    WASHINGTON, D.C., August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- When Planned Parenthood announced on Thursday that a new report cast doubt on a series of embarrassing undercover videos about trafficking in human organs, the mainstream media reported it uncritically. A few outlets even referred to the firm that conducted the analysis, Fusion GPS, as an "independent research firm" - although Planned Parenthood paid the organization an undisclosed sum of money for its findings. However, Fusion GPS is a Democratic-leaning political opposition research firm whose founder was once the registered lobbyist of a Middle Eastern sheikh known for burning the American flag during...

    August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - A Planned Parenthood-funded analysis of eight explosive undercover videos has found that they would have no "evidentiary value" in a legal case against Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood announced today. The abortion provider paid Fusion GPS, a D.C.-based opposition research firm headed by Glenn Simpson, to analyze both the shorter and the hours-long full videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. "CMP edited content out of the alleged 'full footage' videos, and heavily edited the short videos so as to misrepresent statements made by Planned Parenthood representatives," the report, posted by Planned Parenthood, stated.

    Planned Parenthood Federation of America defended itself in a letter to Congress and sent a report showing undercover videos of officials discussing fetal tissue for research were heavily altered by anti-abortion activists. A Planned Parenthood executive said Thursday that experts found the videos were distorted to misrepresent conversations employees had with an anti-abortion activist posing as a biomedical company employee. Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens says her organization broke no laws and that the videos are part of an agenda to ban abortion.

The Sanger bust, on display in a “Struggle for Justice” exhibit since 2010, has been in the news since controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood flared up again. Sanger’s views on race and eugenics have been at the heart of the opposition to her appearance as a face of justice in America. Cruz and Texas Rep.

    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...

    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...

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 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...

    It is tempting to dismiss the latest anti-choice salvo from Ohio lawmakers, which would criminalize abortions based on a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome, as a blatantly unconstitutional ploy that would never be enforced. That would be a mistake.

The law has not yet been enforced — under existing Supreme Court precedent it is hard to see how it could be — but...

    CHICAGO – Catholics must avoid being rigid, embrace change, and show mercy, not harsh judgment, toward nontraditional families. That was the message from Chicago’s Archbishop Blase Cupich Sunday afternoon after receiving his pallium, a wool stole that is a piece of liturgical regalia symbolizing his connection to the pope, from the papal ambassador to the United States. In a 15-minute homily, Cupich said bishops and other Catholics should avoid “absolutizing one particular era” by remembering the richness and diversity of their faith. At the same time, the Church should be “open to new avenues and creativity when it comes to...

    One out of four U.S. employers may soon face a steep new Obamacare tax on the insurance coverage they offer workers, unless they take steps to reduce overall spending on the plans. A new analysis released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 26 percent of employers offer health benefits that could be subject to the Affordable Care Act's "Cadillac" tax on high-cost plans when it starts in 2018. The tax kicks in when the total spending on a health plan — including the employer and employee premium contributions — exceeds $10,022 for an individual or $27,500 for a...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State legislators said Wednesday they want to give the Health Department more authority to track how fetal tissue is disposed of after abortions. Sen. Mike Bell, R-Riceville, who presided over a joint hearing of the Government Operations Committee, said the Health Department is making required inspections of abortion clinics but there could still be illegal tissue sales going on without the inspectors' knowledge. Bell said lawmakers want to know more about how Tennessee regulates abortion after seeing hidden-camera videos that raised the question of whether Planned Parenthood officials in other states were profiting from the sale...

    A biomedical doctor who specializes in adult stem cell research revealed earlier this week that she has long suspected that some aborted fetuses are still alive when their hearts are harvested. Dr. Theresa Deisher, founder of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute and AVM Biotechnology, made the claim this week at the same time that a pro-life group released a new video alleging that a brain was harvested from a “late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating.” Deisher, who vocally opposes embryonic stem cell research and the harvesting of aborted fetal tissue, told The Church Boys podcast on Wednesday that she...

    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, 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.

    A federal appeals court that refused to exempt a group of nuns from Obamacare’s birth-control rules said Friday the sisters can duck the mandate and its hefty fines until the Supreme Court decides whether to take up their appeal. The Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged is among several nonprofit plaintiffs who’ve asked the justices to hear them out next term, saying the Obama administration hasn’t done enough to absolve them from providing birth control they find sinful, including morning-after pills that Catholic groups equate with abortion. “The federal government doesn’t need the Little Sisters or any...

    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...

    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.

"I absolutely do believe that they have violated laws in terms of how they secured these videos," she said in an interview at the group's Washington, D.C., headquarters. "But the fraud is...

She said joining the union would violate her religious beliefs. Misja, a devout Catholic, objects to the union’s decision to donate to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest...
