    Wendy Davis made national headlines in 2013 for filibustering anti-abortion legislation in the Texas Senate. Now the former Democratic state senator is poised for more national attention as the inspiration for a dramedy series in development at NBC. Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with...

    After footage of the Planned Parenthood president being grilled by hostile Republican congressmen went viral, Richards sat with Emma Brockes to talk about her mother, Carly Fiorina and the future of women’s healthcare in America.It can be said with some confidence that televised hearings of the House oversight and government reform committee, an investigative body dedicated to upholding congressional standards, do not generally break audience records. Last Tuesday, when Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, appeared at a hearing to account for her organisation’s federal funding, it might have only attracted political diehards.

    New research in Spain proves that unborn babies can hear and respond to music at just 16 weeks, ten weeks earlier than previously thought, but only if played through a 'musical tampon'. The incredible 3D images show the foetuses opening their mouths and sticking out their tongues in response to music emitted via the vagina. "The foetuses responded to the music by moving their mouths and their tongues as if they wanted to speak or sing," said the Instituto Marqués, which unveiled the results of the tests - carried out on 100 pregnant women - on Tuesday.

    It has been a week since reactionary House Republicans mounted a last ditch effort to either cut off federal money to Planned Parenthood or shut down the government. But the public interest won: Planned Parenthood and the federal government are still open. And that’s just the way Richard Nixon would have wanted it. […] So “defunding” Planned Parenthood would primarily mean telling low income people that their Medicaid coverage is of no use for the health care provided by Planned Parenthood. […] It would also be unconstitutional, according to a recent article by David S. Cohen, a law professor at...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 6, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio supports selling the morning after pill over the counter. The Florida senator, a Roman Catholic, said he supports making the abortifacient available without a prescription, perhaps based on a misunderstanding of when conception occurs. “In the cases [of rape or incest], they’re terrible tragedies. They’re horrifying,” Sen. Rubio said in response to a candidate survey by the news editorial site theSkimm. “And luckily in the 21st century, we have treatments available early on after an incident that can prevent that fertilization from happening.

    Mother Theresa warned us years ago, “We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?” As she accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, Mother Theresa declared that abortion “is the greatest destroyer of peace today. Because if a mother can kill her own child—what is left for me to kill you and you kill me—there is nothing between.” In other words, if as a culture we’ve become comfortable killing in the womb, we shouldn’t...

    Arkansas has asked the Supreme Court to revisit its long-standing ruling that a woman can terminate a pregnancy until the fetus is viable outside of the womb. Arkansas on Tuesday asked the justices to overturn a lower court decision that found that the state’s ban on abortion at 12 weeks of pregnancy and when a heartbeat is detected is unconstitutional. The court established the viability standard in the 1973 case Roe v. Wade and reaffirmed it in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Arkansas argues that the viability rule is arbitrary, not written in the constitution, and is outdated....

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has brought a lawsuit against a Catholic health-care system based in Michigan, seeking to force the Church-run hospitals to perform abortions. The ACLU suit against Trinity Health Corporation alleges that affiliated hospitals, guided by the US bishops’ health-care directives, refused to perform abortions for women who had incomplete miscarriages. The suit claims that in these cases, the breaking of amniotic sac leaves the unborn child defenseless, with no realistic chance of survival, while exposing the mother to risk of complications.

It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains.

    The American Civil Liberties Union has sued a Catholic health care provider for refusing to provide abortions. They claim Trinity Health Corporation has violated federal law by “refusing to provide pregnant women suffering emergency medical conditions with abortions necessary to stabilize them”. The 86 hospitals that fall under the corporation are required to abide by “Directive 45” which states abortion is never permitted. In June, U.S. District Judge Robert Holmes Bell dismissed a similar ACLU lawsuit against Trinity Health. He ruled federal courts have no jurisdiction over hospital policy and that patients who believed they received inadequate care should file...

The continuing resolution that Congress passed this week runs until Dec. 11. If resident Obama does “not sign” the spending bill Congress sends him to fund the government after that date, Obama will shut down the government. The government will not be funded until Obama signs an appropriations bill passed by Congress. Fortunately, there were enough votes in both parties to pass a last-minute bill to keep the government...

    Ohio Department of Health Director Richard Hodges, an appointee of Gov. John Kasich, made a behind-the-scenes deal with Planned Parenthood and another abortion business so that they could keep doing surgical abortions while appealing a license denial. On Friday, the Kasich administration's Department of Health denied surgical license exceptions for Planned Parenthood in Mount Auburn and Women's Med in Dayton, because they do not have the ambulatory agreement with a local hospital required for a surgical facility license. In Ohio, a patient transfer contract is required in order to save the lives of women in cases of botched surgical abortions....

    CNS News' Sam Dorman peppered House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Thursday afternoon with several questions about abortion, and a few unimpressed reporters responded quickly by assuming that he was either a conservative activist or just some protester. "A conservative journo asked Pelosi [about] what constitutes a baby being alive," MSNBC's Luke Russert tweeted, making an assumption about Dorman's political affiliations. The Washington Post's Kelsey Snell took it a step further, and initially identified Dorman in an article as a pro-life "protester." The Post has since updated its story to reflect that Dorman is, in fact, a reporter. CNS News...

    Taking a nod from the gay pride movement, abortionists are calling on women to celebrate their abortion experiences on Twitter with the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion. Really. The goal, according to Amelia Bonow, 30, who posted on Facebook on Sept. 19 that she had had an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Seattle last year, was to encourage women who had kept their abortions secret to speak up. “A shout is not a celebration or a value judgment; it’s the opposite of a whisper, of silence,” Ms. Bonow said in an interview. “Even women who support abortion rights have been silent,...

    On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum went on the left-wing talk show The View, where the debate turned to one of the more persistent myths about Planned Parenthood’s services. In response to Whoopi Goldberg asking of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding, “What will you replace it with if you take it away?” Santorum answered: Well, first off, I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does. Planned Parenthood, for example, doesn’t provide mammograms. Now, I know people say...

    Amelia Bonow is in hiding. She left her apartment here after her address was published online and the death threats began. Her crime? She had an abortion. And after the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Sept. 18 to defund Planned Parenthood, she updated her Facebook status with a proud declaration. “Hi guys!” it began. “Like a year ago I had an abortion at the Planned Parenthood on Madison Ave., and I remember this experience with a nearly inexpressible level of gratitude.” She wrote about how “the narrative of those working to defund Planned Parenthood relies on the assumption that...

    Don't let the Left kid you.  When It Comes to the Aborted, the Left in the United States Does Get It.  They (just) ignore the truth. They are just very selective in who they grace in under their compassionate care.  It's for (SOME OF) the children you know. Here is an advertisement.  Consider who is being reverenced here, and who isn't. If these kids were in the last moments of their existence in their mother's womb, non of these posibilities would be heralded. Thought: Maria would have discovered the secrets of gravity, but her mother wanted a son. Thought: Kamile...

    "I'd say a lot of people want liver." 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. "I want a Lamborghini." "You know, in...

    After 5 years, two midterm disasters, and a rollout that reminded Americans why they fell out of love with big government in the 1970s, reality has finally begun to dawn on some Democrats about Obamacare. With open enrollment about to start and a third straight round of premium spikes about to hit voters’ pockets, the Democrats’ leading presidential candidate has offered a “major break” with the Obama administration on its signature domestic policy achievement. Hillary Clinton will speak out against the so-called Cadillac tax on high-coverage health care plans, as early as this week, according to The New York Times....
