    FULL TITLE: Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero Recently, a Tennessee woman gave birth to healthy twin babies who miraculously survived a chemical abortion attempt at a Knoxville, TN, Planned Parenthood. The incredible story of these miracle babies, as told by one pro-life physician, underscores just how sorely the abortion giant fails to meet the needs of women, both from a medical standpoint and a human one. Displaying obvious ineptitude from the start, the nation’s largest abortion business only informed the woman she was pregnant with twins after the chemical abortion...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A new study from researchers at Texas A&M University finds Tennessee's abortion waiting period law has reduced the number of abortions by 6%. Passed in 2015 under then Governor Bill Haslam, the law sets a 48 hour waiting period before undergoing the procedure. The law has been challenged in federal court by abortion clinics which argue it provides no benefits and causes a burden to women. Focusing on the Tennessee law, the new study found while abortions overall decreased, the waiting period caused a 38% increase in the number of second-trimester abortions. The study also found the waiting period...

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz...

  • HOUSE REPUBLICAN: Tariffs are 'only way' to change US-China relationship

    TWEET SHARE MORE 10/1/2019 Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) defended President Trump’s ongoing trade war with China, arguing that such a hardline approach is the only way to fundamentally change diplomatic relations with Beijing. “The president is correct — it’s the only way,” Burchett, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told Hill.TV during an interview that aired on Tuesday, referring to Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods. “This diplomacy they’ve been doing in the past is basically us giving them our checkbook and Congress is basically gutless when it comes to China,” he added. “We need to stand up them...

    SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. -- The Shelby County Sheriff's Office charged a man with the murder of a woman and her 4-month-old baby, found stabbed in a house that was then set on fire. The Shelby County Sheriff's Office said 25-year-old Enoch Zarceno, who is the baby's father, has been arrested and charged with numerous felonies, including two counts of first-degree murder and aggravated arson. Family members said they believe he was angry about the possibility of having to pay child support. Just two weeks ago, Cook posted to a private Facebook group for single moms, asking for advice.

I definitely cut corners on sleep.” Rouse soon realized that her new schedule made it impossible to keep training the way she did in college. So throughout most of her...

    They made chop suey of the health regulations. Just hours after being busted for washing down kitchen equipment in a local lake, a Chinese restaurant was open for business. Employees of No. 1 Chinese Restaurant in suburban Nashville, Tenn., were caught washing everything from pots and rags to grill tops at a boat dock at nearby Old Hickory Lake — a popular recreation spot — NewsChannel5 reported. A series of videos showing the restaurant’s organic approach to food safety was shared first on Facebook and then with the health department, which quickly sent an inspector to the scene Tuesday.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Abortion: It’s a hot-button issue that is brought up year after year in our state. Back in the spring, state lawmakers debated what was then referred to as the Heartbeat Bill – aiming to make it a felony to perform an abortion once a heartbeat is detected. Lawmakers made several changes to the bill as time has gone on, and now critics say it goes too far. Several Knoxville doctors and abortion rights advocates say the legislation is dangerous and unconstitutional, speaking out in opposition Friday at the Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health. “From what I...

    NEWPORT, Tenn. — Wendy Ramsey began her day as she often does, in the cool basement of Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church. It was a Thursday, and her first client was coming at noon. She flipped on the fluorescent lights. Racks of infant, toddler and maternity clothes neatly lined the waiting area. Formula and baby food were on the shelf, free for anyone who came. A flier for a local domestic violence shelter was taped to the cinder-block wall, one of its tabs ripped off. A whiteboard in her office listed her prayer requests: for her clients, for their salvation and...

    The self-parking ID.3 shows how big-volume car makers are unleashing a new generation of technologically advanced vehicles that will allow them to wrestle back leadership of their industry from upstarts like Tesla Inc. But in order for the industry’s huge bet on electrification to pay off, car makers will have to sell millions of the vehicles to mass-market consumers, not just an elite group of wealthy, environmentally conscious consumers. Ultimately, it expects to build one million electric cars with this technology by 2025 and a total of 15 million before upgrading the vehicle’s core technology. Bumper to bumper, the ID.3...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Opponents to a Tennessee law requiring women to wait 48 hours before getting an abortion argue that such restrictions help perpetuate negative stereotypes about gender. The argument is part of a lengthy lawsuit challenging the legality of the waiting period rule, which Tennessee's GOP-controlled Statehouse passed in 2015. "The act thus violates the Equal Protection Clause by restricting women's ability to make autonomous, voluntary decisions concerning their reproductive lives and their medical care, while no such restrictions are imposed on medical decision-making by men," attorneys wrote on behalf of Planned Parenthood and other women's health clinics in...

He said there are “four states of the apocalypse” – New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Illinois – which have the most residents fleeing over high taxes and huge budget problems. They are leaving for Florida, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and North Carolina. “You can buy a house just with the money you save on...
