Rep. Diane Black speaks out for National Adoption Month

Being pro-life does not have to mean a mother has to raise her child if she’s not ready to be a parent. There’s no better time to remind us all of that than during National Adoption Month.

Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) is on the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth as well as the Pro-Life Caucus. She released a special message on behalf of National Adoption month, and called on the passage of her bill, the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act of 2015.

Despite opposition, Senate Republicans still plan to defund Planned Parenthood

The Republican party continues to be hugely divided on the issue of if, how, and when to defund Planned Parenthood.

Much of the disagreement within the party involves a bill which would repeal certain aspects of Obamacare, while also defunding Planned Parenthood. A few members of the party oppose the bill due to the defunding aspect, while several oppose it for not going far enough to repeal Obamacare.

But earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made it clear that Republicans in the Senate still intend to pursue the defunding of Planned Parenthood, despite the opposition from within the party, as well as the expected opposition from the Democratic party.

Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood have love-fest on Twitter

It isn’t much of a secret that Hillary Clinton, considered the Democratic front-runner, is a pro-abortion politician who is quite close with Planned Parenthood. While Clinton has a long history supporting abortion, this past week alone shows just how outrageous her thinking is, and how much she’ll defend Planned Parenthood at all costs.

Senate Democrat labels Pregnancy Help Resolution “political football”

A resolution introduced in U.S. Senate that would honor the work of community-supported pro-life pregnancy centers was blocked from receiving unanimous support Tuesday, as Democratic Senator Patty Murray (Washington) denounced it as a “political football.”

Murray, who has received over $50,000 in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Center for Reproductive Rights—including an $11,750 gift from Planned Parenthood in 2004 that totaled more than radically pro-abortion senators Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Florida) combined—plus another $500,000 from EMILY’s List, called the resolution a politically motivated attempt by Republicans to “stand in the way of progress.”

8 congressmen demand major networks to cover Planned Parenthood’s scandal

There has been a shocking level of media silence on the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress which expose Planned Parenthood for trafficking the body parts of aborted babies. While cable networks such as CNN and Fox News have kept their viewers informed, the “big three” – CBS, NBC, and ABC – have all devoted almost no airtime to the scandal.

Now, a group of eight Congressmen have signed a letter and sent it to the presidents of all three networks, demanding that they cover the Planned Parenthood videos.

Pro-abortion politician to Paul Ryan: Don’t investigate Planned Parenthood

As Paul Ryan begins his new duties as Speaker of the House, he is already coming under fire from pro-abortion politicians for his support of the special committee created to investigate Planned Parenthood.

In a strange welcome letter to the new speaker, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY, pictured above) urged Ryan to “immediately dismantle… the Select Investigative Panel on Planned Parenthood,” citing “wasted taxpayer money.” Interestingly, Slaughter seems to have no problem with the millions in taxpayer money wasted annually on Planned Parenthood. If we’re really talking about “waste” here, there are plenty of women’s health centers that could provide more and better services – without the legal problems.

Republican Lisa Murkowski inaccurately defends Planned Parenthood’s “important service”

Planned Parenthood may have a new favorite Republican senator. Or at least Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski is auditioning for the part.

She identifies as pro-choice, has a mixed voting record on abortion, and just recently declared herself a “supporter of Planned Parenthood” and a dutiful water-carrier for their continued federal funding:

I’m a supporter of Planned Parenthood. I believe that the services that are provided for the tens of thousands of Alaskan men and woman, access to not only women’s health care but also access to men’s as well, access to screenings, access to affordable birth control, is an important service and I have supported that.
