The Center for Medical Progress released its eighth investigative video highlighting Planned Parenthood's aborted baby body parts compensation practices on Tuesday, which purports to show the CEO of StemExpress admitting that abortion clinics "profit" from the sell aborted babies.
The new footage features a meeting between two CMP undercover investigators, who pose as representatives of a fetal tissue procurement company, and Cate Dyer, the CEO of one of Planned Parenthood's former fetal tissue procurement partner company, StemExpress.
In the video, Dyer asserts that contamination in abortion clinics is so bad that many shouldn't be operating because they're fraught with health and safety violations that pose a danger to women's health. more >>
As the Little Sisters of the Poor are petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a federal court decision that forces the order of Catholic nuns to abide by the "Obamacare" contraception mandate, over 20 states, a group of Orthodox Jewish rabbis and a number of Evangelical and secular organizations are urging the high court to take up the case and protect religious liberty.
"We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from such a wide range of people and groups," Sister Loraine Marie Maguire, Mother Provincial for the Little Sisters of the Poor, said in a statement. "We simply ask the government to allow us to continue our ministry of caring for the elderly poor as we have for over 175 years without being forced to violate our faith or pay government fines."
In July, the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious institutions must abide by the exemption rules of the Affordable Care Act's, or "Obamacare's," Health and Human Services contraception mandate. more >>
