    FULL TITLE: WATCH: Planned Parenthood Exec Confronted About Using ‘Less Crunchy’ Abortion Technique To Increase Profit A Planned Parenthood CEO refused to answer questions Friday about her failure to reprimand a doctor who was secretly filmed boasting about “less crunchy” abortion techniques so as to acquire better body parts for sale. Sheri Bonner, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley, refused to answer questions on Friday about evidence she gave in the organization’s lawsuit against journalist/activist David Daleiden, and his colleagues about undercover videos that showed senior executives negotiate over the sale of body parts from abortions. The judge...

    Planned Parenthood is plotting its revenge against the pro-life Trump administration with some fat political donations. The abortion mill, which insists that Americans not see it as a political entity but a necessity for women’s health, has pledged millions of dollars to defeating Donald Trump in 2020. Wow that’s a lot of money for political special interest. And here we thought they were penny pinching since being forced off of Title X subsidies. The Hill reported October 9 that a Planned Parenthood super PAC “announced a $45 million electoral campaign on Wednesday to defeat President Trump and Republicans in key...
  • Democrats Are Going to Regret Beto’s Stance on Conservative Churches

    The issue of gay rights and recognition and acceptance of the LGBTQ community has moved at warp speed—in political terms anyway—this past decade. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage,” said the candidate Barack Obama in 2008. At Thursday night’s nationally televised forum on LGBTQ rights, candidate Beto O’Rourke showed how far, and how quickly, the Democratic Party has moved. The former Texas congressman caused quite a stir when he said he would support revoking the tax-exempt status of religious institutions—colleges, churches, and charities—if they opposed same-sex marriage.

    A pro-life display memorializing the unborn victims of abortion was destroyed by vandals Saturday outside a Catholic church in Pennsylvania. The report is the latest in a growing string of harassment, assaults, vandalism and other incidents targeting pro-lifers. Earlier this month, volunteers at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham, Pennsylvania, set up the pro-life display for Respect Life month, according to a news release. The 61 crosses in the display symbolize the 61 million babies who have been aborted since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion on demand in 1973. The pastor Rev. Monsignor Joseph P. Gentili said 40 of...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

The page, which is simply titled “Our Positions,” states where the Seattle tech giant stands on eleven issues -- several of which have a direct impact on business in America.
  • Abortionists' lawyer flubs, asks witness about crimes in industry

    Lawyers for a defendant in a civil action in California over the 2015 undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood and the American abortion industry's profiting from baby body parts say lawyers for abortionists have flubbed. The civil lawsuit by abortion interests targets David Daleiden, Sandra Merritt and the Center for Medical Progress, including board member Troy Newman. They released a series of videos that show, among other things, one abortionist seeking higher pay for baby body parts because "I want a Lamborghini." The civil case, in which abortionists are seeking monetary damages for the videos, are a prelude to the...

    When 69-year-old Marietta Jinde died in September 2016, police had already been called to her home several times because of reports of possible abuse. A detective described conditions at the woman’s home in Gardena as “horrendous.” She was so emaciated and frail that the hospital asked Los Angeles County adult protective services officials to look into her death. Yet by the time a coroner’s investigator was able to examine Jinde’s 70-pound body, the bones from her legs and arms were gone. Also missing were large patches of skin from her back. With permission from county officials and saying they did...

    San Francisco, CA – The RICO case filed by Planned Parenthood against Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, and other pro-life activists, including Sandra Merritt, David Daleiden, and Albin Rhomberg, who were involved in investigating the trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit, continued yesterday with a development of note. An observer inside the courtroom told Operation Rescue that one abortionist took the stand who said he had a brief discussion with undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress. When asked why he wanted to talk to the journalists, who posed as representatives of an organ procurement company,...

    FULL TITLE: Woman with Perforated Uterus Rushed from Planned Parenthood Abortion Facility that Possibly Supplies Aborted Baby Tissue Providence, RI – An ambulance was called on June 11, 2019, for a 21-year old African-American woman who suffered a perforated uterus during an abortion at the Providence Health Center Planned Parenthood in Rhode Island. A perforated uterus means that a hole was torn through the uterine wall and into the abdominal cavity. It is a potentially life-threatening abortion complication that can cause severe pain, hemorrhaging, internal bleeding, infection, and death. Perforations have been known to also damage other organs inside the...

    He says this will include historically black colleges and mosques Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke doubled down on his proposal to revoke the tax-exempt status of religious institutions that do not support same-sex marriage. The former Texas congressman reiterated his support for punitive tax measures against churches or affiliated services that believe marriage is between a man and a woman, a position he introduced at CNN's Equality Town Hall on Thursday evening. NBC host Geoff Bennett asked O'Rourke how he would implement this plan given that the government "can't just dole out punishments on theological grounds." "You are free to...

    When couples struggling to conceive approach an infertility clinic for help, they’re not just patients seeing a doctor: they’re also healthcare consumers navigating a billion-dollar industry. All too often, they’re also sucked onto a moving sidewalk designed to effortlessly take them from one intervention to another, without stopping to heal their spirits, discern their options, or possibly close their wallets. That’s what happened to me. I should be clear: I feel that most of the doctors we talked to were sincerely trying to help. This was especially the case with the reproductive endocrinologists who worked with nonprofit hospitals. They are...

    Efforts to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom are beating expectations, having reached 150,000 signatures three weeks after launching. According to the petition’s originator, Congressional candidate Erin Cruz, the petition is expected to hit 600,000 signatures by the end of this month. The petition needs to have 1.5 million signatures by February 13, 2020. Cruz is shooting for 2.4 million to make sure enough get certified. If the recall petition reaches its signature requirements, California will hold a new gubernatorial election. Newsom will be forced to step down if he loses. The last time a recall petition was successful in California...

    Cecile Richards may no longer be the leader of Planned Parenthood, but that doesn’t mean she’s done spreading her pro-abortion message. After leaving the organization in 2018, Richards wrote a memoir, Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead. The book received glowing reviews from Hillary Clinton and Gloria Steinem, but no children could be compelled to pick up the 200-plus page memoir. As all activists know, you have to make disciples young, so Richards rewrote the book for a more impressionable audience. The young readers edition of Make Trouble comes out later this month. To...

    New Mexico's abortion-supporting governor is being challenged over what is a “human right” both inside and outside the womb. Gov. Michelle Grisham attended the 50th anniversary gathering of the National Abortion Rights Action League, where she praised the group for its “defense of human rights.” Vince Torres of the Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico says pro-lifers certainly took notice. “We found it very interesting,” he tells OneNewsNow, “that the governor would choose to describe their work in terms of human rights when abortion, specifically the work that NARAL supports through late-term abortion, and even opposing sensible legislation like the...

    Hundreds of pro-life advocates rallied outside a huge new Planned Parenthood abortion facility Wednesday in Illinois after it was built in secret. Last week, news broke about the new abortion facility in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Planned Parenthood has been building it secretly for about a year, and plans to open later this month. The new abortion business will abort unborn babies for any reason up past viability. It advertises abortions up to 24 weeks — when premature babies are surviving at 22 and 23 weeks. Planned Parenthood also hopes to attract women from other nearby states where abortions are more...

    An appeals court panel upheld a ruling Friday blocking Ohio from protecting unborn babies with Down syndrome from discriminatory abortions. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled 2-1 against the pro-life law, arguing that its enforcement would block “access to constitutionally protected health care services.” The 2017 law prohibits abortions that are performed specifically because an unborn baby has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU filed a lawsuit against the state, and a judge with close ties to Planned Parenthood blocked it last year. Stephanie Ranade Krider, vice president of Ohio...

    California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed into law a radical bill that would force colleges to provide free abortions on campus. The pro-abortion bill, which passed the state legislature in September, mandates that all public colleges and universities provide abortion drugs for free to students up to 10 weeks of pregnancy starting Jan. 1, 2023. The bill promotes abortion instead of providing young women with pregnancy support and options. Now that the bill has become law, 34 public college campuses in the state will be forced to begin providing abortion drugs. According to the bill, lawmakers hope to collect about...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Evidence Suggests The Francis-Scalfari Connection is No Accident Since the news broke early this week that the nonegenarian atheist socialist editor of Italy’s La Repubblica, Eugenio Scalfari, claimed that Pope Francis told him during one of their many conversations that he did not believe Jesus was God, the Catholic commentariat has been engaged in a rhetorical battle to the death over who to believe, whether it’s true, and what it all means.For those willing to look objectively at the matter, it becomes clear that the confusion is the result of an intentional strategy on the part of the...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently announced the details of her long-anticipated prescription drug reform plan. Not surprisingly, the plan is more of the same from the Democrat leadership – price controls, government meddling in the marketplace, and disincentives to invention and innovation. As the Democratic Party is engaged in a full march towards socialism with “Medicare for All,” free college, higher taxes, and government control over every industry - this drug plan fits right into that radical agenda. Some have suggested that prescription drug reform is one area where President Trump (and the GOP) can find common ground with the...
