The jury is still out on what actually happened with the Harris County grand jury

Last week, Center for Medical Progress founder, David Daleiden, was indicted by a grand jury in Harris County, Texas along with his colleague Sandra Merritt. The two were instrumental in uncovering Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and trafficking of baby body parts, especially at Planned Parenthood of Houston, which is Planned Parenthood’s affiliate in Harris County.

Late-term abortionist troubled by “disdain” of other doctors

In 2009, Esquire reporter John H. Richardson wrote an article about late-term abortionist Warren Hern after touring Hern’s Boulder, Colorado, abortion facility. Richardson observed abortion workers going about their business and interviewed Hern at length.  Since most abortionists tend to try and hide the actual carnage in their facilities from the press, it is probable that Hern didn’t show Richardson an abortion; at any rate, there is no description of a late term abortion procedure in Richardson’s article.

This is not surprising. After all, Hern does abortions all the way up until birth and even advertises it on his website. An eyewitness description of one of these abortions would be bound to turn the stomach of an editor or, in fact, any sane person.

Dismembering perfectly formed babies or injecting their hearts with poison does not faze Hern, but there is one thing that does bother him: that many doctors view him and other abortionists – to put it politely – in a very negative light.

NARAL spent Super Bowl 50 complaining about babies

There are countless people who get excited about seeing which team will be this year’s world champion at every Super Bowl, but the commercials are also a big draw for viewers. As there are millions of people tuning in for the Super Bowl, ad agencies spend big bucks to present the best commercials of the year. One commercial that got a lot of attention was from Doritos, which featured a preborn baby who apparently already loves the chips:

Seems like a harmless, funny little ad, right? Wrong — this ad made NARAL furious.

For abortion advocates, more babies are a reason for ‘sad face’ emojis

0876The U.S. Supreme Court will hear Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt on March 2, which will examine if Texas’s law (HB2) requiring abortion centers to be held to the same standards as surgical outpatient centers and requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at hospitals places an “undue burden” on women seeking an abortion. While HB2 has been in effect, an estimated 10,000 lives have been saved in Texas from abortion. Many would forget that these children are living, breathing human beings.

Abortion advocates claim that women dangerously self-abort when they can’t access abortion or birth control (ignoring the dangers of even legal abortions performed at abortion centers). They even came up with a faulted study to support these claims.

But now, seemingly overnight, they’ve changed the argument – they’ve decided that Texas women have actually just been having a whole lot of children they can’t support.

Pro-lifers respond to attacks on pro-life stance of Rubio, Cruz

Two of the top presidential contenders, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, have recently come under fire for their consistently pro-life position – not from the abortion lobby, but from other Republican presidential hopefuls. Now, a national pro-life organization with hundreds of thousands of members is calling for an end to the attacks.

In an open letter addressed to Governors Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Jim Gilmore, and John Kasich, along with Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, the Susan B. Anthony List urges “a swift and decisive end to the attacks other candidates and their surrogates are making concerning the courageous pro-life positions of Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.” The letter is in response to a litany of statements which sound far more like “Planned Parenthood talking points,” as SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser noted, than the position of a party which claims to stand for the protection of the preborn.

Study on Texas birth control decline not the knockout Planned Parenthood fans hoped for

Abortion defenders have seized upon a new study out of the University of Texas that supposedly reveals that the state cutting off Planned Parenthood from women’s health funds is responsible for both a drop in acquiring birth control and a spike in births to poor mothers. But before we prematurely declare the science settled based on unfounded conclusions from overhyped “research,” let’s look at what they actually found:

No explicit connection is made in the study between the exclusion of Planned Parenthood clinics and fewer women obtaining long-lasting forms of contraception.

Oh. So “study guesses that defunding Planned Parenthood hurt birth control” would be a more accurate headline.

Video: Planned Parenthood uses ‘gimmicks’ to hide profits from harvesting baby parts

(Newsbusters) Two days before Center for Medical Progress Project Lead David Daleiden goes to court, his organization is condemning Planned Parenthood for “accounting gimmicks to hide its illegal sale of fetal tissue.”

NARAL president’s abortion story an example of modern feminism’s failure

Despite the oft-repeated pro-choice claim that women don’t take abortion lightly, NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue has published a video online which follows in lock-step alongside other abortion rights leaders like Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, openly admitting that her abortion was for reasons of convenience – not for a “hard case.”

Hogue’s contraception failed, and because she believed she couldn’t achieve her dreams if she gave birth to a child, she chose abortion out of convenience:

Abortionists justify themselves by claiming preborn don’t have souls

In his book Abolishing Abortion: How You Can Play a Part in Ending the Greatest Evil of Our Day, Father Frank Pavone writes about conversations he has had with abortionists.  Pavone is the head of Priests for Life, and his travels and speaking engagements have brought him face-to-face with different abortion doctors.  He’s come to identify some of the strategies abortionists use to justify their work. One strategy he has observed is the tendency to deny that the preborn baby has a soul. Pavone recalls:

Among the most memorable conversations I have had are with practicing abortionists. A number of them have admitted to me that they know they are killing a child, but they justify it by saying, “I don’t know when the child receives a soul.” I was stunned upon first hearing this and replied, “If you don’t know when the child receives a soul, then you don’t know whether the newborn has a soul. Does that and give you the right to kill the newborn?

Abortion activists use Zika virus fears to push for more abortions

Brazil is considered to be one of the most pro-life countries in the world. Abortion is completely illegal there, unless the mother’s life is in danger or the pregnancy is a result of rape. This has been a thorn in the sides of abortion activists, so it’s no surprise that they’re jumping on the fear surrounding the Zika virus. For most people, the virus only causes mild symptoms, but in pregnant women, it can cause their babies to be born with microcephaly, a birth defect that causes babies to have developmental disabilities and small heads.

Judge: Pro-life investigator indicted for crimes of intent, but intent didn’t exist

(Texas Right to Life) In two Monday appearances on FoxNews, Judge Andrew Napolitano commented on Harris County D.A. Devon Anderson’s handling of the Planned Parenthood investigation.  The investigation – which bizarrely took issue with the witnesses who uncovered Planned Parenthood’s criminal activity and not Planned Parenthood’s actions – culminated in a grand jury ruling indicting two journalists from the Center for Medical Progress. Napolitano called the outcome a “political hit job,” citing inconsistency in the charges.

Planned Parenthood applauds apparent censorship of Live Action

Planned Parenthood is showing itself to be pro-censorship after United Airlines recently appeared to block access to Live Action News, the publishing arm of the pro-life group, Live Action, on in-flight wifi.

The airline’s policy states it does not “allow customers to access certain websites that may be inappropriate or unsuitable for inflight viewing.” However, the websites for both Planned Parenthood and NARAL were permitted.

Abortion supporters’ tweets show ignorance about indictment of pro-life investigators

It’s a sad day for facts in America when even the communications director of a major pro-abortion organization has no clue about what’s really going on in the news. And to top it off, she and other abortion supporters are calling for GOP candidates to be indicted for committing no crimes at all.

The D&E abortion is hard for many abortionists, but not for Warren Hern

Dr. Warren Hern, an abortionist who has committed thousands of D&E (dilation and evacuation) abortions and also does abortions up until birth, describes how emotionally hard the D&E procedure can be on abortionists, who must see the baby’s remains and, in fact, carefully count them after the abortion to make sure no parts were left behind inside the woman. Any part left can lead to a serious infection. Therefore, carefully examining each part of the dismembered, decapitated, and disemboweled baby is part and parcel of the procedure.
