Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit against anti-abortion group The Center for Medical Progress, claiming that series of videos showing the business trafficked in fetal tissue "a reckless smear campaign" and are seeking extensive monetary damages.
"We are filing this lawsuit to hold accountable the people behind this reckless smear campaign," claimed Kathy Kneer, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, according to MSNBC.
The Center for Medical Progress reacted quickly to the suit, however, calling it a desperate and frivolous retaliation against the organization for exposing the truth about Planned Parenthood's "lawless" operations. more >>
Every January, I usually see the same faces coming to the local and national Marches for Life happening across our country. I long to see more people I don't know participate, even people to whom I live next door. There may be a myriad of reasons why not everyone comes.

He acknowledges the arguments made by pro-lifers about the humanity of the unborn are reasonable. He states that answers will never come from activists and says it is up to the rational middle to bring this war to an end. more >>

"How many new 'Herods' there are today, who not only kill children after their birth, but have gone further … there are so many unborn children [killed] today," Shevchuk said last week during the Eastern celebration of Christmas, Catholic World News reported.
The Archbishop further warned that Ukrainian people are facing "enslavement" in the face of gender ideology. more >>
In a recent interview with Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, the interviewer asked if she noticed a generational divide between young women and women her age regarding their excitement over Hillary Clinton. The Congresswoman responded,
"Here's what I see: a complacency among the generation of young women whose entire lives have been lived after Roe v. Wade was decided."
It's difficult to do … but with that comment, the congresswoman somehow managed to upset women on both sides of the issue. more >>
