Pro-abortion Democrat fumbles for words to defend Planned Parenthood

Radical pro-abortion Democrats like Hillary Clinton have made it clear that they will stand with Planned Parenthood no matter what. Even after watching videos which cast light on PP’s involvement with illegal fetal body parts sales, pro-abortion Democrats refuse to budge.

But standing with Planned Parenthood may not be as easy as they had hoped.

Marco Rubio fires back at Clinton on “terrorist” comments, calling out her own extremism

hillary-clinton-planned-parenthoodSpeaking to an Ohio audience on Thursday, Hillary Clinton drew parallels between pro-lifers and terrorists:

Now, extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world. But it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States….

In a Thursday interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, presidential candidate Marco Rubio fired back, first responding to Clinton’s comments comparing him (along with fellow contenders Jeb Bush and John Kasich) to terrorists…

Pro-life “terrorists”? Hillary Clinton’s unbelievable smear, and the GOP’s all-too-believable response

GOP White Surrender FlagJust in case you were clinging to hope that some sliver of Hillary Clinton’s soul was capable of being shamed by revelations that her financially-supportive, award-dispensing pals at Planned Parenthood are running a grotesque fetal chop-shop and very likely killing newborns in the process, think again.

On Thursday, Clinton said the following about pro-lifers:

I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception, or anyone who’s ever been protected by an HIV test. Now, extreme views about women?

We expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st-century America. We’re going forward. We’re not going back.

Bobby Jindal defends decision to defund Planned Parenthood after abortion business sues

(The Daily Signal) Planned Parenthood announced it will sue Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for terminating its Medicaid contract with the state.

“Planned Parenthood is flailing,” said Mike Reed, Jindal’s communications director, in a statement to The Daily Signal. “This lawsuit is without merit and the state will aggressively defend our right to cancel the contract.”

The lawsuit is the latest in a series of efforts Planned Parenthood has made to exonerate itself following allegations that it is engaged in the sale of fetal body parts.

There are better alternatives for pregnant mothers

So, I’m going to be honest about something:  dead children really don’t bring a smile to my face. They do for some people, though; Tucker Max spent a whole chapter of his second book joking about them. He called it, “Tucker Max: Baby Killer,” and in it he bragged of having “accumulated enough stories and anecdotes about abortion that they could name a Planned Parenthood clinic after me.”

Planned Parenthood seems to share Max’s sense of humor. Recently, Sarah Terzo highlighted a story from former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson in which she recalled how her boss once joked that Colorado’s Dr. Warren Hern did abortions “so far along they come out crying and looking for their mama.”

Does Ben Carson want to change laws, or just minds?

Many pro-lifers have a soft spot for Dr. Ben Carson. It’s no wonder why: the soft-spoken warmth of his delivery and his status as a non-politician during his fateful National Prayer Breakfast speech combined to solidify an image of sincerity few professional politicians can come close to.

In the weeks and years to follow, Carson grew more and more outspoken against abortion as an act of grave evil against innocent babies, including blistering condemnations of abortion’s disproportionate death toll among black Americans and Planned Parenthood’s origins in the eugenics movement. It also came out that his public support for life actually preceded his 2013 rebirth as a political celebrity.

Ted Cruz leads the charge to defund Planned Parenthood, with op-ed in USA Today

Hours ago, USA Today printed an op-ed by Senator Ted Cruz, one of the top-tier GOP presidential candidates. Cruz is known for speaking the truth and shooting straight with the American people.

The op-ed is titled simply: “Cruz: End Planned Parenthood funding.” An experienced attorney who was personally asked by the U.S. Supreme Court to argue before the Court – a high honor – Cruz asserts that “accounting gimmicks can’t hide the fact that federal support ultimately pays for abortion.”

Why haven’t Walker and Christie launched their own Planned Parenthood investigations yet?

To date, twelve states have launched investigations into their Planned Parenthood affiliates to determine if they are engaged in the kinds of illegal fetal organ harvesting practices exposed by the Center for Medical Progress: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas — a cause that only increases in urgency with each new video, the latest of which suggests they may be murdering babies after birth.

All of the major Republican presidential candidates are pro-life, all have denounced Planned Parenthood over the scandal, and most have demanded that the abortion giant be defunded and nationally investigated.

However, looking over the field, a curious detail seems to have gone unmentioned for too long. Four of the GOP candidates are sitting governors — John Kasich of Ohio, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and Chris Christie of New Jersey. Yet investigations have not been launched in the latter two states. Continue reading

Congress investigates Planned Parenthood, demands answers for selling baby parts

Congress is investigating Planned Parenthood following the release of videos from Center for Medical Progress that show top-level Planned Parenthood employees discussing their fetal parts business.

The House Oversight Committee sent a letter to Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, authored by Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), listing seven requests from Richards.

The letter directly mentions the undercover videos, as well as potential “unlawful transactions involving fetal tissue.”

#WomenBetrayed: Colorado government refuses to investigate Planned Parenthood

Today, on the west steps of the Capitol in Denver, a group of concerned citizens and community leaders called on the government to investigate Planned Parenthood.

The rally was part of the #WomenBetrayed movement, which is exposing how Planned Parenthood – and the abortion industry as a whole – lies to women, harms them physically and emotionally, and kills and sells the bodies of their children.

One of the most horrifying undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress was taped at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Denver. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is one of the most corrupt branches of the abortion giant.

Yet, the Colorado government remains silent. Despite pressure from average citizens and legal experts, the government has so far refused to respond.

Liberal media ignores difference between researching with tissue and killing people for it

If it’s a day ending in Y, it must mean there’s a new Salon article lying about something. Let’s just click on over… sure enough! Here’s Simon Maloy with a particularly disingenuous attack on Ted Cruz for “grotesque demagoguery” over the fetal chop shop Planned Parenthood’s been running.

He opens by suggesting Cruz is a hypocrite because he’s condemned the IRS’s targeting of conservative organizations by declaring, “no politician has the right to use the machinery of the executive branch to target political enemies,” yet his new pro-life ad “promis[ed] that he, as president, would use the machinery of the executive branch to target a political enemy.”

Conflating deliberate persecution based on political views with prosecution for actual violations of multiple federal laws? Yeah, it’s gonna be one of those columns.

Cruz campaign airs TV ad: ‘Ted Cruz will prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood’

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is out with an ad on Iowa TV stations. Breitbart reports:

[Cruz] spokesman Rick Tyler said that this was a $33,000 buy on Fox News Channel in the Des Moines area, and would be supplemented by statewide radio ads.

Regarding Cruz’s vow to “prosecute” Planned Parenthood, “the law about selling body parts is clear,” said Tyler, “It’s a felony, so it needs to be investigated. The videos indicate there is lots of evidence they are selling the body parts of unborn children.”
