    Exclusive: John Lofton takes Focus on the Family to task for thanking president So, President Bush throws $2.2 billion down the Planned Parenthood rathole and I’m supposed to thank him for not wasting the federal tax dollars of pro-life taxpayers? Well, yes, that’s what the folks at Focus On The Family want me and others to do. The October 2008 issue of Citizen magazine has a full-page article with the headline: “Thanks, Mr. President.” A smaller headline reads: “Pro-life taxpayers can thank President Bush for keeping their dollars from being misspent.” But, there’s a slight problem here that keeps me...

    The ruling of one liberal federal judge proves that America is no longer a republic and doubtful if it is even a democracy. WhatÂ’s the difference? A republic is what our Founding Fathers sacrificed so much to establish. ItÂ’s a government where the people elect leaders to do the will of the majority of the people.A democracy is best described as a government where the people elect leaders to rule over them, regardless of the will of the people. So many people erroneously think America was a democracy but it was NEVER intended to be that way. Also notice that...

    Sometimes even the fact checkers need fact checked. The pro-abortion bias of the popular fact checking website Snopes came through recently when it claimed pro-lifers are wrong to say Planned Parenthood lied about providing prenatal care. Snopes rated the claim “mostly false,” arguing that Planned Parenthood never said it provides prenatal care at all its centers. It also claims Planned Parenthood leaders did not emphasize prenatal care as a primary service, and pro-lifers took their comments out of context. The fact check is based on a new Live Action investigation showing employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women...

    A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Texas can't cut off Medicaid dollars to Planned Parenthood over secretly recorded videos taken by anti-abortion activists in 2015 that launched Republican efforts across the U.S. to defund the nation's largest abortion provider. An injunction issued by U.S. District Sam Sparks of Austin comes after he delayed making decision in January and essentially bought Planned Parenthood an extra month in the state's Medicaid program. Texas is now at least the sixth state where federal courts have kept Planned Parenthood eligible for Medicaid reimbursements for non-abortion services, although a bigger question remains over whether President...

That sentiment is echoed by former clinic manager Sue Thayer, who recalls receiving instructions from Planned Parenthood to get patients in and out...

    “We are hopeful this bill is a step towards ultimately defunding the nation's abortion giant.” In a dramatic pro-life victory, the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday to allow states to decide whether or not to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers with federal dollars. The 229-188 vote effectively repeals an Obama administration rule from December. “As a registered nurse, I know that vulnerable women seeking true comprehensive care deserve better than abortion-centric facilities like Planned Parenthood,” Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), who introduced the resolution, stated before its Feb. 16 passage. The Department of Health and Human Services issued a rule in...

    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. …

In a piece published Wednesday, New York Times Magazine columnist Ana Marie Cox interviewed Willie J. Parker, a Mississippi abortionist and former Planned Parenthood medical director, on his upcoming Life’s Work memoir. During the interview, Parker pointed to his faith as the reason he performs abortions. And while abortion is “life-ending,” he added, it isn’t “killing a person” – just a “human entity.” From the very beginning, Cox hyped that Parker’s book “is rooted” by his “moral and spiritual argument in...

    Turns out, selling abortion isn't all that different from hawking used cars. Whether it's moving a four-door sedan off the lot or removing a four-pound baby girl from the womb, the ABCs of sales don't change. New testimony shows how the Planned Parenthood's sales strategy relies on incentives, goals and quotas, explicitly prioritizing the company's bottom line over the well-being of women. Ultimately, Planned Parenthood officials know to Always Be Closing. That's a sharp contrast with Cecile Richard's talking points. The Planned Parenthood president is fond of telling lawmakers that abortion makes up just 3 percent of the company's services....

As you’ll see in the video clip, Richards manages to mention “health care” seven times in her interview with Mika Brzezinski. The word “abortion” only passes Richards’ lips twice. The first time, to insist that the federal government doesn’t pay for abortions [as if the federal funds PP receives aren’t fungible], and the second to claim that to reduce the abortion rate, more access to PP should be promoted.

LifeNews.com, commenting that blessing an abortion clinic seems "antithetical to religious beliefs about the sanctity of life," noted the new abortion facility is located next to a popular charter elementary school, much to the outrage of pro-lifers...

    DailyCaller Politics Oppo Firm Behind Trump Dossier Is Also A Hired Gun For Planned Parenthood Chuck Ross Reporter 11:33 PM 01/11/2017 The opposition research firm that hired a former British spy to dig up dirt on Donald Trump is the same shady outfit that was hired by Planned Parenthood to put a positive spin on videos showing the sale of baby parts. The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Washington D.C.-based Fusion GPS is the firm that hired Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the salacious but unsubstantiated 35-page Trump dossier that was published by BuzzFeed on...

    A radio station that covers the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area stopped running a pro-life ad this week after the abortion lobby complained. WTOP pulled an ad from the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a political group that elects and supports pro-life women, after "abortion activists demanded [they] take it off the air," SBA List wrote in an email to supporters. SBA List Press Secretary Nicole Stacy confirmed to LifeSiteNews that WTOP removed the ad "saying they received complaints." "It's a fact: Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion business," a female voice says in the 31-second ad. "Nearly a...

    As Planned Parenthood fights attacks from Congressional Republicans, more than 20 local faith leaders came together to bless the organization's newest health clinic in D.C. on Tuesday. "In almost every message to our staff, I talk about our doing sacred work," says Dr. Laura Meyers, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. "This confirms the sacredness of the work we do." The NoMa health facility, which opened in September, rang with the sound of drums as visitors entered, courtesy of all-female percussion troupe Batala Washington. Erin Schmieder, a Batala member, says the group chose to participate in the...

    In a huge victory for the pro-life advocate responsible for uncovering the grisly business of selling body parts of aborted babies, StemExpress has dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden. Daleiden was responsible for the undercover videos exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the abortion industry selling the body parts of aborted unborn children. StemExpress was a middleman that would take the body parts from Planned Parenthood and sell them at a much higher cost to scientists and researchers conducting dubious research with them. After it was exposed, StemExpress filed a lawsuit against the light and attempting to cover up...

    Thursday's New York Times has a report on how the highly suspicious dossier alleging that Donald Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents came into existence. Among the other interesting revelations was that the dubious opposition research report was put together by the research firm Fusion GPS: The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate's past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort....

    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11–StemExpress, the for-profit company that was one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest contractors to harvest and sell aborted baby body parts, is dropping its lawsuit against The Center for Medical Progress and walking away with nothing. CMP’s undercover videos exposed StemExpress in July 2015 as a major illegal vendor of aborted fetal organs and tissue from some of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country. StemExpress advertised to abortion clinics that supplying fetal tissue would be “financially profitable” and this advertisement was endorsed by Dr. Dorothy Furgerson, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte where StemExpress...

    A unified Republican government is poised to slash hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood’s annual budget — the culmination of a public relations nightmare 18 months in the making that has left the nation’s largest abortion provider more vulnerable than ever to pro-life advances.

    A Republican initiative aimed at repealing the Affordable Care Act “is about denying women healthcare” and “disempowering women,” 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 “no mandate to take away our healthcare.” “More Americans voted for Democratic leadership in the White House and the Senate than voted for the Republicans,” she said. Hogue also cited “reports” saying “that Trump voters are...

    A Republican-run House panel created to investigate Planned Parenthood and the world of fetal tissue research urged Congress on Wednesday to halt federal payments to the women’s health organization. Democrats said the GOP probe had unearthed no wrongdoing and wasted taxpayers’ money in an abusive investigation reminiscent of the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy. The Republican recommendation was included in the special committee’s final report and was no surprise. The GOP released the 471-page document just 16 days before Donald Trump becomes president, at the start of a year in which many Republicans hope Congress will finally cut off federal funds...
