A never before seen video released on Thursday shows a Planned Parenthood official explaining how the organization’s abortionists get away with breaking the federal partial-birth abortion ban. It has now been four days since its release and yet major news outlets have failed to give the incriminating footage the amount of coverage it warrants. In the video, filmed by undercover agents from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), Suzie Prabhakaran, the vice president of Medical Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, unashamedly admits that Planned Parenthood abortionists have found a loophole around the federal partial-birth abortion ban
Things got spirited early during last night’s final presidential debate when moderator Chris Wallace asked both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to discuss their views on abortion, the Supreme Court, and Roe v. Wade. Trump reiterated his campaign promise to appoint pro-life justices and attacked Clinton on her support for partial-birth abortion, while Clinton reaffirmed that she would defend Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood as president. You can watch the full exchange and read the transcript below: WALLACE: Well, let’s pick up on another issue which divides you and the justices that whoever ends up winning this election appoints could have
A super PAC launched this ad at the end of September attacking former Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold for voting in favor of partial-birth abortion eight times: Great news, given Republicans are so seldom willing to put the Democrats’ abortion extremism in front of voters. The latest polling shows a big drop in support for Feingold — he’s lost 5 points since October 6th. Republican Ron Johnson is now within 3 points. Surely many factors are in play, but punching Feingold on late-term abortions clearly didn’t hurt. Maggie Gallagher is a senior fellow at the American Principles Project and can be
As we move to our nation’s date with destiny — to Trump or not to Trump — Ted Cruz is using the life issue to make the case that Donald Trump can’t be trusted to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, a champion for life, marriage, religious liberty — and that pesky Second Amendment: Trump is upset that Cruz called Trump’s sister a “radical pro-abortion extremist” judge and seems unaware that she struck down a partial-birth abortion bill in New Jersey, really not long after he said on national TV that he would not ban partial-birth abortion because he was (then) totally
Republicans have a winning message on the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and all the candidates need to get on board. It’s a two part message. Let the people decide in November, because President Obama’s (or Hillary’s) appointee would radicalize the country. The Senate is exercising its constitutional duty to withhold consent by holding no hearings or votes, so that it can preserve the people’s right to vote on the court’s direction this November. And what they are voting on is a specific set of issues: a court that would impose partial-birth abortion, delete the Second Amendment, and
Last Friday, seven GOP presidential candidates sat down for a “Thanksgiving Dinner” style forum with Frank Luntz in Iowa. The discussions covered a variety of policy issues, but the theme of the evening centered on faith and family. Senator Rick Santorum shared a moving story about a time he believed God was testing the limits of his strength. He recalled feeling compelled to champion the life issue during the fight to override then President Clinton’s veto on the partial-birth abortion ban. On the last day of the debate, he offered an impassioned argument for the sanctity of human life. Sen.
Marco Rubio was interviewed Thursday by Glenn Beck on abortion. Beck raised the point that Hillary Clinton’s call for gun control in the wake of the Oregon shooting ignores the legal slaughter of unborn children across the nation. Rubio agreed, stating that while he believes that people should have a choice in what happens to their body, in the case of abortion policymakers should choose life: GLENN BECK: Hillary Clinton said just the other day, ‘How many more of our innocent children have to be slaughtered before we say enough is enough?’ She of course was talking about the slaughter of
This simply has to be heard to be believed. During yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on Planned Parenthood’s practices, Priscilla Smith, Director of Yale Law School’s Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice, was asked by Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) whether she felt a dilation and extraction abortion procedure, during which an unborn child may have its limbs torn off while still alive, was “a humane way to die.” Smith’s answer was astounding: SMITH: I believe for a fetus—a pre-viable fetus—yes, a “d and e” [dilation and extraction] procedure is a very humane procedure, and it protects the woman and
