    Supporters of Planned Parenthood are trying to boost the abortion giantís shaky bottom line by selling sex toys, uterus-themed emojis and sex-positive wrapping paper. The merchandise may be X-rated, but abortion opponents say itís just another argument in favor of weaning Planned Parenthood off taxpayer funding.

    New documents obtained by Operation Rescue reveal Planned Parenthoodís attempt to use the State of California as a tool to challenge any potential defunding in the current efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. Operation Rescue received the records from the Office of the California Attorney General as the result of a public records request. On March 17, 2017, Celinda Vazquez, Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, sent an e-mail marked ďHighĒ importance to Attorney General Xavier Bacerra, that included a letter from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California requesting a meeting to discuss ďpotential litigation in the...

    Itís not law yet, and it doesnít cut overall spending that much. Nor does it significantly cut the deficit or come close to balancing the budget, which will never come under control until the 800 lb. elephant in the room ó ďentitlementsĒ ó are gutted dramatically. And it doesnít go as far as I would in slashing and burning the DC bureaucracy ó largely unconstitutional ó a giant sucking sound of redistribution of wealth from hardworking Americans to the blood-sucking leeches in the nationís capitol. {..snip..}

    The House voted Thursday to make it easier for states to deny federal family-planning funds to groups such as Planned Parenthood that also perform abortions. A rule imposed by the Obama administration says that states cannot deny funding to clinics for reasons unrelated to their ability to provide basic family planning services. Federal dollars cannot be used to pay for abortions, except in restricted circumstances. Tennessee Rep. Diane Black and other Republicans said the rule, finalized in December, unfairly restricts how states can spend federal family-planning funds. Ö

    President Trump will direct his secretary of homeland security to examine ways the administration can suspend grants to so-called "sanctuary cities," or areas where law enforcement agents do not enforce immigration laws, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday. "What the executive order does is, it directs the secretary to ... look at funding streams that are going to these cities ... and figure out how we can defund those streams," Spicer said of an executive action Trump was expected to sign later in the day. Spicer dismissed suggestions that Trump would seek to deport children who were brought...

    Full Title:¬†¬†Trump Didn¬ít Just Re-enact the Old Ban on Funding International Planned Parenthood ¬Ė He Made It Vastly Stronger WASHINGTON, D.C., January 25, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) ‚Äď President Trump‚Äôs newly reinstated ban on funding to foreign pro-abortion groups is not just a repeat of old Republican policy it turns out. In fact, it is vastly stronger. The ‚ÄúMexico City Policy‚ÄĚ has been enacted by Republican presidents since Reagan, and subsequently overturned by Democratic presidents. It bars U.S. taxpayer funding to organizations abroad that perform or promote abortions. But Trump‚Äôs version of the executive order goes even further. Not only does it...

    Currently, a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money is given to National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) each year. Trump plans to do away with that. The Hill has reported: ďThe Trump Administration needs to reform and cut spending dramatically, and targeting waste like the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities would be a good first step in showing that the Trump Administration is serious about radically reforming the federal budget,Ē said Brian Darling, a former aide to Paul and a former staffer at the Heritage Foundation. The Regan Administration attempted something similar...

    A Republican initiative aimed at repealing the Affordable Care Act ďis about denying women healthcareĒ and ďdisempowering women,Ē NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue said on Capitol Hill Thursday. Speaking at a press conference held by House Democratic leaders to protest GOP plans to repeal the ACA and defund Planned Parenthood, Hogue said President-elect Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP-controlled Senate have ďno mandate to take away our healthcare.Ē ďMore Americans voted for Democratic leadership in the White House and the Senate than voted for the Republicans,Ē she said. Hogue also cited ďreportsĒ saying ďthat Trump voters are...

    Republicans controlling the Senate are abandoning an effort to use their power over the federal purse strings to block implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The more pragmatic approach with a huge $164 billion spending measure reflects a hope by top Republicans like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to remove veto bait from must-pass spending bills in hopes of advancing them more easily.

    Commenting on the passage of a bill in the House of Representatives to defund Planned Parenthood, Reverend Franklin Graham said it was "a great step" that he hopes will also pass in the Senate, adding that although President Barack Obama has said he will veto such legislation, if he does "it will be at his own peril," and the blood of the children "butchered at Planned Parenthood will be on his hands." "After much heated and emotional debate, on Friday the House passed the Defund Planned Parenthood Act," said Rev. Graham in a Sept. 20 post on Facebook. "This is...

The debate came on the same week that the Center for Medical Progress released itís 10th video in a series exposing the abortion corporation selling aborted babies and their body parts for research.

    Congressional Republicans are coming up with every excuse imaginable to avoid having to defund Planned Parenthood. Right now theyíre going with the ďletís investigateĒ card. They think that if they just probe deeply enough theyíll have enough ammunition to attack the Democrats. Yes, that would be the exact same Democrats who have seen the same videos everyone else has seen and decided it is no big deal. Conservatives in Congress are gearing up for a fight on this issue against their own leadership. Sen.

    Sen. Ted Cruz will hold a telephone town hall with church leaders Tuesday to discuss his plan for defunding Planned Parenthood. "Recently, all of us have seen the videos of the behind-the-scenes dealings at the Planned Parenthood facilities, activities that all of us find horribly offensive," Cruz said in a video invitation to the national conference call. "But even more appalling is that we as taxpayers are funding these activities." Cruz has been an outspoken critic of Planned Parenthood subsidies since a series of undercover videos shed light on the organization's policy of donating fetal tissue to researchers. "Only our...

    Since the release of the first incriminating Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, a flurry of investigations have ensued. These videos at least show evidence indicating a strong likelihood of illegal activity, and at worst show despicable, callous disregard for the law, human life, and women. Here are the ongoing official investigations and government actions taken against Planned Parenthood. As of Wednesday, five states have made moves to defund Planned Parenthood, or end participation in the funneling of federal money to the unscrupulous organization. These states are New Hampshire, Utah, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Alabama. Thirteen states have...
