Medical Students for Choice desperate to increase numbers of abortionists

According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, the number of abortion clinics in the United States has declined by nearly 40%, after peaking in 1982. Recent years have seen abortion clinics continue to shut their doors after the passing of pro-life laws around the nation. As clinics continue to close, as abortion rates continue to drop, and as organizations such as Planned Parenthood continue to be exposed, times are looking tough for big business abortion.

But Medical Students for Choice is fighting to continue big business abortion, with the help of private funding including grants from the Rockefeller Family Fund, a non-profit group that, according to their website, seeks to find the leverage points of key societal and political issues and which “seeks to improve the quality of life for working women and their families.” Sadly, it appears that the group views abortion as a way to help achieve this goal.

Planned Parenthood plays race card in PRENDA bill discussion

In a Thursday blog post, Planned Parenthood Action Fund criticized H.R. 4924, known as the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, or PRENDA.  PRENDA would make it illegal to abort based on the baby’s race or sex.

Although PRENDA would outlaw the targeting of female babies and minority babies for abortion, Planned Parenthood has somehow managed to flip the script and call racism on the bill itself. According to their website

Abby Johnson and Cecile Richards to speak at Georgetown on the same day

On April 20, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is scheduled to speak at Georgetown University, at the invitation of a student-led group.  The University, which describes itself as a Catholic institution, has been widely criticized for hosting the leader of America’s largest abortion business.

“Instead of educating students of the Catholic Church’s doctrine on the protection of life, they bring in the president of the nation’s largest abortion provider, who last summer was revealed to have been involved in the harvesting and selling of baby body parts,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.

Berkeley students downplay risks while demanding on-campus abortions

Last month, the undergraduate student senate at UC-Berkeley passed a resolution demanding the student health center provide medication abortions on-site. Students have also launched a petition.

The resolution lacked transparency and was full of one-sided views and pro-abortion talking points. As for the cost of the procedure, students suggested that university administrators take a pay cut in favor of “investing in students’ health and safety needs.”

The graduate student senate has passed a similar resolution, the Daily Californian reported, with the senior editorial board claiming the university “needs” to provide abortions…

Hillary Clinton: We need to be “defending Planned Parenthood”

During CNN’s latest Democrat presidential debate Thursday night, Hillary Clinton used a question about replacing Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court as a springboard to demand that the media give pro-abortion arguments more attention.

“We’ve had eight debates before, this is our ninth,” the former First Lady, New York Senator, and Obama Secretary of State said. “We’ve not had one question about a woman’s right to make her own decisions about reproductive health care, not one question and in the meantime, we have states, governors doing everything they can to restrict women’s rights.”

David Daleiden’s attorneys file motion to quash indictments from Texas grand jury

David Daleiden, leader of The Center for Medical Progress, was indicted in Harris County, Texas, in January for both a misdemeanor and a felony in his role in exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal body parts – but now he’s the one accusing Harris County of illegal behavior.

On Thursday, Daleiden’s attorneys filed two motions to quash the charges against him. He was charged with a second-degree felony (which could send him to prison for up to 20 years), and a misdemeanor on attempting to buy human organs. Attorneys are asking that both charges be dropped due to illicit behavior on the part of the grand jury, as they believe the indictments were not above board.
