    A group of Pennsylvania parents expressed outrage this week after learning that their seventh-grade students were taught a “graphic” sex education lesson by a group that partners with Planned Parenthood. KDKA News reports parents at the Hazelwood location of Propel Charter School in Pittsburgh said their young students were told graphic details about oral sex during a recent science class. The parents recently met with the principal to discuss their concerns. A parent who asked to remain anonymous told the news outlet what her daughter told her about the class: “‘We said we didn’t know what it meant, and he...

    LOS ANGELES, California, May 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- California’s Democratic Attorney General Xavier Becerra is leading a coalition of 20 attorneys general, representing 19 states plus Washington, D.C., opposing a Trump administration rule change that prioritizes abstinence education over contraception distribution in family planning funds. In February, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that abstinence messages and natural family planning methods would be given priority in distributing $260 million worth of family planning grants. The announcement did not mention artificial birth control. In response, Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, Utah, and Wisconsin, as well as the American...

    A taxpayer-subsidized university in New York City has established an 'exclusive fellowship for graduate students' in public health with the abortion provider Planned Parenthood during the 2018-2019 school year. While Planned Parenthood/NYC is attempting to code their work associated with the position as being a type of social justice effort, previous efforts by organizations to promote “reproductive justice” have shown that the term is nothing more than a phrase for continuously promoting the acceptance and legality of abortion. Though the position is only 'part-time', it provides several cushy benefits to students who are selected. ... In addition to being paid...

    Don’t ever threaten the liberals’ imagined right to abort. It might just be unsafe. After the Trump administration proposed that health clinics such as Planned Parenthood could not accept federal funds and provide abortions, feminists and media figures raised an uproar. Planned Parenthood, the most recognized name in baby-killing, (with 321,384 abortions in the year 2016 alone), was faced with a choice: to stop providing abortions or stop accepting federal funding (in 2016, they received $543.7 million in federal funding). Comedian Sarah Silverman tweeted, “Time to expose all the abortions paid for by the hypocrite politicians that vote for this....
  • President Donald Trump Defunds Planned Parenthood, Will Cut Almost $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding

    President Donald Trump Defunds Planned Parenthood, Will Cut Almost $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding The Trump administration is announcing new regulations today to partially defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses of tens of millions of tax dollars. This is the second time Trump has taken steps to revoke taxpayer funding for the nation’s biggest abortion business — after yanking taxpayer from from International Planned Parenthood during his first week in office. The United States spends about $260 million in Title X funds annually for family planning for low-income individuals, and Planned Parenthood is a huge recipient of those funds,...

    National Review ^ | 05/18/2018 | Jack Crowe
    The Trump administration is set to announce a new regulation Friday afternoon that will prohibit abortion providers, as well as organizations that refer women to those providers, from accessing Title X family planning funds, the New York Times reports. The policy represents a return to a similar Reagan-era rule that required organizations that received federal family planning dollars to maintain a “physical separation” and “separate personnel” dividing their abortion centers from other services. Critics allege the Trump administration’s rule is actually more burdensome than its predecessor because it targets organizations that refer women seeking abortions to providers, as well as...

    Townhall ^ | Lauretta Brown
    Cecile Richards, former President of Planned Parenthood, and Ilyse Hogue, head of the abortion advocacy group NARAL, both had harsh words for President Trump Wednesday over his comments that MS-13 “aren’t people. These are animals.” Trump's remarks were widely taken by many in the media to be referring to all illegal immigrants. While Richards, NARAL, and Planned Parenthood all seemed to be interpreting the remarks to mean all illegal immigrants, the full context of the remarks seems to show that the president was referring to the violent MS-13 gang. Richards, the recently retired head of the nation’s largest abortion provider,...

    Despite continuous promises to the pro-life cause, Republican budgets still fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of over $500 million each year. Efforts to decertify the nation’s largest abortion-mill chain ran into stiff opposition during the ObamaCare repeal effort from Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, and Democrats torpedoed an attempt to include it in the budget agreement. The legislative path seems all but dead unless Republicans can win enough Senate seats to overcome a filibuster as well as hold onto the House in November — an outcome with odds on the order of having the Cleveland Browns win the...

    The Trump administration may take action to cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood as a result of pressure from congressional Republicans and anti-abortion lobbyists. Opponents of abortion have launched an all-out campaign urging the administration to bring back Reagan-era abortion restrictions on federal family planning dollars that would target Planned Parenthood. The regulations would ban organizations that receive family planning dollars under the Title X Family Planning Program, which funds organizations providing services like birth control to low-income women and men, from promoting abortion or referring patients for abortions. Former President Reagan first issued the regulations, which Democrats describe as...

    Planned Parenthood, an organization funded by globalist murderers and your tax dollars to help kill children, has the audacity to send out Mother’s Day tweets on Twitter. The irony is beyond comprehension at this point, with an organization that funds and assists in the abortion of children to send out tweets recognizing “Mother's Day,” the exact holiday in which they help to destroy by murdering the innocent. It's beyond disrespectful for Planned Parenthood to even consider sending such a tweet on the one day that's meant for mothers to recognize their hard work and responsibilities, saying thank you to all...

For the past few years, four other faith leaders and I have served as volunteer chaplains. We’re proud to be part of a highly professional and highly caring health care team. Along with our Planned Parenthood colleagues, we’re committed to showing care and respect for the whole person, including her (or his) physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. As chaplains, we undertake this work not in spite of, but because of our faith and values. There are some who assume that if...

    Former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said in an interview published this week that she thinks conservatives have an “advantage” because they are “so much more willing to lie, cheat, steal, deceive, break the law — tactics that frankly we don’t use in the progressive community.” The Department of Justice confirmed in December that Planned Parenthood is under federal investigation in the wake of allegations the abortion chain harvests the body parts of aborted babies to sell for a profit. In an interview with Salon, Amanda Marcotte asked Richards why she believes “nonprofits like Planned Parenthood” have experienced an “escalation...

    “I like you. You and me, we’re going to be best friends.” It is early January, and Eric Schneiderman is sitting in his 25th-floor office above Lower Manhattan, doing his best Donald Trump impression, puckering his lips into a duck face, scrunching up his nose and lowering his voice into something that resembles the president’s outer-borough growl. Schneiderman is recalling his meeting with Trump in 2010. Back then, Schneiderman was running for attorney general of New York, and Trump was still in his pre-birther, reality TV host phase. Trump had donated money to one of Schneiderman’s opponents in the Democratic...

    Reuters ^ | 2 May 2018 | Barbara Goldberg
    (Reuters) - Iowa’s Republican-controlled legislature passed the most restrictive abortion ban in the United States on Wednesday, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant. The Senate voted 29-17 to pass the House of Representatives-approved bill, according to the legislature’s online voting tallies. The bill now goes to Republican Governor Kim Reynolds, an abortion opponent, who has not said publicly whether she will sign it into law. The legislation is aimed at triggering a challenge to Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark decision which...

    Cecile Richards officially left her position as the CEO of America’s largest abortion business on Monday. Richards announced her plans to resign from Planned Parenthood in January, barely a month after the U.S. Department of Justice said it is investigating whether the abortion chain illegally sold aborted baby body parts. Planned Parenthood has not announced Richards’ replacement at the time of the writing of this article. “For 12 yrs, Mom has put her heart & soul into running Planned Parenthood,” Richards’ daughter Lily Adams tweeted Monday. “On her last day, it’s impossible to express what this org has meant to...

    On behalf of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, the ACLU has filed a lawsuit contesting these states imposition of unwanted regulations. ACLU spokesperson Bertram Petty described these states’ oversight as “onerous, intrusive, and crippling. It is a blatant attempt to drive Planned Parenthood out of the medical marketplace.” The onerous regulations include requirements that “facilities must meet minimum sanitation standards. The staff must be qualified to perform the procedures used, including how to handle emergency equipment. Patients must be monitored after anesthesia. Follow-up care for complications and infection control must be in place. Informed consent must be obtained and...

    Twenty Republican-led states are seeking to temporarily invalidate former President Barack Obama’s health care law while their larger lawsuit against it proceeds. In a February suit, Texas and Wisconsin led a coalition arguing that the Affordable Care Act is no longer constitutional after the Republican-backed tax overhaul eliminated fines for not having health care coverage. Sixteen states with Democratic governors later sought to intervene. …
