SCOTUS Saves Mississippi’s Last Abortion Clinic

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Mississippi’s only abortion clinic is to stay open. Laws enacted in both Mississippi and Wisconsin would have forced abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The Supreme Court also declined to hear appeals regarding these laws, which were each put on hold by lower courts.

Divided Supreme Court rejects family pharmacy's religious claim

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A divided U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday turned away an appeal by a family-owned pharmacy that cited Christian beliefs in objecting to providing emergency contraceptives to women under a Washington state rule, prompting a searing dissent by conservative Justice Samuel Alito.

The justices left in place a July 2015 ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld a state regulation that requires pharmacies to deliver all prescribed drugs, including contraceptives, in a timely manner.

Three conservatives among the eight justices argued that the court should have agreed to hear the appeal by the Stormans family, which owns Ralph's Thriftway grocery story and pharmacy in Olympia.

Alito, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Clarence Thomas, said the court's decision not to hear it is "an ominous sign" for the future of religious liberty claims.

"If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern," Alito added.

The court may be less likely to rule in favor of people making such claims following February's death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, especially if he is replaced by a liberal appointee.

The American Civil Liberties Union praised the court's action.

"When a woman walks into a pharmacy, she should not fear being turned away because of the religious beliefs of the owner or the person behind the counter," said Louise Melling, the group's deputy legal director.

Evolving American social attitudes and changes in the law relating to issues such as gay marriage and birth control coverage in health insurance have spurred numerous court challenges by individuals, businesses and nonprofit employers who say their religious liberty has been violated. The U.S. Constitution's First Amendment protects freedom of religion.

Washington state permits a religiously objecting individual pharmacist to deny medicine, as long as another pharmacist working at the location provides timely delivery. The rules require a pharmacy to deliver all medicine, even if the owner objects.

The Supreme Court in 2014 allowed certain businesses to object on religious grounds to the Obamacare law's requirement that companies provide employees with insurance that pays for women's contraceptives. The court in May sent a similar dispute brought by nonprofit Christian employers back to lower courts without resolving the main legal issue.

The Stormans family is made up of devout Christians who associate "morning after" emergency contraceptives with abortion. Two individual pharmacists who worked elsewhere also joined the lawsuit.

"The dilemma this creates for the Stormans family and others like them is plain: Violate your sincerely held religious beliefs or get out of the pharmacy business," Alito said.

Thirty-eight state and national pharmacy associations had urged the court to take up the case, saying pharmacies generally get to choose what products they stock.

Alito said there is evidence the state's regulation was adopted because of "hostility to pharmacists whose religious beliefs regarding abortion and contraception are out of step with prevailing opinion in the state" and designed "to stamp out religious objectors."

The appeals court said the rules rationally further the state's interest in patient safety. Speed is particularly important considering the time-sensitive nature of emergency contraception, that court said.

"Americans should be free to peacefully live and work consistent with their faith without fear of unjust punishment, and no one should be forced to participate in the taking of human life," said Kristen Waggoner, a lawyer with the Alliance Defending Freedom, the conservative Christian legal group representing the Stormans.

Judge dismisses Ky. lawsuit against Planned Parenthood

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Jefferson Circuit Court judge has tossed out a lawsuit by Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's administration against Planned Parenthood that alleged the reproductive health organization illegally provided abortions at its new clinic in downtown Louisville.

In dismissing the lawsuit filed by Bevin's general counsel, Steve Pitt, Judge Mitch Perry found that Planned Parenthood had, as it had claimed, been following directions of state officials when it began offering abortions in December as part of its effort to obtain a state license.

Lawyer Thomas Clay, who represents Planned Parenthood, provided The Courier-Journal with a copy of the order Friday.

Perry, in his order, said it "defies reason" to believe that Planned Parenthood had willfully violated state law when it was acting at the direction of state officials.

The Real Cost of That Planned Parenthood Investigation
Today in money pits.

7/5/16

It came as no surprise that Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Zygote) of Tennessee has had her name bruited about as a possible running mate for He, Trump. (Also, hello again to my new friend, Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa! I'm so proud.) After all, Blackburn was in charge of the second biggest waste of time and money in the House of Representatives this year behind only Trey Gowdy's masterful pursuit of The Truth—which is Out There—behind Benghazi, Benghazi, BENGHAZI!

It was Blackburn who led the preposterous probe into the meretricious charges that Planned Parenthood was selling pieces of aborted babies in the parking lots of abandoned gas stations all over America. These hearings produced an array of witnesses even wilder and more unhinged than the folks Gowdy summoned to appear before him in his kangaroo suit. Heavily edited "undercover" videos were treated as gospel. Exhibits seemed to appear out of thin air. Even the editorial board of The New York Times pronounced itself appalled.

Wednesday's hearing showed that limiting or ending access to legal abortion services is part of the agenda. One witness said that women who have had abortions "forfeit the moral standing needed" to decide what should happen to the fetal tissue. One panel member, Representative Diane Black, Republican of Tennessee, bizarrely asked, "Have we reached a point in our society where there effectively is an Amazon.com for human parts, including entire babies?"—a comment that has no basis in reality.

(Dear Tennessee: Please stop electing morons. Sincerely, America.)

So now come the folks at Rewire to tell us what we already suspected—that not only are these hearings a big ship of fools, they're also an ongoing money pit.

Congressional documents reveal that panel Republicans requested the money from the Committee on House Administration, which sets aside $500,000 per session of Congress to supplement operating budgets. A congressional aide told Rewire that the request has been approved. The panel last year received $300,000, which followed the House's informal two-thirds/one-third funding split between the majority and minority parties, from the Administration Committee's coffers. All told, the investigation is well on its way to totaling $790,000, using nearly 80 percent of the House's available supplemental funding.

I shudder to think how much money would be wasted in the House if Speaker Paul Ryan weren't such a staggering economic savant.

Federal judge blocks Kansas from cutting Medicaid money to Planned Parenthood

Kansas cannot cut off Medicaid funding for two Planned Parenthood affiliates, a federal judge said Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson in Kansas City, Kansas, issued the temporary ruling in a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri and the organization's St. Louis regional affiliate.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment planned to cut off funding by Thursday for health services offered at Planned Parenthood facilities, such as exams and cancer screenings, for poor patients receiving health coverage through the state's Medicaid program. Medicaid funds do not cover abortions.

Federal courts have blocked attempts by other states to cut off Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood, including Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Louisiana and Utah.

In its defense, Kansas' health department cited a dispute in December over its attempts to inspect the handling of solid waste at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park, Kan., which was later resolved. The department also cited allegations against Planned Parenthood affiliates in Oklahoma and Texas that Planned Parenthood called unfounded.

Supreme Court Says Pharmacists Must Dispense Abortifacients
 
If the Supreme Court were ever going to defend the Free Exercise Clause, this was the case to do it.



The Supreme Court refused to hear a case in which the State of Washington changed its pharmacy referral rules for the sole purpose of forcing a handful of pharmacists to carry the “morning after” pill in violation of their religious and moral (and scientific) belief that life begins at conception.

Pharmacist referral on the basis of conscience is legal in all 49 other states, and supported by the American Pharmacists Association and more than 30 other medical and pharmacy associations. In addition, the trial court record contained voluminous evidence that the state’s specific intent was to target “religiously-motivated conduct.” If the Supreme Court were ever going to defend the Free Exercise Clause, this was the case to do it. Consider the following facts.

It was undisputed that there were no less than 30 pharmacies within a five-mile radius of the pharmacy at issue that did offer these pills, and that there was not one instance of a customer in Washington being denied timely access to these drugs.

The same regulations contain numerous referral provisions for virtually any business or convenience reason, but specifically disallow them for a religious or moral purpose.

The court of appeals ruling directly contradicted Supreme Court precedent, which has consistently held that laws and regulations must be neutrally applied and cannot, in rule or practice, treat those with religious motivations any differently than those who operate on a secular basis.

Rights We Made Up Trump Rights the Law Promises You

With decisions like this, along with recent rulings on abortion and marriage, the Supreme Court has effectively created a hierarchy of rights, valuing judicially created liberties for some over the enumerated rights of others.

Abortion and same-sex marriage have become the court’s most sacred rights (with transgender rights quickly ascending) and are afforded the strongest protections, while express constitutional rights like the free exercise of religion are less important than a “State’s interest in patient safety” despite zero evidence of anyone actually being harmed by a pharmacy referral. The message the court has sent is clear: religious liberty is just not that important anymore.

Appeals court orders Utah to fund Planned Parenthood branch
7/11/16

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A federal appeals court on Tuesday ordered Utah to keep sending money to the state branch of Planned Parenthood, overturning an unusual lower-court ruling that allowed the governor to block the group's funding.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver decided there's a good chance the move was politically motivated and violated the group's constitutional rights. The ruling extends an order that keeps the money flowing while a lawsuit goes back before a judge in Utah.

Republican Gov. Gary Herbert cut off cash last fall for sexually transmitted disease and sex education programs following the release of secretly recorded videos showing out-of-state employees discussing fetal tissue from abortions.

The head of the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah said the move amounted to retribution against an organization Herbert opposes.

CEO Karrie Galloway said Tuesday's ruling is a victory for the clinic's patients. "Our doors are open today and they will be tomorrow_no matter what," she said in a statement.

Two appeals court judges wrote in Tuesday's ruling that Herbert likely used the controversy to take a public swipe at the group because it provides abortions.

A third judge dissented from the ruling and questioned whether Planned Parenthood would ultimately prevail.

Herbert believes contract decisions should be made by the state, and he is disappointed Tuesday's ruling, his spokesman said. He and the attorney general will be considering the state's next steps.

Lawyers for the Utah branch argued it has never participated in fetal donation programs. They also filed emails showing state health officials were concerned about defunding the programs that serve thousands of teenagers and low-income people.

State attorneys have argued that the governor has the right to end contracts and that Planned Parenthood was still under a cloud of suspicion when Herbert ordered state agencies to stop acting as a pass-through for federal money.

Herbert said he was offended by the callousness of the discussion shown on the videos, which sparked uproar among Republican leaders around the country.

Several states have moved to strip Planned Parenthood of contracts and federal money, and the organization has sued in states like Arkansas, Alabama and Louisiana.

While most court decisions have allowed money to keep flowing, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups in Utah decided the governor could block the money because the state has an interest in avoiding the perception of corruption.

While Waddoups acknowledged that the Utah organization has not broken any laws, he said it has associated with other Planned Parenthood entities accused of illegally selling fetal tissue to researchers for profit.

The contracts that the governor blocked are worth $275,000, a small portion of the organization's $8 million budget. It also receives money through federal contracts, fees from clients, insurance and contributions.

Multiple investigations by Congress and several states have cleared Planned Parenthood of illegal acts. A Texas grand jury also cleared the group and instead indicted two of the activists who made the undercover videos.

Indiana court tosses woman’s feticide conviction

Originally published July 22, 2016 at 8:47 am  |  Updated July 22, 2016 at 1:31 pm

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Court of Appeals overturned the feticide conviction of a woman found guilty of killing her premature infant by taking abortion-inducing drugs, saying Friday the state’s law wasn’t intended to be used “to prosecute women for their own abortions.”

The ruling comes in the case of Purvi Patel, who was convicted of neglect and feticide last year. However, the court upheld a lower-level felony neglect of a dependent conviction.

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2015, two years after her self-induced abortion at her family’s home. Women’s advocacy groups have been heavily involved in the case, saying it marks the first time a state feticide law was used against a woman because of an alleged self-induced abortion.


The appeals court ruled that Patel, who is currently in state prison on the neglect and feticide convictions, should be resentenced on the lower-level felony charge, which carries a possible prison term of between six months and three years. It wasn’t immediately clear how quickly that resentencing could happen and whether Patel could soon be released from prison.

Stanford University law professor Larry Marshall, who represented Patel during the appeals court hearing in May, said Friday that he was reviewing the court’s 40-page decision and would discuss it with Patel before deciding the next legal steps.

“At this point, we’re going to digest it before we have any comment,” he said.

The Indiana attorney general’s office said it would confer with local prosecutors before deciding whether to appeal the decision.

Patel, who was 32 at the time, was arrested when she sought treatment at a local hospital for profuse bleeding after delivering a 1½-pound boy in a bathroom and putting his body in a trash bin behind her family’s restaurant. Court records show she bought abortion-inducing drugs from an online pharmacy based in Hong Kong.

She used the drugs because she feared her family would discover she had been impregnated by a married man, according to documents. Patel lived with her parents and grandparents in Granger, a city just northeast of South Bend along the Michigan border.

Attorneys for Indiana argued that Patel was at least 25 weeks into her pregnancy, so her infant was just beyond the threshold of viability and took at least one breath before dying. The attorneys also argued that Indiana’s feticide law could apply to pregnant woman, not just “to third-party actors,” and that Patel hadn’t shown the feticide law constituted an undue burden on the right to an abortion.


The appeals court disagreed, saying the feticide law only had been used since it was enacted in 1979 to prosecute those who attacked pregnant women. The judges also wrote that the wording of state law on illegal abortions shows the Legislature “intended for any criminal liability to be imposed on medical personnel, not women who perform their own abortions.”

Patel endangered the child by not seeking medical care, but prosecutors failed to prove that her failure to do so resulted in the boy’s death, the court said.

Two dozen women’s advocacy groups, as well as Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union, filed friend-of-the-court briefs siding with Patel.

At least 38 states have fetal homicide laws, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The Patel case was the first time a state feticide law was used against a woman specifically because of “an alleged self-induced abortion,” said Jill Adams, executive director of the abortion-rights advocacy group Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice.


Adams said she was glad the appeals court overturned Patel’s feticide conviction, but that it was still worrisome that she faced a felony neglect conviction. Adams called the prosecution a misuse of the criminal justice system.

“No person in Purvi Patel’s position should have to feel threat of arrest or jail for ending their own pregnancy,” she said. “That is not what these laws were put in place to do.”

District Attorney Dismisses All Charges Against Man Behind Planned Parenthood Expose’

The Harris County District Attorney’s office in Texas has dismissed all of the charges against David Daleiden, the pro-life investigator who recorded undercover videos of the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

As previously reported, Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) was indicted in January on a felony charge of “tampering with a governmental record” for creating a fake driver’s license in conducting his undercover investigation, as well as a misdemeanor count related to the purchasing of aborted babies.

Daleiden, 27, had posed as a representative of a fetal tissue procurement company in order to engage in discussions with Planned Parenthood officials as a potential buyer of bodily organs. He recorded the interactions, conducted at various locations across the country, as part of his “human capital” investigative series that was released last July.

The first of nearly a dozen videos was released by CMP featured Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola, who nonchalantly munched on salad and sipped wine as she talked about adjusting the child so as not to crush certain organs due to the demand for the body part.

“I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps,” she explains.

“[Y]ou’re just kind of cognizant where you put your graspers,” Nucatola outlines. “You try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that—-you know. We’ve been very good at getting the heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so ‘I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.’”

The second video showed Mary Gatter, the president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors Council, haggling with the undercover investigators about the compensation for the fetal organs, laughing, “I want a Lamborghini.” Other footage showed an actual aborted baby being dissected in a dish, with an assistant declaring, “Another boy!” and another video showed an abortionist laughing about how harvesting an intact baby head would be “something to strive for.”

Planned Parenthood apologized for the insensitive “tone” of the first video, but denied that it profits from its agreements with scientific organizations. It soon announced that it would stop receiving reimbursement for “expenses” surrounding the provision of body parts of aborted babies. The abortion giant argued that the dead babies were beneficial in research to find cures for diseases.

In April, the California Attorney General’s office, led by Kamala Harris, searched Daleiden’s apartment and seized all of his videos from the undercover investigation. Daleiden posted a statement afterward, remarking that the investigation is lopsided as Harris’ office ignored information surrounding the working relationship between former buyer StemExpress and Planned Parenthood.

StemExpress discontinued its work with the abortion giant after CMP released videos revealing its involvement with the organization.

Last month, a Texas judge dropped the misdemeanor count against Daleiden, and Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson advised that she would not seek to appeal. She, however, said that her office planned to remain “focused on the felony charge.”

On Tuesday, District Judge Brock Thomas dismissed the charge upon Anderson’s request.

“The grand jury took the investigation where the facts led it, however Texas law limits what can be investigated after a grand jury extension order is issued,” she said in a statement. “In light of this and after careful research and review, this office dismissed the indictments.”

Daleiden expressed thankfulness for the development.

“I’m glad the first Amendment rights of all citizen journalists have been vindicated today,” he told reporters. “And I would just note that Planned Parenthood is still under investigation by the United States Congress, as they should be, because they are the real criminals in this matter.”

In a convention first, NARAL president talks about her own abortion


 PHILADELPHIA — Her remarks came in the 5 p.m. hour, not in primetime, but when NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue spoke from the Democratic National Convention stage here on Wednesday, she made convention history.

On Tuesday, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was the first speaker to utter the word abortion from the convention stage this year. The next day, Hogue broke new ground and spoke about having had one.

“I am a fourth-generation Texan,” said Hogue, who before leading the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws had worked with MoveOn.org in Washington, D.C. “Texas women are tough. We approach challenges with clear eyes and full hearts. To succeed in life, all we need are the tools, the trust, and the chance to chart our own path.”

She continued: “I was fortunate enough to have these things when I found out I was pregnant years ago. I wanted a family, but it was the wrong time. I made the decision that was best for me — to have an abortion and get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community. Now, years later, my husband and I are parents to two incredible children.

Again, a Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Backpedals on Abortion
8/8/16

If you look at the Colorado Right to Life website, you’ll see that Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn is labled “pro-life.”

If you’re Colorado Right to Life, you’re opposed to all abortion, even for **** and incest. No exceptions. No abortion. Never. And you’re opposed to some forms of birth control, like some intrauterine devices (IUDs).

The group determined that Glenn is “pro-life” based on his answers to questions about seven “pro-life issues,” revealing his position “through specific language with no weasel-room.”

Colorado Right to Life states:

No candidate who supports abortion for any reason is “pro-life.” Regardless of what they may say, any truly pro-life citizen/candidate believes that government has an obligation to protect all human life from conception forward, and therefore pledge to oppose all abortion (with the understanding that a doctor may take action to save a woman’s life while also trying to save the baby’s life, even if the baby’s survival is doubtful due to other factors) - every innocent human being has an inalienable Right to Life at every age or stage of development.

But as the Durango Herald’s Peter Marcus reports today, Glenn appears to have described his abortion stance differently to different audiences.

Marcus quotes Glenn in an appearance on “Devil’s Advocate,” a television show sponsored by the conservative Independence Institute.

Glenn said: “As a person who has two adult daughters, I put myself in that situation. And I want to make sure that when we’re talking about health care, you want to make sure that women have the ability and access to health care, so that they understand all the different options that are out there. And at some point in time, maybe they might have to make that decision. But that is a personal decision that they have to make between them and... God.”

Marcus’ report included a reaction to the Caldara interview from Colorado Right to Life:

“I’m willing to say on behalf of our organization that his comments were not nearly as strong as we would hope,” said Susan Sutherland, vice president of Colorado Right to Life. “He was just trying to play a little bit of political maneuvering there.”

Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner ran into a similar situation in 2014 when he defeated incumbent Democrat Mark Udall. To defeat Udall, Gardner walked more to the middle on the abortion issue, attempting to distance himself from personhood.

Glenn proudly leaned to the right during the primary, which helped propel the relatively unknown El Paso County commissioner to success in a crowded GOP field.

But Glenn wouldn’t talk to Marcus. And The Denver Post’s John Frank has been trying to talk to Glenn about his abortion stance for weeks, with no luck.

Before Gardner sprt pf backtracked on his abortion stance, there was 2010 Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck, who, after the GOP primary, oops, took back his support for a personhood abortion ban  because, he said at the time, he didn’t understand the proposed amendment.

Like Buck, U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman was cozy with the poor folks at Colorado Right to Life, before he jumped ship and took back his personhood support a couple years ago—though he’s never offered up much detail on why and how his position evolved on the issue.

I woudn’t be feeling very good if I were in the shoes of Colorado Right to Life, but we all agree that it’s better to have journalists expose the buckpedaling than leaving it buried in candidate questionnaires few people bother to read.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/the-abortion-rights-movement-is-bolder-than-its-been-in-years-thats-cecile-richardss-plan/2016/08/16/ea96bf1a-3d34-11e6-a66f-aa6c1883b6b1_story.html
8/16/16
The abortion rights movement is bolder than it’s been in years. That’s Cecile Richards’s plan.

On the morning of one of the most important days in her career, Cecile Richards waited anxiously in her office at Planned Parenthood headquarters in Manhattan, texting furiously with friends across the country.

A few minutes past 10 a.m., a message from her daughter flashed across the screen. A single word: Yay!

“That was when I knew we’d won,” Richards says, recalling the moment when she learned of the decision in the biggest abortion-related case to come before the Supreme Court in more than two decades. In a 5-to-3 vote, the justices had ruled that Texas’s restrictions on abortion clinics placed an “undue burden” on women seeking to end their pregnancies.

Seeing that text, the president of Planned Parenthood ran out of her office and joined her staff, gathered around television sets, clapping and crying, to revel in a moment of joy.

“It was a little bit unreal,” she recalls of the day’s emotions.

The decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt was a significant victory for abortion providers nationwide. And it came at a significant moment.

One hundred years after Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger began educating women about birth control in New York and 43 years after Roe v. Wade, the reproductive rights movement in America is at a pivotal crossroads. Facing hundreds of restrictive laws nationwide, abortion rights advocates are going on the offensive with a new strategy.

Gone is the vaguely conciliatory mantra of the past, the ideal of keeping abortion “safe, legal and rare” once advocated by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Today’s activists are bringing the passionately debated procedure into the light, encouraging women to talk openly about their abortions and giving the movement an unapologetic human face.

And they aren’t stopping there. Heading into a high-stakes presidential election, Planned Parenthood’s political arm and its supporters are rolling up their sleeves to help elect Hillary Clinton — who has done an about-face on the issue with a party platform that is pushing, for the first time , for full Medicaid funding for abortions.

It’s a bold move that positively courts controversy. But controversy has never stopped Cecile Richards.

“There’s this thought that women are just too scattered, we’re too impulsive, we are too hormonal, we can’t make good decisions for ourselves,” Richards says, sitting in a sterile, glass-walled conference room at Planned Parenthood’s headquarters. She’s talking about what she thinks lies at the root of the bitter debate over abortion.

She is, as always, immaculately put together, her tall frame draped in a merlot-colored sheath and matching cardigan, gold earrings twinkling beneath her short, white-blond hair. Her alto voice conveys the subtlest hint of a Texas twang, and more than a hint of sarcasm.

“Therefore we need the state to tell us, we need the state to give us medical information, even if it’s incorrect,” she says. “We need the state to give us an ultrasound because we must not really realize that we’re pregnant; we have to go away for 24 hours and think it over.”

She leans forward slightly and raises her voice: “Can you imagine if these kinds of restrictions were put on any other kind of health care in America?”

In person, the 59-year-old Richards exudes both a warm authenticity and a subtle impenetrability; there’s the sense that she means everything she says, but she isn’t saying everything. Her public persona is almost preternaturally controlled; like the savviest politicians, she’s supremely polished, perpetually on-message and surrounded by a highly protective media operation that carefully controls reporters’ access and circles the wagons when uncomfortable situations arise.

Which, given her job, they frequently do. As the president of the country’s largest abortion provider, Richards is a lightning rod for conflicting passions. Polarizing? The word could have been invented for her. It’s a safe bet that how you view her depends on where you stand on abortion: She’s composed, heroic, a righteous defender of the vulnerable; or she’s cold, unfeeling, a cunning apologist for baby murderers.

She gets standing ovations. She also gets death threats.

One thing, though, is indisputable: her success at creating a powerful political juggernaut — pretty close to “the largest kick-butt political organization” that she said she wanted to establish not long after she took the helm in 2006.

In a lineup of past presidents of Planned Parenthood, which has a separate political action committee, Richards stands out — her background isn’t in women’s health care. It’s in organizing and politics. And she has deployed her skills in those fields to win major battles for abortion rights.

When the Susan G. Komen foundation announced that it would cut funding for breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood clinics in 2012, the organization sparked an outcry so fierce that Komen quickly backtracked. Last year, Planned Parenthood successfully turned back a challenge by an antiabortion group that shot undercover video purporting to show that the organization was illegally selling fetal tissue. Richards herself stared down hostile lawmakers bent on defunding her organization in a congressional hearing called after the videos surfaced.

Since Richards’s ascension, Planned Parenthood has also pointedly transformed its messaging and its public strategy. Two years ago, the organization officially — and shrewdly — shed the abortion-specific “pro-choice” label in favor of broader terms such as “reproductive rights” and “women’s health care.” Most notably, it started highlighting the day-to-day reality of abortion, encouraging women to come forward with their personal stories.

And lots of women are taking the leap. More than 200 shared their abortion experiences in public amicus briefs filed as part of Whole Woman’s Health.

“I have never been in a courtroom where women’s experiences were so prominent and so impossible to ignore,” Richards says.

For the activist extraordinaire, it’s all in a decade’s work. And it wins her major kudos from admirers.

Richards has “really transformed” Planned Parenthood, says Rep. Gwen Moore, a Wisconsin Democrat, and “turned it into the kind of political machine that has been necessary to not only fight back the bad policy positions, but to actually raise money.”

Judge definitively blocks Florida abortion law
8/19/16

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday definitively blocked a Florida abortion law that prevents state funds from going to organizations that provide abortions after the administration of Gov. Rick Scott made the unusual decision to drop further legal action. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle had placed a temporary hold on the law in June just hours before it went into effect. The sweeping law also greatly increased inspection requirements for abortion clinics. Planned Parenthood challenged three parts of the law. But instead of taking the case to trial and offering additional evidence or legal arguments, attorneys for the Scott administration agreed to forgo further legal action. ...

Unborn Babies Found at South Carolina Wastewater Treatment Plant

Two unborn babies were found at a wastewater treatment plant in South Carolina last Monday, prompting an investigation by law enforcement.

According to reports, workers at the Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Plant found the dead babies in the water on Aug. 8. as they were cleaning out the filter screens at the plant. They spotted a small hand, then the rest of the infant’s body—then another baby. Neither child was fully intact.

Police were called to the scene, and were taken to the pump station to be shown the preterm babies.

The babies had been found in the headworks, where the wastewater flows in. Officials state that the infants could have only entered the system by either being flushed down the toilet or placed in a manhole. The bodies were turned over by police to the Charleston County Coroner’s Office for further review.

Coroner Rae Wooten told the Post and Courier that while the gestational age of the babies is not known, they appear to be in the second trimester. It is also unknown as to how long the babies had been in the water.

“We don’t have anywhere to start,” Wooten told the outlet in regard to identifying where the babies had been disposed. “It is probably a very isolated situation.”

The facility serves over 54,000 homes and businesses in Charleston, West Ashley, and James Island.

In January, a baby was also reported to have been found at the Bucklin Point Wastewater Treatment Facility in East Providence, Rhode Island. The medical examiner’s office concluded that the child was a male 19 to 20 weeks in gestation.

Police sought out the mother of the child, but no new information has been released about the matter.

“We’re hoping an appeal to the public may lead us to the mother,” East Providence Police Capt. Richard Frazier told reporters. “We’re hoping to get some tips from the public.”

The plant serves the cities of East Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, Smithfield, Cumberland and Lincoln.

“It’s very sad to see that a life couldn’t continue and become the person that they were supposed to be. Very, very sad,” neighbor Betty DeCrescenzo told WPRI-TV.

Aborted Babies Reportedly Cut Open while Still Alive

 Experiments were reportedly done on aborted babies while they were still alive, according to an article published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

LifeNews.com draws attention to the article and says the experiments were done at Stanford University Hospital by Dr. Robert C. Goodlin.

The purpose of the experiments was to observe the still-beating hearts of the aborted babies.

The babies were reportedly kept in incubators and their chests were cut open and their hearts observed.

In a grisly description of the experiments, the Journal says: “The thorax [chest] was opened and the heart was observed directly. When the heart was beating, the fetus was returned to the chamber and the experiment was resumed.”

One of the babies survived for 11 hours under these brutal conditions.

This kind of experimentation on aborted babies who are still alive is illegal in the U.S., despite these studies.

Generation Z will out-earn and outwork the rest of us

Move over millennials, there’s a new workaholic generation in town.

Generation Z, currently in school and the early years of college, is more willing to work longer hours and weekends than their elders are, according to a recently released report by Monster Worldwide Inc., the job-search firm. The data was gathered in January by research agency TNS, which surveyed members of Generation Z from age 15-20.

Of more than 2,000 people surveyed, 58 percent of Generation Zers said they would come into work on evenings and weekends in exchange for a bigger paycheck, compared with 45 percent of millennials, 40 percent of Generation X, and 33 percent of boomers. That’s not entirely surprising: They’ve got youth on their side and are generally not burdened with child-care responsibilities that make working irregular hours difficult for their generational predecessors.

Among the generations, Zers surveyed were the most motivated by money, although 74 percent of them said work should have a greater purpose than earning a salary, compared to 45 percent of millennials, 40 percent of Generation X, and 33 percent of boomers.

Brands seeking to recruit young blood should consider forgoing the beer fridge and ping pong table in exchange for a good old-fashioned health plan. While Gen Z might be more energetic and money-hungry than the rest, its first job requirements are reminiscent of generations before them. Seventy percent of those surveyed said their top priority is health insurance, followed by a competitive wage, a boss they respect, room for growth, and parental leave.

Trump supports birth control without a prescription
9/15/16

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump says he believes women should be able to obtain birth control without a prescription.

Speaking on an episode of “The Dr. Oz Show” airing Thursday, the Republican nominee suggested that, for many women, obtaining a prescription can be challenging.

“I would say it should not be prescription,” he told the audience, adding that many women “just aren’t in a position to go get a prescription.”

The GOP’s 2016 platform says it opposes the FDA’s “endorsement of over-the-counter sales of powerful contraceptives without a physician’s recommendation.”

The comment comes days after Trump unveiled a plan aimed at making childcare more affordable for women and as he works to boost his poll numbers with women. Polls show women favoring Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, though Trump does better than her with men.

Trump has sometimes stumbled when it comes to reproductive health issues.

During the Republican primary, he was criticized for saying that, if it the abortion were to be outlawed, women should be punished for having them. He later said that providers, not women, should be the ones who face penalties.

While Trump was more liberal in his views on social issues when he was younger, he now opposes abortion rights.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists declared support for nonprescription birth control pills in 2012, but some groups oppose the measure because of the health risks associated with them. Insurance also doesn’t cover over-the-counter drugs, which could make the pills far more expensive.

Dawn Laguens, the Executive Vice President of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, warned that such a move would “put access to birth control out of reach for millions of women by making it more expensive.”

“Women shouldn’t have to choose between paying for birth control or buying groceries for the month,” she added in a statement.

NARAL Pro-Choice also voiced opposition, accusing Trump of fighting policies “that actually help women.”

Spokeswoman Kaylie Hanson Long said in a statement that such a move “could deny women coverage of birth control altogether.”

“Out of one side of his mouth, he makes a claim that he’s helping women, but out of the other side, he’s actively working to dismantle the greatest expansion of contraceptive coverage of our time,” she said.

What Donald Trump Got Wrong About Abortion
10/20/16

Donald Trump took on Hillary Clinton’s position on abortion during the third and final presidential debate Wednesday evening, suggesting that during the ninth month of pregnancy, a full-term fetus can be “ripped” out of its mother’s womb.

Here’s what Trump said:

“I think it’s terrible if you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now you can say that’s OK and Hillary can say that’s OK, but it’s not OK with me. Because based on what she’s saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb on the ninth month on the final day. And that’s not acceptable. … Honestly, nobody has business doing what I just said, doing that as late as one or two or three or four days prior to birth. Nobody has that.”

Trump’s comments were quickly taken to task by medical experts on Twitter, and one Canadian ob-gyn, Jennifer Gunter, M.D.,  was widely retweeted.

    There is no such thing as a ninth month abortion – I'm a doctor who trained in late term abortions #debate2016

    — Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) October 20, 2016


    I am a doctor and at 9 months it's just birth https://t.co/VeEH80jKR1

    — Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) October 20, 2016


    No doctor does abortions one or two or three days before term delivery. Ever. #debate2016

    — Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) October 20, 2016


Gunter was quick to point out that what Trump described during the debate does not reflect the reality of what late-term abortion actually is.

Late-term abortions — or those performed after 20 weeks gestational age — are incredibly rare. They are usually performed when there is a life-threatening fetal anomaly or a severe risk to the health of the mother. “The reality is that abortion later in pregnancy is very rare and often happens under complex circumstances — the kind of situations where a woman and her doctor need every medical option available,” according to Planned Parenthood.

Eighty-nine percent of all abortions occur within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. And only 1.2 percent of all abortions in the United States occur after 21 weeks. Furthermore, 43 states — an overwhelming majority — presently ban abortion after a certain point in the pregnancy that is often tied to fetal viability outside the womb, sometime in the third trimester.

Donald Trump’s Abortion Fanfic
The GOP candidate vowed to overturn Roe v. Wade and drummed up ghastly images of babies ripped from wombs—peddling in the worst kind of anti-abortion myths.


Voters pining for a debate question on reproductive choice finally got what they wanted Wednesday night when Fox News’s Chris Wallace, moderator of the third and final presidential debate of the year, asked both candidates about their views on abortion. Finally, some substantive conversation between two candidates with seriously divergent views on an issue that people on both sides view as a matter of life and death. Finally, some smart talk of women’s health, or of how a pro-life candidate can realistically push an agenda that restricts abortion in a post-Texas v. Whole Women’s Health world.

Just kidding.

Donald Trump spun an abortion stance so removed from the reality that it read less like a serious policy proposal and more like abortion fan fiction.

The big moment came early in the Las Vegas debate, when Wallace pivoted from guns to the Supreme Court’s impact on abortion access. Wallace wanted to know if, as president, Trump would appoint justices who would move to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Trump said that he would, and that abortion should be left up to the states, which is a fringe enough claim without what came next. But Donald was just getting warmed up.

Hillary Clinton noted that late-term abortion should be allowed if it is necessary to protect the life or health of a woman, and that the decision that leads to abortion late in pregnancy is often difficult. Trump responded with a third-hand story looking at itself in a funhouse mirror.

“I think it is terrible,” said the Republican nominee for president. “If you go with what Hillary is saying, you can take baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.”

Well, no. That’s not what abortion is. Most abortions take place during the first trimester. Killing a viable fetus willy-nilly was never something Roe v. Wade protected. But Trump wasn’t done.

“Now, you can say that that is OK and Hillary can say that that is OK, but it’s not OK with me,” Trump continued. “Because based on what she is saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take baby and rip the baby out of the womb. In the ninth month. On the final day. That’s not acceptable.”

It’s also not legal, unless there are extraordinary circumstances.


Trump’s puzzlingly weird lie could have come from a number of places. He may have been achieving a C-grade in parroting a talking point used during the primaries by his former rivals Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio. But both of those candidates’ version of this particular nontruth wasn’t quite so graphic, even the one where Carly Fiorina said that she’d seen a nonexistent video of a baby being born fully alive and then ripped up by Planned Parenthood ghouls. Trump running mate Mike Pence used a less graphic, same easy-to-debunk set of myths during the vice-presidential debate this month.

But what Trump said Wednesday was more colorful than any of the previous iterations.

Planned Parenthood, unsurprisingly, wasn’t impressed. Said PPFA Political Communications Director Erica Sackin, “Donald Trump has been clear that he would ban abortion, and appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. Donald Trump’s hostility to women, their health, and well-being has been clear from the beginning of his campaign—and it makes him unfit to lead this country.”

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck was less formal.

“You have got to be kidding,” Beck tweeted. “Trump doesn’t even know what partial birth abortion even is!  Ahhhhhhhgggggg.”

Ahhhhhhhgggggg indeed.

Yes, GOD have mercy on the house of God!

Baptist Minister Defends Aborting Her Baby: “God Helped Me Make the Best Decision”
10/17/16
http://openyoureyespeoplebreakingnews.com/2016/10/17/baptist-minister-defends-aborting-her-baby-god-helped-me-make-the-best-decision/

Thousands, maybe even millions, of women sit in American churches each week, hurting silently because of a past abortion.

Abortion is tragically common even among American Christians, despite Christian teachings about the sanctity of life. In 2014, 24 percent of women who had abortions identified as Catholic, 17 percent as mainline Protestant and 13 percent as evangelical Protestant, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

For many years, Susan Chorley, a Baptist minister from Boston, Massachusetts, was one of the women who remained silent about her abortion in church. Chorley shared her story with The Daily Beast this week and urged churches to offer compassion, empathy and healing to women who have abortions.

Unfortunately, Chorley also argued that churches should accept women’s decisions to have abortions. She never mentioned how that decision destroys the life of an innocent human being in the womb, or how Christianity teaches that killing an innocent human being is wrong.

The Baptist minister said her decision to have an abortion was “wrenching,” and it left her feeling “sad” with a sense of “loss.” Still, she justified her decision to abort her second child 12 years ago.

She wrote:

    I was serving in a congregation in New England at the time I realized I was pregnant. I was far away from family and friends. I had always imagined I would have a second child and I knew that it would be a struggle on our family financially as well as add to the stress of our marriage, which was starting to fall apart. I didn’t want to bring a baby into the world that would feel it was a burden—and I prayed to God to help me make the best decision I could in a situation that seemed impossible.

Later, she added:

    Faith is so much more than judging right from wrong. Faith is about how we make meaning in our lives, how we understand our God, and how we live our values. Decisions about whether and when to grow one’s family carry the deepest meaning, and religious women make this decision in conversation with God, just as we do every decision.

Chorley is correct that churches need to do a better job of reaching out to women who have had abortions, but she never acknowledges that the root of these women’s pain is the abortion itself. To prevent more pain, churches should not accept abortions. Rather, they should be doing more to help stop abortions by offering pregnant and parenting families love and support.

Abortions are not the answer. They are not good for women or their unborn children. Not only do abortions kill unborn children, they often cause mothers to suffer intense emotional and sometimes physical pain. A number of studies have linked abortion with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, drug abuse, suicidal tendencies and other psychological problems. Abortions also can have profound emotional effects on other members of the family, especially fathers and siblings of the aborted child.

Churches should be places where women and families can find healing and forgiveness when they are suffering because of an abortion. Debby Efurd, director of Post-Abortion Support for Involved Life in Dallas, Texas, explained that churches must reach out with compassion and understanding toward those who are hurting and need forgiveness.

“Understand their need for forgiveness,” Efurd wrote in 2013. “Many believe that because they knew it was wrong and did it anyway, abortion is a sin too big for God to forgive and often are unable to forgive themselves.”

Hegelian

Dialectic.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/trump-victory-inflates-antiabortion-movement/2016/11/09/12fe6494-a6a3-11e6-8042-f4d111c862d1_story.html

Trump victory inflates antiabortion movement

The antiabortion movement reluctantly embraced Donald Trump. Now, activists say they plan to make sure that uneasy partnership pays dividends.

Groups taking some credit for Trump’s presidential upset on Wednesday pledged to hold him to his promise to promote an antiabortion agenda. They announced immediate plans to revive in Congress several bills, including one targeting Planned Parenthood, and to press Trump to appoint a Supreme Court justice who opposes Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision legalizing abortion nationally.

“Today, preborn babies got a reprieve,” Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal, a group that campaigned for Trump in 18 cities in battleground states and in some places flew airplane-toted banners depicting pictures of aborted fetuses, said in a statement.

“Now, we must hold our new president-elect accountable for his promises to defund Planned Parenthood,” as well as pass a ban on abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy and appoint antiabortion judges, he said.

The surge of optimism marks a turnaround from just this summer, when antiabortion groups had assumed a defensive position in the wake of a Supreme Court decision striking down clinic regulations in Texas. The decision led Alabama and Wisconsin to roll back restrictions in those states. Activists also faced the prospect of a victory by Hillary Clinton, who embraced abortion rights like no previous major-party nominee for president.

Now, Republicans are poised to control Congress, occupy the White House and choose and approve quickly the next Supreme Court justice. And while restricting abortion may not be at the top of Trump’s priority list, it is paramount for many of the activists who helped propel him to the White House.

Trump’s record on abortion is murky at best. He previously supported the right to an abortion and left conservatives aghast by repeatedly praising the “good things” done by Planned Parenthood.

But the antiabortion movement rallied around Trump after an about-face on the issue. At one point during the campaign, he went so far as to say women ought to be punished for terminating a pregnancy. He backtracked after critics and some antiabortion groups condemned the remarks.

He tried to reassure skeptical social conservatives about the sincerity of his transformation by choosing as his running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), who has a long record opposing abortion rights.

Then, this fall, Trump sealed the deal by issuing a letter to antiabortion leaders. In addition to pledging to cut off federal funds to Planned Parenthood and support a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, he promised to make permanent the Hyde Amendment. That measure bars federal funds from being used to pay for abortions; right now, it must be renewed annually by Congress.

Abortion rights groups struck a defiant tone Wednesday, calling Trump’s abortion policies extreme even among his supporters.

“We will fight to make sure that Planned Parenthood health center doors stay open, and that people in this country can get access to basic reproductive health care, no matter their Zip code, income, sexual orientation, race, religion, gender, or country of origin,” Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement. “The majority of Americans, including Trump’s own voters, support access to health care at Planned Parenthood and want abortion to stay legal and safe.”

Reversing Roe Easier Said Than Done as Trump Looks to High Court
11/21/16

Donald Trump says his Supreme Court nominees will be willing to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion-rights decision. He hasn’t said how he’ll make sure of that.

Trump’s list of 21 prospective Supreme Court justices includes people with clear anti-abortion credentials and those whose public records show next to nothing on the subject.

What assurances Trump requires may determine who the nominee is and whether abortion opponents will achieve their dream of overturning a ruling that has been at the heart of the nation’s culture wars for more than four decades.

As conservatives have learned over that span, justices selected by Republican presidents don’t always follow the party’s script once they join the court. Republican appointees Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy and David Souter all proved to be supporters of at least the core right of abortion access.

That’s in part because presidents traditionally eschew directly asking prospective nominees how they would vote on particular issues, relying instead on less-concrete indicators such as a contender’s lower-court rulings and experience in like-minded administrations.

Some of Trump’s candidates have stronger anti-abortion credentials than others. Federal appellate judge William Pryor of Alabama once called Roe "the worst abomination in the history of constitutional law." Senator Mike Lee of Utah has said the Constitution can’t plausibly be read to protect abortion rights. Florida Supreme Court Justice Charles Canady is a former U.S. congressman who crafted the federal law barring what critics call “partial-birth” abortions.

Others have little if any public record on the issue. Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen, for example, has been on the bench barely more than a year, meaning she has only a handful of judicial opinions on any subject.

Abortion-rights supporters note that, like everyone on Trump’s list, Larsen has a solid conservative resume, with a stint in President George W. Bush’s Justice Department and a clerkship for Justice Antonin Scalia, the late conservative whose seat the next justice will fill. She was appointed to the Michigan Supreme Court last year by the state’s Republican governor.

And Larsen’s campaign website -- she successfully ran for re-election in November -- uses language long associated with anti-Roe forces. The site says Larsen "knows it’s not her job to legislate from the bench" and "understands our ‘State Constitution’ is not a ‘living document.’"

Another candidate, federal appellate judge Diane Sykes, drew Democratic criticism at the time of her 2004 nomination for comments she made as a trial judge praising two men convicted of blocking access to an abortion clinic. Even so, during her 12 years on the appeals court she hasn’t directly ruled on abortion rights.
Liberals Not Optimistic

Liberal groups say they aren’t optimistic.

"Based on the very preliminary research that we’ve done, all of them are problematic," said Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice.

"We are working under the assumption that they have to be bad on the issue of women’s reproductive rights because that’s what he said he is doing," said Marge Baker, executive vice president of People for the American Way. "It’s hard to believe he’s not going to find someone who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade."

Pryor has emerged as a favorite pick for those who would overturn Roe, and he may get a boost if Trump’s choice for attorney general, fellow Alabaman Jeff Sessions, holds sway over Supreme Court nominations. Pryor’s anti-abortion rhetoric was one reason Democrats waged a two-year battle to block his appeals court nomination by Bush. Pryor was finally confirmed in 2005.

A key outside adviser for Trump on court appointments, Federalist Society Executive Vice President Leonard Leo, suggested Friday that Trump might be envisioning a justice who upholds restrictions on abortion, rather than necessarily voting to overturn Roe.
‘Happen Automatically’

"There are lots of follow-on regulations to abortion involving partial-birth abortion, fetal pain and other issues that the court hasn’t fully resolved," Leo, who met with Trump on Thursday, said on the Bloomberg Law radio show. "When he talks about Roe v. Wade, that’s probably the way he’s thinking about it."

Still, Trump’s rhetoric has gone well beyond mere restrictions. During the third presidential debate with Hillary Clinton in October, he said that overturning Roe v. Wade would "happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court."

In a "60 Minutes" interview that aired Nov. 13, Trump discussed the prospect that, with Roe overturned, some states would be able to ban abortion altogether.

For women who live there, "they’ll have to go to another state," Trump said.

Court Balance

Trump may have more leeway in replacing the anti-abortion Scalia because the nomination for his seat won’t tip the court’s balance. The court in June gave abortion-rights advocates a major victory, voting 5-3 to strike down a Texas law that would have imposed new requirements on clinics and doctors and closed as many as three-quarters of the state’s facilities.

It would take at least two and possibly three Trump nominations to put Roe v. Wade in jeopardy. That’s not out of the question, given that three of the court’s abortion-rights justices are 78 or older. But it’s also no guarantee in light of the history of Republican nominations. O’Connor, Kennedy and Souter were all touted as judicial conservatives -- only to end up jointly writing the 1992 ruling that reaffirmed Roe.

One way or another, many scholars and advocates say they expect the next justice will be a solid vote against abortion rights.

"On balance, it’s a pretty good bet," said Eugene Volokh, a professor at UCLA School of Law. "You can’t always foretell people’s future actions this way, but often you can."

Speaker Paul Ryan: We’ll Pass Another Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood, “Our Position Has Not Changed”

I do not trust Paul Ryan at all on anything

During a press conference yesterday, pro-life speaker Paul Ryan said Congress is committed to passing another bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies. Hearings have exposed how the abortion company likely violated federal laws to sell the body parts.

Earlier this year, Congress approved legislation to defund the nation’s largest abortion company. Pro-abortion President Barack Obama vetoed the bill and the House did not have enough votes to overcome objections from pro-abortion Democrats — who prevented Congress from reaching a two-thirds threshold to override Obama’s veto.

In his comments to reporters, Speaker Ryan said Congress will pass another piece of legislation. This bill to defund Planned Parenthood should arrive at the desk of President-elect Donald Trump, who has already promised to sign such legislation into law.

“We’ve already shown what we believe with respect to funding Planned Parenthood,” Speaker Ryan said. “We put a bill on Obama’s desk in reconciliation. Our position has not changed.”

House Republicans Vote to Double Budget for Investigation of Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Babies

On the same day a Congressional panel found that Planned Parenthood and others broke either federal or state laws when selling the body parts of aborted babies, the House of Representatives voted to double the budget of the committee investigating the abortion business.

Yesterday, the House Select Panel on Infant Lives released a list of nine criminal and regulatory referrals against abortion providers and/or fetal tissue procurement companies made as a result of their investigation into the illegal practice of selling aborted baby remains for profit. That list included the Planned Parenthood abortion company.

Then the House voted on H. Res. 933, which would cover the expenses of the Select Panel’s work through the end of the year. It approved the bill to authorize funding necessary to allow the Select Investigative Panel to complete its inquiry into America’s abortion industry and fetal tissue procurement entities.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican who heads the panel, told LifeNews she was pleased with the vote:

    “Our Panel was tasked with investigating areas that, prior to the revelations of undercover journalists, received too little attention. For most of us, it is nothing short of an outrage that Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics supplement their budgets by selling human fetal tissue from aborted babies. The House charged members of this Panel with investigating fetal tissue trafficking, second- and third-trimester abortion practices, the standard of care for infants who survive abortions, and the role played by our taxpayer dollars in this sector of society. Over the last year, we have held hearings that explored the bioethics surrounding fetal tissue use and that revealed the sobering reality of how some bad actors seek to profit from the sale of fetal tissue in violation of federal law.

    “The work of our Panel is specifically focused on protecting the integrity of research, scientific advancements, and voluntary organ donation in America. Evidence we have uncovered reveals that the unethical and potentially unlawful practices of some bad actors may be putting important research at risk. Considering all that our Panel has identified, despite having barely a year to conduct this investigation, it is now up to us to build on this work, to hold our government accountable, and to stop these affronts to human dignity.”

    SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Lawmakers passed the measure along party lines, 234-181 as Democrats objected to the vote.

“This panel and its investigation are a disgrace to this House of Representatives,” said Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Ill.), the panel’s top Democrat. “Instead of providing more funding for this divisive and dangerous inquisition, Congress should shut down this panel and put an end to its shameful proceedings.”

The panel is now likely to spend nearly $1.6 million in total investigating the sales of aborted baby parts.

The Select Panel was created in October 2015, in response to undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that showed Planned Parenthood officials haggling to achieve the highest price for aborted baby tissue and organs that were to be provided to a middle-man organ procurement business.

“Rep. Marsha Blackburn has done an outstanding job chairing the Select Investigative Panel in the midst of vicious opposition from those involved with the Abortion Cartel,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, who also served as a Founding Board Member for the Center for Medical Progress during its undercover journalistic study of the trafficking of aborted baby remains.

In addition to the nine criminal and regulatory referrals, the Select Investigative Panel has issued 41 subpoenas – not all of which have been met with full compliance. At least two late-term abortionists, LeRoy Carhart and Warren Hern, who conduct abortions through all nine months of pregnancy received subpoenas but have not yet fully complied.

Ohio passes 2nd bill restricting abortions; both await Kasich's signature
12/9/16

 (CNN)Ohio lawmakers for the second time this week have passed a bill that would restrict abortions, the latest of which would ban the procedure after 20 weeks' gestation.

The state's current law generally bans abortions after a fetus has begun its 20th week of gestation, unless a doctor determines that the fetus isn't viable outside the womb. Exceptions are made if the pregnancy puts the woman's health at serious risk.

The latest measure, Senate Bill 127, would eliminate the viability test and simply ban abortions past 20 weeks. The woman's-health exception would still apply.

Gov. John Kasich will now have before him that measure, which passed Thursday, and the "Heartbeat Bill," which passed on Tuesday. The "Heartbeat Bill" aims to ban abortions from the moment the heartbeat of a fetus can be detected -- which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy.

Some Ohio legislators criticized the latest measure.

"It's not about the babies; it's about the attack on women," Democratic Rep. Teresa Fedor said.

Fedor proposed an amendment to SB 127 that would have made an exception for victims of **** and incest. But the amendment failed, and the House passed the bill Thursday with a 64-29 vote.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio said SB 127 would harm Ohio women. The bill would prevent those "who are facing the difficult decision to terminate a wanted pregnancy from receiving the care they need in our state," the group said in a statement published on its website.

The law "would effectively eliminate all options for women without the financial resources to travel for abortion care," the ACLU said.

In a statement, Iris E. Harvey, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, said: "For the second time in a week, the Ohio Legislature has inserted itself into women's private and personal health care decisions."

"These bans are a deliberate attempt to make abortion illegal in the state of Ohio," she said. "If signed into law, these bills would force women to travel long distances and cross state lines to access abortion. For many women, the expense and time these restrictions would force upon them would make access impossible."

Planned Parenthood referred to FBI for criminal charges

Several Planned Parenthood affiliates have been referred by a Senate committee to the Department of Justice for investigation and possible prosecution for their involvement in a baby body parts trade that was exposed in 2015 through a video sting operation.

The videos contained interviews with Planned Parenthood and other abortion industry officials in which they negotiated over the price of the body parts of aborted infants, one famously suggesting higher pay because, “I want a Lamborghini.”

The U.S. House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives also previously recommended a contractor, StemExpress, an organ procurement company, be cited with contempt for refusing congressional requests for information about the scandal.

Now, a letter from Sen. Charles Grassley the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, posted online by Operation Rescue, provides the details.

“In the summer of 2015, the Senate Judiciary Committee began an inquiry into paid fetal tissue transfers involving Planned Parenthood. The committee has since obtained and reviewed more than 20,000 pages of information from the organizations involved, and engaged in detail discussions with the attorneys for those organizations,” Grassley writes.

Texas Moves to Cut Medicaid Funding for Planned Parenthood
December 21, 2016

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas plans to block about $3 million in Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood operations in the state, according to a legal document obtained on Wednesday, a move the reproductive healthcare group said could affect nearly 11,000 low-income people.

Planned Parenthood said it would seek court help to block the funding halt, which would cut cancer screenings, birth control, HIV testing and other programs.

Planned Parenthood gets about $500 million annually in federal funds, largely in reimbursements through Medicaid, which provides health coverage to millions of low-income Americans.

Texas and several other Republican-controlled states have tried to cut the organization's funding after an anti-abortion group released videos last year that it said showed officials from Planned Parenthood negotiating prices for fetal tissues from abortions it performs.

Texas sent a final termination notice to Planned Parenthood in the state on Tuesday to alert it of the funding cut, the document showed, saying the basis of the termination was the videos.

Planned Parenthood has denied wrongdoing, saying the videos were heavily edited and that it does not profit from fetal tissue donation. It has challenged similar defunding efforts in other states, calling them politically motivated.

Republican President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to defund Planned Parenthood, and at least 14 states have tried to pass legislation or taken administration action to prevent the organization from receiving federal Title X funding.

"Texas is a cautionary tale for the rest of the nation," Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement. "With this action, the state is doubling down on reckless policies that have been absolutely devastating for women."

The Texas governor's office was not immediately available for comment. The state investigated Planned Parenthood over the videos. A grand jury in January cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing and indicted the anti-abortion activists who made the videos for tampering with government records. About a year ago, the Texas health department cut funding to a Houston Planned Parenthood affiliate for a nearly three-decade-old HIV prevention program. The contract was federally funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention but managed by the state. (Reporting by Jon Herskovitz; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)

Children don't come cheap: Cost of raising one hits $233,610
1/9/17

Children keep getting more expensive to raise -- fashion is pricier and so are doctor visits and day care, according to the U.S. government.

At least food’s still relatively cheap.

The cost for a middle-income family to raise a child born in 2015 to age 18 is $233,610, a 3 percent increase from the previous year, the Department of Agriculture said Monday. Housing was the largest expense, at 29 percent of the cost. Wealthier families, who live in costlier neighborhoods and are more likely to use day care, spend more than twice as much on their children as poorer households.

The USDA has prepared the report almost every year since 1960. It tracks seven categories of spending, including housing, transportation and clothing, and is used to help courts and government agencies estimate child-support costs. It excludes payments for college, as well as financial contributions from sources other than parents, including government aid.

The cost of child-raising has outpaced inflation because of rising health-care costs and additional money spent on clothing, which tends to fluctuate based on fashion trends. Lower projected energy costs, meanwhile, are giving parents a break on transportation expenses, notably driving.

One good piece of news for parents: This year’s increase is below the historic average annual increase of 4.3 percent.

“Those trips you made to soccer games, driving children around, became cheaper,” Mark Lino, the USDA economist who wrote the report, said in a telephone call with reporters. "Costs for child-care and education have really gone up among upper-income groups."

Per-child expenses go down as families grow larger, and teenagers cost more than younger children, largely because they eat more and have greater transportation needs, Lino said.

The study defines middle-class as having before-tax income of $59,200 to $107,000. A family earning less than that before taxes will probably spend $174,690 in 2015 dollars raising a child to age 18, while parents earning more than $107,499 may pay $372,210, according to the study.

The urban Northeast, where an affluent married couple will spend $397,110 to raise a child, had the highest costs, the USDA said. Child costs are lowest in rural areas, where a two-parent family will spend $146,310.

Child-care and education is the second-biggest expense for middle- and higher-income households, followed by food. Nutrition ranked second for lower-income families, which are more likely to care for children at home, according to the study.

Transit costs ate up a greater share of budgets for children ages 15 to 17, as many teenagers get drivers’ licenses. Child-care costs were greatest until age 6, when attending school reduces the need for daycare.

USDA’s most recent study was in 2014, before the department revised its methodology to incorporate more current data.

Housing has accounted for almost a third of costs to raise a child since the first study done in 1960. The USDA calculation takes into account the need for more living space as families grow, although it excludes potential expenses such as moving to a more expensive neighborhood in search of better schools.

In 1960, housing costs to raise a child were estimated at $25,229 -- equal to $202,020 in 2015 dollars. Food was the second-biggest expense then, at 24 percent, with transportation at 16 percent.

“While housing costs have increased over time, changes in American agriculture have resulted in lower food costs,” said Angie Tagtow, executive director for the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion at the USDA.

Health care accounted for just 4 percent of costs in 1960, less than half the 2015 level. Education and child care were 16 percent of 2015 costs, up from 2 percent in 1960, when most children were cared for at home.
