An appeals court has ruled against a Catholic order of nuns in their lawsuit against the Obama administration's birth control mandate.
The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday against the Little Sisters of the Poor, concluding that having to fill out a form requesting that an another party provide insurance for contraceptives does not violate the order's religious liberty.
"Although we recognize and respect the sincerity of Plaintiffs' beliefs and arguments, we conclude the accommodation scheme relieves Plaintiffs of their obligations under the Mandate and does not substantially burden their religious exercise under RFRA or infringe upon their First Amendment rights," read the Tenth Circuit's decision. more >>
An in-depth undercover video released Tuesday shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing how the billion dollar organization harvests and sells the intact body parts of aborted babies to fetal tissue wholesalers.
The video, first unveiled at the Center for Medical Progress website, is part of a three-year investigation into what the Center for Medical Progress is calling "illegal" practices by Planned Parenthood. Once received by fetal tissue wholesalers, the body parts are shipped to universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.
Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services who performs abortions up to 24 week gestation in Los Angeles, is captured in the video from July 25, 2014, saying the clinics perform partial birth abortions to secure fetal body parts. more >>
Today, the Center for Medial Progress (CMP) has released a highly disturbing video, proving that Planned Parenthood is engaged in the sale of baby parts – a completely illegal activity.
CMP's investigative video contains footage "from an undercover meeting with a top-level Planned Parenthood abortion doctor executive," Dr. Deborah Nucatola. Nucatola is the Senior Director of Medical Services for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. CMP's investigators posed "as a Fetal Tissue Procurement Company" to obtain the meeting with Nucatola.
Deborah Nucatola is in one of Planned Parenthood's highest positions, tasked with the responsibility to oversee the abortion practice of all Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the nation. She herself also performs abortions, through the near end of the second trimester – 24 weeks. more >>
Conservative organizations remain concerned about the religious liberty implications of the Department of Health and Human Services' birth control mandate following the release of the mandate final rules.
The Family Research Council, a conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C., denounced the final rules immediately following their release last Friday.
FRC Legislative Assistant Jamie Dangers stated that the HHS "is offering a variation of an old accounting gimmick which still mandates that the Little Sisters of the Poor, Notre Dame, and many other religious non-profits offer coverage with objectionable benefits." more >>
After gay marriage, brace yourself for assisted suicide - it's next on the agenda. The June 27th cover of The Economist, an influential national publication, heralded "The Right to Die: Why Assisted Suicide Should be Legal."
Currently there is a bill being put before the House of Lords in Britain to legalize assisted suicide. Get ready.
Just as homosexuality was relabeled "Gay" and "Homosexual Marriage" served up as "Marriage Equality," assisted suicide is now "Death With Dignity" and "End-of-Life Counseling" becomes "Advanced Care Planning." more >>
Conservative leader Morton Blackwell keeps a picture of Leonardo's model of a bicycle on the wall of his Leadership Institute. It's his site gag--and a sight gag.
Leonardo's bike is a reminder that the great conservative philosophical insight—Ideas Have Consequences—is true only if people act upon it. You can sketch a bicycle and perhaps even build a working model. But we know it took four hundred years for people to start riding bicycles.
Progressives don't ever wait that long. They start acting upon their ideas immediately. The only trouble is: the ideas they believe in are not true.rogre Among the lies they believe, here are three of the most prominent: more >>
