    As always, the Food and Drug Administration has its eye on the ball and its arms around freedom…in a big, stifling bear hug. The Founders no doubt intended that the federal government would have a passel of people in charge of telling successful condiment producers what they can put on their labels. For freedom. In this case, the federal government has decided a vegan company cannot put the name “Just Mayo” on its clearly labeled vegan mayonnaise product because the company doesn’t include egg whites in the mixture and does include some healthy stuff, like beta carotene. One would think...

    Kick the federal government out of their State in regards to Planned Parenthood, abortion, any and all health services, health programs, health care, or health insurance intrusions Radio Host Dave Levine, a host on KMET 1490 AM on Monday, wrote on his blog, “Arkansas is the fourth state to terminate such contracts with the Feds—New Hampshire, Alabama and Louisiana are the others. By this time next year, 30-plus states will have stopped funding the baby killer company.” Mr. Levine was referring to Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson’s decision to order his State’s Department of Human Services to terminate the Medicaid contract...

    Seeking to divert attention from her admittedly unwise and likely illegal handling of classified material through her unsecured private email account, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton sought to draw a parallel between advocates of defunding Planned Parenthood and Islamic terrorists. "Both groups relegate women to second class status," Clinton claimed. "Both deny women the right to control their reproductive heath. Both would force women to be vessels for carrying unwanted children into the world. Both espouse out-of-date ideas about how the world should work." GOP presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla) characterized Clinton's claims "as twisted and malevolent an inversion...

    Mandates have consequences, bro The argument has been ever-present, where ObamaCare is concerned, that mandating generous benefits while forbidding insurers from considering factors like pre-existing conditions, could only result in one thing: Sky-high, jacked up premiums for everyone. It’s simple economics. You can’t artificially heighten demand by forcing everyone to buy, while also mandating a gold standard in coverage, and not see prices soar. But Barack Obama thinks the regulatory state can do what the stone-cold laws of the market cannot. So when insurers earlier this year began submitting their rate increase requests to state regulators - and the numbers...

    Sanger's vision of genocide through abortion is not only being carried out, but it has expanded into an evil that cases like Kermit GosnelL California State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, requested an audit of Planned Parenthood. Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue. Her request was rejected by a State...

    In 2013, the Michigan Legislature passed a bill expanding Medicaid, a core component of the federal Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. Given Republican control of the state House, Senate and governor’s office, the move surprised many. Two years earlier, referring to another ACA provision (the insurance exchange), Chuck Moss, then the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said GOP lawmakers would “rather be caught sacrificing to Satan than voting for Obamacare.” Lost in the hubbub surrounding the expansion bill was a section requiring hospitals that were contracted by the state to provide managed care services under Medicaid to offer “healthy...

    Planned Parenthood's executive vice president Dawn Laguens said the organization is weighing whether to sue the Center for Medical Progress, the group behind the release of videos showing that Planned Parenthood is engaged in murdering, dismembering, and selling aborted babies. "Since these videos were made secretly without Planned Parenthood's explicit consent they constitute an egregious invasion of privacy," Laguens maintained. "Invasion of privacy is a crime. That makes the videos the 'fruit from the poisoned tree' and inadmissible as evidence against Planned Parenthood for any alleged crimes depicted in the videos."

    August 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- President Obama's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) told Congress late last week that Planned Parenthood has been following the law in its practice of attaining fetal tissue and body parts for sale. HHS also insisted it does not fund fetal tissue research or elective abortion through Planned Parenthood. Rather, it gives the nation's largest abortion provider money for its "critical health services." In a letter sent late Friday and addressed to Sens. Joni Ernst and Roy Blunt, HHS's assistant secretary for legislation contended that HHS "knows of no violations" of U.S. fetal tissue...

Ritter, and many others, like to invoke the 1954 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

I refuse to belive that abortions make up only 3% of their services considering how many innocent lives they have taken since Roe vs. Wade, so I am on the lines that they mean that abortions represent 3% of their finance...

    'Heard about it from the news reports' If you’re even a casual observer of current events, you’ve probably seen the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos. If you’re a reporter, blogger, commentator, or just a regular person who follows politics, you’ve definitely seen them. Given that fact, its a safe bet that someone whose day-to-day life is 100% tied to the 24 hour news cycle has seen them. Let’s face it, if everything you do is about handling various sectors of the news media, you have to know what you’re talking about, right? Apparently, no, that’s not right. When CNN’s Jake Tapper...
  • Trump teams with Cruz to defund Planned Parenthood: Mogul would shutter government to achieve goal

    Sen. Ted Cruz and billionaire Donald Trump may be warring for the same White House post, but they’ve nevertheless cast aside politics to push a defund Planned Parenthood strategy, hoping their star-power status will press legislators to add a rider to a bill moving on Capitol Hill that would cut the organization’s finances. Trump gave his official rubber-stamp to the plan during Monday evening remarks, despite the fact Democrats vowed to oppose any bill containing such rider, Politico reported. Call it Obamacare redux. This is the same maneuver Cruz tried with Obamacare in 2013; now, the Texas senator is hoping...

    People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees.​ But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of America’s biggest unions go far beyond donations. Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent...

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has, for the first time, approved a drug that uses 3D printing technology, paving the way for potential customization of drugs to suit patients' needs. The drug, made by privately held Aprecia Pharmaceuticals Co, was approved for oral use as a prescription adjunctive therapy in the treatment of epilepsy, the company said on Monday. Spritam uses Aprecia's "ZipDose" technology, a delivery system that creates premeasured doses which disintegrate in the mouth with a sip of liquid. 3D printing could help companies make products "to the specifications of an individual patient rather than (take a)...

    A series of disturbing videos has brought this grisly practice to the forefront, even if it is nothing new. PhD chemist and theologian Stacy Trasancos dug into the scientific literature to discover some early references… Here’s one from 1972, entitled “Development of Mammalian Sulfur Metabolism: Absence of Cystathionase in Human Fetal Tissues,” published in Pediatric Research. According to the article’s introduction: “We have therefore examined the development of the transsulfuration pathway in 58 human fetuses, obtained at therapeutic abortion during approximately the 2nd-6th month of gestation and in liver from 5 full term and 3 prematurely born infants.” With this...

    I thought it best to post a follow up to my previous post of yesterday. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3317547/posts I would first like to thank everyone for the prayers/thoughts/advice. I noticed several others who have gone through similar circumstances and I thank you for sharing. Since the original post we have got new meds for my wife and she started taking it last night. I’ve also received additional comments from our children. When I got home from work yesterday she kept asking me why I was acting different. She said I was not acting like myself. When I asked what she meant she...

    If I kill an endangered lion in Africa and bring its head and skin home to be stuffed, I will be fined anywhere between $500 and $10,500, depending on how many times I’m caught doing it—not to mention calls for my soul to be fed to Cthulhu after my body is slow roasted on a spit.  But if I sell my own plasma or sperm, I can make $50 per week or more for my blood (for twice a week), and up to $1,500 per month for my sperm. ($125 every 3 days, are you kidding me?). But I can’t...

    The third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood from the Center for Medical Progress is out. By now, the takeaway from this media is clear: this is our Auschwitz. Some might recoil at this statement. Wait a minute, they’re thinking, cool your jets. Auschwitz was a concentration camp. That’s not Planned Parenthood. In the simplest terms, no, Planned Parenthood is not a concentration camp. It is not performing ethnic cleansing (anymore). It performs certain medical services that are of value to women. But for decades, the real “value added” function of the organization has been this: it has provided a safe...

    Hello all. Asking for more prayers for my father. Today he is at Hopkins to have triple-bypass surgery. This is harrowing enough, as is the thought of "recovery" with them cutting bones for it, but last night I just got a call from my aunt (his sister) and she stated that she and my uncle (brother), who is paralyzed, have a defect in their spines and that my dad should ensure surgeons are aware of this because of possible genetic similarity. I called my parents this morning to tell them (my aunt oddly did not mention it to them). But...
