A theologian, author and speaker says The Satanic Temple group's campaign to raise funds for on-demand abortions echos back to satanism's millennial history of "child sacrifice."
"A devil-worshipping group calling itself The Satanic Temple has been working to raise funds to promote abortion-on-demand and to counter legal efforts such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 20-week abortion bans," Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., wrote in an article for Breitbart on Wednesday.
"Satanism has a millennial history of association with child sacrifice, which makes its financial and moral support of abortion a logical corollary to its other activities," he added. more >>
When talking about her head exploding, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., wasn't referring to the content of undercover videos, but Republican efforts to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding.
Gillibrand blasted out a fundraising letter Monday that slammed Republican led efforts to cut federal funding from the popular abortion provider. Gillibrand wrote to potential financial supporters of the effort, "This makes my head explode."
The Weekly Standard printed a copy of the letter sent out via email following the release of two videos depicting Planned Parenthood allegedly profiting from the remains of aborted baby organs and tissue. more >>
In the wake of three shocking videos showing Planned Parenthood discussing and negotiating the sale of fetal body parts, outraged Americans are calling on Congress to de-fund the abortion provider. Planned Parenthood receives more than $540 million dollars annually in taxpayer funding. But, a bill recently introduced in the Senate would redirect that money to agencies that provide for women's health services, including prenatal and postpartum care, as well as cancer screenings.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly is fast-tracking the bill and the Senate reportedly will vote on the legislation before its August recess. A similar bill introduced by Rep. Diane Black of Tennessee is being considered in the House.
As I have talked to friends, both conservative and moderate, I have found a general disgust about Planned Parenthood's participation in what amounts to a human black market. Yet, a poll released yesterday showed that 63% of registered voters oppose cutting off federal funds to the group. Why is that? more >>
Leading Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton called the controversial undercover videos showing officials from Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of organs from aborted fetuses "disturbing" on Tuesday and said it raises questions about the process nationwide.
"I have seen pictures from them and I obviously find them disturbing," said Clinton in an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader Tuesday.
Calls for the public defunding of Planned parenthood have come from several Republican presidential candidates while Planned Parenthood has tried to discredit the Center for Medical Progress which recorded a video describing it as a: "Heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood's participation in tissue donation." more >>
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 >>
