Planned Parenthood announced its endorsement of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. The endorsement is the first in the largest abortion provider's roughly 100-year-long existence.
In a statement released by Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the group labeled Clinton the "best presidential candidate for reproductive rights, hands down."
"Hillary Clinton holds the strongest record on reproductive rights of all presidential contenders in not just this election, but in American history. She doesn't just support women's health — she has been a proactive leader on expanding access to women's health care," stated PPFA. more >>
Evangelical leaders denounced President Obama's decision Friday to veto a legislation that would defund Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, of hundreds of millions of tax dollars, saying that the president is allowing the continuation of "tax-supported human trafficking."
"The President's veto and his support of Planned Parenthood are not surprising moves, but they are sobering reminders of how much more there is to do for the cause of women and the unborn," said Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, commenting on Obama's veto of the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act on Friday.
Obama vetoed the legislation, H.R. 3762, two days after the House of Representatives passed and sent it to the president's desk. The measure passed the Senate last month. more >>
In a few weeks, hundreds of thousands of people will join the March for Life in Washington, D.C. What if there were three times that many praying?
January 22nd is the 43rd anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision in our nation's history. With Roe v. Wade, seven robed men gave America some of the most permissive abortion-on-demand laws in the world. Since that time, nearly 60 million unborn children have been killed in the womb.
This month, January, is the month so many American Christians memorialize the unborn through Sanctity of Life Sunday (this year on January 17), and the March for Life on the National Mall in Washington DC on January 22nd. And the day before the March, John Stonestreet and I will be speaking at two events: the Anglicans for Life conference and the Evangelicals for Life conference, co-hosted by Focus on the Family and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. more >>
Catholic organization Little Sisters of the Poor pleaded with the U.S. Supreme Court not to force it to choose between helping the poor and abiding by its faith, when it comes to obiding by the HHS birth control mandate.
"As Little Sisters of the Poor, we offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they are welcomed as Christ," said Sister Loraine Marie Maguire, mother provincial of the Little Sisters of the Poor, according to Catholic News Agency.
"We perform this loving ministry because of our faith," she added, but said that the group "cannot possibly choose between our care for the elderly poor and our faith, and we shouldn't have to." more >>
America's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, conducted nearly 324,000 abortions and received over $553 million from taxpayers in 2014, the organization's latest report shows.
Planned Parenthood released its annual report for 2014-2015 which shows that although the organization performed fewer abortions, provided fewer services and saw about 200,000 fewer clients than in 2013, the organization received increased funding from the federal government.
Although the Hyde Amendment explicitly forbids federal tax dollars from being used to pay for abortions, the amount of taxpayer dollars that went to Planned Parenthood increased by about $25 million from 2013 to 2014, as the group received $553.7 million in 2014. more >>
