Due to an objection with an Affordable Care Act mandate that requires health insurance plans to offer base birth control, Wheaton College has announced that it will no longer offer health insurance to its students to avoid conflicting with the institution's Christian convictions.
The decision, announced to its students on July 10, effectively strips about a quarter of the suburban Chicago non-denominational liberal arts school's undergraduate and graduate students of their health care plans, which is about 700-plus individuals.
As one of the most contested aspects of Obamacare has been the requirement for health insurance plans to provide birth control and emergency contraceptives, a number of Christian organizations have cried foul, claiming that the law violates their religious beliefs. more >>
WASHINGTON — Pro-life "products of conception" protested Planned Parenthood in at least 65 cities across the United States Tuesday, calling for the government to immediately defund the nation's largest abortion provider in light of the emergence of three, so far, undercover videos showing high-level Planned Parenthood officials discussing compensation for aborted baby organs.
As a third sting video by the Center for Medical Progress was released Tuesday that allegedly shows a technician who worked for a partner of Planned Parenthood explaining how the companies were compensated more for later-developing organs like hearts, lungs and livers, three Republican presidential candidates chastised the organization for its "callous" disregard of human life at the #WomenBetrayed rally just outside the U.S. Capitol.
The organs, critics say, are not from babies, but from "products of conception." The organs, however, are valued by researchers because they are human organs. Planned Parenthood officials, who are themselves products of conception, maintain they have not violated any laws because they are legally allowed to seek compensation as long as they don't make a profit off of the organs they harvest. more >>
In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.

"I could feel death and pain shoot up my body," she exclaimed. "I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses." more >>
