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 >>
David Daleiden, the pro-life activist behind a series of undercover videos that revealed Planned Parenthood's scheme to profit off fetal tissue harvesting, said his home was raided by California authorities on Tuesday.
"Today, the California Attorney General's office of Kamala Harris, who was elected with tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood's criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information," said Daleiden in a statement released through the Facebook page of The Center for Medical Progress.
"Ironically, while seizing my First Amendment work product, they ignored documents showing the illicit scheme between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood. This is no surprise — Planned Parenthood's bought-and-paid-for AG has steadfastly refused to enforce the law against the baby body parts traffickers in our state, or even investigate them — while at the same time doing their bidding to harass and intimidate citizen journalists. We will pursue all remedies to vindicate our First Amendment rights. #PPSellsBabyParts," the statement ended. more >>
Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is under fire again for the organization's controversial fetal harvesting consent form given to women considering abortion that falsely claims aborted babies' tissue has been used to "treat and find a cure" for diseases such as AIDS, cancer and diabetes.
The controversial form was reviewed during a hearing of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held on March 2 to examine the bioethics of fetal tissue harvesting and experimentation.
"Research using the blood from pregnant women and tissue that has been aborted has been used to treat and find a cure for such diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and AIDS," begins the language on a copy of the form. more >>
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is now facing the wrath of pro-choice activists who are attacking the former first lady for saying a baby is a "child" and an "unborn person."
Clinton made the comment after she was asked about her position on abortion and if she believes an unborn child has constitutional rights during an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd.
"When or if does an unborn child have constitutional rights?" Todd asked Clinton. more >>
The Roman Catholic Church in Poland is coming out in support of a proposed law that would increase regulations on abortion in the European country to protect life from conception to death.
As Reuters reports, Poland's abortion laws allow the termination of a pregnancy if the mother's life is in danger, in cases of rape or incest, or if the baby would be severely deformed.
The legislation, which is being proposed by the conservative Law and Justice Party, will make unborn life protection laws even stronger, allowing termination of pregnancy only in cases where mothers face a medical emergency. more >>
