    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- 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 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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...

Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, sent out a fund-raising request this week one pro-life advocate says is grotesque. Richards honored mother's day by sharing part of an editorial her daughter wrote saying she got her pro-abortion views from her mother and grandmother, former Texas Gov. Ann Richards.

    Madison — In a raucous clash on the state Senate floor Wednesday that recalled the bitter divides of 2011, Republicans abruptly cut off debate and forced a vote mandating that women seeking abortions get ultrasounds. The morning's brief floor session included sharp exchanges and one senator claiming abortions "became the thing to do" in the 1960s. Democrats protested the bill's merits and the process by which it was passed, saying Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau and his fellow Republicans were trampling on democracy by ending debate after about 20 minutes. "My first advice to the majority leader is...

Komen called its decision to pull out of the event one that “was not made lightly, as this bold and empowering event has touched the lives of thousands of participants.” Spokeswoman Andrea Rader cited economic uncertainty and competition from other charities as factors in the decision — the same reasons Komen has cited for the drop in...

Timothy Liveright worked at the Wilmington clinic until April of this year, which is when two former nurses from the clinic went to the media, telling a story of a dangerous, “meat-market” style of performing abortions in which women were treated as cattle and profit was king. During a senate hearing yesterday, one of the nurses described the clinic as an “absolute nightmare” and...

But, one Planned Parenthood official recently offered up a blasphemous prayer using religious terms for it. As Jim Sedlak of STOPP International noticed in a news report, the pro-abortion official referred to the place built for the purpose of killing unborn children in abortion as “sacred and holy ground.” “Planned Parenthood is so much more than people think, and it is all of our job to tell everyone that it...

On May 18, Jackson became the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia in this November's 2013 elections. An important detail in this drama is that Bishop Jackson is African-American. Much more alarming, Jackson has been leading a hard-hitting campaign to call on Blacks to leave the Democrat Party. Jackson argues passionately that no Christian -- Black, Hispanic, or Caucasian -- can remain any longer in the Democratic Party that booed God at the Democrat National Convention in 2012...

It provides the ammunition that concerned citizens need to get Planned Parenthood out of local schools and community organizations, and is an indispensable aid in defunding the predatory organization. The report drives home the fact that the abortion giant is...

It charges money for contraception—big money—pocketing hundreds of millions in contraception cash from women and taxpayers....

Yes, they restrict our behavior in ways that are sometimes inconvenient. Yet in doing so, they intrinsically call us and our communities toward a life that we might not otherwise choose on our own. What's more, they amplify the need for repentance and reconciliation, rather than watering down such a need through the "pragmatic" concession to the fallenness of the world. We may occasionally fail to meet them. But confronting our...

    To President Barack Obama and many other Democrats, Europe continues to exercise something of a fatal attraction. The “European dream” embraced by these politicians — as well as by many pundits, academics and policy analysts — usually consists of an America governed by an expanded bureaucracy, connected by high-speed trains and following a tough green energy policy. One hopes that the current crisis gripping the E.U. will give even the most devoted Europhiles pause about the wisdom of such mimicry. Yet the deadliest European disease the U.S. must avoid is that of persistent demographic decline. The gravity of Europe’s demographic...

    New Hampshire has an Executive Council, with “the authority and responsibility, together with the Governor, over the administration of the affairs of the State as defined in the New Hampshire Constitution, the New Hampshire statutes, and the advisory opinions of the New Hampshire Supreme Court and the Attorney General,” as explained by its website. However, no matter what any statutes might say, it does not have the power to override the imperial judgment of Barack Obama… and neither do you, taxpayer. The Executive Council recently decided not to renew New Hampshire’s contract with Planned Parenthood, an eighteen-month contract worth a...

    Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood, sent out an email asking: “Why is Rick Perry so cruel to women?” Richards complained, among other things, about Gov. Perry’s support of the Texas law that would require abortion providers to show an expectant mother a sonogram of her baby, along with a description and the heartbeat. All facts. No opinions. Just the information that correctly and completely explains the procedure as required for a fully educated choice. But Richards attacked these measures as “burdens” and “dangerous.” Why is Richards so upset? How is looking at a “clump of cells” a burden?...

    The Department of Justice is now prosecuting a 79-year-old grandfather. The reason: Richard Retta walks alongside women on the sidewalk outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility and offers women hope that they can carry their babies to term. “They go in and they’re kind of sullen in what they’re doing, and I’m sure there’s a lot of sorrow there,” Retta says in a short video by Pro-Life Unity. “But when they change their mind, most of the times they’re smiling, they’re happy. And they’re willing to talk to us,” he says. This is the first time, in over a decade...

    Pink ribbons are cute. They have become very trendy. Everyone has caught on to them, too. A couple of airlines wear pink during October…some yogurt companies have pink ribbons on their merchandise…everyone is doing it. Well, not me.I hate breast cancer. I REALLY hate it. Breast cancer stole one of the most important people in my life from me…my father’s twin sister…my aunt. Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. My cousin died of breast cancer. Breast cancer is like a terrible virus that keeps sweeping through my family. And like all viruses, you can’t get rid of them; they...

The sexual rights guide “Exclaim!” calls for a cornucopia of sexuality and gender protections and entitlements under the guise of international law. “Governments must respect, protect and fulfill all sexual rights for young people,” the publication states. The guide is designed as a tool to help young people become sex advocates....
