    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Wednesday said she is likely to oppose a bill backed by Senate Republican leaders that would defund Planned Parenthood. “I'm still looking at the bill, but if it is an immediate defunding of Planned Parenthood before we have more facts in, then I would likely oppose the amendment,” Collins told reporters.

    The House appears unlikely to vote on defunding Planned Parenthood before the August recess despite mounting pressure on Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced at an anti-abortion rally outside the Capitol on Tuesday that the Senate would vote to defund the group before leaving town for a five-week recess. And with the release of a third undercover video now targeting Planned Parenthood, a House bill to defund the group has reached 140 supporters.

    After two shocking videos caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, a third video has been released today catching a Planned Parenthood vice president negotiating the sale of aborted babies and attempting to get as much money as possible from the deal.

Four Democratic congresswomen on Thursday asked Harris and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to determine if officials from the Irvine-based Center for Medical Progress broke any laws when they posed as workers for a biotech company while recording Planned Parenthood physicians without their consent. Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler and Yvette Clarke cited reports that founder David Daleiden filed paperwork to create a phony entity. They also asked the state’s top law

Even though it has already been demonstrated that Ebola can be brought over to the United States by a passenger on an airplane, Obama refuses to do anything that would even restrict air travel from nations where Ebola is spiraling out of control. Back in September, Obama said that it was "unlikely" that any individual with Ebola could get through the "extensive screening" at our airports and pose a threat to the general population. But he was wrong. That has already happened. And...

Today, it's the US dollar to which international investors flock as a safe haven for their money.

The bill also includes new sanctions against those providing arms or oil to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime.

    Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report for 2011-2012, released Monday, reveals that the abortion and women’s health provider received $542.4 million from taxpayers in government grants and reimbursements — constituting 45 percent of the organization’s revenue. Abortions constituted 3 percent of the services Planned Parenthood provided from October 2010 to September 2011. According to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the 333,964 abortions the organization performed in that timeframe represented a record high for Planned Parenthood. The group noted that from 2009 through 2011, Planned Parenthood performed 995,687 abortions.

    Egypt’s new constitution “prepares the way for an Islamic caliphate”, according to the acting leader of Coptic Catholics, who is among three bishops to condemn the document as a fundamental attack on human rights. The bishops expressed their profound disappointment with the constitution signed into law on December 26, saying only extremist Muslims’ rights were guaranteed by the new document and that at particular risk were women, young people and religious minorities. Bishop Kyrillos William, administrator of the Coptic Catholic Patriarchate of Alexandria, said: “We were waiting for a constitution that represents the whole of Egypt but instead we have...

    Thanks to Barack Hussein Obama’s Arab Spring scheme of turning the Egypt of Hosni Mubarek into a “representative democracy,” the US is now reduced to watching as a former friend and ally morphs into an America-hating, Sharia-based theocracy. Six months after promising to build a government based on “freedom and social justice,” Egypt’s newly elected president Mohamed Morsi authored a decree granting himself a level of dictatorial authority which even Mubarek did not enjoy. As a result, demonstrations began throughout the nation culminating last week in Morsi fleeing the presidential palace in Cairo. (1) Though he has since rescinded most...

    In the wake of President Barack Obama’s assertion that women “rely on” Planned Parenthood for mammograms, about 2,000 pro-life activists called Planned Parenthood offices to schedule appointments for the breast health service, according to the Catholic EWTN News. While Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms, however, it does offer breast exams and referrals. “When Governor Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country, who rely on Planned Parenthood for, not just contraceptive care, they rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women...

    Editor's note: This column was authored by Catherine Glenn Foster, Litigation Counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. It seems that every day the effects of the culture of death on our society are more and more obvious, and more and more gruesome. Just take the continued funding of Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars. This ongoing controversy was highlighted recently when President Barack Obama declared yet again that he wants to continue pumping our hard-earned money into Planned Parenthood. Why? So it will still be around to perform abortions for daughters if they want one. He drew a contrast with...

    The Obama administration has hired the former top spokesman for the Planned Parenthood abortion business as deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Tait Sye, the former media director for the nation’s biggest abortion business, will now work in the press shop for the department that is under fire for promoting abortion funding via Obamacare and putting forward a mandate that forces religious groups to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees. Not only will the man who formerly spoke for the company that does more than one-quarter of all...

    Forbes Ryan Holiday, Contributor 4/03/2012 @ 7:58AM |99,568 views Why Wouldn't Planned Parenthood Take $500,000? I tried. I really did. I was ready to arrange a $500,000 donation to Planned Parenthood in Texas. The donor was in the car on the way to meet the CEO, checkbook in hand. But then Planned Parenthood called and told him to turn around. They didn’t want his money. Want is the only word for it. Because, Planned Parenthood sure as hell needs it. See, in Texas, Governor Rick Perry has viciously attacked family planning and health organizations like Planned Parenthood. Not only eliminating...
