Why We Must Defund Planned Parenthood



Of the many issues debated about perennially, few have the potential to save lives like defunding nation’s number one abortion provider–Planned Parenthood. Defunding Planned Parenthood could save hundreds of thousands of lives every year. In 2013 alone (FY2013), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the U.S. affiliate of Planned Parenthood, claimed the lives of 327,653 unborn children. Planned Parenthood stops 37 beating hearts every hour. Planned Parenthood’s abortion business relies heavily on funding from the …

PRI Releases Planned Parenthood Organ-Trafficking Videos in Spanish



Please forward to a Spanish-speaking friend at home or abroad. This summer, the Center for Medical Progress revealed to the world the deep-seated corruption pervasive in Planned Parenthood, one of the world’s largest abortion providers. To date, ten videos have been released showing senior executives of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) at various stages in the process of harvesting and selling the organs of aborted babies. Planned Parenthood, a taxpayer-funded organization that receives …

Planned Parenthood Uses Manual Vacuum Aspirators to Harvest Organs



A second video alleging Planned Parenthood’s gruesome selling of fetal body parts surfaced last week. And once again we find a senior executive of the organization, Dr. Mary Gatter, willing to put women’s lives at risk in order to make more money for the organization and for themselves. As Gatter explains, “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an Ipas [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age …

Legislation Banning Sex Selective Abortion Gains Momentum



The 31 May vote on PreNDA was a Pyrrhic victory—for the pro-abortion movement. You would think that any piece of legislation that wins a 246-168 majority of the votes of the House of Representatives would be on a fast track to become law. Passing pro-life legislation though, whether it be the earlier ban on partial-birth abortion, or the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PreNDA)–a bill to make it unlawful to perform or coerce a sex-selection abortion–is never …

The Weakest Link



Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy has not been a bastion of strict constructivist thinking, nor has he compiled a pro-life or pro-family record on the court. So it comes as a pleasant surprise to find his name among the five justices who voted to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion. But an even bigger surprise is in store for those who actually read the Gonzales v. Carhart decision handed down on April 18. The …

The Weakest Link



30 April 2007     Vol. 9 / No. 15 Dear Colleague, On 18 April 2007, the United States Supreme Court voted 5-4 to uphold the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. This is the first judicial restriction on an abortion procedure since the tragic Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973, and as such is to be celebrated. By itself, it makes just a minor breach in the "right to privacy" seawall invented by the Blackmun court to justify …
