Democrats Defeat Senate Effort to De-Fund Planned Parenthood After It Sells Aborted Babies

Aug 4, 2015 by

By Steven Ertelt, Life News: Senate Democrats today defeated an effort to revoke taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business by filibustering the bill and preventing a vote on it. Republicans were unable to secure the 60 voted needed to invoke cloture and stop debate on the bill, allowing an up or down vote. The legislation follows four shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The Senate voted 53-46 on the cloture motion — failing to get the 60 votes needed to stop the Democratic filibuster against the de-funding measure. had the cloture vote been approved and the bill passed, and should the House pass its own bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, President Barack Obama said he would veto the measure. The vote was an improvement over a 2011 vote that saw the vote on the filibuster fail and technically the Senate is 5 votes away from overcoming a Democratic filibuster. Read here...

The Scandal of Episcopal Clergy Promoting Abortion

Aug 3, 2015 by

By Jeff Walton, Anglican Action: The United States Senate is scheduled to vote tonight on a stand-alone bill that would end federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the country. Senate rules, which require 60 votes to end debate, will almost certainly doom the legislation — but the fact that it is on the floor only weeks after videos emerged showing Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of fetal organs is a testament to how national conversation can shift rapidly. This story is unfolding as new videos are released by the California-based Center for Medical Progress and over a dozen states and two U.S. House of Representatives’ committees launch investigations into the practices of Planned Parenthood. Episcopal Church officials have been silent about the controversy, but several prominent Episcopal clergy have outrageously affirmed the abortion giant as “doing God’s Work.” The Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board counts among its 14 members Episcopal priests David A. Ames of Providence, RI, Gawain F. de Leeuw of White Plains, NY and Susan Russell of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, CA, who serves as Vice Chair of the board. Russell’s notoriously liberal activist congregation, which describes itself as a “prayerfully pro-choice church”, even hosted a signup table for parishioners tosupport the pro-abortion clergy board in a letter to California’s U.S. senators this past Sunday.

No Abortion, No Gays in Massive New UN Development Goals

Aug 3, 2015 by

By Stefano Genarini JD, C-Fam: The most anticipated and comprehensive UN agreement involving social policy since the 1990s does not break any new ground on abortion or homosexual issues. Countries reached an agreement hailed as “historic” and “unprecedented” on Sunday evening at UN headquarters. But it did not stray from previous agreements that left abortion to be decided by national legislation, and expectedly does not broach the subject of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) rights. When the moderators – the Ambassadors of Kenya and Ireland – gaveled the agreement, relief and satisfaction were palpable in the packed room. Countries needed an extra 48 hours round-the-clock negotiation without translators and often without air conditioning to reach a deal after the deadline passed on Friday. Kenyan Ambassador Macharia Kamau was showered with praise and will be remembered as the principal architect of the agreement. He led multiple rounds of negotiations over the past three years to secure consensus ahead of September, when it will be adopted in what is anticipated to be the largest gathering of heads of state in history. Although he described himself as an agnostic when it came to contentious social policy, he has given indications that he at least understands the importance of protecting unborn children.

(Frequently updated) After-birth abortion? Planned Parenthood and the art of infanticide

Aug 1, 2015 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: Not only has Planned Parenthood perfected the art of aborting babies in a “less crunchy way” in order that the harvest of body parts may be plentiful, but it transpires that they also routinely carry out something called ‘after-birth abortion’. The term is really quite disquieting, for what is an after-birth abortion if it is not the immediate post-natal termination of life? And if it is the immediate post-natal termination of life, it must mean the purposeful killing of a living, breathing baby. In what sense is after-birth abortion not murder? New undercover footage has been released by the Center for Medical Progress which shows a senior Planned Parenthood employee – Vice President and Medical Director, Dr Savita Ginde – negotiating a deal on foetal body parts, and the spin she puts on the justification of a pricing schedule and the dubious legality of their operation is breathtaking. lt is one thing to sell baby body parts for $30-$100 per specimen “to cover costs”; it is quite another to conspire in a cover-up of a criminal act, and then have your lawyers manipulate the facts to mitigate the public relations liability. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains perform more than 10,000 abortions a year. In this video, Dr Ginde is asked about the supply of intact foetal specimens. Dr Ginde discloses: “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.” If a woman delivers her baby “before we get to see them for a procedure”, the baby must be born alive. It has not been injected with a saline solution and mushed up in utero; nor has it been ‘partially born’ in order to have the back of its neck snipped while the head rests breathless in the birth canal. Dr Ginde specifically refers to delivery “before we get to see them for a procedure”. What lawful procedure may be performed after delivery on a living infant by which its body parts may be harvested whole and intact?

Gender Activists Alarmed: New Report on the “Anti-Gender Mobilizations in Europe” by Left-Wing Think Tank

Jul 31, 2015 by

By Gabriele Kuby, European Dignity Watch: The world-wide operating Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the intellectual activist centre of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) which presently governs Germany in a coalition with the Christian Democratic Party under Chancellor Angela Merkel. As their publications and conferences reflect, the FES pushes for same-sex marriage, reproductive rights, biotechnology, sexual diversity, gender equality, and sexual education. It also publishes reports with the intention of “naming and shaming” individuals, organizations, parties, and networks which work on behalf of life and the family. The FES’s latest publication takes an international approach, describing anti-gender activists and actions in France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia. Titled Gender as Symbolic Glue: The position and role of conservative and far-right parties in the anti-gender mobilizations in Europe, the report was published by something called the Foundation for European Progressive Studies – “with the financial support of the European Parliament” and the Budapest branch of the FES. The authors are alarmed over the growing resistance to ‘gender politics’ seen at the grass-roots level (e.g. La Manif pour tous movement in France and Demo für alle in Germany) and expressed in referendums held in several countries across Europe. In addition, they cite the opposition of political parties at the local and European levels, and the ‘anti-gender’ declarations of Bishop’s Conferences. What is seen as a dangerous development by the sexual left is really a testimony to the success of the pro-life and pro-family movement in Europe. The authors say: Read here...
