Judie Brown Planned Parenthood would like for people and communities to think that its motives are good and that its intentions are noble.

Catholic Bishop: Church Can't Back Komen Because of Abortion

Kaiser Health News    

Bishop Frederick F. Campbell of Columbus, Ohio, is the latest Catholic bishop to instruct churches and schools that he oversees to not engage in fundraising for the Komen for the Cure organization because of its ties to Planned Parenthood. In July, Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair, the Bishop of Toledo, Ohio, said numerous questions Catholic have raised about Komen prompted him and his fellow Ohio bishops to investigate and his conclusion is that Komen has connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and embryonic stem cell research. Bishop Blair said he wanted to direct money in his diocese away from Komen and towards other charities without the same concerns.

Planned Parenthood funding must resume [says judge]

Beaty Jr. issued a preliminary injunction that found merit with Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina's arguments that the ban on funding was unconstitutional on several grounds. At issue is $212,000 that would have gone to the group's clinics in Durham, Chapel Hill and Fayetteville.
Biden: I won't 'second-guess' China's one-child policy

Life Site News     

In remarks before a Chinese audience Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden said he would not "second-guess" China's coercive population control policy, although he said the scheme was not economically sustainable. Biden noted that Chinese officials "share a similar concern" with American leaders in terms of a shaky economic outlook. "You have no safety net.  Your policy has been one which I fully understand - I'm not second-guessing - of one child per family," said Biden. "The result being that you're in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people.  Not sustainable."
