The pro-life group Center for Medical Progress released its latest undercover video Monday which shows National Abortion Federation officials discussing the sell of aborted babies' tissue for profit as a "win-win."
In the latest video in CMP's investigative series, NAF officials are seen discussing a "group purchasing program" for compensation in the harvesting of baby body parts even though it's a federal crime for any person to profit off of the sell of tissue, organs and limbs going to research.
When the CMP investigator mentions donating a portion of the fees received from researchers to abortion clinics, a NAF representative replies that their members would be interested in such an arrangement. more >>
There is a key to achieving understanding and racial harmony where there is confusion and discord, says Phillip Holmes, a writer and the co-founder of the Reformed African American Network (RAAN), in a post last week on the website DesiringGod.org.
Having grown up in the majority black town of Pickens, Mississippi, Holmes eventually moved 45 minutes south to Jackson where he attended a majority white college, a majority white church, and a majority white seminary. So he's learned a thing or two when it comes to race relations.
"Over the years I've learned that the conversation is complicated and how we view the world and ourselves can radically shape how we engage one another." more >>
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says that fellow candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz asked to have a private meeting with him to "clear the air" after Cruz's campaign misreported at the Iowa Caucuses that Carson was going to suspended his campaign.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Carson said that Cruz approached him during an off-camera break at last Saturday's Republican presidential debate in New Hampshire to apologize for his campaign's behavior at the caucuses and also asked to have a private sit-down to discuss the matter.
"He said he's sorry that this happened and he wants to sit down and talk," Carson was quoted as saying. "He wants to discuss the whole thing and clear the air." more >>

A former Department of Homeland Security employee accused the Obama administration of forcing him to scrub records from the agency's counterterror databases that detail Muslims with connections to terrorist groups that could have prevented deadly terror attacks on American soil.
In the wake of President Barack Obama's visit last week to a Baltimore mosque that some conservatives say has ties to terrorist groups like Muslim Brotherhood, former DHS employee Philip Haney wrote a Friday op-ed for The Hill arguing that the Obama administration has put Americans' lives in danger for the sake of political correctness.
"After leaving my 15 year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America's counter-terror strategy," Haney wrote. "Our leaders' willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness — and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack." more >>
The National Abortion Rights Action League took to Twitter Sunday night to express outrage after a Doritos commercial during Super Bowl 50 gave personality to an unborn baby who simply wanted some of his dad's cheesy tortilla chips.
The 30-second commercial features a pregnant mother getting ultrasound at nine months. As the OB/GYN explains that the baby is due "any day now," the father of the baby is over on the side of the room eating a bag of nacho cheese Doritos.
"Really? You are eating Doritos?" the mom asks the dad. more >>
