Planned Parenthood actually instructs its supporters to "treat tough questions as general issues and don't respond to specifics." There's a good reason for that. It's because Planned Parenthood's talking points bear little resemblance to the truth.
With each successive undercover video, America is learning more and more about the depraved practices of its number-one abortion provider. But, Planned Parenthood isn't about to give up its $500 million government subsidy without a fight. So, it's continuing to twist the truth and to perpetrate narratives it knows are false.
Below are five of its most commonly repeated myths — and why you shouldn't believe any of them. more >>
A professional gynecologist who during the 1980s performed hundreds of first and second trimester abortions has submitted congressional testimony describing the graphic nature of the procedure.
Dr. Anthony Levatino of New Mexico gave testimony Thursday afternoon to the House Judiciary Committee as part of an investigation into Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
In graphic detail, Levatino described the process of a Suction D&E procedure, which involves using a sopher clamp to rip limbs off an aborted baby. more >>
(Via LiveActionNews.org) In her testimony before Congress on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards claimed, "we don't provide abortions after, um, viability." This was in answer to Rep. DeSantis' question about whether babies who survive abortions should be given medical care and treatment.
While Richards completely misses the law — babies don't have to be viable to be cared for once they are born alive; the law simply states that they are persons and deserve care if they are born alive at any age. Yet even beyond being legally wrong, Richards lied — under oath — to Congress and the American people.
It is a blatant falsehood to claim that Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions after viability, as a number of their clinics abort babies up to 24 weeks. (See here for screenshots from PP's own website.) But first, let's make sure we understand viability. more >>

In new video clip released by David Daleiden of the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, a Texas-based Planned Parenthood abortionist who ends pregnancies up to 24 weeks gestation, is shown joking about aborting unborn babies with both sides of the brain intact as a goal to "strive for."
In footage from the video presented during an interview with Live Action President Lila Rose on TheBlaze TV, Daleiden shows the abortionist identified as Dr. Amna Dermish laughing off the brain joke.
"If there's a request for fetal brain, they're always wanting both hemispheres," says Daleiden, posing as a an organ buyer off-camera in the video. more >>
In the midst of the distressing stories of Planned Parenthood's heartless abortion industry and the gruesomeness inherent in destroying a child within the womb, compassionate and committed people in our country and in many other places in the world are putting their lives and incomes on the line in adopting children who desperately need families and homes.
