  • "PLANNED PARENTHOOD" AND ABORTION

    Planned Parenthood is less about “women's health” than it is about providing the last ditch form of birth control for those women who fail to practice adequate contraception. Unless rape is involved, the woman is in control of what happens in these situations. The so-called “Women's Liberation Movement” has essentially given license to women to be as sexually active as many men in this degenerating culture. If you need help conceptualizing or visualizing that, think the sleazy TV production “Sex In The City”. I forced myself to watch a few episodes just to be sure what I'm about to say...

    The recent release of undercover videos that appear to show Planned Parenthood executives engaging in the sale of aborted body parts has put the Jeb Bush Presidential campaign on the defensive. Before becoming a GOP candidate Bush was serving as a director of Bloomberg Philanthropies, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s non-profit, in March 2014 when it announced a $50 million partnership with Planned Parenthood in Africa. At issue is whether Bush was aware of the initiative and if he exercised his fiduciary responsibility as one of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ directors to provide “advice and oversight” to the foundation’s management...

By the evening, it was the most popular topic on social media, and stories about the lion were popping up on all of the national news sites. Before I took the time to investigate, I tried to imagine if there could be any valid reason for a wild cat to become the biggest news item in the world. On a day when another undercover video revealed Planned Parenthood dismembering murdered children for profit, I strained to think if there might be some justification for...

    As a Dutch Amerophile I will never understand why Americans are willing to let their youngest generation be slaughtered by the professional mass murderers of Planned Parenthood. Some accomplices in this genocide (ironically, mostly against black babies!) say that the victims aren’t actually babies, but they know better than that: the babies’ hearts are beating, and their body parts are sold for experimental research. If they weren’t babies, you couldn’t use their organs. It’s simple logic even a die hard progressive can follow, I presume. So what drives this continuing slaughter? I’ve read a lot of opinion pieces by leftists,...

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.

    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...

    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...

Here are 8 disturbing moments from the video. 1) While Planned Parenthood’s public relations campaign resorts to euphemisms about “fetal tissue,” Planned Parenthood officials such as Ginde speak more clearly about the organs they harvest from aborted children.

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 is pulling out all the stops to preserve its federal funding in the face of an aggressive anti-abortion video campaign that shows no signs of slowing down. With a half-billion dollars at stake, the drip-drip release of secretly recorded footage about Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue program has plunged the group into a fight for its survival. As the GOP’s effort to defund it gains momentum, Planned Parenthood is attempting to shift the debate to its opponent’s tactics, hoping to generate outrage while diverting away attention from the topic of fetal tissue recovered from abortions. The group’s top leaders...

Rep. Lamborn’s legislation is a response to four videos that show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of aborted babies and discussing how their abortionists alter procedures to obtain salable organs. The congressman believes his bill is especially important considering the recent revelations regarding Planned Parenthood’s connection with Colorado State University, a state funded school in Northern Colorado.

Still, we’re told it just isn’t accepted within the medical community. Well, someone should explain that to Dr. Savita Ginde, because she has no problem with referring to fetuses as babies. Even after she’s killed them. Dr. Ginde is the vice president and medical director for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. She also performs abortions.

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. “There is ample reason to think that this is merely the tried and true tactic that...

    Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., criticized the House of Representatives for not passing legislation prior to the annual August district work period to defund Planned Parenthood. “Over the past two weeks, we’ve all seen the gruesome videos showing the heartless depravity of this organization,” Black said in a speech Wednesday. “We issued statements, we made passionate floor speeches, and we pledged action. Now, our constituents would like to know when we’re going to follow through on that promise.”

    Planned Parenthood is certainly the target, but its destruction is not the goal, any more than destroying ACORN was the true goal back in 2008. Destruction would be a happy side effect, but the true goal is to destroy the pathway for women to have access to legal and safe abortions. See more of our coverage on the misleading Center for Medical Progress videos here. http://rhrealitycheck.org/tag/center-for-medical-progress-video/ To understand exactly how the most recent Planned Parenthood sting was planned and coordinated, you must go back to 2013. In July of 2013, Washington, D.C. reporter David Corn revealed the existence of a...

    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:

    In an interview with CNN this morning, the pro-life advocate behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research made a startling claim. The claim 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.To set the stage, following the release of the first two shocking videos showing top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of aborted babies with actors posing as biotech firm officials, the bio0tech company StemExpress, which purchases aborted babies from...

    Attention Cecil The Lion Fans: Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe Allegedly Ate A Baby Elephant Outraged animal lovers and conservationists petitioning the White House to extradite big-game hunter Walter Palmer to Zimbabwe for killing Cecil the lion may be unaware the the country’s president, Robert Mugabe, reportedly ate baby elephant meat during his lavish 91st birthday party in late February.

    Society has a funny way of deciding when to express outrage. Millions of innocent humans (aka pregnancy tissue) are slaughtered, and their fully intact body parts are sold. Crickets. A single lion, which was unknown to most of us, gets hunted for sport. International drama. I despise the thought of big game hunting, but it never ceases to amaze me how rhetorically violent animal rights activists become when these creatures are harmed or killed. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has called for the hunter involved, Dr. Walter Palmer, to be hanged. The puppy-killing, celebrity-studded, publicity-stunt-centered organization epitomizes...

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 president...
