  • Seattle Storm holds pregame rally supporting Planned Parenthood, amid mild protest

    While the Seattle Storm’s players warmed up inside a quiet KeyArena, the area surrounding the building was crowded with members of the community who supported the team’s partnership with Planned Parenthood, and a few who opposed the rally. The Storm’s WNBA game against the Chicago Sky on Tuesday night featured an ownership-led initiative in support of the nonprofit that provides reproductive health care. This marks the first time a sports franchise has partnered with Planned Parenthood, according to a spokesperson from the organization. In addition to an online auction, the Storm pledged to give $5 from each ticket sold to...
  • Casually Worded CBS Article Depicts Ugly Truth: Iceland Eliminates People with Down Syndrome

    National Review ^ | 08/16/2017 | by ALEXANDRA DESANCTIS
    CBS News reported earlier this week that Iceland is leading the world in “eradicating Down syndrome births.” One might be forgiven for assuming that Iceland has developed an innovative treatment for the chromosomal disorder. It turns out Iceland’s solution is much simpler, and much more sinister: using prenatal testing and abortion to systematically exterminate children with Down syndrome. This isn’t progress; it’s eugenics. Prenatal testing is optional in Iceland, but the government mandates that doctors notify women of that option. About 85 percent of expectant mothers undergo the test, and close to 100 percent of those women choose to...
  • Iceland’s Down Syndrome Numbers Are Down Due to Abortion

    The majority of females in Iceland choose to murder their unborn child if the down syndrome prenatal test comes back positive, which has led to almost no one left on the island with Down syndrome. Key thing to remember: The people on the island are NOT eliminating Down syndrome. They are murdering people with Down syndrome.In 2009, Thordis Ingadottir became pregnant with her third child when she was 40. The test showed that her child had a slim chance of having Down syndrome, but Agusta was born with it. Only three children born in 2009 in Iceland had Down...

    Rosie O’Donnell urged her female fans to start their own party if the Democratic Party backs candidates who don’t support abortion rights. "WOMEN SHOULD FORM OUR OWN PARTY IF DEMS DO THIS #dontYOUdare" she tweeted Tuesday. O'Donnell's tweet was in response to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján revealing there will be no "litmus test" for Democratic candidates going into the 2018 midterm elections. "As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America," Luján told The Hill. The comedian...

    Two of the senators who singlehandedly derailed the skinny repeal of Obamacare were awarded a sit down interview with the admiring Dana Bash Friday on CNN. The bright faced journalist applauded Sens. Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) for having the “cajones” to vote against the Republican bill when they knew half the country would view them as heretics. Collins admitted it was an “uncomfortable” vote. But, they both insisted it was the right thing to do, which is why they did not fear backlash from GOP leadership, or even intimidating tweets from the Oval Office. Both women said...
  • What would abortion law now look like if Hillary Clinton had won?

    Washington Examiner ^ | 7/31/2017 | Frank Pavone
    "It might have been" are not always the saddest words. Sometimes, they're the most horrifying. Hillary Clinton in September will come out with a new book called "What Happened," about her loss to Donald Trump. That got me thinking: What would have happened had she won? For instance, what if Clinton became president, Chuck Schumer assumed leadership of the Senate, and Nancy Pelosi once again wielded a gavel in the House of Representatives? Sooner than you can say "political payback to Planned Parenthood," the United States would have had taxpayer-funded abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Don't...

    Under a law signed on Wednesday, pro-life pregnancy centers in Hawaii will be forced to tell patients about free abortions provided by the state. And if they don't, they could face fines up to $1,000 dollars for a repeated offense. There are currently five pro-life centers in the state. "This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate," reads the mandatory notification the centers will have to provide patients with. "Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to...

This includes choosing certain words over others. The original intent of word preference was to use words that are more neutral than others. But in recent years, that concept has changed. More often than not, style writers have been more interested...

    From Pew: Today, a 57% majority of Americans say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 40% think it should be illegal in all or most cases. These views are little changed from a year ago, though the share saying abortion should be legal in all or most cases is now higher than it was in the fall of 2015, when Congress battled over funding for Planned Parenthood (51% legal, 43% illegal).

    Jon Ossoff lost the House race in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District despite receiving nearly three-quarters of $1 million from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. With $734,000 in campaign contributions, the abortion giant was the second-biggest spender on the Democratic side of the ledger — only trailing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which poured $4.9 million into the race.

    Democrat Heath Mello lost his race for Omaha mayor Tuesday in a setback for supporters who argued that the Democratic National Committee and abortion rights groups were wrong to attack the anti-abortion former state senator. Mello, a 37-year-old Catholic from Omaha's working-class south side, had become a flashpoint for the internal Democratic battle over whether a candidate's position on reproductive rights should disqualify him from support by the national party after its crushing losses around the country last year. Republican Jean Stothert, a 63-year-old former nurse and city council member elected in 2013, was elected to a second term. It...

    Sen. Susan Collins on Sunday called it a “mistake” for the House Republicans’ health care bill to defund Planned Parenthood. “That is an important issue to me because I don’t think that low-income women should be denied their choice of health care providers for family planning, cancer screenings, some well-women care,” the Maine Republican said on ABC’s “This Week.” “It’s not the only issue in this huge bill, but I certainly think that it’s not fair and it is a mistake to defund Planned Parenthood,” said Ms. Collins. “But it’s one of many issues.” The American Health Care Act, passed...

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) warned Congress on Friday that he would file a lawsuit to protect abortion rights if the Senate passes the House GOP's healthcare bill. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Schneiderman attacked the bill, called the American Health Care Act, as "bad public policy." "It doesn't protect people with pre-existing conditions, it will cost millions of people healthcare," he said. Schneiderman said that the bill in its current form is unconstitutional due to attacks on "prohibited state funding." "In a tricky way, [it] tries to wipe out Planned Parenthood," he said. "It's an...

    Hollywood super-producer Shonda Rhimes says she finds it distressing that in 2017, women’s health needs to be protected as if it were an endangered species. In a speech at Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary gala in New York Tuesday night, where she earned the evening’s Champion of Change award, Rhimes — who recently joined the board at the organization — discussed how her hit television shows including Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy offer a glimpse into how the world would look if women were “running things,” and lamented that the female anatomy itself could become extinct in today’s political climate. “In 2017....

    A Planned Parenthood event will honor Hillary Clinton and Shonda Rhimes on May 2 in New York City. They are touting Clinton's "service to women and girls," and Rhimes' effort at "revolutionizing" the way abortion is "portrayed on television." In June 2015, Hillary spoke at the Women in the World Summit in New York City. She offered red meat to the audience, all of whom came to hear how she might promote abortion-on-demand once she became president. Speaking of abortion rights, Hillary said, "All the laws we've passed don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist...

    When Donald Trump stood in the lobby of Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 and announced he was running for president, he told all who listened to "mark" his words. "I would do various things very quickly," Trump said. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare," he said. "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border," he said. "And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. "Mark my words," he said. Fifteen months later -- after he won the Republican nomination and less than two months before his general election showdown -- Trump released...

    The 28 percent of Democrats who oppose abortion have no place in the Democratic party, according to two of the party’s leading figures. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin echoed party chair Tom Perez Sunday in saying that there is no room in the party for dissent on the abortion issue. “I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who...
