    The latest video from the Center for Medical Progress takes viewers on the inside of a tissue-procurement competition between for-profit StemExpress and not-for-profit Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), Inc. Two discussions with undercover investigators demonstrates why the relationship with StemExpress undermines Planned Parenthood’s claims that they do not profit from organ harvesting in their clinics, but it also raises a question about live births from abortions. At one point, ABR procurement manager Perrin Larton describes how some abortions from mothers produce actual births — and the implication is that the babies then become intact cadaver specimens:

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla) waded into the Planned Parenthood controversy and insisted that carving up the unborn for spare parts is both “humane and life-saving.” “First of all, what could be more humane than putting these unwanted creatures out of their misery?” the Congresswoman wondered. Saying that “I doubt that fetuses could feel pain, but even if they could the momentary pain of a medical instrument slicing the spinal cord has got to be far less painful than a lifetime of poverty and abuse as an unwanted child.” “Second, given that the law grants a woman the unrestricted right to...
  • 9th Shocking Video: Planned Parenthood Sells Intact Aborted Babies, One “Just Fell Out” of the Womb

    The Center for Medical Progress released a new video this morning — the 9th in its series of videos catching the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. This latest video catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb. The ninth video in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), the small and secretive company similar to StemExpress that has harvested and sold fetal body parts at Planned Parenthood clinics longer than...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell undercut threats by fellow Republicans to hold the budget process hostage in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, saying conservatives do not have enough support in Congress to cut off the group now under fire from abortion opponents. Instead, the Senate’s top Republican said he is focused on funding the federal government when U.S. lawmakers return next week and will work with President Barack Obama to avert a shutdown, which last paralyzed the government in 2013. On the possibility of tying measures that kill funding of the women’s health group to federal...

    The Center for Medical Progress released a supplemental video today that sheds more light on the profit Planned Parenthood makes associated with the ale of aborted babies and their body parts. Earlier this month, the pro-life organization released a video catching a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video provides evidence showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. Today’s 28-minute supplemental video provides additional proof of that and also shows how Planned Parenthood is making and...

And it’s premeditated so it would be first-degree murder, wouldn’t it?” he said. “These guys, if they truly want to stand up for it, then they gotta go all the way with it.” The bill bans the procedure after the 20-week mark of any pregnancy, and does not contain exceptions for rape and incest victims....

Some conservatives seem determined to bet the farm, and the federal government, on defunding the women’s health services provider. Big mistake.Let’s put aside political questions.

    MOBILE, AL, August 31, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Alabama health officials gave a Planned Parenthood clinic the lightest possible punishment for not reporting that a 14-year-old had two abortions in four months -- in part because state officials trust clinic employees acted in good faith. A state employee who explained this in detail to LifeSiteNews also asked that coverage of the situation be framed in order to protect the Department of Public Health from "a lot of attacks from the anti-abortion people." On November 21, 2014, an annual inspection of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Mobile, Alabama discovered clinic employees had...

    On August 27, Planned Parenthood released what they claimed was a “forensic analysis” report on CMP’s published investigative footage. In reality, the report is a pseudoscientific production by Fusion GPS, a political opposition-research company that has no forensic certifications. While the report, which contains multiple errors, set out to delegitimize CMP’s video evidence, it only provides evidence of the opposite: the report admits that “This analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation” and that it “shows no evidence of audio manipulation.” Planned Parenthood’s review of the undercover meetings with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Dr. Mary Gatter, Dr. Savita...

In response to the Democratic Party’s vote, Terrence Wise, a Kansas City, Mo.

The sign outside the Church on the Hill in Cold Spring reads, "Defund Planned Parenthood... a person's a person no matter how small." The message went up a few days ago after videos surfaced suggesting that Planned Parenthood is selling fetal tissue. Pastor Tim Greco put up the message himself. Speaking with News 12 via Skype, he says that he wanted the community to know where the church stands on the issue. "I think the churches should stand up...

    Abortions in Texas decreased by more than 4,000 cases in 2013 from 2012, which officials attribute to anti-abortion laws—some of the toughest in the United States—passed in the state in 2013. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), there were 63,849 abortions in the state in 2013, down by 4,449 from 68,298 in 2012 and 72,470 in 2011.

Yet, even in its multiple deceptions and distortions, Planned Parenthood makes a number of stunning admissions about its abortion and baby harvesting practices. First, Planned Parenthood admits that “abortion” is a “core” service, meaning it is one that “every affiliate is required...

Maryanne Trump Barry came up in my book The Party of Death for writing one of those heated judicial decisions in favor of giving constitutional protection to partial-birth abortion.

Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens says her organization broke no laws and that the videos are part of an agenda to ban abortion.

    In case you missed it yesterday, Hillary Clinton essentially said Republicans and terrorists treat women the same way. "Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States. Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back," she said.

    A report commissioned by Planned Parenthood has found that the sting videos targeting its tissue donation practices contain intentionally deceptive edits and inaccurately transcribed conversations and are missing footage. But there is no evidence that the anti-abortion group behind the attack made up dialogue. The report by research firm Fusion GPS attempts to undermine the videos’ political, legal and journalistic value. The Center for Medical Progress claims that the eight tapes it has released show evidence that Planned Parenthood is making money by trafficking fetal tissue and organs. The women’s health organization strongly denies those accusations and has repeatedly said...
  • Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Bizarre Op-Ed on RFRAs: He argues that RFRAs are unconstitutional

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channel’s Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fool’s Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitano’s core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Sweeping into office in 2009, President Barack Obama captured near rock-star status around the world among millions who saw him as the embodiment of a new sense of social purpose. Now, that baton has largely been passed to Pope Francis, whose visit to the White House next month will put his common cause with Obama on vivid display. Obama has made no secret of his affection for the outspoken pope, calling him a "transformative leader" whose influence has transcended the Roman Catholic community. The pope has embraced many of the issues Obama has sought to advance, including...

    The scene in front of abortion clinics is often tense, with clinic workers escorting patients past activists waving signs and taking photographs. But increasingly, another drama is unfolding out back. There, abortion opponents dig through the trash in search of patient information. Using garbage as their ammunition, anti-abortion activists – who have sometimes been accused of violating abortion seekers’ privacy – are turning the tables. They claim it’s the clinics that are violating patients’ privacy by discarding medical records in unsecured ways.

    The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first lady’s penchant for secrecy. What’s truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama – and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

    The Obama administration has punished the state of Kansas for cutting taxpayer funds for the Planned Parenthood abortion business by cutting its federal Title X funding by the same amount. The moves comes at the same time the abortion giant is facing intense criticism over its sales of aborted babies and their body parts. In 2011, pro-life Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill signed into law a bill that would shift funding away from the Planned Parenthood abortion business and stops abortion funding in health insurance programs. The Kansas Senate passed the measure on a 28-10 vote and the state...

    The janitor working at a California-based Planned Parenthood clinic caught selling aborted babies to StemExpress does very well financially. As LifeNews reported, some of the expose’ videos have featured 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. StemExpress was partnered with Planned Parenthood up until last week, when it quietly announced it ended its relationship...
