    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood comes under fire for using Fifty Shades of Grey to teach young girls about sex Planned Parenthood has been accused of 'consistently recommending' the Fifty Shades of Grey series to 'minor girls.' As part of an ongoing investigation, Live Action - a Catholic pro-life nonprofit - has been sending female investigators to Planned Parenthood clinics around the country with hidden cameras, to pose as 15 and 16-year-old girls and asking for advice related to the book. Live Action president Lila Rose summarized her findings from the footage for the New York Post; claiming that a counselor...

    After losing in the Hobby Lobby v Burwell Supreme Court case earlier this summer, the Obama administration has just issued new rules for the notorious “HHS Mandate,” the Obamacare provision that requires all employee health plans to include free contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.This marks the eighth time the Obama administration has modified the HHS Mandate. Once again, they’re refusing to listen to the American people—or even the U.S. Supreme Court—and truly respect the employers’ conscience rights.The new rules are nothing more than a slight variation of the so-called “accommodation” first announced in February 2012, whereby some “third party” will provide...

  • ’50 Shades’ for girls: Planned Parenthood pushes porn

    It turns out that Planned Parenthood staffers love “50 Shades of Grey” — so much that they proclaim the series and its dubious philosophy to teen girls looking for guidance. “Fifty Shades” tells how how hyper-controlling Christian Grey subjects 21-year-old Ana Steele (who, it must be noted, talks like a 13-year-old) to an endless series of physically harmful and degrading sexual situations. Some consider it liberating (or at least titillating), but you can also call it sadomasochistic porn. Of course the mentality here, and its popular success, isn’t new. Recall Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”: With its unending repetition of “I...

Mississippi is devoid of any abortionists of its own who are capable of obtaining hospital admitting privileges, a requirement now mandated by law in several states. Consequently, Parker — who boasts an unusually clean record for an abortionist, and was able to obtain privileges nearby — travels to the South to fill in.Esquire calls Parker’s practice a “ministry,” playing off of the abortionist’s professed Christianity. The author chose to conclude the...

    Planned Parenthood took a big hit on Tuesday after the District Court for Polk County, Iowa upheld a ban on “webcam” abortions. Judge Jeffrey Farrell’s ruling concluded that abortions – if done at all – really should be done after a complete medical exam. Better yet, Judge Ferrell ruled that the medical exam should actually be done by a physician – in person – and not via video feed. Well slap my head, imagine that. In an effort to increase profit margins, Planned Parenthood’s management decided that their rural clinics could save money if they did abortions without having a...

The basic ideas and beliefs seem more satisfactory when they are not made fully explicit, when they merely lurk rather obscurely in the background, coloring the rhetoric and adding a certain emotive glow.” To compensate for five decades of public education...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, stopped at a Hobby Lobby store in her district on Wednesday – not to pick up some craft supplies for one of her kid’s school projects, but to alert people to the store’s existence and urge people not to shop there. “I want people to know that this Hobby Lobby is here and they should vote with their purses and their pocketbooks, and women should not shop here. If you didn’t know this Hobby Lobby was here before, know it now and don’t shop here. They don’t...

    n 2010, Marianne Anderson worked at a Planned Parenthood facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. She started working there because the job was very close to her house, and she was hired to start up their conscious sedation program, which allowed clients to purchase mild to moderate sedatives to be given intravenously before an abortion. Anderson, who is a mother of two and a grandmother of one, said when she started at the facility she was on the fence about abortion. This was because when she was on staff at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis she had seen girls that had attempted abortions...

    In a bizarre rant on Twitter earlier today, atheist Richard Dawkins wrote that choosing not to abort a child with Down Syndrome would be "immoral." The conversation started when Dawkins tweeted that "Ireland is a civilised country except in this 1 area." The area was abortion, which until last year was illegal in all cases. A Twitter user then asked Dawkins if "994 human beings with Down's Syndrome [having been] deliberately killed before birth in England and Wales in 2012" was "civilised." Dawkins replied "yes, it is very civilised. These are fetuses, diagnosed before they have human feelings." Apparently I'm...

    A national civil rights and violence debate is brewing because of the tenuous situation in Ferguson, Missouri. But the president of the Planned Parenthood abortion business isn’t letting an opportunity to push her pro-abortion agenda go to waste. LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger has more on Cecile Richards’ latest antics: cecilerichards23And to add more craziness to chaos, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, injected herself into the Ferguson tragedy. Keep in mind, this is someone who derives her $583,000 annual salary from the nation’s largest abortion chain whose home city, NYC, aborts more black babies than are born alive. On Facebook she...

    Edward Pohlman, in a pre-Roe study financed by Planned Parenthood, noted: “Induced abortion requires overt action and a decision that is somewhat daring. In cultures which provides sanctions against abortion, it is impossible to believe that all of the parents who want abortions have them. Others would seriously, consciously like to have them but do not, because of health, conscience, public opinion, and other barriers… there are psychological as well as legal and practical differences between… seriously considering abortion and actually going through with one, to be sure.” Edward Pohlman “The Psychology of Birth Planning” Shenkman Publishing Company, Cambridge Massachusetts,...

    Euthanasia. Rationing. Assisted Suicide. These are the kinds of concerns the pro-life community brought up when Congress pushed through Obamacare and government-run health care. These concerns are already becoming real in the Untied States, but a new story out of the United Kingdom should give Americans a hint as to what’s next.Nurses who are a part of in-home health care programs for the sick, elderly and disabled are coming forward to say they’ve been told to ask such patients not if they need medical help but if they need assistance in killing themselves.The nurses say patients are asked via a...

    I wrote a couple of weeks ago about one of the major problems I have with the bodily autonomy argument: that it’s totally at odds with people’s real-life experiences with abortion. In keeping with that theme, here’s another issue I have with the bodily autonomy argument. If the bodily autonomy argument were genuine, abortion supporters would have no discomfort whatsoever with Melissa Ohden.Who’s Melissa Ohden? I’m so glad you asked.Melissa (above) is a public speaker who lives in Missouri with her husband and two daughters. And when she was 31 weeks old, she was born prematurely after an abortionist injected...

    I think it is time to start calling Peter Singer ”Professor Death.”The Princeton moral philosopher–an oxymoron in his case–is the world’s foremost proponent of infanticide. He usually uses examples of disabled babies, but the reason he believes they can be killed is that they are supposedly not “persons.” Thus, Singer has refused to state that killing a baby because she was ugly would be wrong.Professor Death also supports euthanasia, both voluntary and non voluntary against ill human non-persons, such as Alzheimer’s patients.He has also stated that cognitively devastated people should have been used in developing the hepatitis vaccines instead of...

    Pro-choice author Anne Eggebroten, edited a book entitled Abortion: My Choice, God’s Grace which tells the stories of Christian women who had abortions. The book celebrates abortion as an acceptable choice and tries to justify it based on the Bible. There is one story in particular I want to comment on. It is a first-hand account of a pro-choice clinic escort who describes how she got involved in the pro-choice movement. I think what she said is worth considering: My participation in the pro-choice march was motivated by boredom and restlessness as much as by a desire to be of...
