Obama Campaign Speech: No Compromise on Abortion Mandate
During a campaign stop in Denver, Colorado with pro-abortion activist Sandra Fluke, pro-abortion President Barack Obama refused to back down on the HHS mandate his administration put in place forcing religious groups to cover abortion-causing drugs.
Let me tell you there s nothing conservative about a government that prevents a woman from making her own health decisions, he said. Let me tell you something, Denver I don t think your boss should control the care you get, Obama added, referring to the desire by religious groups to not be forced to violate their own consciences. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/08/obama-campaign-speech-no-compromise-on-abortion-mandate/

The abortion practitioner who is getting national attention for telling pro-life advocates that his abortions help rid the world of ugly, black babies turns out to be a prominent Democratic Party donor.

Planned Parenthood Behind Philippines Two-Child Policy Proposal
Planned Parenthood has never been an outspoken opponent of the one-child policy in China, which includes forced abortions and other human rights abuses. Perhaps that explains why it is apparently pushing a similar two-child policy in the Philippines.

Botched Abortion Death Shows Abortion Clinics Not Accountable
The tragic death of 24-year old Tonya Reaves from injuries received during an abortion at a Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic underscores the need for federal and state investigations into the abortion giant, but also highlights the urgent need for abortion clinics to be held to the same medical and regulatory standards as other facilities performing outpatient surgeries. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/08/botched-abortion-death-shows-abortion-clinics-not-accountable/
