By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research Planned Parenthood has long sought to pretend that abortion is just another form of reproductive “health care,” one of many such services that the $1.6 billion non-profit offers. Why, they tell the public, PPFA offers contraceptives, “cancer screenings,” treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. Abortion …Continue reading "Ouster of Leanna Wen Shows Planned Parenthood’s All-Consuming Commitment to Abortion Over “Healthcare”"
Yesterday, the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), announced the ouster of its president and CEO, Leana Wen, M.D., after only eight months.

Unfortunately, ABC’s World News Tonight and …Continue reading "WOMP, WOMP: ABC, CBS Ignore Planned Parenthood’s Embarrassing Shake-Up"
By Dave Andrusko You have to understand the background before you can properly appreciate St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer’s ruling this morning to extend a preliminary injunction he’d previously issued which allows a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis to continue performing abortions up through Friday. Was the judge saying that the state health …Continue reading "Judge kicks Planned Parenthood lawsuit out of court; tells them to take their complaint to state Administrative Hearing Commission"
By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the day, I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about the “highlights” (as the local newspaper put it) of the pro-abortion Democrats who came to Columbia, South Carolina as they attempted to outdo one another in pledging their fealty to Planned Parenthood. Among the quotes …Continue reading "Democrats pledge undying faithfulness at Planned Parenthood Action Fund Forum"
By Dave Andrusko Can’t you imagine Planned Parenthood’s glee as pro-abortion former Vice President Joe Biden confessed to the high heavens that he’d seen the error of his ways and that, of course, he opposed the Hyde Amendment? Not only did it give them a chance to make Biden grovel, it gives them the opportunity …Continue reading "Planned Parenthood expects total subservience from Democrat presidential candidates speaking at its Action Fund Forum"
By Tim Graham The Washington Post issued a Planned Parenthood press release on Thursday, badly disguised as a “news article.” Ariana Eunjung Cha’s dispatch carried this header: Trump administration’s abortion ‘gag rule’ can take effect, court rules Planned Parenthood, which stands to lose tens of millions in funding, and state attorneys general from California, Oregon …Continue reading "What Planned Parenthood Lingo Won’t the WashPost Repeat Like Robots?"
By Dave Andrusko When you are fronting for an organization (Planned Parenthood) whose founding mother was a raging eugenicist, your tweets are always susceptible to responses from those who know the truth about Margaret Sanger. That, for example, Sanger wrote in 1921, governments should “attempt to restrain, either by force or persuasion, the moron and …Continue reading "PPFA President’s Tweet greeted with wave of truth-telling"

PPFA President Wen Earns Four Pinocchios for Claim of Thousands of Abortions a Year Pre-Roe and 5,000 deaths By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research Editor’s note. An uncorrected version of this story first ran yesterday. My apologies. If it seems like only a couple of weeks ago we were talking …Continue reading "Washington Post Fact Checker Flags Planned Parenthood for Inflated Abortion Numbers"
By Dave Andrusko The headlines talk about abortion not being available in Missouri by week’s end, but the truth, as always, is more complicated. It is unquestionably true that the Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis is the state’s lone remaining abortion clinic. After that the situation gets more tangled. The Missouri Department of Health …Continue reading "Planned Parenthood goes to court to keep last abortion clinic in Missouri open"
#ParentsHaveAbortions By Rebecca Downs If you thought it was sick how abortion advocates celebrated Valentine’s Day, wait until you see how they marked Mother’s Day. The day can be used to celebrate many kinds of mothers: birth mothers, adoptive mothers, foster mothers, godmothers, mother-figures. What it should not be used to celebrate is abortion.
