    Yesterday, headlines were made when anti abortion activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were slammed with a total of 15 felonies by California prosecutors. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra alerted the world to the fact that Daleiden and Merritt invaded the privacy of medical doctors and health care providers by recording/filming activities without their consent. Daleiden labeled the charges as “bogus,” stating that they stemmed from political cronies at Planned Parenthood; Planned Parenthood refuted the argument, stating that women and healthcare providers cannot be targeted without consequence.

    This investigation was launched by pro-abortion left-wing hack Kamala Harris, then attorney general of California and longtime recipient of Planned Parenthood lucre, who parlayed her persecution of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress — replete with a police raid of Daleiden’s home in search of undercover footage — into a U.S. Senate seat last November. Not satisfied with merely persecuting Daleiden under existing law, Harris even took the extra step of collaborating with Planned Parenthood to draft new legislation that would make secretly recording medical-care providers a distinct crime. The Daleiden investigation that she began has now...

    "Shocking Video: Planned Parenthood Director Caught Admitting Babies Born Alive After Abortion are Killed" A shocking new undercover video exposes a Planned Parenthood medical director admitting that babies born alive after abortion are sometimes killed. The top Planned Parenthood official is caught on video essentially admitting that it “depends on who is in the room” as to whether or not a baby who is born alive after a failed abortion is taken to the hospital or left to die. The new undercover video shows DeShawn Taylor, previous Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Arizona and longtime abortion practitioner at Planned...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent. The charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress come eight months after similar charges were dropped in Texas. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

    The Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Silver Spring, Maryland, permanently closed on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2017, after the property’s management team realized that abortion is bad for business. Pro-life activists, led by Lauren Handy, persuaded the property management company not to renew Planned Parenthood’s lease using a narrowly-targeted educational campaign. Planned Parenthood had occupied the same office, located at 1400 Spring St. in Silver Spring, Maryland, for over 20 years, conducting surgical abortions.“The men and women who ministered at that Planned Parenthood for two decades deserve a lot of credit for their perseverance and tenacity,” said Troy Newman,...

    Sonoma tattoo artist Shotsie Gorman and his wife, Kristine, decided to get a little political for their third annual Ugly Tattoo Contest, where some 15 people competed Sunday for the rare honor of having certifiably bad body art. As in past iterations of the event, contestants were judged by a panel of tattoo artists who awarded cash for cover-up work to a few winners. But this year’s contest at B&V Whiskey Bar & Grille in Sonoma served another timely purpose: Funds from a raffle went to support Planned Parenthood Northern California, as the national organization faces the threat of losing...

    Darrell Issa, who built a reputation in Congress as an imposing conservative attack dog, has got a brand new bag. With Democrats closing in on his seat last fall, Issa mailed a campaign ad praising President Barack Obama for signing a victims rights bill Issa supported -- the same Obama he unrelentingly criticized while serving as the high-profile chairman of the House Oversight Committee. The pro-life congressman, who squeaked out reelection to a ninth term by 0.7 percentage points, told constituents at a town hall March 11 that he opposed fellow Republicans’ call to defund Planned Parenthood.

But at least one leading faction on the left is demanding Gorsuch be kept off the Supreme Court. A coalition of 55 groups who support abortion, including NARAL and Planned Parenthood, have sent a letter to Senators warning he represents a “grave danger” to “our constitutional rights.” Politico published the letter which reads in part: We implore senators to do everything necessary to block this nomination. Gorsuch has demonstrated...

On his Monday night Fox News show, Tucker Carlson asked Planned Parenthood Executive VP Dawn Laguens six ways to Sunday how she feels about aborting fetuses after five-and-a-half weeks, at which point the baby’s heartbeat can be heard. But no matter how he framed it, Laguens refused to answer, hiding behind a series of canned responses about a women’s right to choose, etc. At one point, Tucker said, “I’m asking you a human question, and hope you’ll favor me with a human answer.” View the video here.

Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) not only sought continued taxpayer funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood, but also funding for the organization’s efforts in offering “STD tasting and treatment.” “It’s not about abortion, it’s about something different,” DeFazio said on the House Floor Tuesday. “ It’s about breast exams, pap smears, physical exams, STD tasting and treatment…” STD tasting and treatment? That certainly is “something different.” Thanks anyway, but I’ll take a pass on federally funding...

    The White House, concerned about the possible political repercussions of the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood, has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions. The proposal, which was never made formally, has been rejected as an impossibility by officials at Planned Parenthood, which receives about $500 million annually in federal funding. That money helps pay for women’s health services the organization provides, not for abortion services. “Let’s be clear, federal funds already do not pay for abortions,” Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said on Monday. “Offering...

Vanity Fair recently filmed Watson giving advice remotely through an iPad at New York's Grand Central Station. For just two dollars, the magazine’s “man on the street” Derek Blasberg promised commuters that the 26-year-old actress would answer any question. And that she did. Watson offered advice on everything from relationships to New York City sightseeing. One young man praised Watson’s “HeForShe” gender equality campaign as “very inspiring” in her...

    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 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. …

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....

    Chili’s restaurants has cancelled a Planned Parenthood fundraiser that was being held at locations across two states after pro-life people complained.

    Yes, you heard me right. If you visit any Kentucky or Indiana Chili’s location between January 1st and March 31st and hand them a special group/charity coupon, 15% of the cost of your meal would go to funding the murder of local children. Earlier this week the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Indiana and Kentucky posted a promo code that their supporters could use to make sure that Chili’s would donate a portion of the cost of their meal to support PP. The flyer says that PP fans could bring the voucher to any of the named Chili’s locations and can...

    Though Planned Parenthood claims that women depend on them for prenatal care, Live Action investigators had an incredibly hard time finding facilities that offered it—though they found plenty offering abortions. Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekgiScr364Y

    Unless one counts eliminating the natal part as care that is. In the debate over defunding Planned Parenthood at federal and state levels, its executives and defenders claim doing so would be an attack on core health care for women, including prenatal care for mothers-to-be. Live Action, which has long opposed federal funds for the nation’s largest abortion chain, decided to test that claim by calling 97 different PP clinics around the country. Grand total that provide prenatal care? FIVE!

    President Donald Trump today signed an executive order to defund International Planned Parenthood. Most pro-life Americans are anxiously awaiting Congress to pass a bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

When pro-abortion former President Barack Obama took office, Obama overturned a policy that prevented funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas. The Mexico City Policy covered over $400 million in federal funds, part of which flowed...
