    On July 14, the Center for Medical Progress began releasing a series of videos about the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. Reporting for the video project was done undercover and took place over the course of several years. The videos feature executives and staffers at Planned Parenthood and affiliated businesses discussing and demonstrating human organ harvesting and the fetal body part trade. Some of the discussions and footage taken inside abortion clinics is quite graphic. The journalism project immediately went viral, with millions of people watching the videos. But the media have largely struggled to even mention the videos and what...

He stood alone on the Senate floor. After this Cruz launched into an hour speech, one that Mark Levin just tweeted out saying it’s a MUST LISTEN. I haven’t heard the whole thing yet but didn’t want to keep it from you while I checked it out.

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is bashing House Republicans’ plans to create a select committee focused on investigating Planned Parenthood after the release of controversial videos about the group’s handling of fetal tissue. “The Speaker’s resignation has not yet broken Republicans’ fevered obsession with shutting down government at the expense of women’s health,” she said in a statement Saturday, noting Friday’s news that Speaker John Boehner will depart after October. “Make no mistake: House Republicans have renewed their war on women's health… Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Committee fixated on dismantling women’s health.” She noted that one...

    U.S. abortion-giant Planned Parenthood would keep almost 90 percent of its taxpayer revenue if Congress passed a supposed “defunding” bill introduced by NC Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC)52% , a close ally of the GOP’s leadership. Dubbed the Women’s Health Accountability Act, the measure would cut Planned Parenthood’s revenue from the federal government’s Title X rules and also require a paperwork review of the abortion group’s services. But those Title X funds comprise only $60 million of the $500 million that the group gets from the federal government each year.

Until now, I’ve been incredibly spoiled and I may have even thought it was your fault that your kid was screaming during dinner. (I may have judged you a little.)

Is there any legal reason that would stop employers from hiring someone who has had an abortion? Or from asking that question on an employment application? Or from having them sign an employment agreement with a morals clause that includes getting an abortion as a reason for termination?...

In 2000, Chris Wallace, then with ABC, revealed on 20/20 that a “hidden camera investigation has found a thriving industry, in which aborted fetuses women donate to help medical research are being marketed for hundreds – even thousands of dollars.” The main target of the...

I wrote the following fictional news piece as a joke with a friend, a fellow journalist, on Facebook as we were anticipating (still waiting, by the way) the official response from the USCCB on the ongoing revelations of the Planned Parenthood videos. The appalling ghastliness of the videos revealing the world’s largest abortionist organisation’s baby-parts business, I felt, made the usual bland, boilerplate, bishopspeak rhetoric seem even more absurd and outrageous than usual. We were having a good (though somewhat grim) laugh, lowering, en-blanding and...

In 2011, I reported a piece for Tablet Magazine about the strange Israeli campaign for posthumous reproduction. Israel is the world capital of reproductive technology, and a legal group called New Family wanted to give parents who had lost adult sons the right to extract their sperm and create grandchildren.

The group said that 205 abortion restrictions were approved over the past three years, more than the 189 enacted during the previous decade.

Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, proposed a bill that would eliminate the two-parents-per-child requirement. According to Leno, surrogate births and same-sex parenthood have created a new environment that has paved the way for nontraditional households, and the traditional two-parent family system is not the only one that can serve the community, Yahoo News reported.
