Former actress and abortion counselor Emily Letts, who posted a video on YouTube that allegedly shows her having a surgical procedure for an early first trimester abortion, is being called out by some pro-life advocates as having possibly faked the video due to its glaring inconsistencies.
Letts, 25, is working as an abortion counselor at the Cherry Hill Women's Center in New Jersey, and was awarded a cash prize from a pro-abortion group for submitting a 3-minute video of herself allegedly having an abortion as an entry in the "Abortion Stigma Busting" contest. Her video has already garnered over 2 million views on YouTube and she also wrote a column that was published in Cosmopolitan magazine to help promote the abortion video.
In 2003, the clinic that employes Letts paid an undisclosed settlement in a malpractice lawsuit that was filed against the facility after the abortionist on staff, Charles Benjamin, performed a second trimester abortion on a 17-year-old student from Pennsylvania without obtaining parental consent. more >>
Lila Rose, president of the pro-life youth led organization Live Action, distributed a 60-page six-year investigative report on Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, to members of Congress Wednesday, asking them to defund the organization.
According to Live Action's multi-state investigative report, "Lies, Corruption, and Scandal: Six Years of Exposing Planned Parenthood," which was distributed to members of Congress and is available online here, Rose and her investigative team have documented the abortion provider covering up the sexual abuse of children; aiding the sexual exploitation of girls; accepting donations to abort black babies and girls; and not informing women about post-abortion PTSD, among other illicit and illegal activities.
To launch their new national campaign, Rose, along with volunteers and interns, walked the halls of Congress to deliver their findings to Republican and Democratic Senate and House members, asking them to review the report and pass legislation to stop using taxpayers' dollars to fund the abortion provider. more >>
PolicyMic, a news organization that claims to know and report on what matters most to young people, tells readers that their promise is to report on "perspectives that aren't typically showcased at other outlets." Yet, a recent article regurgitated one piece of fiction that almost all of the other media outlets have already showcased ad nauseam. And I can't be the only Millennial who is getting annoyed by the lack of integrity in reporting about my generation.
Their recent article, Dear American Women: You Are Being Lied to, lists nine ways in which American women are supposedly being duped by "a society still steeped in the sexism of years past." This is as specific a description that the elusive guilty party of accused liars merits in the piece. (The site has a penchant for churning out lists of reasons why Millennials --well, mostly women and minorities-- are victims of one thing or another. If PolicyMic becomes the paradigm of Millennial reporting, today's young people will undoubtedly go down in history as the self-proclaimed victim generation.)
Number six in the list of nine reasons why women have it so bad in America is, "You are not capable of making your own medical decisions." The accusation reads: more >>
Americans are about evenly split on the issue of abortion. The issue is more likely to be a deciding factor in the vote of pro-lifers than pro-choicers, but there are fewer pro-life registered voters.
Forty-seven percent of Americans consider themselves pro-choice and 46 percent consider themselves pro-life, according to Gallup's May 8-11 poll of 1,028 adults.
With a sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points, the split is too close to say which position has the highest level of support. Since 2009, Lydia Saad wrote for Gallup, abortion attitudes have been "roughly split" with only a few fluctuations. more >>
WASHINGTON – The Rev. Franklin Graham told a large gathering of pastors on Thursday to address controversial issues from the pulpit, declaring that "God hates cowards."
Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, based his remarks on Revelation 21:8, wherein God lists eight groups of people who will be "in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
Of groups like murderers, idolaters, unbelievers, and others, the first group of persons listed were the cowardly. It was this first group that Graham focused on for his speech, titled "Standing Strong on the Controversial Issues," at the Thursday evening session for the 2014 Watchmen on the Wall National Briefing. more >>
Since when did it become "extremist" to be pro-life, pro-family, and pro-marriage?
On May 10th I wrote an article entitled Anti-Christian Activists Will Defeat Themselves. Within days, my thesis was being confirmed.
Last week, Martha MacCallum, sitting in for Megyn Kelly on Fox, hosted a heated exchange between Dana Loesch and Democrat strategist Jessica Erlich "about the Benham Brothers being discriminated against for their Christian beliefs by SunTrust Bank, which had announced that they were cutting business ties with the twin brothers." (SunTrust reversed its decision 24 hours after dropping the Benhams, with apologies.) more >>
