David Daleiden, head of the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, alleges that StemExpress — a biotechnology company that sells aborted baby organs for tens of thousands of dollars — is trying to use the courts to block the release of future undercover videos because they might reveal "evidence of born alive infants."
"In a meeting with their top leadership they [StemExpress] admitted they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants," Daleiden asserted on CNN Friday.
California-based StemExpress is "very scared," he said, about seeing the next undercover videos released to the public because they might reveal illegal partial-birth abortions are being carried out to obtain intact tissue and organs for research. more >>
Planned Parenthood claimed this week that its website was hacked by "extremists," but some media outlets are asking questions regarding the validity of its allegations, even going so far as to call it a "PR stunt."
Media reports of the hacking of Planned Parenthood's website surfaced Monday with The Christian Post reporting the story of the purported hacking by a "shadowy" pro-life group. The Associated Press made mention of the possible security breach in a Wednesday story regarding Planned Parenthood's call for a federal study on fetal tissue research, and its report seemed to question some of the organization's claims:
The group also took its websites down after a hacker attack it blamed on "anti-abortion extremists" blocked access by what Planned Parenthood said are the sites' 200,000 daily visitors. The organization declined to say publicly how it knew the attackers were abortion foes, and said it fixed the problem but took its sites down for the day to "ensure that we are fully protected." more >>
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson teamed up with comedian Joel McHale to raise $24,000 for children with cancer by towing a Boeing 737 airplane.
Wilson, the "team captain" in the initiative called "Strong Against Cancer" launched by the Seattle Children's Hospital and Research Foundation, competed against Seattle native McHale to tug a 92,000-pound Alaska Airlines 737-800 aircraft 25 feet.
Wilson and McHale, who grew up in Seattle, spent three weeks handpicking their teams out of members of Alaska's maintenance and engineering employees along with Washington residents on Alaska's Facebook page. Alaska's Mileage Plan members in the Seattle area purchased tickets to attend the event where they cheered on their celebrity team captains from the bleachers. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released its fourth undercover video shining a light on Planned Parenthood's controversial aborted baby parts compensation practices, which purports to show a vice president of the organization negotiating a deal and discussing how to avoid legal consequences.
The video, which was released on Thursday, allegedly shows Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Dr. Savita Ginde, discussing illicit compensation for aborted baby parts, the sale of such parts across state lines, and the importance of having Planned Parenthood affiliates and its legal teams on the same page so that such transactions look good in the eye of the "public sector."
The new video shows two investigators posing as tissue procurement officers for a human biologics company discussing the possibility of securing only "intact specimens" with Ginde during a visit to a Denver "mega-abortion clinic" headquarters on April 7 of this year. more >>
Due to an objection with an Affordable Care Act mandate that requires health insurance plans to offer base birth control, Wheaton College has announced that it will no longer offer health insurance to its students to avoid conflicting with the institution's Christian convictions.
The decision, announced to its students on July 10, effectively strips about a quarter of the suburban Chicago non-denominational liberal arts school's undergraduate and graduate students of their health care plans, which is about 700-plus individuals.
As one of the most contested aspects of Obamacare has been the requirement for health insurance plans to provide birth control and emergency contraceptives, a number of Christian organizations have cried foul, claiming that the law violates their religious beliefs. more >>
In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
Holly O'Donnell, who was hired as a phlebotomist, passed out on her first day of working at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic after she was directed to pick up a baby's dismembered leg using tweezers.
"I could feel death and pain shoot up my body," she exclaimed. "I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses." more >>
