I was filling out a form at the doctor's office the other day when I was reminded of a stark truth: Biological, genetic males will never be females, no matter how much surgery they have and no matter how many hormones they take.
The medical form had a line that said: "FEMALES: Time of last menstruation?" – and in a flash, I said to myself, Yes! There really are differences between males and females!
And that's another reason why Bruce Jenner will never be a woman, no matter how hard he tries. (Let me pause for a moment for all those who want to shout, "Bigot! Hater! Transphobe! You're worse than Hitler!" Go ahead and get that out of your system, then you can keep reading. But feel free to pause every so often to vent your feelings.) more >>
While the undercover video showing that Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted babies was obviously offensive to pro-lifers, there was a part of the video that should have offended the sensibilities of those who support legalized abortion, because it showed that Planned Parenthood violates three pro-choice values.
Pro-choicers argue 1) women's health is important, 2) healthcare decisions should be made by patients, in consultation with their physicians, and 3) women should have the freedom to make their own choices with regard to abortion. The harvesting of fetal organs by Planned Parenthood is in opposition to all three of those.
In the video produced by The Center for Medical Progress, two people behind the hidden cameras posing as fetal tissue buyers are having a conversation over lunch with Deborah Nucatola, an abortionist and Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services. more >>
Beyoncé Knowles and Mariah Carey are two of the many powerhouse singers who've named gospel legend Karen Clark Sheard as a vocal influence. But the the veteran gospel songstress says she hopes to be remembered for more than what she has done on stage.

The biotechnology company named in a secret video recording of a Planned Parenthood executive casually discussing over a meal and wine the harvesting of fetal organs sells "fresh" fetal liver samples for as high as $12,124 while its cryopreserved fetal samples go for $24,250.
"Fetal Liver CD133+ Stem/Progenitor Cells (FL-CD133) are positively selected from homogenized liver tissue," StemExpress explains on page 56 of its 2015 product catalog. Prices for fetal liver tissue samples range from $3,031 to $24,250, depending on a client's interest as well as the format and quantity of the cells. The company also sells four other kinds of cells derived from fetal liver, according to its catalog, which states that the products are "For In Vitro Research Use Only."
StemExpress LLC, registered in California in March 4, 2010, by Catherine Dyer, states on its website that it is "a multi-million dollar company that supplies human blood, tissue products, primary cells and other clinical specimens to biomedical researchers around the world to fuel regenerative medicine and translational research." more >>
An appeals court has ruled against a Catholic order of nuns in their lawsuit against the Obama administration's birth control mandate.
The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday against the Little Sisters of the Poor, concluding that having to fill out a form requesting that an another party provide insurance for contraceptives does not violate the order's religious liberty.
"Although we recognize and respect the sincerity of Plaintiffs' beliefs and arguments, we conclude the accommodation scheme relieves Plaintiffs of their obligations under the Mandate and does not substantially burden their religious exercise under RFRA or infringe upon their First Amendment rights," read the Tenth Circuit's decision. more >>
An in-depth undercover video released Tuesday shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing how the billion dollar organization harvests and sells the intact body parts of aborted babies to fetal tissue wholesalers.
The video, first unveiled at the Center for Medical Progress website, is part of a three-year investigation into what the Center for Medical Progress is calling "illegal" practices by Planned Parenthood. Once received by fetal tissue wholesalers, the body parts are shipped to universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.
Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services who performs abortions up to 24 week gestation in Los Angeles, is captured in the video from July 25, 2014, saying the clinics perform partial birth abortions to secure fetal body parts. more >>
