Supreme Court won't revive North Carolina abortion law

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal from North Carolina to revive a requirement that abortion providers show and describe an ultrasound to a pregnant woman before she has an abortion.

The justices left in place an appeals court decision that said the 2011 North Carolina law was "ideological in intent" and violated doctors' free-speech rights.

The North Carolina law would have required abortion providers to display and describe the ultrasound even if the woman refused to look and listen — a mandate that the court found particularly troublesome.

North Carolina is among 23 states, mostly in the South and the Midwest, which passed laws dealing with the administration of ultrasounds by abortion providers, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research institute that supports abortion-rights.

Justice Antonin Scalia voted to hear the appeal.

The court took no action in a separate abortion case from Mississippi. The state is appealing a lower court ruling that effectively allowed Mississippi's lone abortion clinic to remain open and blocked a state law that would have required the clinic's doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

A second appeals court ruling involving a Texas law imposing restrictions on abortion providers also is expected to make its way to the Supreme Court soon. In Texas, the appeals court upheld the admitting privileges requirement and other provisions that could force 11 clinics to close by July 1, lawyers for the clinics said in court papers.

The North Carolina case is Walker-McGill v. Stuart, 14-1172.

Supreme Court Takes No Action on Mississippi Abortion Law
6/30/15

The U.S. Supreme Court today took no action on a dispute over a Mississippi abortion law that requires doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.

As a result, the law will remain on hold for several more months — perhaps until the court decides whether to take a similar law from Texas. The Supreme Court Monday blocked enforcement of the Texas law while it's on appeal.

Passed by the state legislature in 2012, the Mississippi law was blocked by lower courts, which found that it would effectively force the state's only licensed abortion clinic to shut down.

The state argued that the law would not unduly burden the right of access to abortion services, because many women in Mississippi could go to nearby clinics in Tennessee, Louisiana, and Alabama. But the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that "Mississippi may not shift its obligation with respect to the established constitutional rights of its citizens to another state."

In a more recent ruling, a different panel of the same appeals court said that requiring women to leave Texas for abortion services is not necessarily unconstitutional. That decision came in the separate dispute over the 2013 Texas abortion law.

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/emergency-ruling-blocks-abortion-law-from-going-in/nmpWr/
6/30/15
UPDATE: Judge blocks abortion law from going into effect Wednesday

A judge this afternoon granted an emergency injunction that blocks Florida’s newest abortion law from going into effect tomorrow as planned.

The new law requires women to wait at least 24-hours after meeting in person with her doctor before the procedure can go forward. The law, which was scheduled to go into effect on Wednesday, will remain blocked while the case proceeds.

In an 11-page ruling, Leon County Circuit Court Judge Charles Francis emphasized that he was not ruling on whether the law violated a woman’s right to privacy but whether the groups that sought the emergency order were entitled to a temporary injunction.

“The court has no evidence in front of it in which to make any factual determination that a 24-hour waiting period with eh accompanying second trip necessitated by the same is not an additional burden on a woman’s right of privacy,” Francis wrote.

The lawsuit, brought by Medical Students for Choice and Bread and Roses Women’s Health Center in Gainesville, was filed by lawyers with the Center for Reproductive Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union was filed the day after Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill into law on June 11. In it, the groups claim that the new law violates a woman’s right to privacy, guaranteed by the U.S. and Florida Constitutions.

“The court has recognized that this law serves only to demean women and the choices they and their families make about their own medical care,” said Renée Paradis, Senior Staff Attorney at the ACLU’s Reproductive Freedom Project. “This decision ensures that the right to privacy guaranteed to women by the Florida Constitution will be protected and allows women to receive the care they need while the courts hear our legal challenge to this unconstitutional law.”

The bill prompted passionate debate during this spring’s regular legislative session, but passed overwhelmingly in the Republican-controlled House and Senate.

It adds to an already-existing law that requires physicians performing abortions to provide information to women to obtain their consent.That existing law includes a requirement that women undergo an ultrasound before an abortion and be shown the images and hear an explanation unless they sign a form refusing.

The new law means pregnant women must go to the clinic twice for an abortion — once to meet with the physician, “physically present in the same room, and at least 24 hours before the procedure” and a second time for the actual procedure.

FWIW - it's all and good that these modern-day evangelicals defend pro-life and anti-sodomy through and through - but at the same time, notice how they almost never quoted the Genesis account - man is created in God's image, and marriage is b/w a man and a woman as clearly stated in the first 2 chapters of Genesis.

Pt being that the reason why modern-day christianity has gotten so bad now, is b/c they allowed the Trojan Horse of many different flavors of evolution to creep in(day age, gap, theistic, progressive, etc) - which all but destroyed the foundations.

It's all and good that they preach the cross of Christ - but ultimately, the Creation/Genesis account is THE backbone of the gospel, period. IOW, if the earth is millions of years old, then sin by one man didn't come into the world, and if sin by one man didn't come into the world, then it wasn't necessary for Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. And for that matter too, Noah's flood would have been local(at best). Ultimately, the whole bible ended up getting discredited b/c of this very first initial lie on the Genesis account.

No thanks to state of VA, abortion clinic shuts doors

A Virginia abortion clinic targeted by health inspectors won't be doing abortions anymore but it was not made to close by the state.

The Amethyst Health Center for Women in Manassas, Virginia, will be hanging a closed-for-good sign as of September 28, although owners have not announced a reason for shutting down.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow the abortuary failed past state inspections.

l“The place was found to be very dirty and unsanitary,” she says. “The clinic workers didn't change their gloves between patients, and that means women could have been exposed to infections.”

A woman could have left after an abortion not realizing she had been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease from a previous patient.

News of the Health Center's closing came on the eve of a health board vote to do away with many regulations on abortion clinics.

The Washington Post reported that the Virginia Board of Health has rolled back "strict" regulations, which would free the clinics from abiding by hospital-level safety codes.

Sullenger alleges the Health Center abortionists did not have a clean record either.

“For example, [one abortionist named] Linwood Turner was sued for wrongful death in 1997,” Sullenger explains. “He apparently reached an agreement with the family of the woman who died. And there was another abortionist called Thomas Gressinger. He was reprimanded in 2013 for allowing unqualified workers to administer drugs to abortion patients.”

He also faced lawsuits by abortion patients, including one woman whose abortion resulted in an emergency hysterectomy.

PRO-ABORTION FEMALE ‘PASTOR’ LAURA YOUNG LEADS PRAYER RALLY TO BLESS ABORTION CLINIC
Geoffrey Grider | October 14, 2015 | 10 Comments

THEY CONCLUDED, “OUR RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS CALL US TO OFFER COMPASSION, NOT JUDGMENT. PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD GIVE CARE AND RESPECT TO THOSE IN NEED, DOING GOD’S WORK. FOR THIS WE ARE GRATEFUL.”

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Honestly, with this story, I don’t even know where to begin. Do we discuss the great “falling away” from Bible truth prophesied in 2 Thessalonians? Do we go to Revelation 3 where it talks about the end times Church of Laodicea that Jesus spues out of His mouth? Perhaps Revelation 18 where a voice from Heaven warns “come of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Or maybe all three?  Any way you slice it, watching female “pastors” preaching that abortion is a “blessing from God” is absolutely a fulfillment of last days Bible prophecy about the condition of the professing Christian church right before the Rapture.

In Ohio, United Methodist Church “pastor”, Reverend Laura Young, says she believes pro-life protesters in front of Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities have “misguided faith.” In fact, she thinks these clinics should be blessed, which is why she went out to an abortion facility called Preterm on October 8th in Cleveland. In 2014, Preterm was involved in the abortion-related death of Lakisha Wilson.

How the Bible feels about female “pastors”: “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:12 (KJV)

Young explained her acceptance of abortion like this: “Christianity, like most faiths, is founded on love. Watching protesters shouting judgment and hate based on what they call religion is horrible. Is that loving God? Is that loving your neighbor as yourself?”

united-methodist-episcopalian-church-pastors-lead-prayer-rally-to-bless-abortion-clinics-church-laodicea-great-falling-away
Welcome to the Church of Laodicea, your last days counterfeit “christian” experience. Click for more…
Think Progress reports that the group hopes their “blessing” will protect Preterm from “preachy protesters, as well as encourage the strength and bravery of those providing and relying on its services.” Young plans to go out to other abortion facilities in the state if their event in Cleveland is successful.

Young also says religious groups are fueling the so-called war on women. She explained, “Women are being attacked at a moral level by the radical Religious Right. They’ve hijacked the political discussion. This event is an opportunity for progressive religious leaders to stop the silence. We need to be in the conversation.”

The abortion reverend heads up a group called the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and they run an “all-options” counseling hotline for women facing crisis pregnancies. She said, “It breaks my heart to know women are sitting in pews across the country feeling shamed, believing that they’re cursed for making this decision. That’s a question I get a lot on the phone, ‘Am I going to hell?’ When God instead is there to support women through it all.”

On their website, the group says their mission is to “ensure reproductive choice through education, advocacy, and counseling. The Coalition seeks to give clear voice to the reproductive issues of people of color, those living in poverty, and other underserved populations.”

As LifeNews previously reported, on July 29, the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board said the undercover videos exposing the organization’s organ harvesting business are simply an attack on women’s health care. Jeffrey Walton from the Institute on Religion and Democracy reports that the board is made up of religious leaders from the United Church of Christ, Episcopal Church and American Baptist Churches as well as clergy from Reformed Jewish and Unitarian Universalist congregations.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD BABY PARTS BUYER STEMEXPRESS WANTS “ANOTHER 50 LIVERS PER WEEK”

In a statement the clergy said, “As faith leaders committed to justice, honesty, and liberty, we are troubled by the decades-long campaign of harassment against Planned Parenthood and those they serve. Our faiths demand care for those marginalized by poverty and other oppressions. Faith leaders have supported Planned Parenthood for nearly 100 years because of our shared goals: every person — regardless of income, race, or religion — deserves access to safe, affordable, high-quality health care.”

They concluded, “Our religious traditions call us to offer compassion, not judgment. People who work for Planned Parenthood give care and respect to those in need, doing God’s work. For this we are grateful.”

Rev. Franklin Graham and Baptist theologian Albert Mohler commented on Planned Parenthood’s lucrative business after the footage was released. Rev. Graham said,“Abortion is a sin and is clearly murder in God’s eyes. The people who perform it have no conscience, so I’m not at all surprised that they would be selling organs, tissue, and body parts from babies. Planned Parenthood should be put out of business. They’ve done enough damage.”

In some ways, Mohler used even stronger language than Rev. Graham to describe Planned Parenthood and said they “stand at the epicenter of the Culture of Death.” He also dismissed the abortion giant’s justifications for their executive’s unbelievable comments.

He said, “They are not going to be able to explain this video away. I have no reason to believe that the video is anything less than totally credible. But, even if Planned Parenthood somehow finds a way to evade justice in terms of criminal activity, the part of the video that Planned Parenthood does not –and cannot — deny reveals their senior medical director enjoying a conversation over a meal in which she describes tearing apart the bodies of unborn human beings in order to get the desired organ: “I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.” source

‘The Antis Found a Way to Close Us:’ Abortionist ‘Desperate’ After None Would Help Dispose of Babies

Recently leaked videos believed to be obtained by the Center for Medical Progress provide audio footage of an abortionist explaining how “desperate” she was to come up with a way to dispose of the aborted babies stockpiled at her facility after having difficulty finding any businesses that wanted to work with her.

“I mean, it was the worst. I dreamed about how to dispose of fetal tissue,” said Renee Chelian, owner of the Northland Family Planning chain in Michigan in the video, which was recorded at the 2014 National Abortion Federation conference. “I mean I was so desperate, the antis found a way to close us.”

Chelian was speaking as part of a panel of fetal disposition. She explained that in Michigan, some facilities were using the garbage disposal to do away with the remains of the aborted babies, and when she lost her contract with the nation’s leading medical waste company Stericycle—which services abortion facilities nationwide—she became frantic regarding how to dispose of the babies and keep their doors open.

While Chelian did not outline why she lost her contract with the company, she stated that when Stericycle parted ways with her, she had five months worth of dead babies stocked in freezers.

“Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. And nobody with me, I have to say,” she said. “There was a point, when Stericycle fired us, that I had 5 months of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in. This was all I thought about.”

Chelian admitted that she thought of having a secret bonfire in the woods.

“I was so consumed with fetal tissue that I was ready to drive to upper Michigan to have a bonfire. And it was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped or how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody would see me,” she explained.

The abortionist said that she went to various hospitals to see if she might be able to work with them, but most officials feared what might happen if the public found out.

“We met them in like, Denny’s restaurants. There’s not even very many of those left, they wanted to make sure nobody would see them with us,” Chelian explained.

She said she was told that the aborted and miscarried babies and other body parts from the hospital were either picked up by Stericycle or burned at the hospital’s incinerator.

“And they were terrified of a public relations nightmare, that hospitals actually had big freezers with … abortions or miscarriages, and that they all go in jars together at some point, and they go to Stericycle, unless the hospital happens to have their own incinerator, which is rarer and rarer,” Chelian outlined. “The guy from Stericycle was quick to point that out to me.”
She stated that she went to a crematorium, but was told that the abortion facility would be responsible for picking up the ashes.

“And I was like, ‘I don’t know. Do they have to?’ And they were like, ‘Well, we can’t just dump them, somebody has to be responsible for them,’” Chelian said, “which also made me really worried I was just gonna have to open some room somewhere where I just had bottles of ashes.”

She stated that she soon turned to the garbage disposal like other facilities, even though she had criticized others for doing so. Chelian also commented on her support for burning aborted babies for energy, but admitted that the idea would not go over well with the public.

“It’s also a potential PR nightmare,” she said. “This country doesn’t want to deal with death and dead bodies, and whether—-or tissue. … [S ]o we pretend like that doesn’t happen.”
“If we end up being the front page of the paper, ‘Fetuses are being used for energy,” Chelian outlined. “I mean, I think it’s a great idea…”

The footage is included among 11 videos currently being reviewed by the U.S. Congress as part of its investigation into Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of aborted children.

There are a variety of ways that abortion facilities dispose of aborted children, including using medical waste companies like Stericycle, which transports containers of “pathological waste” to its incineration plants nationwide.

“Without the help of Stericycle, and companies like it, the abortion industry would collapse,” says the Campaign to Stop Stericycle, which was launched in 2010 to call upon the company to stop helping facilitate the abortion holocaust. “If businesses would refuse to service the abortion industry out of ethical integrity, then the doors of these killing centers would soon close and the murder of millions of innocent children would come to an end.”

New Planned Parenthood video: Doctor wants intact fetal heads for brain harvesting

A new Planned Parenthood video, the 11th in a series of secretly-taped interviews, shows a Texas doctor wishing to conduct an abortion that produces intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.

"I haven't been able to do that yet," said the doctor, Amna Dermish of Planned Parenthood Austin. "This will give me something to strive for."

The video is the latest in the sting produced by the The Center for Medical Progress in the ongoing Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal that has led to the formation of a special investigative committee in Congress because the women's health group receives federal funding.



It could also bring renewed pressure on three GOP Senate holdouts on legislative efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

Republican Sens. Mark Kirk of Illinois, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska havn't committeed to the defunding measure and without their support it is likely to fall short of the needed 51 votes, according to reports.

In the latest video, Dr. Dermish tells the camera that she was trained by the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Dr. Deborah Nucatola.

"My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact," says Dermish, who said she sometimes uses ultrasound guidance to convert a 2nd-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation: "Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I'll switch to breech."

In the transcript provided by the Center, she said, "That's what Deb [Nucatola] was telling us, was it really makes a difference for tissue collection at PPLA."

Asked about harvesting fetal brain, Dermish said, "I haven't been able to do that yet," but "this will give me something to strive for."

New Planned Parenthood Video Shows Doctor Admitting to Partial-Birth Abortions
“I haven’t been able to do that yet — to get the calvarium intact [the skull portion containing the brain] … Well, this will give me something to strive for,” she laughs.


The latest undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress shows Dr. Amna Dermish, the abortion provider for Planned Parenthood in Austin, TX, describing a partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term fetuses.

Dermish was trained by Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, which means she knows how to harvest baby organs “intact.” She calls it something “to strive for.”

Pictures of both doctors with their hands outstretched in describing these second-trimester abortion procedures are chilling, not because they’re graphic, but because both women are grasping with their hands and demonstrating the violent and invasive procedure of pulling children from their mothers’ wombs.

Another doctor, with Whole Women’s Health, tells the undercover investigator, “I’m sure there won’t be a problem with volume.” She reminds him that “80,000 abortions happen in the state.”

Dermish: “We’re scheduling 25 procedures a day, three days, well, ten days a month … we’re scheduling 25, but we’re going to be increasing it to 30. I’m the only provider.”

Dermish assures the potential organ buyer, “My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact.” She uses laminaria sticks to slowly dilate the cervix and prompt labor.

Then, in an uncut sequence, Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Dermish walks the organ buyer through the method she uses for infants older than 18 weeks.

She uses ultrasound guidance to convert a second-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation.

“With a further gestation, I will sometimes do that [deliver breech] if it’s a cephalic [head-first] presentation, just cause it’s easier to get … convert to breech, grab the spine.”

This is a textbook description of partial-birth abortion, which is illegal. The baby is alive and mostly outside of the mother’s body when it is killed.

After this ghoulish walkthrough, Dermish admits to the buyer that she hasn’t gotten an intact head. Yet.

“I haven’t been able to do that yet — to get the calvarium intact [the portion of the skull containing the brain] … Well, this will give me something to strive for,” she laughs.

Planned Parenthood’s Dermish describes the difficulty of “getting around the cal” once the fetus is 20 weeks and presenting head first. “Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I’ll switch to breech.”

Dr. Dermish told the organ buyer that a worker in her clinic, “one of our POC [product of conception] persons is really into organ development.”

“She’ll pull out, like, kidneys, and like, heart, and heart we frequently see at nine weeks and she always looks for it.”

“Just like, for fun?” the buyer asks.

The other doctor interjects. “Well, it’s cute.”

Cute. Tiny hearts torn from human babies.

Dermish continues: “It’s amazing, it’s sort of — I have so much respect for development, it’s just so incredible.”

Would that Dr. Dermish showed respect for the tiny human life that provided the incredible and amazing organs she’s examining.

Abortion clinic owner caught on video: Burning aborted babies for energy is ‘a great idea’ (video)



An undercover video of the National Abortion Federation caught the owner of a chain of abortion facilities saying that burning aborted babies' bodies for energy is "a great idea" and "a really good solution" for society.

The remark came during a panel on "fetal disposition" - disposing of the bodies of aborted babies - at the NAF's 2014 annual convention in San Francisco.

During a Q-and-A session, a Canadian abortionist announced, "Just before I came I had to handle some media" requests dealing "with a big, sort of, explosion of the incineration of fetal [tissue] and stillbirths." Canadian media had learned that aborted babies from Canada were being shipped to Portland, Oregon, where they were being burned for energy.

"It seems like a really good solution," replied Renee Chelian, who owns three abortion facilities in the greater Detroit area.

"It's a potential PR nightmare," Chelian continued. "I mean, nobody wants to know where the kneecaps are going."

She later repeated, "It's a PR nightmare for us. It would be on the front page of the paper: 'Fetuses are being used for energy.'"

"I mean, I think it's a great idea, but --" she said, before the Canadian abortionist resumed talking.

"I don't know about the rest of you, but certainly ours is going to Portland. The facility is a waste energy facility," the female Canadian abortion provider affirmed.

However, she believed that she managed to bury the story by misleading the press.

"I've basically got the reporter spinning in so many details that she probably thinks, 'It's too complicated. Never mind!'"

She, and the room of abortionists, then burst out into laughter.

"We're afraid to tell the truth," Chelian said, a common thread in the NAF conference, where other abortionists confessed they kept quiet "to protect the pro-choice movement."

Their tactics did not suppress the story, which was broken by LifeSiteNews reporter Steve Weatherbe in the B.C. Catholic last April 21, exactly two weeks after the CMP video was recorded.

The British Columbia Health Ministry confirmed to him that "biomedical waste," including "fetal tissue," was shipped to the Portland, Oregon, area. "There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant," the ministry wrote.

The fetal bodies were burned at Covanta's Marion County Energy-from-Waste facility, also called Marion County Resource Recovery Facility, in Brooks, Oregon.

Jill Stueck, Covanta Energy Corporation's vice president of marketing and communications, vehemently denied the story, calling it "not just inaccurate" but "completely false.”

But a former employee, Bud Waterman, said that officials "had to know" the facility was generating power by burning babies' body parts.

The Marion County Board of Commissioners put a stop to the practice in a special session just two days later.

The Portland story came just one month after The Daily Telegraph revealed that more than 15,500 aborted babies had been burned to heat British hospitals. The UK's National Health Service put a stop to that, and then-Health Minister Dr. Dan Poulter called the practice “totally unacceptable.

The NAF video, which was taken by the Center for Medical Progress at NAF's annual conference last April 7, is one of 11 undercover abortion industry videos leaked to an online news site and posted on YouTube by a hacker.

The discussion begins at approximately 16:20 of the video.

http://news.yahoo.com/judge-blocks-alabama-defunding-planned-parenthood-clinics-154537869.html
U.S. judge bars Alabama from defunding Planned Parenthood clinics
10/28/15

(Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday blocked Alabama from defunding Planned Parenthood clinics amid controversy over the release of covertly recorded videos about the reproductive health organization's handling of aborted fetal tissue.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson issued a preliminary injunction after Planned Parenthood challenged the state's move to terminate its contract to provide services under Medicaid, the federal and state healthcare program for the poor.

The judge wrote that Alabama had not provided a reason for terminating its agreement with the Planned Parenthood affiliate serving the region, as required under federal law. Planned Parenthood, which has clinics in Mobile and Birmingham, is an abortion provider.

"This is an absolute victory. The state of Alabama cannot impermissibly target abortion providers for unfair treatment," said Susan Watson, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama, which joined in the lawsuit.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, a Republican named in the suit, said he was considering the state's legal options.

"I am disappointed, and vehemently disagree with the court’s ruling today," he said in a statement.

He was one of several Republican governors who have sought to strip funding from Planned Parenthood clinics following the release this summer of videos secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group, the Center for Medical Progress.

Planned Parenthood has denied the group's claims that the videos show wrongdoing and has challenged similar defunding efforts in other Republican-controlled states, calling them politically motivated.

The organization cheered the Alabama ruling and noted that it has now seen success in three other states: Arkansas, Louisiana and Utah, where it also challenged similar defunding efforts.

"For the fourth time in six weeks, the courts have ruled to protect access to care at Planned Parenthood," said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in a statement.

In Louisiana, a federal judge temporarily blocked the state from cutting Medicaid funding to the group's clinics as the legal fight over the payments continues. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a Republican presidential candidate, has said he would appeal.

In Arkansas, the organization is pursuing a class action complaint on behalf of state Medicaid patients, after a U.S. judge narrowly ordered the state to continue payments to three women who challenged the state's defunding.

The organization also won a temporary judicial order barring Utah Governor Gary Herbert, a Republican, from revoking state contracts with Planned Parenthood.

Judge orders Jindal to restore funding to Planned Parenthood
10/30/15

A federal judge has ordered Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal to restore state payments to Planned Parenthood, making Louisiana the second state blocked from defunding the group.

U.S. District Judge John deGravelles ruled Thursday that Jindal couldn't cancel the state’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood over allegations the group is facing related to its fetal tissue donation program, according to The Associated Press.

Planned Parenthood clinics in Louisiana do not perform abortions and do not accept fetal tissue donations.

DeGravelles, who was appointed by President Obama last year, had previously delivered a temporary ruling in favor of Planned Parenthood. Jindal, who is running for president, has promised to continue fighting in court.

One day earlier, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (R) received a similar ruling from a federal judge who also rejected his argument for canceling the group’s Medicaid contract, which was also based on the fetal tissue donation controversy.

The Obama administration had previously warned states like Alabama and Louisiana that cutting off Medicaid contracts was likely against the law. Planned Parenthood launched lawsuits in those states shortly after.

Long-Term Birth Control Use Soars For American Women
The once little-used contraceptive method is making a big comeback.


Posted: 11/10/2015 04:21 PM EST | Edited: 11/10/2015 08:26 PM EST
After nearly disappearing from the market 30 years ago, the once rarely used long-acting reversible contraceptive is now the fastest-growing birth control method among American women.
 
Between 2011 and 2013, 11.6 percent of women opted for LARC methods like implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs), up from 6 percent between 2006 and 2010, according to a report released Tuesday by the National Center for Health Statistics.
 
While use of the most common methods of contraception like the pill, sterilization or the male condom held steady, LARC methods represent a small but rapidly growing share of the contraceptive choices for women. Experts note that the growth is largely driven by IUDs, while implants make up a small share of the LARC options.
 
The pill is still the most popular contraceptive method, followed closely by female sterilization: More than a quarter of women aged 15 to 44 use the pill (25.9 percent), while another quarter (25.1 percent) go the route of sterilization.


CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION/NATIONAL CENTER FOR HEALTH STATISTICS
Megan Kavanaugh, senior research scientist for the sexual and reproductive health-focused Guttmacher Institute, points to several factors contributing to the rise in LARC popularity: Health care providers get more and better training on the devices, medical groups have voiced growing preference for LARCs and consumer marketing has raised awareness of the option.

"A lot of that is trickling down to the patient side," Kavanaugh said. "Patients, particularly younger patients, are learning about [LARCs] as an option. As more women use these methods, they're likely to share their experience with their friends, so it grows by word of mouth."

The current popularity of LARC methods stands in sharp contrast to the 1980s and 1990s, when use dwindled after the Dalkon Shield scandal of the 1970s. The intrauterine contraceptive device was yanked from the market after an estimated 200,000 women were injured, many became infertile and about 20 died from infections related to the IUD.

Kavanaugh notes that the U.S. is unique in high usage of oral contraceptives and sterilization; LARC use is much higher in other developed countries.

"We think that's in relation to the Dalkon Shield," Kavanaugh said. "It kind of tainted the entire [U.S.] industry."

With safer options on the market, LARC methods are getting the support of groups like the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which earlier this year strengthened its recommendations regarding the use of LARC methods and called them "the most effective and safe forms of non-permanent contraception."

According to the NCHS, contraceptive methods like the pill and injections vary widely across race and education level. Women with a college education overwhelmingly opt for the pill, while injectable contraception is most common among women with the lowest levels of education. While condom use was about equal across racial lines, non-Hispanic black women had the highest rates of using female sterilization as a contraceptive method.

Use of LARC methods increased "almost uniformly" across the total population of users, according to Kavanaugh's recent study for the Guttmacher Institute.

In the coming years, Kavanaugh said she expects LARC use will increase even more following the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, which requires most insurance plans to cover all types of birth control at no cost.

http://news.yahoo.com/supreme-court-decide-major-abortion-case-first-time-192250990.html
U.S. top court to decide major abortion case for first time since 2007
11/13/15

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court took up a major new abortion case on Friday, agreeing to hear a challenge by abortion providers to parts of a restrictive, Republican-backed Texas law that they contend are aimed at shutting clinics that offer the procedure.

The case focuses in part on a provision that has not yet gone into effect requiring clinics to have costly hospital-grade facilities. A separate section of the 2013 law that requires abortion clinic physicians to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles (50 km) is also at issue but has gone into effect in most parts of Texas.

The last time the nine justices of the Supreme Court decided a major abortion-related issue was in 2007 when they ruled 5-4 to uphold a federal law banning a late-term abortion procedure.

The Supreme Court legalized abortion more than four decades ago but abortion remains a contentious issue in the United States and some states have sought to chip away at a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy.

These states have pursued restrictions including bans on certain types of abortion procedures, regulatory standards imposed on clinics and abortion doctors, waiting periods, ultrasound requirements and others.

The court will hear oral arguments in the case early next year, with a ruling due by the end of June.

Backers of the Texas law asserted that the provisions being challenged before the Supreme Court were necessary to protect the health of women.

The abortion providers contended they were a smokescreen for trying to close down clinics to make abortions more difficult to obtain. They said that before the law was passed there were 42 clinics in the state that provided abortions. After the first part of the law went into effect, more than half of those clinics closed, leaving 19 currently open.

If the court rules for Texas, nine of the remaining 19 facilities would be forced to close, the abortion providers said. Texas is a state of 27 million people.

The Supreme Court has been at the center of the fight over abortion ever since its 1973 landmark decision in the Roe v. Wade case legalizing abortion nationwide. The court in that case held that a woman's constitutional right to privacy protects her decision to end a pregnancy, and only a compelling state interest can justify regulating abortion.

The core legal question in the matter coming before the court this term is whether the Texas law places an "undue burden" on the woman's right to have an abortion, a standard the high court adopted in a 1992 ruling that upheld Roe v. Wade.

The abortion providers have contested the Texas law since it was passed in 2013 by the Republican-controlled legislature and signed by Republican Governor Rick Perry. The measure also includes a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The Texas case is Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 16-274.

U.S. top court rejects anti-abortion group's Planned Parenthood case
11/16/15

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an anti-abortion group's bid to force the federal government to reveal more information about a $1 million grant it made in 2011 to women's health provider Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire.

The nine justices rejected an appeal filed by New Hampshire Right to Life, a group that sued the federal government under freedom of information law to find out about the arrangement.

The Supreme Court's action leaves in place a February ruling by the Boston-based 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in favor of the government.

The government already has revealed some details about the grant, but New Hampshire Right to Life sought more, including a Planned Parenthood internal document that explains how the group operates its clinics.

Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions as well as health services for women, has been under fire for months by Republican lawmakers and anti-abortion activists over a series of videos produced by an anti-abortion group that purport to show that it improperly sells fetal tissue to researchers for profit.

Planned Parenthood gets about $500 million annually in federal funds, largely in reimbursements through the Medicaid health insurance program.

Two of the court's conservative justices, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, said they would have heard the case.

Thomas said in a written statement joined by Scalia that the appeals court decision "perpetuates an unsupported interpretation" of the federal Freedom of Information Act.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services gave the family planning grant directly to Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Normally, federal funds are dispersed by the state, but officials in New Hampshire voted not to give any money to Planned Parenthood. The federal government then decided to provide the grant directly to Planned Parenthood.

New Hampshire Right to Life contends Planned Parenthood may have violated federal law by using the money to subsidize abortions. It is illegal for federal funds to be used for abortion services.

The high court's decision not to hear the dispute came three days after the justices announced they would decide their first major abortion case since 2007. The court on Friday agreed to hear a challenge by abortion providers to parts of a restrictive, Republican-backed Texas law they contend are aimed at shutting abortion clinics.

The case the court rejected on Monday is New Hampshire Right to Life v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 14-1272.

Ohio House Approves Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood

The Ohio House of Representatives has voted to advance a bill that defunds the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, reallocating over $1.3 million in funding to other health-related groups in the state that do not perform abortions.

House Bill 294 was passed along party lines 62-30. The legislation was introduced by Representatives Bill Patmon and Margaret Conditt, and follows a Senate version that passed 23-10 last month.

“The department of health shall ensure that all funds it receives through the Violence Against Women Act to distribute as grants for the purpose of education and prevention of violence against women are not used to do any of the following: (1) Perform nontherapeutic abortions; (2) Promote nontherapeutic abortions; (3) Contract with any entity that performs or promotes nontherapeutic abortions; (4) Become or continue to be an affiliate of any entity that performs or promotes nontherapeutic abortions,” it reads in part.

The bill also disallows funding for the HIV/AIDS initiative, the infant mortality reduction program, sexual education program and other initiatives to go to groups performing or promoting abortions.

“This is about ideological opposition to a woman’s right to choose—let’s call it what it is—by legislators who think they have the right to make a woman’s personal health care decisions,” Rep. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) asserted during deliberations.

But Rep. Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) defended the legislation.

“I just get sick and tired of hearing a bill like this is a war on women. As a woman and a mother of three daughters, I can stand here and confidently say that the real war on women is abortion,” she said.

Others also supported the measure.

“There is no reason that the State of Ohio should be in business with the so-called ‘Walmart’ of abortion,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life. “When an organization like Planned Parenthood ranks as one of the world’s 50 most lucrative non-profits, the State should seriously reconsider how it is allocating taxpayer dollars. We are grateful for the prudence and compassion of our elected officials in continually leading our state towards a more life-affirming culture.”

The bill will now be sent to the Ohio Senate, and if passed, will then move to the desk of Gov. John Kasich.

According to a state report, there were 21,186 abortions in the state last year, and there were 147 abortions per 1,000 live births. The majority of women obtaining abortions are unwed mothers.

“Approximately 74 percent of women who obtained an abortion [in 2014] were never married, divorced or widowed,” the report reads.

San Francisco judge rules couple's frozen embryos be discarded
11/18/15

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A San Francisco judge ruled on Wednesday that a woman was not entitled to frozen embryos conceived with her now ex-husband in a widely-watched case over reproductive rights in the nation's most populous state.

Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo made the ruling in the case between Mimi Lee and Stephen Findley, upholding a consent agreement the couple had signed which required the embryos be "thawed and discarded" in the event of a divorce.

"It is a disturbing consequence of modern biological technology that the fate of the nascent human life, which the Embryos in this case represent, must be determined in a court by reference to cold legal principles," Massullo said in her 83-page decision.

She added however that "there must be rules to govern the disposition" of frozen embryos.

Attorneys for Lee said in a statement that she was "disappointed with the Court's tentative ruling and is evaluating her legal options."

Lawyers for Findley could not be immediately reached for comment on Wednesday.

Just days before the pair got married in August 2010, Lee was diagnosed with breast cancer, according to court records. The couple decided to create several embryos and have them cryogenically frozen to ensure they could still have children.

The five embryos were created at the University of California, San Francisco's (UCSF) Center for Reproductive Health and the pair signed a consent form that said they would be discarded in the event of a divorce, the ruling said.

Findley filed for divorce from Lee in December 2013 and the issue of what to do with the embryos became a flashpoint.

Lee argued during a five-day trial this summer that the embryos should be granted to her, saying she was now infertile and would have no other opportunities to bear children.

She said the consent form was invalid, and urged the court to consider her constitutional rights to procreate, according to the ruling.

Findley, meanwhile, said he had constitutional rights not to procreate with Lee, and said that she would attempt to use the resulting offspring to take advantage of him financially.

The ruling, which directs UCSF to discard the embryos, would be stayed pending any appeals.

Federal court rules Wisconsin abortion law unconstitutional
11/23/15

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin law that requires abortion providers to get admitting privileges at nearby hospitals is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court panel ruled Monday.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel's 2-1 decision doesn't put the question to rest. Nearly a dozen states have imposed similar requirements on abortion providers, and the U.S. Supreme Court agreed last week to hear a challenge to Texas' law in a case that could settle the issue nationally.

The Wisconsin case centers on a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood and Affiliated Medical Services. The groups argue that the 2013 law amounts to an unconstitutional restriction on abortion.

The law's supporters counter the Republican-backed statutes would ensure continuity of care if a woman developed complications from an abortion and needed to be hospitalized. But the lawsuit said the statute would force AMS's clinic in Milwaukee to close because its doctors couldn't get admitting privileges. That in turn would lead to longer waits at Planned Parenthood clinics. Therefore, the lawsuit maintained, the law amounts to an illegal restriction on abortions.

U.S. District Judge William Conley sided with the abortion providers in March, saying the law served no legitimate health interest. The Wisconsin Department of Justice later appealed to the 7th Circuit.

Writing for the 7th Circuit majority, Judge Richard Posner called the contention that the law would protect women's health "nonexistent." He said the law would put more women in danger by increasing the waiting times for abortions, which could push some procedures into the second trimester.

"What makes no sense is to abridge the constitutional right to abortion on the basis of spurious contentions regarding women's health — and the abridgement challenged in this case would actually endanger women's health," he wrote.

Judge David Manion was the lone dissenter, saying the law protects women's health and doesn't amount to an undue constitutional burden.

"The solution to the plaintiffs' problems is that they find more qualified doctors, not that the state relax — or that we strike down as unconstitutional — precautions taken by the state to protect the health and safety of pregnant women who have chosen to end their pregnancies," Manion wrote.

Anne E. Schwartz, a spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which defended Wisconsin's law, said the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately decide the issue.

Oklahoma Governor Calls for End to Planned Parenthood Medicaid Funding

The governor of Oklahoma is calling for the state’s Health Care Authority Board to cancel its contract with the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Gov. Mary Fallin sent a letter on Wednesday to Director Nico Gomez to outline her reasons for pulling the funding.

“Research strongly suggests that Planned Parenthood and its Oklahoma and national affiliates regularly, whether intentionally or negligently, engage in a pattern of practices resulting in the overbilling of state Medicaid programs,” she wrote. “Numerous False Claims Act whistleblower lawsuits around the country have also alleged potential fraud by Planned Parenthood affiliates.”

Fallin noted that the October Program and Integrity Review surrounding Planned Parenthood affiliates in Oklahoma shows that “more than one in every seven bills submitted for payment … are inaccurately coded or insufficiently documented.”

“These errors result in overbilling to the Oklahoma taxpayer,” she said.

The governor therefore called for the termination of the state’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood and any other organization found to be overbilling for services.

“Indeed whether willful or simply negligent, the consistent submission of improper billings should disqualify these Planned Parenthood providers from participation in the Oklahoma Medicaid program,” Fallin stated.

The religious liberties organization Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) says that it agrees with Fallin.

“Governor Fallin is right to recognize that taxpayer money should go to fund local community health centers, not to subsidize a scandal-ridden, billion-dollar abortion business,” ADF Legal Counsel Kellie Fiedorek said in a press release on Thursday.

“Oklahomans shouldn’t be forced to give their money to Planned Parenthood, which has a long track record of abusive and potentially fraudulent billing practices, not to mention that it has also been caught in authenticated undercover videos trafficking aborted babies’ body parts and has repeatedly failed to report the sexual abuse of girls,” she continued. “That tax money should be redirected to trusted health care providers.”

As previously reported, the state of Texas recently terminated its Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast for similar reasons.

“[T]here is reliable information indicating a pattern of illegal billing practices by Planned Parenthood affiliates, including you, across the state,” the Texas Health and Human Services Commission wrote in a letter to the organization. “Our prima facie case of fraud is supported by related cases involving fraudulent practices identified by whistleblowers from inside the Texas Planned Parenthood network.”

It further noted that Planned Parenthood locations violated safety protocols surrounding the spread of infectious diseases.

“Specifically, you allowed individuals posing as commercial buyers of fetal body parts to handle bloody fetal tissue while wearing only gloves,” the Commission outlines, referring to undercover footage released by the Center for Medical Progress this summer.

Fallin did not mention the expose’ videos in her letter last week.

RIGHT IN TIME FOR CHICAGO RIOTS, ANOTHER ‘SPONTANEOUS’ MASS SHOOTING TAKES PLACE
President Obama has been briefed about the shooting and Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton wrote a tweet supportive of Planned Parenthood, saying "Today and every day, we #StandWithPP."

11/27/15

AT LEAST THREE DEAD, INCLUDING COP, AFTER MASS SHOOTING GUNMAN OPENS FIRE AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN COLORADO SPRINGS; FIVE POLICE OFFICERS SHOT, 9 PEOPLE STILL HOSPITALIZED

EDITOR’S NOTE: IT HAS BECOME AS PREDICTABLE AS THE RISING OF THE SUN OR THE WAVES THAT LAP AGAINST THE SANDY SHORELINE. WHENEVER THERE IS A RACIALLY-MOTIVATED INCIDENT IN THE COUNTRY LIKE FERGUSON, BALTIMORE AND NOW IN CHICAGO, A “SPONTANEOUS” MASS SHOOTER COMES UP OUT OF NOWHERE AND KILLS PEOPLE. THIS TIME THEY RIGGED IT TO COVER BOTH PRO-ABORTION AND ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT ISSUES. TOMORROW IT WILL ‘BE REVEALED’ THAT THE SHOOTER WAS ON DOCTOR PRESCRIBED ANTIDEPRESSANTS. SHOCKER.

Three people, including a police officer, were killed and a gunman is in custody after he opened fire and shot at least five cops and several other civilians at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs,  authorities say.

The murdered police officer was identified as 44-year-old Garrett Swasey, a six-year veteran of the force at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, the college said.

There is a “huge crime scene that has to be processed,” the city’s mayor, John Suthers, told reporters. The Friday incident began around noon and didn’t end with the suspect in cuffs into approximately 5 p.m. local time.

The shackled suspect was a white man who wore white T-shirt, a graying beard and glasses, pictures of the arrest show.

Our hearts go out to the people and families affected by this shooting, but do not believe for a second that the shooter just ‘spontaneously’ thought to do this out of the blue. False flag events like this are a hallmark of the the Obama administration so eager to dissolve the Second Amendment and promote abortions.

On CNN, a reporter played the "But if it is" game on whether or not the shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs was the result of the shooter targeting the clinic over their abortion practices, calling it the "latest" such incident.

"If this was a targeting of Planned Parenthood it would be the latest in a string of attacks on abortion providing facilities or on doctors who work with them."

If it was, you see. But this is a very liberal (pun intended) use of the words "latest" and 'string", which imply an ongoing series of attacks. That impression is belied by the information he actually provides to back up his claim.

The most recent fatal attack was six and a half years ago, Dr. George Tiller, shot and killed inside his church in Wichita, Kanasas, on May 31, 2009.

If you think that is a reach on the implication of an ongoing pattern of attacks, his next one is even moreso.

Also in October of 1998 Dr. Barnett Slepian who worked at an abortion providing clinic in Buffalo, New York, he was shot through the window of his kitchen with a high-powered rifle.

There have also been bombings of abortion clinics in the United States. In January 1998 ....

Well, you get the picture. 18 years ago next month. The number of fatalities in attacks on abortionists & abortion clinics between January of 2000 and October 2015: One. As of the time of this article, that number has not increased.

This is not what you call a spate or "string" of attacks, of which today's is the "latest."

It is refreshing, though, to see the liberal media acknowledge at least the premise of related incidents. There is a long, long, long, long list of terror attacks from those shouting "Allahu Akbar" and citing the Koran as their motivation. Maybe we can finally get the media to recognize that those events are part of a pattern. They are certainly more abundant, frequent, and recent than this so-called string CNN reported on with a big "if" in front of it.

The shooting at Planned Parenthood put GOP 2016 hopefuls in a ‘politically uncomfortable’ position

The motive for a shooting that took place outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Friday still isn’t clear, but all three of the top Democratic presidential candidates quickly rushed to express their support for the organization.

Meanwhile, the leading Republicans, all of whom have spoken out against Planned Parenthood, have largely remained silent about the shooting.

Operatives from both parties suggested to Yahoo News that the incident puts the GOP field in a tough spot because of its opposition to Planned Parenthood. The organization is the country’s largest provider of abortions.

Three people were killed in the shooting. One of the victims was a police officer who responded to a call for help. The suspect has been identified as Robert Lewis Dear, who was reportedly captured on the scene in Colorado Springs after surrendering to law enforcement.

According to the Associated Press, Dear had spent part of his time living in a North Carolina shack, and his neighbors described him as an incoherent loner with no known political or religious leanings. However, John Suthers, the Republican mayor of Colorado Springs, suggested people could draw conclusions about a motive for the attack by drawing “inferences from where it took place.”

President Obama issued a statement on the shooting Saturday that did not address the question of opposition to abortion as a potential motive. Instead, the president suggested that the incident is further proof of the need for stronger gun control.

“We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting 12 people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. What we do know is that he killed a cop in the line of duty, along with two of the citizens that police officer was trying to protect,” Obama said, adding, “This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal.”

The three top Democrats vying to be Obama’s successor all addressed the shooting on Twitter. Both frontrunner Hillary Clinton and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley issued expressions of support for Planned Parenthood. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., took things a step further and suggested antiabortion rhetoric could have encouraged the attack.

“I strongly support Planned Parenthood and the work it’s doing. I hope people realize that bitter rhetoric can have unintended consequences,” Sanders wrote.

Indeed, all of the leading Republican candidates have expressed opposition to Planned Parenthood. And almost none of them have made any public comment on the shooting.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is the only major Republican presidential hopeful who has tweeted about the incident.

“Praying for the loved ones of those killed, those injured & first responders who bravely got the situation under control in Colorado Springs,” Cruz wrote.

Yahoo News reached out to the campaigns of all of the other leading Republicans to see if they had any comment on the shootings. As of this writing, Anna Epstein, a spokeswoman for businesswoman Carly Fiorina was the only one to respond.

“Carly will be on Fox News Sunday tomorrow, and she’ll likely react then,” Epstein said.

There was no comment on the shooting from representatives for real estate mogul Donald Trump, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

All nine of these Republicans have spoken out against Planned Parenthood and expressed support for taking federal funding from the organization. Cruz has led a congressional push to defund Planned Parenthood by threatening a government shutdown.

A Democratic operative who works in Colorado told Yahoo News they believe the shooting will hurt the GOP field because it “reminds voters of the relentless Republican campaign against women’s health and the right to choose.” They also suggested the shooting would highlight Republican opposition to gun control.

In messages to Yahoo News, Amanda Carpenter, a Republican strategist and former top aide to Cruz, acknowledged that the shooting could be “politically uncomfortable” for GOP candidates because they oppose Planned Parenthood and also abhor the violent shooting. Carpenter suggested that the candidates should have followed Cruz’s example and commented on the shooting regardless of their stance on abortion.

“Candidates can choose to avoid commenting on crisis, but a president cannot,” Carpenter said. “While it’s prudent to wait for all information, GOP candidates should easily be able to express sorrow, whether this situation is politically uncomfortable or not.”

Carpenter went on to describe the silence in the Republican field as “sad.”

“This event happened 24 hours ago, and lives were lost. It’s sad more candidates can’t show their support for those in mourning. Republicans can disagree with what PP does and grieve for those injured and killed,” she said. “Being pro-life means opposing murder, period. Law enforcement lives are at risk each day, as shown in Colorado yesterday. They need our support more than ever, and the GOP should not hesitate to give it.”
