Her successor is everything the abortion industry could have wanted By Dave Andrusko Although they were no doubt unhappy at losing a political operative as skilled such as Cecile Richards, the Abortion Establishment was overwhelmingly pleased with Richards’ 12-year tenure at the head of a killing machine that annihilates 40% of the unborn babies aborted …Continue reading "It’s been a year since news leaked out that PPFA President Cecile Richard had officially resigned."
By Paul Stark Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a new Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life brochure about Planned Parenthood. You can find the full brochure online at mccl.org/ resources. PLANNED PARENTHOOD portrays itself as an indispensable provider of women’s health care. But what do the facts tell us? Year after year, Planned Parenthood makes …Continue reading "PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Abortion. Money. Politics. Scandal."
By Dave Andrusko We’ve previously written (and will again tomorrow) about women leaving states with protective abortion laws to go to Illinois where abortions are easy to come by, there is no requirement that women reflect on their decision, and the industry is essentially unregulated. But here’s a new low, even by Planned Parenthood’s standards. …Continue reading "Planned Parenthood fights requirement of pelvic exam prior to a chemical abortion"
By Dave Andrusko Ryan Bomberger, the founder of the indispensible Radiance Foundation, often (and rightly) warns of the “dangerous consequence when we act without facts.” Activism without a basis in facts can lead the unwary down a treacherous path. We need, Mr. Bomberger writes, “more factivism.” And this is what he does on his terrific …Continue reading "Countering PPFA’s “rhetorical poison with the remedy of truth”"
By Dave Andrusko Okay, granted, we shouldn’t really be surprised by anything Planned Parenthood does in its relentless, tone-deaf crusade to co-opt and therefore corrupt everything that is good. Remember their (ugh!) “Choice on Earth” theme of a number of years back. It was enough to give blasphemy a bad name. As NRLC Education & …Continue reading "PPFA’s tone-deaf crusade to co-opt and corrupt everything that is good"
By Dave Andrusko The last story of the day, this will be brief. Tip of the hat to Grace Carr of the Daily Caller for a story she posted today. I don’t watch “The View” which is typically rabidly pro-abortion and harshly dismissive (to put it mildly) of opinions that differ. So I watched in …Continue reading "New PPFA President already showing her skill at avoiding tough questions"
By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research Late Wednesday afternoon, multiple news reports announced that Baltimore’s City Health Commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen, has been named as the new president of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion “provider.” Wen, 35, will take office in November, replacing Cecile Richards, the heavily political operative …Continue reading "In strategic move, PPFA chooses first physician in 50 years to head the nation’s largest abortion provider"
By Dave Andrusko I made myself a promise that I would not tackle every outlandish line of attack against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Everyone knew they would come hot and heavy. If I had any doubts how desperate the assaults would be, an absurd blow-it-out-of-proportions assault leveled by the Washington Post today convinced …Continue reading "PPFA vows digital attack on Judge Kavanaugh, WaPo publishes absurdly out-of-proportion story"
By Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation The political arm of the nation’s largest abortion operation plans to spend a record-setting amount of money in the campaign leading up to the November election in Pennsylvania. The political action committee of Planned Parenthood in the Keystone State has announced it will invest $1.5 million in …Continue reading "PPFA of Pennsylvania pledges to invest $1.5 million to re-elect pro-abortion governor"
By Dave Andrusko Tip of the hat to Tim Graham over at Newsbusters for his take down of the reliably pro-abortion Snopes.com’s latest in-kind contribution to Planned Parenthood. Writing for Snopes “Factchecker” Dan Evon took on an obviously tongue-in-cheek assertion that maybe three people in the galaxy had even heard about and (at most) one took …Continue reading "Reliably pro-abortion Snopes again recycles PPFA’s “3%” myth"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. We’re re-running this post because just last week the pro-abortion Snopes site uncritically recycled Planned Parenthood’s myth that abortion constitutes just 3% of its services. We’re starting several paragraphs in so as get to the meat of the post quicker and dealing with only one of two issues the Washington …Continue reading "Planned Parenthood’s “3%” assertion deserves “Three Pinocchios” Washington Post Fact Checker says"
By Dave Andrusko Truth be told, before I checked around, I didn’t get what was going on this week when prosecutors from three Indiana counties announced they wouldn’t defend Indiana’s new abortion law, SEA 340, against Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the ACLU of Indiana’s challenge. SEA 340, signed into law by pro-life …Continue reading "In PR stunt, three Democratic county prosecutors refuse to defend new pro-life Indiana law"
