President: If Feds Won't Do It, We Need States To Defund Abstinence Programs.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, whose organization is arguing states cannot defund Planned Parenthood, said in 2008 that when Planned Parenthood failed to get the federal government to defund abstinence programs, they pushed for the states to do it.  During a Ford Hall Forum in Boston on May 28, 2008, Richards was asked about abstinence-based education:  "You said that this teaching of abstinence is 10 years old?  And how did that get passed?" a member of the crowd questioned.

Town hall anger fuels GOP bid to defund Planned Parenthood.  Town hall meetings held over the August break have driven conservatives in the House and Senate to ramp up their efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, which could make passing a critical funding bill this month difficult for Republican leaders.  Some of the conservative Republicans who huddled in a conference call last week tell the Washington Examiner that unless funding legislation strips money from Planned Parenthood, they'll vote against it, even if it is just a short-term bill.

2,000 Dem Staffers Invited to Screening of Planned Parenthood Videos; Only Three Watch — 'Horror Is Hard to Look At'.  The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List invited some 2,000 Democrat staffers to attend a screening Thursday of the nine undercover videos that have been released by the Center for Medical Progress showing top medical officials with Planned Parenthood Federation of America discussing the sale of body parts of aborted babies.  Fewer than 10 Democrat staffers showed up out of the some 2,000 Democrat staffers invited, and only three actually watched the videos — just two of whom watched all of the 90-plus minutes of video footage.

Planned Parenthood gets $1M in ObamaCare grants.  The Obama administration on Wednesday [9/2/2015] awarded more than $1 million in grants to Planned Parenthood to help promote ObamaCare, a move that is drawing GOP criticism at a time when the healthcare provider is under congressional investigation.  Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) blasted the White House's decision as "unconscionable" in light of allegations of illegal activity in the health provider's fetal tissue program, which has prompted key Republicans to call for a total defunding of the organization.  "A growing body of evidence suggests that Planned Parenthood broke federal law and now the Obama administration is thumbing its nose at Congress and taxpayers by using this backdoor maneuver to boost funding for the scandal-ridden abortion giant," Black wrote in a statement Wednesday.

Fetal-Tissue Procurement Manager: The Baby, 'It Just Fell Out'.  In the latest undercover investigative video of Planed Parenthood, a tissue procurement manager reveals that in some abortions, particularly with women who've had several births, the aborted child just falls out of the birth canal intact, although "the whole point is not to have a live birth."  The procurement manager, Perrin Larton with Advanced BioScience Resources, also reveals that "most of the time it [the baby] is not intact," and adds that often the "abdomen is always ripped open" and the organs "just get ripped up," but when "we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that's good."  Advanced BioScience Resources (ABR) is one of the organizations that acquires human tissue, including that from aborted babies, and provides them to researchers, many of them funded by the National Institutes of Health, which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Kickbacks and Murder.  The sickening series of videos from Center for Medical Progress continues apace.  Today we get a look at the regime of payments and kickbacks endemic in the baby parts marketplace and troubling questions are raised about outright murder. [...] If the baby "just fell out," it would seem that means a live-birth, which as Larton says, misses the whole point of having an abortion.  The implication is clear, that the attending abortionist killed a baby that was very much alive and very much outside the mother.  The technical term for that is 'murder.'

New Planned Parenthood Video: Sometimes Intact Fetuses 'Just Fell Out'.  The Center for Medical Progress is out with another horrifying video exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting the organs from aborted fetuses for money.  One of the people that appears in this latest video is Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, whose sister was the health policy advisor for Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner until very recently.

Bombshell Letter Accuses Planned Parenthood of Stonewalling Law Enforcement.  The Center for Medical Progress delivered a blistering letter to Congressional leadership today [8/31/2015] accusing Planned Parenthood of violating numerous federal laws and of stonewalling law enforcement who may be investing charges against the abortion giant.  The letter is a response to a letter Cecil Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, sent to Congressional leaders last week making charges against CMP and its founder David Daleiden.  Daleiden's letter today turns Richards' letter against her.

Welcome to the United States of Alice.  As we slide further from what is good, beautiful, and true — from a sustainable, civilized culture — is it more shocking or predictable to learn that Planned "Parenthood" has been blithely selling body parts from aborted babies for profit for at least 15 years, according to an ABC News 20/20 investigation?  The organization scavenges from late-term abortions and even live-born infants.  After being exposed again in July, the organization's defense was to claim it facilitates the donation of human "tissue to scientific research that can help lead to medical breakthroughs... with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards."  Sounds like the Nuremberg defense.

No, The Planned Parenthood Videos Have Not Been 'Deceptively Edited'.  Good news, abortion fans!  Turns out the hours and hours and hours of footage showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of baby limbs and organs can officially be discounted and dismissed.  According to a report sent to Congress yesterday [8/27/2015], the videos are "heavily edited" and "inaccurate."  Whew!  Finally, we can revert back to completely ignoring the continued holocaust of helpless, innocent children.  What a relief! [...] Or maybe not.  Despite the claim, reported as fact, that the videos are "totally manipulated" and "altered," making them essentially worthless as evidence, the truth remains exactly the same.  Planned Parenthood sells dead baby parts.  This is a fact, and it has not been even remotely debunked.

Planned Parenthood admits it manipulates rules on fetal organ sales to maximize profit.  In a letter to Congress intended to defend its practices and attack its hidden-video critics, Planned Parenthood wound up lending credence to accusations that it manipulates rules on selling fetal organs to maximize profit.  Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admitted in an 11-page letter Thursday [8/27/2015] that its affiliates have accepted payments ranging from $45 to $60 "per tissue specimen" from abortions, but said that they were reimbursements to cover costs, which federal law allows.

Planned Parenthood Provides the Perfect Cover for Rape and Child Abuse.  A recent investigation of Planned Parenthood in Alabama says they failed to report the rape of a minor to whom they aborted two children in four months.

Hillary Clinton Says You Are A Terrorist if You Want to Defund Planned Parenthood.  So, have the video exposes of Planned Parenthood stirred your disgust and caused you to want to work to have our various governments defund Planned Parenthood?  Well, Hillary says YOU are a terrorist.

Planned Parenthood: "That Was a Dead Premature Baby Pretending to Be an Aborted Fetus."  Planned Parenthood wants you to know that wasn't a fetus but a 19-week stillborn baby that they would have gladly killed if paid.  A recent news story shows how Planned Parenthood is pretending that the videos catching them in their ghoulish, Hannibalesqe commerce are fraudulent.  Based on the high risk they are taking in their PR strategy, we can deduce they must be really worried!

If Abortion Is OK, then Why Shouldn't Women Conceive In Order to Sell Livers and Brains?  Supposedly there is some vast difference between a stillborn baby and an aborted fetus.  But if Planned Parenthood is really so confident of that "fact" (which is really just a stupid lie), then why don't they go all the way?

Colorado won't investigate Planned Parenthood.  Colorado will not join at least 10 other states investigating Planned Parenthood over allegations by a pro-life group that the abortion provider illegally trafficked in fetal body parts.  Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman says state law requires the investigation be conducted by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, or CDPHE, which told 9NEWS Tuesday [8/25/2015] that it has no plans to investigate Planned Parenthood.

Republicans should stop wasting time attacking Planned Parenthood.  Several Republican governors have moved to cut off funds, including Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, a state with just two Planned Parenthood clinics that don't even perform abortions.  Energizing the fight, which threatens to complicate this fall's federal budget negotiations and could lead to a government shutdown, are notorious sting videos from the so-called Center for Medical Progress targeting Planned Parenthood officials.  But for all the outcry the videos have caused, they reveal nothing that changes the substance of the debate over abortion.

The Editor offers a line-by-line rebuttal:
Even if the Lousiana Planned Parenthood clinics do not perform abortions (and how do we know they don't?), they can still provide referrals and share funding with other Planned Parenthood clinics.  The Washington Post writer invokes the low-level terrorism of a government shutdown, as if that would be a bad thing.  All fifty states have governments, and the only people worried about a government shutdown are those who get paychecks and handouts from the feds.  Send all the "non-essential personnel" home permanently if Planned Parenthood is that important to them.  The Washington Post writer mentions "notorious sting videos."  The videos aren't notorious, it is the baby-killing butcher shop depicted in the videos that's notorious.  The videos might be characterized as a "sting," yet a sting doesn't usually catch people doing what they are not inclined to do.  The videos have merely exposed that which has gone on in secret for years, aided by the silence of the news media on this gruesome subject.  The claim that the videos "reveal nothing that changes the substance of the debate" is a vicious canard:  The debate was suppressed and silenced for years, and the general public was indifferent about abortion until they found out what an abortion really is.  Now the public (unless they get their information from network TV news) knows that abortion clinics kill viable babies, cut them up, and sell their organs and body parts — if not whole babies.  At the end of the excerpt above, I stopped reading the Washington Post article, but I'm confident that the rest of it was similarly deceptive and misleading.

Born alive? 'Intact specimens' in new abortion video.  The new video reveals the stunning possibility that some aborted babies are being legally "born alive."  Earlier videos have revealed Planned Parenthood executives callously negotiating for the best price for the remains of the unborn.  One executive fretted about being "low-balled" and suggested if the prices should be higher, they could be adjusted.  She was the same executive who said, "I want a Lamborghini."  The newest video, the eighth in the CMP series, was released after a judge in California ruled Friday [8/21/2015] that the organization had a First Amendment right to release it.

Questions Every Planned Parenthood Supporter Should Have To Answer.  [Scroll down]  If a baby is outside the womb, with lungs, a beating heart, and a functioning brain, is it alive?  And if it is, is killing that baby morally wrong?  If not, do you support the unlimited right of women to dismember viable fetuses whenever they want for whatever reason they like?  If so, what is the limit?  Before 20 weeks?  Before 30 weeks?  A week before the delivery date?  Before the umbilical cord is removed?  When does the child deserve protection?  (The position of most elected Democrats, incidentally, is never.)  Do you believe it's moral for a Planned Parenthood technician to cut through the face of a healthy fetus in order to harvest his organs?  If so, do you believe taxpayers should be funding this practice?  What is the moral difference between killing a viable fetus and a five-day old child?

StemExpress CEO Laughs: 'I've Seen Really Rampant, Rampant Problems with Bacteria in Certain Clinics'.  A transcript released by Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden features StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer — who purchased most of her company's aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood clinics — laughing about the unsanitary conditions in some of those clinics.

7th Planned Parenthood Video Exposes Illegal Partial-Birth Abortion Activity.  So far, the undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress have revealed that Planned Parenthood is illegally profiting from the sale of fetal body parts, a felony.  Now, there is substantial evidence the abortion provider is manipulating its procedures and performing illegal partial-birth abortions in order to ensure the fetuses come out intact for sale.  Due to the illegal profit incentive, Planned Parenthood stands to make much more money from delivering intact, whole fetuses.  The new video released Wednesday [8/19/2015] shows Planned Parenthood leadership and its affiliates explaining precisely how they modify the process to get these intact fetuses — it doesn't get much more incriminating than that.

If the Satanists are in agreement with Planned Parenthood, what does that tell you?
Satan worshipers drench women with milk in Planned Parenthood counter-protest.  Satan worshipers launched a counter-protest against pro-lifers outside the Detriot and Ferndale, Michigan Planned Parenthood locations Saturday [8/22/2015].  Clad in black robes, members of the Satanic Temple of Detriot drenched bound women with milk, simulating water-boarding to "illustrate the theocratic agenda imposed upon female bodies."  The milk symbolized breast milk, one of the protest organizers explained on Facebook.

No funding for Planned Parenthood — no problem.  Starting in 2012 Texas excluded Planned Parenthood clinics from the state family planning program.  Instead, state health funding went to other facilities that did not perform abortions.  Much has been made of a Texas Health and Human Services Commission report that found a 54 percent decline in claims submitted for contraceptives between 2011 and 2013.  However, the most important metric is not contraceptive claims, but rather unintended pregnancies.  And in Texas, both the birth rate and the abortion rate have declined since 2011.  In short, even after the state of Texas defunded Planned Parenthood, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that the unintended pregnancy rate increased.

Questions Every Planned Parenthood Supporter Should Have To Answer.  Question for the media:  Do you believe there are two legitimate sides to the abortion debate?  If so, should your theoretically unbiased editors and reporters be accepting awards from the best-funded and best-connected advocates for abortion in the country?  Planned Parenthood handed out its Maggie Awards for Media Excellence earlier this week (named after the xenophobe quackologist Margaret Sanger), honoring 16 journalists from mainstream outlets like Buzzfeed, Yahoo! Health and MSNBC, for their work shilling for the group.  Color me skeptical, but does anyone believe a senior health editor who accepts this honor can be trusted to ask questions that matter about the groups she covers?

CMP Releases Video #8 — Stem Express Purchasing and Selling "Fully Intact" Babies.  In the video, Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, is shown in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood.  She laughs about how shippers of the aborted babies would give a warning to lab workers to expect such a baby.  "Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we've done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety," she says.

Court Removes Injunction on Planned Parenthood Video, New Video Immediately Released.  Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O'Donnell ruled on Friday afternoon [8/21/2015] the Center for Medical Progress has First Amendment rights to release videos it covertly took of StemExpress executives talking about buying aborted baby tissue from Planed Parenthood.  Almost immediately afterwards, CMP released a new video that among other thing showed the StemExpress CEO joking about receiving dead babies from Planned Parenthood (over lunch).  This latest video is only two minutes long and is more of a trailer of things to come.

StemExpress CEO: Techs 'Freak Out' When Receiving Whole Baby Heads in the Mail.  A Federal Judge lifted the temporary restraining order blocking the Center for Medical Progress from releasing a video taken secretly with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer.  As the order was lifted, CMP immediately released a transcript of the conversation in advance of StemExpress trying to get another restraining order.  David Daleiden, founder of CMP, told Breitbart News he is working feverishly to cut a new video.  The transcript paints a graphic picture.

Here Are the Names of More Companies That Donated to Planned Parenthood.  The 2013-14 annual report for Planned Parenthood of Southern New England — an affiliate of the national organization that operates in Connecticut and Rhode Island — lists companies that have contributed to the organization.  The revelation comes weeks after Planned Parenthood removed the names of 41 corporate donors from its website following a Daily Signal investigation.  Three of those companies — Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox — publicly objected to their inclusion on Planned Parenthood's list.

Planned Parenthood losing social-media war sparked by undercover videos.  Planned Parenthood for America is losing the social-media war in the aftermath of undercover videos on its fetal-tissue donations from abortions, according to an analysis released Friday [8/21/2015].  NetBase, a Silicon Valley firm that analyzes social-media trends, found that "net sentiment" toward Planned Parenthood turned "decisively negative" after the July 14 release of the first video by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress.

Pro-Planned Parenthood Rally At Governor's Mansion in Louisiana Draws Paltry Crowd.  Around two dozen pro-Planned Parenthood protesters stood outside the governor's mansion in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Thursday [8/20/2015] to protest Governor Bobby Jindal's recent decision to have the abortion provider investigated and defunded.  When the Jindal administration caught wind of Planned Parenthood's plan to hold a protest in the pro-life governor's front yard, they came up with a brilliant plan to counter them.  Jindal had a huge screen set up outside the governor's mansion, and ran each of the seven disturbing expose videos of Planned Parenthood on a continuous loop for the duration of the protest.

Congressional Democrats probe group that revealed Planned Parenthood videos.  Congressional Democrats have opened their own investigation into the Planned Parenthood videos — but into the group that took the footage in which officials haggle over the prices of organs and discuss keeping a baby alive so his brain can be harvested.  The Center for Medical Progress may have broken federal laws in setting up a false-front company to secretly record Planned Parenthood employees talking about these and other practices, the Democrats say.

16 Journalists Accept Planned Parenthood Awards — Despite Horrifying Abortion Videos!  While the media stay away from the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood's trafficking of aborted baby parts, they are drawn to Planned Parenthood's annual media awards ceremony.  During Planned Parenthood's Maggie Awards for Media Excellence Tuesday night [8/18/2015], the abortion giant recognized 16 journalists for pushing "reproductive rights."  From Buzzfeed and Yahoo! to MSNBC, MRC Culture compiled a list of several prominent media attendees — and found a picture announcing the winners.

Latest Planned Parenthood Video Exposes Potential Infanticide.  The seventh video from the Center for Medical Progress features testimony from Holly O'Donnell, a former procurement technician at StemExpress, a California company that — until recently — acquired (purchased?) aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood.  It's horrifying.  No, it's beyond horrifying.  It describes an act of infanticide that even America's barbaric child-killing legal regime defines as murder.

PPFA May Keep Aborted Babies Alive 'Until Their Hearts are Cut Out'.  Dr. Theresa Deisher is a world-renowned scientist in the field of stem cell research who holds patents after discovering adult stem cells in human hearts.  Deisher helped the pro-life activists who spent three years recording undercover videos and capturing documents and information showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts.  Now, in a new interview, Deisher says she has reviewed the information the activists collected and she is making a shocking claim that Planned Parenthood may be keeping some babies alive after the abortion procedure in order to better collect their organs for harvesting — such as their hearts.

7th Planned Parenthood Video Might Be Worst of All.  Today's episode:  How to secure a valuable intact "calvarium" (head; whole brains are rare and highly desirable).

Planned Parenthood threatens legal action against makers of videos.  Planned Parenthood is considering legal action against the pro-life organization that has released a series of secretly recorded videos scrutinizing the health provider's fetal tissue donation program.  In an exclusive interview with The Hill, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said she believes the videos are illegal and that her organization is "considering everything" in going after the Center for Medical Progress, the group behind the videos.

Now We Know Why Reporters Won't Cover The Planned Parenthood Videos.  Earlier this week, a seventh video detailing Planned Parenthood's gruesome organ-trafficking operation was released.  In it, a former procurement technician who worked with the organization described how Planned Parenthood harvested a brain from a baby boy whose heart was still beating.  If you use BuzzFeed as your primary source of news, however, you'd know nothing about the story.  The same goes for the video in which a top Planned Parenthood official said she needed a good price on aborted baby organs because, "I want a Lamborghini."  That little detail was also never reported.  In fact, it's been over a month since BuzzFeed published any standalone stories featuring details from newly released undercover videos.

Rep. Mia Love breaks down in tears over Planned Parenthood videos.  Freshman Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, had to wipe away tears while talking about the undercover Planned Parenthood videos on the Fox Business network Wednesday night [8/19/2015].  "It's our job to protect those who do not have a voice to protect themselves, and to see what is actually happening to babies while they're still alive, I mean, it's horrific," said Love.

New Planned Parenthood Horror Video: Whistleblower Says Baby Born, Heart Beating When Killed.  The Center for Medical Progress released video #7 this morning [8/19/2015], and if you can get through the entire thing without crying and becoming nauseous, you are made of sterner stuff than most.  Today's video continues the interview with former StemExpress procurement technician Holly O'Donnell, who describes an instance when she saw her supervisor tap the chest of "the most gestated fetus and closest thing to a baby I've seen," and the heart started beating.

Planned Parenthood Clinic Cut Through Dead Baby's Face to Get to His Intact Brain.  In the latest video produced by the Center for Medical Progress, Holly O'Donnell describes a medical technician using scissors to cut through the face of a newly aborted but nearly fully developed baby boy at a Planned Parenthood facility so that his intact brain could be extracted.

Latest Disgusting Planned Parenthood Expose Video Harvesting The Brain of Baby Born Alive.  The seventh expose video is out exposing the Mengele-like horrors that Planned Parenthood commits on a daily basis.  This time The Center for Medical Progress shows PP ripping the brain out of a baby born alive so that it can sell the organ to a research facility.  There is no doubt at all that Planned Parenthood is murdering babies for profit. [...] They are outright murdering babies born alive so they can sell human body parts and organs.  And, folks, YOUR taxes are going to pay for this horror show.

Planned Parenthood and the Eugenics Movement.  Today we're told there is no other way to achieve the research results we desire, because fetal tissue is a "uniquely rich source" of stem cells, which provide invaluable clues to human development.  Second, we're led to believe that research on aborted babies will heal diseases, eradicate physical defects, and greatly enhance the human condition.  And finally, we're warned that prohibiting medical experimentation of this kind would mean "subordinating science to religion."

Arkansas ending Medicaid payments to Planned Parenthood.  Arkansas is ending its Medicaid payments to Planned Parenthood, Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Friday [8/14/2015], despite warnings federal officials have given other states that such a move could violate the law.

Obama Administration Threatens States Attempting to Defund Planned Parenthood.  The Obama administration is threatening states attempting to defund Planned Parenthood — those trying to stop the flow of their Medicaid funds to the abortion provider — with potential violation of federal law and, ultimately, the cutting off of Medicaid funds to those states.

Flashback: Planned Parenthood lobbyist argues for killing babies born alive after failed abortion.  Even as a Philadelphia abortionist stands trial for murder for having severed the spinal cords of babies born alive, a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood is attempting to persuade Florida lawmakers that health providers presiding over botched abortions should finish what they started.

Do We Destroy Life to Enhance Life?  Years before Hitler wrote Mein Kampf, German scholars were advocating the killing of "worthless" people under the protection of the state.  On April 7, 1933 the Nazis eliminated "long established ethical and administrative public supervisory bodies" when they introduced the "law for the Prevention of Genetically Diseased Offspring."  Euthanasia and experimentation on human subjects became the Nazi norm.  The purveyors of Nazism saw their system as "applied biology."  Can one draw a parallel with the Nazi "applied biology" ideology and the recent revelations of Planned Parenthood's selling of baby parts?

StemExpress cuts ties with Planned Parenthood after 6th video challenges consent process.  I believe this is known as cutting your losses.  Caught up in a firestorm of controversy over its connections to Planned Parenthood and facing questions from a former employee over whether informed consent was given for organ harvesting in their clinics, StemExpress said adios to its partner today.

Human tissue firm cuts ties with Planned Parenthood after videos.  StemExpress, one of the tissue companies that works with Planned Parenthood, is cutting its ties with the women's health organization after a series of sting videos that have prompted congressional inquiries.  "We value our various partnerships but, due to the increased questions that have arisen over the past few weeks, we feel it prudent to terminate activities with Planned Parenthood," the company said in a statement.

Obama Admin Threatens States That Defunded Planned Parenthood.  Alabama and Louisiana of course had made the decision to defund Planned Parenthood after a series of secretly recorded videos came out exposing that the group sells babies' body parts, among other disturbing practices.  But is what these states are doing really illegal?

Planned Parenthood workers, PACs donated $25M to Dems since 2000.  The financial ties between Planned Parenthood and Democrats run deep, with the taxpayer-funded women's health care and abortion provider's employees and political arms donating at least $25 million to party lawmakers over the past 15 years, according to a FoxNews.com analysis.  The money, which flowed through an extensive web of Planned Parenthood employees, political action committees and soft-money donors accounts for 99 percent of all political donations linked to Planned Parenthood, leaving little doubt about the partisan preference of the organization.

Court Bars Stemexpress from Access to Journalistic Materials Used to Expose Planned Parenthood's Sale of Aborted Baby Parts.  The Superior Court of the State of California ruled Thursday [8/13/2015] that biomedical company StemExpress has no right to access the journalistic materials of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) which were used to expose Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling the aborted baby body parts to such companies.

Planned Parenthood's Grisly Practices Worse Than Massive Abortion.  Yes, there were "legal" abortions being performed in a few states prior to the Supreme Court's 1973 ruling. States where abortion had been "legalized" were classified by many as outcasts or worse.  But once the 7-2 Court decision destroyed all state laws banning the practice, the number of abortions skyrocketed.  Since 1973, the lives of more than 57 million infants have been snuffed out.  The largest U.S.-based agency committing this crime, with facilities throughout the nation, is Planned Parenthood.  Not only has the highest court in our nation given a green light to these baby killers, Planned Parenthood receives federal funding that fuels such work.  In the single year of 2014, for instance, Planned Parenthood received $528 million taken from taxpayers, many of whom intensely abhor the practice.  In that year, the number snuffed out in the womb by Planned Parenthood totaled 327,000.  These were all live infants needing only a few more weeks of not being molested before they could exist outside their mother's womb.  That Americans allow this to occur, and allow themselves to be taxed to fund it, is a severe indictment of our entire nation.

Planned Parenthood scandal slipping off media's radar.  Planned Parenthood's organ harvesting scandal is fading fast from media's focus, even as the pro-life activist group that broke the story continues to release jarring undercover video.  The front pages of top news websites, including Yahoo and the Huffington Post, made no mention Wednesday [8/12/2015] of the latest video from the Center for Medical Progress.  The sixth and latest installment from the group shows a former Planned Parenthood affiliate discussing salvaging fetal organs from unsuspecting mothers.

6th Shocking Video Catches Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Babies Without Patient Consent.  The pro-life advocates behind the five shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 6th video today [8/12/2015] that shows how the abortion business sells body parts of aborted babies without patient consent.  The video features Holly O'Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a "procurement technician" at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012.  That's the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places.

How Is 'Stealing' Baby Body Parts 'Women's Healthcare?'.  Planned Parenthood and its supporters have insisted that it engages in "women's healthcare."  But in the latest undercover investigative video exposing the taxpayer-funded organization's practice of harvesting aborted baby parts for potential sale to biomedical companies, a former StemExpress procurement technician reveals that when she needed certain body parts, Planned Parenthood staff would sometimes "just take what they wanted... and these mothers don't know."

Former Organ Buyer: Planned Parenthood 'Just Wanted Their Money'.  A former procurement specialist told pro-life activists that Planned Parenthood and organ companies looked at positive pregnancy tests as "opportunities" to cash in.  Holly O'Donnell, a former technician with organ tissue company StemExpress, took activists through the day-to-day operations of her former career.  She described walking in to clinics with a checklist of body parts and ages of the aborted babies.  She would then cross that list with the scheduled abortions for that day.

Donald Trump Is Planned Parenthood's Favorite Republican.  The GOP front-runner said in an interview Tuesday [8/11/2015] that he supported the status quo when it comes to Planned Parenthood.  The group couldn't be more pleased.

Sixth Planned Parenthood Video: Organs Harvested Without Patient's Consent.  The sixth investigative Center for Medical Progress video, released today, does not include the graphic images some of the others do, but it may be the most disturbing one yet.  Despite Planned Parenthood's insistence that women are fully informed before human organs and tissues are procured from their abortions, this video makes clear that that is not always the case.  The video features Holly O'Donnell, the pro-life licensed phlebotomist from the first installment, describing the uncaring, assembly-line approach to abortions at the Planned Parenthood clinic she was assigned to in Fresno.

The Planned Parenthood Videos' Powerful Argument For Unborn Humanity.  The horror genre, whether in print or on the screen, need not look for original story-telling.  Instead, it can turn to the series of undercover videos the Center for Medical Progress is releasing.  These videos, often with gruesome images, record Planned Parenthood officials as they discuss obtaining and selling aborted fetal body parts.  The first video sets the stage for all that have followed. [...] Subsequent videos have only heightened the horror, pairing Nucatola's clinical description of butchery with images to match.  This effect on the viewer displays a powerful argument in favor of unborn life.  Across many different viewpoints, we recognize that part of personhood involves having a human body.

Planned Parenthood videos and the killing of innocents.  The recent broadcast of videotapes taken of persons employed at Planned Parenthood — the prolific and notorious abortion provider — has brought the issue of abortion to the national consciousness again and front and center to the Republican presidential primary campaign.  The tapes were made secretly by a pro-life group determined to show to the world the dark side of Planned Parenthood's use of federal funds.  What the world saw was terrifying and damning.  The tapes are difficult to watch, just as any discussion of human slaughter is difficult to watch.  If you have seen these tapes, you witnessed physicians and others talking about the profits Planned Parenthood is making in the sale of baby body parts, even though such sales are criminal under federal law.

Four Planned Parenthood Centers Cited In Florida Probe, Three Ordered To Stop Second-Trimester Abortions.  After the Center for Medical Progress released those gruesome videos reportedly showing the illegal sale of body party from aborted babies, Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued a statewide review of his state's Planned Parenthood facilities.  After all 16 were inspected, four were issued citations.  Three were conducting procedures that were outside of their licenses (a.k.a late-term abortions) and the last one was improperly logging the disposal of infant remains.

Former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director Explains the Tissue Donation Process.  For eight years, Abby Johnson, who used to work for a branch of Planned Parenthood, didn't just witness the fetal tissue donation process — she participated in it.  During her tenure at a southeast Texas clinic — the same location featured in the fifth undercover video shot by the Center for Medical Progress — Johnson said she would "coerce" women to sign up for studies, then reap the financial benefits.  In 2009, a year after being named "Employee of the Year" at her clinic, Johnson, 35, said she witnessed a doctor performing an abortion on an ultrasound and quit her job.

Alabama makes three states that defunded Planned Parenthood this week.  Alabama became the third state in a week to pull state funding for Planned Parenthood on Thursday [8/6/2015].  Gov. Robert Bentley, a medical doctor, tweeted that life from "conception to birth and beyond" is important to him.  "I respect human life, and I do not want Alabama to be associated with an organization that does not," the two-term Republican tweeted.

70% of Americans know little to nothing at all about Planned Parenthood videos.  The liberal mainstream media may have lost their monopoly, but they retain an oligopolistic control over the mindshare of the American public.  By choosing to minimize or completely ignore the five videos of released so far of shocking conduct by Planned Parenthood officials, the American public remains overwhelmingly in the dark about the haggling over price in the sale of body parts from fetuses, aka human beings.

Planned Parenthood To CMP: Stop Keeping Our Depravity In The Public Eye.  [T]here is very much a purpose behind the slow leak of the videos.  It certainly maximizes the impact of Planned Parenthood's baby harvesting scheme on the public conscience, as well as keeping the organization in the negative spotlight of their own making.  Moreover, the slow leak provides no opportunity for Planned Parenthood to brush it all away, ignore it, or whitewash their barbaric butchery.  They are kept off balance and unable to be in control and make a preemptive strike before the next video is released.  Neatly, control remains beyond their well-financed reach.

The Human Fetus As Garbage: a Necessary Comparison to Nazism.  The efficacy of fetuses in medical research is debated.  Various news sources, depending on their editorial stance toward abortion, depict aborted fetuses as providing promising avenues for research.  Other news sources downplay the value of human fetuses for medical research.  This dichotomy indicates that aborted fetuses' value to medical research is not a slam dunk.  If aborted fetuses were inarguably necessary for a medical breakthrough that could save millions of lives, Planned Parenthood would have said so by now.

Planned Parenthood backlash opens Pandora's Box in Hill budget debate.  Dozens of conservatives are demanding congressional leaders slash all federal money for Planned Parenthood in an emergency spending package.  The Senate failed to secure a supermajority Monday [8/3/2015] just to debate a standalone bill to strip Planned Parenthood of federal dollars.  "At some point we'll negotiate the way forward," McConnell predicted of an autumn spending accord.  But the Pandora's Box has been opened.

No One's Buying Cecile Richards' Denials.  In an op-ed last week in the Washington Post, Cecile Richards goes out of her way to evade the whole question of the current controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood.  Yes, we get it.  We recognize the standard talking points.  Planned Parenthood wants us to believe they provide indispensable health services, and that we in the pro-life movement want to stop that.  Again, they are the victims and we are the villains.  Notice what you do not find in Cecile's article:  any mention of the term "body parts" or of the brains, hearts, livers and other organs that Planned Parenthood harvests and sells.  Yet we see these parts of pre-born children so clearly in the most recent video.

The Planned Parenthood Horror Story.  Babies being born alive, only to be butchered for their parts. Harvesting tiny hearts, brains and livers. Fetal organs being transplanted into lab rats for research.  Cracking skulls and dismemberment.  Horror shows are usually like that:  repulsive, disturbing, barbaric and sickening.  Except that Planned Parenthood's horror show is not a movie, but a real nightmare that keeps getting worse. [...] If only it had been a movie.  But you might say, isn't organ donation always gross?  Shouldn't we allow women to donate fetal remains to science?  Here's the difference.  Organ donation involves a death which could not be prevented, a death by accident or natural causes.  Even if no laws were broken, here you have purposefully destroyed life, butchered the potential for life.  The videos cut through the claim, "this is actually laudable" to expose the truth, "this is actually horrific."

The Real Planned Parenthood.  About three out of every ten pregnancies taken care of by Planned Parenthood are those of black mothers.  That's a bunch of black fetuses, um... babies.  In black neighborhoods, most all their service is to black women.  Remember that fact.  All you have to do to send one of those black fetuses, um... babies, to the dumpster is send Planned Parenthood a check for about $500.

Thanks To Media Blackout, Most Americans Are In The Dark About Planned Parenthood Videos.  The vast majority of Americans — a whopping 70 percent — have heard little to nothing about videos showing the involvement of Planned Parenthood in the harvesting and trafficking of human fetal organs.  The revelations from the videos have led to federal and state investigations, calls to end the $530 million a year in taxpayer funding, and questions from human rights activists about the propriety of the practice.  Yet the media have so struggled to cover the story, much less cover it well, that one third of the public has heard literally nothing about them while another 38 percent have heard only a little.  Democrats are particularly uninformed on the videos, with more than three out of four reporting they have heard little to nothing about the videos.

More examples of important stories that have been actively suppressed by the news media.

For "Women's Health": Human Fetus Brains Sold to Labs for Transplantation into Rats.  One thing is clear from the videos and media that have emerged in this recent scandal — we are not dealing with a one dimension "pro-choice/pro-life" debate.  Instead, there is a dark organization inside an industrial complex Americans have not dared to contemplate or uncover.  Secret scientific research, genetic engineering, synthetic DNA, vaccines made from human fetal cell tissue... and a host of other uses for human organs, limbs, brains and tissue.  The "ethics" behind closed doors, where doctors and clinics are apparently all too willing to break the rules and allow human experimentation, are projected into the medical system collective that we are all being pushed into.  Decisions about the value of human life and how far the State can go in deciding what is best for you are being weighed... your will see it in the hidden costs of Obamacare, where life becomes cheap but the bills for services rendered remain sky high.

Report: Aborted Baby Parts Being Used to Grow Human Organs in Rodents.  Medical researchers are growing human organs in mice by implanting dead human baby organs into rodents, a practice that stands to gain greater scrutiny in light of undercover videos exposing what appears to be Planned Parenthood affiliates selling aborted baby parts to medical procurement companies like StemExpress.  In a fourth video released from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), Planned Parenthood personnel can be seen sifting through aborted baby parts allegedly to show what parts can be salvaged and sold.

U.S. Government Made 'Humanized' Mice With Tissue from Babies 17-to 22-Weeks Gestational Age.  A group of government researchers working for a National Institutes of Health laboratory in Montana made "humanized mice" by implanting the mice with tissues cut from human livers and thymuses taken from babies at 17 to 22 weeks gestational age.  The researchers then published a paper describing how they constructed this particular type of "humanized" mouse, saying they hoped their description of the process would help other researchers seeking to make such mice in the future.

The Editor says...
The ghoulish process of dismembering little babies is an abomination.  Planned Parenthood is attempting to offset the abhorrence of this procedure through a number of false claims:  First, that the procedure is "safe, legal and rare," and second, that the fetal tissues harvested in this manner is used in research that might lead to a cure for cancer.  (They ignore a known link between abortion and breast cancer.)  Even if the researchers find a cure for cancer (which will never be found as long as "cancer research" is so well funded), the price is far too high.

Bakin' Baby Syndrome.  The fifth in an apparent series of twelve Planned Parenthood undercover videos shows Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discussing how to manipulate the abortion procedure in order to ensure the "fetus" is delivered "intact" and thus able to be cannibalized for body parts.  As Ms Farrell puts it, if a client "has a specific need for a certain portion of the products of conception and we bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this.  So we deviate from our standard in order to do that."  In other words, their priority is not a "woman's health needs" but a cleanly delivered "fetus" with the relevant "portion of the products of conception" intact — the leg, the liver, the heart, the lung, whatever it is the client has had "baked" into the contract.  This is in itself a crime:  You're not supposed to manipulate the abortion — and potentially cause more pain and discomfort to the woman — in order to get clean, sellable baby parts.

How Democrats Defend the Indefensible — and Why Republicans are No Match for Them.  The Republican congressional leadership's embarrassing failure to open fire on the human body-part wholesalers of Planned Parenthood, a group that is at the very center of gravity of the American Left, is symptomatic of a larger, probably deadly pathogen flowing in the veins of the once-proud party of Lincoln.  The collapse of the barely-there effort this week to deprive Planned Parenthood of taxpayer support for its ongoing, ever-expanding assembly line of horrors in which the group's leaders harvest human fetuses before their time in order to profit from the unquestionably unlawful profit-driven trafficking of tiny livers, eyeballs, hearts, kidneys, and brains of human fetuses, was preordained.

Harris DA investigating Planned Parenthood.  Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said Wednesday her office has begun a criminal investigation into the Houston branch of Planned Parenthood after the release earlier this week of a video showing an agency executive discussing the preservation of organs of aborted fetuses.  Anderson, who described the video as being "disturbing," said she has reviewed it, and said prosecutors and investigators in the her office have done so as well.

New Hampshire Defunds Planned Parenthood, Rejects $600K Contract.  New Hampshire legislators stripped the state's six Planned Parenthood clinics of state funds Wednesday [8/5/2015], deleting roughly one third of their public funding.  The state's Republican-led Executive Council rejected a $639,000 funding contract with Planned Parenthood, reported local ABC affiliate WMUR9.  The Council cited a series of undercover videos in the meeting, which show top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and participating in the harvesting, dissection, and distribution of aborted fetuses.

Executive Council rejects Planned Parenthood funding.  New Hampshire's Republican-led Executive Council rejected $639,000 in state funding for Planned Parenthood along party lines Wednesday [8/5/2015] amid a renewed national debate over whether the organization should receive public money.

Clergy Advocacy Board Says Planned Parenthood Is 'Doing God's Work'.  Planned Parenthood's Clergy Advocacy Board released a statement Tuesday [8/4/2015] condemning the pro-life advocacy group that produced a series of videos appearing to show Planned Parenthood officials and employees haggling over the sale of body parts harvested from "intact fetal cadavers," while sifting through dishes of tiny organs and limbs.  According to the board, the taxpayer-funded abortion giant is simply "doing God's work."  A series of videos released over the past two weeks by the Center for Medical Progress shows Planned Parenthood officials discussing the transfer of tissue and body parts from babies who have been aborted, some as late as 18 to 22 weeks' gestation, to people posing as buyers.

Depressing poll of the day: Public opinion of Planned Parenthood basically unchanged after videos.  Barely a flutter in the polls despite weeks of news about PP doctors chattering about selling dismembered baby parts.  There seemed to be two likely explanations for that.  One:  The word wasn't getting out to the broader public.  This is a story that most mainstream reporters are verrrrry uncomfortable with given how it challenges the orthodoxy of their preferred political party.  They're not going to cover it, and you can't move the polls if the only place to find this story is on right-wing blogs.  Two:  Even among those who have heard about the videos, the absence of any smoking gun of criminal behavior is giving PP fans a cognitive "out" to continue supporting them.  Sure, they'll crush a baby's chest cavity just right to preserve the liver for sale, and sure, it's unclear precisely how well informed its patients are about that, but there's no law against it if it's for research purposes, is there?  Well, there you go.  What's on TV?

Patrick calls for criminal investigation into Houston Planned Parenthood clinic.  Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is asking Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson to open a criminal investigation into Planned Parenthood after a group of ant-abortion [sic] activists released a video of a staff member at a Houston clinic discussing how to preserve the remains of aborted fetuses.  The video is the fifth in a series released by the California-based Center for Medical Progress as part of its campaign to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells fetal tissue to scientists.

PolitiFact and Planned Parenthood: Erroneous Fact Checks All the Way Down.  Planned Parenthood now finds itself being heavily criticized after being caught on tape brokering fetal body parts.  Fortunately for them, they have no shortage of allies in the media, including PolitiFact.  Fox Business reporter Sandra Smith recently said on air "Almost 95 percent of all (Planned Parenthood) pregnancy services were abortions."  On Tuesday, PunditFact, a division of PolitiFact, rated it false.  PolitiFact concedes the source of this statistic is Planned Parenthood's own annual report.  If you take the number of services listed in the report, exclude the ones that don't apply to women who aren't pregnant, you do indeed get a figure that showing that over 94 percent of pregnant women who go to Planned Parenthood get an abortion.

Fifth Planned Parenthood Video Released — Offering Sales of "Intact Babies".  It was suspected the undercover video's contained discussion of Planned Parenthood discussing "fully intact fetuses", which would be prima facie evidence of born alive infants.  This disturbing aspect prompted a biotech company, Stem Express, to file a motion with a federal judge to block any further video release.

Planned Parenthood Video: 'It Was a Twin ... Intestines Are Here,' Eyeballs 'Are So Easy ... They Come Out, Like, Firmer'.  In the fifth and latest investigative video of Planned Parenthood's harvesting of aborted baby organs and tissue, officials with the organization discuss altering the abortion process to get "intact, fetal cadavers," and help to identify body parts from aborted twins, including intestines, brain, lung, arm and "orbits," eyeballs.

New Video Shows Planned Parenthood Discussing Selling Intact Aborted Babies.  A video just released by the Center for Medical Progress taken undercover in Texas shows a Planned Parenthood research director discussing the sale of whole intact aborted babies to a company that resells them to medical researchers.  David Daleiden, head of Center for Medical Progress, claims this is clear evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of Planned Parenthood.

Founder of Group Behind Undercover Videos: Planned Parenthood Hasn't Refuted Charges of Partial Birth Abortions.  On CNN this morning [8/4/2015] Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden said, "After three and a half weeks Planned Parenthood has still not addressed the claim about partial birth abortions which is a very clear description given by their senior director of medical services from the very first video that we produced."

The 3 Percent Dodge.  Planned Parenthood, embroiled in a scandal over secret videos capturing its cavalier dismemberment of unborn babies and sale of their body parts, insists that abortion is only 3 percent of what it does. [...] The 3 percent figure is an artifice and a dodge, but even taking it on its own terms, it's not much of a defense.  Only Planned Parenthood would think saying that they only kill babies 3 percent of the time is something to brag about.

New Planned Parenthood Transcript: Nurse Admits It's 'Fun' To Dissect Fetuses.  The transcript accompanying the latest undercover Planned Parenthood video has an employee of the group admit she finds it "fun" to dissect fetuses for their organs and would "enjoy" the opportunity to do it on behalf of fetal tissue purchasers.  The exchange isn't included in the 15-minute edited video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), but is instead buried deep in the 119-page transcript accompanying it (a full-footage version of the video hasn't been released yet).  In the exchange, Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, admits she and her co-worker would find it enjoyable if a tissue buyer wanted them to dissect dead fetuses for parts.

Latest Planned Parenthood sting video features research boss promising intact fetuses.  The Center for Medical Progress on Tuesday [8/4/2015] released a fifth undercover video in its campaign targeting Planned Parenthood, this time focusing on a facility in Texas.  In this latest edited 16-minute installment, the head of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, is seen bragging about her branch's track record of fetal tissue sales and its ability to deliver fully intact fetal organs to clients.  On April 9, 2015, actors posing as representatives of a human biologics company met with Farrell at the Planned Parenthood center in Houston to discuss the prospect of obtaining intact fetal cadavers for the purposes of medical research.

Which Senators Voted to Make You Pay for Abortion Harvesting?  You need to know who they are.  Despite a bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate's support for defunding the abortion giant (including Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-WV) and Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN)), these political pawns of Planned Parenthood filibustered to ensure the Culture of Death keeps getting its government handout.  Each of the Senators below voted to block legislation that would have stripped taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood — an abortion business that takes $500 million tax dollars, murders nearly 330,000 babies, and sells them for parts to pad its bottom line each and every year: [...]

Dear Starbucks, You Lost Me at Planned Parenthood.  Dear Starbucks, I am a Gold Card member of Starbucks.  I love your products and have for many years, specifically the grande mocha with coconut milk, no whip, extra hot.  That's my drink.  I am two stars away from receiving a free drink on my Gold Card.  I worked hard for that.  It's not easy to earn your rewards and your coffee ain't cheap.  But I almost have a free mocha out of it and I was looking forward to it.  Then I discovered that Starbucks is subsidizing Planned Parenthood, which has recently been caught on video tearing apart the bodies of fully formed human beings and selling off their organs to the highest bidder.  So, not only does my tax money go to fund these inhuman butchers, but now my coffee money does, too.  Not anymore.

The Editor says...
The Editor has never been in a Starbuck's shop.

Where's The Proof Baby Tissue Trafficking Saves Lives?  This talking point has been rolled out repeatedly.  Every time [Cecile] Richards insists lives may be saved from the baby body parts trade, she never highlights an actual scientific discovery:  "What happens in this country, at Planned Parenthood and other hospitals is that, women in very few places are allowed to donate fetal tissue for life-saving medical research.  Research, you know, developing cures for Parkinson, even the Ebola vaccine."

Mike Lee's Terrific Planned Parenthood De-Fund Speech.  [Senator] Lee notes, with passionate articulation, that Planned Parenthood's actions are indefensible by people of goodwill, and he quotes Solzhenitsyn in making the point that the violence Planned Parenthood commits against the unborn is necessarily married to the lies it must tell — and accuses the Democrats of complicity in falsehood by continuing to support the unsupportable.  This might go down as one of the greatest speeches given on the Senate floor in recent years.  Mike Lee has emerged as perhaps the most thoughtful orator that body possesses, and we owe him gratitude for putting his talents to the service of such a just cause as that of the lives of the unborn.

5th Shocking Video Catches Planned Parenthood Official Selling "Fully Intact" Aborted Babies.  The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today [8/4/2015] that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells "fully intact" aborted babies.  The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the "fully intact" bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.

The Editor says...
Abortion is barbaric, whether the babies' organs are used for "life saving" medical research or they're being cooked and eaten.  (Maybe that's the subject of undercover video #37.)

Defund Planned Parenthood? Not so easy.  Republicans may find that defunding Planned Parenthood is harder than it looks.  Even if they manage to overcome the political obstacles — big ones like a Democratic filibuster, a presidential veto, or a battle royal over shutting down the government — they may still collide with Medicaid law.  The fight could leap from Congress to the courts.

Planned Parenthood, unequal justice and dark forces.  It is a topic that is not discussed and barely acknowledged, but exists deep in the bowels of the houses of power not just in the United States, but all throughout the West.  It has engulfed the political elite and their minions of both political parties, of those currently in power and out, and involves an equally corrupt media that goes well beyond complicity. [...] In the case of Planned Parenthood, the rabbit hole goes much deeper and ventures into places that are much darker, and much more sinister than people want to believe.  Practices that are conducted under layers of secrecy, and by people who are driven by the most evil of agendas.  They even laugh at their deluded defenders behind their backs as the defenders act like well-trained animals as they follow the playbook to the letter.

Senate fails to advance Planned Parenthood defund effort, setting up potential budget showdown with Democrats.  The Senate failed Monday to advance a Republican-led measure to halt federal aid to Planned Parenthood, but leaders of the GOP-controlled chamber appear ready to continue the fight, galvanized by a series of unsettling videos about the group.  The vote to bring debate on the bill was 53 against to 46 in favor.  The measure had not been expected to get the 60 votes needed to move it toward a final vote because Republicans needed several "yeas" from Democrats, who largely support Planned Parenthood.

Bobby Jindal just cut Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood in Louisiana.  Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) announced Monday [8/3/2015] he is cutting Medicaid funding for the state's two Planned Parenthood clinics.  The move comes in the midst of a Republican congressional push to defund the group after a controversial, covert video released by conservative activists last month showed Planned Parenthood discussing fetal tissue donations.  "Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life," the presidential hopeful said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood Funding Could Dominate the Next Government Shutdown Debate.  With full Republican control of Congress now, and a Presidential and important Congressional elections looming, conservatives will demand some concrete legislative victories in exchange for keeping the government open.  The Republican leadership, however, if the past is any guide, will want to extend current spending levels through next year and put off any substantive legislative battle until after the Presidential election.

The Planned Parenthood Carnage.  The absolute very first thing that came to mind as I saw and heard these videos dealing with the harvesting of human parts, was the fact this had to be one of the most grisly and nauseating stories I had ever seen or heard in my life before, bar none.  Come to think of it, I thought we were not, if you will, any different than terrorist organizations such as ISIS.  Maybe worse.  We may have perversely pretended to try and expose ISIS for their ruthless and barbaric beheadings of other human beings.  But then I ask:  Are we any better than they are?

Democrat Senator Announces He Will Vote To Defund Planned Parenthood.  Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced Monday [8/3/2015] he will vote to defund Planned Parenthood.  Last Tuesday, Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst introduced legislation to federally defund Planned Parenthood.  The bill quickly gained support among other Republican senators.  The bill gained 44 co-sponsors through the week but no Democrats lent their support.

How to Stop Planned Parenthood.  The U.S. Senate will vote today on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and to stop forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and the barbaric sale of baby organs.  Unfortunately, this bill won't be signed into law.  Even if enough Democrats support it to overcome a filibuster, President Obama will veto it.  That is why the new Republican Congress must refuse to fund Planned Parenthood this year, even if the President and the Democrats choose to defeat the bill and cause a temporary government shutdown.  This is the only way to win this fight.

Hillary Clinton comes out in support of Planned Parenthood.  Hillary Clinton is making her position on Planned Parenthood very clear:  She is in full support of the organization.  "I'm proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, I'll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions," Clinton said in a video released Monday [8/3/2015].

Planned Parenthood Survives Abortion in Senate.  Planned Parenthood survived a procedural vote Monday [8/3/2015] in the U.S. Senate on a bill to defund the organization, after a series of undercover videos emerged to suggest that the organization may have been willing to sell fetal organs from late-term abortions to tissue companies.  The vote for cloture was 53-46, meaning that it fell well shy of the 60 votes needed to end debate and proceed to a vote.

A Message to the Supporters of Planned Parenthood.  [Scroll down]  I have standing to offer an opinion, so to those on the Left, the Democratic Party and others who support the activity of Planned Parenthood, your espousal of unfettered abortion and the sale of human body parts while justifying your actions through the belief that you are not dealing with human life makes you no different than the members of the Nazi Party in 1930's Germany.  I am embarrassed and ashamed to refer to you as fellow Americans.  Further, your actions and beliefs are rapidly transforming American society into one that has no respect for the uniqueness of each individual and self-determination.  The ultimate result, if not reversed, will be the collapse of this nation either from internal or external chaos.

Companies Giving to Planned Parenthood Sometimes Reject Religious Charities.  As The Daily Signal and 2nd Vote have revealed, corporate America is a major source of revenue for Planned Parenthood.  While less than the half-billion in taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood receives annually, corporate contributions made up a healthy piece of the $127 million in "excess revenue" the ostensible nonprofit received last year alone.  But while corporate America has been comfortable donating funds to Planned Parenthood for years, it has been far less willing to give — or even allow its employees to give — to religious charities.

How the left gets everything wrong.  Example 1: Planned Parenthood is exposed like never before through a brilliant undercover sting operation.  The left's response?  Demonize the messenger and target him with legal action.  Never mind that growing babies inside the womb are being poisoned, dismembered, crushed, squeezed, yanked, ripped, torn apart, sucked out with a vacuum, and killed?  And never mind that for some once living babies it doesn't end there as their butchered bodies are then put through a strainer, poured into glass pie plates, and picked through with tweezers, while ghoulish Planned Parenthood employees laugh and joke and exclaim while looking at the mangled mess of blood and body parts, "It's a baby!" and "Another boy!"

Planned Parenthood and the barbarity of America.  Executives of Planned Parenthood's federally subsidized meat markets — your tax dollars at work — lack the courage of their convictions.  They should drop the pretense of conducting a complex moral calculus about the organs they harvest from the babies they kill.  First came the video showing a salad-nibbling, wine-sipping Planned Parenthood official explaining how "I'm going to basically crush below, I'm going to crush above" whatever organ ("heart, lung, liver") is being harvested.  Then the president of a Planned Parenthood chapter explained the happy side of harvesting:  "For a lot of the women participating in the fetal tissue donation program, they're having a procedure that may be a very difficult decision for them and this is a way for them to feel that something positive is coming from ... a very difficult time."

White House questions 'authenticity' of Planned Parenthood videos.  The White House dismissed the need for a federal investigation of Planned Parenthood Friday [7/31/2015], citing the opinions of three liberal newspapers as evidence that "impartial observers" are raising questions about the authenticity of a pro-life group's undercover videos on the sale of fetal tissue.  White House press secretary Josh Earnest also suggested that the pro-life group, the Center for Medical Progress, is an "extremist" organization.  And he said for the first time that President Obama would veto any effort by Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

Desperate Dems Recycle Planned Parenthood's Mammogram Lie.  As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood's for-profit aborted baby parts racket emerge thanks to the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress, desperate Democrats are in full deflection mode. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood this week by invoking the women's health shield.  "What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms," Burwell told the House Education and Workforce Committee.  Just one teeny, tiny problem with this defense:  It's a completely calculated fabrication.

Latest Planned Parenthood Footage Shows Dissected Fetuses.  "And another boy!" one tech says in the video after dissecting a tiny fetus in front of undercover actors posing as fetal tissue buyers for a fake biotech company.  The actors were in the process of negotiating a contract with the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic to procure the tissue, and had asked to see samples.  "Do people do stuff with eyeballs?" Dr. Savita Ginde, the clinic's Vice President and Medical Director, asks one of the potential buyers as she pokes around in a pie dish containing the tissue and fluids that resulted from an abortion.  "Oh yeah," the actor responds.  "Although eyeballs, they generally want more developed than this."

On Planned Parenthood, The White House Defends The Indefensible.  For an institution that might argue that it doesn't have a dog in this fight, the White House sure has stepped into the Planned Parenthood baby-parts selling scandal on the side of the flesh-peddlers.  Sounding a little surreal, White House press secretary Josh Earnest firmly stood up for Planned Parenthood on behalf of the Obama administration following the release of four undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing the family-planning agency's leaders' callous disregard for human life and its grotesque efforts to reap commercial benefit for itself.

Planned Parenthood Had Hillary's Private Email Address.  Planned Parenthood emailed Hillary Clinton on her private email address.  The revelation comes in the most recently released trove of Clinton's emails.

White House Says Planned Parenthood Videos Are Fake, Cites Planned Parenthood.  The White House expressed its firm belief Thursday [7/30/2015] that recently-released videos attacking Planned Parenthood are "fraudulent."  Their source:  Planned Parenthood.  Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, was speaking with reporters when they raised the matter of the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress which appear to show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal organs for profit, a violation of federal law.  He claimed the videos were released in a "fraudulent way" with "not a lot of evidence" behind them.

White House assails move to defund Planned Parenthood.  President Obama opposes Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of damaging videos exposing its fetal tissue donation program.  White House press secretary Josh Earnest stopped short of issuing a formal veto threat against the legislation, but he said "on balance, the president would not be supportive of such congressional action."  "This is a tactic we have seen used before," Earnest said of the GOP legislation.  "The president obviously does not support that ongoing effort."

Guilt as Power.  The people who in the videos merrily describe the prices they can obtain for this or that body part may one day be old and as helpless as the infants they have dismembered.  Then they will be in the care of men like themselves.  And on that far day these young — then old — may want water.  On what grounds will they demand it?  On what basis will they ask for care, love or compassion?

Jeb Bush Sat On Board Of Philanthropy That Gave Millions To Planned Parenthood.  Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was one of the directors of a charity that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, LifeSiteNews first reported.  Named a founding director to the tax-exempt Bloomberg Family Foundation in 2010, Bush sat on the board until the end of 2014 when he began to prepare for his presidential run.  Bloomberg Philanthropies announced in March of 2014, while Bush was still on the board, it was giving $50 million to strengthen "reproductive health rights in Burkina Faso, Nicaragua, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda."

Planned Parenthood's chop shops.  One reason it is so difficult to recover stolen cars is that many, if not most, are stolen not to be sold intact, but rather to be taken to what are called chop shops, below-the-radar auto body shops that surreptitiously dismantle these vehicles, stripping away every conceivable part that may have resale value in the auto aftermarket.  An automobile carefully dissected provides far more value from all those separate parts than it could ever have in its whole form.  And sadly, such appears to be true with unborn babies as well.

10 Quick, Important Developments On The Planned Parenthood Scandal.  Whether or not the story generates major media attention, the Center for Medical Progress' expose of Planned Parenthood's participation in the harvesting and sale of fetal organs continues to feature major updates.  Here are 10 of them.

Public Relations Firm SKDKnickerbocker Scrubs Website Of Tie To Planned Parenthood.  SKDKnickerbocker sent out a memo to journalists trying to keep them from reporting on the undercover videos, on the grounds they were obtained under false identification and violated patient privacy.  Planned Parenthood botched a portion of its difficult public relations campaign when it was unable to provide any evidence at all for a claim that the group's site was under attack and had to be shut down.  As explained in "Planned Parenthood 'Hacking' Sure Looks Like An Orchestrated PR Stunt," Planned Parenthood's web page seemed to function fine.  It just replaced the page with a claim of an attack, but then directed visitors to give the group money or otherwise help with their public relations campaign.

President Of NOW: Moms Love Planned Parenthood, Aborted Fetuses Are 'Disgusting'.  On Now with Alex Wagner on Thursday [7/30/2015], the President of the National Organization for Women was on briefly to discuss the scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood, and how it might affect Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations.  In the short time she was on screen, O'Neill managed to utter a surprising array of tone-deaf and highly-charged statements.

Planned Parenthood President Made 39 Visits To Obama's White House Since 2009.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, head of the taxpayer-subsidized abortion giant currently facing a firestorm for allegedly selling body parts harvested from aborted babies, has made personal visits to the White House 39 times since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, White House records show.  According to online records on the White House website, Richards first visited the White House on Jan. 20, 2009 — the same day Obama first took office.  Since then, Richards has met with Obama alone at least three times and First Lady Michelle Obama at least twice.  She also met with [the] president and his wife together another four times.

Graphic undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood doctor examining aborted fetus for viable tissue specimens and cracking a skull while pricing out parts versus the entire body.  The Center for Medical Progress has released a new undercover video of Planned Parenthood doctors, this time as they closely examine an aborted fetus for viable tissue.  The parts of the fetus — including the head, hands, and legs — are easily identifiable in the video as the doctors discuss pricing of individual parts versus the entire body.  The video comes after Cecile Richards — the president of Planned Parenthood — said in an interview that the group has done nothing illegal and is the target of a political smear campaign.

Planned Parenthood video reveals babies may be born alive and then killed.  In the fourth and most startling undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) admits that about 10 percent of their second trimester babies are born "intact" before the abortion procedure is done.  In an interview with CNN, CMP leader, David Daleiden, explained why StemExpress, a biotech company that partners with Planned Parenthood, is trying to suppress the release of more video tapes.

CMP chief: Stem Express hiding trade in intact human fetuses.  Why does Stem Express want to keep the undercover video shot by the Center for Medical Progress under wraps?  David Daleiden, CMP's project leader, tells CNN that the conversation included an admission that they "sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with."  Daleiden notes, "That could be prima facie evidence of born-alive infants" — and a potential series of violations of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA), passed into law in 2002.  And that's why "they're very scared of it," Daleiden says ... right before the interviewer changes the subject:  [Video clip]

Bombshell: Investigator says StemExpress bought intact dead babies from Planned Parenthood.  Undercover investigator David Daleiden tells CNN the reason StemExpress is trying to suppress the video he took of its CEO on May 22 is because the company doesn't want anyone to know it bought whole intact dead babies from Planned Parenthood.  Daleiden said on CNN, "In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants.  And so that's why they're trying to suppress that videotape and they're very scared of it."

White House threatens to veto bill blocking Planned Parenthood's funding.  The White House on Friday [7/31/2015] threatened a veto on any bill that defunds Planned Parenthood.  A budget measure that strips funding from the organization "is certainly something that would draw a presidential veto," press secretary Josh Earnest said.  "We have routinely opposed the inclusion of ideologically driven riders" in budget bills, Earnest added.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Admits To 'Merely Repeating' Planned Parenthood Talking Points.  White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted that the administration's response to the damning Planned Parenthood videos that have been released over the last few weeks has come from the organization's public comments, not from any investigation on the part of the White House.  Earnest was asked by Breitbart's Charlie Spiering where he was getting his information that the videos were fraudulent and distorted:  ["]I'm merely repeating what I've seen that they've [Planned Parenthood] said, and has been reported publicly about what they've said.["]

Judge blocks release of recordings by anti-abortion group.  A federal judge on Friday [7/31/2015] blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of an abortion providers' association by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader.

Obama Appointee And Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting.  A federal judge late Friday [7/31/2015] granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers.  The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood's participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.  Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.  Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama.  He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama's presidential campaign.  He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

Court bars anti-abortion group from releasing new videos.  A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers.

Fear and Fascism: Judge Bars Release of More Planned Parenthood Videos.  A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers.  The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.  The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday [7/28/2015] prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May.  It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.

Rush: Dems Claim To Be for 'Little Guy,' But Defend PP.  Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh criticized Democrats for defending Planned Parenthood while claiming to be the party of "the little guy" on Friday [7/31/2015].  Rush said of the videos, "The White House says nothing to see here.  Hillary Clinton says she's troubled by the videos.  Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), praising the, whatever she described Planned Parenthood as being, a great, compassionate organization.  Selling these body parts, the lie, for medical research.  And yet, there isn't one medical advancement that any of the people responsible for this can point to and say, 'Look what we've done!  Look at the advances that we've made!'  It's purely for money and profit.  It's barbaric beyond any ability I have to describe it.  I've waited.  Two weeks, three weeks have gone by.  There's no room for equivocation on this.  There's no room for, 'Well, what if there's something we don't understand here?'  There's no room for that.  [This is] clear-cut depravity, murder.  And that human beings are doing this to one another, and claiming that people who oppose this, somehow, are conducting a War on Women, or are unaware and unfeeling of another person's rights?  Are you serious? [...]"

Planned Parenthood on the run: Refuses to attend Texas hearing.  The Texas state Senate's Health and Human Services Committee plan to review the videos to determine whether Planned Parenthood broke any laws, and to debate how to put an end to cash trades for organs harvested during abortions.

Colorado abortion clinic staff failed to report 13-year-old's sexual abuse.  Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains was hit with a complaint Wednesday for performing an abortion on a 13-year-old girl without reporting possible sexual abuse against the underage girl and returning her to the man who abused her.  The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs against the Planned Parenthood affiliate on behalf of the pro-life Colorado Family Action.

Complaint Filed Against Colorado Planned Parenthood for Covering Up Rape.  Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood recently gained notoriety when the Center for Medical Progress released a video of people at the abortion clinic picking through a dish of aborted baby parts in order to sell them.  Now the Planned Parenthood affiliate is facing accusations of serious wrongdoing: [...]

Nets Maintain Blackout on New Planned Parenthood Video; CNN Covers.  As of Wednesday morning [7/29/2015], ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the third video from the Center for Medical Progress, which featured a whistle-blower's account of "picking" through the remains of aborted babies in order to find organs that could be sold for medical research.  The Big Three networks have actually devoted more time to the slaying of a lion in Zimbabwe than all three videos from pro-life organization.

Planned Parenthood Begs Media: Stop Covering Our Scandal.  Planned Parenthood is in real trouble. Three shocking videos released over recent days — with more on the way, apparently — have shown officials at the abortion giant haggling over the price of aborted baby organs.  It's ghastly, gruesome stuff, replete with one representative describing how she alters her late term abortion procedures to "crush" the baby in specific areas as to preserve sought-after and lucrative body parts.  Another laughs that higher prices could help her buy "a Lamborghini."  The abortion lobby argues that fetuses are not human beings worthy of legal protection, while selling the intact human organs of the "non-people" they kill.  Besieged by negative headlines and a horrified public, Planned Parenthood has hired a crisis PR firm, [...]

Call it 'research,' not 'business,' Planned Parenthood doc says in latest sting video.  A Colorado Planned Parenthood doctor stresses calling the harvesting of fetal tissue "research" and not "business" — and casually pokes around in a petri dish of aborted remains as a colleague exclaims, "Another boy!" — in the latest video released Thursday [7/30/2015] by an activist group whose hidden camera stings have imperiled the embattled nonprofit's taxpayer funding.  The video's release by the Center for Medical Progress comes a day after CMP was issued a restraining order preventing it from issuing any new footage of a group that worked with Planned Parenthood, StemExpress.  But Thursday's material focuses almost entirely on a woman identified as Dr. Savita Ginde, the vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.

PP: Pondering Profits.  A key defense being used by PP is that they don't "profit" from the sales of baby hearts.  Like most liberal arguments this is a bit of sophistry that hinges on a legalistic interpretation of the word "profit".  Because PP is a non-profit — which is why they don't pay taxes — it can't technically ever make a profit.  Hence when PP is paid money for baby parts they can say it's not a profit, even if it's more than the direct cost of "harvesting" the baby livers because that money is then supposedly used to provide free services — i.e. abortions — to poor women, preferably Black women, based on abortion statistics.  Most people think someone makes a profit when they get more out of some activity than they put in.  That means one can profit without making a profit.

Nine More Undercover Videos Ready To Drop On Planned Parenthood.  David Daleiden, founder of the Center For Medical Progress (CMP), told conservative talk radio host Sean Hannity Tuesday [7/28/2015] there are nine more sting-operation videos that reveal Planned Parenthood's operations.  "We have close to 300 hours total of undercover video that was gathered during a 30 month long in depth investigative journalism study of how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of the babies they abort," Daleiden said, noting that each highlight video released will have the full footage posted on their website without any edits.

GOP, appalled by sale of baby parts, working on phony bill to defund Planned Parenthood.  Do you know Joni Ernst?  She's the new "Tea Party" senator from Iowa.  With her mannish hairdo and her photo-ops riding a motorcycle, she was supposed to be a cultural connection between "modern" quasi-masculine women and conservatism.  It hasn't quite worked out that way.  She is the head of a Senate "working group" that is working on legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.  Ernst is outraged by the reports of PP selling baby organs.  The only problem is that the legislations she has been working on has no chance of becoming law, and when she did have a chance to defund Planned Parenthood on Sunday, for real, she was silent.

Planned Parenthood Received Millions of Dollars After Lobbying Clinton's State Department.  Planned Parenthood lobbied the Department of State many times during Hillary Clinton's tenure there and received tens of millions of dollars from foreign policy agencies over the past few years, according to a new report.  As secretary of state, Clinton attacked the Mexico City Policy, which bans federal funding of abortion overseas. Her husband revoked the policy during his administration and President Obama lifted the ban upon taking office in 2009. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which is tied to the State Department, steered more than $100 million in funding to Planned Parenthood, its international affiliates, and the pro-abortion Population Council between 2010 and 2012, according to the Government Accountability Office — about 20 percent of the nearly $500 million pro-abortion organizations received from taxpayers during that time frame.

New Undercover Video Reveals Planned Parenthood Willing to Sell Organs From Delivered Babies.  The Center For Medical Progress has released a fourth undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Vice President of the Rocky Mountains and Medical Director Dr. Savita Ginde discussing how babies that are "delivered before procedure," aka born alive, are used to harvest "intact" organs.  "Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we are able to see them for a procedure the we [sic] are intact," Ginde is shown saying.  The video also shows abortionists pointing out "another boy!" has been extracted and celebrating intact baby parts as "five stars!"

Planned Parenthood official airs legal concerns.  A fourth video about Planned Parenthood's participation in collecting aborted fetal tissue features a top official stressing the need to coordinate the practice among clinics to avoid any legal troubles.  Savita Ginde, medical director for Planned Parenthood's Rocky Mountains office, doesn't explicitly say clinics are selling fetal tissue for a profit, which would be illegal.  But in the latest video, she appears to nod agreement when actors posing as human tissue buyers say they want to pay "top dollar" for fetuses even though the cost of obtaining them is "negligible."

Planned Parenthood's 'Hacked' Website Looks Like PR Stunt.  As outcry grows in response to a series of undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood (PP) employees appearing to engage in selling organs and tissues from aborted babies for profit, the abortion provider claimed that "extremists" had hacked their website.  As Breitbart News reported, PP claimed that it had been hacked on Sunday evening [7/26/2015].

Planned Parenthood "Hacking" Sure Looks Like An Orchestrated PR Stunt.  Planned Parenthood claims on several of its websites that the organization's web operations have been attacked by "extremists," but this so-called hacking has all the hallmarks of an orchestrated public relations stunt.  Numerous people on Twitter pointed to evidence suggesting that this so-called hack wasn't a hack at all: [...]

Josh Earnest: 'Not a Lot of Evidence' Planned Parenthood Acted Unethically.  During Thursday's [7/30/2015] White House briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest said that because the Planned Parenthood sting videos were obtained "fraudulently," they couldn't be used to draw conclusions about the organization's ethical standards.  "Has the White House had any communication with Planned Parenthood about standardizing procedures for fetal tissue research?  Has the White House had any concerns about illegalities in this realm?  Have you had any sort of investigation, or are you considering one?" asked Fox News' Doug McKelway.  "Not that I'm aware of," Earnest responded.  "I think Planned Parenthood has been quite specific about the policies and procedures that they have in place, and I know they have described those policies and procedures as living up to the highest ethical standards."

Planned Parenthood President: Our Critics Are Extremists.  President of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Cecile Richards dismissed critics as extremists Wednesday [7/29/2015] in the wake of videos showing how the group harvests fetal organs.  "Since our very beginning, our health centers, providers and patients have come under outrageous attacks, political and otherwise," Cecile wrote in an opinion piece for The Washington Post.  "The most recent attacks in this decades-long campaign represent a new low."

Planned Parenthood Doctor on How to Avoid Getting Caught Selling Baby Parts.  The latest video released today shows Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood talking to buyers from a fictitious company about how to avoid the appearance of violating federal law against selling fetal body parts that are the result of abortion.  Ginde talks specifically about how to avoid getting caught.

WH Backs Planned Parenthood And Their 'High Ethical Standard'.  White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest says he suspects somebody in the Obama Administration has seen a series of videos on Planned Parenthood's role in harvesting the organs of babies, but the administration is basing its position that the videos are edited unfairly on the comments of Planned Parenthood and "the high ethical standard they live up to."  During a White House press briefing Thursday [7/30/2015] Earnest was asked if anyone at the White House has watched the series of videos about Planned Parenthood.  "I suspect somebody has," Earnest replied.

Why Planned Parenthood Can't Donate Tissue Harvested From Babies.  Federal law prohibits partial-birth abortion, a gruesome procedure in which an unborn baby is intentionally turned to the breech position to ensure that delivery of the body happens before delivery of the head.  Once the baby's head is stuck in the birth canal, the abortionist punctures the skull, evacuates the contents, and the baby is dead.  There's a good reason this practice is banned — it's barbaric.  Many Americans may not know that the term "partial-birth abortion" is not a medical one but a legal one.  And, according to Planned Parenthood doctor Deborah Nucatola, some abortion providers don't consider it with any seriousness.  In her own words, "It's not a medical term, it doesn't exist in reality."

Planned Parenthood Workers Laugh Sorting '5-Star' Baby Parts, Try Not to 'Smush' Them.  The latest video exposing the trafficking of aborted babies by Planned Parenthood showed workers casually laughing over and probing at pieces of a "baby" and "another boy."  The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a fourth investigative video July 30 showing Planned Parenthood executive, Dr. Savita Ginde, bartering over baby part pricing while admitting that the chances of providing intact organs are better if a woman "delivers before we get to see them."  The video showed Planned Parenthood workers laughing over "five-star" baby parts while trying not to "smush" them.

HHS Chief Burwell Won't Investigate Planned Parenthood, Hasn't Seen Videos.  In testimony before the House Education and the Workforce Committee Tuesday, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell said she had not viewed any of the videos regarding Planned Parenthood's involvement in harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale, and that her office would not be conducting an investigation into the practices of the nation's largest abortion provider.  According to a news release at the Committee's website and video of Burwell's testimony, the secretary said she had not personally viewed any of the videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress, despite the fact that they are widely available online.

Texas AG: Office Has Received More Planned Parenthood Videos.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Wednesday [7/29/2015] that his office has received video taken in a Planned Parenthood clinic he says is consistent with other stealthily recorded footage that has Republicans again taking on the biggest abortion provider in the U.S.

Senators introduce Planned Parenthood defunding bill.  In a press conference announcing the bill, sponsor Joni Ernst spoke out against PPFA's harvesting-for-profit scheme, saying, "As a mother and grandmother, I find this footage of Planned Parenthood's role in the harvesting of the organs of unborn babies morally reprehensible and vile...  The American people are horrified by these videos as well.  Simply put, this legislation ensures that funding for women's health is protected and that taxpayer dollars will not go to Planned Parenthood."

HHS boss won't probe Planned Parenthood — or even watch videos.  The week-long outcry over secretly-taped videos revealing Planned Parenthood's practice of selling body parts of aborted fetuses won't be investigated by the federal agency that provided $67.2 million between 2010 and 2012 — or even watched by the department's boss.  The House Education and the Workforce Committee Tuesday [7/28/2015] released videos of testimony from Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell explaining why she won't probe the Planned Parenthood affair.

Planned Parenthood PAC Seeks Thank You Notes for Doctors' 'Courage and Compassion'.  Planned Parenthood Federation of America's Political Action Committee posted two requests on its Facebook page for supporters to sign "thank you" notes for doctors and other staff employed at its abortion clinics.  The nation's largest abortion provider posted a request for visitors to express thanks for the organization's staff at its clinics, which performed 327,653 abortions in one year, according to its most recent annual report.

Planned Parenthood Video No. 3.  Planned Parenthood is in trouble.  While Democratic politicians continue to stand behind the organization, corporate sponsors reportedly are dropping by the wayside. [...] What makes Planned Parenthood's position so difficult is that it has never really been a secret that the organization sells babies' organs.  What Planned Parenthood wants to say (and does say, although with a certain lack of conviction) is that selling babies' organs is a great thing because they are used in scientific research.  The problem is that no one who watches the videos has that reaction.

Cruz: Planned Parenthood [is] a 'criminal enterprise'.  Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Ben Carson led conservatives in a rally against Planned Parenthood Tuesday, following the publication of three videos detailing the organization's sale of organs harvested from aborted fetuses.  "Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation into whether Planned Parenthood nationally is a criminal enterprise breaking the law," Cruz said on the lawn on the Capitol.  But the Texas senator was skeptical this would happen, adding "the Obama Justice Department in acting as little more than a partisan arm of the Democratic National Committee."

Nobody Knows How Much Planned Parenthood Gets.  [Scroll down]  Back in March, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report examined three years of funding for PP and other abortion groups.  That report found state and federal partnerships, such as Medicaid and CHIP, spent $1.2 billion on programs and grants to Planned Parenthood, including about $401 million in 2012.  However, this data doesn't assist in fully defunding Planned Parenthood, because nobody knows who is spending what. [...] While the Family Research Council (FRC) used the GAO report to calculate that more than $96 million came to PP exclusively from the feds in the form of Title X funding, that is only a fraction of the amount of federal funding PP affiliates and clinics receive.

Technician details harvesting fetal parts for Planned Parenthood in latest video.  [Scroll down]  The new, graphic video from the Center for Medical Progress appears to show technicians using tweezers to pick through aborted fetal tissue for baby parts.  After one person in the video picks out a pair of intact kidneys someone off-camera laughs and says, "Five stars!"  O'Donnell said she fainted the first time she was part of this process and was told by someone in the room, "some of us don't ever get over it."

Planned Parenthood's PR Firm Is Asking Reporters Not To Air Undercover Video.  One of the largest public relations firms in Washington D.C. circulated a memo Monday night urging members of the media to refrain from airing damning videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of organs and tissue of aborted fetuses.  Politico is reporting that Planned Parenthood hired SKDKnickerbocker to help manage blowback from the videos, which were produced by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress.  According to Politico, SKDKnickerbocker sent the memo to unnamed "reporters and producers" asking them to blackball the videos — the third of which was released on Tuesday [7/28/2015].

Planned Parenthood taps crisis communications firm.  Planned Parenthood has enlisted high-profile Washington public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal and release of a third undercover video Tuesday [7/28/2015] showing a clinic's staff handling fetal tissue after an abortion.

Former Planned Parenthood Employee Describes the Baby Part Market.  In the third of the sting videos proving that Planned Parenthood illegally traffics in human body parts, the Center For Medical Progress interviews a former Planned Parenthood "procurement technician" who explains how they get the baby parts and how much money PP makes from them.

Ben Carson To Headline Washington D.C. #WomenBetrayed Rally To Defund Planned Parenthood.  Retired pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson will be the featured speaker Tuesday [7/28/2015] at the Washington, D.C. #WomenBetrayed rally to defund Planned Parenthood.  To date, some 60 cities are confirmed as holding rallies — all of which have been coordinated by the nation's largest organization of pro-life millennials, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future.  The rallies urge citizens across the nation to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood 'sponsors' deny funding organization amid hidden camera controversy.  Planned Parenthood once boasted a list of sponsors that read like a who's who of the Fortune 100, but now some of the biggest companies say they never gave money to the embattled organization.  Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox are all among the companies listed in a roster of corporate sponsors claimed by Planned Parenthood, but representatives for the companies said they either never donated to the organization or had not in years.  Planned Parenthood, which is now reeling from the release of two undercover videos in which top officials alluded to selling fetus parts, had published the company names on the website of its Washington, DC, chapter.  The list was part of an appeal to employees who the site said could double their donations with the help of their employers.

Deception or Truth About Planned Parenthood Body Parts Sale?  The counterattack against [Planned Parenthood]'s critics attempts to cast the debate as one in which the right to abortion or even research with fetal tissue is being called into question.  But the Planned Parenthood videos are shocking because they reveal the barbarism of late-term abortion procedures used on infants that could possibly survive outside the womb and the callous way in which abortion mills profit from them.  The issue here isn't the future of Roe v. Wade or medical research, but the reality of a practice that rightly strikes most Americans as equivalent to infanticide.

Planned Parenthood Panics.  The undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's involvement in the trafficking of aborted baby organs has gained so much attention in the press that Planned Parenthood's president, Cecile Richards, felt compelled to appear on ABC's This Week on Sunday [7/26/2015] to address the scandal.  As a crisis communications response, the interview didn't go well.  Richards's demanor was composed, but her statements gave the distinct impression that Planned Parenthood is panicking.

Democratic Senator Fundraising Off of Planned Parenthood Organ Harvesting Videos.  Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, sent out a fundraising email on Monday [7/27/2015] condemning congressional efforts to investigate Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling aborted baby organs to biotech companies.  Gillibrand writes that the congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood "makes my head explode."  "I'm confident that if we had more women leading in Washington, we would not still be dealing with the right wing's efforts to trample women's health care," she says.

Senate blocks Mike Lee's vote to defund Planned Parenthood.  Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) was rebuked by his Senate colleagues on Sunday [7/26/2015] 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.

McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate's Law.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has never been a favorite of conservatives.  Those who see him as a "squishy" compromiser more interested in placating President Barack Obama and K Street lobbyists than the Republican base had more fuel tossed on that fire when he blocked amendments to the Highway Bill Tea Party members wholeheartedly support.  One amendment would defund Planned Parenthood, the nationwide abortion provider which receives more than a half billion dollars in taxpayer subsidies annually.  McConnell has previously said he supports defunding Planned Parenthood, [...] But the leader blocked an amendment to the Highway Bill that would have defunded the organization.

Carly Fiorina demolishes EMILY's List representative on 'heavily edited' body parts videos.  Planned Parenthood and the abortion-supporting Democrats are taking on water over the stunning videos of PP reps haggling over the price of fetal body parts and discussing how to conduct abortions to preserve the most valuable organs for handing over to third parties in return for money (they refuse to call it "selling").  As Rick Moran reports this morning [7/27/2015], PP's president absurdly is blaming "militants" for the videos.  Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Carly Fiorina debated EMILY's List vice president Jess McIntosh, and handed the abortion enthusiast her posterior.

The 4 Most Embarrassing Things Cecile Richards Said In Defense Of Planned Parenthood.  Of the many hundreds of angles that could be analyzed to report on this story about the sale of organs from aborted children, many in the media focused on just one:  Who are the people who made this video?  The very first set of talking points and journalistic marching orders sent around by Planned Parenthood asked reporters to focus on the makers of the video rather than the content of the videos.  Unfortunately for them, the guy behind the videos appears to be a very nice and pious pro-life activist named David Daleiden.  I have no idea what possessed Richards to try this line of attack but she — on live national television — tried to claim that Daleiden is "part of the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement that has been behind the bombing of clinics, the murder of doctors in their homes, and in their churches."  Even more shockingly, perhaps, [ABC's George] Stephanopoulos didn't ask her to substantiate this insane charge.

Anti-abortion hackers claim to have breached Planned Parenthood.  Anti-abortion hackers have apparently hit Planned Parenthood, potenially [sic] leaking the reproductive healthcare organization's internal data and employee information.  The hackers are also threatening to release the nonprofit group's internal emails, according to The Daily Dot, which first reported the possible intrusion.

As pols push to defund Planned Parenthood, how much is it costing you?  Over the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood has gotten more than $4 billion in state and federal government aid.  Any bid to defund the organization may face long odds.  But how much is it costing you?

Mitch McConnell's Mission Is to Present Strong Do-Nothing Opposition to the Leftist Agenda.  No one can accuse McConnell's Senate of trying to speak to their base or oppose anything with any vitality. [...] McConnell originally wouldn't allow a discussion of a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, an abortion behemoth burdened with scandals over the years that takes half-a-billion dollars out of taxpayer's pockets annually.  The group trying to expose their unethical and possibly illegal practices is under investigation by Obama's DOJ but Planned Parenthood is not, though they callously sell aborted baby body parts and change the method of killing babies without telling the mothers to better preserve the parts they can then sell.  Some issues do not have two sides and this is one of them.  The Republican party is presenting no significant opposition as a party.

Planned Parenthood chief blasted undercover videos from 'militant' pro-life wing.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards insisted Sunday that her organization has broken no laws and does not — "at all" — profit from the transfer of fetal tissue, a response to a scandal that enveloped the group after undercover videos showed officials discussing the surgical process and its costs in a nonchalant manner.  The videos caused an uproar among pro-life groups and Capitol Hill Republicans, who are questioning the legality of the tissue transfers and have insisted on stripping the group of federal funding.

Planned Parenthood Exec Cited Public Hospital as Possible Source of Aborted Baby Parts.  The Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm based in Chicago, is seeking abortion records from the city's publicly-funded John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital after a Planned Parenthood executive in California suggested the hospital as a possible source for harvested fetal organs.  The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was filed with the Cook County Health and Hospital System on July 17 by associate counsel Corrina Konczal on behalf of Illinois Right to Life.  It requests "any and all records which relate to the disposition of dead embryos or fetuses, fetal parts, fetal organs, and/or fetal tissue... after an abortion (whether elective or spontaneous) at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County including any information referring or relating to the disposal, sale, research upon, transfer, or shipment of fetal remains and any costs of reimbursements, whether monetary or otherwise, associated therewith for the last five years."

Boehner Wants More 'Facts' Before De-Funding Planned Parenthood.  House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that he wants to put "facts first" before using the appropriations process to end federal funding to Planned Parenthood.  The most recent reports of harvesting and selling body parts from aborted unborn babies have renewed the call to end the more than half a billion dollars that the organization receives in government funding each year.  Here are just a few more facts that Boehner (and all of Congress) should consider before continuing to send the hard-earned dollars of American taxpayers to the nation's largest abortion provider: [...]

Banned Parenthood? Pro-lifers say video scandal should get abortion provider expelled from public schools.  The hidden camera scandal engulfing Planned Parenthood should be enough to get the organization kicked out of public schools, where it is the nation's leading provider of sex ed lessons, say pro-life groups that have long suspected the nonprofit of steering youngsters toward its abortion services.  The national organization is reeling after a group called the Center for Medical Progress released a second video showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing prices for tissue from aborted fetuses.  The cringe-inducing videos have prompted calls from some Republicans to cut federal funding to the organization, but its critics have long wanted it out of the classroom.

Kamala Harris to review group behind Planned Parenthood abortion videos.  California Attorney General Kamala Harris will review whether the nonprofit organization behind controversial Planned Parenthood videos violated state law, her office said in a letter Friday [7/24/2015].  Four Democratic congresswomen on Wednesday asked Harris and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to determine if officials from the Irvine-based Center for Medical Progress broke any laws when they posed as workers for a biotech company while recording Planned Parenthood physicians without their consent.

Doctor: Don't call them 'baby parts,' call them 'products of conception'.  A pro-choice doctor is challenging the term "baby parts" to describe fetal tissue and organs, arguing that they should be referred to as "products of conception."  In a Thursday [7/23/2015] article for the New Republic, Dr. Jen Gunter, a California-based OB/GYN, took issue with the use of "baby parts" by pro-life groups following the Center for Medical Progress's release of videos with Planned Parenthood doctors discussing fetal-tissue donation.

Hillary Clinton Defends Embattled Planned Parenthood'.  Hillary Clinton strongly defended Planned Parenthood Thursday [7/23/2015] as the women's health organization reels from the fallout over a sting video released by anti-abortion activists earlier this month.  "For more than a century, Planned Parenthood has provided essential services for women," Clinton said while campaigning at a community college in Greenville, South Carolina.  "And I think it is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood has been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years.  And it's really an attack against a woman's right to chose."

The battle goes beyond Planned Parenthood. We must end abortion in America.  Each year, Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions, and 92 percent of pregnant women who walk into Planned Parenthood receive an abortion.  Since 1973, abortion has ended the lives of 60 million babies, and we will never know how many of these souls were harvested to the highest bidder.  Planned Parenthood isn't a healthcare provider any more than Benghazi was a 'spontaneous protest'.  It should enrage every American that our government confiscates money from our paychecks only to bankroll these barbaric butchers with $500 million each year.  This isn't about women's health, this is about making money off babies body parts.

Congress must defund Planned Parenthood's killing fields.  The video was filmed by the Center for Medical Progress — the second of what could be many more undercover stings.  Planned Parenthood's only defense was to say the videos were heavily edited.  They also expressed remorse for the tone of the secretly recorded conversations.  Proper tone?  So what exactly is the proper tone when negotiating a price for discarded body parts?  What exactly is the proper tone when you're running a chop shop for unborn children?

Why selling baby parts should shock no one.  Republican presidential candidates denounced the practice of "fetal organ harvesting" and GOP leaders in Congress have again threatened to "defund" Planned Parenthood.  They won't, because they haven't before.  Since Roe vs. Wade, there have been more than 55 million (and counting) legal abortions performed in the U.S.  There are a number of sociological, moral and political reasons why abortions continue, but the occasional outcry when something like the Planned Parenthood videos surface will not save the lives of unborn children.  Because abortions are performed behind closed doors, is it simply a case of out of sight, out of mind?

McConnell to fast-track bill to defund Planned Parenthood.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell started a fast-track process Friday on legislation to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding in the wake of two controversial videos showing officials discussing delivery of fetal parts.  The Republican leader began "Rule 14," which will let the legislation skip the committee process and be placed on the Senate calendar so it can be brought up for a floor vote.

Planned Parenthood Pulls Names of Corporate Donors After Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox Object.  Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox say they've asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names as corporate donors to the embattled organization.  The move follows a Daily Signal report revealing the names of 41 companies that Planned Parenthood listed as donors.  That list, which was featured on Planned Parenthood's website, has since been removed.

HHS Rejects Planned Parenthood FOIA Request Because It's 'Not Newsworthy'.  Earlier this week, Mary Hasson broke the news here at the Federalist that federal funds went to Planned Parenthood's salad-munching, wine-sipping, organ-harvesting Dr. Deborah Nucatola for advice on "healthy baby" births.  Hasson requested all communications and documents relevant to any payments to or compensation of fees, consultant fees, reimbursements, etc. to Deborah Nucatola, MD, a Planned Parenthood employee.  And she requested that the documents be sent as soon as possible.

There is, indeed, money in Planned Parenthood's baby-harvesting.  [Scroll down]  Remember:  baby harvesting, the best efforts of the abortion industry notwithstanding, is actually still illegal.  That means that a company can't lock down a particular harvester with a legal contract that would be enforceable in a court of law:  it'd be like a cocaine distributor trying to enter into a legal agreement with a drug lab to require that the latter provided cocaine of a particular quality and quantity.  How would you get the courts to enforce it?  In other words, it's all done less formally.  And it's apparently a seller's market, too.

Rand Paul Pushes Ahead to Defund Planned Parenthood, Circumvent Mitch McConnell Blocking Of Amendments.  [Senator Rand] Paul tried to get the floor to stand up and offer an amendment to defund Planned Parenthood and another one to arm servicemen and women on military bases.  He intended to offer these measures as amendments to the highway bill that is currently on the Senate floor.  Whoever was presiding over the floor refused to recognize Paul to offer his amendments.

Dems call for DOJ probe of group behind Planned Parenthood videos.  Several House Democrats are calling for a federal investigation into the anti-abortion group targeting Planned Parenthood with dozens of hours of hidden camera footage. A group of Democrats, led by Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), sent a letter Wednesday to the Department of Justice arguing the undercover videos from The Center for Medical Progress may have broken federal and state laws.  The Center for Medical Progress, which is going after Planned Parenthood because of its abortion services, created a fake company to gain access to its facilities and meetings with its high-level officials.

Sally Kohn Blames Planned Parenthood Videos on 'Patriarchy,' 'White Supremacy'.  The taxpayer-funded abortion giant has "patriarchy" to thank for exposing its dealings, according to CNN's Sally Kohn.  On Twitter Wednesday [7/22/2015], the CNN political commentator and Daily Beast writer blamed the recent videos showing Planned Parenthood executives trafficking aborted babies' parts on the "patriarchy" and "white supremacy.

We Asked Companies About Their Donations to Planned Parenthood.  Here's How They Responded.  On Tuesday [7/21/2015], The Daily Signal published a list of companies that donate or have donated directly to Planned Parenthood, either through grants or through matching employee gifts, according to 2nd Vote, a money-tracking website and app that looks at consumers and political causes.  The Daily Signal reached out to each company to ask about its donations to the nation's largest abortion provider.  Representatives for Xerox, Coca-Cola and Ford Motor Co. told The Daily Signal that they had been incorrectly listed as donors by Planned Parenthood.  They said their companies do not contribute to Planned Parenthood and do not match employee gifts to the organization.  All three said they have contacted or will contact Planned Parenthood to be removed from its website.

Boehner Won't Say That GOP House Will Defund Planned Parenthood.  House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would not say today whether the Republican-majority House will allow federal funding of Planned Parenthood in fiscal 2016, which starts on Oct. 1. [...] According to its most recent financial report, for 2013-14, Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million in government funding (grants and reimbursements) in 2014.  In fiscal 2013, the organization performed 327,653 abortions, the report said.

Planned Parenthood Paid Disgraced Official More Than $200,000 On The Side.  Planned Parenthood not only pays its disgraced official Deborah Nucatola a salary.  The abortion provider has also paid Nucatola a six-figure sum as an outside contractor. [...] But Nucatola also founded her own firm called Imagyn Inc. in Sherman Oaks, Calif.  The firm was incorporated in the state of California on April 1, 2008.  She is still listed as president of the corporation. [...] What, exactly, was she paid for?  And what does her firm do?

Planned Parenthood's erroneous corporate sponsor list.  If they sincerely cherish their names and reputations, the principals of Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox should launch a joint lawsuit against Planned Parenthood.  Until the scandalous video showed their doctors talking about the sale of aborted baby parts as 'taking care of business', the names of the three multi-nationals, among others, were being openly advertised as corporate sponsors on the Planned Parenthood website.  The purveyors of selling aborted baby parts have linked their names to infamy, and in fact disgraced all corporations boldly named on the Planned Parenthood website.

The Price of Fetal Parts.  Planned Parenthood's reaction to the release of a secretly recorded conversation about the sale of fetal body parts was highly revealing.  After protesting that it had done nothing illegal, it apologized for the "tone" of one of its senior directors.  Her remarks lacked compassion, admitted Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards.  As if Dr. Deborah Nucatola's cold and casual discussion over salad and wine of how the fetal body can be crushed with forceps in a way that leaves valuable organs intact for sale were some kind of personal idiosyncrasy.  On the contrary, it's precisely the kind of psychic numbing that occurs when dealing daily with industrial-scale destruction of the growing, thriving, recognizably human fetus.

Planned Parenthood revelations disgusting.  The capacity for evil lurks inside the most normal, most benign-looking good citizens who go about their daily work without a worry or a care.  It manifests itself in their ability to ignore the darkness inside of them, that then spreads from their hearts and hands to the greater world.  By now you must know I'm talking about Planned Parenthood.  If you support that organization because of all the "good" it supposedly does for women, all the phantom mammograms, nutritional counseling, pap smears and whatever else they put on the humanitarian menu, you might want to stop reading now.V If you continue, you will see why I consider a Planned Parenthood clinic to be no different from the killing fields of Cambodia.

Planned Parenthood and "Black Lives Matter" divide Democrats.  [Scroll down]  Some liberals have rushed to Planned Parenthood's defense.  The videos were taped by abortion opponents operating under false pretenses, they say, as if that made them inauthentic.  And they deny that the fetal parts are sold at a profit (which is illegal) though the officials seem unconcerned about the possibility that their fees will exceed expenses.  The 2012 Obama campaign appealed to single women by suggesting that without Obamacare's contraception mandate, contraceptives would somehow be unavailable — a favorable way to frame the abortion issue.  But the Planned Parenthood videos are, in the words of Democratic columnist Kirsten Powers, "stomach-turning stuff."

President Obama to Abortionists: 'Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.'.  Planned Parenthood pays no taxes.  Under President Obama, made more than $500 million in profits, but they claim to be a "non-profit" organization.  They kill more 800 children every day.  And they have from the earliest days targeted minority women.  They once had a "Negro Ministers" project designed to recruit black pastors to push first birth control and then abortion in minority neighborhoods.  Now, in two startling videos, we have seen Planned Parenthood leaders engaged in a ghoulish traffic in the organs of unborn children whom they have killed.

A New Dark Age.  Set aside the legality of what Nucatola describes.  Do Americans want hundreds of millions of tax dollars provided to an organization that harvests and sells the body parts of aborted babies as a potentially lucrative sideline business?  Do Americans want to be associated in any way with an organization with the moral mindset exhibited by Nucatola?  That Americans were stunned by those tapes is undeniable.  People are not faking their moral revulsion.  Indeed, "pro-abortion rights" Democrats are hiding in the weeds because they rightly sense that the disgust is widespread and genuine.  Yet there are questions raised by what these tapes reveal that apply to all of us.  Were we really in the dark?  Were we unaware that 55 million unborn have been killed since Roe, many by such crushing methods as described by Nucatola?

13 Things You Probably Don't Know About Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger.  Planned Parenthood, engulfed in a scandal following the release of two undercover videos, is the largest abortion provider in the United States.  On its website, the organization compliments Margaret Sanger as one of the pro-choice movement's "great heroes."  Sanger started the American Birth Control League in 1921; it became part of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942. [...] Here are 13 things Sanger said during her lifetime.

So Planned Parenthood Sells Babies' Body Parts: Is It a Scandal?  It is hard to see how CMP's videos could be "dishonest" or "deceptive."  They show what they show.  The organization posted the videos in full on YouTube.  I watched the second one, a lunch with Dr. Mary Gatter, in its entirety.  It is around an hour and 13 minutes long. [...] This video, like the first one, leaves no doubt whatsoever that Planned Parenthood is in the business of selling aborted babies' organs to private firms engaged in research.  Nor does Planned Parenthood deny doing so.  The debate over the videos has centered largely on whether such sales, as carried out by Planned Parenthood, are illegal.

If You Accurately Quote Abortionists Discussing Organ Harvesting, The Democrats Will Demand An Investigation Of YOU.  The Democrats can't make the Planned Parenthood disaster go away.  They can't rebut the facts.  They can't convince people that the evidence of their own senses is a hoax.  So they're trying to use their political power to protect their investment and maintain their control.

Abortionism and the Banality of Evil.  [Scroll down]  How casually these administrators of infanticide discuss the economic utility of the bodies of those humans they kill!  How blithely they banter about the best techniques of homicide against the most vulnerable of human lives!  This has been a recurring theme in the abortion industry.  Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of NARAL and once one of the leading abortionists in America, describes the true moral nature of Abortionism in his 1996 book, The Hand of God.  The doctor actually aborted one of his own unborn children, relating in chilling frankness:  "I swear to you, I had no feelings aside from the sense of accomplishment, the pride of expertise."

Brit Hume Slams 'Stomach-Turning' Abortion Industry's 'Veil of Antiseptic Tidiness'.  In a July 20 Fox News Special Report, Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume "laid bare the essentially brutal nature of abortion."  And he did it well.  His commanding denouncement of the industry followed the July 14 release of "stomach-turning" Planned Parenthood videos, which showed officials coolly discussing the traffic of fetal body parts while eating lunch.  "Those revelations ... have parted the veil of antiseptic tidiness behind which the abortion industry has for so long operated," Hume declared.

Are we being double-taxed? Why ObamaCare may render Planned Parenthood obsolete.  Now, if my tax dollars are being used to subsidize our national health care program, then why are my tax dollars also being allocated for Planned Parenthood?  This isn't a matter of ethics, but rather, of practicality.  Many of the clinical services Planned Parenthood offers — including Pap smears, breast exams, tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and abortions — can be performed by gynecologists, family practitioners and pediatricians.  The ACA guarantees coverage for the vast majority of women's reproductive needs.  According to Planned Parenthood's 2013-2014 annual report, the latest data available, the organization received nearly $1.15 billion in revenue — $528.4 million of which came from the federal government.

How Planned Parenthood's Chop-Shop, Selling Murdered Babies for Parts, Pads "their Bottom Line".  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 highest ethical and legal standards."

Failure Theater presents Planned Parenthood edition.  For two weeks now we've all been talking about how reprehensible and evil Planned Parenthood is.  If you follow life issues, you didn't need the two videos of alleged doctors haggling over the price of baby parts to know this.  If you were under the impression that Planned Parenthood was that nice, friendly white lady who gave contraceptives to minorities and minor children and poor whites then you might be surprised.  There seems to be about eight states (Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Ohio and Georgia) that have announced investigations.  Congress has said it is investigating. [...] Talk is cheap.

Lankford Introduces Senate Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood While It's Investigated For Selling Baby Body Parts.  Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) is introducing legislation this week that would entirely defund Planned Parenthood for at least a year while the federal government investigates the organization in the wake of several covert videos that show top executives from the group aiming to sell body parts from aborted human babies.  Unless Planned Parenthood stops performing abortions at its facilities, Lankford's bill would pull the taxpayer funding — at least $500 million — for at least one year.

DOJ to review Planned Parenthood videos.  Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday [7/22/2015] her department is going to review all information surrounding the controversial videos of Planned Parenthood officials taken by an anti-abortion group.  "I'm aware of those matters generally from the media, and from some inquiries that have been made to the Department of Justice, and again at this point we're going to review all the information and determine what steps, if any, to take at the appropriate time," Lynch said when asked about the videos at a press conference.

50 Senators Ask HHS to Investigate Planned Parenthood's Harvesting of Aborted Baby Organs.  Fifty U.S. senators, 49 Republicans and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, are calling on Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to investigate Planned Parenthood Federation of America's "practice of harvesting the organs of unborn babies."  Their letter follows the release by the Center for Medical Progress of video footage showing high-level Planned Parenthood officials discussing the practice.

Fears on the left growing for Planned Parenthood.  Critics of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday [7/21/2015] released a second secretly recorded video related to fetal parts, putting the group on the defensive and spurring fears on the left of a new ACORN scandal.  The new video shows Dr. Mary Gatter, a Planned Parenthood official, apparently negotiating the price of fetal tissue for medical research.  The Center for Medical Progress, which is behind the video, says it shows Planned Parenthood illegally profiting off the sale of fetal organs.

Planned Parenthood videos should appall even pro-choice advocates.  The video came as a bombshell.  Selling fetal organs for profit is illegal under federal law, yet [Dr. Deborah] Nucatola appears quite candid in describing Planned Parenthood's lively commercial interest in human tissue from abortion.  She is alert to market demand — "I'd say a lot of people want liver," she tells her lunch companions — and understands how to carry out an abortion to maximize the quality of the organs that can be supplied to buyers afterward.  "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that," says Nucatola, "so I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm gonna basically crush below, I'm gonna crush above, and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact."

Crush Planned Parenthood.  This is stomach-turning stuff.  But the problem here is not one of tone.  It's the crushing.  It's the organ harvesting of fetuses that abortion-rights activists want us to believe have no more moral value than a fingernail.  It's the lie that these are not human beings worthy of protection.  There is no nice way to talk about this.  As my friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, "It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them."  [Cecile] Richards worked to discredit the video by complaining it was "heavily edited."  But the nearly three-hour unedited video — a nauseating journey through the inner workings of the abortion industry — was posted at the same time as the edited video.  Richards intoned menacingly that the video was "secretly recorded."  So what?

Alveda King to Congressional Black Caucus: Lead Investigations of Planned Parenthood.  Dear Congressional Black Caucus, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies' body parts.  If they or anyone else had been exposed for harvesting and selling animal body parts, there would be such an outrage from the left and right.  "Save the whales!  Save the dolphins!  Save the doggies and cats!" people would declare.  But for some reason it seems to be okay to chop up the unborn babies and harvest their body parts.

Legality of Planned Parenthood fetal organ donations questioned after second video.  A second undercover video with a Planned Parenthood official has sharpened the focus on whether the organization is violating federal law governing the donation of fetal tissue and organs from abortions.  The latest video, released Tuesday [7/21/2015] by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress as part of a three-year investigation, shows Planned Parenthood's Dr. Mary Gatter haggling over the price of aborted fetal tissue and contemplating the use of an alternative abortion method to obtain an intact fetus.

Evil with salad and a nice red wine.  When we think of evil, we think of something violent or demonic, something filled with hatred and wretchedly hungry to devour the good.  But what if evil eats a salad at lunch and is polite, speaking rationally with nice table manners?  I've just seen a video where evil casually spears lettuce on a fork and calmly, scientifically, discusses the market for the body parts of aborted fetuses, while sipping a glass of wine.

Medical Monsters vs. Life-Giving Angels.  Another week, another money-grubbing Planned Parenthood baby-parts harvester exposed.  In the second devastating installment of a three-year journalism investigation, the Center for Medical Progress on Monday released undercover video of another top abortion industry doctor haggling over the sale of "intact" unborn baby parts.

Rand: GOP Has 'Run Away' From Abortion, 'No Reason' for PP 'Other Than Abortion'.  [Senator] Rand [Paul] added that he doesn't accept the apology of Planned Parenthood's director, and that "everything Planned Parenthood does other than abortion, is done by community health clinics.  There is no reason in the world to have Planned Parenthood, other than abortion, no taxpayer dollar should go to it because they are indirectly, if not directly, paying for abortion.  All of the stuff that Planned Parenthood says they do for people, it can be done through community health clinics, which have gotten a ton of money in the last few years.  We should stop all funding for Planned Parenthood."

Meet the 41 Companies That Donate Directly to Planned Parenthood.  The first video, released last week, showed Planned Parenthood senior executive Dr. Deborah Nucatola meeting with actors portraying buyers from a "human biologics company."  The "buyers" discussed the sale of fetal body parts with Nucatola over lunch.  In the second video, released today [7/21/2015], Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood's medical directors council, is seen negotiating the price of aborted fetal body parts.  Here are the 41 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood. [...]

Planned Parenthood: We Got $528.4 Million in Taxpayer Funds in One Year.  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.  That means it received an average of $1,447,671 in taxpayer funds per day and an average of $60,320 every hour.

Hoyer: 'I Reject Any Premise that Planned Parenthood is Harvesting Fetal Organs, or Body Parts'.  On Capitol Hill, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer, "In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood said it did more than 327,000 abortions in fiscal year 2013.  Recent reports indicate that Planned Parenthood doctors have been harvesting tissue from aborted babies.  So should federal taxpayer dollars be required to subsidize Planned Parenthood or should Congress cut off all federal funding?"  Hoyer responded, "Look, I don't accept the premise that Planned Parenthood is 'harvesting' anything.  Planned Parenthood is doing very, very important services for literally hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of women as relates to their health."

Sen. Ted Cruz speaks out against Planned Parenthood, vows to defund it through bill.  Both Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have vowed to defund Planned Parenthood as a second undercover video unleashed a new storm of controversy surrounding the non-profit organization.  In addition to an amendment that would fully repeal President Obama's Affordable Care Act, Cruz's office said on Tuesday that the Texas lawmaker is planning to file an amendment on a six-year highway and transit bill to eliminate all federal funding for the non-profit, which provides reproductive health services that include abortion.

Second secretly recorded Planned Parenthood video fuels storm.  A second secretly recorded video released by an anti-abortion rights group appears to show an official from Planned Parenthood negotiating prices for selling fetal tissue.  The new video from the Center for Medical Progress highlights a discussion between a woman posing as a buyer of human tissue, who is recording the video, and a woman the group identifies as Dr. Mary Gatter, a Planned Parenthood official.

NY Times Very Upset Over Planned Parenthood Sting.  [Scroll down]  Of course, the rest of the editorial is all about protecting PP, and attacking the group that shot the videos.  There is no concern that PP is illegally selling aborted baby parts.  No outrage.  Heck, they aren't even upset that PP was using ultrasound to make the abortion cleaner to get the parts.  Aren't abortion on demand proponents against ultrasound for abortion?

More about The New York Times.

Second Planned Parenthood baby body part selling video may be worse than the first.  After the last Baby Body Parts Sales video we were promised that there were more to come and the next shoe seems to have dropped today.  Life News has released a second video, this one with Mary Gatter, a senior medical director with PP in California.  In a lunch meeting with individuals posing as representatives of a biotech firm, Gatter is asked numerous questions about the possibility of purchasing fetal organ tissue from Planned Parenthood clinics and her responses are once again rather ghastly in the cavalier tone she takes.

Dr. Mengele, I Presume.  [Scroll down]  "Dr." Nucatola made the bad career move recently of holding forth over a two-plus hour lunch meeting with two undercover reporters who videotaped the whole thing.  And therein she explained in the most cavalier and ruthless terms the cottage industry the PP has been engaging in for fun and profit for an unknown number of years.  They focus for this awful enterprise on the more mature babies — the ones old enough to have a chance of survival if their mothers love them enough to keep them — and once they have killed and delivered them, yup, you guessed it, they harvest their little organs and sell them for "medical research."  Livers are always popular, she explains, but recently hearts, lungs and heads have been in greater demand.

New Video Shows Another Planned Parenthood Doctor Haggling Price of Baby Body Parts.  In the second video released today [7/21/2015] by the Center for Medical Progress, yet another senior medical adviser to Planned Parenthood of America appears to negotiate the price of selling baby body parts to actors playing entrepreneurs from a start-up biotech firm.

Carly Fiorina Decries 'Moral Depravity' of Planned Parenthood.  In a new video of her own, Carly Fiorina calls out Democrats for protecting abortion in America rather than women and the basic human rights of the unborn innocent. [...] She urges the defunding of Planned Parenthood and the Senate's passages of the Pain-Capable Child Protection Act.

It's time to defund Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood is in full damage control mode.  It is working on impugning the credibility of pro-life undercover investigators from the Center for Medical Progress who just today released another video on the abortion provider's barbaric practices.  It is also defending the technical legality of its practice of harvesting organs for a fee during abortions, deploying its allies in the media and the White House, and seeking desperately to restore its carefully constructed and ferociously defended image as an organization primarily focused on women's health, and only secondarily involved in providing abortions.

Guess Who's Getting Big Bucks from Planned Parenthood?  We know that Planned Parenthood receives about half a billion dollars of U.S. taxpayer money each year.  Most states also give the state Planned Parenthood affiliates millions of tax dollars annually.  And, Planned Parenthood makes close to half a billion dollars from doing abortions every year.  No one knows yet just how much Planned Parenthood makes in selling the dismembered part of aborted babies.  With all of that money flowing in, it is not surprising that Planned Parenthood spreads a considerable amount of that money to sympathetic politicians.  They pay to elect pro-abort candidates to make sure there are as few restrictions on abortion in America as possible.  But now, it has been revealed who one of the main recipients of Planned Parenthood's "blood money" is.

New Undercover Video Shows Planned Parenthood Executive Haggling Over Price of Aborted Baby Body Parts.  A second undercover video was released today allegedly showing a Planned Parenthood senior executive negotiating the price of aborted fetal body parts.  The video, released by the Center for Media Progress, adds to allegations that Planned Parenthood is profiting from fetal tissue donation.  It follows the release of an earlier undercover video that sparked congressional investigations and calls for federal defunding of the organization.

Planned Parenthood defector says loophole lets clinics profit from fetal organ sales.  Abby Johnson wasn't horrified by last week's undercover video showing a Planned Parenthood doctor describing over lunch and wine how to "crush" a fetus during an abortion to preserve the organs because she's been there.  In her previous role as clinic director for a Planned Parenthood facility in East Texas, Ms. Johnson said part of her job was to sift through the aborted fetal tissue and organs, pack them in a container with dry ice, check the consent form and "ship them off."

Liberal theory of justice doesn't support abortion.  [Scroll down]  Which brings me to Deborah Nucatola, senior director of "medical research" at Planned Parenthood, the Wal-Mart of the abortion industry.  Dr. Nucatola was caught on video apparently haggling over the market price for fetal body parts.  (Planned Parenthood would prefer it be called the "reimbursement" rate.)  "I'd say a lot of people want liver," she explained to undercover pro-life operatives pretending to be buyers from a biotech company.  So she and her harvesters use ultrasound techniques to figure out where the liver and other desirable organs are.  That way they can be "cognizant of where you put your graspers."

Feds Paid Baby Organ-Harvesting Doc For Advice On 'Healthy Baby' Births.  Deborah Nucatola — the Planned Parenthood doc with the stone-cold heart and the lucrative skill of "crushing" babies in just the right spot — has been advising the Obama administration on family planning policy since 2010.  From April 2010 through April 2014, Nucatola was one of several experts the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs (OPA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Reproductive Health tasked with creating federal guidelines for "quality family planning services." [...] Leave it to the Obama administration to tap an abortionist for "expert" advice on ensuring that children are "born healthy" — an abortionist, mind you, who relishes butchering a "17-weeker" and bagging up a tiny infant's "heart, lung, liver" to sell for a few extra bucks.  But there's more.  Nucatola is not the only abortionist in the government's family-planning "Expert Work Group."

Buy a Baby's Liver For Just $24K!.  Aside from the obvious question of how many lives have been saved through the use of baby livers (as opposed to livers donated from those who died outside the womb), even that question begs a larger question, namely:  How does the allegedly humanitarian use of a barbarically obtained item justify (or, even minimize) the barbarous practice?  And since Planned Parenthood makes more money the more babies it aborts, and since StemExpress is surely a for-profit company, doesn't that mean that the more abortions, the more profits for all?

Planned Parenthood Suddenly Claims It Pays Women For Organ Harvesting.  The transcript and videos are clear that Nucatola is discussing how much money to sell aborted baby parts for.  But in this backgrounder, Planned Parenthood is claiming the discussion was actually about how abortion clinics pay mothers $30 to $100 per abortion if they donate the body of their child.  That's certainly an interesting claim.  Journalists should ask them to explain more about this payment program, as well as what the total payment they receive from purchasing companies for the bodies of aborted children.  If they claim they're paying mothers $30 to $100 for the bodies of their aborted babies, how much more than that are they claiming to sell the bodies for since, as they state, there are many "additional expenses related [to] tissue donation"?

Take A Seat At Planned Parenthood Theater.  The dialogue in this theater scene uses only direct quotes from the recent Planned Parenthood baby-part-selling video.

ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN Sunday Shows Ignore Planned Parenthood Scandal.  Last week, the Center for Medical Progress released a damning undercover video in which a senior official at Planned Parenthood discussed the organization's practice of manipulating an abortion to salvage baby parts to be sold for medical research, but ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN all ignored the story during their Sunday morning political talk shows (ABC's This Week, CBS's Face the Nation, CNN's State of the Union and NBC's Meet the Press).  Fox News Sunday was the only one to cover Planned Parenthood during its broadcast, and devoted more than seven minutes to the controversial video.

For Planned Parenthood Black Livers Matter.  If you have ever witnessed one of those "spontaneous" pro-abortion demonstrations held in Washington whenever Congress contemplates curtailing taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, you may have noticed that there was something missing — African-American demonstrators.  This is odd, considering that black women are far more likely to have abortions than are their Caucasian counterparts.  And, examined in light of the now infamous video of a white Planned Parenthood official discussing how to crush a baby without damaging marketable livers and other organs, it is particularly ominous.  Why?  Because the terminated baby will probably have been black, and that is no coincidence

Planned Parenthood and the Antithesis of Love.  Planned Parenthood, according to reports, is a leading reason why the White House will not relent and has kept the Little Sisters of the Poor in court fighting the coercive Obamacare insurance mandate for abortion pills, contraception, and female sterilization.  Is there any reason but a blinding ideology why you would want to victimize self-sacrificial women who serve the elderly poor?  And, during his celebration of Planned Parenthood, President Obama took time to criticize the organization's enemies:  "The fact is, after decades of progress, there's [sic] still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century.  And they've been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women's health."

Ideas For Reporters Struggling To Cover Planned Parenthood.  A few reporters wrote an initial story on the undercover video that caught the senior director for medical services at Planned Parenthood discussing the harvesting of organs from the unborn children killed by abortion.  Another few reporters noted early political repercussions that followed, including the launching of state and federal investigations. [...] But given the many angles that could be covered, the lack of ferocity with which they're tackling this story is noticeable.  Compare, for instance, what happened in the last month with coverage of Confederate flags.

The Media Used To Do Abortion Stings, Not Slam Undercover Work.  After the release of a shocking video by the Center for Medical Progress that shows an abortion doctor talking about harvesting and selling baby parts, the mainstream media refused to cover the story.  No surprise there.  They also blacked out the grisly realities of Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor who severed babies' necks and drowned them in toilets.  What the media in our country used to do — investigate and expose the truth — has been left to groups like the nonprofit Center for Medical Progress (CMP).  Through the Human Capital project, these citizen journalists are undergoing extensive sting operations to document how Planned Parenthood sells body parts of aborted babies — a worthy undertaking considering the seriousness of the practice, the ethical questions swirling around it, and the fact that taxpayer money helps fund it.  These journalists have been the watchdogs the mainstream media used to be.

Sen. Lankford on Planned Parenthood Harvesting Human Parts: 'It Was a Human All The Way Through'.  Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) made an emotional argument on the Senate floor, questioning how Planned Parenthood places value on human body parts but not the life of the child, "You can't say in one moment that's not a human and then sell it for the next moment as a human organ and say now suddenly it is.  It was a human all the way through."  Lankford made the comments on the Senate Floor Thursday [7/16/2015] in reaction to the viral undercover video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the organizations abortion practices to harvest body parts.

What abortion is: Getting past the spin.  Despite repeated requests, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen's office refuses to comment on the video released last Tuesday showing Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services describing how the organization's abortionists "crush" an infant so that its most valuable body parts can be saved and sold to buyers.  Her silence says a lot about the abortion debate in this country.  Why should Shaheen comment? Planned Parenthood is her 15th largest campaign contributor.  She has been a strong and vocal advocate of public funding for the organization. [...] Shaheen's silence last week is important because it shows just how much the abortion industry depends on euphemisms and spin.  It is one thing to shout support for a "woman's right to choose," it is another to defend the actual horrific practice of killing and dismembering human infants.

Reactions Vary to Video on Baby Parts Sales.  "That's a human being we're talking about.  It doesn't bring me any comfort to know that one child is torn apart so maybe they can do research on the child's organs so at some future moment (they can) help a different child," said an emotional Senator James Lankford.  He was speaking from the floor of the U.S. Senate in reaction to the ghastly video that caught a high-ranking official with Planned Parenthood speaking nonchalantly about the selling of the body parts of aborted babies.  Senator Lankford, a Republican from Oklahoma, noted the irony that the Senate was in the midst of discussions on the "humane treatment of animals being put down," while at the same time, "there were children still being aborted with an instrument reaching into a mother, tearing apart a child."  But in addition to that, the abortionists of Planned Parenthood were careful to protect "certain organs because those organs would be valuable to sell."

Let's Face It: Planned Parenthood Is Evil.  In America, it's illegal to donate money to a candidate without first reporting it to the government.  Even then, if you give more than is permissible, you could end up in jail.  In this country, you can't add trans fats to your foods or smoke cigarettes in your own bar.  Here, the Little Sisters of the Poor can't tell the state they'd rather not buy condoms, and bakers can't tell a couple they'd rather not participate in their wedding.  But it's completely legal to kill an unborn baby for convenience and then sell its parts for cash.

Planned Parenthood mum on whether docs skirting law by altering abortion methods.  The video was secretly shot by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress last year and released this week to the media.  The video shows Planned Parenthood medical director Deborah Nucatola at a lunch with two people she believed were representatives of a biotech firm, but who were really with CMP.  It shows her ostensibly talking about the best way fetal organs could be extracted from the mother.  "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm gonna basically crush below, I'm gonna crush above, and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact," Nucatola says.

White House backs Planned Parenthood's explanation for shocking abortion video.  President Obama's top spokesman indicated that the White House is taking Planned Parenthood at its word when the group says it follows all ethical and legal guidelines when it comes to abortion, even after a video was released indicating the group may be violating the law by profiting from donated fetal tissue from abortions.  The Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, secretly filmed a senior director of Planned Parenthood talking about the sale of body parts of aborted embryos.  That director at one point indicated that it's possible to profit from these exchanges, an act that is against the law.

CNN column: The face of modern America is "discussing pulverized lungs and hearts between mouthfuls of salad".  [Scroll down]  It's the stripping of the euphemisms, of the polite vocabulary for a brutal act, that had Planned Parenthood and its apologists panicking this week.  Deborah Nucatola revealed the exploitation of women inherent in this enterprise, putting their needs as secondary to the desire to harvest organs while they sell the procedure as nothing more than removing a "clump of cells."  Nucatola only exposed the cynicism of the argument that the fetuses aren't human beings by describing the keen desire Planned Parenthood has in protecting the human organs retrieved from killing the humans that were developing them.

Perry to Halperin: So you're all good with that Planned Parenthood video, eh?  I'm not exactly sure where Mark Halperin thought he would take Rick Perry in this exchange, but he clearly didn't expect Perry to lead him into this trap.  On Morning Joe yesterday [7/16/2015], Halperin challenged Perry to more or less endorse Planned Parenthood's government funding by forcing Perry to acknowledge that they provide at least some valuable services, which seems like a very weird form of damage control coming from a journalist.  Shouldn't reporters ask Planned Parenthood to defend themselves in this manner?  Or ask Democrats who want to keep using taxpayer dollars to float Planned Parenthood's abortion mills?

Planned Parenthood video an ugly mirror for America.  This is one horror movie that stays with you long after you've seen it.  An anti-abortion group has released a video that it says shows a Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of organs and tissue.  Planned Parenthood says it's heavily edited and misleading — and it might be right.  But, frankly, the detail is up for lawyers to debate.  What matters about this video is what it appears to reveal about the reality behind America's sanitized image of abortion; the reality of what an abortion is and how it morally compromises us all.

Ohio AG Launches Investigation Into Planned Parenthood's Trafficking Of Baby Parts.  Ohio Attorney Mike DeWine has launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood's alleged practice of selling aborted baby parts after a video was released earlier this week.  The Attorney General's office oversees non profits.  Since Planned Parenthood has non profit status, this is the avenue DeWine is using for the investigation.  If Planned Parenthood loses it's non profit status as a result of these actions, they will lose their state funding and their tax exempt status.

Planned Parenthood apologizes for exec's 'tone' in video.  The president of Planned Parenthood on Thursday [7/16/2015] apologized for the "tone and statements" of its chief medical officer, whose candid comments about fetal organ removal have generated heavy attacks against the organization.  "Our top priority is the passionate care that we provide.  In our video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion," president Cecile Richards said in a video statement released Thursday afternoon [7/16/2015].  "This is unacceptable, and I personally apologize for the staff member's tone and statements," she said.

Lawmakers Knew About Planned Parenthood Video Weeks Ago.  When an undercover video of a Planned Parenthood executive casually discussing the harvesting of fetal tissue and organs went viral Tuesday [7/14/2015], House Republicans took notice, with party leaders calling for investigations just one day later.  Speaker John A. Boehner and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued terse statements, the Judiciary and Energy and Commerce committees announced hearings and Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., called for a Justice Department probe into whether the nation's largest abortion provider broke the law in supplying the tissue to medical research firms.  All in all, it was a furious, news-cycle dominating flurry of Capitol Hill reaction — to a video that at least two top Republicans said they first saw weeks ago.

Planned Parenthood's Real Crime: Making Us Notice.  "Infanticide" called it what it was:  a homicide, a killing of a child who was no less possessed of human dignity for not yet having been born.  "Abortion" was a gentler term — still pejorative because the culture back then remained repulsed by infanticide; yet pregnant, as it were, with ambiguity about exactly what was being aborted — the child's life, or the mother's pregnancy?  And with the abortionist generally being a doctor, "abortion" connoted that "pregnancy" was not about a life to be nourished but a medical condition to be treated.  A "medical condition" is suggestive of illness, not life.  And if we were now just talking about how to treat a medical condition, not killing a child, then abortion became just one option on the menu of "choice."  And whose choice?  Not the child whose life is ended.  The object of these language games is to vanish the child from our consciousness.

Planned Parenthood video shows an apalling trivialization of life.  At first, it seemed like an Internet hoax.  A doctor, over a glass of wine and a salad, coldly describes the extraction and monetization of fetal body parts.  Surely this is some kind of sick parody.  But it is not a hoax.  It is Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, Deborah Nucatola, caught in a sting video by an antiabortion group.  Planned Parenthood's reaction essentially confirmed the conversation as genuine, but insisted that it concerned the extraction of tissue for scientific research "under the highest ethical and legal standards."

Planned Parenthood president: Hey, sorry about that doctor's tone when she talked about crushing babies and removing their organs.  [Scroll down]  I'm interested to hear more about the "reimbursement" process in all this.  Planned Parenthood's PR firm issued talking points recently to assist the many, many sympathetic reporters in the media who are eager to help them spin this story, and one point stressed was that Nucatola's reference in the video to a $30-100 fee was misunderstood.  It wasn't PP that was receiving that money, the firm insisted, it was "the range of reimbursement that patients can receive after stating they wish to donate any tissue after a procedure."  So ... the woman having the abortion gets a cut of the deal too?

Planned Parenthood and the Statist Abyss.  On Tuesday [7/14/2015], a sickening undercover video blew up the Internet, and for good reason: Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, was caught on camera yukking it up over red wine and a fancy salad.  The topic:  how to best kill an unborn baby in order to preserve, and then distribute, the resulting dead baby parts through a taxpayer-subsidized organization.

The Left's telling aversion to facts and plain language on abortion.  When is organ harvesting no longer organ harvesting?  When do biotech companies get described simply as medical researchers?  When are human beings described as the products of conception?  When abortion is the issue at hand, of course.  In a new undercover video, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discusses how different clinics deal in the organs of the babies they abort.  The episode has not only demonstrated the gruesome underside of the abortion business, but also the denial and obfuscation required to embrace the absolutist pro-choice position held by Planned Parenthood and its allies in politics and the media.

Planned Parenthood's apology confronted by pledge of 'proof'.  As the president of Planned Parenthood took to YouTube to vehemently deny making money from the sale of aborted babies' body parts, the anti-abortion group behind a stunning video exposing the alleged practice claims it has more proof.  "I want to be really clear.  The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true," the organization's president, Cecile Richards, said in a video posted yesterday [7/18/2015].  But anti-abortion crusader Troy Newman, a consultant on the three-year investigation by the Center for Medical Progress into the alleged fetal farming, said the group's next video "is going to counteract that."

Perry Turns Planned Parenthood Fetal Body Parts Scandal Back on MSNBC's Halperin.  As usual, much of the press has responded to scandalous behavior by leftist sacred cows by making the story about Republicans criticizing the actions instead of the scandal itself.  On the one hand, are we really supposed to believe that only pro-lifers are horrified by the evidence that Planned Parenthood, aka Planned Parthood, sells the body parts of aborted preborn babies? [...] I hope not.  So it's more than fair to turn the question around on anyone who tries to isolate the objections in that way.

Cash-4-Cadavers: What's So Shocking about Selling Baby Parts?  When it comes to ghoulish zeal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter has nothing on Planned Parenthood's Dr. Deborah Nucatola, except for maybe a few fava beans to accompany his talk of consuming a man's liver.  Whether or not the red wine Dr. Nucatola swigged with her salad was a nice Chianti remains unknown.  A morsel of information that should give pause to Obamacare fans is the realization that the esteemed doctor is also the senior director of medical services at Barack Obama's favorite taxpayer-funded women's health clinic/death factory, Planned Parenthood.

The United States is a Dying Country.  This nation is repeating the disastrous evolutionary process that has plagued so many failed countries throughout mankind's history.  This process begins with a society willing to reject the fundamental concept that is necessary for any nation to thrive and prosper:  respect for the uniqueness of each individual and self-determination.  Recently the revelation that Planned Parenthood is selling, without a second thought, body parts of aborted human beings for profit is a significant indicator of the depth to which this nation has fallen over the past 45 years.

Planned Parenthood video shows commodification of death.  In 2013, the criminal trial of Kermit Gosnell and his abortion "house of horrors" shocked the nation.  For years, state inspectors had overlooked numerous egregious violations at Gosnell's Philadelphia facility — it was a sanitary disaster, he was killing already-delivered babies and it was also a fire-trap from which patients could not be safely extracted in case of emergencies resulting from his quackery.  Worst of all, at least two women had died from botched abortions there, and countless others had been maimed.  That case showed the perils of ideologically motivated under-regulation and under-enforcement in a medical field that, to put it mildly, doesn't always attract the best, brightest or most scrupulous of medical practitioners.

Disgraced Planned Parenthood Official Works For White House Staff — Her 'Right-Wing' Hatred Exposed.  Disgraced Planned Parenthood official Deborah Nucatola's shocking personal work history is coming to light.  Records reveal that Nucatola was employed by a former White House staffer at the time that she was selling aborted baby fetus parts.  A staunch political advocate, Nucatola railed against the "right-wing" Bush administration.  What's more, she so enjoyed her work in the abortion industry that she touted a T-shirt celebrating a drug used in the practice.

Scott Walker: 'We Defunded Planned Parenthood' in Wisconsin.  During his first trip to New Hampshire since the launch of his presidential campaign, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker outlined his resume as a conservative governor of a blue state, including lowering taxes, reducing regulations, and cutting funding for Planned Parenthood.  "We defunded Planned Parenthood, which is particularly important these days in light of what we've seen on video," Walker said during a campaign stop at Joey's Diner.  Walker was referencing an undercover video released on Tuesday [7/14/2015] by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing the sale of fetal organs such as hearts, lungs and livers at affiliates of the nation's largest abortion provider.

We cannot be a nation that does this to our children.  I realize that our nation remains divided on the issue of abortion, but surely we are not divided on the procurement and sale of human organs.  Babies were discussed, in the video, like they are an item to be casually harvested then purchased in a grocery story.  How far have we come as a society when we resort to harvesting body parts for monetary gain?

Deborah Nucatola: who is she?  Deborah Nucatola is the twenty-first [century] version of Margaret Sanger.  But Deborah Nucatola is even more evil than Sanger.  I don't know what's more sickening, Deborah Nucatola freely admitting to selling baby body parts on behalf of Planned Parenthood, or the fact that our tax dollars are used to fund Planned Parenthood and baby part sales every year.  In [a] video released by the Center of Medical Progress, Debroah Nucatola continues to stuff her face, and drink wine while discussing the selling of aborted baby parts.  It's beyond chilling.

Planned Parenthood video prompts GOP probe of potential illegal sale of fetal body parts.  The day after the release of an undercover video, House Republicans promised they will "dig deep" into the potential illegal sale of fetal body parts for research and Planned Parenthood Federation of America's involvement with it.  "There will be questions raised about what was legal and what was not legal.  But above all, we believe Americans have a right to know what is occurring, and understand that that which is legal is not necessarily moral and ethical," said Rep. Tim Murphy, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on oversight and investigations.

Shock: ABC, CBS Cover Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Scandal; Video by 'Anti-Abortion Activists'.  Following a censorship on Tuesday night [7/14/2015] and Wednesday morning of video showing Planned Parenthood senior director of medical services Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussing the selling of body parts from aborted babies, ABC and CBS ended their blackouts on Wednesday night with coverage on their evening newscasts, but made sure to hype the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) as "anti-abortion activists."  On the Spanish-language networks, however, the story remained much the same on Wednesday night as MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision all continued their refusal to even acknowledge the video.

Company Purchasing Aborted Baby Parts from Planned Parenthood Takes Website Down.  A business called Stem Express to which Planned Parenthood allegedly sells body parts of aborted fetuses has taken down its website for "maintenance."  Life News reported Wednesday that the site for the business went into "maintenance mode" after video surfaced Tuesday of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, discussing the organization's sale of body parts from aborted babies to Stem Express.  According to screenshots obtained of the Stem Express website, the site was active as of Tuesday [7/14/2015].  Video of the Planned Parenthood doctor touting the sale of heart, liver and other body parts of aborted babies was captured undercover by the non-profit organization Center for Medical Progress.

Questions the Media Needs to Ask Democrats about the Planned Parenthood Videotape.  The media loves to browbeat Republican presidential candidates with "gotcha" questions — questions designed to trip up or embarrass a candidate by making him or her seem extreme, uncompassionate, or incompetent.  The questions can be about almost anything, but the darlings are religion, sex, evolution, gay marriage, and abortion. [...] But reporters are nothing if not persistent, and they'll take any controversy they can get their hands on and shove it in the face of a Republican candidate to get an unscripted — and hopefully damaging — response.  Seldom do reporters pose the same kinds of gotcha questions to Democrat candidates, preferring instead softballs that gently encourage candidates to explain their positions on their own terms.

Questions the Media Needs to Ask Democrats about the Planned Parenthood Videotape.  [Scroll down]  Now an undercover videotape has emerged that shows a Planned Parenthood executive sipping wine while explaining how the organization harvests body parts of aborted fetuses and sell them.  "I'd say a lot of people want liver," says Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planner Parenthood.  "And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they'll know where they're putting their forceps."  In the videotape, Dr. Nucatola blithely talks about how to harvest the desired organs without doing damage to them — even if it means "crushing" other parts.

Planned Parenthood's Still Legally Free To Traffic Baby Body Parts.  Planned Parenthood says a video of one of its executives bragging about selling fetal organs was heavily edited and that they haven't broken any laws.  It appears they might be right.

Planned Parenthood and other abortion ghouls.  The video of a Planned Parenthood director, Deborah Nucatola, graphically discussing over lunch the harvesting of organs from aborted fetuses, and how their intact livers bring top dollar to researchers has gone viral.  But the truth of this abortion business is much, much worse.  Scientists might see some value in these organs for this practice, In fact, the PR firm for PP said the organization's harvesting of human organs is a "humanitarian undertaking."  "Aborted pregnancy tissue donation and research are humanitarian undertakings that hold the potential to cure disease, save lives, and ameliorate suffering[.]"  Oh really?  Can we put our taste buds into that category because companies like Pepsi, Kraft, Nestles, and many other companies get their flavor enhancers from a biotech company that uses clones of old fetal cell lines.

Megyn Kelly Sounds Off About Planned Parenthood Video.  A newly released undercover video is raising questions about Planned Parenthood's practices.  The shocking video, shot last July, shows Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical research, having lunch with two undercover Center for Medical Progress activists.  Nucatola discusses the body parts of aborted fetus and how they are in demand, Fox News reported.  Megyn Kelly and Dana Loesch got into a heated debate with Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman about the content of the video tonight [7/15/2015].

Mainstream Media Refuses To Give Planned Parenthood Scandal Legs. The Question Is: Why?  Whenever abortion pops into the picture, emotions run high.  But where do mainstream newspapers get off simply not reporting the news?  This is what happened Tuesday when a video of a Planned Parenthood exec discussing the sale of aborted fetus parts over lunch went viral.  Who eats salad while discussing fetal livers?

Planned Parenthood's Body Parts Racket.  Planned Parenthood has been caught on undercover video admitting that it targets and harvests body parts of aborted fetuses for profit.  This is illegal.  Why are taxpayers still funding this group?

Boehner launches congressional probe of Planned Parenthood.  Top Republican leaders in the House have instructed relevant committees to investigate Planned Parenthood, after a video was made public indicating that the group may be selling fetal body parts for profit.  House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, released a statement saying that "nothing is more precious than life," and that if Planned Parenthood is really working to "monetize an unborn child," then "we must all act."

The Bad, Worse, & Ugly: Media Coverage of Planned Parenthood's Organ Harvesting Scandal.  At 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning [7/14/2015], a pro-life group released two videos showing Planned Parenthood executive Deborah Nucatola munching on a salad and sipping red wine while discussing the harvesting of organs from babies killed by abortion.  One was a nearly nine-minute edited video of the nearly three-hour discussion.  The other was the unedited discussion.  Because of the graphic nature of the discussion — Nucatola specifically discusses altering abortion procedures to procure hearts, brains, lungs, and livers from the babies whose lives Planned Parenthood ends by abortion — the video immediately lit up social media.

Anti-abortion group: More Planned Parenthood videos coming.  Congressional Republicans say they will launch an investigation of Planned Parenthood as a result of an undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, asserting the women's health organization sells body parts from abortions.  The founder of the Center for Medical Progress also told CBS News his group has up to a dozen additional videos of top officials from Planned Parenthood across the country talking about the sales, which will be released in the days to come, reports CBS News correspondent Jan Crawford.

Planned Parenthood: The Next Relic From Our Racist Past That Must Be Purged.  Since 1973, Planned Parenthood has helped execute 13 million black babies before they were born.  That's more than 20 times the total number of Union soldiers the racist Confederate army killed, wounded or captured during the entire Civil War.  If the carcasses of all the black babies Planned Parenthood has killed and dismembered were its own state, it would be the 5th-most populous state in the nation.  That, my dear comrades, is a lot of dead babies.  And this systematic extermination of black America isn't some random coincidence, but rather a well-coordinated plot that dates back to the death merchant's original founder.  It's been suggested that if we're going to replace Founding Father Alexander Hamilton's likeness on our currency with that of an influential woman, why not go with Margaret Sanger?

Our Broken Country.  In case you missed it, Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services was caught on tape (released today) essentially admitting to the sale (by Planned Parenthood affiliates) of aborted baby parts.  Some troglodyte liberals initially suggested that the video was edited unfairly, a curious defense in light of the fact that PPFA wasn't making this claim themselves.  The full video was released this afternoon which indicates why — there is no way to interpret the full interaction in any other light.  As LifeNews notes, some of the film's "greatest moments" include highlights like these: [...]

AP: It's Not Selling Aborted Unborn Baby Parts, It's the 'Disposition of Fetal Remains'.  We've long known that the Associated Press is loathe to refer to unborn children as unborn children, preferring the clinical term "fetus."  But in covering a shocking new story about how Planned Parenthood sells fetal tissue from aborted babies for profit, the AP bent over backwards to use clinical euphemisms to soften the blow of the ghoulish practice.

'A Lot of People Want Liver': Planned Parenthood's Bloody Business.  A lot of people want liver."  So says Planned Parenthood's director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, between bites of what one must assume are fava beans and sips of a nice Chianti, Dr. Nucatola doing a fair impersonation of Dr. Lecter.  She did not know she was being recorded, and that the tissue-procurement firm with which she thought she was doing business was an undercover investigator from the Center for Medical Progress.

Pro-Life Carly Fiorina Responds to Breitbart's Breaking Story on Planned Parenthood.  "I am proudly pro-life.  I believe that every human life has potential and that every human life is precious.  This latest news is tragic and outrageous.  This isn't about "choice."  It's about profiting on the death of the unborn while telling women it's about empowerment."

Planned Parenthood Video Explains Late-Term/Partial-Birth Abortion Movement — Money.  The Center for Medical Progress, a non-profit group "dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances" released undercover video Tuesday [7/14/2015] that appears to show Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, nonchalantly brokering the sale of aborted baby parts.  Suddenly the entire late-term/partial-birth movement makes better sense — MONEY.

Several Dems defend Planned Parenthood.  Several House Democrats are coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood in the wake of a now-viral video that shows its chief medical director graphically detailing the uses for organs of aborted fetuses.  "Planned Parenthood is actually allowed, is my understanding, for scientific research, to use fetal tissue and that is not illegal," said Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), a member of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus and sponsor of numerous abortion-rights bills.

Video of Planned Parenthood official discussing fetal body parts for cash has abortion advocates scrambling.  The latest in a series of pro-life undercover sting videos features to reach the public shows Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical research, Deborah Nucatola, graphically discussing over lunch how to harvest organs from a baby being aborted, and the financial terms under which they could be shipped to medical researchers.  It looks very, very bad, almost as if a big (nine figures in annual revenue) recipient of federal funding is killing babies to sell their parts for cash (a felony under federal law):

Planned Parenthood's PR Firm: Harvesting Organs of Aborted Babies a 'Humanitarian Undertaking'.  In background documents sent to reporters on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood's public relations firm calls the organization's harvesting of human organs a "humanitarian undertaking."  "Aborted pregnancy tissue donation and research are humanitarian undertakings that hold the potential to cure disease, save lives, and ameliorate suffering," according to the "backgrounder" distributed by Camino Public Relations, which has a longstanding relationship with Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Jindal Announces Planned Parenthood Investigation, Halts Licenses for New Abortion Clinic.  Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Tuesday he is directing his state's Department of Health and Hospitals to launch an investigation into Planned Parenthood.  This comes on the heels of the release of an investigative video by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress depicting the abortion giant's chief medical officer speaking about how to abort a baby intact to harvest its body parts for sale.

The Wine-Sipping Butchers of Planned Parenthood.  Hannibal Lecter ain't got nothing on the profit-maximizing abortion ghoul caught on tape hawking aborted baby parts as she swilled wine and nibbled on a gourmet salad.  In newly released undercover footage from the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, seasoned abortionist Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who serves as national senior director of "medical services" at Planned Parenthood, chitter-chattered eagerly about fulfilling the bloodthirsty demand for "intact hearts," "lower extremities" and lungs.  Price tag?  "You know, I would throw a number out," she babbled breezily as she twirled her fork.  "I would say it's probably anywhere from $30 to $100" per specimen.  Hollywood couldn't conjure monsters this chillingly, banally evil.

Planned Parenthood denies group's claim that video shows official discussing sale of fetal organs for research.  An anti-abortion group released a video Tuesday [7/14/2015] it says shows a Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses for use in research.  Planned Parenthood says the video released by the Center for Medical Progress misrepresents the work of the women's health group, but it has the agency on the defensive, and Louisiana governor and GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal announced he's asked the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to investigate Planned Parenthood's activities in the state.

Here's the Company That Buys Aborted Body Parts from Planned Parenthood.  In the gruesome and now viral video that shows a Planned Parenthood medical officer talking to undercover actors posing as biotech entrepreneurs about the prospects of buying fetal body parts, the name of one company pops up several times.  In the context of selling aborted fetal tissue, Dr. Deborah Nucatola is seen and heard discussing her ongoing relationship with a company called StemExpress that works as the middleman between Planned Parenthood affiliates and research institutes that use the body parts in scientific experimentation.

Planned Parenthood Reacts: We're Not Selling Baby Parts — We're Getting Reimbursed for 'Tissue' Donations.  A couple of quick thoughts here.  First, since it's illegal to sell human fetal tissue, we could hardly expect to Planned Parenthood admit to criminal wrongdoing.  Watch the tape again.  Does it appear to you that the discussion deals only with reimbursement?  The Center for Medial Progress — the entity that created the video — has posted a flyer that it claims was distributed to Planned Parenthood clinics and that promises "financial profits" from the "raw materials" that are "usually discarded during obstetrical procedures."  Further inquiry isn't just reasonable, it's necessary.  Second, I have to laugh when Planned Parenthood claims to abide by the "highest ethical and legal standards."  Their business model is an abomination.  And it is pitiful to use the phrase "appropriate consent" to describe the deliberate killing of an innocent human being, with the killing performed in such a way as to preserve a "menu" of the most valuable parts.

Dem Candidates Silent On Alleged Planned Parenthood Felonies.  Democratic presidential candidates were silent in the wake footage released Tuesday [7/14/2015] showing Planned Parenthood's top doctor allegedly describing how the clinics sell the body parts of aborted babies.  None of the declared Democratic presidential candidates — former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Gov. Martin O'Malley, former Sen. Jim Webb, and former Gov. Lincoln Chafee — responded to multiple requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation regarding the video.

GOP Candidates React To Undercover Video Of Planned Parenthood.  Republican presidential candidates are weighing in on the video made public Tuesday [7/14/2015] of a top Planned Parenthood doctor admitting clinics routinely sell body parts after abortions.  "The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization's penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life," said former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.  "Today's video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the systematic harvesting and trafficking of human body parts is shocking and gruesome," said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

The Washington Post tries to put a leftist spin on this scandal:
Undercover video shows Planned Parenthood official discussing fetal organs used for research.  Over lunch at a Los Angeles restaurant, two antiabortion activists posing as employees from a biotech firm met with Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical research.  Armed with cameras, the activists recorded Nucatola talking about Planned Parenthood's work donating fetal tissue to researchers and pressed her on whether the clinics were charging for the organs.  The Center for Medical Progress, which recorded and edited the video, says the footage proves that Planned Parenthood is breaking the law by selling fetal organs.  But the video does not show Nucatola explicitly talking about selling organs.

Rebuttal:
WaPo Gets Planned Parenthood Abortion Organ Harvesting Story Wrong.  The Washington Post appears to be struggling a bit to cover today's blockbuster story about the undercover video of Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling organs from aborted fetuses.  First, they changed the headline to something that's far more friendly to Planned Parenthood without noting the change.  [Screenshots]  Second, the story is substantively wrong.

Taxpayer-Funded Planned Parenthood Sells Baby Parts.  Planned Parenthood thinks it can put a price on a baby:  $30 to $100 per part.  An undercover investigative video released July 14 showed a Planned Parenthood executive confess that her taxpayer-funded organization sells the body parts of aborted babies by using the partial-birth abortion procedure to ensure the baby parts stay intact.  Pro-life leaders challenged the abortion giant after the Center for Medical Progress, a citizen journalist group focused on medical ethics, caught the scene on camera.

Video: Planned Parenthood's profit off of fetal body parts.  Live Action today features another exposé of Planned Parenthood, but this time it's not just one clinic violating state laws on reporting or practices.  The Center for Medical Progress conducted an undercover investigation into PP's operations in sales of fetal body parts, a practice prohibited by federal law, and they went to the executive management of the abortion-mill chain to uncover it.

Jindal orders LA probe, halt to PP license.  It took a few hours for Planned Parenthood to respond to the Center for Medical Progress exposé earlier today [7/14/2015].  LifeNews reports that their VP for communications wants everyone to know there's no real story here.  This is just business as usual.

House Republicans Aim To Strip Planned Parenthood's Funding.  House Republicans released a budget proposal this week that would eliminate Title X funding — which provides funding to Planned Parenthood for contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs — an act pro-abortion advocates immediately characterized as an attack against women.

Two Planned Parenthood workers who taught high school sex-ed, revealed to be sex-toy instructor and 'pleasure activist'.  Parents with students at one California high school recently learned that two Planned Parenthood employees who taught their impressionable children sex education also held down some controversial side jobs.  One of the sex-ed instructors at Acalanes Union High School in Lafayette also taught a class on sex toys at a nearby shop while the other identified herself as a 'pleasure activist' on her now-deleted Twitter profile.  The job history of the two teachers was revealed after parents learned about the school's partnership with Planned Parenthood and demanded the curriculum be changed.

Republican Congress moves to defund Planned Parenthood.  Title X is not the only vehicle by which Planned Parenthood uses the government to dip into Americans' income.  The corporation received $655,000 in public money to be a "navigator" for Obamacare in 2013, plus $75 million through the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), a creature of Obamacare, allegedly for sex education.  (Parents should keep in mind that even if this money is on the level, Planned Parenthood's version of sex education is horrifying.)  In its latest annual report, Planned Parenthood quantifies the total tax money it received at $528.4 million, or 41% of its total revenue, with 327,653 abortions committed.  At a conservative estimate of $451 for the average abortion, that makes about $150 million in revenue directly from ripping children apart.

Planned Parenthood performed 327K abortions in fiscal 2014: 'We've come a long way'.  Planned Parenthood's fiscal 2014 report puts the number of abortions the organization performed at 327,653.  "We've come a long way since Margaret Sanger was jailed in 1916 for opening America's very first birth control clinic," the report states before thanking the organization's advocates for their support.

Planned Parenthood: We Aborted 327,653 in FY2014.  Planned Parenthood clinics did 327,653 abortions in its fiscal year 2014 (which ran from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014), according to Planned Parenthood Federation of America's newly released annual report.  That works out to an average of 37 abortions per hour or nearly 1 every 90 seconds.

Chevron Donates $26,000 to Planned Parenthood, Blocks Shareholder Resolution to Complain.  One of the world's largest oil companies has not only donated tens of thousands of dollars to one of the world's biggest abortion companies, but it blocked a shareholder resolution complaining about it.  Tom Strobhar, Chairman of Life Decision International, which monitors companies that donate to Planned Parenthood, said the corporation blocked a resolution by a teacher from Chicago complaining about the donation.

Planned Parenthood's Pastoral Letter: God's fine with abortion.  Wanting to expand the abortion industry into the faith community, Planned Parenthood has come up with a letter to expectant mothers, assuring them that God is fine with abortion.

Democrats Must Accept That This Year's 'War On Women' Was A Disaster.  [Scroll down]  Elizabeth Plank, a senior editor at Mic, wrote an unintentionally hilarious and easily mocked piece "Wendy Davis Lost, But Here's Why She Really Won."  And yet that's exactly what Planned Parenthood tried to say to convince its allies in the media.  Check out these hilarious tweets.  Remember, when abortion activists use the phrase "women's health," they're referring to abortion of children in the womb and/or birth control policies that don't include over-the-counter availability: [...]

Planned Parenthood Touts Election Ground Game.  As America prepares for its final day of voting on Tuesday's Election Day, abortion mill Planned Parenthood says it has upped its get-out-the-vote game and is ready for a Democrat victory.  Two of the abortion groups' get-out-the-vote operations, Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes, are all-in for some of the nation's most vulnerable Democrats such as North Carolina's Kay Hagan.

Ohio Town Covered In Planned Parenthood Banners.  While small towns and cities throughout the country are gearing up for Halloween, one city in Ohio has a different kind of municipal decor — Planned Parenthood banners.  One reader sent The Daily Caller these photos of Planned Parenthood banners attached to lampposts throughout the town of Wooster in northeastern Ohio.

Planned Parenthood Suggests Minor Should "Horse Whip" Herself.  "I would say anything within the sexual world is normal as long as it's consensual."  This is the advice of a Planned Parenthood employee. In the fourth shocking video from the pro-life group Live Action's under cover investigation, "SexEd: Planned Parenthood's Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids," another clinic is exposed promoting bondage and submission, sadism and masochism.  Here's just a taste of the advice an employee at the Minneapolis-St. Paul facility gave to an under cover minor regarding her sexual adventures with her boyfriend: [...]

Colorado Atty. General to Investigate Planned Parenthood Videos Coaching Young Girls in BDSM.  The attorney general of Colorado says he will have his staff review the Live Action investigative video of a Denver Planned Parenthood employee coaching a young woman, believed to be only 15-years old, in the practice of high-risk sexual activities, including bondage/discipline and sado-masochistic sex (BDSM).

Ice Cream Shop Honors Planned Parenthood by Creating New Flavor, Donating Portion of Proceeds.  An Oregon ice cream shop named "What's the Scoop?" decided to help Planned Parenthood raise money with an exclusive "Rose City Revolution" flavor:  a blend of Oregon-grown organic rose petals, local honey, and Madagascar, Tahitian, Mexican and Indonesian vanillas.  Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon announced that the ice cream shop would be creating the special flavor, and donating 10% of sales, on its Facebook page.  After a Lifenews blog took note of Planned Parenthood's advertisement, What's the Scoop? began to receive an unexpected backlash.

Planned Parenthood Schools Underage Girls In Violent Sex.  Planned Parenthood staffers are using taxpayer money to instruct underage girls in dangerous and violent sex practices — including whipping, bondage and choking, according to a new video released by the anti-abortion group Live Action Tuesday [7/15/2014].  The uncensored footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows staffers telling investigators posing as underage girls to experiment with violent sex play in response to generic questions about sex.

What A Planned Parenthood Clinic Is Being Sued For Is A Sickening Show Of Its Priorities.  In Denver, Colorado, a local Planned Parenthood clinic is being sued by a mother who is alleging that they refused to report the suspected sexual abuse of her daughter by her stepfather, Timothy David Smith.  Cary Smith is alleging that Planned Parenthood performed an abortion on her then 13-year-old daughter, R.Z., who was brought there by Timothy, who was also the unborn baby's father, and that Planned Parenthood failed to report clear signs of possible sexual abuse and returned her home with her rapist.

Planned Parenthood Hosts "Condom Crafting".  The Planned Parenthood Vandalia abortion feeder clinic in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN recently had "cause for celebration."  That's because a new commuter rail line stop just opened near the clinic, giving clients more convenient access to it.  The organization's "can't miss event" hosted activities that were "friendly for kids and fun for grown-ups" to celebrate the new line. [...] "Friendly for kids?"  I don't think so.  Oh, and don't forget.  Planned Parenthood still receives over $500 million in funding from taxpayers like you.

Probe finds Planned Parenthood pushing teens to try sadism, domination, asphyxiation.  A new video probe by the group Live Action, known for exposing shocking abortion clinic techniques, reveals some Planned Parenthood counselors and associates pushing curious teens to engage in domination, sadism and even asphyxiation.  "If it's consensual, it's OK," said an unidentified Planned Parenthood counselor on a video trailer of a longer version due out Wednesday.

Planned Parenthood's Full-Spectrum Assault On Women.  Since its inception in 1916 as the nation's first birth control clinic, Planned Parenthood has said it is fighting for the rights of women.  That claim continues today, with Planned Parenthood fighting against pro-life regulations in numerous states because, they say, women are helped by abortion.  From a Catholic perspective it is clear that Planned Parenthood's pro-women rhetoric is a farce.  Its support for abortion and contraception alone should garner opposition from any Catholic worthy of the title.  Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood's agenda has worked its way into American culture in such a way that Catholic arguments don't garner the sympathy of the American public at large.

Planned Parenthood counselor withheld info on rape, police report reveals.  A Planned Parenthood counselor in Arizona intentionally miscoded a sexual assault as a consensual encounter to avoid the "hassle" of reporting it to authorities, months before other victims came forward to stop an alleged 18-year-old serial sex predator, a police report reveals.

Planned Parenthood Covers Up Rape... Again.  Planned Parenthood, the abortion giant receiving nearly $500 million of your tax dollars every year, has a history of covering up rape, particularly rape of minors.  This habitual behavior has been well documented and exposed in eight clinics around the country by Live Action through a series of video investigations.  Now, another Planned Parenthood is being accused of covering up rape, this time in Arizona.

Planned Parenthood, Oregon Help Host 'Adolescent Sexuality Conference'.  What do you get when the state of Oregon, Planned Parenthood, and pharmaceutical companies that produce contraceptives get in bed together?  The Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC).  Marketed under the pretense of trying to prevent youth pregnancy and STD transmission, the conference, which took place earlier this week, is actually a platform for promoting a disturbing sexual agenda that has little to do with either.  On the contrary, the dangerous practices urged onto Oregon youth this week by ASC workshops were basically infomercials glamorizing the habits that lead to teen pregnancy and STD transmission and then using semantics to re-package liberal messages about abortion and sexual identity.

Ruling: Kansas Can Strip Planned Parenthood Funds.  A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Kansas can strip two Planned Parenthood clinics of federal family planning money while the organization moves forward with its legal challenge of a state law it says is retaliation for its advocacy of abortion rights.

[Senator] Pelosi [is] Getting [an] Award Named for [a] Woman Who Said [it is] 'Most Merciful' to Kill [an] 'Infant'.  Planned Parenthood on Thursday will give House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) its Margaret Sanger Award, named for a woman who advocated eugenics and who wrote that large families would be doing what was "most merciful" if they killed one of their infants.  "The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it," wrote Sanger.  Planned Parenthood is giving Pelosi, a Catholic, its Margaret Sanger Award because of her "leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career."

The Editor says...
By now, Margaret Sanger's errors have been made abundantly clear to her.

Why Did Nancy Pelosi Accept an Award Named After Sanger?  Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi [...] has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger.  And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating "undesirables."

Kansas can pull Planned Parenthood funding: appeals court.  A federal appeals court panel on Tuesday [3/25/2014] upheld a 2011 Kansas law that would stop federal family planning money the state receives from flowing to two Planned Parenthood clinics.

Planned Parenthood attempts to unseat lawmaker whose cousin was killed by Gosnell procedure.  The political arm of Pennsylvania's Planned Parenthood has endorsed the political opponent of Democratic State Rep. Margo Davidson, the cousin of a woman who died at the hands of Kermit Gosnell.

Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood Award Honoring Eugenicist.  Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award.  The award is the group's "highest honor" and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics.  Planned Parenthood is the nation's leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report.  Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA's annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27.

Planned Parenthood announces 500-plus events to promote Obamacare.  As the March 31 Obamacare sign-up deadline nears, Planned Parenthood is going to bat for the White House, hosting more than 500 events in 18 cities to get Americans into the health insurance system.  In eight states, officials from the women's health and abortion provider will go to grocery stories and even indoor soccer fields to enroll people.  It also plans to dispatch 500 canvassers to knock on 20,000 doors.

Planned Parenthood funds S&M Web video.  A video funded by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England discussing bondage and sadomasochism is coming under fire for its subject matter.  "They're offering information on what is really a violent act and making it acceptable to young people," said Bryan McCormack, executive director of Cornerstone Policy Research & Cornerstone Action, which promotes strong families and limited government.  Planned Parenthood said it is using private donations — not government funds — to pay for a series of sexual education videos, including one titled "Getting Kinky — BDSM 101."

Breeders: How Gay Men Destroyed the Left.  Surrogacy is the use of a contract, by which a woman agrees to carry a gestating child in her womb for another party (usually an infertile heterosexual couple or a gay male couple), and also agrees to abandon the child to the couple who has engaged her services. [...] Planned Parenthood does not seem eager to oppose surrogacy as exploitation of women, largely because it is career-oriented "liberated" women who often need to turn to surrogacy contracts, having aborted too many times in their twenties and then postponed childbearing to focus on their professional ascendancy.

Planned Parenthood plots major spending spree for 2014 midterm elections.  Anti-abortion lawmakers, beware. Planned Parenthood's political operations are planning their largest-ever campaign blitz for this year's midterm and gubernatorial elections, poised to pour millions into key races that could determine who controls Congress.  The group's political arm has in the past bought up gobs of campaign-season airtime to attack social conservatives as "extreme."  Their track record is mixed, but the abortion provider played at least some role in the defeat last year of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia.

Planned Parenthood President: When Life Begins Not 'Really Relevant' in Abortion Debate.  "It is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation," Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood told Fusion's Jorge Ramos on Thursday.  "I don't know if it's really relevant to the conversation."  When pressed, Richards said that in her view life began for her three children when she delivered them.

If they are not alive, how do unborn babies squirm and kick, and how do they grow?

Planned Parenthood Affiliate Produces Video Promoting Bondage and Sadomasochism to Teens.  Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) — which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012 — has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes "rules" to follow when engaging in these activities.  "People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused — not true, it's a total myth," the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.

Wendy Davis gets big donations from abortion rights backers.  Democrat Wendy Davis collected $100,000 in the last month from Austin Planned Parenthood board member Aimee Boone and $100,000 from EMILY's List, a political committee that supports Democratic women who back abortion rights.  Other big donors during the most recent reporting period included investor Rani Clasquin of Austin, $50,000; League City trial lawyer Ronald Krist, $50,000; and eight contributions of $25,000, including from Cecilia Boone and Suzanne Bartolucci.  In addition, her most recent report shows that Planned Parenthood's political committee spent $20,000 to conduct a poll on Davis' behalf and $9,000 for Web design and staff time.

Former Planned Parenthood worker: "Money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work".  Marianne Anderson should know. She worked at the Indianapolis franchise of the nation's biggest provider in the abortion industry, until Abby Johnson helped her to leave her job and turn her life around. In an interview for The Criterion, the nurse describes some of the horrors she witnessed at the clinic.

Planned Parenthood Pays $2 Million for Wrongful Death, Press Ignores.  Late last week came the news that Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation have agreed to pay $2 million in a wrongful death settlement to the surviving young son of a woman who died after an abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood in 2012.  This is huge news, no?  Were this a settlement to a family whose loved one died because a hospital refused her an abortion, it would be broadcast everywhere.

Priests for Life African American leader blasts Nancy Pelosi for pro-choice stance.  Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, based in New Dorp, blasted pro-choice House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is slated to receive the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood.  Ironically, the first recipient of the award, named after a founder of Planned Parenthood, was none other than Dr. King's uncle, the civil rights leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Skid Roe.  "The abortion rate in the United States dropped to its lowest point since the Supreme Court legalized the procedure in all 50 states, according to a study suggesting that new, long-acting contraceptive methods are having a significant impact in reducing unwanted pregnancies," the Washington Post reports, leaping to conclusions right in the lead paragraph.  The impulse behind that leap is understandable. Journalists are attracted to cause-and-effect explanations because they make storytelling easier, and in this case the causal explanation bolsters the cause of the group doing the study:  the Alan Guttmacher Institute, research arm of Planned Parenthood.

Neighbors Say Planned Parenthood's Billboard Goes Too Far.  A Planned Parenthood billboard has only been up a week in one South Memphis neighborhood, but some people there already want it to come down.  They say the billboard, which includes the message "Getting It On Is Free" and a picture of a condom, is too graphic.

Planned Parenthood Got $540.6 Million in Government Grants in FY 2013.  Planned Parenthood's net revenue increased 5% to total of $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue — $540.6 million — was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants.  In the same report, Planned Parenthood said that in the year that ended on Sept. 30, 2012 it did 327,166 abortions.

Michelle's abortion-boosting 50th.  Days before Michelle Obama's White House birthday celebrations this year, it was revealed that Planned Parenthood got $540.6 million in government grants in 2013 from her husband's administration.  "Planned Parenthood's net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.2 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue — $540.6 million — was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants."  (CNSNews.com, Jan. 14, 2014).

Komen Sees Drop in Contributions After Planned Parenthood Controversy.  Susan G. Komen for the Cure had a 22 percent drop in contributions in 2013, following its decision (and subsequent reversal) to stop giving grants to Planned Parenthood, the Associated Press reports.

Planned Parenthood Pens 'Twelve Days of Contraception' Christmas Carol.  Staff members of the Arizona affiliate of Planned Parenthood are celebrating the season by changing the lyrics of the traditional Christmas carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," to accommodate the abortion industry.

Planned Parenthood received nearly $1.5 million a day in government funding.  Planned Parenthood's 2012-2013 annual report is out, and a pro-life group has already found that the pro-abortion group received nearly $1.5 million a day in government funding over the year.

School joins Planned Parenthood to destroy award-winning teacher.  Bill Diss is an experienced, highly qualified and popular computer science teacher.  On November 14, the Portland school district and Planned Parenthood will try to have him declared unfit to teach.  Diss is the only teacher in Oregon to earn the distinction of being credentialed to teach computer science for college credit at the high school level.  Diss is a highly qualified high school educator who has been teaching for more than a decade at a desperate public school that almost closed in 2010 — a school that serves a population which is 75 percent minority.

Planned Parenthood wants preschoolers to know mechanics of sexual intercourse.  Planned Parenthood Federation of America has just announced a new insidious Internet presence referred to as "mobile interactive tools to help teens make healthy decisions."  STOPP's national director, Rita Diller, joined ALL's Jim Sedlak on his Radio Maria "Armed for Battle" broadcast November 1 to warn about what lurks within the many webpages of this new "tool" for indoctrinating both children and parents.  "By 'mobile interactive tools,' Planned Parenthood means it is on its website so that kids can access this stuff from their smart phones or their computers when their parents aren't looking," Diller said.

Planned Parenthood asks high court's help in Texas.  Planned Parenthood asked the Supreme Court Monday [11/4/2013] to place Texas' new abortion restrictions on hold.

Planned Parenthood takes Texas abortion laws to court.  The Texas omnibus abortion law that state Senator Wendy Davis tried to block with a 13-hour filibuster is headed to court.  A trio of women's and civil liberties groups — Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the ACLU of Texas — filed a federal lawsuit Friday against some provisions of the law, including restrictions on medication abortion and the regulations openly intended to shut down many of Texas's abortion clinics.  They were joined by more than a dozen Texas women's health providers.

Planned Parenthood Will Have Access to SS#, Tax, Medical Information.  If you thought that it was frightening enough that the federal government was spying on you and had access to your personal information, get ready:  Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.

Planned Parenthood settles in Lufkin whistleblower case.  In a lawsuit which alleges workers at a Lufkin Planned Parenthood clinic frauded Medicaid for millions of dollars over a six year-period, the company has agreed to pay $4.3 million to the government as part of a settlement.  Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast will also pay a whistleblower $1,247,000.

DC Obamacare exchange awards $375k grant to Planned Parenthood.  Washington, D.C.'s health insurance exchange has awarded a $375,000 grant to abortion provider Planned Parenthood to help enroll participants in Obamacare, the exchange announced on Tuesday [8/13/2013].

GAO opens investigation into Planned Parenthood's use of taxpayer money.  The non-partisan Government Accountability Office confirmed Thursday [8/8/2013] it is launching an investigation into how the country's largest abortion provider spent millions of taxpayer dollars.  Planned Parenthood received more than a half billion dollars in federal funding last year.  The GAO's investigation is in response to a request made by more than 50 members of Congress in February who asked for a detailed report on how money is being used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers across the country.  Specifically, lawmakers want to know what procedures and services they provided and the number of people who were served and how much it cost.

Planned Parenthood to shut down three Texas clinics.  On the same day Gov. Rick Perry signed into law some of the most stringent abortion restrictions in the country, Planned Parenthood announced it would close three clinics in southeast Texas.  Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast announced the facilities, located in Bryan, Huntsville and Lufkin, will be closing at the end of August.  Each of them provided health and family planning services including cancer screenings and pregnancy, HIV and STD testing.  Only the facility in Bryan performed abortions.

Planned Parenthood Forced to Cancel Texas Bus Tour Stop, Lack of Enthusiasm.  So today's the big day, the culmination of recent pro-life efforts in Texas to ban abortions after 20 weeks and enact stricter abortion industry regulations. [...] While abortion proponents may claim Gov. Rick Perry's call for a special session was a "sneak attack," they knew it was coming — months in advance, and planned the "seemingly spontaneous" crowd.  It also appears the other side had to hire "free agent activists" on social media to stir the lackluster pro-abortion pot.

Planned Parenthood Admits that It Uses Taxpayer Money to Fund Abortions.  The abortion debate in Texas has been clarifying.  On one side we've seen people behave peacefully and respectfully, abide by the laws and the rules and sing hymns like "Amazing Grace."  On the other side, we've seen threats, mob tactics and "Hail Satan!" [...] We've also seen Planned Parenthood lie through its teeth, and a couple of members of the the Texas media just called them out on it.

Cecile Richards Can't Explain Difference Between Gosnell Killings and Elective Late-Term Abortions.  Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards held a small rally outside the U.S. Capitol Thursday [7/11/2013] joined by Minnesota senator Al Franken, Connecticut congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, and a crowd of 200 Planned Parenthood activists.  Richards warned that new state and federal bills — including measures establishing late-term abortion limits — pose threats to women's rights.

Planned Parenthood promoting Obamacare.  Planned Parenthood is diving into a new area of education, not without its own controversy:  Obamacare.  The group's more than 750 health centers across the country will be promoting the health law and helping women find out about new coverage options for themselves and their families before — and after — enrollment begins Oct. 1.  They're creating everything from refrigerator magnets to online apps that help people enroll in a health plan.  Some affiliates will be applying to become official government-funded "navigators" to give people more hands-on help through the signup process.

Planned Parenthood Tells Undercover Caller 'Probably Won't' Report Statutory Rape.  Pro-life organization Project Defending Life has released a new video exposé featuring an undercover telephone call placed by a young woman to Planned Parenthood of New Mexico in Albuquerque.

Obamacare demands insurers cover Planned Parenthood clinics.  Most of Planned Parenthood's 750 health and abortion clinics around the nation will be covered under Obamacare, imposing a new demand on insurers who want to participate in the health care exchanges that will provide insurance coverage to millions of Americans.  While insurers currently cover doctors and health facilities in their networks, Obamacare demands that they also cover at least 20 percent of "essential community providers" in their coverage area, including Planned Parenthood, AIDS clinics, pain management centers and even alternative medicine providers.

Planned Parenthood Wants Taxpayers to Fund Illegal Immigrants' Abortions.  In a statement published on May 22nd, Planned Parenthood criticized the adoption of a House amendment that would deny taxpayer funding for the abortions of illegal immigrants.

Black Conservative Attacks Abortion, Dems Faint Dead Away.  Journalists and Democrats have designated a new Republican scandal:  Bishop Earl W. Jackson "compared" Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan.  On May 18, Jackson became the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia in this November's 2013 elections.  An important detail in this drama is that Bishop Jackson is African-American.  Much more alarming, Jackson has been leading a hard-hitting campaign to call on Blacks to leave the Democrat Party.

Man Forces Pre-Teen Rape Victim to Abort at Planned Parenthood.  A Washington state man who impregnated a 12 year-old girl forced her to have an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in order to cover up his sexual assault on the girl.

IRS Told Pro-Life Group Not to Picket Planned Parenthood.  The Internal Revenue Service allegedly told an Iowa pro-life group they had to sign documents promising not to protest or picket Planned Parenthood and they told a Texas pro-life organization they had to promote abortion, according to documents obtained by Fox News.  "The IRS was concerned about advocacy," said Sally Wagenmaker, special counsel to the Thomas More Society.  "The (agent) said picketing and protesting is not allowed."  She said the IRS's role "should only be to determine whether organizations fit the section 501(c)(3) test for 'charitable, religious, or educational' qualification, not to inquire about the content of prayers, protests, and petitions."

More about the use of the IRS as a weapon.

Planned Parenthood Targets Black Women.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, blacks accounted for 35.4 percent of abortions performed in 2009, despite representing, according to the 2010 census, just 13.6 percent of the US population.  Let's not be deluded that this is an accident.

Obama Is Ducking the Gosnell Abortion Controversy.  Up in Pennsylvania, abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial, accused of having killed a handful of babies who survived his procedures.  And Planned Parenthood is in the thick of it all.

Obama Avoids [the] Word 'Abortion' in [his] Speech Defending Planned Parenthood.  President Obama gave a speech slamming critics for trying to turn Planned Parenthood "into a punching bag" while notably avoiding the word "abortion" in the entire address.  "The fact is, after decades of progress, there's still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century.  And they've been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women's health," Obama said.

Obama 12-Minute Speech to Planned Parenthood [was] Time for 7.6 Abortions at Planned Parenthood .  President Barack Obama praised the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for saving lives and helping women and families in a 12-minute, 3-second speech on Friday, which was enough time for 7.6 abortions to take place at Planned Parenthood clinics, based upon the abortion data in their latest annual report.

The Editor says...
The three items immediately above were also posted in the subsection about Mr. Obama's speech at Planned Parenthood on 4/26/2013.

Planned Parenthood Kept Silent About Gosnell Butchery.  Who outside of Kermit Gosnell's abortion clinic knew about the massacre of the innocents but didn't say a word to the authorities about it?  Planned Parenthood, that's who.  This week, Planned Parenthood Southeast Pennsylvania president and CEO Dayle Steinberg, speaking at a fundraiser, no less, admitted that she knew what was going on at Gosnell's butcher shop.  She and her organization did not report it to state health officials or anyone else who could have stepped in.

'Pro-Choice' Only Goes so Far.  [Scroll down]  Planned Parenthood, too, is yet another progressive outlet that waxes on about the virtues of "choice," but their commitment to choice magically disappears when it's convenient to do so.  After the Department of Health and Human Services decided to force employers to provide birth control to their employees regardless of religious objections, Planned Parenthood cheered:  "This policy makes it clear that your boss does not get to decide whether you can have birth control."  So a religious employer's beliefs and decisions, it seems, are second-rate when it comes to things Planned Parenthood likes.

Delaware Planned Parenthood halts abortions while under investigation.  Abortions have been suspended at a Delaware Planned Parenthood, after several 911 calls made from within the clinic prompted a new investigation by Health and Human Services.  Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich and Joyce Vasikonis, who both quit their jobs as nurses at the facility, spoke to Action News about the unsafe and unsanitary conditions they experienced while working in the facility.

Planned Parenthood: This Gosnell case is "appalling".  Proof positive that we've reached a new phase of Gosnell damage control.  Plan A:  Ignore, ignore, ignore.  Plan B:  If Plan A becomes impossible, use Gosnell as some sort of exception that proves the rule about why, counterintuitively, America needs easier access to abortion.

Delaware abortion clinic facing charges of unsafe and unsanitary conditions.  A local abortion clinic is under fire, facing allegations of unsafe and unsanitary conditions.  A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what's happening behind the closed doors.

Another abortion clinic horror story: Planned Parenthood of Delaware.  It doesn't emit the stench of delirious, inhuman evil that surrounds abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his henchpersons, but conditions were quite fearsome at Planned Parenthood of Delaware, where filthy conditions put patients at risk of contracting hepatitis, or even AIDs, according to former nurses who talked with Philadelphia ABC News affiliate WPVI.

Planned Parenthood's defense of infanticide.  When Rep. Todd Akin made his outrageous comments about "legitimate rape" it was front page news — and rightly so.  But when a representative of Planned Parenthood is caught on camera defending infanticide, it merits barely a mention in the mainstream media.

Johns Hopkins's and Planned Parenthood's troubling extremism.  Recently in Florida, Alisa LaPolt Snow, representing Florida Planned Parenthood organizations, testified against a bill that would require abortionists to provide medical care to babies who survive attempted abortions.  Snow was asked:  "If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?"  Snow replied:  "We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family and the physician."

Planned Parenthood Rep Gives Chilling Testimony on "Post-Birth" Abortion.  Some legislators were shocked at what appeared to be an admission that Planned Parenthood is okay with allowing babies born alive during an abortion to be deprived of life-saving medical care.  Fox News reported that one of the lawmakers tried to pin Snow down on the abortion giant's position regarding a baby born alive while an abortionist was attempting to end his or her life.  "We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician," Snow reiterated from her talking points — making it appear that Planned Parenthood's position is that an abortionist hasn't completed his mission until a baby dies, inside or outside the womb.

HHS Gives Planned Parenthood Orlando $2.4 Million to Fund Sex Ed for Teens.  Health and Human Services' Office of Adolescence Health is giving Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando $2,388,950 in grant funding for its "Teens Rise!" project.

Lawmakers ask if taxes fund abortion; Planned Parenthood targeted in inquiry.  A group of 72 lawmakers have revived an effort to ask the government's watchdog agency to scrutinize taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood and five other organizations who provide family-planning services.

Sandra Fluke joins Planned Parenthood to push Obamacare birth control.  Sandra Fluke, President Obama's Democratic National Convention spokeswoman for Obamacare-supplied birth control, has joined with Planned Parenthood to urge Americans to speak out in support of no co-pay birth control.

Did someone mention Sandra Fluke?

Rick Perry's best endorsement yet:
Gloria Steinem calls Texas Gov. Rick Perry 'dictatorial, unacceptable American'.  When the state's longest-serving governor and former GOP presidential candidate signed off on plans to shrink funding for family planning — and revamped the women's healthcare program, excluding Planned Parenthood from participating — his place in history became clear, she said.  "He personally will go down in history as an authoritarian — a dictatorial, unacceptable American," Steinem, 78, told the Star-Telegram on Friday [2/1/2013] before speaking to a crowd of more than 800 during the annual Planned Parenthood luncheon at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel downtown.

Aborting 'Pro-Choice,' Promoting 'Nuance'.  As the United States — with over a million abortions a year, one of the highest abortion rates among Western industrialized nations — prepares to recognize the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, abortion activists are quietly launching a new public relations strategy.  Planned Parenthood, after admitting to selected reporters that the "pro-choice" label has lost its appeal, is moving to more "nuanced" language that conveys the "complicated" nature of abortion.  The need for an abortion, claims Planned Parenthood, is "situational" and "depends on an individual's circumstances."

Planned Parenthood cranks up abortion mills.  In 2011, government subsidies to Planned Parenthood reached an all-time high, with the abortion provider receiving a whopping $542 million in taxpayer funding — all while ending a record number of lives — 333,964.  This brings Planned Parenthood's death toll to nearly 1 million during the last three years.  This means that nearly 1 million women have also been wounded by the pain of abortion, calling into question Planned Parenthood's level of concern for the health and well-being of vulnerable women and girls.

Congresswoman Reintroduces Bill To Ban Federal Funds From Abortion Providers, Including Planned Parenthood.  Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, by announcing at a press conference her reintroduction of legislation to ban all abortion providers from receiving any federal funds, including Planned Parenthood.  "Over the last 40 years, more than 55 million babies have been aborted," Black said on Tuesday [1/22/2013] on Capitol Hill at the conference focused on Roe v. Wade.

Judge blocks Planned Parenthood from Texas program.  A Texas judge refused to allow Planned Parenthood to temporarily rejoin a health program for low-income women on Friday [1/11/2013], saying the organization would unlikely win its court fight to get around a new law that disqualifies health clinics with any affiliation to abortion providers.

Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in government grants and reimbursements from 2011 to 2012.  Planned Parenthood's most recent annual report for 2011-2012, released Monday [1/7/2013], reveals that the abortion and women's health provider received $542.4 million from taxpayers in government grants and reimbursements — constituting 45 percent of the organization's revenue.  Abortions constituted 3 percent of the services Planned Parenthood provided from October 2010 to September 2011.

Planned Parenthood reports record year for abortions.  In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 — a record year for the organization.  According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn offers bill to defund Planned Parenthood.  "As a woman, I believe America deserves better than abortion," Blackburn said in a statement on her bill.  "America shouldn't celebrate abortion and our taxpayers shouldn't subsidize abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who profit from the destruction of human life with taxpayer money.  It's fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible."

Judge allows ban on funds to Planned Parenthood.  A Texas judge has ruled that the state may cut off funding to Planned Parenthood's family planning programs for poor women.

Texas health program can exclude Planned Parenthood: judge.  Texas won a court victory on Monday in its effort to stop state funds under a health program for low-income women from going to clinics affiliated with Planned Parenthood, a group that provides abortions at some of its facilities.

Texas Judge Rules State Can De-Fund Planned Parenthood.  A Texas state judge has delivered a ruling in response to the second legal challenge Planned Parenthood has brought against the state for removing the abortion business from its taxpayer-funded women's health program.  The judge refused today [12/31/2012] to grant a temporary restraining order allowing Planned Parenthood to rejoin the Texas Women's Health Program in time for the January launch of it.

Planned Parenthood think tank inflates abortion numbers.  How many abortions, legal and illegal, are performed annually, nationally and worldwide?  The answer depends upon whom you ask and whether the data come from the United States or from developing nations.  More important, it depends on the assumptions, methodology and honesty of those compiling the numbers.  Recent research calls into question data that heretofore had been considered authoritative.

Planned Parenthood Did One Abortion Every 95 Seconds — As Many in One Year as Live In Cincinnati.  Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009, according to a fact sheet the group published last month.  That is about as many as the 333,012 people who lived in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  The 332,278 abortions Planned Parenthood performed over the 365 days of 2009 equals an average of 910 lives terminated per day — or about 38 per hour, or one every 95 seconds.

Rep. Schwartz: 'Respect for Life' Means 'Different Things to Different People'.  Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion-provider in the nation.  According to its own fact sheets, Planned Parenthood performed 985,731 abortions between 2008 and 2010 — 329,445 in 2010 alone.  Planned Parenthood also receives taxpayer money every year and got $487.4 million in 2009-2010.  A Congressional Research Service report published on Aug. 28 said that the federal government gives Planned Parenthood about $66 million per year in Title X "family planning" grants.  The law prohibits recipients from using Title X money for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.  However, Planned Parenthood and other organizations that receive federal subsidies under Title X can take the federal money and do abortions at the same time as long use other dollars — not the dollars they got from the federal government — to pay for an actual abortion.

Intl Planned Parenthood Marks 60 Years, Pushes Abortion in Africa.  At the end of this week, International Planned Parenthood Federation is celebrating its 60th anniversary in South Africa, where the abortion giant and billionaire Melinda Gates have their sights set on targeting women and girls with injectable contraceptives that double the rate of contracting HIV.  In April, Gates launched her 10-year plan to lend her voice (and millions of dollars) to ostensibly eliminate the controversy that surrounds contraception.

Planned Parenthood Gets Obamacare Funds to Push Sex on 9th Graders.  Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia has received government funding that enables it to expand its systematic sexualization and degradation of 9th graders in the Newport News public schools with "risk reduction" sex education.  The money comes from the $75 million pool set aside as a part of Obamacare to teach the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP).  The PREP money is setting students up for disaster as it enables Planned Parenthood and other organizations access to the most vulnerable youth across the nation.

Planned Parenthood takes credit for Obama reelection.  Planned Parenthood, whose federal funding was threatened by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is taking credit for President Obama's reelection by keeping independent women scared long enough about Romney's agenda for Obama to win them over.

Women voted for birth control.  Planned Parenthood is patting itself on the back over President Obama's victory earlier this month.  According to Dawn Laguens, the abortion provider's executive vice president, women were scared away from Mitt Romney with the threat that he would take away their birth control.  Other, seemingly more important issues, such as the fragile state of the economy, record joblessness among women and the foreign-policy debacle in Benghazi, Libya, took a back seat for the 56 percent of female voters who opted for Mr. Obama, intent on securing their "reproductive rights" against a purported Republican onslaught.

Planned Parenthood Head Urges GOP to Dump Pro-Life Base.  Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has advice for Republicans after their big defeat on Election Day — to abandon their pro-life base.  Following an election campaign in which the taxpayer-funded organization spent $15 million tearing down Republican candidates who vowed to cut off its federal funding, Richards now says she is reaching out to pro-choice Republicans.

Obama on Giving Tax $$ to Planned Parenthood: 'Sometimes You've Got to Stand on Principle'.  Concerning budget negotiations with Republicans, President Barack Obama made clear in a campaign speech on Monday [11/5/2012] in Madison, Wisc., that he would not compromise on federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.  Obama identified preserving taxpayer subsidies for the nation's largest abortion provider among other top priorities in a speech given one day before the presidential election.

Whistleblower Cases Allege Planned Parenthood Intentionally Engaged in Improper Billing Practices.  Former Planned Parenthood employees allege improper and illegal corporate policies were implemented by Planned Parenthood to increase profits, to the detriment of both the taxpayers and the women and families government programs seek to serve.  In the most recently unsealed suit, Thayer v. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, Sue Thayer, former manager for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland (PPH), alleges that PPH filed nearly one-half million false claims with Medicaid.  According to Ms. Thayer's complaint, PPH fraudulently received and retained nearly $28 million in taxpayer funding through abusive billing practices.

Why Planned Parenthood Won't Provide Mammograms.  Why doesn't Planned Parenthood just offer mammograms?  Doing so would do real good while saving their public defenders from credibility diminishing lies.  The answer may lie in what economists call the "contribution margin."  The contribution margin of each procedure is the marginal profit per unit of sale and thus the amount each procedure contributes to the coverage of fixed costs (such as executive compensation) and to profits.  The problem for Planned Parenthood — which thinks and acts much more like a business than most people realize — is that mammograms are much less profitable than the relatively lucrative procedure of abortion.

Planned Parenthood battles Texas in court over funding.  Planned Parenthood and Texas officials are headed back to court in early November, the latest round of legal wrangling in a fight over funding.  On Friday [10/26/2012], a Texas district court judge in Austin issued a temporary restraining order barring Texas officials from eliminating Planned Parenthood from the Women's Health Program if they continue to accept federal funds.

WaPo fact check gives Obama seven Pinocchios on the sequester and mammograms at Planned Parenthood.  Obama tried to dodge responsibility for the sequestration when Mitt Romney criticized him for it during the final debate, claiming that "[t]he sequester is not something that I've proposed.  It is something that Congress has proposed."  That came as news to the man who literally wrote the book on that deal, Bob Woodward.

After 96 Years, Abortion Giant Planned Parenthood Still Targeting Minorities.  Planned Parenthood marked its 96th anniversary on October 16, and Jim Sedlak of the American Life League noted that over the past 42 years the abortion giant has been responsible for the deaths of over six million pre-born babies, all the while collecting millions of dollars in federal funding.  "In 2010, Planned Parenthood did 27 percent of all the abortions in the United States," Sedlak pointed out.  "It has ended the lives of over 6,000,000 human beings in its own facilities since 1970.  And, during that same time, it collected over $6 billion in taxpayer money.

Planned Parenthood President Volunteers for Obama Re-Election.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced Friday [10/19/2012] she is taking a break from running the nation's largest abortion provider to volunteer full-time for the re-election of President Barack Obama, because, "Our daughters' and our granddaughters' future depends on it."  "I've taken a break from my day job in order to volunteer full-time to reelect President Barack Obama," Richards said in a one-minute 45-second video posted on the Obama campaign website.

Shocker: Planned Parenthood President Volunteers for Obama Campaign.  The reason Cecile Richards has to take leave from her job at the abortion mill is because if she kept working there while also volunteering for the Obama campaign she'd run the risk of people thinking Planned Parenthood is a partisan organization (pause for laughter). [...] And why not team up with Obama on a formal basis?  They've been coordinating their lies more than ever lately.

Obama: Women 'Rely' on Planned Parenthood for Mammograms; FDA: No They Don't.  During Tuesday's second presidential debate, President Barack Obama said that women "rely" on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, but, according to the Food and Drug Administration, no Planned Parenthood facility in the United States is licensed to do mammograms.

Planned Parenthood's "White Lies".  Planned Parenthood describes itself as "many things to many people."  That is true, in large part, because Planned Parenthood is in reality not what the organization presents itself to be.  For example, in the words of Planned Parenthood, abortion is "a very small part" of its operations, but simple math demonstrates that Planned Parenthood's abortion business brings in, at bare minimum, a non-trivial 99 million dollars a year.  Planned Parenthood has promoted the idea that re-directing funding away from Planned Parenthood to other providers would cause women to "lose access" to "mammograms," while no Planned Parenthood clinic is even authorized to perform mammograms.

Biden: Planned Parenthood 'Under Law Cannot Perform Any Abortion;' Planned Parenthood: We Did 985,731 In 3 Years.  Vice President Joe Biden said at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse on Friday [10/12/2012] that Planned Parenthood "under law cannot perform any abortion."  Planned Parenthood itself has published fact sheets indicating that it did 985,731 abortions in just the three years from 2008 through 2010.  These included 324,008 abortion in 2008, 332,278 abortions in 2009, and 329,445 abortions in 2010.  Biden made his remark in response to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney position that he would defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Buys $3.5M in Anti-Romney TV Ads.  It's no surprise that Planned Parenthood, its president Cecile Richards, and its loyalists are out in force to re-elect Barack Obama.  Mitt Romney has said he would cut off federal tax dollars to the group, while President Obama is one of the abortion giant's most fervent allies.  Recent disclosure reports show that Planned Parenthood's various PACs and independent expenditure organizations have already spent nearly $6 million in this election cycle to support Obama and pro-abortion champions while attacking Romney.

Planned Parenthood's Facebook Page for Teens: 'Slut' Is a Positive Word.  Penny Starr of CNSNews.com is featured on the Drudge Report for her story on Planned Parenthood's Facebook page for teenagers.  Like many on the libertine Left, the social-media instructors for America's largest abortion provider think "slut" is an inappopriate word to use for sexually active people.  After all, sexually active young people are the most reliable Planned Parenthood clients.

Planned Parenthood Prez: Without Birth Control 'Few Women Had Opportunity to Finish School'.  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday that before birth control was legalized in the United States women did not have the opportunity to finish school and did not live long past the age of 50.  "Nearly 100 years ago when Planned Parenthood was founded, birth control was illegal," Richards told the convention.  "And as a result, few women had the opportunity to finish school, and we really weren't even expected to live much past the age of 50.

Planned Parenthood's Kathleen Turner: How Would a Zygote Know of its Legal Rights?.  Kathleen Turner, actress and chairwoman of Planned Parenthood's Board of Advocates, criticized "personhood" legislation, which defines life as beginning at conception and ending at natural death, and asked how a human embryo would know it had such personhood rights.  At the National Press Club on Wednesday [9/5/2012], Turner spoke about reproductive rights and mocked the idea of a "personhood" law.  "And then we have the so-called 'personhood' bills," she said.  "Now these would give full legal rights to a zygote, at the moment sperm meets egg.  Frankly, I have always wondered, 'How do they know?'"

The Editor says...
Does a newborn baby have any legal rights?  How does it know?  Babies don't have to know the law to enjoy its protection.

Planned Parenthood's Action Fund planning revenge on Mitt Romney.  Planned Parenthood's Action Fund plans to spend more than $3 million in Ohio and Virginia against Mitt Romney in the wake of his pledge to "get rid" of the women's health advocacy group.  The group is one of several liberal-leaning women's organizations planning to spend millions of dollars in crucial election states to swing undecided female voters toward President Obama.  Joining them are NARAL Pro-Choice America and EMILY's List, two abortion-rights groups who are also planning aggressive campaigns.

Planned Parenthood President Speaks at Democratic Convention.  Shoving aside countless hours of research, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said Wednesday [9/5/2012] at the Democratic National Convention that before birth control was legalized women were unlikely to finish school and had life expectancies not much higher than the age of 50.  In her speech, she also noticeably omitted the word "abortion" while railing against pro-life Republicans such as Rep. Todd Akin (Mo.).

Planned Parenthood's magical mystery bus tour.  Birds of a feather flock together, especially when one bird is funneling hundreds of millions of dollars a year to the other.  Case in point:  Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and the Obama administration.  The administration oversaw the transfer of nearly half a billion dollars to the abortion giant last year, and now Richards has announced a Planned Parenthood bus tour in support of Obama's re-election campaign.  Since no one knows exactly what the bus tour will do, except serve as a campaign arm for the Obama administration, I guess we'll call it the "Magical Mystery Bus Tour."

Court: Texas can cut off Planned Parenthood funds.  Texas officials are vowing to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood after a federal court sided with the state in a challenge over a new law that bans clinics affiliated with abortion providers from getting money through a health program for low-income women.

Planned Parenthood goes to war against Mitt Romney.  Barack Obama may be losing most of America, but he can count on the fervent support of the extremely well-heeled abortion industry.  Its political coffers are stuffed with cash, from both the sale of services and compulsory taxpayer subsidies.  There's no way Planned Parenthood will allow taxpayers to turn off the money spigot.

Moving Forward Doesn't Mean Funding Planned Parenthood for President Obama's Daughters.  It seems that every day the effects of the culture of death on our society are more and more obvious, and more and more gruesome.  Just take the continued funding of Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars.  This ongoing controversy was highlighted recently when President Barack Obama declared yet again that he wants to continue pumping our hard-earned money into Planned Parenthood.

Woman dies after abortion at Planned Parenthood clinic.  A woman died of injuries she received during an abortion at a [Chicago] Planned Parenthood clinic Friday [7/20/2012]. [...] An autopsy done Saturday listed the woman's cause of death to be hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, as well as an intrauterine pregnancy as contributing causes, according to the medical examiner's office.  Her death was ruled an accident.

Chicago Woman's Family Lawyers Up After Abortion-Related Death.  Tonya Reaves, 24, died after hemorrhaging during cervical dilation and evacuation — a kind of second-trimester abortion -- and an intrauterine pregnancy late Friday night, Cook County medical examiners said.  Reaves was transported via ambulance from a Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at about 11:00 a.m. Friday, medical examiners said.  She was pronounced dead about 12 hours later, at 11:20 p.m.

Another Senseless, Preventable Death Lies At The Door of Planned Parenthood.  President Obama obviously supports a pro-abortion position, which most of us who have been paying attention were well of prior to this time.  The abortion industry is a very lucrative business. [...] States that have attempted to implement legislation either defunding Planned Parenthood or requiring the organization to adhere to standard practices within the health care industry have been met with retaliation from the Obama administration via threats of having all access to Medicaid funding denied to the state.

Memphis Planned Parenthood gets $395,000 federal grant.  The Memphis branch of Planned Parenthood received a federal grant that will help offset the loss of state funding last year, officials announced Thursday [7/5/2012].  A $395,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will cover a little more than half of the $748,000 in funding that was eliminated last year by lawmakers who oppose abortion.

Planned Parenthood, NARAL Welcome SCOTUS Ruling on ObamaCare.  In response to Thursday's Supreme Court ruling that the president's signature healthcare law is constitutional as a tax, the nation's abortion industry expressed pleasure at the outcome. [...] Planned Parenthood notes that as a result of ObamaCare's newly declared constitutional status, beginning August 1st, "birth control will be treated like any other preventive prescription under the Affordable Care Act, and will be available without co-pays or deductibles."

DeMint: Planned Parenthood in LA high school 'a referral service to more abortion'.  The Planned Parenthood partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District is a dangerous development, according to South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint.  Tuesday [6/5/2012], The Los Angeles Times reported that Planned Parenthood has opened a clinic in Los Angeles' Roosevelt High School to reduce the school's number of unplanned pregnancies.  During an appearance on the Laura Ingraham Show, DeMint blasted the new Planned Parenthood location.  "It's absurd," DeMint said.  "We would never allow that in South Carolina.  But California won't allow Marines to recruit in schools, but they'll allow this kind of thing.  It's dangerous because it tells children that promiscuous, dangerous sex is supported by their government and their political authorities."

Liberals Are Waging the Real War on Women.  We have known for some time that baby girls are either aborted or killed outright after birth in some Asian countries, most notably, China.  There is now growing evidence that Asian immigrants in the United States may be practicing the same sort of "gendercide."  Of course, the nation's leading provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood, which receives hundreds of millions of our federal tax dollars every year, is more than willing to abort normal, healthy fetuses — for sex selection or any other reason — no questions asked.  This was dramatically demonstrated recently by the head of the pro-life group Live Action, Lila Rose, who, a few years ago, exposed Planned Parenthood's cover-up of abortions on underage girls who had been impregnated by older men.

Barack Obama Campaign Funded by Planned Parenthood Blood Money.  Planned Parenthood supports Barack Obama, and is currently stepping up their efforts to ensure his reelection.  They are pumping money into his campaign, saying their support is in relation to the issues of "health" and "economics."  Planned Parenthood endorsed Obama's reelection earlier this week, saying Romney's positions are harmful on women's health, despite the fact that most abortions have nothing to do with a woman's health, and are performed more often as a convenience.

Planned Parenthood Participates in Gendercide, Probe Shows.  A nationwide undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood by the pro-life activist group Live Action revealed that the tax-subsidized abortion behemoth and lobbying group willingly participates in and facilitates what is known as "gendercide" -- the deliberate extermination of children due solely to their gender.  And while the sex-discrimination problem in abortions is generally associated with countries such as China and India, evidence released by the activists on May 29 further exposed the fact that it has increasingly reared its head in America, all with the help of taxpayer subsidies.

Another Video Shows Gendercide at Planned Parenthood in New York City.  Another new and chilling Live Action film shows gendercide being promoted in a New York City Planned Parenthood clinic.  A woman undercover says if she is pregnant with a baby girl, she would want to abort and instead have a boy.  The Planned Parenthood worker counsels her about how to terminate her pregnancy, late term, based on sex-selection.

Planned Parenthood Wants Your Money For Abortions on Mother's Day.  Planned Parenthood is wishing women a happy Mother's Day by asking people for donations to prevent women from becoming mothers, or in other words, is asking for abortion funding.  This Mother's Day, Planned Parenthood is pushing the idea that empowering women means giving them the option to terminate a life in the womb early instead of celebrating a woman's ability to give the precious gift of life.

Planned Parenthood targeting college students, says pro-life group.  A pro-life student group is alleging that Planned Parenthood for America targets college students for their abortion services.  Students for Life is basing the claim on a study the group conducted over the winter.  It found that of the estimated 780 Planned Parenthood facilities in the United States (at the initiation of the study in January), there are 615 Planned Parenthoods, or 79 percent, within 5 miles of a university.

RINO alert!
House Republican floats bill to protect Planned Parenthood.  One of the few Republicans in Congress who supports abortion rights introduced a bill Wednesday [5/9/2012] to stop conservative state legislatures from halting the flow of federal public health funds to Planned Parenthood.  Rep. Robert Dold (R-Ill.) defended the group and its funding at a press conference, saying they enable underprivileged women to receive "basic, preventive, and in some cases, life-saving" care.

GOP foiled as funds flow to Planned Parenthood.  Newly empowered Republicans in states across the country are pushing to kill public contracts with Planned Parenthood, only to find their efforts blocked by the Obama administration and federal courts.  In New Hampshire, the administration circumvented officials by awarding a $1 million grant directly to the nation's largest provider of abortion services after state officials blocked a grant to the organization.  Every federal district court that has ruled so far has sided with Planned Parenthood.

Arizona bans funding to Planned Parenthood in abortion fight.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on Friday [5/4/2012] signed into law a bill banning abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from receiving money through the state, her office said in a statement.  The Republican-backed Whole Woman's Health Funding Priority Act cuts off funding for family planning and health services delivered by Planned Parenthood clinics and other organizations offering abortions.

Federal judge blocks Texas from cutting off Planned Parenthood.  A federal judge on Monday [4/30/2012] stopped Texas from preventing Planned Parenthood from getting state funds through the Women's Health Program.

Appeals court gives Texas reprieve after ruling against Planned Parenthood cut-off.  The Texas attorney general has convinced a federal appeals judge to examine whether the state has a right to deny funding to Planned Parenthood.

State gets a stay from appeals court in Planned Parenthood case.  The state [of Texas  — which quickly appealed a Monday [4/30/2012] preliminary injunction allowing Planned Parenthood to continue participating, at least temporarily, in the Women's Health Program — was granted a stay by an appellate court judge.  Attorney General Greg Abbott filed an emergency motion for stay Monday night in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said Stephanie Goodman of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, and Judge Jerry E. Smith granted it.  His order said the stay is granted "pending further order of this court."

Obama administration hires former Planned Parenthood spokesman.  The Obama administration has hired Planned Parenthood's former spokesman to work in the Department of Health and Human Services' press shop — angering anti-abortion groups, who pointed to the decision as evidence of the administration's bias.  The federal health department tapped Tait Sye, former media relations director at Planned Parenthood, to be the new deputy assistant secretary for public affairs.

Eleven Thousand Reasons Why Planned Parenthood Can't Be Trusted.  For the past five years, every dawn has brought additional evidence of the fact that Planned Parenthood and its allies in the abortion industry cannot be trusted to tell the truth about the one thing they should know well — abortion.  Just over five years ago, on April 18, 2007, the Supreme Court announced its opinion in Gonzales v. Carhart, holding that the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act was constitutional.  Since then, we have lived in a world where partial-birth abortions have been illegal in the United States under federal law (and now many state laws).  Yet the most valuable part of the Gonzales opinion may not be its upholding of the PBA Ban, but the fact that it called the abortion industry's bluff.  And history has now demonstrated that Planned Parenthood and its allies were holding a joker.

Planned Parenthood president barnstorms state promoting Tester.  The leader of the group that's become a national lightning rod on abortion and birth control barnstormed Montana this week, saying the group is about health care rather than politics — but won't shy from being a political force as well.

Planned Parenthood Launches Pro-Abortion "40 Days of Prayer".  Six Rivers Planned Parenthood of Eureka, California, has launched a campaign called the 40 Days of Prayer: Supporting Women Everywhere, which lists 40 different prayers for those committing abortions:  the mothers, the escorts, the abortionists, and everyone involved except the unborn children.  The prayer event is supported by the so-called Clergy for Choice, "religious leaders who value all human life."  In truth, the purported "clergy" only value life once it reaches a certain age and actively seek to destroy the lives of defenseless preborn children.

Obama Praises Planned Parenthood In Video Message To Supporters.  "For you and for most Americans, protecting women's health is a mission that stands above politics," President Obama says in a video message to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Planned Parenthood sues Texas.  Planned Parenthood has taken their Texas-sized grievance to court.  The organization filed a lawsuit against the Texas Health and Human Services Commission in federal court this week seeking to prevent enforcement of a new rule that excludes their affiliates from participating in the state's Women's Health Program.

Planned Parenthood's 10 Most Feared Enemies in 2012.  In the last few months PPFA's named appeared in the news for many controversies ranging from Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Girl Scouts, contraception and religious freedom, federal funding, and individual state laws seeking to lower abortion numbers.  Considering Planned Parenthood makes hundreds of millions of dollars a year as the top abortion provider in America, you can bet they have an enemies list in these battles.  And [in this article] you will find their top ten most feared enemies for this big election year.

RINO alert!
GOP Sen. Hutchison defends Planned Parenthood, rips Rick Perry.  Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (Texas) on Thursday defended Planned Parenthood and criticized Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) for excluding the organization from the state's healthcare program.  "I think Planned Parenthood does mammograms, they do so much of the healthcare, the preventative healthcare, and if they're doing that, then we need to provide those services, absolutely," Hutchison said on MSNBC.

Whistleblower Lawsuit Alleges $6 Million Fraud by Planned Parenthood.  A former Planned Parenthood clinic director has filed a whistle-blower lawsuit against her former employer, Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas (now known as Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast), charging that between 2007 and 2009 the abortion provider filed fraudulent Medicaid claims totaling nearly $6 million.

Planned Parenthood accused of $6M fraud.  A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Texas knowingly sent in about $6 million in false claims to Medicaid and took steps to cover up its acts, says a federal "whistleblower" lawsuit that was unsealed Friday [3/9/2012].  Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast submitted more than 87,000 reimbursement claims for services that were "false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible," said the lawsuit filed by Abby K. Johnson on behalf of the United States and the State of Texas in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas in Houston.

Lubbock Planned Parenthood CEO arrested for indecent exposure.  The CEO and President of the Planned Parenthood Association of Lubbock has been arrested for exposing himself in public.

Answering Planned Parenthood's Grand Deception.  Although popular opinion has been turning steadily against Planned Parenthood and their allies over the course of the last 20 years, the culture of death continues to seek and proselytize new adherents in pervasive and destructive ways.  With their success, human life has been cheapened to such a degree that news stories about sex and death which our grandparents would have found heinous, don't even make us blink today.

Surprise! Planned Parenthood CEO Top Advisor on Contraception Mandate.  Guess who was a key player in pushing through the birth control mandate in ObamaCare?  Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards.  According to reports, not only did Obama listen to Richards, but took her word over the suggestions his top advisers, including Vice President Joe Biden, then Chief of Staff Bill Daley and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

FNC's Powers: Media See Planned Parenthood as 'Humanitarian' Group.  On Saturday's [2/11/2012] Fox News Watch, during a discussion of the media double standard between hitting Komen for planning to defund Planned Parenthood, while delaying attention to Catholic leaders criticizing the Obama contraception mandate, liberal FNC analyst Kirsten Powers debated fellow panel member and FNC analyst Judy Miller from the right as Powers noted the media's bias toward Planned Parenthood, while Miller defended President Obama.

Tarnished Halos.  Planned Parenthood is a particular type of institution that might be called a "halo organization."  A halo organization is an outfit that, thanks to the sanctity of its mission, its purity of motives, its rigorous ethics, and its unimpeachable standards, has attained the status of a sacred entity on this bitter earth.  It's a kind of secular church for people who don't have churches, beyond any form of criticism or doubt.  A halo organization is an archangel among institutions.  I don't have to explain to the readers of AT that halo organizations are all left-wing.  There is no record of such an outfit existing in the center, much less the regions to the right.

Komen Disgraces Its Own Cause.  The relationship between Komen and the abortion mill has always been baffling on several levels.  Komen was started to find ways to save the sick and suffering.  Planned Parenthood began as an organization based upon the Margaret Sanger lie of eugenics, which taught that weaker beings should be exterminated.  Komen exists upon the fundamental concept that all life is valuable.  Planned Parenthood exists upon the fundamental deceit that only "wanted" or "convenient" life is worthy of protection.  Komen's answer to social problems is to strive to find ways to support the living.  Planned Parenthood's answer to social problems is to increase access to killing procedures.

Planned Parenthood Executive Supports Gender Based Abortions.  Whenever Planned Parenthood is threatened with funding cuts from private organizations or Congress, the executives who work there are the liberals who defend the organization take to the streets and the media to proclaim, "They're putting women's health in jeopardy!"  It's almost as if they don't realize abortion affects unborn females in the womb, as fifty percent of abortions are of female babies.  They'll scream women's rights all day long, while they disregard the rights of an unborn child, male or female.  These are also the same liberals who claim to fight against gender discrimination in the work place, but apparently it is perfectly fine to discriminate inside the womb.

Karen Handel, former Komen Foundation exec, says Planned Parenthood is a 'gigantic bully': report.  The former Komen Foundation exec — who resigned over a funding dispute with the nation's largest abortion provider — is lashing out against Planned Parenthood, calling the organization a "gigantic bully."  In an interview with the Daily Beast, Handel contends Planned Parenthood reneged on a secret deal to keep quiet about the breast cancer charity's decision to cut off funding to the organization.

Obama and the Dictatorship of Relativism.  Alas, it's not a question of the administration being tragically "tone deaf," as one American Jesuit claimed, to specifically Catholic concerns.  Nor is the bedrock of President Obama's position, in the end, a commitment to "women's health."  Outside the ghoulish world of Planned Parenthood, pregnancy does not qualify as a disease.  A fertile womb is no threat to human life.  No, this is all about the absolutization of choice for the sake of choice.  It's also about creating a society in which any discussion of the actual ends we choose is considered unacceptable in public debates about law and morality.

Planned Parenthood's Fig Leaf.  The Komen Foundation caved under the pressure with all of the groveling its opponents could have wished for.  "We want to apologize to the American public," said the group's press release, "for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives."  So, all together now, Planned Parenthood is all about saving women's lives, and any criticism of PP is "ugly politics."  Except that observers of events over the past week may draw other conclusions.

Komen Exec Quits After Funding Flap.  A high-ranking official resigned Tuesday from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity after a dispute over whether the group should give funding to Planned Parenthood, according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press.

George Will: 'Historians will marvel' over American liberalism's defense of abortion.  On Sunday's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Washington Post columnist George Will said that last week's decision — and subsequent reversal — by the Susan G. Komen Foundation to take funding away from Planned Parenthood was strictly about abortion and less about women's health, adding that the case illustrates how far liberals are willing to take the fight to defend abortion.  "This is not about women's health.  This is about providing 300,000 abortions a year."

The Audacity of Obama's Secularism:  [Scroll down]  As the hapless executives at the Komen Foundation recently learned — after committing the thought crime of withholding private donations from abortionists — no one is free to leave Obama's Animal Farm.  Some pigs on it are more equal than others, and, remember, the secularist Napoleons can never be wrong.

Planned Parenthood's Hostages:  Faced with even the tiniest depletion in the massive river of funds Planned Parenthood receives yearly, the behemoth mobilized its enormous cultural, media, financial and political apparatus to attack the Komen Foundation in the press, on TV and through social media.  The organization's allies demonized the charity, attempting to depict the nation's most prominent anti-breast cancer organization as a bedfellow of religious extremists.  A Facebook page was set up to "Defund the Komen Foundation."  In short, Planned Parenthood took breast-cancer victims as hostages.

Liberals are the true aggressors in culture wars.  [Scroll down]  It's clearly not about the money.  Komen's $600,000 in donations amount to less than .01% of Planned Parenthood's budget (as opposed to the nearly half that comes from taxpayers).  It's about making it very clear:  Resistance is not just futile, but dangerous.  That was evident almost immediately.  Komen's website was hacked, its Wikipedia page filled with smears.  Various allegedly objective news outlets rallied to Planned Parenthood's defense as if the behemoth abortion provider was a victim of the tiny little breast cancer foundation.

Komen flap shows Planned Parenthood is beyond criticism.  Off the deep end:  that's where America's pro-abortion forces have gone.  Have you checked out their reaction to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation's decision not to provide grants to Planned Parenthood?  "Komen's attack on abortion rights," screamed a shrill editorial in the Feb. 2 edition of The Baltimore Sun.  What the headline of that one editorial shows is how completely unhinged some pro-abortionists get at the mere thought that somewhere in the nation, an unborn child might not be sucked down a tube.  Whose right to an abortion has been "attacked" by Komen's decision?

Komen Cancer Charity Reneges on Planned Parent Defunding.  Apparently, Komen's sensitivity to the federal investigation changed in the course of 72 hours, as [Nancy] Brinker explained that the organization had changed its rules to welcome Planned Parenthood back into the funding fold.  "Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation," she explained.  "We will amend the criteria to make clear that disqualifying investigations must be criminal and conclusive in nature and not political.  That is what is right and fair."  Brinker did not say what her organization would do in the event (not unlikely, argue some Planned Parenthood critics) that the Stearns investigation uncovers criminal behavior on the part of the abortion giant.

Cancel the Cookies: Grave Concerns Over Direction of Girl Scouts.  A few pro-life and pro-family groups are recommending a boycott of the cookies this year because of the Girl Scout (GSUSA) organization's partnership with Planned Parenthood, its practice of allowing sexually confused boys to join its ranks, and its reported promotion of pre-marital sex among the girls it mentors.

We're All Nonprofit Now.  Planned Parenthood is in the news this week, because when a far smaller charitable foundation, the Susan G Komen Foundation, which funds breast cancer screening and treatment for women, decided that it would no longer fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of about $600,000 a year, all hell broke loose. ... Contributors to an organization which presents itself as one working on breast cancer issues would be misled should that money be used to underscore Planned Parenthood's primary mission — abortion.  And though it remains a mystery to the media, many millions of Americans are anti-abortion and would not contribute to SGK if they knew that's where their contributions were going.

Komen has its awareness raised.  In America today, few activities are as profitable as a "nonprofit."  Planned Parenthood receives almost half a billion dollars — or about 50 percent of its revenues — in taxpayer funding.

The Left's Genocide of Minorities.  A 2010 report from the Guttmacher Institute confirmed the disproportionate minority statistics:  of all abortions, non-Hispanic black women accounted for 30%, Hispanic women 25%, and 3% members of other races, including American Indians.  All this has happened since the Civil Rights Act was passed. ... Four out of five of Planned Parenthood's clinics are located in minority neighborhoods, with blacks the primary target.  For the Hispanic community, PP's literature is translated into Spanish, and Spanish-speaking "outreach directors" have been hired to bring in Latinas.

Big Sister Is Watching You.  The truth is that Komen blundered into a political battle by supporting Planned Parenthood in the first place and was attempting to back out of it quietly.  The [New York] Times's view exemplifies feminism's gradual transformation into a totalitarian ideology.  Totalitarianism politicizes everything, so that neutrality is betrayal — in this case, neutrality on abortion is portrayed as opposition to "women's health."

Race for the Smear.  A House subcommittee is looking into whether Planned Parenthood has violated the law by spending government money on abortions.  Planned Parenthood's supporters say the probe is politically motivated.  As it is a Congressional investigation, that is a trivial truth.  We suspect, in any case, that the investigation was a pretext — that Komen, whose mission is apolitical, dumped Planned Parenthood because it wished to escape involvement with abortion politics.  After all, its ubiquitous pink ribbons and "Race for the Cure" marketing invite donations to cure cancer, not to support abortion providers.

Lessons from the Komen Foundation Fiasco.  [Scroll down]  Komen did nothing wrong, and exercised its prerogative in determining the criteria it uses for administering grants.  It is perfectly free to do that, and has good reason to disassociate itself from controversial political organizations like Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is ruthless, intelligent and driven.  The half million dollars it would have lost from the Komen grants weren't really the point of its blistering assault on the foundation.  Preserving its power and its ability to intimidate was Planned Parenthood's higher goal.  If Komen had been allowed to pull funding quietly, others might have followed suit, and some of its political allies might have drawn the conclusion that Planned Parenthood is weak.  This victory over Komen will help Planned Parenthood keep its allies and funding sources in line.

Following Mayor's Lead, Teachers' Union Donates to Planned Parenthood.  They haven't agreed lately on education, but they have come together on public health.  A day after Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg made a $250,000 gift to Planned Parenthood, the city's teachers' union is answering the mayor's call for matching donations with a $125,000 gift of its own.

You Should Find the Anti-Komen Backlash Disgusting, Even If You're Pro-Choice.  So, you're on notice:  If you currently donate to PP, you may never stop doing so.

Planned Parenthood: Vicious Not Victorious.  Today [2/3/2012] the Susan G. Komen foundation issued a statement indicating that they will continue to fund existing grants to Planned Parenthood and preserve Planned Parenthood's right to apply for grants in the future.  Numerous mainstream media outlets are gleefully reporting that the Komen foundation has reversed its previous decision to defund Planned Parenthood. However, a close reading of the statement indicates that this is not necessarily the case.

Komen Funding Flap Exposes Planned Parenthood's Lie.  On the surface, the Komen Foundation's reversal of its Planned Parenthood grant cut-off shows the left's power to enforce conformity. What it really reveals is that Planned Parenthood doesn't need taxpayer support.

Planned Parenthood's big lie.  Telemed abortion is the practice by which an abortion doctor from a remote location simply presses a button, which opens a drawer containing the dangerous abortion pill, after a brief teleconference call with the woman.  Telemed abortion doesn't only result in the death of an unborn child; it strips women of their dignity by denying them the courtesy of an in-person visit from a doctor concerned for their health and well-being.  It risks their lives by sending them away with no support and a drug that has led to massive bleeding and hemorrhaging, infection and even death.  So what does Planned Parenthood, the "trusted friend of women," love so much about telemed abortions?  Low overhead costs.

Pelosi: Planned Parenthood Relationship to Girl Scouts 'Very Valuable'.  Rep. Pelosi was featured at the reception with a group of female government leaders to promote the Girl Scout's new initiative "To Get Her There," which seeks to create "gender balanced leadership" in one generation. ... The Girl Scouts have been linked to the nation's largest abortion provider in the past.  In 2010, a panel sponsored by the Girl Scouts USA at the United Nations Commission featured a Planned Parenthood pamphlet called "Healthy, Happy and Hot," according to published reports.

Why Komen defunded Planned Parenthood:  The Associated Press reports that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation's leading breast-cancer charity, will cut off its funding to Planned Parenthood affiliates, where the foundation has traditionally paid for preventive screening services. ... Komen said it could not continue to fund Planned Parenthood because it has adopted new guidelines that bar it from funding organizations under congressional investigation.  The House oversight and investigations subcommittee announced in the fall an investigation into Planned Parenthood's funding.

After cutting ties with Planned Parenthood, Komen donations up 100 percent.  In the wake of this week's announcement that Susan G. Komen for the Cure will no longer be awarding grants to Planned Parenthood, the breast cancer organization's donations have gone up 100 percent in the last two days.

Planned Parenthood vs Komen: PP Gets Its Thug On.  Recently, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation announced that it would longer offer funds and grants to Planned Parenthood, the nation's leading abortion mill operator.  This decision has sent Planned Parenthood over the edge of both sanity and civility with a new fundraising letter that dispenses with its past staid talk about women's healthcare and goes straight for thuggish threats of retaliation, finger pointing, and attacks on other women.

Susan G. Komen defends cutoff of Planned Parenthood.  Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the women's health foundation under intense criticism for breaking ranks with Planned Parenthood, denied Thursday [2/2/2012] that political considerations played any role in its decision to cut off funding to the nation's largest abortion provider.  "We will never bow to political pressure," Nancy G. Brinker, Komen founder and CEO, said in a 3½-minute video statement posted on its website and on YouTube.
[Emphasis added.]

The very next day...
Komen reverses decision to defund Planned Parenthood.  Susan G. Komen for the Cure has reversed its decision to cut off grant money to Planned Parenthood following an intense backlash from women's groups and the left.  The charity did not promise that Planned Parenthood will receive additional grant money, but said it would change its policies in a way that would make Planned Parenthood eligible for further funding.

Planned Parenthood's 3% lie.  The decision by the management of Susan G. Komen For The Cure, a leading fund-raiser for breast cancer awareness, research and examinations, to stop giving Planned Parenthood $680,000 is about abortion politics and not money.  No woman will die because of this decision because the amount of money is superfluous to both organizations.  This is about symbolism in the fight against abortion on demand.

Komen apologizes for 'recent decisions,' pledges to continue funding Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards just released a statement praising Komen for "clarifying" its grant process, saying "we look forward to continuing our partnership with Komen partners, leaders and volunteers."

The Wrath of the Abortion Movement Unleashed on Komen.  If you are confused about what is actually happening with the decision of the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure Foundation to change its grant criteria, you are not alone.  The vicious fury of pro-abortion lobby is the real story of the decision of the Komen foundation to detach itself from grants to Planned Parenthood.  So iconic is the status of Planned Parenthood that, in the wake of this decision, numerous abortion supporters decided to punish Komen.

Fewer walkers for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day.  Participation in this year's Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk for breast cancer across metro Atlanta is noticeably down because of the recent controversy involving grants to Planned Parenthood, organizers said.  There are 1,550 walkers this year — 850 fewer than this time last year, organizers told [WSB-TV] News.

Editor's note:
Older information about the Komen / Planned Parenthood connection (prior to 2012) can be found here.

Virginia Catholic Church Bans Girl Scouts Over Group's Planned Parenthood Link.  The Girl Scouts of the USA organization continues to attract critics for straying from its roots in a more secular and non-traditional direction.  The most recent offense of this nature has prompted St. Timothy's Catholic Church in Chantilly, Virginia to ban the organization from meeting on its grounds because of its alleged connections to Planned Parenthood.

The Core Business of Planned Parenthood.  Despite representing just 3% of Planned Parenthood's reported number of health services provided each year, abortion represents the core business of the organization.

Even Hollywood Can't Make Abortion Pretty.  The latest example: actress Maggie Gyllenhaal's recent comments supporting Planned Parenthood in a Glamour magazine column.  In it, she describes attempts to curtail the flow of tax dollars into Planned Parenthood's already overflowing coffers as attempts to "restrict women's access to reproductive health services — things like cancer screenings, birth control and abortion care."  "Abortion care" — a phrase equal parts disjointed and sickening, and completely out of touch with reality.  Think about it.  How much "care" does abortion provide to the preborn children who are either ripped alive from their mothers' wombs — sometimes piece by piece — or killed in the womb and then stillborn after labor is induced?

Planned Parenthood's Annual Report: Got $487.4M in Tax Money, Did 329,445 Abortions.  According to its latest annual report, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) received $487.4 million in tax dollars over a twelve-month period and performed 329,455 abortions.  In addition, the number of adoption referrals made by the organization continued to decline.

Planned Parenthood - Abortions make up 91% of services; receives over $487 million in federal funding.  The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a pro-life Washington D.C. based organization, posted financial information on Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).  According to an SBA List press release, the PPFA annual report for the year "2009 to 2010 revealed, for the first time, that PPFA topped $1 billion in total net assets."

Planned Parenthood tops $1 billion in assets.  The nation's largest abortion provider topped $1 billion in total net assets in 2009-2010, its first time reaching that mark, according to Planned Parenthood's latest annual report.  The report, released Friday [12/30/2011], is sure to rekindle Republican lawmakers' efforts to defund the organization in 2012.

"Gay" parade attendance mandatory for teen program at Planned Parenthood.  A Planned Parenthood program in New York that employs teenagers required them to attend a homosexual pride parade as a condition of employment, causing some to question the organization's use of taxpayer dollars.

Anti-Abortion group sues White House for access to Planned Parenthood docs.  New Hampshire Right to Life is suing the Obama administration for access to records about a decision to fund Planned Parenthood in violation of state rules, a move that comes amid efforts by some state officials to get rid of virtually all federal funding to The Granite State.

Planned Parenthood NYC Offers Tips For Pro-abortion Conversation Around the 'Holiday Table'.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation's largest abortion provider, received more than $349 million in federal grants and contracts, according to its 2007-08 annual report (the latest data available).  According to a "fact sheet" published by the organization, Planned Parenthood Affiliate Health Centers performed 324,008 abortions in 2008.  Efforts by some Republican members of 112th Congress to defund the organization have failed thus far.

LifeWay Removes Susan G. Komen Bibles from Shelves.  KomenIn a December 14 article, LifeNews.com noted, "In a victory for pro-life advocates, LifeWay Christian Bookstores has taken a Bible sold to fund the Komen breast cancer foundation (which funds [abortion provider] Planned Parenthood) off of its bookshelves."  Approximately one dollar from the purchase of each Bible would have been donated by LifeWay (a resource of the Southern Baptist Convention) to the Komen Foundation, whose affiliates this year gave almost $700,000 to Planned Parenthood.

Women Hold Holiday Party at Planned Parenthood.  A coalition of Texas Democratic women groups drew controversy when they decided to hold their "holiday party" at a Planned Parenthood facility.  Religious pastors and pro-life groups didn't take too kindly to that, calling it inappropriate place to hold such an event.

Barack Obama Recruits Planned Parenthood Exec.  President Obama's campaign is bringing in Heather Colburn, who before lending a hand to Obama worked for EMILY's List, a national organization dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to office, and Planned Parenthood.  Colburn joins the Obama team to lead his "Women for Obama" campaign.

Cain: Planned Parenthood wants black abortions.  Herman Cain, one of the frontrunners in the Republican presidential primary, charged Planned Parenthood with offering only insincere adivce to girls considering abortion, in addition to reiterating his sometimes unclear pro-life position.  After declaring that he is pro-life, without any exceptions for cases of rape and incest, Cain defended his claim that "planned genocide" would be a more accurate name for Planned Parenthood.

Key evidence in Planned Parenthood case destroyed, prosecutors say.  The country's first criminal prosecution of Planned Parenthood was left teetering Friday [10/21/2011] when it was revealed the state of Kansas destroyed abortion records that prosecutors planned to use as evidence.  Johnson County prosecutors asked a judge to delay a Monday hearing to decide if there's enough evidence to try Planned Parenthood on 23 felony counts of falsifying termination of pregnancy reports.

American women don't need Planned Parenthood.  In response to this week's announcement that Planned Parenthood is the subject of a congressional oversight investigation and to earlier action by nine states to strip the scandal-ridden organization of its taxpayer funding, Planned Parenthood is recycling the discredited claim that its principal mission is not to promote and provide abortions but to ensure "women's access to primary and preventive care."  However, its claims are readily dismissed when you look beyond the politically fueled and desperate rhetoric to the facts.

Planned Parenthood investigated.  Republican Congressman Cliff Stearns, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Investigations, formally notified Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, that his committee will investigate her organization.  In a September 15, 2011, letter, Congressman Stearns wrote:  "That Committee has questions about the politics in place and actions undertaken by PPFA and its affiliates relating to its use of federal funding and its compliance with federal restrictions on the funding of abortion."

Conservatives Stop New Boehner CR.  The Republican leadership tried to pass a continuing resolution through the House of Representatives on Wednesday afternoon [9/21/2011] that would have permitted funding for Obamacare implementation, Planned Parenthood, the United Nations Population Fund, and the Palestinian Authority to continue in the new federal fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1.

Obama to bypass New Hampshire Governor and Council to directly fund Planned Parenthood.  The Susan B. Anthony List today condemned the Obama Administration for its decision to directly contract with family planning clinics in the state of New Hampshire.  The move comes after New Hampshire's Executive Council voted in June to no longer contract with Planned Parenthood clinics in the state.

Are Women Really That Naive About Planned Parenthood?  When it comes to abortion, liberal women are clueless and in some cases just plain dumb.  The pro-life movement makes a huge mistake when it only concentrates on the unborn because frankly many modern women are primarily concerned with themselves in an unexpected pregnancy.  This self-centeredness is what fuels the abortion industry's success and blinds women to the truth about abortion providers.  Women are being maimed and killed by unscrupulous and unmonitored women's clinics and it is only through the efforts of pro-lifers that these dens of horror are closed.

Federal judge restores funds to Planned Parenthood.  A federal judge Tuesday [8/30/2011] ordered Kansas to restore federal family planning funds to Planned Parenthood as the case is appealed.  U.S. District Judge Thomas Marten ruled that the funding should be provided to Planned Parenthood on a quarterly basis, not the monthly allocation sought by the state.  Planned Parenthood had threatened to close its Hays, Kansas, clinic this Friday unless it learned by then that its federal family planning funds would start flowing again.

Numerous Planned Parenthoods close in wake of new Texas law.  Still reeling from funding cuts in Texas, Planned Parenthood is closing clinics and merging affiliates throughout the state, Texas Right to Life reports.  The national abortion giant received a major blow this summer when Texas Governor and presidential contender Rick Perry signed into law a bill that stripped the organization of its funding, and prohibited the state government from contracting with any organization that provides abortions.

SEIU Puts Hood Back in Planned Parenthood.  If further local Planned Parenthood shops decide to unionize under SEIU, if would prove a very complicated — although admittedly ironic twist, and certainly one full of poetic justice — for the brazen abortion provider.

Arizona Court Rules Against Planned Parenthood on Abortion Requirements.  In a blow to Planned Parenthood, an Arizona appeals court has lifted an injuction that blocked abortion regulations from taking effect in the state.  After hearing arguments from both sides earlier this month, the Arizona Court of Appeals on Aug. 11 overturned a Maricopa County Superior Court ruling, which found that portions of the 2009 law — signed by Gov. Jan Brewer and challenged by Planned Parenthood of Arizona — could cause "irreparable harm" to women.

Judge blocks Kansas law defunding Planned Parenthood.  A federal judge on Monday [8/1/2011] blocked implementation of a new Kansas law that would strip federal family planning funding from the state's Planned Parenthood chapter, dealing Republican lawmakers their second major legal setback to their recent moves against abortion providers.

Federal Judge Suspends Kansas Law Defunding Planned Parenthood.  A federal judge has issued a temporary injunction against a Kansas law that bans funding of abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood.  According to the Associated Press, U.S. District Court Judge J. Thomas Marten was "incredulous" at the state's insistence that the law prohibiting abortion funding did not target Planned Parenthood specifically, ruling that the law was intended to punish the abortion provider and would eventually be overturned.

The Number One Killer in the Black Community.  New York City, the home of Planned Parenthood, aborts nearly 60% of all black pregnancies.  Yet abortion activists denounce any effort to address this epidemic of abortion. ... With a $1 billion annual budget and $1 billion in assets, Planned Parenthood has historically targeted African-Americans with birth control through population control efforts.  Today, the nation's largest abortion chain kills 332,278 (disproportionately black) in the latest year reported, providing only 7,021 women prenatal care and 977 adoption referrals.

GOP has 'blueprint for action' on Planned Parenthood.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which receives about $1 million a day in taxpayer funds, should be investigated by Congress, a group of House Republicans said in a Capitol Hill event Thursday [7/14/2011].

Pro-Lifers Tell Congress: Investigate Planned Parenthood!  A shocking new report from a leading pro-life organization "documents the known and alleged abuses by Planned Parenthood," providing evidence for a congressional probe of the nation's largest abortion provider.

The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood.  Although the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA or Planned Parenthood) advertises itself as an organization promoting health for women and families, it is the nation's largest abortion provider and has been plagued by scandal and abuse.  Furthermore, PPFA and its affiliates receive hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayers' funds every year  — a significant portion of which comes from the federal government.  PPFA often tries to underplay the significance of abortion to its business model.  However, as this report details, abortion has a tremendous impact on Planned Parenthood's bottom-line.  This is true to a greater degree each year, and Planned Parenthood has plans to expand its abortion business.

Texas to become largest state to defund Planned Parenthood.  Texas is about to become the largest state to defund Planned Parenthood.  Its majority-Republican Legislature passed a health care bill Monday that would bar the nation's largest abortion provider from receiving any state family funds, according to local news reports.

Planned Parenthood's Medicaid Misinformation In Indiana.  Planned Parenthood's legal team has been extremely busy these days trying to stop various states from defunding their group.  Texas, Wisconsin and New Hampshire joined Indiana, Kansas and North Carolina this week as they decided that taxpayer dollars should not fund the mega abortion chain.  But Indiana is Ground Zero in the fight to strip Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer dollars.

Texas to defund Planned Parenthood.  The Texas Legislature approved a bill Monday [6/27/2011] that would both compel the state to push the Obama administration to convert Texas's Medicaid program into a block grant and defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.

Indiana Abortion Law Defunding Planned Parenthood is Blocked by U.S. Judge.  An Indiana law defunding Planned Parenthood was blocked by a federal judge who said opponents of the statute showed a likelihood of success in the lawsuit.  U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt in Indianapolis today [6/25/2011] granted Planned Parenthood's request for a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit filed after Republican Governor Mitch Daniels signed the law in May.

Who needs a ballot box or a legislature or a governor?  We've got activist judges!

Defunding Planned Parenthood One State at a Time.  As the fight for life over death continues, the battlefield has shifted to the states, where legislatures realigned politically as a result of the November 2010 mid-term elections are doing yeoman's work in the defense of innocents.  This work consists in defunding the mammoth tax-payer funded abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.  Three states prominently highlighted in this cause are Kansas, North Carolina, and Indiana — all of which have taken serious steps toward curbing the flow of funds into Planned Parenthood's coffers.

Abortion showdown could cost Indiana $4.3 billion.  A looming showdown over Indiana's new law that cuts funding for the Planned Parenthood organization may test how far Republican-led states are willing to go in pressing their tough new anti-abortion agendas.

Planned Parenthood: What about the fraud?  Several states have either passed or are near passing new laws that would effectively bar Planned Parenthood from receiving government money, including Medicaid reimbursements.  The Obama administration has come to Planned Parenthood's rescue.  In the first of these instances, the administration has sent a letter to Indiana that says it is basically illegal to cut off Planned Parenthood Medicaid funding.

Administration shoots down Indiana's denial of funds to Planned Parenthood.  Evidently, even if you are an extremely profitable business without taxpayer support like Planned Parenthood, you still get to suck off the taxpayer because of the government's pro-abortion policies.  The Obama administration is denying Indiana's request to stop funding PP as long as they perform abortions.

Lila Rose Vs. Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the abortion Goliath, has met its David — and her name is Lila Rose.  At age 15, Lila Rose founded Live Action, the organization whose undercover investigations have exposed PPFA's illegal and unethical operations and unleashed a political firestorm.  Thanks in large measure to her efforts, Planned Parenthood's tap on the taxpayers is under assault all across the country.

Judge allows Indiana to cut Planned Parenthood funds.  Indiana won a key victory in its fight to cut off public funding for Planned Parenthood on Wednesday [5/11/2011] when a federal judge refused to block a tough new abortion law, a move that could boost Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels' image among social conservatives as he considers running for president.

Senate approves bill that cuts off funds to Planned Parenthood.  Indiana could become the first state to end Medicaid coverage for Planned Parenthood services, after the Senate on Tuesday [4/19/2011] approved a bill that would cut off taxpayer money to the reproductive health-care provider.  "The taxpayers will no longer fund an organization that provides abortion as part of their services that they give to the public," said Sen. Michael Young, R-Indianapolis, a co-sponsor of the measure.

11 Republican Senators Permit Former Planned Parenthood Director to Become Federal Judge.  Senate Democrats were able to confirm the former director of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island to a lifetime federal judgeship after 11 Republicans voted to close debate on the nomination and allow it to come up for a final vote.  As a lawyer, the new judge was also involved in litigation against the tobacco industry and a failed lawsuit against former manufacturers of lead paint.

Five Truths about Planned Parenthood.  Anyone who believes PP is primarily concerned with the health of women and girls needs to look at the record.

Nation's largest abortion provider: Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood always has been selectively proud of its abortion affiliation.  But throughout the congressional debate over its funding, Planned Parenthood has worked hard to keep under wraps the fact that it is increasingly synonymous with abortion.

150 Catholic colleges have ties to Planned Parenthood.  The Catholic Church may be officially opposed to abortion and contraception, but a report by a Catholic education watchdog group contends that it has found more than 150 instances of links between U.S. Catholic colleges and universities and Planned Parenthood, the nation's leading family planning organization and the largest provider of abortion-related services.

Planned Parenthood Spent More Than $1 Million to Elect Dems in 2010.  Here's something to keep in mind as Democrats risk a government shutdown in order to preserve federal subsidies of Planned Parenthood.  In 2010, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds.  By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period, according to the Center's research.

Top 10 Spending Cuts Thwarted by Democrats:  [#7]  Planned Parenthood:  Why is this merchant of death in the federal budget in the first place?  As the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood makes more than $50 million a year in profits.  With the federal budget in need of cutbacks, this one is a no-brainer.

The Pro-Abortion Party.  Planned Parenthood receives millions in taxpayer subsidies and spends hundreds of thousands on lobbying and campaigning.  In February, OpenSecrets.org reported that Planned Parenthood's political action committee "donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats — during the 2010 election cycle" and "spent more than $443,000 overall."  Planned Parenthood made an additional $905,796 in "independent expenditures" during the 2010 cycle — exercising its right to free speech pursuant to last year's Citizens United decision.

Planned Parenthood Did One Abortion Every 95 Seconds.  Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009, according to a fact sheet the group published last month.  That is about as many as the 333,012 people who lived in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Pelosi's Planned Parenthood War.  Someone has to have the temerity to step forward, pull the plug on the death camps and discontinue funding organizations that pretend to care for women in one room while killing offspring in another. ... Kindly old Grandmother Nancy Pelosi believes "respect for women ... and ... what is right for our country" is why Americans should be forced to bankroll an organization that destroys the lives of future Americans.

Things Planned Parenthood's 'Truth Team' Forgot to Mention.  Claim:  "Planned Parenthood cannot survive without federal funds."  So states Jonathan Alter.  Really?  PPFA has almost one billion dollars in net assets ($994,700,000), and in its most recent filing reported $737 million in revenues for the year, not counting the $363 million from taxpayers.  Any untaxed corporation should be able to scrape by on $737 million in revenues.

Planned Parenthood Is About Abortion.  Planned Parenthood has done a great job of using the media to cultivate an image of a squeaky-clean organization that provides such unobjectionable-sounding itmes as reproductive health services and family-planning aids in order to prevent unwanted pregnancies and reduce the need for abortion.  Despite the fact that the wider media consistently describes them as such, that depiction is not accurate.  It can't be overlooked that Planned Parenthood performs abortions on a massive scale:  332,278 abortions in 2009, more than one-quarter of all abortions nationwide.

Planned Parenthood owns Democrats.  Is ensuring taxpayer funding for the largest provider of abortions in America really worth shutting down the federal government?  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid sure thinks so.  Reid took to the Senate floor yesterday to explain why Democrats have not been able to reach a compromise with Republicans over the budget.  He said that "the main issue that [is] holding this matter [up is] the choice of women, reproductive rights."

Planned Parenthood spent more than $1 million electing Democrats last cycle.  The organization's political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats — during the 2010 election cycle.  The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.  Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle — money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements.

Planned Parenthood: So Accustomed to Lies.  Perhaps you've seen the commercials touting the life-saving benefits of Planned Parenthood.  They're very professional, very persuasive, and clearly very expensive.  Viewers might wonder why, if Planned Parenthood can afford this multimillion-dollar image advertising, it would be devastated by the loss of about $300 million in taxpayer support?

Like Voting for Hitler!  Though Hispanics made up 12.5% of the U.S. population Hispanic women accounted for 25% of all U.S. abortions in 2008-10.  San Antonio boasts a large Hispanic population and I imagine that the Planned Parenthood killing clinics there are extremely busy.  Almost all Democrats support the right to abortion and for the continued funding of Planned Parenthood Clinics.  To me, Blacks and Hispanics who vote for pro abortion Democrats are like "Jews voting for Hitler!"

The Number One Killer in the Black Community.  New York City, the home of Planned Parenthood, aborts nearly 60% of all black pregnancies.  Yet abortion activists denounce any effort to address this epidemic of abortion. ... With a $1 billion annual budget and $1 billion in assets, Planned Parenthood has historically targeted African-Americans with birth control through population control efforts.  Today, the nation's largest abortion chain kills 332,278 (disproportionately black) in the latest year reported, providing only 7,021 women prenatal care and 977 adoption referrals.

Planned Parenthood CEO's Mammogram Claims Are False.  [Scroll down]  We got a tip from former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, that Planned Parenthood does not provide any mammogram services.  Just to be sure, our investigative team called up 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in many major metropolitan areas.  Every single one of the clinics told our actor that no, they do not provide mammograms.

Getting Real About Planned Parenthood.  For a very long time, Planned Parenthood has been somewhat untouchable, despite its dark past.  [Abby] Johnson helps explain why by telling the story about how she saw the light.

'Truth Tour' Does Not Mention the 332,278 Abortions Performed in 2009.  Planned Parenthood Federation of America is fighting a congressional attempt to end federal funding for the organization with a nationwide bus tour, dubbed the "Truth Tour."  The organization's bright pink bus advertises various Planned Parenthood statistics and health data, but it does not include the number of abortions the organization has performed.

Planned Parenthood: A culture of sexploitation.  [Scroll down]  It is hard to imagine conditions more conducive to the widespread sexual exploitation of American children than those in which health care professionals are willfully ignorant of the sex trafficking in front of their eyes.  These videos raise this five-alarm question:  If we are just now learning that Planned Parenthood is willing to help actors portraying a sex-trafficking pimp and a prostituted juvenile, isn't it likely that actual sex traffickers have been using Planned Parenthood clinics for years?

Busting the Birth-Control Myth.  Planned Parenthood claims women get more abortions if they don't have access to contraception — though research suggests otherwise.

Time to Defund the Destruction of Human Life.  According to the Daily Caller, the number of prenatal clients Planned Parenthood served was less than 0.09 percent of the total services it provided in 2008.  Pregnant women seeking help from Planned Parenthood were 27 times more likely to receive an abortion than to receive prenatal care or be referred for adoption.

Planned Parenthood Poised to Take a Very Hard Fall — And It Should.  All of a sudden, congressional appropriations that have gone unquestioned for decades may get zeroed out, and there is no better encapsulation of this than the fight over taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.  Simultaneously the crown jewel of the abortion industry and the abortion lobby, he liberal political powerhouse is poised to take a very hard fall.

GOP must be clear in defunding Planned Parenthood.  For decades the American voter has staunchly opposed public funding of abortion, and for decades the abortion-absolutists have made an end-run around this prohibition by funding non-abortion services of Planned Parenthood, which funding makes possible the availability of other funds for abortion services.  This charade must end, and Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., has led that fight successfully in the House.

House cuts off funding for healthcare reform, Planned Parenthood.  In a quick succession of two-minute votes, the House adopted three amendments to their stopgap budget bill that eliminates healthcare reform funding through the end of the fiscal year.  The House also approved, 240-185, an amendment barring federal Title X family planning grants that was aimed squarely at Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood staffer jumps ship to join pro-life group Live Action.  A former director and eight-year employee of Planned Parenthood has left the organization to join one of its chief nemeses — pro-life group Live Action.  Live Action announced Wednesday that Abby Johnson would be coming aboard in the role of chief research strategist.  The announcement comes after a series of video exposés, released by Live Action, showed Planned Parenthood staffers aiding pimps in the sex trafficking of under-aged girls.

Planned Parenthood's Misery Index.  [Scroll down]  As you might expect, [Abby] Johnson no longer works for Planned Parenthood.  Participating in an all-too-clear sonogram-guided abortion was the termination point for her.  But it had been building.  There was the "incredible irony" that, as Johnson puts it, "I had a career in educating women about contraception" and yet three times "conceived while using contraceptives."  It was the third time when she kept her child, Grace.  Complexity, confusion, disconnect — these are all words Johnson uses to describe what was going on in her life and profession.

De-Fund the Predators of Planned Parenthood.  Republicans have had the opportunity to de-fund Planned Parenthood many times over the years and failed.  Do they have the will and the courage to pay more than lip service now?  In the wake of the Philadelphia Horror and related "women's health" butcher cases, the momentum to strip the abortion industry racket of taxpayer funding is stronger than ever.

'The Greatest Human Genocide in the History of Humanity'.  Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said on Thursday [2/10/2011] that because modern technology can reveal fetal development in the womb, Americans are starting to 'wake up' and realize the reality that abortion ends a human life.  "And I am convinced more than ever that we're asking that real question, 'Does abortion really kill a baby?'" Franks said at a press conference on Capitol Hill to discuss the latest efforts by Republicans in the House to introduce legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that receive taxpayer dollars through Title X Family Planning provisions.

Bad Politics Making Abortion Unsafe And Definitely Not Rare.  Abortion is a billion dollar industry yet Planned Parenthood gets taxpayer funding.  Although most of the politicians that get campaign donations from Planned Parenthood and NARAL are Democrats, pro-choice Republicans and Independents are just as responsible for the laxity in monitoring these merchants of death to women and the unborn.

Planned Parenthood plans to expand abortion services nationwide.  Abortion may soon be more readily available than ever before, thanks to a new requirement from Planned Parenthood that more of its centers nationwide offer the service.  At least one local chapter so far has decided to withdraw from the network rather than comply.  A local office of Planned Parenthood in South Texas is dropping out of the nationwide network of "America's most trusted provider of reproductive health care" starting January 1.

Networks Still AWOL as Now Fox News Covers Planned Parenthood Sting.  On Wednesday's [2/2/2011] O'Reilly Factor, guest host Laura Ingraham devoted two segments to Lila Rose's latest undercover video showing how Planned Parenthood aiding and abetting the covering up of sex crimes. ... On the other hand, the Big Three networks' prominent morning and evening news programs have yet to cover the secret videos.

Remembering The Past And Looking Forward.  "The last thing I saw was the tiny, perfectly formed backbone sucked into the tube, and then it was gone.  And the uterus was empty.  Totally empty."  These disturbing words describe a live abortion as witnessed by former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson.  Her recently published book, Unplanned, recalls her experience as a pro-choice activist who came to the stark realization that a human life is indeed ended each time an abortion occurs.

Mike Pence Introduces Bill to Stop Tax Dollars from Going to Planned Parenthood.  Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would prohibit abortion providers from receiving federal funds through Title X of the Public Health Service Act, including Planned Parenthood, which received more than $360 million in government grants and contracts in Fiscal Year 2008-2009.

Planned Parenthood Launches 'Social Change Initiative'.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is signaling its intention to dominate the national sex education agenda.  Specifically, Planned Parenthood's Web site announced the group is preparing to launch a nationwide "social change initiative" to end the "stigma and shame about sex" in American culture.

Rep. Michele Bachmann: De-Fund Planned Parenthood.  Rep. Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.) is calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to de-fund Planned Parenthood after the newly elected Republican majority takes charge next month.  "Well, I think one thing that we can do, quite simply, is to withhold funding from Planned Parenthood," Bachmann said when asked by CNSNews.com what practical steps she believed the in-coming House majority could take to protect unborn babies.

MSNBC's Mitchell Touts Planned Parenthood Poll.  During Tuesday's [12/6/2010] 1PM ET hour on MSNBC, anchor Andrea Mitchell highlighted a new poll from the left-wing pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood that claimed that voters do not trust Sarah Palin on so-called "women's health issues":  "A new poll suggests that she may have a tough time getting voters to trust her on at least one front...  54% of registered voters do not trust Palin on those issues."

Planned Parenthood Is Worried... and Should Be.  In an e-mail to supporters the day after the 2010 midterm elections, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards wrote, "There's no getting around it:  the results of yesterday's election are truly alarming."  She lamented the "extremists" who have been elected and who will "pursue a dangerous agenda."  That agenda, of course, is saving unborn children from being murdered.

Planned Parenthood Got $349.6 Million in Tax Dollars, Performed 324,008 Abortions.  Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation.  According to a "fact sheet" published by the organization, Planned Parenthood Affiliate Health Centers performed 324,008 abortions in 2008.

Planned Parenthood Makes Post-Election Appeal.  In a letter sent to supporters by e-mail on the day after Republicans were swept in as the new majority in the House of Representatives and gained seats in the Senate, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards used the election results to press for an "emergency donation" to help fight against "dangerous politicians who oppose women's health and the right to choose."

Quietly racking up the abortion toll.  While Planned Parenthood continues to sit on its annual report for 2008-2009, new documents found hidden on its labyrinthine website give taxpayers an insider's look into the beleaguered abortion monopoly it is helping fund.  The numbers paint the grisly picture of an organization beset by financial problems yet determined to increase income by killing more preborn human beings.

A black hole for babies and bucks.  Why do we continue to fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of $349 million annually and not hold it accountable for how it spends that money? ... Why is an organization that kills more than 300,000 innocent unborn children each year sanctioned and funded by our government?  Can an organization that operates more than 800 facilities in 50 states and has an annual budget of more than $1 billion really be hiding from public view?

Defund Planned Parenthood.  Some people may not abhor Planned Parenthood for its past and present racism and abortion profiteering.  Others may shrug at its systemic, criminal avoidance of statutory rape laws, and tawdry "sexual education" guides aimed at teenagers.  But perhaps even some of the group's most ardent defenders will recoil from the latest addition to the odious outfit's ongoing carnival of moral degradation.

Government Funded Front Groups.  [Scroll down]  Planned Parenthood, one of America's leading abortion providers is also the recipient of hundreds of millions of taxpayer donations every year.  Planned Parenthood also vigorously supports Democrats including the current occupant of the Oval Office.  A source of money and votes so potent the Illuminati of the Government Party feel it necessary to pay homage during every election cycle saluting the abortion flag and taking the pledge of loyalty.

Rewriting History on Abortion.  "There's absolutely nothing in anything that [Susan B. Anthony] ever said or did that would indicate she was anti-abortion," Planned Parenthood founder Gloria Feldt.  Absolutely nothing?  A quick Google search disproves that in a hurry.

Outrage Over ACORN, but Not Abortion.  The ACORN scandal shows that if Congress wants to act, it can.  Within weeks of Fox airing videos of a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute being advised by ACORN "community organizers" on how to evade taxes and set up a prostitution ring, our stalwart Washington legislators voted to cut off federal funds to the organization  But similar publicized abuses at Planned Parenthood — workers agreeing to cover up rape or earmarking funds to abort black babies — all captured on video and audio — produced no similar action in Washington to cut off funds.  Why?

Planned Parenthood Deserves the ACORN Treatment.  Lost in the deserved attention to the ACORN sting film has been [James] O'Keefe's first release, a 2007 expose of the systemic corruption at another liberal activist organization, Planned Parenthood.  ACORN is losing some of its federal funding in part because of O'Keefe's video.  But the Planned Parenthood story, in which O'Keefe and a friend posing as his pregnant minor girlfriend expose the abortion giant's willingness to cover up alleged statutory rape, is just as incriminating.

The Profitable Nonprofit.  Left-wing activists are indignant at obscene oil company profits, hefty CEO bonuses, and sweet golden parachutes — but what about expansion of the No. 1 violator of human rights in the United States?  No, it's not Dick Cheney and the CIA.  It's Planned Parenthood.  The abortion giant took home $85 million in "excess of revenue over expenses" (a nifty way of saying profits) and had an operating budget of over $1 billion for the 2007-2008 fiscal year, according to its latest annual report.

Planned Parenthood Should Not Receive Federal Tax Dollars!  Planned Parenthood receives more than $300 million each year from the federal government and state governments for its "family planning" activities.  Planned Parenthood's annual report says it has a nearly $1 billion budget and gets one-third of that money from government grants and contracts.  Planned Parenthood, however, is also the largest killer of unborn babies through abortion in the nation.  By its own admission, Planned Parenthood exterminated more than a quarter million babies last year!  In addition, various affiliates of Planned Parenthood are under investigation for numerous illegal activities.

Planned Parenthood Scandals Spread.  In Kansas, the Planned Parenthood clinic is facing 107 felony and misdemeanor charges … for a variety of alleged crimes that include falsifying medical records and performing abortions past the date permitted by state law.  In addition, the clinic faces charges of covering up statutory rape cases involving underage girls.

Video captures abortion coaching.  Planned Parenthood of Indiana has suspended a nurse after the release of an undercover videotape showing her coaching a supposed 13-year-old on how to duck Indiana's laws about parental consent on abortion and the reporting of child sex abuse.  The videotape shows Lila Rose, the president of a university pro-life group and a brunette, posing as a blond 13-year-old girl named "Brianna" and telling the Planned Parenthood nurse at the clinic in Bloomington, Ind., that she is pregnant by a 31-year-old man.

Indiana Planned Parenthood Suspends Nurse Taped by Pro-life Activist Posing as 13-Year-Old.  Planned Parenthood of Indiana has suspended a staff member at its Bloomington, Ind., clinic after a pro-life student group posted a video online that allegedly shows the nurse advising a pro-life activist who is posing as a 13-year-old girl.  On the video, the activist suggests that she is pregnant and that the father of the child may be 31 years old.

More Proof the Inmates Are Running the Asylum.  In Bloomington, Indiana, an undercover pro-life college student told a Planned Parenthood "nurse" that she was 13 and had been impregnated by a 31-year-old man.  The nurse told the girl not to disclose her age or the age of the man.  She then encouraged the girl to lie and say that the "boy" in question was 14.  Apparently, local police, although they have been notified of the statutory rape implications in this case, have chosen to do nothing to investigate Planned Parenthood.  They did, however, post extra security around the clinic in case of a "pro-life backlash."

But wait -- there's more!
Another abortion clinic under investigation.  Another Indiana abortion clinic is accused of violating the law and failing to report statutory rape.  For the second time this month, Lila Rose, a college student at UCLA and founder of Live Action Films, walked into an Indiana Planned Parenthood clinic and videotaped what appears to be damaging criminal evidence of staff members.

Kansas Legal System Protects Planned Parenthood.  The situation in Kansas is extremely fluid and legal maneuverings are taking place nearly every day on the criminal prosecution of Planned Parenthood by Johnson County D.A. [Phill] Kline.  The Kansas Attorney General and Kansas Supreme Court seem to be working together to forbid a key judge from testifying on behalf of Kline in his prosecution of Planned Parenthood.  The A.G. was also trying to get abortion records back from Kline's office apparently in order to sabotage his case against Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood Puts A Hit Out On Black Children.  Planned Parenthood has a public face that says they are supporting the rights of women to assert their reproductive rights.  Unfortunately, recent investigations and reports suggest that this organization is actually peddling death in an aggressive and unethical manner.  In Kansas the organization is under criminal investigation for falsifying documents and performing late term abortions.  It faces 23 felony counts.  Planned Parenthood has also dealt in the realm of deception concerning the age of its customers.  In Ohio, Planned Parenthood is being sued for failing to report the rape of a 16-year-old by her father.

[ ... and the feminists are totally silent.]

Aborting the Truth:  Deception behind taxpayer funded-abortion clinics.  A nationally recognized organization may be intentionally distributing false information while protecting rapists and child predators.  And the federal government has given them $3.9 billion since 1987 in taxpayer funds.  Planned Parenthood has been caught in a tangled web.  The spotlight is finally being shed on this organization, which has failed to legally report the pregnancies of a 16-year-old who was raped by her father, of an 11-year-old girl who was impregnated by her stepfather, and of a 15-year-old who was sexually assaulted and impregnated by her stepfather's friend.

Planned Parenthood Should Not Receive Federal Tax Dollars!  Planned Parenthood receives more than $300 million each year from the federal government and state governments for its "family planning" activities.  Planned Parenthood's annual report says it has a nearly $1 billion budget and gets one-third of that money from government grants and contracts.  Planned Parenthood, however, is also the largest killer of unborn babies through abortion in the nation.  By its own admission, Planned Parenthood exterminated more than a quarter million babies last year!  In addition, various affiliates of Planned Parenthood are under investigation for numerous illegal activities.

Kansas Planned Parenthood Scandal Rolls On.  The scandal in Kansas involving a Planned Parenthood clinic and official government corruption is probably one of the most unreported stories in recent history.  The Kansas media has been dutifully misreporting the scandal and its implications, while the so-called mainstream media (MSM) outside of Kansas appears committed to ignoring it altogether.

The Racism and Politics of Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthoods across the nation are strategically placed in low-income, highly African-American populated areas — where poor women are more likely to have access.  In fact, 62.5% of PP clinics are located in these communities and when you include Hispanic neighborhoods, the number increases to 70%.

Planned Parenthood Slush Fund.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is a near-billion-dollar organization, the nation's number one abortion merchant, and maybe the world's largest as well.  It is also a major consumer of tax dollars, more than $300 million in 2006, with the Democratic Congress poised to give them even more.

Planned Parenthood Sues to Strike Down Missouri Abortion Law.  Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit Monday [8/20/2007] seeking to strike down a new Missouri law that it claims could eliminate abortion services in large parts of the state by subjecting clinics to stringent state oversight.

Pro-life advocate blasts lack of inspections of abortion clinics.  The head of American Life League's "Stop Planned Parenthood" division says many abortion facilities aren't inspected as often as the law calls for.  Jim Sedlak says this shows that the elected officials who claim to support women's rights have no concern for women's rights, not to mention the rights of unborn children.

Planned Parenthood Reports Record Abortions, High Profits.  Despite a drop in donations and the first fall in income from clinics in its history, the nation's biggest abortion provider made a high profit last year, thanks to the American taxpayer.  Pro-lifers want this to stop.

Planned Parenthood:  Dialing for death.  In a recent press release, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) announced that it would be "giving customers the power to make a difference with every [cell phone] call they make."  Tragically, however, when Planned Parenthood talks about making a difference, we know it's the difference between life and death.

Planned Parenthood Blamed for Woman's Death.  A California woman has filed a medical malpractice and wrongful death lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, alleging that the abortion provider contributed to her daughter's death.

There were 91,700 Abortions in New York City in 2004.  For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country. … [Planned Parenthood]'s Margaret Sanger Center in Manhattan is the largest abortion provider in New York, with 11,000 abortions performed a year.

Poor Planned Parenthood?  As much as liberals decry major corporations that act as if they're above the law, there's always quiet when the subject is Planned Parenthood, America's No. 1 corporate provider of abortions. During its 2005-2006 fiscal year, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America performed a record 264,943 abortions, reported a tidy profit of $55.8 million — and received a record high in taxpayer funding of $305.3 million. This is one corporation the media hold in the highest regard.

Planned Parenthood Threatens to Sue Undercover Activist.  Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles is threatening to sue a student pro-life activist who recorded an abortion clinic employee encouraging her to lie about her age to avoid being reported as a victim of statutory rape.  Lila Rose, an 18-year-old sophomore at the University of California Los Angeles, is the founder of a pro-life magazine on campus.  In March, she entered a Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles (PPLA) clinic, posing as a pregnant 15-year-old and said her boyfriend was 23 years old.

Abortion Provider Caught Encouraging Minor to Lie About Age.  Planned Parenthood is under fire after one of its employees was recorded encouraging a student — who was posing as a pregnant minor — to lie about her age in order to obtain an abortion without the abortion provider having to report the "statutory rape" to the police.

Undercover double standards.  Where are the muckraking champions when you need them?  Intrepid Lila Rose has learned the hard way:  Not all undercover journalists are equal.

Portland Development Commission looks beyond abortion, OKs clinic.  In a controversial vote before a standing-room crowd, the city of Portland gave its OK on Wednesday for Planned Parenthood to relocate its regional headquarters to a city-owned lot along Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Abortion Debate Rages in Chicago Suburb.  The name of the company applying for the building permits sounded like just another firm.  On paper, the brick structure looked much like any other medical complex.  Then it was revealed that the company, Gemini Office Development, is a subsidiary of Planned Parenthood — and that the building would include space where abortions would be performed.

Planned Parenthood Federation Names A New President.  Cecile Richards, a liberal political activist and the daughter of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, is the new president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Why are we paying for Planned Parenthood?  Planned Parenthood has received in the last two years — that they've reported — over $500 million in taxpayer money.  America needs to wake up to this disturbing fact!  On one hand, Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, is funded in large part by our hard-earned tax dollars.  This money is allocated from Congress.  Then Planned Parenthood turns around and sues Congress for passing a law banning partial-birth abortion.

Will Holly Patterson Die in Vain?  Eighteen-year old Holly Patterson entered a Planned Parenthood clinic on a Wednesday expecting to safely abort her pregnancy.  Within one week, she was dead.

Administration Files Appeal in Partial Birth Abortion Case.  "Planned Parenthood is fully prepared to go back to court to ensure that this dangerous abortion ban never harms American woman," said Planned Parenthood President Gloria Feldt said in a statement.  She called the partial birth abortion ban a "transparent act of hostility toward women's health, the right to medical privacy and the Supreme Court of the United States."

The Blackmun Wall The Blackmun Wall:  a listing of the women killed by legal abortions.  Abortion clinic operators like Planned Parenthood like to pretend that the decision written by Justice Blackmun made abortions safe and legal, but the truth is that making abortion legal never made abortion safe.  Abortionists are the bottom-feeders of the medical profession and abortion procedures jeopardize the health of the mother in order to terminate pregnancy.  "Safe legal abortions" killed every one of the women on this site.

Put up or shut up.  It isn't really surprising that Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are attempting to hide the facts.  They've been doing so ever since the existence of the procedure [partial-birth abortion] became known.  They first claimed that no such procedure existed.  When that collapsed, they argued that the fetus was killed by the anesthesia administered to the mother.  When anesthesiologists protested, they admitted that this wasn't true — but that the procedure was so rarely performed it wasn't worth talking about.  And when that lie was exposed, they urged that it was only done to save the life of the mother or in cases of severe fetal deformity.  None of those statements was true.  Now they are saying partial-birth abortions are being performed to save the health of the mother.  Let's see the proof.

Pro-Abortion Group Partners With Local Library System:  A financial agreement between Planned Parenthood of Central Texas and the City of Waco has enabled the pro-abortion group to incorporate its agenda into the local public library system.  The Planned Parenthood library also warns patrons that it can deny access "to anyone who has participated in protests," against the group.

Planned Parenthood Celebrates 30 Years Of Abortion:  Pro-abortion protesters gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday [1/22/2003] to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion throughout pregnancy, and to warn of what they call President "Bush's war on women."

Defund Planned Parenthood.  This is … a column about a "non-profit," tax-exempt corporation that rakes in more than a quarter-billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer money every year and boasts of being the world's largest "abortion provider."  It's called Planned Parenthood.  It is a disgusting, evil organization that somehow operates under its own set of rules — unaccountable in any way, shape or form to the rules and regulations governing other so-called "non-profits."

Black Pro-Lifers Demand Parties Refuse Planned Parenthood Funding.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is expected to spend $10 million this year on voter mobilization, according to The Los Angeles Times, and its political action committee has donated $60,000 to federal office candidates so far this year.  Planned Parenthood receives a little over $300 million in government grants and contracts, according to its latest annual report, and its political action fund voted in June "to recommend endorsement of Senator Obama" for president.

Planned Parenthood Vows to Help Elect 'Progressive Voices'.  The head of the largest abortion provider in America declared Tuesday [6/13/2006] that she and her organization — which accepts taxpayer funds — intend to use their resources to "swing the vote" and "help progressive voices win" elections across the country.

Planned Parenthood Secretly Buys Land for New Offices.  The nation's biggest abortion provider is seeking to avoid opposition when buying property or building new facilities through secrecy, or what one pro-life leader called "a series of cover-ups" in such places as Denver, Colo., Portland, Ore., and Aurora, Ill.

Planned Parenthood Offers Gift Certificates.  The nation's leading provider of abortions has caused a stir by offering holiday gift certificates that cover the basic health-care services offered at Indiana's 35 clinics, as well as "the recipient's choice of birth-control method." ... But critics of Planned Parenthood argue the abortion provider is making a mockery of the Christmas [season], trivializing the plight of the unborn and continuing to denigrate people of faith, just as the organization's various "Choice on Earth" programs did in the past.  "The tragedy is that almost 6,000 fewer children will be celebrating a first Christmas this year because they were aborted in Planned Parenthood's Indiana clinics," Mike Fichter, president and CEO of Indiana Right to Life, told the Associated Press.

Shame on Planned Parenthood.  Planned Parenthood has reached a new low.  Planned Parenthood-Indiana is giving the "gift of death" to the unborn this holiday season.  The organization has announced that gift certificates in $25 increments can be purchased for exams, insurance copays and medication at its 35 clinics in Indiana.  The certificates can also be used to pay for abortions, adding to the 5,000 it says it performs each year in Indiana.  This means that girls and women will be given another means and economic incentive to choose death rather than to choose life.

Planned Parenthood, a Social Disease.  The mission of Planned Parenthood has changed since the days of founder Margaret Sanger.  Among the eugenicist's progressive efforts, in 1939, Sanger conceived the "Negro Project" to reduce the population of "inferior" black Americans.  Today, Planned Parenthood claims to deliver "vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide."  Noble language.  But visiting PPF's abortion-focused website makes traditional Americans feel dirty.

GAO:  Planned Parenthood received $657 million in tax dollars over last seven years.  The Government Accountability Office has a released a report, "Fiscal Years 2002-2009 Obligations, Disbursements, and Expenditures for Selected Organizations Involved in Health-Related Activities."  But despite the soporific title, the report contains some pretty startling revelations about the amount government funding going to groups either perform abortions or advocate it.

Olson slams federal funds for family planning organizations.  American taxpayers meted out at least $967 million to family planning organizations such as Planned Parenthood over the last eight years — money that anti-abortion lawmakers claim frees up other private dollars to perform abortions.  Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, led the effort by 31 Republican lawmakers to obtain an audit from Congress' watchdog Government Accountability Office on federal spending for family planning organizations.

Pence:  GAO Report Confirms it is Time to Defund Planned Parenthood.  U.S. Congressman Mike Pence today issued the following statement regarding the release of a new Government Accountability Office (GAO) report revealing that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America received $657.1 million in taxpayer dollars from Fiscal Year 2002 to Fiscal Year 2009.  The largest source of these funds ($342.1 million) was the Title X family planning program.

Planned Parenthood's missing millions.  Planned Parenthood Federation of America's (PPFA) audits show the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but the abortion behemoth's own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.

Update:
Planned Parenthood's millions still missing.  Last June, we broke the story titled "Planned Parenthood's missing millions" that focused on $1.3 billion of government money received by Planned Parenthood from 2003 to 2008, which was left unaccounted for when the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report on the expenditures of federal funds by the abortion giant.  Our question to Planned Parenthood was:  Where are those missing millions?

GAO Report on Planned Parenthood Reveals Startling Discrepancy.  According to the GAO report, Planned Parenthood Federation of America audits show the organization spent only $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs when the abortion behemoth's annual reports show it took in $2 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.

Pelosi applauded at Planned Parenthood event.  At an event hosted by Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill, Pelosi received rock-star treatment from 300 energetic high-school and college-student volunteers clad in hot-pink T-shirts and flip flops.  The students came to Washington from around the country to lobby lawmakers on the implementation of the health-care reform bill.  Pelosi drew laughs and applause when she described getting the health-care bill through the House.

How Does a Planned Parenthood Gift Card Say Merry Christmas?  While it's obvious to most Americans that central to the Christmas season is a special birth and the family-centered celebrations which mark that event, several Planned Parenthood affiliates decided to offer "the gift of life" certificates — services to include abortions.  Oh yes, indeed, nothing says "Happy Birthday" like an abortion from Planned Parenthood.

Roe v Wade: The Beginning.  Last year Planned Parenthood of Montana hosted Sarah Weddington as the keynote speaker at their 5th annual fundraiser.  They could have chosen no one more representative of its pro-abortion philosophy than she.  Weddington is not just a hero to pro-abortionists, she is the hero.  It was she who successfully argued the Roe v. Wade case before the Supreme Court.

Margaret Sanger and the roots of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood Continues Pushing Margaret Sanger's Population Control Agenda, Here's How.  Margaret Sanger brought to Planned Parenthood three basic philosophies that still drive the organization today.  Her first philosophy was uninhibited sexual activity.  Margaret believed that everyone should be free to engage in sexual activity with whomever they want, whenever they want.  It made no difference if the individuals were married or even if they were married to someone else.  Sex was to be enjoyed always, she taught.  As a young adult, Sanger would attend discussion sessions at the home of Mabel Dodge in New York City.  Dodge explained that each week a different member of the group would lead the discussion.  She said that, whenever it was Sanger's turn to lead, the discussions were always about sex.  As Ellen Chessler noted in her book about Sanger, Woman of Valor, Dodge said that Margaret was "the first person I ever knew who was openly an ardent propagandist for the joys of the flesh."

10-Eye-Opening Quotes From Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger.  Margaret Sanger has been lauded by some as a woman of valor, but a closer look reveals that Planned Parenthood's audacious founder had some unsavory things to say about matters of race, birth control, and abortion.  An outspoken eugenicist herself, Sanger consistently promoted racist ideals with a contemptuous attitude. [...] [D]espite her extraordinarily prolific writing career, one rarely sees her quoted by Planned Parenthood leaders and apologists.

A National Portrait of Margaret Sanger.  Fifteen years ago I came across in an archive "A Plan for World Peace" issued by a prominent American just months before Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany.  The plan advocated "a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring."  For the tens of millions of Americans whose genes the author judged objectionable but who themselves judged sterilization objectionable, the plan offered "farm lands and homestead for these segregated persons where they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives."

Race and Margaret Sanger.  Anytime I write about Margaret Sanger's May 1926 speech to the women's chapter of the KKK in Silverlake, New Jersey — as I did again recently — liberals get very upset.  They accuse me of distortion, disinformation, dishonesty.  Really, my crime is raising the subject at all.  Many liberals cannot — they cannot — find it within themselves to condemn this sordid moment.

Busting Margaret Sanger.  Why is America's national museum, the Smithsonian Institution, honoring an outspoken eugenicist who advocated the forced sterilization of millions of Americans?  A racist who used abortion and birth control specifically to target the black population? [...] Sanger's bust is placed, ironically, between the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, two legitimate heroes of black Americans, a group Sanger sought, according to one of her own letters, to "exterminate."  Lionized by the left for her radical feminist rhetoric and her contribution to "women's rights" — birth control and abortion — Sanger is known nowadays for being the founder of abortion provider Planned Parenthood.  But back in the 1920s, Sanger was one of the most influential eugenicists in the United States.  The eugenics movement, now rightfully condemned, sought to improve the human race by preventing people deemed inferior from having children.

Planned Parenthood Founder Said She'd Leave Country If JFK Elected — Because He Was Catholic.  Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opposed the Catholic Church for decades because of its moral teachings and its theology in general, to the point that in 1960, when John F. Kennedy, a Catholic, ran for president, Sanger said if he were elected, she would "find another place to live."  Sanger (1879-1966), in her many writings and speeches, frequently attacked the Catholic Church, describing it as among the "arch-enemies to hinder the progress of enlightenment" and determined to destroy America's "liberties" and establish its own "rules & dominion."

Black Leaders: Remove Planned Parenthood Founder from Taxpayer-Funded Museum.  African-American leaders and pro-life activists are calling for the Smithsonian to remove the bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger from the National Portrait Gallery.  Bishop E.W. Jackson, president of STAND and Ministers Taking A Stand, said Sanger is responsible for the death of about 285,000 black babies each year.

Anti-abortion groups demand Portrait Gallery remove Planned Parenthood founder bust.  Anti-abortion activists held a rally Thursday [8/27/2015] outside the National Portrait Gallery to demand the Washington museum remove a bust of Margaret Sanger, a controversial eugenicist who founded the organizations that later became Planned Parenthood.  The modern-day abortion provider has come under scrutiny following the release of undercover videos that allegedly show employees brokering the sale of fetal tissue.  Days after widespread protests against the group, E.W. Jackson, a conservative Christian minister and Virginia lawyer, led the rally in Washington urging the removal of the Sanger bust.

Planned Parenthood Praises Women Who Support Black Genocide.  Planned Parenthood's Maggie Awards praised 16 women who emulate one of the most influential eugenicists in America, Margaret Sanger.  Margaret Sanger saw Blacks and immigrants as weeds who should be sterilized.

Why Progressives Are Wrong to Revere Margaret Sanger.  Margaret Sanger is a saint in the feminist church.  She is a charter member of the progressive hall of fame.  Liberals revere this woman who preached "race improvement" and denounced what she called "human weeds".  Hillary Clinton glows that she is "in awe of" Sanger.  She said so in 2009 upon receiving Planned Parenthood's "highest honor" that year:  its coveted Margaret Sanger Award.  Likewise effusive was Nancy Pelosi when she proudly accepted the award in 2014.  Speaking to Planned Parenthood a year earlier, President Barack Obama, hailed the organization founded by this racial eugenicist committed to creating a "race of thoroughbreds" and purging America's "race of degenerates."

Black Pastors Want Bust of Margaret Sanger Removed From Smithsonian.  On August 7, leaders of Ministers Taking a Stand, a group of Black Christian pastors headed by Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia, sent a letter to Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, asking that a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger be removed from all National Portrait Gallery exhibits. [...] The ministers' letter noted that Sanger "was a racist, elitist, and her beliefs led to massive destruction of unborn human life.  She was no hero."  An article in American Thinker on August 11 noted that this exposure of Sanger may become a political liability for Hillary Clinton, who has openly expressed admiration for the Planned Parenthood founder.  When then-Secretary of State Clinton accepted the Margaret Sanger Award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas, she told the gathered crowd: ["]I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision.  Another of my great friends, Ellen Chesler, is here, who wrote a magnificent biography of Margaret Sanger called Woman of Valor.  And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.["]

Anti-abortion activists rally at Capitol ahead of Senate panel's Planned Parenthood investigation.  Anti-abortion activists rallied at the Texas Capitol Tuesday to applaud the state's Republican leaders for investigating Planned Parenthood.  The Senate Health and Human Services committee will meet Wednesday to investigate Planned Parenthood's role in fetal tissue donation programs.  The investigation is one of three called for by state leaders following the release of undercover videos showing several Planned Parenthood national officials discussing tissue procurement methods and reimbursement fees.

Fourth Planned Parenthood video could drop at Texas Senate hearing.  Fresh off the heels of the Center for Medical Progress releasing video of a former Planned Parenthood worker discussing organ harvesting is the possibly of a fourth video.  This time it won't be on the Internet, it will be in a Texas Senate committee.  A spokesperson for Senator Charles Schwertner told The Texas Tribune state Attorney General investigators were the ones who were given the video.

Third Planned Parenthood video released: 'Huge trafficking of fetal tissues'.  A third Planned Parenthood video was released Tuesday morning that features a whistleblower who says her biomedical company would compensate Planned Parenthood clinics for fetal organs based on their condition and quality after being extracted from an abortion.  Holly O'Donnell is a former technician for California-based Stem Express, a company that contracts with abortion clinics for the tissue.  "The more valuable the tissue the more money you get, so if you can somehow procure a brain or a heart you're going to get more money than just umbilical cord," O'Donnell says in the video.  "So I guess that's incentive to try and get the hard stuff because they get more money."

Planned Parenthood Investigation Reportedly Shows Doctors Discussing How To Maximize Revenue From Sale Of Fetal Tissue.  In a new video just released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former clinical worker at StemExpress described her job of identifying pregnant women "who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest fetal body parts after their abortions."  Holly O'Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist, said she "unsuspectingly took as job as a 'procurement technician'" at the fetal tissue company StemExpress, which was allegedly the primary buyer of fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood.  She said she fainted on her first day on the job when she was asked to dissect a "freshly aborted" baby.

With its Planned Parenthood editorial, the New York Times repeats a shameful history.  [Scroll down]  Last week, the New York Times editorial board finally responded to week-old revelations of Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing the ways they "crush" human fetuses and use "less crunchy" methods to better preserve their body parts for research.  Despite the fact that a great many of the protestations were moral objections from a variety of religious groups, the New York Times failed to address these concerns at all.  Instead, it focused on the deceptive investigative techniques of those who obtained the video and, in an unintended twist of irony, lauded the use of aborted fetuses to provide researchers with "lifesaving tissue."  For the record, religious pro-life advocates like me are not panicking because we are opposed to organ donation.  We are panicking because we are opposed to taking organs from donors without their consent.

Courts Or Congress Must Act Against Planned Parenthood.  The Center for Medical Progress' graphic third video sting of Planned Parenthood, with perhaps 10 more coming, undeniably exposes a profit motive.  Will law enforcement pounce?  Three videos now that show Planned Parenthood very much wants good money for fetal body parts.  As the abortion giant hires Washington crisis communications firm SKDKnickerbocker, the spotlight now shines on what the New York Times calls a legal "gray area."

Planned Parenthood Hires Crisis Communication Firm Featuring Anita Dunn.  Planned Parenthood has hired a high-profile crisis communication firm to help it deal with fallout from a series of undercover sting videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress.  Politico reports that PP has hired SKDKnickerbocker, a firm which features former Obama communications staffer Anita Dunn as a managing director.  Dunn is perhaps best known for a speech she gave extolling the political philosophy of communist revolutionary Mao Zedong.

Shocking new Planned Parenthood sting video shows graphic footage of doctors haggling over the price of dissected fetal tissue.  The Center for Medical Progress has released a third undercover video in their ongoing campaign against Planned Parenthood.  This latest video features two doctors dissecting aborted fetal tissue while discussing the pricing of the parts with a potential buyer.  They also released an interview with a woman who used to work in a Planned Parenthood clinic for the company StemExpress and was tasked with procuring tissue from aborted fetuses.

Ted Cruz Slams 'Passionately Pro-Abortion Media' for 'Hiding' Videos.  [Scroll down]  During the event, MRC Culture asked Sen. Cruz if the the media and journalists have done enough to cover the videos.  "No, of course they're not," Cruz began.  "The mainstream media wants to do everything they can to hide these videos from the American people."  In the interview, Sen. Cruz accused the media of keeping the truth about Planned Parenthood from Americans.  "When you see a senior Planned Parenthood official say she wants to sell so many body parts of unborn children, she can buy a Lamborghini?  Those are not the values of the American people."

Planned Parenthood Tries To Silence Undercover Videos By Sending Threatening Letters To TV Stations.  "The material should not be aired," states a press release sent out to the stations.  This absurdly transparent attempt at damage control is no surprise.  The organization has been engaging in mafia-like strong-arm tactics in their all-out attack-as-defense strategy, including congressional pressure, an Obama Department of Justice investigation, and the same from the California Attorney General's office.  In short, PP is willing to do just about anything to stop people from hearing bad things about it.  Well, anything except for not selling baby parts.

Planned Parenthood Butchers Now Warning News Organizations Against Airing Undercover Videos.  They must know even worse videos are coming, if you can imagine that.

Planned Parenthood warns news media — don't air undercover sting videos.  Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota warned news outlets today that airing undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress could violate "patient privacy."  Planned Parenthood says the videos violate laws however no wrong doing by the Center for Medical Progress has been proven.  Planned Parenthood has been under fire since two videos were released showing officials discussing tissue acquisition from unborn fetuses.  The Center for Medical Progress says it has several more videos it will be releasing in the coming months.  Planned Parenthood has also found itself in hot water with the federal government.  The organization gets tax dollars to help offset operating costs.  The released videos have prompted some lawmaker to move to try and defund the organization.

3rd Planned Parenthood Sting Video Reveals Profit Strategy, Insider's Gruesome Account.  In 2012, [Holly] O'Donnell took the job at the fetal tissue company under the assumption she would be drawing blood.  As it turns out, her job was much more sinister in nature.  In fact, she fainted on her first day when she was asked to dissect a freshly aborted fetus.  For the next 6 months O'Donnell identified and harvested fetal body parts from pregnant women meeting criteria for specific orders at Planned Parenthood.  StemExpress was paid handsomely for the service.  O'Donnell said, "For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage.  The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens.  No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated."

Americans Must Look Planned Parenthood, Abortion Industry in The Eye.  Undercover investigators in recent weeks have added to the evidence that we already had that the abortion industry, and Planned Parenthood in particular, sells the body parts of the babies it kills.  As one of those who is close to this project through my partnership with Operation Rescue, and who knows the key players in this investigation, I have been asked by some reporters whether these videos represent a new strategy that replaces for the pro-life movement some of the older strategies like showing graphic pictures of aborted babies.  My answer: not at all.  On the contrary, these videos fit into a coherent strategy that I and other pro-life leaders have taught for decades and that is rooted in the history of social reform:  social injustices thrive when they are hidden; therefore, you expose them.

Hillary channels Margaret Sanger.  Let's see what Mrs. Clinton finds so laudable about the well-known Margaret Sanger: a leading voice of eugenics, defined as a belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits.  This selfsame philosophy (and its disproven pseudo-science) informed Nazi Germany's racial policies and extermination of Jews and so-called "life not fit for life."  Essentially, Mrs. Sanger's view was the creation of a (white) "master race" by determining or otherwise controlling who has children. [...] That was the underlying purpose of Planned Parenthood, started by "trailblazer" Sanger in 1916.  So why would Mrs. Clinton proudly accept such a dubious honor named for such a nefarious character (especially in light of the history, of which it is reasonable to assume she is aware) and further defend that organization today with the exposure of business practices that would have given Adolf Hitler pause?

Planned Parenthood video has clarified how sick the abortion industry is.  The tax funded abortion behemoth has a strong presence in minority neighborhoods. By some estimates, almost 80 percent of their clinics are located in them.  They would say women there need their compassionate care.  But of course, at a Planned Parenthood clinic, what you mostly find is abortion masquerading as compassion.  Margaret Sanger, the founder, would be happy with the results of her work.  She was an avowed eugenecist and once referred to blacks and immigrants as "human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning ... human beings who never should have been born."  I'm sure she would be pleased to know that the location of these clinics ensure that a high proportion of the over 300,000 abortions the company performs each year eliminate brown and black children.

Reflections on Roe: When Margaret Sanger spoke to the KKK.  As liberals excoriate Republican Congressman Steve Scalise for speaking to a group with a reported connection to David Duke, former KKK member, I'm reminded today — on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade — of a moment that liberals will never dare acknowledge:  a 1926 speech to the KKK by one of their most revered ideological darlings, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Channels Margaret Sanger.  Thanks to US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a well-known liberal and feminist, Americans are getting an inside look at what Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood's founder, probably would have embraced today — and who she would have embraced today.  From her recent comments on abortion, Justice Ginsburg would have been praised by Ms. Sanger for her comments on poor people and abortion.

Unearthed footage shows Planned Parenthood founder's true mission.  In what can only be called a gracious historical act, a newsreel archive company called British Pathé has uploaded 85,000 historic films on YouTube — in high resolution, no less. [...] One video that has caught The Daily Caller's eye is the one [in this article], in which American birth control activist Margaret Sanger (here called Margaret Slee, which was her second husband's name) sternly demands that the women of the world have "no more babies."

Pelosi Getting Award Named for Woman Who Called Children 'Human Weeds'.  Planned Parenthood on Thursday will give House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) its Margaret Sanger Award, named for a woman who advocated eugenics and who described some children as "human weeds," while arguing that to grow a "beautiful garden of children," you "have got to fight weeds."  In that same speech from 1925, Sanger explained that parenthood should be legal only under certain conditions:  a minimum age for parents of 23 years, a "space out between births," "economic circumstances adequate," and "spiritual harmony between parents."

Pelosi Deserves Her Planned Parenthood Award.  It's true that Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Award — almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has.  If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting.

Obama's Racial Eugenics Award?  Margaret Sanger longed for a more enlightened time when birth control would be (as she put it) "part of the regular welfare service of the government." [...] Sanger could not have known it, but she was speaking of Barack Obama's America, where birth control is being thrust upon us as a basic "human right" and form of "health care" with no obstacles in its way.  In fact, it's even easier than Sanger could have imagined: Not only do contemporary progressives want no obstacles, but Obama wants all Americans to forcibly pay for birth control.  He is even forcing the religious to do so via his HHS mandate.  He and his progressive cohorts are rolling right over any "legal restrictions" or "religious condemnation."  If you as a religious believer disagree, they will see you in court.  You will be penalized and demonized.  Under Obama, we have arrived at Sanger's new world, where birth control is a regular service of the federal government.

Steinem on Medal of Freedom Award: It Will Be 'Honoring the Work of Margaret Sanger'.  Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Monday, feminist Gloria Steinem said receiving the Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama would be "honoring the work of Margaret Sanger."  "I hope this is retroactive in honoring the work of Margaret Sanger," said Steinem about the woman who founded what would become Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the largest abortion provider in the United States.

Deliver Us From Evil: Black Professor Spews Hate.  Americans abort 4,000 babies a day, of which a disproportionately high number are black.  Planned Parenthood was founded by racist Margaret Sanger to fix "the negro problem."  "We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," wrote Sanger.  Liberal blacks like Professor Tillet and Democrat so-called advocates for black empowerment ignore the blatant racism of Planned Parenthood.

First Black President Makes Racist White Woman's Dream Come True.  One of [Margaret] Sanger's most audacious initiatives began in 1939.  A memorandum, "Suggestions for Negro Project," made its way to her desk from Dr. Clarence Gamble, the director of the Birth Control Federation of the South.  Sanger made it clear she did not want her racist motivations to be exposed, so she worked to enlist black preachers to carry the birth control message into Southern black communities.  The marketing plan worked.  By 1947, black leaders throughout the country gave their blessing to Planned Parenthood.

The Uncanny Union of Kermit and Miss Maggie.  [P]erhaps the public should learn to connect the dots between the wholesale slaughter of black babies and the abortion industry's uncomfortable racial connection with eugenics — beginning with the Malthusian vision of Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger.

Why They Won't Talk About Kermit Gosnell.  [Mara] Hvistendahl's plaint recalled the incredible work of Edwin Black, most notably his book War Against the Weak, which detailed the role American eugenics played in the monstrous ethnic cleansing in Europe in the 20th century culminating in the Holocaust.  One of the most important personalities in this terrible saga was the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood.

The Left's Genocide of Minorities.  Many are aware that Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortion in the U.S., had eugenic beginnings.  Founder Margaret Sanger was influenced by Malthusian eugenics, and noted eugenicists were on the PP board, including Alan Guttmacher, vice president of the American Eugenics Society.  Sanger's lover and mentor, Havelock Ellis, was a follower of Francis Galton, a leader in eugenics.  One of Sanger's first clinics opened in Harlem in 1929.  To give it legitimacy, she invited prominent black ministers, social workers, and journalists to be on the advisory council.  In 1939 she started the "Negro Project," headed by Clarence Gamble of Procter & Gamble.

On Margaret Sanger, the Soviets, and Democrats:  "[W]e could well take example from Russia," advised Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, "where birth control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government."  Sanger, racial-eugenicist who spoke to a 1926 KKK rally, whose work included a "Negro Project," who wished to rid America of "human weeds" and "morons" and "imbeciles," and who wanted birth control for "race improvement," had just returned from a pilgrimage to Stalin's Russia.  Like many progressives (click here for John Dewey's experiences), she went there to soak in the alleged triumphs of the communist motherland, marveling at Lenin's and Stalin's advancements for women.

History of America's Racist Left:  Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger spoke at a 1926 Ku Klux Klan rally, used the "n" word in reference to blacks, and deemed Aboriginal Australians "the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development." … Despite all this and more, a friendly historian recently judged, "Sanger was no racist." … To advocate certain progressive ideas is, for fellow progressives, evidence of innocence.

Dr. King, Roe v. Wade and Margaret Sanger:  Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger formed the organization to implement the eugenic ideology that prevailed in the early 20th century.  The eugenicists with whom she aligned herself espoused belief, as Sanger put it, in the "supremacy" and "purity" of certain races of people, notably the Aryan race.  They believed the "fit" should be encouraged to reproduce, while the "unfit" should constrain their numbers.  The "unfit" were the poor, racial minorities and certain groups of immigrants, and the physically and mentally handicapped.  They sought to accomplish this through sterilization, birth control and, eventually, abortion.

Liberals Lie, Children Die.  It is horrific enough that the purpose in the original founding of Planned Parenthood was to originally wipe out the future generations of black children.  To understand the depth of the racism Margaret Sanger practiced and believed personally is nauseating.  She detailed much of it for posterity in her own writings.

A Dark Past.  Margaret Sanger, whose American Birth Control League became Planned Parenthood, was the founding mother of the birth-control movement.  She is today considered a liberal saint, a founder of modern feminism, and one of the leading lights of the Progressive pantheon.  Gloria Feldt of Planned Parenthood proclaims, "I stand by Margaret Sanger's side," leading "the organization that carries on Sanger's legacy."

Hillary in 'inter-generational partnership' with eugenicist Sanger.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted an award from Planned Parenthood named after the pro-abortion group's founder, who once referred to blacks as "human weeds."  Secretary of State Clinton was presented on Friday evening [3/24/2009] with the Margaret Sanger Award at a Planned Parenthood event in Houston.  The award, says Planned Parenthood, is presented annually to recognize "leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement."

Singing Sanger's Praises, Whistling Past the Graveyard.  "We want fewer and better children ... and we cannot make the social life and the world-peace we are determined to make, with the ill-bred, ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens that you inflict on us."  That ghastly pro-eugenics message appeared in the introduction to Margaret Sanger's 1922 book, "The Pivot of Civilization."  In a little-noticed incident, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently announced that she is "really in awe" of Sanger.

Mrs. Clinton Can't Defend Patron Saint of Planned Parenthood.  Mrs. Sanger was certainly a birth control pioneer.  But when you examine the totality of Sanger's views, you'd think modern feminists would blanche — at least a little.  Sanger was a most thoroughgoing racist.  "Eugenics," she wrote, "is the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political, and social problems."

What were Notre Dame officials thinking?  One of those diehard racists and eugenicists of Scopes' time was Margaret Sanger.  Yes, the founder of Planned Parenthood was a eugenicist who, according to author Edwin Black in "War Against The Weak," "advocated for mass sterilization of so-called defectives (and) mass incarceration of the unfit."  Sanger also "vigorously opposed charitable efforts to uplift the downtrodden and deprived, and argued extensively that it was better that the cold and hungry be left without help, so that the eugenically superior strains could multiply without competition from 'the unfit.'  She repeatedly referred to the lower classes and the unfit as 'human waste' not worthy of assistance, and proudly quoted the extreme eugenic view that human 'weeds' should be exterminated."

Obama, Ginsburg, and the Ghost of Margaret Sanger:  [Scroll down]  In Sanger's mind, there was never a doubt that abortion — albeit an abhorrent procedure — should not only be recognized as the inalienable right of every woman, but that it could also serve as a highly effective tool for fashioning a healthier and more productive society.  In terms of methodology, such a goal could be achieved by systematically filtering out the varied ethnic and socio-economic people groups deemed as offering no discernible benefit to the rest of the general population.

Time for a Separation of Science and State.  Arguably, scientific fact changes more rapidly than religious dogma.  What was undeniable truth one day might be discovered to be quackery the next.  The most glaring example of this in the 20th century is the science of eugenics.

Margaret Sanger's shop now open in East Knox.  This call to pre-emptively rid America of the diseased and maladjusted, according to the March 31, 1941, issue of Time magazine, was sponsored by the National Committee of Planned Parenthood on behalf of Margaret Sanger's Birth Control Federation of America.  Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood in 1916, was a proponent of eugenics, the belief that humankind would benefit if the "unfit" didn't reproduce while the "fit" procreated profusely.

Quotes From Margaret Sanger — Founder of Planned Parenthood.  [For example,] "We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal.  We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."




Abortion as an attempt to exterminate black Americans

Nick Cannon:  Planned Parenthood Founded To 'Exterminate' Black People.  Singer and TV personality Nick Cannon doubled down on his criticism of Planned Parenthood, saying the abortion provider was designed to "exterminate" black people.  "When you talked about Margaret Sanger, all the people who follow eugenics.  It was all about cleansing," the America's Got Talent host said of Planned Parenthood's founder in a recent interview with DJ Vlad.

People Who Hate Humanity.  While liberals talk a lot about racism they ignore the far greater threat of their own Anti-Human Movement (AHM). [...] The AHM's public solution for world poverty is preventing or killing unborn brown babies.  That's why a disproportionate amount of aid to Africa, for example, is for "family planning" as opposed to antibiotics.  But their real solution includes killing brown children.  Melinda Gates has stated that after a few drinks members of the AHM have questioned whether providing vaccines for brown people in Africa is a good thing, since the world is suffering from too many people.

Nick Cannon:  Planned Parenthood Is Committing A 'Real Genocide' Against Black Americans.  In an interview with "The Breakfast Club," a radio show in New York City, rapper Nick Cannon said Planned Parenthood is committing a genocide against black Americans.  "Hillary was sneaking and cheating," Cannon said.  "Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff.  That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it's real genocide, and it's been like that for years.  This system is not built for us."

Black Pastors:  If Black Lives Matter You Can't Vote for Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton.  Two leading African-American pro-life pastors say black voters should rule out voting for pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  Rev. Dr. Johnny Hunter says if black lives really matter then black voters will not vote for Hillary Clinton on the basis of her staunch support for unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy paid for at taxpayer expense.  He says Roe vs. Wade, which Clinton strongly supports and wants to keep in place for decades more, has resulted in the abortions of 20 million African American babies.  "Blacks are clearly targeted by this practice," Hunter says of abortion.

Black lives don't matter when Planned Parenthood is involved.  Most do not realize that Planned Parenthood was the outgrowth of Margaret Sanger's attempt to cleanse the American population of undesirables, especially blacks, whom she considered incapable of the type of "elevated" behavior of educated whites.  But, Margaret wanted to rid society of all manner of undesirables, not just blacks.  To her, the mentally disabled, the weak, the unmanageable hordes must also be cleansed.  This is why Planned Parenthood started in the inner cities, where the poor, disabled and minorities were most often encountered.  Yet, Hillary Clinton is still proud to accept the Margaret Sanger Award.  And, she accuses Trump of being a racist.

NFL Star Ben Watson:  Planned Parenthood Was Created to "Exterminate Blacks" and "It's Working".  Christian NFL player Ben Watson does not hesitate to call out Planned Parenthood's targeting of minority women and their babies for abortions.  In a recent interview with Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center in San Diego, the Baltimore Ravens player talked about the racial divide in America and how it factors into the abortion issue.

NFL Player:  Planned Parenthood Was Created To Exterminate Black People.  Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson made it very clear that he is anti-Planned Parenthood during an interview with Turning Point Friends.  Watson was asked about race and abortion, and he gave an incredibly blunt answer.

Pastor: Abortion Kills Three Times More Black Lives as Heart Disease, Cancer and Stroke.  Pastor Walter B. Hoye II wants to put into perspective the tragically high number of abortion deaths in the Black American community.  Abortion is a problem among every racial group, but it is particularly troubling in the Black community in America.  Hoye, president of Issues4Life Foundation, is a leading African American figure in the pro-life movement who works to end abortion through education and outreach, especially in the Black community.  Black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups.  According to census data, African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population but have about 30 percent of the abortions.  The problem is disturbingly evident in New York City, where state data shows more black babies are aborted than are born.

Blacks Killed by Abortion Since 1990 = 4.4 Million; 11% of U.S. Black Population.  The available data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention show that the number of black Americans killed by abortion over the 22 years between 1990 and 2011 was 4.4 million, which is 11% of the U.S. black population, a figure that likely will not get much attention this February, Black History Month.

Colorblind America: A Malignant Fallacy.  [Scroll down]  Race also matters with abortion rates.  When black people are registering around 40% of the country's abortions and only around 12% of the population, there is an undeniable problem that colorblindness doesn't help to fix — especially when you consider Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's dream of wiping out black people and that a vast majority of Planned Parenthoods are — rather fortuitously — located in black neighborhoods.

Planned Parenthood's 'Vital' Work Means Killing Black Babies.  African-Americans make up 13.2 percent of the U.S. population, yet they account for 30 percent of all abortions.  A closer look at Planned Parenthood clinic locations reveals that the abortion provider tends to cluster its offices in low-income zip codes or areas that have a high minority population.  About 50 percent of Planned Parenthood's patients are enrolled in Medicaid.  To put that in context, about 1 in 5 people are enrolled in Medicaid nationwide, which means that most of the people who visit Planned Parenthood are these 20 percent who rely on federal funds to pay for their health care.  The disproportionate number of low-income patients and the high number of black abortions make it clear that Planned Parenthood deliberately targets for abortion the children of low-income, minority women.

Congressional Black Caucus Members Praise Planned Parenthood on the Hill.  At a tragically ironic press conference Monday afternoon [9/28/2015] on Capitol Hill, the Congressional Black Caucus praised the work of Planned Parenthood.  Joined by former Planned Parenthood patients, Reps. Gwen Moore (D-WI), Alma Adams (D-NC) and Donna Edwards (D-MD) defended the organization as vital to women's health.  Not of interest during their conversation, was the fact that Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger was a racist, nor the Center for Medical Progress investigation that has shocked Americans with its disturbing footage of employees joking about the sale of fetal body parts.  Nope, these concerns were of no consequence.  Rep. Adams seemed quite positive that the GOP attempt to defund Planned Parenthood was based off of a misogynistic agenda.

The Biggest Idiots in Politics: The #Blacklivesmatter Protesters.  [F]irst of all, despite the name, the group doesn't care about most #blacklives.  On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted PER DAY in the United States.  Many of those innocents are slaughtered via Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by a woman who wanted to use abortion to help control the population of black Americans because she believed they were inferior.  The #blacklivesmatter protesters don't care about those black lives.

Carson: Planned Parenthood Was Founded To Abort Black Babies.  [Dr. Ben] Carson isn't the first black man to argue that the true aim of Sanger's organization was to control the black population.  Last week, a group of eight black ministers penned a letter calling for the removal of all forms of Sanger's likeness from "all National Portrait Gallery exhibits."  "Ms. Sanger may have been a lot of things, but a 'champion of justice' she definitely was not," the ministers wrote.

Unrepentant Baby Killers of the Reactionary Left.  [1926] was the year that the founder of Planned Parenthood stopped by the women's branch of the KKK. This was the 1920s Klan which billed itself as a "progressive" organization invested in creating a "closer relationship between capital and labor".  An arm of the Democratic Party, some members of the KKK also belonged to the Socialist Party, much as Margaret Sanger, the speaker at the women's Klan branch had.  The Klan's political alliances with the Socialist Party in Oregon and Wisconsin had moved it closer to the left.  The KKK platform echoed that of the first Socialist Congressman Victor L. Berger who firmly stated, "If we are ever to have socialism in America and Canada, we must keep them white man's countries."

Ohio Dem Rep Patmon: Black Lives Matter 'Should Be In Front of Planned Parenthood'.  Ohio State Representative Bill Patmon (D) declared Black Lives Matter protesters "skipped one place, they should be in front of Planned Parenthood" at a rally at the Ohio Statehouse on Tuesday [7/28/2015].  In the speech, video of which was first posted to Dix News' and the Youngstown Vindicator's Statehouse Bureau Chief Marc Kovac's Capital Blog, Patmon states that his mother would have been a "prime candidate" for an abortion, but chose not to have one.

Abortionism and the Banality of Evil.  Black and Hispanic women in America are much more likely to have abortions than white women.  The racism of abortion is matched by the gender bias of abortions around the world.  So unborn baby girls are much more likely in nations like India and China to be killed in the womb than baby boys in those countries.  In some lands, newborn girls are simply shunted aside after birth to die of neglect.  The Nazis justified this selective murder by defining those they killed as "life unworthy of life."  It is not surprising, then, that the attitude of Abortionism toward inferior classes of humanity looked so much like the racial theories of Nazism.

For Planned Parenthood Black Livers Matter.  If you have ever witnessed one of those "spontaneous" pro-abortion demonstrations held in Washington whenever Congress contemplates curtailing taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, you may have noticed that there was something missing — African-American demonstrators.  This is odd, considering that black women are far more likely to have abortions than are their Caucasian counterparts.  And, examined in light of the now infamous video of a white Planned Parenthood official discussing how to crush a baby without damaging marketable livers and other organs, it is particularly ominous.  Why?  Because the terminated baby will probably have been black, and that is no coincidence

Abortion Killed 19 Times as Many Blacks as Murder.  For every black murder victim in 2011 there were 19 blacks killed by abortion, according to data from the FBI and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  2011 is the latest year for which the data is available.

Do Black Lives Really Matter to Liberals?  Surprisingly, the same liberals who say they are concerned about the tiny percentage of blacks killed by police not only don't care about the mass elimination of blacks in the womb, but they in fact work constantly to protect those who slaughter blacks.  Eighty percent of abortion facilities are in minority neighborhoods, and blacks are three times as likely to kill their unborn child as whites are.  If black lives mattered to liberals, they'd be up in arms over this racist effort by organizations like Planned Parenthood.  Instead, the same folks who are ignoring the facts of the Ferguson case and imputing nonexistent racism to the Garner case tend to be strong and proud supporters of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations that target blacks.

NYC: 78% of Abortions Were Black and Hispanic Babies.  The Abortion Surveillance report published by the CDC, for which the latest abortion numbers are for 2011, show there were 76,251 abortions in New York City that year.  For that total, 9,550 abortions were of white babies, which is 12.5% of the total; 35,188 babies were black (46.1% of total); 23,959 were Hispanic (31.4%); and another 7,554 "other" abortions, 9.9%, which includes Asians and Native Americans, as well as those babies not reported by race.  Abortions of black and Hispanic babies combined totaled 59,147 — that is 77.56% of the total abortions in NYC.

Black Genocide And The Black Leaders Who Support It.  This weekend, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is proudly hosting an event with Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill. BET Networks is sponsoring the issue forum on "reproductive freedom".  The nation's largest abortion chain, never missing an opportunity to target the black community, is addressing how the Hobby Lobby decision will impact — you got it — black women.  The Hobby Lobby decision does nothing to reduce anyone's access to birth control.  The Supreme Court decision ruled that a closely held corporation cannot be forced to pay for an employee's abortifacients, including Plan B, Ella, and hormonal and copper IUDs.  The lawsuit never opposed the other 16 forms of contraception, and the ruling doesn't touch those.  But this weekend's conference isn't about birth control, but spin control with a racial twist.

Obama program aims to reduce 'births' among blacks, Latinos.  President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of "births" — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing "births" as one of the top goals of Obama's "Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative."  The language on the CDC's website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and "births" among minorities.

Progressive Insurance.  No one asks Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to step down from the Supreme Court; but in a quite frightening remark, she quipped that she was surprised about the uproar over abortion:  "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."  Frankly, that seemed a savage thing to say, especially given the inordinate percentages of abortions among minorities and the poor.

KKK Lynched 3,446 Blacks in 86 Years — Abortion Claims That Many Black Babies in 'Less Than Four Days'.  Over 86 years, the Ku Klux Klan lynched 3,446 blacks — a figure matched in less than four days if tallying the number of black babies who are aborted.  Walter Hoye, founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, shared those statistics at a press conference on Tuesday where black clergy and other leaders gathered in response to the guilty verdict in the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three newborn babies.

Why Was Kermit Gosnell's Abortion Clinic Given A Pass By Oversight Agencies?  [Scroll down]  You see, I know from personal experience that the state has not only the ability but the resources to badger medical practices unceasingly, over minutiae.  The reason they closed their eyes to Gosnell's horrors was the color of the babies he was murdering.  Abortion is not only lucrative and a necessity to a culture dedicated to sexual liberation, but it is also used by racists to eliminate children of color.  The holocaust of abortion disproportionately affects black and Hispanic women and children.  A simple glance at New York City's abortion rates, for example, show that 60 percent of black babies do not make it past the womb, nearly 20 percent higher than the rate for white babies.  That is systematic population reduction.

Planned Parenthood Targets Black Women.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, blacks accounted for 35.4 percent of abortions performed in 2009, despite representing, according to the 2010 census, just 13.6 percent of the US population.  Let's not be deluded that this is an accident.

Pro-lifers call abortion doctor a murderous racist.  Kermit Gosnell, the former Philadelphia abortion doctor on trial for allegedly killing seven viable babies and a woman who died after a botched abortion, was slammed by pro-life activists Thursday[4/4/2013] as a racist against his own black community, and as its "angel of death" for becoming rich from aborting primarily black babies.

Black anti-abortion groups call Gosnell "racist of the worst kind".  The leaders of two black anti-abortion groups today [4/4/2013] denounced West Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell as a "racist of the worst kind" and a "butcher who preyed on the women and girls of his own race."

More about "Doctor" Kermit Gosnell.

Targeting the Black Community.  The deliberate targeting of the black community by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry has resulted in a kind of bloodletting that is unprecedented to any known human attack in modern history.  Even Hitler was unable to wreak the level of havoc that has occurred since the Supreme Court legalized the taking of innocent life in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

The Dictator in the Black Iron Man Suit.  [Scroll down]  To all you blacks who think Obama is one of you:  you are wrong.  Obama is not black.  Any loyalty he has to fellow people of color is trumped by his devout loyalty to his religion of liberalism.  For example:  liberalism says the planet / the environment is better off with fewer people.  This is why Obama supports abortion despite the genocide of blacks via abortion.  Blacks are being aborted at a faster rate than any other group.  Would a true black homey support abortion?

After 96 Years, Abortion Giant Planned Parenthood Still Targeting Minorities.  Recent research from Protecting Black Life, a project of Life Issues Institute, found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics are located in or within walking distance of black and Hispanic communities.  "Minority communities are the number one targets of Planned Parenthood," said the Rev. Arnold Culbreath, director of Protecting Black Life.  "It's no wonder abortion remains the leading cause of death among African-Americans, higher than all other causes combined.  Getting this information to as many people as possible is not only critical, it's a matter of life and death for countless babies and oft times even their mothers."

Barack Obama Campaign Funded by Planned Parenthood Blood Money.  Back in 2008 Obama was established as not only a pro-abortion candidate, but one that believes in infanticide as evidenced by his lack of support of an anti-infanticide bill in Illinois.  The bill, if it had become law, would have outlawed the killing of babies that survive abortion.  As a black candidate, and one very popular with the black community, it seemed like a contradiction, because Planned Parenthood was created by Margaret Sanger with the intent of using the program to wipe out blacks, which she considered to be an inferior race.  Abortion in America was originally promoted as a tool to kill minorities before they could be born.  For pro-life groups, the very thought of killing any child in the womb is murder, and by many is considered to be America's genocide.

Michael Steele: Planned Parenthood worked 'to eliminate and limit' African-Americans.  On Laura Ingraham's Monday [5/21/2012] radio show, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele offered his views on the NAACP's shift to the left on so-called social issues on the heels of its decision to endorse same-sex marriage.  Steele said that the organization's partnership with Planned Parenthood in particular should to be brought to light.  He said Planned Parenthood historically worked to "eliminate and limit the number of African-Americans and other minorities in this country."

No-Labels Movement: Another Liberal Trick.  [Scroll down]  Obama, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP support Planned Parenthood, whose founder boldly proclaimed her mission to be the extermination of the Negro.  Why would these blacks support Planned Parenthood?  Answer:  they are liberals first and foremost, black and Christian second and third.

'To Stop the Multiplication of the Unfit'.  If you aren't creeped out by the No Birth Control Left Behind rhetoric of the White House and Planned Parenthood, you aren't listening closely enough. ... When a bunch of wealthy white women and elite Washington bureaucrats defend the trampling of religious liberties in the name of "increased access" to "reproductive services" for "poor" women, the ghost of Margaret Sanger is cackling.

CDC: Black abortion rate triple U.S. average.  Adjusted for population, the abortion rate among black women is roughly triple the national average.  Citing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics, Cybercast News Service reported that African-Americans account for 36.5% of the nation's abortions while making up 12.6% of nation's population.

Black tea partier calls Democrats the 'party of the KKK'.  Conservative activist Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani, founder and chairman of Raging Elephants, told the Daily Caller that abortion in the United States amounts to "genocide ... of African American babies."  And he sent liberals on MSNBC into fits of horror Wednesday [10/26/2011] after he spoke to a Houston tea party rally and called Democrats "racists" and "the party of the Ku Klux Klan."  "If anybody is racist it is the Democratic Party," he said.  "They're the racists, the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the party of Jim Crow, the party of Bull Conner, the party of segregation."  "They are the racists, not us.  We're their friends, we're the emancipators, we're the liberators, we're the ones who believe in freedom."

When Will Black America Wake Up and Stop the Carnage?  In an alternate reality, 54 million blacks would be alive in America today.  When adjusted for abortion, the number is 39 million.  The National Black Prolife Coalition says an average of 1,000 black babies are aborted every day.  Nationally, nearly one in three black pregnancies ends in abortion each year.  In New York City in 2009, 47%, or 40,798, of the city's 87,273 abortions were performed on black women.

The Death Penalty Does Not Deter Liberals.  Liberals are compassionate people.  That's why they support abortion and oppose the death penalty.  They figure it's best to kill a majority of black children before they are born.  If they did not, a small minority of those black children would later commit homicide.  Liberals are not just compassionate people.  They're logical, too.

Like Voting for Hitler!  Though Hispanics made up 12.5% of the U.S. population Hispanic women accounted for 25% of all U.S. abortions in 2008-10.  San Antonio boasts a large Hispanic population and I imagine that the Planned Parenthood killing clinics there are extremely busy.  Almost all Democrats support the right to abortion and for the continued funding of Planned Parenthood Clinics.  To me, Blacks and Hispanics who vote for pro abortion Democrats are like "Jews voting for Hitler!"

Herman Cain: 'It's Not Planned Parenthood — No, It's Planned Genocide'.  Likely Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain supports ending all federal funding to Planned Parenthood, an abortion business that he said was founded to target African Americans and is continuing that mission.  "Here's why I support de-funding Planned Parenthood, because you don't hear a lot of people talking about this, when Margaret Sanger — check my history — started Planned Parenthood, the objective was to put these centers in primarily black communities so they could help kill black babies before they came into the world," Cain told CNSNews.com on Tuesday [3/15/2011] when speaking at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

Cain: Planned Parenthood's mission is 'planned genocide' of black babies.  Using unusually harsh words, a potential presidential candidate echoed some previous comments:  claiming that Planned Parenthood's original mission was to "help kill black babies before they came into the world."  Herman Cain went on to say that the sexual and reproductive health care provider is carrying out its mission of "planned genocide."  In response, the group said that Cain is using "inflammatory and divisive language based on race to achieve extreme political goals" of ending legal abortion.

Free-Speech NYC.  A black clergyman in Texas, the Rev. Stephen Broden, and his organization Life Always wanted to broadcast during Black History Month a potent protest against abortion in a location where millions disagree with his position.  Broden believes "the staggering number of abortions within the African-American community is threatening the sustainability of the African-American race in the United States."

Sharpton and Obama Ignore Planned Parenthood's Racist Underbelly.  Reverend Al Sharpton called a press conference this past week to denounce an anti-abortion billboard overlooking New York City's Soho district.  The sign depicting a young black girl read "The Most Dangerous Place for an African-American is in the Womb." ... Sharpton's charge of racial profiling prompted Lifealways to remove the sign before the Friday press conference.  The fact that for every 1000 African-American births there are 1,489 aborted black babies in New York City did not convince the Reverend that something is going on in his community besides racism.

Time to Defund the Destruction of Human Life.  According to the Daily Caller, the number of prenatal clients Planned Parenthood served was less than 0.09 percent of the total services it provided in 2008.  Pregnant women seeking help from Planned Parenthood were 27 times more likely to receive an abortion than to receive prenatal care or be referred for adoption.  Appalling still, 70% of these abortion factories are concentrated in minority neighborhoods.  Black childbearing women make up just 3% of the population but a heartbreaking 30% of abortions.  Hispanic women make up another 25%.  In 1971, well-known eugenicist Frederick Osborn proclaimed, "Birth control and abortion are proving to be the great eugenics advances of our time."

Aborting the Race Card.  If his past roles in shameful and deadly incidents haven't already fully exposed the Rev. Al Sharpton as a charlatan of a self-proclaimed civil-rights leader, his recent performance on Sean Hannity's television show should do it.  Sharpton refused to engage former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum on the issue of the eugenics history of abortion activism in the United States, and on the continuing racial disparity in the number of abortions performed.

The NAACP and Abortion Politics.  Why would a bill that criminalizes abortion motivated by race not have the support of the NAACP?  Or, even more perplexing, why would the NAACP endorse such a bill and then rescind its endorsement?  This is exactly what just happened in Georgia.

Abortion and the Black Community:  Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.  According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 3 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.  On average, 1,452 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

A catastrophe largely self-imposed.  In this past election, 95 percent of blacks voted for Barack Obama out of ethnic pride and for the promise of change.  I dare say, none — out of ignorance — who voted for Mr. Obama ever expected his plan would not only continue the present annihilation, but escalate also it! ... Every day, 1,786 black children are killed in the womb of their mothers.  According to the research arm of Planned Parenthood, 52 percent of all black pregnancies end in abortion.  Black women now lead the nation in very early pre-term births and miscarriages due to the damaging and weakening of the reproductive system as a result of multiple abortions.

The Abortionist's Eyes Are On Us.  Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie.  Where racism now hides its face in public, abortion is accomplishing the goals of which racism only once dreamed.  Together, abortionists are destroying humanity at large and the black community in particular.  Abortion has taken a gruesome toll on the black community, killing more than AIDS and crime combined.  Some 14 million black babies have been aborted since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in all stages in all 50 states.  That's equal to one-third of the number of blacks living today.

What Would MLK Do?  Would MLK endorse abortion rights?  Perhaps if Barack Obama took the opportunity to hear Alveda King, MLK's niece, speak on the genocide that abortion has inflicted on the black community, he might have a change of heart; but as it stands now, Obama has embraced the most radical pro-abortion views of any post-Roe presidential candidate.  Considering Obama's claim to share King's Christian faith, this seems quite extraordinary.  As Alveda King passionately explains, the crime of abortion is quite akin to slavery:  "How can the 'Dream' survive if we murder our children?

Your Tax Money At Work:  Funding Abortions.  [The black] community, which aborts babies at three times the percentage of our population, must be awakened to the fact that Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood's founder, desired to exterminate blacks because she viewed them as an inferior race.  One such statement said, "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population."  As a result the black community is disproportionately affected by the posture, placement, and philosophy of this organization.  To add insult to injury, Planned Parenthood receives $305 million a year of federal funding.

Abortion:  Black Genocide.  "After reading up on its history, I discovered that the idea of legal abortion was first popularized by a white woman, Margaret Sanger, who was the founder of the National Birth Control League, which is now known as Planned Parenthood.  Margaret Sanger called for the sterilization of 'genetically inferior races'."

Abortion Industry Decimating Black Community:  Here in the U.S. the number of black abortions is twice the rate of the rest of society.  Some black leaders say those aborted babies are part of a destructive abortion industry that targets blacks more than any other group.

Black Pastor Compares Abortion to Slavery,  citing "racist" statements from the founder of Planned Parenthood.  An estimated 1,452 African-American children are killed each day by the act of abortion.  Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched in the United States — a number surpassed in less than three days by abortion.

Abortion is Causing "Black Genocide," Activists Say.  During America's commemoration of Black History Month, some pro-life activists are charging that legalized abortion has led to a "black genocide" of more than 14 million unborn African-American babies.  They condemn, in particular, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America…

Black Leadership's Misplaced Priorities:  If you had not noticed the most heralded and prestigious African-American organization in America within the space of 3 months endorsed the most destructive and decimating practices in the Black community.  The NAACP put there stamp of approval on the practice of infant killing and marriages between men with men and women with women.  Abortion and same sex marriage.

Planned Parenthood:  A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing?  Thirteen months ago, UCLA student Lila Rose appeared on the O'Reilly Factor stating the some Planned Parenthood centers attempt to hide child abuse or statutory rape by encouraging underage mothers to falsify their ages in order to receive an abortion.  Child abuse is not a reproductive freedom issue; it is an increasing serious problem in the nation today.  Should those who have been entrusted with public funds be allowed to empower sexual predators to hide their crimes?

Pastors Accuse Planned Parenthood for 'Genocide' on Blacks.  The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has perpetuated a "genocide on the black community," says a group of African-American pastors who claimed Thursday [4/24/2008] the birth control and abortion provider has had a racist agenda since its beginnings in 1921.  Holding a brief vigil and press conference in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington, D.C., the group of pastors and activists said they were incensed by the results of recent "undercover" inquiries into several Planned Parenthood clinics across the country.

Abortion:  The Racist's Most Devastating Weapon:  Planned Parenthood, founded by racist/eugenicist Margaret Sanger, promotes abortion relentlessly among Blacks.  More than 80 percent of Planned Parenthood's sixty efficient abortion mills are located in areas generally classified as "inner city."  These areas possess a very large proportion of minorities:  Usually more than fifty percent.  In fact, the number of abortion clinics in a large city generally correlates closely to the size of that town's minority population.  There are at least fifty percent more abortion clinics per capita in cities that have large minority populations, compared to those cities with smaller minority populations.

Planned Parenthood Agreed to Accept Race-Motivated Donations:  Planned Parenthood of Central Ohio confirmed to Cybercast News Service that the telephone conversation with a presumed donor occurred in mid-summer 2007, adding that it was not the policy of Planned Parenthood to accept donations Specifically to underwrite abortions among minority women.

The Big Lie:  In the late 1930s, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, came up with the idea for the infamous "Negro Project."  Sanger, despite the rosy and saint-like portrait the organization presents of her, was a frank racist.  Judging by her public statements and private letters, the woman thought that blacks — southern blacks in particular — were simple, child-like brutes whose fertility needed managing the same way a farmer needs to tend to his breeding stock of sheep or cows.

The Negro Project:  Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans.  The disproportionately high number of abortions in the black community is no accident.  Many Americans — black and white — are unaware of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's Negro Project.  Sanger created this program in 1939, after the organization changed its name from the American Birth Control League to the Birth Control Federation of America.  The aim of the program was to restrict — many believe exterminate — the black population.

Marching for life and against the "Negro Project".  Black women are three times as likely to have abortions as their white counterparts.  Blacks and Hispanics are about 25 percent of the population, yet they account for 57 percent of all abortions.

Berkeley preacher calls for blacks to fight abortion.  Saying they are faced with a civil rights crisis that demands immediate attention, African American anti-abortion advocates will hold three events in the Bay Area later this month in an aggressive push to combat the high number of abortions among black women.  "The abortion issue is huge.  It is the Darfur of America," and it's time to educate the public about it, said Walter Hoye, a Berkeley preacher who founded the Issues4Life Foundation, a recently formed Union City-based organization intent on drafting more African Americans into the fight against abortion.

Black Genocide dot org:  The purpose of this website is to reveal the disproportionate number of black babies exterminated by the abortion industry in America.  Although black women constitute only 6% of the population, they comprise 36% of the abortion industry's clientele.  The leading abortion providers have chosen to exploit blacks by locating 94% of their abortuaries in urban neighborhoods with high black populations.  This high rate of abortion has decimated the black family and destroyed black neighborhoods to the detriment of society at large.

Obama's Abortion Stance Hurts Blacks, Say Pro-Life Experts.  Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) may be riding what seems to be a perfect wave toward the Democratic presidential nomination, but some African-Americans say his pro-abortion stance make him a danger to the black community.  "Between 1882 and 1962, 3,446 blacks were lynched," says Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr. on his Web site, blackgenocide.org.  "That number is surpassed in less than three days by abortion."  More than 1,400 African-American children are aborted each day in the United States, said Childress.

Davis murder:  Product of Roe v. Wade mentality?  The tragic discovery of the body of Ohio mother Jessie Davis in a national park in Summit County, Ohio, last weekend has added to the growing list of "hundreds, maybe thousands of pregnant women who have been brutally killed prior to giving birth," according to the president of the National Black Pro-Life Union.  Day Gardner says it also represents a culture where there's little regard for human life.

Abortion Causes 'Hopelessness' in Black Communities, King Says.  A recent Pew Research poll reported high levels of 'hopelessness' in African-American communities across the United States, a characteristic pro-life activists are linking to high abortion rates among black women.

Justice Ginsburg on Roe v. Wade:  In an interview to be published in Sunday's [7/12/2009] New York Times Magazine, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion was predicated on the Supreme Court majority's desire to diminish "populations that we don't want to have too many of."

What did Ruth Bader Ginsburg mean when she linked abortion and eugenics?  The mainstream media have been incredibly slow to pick up on a creepy comment by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a New York Times interview published today but flagged last week.  In it, Ginsburg talks about on Roe v Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalised abortion.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a question of eugenics.  Here's what Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in Sunday's New York Times Magazine:  "Frankly I had thought that at the time [Roe vs. Wade] was decided," Ginsburg told her interviewer, Emily Bazelon, "there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."  The comment, which bizarrely elicited no follow-up from Bazelon or any further coverage from the New York Times — or any other major news outlet — was in the context of Medicaid funding for abortion.

A Smoking Gun — But with a Silencer.  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently unburdened herself to the New York Times ... Here, if ever there was one, is a smoking gun.  Here is confirmation of what pro-lifers have long maintained — that liberal abortion is, in Jesse Jackson's words, "black genocide."

Ginsburg and the Surplus Population:  [Scroll down slowly]  The entire Ginsburg interview is a reminder of the risks of lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court.  Immune from criticism, surrounded by plump cushions of deference, the temperament of a justice can become exaggerated over time.  For Ginsburg, complex arguments are now "so obvious" and "can never be otherwise" — and opposition is fated to failure.  Such statements, made during Ginsburg's own nomination hearing, would have been disqualifying.  Now she doesn't [care].

Educating Ed on Abortion's Racist Past, and Present.  [Scroll down]  The abortion lobby has targeted minority communities, particularly black women, from its inception.  Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, the nation's leading provider of abortion, was a commited eugenicist.  According to her New York Times obituary, she sought to encourage birth control and/or abortion among "subnormal children."

MSM Scoffs At 'Black Children Are an Endangered Species' Campaign.  On January 25 a whopping 62 billboard signs sprang up in African-American neighborhoods in Atlanta, Georgia, all with the same message:  "Black Children are an Endangered Species."  The two groups sponsoring the billboard campaign, Georgia Right to Life and the Radiance Foundation, intended the signage to be provocative.  Black genocide demands attention — but not, apparently, from the MSM.

Black Activists Outraged Over Liberal Merger of Abortion and Civil Rights.  Inclusion of Planned Parenthood in a self-described civil rights coalition has outraged members of the black leadership network Project 21, as Planned Parenthood advocates and provides abortions -- particularly in the black community.

Abortions — Number, Rate, and Ratio by Race, 1980 to 2003.  Read the numbers for yourself.  It is the blacks who are suffering the most from abortion, yet most blacks continue to support the pro-abortion Democratic Party.

The Left's Genocide of Minorities.  A 2010 report from the Guttmacher Institute confirmed the disproportionate minority statistics:  of all abortions, non-Hispanic black women accounted for 30%, Hispanic women 25%, and 3% members of other races, including American Indians.  All this has happened since the Civil Rights Act was passed. ... Four out of five of Planned Parenthood's clinics are located in minority neighborhoods, with blacks the primary target.  For the Hispanic community, PP's literature is translated into Spanish, and Spanish-speaking "outreach directors" have been hired to bring in Latinas.

Eugenics: the skeleton that rattles loudest in the left's closet.  [Scroll down]  It is eugenics, the belief that society's fate rested on its ability to breed more of the strong and fewer of the weak.  So-called positive eugenics meant encouraging those of greater intellectual ability and "moral worth" to have more children, while negative eugenics sought to urge, or even force, those deemed inferior to reproduce less often or not at all.  The aim was to increase the overall quality of the national herd, multiplying the thoroughbreds and weeding out the runts.  Such talk repels us now, but in the prewar era it was the common sense of the age.

Abortionist: 'Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies'.  The abiding creed of the left is that actions must be based on convenience, not morals.  Hence abortion practitioner Ashutosh Ron Virmani, of Charlotte, N.C. articulated his defense of the practice by citing the cost to taxpayers of raising children, and didn't hesitate to throw in a dollop of racism against blacks as part of the mix.

Raw Footage: Charlotte Abortionist Slurs Blacks.  Operation Save America, a pro-life group, confronted Dr. Ashutosh Ron Virmani, an abortionist practicing in Charlotte North Carolina, at his house.  They caught him on video telling the pro-lifers they should "adopt one of those ugly black babies" if they're so keen on trying to save them.




Planned Parenthood and the Susan G. Komen Foundation

Susan G. Komen [...] organization faces nationwide race cancellations and flagging donations.  While the country's largest breast cancer charity, Susan G. Komen, announced it was cancelling half its 3-day races nationwide next year, CEO Nancy Brinker's compensation package has increased considerably in the past two years.  And at $684,000, the pay itself is enough to raise eyebrows, not to mention Brinker's 2012 announcement she would be stepping down as Komen CEO.

Komen Forced to Drop Fundraising Events in Seven Cities.  In early 2012, after the breast cancer charity Komen for the Cure announced it would end its relationship with Planned Parenthood, the group quickly saw a 100 percent spike in fundraising.  But alas, defenders of the nation's largest abortion provider and their accomplices in the liberal media, chief among them MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, struck back with a vengeance and the group eventually reversed itself under intense pressure from the Left.  Ever since the epic Komen cave, however, the organization has seen faltering fundraising.

Komen cancels 3-Day walk in District, six other cities in 2014.  The Susan G. Komen foundation canceled its signature 3-Day walk in Washington and six other cities next year, slashing the number of the fundraising events by half, as participation continues to drop more than a year after a funding controversy involving Planned Parenthood.  Komen called its decision to pull out of the event one that "was not made lightly, as this bold and empowering event has touched the lives of thousands of participants."

Komen extends fundraising efforts after race falls short.  The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Houston saw a sharp decline in participation in the charity's main fundraising event last month, falling 50 percent short of its $3 million goal.  Earlier this year, Komen received nationwide criticism after it announced it would stop making grants to Planned Parenthood for breast-cancer screening.  It reversed its decision three days later.

Planned Parenthood Bullied the Komen Foundation to Preserve its "Trusted Healthcare Provider" Facade.  In her newly released book, Planned Bullyhood, Karen Handel, former senior vice president of public policy at the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, gives an insider's account of the events surrounding the controversial split and subsequent reuniting of the Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood.  Seeking to set the record straight, Ms. Handel exposes the media spin and dirty tactics of Planned Parenthood that enabled the organization to bully the Komen Foundation into lowering its standards to preserve Planned Parenthood's public image — or perhaps more accurately, its public mirage.

Komen insider: Planned Parenthood 'outgunned and overwhelmed' cancer charity.  Criticizing major players on both sides, Karen Handel, former vice president of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has written a blistering insider's account of the prominent cancer charity's decision to halt grants to Planned Parenthood and its swift retreat in the face of an intense, widespread backlash.

Race for the Cure registration down after Komen controversy.  Race for the Cure is the biggest fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Central Indiana Chapter.  Last year more than 37,000 people participated, raising $2.6 million for breast cancer research, screenings, and treatment. [...] This year, numbers are going in the wrong direction.  Race registrations are down 30 percent, and fundraising is also down 18 percent.

Susan G. Komen Foundation Fact Sheet:  In the United States, there are about 115 Susan G. Komen Affiliates.  Of these, at least 112 sponsor a Race for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research.  To date, at least 43 of these Susan G. Komen Affiliates have given grants Planned Parenthood Centers or other abortion clinics, totaling more than 100 grants given across the nation Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics since 1998. … The Susan G. Komen Foundation refuses to acknowledge any possible link between abortion and breast cancer, going so far as to list abortion first under "Factors not related to breast cancer" on their website.

Breast Cancer Research Giant Funds Planned Parenthood.  Do you think it odd that the largest private funding source for breast cancer research is giving sizeable grants to entities whose activities actually cause breast cancer?  You aren't the only one, but that's exactly what is happening.

Latina Komen Advisor Resigns.  Four days ago [9/16/2004] Eve Sanchez Silver, a charter member of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council, (SGK) received an article from a colleague which suggested that SGK is currently funding Planned Parenthood.  She thought it was a lie.  It wasn't. … Upon investigating the allegations that SGK was indeed funding Planned Parenthood through affiliate grants, she resigned from SGK, canceling several speaking engagements around the country and resigning as well from her own beloved council.

Articles Detail Komen-Planned Parenthood Ties.  On the occasion of the Susan G. Komen Foundation holding "Race for the Cure" events around the country, purportedly to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research, I recommend you read two articles which highlight the financial ties between Komen and the pro-abortion group, Planned Parenthood. … Everyone wants to cure breast cancer.  Unfortunately, however, not everyone wants to end abortion.

Pro-Life Senators Slammed for Alliance With 'Race for the Cure'.  Senators Craig Thomas and Mike Enzi routinely vote on the side of pro-life causes, but their alliance with the Komen Foundation's Wyoming affiliate exists despite the fact that Komen hands part of the money it raises over to local chapters of the pro-abortion Planned Parenthood Federation of America.  Planned Parenthood clinics provide breast cancer screening and education, but the organization is the nation's top abortion provider.

The Komen Foundation's Race For Abortion.  Here's the rub:  the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation sent $475,000 in twenty-one grants to local Planned Parenthood affiliates in 2003!  "What's wrong with that?" you ask.  Simple.  Planned Parenthood is the number one abortion provider in America  — killing an average of 140,000 unborn babies in the womb annually.

Exposé Video Shows Planned Parenthood Pressuring Young Woman to Get Abortion Soon.  A new undercover video taken of staff at a Planned Parenthood abortion business in Milwaukee, Wisconsin shows them pressuring a woman to have an abortion.  The video also has staff members giving medically inaccurate abortion counseling and distorting basic facts of fetal development at the taxpayer-funded abortion center.

Ohio Bishops Steer Parishes Away From Komen.  Ohio's Catholic bishops are steering local parishes and schools away from one of the nation's leading breast cancer research groups, warning members that fundraising for the organization could indirectly support abortion and human embryonic stem cell research.

Komen Founder Nancy Brinker's Mysterious Expense Report.  The recent crisis over Komen's decision to de-fund — and then re-fund — Planned Parenthood has put Brinker under intense scrutiny, with observers questioning everything from her management style to her earnings to her spending.

The Left's Other Attack on Komen Fund.  Susan G. Komen's short-lived decision to drop grants to Planned Parenthood was met with fury from the left wing, and its outrage was immediately reported by the liberal news media.  But it wasn't the first time Komen had been attacked from the left.  As a private charity, Komen was within its rights to not renew grants for breast health care for Planned Parenthood, a group that doesn't even perform mammograms, but that wasn't how the media covered it.

Komen brand plummets from 'gold standard' to 'trailing the pack'.  Harris Interactive reports that its EquiTrend study found that the non-profit's decision to defund, then reinstate, funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood has caused "steep drops" in the "brand health" of the foundation.  According to Harris, in the study's 23-year history, Komen's 21 percent drop in so-called brand equity — or a brand's value — is one of the most dramatic plummets Harris has seen, second only to Fannie Mae in 2009.

Komen grants flowing to Planned Parenthood.  Grants from the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure are flowing to Planned Parenthood, as the women's health organizations seek to rebuild their relationship after the controversy in February over the breast cancer charity's unsuccessful attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.  At least 17 Planned Parenthood affiliates will be funded this year, about the same number that received grants in 2011, according to a tally provided by Komen.

Fewer sign up to race for the cure.  A little more than a week before the Central Indiana Susan G. Komen for the Cure race on April 21 in Indianapolis, about 23,000 people had signed up — 30% fewer than at the same time before last year's race.

With Support Off as Events Begin, Komen Works to Revive Its Image.  Registered attendance or donations have declined by more than 25 percent at some of the group's recent Race for the Cure events, according to interviews with officials at 10 of the national nonprofit's local affiliates.
