Three major American corporations have told the nation's largest abortion provider that they no longer want to be listed as corporate sponsors after two recent viral videos purport to show representatives of Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of baby body parts.
Officials from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox have told The Daily Signal, a news site founded by the conservative Heritage Foundation, that they have asked the abortion giant to remove their companies' names from the abortion provider's list of corporate donors.
The move comes after the Daily Signal posted the names of Planned Parenthood's 41 corporate sponsors — a list that is no longer available on the Planned Parenthood website — following the controversy surrounding the recently released undercover videos by Center for Medical Progress. more >>
The Republican establishment is in a panic about the rise of Donald Trump and how he has dominated the debate and set the agenda for the early stages of the Republican presidential nomination.
With the first debate only a few weeks away they are desperate to silence Trump and marginalize his issues, but every time they attack him his numbers go up.
What the Republican establishment, and the Washington political elite in general can't seem to grasp is Trump's support is coming from the same place in American politics that the 2009 Tea Party movement came from. more >>
Former President Jimmy Carter has said in an interview that he does not believe Jesus Christ would support abortion in most cases, identifying the "only conflict" he's had between his political duties and Christian faith.
"I have never believed that Jesus would be in favor of abortion, unless it was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life was in danger. That's been the only conflict I've had in my career between political duties and Christian faith," Carter told The New York Times in an interview posted on Friday.
How can we claim to be superior to nations who commit genocide when we commit infanticide? Destroying innocent life and harvesting human organs is beyond barbaric -- it is unimaginably immoral, grotesque, and evil.
Only evil could treat the organs of innocent babies as if they were fan belts, fenders, or fuel lines for a Ford -- to be swapped, sold, discarded and disposed at the whims of a mechanic.
Each year, Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions, and 92 percent of pregnant women who walk into Planned Parenthood receive an abortion. Since 1973, abortion has ended the lives of 60 million babies, and we will never know how many of these souls were harvested to the highest bidder. more >>
An appeals court panel has ruled unanimously against a family-owned pharmacy suing Washington for an exemption to the state's birth control mandate.
A three judge panel from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Ralph's Thriftway must provide birth control items like the Plan B pill, which could be an abortifacient under certain circumstances, reversing a lower court decision.
Arguments were heard last November before Judges Susan P. Graber, Richard R. Clifton, and Mary H. Murguia. Graber authored the panel's opinion. more >>
President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon must recognize the ongoing mass murder, torture and rape of Christians, Yezidis, and other religious minorities at the hands of IS as a "genocide," former Congressman Frank R. Wolf said earlier this week.
"Genocidal intent can clearly be seen in Islamic State's ideology and mission which is directed toward the creation of a global caliphate that has been purged of every man, woman and child deemed to be an 'unbeliever' through either forced conversion or death," Wolf said in a letter to Obama and Ban.
"In Iraq, this has manifested most clearly in the insurgency's actions against Christians and Yezidis. They have been killed, tortured, kidnapped, raped, sold into slavery, and forcibly removed from their homeland." more >>
