Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed into law a bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks with the exception of the health of the mother.
Gov. Walker signed Senate Bill 179, which does not include exemptions for rape and incest, into law on Monday along with two other bills on unrelated matters.
The Center for Medical Progress released a second video Tuesday showing a Planned Parenthood director negotiating prices for aborted baby body parts as well as offering a "less crunchy [abortion] technique" to a pretend biotech company.
Mary Gatter, the medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in California, is seen in the new video negotiating over the price for body parts with the pretend company that Planned Parenthood is now accusing of "harassment." Gatter even offers to ask her staff abortionist to use different tools on women during first-trimester procedures in order to extract in-tact tissue and organs.
"I wouldn't object to asking Ian, who's our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he's going to get an intact specimen," declares Gatter. more >>
The outspoken son of the Reverend Billy Graham has called on the federal government to defund Planned Parenthood following the release of an undercover video showing an employee of the abortion provider discussing the sale of fetal body parts.
Rev. Franklin Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, argued in a Facebook post Sunday morning that the 60 million who have been aborted would likely agree that Planned Parenthood should be defunded if they were alive today.
"If the nearly 60 million human beings who have been legally aborted in this country since Roe vs. Wade were here to vote, I'm pretty sure they'd say to pull the plug on any and all government funding of Planned Parenthood immediately," wrote Rev. Graham. more >>
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.
Clark Sheard, 54, has been in the gospel music industry for over 40 years and is showing no signs of slowing down with her sixth album, Destined to Win.
While she says she's on a mission with her latest musical offering, Clark Sheard also values her role as a wife, mother and first lady of the Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ in Detroit, Michigan. more >>
