Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are expected to investigate Planned Parenthood following the release of an undercover video showing an employee speaking casually of selling the body parts of aborted fetuses.
Earlier this week a pro-life group called the Center for Medical Progress released a viral video showing a Planned Parenthood employee speaking of selling fetal body parts.
In a statement released Wednesday, Speaker of the House John Boehner called upon both Congress and the executive branch to investigate the matter further. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan's Purse, said on Wednesday that people who perform abortions have "no conscience." His comment is a response to the undercover video released earlier this week that shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing the sell of fetal organs, such as hearts, lungs, livers, as well as limbs.
"Abortion is a sin and is clearly murder in God's eyes. The people who perform it have no conscience, so I'm not at all surprised that they would be selling organs, tissue, and body parts from babies. Planned Parenthood should be put out of business. They've done enough damage," wrote Graham on Facebook.
Graham also said he believes abortion will bring God's judgement on America. more >>
David Dalieden, project lead for the undercover video that caught a Planned Parenthood abortionist talking about selling aborted babies' body parts, has fired back at the organization's claims that the investigative report was "heavily edited" and "falsely portrays" its "mission."
Eric Fererro, Planned Parenthood's vice president of communications, argued Tuesday that California-based Center for Medical Progress, a group dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances, is: "A well funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood's mission and services [that] has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood's participation in tissue donation programs ..."
In the video titled "Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts," Deborah Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood abortionist, said she plans her weekly abortion procuedures with the intent to extract and sell organs. "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver ... I'm not gonna crush that part," says Nucatola. "I'm going to basically crush below, I'm not gonna crush above, and I am gonna see if I can get it all intact." more >>
A Michigan megachurch has raised approximately $8,500 to aid the victims of a Ponzi scheme orchestrated by a man who once donated some of his stolen money to the congregation.
Resurrection Life Church of Grandville gathered the sum via a special fund they created to aid the 800 some victims of David McQueen, who was behind a $46 million Ponzi scheme.
Although the $8,500 pales in comparison to the $300,000 of stolen money McQueen gave to Resurrection Life, John Agar of mlive.com noted that "it's better than what a lot of others have offered." more >>
The New England Conference of United Methodist Churches, a group of 600 churches spanning six states, voted in favor of a resolution Saturday which calls for an end to the war on drugs because it is the Christian thing to do.
"In the love of Christ, who came to save those who are lost and vulnerable, we urge the creation of a genuinely new system for the care and restoration of victims, offenders, criminal justice officials, and the community as a whole," said the resolution, in part, according to a release from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition.
"Restorative justice grows out of biblical authority, which emphasizes a right relationship with God, self and community. When such relationships are violated or broken through crime, opportunities are created to make things right," it continued. more >>
A 7-year-old old boy was rescued from the clutches of a suspected kidnapper last Wednesday after being abducted from his home in Alice, Texas, all because a Papa Murphey's pizza shop worker, who normally ignored Amber Alerts on her phone, decided to pay attention this time.
Courtney Best, the pizza shop worker, told KRIS-TV that she was taking a smoke break in front of the pizza shop in the Hamlin Shopping Center in Corpus Christi when she spotted Nicholas Gomez and the suspected kidnapper Channing Galbraith.
"I stepped outside, I was standing by the trash can and I seen a white car pull up and I just happen to take my phone with me, cause we don't look at our phones at work, and I looked down and I saw 'white Dodge Avenger Amber Alert.' And I was like, nah, that's not him," said Best. "The man was walking across the parking lot looking at me ... cause I was the only person out here, with the little boy and the little boy looked scared and I was like no, that's not him." more >>
