  • Trump Gives Young Feminist the Brush-Off on Equal Pay and AbortionYou're going to make the same IF y

    Donald Trump gave a young feminist the back of his hand on Monday, dismissing her demand for absolute pay equity by insisting that women and men should earn the same salary only if their job performances match up. 'I want to get paid the same as a man, and I think you understand that,' the unidentified woman asked him during the Q&A portion of a bipartisan 'No Labels' event in New Hampshire. 'So if you become president, will a woman make the same as a man? And do I get to choose what I do with my body?' Following applause...

    End of the American Dream ^ | 10/09/2015 | Michael Snyder
    I recently came across one of the saddest statistics that I have ever seen in my entire life. Less than a week ago, I was roaming around Denver International Airport and I decided to pick up a copy of USA Today and catch up with what was going on in the world. As I read the paper, one particular story really grabbed my attention. A poll had been taken to find out how Americans felt about potentially cutting off federal funding for Planned Parenthood. I figured that it would be pretty close to 50/50, and considering all of the revelations...
  • Fmr Planned Parenthood Manager Says PP Views Women's Bodies as 'Profit Centers'

    At the House Judiciary Committee’s second hearing into the suspicious practices of Planned Parenthood, one former employee made some very serious accusations about the organization that claims to serve women’s health. Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic manager, shared a testimony that proved the organization often considers money a higher priority than patients’ wellbeing: “No business, certainly no healthcare clinic, should view a woman’s body as a profit center, yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does,” Thayer said. She had personal anecdotes to prove it: One of the first times that I saw the truth about Planned Parenthood was...

    Kelsey Grammer, best known for his role as psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane on the sitcoms "Cheers" and "Frasier," was recently photographed wearing a pro-life t-shirt. The shirt reads "Would it bother us more if they used guns?" The words wrap around a handgun and below that is a website address: The picture was taken by Grammar's wife Kayte and posted on her Instagram account. The message of the shirt indicates that concern over recent deaths in gun shootings should also apply to unborn babies.

    New research in Spain proves that unborn babies can hear and respond to music at just 16 weeks, ten weeks earlier than previously thought, but only if played through a 'musical tampon'. The incredible 3D images show the foetuses opening their mouths and sticking out their tongues in response to music emitted via the vagina. "The foetuses responded to the music by moving their mouths and their tongues as if they wanted to speak or sing," said the Instituto Marqués, which unveiled the results of the tests - carried out on 100 pregnant women - on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 6, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio supports selling the morning after pill over the counter. The Florida senator, a Roman Catholic, said he supports making the abortifacient available without a prescription, perhaps based on a misunderstanding of when conception occurs. “In the cases [of rape or incest], they’re terrible tragedies. They’re horrifying,” Sen. Rubio said in response to a candidate survey by the news editorial site theSkimm. “And luckily in the 21st century, we have treatments available early on after an incident that can prevent that fertilization from happening. And that’s why I support...

    Last week Planned Parenthood held a press conference to remind the world just how much they care about African Americans.  They claim to provide “vital reproductive and sexual health care services” for black women.But as I have written about before, their “vital” work actually means they are aborting a disproportionate number of black babies and profiting from charging their mothers for the abortion and then selling their body parts.Life News breaks down the real statistics behind Planned Parenthood’s claims: However, their “vital” work is much more than providing birth control and manual breast exams, which is what the mainstream media would like...

About half of the donors gave at some point to President Obama. Six gave to one or more of the Democratic Party organizations. Others gave to various...

Now, this week, they responded to the governor's and attorney general's motion to dismiss their suit. The Satanic suit identifies abortion as an "essential religious duty" for Satanists and opposes Missouri's "Informed Consent" and 72-hour waiting period laws. Satanic Temple founder Doug Mesner (a pseudonym), who goes by the Satanist name "Lucien Greaves," sued Missouri's governor, attorney general, and the state, saying that Missouri's informed consent law violates the...

The college continued the push by participating in the nationwide “Pink Out” day on September 29.

    Nothing has defined Carly Forina's presidential campaign quite like her outspoken opposition to Planned Parenthood — a point she has brought up repeatedly at debates and press conferences. It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains.

Even people with a really even temperament may want to apply a layer of duct tape to their foreheads at once. That Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms is indisputable. Its officials admit it; its president has even confessed as much before Congress under oath. But when a pro-life advocate says the same thing, PolitiFact, the self-appointed arbiter of truth and falsehood on the political scene, officially rated his comments "half-true."

They put out a video coaching young people how to make sure they get full consent before sexual activity. This is ironic, considering the Center for Medical Progress tapes include an insider saying Planned Parenthood routinely failed to seek the mother's consent before "donating" the parts of her baby to fetal tissue researchers.

Unfortunately, the article was marred by some significant tactical, factual, and logical errors. I am writing today to provide a respectful response to some of those errors. Hawkins committed a serious tactical error in the opening of her article - one that has justifiably upset a...

    September 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Retired hockey star Gordie Howe and NFL football star John Brodie have both had fetal stem cells injected into their spines to treat strokes, but because they had adult stem cells administered intravenously at the same time, critics say there is no way to know if their recoveries derive from the fetal cells. "There is no way to learn which is responsible," Theresa Deisher of Seattle-based AVM Biotechnology, told LifeSiteNews. A second problem is more serious: fetal stem cells were the scientific rage a decade ago because of their capacity to turn into any kind...

    A Carly Fiorina super PAC has launched a powerful and graphic online ad refuting claims that she falsely described a scene in an undercover video where a live aborted fetus is kicking its legs. The former HP CEO made the remarks at the Sept. 16 Republican primary debate last week as she dared President Obama and Hillary Clinton to watch the Planned Parenthood videos. “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 said, adding that if Congress does not pass legislation defunding...

    The U.S. Senate failed to move forward on a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks gestation, when a fetus can feel pain. Known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the bill failed on Tuesday morning to receieve the necessary 60 votes to advance to a vote. "What I am asking every colleague is this: look in your hearts and help us stand up for the most innocent life," said Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in advance of the vote. Introduced in January by Congressman Trent Franks of Arizona in the House of Representatives as H.R....
  • 'ShoutYourAbortion' campaign explodes on social media

    Los Angeles (AFP) - A social media campaign launched by three US activists to denounce the stigma surrounding abortion has gone viral as women have shared their experiences, though pro-life campaigners have hit back. The hashtag "#ShoutYourAbortion" was started on Twitter over the weekend after the US House of Representatives voted to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest women's health care ser vices provider, as Republicans pushed for a probe of the organization. Lindy West, Amelia Bonow and Kimberly Morrison said they began the campaign in a bid to encourage women to reclaim the conversation about abortion. Bonow...

    Pope Francis today suggested to reporters during an airborne press conference that he is not a left-winger. “Some people might say some things [I said] sounded slightly more leftish, but that would be a mistake of interpretation,” the Pope said to journalists, according to Time.

Santiago de Cuba, Sep 22, 2015 / 09:15 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis met with families on Tuesday at Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral in Santiago de Cuba, thanking those gathered for their warm witness and inclusive nature, reflecting that it is at home, in the family, that Christ shows the love of God. Going off script from his prepared remarks Sept. 22, the Pope recalled that at the General Audiences held each Wednesday in St. Peter's Square,...

    Whoopi Goldberg slammed critics of Planned Parenthood Monday, telling her fellow co-hosts on The View that defunding the controversial abortion provider would do little to stop women from obtaining abortions.“If you think this is going to stop women from doing it, it’s not,” Goldberg said during Monday’s episode, according to the Wrap. “People who are desperate enough to go and get an abortion, there’s a reason they need it.”The host then asked that politicians stay away from her reproductive system: “Get out of my ...The comments came during a particularly politically-charged episode of The View, during which Goldberg and her...
  • Surprise: Democrats To Block Late Term Abortion Bill

    As we once again get down to the wire on a potential government shutdown, Senate Democrats are taking an extreme stance on abortion and plan to block legislation introduced by Republicans to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy.  Democrats seem certain to block Republican legislation banning most late-term abortions in a Senate showdown with plenty of political significance but little suspense. Though the GOP controls the Senate, Democrats appeared certain to prevent them from getting the 60 votes needed Tuesday to move ahead on the bill. It would be the second time since this summer's release of videos involving...

    Imagine if Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and Speaker of the House John Boehner both accepted an award named for slave-owner and President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis.Imagine further that Jeb Bush enthusiastically defended his award by proclaiming: “I am really in awe of Jefferson Davis, and there are a lot of lessons we can learn from his life.”The editorial pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post, not to mention the talking heads at MSNBC and CNN, would likely condemn Bush and Boehner as crypto-racists and insist they return — or trash — their awards.Of course,...

    The Hill and Wolf Blitzer call this Hillary Clinton’s “first live television interview since starting her campaign,” but that’s not entirely correct. Hillary has appeared on softball shows like Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon to dance and have her hair pulled, and while those might not have aired live, they had live audiences. Her interview with CNN’s Blitzer was the first live interview in which Hillary got asked tough questions, and in which Hillary did all she could to keep from answering them.Oddly, the first question Hillary ducks is an opportunity to offer up a few specific accomplishments during her...
