WASHINGTON — Pro-life "products of conception" protested Planned Parenthood in at least 65 cities across the United States Tuesday, calling for the government to immediately defund the nation's largest abortion provider in light of the emergence of three, so far, undercover videos showing high-level Planned Parenthood officials discussing compensation for aborted baby organs.
As a third sting video by the Center for Medical Progress was released Tuesday that allegedly shows a technician who worked for a partner of Planned Parenthood explaining how the companies were compensated more for later-developing organs like hearts, lungs and livers, three Republican presidential candidates chastised the organization for its "callous" disregard of human life at the #WomenBetrayed rally just outside the U.S. Capitol.
The organs, critics say, are not from babies, but from "products of conception." The organs, however, are valued by researchers because they are human organs. Planned Parenthood officials, who are themselves products of conception, maintain they have not violated any laws because they are legally allowed to seek compensation as long as they don't make a profit off of the organs they harvest. more >>
In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
Holly O'Donnell, who was hired as a phlebotomist, passed out on her first day of working at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic after she was directed to pick up a baby's dismembered leg using tweezers.
"I could feel death and pain shoot up my body," she exclaimed. "I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses." more >>
A pro-life hacktivist group has stolen confidential data from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, claiming that they will release the information soon.
Known as "3301", the group reportedly hacked the controversial pro-choice organization Sunday evening, stealing among other things names and email addresses for employees.
The U.S. Senate will soon vote on a piece of proposed legislation meant to defund the controversial abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky introduced a bill banning all federal funding of Planned Parenthood last Friday.
"Unless you stand for something, you will fall for anything." Everyone is familiar with this famous quote, though its original origins are unknown. What is known is that the sentiment appeared in a prayer offered by Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall in 1947. "Our Father," Marshall prayed, "we yearn for a better understanding of spiritual things, that we may know surely what Thy will is for us and for our Nation. Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for – because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything."
This idea endures and people respond to it because deep down everyone recognizes that adherence to principle over pragmatism, especially when it's hard, is a virtuous thing. For the last 43 years, those who affirm the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to the point of natural death have stood in the vanguard of opposition to abortion. Despite the sands of culture shifting around them, despite being dismissed as fools and decried as would-be oppressors, these individuals have refused to give way and refused to be silenced. Unlike many of their friends and neighbors, they never bought into the poisonous notion that the termination of an unwanted pregnancy is merely a medical "choice" made by a woman and her doctor. What they have always known – and what the rest of America is beginning to understand – is that abortion is nothing less than state-sanctioned killing of our tiniest and most vulnerable demographic: unborn children. What's more, we are learning that abortion is not merely a "service" provided by benevolent practitioners in the name of choice, but a profitable business that literally traffics in blood.
The media is still abuzz with talk of the recently released videos in which an undercover activist inquires about the purchase of fetal tissue harvested from aborted babies. In the first video, viewers are treated to a macabre scene in which a high-level Planned Parenthood official discusses – between bites of salad and sips of wine – how she and other abortionists preserve valuable fetal tissue during the procedure: more >>
Senate Republicans had a chance to stop Planned Parenthood from butchering unborn children and selling their body parts to the highest bidder. Instead, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to put up a vote -- thumbing his nose at Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, along with every pro-lifer in the nation.
That sort of emasculated leadership is why Donald Trump is surging in the polls. Americans want leaders with man-parts big enough to do the right thing.
What happened over weekend was an unprecedented display of cowardice from chicken-hearted politicians. It was a dastardly double-cross. more >>
