Pro-Abortion Group Sues Group Behind Planned Parenthood Videos

08/01/2015 Comments (26)

Well, you knew this was coming.

A pro-abortion organization is suing the Center for Medical Progress which recently released videos showing Planned Parenthood staff discussing the possible illegal sale of limbs and organs of aborted babies. The National Abortion Federation is accusing the CMP of violating the privacy of its members and therefore threatening their safety. The suit, filed in a federal court in San Francisco, is seeking to block the release of further videos.

So a judge issued a temporary restraining order blocking the CMP from releasing videos concerning to any NAF members. A hearing is scheduled for Monday.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick, who is, according to the FEC,...READ MORE

Obama DOJ to Investigate…the Center for Medical Progress

07/27/2015 Comments (21)

Videos by the Center for Medical Progress clearly shows top officials from Planned Parenthood discussing selling human body parts for profit, performing partial birth abortions, and discussing the destruction of the unborn in the most reprehensible and inhumane ways. So, of course, the Obama administration has decided to investigate...the Center for Medical Progress.

Politico reports:

While congressional committees investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices, the Justice Department agreed to look into whether the group that released the sting videos obtained the footage legally. In response to a request by House Democrats, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday afternoon that...READ MORE

Videos Put Pro-Lifers in the Driver's Seat

“Not one more taxpayer dollar should go to Planned Parenthood and I intend to make that goal a reality.” -Rand Paul

Rand Paul is not sounding an uncertain trumpet here and even introduced an amendment to a highway bill to cut $500 million in taxpayer funding that annually is sent to Planned Parenthood. I like it.

Representative Diane Black introduced a bill for an immediate moratorium on all federal funding to Planned Parenthood for one year while Congress investigates the group in light of videos from the Center for Medical Progress which shows the abortion giant haggling over the cost of fetal body parts. Gov. Chris Christie vowed that if he's elected president he too will defund...READ MORE

Her Tone Was Not the Problem

07/18/2015 Comments (32)

So imagine this: You're caught on video munching on a salad and slurping red wine while chortling about how you crush babies in order to maximize profit and you apologize for...YOUR TONE?

What? Is there an appropriate tone that makes discussing tearing humans apart limb from limb for profit acceptable?

Planned Parenthood's president Cecile Richard offered an apology for what the abortion giant's top doctor said in the now infamous video. "Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion. This is unacceptable, and I personally apologize for the staff member's tone and statements," said...READ MORE

How the Media is Running Cover for Planned Parenthood

07/15/2015 Comments (19)

The undercover video by the Center for Medical Progress is nothing short of a disaster for Planned Parenthood and the pro-death culture. Anyone who views it can not help but be disgusted by the abortion giant's top doctor munching on salad and wine while cavalierly explaining how she crushes children to maximize the profit from selling them for parts. It's horrifying.

It's also interesting how "potential humans" seem to have actually human organs, isn't it?

So Planned Parenthood is in trouble so therefore cue the media lifeline. Now, I'd have to imagine that the first instinct from the subjective media was simply to ignore the video much as they do with most undercover videos which show...READ MORE

Christian Bakers Lose Free Speech Rights

07/07/2015 Comments (68)

A judge has ruled that a Christian baker not only must pay $135,000 to a lesbian couple whose wedding cake the baker refused to make but is also forbidden to speak publicly about it. You see, the bakers at Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon had received many donations when their case became public.

The judge clearly didn't like the baker receiving donations online from traditional marriage advocates who support their refusal to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding ceremony so forbade them from publicizing the case. As Rachel Lu from The Federalist wrote:

...the Oregon labor commissioner, Brad Avakian, wanted to silence them because the content of their speech. Presumably he was angry that the...READ MORE

Everything is Not Fine

06/30/2015 Comments (27)

I woke up this morning with a clear memory of my departed brother's face in my mind. He was smiling. I was so thankful for it because even seeing a picture isn't the same as a clear picture in your mind. So I woke up thankful. And that's a nice way to wake up.

It's an odd thing about losing a loved on. When they pass away, it's not just that you can't imagine them not being in this world; it's that you can't understand the world going on without them. I remember when my brother passed away, I walked outside the hospice and was surprised to see cars zooming by and even clouds moving. You can't quite believe everything and everyone is acting like the most important thing in the world didn't...READ MORE

A Missed Miracle

06/25/2015 Comments (18)

I knew a young woman in college. When I saw her around campus she was always smiling and funny. She tended to stay on the outskirts of crowds but when approached she was fun. When I’d see her at parties she was often drunk. Not just tipsy. Drunk.

We weren’t tight but knew each other well enough that if we saw each other at a party we’d typically meet at the keg at some point, make some sarcastic comments, and move on. But that pretty much sums up most of my interactions throughout my youth. I dropped my punch line and moved on. The moment I speak I’m looking to exit the stage. I moved on.

One night I was making my way out of a party in some dorm and I saw her sitting on the curb. It was...READ MORE
