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 >>
A pro-life hacktivist group has stolen confidential data from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, claiming that they will release the information soon.
Known as "3301", the group reportedly hacked the controversial pro-choice organization Sunday evening, stealing among other things names and email addresses for employees.
The U.S. Senate will soon vote on a piece of proposed legislation meant to defund the controversial abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky introduced a bill banning all federal funding of Planned Parenthood last Friday.
The Islamic State's most famous executioner, "Jihadi John," notorious for being featured in videos last year that purportedly showed him beheading Western journalists, aid workers and other innocent victims, is now allegedly on the run from the terror group amid fears that other ISIS militants are out to kill him.
Mohammed Emwazi, a 26-year-old Kuwaiti-born former London resident who is more commonly known by his alias of Jihadi John, became infamous late last summer when a series of widely publicized videos allegedly showed him executing Americans Steven Sotloff, James Foley and Peter Kassig, as well as British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning.
The videos, in which Emwazi also recited ISIS' propaganda messages before killing his victims, were arguably the first real glimpses into just how barbaric the Islamic State really is when it comes to implementing its brand of jihad. more >>
NFL quarterback Peyton Manning has set up a fund for victims of the July Chattanooga shootings that killed four Marines and a Navy sailor.
Proceeds of the Chattanooga Heroes Fund will go directly to the families of the victims. Manning, who played college football and graduated from the University of Tennessee, set up the fund to help "bridge a gap between the short-term financial needs" and future financial challenges for the families.
"Our family has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the great city of Chattanooga, and it has a very special place in our hearts," Manning said. "But on July 16 this strong, welcoming community was forever changed by the tragedy that unfolded. more >>
An outspoken Chicago priest known for his social activism has said rapper Chief Keef's music is a contributing factor in the murder and violence plaguing the city, and even criticized a benefit concert the rapper planned to raise money for a friend who was murdered earlier this month.
"Chief Keef has announced that he will hold a benefit concert to raise funds for his friend and the baby who were killed this past weekend. … Really[?]" wrote Pfleger on Facebook last Monday. Chief Keef is one of the reasons we have all this violence. … He has been one of the encourager's of the violence. … Instead of having a concert, why doesn't he man up and acknowledge it's time to stop the violence."
While the priest took aim at Keef and his concert on social media, he did tell The Christian Post on Friday that the rapper's music is not the sole reason for the violence in Chicago. more >>
