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.

According to the Daily Star, the Arabic language media outlet Al Sumaria first reported that a man dubbed the Sniper of Mosul, who has reportedly been hunting IS jihadis in Iraq's largest stronghold, helped save the life of an Iraqi teenager accused of supporting the coalition offensive to push IS out of the city.

The Chinese government wants to stave off demographic catastrophe. Problem is, the Chinese people don't care what the government thinks.
Over the past decade or more, we've talked on BreakPoint about China's looming fertility crisis. This, of course, is the result of the Communist Party instituting what became known as the "one-child policy" back in 1979.
With very few exceptions, Chinese couples were permitted to have only one child. The policy, in the words of the Washington Post, "led to untold millions of forced abortions, sterilizations and horrific abuses of power." more >>

WASHINGTON — The Ewan McGregor film "American Pastoral," which opens in theaters Friday, starring Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning hints that a couple's mixed-faiths can negatively impact the family.
When Lou Levov (Perter Riegert), the Jewish owner of a New Jersey-based glove factory, urges his son Seymour (Ewan McGregor) not to marry a local Catholic beauty queen and a former Miss New Jersey, Dawn Dwyer (Jennifer Connelly), but to marry within the faith, Lou wonders what religion his grandchild will be. Dawn says they will leave the decision up to the child.
The advances to 1968 — the year Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, America was preparing to send a man to the moon, the cost of gas was 34 cents, and life was ideal within the country's upper middle class. But outside of that bubble was a world in a state of flux and violence was about to arrive at the doorstep of the Levov family. more >>
