The Center for Medical Progress has released a video that purports to show overlooked evidence that reveals how a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic used accounting gimmicks to disguise its illegal profiting from the sell of aborted baby parts to researchers.
The Tuesday release of CMP's latest video comes two days before CMP's indicted founder, David Daleiden, will present himself in Harris County court to address felony and misdemeanor charges that came as a result of a grand jury investigation into a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic's fetal tissue reimbursement practices.
Although CMP and pro-life supporters believe that CMP's fifth video released last year shows a Houston Planned Parenthood official explaining how the clinic skirts around state and federal fetal tissue reimbursement laws, it was Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, who were indicted with felony charges last month for tampering with governmental records, while officials from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast were cleared of criminal wrongdoing. more >>
The U.S. House of Representatives failed to override a veto to a sweeping piece of legislation that if enacted would defund Planned Parenthood.
While the Tuesday override received a majority in the House with 241 yeas to 186 nays, the Republican-dominated body failed to get the sufficient two-thirds majority of votes to override President Barack Obama's veto of HR 3762.
As the removal of five Romanian Pentecostal kids from their parents' custody over spanking allegations has enraged thousands of global supporters, some Christian leaders in Norway are combating the notion that parental and religious freedoms are being violated by the Norwegian government.

As spanking and other forms of physical punishment are considered illegal under Norwegian law, the Barnevernet (Norway's child services agency) placed the five children of the Romanian Pentecostal migrant couple in three separate foster homes while their parents have been granted limited visitation rights. more >>
Some Tyra Banks fans might be wondering where the former Victoria's Secret model hid her baby bump for nine months, following the birth of her son, York, last week. That's because she and her boyfriend of two years, Erik Asla, found a surrogate to birth their new born son, York Banks Asla, who was introduced to the world last week in an Instagram post.
"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," the former TV host captioned a photo showing a baby's traditional hospital hat. "He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy's mouth and chin."
Banks, 42, and her boyfriend, 50, owe it all to someone they pegged an angel, a gestational surrogate who birthed their child. "As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone," she added. more >>
In what must be one of the cleverest semi-subtle sex jokes of the modern era, the National Football League has given the world a musical commercial about one way people celebrate winning the Super Bowl.
Apparently, according to research cities that win the Super Bowl always get an increase in births approximately nine months after the big game. Hmmm … I wonder why.
Less than a week away from Super Bowl L (or as some insist on calling it, Super Bowl 50), the NFL brought together multiple choirs of people born about nine months after the Super Bowl. more >>
