A regional chapter of the nation's leading abortion provider filed a legal complaint against Indiana for the state's recently passed law banning abortions of babies with Down syndrome.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky filed the suit against the House Enrolled Act 1337 on Thursday in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Indiana.
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton doubled down on controversial comments she made earlier this week on the "unborn child" having no constitutional rights when she declared that even on their due dates it's still up to their mothers whether they live or die.
In an appearance Tuesday on ABC's "The View," co-host Paula Faris asked Clinton: "At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?"
"Under our law that is the case, Paula," Clinton said. more >>
Democratic primary frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton recently stated in an interview that a fully developed baby can be aborted, even on their due date.
During a recent appearance on The View, Clinton was asked by Paula Faris if she believed that there should be any legal protections, even "just hours before delivery," offered for a baby in the womb.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who ordered the raid on the apartment belonging to the producer of last year's undercover Planned Parenthood videos, was accused of being "in bed" with the abortion giant as she is actively using her Senate campaign to advocate for the organization.
Pro-life activists are accusing Harris, an avid Planned Parenthood supporter, of having a severe conflict of interest after she ordered the search of Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden's apartment in Orange County on Tuesday, in which Daleiden's laptop, hard drives and yet-to-be released undercover videos were seized.
Harris, who is running for the United States Senate seat vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, is using her campaign website to encourage visitors to sign a petition calling on federal lawmakers not to strip Planned Parenthood of its over $500 million in annual federal funding, a move brought on by conservatives last year after the release of CMP's series of undercover videos. more >>
Most Americans don't believe a person can be a "good Christian" and support abortion or same-sex marriage, according to results from a YouGov poll.
In a poll conducted earlier this month by YouGov, only 33 percent of respondents believed a person can be a good Christian and support abortion. The poll also found only 38 percent believed one can be a good Christian and support gay marriage.
The sample space for the study comprised of 1,000 respondents who were U.S. citizens aged 18 and older and interviewed online April 1-3. more >>
Leading Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said over the weekend, "The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights." She made her remarks on NBC's "Meet the Press" (4/3/16).
I'm amazed that she even used the phrase "unborn person." Many times those who favor abortion rights use demeaning phrases like "clump of tissue" or "POC," i.e., "Product of Conception."
Clinton went on to say, "Now that doesn't mean that we don't do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support." more >>
