Planned Parenthood claims to be the ultimate "sexual health" expert, especially for women. But, when you look a little deeper, what will you find? A federally funded, corrupt business relying on a vicious cycle of bad decisions.
Not only is the nation's largest abortion vendor currently under investigation by the GAO (Government Accountability Office) for double billing Medicaid, but now they are being paid more than $650,000 as official "Obamacare Navigators" to push women and men to sign up for Obamacare, which they stand to make hundreds of millions from. This puts the federal government and U.S. taxpayers in the same, dirty bed as Planned Parenthood.
This fall, Students for Life of America is exposing Planned Parenthood for the corrupt and dirty abortion vendor they are by taking our Planned Parenthood Project to over 40 schools in 20 states. We want students to know what Planned Parenthood's real plan is for them. more >>

A county in Pennsylvania that was previously ordered to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples by a Commonwealth Court plans to appeal the ruling to the state's Supreme Court, it was announced Tuesday.
D. Bruce Hanes, the clerk of Montgomery County in Pennsylvania, began issuing illegal marriage licenses to same-sex couples in July before being sued by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett's office and the state's health department to stop the rogue practice. Commonwealth Court Judge Dan Pellegrini said in a ruling in early September that Hanes did not have the power as an elected official to break the state's law banning same-sex marriage.
Hanes' lawyers said in the appeal issued to the Supreme Court on Tuesday that they are challenging the Commonwealth Court's previous ruling because they believe the court proceedings contained legal and factual errors. In the appeals documents, Hanes' lawyers question whether the Health Department that sued Hanes had met the burden of proof needed to challenge the clerk and whether the Commonwealth Court had jurisdiction to order Hanes to stop issuing the licenses. more >>
It is no secret that we live in a celebrity-obsessed society. This isn't just an American phenomenon; it's a global phenomenon. We look to celebrities to tell us how to dress, what to eat, even whom to vote for. President Obama used our celebrity obsession to great effect in both of his presidential campaigns.
In the 2012 race, some of Hollywood's most glamorous starlets took to the airwaves warning American women of the holocaust on women's rights that would ensue if Mitt Romney were elected President. In the U.K., international celebrity cosmologist Stephen Hawking has been drafted to the cause of assisted suicide.
The push to legalize assisted suicide in the U.K. has been ongoing for several years. Three times, the British people have rejected the idea, but champions of "end of life choice" will not be deterred. And much in the same way that the American mainstream media does everything in its considerable power to advance the agenda of President Obama, the BBC seems quite happy to use its influence to advance the cause of one, Lord Falconer, and his assisted-suicide legislation. more >>
Woodrow Karey Jr. is charged with fatally shooting Pastor Ronald Harris Sr. during service at the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Authorities revealed that two days before the fatal shooting, Karey's wife filed a rape complaint against Harris, which may be the reason for the shooting.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso told reporters that Harris and Karey's wife had exchanged "inappropriate" text messages before she filed the rape report but did not release the report, given that the investigation is on-going. There were rumors of a sexual relationship between the two, but police have yet to determine whether it was consensual.
"We're trying to put all the pieces together," Mancuso told the Epoch Times. "I'm sure we're going to get responses from both sides, saying that they're both great people and it's my understanding that Pastor Harris and Mr. Karey were great friends at some point. So this makes it very difficult for us to get to the bottom of this if in fact people don't come forth and tell us the truth. We're in that process; it's going to take a long time, but that's where we are in this investigation." more >>
Abortion provider Planned Parenthood, along with two other major groups, filed a lawsuit in federal court late last week challenging Texas' new omnibus abortion law known as House Bill 2 that bans the practice after 20 weeks of pregnancy and requires abortion clinics to meet the higher safety standards of surgical care centers, among other provisions.
Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed the lawsuit against Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and other state officials in Austin's federal court on Friday, arguing that two key provisions of the law make it far more difficult for women in rural areas of Texas to receive abortions, and therefore harm women's health instead of protect it.
The lawsuit challenges two provisions of the new law. The first challenge is against the law's restriction of the so-called "abortion pill" RU-486; the law requires direct doctor supervision when a woman takes the abortion pill. The second challenge is against the law's provision that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their practice. more >>
