The 11th undercover Planned Parenthood Video: still striving to extract an intact baby brain

By Dave Andrusko We are now into Video #11 in the ongoing undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood and so-called Tissue Procurement Companies–the ones that are the middlemen between the abortion clinics and the researchers eager to experiment on intact baby body parts.

2 Months: Networks Aired Only 0.13% of Planned Parenthood Videos

By Katie Yoder Instead of watching the news, it’s time for pro-life Americans to be the news – to use social media and word-of-mouth – about Planned Parenthood. Because the networks won’t. Since July 14, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released 16 hours, 11 minutes and 35 seconds of footage exposing Planned Parenthood’s …

“Even for researchers, the sight of an unborn child’s head in a delivery box is too grisly”

By Dave Andrusko Each time you watch an undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress, you ask yourself, “Can it get any worse?” And, unfortunately, with each successive video in which Planned Parenthood officials or those running the companies that harvest and sell baby body parts from Planned Parenthood clinics tell their horrific …

PPFA grinds out another bogus poll to attempt to intimidate

By Dave Andrusko When Planned Parenthood or pro-abortion Democrats (one and the same, actually) need a go-to pollster–someone who invariably delivers the “correct answer”–they often go to Hart Research. So with PPFA reeling from the fallout of six undercover investigative videos, what to do? Have Hart Research conduct a poll supposedly showing that voters in …

There is no Equivalence

By Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. Editor’s note. The following is from the Archbishop of Philadelphia. Here’s a simple exercise in basic reasoning. On a spectrum of bad things to do, theft is bad, assault is worse and murder is worst. There’s a similar texture of ill will connecting all three crimes, but only …

PPFA trots out its Clergy Advocacy Board to fend off criticism for trafficking in baby body parts

By Dave Andrusko Over the years NRL News and NRL News Today have critiqued various inane comments from PPFA’s in-house “Clergy Advocacy Board.” The CAB exists to place a religious gloss on PPFA’s primary mission which is to abort over 330,000 babies each year and, more recently, to fend off a storm of criticism of …

Quote of the day: Planned Parenthood in favor of undercover work done by abortion supporters

By Kelli Editor’s note. This appeared at liveactionnews.org and is reprinted with permission. Planned Parenthood and its media and political allies have tried in vain to make the story about CMP’s tactics.

The first PPFA Video: “I’m pro-choice personally, but I thought it was a little creepy”

By Dave Andrusko I’m been meaning to get to this absolutely fascinating piece in New York Magazine for two weeks and here it is the end of the week.

Anchors Refuse to Say ‘Baby’ in Planned Parenthood Reports

By Katie Yoder What has arms, legs, eyes and a heart? “Fetal tissue,” according to the three broadcast networks. ABC, NBC and CBS journalists have not uttered the word “baby” once in their reports on the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts. Instead, the networks defaulted to “fetal tissue” in their morning …
