During the third presidential debate between political rivals Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last Wednesday, the former secretary of state failed the women she purports to represent by perpetuating several myths about abortion and Planned Parenthood that have been proven untrue.
Either by sheer ignorance or cunning deception, Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, misled viewers of the Fox News debate when she said Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings; China no longer forces women to have abortions; late-term abortions are necessary to save the lives of mothers, and Planned Parenthood is needed to provide healthcare for women.

Former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is asking Americans to pray for a U.S. Secret Service agent who's battling cancer, which Palin called an "unfair, evil disease."
"Prayers are needed for U.S. Secret Service agent Julia Simpson in her serious battle with cancer," Palin wrote to supporters on her Facebook page on Tuesday.
"Julia's always been a favorite! Assigned to our VP campaign security detail, it was a joy getting to know her as a woman of integrity and a hardworking professional with a servant's heart," she added, sharing a photo of the two at an event. more >>
In response to Hillary Clinton's defense of partial-birth and late-term abortions at Wednesday night's debate, a California obstetrician-gynecologist has reportedly taken to Facebook to decry the claim that third-trimester abortion is necessary to help save the life of the mother.
The Democratic presidential nominee defended her opposition to bans on late-term and partial-birth abortions by arguing that there are cases in which mothers and families are forced to make "the most heartbreaking, painful decisions" because they get news that the woman's health may be in jeopardy.
As Clinton effectively supports a woman's right to abort up until birth, she has defended her opposition to 20-week late-term abortion bans by saying that bans should only be put in place at the "very end" of the third trimester and should allow for health of the mother exceptions. more >>
Among the top four issues for voters going into the general election on Nov. 8, health care trails only the economy, terrorism and foreign policy according to the Pew Research Center, and presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are sharply divided on the issue.
At the center of the debate between the candidates is President Barack Obama's signature 2010 health care law, Obamacare.
Former President Bill Clinton, husband of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, called the health care law "the craziest thing in the world" earlier this month before trying to walk back his comments a day later. more >>
While Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton prides herself on being one of the biggest supporters of abortion and the nation's largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood, her Republican counterpart Donald Trump has said that he will be no friend to the abortion industry if he wins the Oval Office.
For pro-lifers, former Sec. of State Clinton is disqualified from receiving their votes because of her strong stance in support of an abortion industry that has killed nearly 60 million unborn babies since 1973, and her belief that an unborn child has no rights.
A United States federal appeals court has upheld a California law that opponents say infringes upon the free speech and religious freedom rights of pro-life pregnancy centers by forcing them to inform pregnant mothers and families about the option of abortion.
Last Friday, a three-judge panel on the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the California Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act, stating in its opinion that such a law forcing all licensed pregnancy-related clinics to inform their patients of all publicly-funded family planning services, including abortion and contraception, through a disseminated notice is constitutional.
The ruling comes despite arguments from opponents that the legislation violates the First Amendment rights of pro-life pregnancy clinics. more >>
