    In the wake of the latest instance of a faithful son of the Church pointing out that the papal emperor has no clothes, we have been treated to yet another flurry of loud and aggressive assertions that there is nothing to see here, no confusion really exists, and can everyone please stop acting childish and just move along? Meanwhile, that faithful son — Fr. Thomas Weinandy — has been forced out of his position as a doctrinal consultant to the USCCB, while their president, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, had the audacity to talk about his “departure” under the auspices of “an opportunity...
  • Victory for Austria's new anti-EU leader and surge in support for anti-immigrant party

    Sebastian Kurz's election victory last night has sent shockwaves through Europe as it appears he may seek a coalition with the country's anti-immigration Freedom Party. The Eurosceptic leader of Austria's right-leaning People's Party has declared victory in a national election that puts him on track to become the world's youngest leader. Kurz, 31, fell well short of a majority and may be looking to strike a deal with another party. The Freedom Party (FPO) got around 26 percent of votes in Sunday's parliamentary vote, boosted by a European migration crisis in 2015 that affected Austria and also led Kurz to...
  • Planned Parenthood Doc Caught Saying She’d “Break the Baby’s Neck” if Baby Born Alive After Abortion

    Planned Parenthood abortionists in St. Paul, Minnesota would “break the baby’s neck” if the child was born alive, according to a new video just released by Pro-Life Action Ministries. This would be a violation of both federal and Minnesota law. In the video, a former Planned Parenthood client says that when she went to Planned Parenthood earlier this year for a late-term abortion (at 22 weeks, 1 day), she asked the two abortionists, “If you guys were to take him out right now while he’s still, his heart rate is still, you know, going, what would you guys do?”

    If you abort over 325,000 human beings a year, you’re going to abort the facts, too.One would think that actual parenthood would be part of Planned Parenthood’s mission. The abortion organization never mentions “mom”, “dad”, “father” or “parent” ever in their latest Annual Report. They do mention “mother” one time, in a bizarre quote that sums up the political group’s warped perspective on motherhood: “I was resolved to seek out the root of evil, to do something to change the destiny of mothers, whose miseries were as vast as the sky.” These words are from Planned Parenthood’s eugenicist founder, Margaret Sanger,...

    Planned Parenthood said on Thursday it would shutter four of its 12 clinics in Iowa as a result of a measure backed by Republican Governor Terry Branstad that blocks public money for family planning services to abortion providers. Health centers in Burlington, Keokuk and Sioux City will close on June 30 and one in Quad Cities soon after as a result of losing $2 million in funds under the new measure, said Susan Allen, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. The four clinics served 14,676 patients in the last three years, she said, including many rural and poor...

    At the 44th annual March for Life this past January, Vice President Pence told thousands of eager, dedicated marchers that “life is winning again in America.” However, the Republican Congress’ capitulation on Planned Parenthood funding in the latest round of budget talks tells quite a different tale. Following a national election cycle in which the pro-life cause became a conspicuous and consequential issue in the wake of the Republican Party’s trifold victory in the House of Representatives, Senate, and Oval Office, the GOP is already squandering the momentum of that victory by passing a budget resolution that … wait for...

    It has become sadly unoriginal for abortion doctors to use religion as an excuse for killing unborn babies. Mississippi abortion doctor Willie Parker regularly defends his abortion practice with religious references, claiming his abortion career is "a ministry" and the parable of the Good Samaritan inspired him to abort unborn babies. Young abortion doctor-in-training Carolyn Payne also recently wrote a column, claiming that her Christian faith motivated her to pursue a career as an abortionist. And in November, pro-lifers in Chicago filmed an unnamed abortionist as she knelt and prayed on the sidewalk, thanking God that she can abort unborn...

    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,...

    A leading anti-abortion group is publicly pressuring two vulnerable Senate Democrats to get on board with the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Susan B. Anthony List launched radio ads Monday in North Dakota, targeting Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, and in Indiana, targeting Sen. Joe Donnelly. Its aim: To persuade both Democrats, who are up for reelection in 2018, to support a measure blocking most Medicaid reimbursements from Planned Parenthood clinics for one year.

    Chili’s restaurants has cancelled a Planned Parenthood fundraiser that was being held at locations across two states after pro-life people complained. In an exclusive report a LifeNews.com yesterday, Chili’s restaurants in two states were coming under fire from pro-life advocates for giving 15% of patron’s meal purchases to the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Earlier this week the Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliate in Indiana and Kentucky posted a promotional code its supporters could use to request that Chili’s donate 15% of the pre-tax meal purchase to benefit the abortion corporation. According to the image the abortion company posted, its supporters...

(Bill Diss) Bill Diss was notified on Tuesday after the last student left his class that he was being placed immediately on administrative leave “pending a recommendation to the superintendent that you be dismissed from your employment with Portland public schools for reasons that have been discussed with you.” The mild-mannered Mr. Diss told STOPP...

    We recently received a disappointing ruling in the case of Bill Diss, a Portland, Oregon public school teacher who was fired after he objected to facilitating a Planned Parenthood sex education program in his classroom. The judge granted the defendant’s motion for summary judgment, which means the case cannot go before a jury. Life Legal is appealing the decision.Bill Diss became “enemy number one” with his local Planned Parenthood affiliate when he led opposition to a new PP mega-facility in downtown Portland.When Planned Parenthood employees wanted to come into Diss’ classroom to recruit students for their “Teen Outreach Program,” or...

    CMP’s undercover videos of Planned Parenthood’s senior level leadership clearly show the nation’s biggest abortion provider deeply engaged in the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts. As the TX Office of the Inspector General’s letter makes clear, the findings to date of the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the state of Texas’ own investigation confirm what is shown in the videos and document legal and medical violations at Planned Parenthood even more widespread than initially recognized. In Texas, Planned Parenthood commits almost twice as many abortions each year than the...

    Cincinnati, OH — Since October 28, 2016, city sewer vehicles have been seen outside the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. First, Roto-Rooter was called out, but the problem seemed to be beyond their ability to solve. Next came the city sewer trucks, which put equipment down a manhole across the street from Planned Parenthood. On November 10, another vehicle from the city sewer department was called out. This time, workers opened a manhole in the sidewalk directly in front of Planned Parenthood, closing the sidewalk. While we don’t know for sure what the sewer problem is near Planned...

    In a wide-ranging interview on the racial climate in America, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson brought up Planned Parenthood’s unscrupulous founding, saying the organization was created to “exterminate blacks.” Mr. Watson said black support for Planned Parenthood is “ironic,” given that the organization was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in order to control “unfit” populations.
