Planned Parenthood actually instructs its supporters to "treat tough questions as general issues and don't respond to specifics." There's a good reason for that. It's because Planned Parenthood's talking points bear little resemblance to the truth.
With each successive undercover video, America is learning more and more about the depraved practices of its number-one abortion provider. But, Planned Parenthood isn't about to give up its $500 million government subsidy without a fight. So, it's continuing to twist the truth and to perpetrate narratives it knows are false.
Below are five of its most commonly repeated myths — and why you shouldn't believe any of them. more >>
Truth is often best captured in the form of a story. As a mom and author I've found few storytellers as sharp as C.S. Lewis, the renowned Christian writer of The Chronicles of Narnia.
In today's current climate, where it seems truth can be thwarted even with video evidence, another Lewis classic comes to mind: The Screwtape Letters, wherein a senior demon gives advice to his underling —revealing insights into human nature along the way.
Taking inspiration from Lewis, what if Screwtape was writing his new underling Dee Struction on how to ensure a child grows up to disregard the precious value of every life? It's a thought experiment to follow to its logical conclusion … more >>
Since 2012, the percentage of registered voters who viewed Planned Parenthood favorably has fallen from 55 percent to 38 percent. Additionally, the percentage of people who support cutting off federal funds to Planned Parenthood increased from 31 to 42 percent. It should also be noted that the much-touted Wall Street Journal/NBC poll fails to mention that Planned Parenthood performs abortions.
It also does not mention anything about the Center for Medical Progress videos. Interestingly, surveys that describe the videos often do see a significant reduction in support for Planned Parenthood. A Reuters poll in August found that after the Center for Medical Progress videos were described to respondents, support for Planned Parenthood funding fell from 54 to 39 percent.
Protesters turned out in hundreds of locations across the country Saturday to demand an end to government funding of Planned Parenthood and raise awareness of the popular abortion provider's practice of selling aborted baby parts.
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress spoke at his local planned Planned Parenthood protest in Orange County, California, while Lila Rose of Live Action spoke at the protest in Pasadena, California. An estimated 70,000 protesters turned out across the nation to protest Planned Parenthood.
"I look forward to the opportunity to speak at my local Planned Parenthood Mega Center, which is one of the high-volume surgical abortion facilities across the country where they have been harvesting and selling aborted baby parts over the past several years," Daleiden said to rally organizers earlier in the week. more >>
Young Yazidi women, who were captured by ISIS terrorists in Iraq and were found to be already pregnant, were forced to undergo unsafe abortions by the terror group's gynecologists before being sold as sex slaves, according to three Yazidis who managed to escape their evil captors.
Three young Yazidis, who now live in the refugee camps of Dohuk in Iraq, told their tragic stories to CNN, even as hundreds of other abducted women and girls remain in the clutches of the Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
"One of my friends was pregnant. Her child was about three months in the womb. They took her into another room. There were two doctors and they did the abortion," a 21-year-old Yazidi woman was quoted as saying. more >>
Are pro-lifers violent? No. But there are those who accuse them of such.
Recently I had the privilege of meeting Troy Newman, the president of the controversial Operation Rescue since the 1990s. Troy is ordained as an elder in the conservative Presbyterian Church in America denomination.
His office in Wichita, Kansas is the national headquarters of the movement. Interestingly it was once an abortion clinic from 1983 until 2006, where 50,000 unborn babies were killed. In earlier times, Troy used to peacefully protest at that clinic. more >>
