The Center for Medical Progress has released its sixth video shining a light on Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts compensation practices. The video claims that Planned Parenthood and its partner, StemExpress, are pressuring women to have abortions and are harvesting babies' body parts without the consent of their mothers.
The video, which was released by CMP Wednesday morning, is the continuation of an interview from the third web video released by CMP in July featuring Holly O'Donnell, an ex-procurement technician for StemExpress.
O'Donnell, who previously said she unknowingly took the job as a fetal tissue procurement officer when she was hired as a phlebotomist, detailed the unethical procurement processes and techniques used by StemExpress agents, as the company's various procurement officers are responsible for collecting specific fetal organs and tissues that meet certain criteria needed for research clients. more >>
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading in the polls for the Republican and Democratic, respectively, presidential nominee, but those polls are not the best indicator of which candidates are currently the strongest. There are better ways to measure who has the best chance of winning the nomination.
Asking voters who they would vote for if the election were held today favors the candidates with the highest name recognition. The candidates who usually win, however, are those who are most acceptable to the broadest range of a party's factions and considered able to win the election.
There are three other measures that, this early in the race, will provide a better picture of who is actually most likely to win the nomination. more >>
According to a recent YouGov poll only 61 percent of those who hold a favorable view of Planned Parenthood have heard about the undercover videos showing the sell of aborted babies' organs and limbs, and only 20 percent have watched the videos.

Based on a prediction model used by Moody's Analytics, it will be another win for the Democrats in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Moody's Analytics, a subsidiary of Moody's Corporation, recently came out with its forecast for the elections.
The prediction model is only able to predict which party will take the White House, and not the nominee who will be seated as the next President. The report said that this model has been used by Moody's to predict election outcomes and it has been able to make accurate predictions since it predicted Ronald Reagan's win in 1980.
The next President will reportedly be a Democrat and it will be a tight race. The model is said to be able to predict the results of the Electoral College, indicating which party will win in every state, so individual nominees are not part of the equation. more >>
