    SYRACUSE, N.Y. – About 85 protesters filled the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood in Syracuse today for an anti-abortion rally fueled by recent undercover videos about the sale of fetal tissue from abortions. Protesters demanded that Congress eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and investigate the organization for possible violation of federal law against selling fetal tissue for profit. The protest in Syracuse, one of dozens slated for today around the nation, drew participants from as far away as Yonkers. But many were local protesters who are regulars on the sidewalk at 1120 E. Genesee St., having prayed and...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Protesters carrying signs against abortion gathered outside a Planned Parenthood Association of Utah office Tuesday afternoon to call on government officials to strip funding from the reproductive health organization. The rally drew about 100 people and was one of 65 "Women Betrayed" protests that took place across the nation Tuesday, ignited by the release of three videos over the past few weeks showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the price of procuring fetal tissue. "The videos were horrific," said rally organizer Callie Oppedisano, a mother of three and active anti-abortion activist. "We want our Congress to know...

    The controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood is escalating on Capitol Hill as Senate Republicans vowed Tuesday to vote to cut off federal funds for the organization as early as next week and keep campaigning on the issue this fall. After anti-abortion activists on Tuesday released a new video showing representatives from Planned Parenthood talking about fetal tissue sales, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) assigned a trio of senators to come up with a plan to defund the abortion rights group. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) are trying to hash out a deal about how...

    A regional branch of Planned Parenthood warned reporters in a new letter Monday against airing recent sting videos released by a group which purport to show the abortion provider’s employees discussing the sell of aborted fetus parts. KVLY-TV in North Dakota published the letter from Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. “CMP has used footage obtained through deceit and unlawful behavior, including possible violations of state recording laws, federal tax laws and falsified state identification. Then, they concoct wildly false stories through selective editing,” the letter alleged. “We expect this video will be no different in that regard;...

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell focused her comments on how the federal funding for Planned Parenthood provides mammograms and other services for women. “What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms and cancer prevention screenings,” Burwell told the House Education and the Workforce Committee. “We do not fund abortion,” she added, though Burwell noted there are some...

    The protest was part of a national event held by Women Betrayed, an anti-abortion organization that aims to eliminate public funding for Planned Parenthood. The location on Providence Road is officially called the Columbia Health Center. The rally came two days before the center will begin taking appointments for abortions. Columbia Health Center will be the only abortion provider in mid-Missouri. Because of the 72-hour waiting period, the first day that abortions can be administered will be Aug. 3.

    Sixty-three percent of registered voters oppose cutting off federal funds to Planned Parenthood, according to a new poll commissioned by the organization. The poll, conducted by the Democratic firm Hart Research Associates, finds that along with 63 percent of voters overall who oppose defunding Planned Parenthood, 68 percent of independents also oppose the move. The poll finds that a “bare majority” of 53 percent of Republicans favor defunding, while 34 percent oppose the move. The survey finds that voters are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports funding Planned Parenthood over one calling to end funding, by a...

Instead Planned Parenthood is launching a Thank You campaign.

The Senate Health and Human Services committee will meet Wednesday to investigate Planned Parenthood’s role in fetal tissue donation programs. The investigation is one of three called for by state leaders following the release of undercover videos showing several Planned Parenthood national officials discussing tissue procurement methods and reimbursement fees. Fetal tissue donation for research is legal, but the group behind the videos allege that Planned Parenthood is illegally profiting from the reimbursements they receive for tissue procurement.

    President Obama has a long-standing, super close relationship with Planned Parenthood, most clearly exemplified by his willingness in 2011 to shut down the federal government rather than allow the abortion giant to be defunded. Obama hasn’t stopped with his own turf. He has also blocked state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. The quid pro quo is obvious: Planned Parenthood spends an inordinate amount of money and engages its vast grassroots network to get pro-abortion candidates elected; then they as pro-abortion legislators hand money back to Planned Parenthood, the most recent example being the Obamacare funding stream.

Soon after the first undercover video was released, state leaders ordered investigations into Planned Parenthood.

Given Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s general promotion of eugenics, along with the “The Negro Project” that she created to target African-Americans, and her appearance before at least one meeting of the KKK, pro-lifers also conclude an element of racism resides in the DNA of the abortion giant. In 2012 Protecting Black Life, connected to the Cincinnati-based Life Issues Institute, looked...

Andre Jacque is co-sponsoring legislation that will require family planning clinics, most notably Planned Parenthood, to bill Medicaid at the actual acquisition cost when they acquire drugs at the heavily discounted rates available through the Medicaid 340B program. Jacque contends that providers like Planned Parenthood, which gets over half a billion in taxpayer monies annually, are inflating rates, sometimes “eight times” the actual cost. The bill would limit providers to a “reasonable” dispensing fee, which Jacque...

    Normally when I report on a story as huge as Planned Parenthood’s baby parts harvesting, I leave my emotions out of it. Having just watch the third undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress, entitled, Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts, I am afraid that this time, I cannot set my emotions aside. The latest sting video is hard hitting and features Dr. Katherine Sheehan, Medical Director emerita of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in San Diego. Kate (Katharine) Sheehan made $312,509 plus $4988 in other compensation from the abortion giant in...

    “It’s a pretty sick company,” phlebotomist and former Stem Express “procurement technician” Holly O’Donnell says about her former employer. The latest video from Center for Medical Progress features O’Donnell explaining the trade in organ harvesting from Planned Parenthood. The clinics reprimanded employees who failed to produce enough specimens, because “Planned Parenthood needs ‘compensation’,” O’Donnell explains. “The harder and more valuable the tissue, the more money you can get,” she continues. “If you can somehow procure a brain or a heart, you’re going to get more money” than just for tissue samples. “I guess that’s an incentive to try and...

    On the floor of the U.S. Senate on Sunday evening, something remarkable—a little bit insider-y in Washington, but remarkable nonetheless—happened: The Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)52% , his entire leadership team, and most of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate voice voted through measures to fund Planned Parenthood in its entirety and to help protect President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms deal with Iran. The reason the voice vote is significant is because McConnell, especially, and his Whip Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX)59% , purposefully launched what appears to be an unprecedented effort to duck accountability for their votes—and the...
