    Hundreds of women called their local Planned Parenthood clinics Monday to schedule a mammogram, but none were able to successfully secure an appointment. That’s because the nation’s largest abortion provider doesn’t actually offer them. The phone calls were part of “Schedule Your Mammogram Day,” an event organized by And Then There Were None, a pro-life organization, to raise awareness of Planned Parenthood’s deceptive claims on women’s health.The misconception that the nation’s largest abortion provider has been offering mammograms is a common claim, repeated by the media. During the Miss America competition last week, Miss Tennessee, Hannah Robinson, parroted one of...

    The surging candidate’s remarks on Planned Parenthood drew Steinem’s ire. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem blasted Carly Fiorina in a post on her Facebook page, saying the presidential hopeful’s commentary on Planned Parenthood at the Republican debate last week “was a 100 percent lie.” “I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes,” Fiorina railed during the debate. “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.” Fiorina was referring to a series of “sting” videos produced by the Center for Medical...

    It’s probably true that Republicans won’t be able to force Planned Parenthood to shut down its human organ harvesting business. Not this year. Maybe not any year. And it is probably true that Republicans won’t be able to stop the flow of over $500 million to the abortion conglomerate. At least not until the GOP builds a veto/filibuster-proof majority and wins the presidency. So, not soon. Maybe never. And it’s undoubtedly true that flailing, pointing at shiny objects, and creating unrealistic expectations is counterproductive in the long run. But here are some other things that are also true.

    ( – Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opposed the Catholic Church for decades because of its moral teachings and its theology in general, to the point that in 1960, when John F. Kennedy, a Catholic, ran for president, Sanger said if he were elected, she would “find another place to live.”Sanger (1879-1966), in her many writings and speeches, frequently attacked the Catholic Church, describing it as among the “arch-enemies to hinder the progress of enlightenment” and determined to destroy America’s “liberties” and establish its own “rules & dominion.”  In early July 1960, when then-Senator John F. Kennedy (D-Mass.) was about...

    Earlier today, I noted that Los Angeles Times reporter Maria L. La Ganga compared the heroic undercover work done by investigators at the Center for Medical Progress to the 2004 efforts of the Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth. She meant it as a negative, claiming that the Swift Vets' assertions about Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's service in Vietnam and his antiwar activities after he returned home are "considered by many one of the ugliest, most unfair attacks in recent political memory." She even claimed — knowingly engaging in falsehood, in my opinion — that "the Swift boat claims...

    The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee is launching an investigation into the anti-abortion-rights group that has targeted Planned Parenthood with a series of undercover videos. Rep.

The Center, led by the anti-abortion activist David Daleiden, established a fake company to gain entry into clinics and meetings with Planned Parenthood officials — a move that Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi...

Holly O'Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

Rick Scott’s (R) health agency, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) originally said that three Planned Parenthood clinics were performing second-trimester abortions despite only being licensed for first-trimester procedures. The abortions were performed around 13 weeks of pregnancy, which the state said was after the 12-week cutoff for the first trimester. But Planned Parenthood countered that it is using a definition of the first trimester as within 14 weeks of the woman's last menstrual...

California law is also clear: “The rights to medical treatment of an infant prematurely born alive in the course of an abortion shall be the same as the rights of an infant of similar medical status prematurely born spontaneously.” But that’s not what happened. StemExpress wanted to “procure a brain,” so the baby had to die in gruesome fashion: It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. It’s nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids. And its mouth was pronounced. And then since the fetus was so intact, she said, “Okay, this...

    The Gospel of life must be proclaimed, and human life defended in all places and all times. The arena for moral responsibility includes not only the halls of government, but the voting booth as well. (American Bishops, “Living the Gospel of Life”)by Bishop Thomas Tobin: Prior to the recent primary election I received a heartfelt letter from a member of the Diocese who had just discovered that the candidate for whom she had intended to vote was “pro-choice and for same-sex marriage.” She wrote: “Dear Bishop Tobin, for whom do I vote? Do I vote at all?”I responded to my...

    Washington, DC ( -- A further examination of the new annual report Planned Parenthood recently released finds the abortion business is still the largest in the United States. As in previous years, the number of abortions it does has gone up and roughly 25 percent of all abortions in the United States are done at Planned Parenthood centers. The report shows that Planned Parenthood did 289,750 abortions, an increase over the 264,943 abortions it did during the 2005-2006 fiscal year. That's a whopping nine percent increase even though the number of abortions nationally are on the decline. "It claims to...

    LONDON, May 21, 2008 ( - The vice-chairman of the British All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group (APPPLG), told the House of Commons yesterday that she is pro-abortion, but wishes women would choose life. The debates and the campaigns surrounding the Labour government's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill have exposed the lack of an authentic pro-life viewpoint of some members of the APPPLG. They have also led some to question the integrity of the organisation as the pro-life voice of Parliament. The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has called for the immediate resignation of Mrs. Claire Curtis-Thomas, the Labour...

    Planned Parenthood Mysteries & Scandals by: Malcolm A. Kline, April 30, 2008 The once-glowing image of Planned Parenthood (PP) has become tarnished in the wake of revelations that PP employees eagerly sought donations to abort black babies in several large states, as a reporter for the student newspaper at UCLA discovered. Now, black pro-lifers, many of them ministers, are taking on the abortion provider, ubiquitous on many college campuses, although the dissenters’ efforts receive little media attention. “Planned Parenthood plants itself in inner city neighborhoods frequently next to schools,” Day Gardner of Black Americans for Life said in front of...

"It's true that I have had lots of rewarding moments in my career. So did my mother," Cecile wrote in the...

    Led by state representative Bob McDermott, outraged parents in Hawaii continue to fight valiantly to get an explicit sex instruction program coauthored by Planned Parenthood out of their middle schools. Rep. McDermott has just released his second meticulously researched report detailing the impropriety of the curriculum and violations of state and federal law regarding the testing and implementation of the program. At the same time, television ads have begun airing that feature a Hawaiian grandmother extolling the virtues of Pono Choices—dubbed Porno Choices by those who are familiar with the content. It is the first instance of which we are...
