    Last summer, we noted a crazy case in which the famous Hollywood actor James Woods sued a random Twitter troll who had been making fun of Woods. The anonymous troll.., mocked some of Woods' own nonsensical tweets about Caitlyn Jenner and Planned Parenthood by saying: "@RealJamesWoods @benshapiro cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting." -- Abe List (@abelist) July 15, 2015 Then, earlier this month, there was a hearing, and LA Superior Court judge Mel Recana, appeared to side with Abe List, issuing a 10-page tentative ruling dismissing the case. In that tentative ruling, Judge Recana noted: The court...

    News outlets rushed to cover recent charges out of Houston against the Center for Medical Progress. But will they cover the Center’s latest video? Doubtful. On Monday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a new undercover video in an effort to further expose the abortion industry’s role in harvesting aborted baby parts. The video captured National Abortion Federation (NAF) representatives calling money for tissue a “win-win” and expressed relief that CMP could rid them of aborted baby leftovers after trouble with other “disposal services.” MRC Culture watched both CMP’s shorter video and full footage video for this story.

    A Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located on Havendale Blvd in Winter Haven, Florida, has closed its doors as of February 1, 2016. Situated inside Spring Lake Square, the Planned Parenthood sat among restaurants, a movie theater, and businesses that fill the earth-tone-colored suburban strip mall. Sidewalk Advocates for Life, which reported the closure, shared that this is the first abortion facility in the group’s short 22-month-history to shut down. The group encouraged its counselors to continue dedicating their time to counseling abortion-minded women, and to advocate on the sidewalks for the preborn. Sidewalk Advocates for Life’s Winter Haven, Florida, program...

    The Ohio House of Representatives has made its final vote to approve HB 294, which forbids state health funds from going to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider in the state. If it is signed, which Ohio Governor John Kasich is expected to do, it will cut off the $1.3 million that the state’s affiliate of the abortion giant currently receives per year through the Ohio Department of Health. The same money will still go to support HIV testing, cancer screenings, and violence-against-women programs in the state, just distributed through providers not affiliated with abortion. The bill adds to...

    The biggest problem with Rep. Paul's (R-Texas) latest comments on immigration is that they are NOT just some ad hoc thoughts tossed off carelessly at some speaking event. These are engraved in a brand new book. Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008. That had earned him a C-minus on our 2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances Report Card. Not impressive, but the third best (behind Rep. Bachman with a B-minus...

    Gloria Steinem doesn’t have her facts straight, but don’t expect the media to call her out on it. On Tuesday, feminist activist Gloria Steinem appeared as a guest on PBS’ Tavis Smiley. During the show, Steinem praised abortion for giving her “my life” and bashed the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s practice of aborted baby parts. She blamed the “attack” on Planned Parenthood on everything from the “ultra-right wing” to “patriarchy” and a “long-term racist system.” Host Tavis Smiley hailed Steinem as a “feminist icon” and “renowned social activist” before asking about her newly published book, My Life on the Road....

    During her speech at a Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma fundraiser on September 21, liberal feminist icon Gloria Steinem broached an uncomfortable topic for abortion proponents: the pandemic of missing girls. In 2011, that number was estimated to be 160 million. In her book, Unnatural selection: Choosing boys over girls, and the consequences of a world full of men, pro-abortion author Mara Hvistendahl, a correspondent for Science magazine, blamed ultrasound technology and abortion for the gendercide. This is simply common sense. I give Steinem points for raising the issue, particularly at a Planned Parenthood event, since it was only last...

Terry Yates, the attorney for David Daleiden, who faces a felony and a misdemeanor charge, said he is prepared to head to trial if he can't quash the indictment and isn't interested in a probation offer that would keep Daleiden out of prison. Daleiden surrendered to authorities Thursday, posted $3,000 bond and made two court appearances. "I'm very grateful for all the support from the public," he said afterward. Sandra Merritt,...

Despite the repeated urging of pro-life lawmakers and religious groups in California to act on that promise, the administration appears to be doing nothing. The troubling situation began in 2014 when the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state to begin covering surgical abortions immediately. Even churches are not exempt from funding abortions. The...

    Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin (R) has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, ordering their new Louisville, KY, abortion facility to stop committing abortions due to a permit application which was “deficient for multiple reasons” pertaining to hospital agreement and ambulatory transport preparations for complications. “There is no tolerance whatsoever for people in the commonwealth of Kentucky disregarding the law,” Bevin told reporters, accusing Planned Parenthood of illegally performing abortions without proper credentials. “They are unlicensed, they are doing it knowingly, and they are going to be brought to justice on this front.” A Kentucky new station...

    Just days after a Texas grand jury ignored evidence of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies’ body parts and indited whistle blower David Daleiden instead, a pro-life group released new documents that appear to show the abortion chain billing for aborted babies’ body parts. Attorney Brisco Cain, who represents Operation Rescue, released a series of invoices between Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast and the University of Texas Medical Branch on Thursday, showing charges ranging from $1,500 to $3,750 for “consent payments” that Planned Parenthood supplied to university researchers. “Consent payments” mean aborted babies’ body parts, according to Planned Parenthood Gulf...

    Though often under-reported in the mainstream media, pro-life advocates who protest outside of abortion centers often are targets of harassment and sometimes violence. On Wednesday in Arizona, pro-life protesters were targeted by a man and his two teenage children in a drive-by incident, according to 12 News in Phoenix. Police arrested 34-year-old David Turner after he allegedly had his 14-year-old daughter use a squirt gun to spray tomato juice from his car onto pro-lifers standing outside a Tempe Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the report states. According to authorities, the father bought a water gun and tomato juice on Wednesday morning...

    Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin (R) claimed Thursday that Planned Parenthood is performing illegal and unlicensed abortions in Kentucky.

    ...Mr. Schaffer said shortly after Planned Parenthood hired him last summer, he initiated a "dialog" with prosecutors in Harris County, which encompasses most of Houston, about the details of the case, and maintained communication throughout the investigation, which lasted two months. Schaffer said his clients volunteered documentation and invited prosecutors to question employees and tour its Houston clinic. Also critical to the investigation was the grand jury's focus, which changed course and started looking at the anti-abortion activists, Schaffer said on a conference call with reporters, adding he received that information from a prosecutor...

    HOUSTON -- Lawyers for anti-abortion activists, including one who was a leading figure in the defeat of the city's anti-discrimination ordinance last year, on Wednesday called this week's indictments of Planned Parenthood critics legally flawed. They said they would ask the district attorney not to proceed with the case. (snip) Mr. Woodfill and another lawyer representing Mr. Daleiden and Ms. Merritt, Terry W. Yates, called for another grand jury to look into Planned Parenthood's actions. "We believe that this is a runaway grand jury that has acted contrary to the law," Mr. Woodfill said. "Instead of indicting the wrongdoers here,...

    **SNIP** There have also been concerns following the discovery that a prosecutor in the Harris County district attorney's Division of Criminal Family Law also serves as a director on the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. According to reports, Lauren Reeder told District Attorney Devon Anderson earlier this year about her work with the abortion giant in order to be "transparent." However, she also said that she didn't see a conflict of interest in the situation. "I don't think there's any conflict in my dual roles in two separate organizations," Reeder told reporters.

Deleiden and Sandra S. Merritt for tampering with government records, according to the New York Times. The grand jurors said Planned Parenthood was not guilty of any wrongdoing. According to Gilbert, Bishop has voted six times to defund Planned Parenthood. Gilbert, an actress and former...
