In the latest installment of "SexEd: Planned Parenthood's Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids," an Oregon Planned Parenthood counselor is shown telling a 15-year-old girl, who's under the legal age of consent, to watch porn, go to a sex shop, and experiment with bondage and hitting with her boyfriend.
Live Action released its fourth undercover video last week, with others soon to follow, that shows a Planned Parenthood counselor and nurse giving BDSM (bondage and discipline/dominance and submission/sadism and masochism) or "torture sex" advice to a girl whom she believes is only 15.
"The workers are not only telling the underage girls to practice sadomasochism, bondage and discipline — violent and destructive sexual practices — but also to access sex shops and porn websites when there's a question of consent there," Lila Rose president of the pro-life group Live Action, told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly earlier this week. "I think the other bigger question is that some of these relationships are adult-child relationships, statutory rape — we've been investigating that at Planned Parenthood for years. Planned Parenthood doesn't report sexual abuse, so that's another dimension to this." more >>
Despite a dismissive attitude by liberal politicians towards filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza and his latest movie, "America: Imagine a World Without Her," a Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make the docudrama required viewing for most teenagers in the state.
Republican Alan Hays said he'll introduce his one-page bill later this year. The bill states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object, according to The Hollywood Reporter and other media.
"I saw the movie and walked out of the theater and said, 'Wow, our students need to see this.' And it's my plan to show it to my colleagues in the legislature, too, before they're asked to vote on the bill," Hays said. more >>
New videos surfaced Friday that could debunk the claims of Democrats who say that the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," did not intend to deny insurance subsidies in the states that did not set up their own health care exchanges. The finding could lead courts to prevent millions from getting health insurance and to an unraveling of the new health care law, without a legislative fix.
Two federal courts offered separate opinions this week on whether the ACA does not allow health insurance subsidies in states that did not set up their own health care exchange. A D.C. Appeals Court panel sided with Republicans in finding that the plain language of the ACA does not allow subsidies to go to states where the federal government, rather than the state government, set up the health care exchange. A Fourth Circuit panel sided with the Democrats in finding that the law never intended to deny the subsidies in federal exchanges, even if the language of the law suggests that is the case.
"It's absurd to think that Congress intended those subsidies be available only in the state exchanges," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said in a Monday press conference after those court decisions. more >>
America is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
But as we become bogged down in our many problems, I see, unfortunately, a mentality in which we are becoming increasingly a nation of the unfree – the victim – and the timid, in how we're approaching these challenges.

The state of Arizona executed double murderer Joseph Wood this week. The convicted killer was injected with a combination of lethal drugs that eventually caused his death; however, it took too long according to some observers.
After being administered the drugs, Wood lingered for almost two hours before dying. Witnesses included reporter Troy Hayden who said the execution was "botched" and that Wood's last words were similar to "a fish on shore gulping for air."
While Hayden complained that the execution was "very disturbing to watch," U.S. Senator John McCain noted that it was "terrible" and amounted to "torture." more >>
