Planned Parenthood Falsely Uses Mammograms to Defend Tax-Funding
Reeling from a vote in the House of Representatives that would deny any and all taxpayer funding, the Planned Parenthood abortion business is turning to its non-abortion services to defend the need for the government dole.
However, it turns out that, in one case, when it comes to mammograms, Planned Parenthood doesn t actually provide the service. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/02/24/planned-parenthood-falsely-uses-mammograms-to-defend-tax-funding/
Today in 2012: Texas Defunds Planned Parenthood Despite Obama Admin Attacks
The state of Texas is defying attacks form the Obama administration in the form of threats to revoke federal funding if the state cuts of its funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and state lawmakers have directed the Texas Health and Human Services commissioner to sign a rule yesterday that officially bans Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses from participating in the Texas Women s Health Program. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/24/texas-defunds-planned-parenthood-despite-obama-admin-attacks/
If Ultrasound is Rape, Arrest Planned Parenthood Staffers
Having an ultrasound is now considered rape, according to the latest talking points from the largest abortion chain in the nation, Planned Parenthood, over the controversy about the Virginia ultrasound bill.
If this sounds illogical and absurd, that s because it is.
This Week in 2011: Kanye West Sends Controversial Abortion Tweet Attacking Women
Singer Kanye West is no stranger to controversy and more is coming his way thanks to a controversial tweet he sent out on Twitter concerning abortion.
The rapper hinted not so subtly that there are women who intentionally get pregnant so they can extort money from their husband or boyfriend (or one night-stand participant) so to pay for an abortion and keep quiet about it. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/02/24/kanye-west-sends-controversial-abortion-tweet-attacking-women/
Nine Pro-Life Books on Abortion Issues You Should Read
I used to have quite the collection of pro-life books. I ve been into this issue since I was a very young teenager. Now, I ve thinned down my collection and have a few definite favorites. For anyone out there who d like to increase their knowledge or expand their thinking on the issue, here are my reviews and recommendations:
The #1 Book Out There Award goes to Why Pro Life? by Randy Alcorn. This is an incredibly easy-to-read, yet appropriately detailed and informative book. It s thin and small, so anyone can read it. It s even available in an audio-CD format. I ve talked about this book before, and I highly recommend that you grab a copy http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/24/nine-pro-life-books-on-abortion-issues-you-should-read/
Mother: There s Nothing Down About Down Syndrome!
While I was pregnant I would sit on my bed and look at Riley s name printed on the wall. I felt that something was a little off. Nothing was wrong, but something wasn t right. How neat it was that I knew she was special before I even met her
Jennifer peaks her head into the living room where her three daughters are playing house. Sarah and Jaimee giggle as they push their little six month old sister, Riley, around in a carriage that is supposed to be for their baby dolls. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/24/mother-theres-nothing-down-about-down-syndrome/
Planned Parenthood Fraud Totals $100 Million in Tax Dollars
Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has described 2011 as the most difficult year in [Planned Parenthood s] history. Well, welcome to 2012.
The Alliance Defense Fund, in conjunction with the Susan B. Anthony List, released its summary report on publicly available federal and state audits that identify waste, abuse, and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood and state family planning programs and reveal systemic misuse of nearly $100 million taxpayer dollars. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/24/planned-parenthood-fraud-totals-100-million-in-tax-dollars/

Muslims Should Take Pro-Life View Opposing Abortion
Life s fragility should remind us of the greatness of God, and the goodness of God s creation should inspire us to respect life. Adapted from remarks made in the Princeton University Chapel for Respect Life Sunday. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/02/24/muslims-should-take-pro-life-view-opposing-abortion/
De-Funding Planned Parenthood Doesn t Hurt Women s Health
I believe that ending an innocent human life is morally wrong. I also believe it is morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to fund organizations that provide and promote abortions, like Planned Parenthood of America. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/02/24/de-funding-planned-parenthood-doesnt-hurt-womens-health/
Today in 2010: Woman Draws Pro-Life Shock by Live Blogging Abortion on Twitter, YouTube
A woman who calls herself Angie the Atheist is prompting shock from pro-life advocates for live-blogging her drug-induced abortion and putting update on Twitter as she goes through the process. http://www.lifenews.com/2010/02/24/state-4841/
UNFPA May Get Obama Administration Funding, But Overpopulation Still Mythical
President Barack Obama has ended the ban on federal funds imposed by the Bush administration on groups that promote or perform abortions abroad and on the United Nations Population Fund. http://www.lifenews.com/2009/02/24/int-1099/
Tax-Subsidized Abortions on College Campuses Must be Stopped
The debate over Obamacare last spring raised the issue of abortion coverage in health-insurance plans. This is more prevalent than many people realize. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/02/25/tax-subsidized-abortions-on-college-campuses-must-be-stopped/
Steve Jobs Adoption Defied Planned Parenthood s Abortion Agenda
Following the news last week, the nation is in mourning over the loss of one of this country s greatest innovators, a man who has shaped technology, communications and human interaction and networking in a profound and unprecedented way. Apple visionary and co-founder Steve Jobs has left an eternal footprint on mankind that will be forever seen in the way we interact and connect with the world around us. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/10/10/steve-jobs-adoption-defied-planned-parenthoods-abortion-agenda/
