Pro-life Evangelical leaders are hoping to build upon the success of the annual March for Life by hosting their first-ever pro-life conference in the nation's capital.
Scheduled to be held Jan. 21-22, the "Evangelicals for Life" event will be hosted by Focus on the Family and the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Evangelicals owe "an incalculable debt" to Roman Catholics who created the March for Life, said ERLC President Russell Moore during an on-the-record conference call Tuesday that included Focus on the Family Community Outreach Vice President Kelly Rosati. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress released its 11th undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood Tuesday in which it shows a Texas-based abortionist describing how she manipulates a baby's position in the womb to pull it out by its feet and trunk first. The technique the abortionist describes, according to pro-life groups, is the same procedure as an illegal partial birth abortion.
In the video, which was recorded during a conference for abortion providers on Oct. 12, 2014, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas abortionist Dr. Amna Dermish is seen describing the methods she uses to perform between 250 and 300 abortions a month, up to 22 weeks gestation, at a clinic where she's the sole provider.
"My aim is to get the specimins out intact," she says, before recounting how she was trained by Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services, Deborah Nucatola, to move the baby to a breech position "using ultrasound guidence." more >>
Defund the WPA!
Oh, wait, the Works Progress Administration, a Roosevelt New Deal federal agency providing Depression-era unemployed with jobs, was dissolved on June 30, 1943. By then the United States was deep in the Second World War, recruiting everyone possible for its military, and putting everybody else to work in war-related industries.
The WPA quickly became the relic of another time. more >>
While the U.S. House votes Friday on a measure to defund Planned Parenthood via the complex reconciliation process, key questions remain unanswered as public tax dollars continue to be entangled with the nonprofit group's finances.
When a series of undercover videos thrust Planned Parenthood into the national spotlight, leaders in Congress began an investigation to make known any unlawful or unethical actions occurring at Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide — facilities which currently receive over $528 million annually from American taxpayers.
Over the past two months, the U.S. House has held four hearings investigating the practices, finances and other aspects of the nation's largest abortion provider. The latest Planned Parenthood hearing held on October 8 offers instructive insights on where the debate stands. more >>
The eldest son of former iconic Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (1919 – 2000), Justin Trudeau was elected Tuesday as the next prime minister of America's northern neighbor. A leader of the Liberal Party of Canada since 2013, Trudeau, 43, represents the Papineau district of Montreal, Quebec. He was baptized Roman Catholic and married in the Catholic Church.
Trudeau, who is the second-youngest prime minister of the country in its history, has vowed to make Canada more open to immigrants and refugees who are fleeing the Islamic State terror group. He has also signaled to President Obama that Canada will end the Royal's Air Force's participation against bombing missions against IS.
Considered predictably liberal in his politics, he does, however, support the Keystone XL pipeline. Many conservatives in the United States and Canada view Trudeau as the Canadian version of Obama. He's in favor of higher taxes for the wealthy, the legalization of marijuana, and increases in spending for social programs. more >>
A video showing abortion executives applauding and laughing about late-term abortions has been leaked to the public.
"An eyeball just fell down into my lap and that's gross, and I say to myself, 'This abortion is going well; it's going safely,'" said Dr. Uta Landy, reading comments from abortion providers during a conference in 2014.
Landy's comments were accompanied by laughter and applause. She is the former director for Planned Parenthood California, according to the por life group Live Action News, and works for the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health in San Francisco. more >>
