Planned Parenthood to Spend $3 Million to Attack Mitt Romney
The biggest abortion business in the nation is prepared to spend heavily to ensure the hundreds of millions it receives in federal funding continues, by launching an aggressive attack on presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the political arm of the company that does more than 300,000 abortions annually and has endorsed Obama, plans to spend more than $3 million to target voters in the battleground states of Ohio and Virginia with ads bashing Romney for wanting to cut its taxpayer funding. The $3.2 million campaign will feature everything from online ads to old-fashioned door to door politics. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/planned-parenthood-to-spend-3-million-to-attack-mitt-romney/
Obama s Truth Team Engages in Falsehood on GOP, Abortion
The Obama Truth Team apparently can t discern between fact and fiction when it comes to the Republican Party s pro-life platform and what it says and does on abortion.
Whereas the platform calls for a Human Life Amendment, while allowing states to determine the specifics of such a pro-life amendment protecting unborn children against abortion, the Obama campaign is misleading voters by falsely claiming the Republican party wants to ban abortion in all cases. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/obamas-truth-team-engages-in-falsehood-on-gop-abortion/
Actress Ellen Barkin Hopes Hurricane Kills Pro-Life Republicans
Actress Ellen Barkin created a stir on Twitter today when she sent out a re-tweet of a message someone sent saying they hoped Hurricane Isaac would hit the Republican convention and was every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean.
The reaction from conservatives was quick to her class-less Tweet. I wonder if @EllenBarkin will feel badly at all when #Isaac doesn t wash the GOPers out to sea but in fact wipes out New Orleans, one person responded. Bryan Kemper, Director of Youth Outreach for Priests for Life, said: This is why we call pro-abortion people anti-life. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/actress-ellen-barkin-hopes-hurricane-kills-pro-life-republicans/
Samuel L. Jackson: Unfair Republicans Were Spared From Hurricane
Samuel L. Jackson is getting razzed on Twitter by conservatives upset with his comments about the Republican convention, which officially started today. Hurricane Isaac is heading towards the Gulf Coast and narrowly missed Tampa Florida, site of the GOP event.
Jackson is not happy about that. Today, he tweeted it was unfair that Tropical Storm Isaac had spared the GOP convention and is heading for New Orleans instead. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/samuel-l-jackson-unfair-republicans-were-spared-from-hurricane/
Planned Parenthood: Using Your Tax Money to Promote Obama
Birds of a feather flock together, especially when one bird is funneling hundreds of millions of dollars a year to the other.
Case in point: Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and the Obama administration. The administration oversaw the transfer of nearly half a billion dollars to the abortion giant last year, and now Richards has announced a Planned Parenthood bus tour in support of Obama s re-election campaign. Since no one knows exactly what the bus tour will do, except serve as a campaign arm for the Obama administration, I guess we ll call it the Magical Mystery Bus Tour. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/planned-parenthood-using-your-tax-money-to-promote-obama/
Attack of the Giant Vaginas: Abortion Activists at GOP Convention
Republicans headed to the Tampa convention center for their week-long convention to nominate Mitt Romney to take on pro-abortion President Barack Obama were harassed by abortion activists donning vagina suits.
The giant walking vaginas are none other than activists from the radical liberal group Code Pink bent on making it known that abortion on demand ought to be part of the GOP convention, which is set to approve a pro-life platform protecting women and unborn children. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/attack-of-the-giant-vaginas-abortion-activists-at-gop-convention/
Life in The Midst of Horror: Mother Recalls Pregnancy at Auschwitz
Women today sometimes face a variety of crisis pregnancy situations. Whether it s the lack of a job, not having health care, or little parental or familial support.
One mother who experienced life in the midst of the horror of living at the Auschwitz death camp can identify with any woman who faces a challenging pregnancy. Miriam Rosenthal was faced with a life-altering question. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/life-in-the-midst-of-horror-mother-recalls-pregnancy-at-auschwitz/
War on Women Rhetoric Fails, Romney Leads Obama With Married Women
The War on Women rhetoric of the Obama campaign, Planned Parenthood and other abortion backers appears to be failing at least with married women voters, according to new polling data. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/war-on-women-rhetoric-fails-romney-leads-obama-with-married-women/
The media is falling all over itself attempting to portray Republicans as extremists on abortion because they are set to give final approval today to the plank that calls for a Human Life Amendment protecting unborn children from abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/marco-rubio-defends-gop-pro-life-platform-from-media-attacks/
Students Show Planned Parenthood Names of Women Who Died From Abortion
Students for Life of America team members made sure to greet Planned Parenthood s Big Pink Bus Tour (http://www.ppav.org/ppavirginia/big_pink_bus_tour) when it stopped in Richmond, VA yesterday. We held a 10 foot banner that listed the names of women who have been killed by legal abortion in the U.S., including Tonya Reaves. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/students-show-planned-parenthood-names-of-women-who-died-from-abortion/
Court: Obama Admin Can Fund Killing Embryos, If They re Dead First
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued an opinion late last week in Sherley v. Sebelius allowing the Obama administration to continue funding destructive embryo research. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/court-obama-admin-can-fund-killing-embryos-if-theyre-dead-first/
Rape Victim: Some Rape Claims Are False, Roe Was Based on One
This past week, Congressman Akin was publicly chastised for his comments on abortion in the case of rape, employing the controversial term legitimate rape. . http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/rape-victim-some-rape-claims-are-false-roe-was-based-on-one/
FDA Approves Adult Stem Cell Trial for People With Autism
Autism is as mysterious as it is devastating. Does it have a genetic cause? Is it environmental? Or is there some complex combination of both that derails normal development of communication and social skills. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/27/fda-approves-adult-stem-cell-trial-for-people-with-autism/
