  • Planned Parenthood facility in Iowa officially shuts down

    05/04/2016 5:17:06 PM PDT · by Morgana · 17 replies ^ | May 3 2016 | Becky Yeh
    A Planned Parenthood facility in Iowa has officially shut down after it announced its closure earlier this year. The location in Dubuque, which offered medication abortions only, reported a drop in clientele as reason for closure. The Dubuque location was in operation for eight years, and it is among almost a dozen satellite Planned Parenthood facilities to shutter in recent years. In 2014, Planned Parenthood closed facilities in Red Oak and Creston; and over the years, the abortion giant shut down similar facilities in Ankeny, Fort Dodge, Fort Madison, Knoxville, Newton, Mount Pleasant Storm Lake, Spencer and Washington. Dubuque County...

    So many organizations and entities have noble and good beginnings. For instance “The Ivies” and the Seven Sisters colleges, most of which were either Christian schools or seminaries that, over the last century, have departed faith moorings.Other organizations have nothing but evil inceptions; case in point Planned Parenthood.The original intent of Planned Parenthood has been veiled with a facade of honorable work, but the truth is despicable to the core.Planned Parenthood’s predecessor, The American Birth Control League, was founded by Nazi-inspiration Margaret Sanger, the godmother of modern eugenics, in 1921. As I wrote in the article, Margaret Sanger’s Dream Come...

    Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments for Whole Womens Health vs. Hellerstedt. The case revolves around whether or not ambulatory surgical center regulations for abortion centers and hospital admitting privileges for abortionists creates an undue burden. The claim has been made that over 20 Texas abortion facilities closed, directly because of H.B. 2, and abortion activists have taken up the phrase Stop the Sham. Its because of pro-lifers and their anti-abortion laws that abortion centers are closing, they say. But if they want to know the real reason so many are closing, theyll need to look in their own backyard....

    Judge Scalia's death put Roe v. Wade back in the conversation. After all, abortion and that 1973 opinion are always foremost in the minds of U.S. Senators confirming judicial nominees. One side is looking for a justice to save it and the other side wants one to overturn it.   Nevertheless, abortion clinics are closing across the country and it has nothing to do with Roe v. Wade. It's about states restricting the clinics, as we see in this report: At no time since before 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion, has a woman’s ability to terminate a pregnancy been more dependent on...

    When Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin discovered a new Planned Parenthood clinic was doing abortions without a license in January, his administration moved quickly to shut down the abortion operation. On Thursday, Bevin announced his next step to hold the abortion clinic accountable. The state filed a lawsuit this week against Planned Parenthood after it allegedly performed 23 illegal abortions at its new Louisville facility without a license, according to the Courier Journal. The Louisville abortion clinic opened in December and applied for a license to do abortions from the state; however, in late January, Bevin’s office found out that the...

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.
