The U.S. House of Representatives failed to override a veto to a sweeping piece of legislation that if enacted would defund Planned Parenthood.
While the Tuesday override received a majority in the House with 241 yeas to 186 nays, the Republican-dominated body failed to get the sufficient two-thirds majority of votes to override President Barack Obama's veto of HR 3762.
There's finally an indictment relating to Planned Parenthood's selling of body parts. So why are the forces of death celebrating?
As you've probably heard, a grand jury in Houston, Texas, originally tasked with investigating Planned Parenthood's possible involvement in the sale of fetal tissue and body parts, has decided to instead to shoot the messenger.
Well, not exactly "shoot," but something almost as inappropriate. The Harris County grand jury indicted both David R. Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, and his colleague Sandra Merritt, for "tampering with a government record." Daleiden has also been charged with a misdemeanor related to the attempt to purchase human organs. more >>
In the days leading up to the pivotal Iowa caucuses, a group of Iowa pastors and a number of prominent national Christian leaders have endorsed Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for president, which contrasts the notion that evangelical leaders are coalescing around Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Rubio has repeatedly touted his faith in recent weeks in commercials, during campaign stops and at presidential debates, in a concerted effort to attract the support of the pivotal Iowa evangelical voting bloc, a group that both Cruz and frontrunner Donald Trump have also courted heavily.
In a press release issued Saturday, the Rubio campaign announced a "growing" list of at least 26 Iowa pastors, who represent various Christian denominations and will be supporting Rubio at Monday's Iowa caucuses. more >>
The Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, is applauding United Airlines for censoring a pro-life website on its in-flight entertainment panel.
Lila Rose, president of the Live Action pro-life group, shared on social media this week that during a recent United Airlines flight, she had been censored from accessing her group's Live Action website.
Pro-abortion websites, including Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America, were accessible on the flight, Rose argued in a series of tweets to United Airlines. more >>
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has shown signs throughout the campaign that his once pro-choice attitude and close connections with abortion proponents could play a damaging role in the success of the pro-life movement if he is elected president.
A coalition of 10 prominent female pro-life leaders have signed onto a letter encouraging Iowa Caucus goers to vote for "anyone but Donald Trump," citing concerns that if he wins the Republican nomination he would consider picking a pro-choice vice presidential running mate and if elected president, would consider nominating pro-choice justices to the Supreme Court.
Although Trump now claims to be pro-life and is touting the support he is receiving among rank-and-file evangelical churchgoers, he might not realize that some of the things he says during campaign events show social conservative voters that he is not all that serious about protecting the dignity of the unborn, an issue that many conservative evangelicals take seriously. more >>
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina defended the indicted producers of the undercover Planned Parenthood videos during Thursday night's undercard debate in Iowa, saying that the disturbing facts behind the nation's largest abortion provider have not changed.
Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard, has long cited the Center for Medical Progress' investigative videos from last year that expose atrocious realities behind Planned Parenthood's aborted baby compensation practices throughout her campaign to call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood and the passage of other pro-life measures.
But after Planned Parenthood was cleared by a grand jury in Texas earlier this week and CMP founder, David Daleiden, and one of his associates were indicted on felony charges, Fiorina was asked during the Fox Republican debate in Des Moines whether she had any regrets about citing the Planned Parenthood videos to voice her pro-life message. more >>
