Latest Attempt to try & Bypass Congress

President Obama may only have four months left in his term – but he hasn’t stopped delivering on his commitments to the largest abortion business in the nation, Planned Parenthood.

His latest act on behalf of the abortion giant is to try and bypass Congress and stop states from taking taxpayer dollars AWAY from Planned Parenthood in order to send them to community health centers that protect, not destroy life.

Representative Diane Black – a champion for the unborn – wrote an op-ed at Fox News last week where she explained how her state is ensuring that Title X funds (a government grant to states) go to help those who need it most:

“All 95 counties in my state [Tennessee] have identified community health centers and other providers aside from Planned Parenthood who meet all applicable eligibility criteria to receive funding, effectively cutting off Planned Parenthood’s access to Title X funds in Tennessee while protecting the needs of underserved women and families.”

But Planned Parenthood already receives over half a BILLION of our tax dollars every year (that’s $1.26 MILLION dollars a day). What makes them think they’re entitled to even more of our hard-earned dollars to continue pushing a culture of death?

Susan B. Anthony List exists to help elect champions for LIFE – and then support them once they’re in office. Thanks to your partnership, our team supports pro-life women leaders like Rep. Diane Black and Sen. Joni Ernst – women who are leading the charge to stop Obama’s latest attempt to violate our conscience rights and send even more of our money to Planned Parenthood so that they can destroy innocent lives.

Black pastor: If black lives matter to Planned Parenthood, why don’t they tell the TRUTH about Abortion?

WATCH: Black pastor: If black lives matter to Planned Parenthood, why don’t they tell the TRUTH about abortion?

September 26, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – If Planned Parenthood is really concerned about black lives, why don’t they tell the black community the truth about abortion? That’s one of the questions Rev. Walter Hoye asks in a new, compact video aimed at exposing the one thing the abortion industry really cares about.

For every black person killed by homicide in 2013, there are 69 who died by abortion. In fact, as the descriptor below Hoye’s video observes, “Abortion is the #1 cause of death in Black America. ”

Hoye also points out that abortion increases breast cancer, and Planned Parenthood gets hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding. Why won’t anyone speak up about this travesty, which disproportionately affects the African-American community?

Rev. Hoye hints at the reason with his soundtrack: Clyde McPhatter and the Drifters’ rendition of “Money, Honey.”

Rev. Hoye has marshaled an impressive array of facts about the abortion industry, and especially how it affects the black community, compiling them at this link. But rather than overwhelm his audience, he’s parceling them out in digestible, one-minute increments via video.

“Abortion is the number one cause of death in black America,” Rev. Hoye says.

He hopes this video series will prove to black Americans how acute the crisis is for babies in the womb – and how long-ingrained voting patters are decimating cities across the nation.

“I’m outta here,” Rev. Hoye says. “There’s no way our next president can be a Democrat.”

New video debunks 3 percent abortion myth

New video debunks Planned Parenthood’s 3 percent abortion myth

By Becky Yeh

Planned Parenthood performs an abortion every 97 seconds.

Planned Parenthood performs an abortion every 97 seconds.

A new video released by Live Action exposes how Planned Parenthood manipulates its own data to cover up the fact that abortion – not women’s health care – accounts for the lion’s share of the corporation’s services for pregnant women.

Live Action’s motion-graphics video breaks down Planned Parenthood’s self-reported corporate data, revealing how abortion is the core service and chief money-maker for the abortion chain.

Contrary to repeated claims by Planned Parenthood executives, mainstream media, and abortion advocates that abortion only accounts for 3 percent of its services, one in eight Planned Parenthood patients gets an abortion. The corporation commits over 30 percent of the nation’s abortions – over 320,000 abortions every year – or one abortion every 97 seconds.

To arrive at the 3 percent figure, Planned Parenthood divides the number of abortions by the number of services the facilities provide. These services, which include STI testing, pregnancy tests, pap smears, breast exams, birth control, and others, are counted equally with an abortion procedure. So even though abortion is much more profitable for Planned Parenthood, an abortion procedure is calculated as equivalent to a pregnancy test or contraception.

Live Action President Lila Rose called Planned Parenthood’s marketing gimmick a cover-up of its abortion-driven agenda.

“To justify its half billion dollars in taxpayer funding, Planned Parenthood downplays abortion — falsely claiming that it only makes up three percent of its business — and instead plays up its cancer screenings and so-called ‘women’s health care.’ However, Planned Parenthood’s own numbers prove it’s an abortion corporation, focused on abortion, not on women’s health care. Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform a single mammogram, and it performs less than two percent of all women’s cancer screenings in the United States, yet it commits over 30 percent of America’s abortions.”

Slate and the Washington Post, which gave Planned Parenthood “three pinocchios” for this misleading claim, have debunked the abortion giant’s 3 percent myth.

Although the abortion giant claims it is necessary for women’s health, the facts prove quite the contrary. Based on national abortion data, Planned Parenthood performs less than 2 percent of all cancer screenings for women, even less pap tests, and zero mammograms, as detailed in the data below:

· Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for Pap tests is 0.97%. It performed 271,539 tests in fiscal year 2014-15, out of 28.1 million tests nationwide.

· Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for clinical breast exams is 1.8%. It performed 363,803 exams in fiscal year 2014-15, out of 20 million exams nationwide. (Note: These are physical exams, not mammograms. Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms.)

· Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for abortions is 30.6%. It committed 323,999 abortions in fiscal year 2014-15, out of approximately 1.06 million abortions nationwide.

· Planned Parenthood aborts 160 children for every one child it refers out for adoption.

On the other hand, abortion accounts for over 90 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services for pregnant women.

“Planned Parenthood is spending the most it ever has — and double what it spent in 2012 — to influence this year’s election. Citizens have a right to know the truth behind an organization that has their politicians’ ears,” said Rose. “We are giving activists a powerful new tool to counter one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest lies, and we have the platforms in place to ensure this video is seen by tens of millions of people.”

“The ‘3% Abortion Myth’ video shows voters how Planned Parenthood calculates its absurd three percent number to deliberately mislead the public and downplay its abortion business. Even the Washington Post and Slate.com have called out the abortion chain for its deception. Three percent is not a real number, but over 320,000 abortions a year and a 30 percent market share of all U.S. abortions are,” Rose continued.

“Planned Parenthood is so focused on abortion that it aborts 160 children for every one child it refers out for adoption. If a woman with an unwanted pregnancy goes to Planned Parenthood, that child is 160 times more likely to be poisoned or dismembered than to be put up for adoption to a waiting family.”

Where Do the Presidential Candidates Stand on Abortion?

Where do the Presidential Candidates Stand on Abortion?

2016 POTUS comparison

Every presidential election year, National Right to Life publishes a downloadable comparison flyer about the presidential candidates. This year’s flyer is entitled “Where Do the Candidates Stand on Abortion?” The downloadable version of “Where Do the Candidates Stand on Abortion?” is available at: www.nrlc.org/uploads/2016POTUScomparison.pdf

Not surprisingly, the candidates have very different views on abortion. Here is an overview of their positions on abortion-related issues.

Abortion on Demand

Donald Trump said, “Let me be clear – I am pro-life,” adding, “I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me.”

In contrast, in the U.S. Senate Hillary Clinton voted to endorse Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision which allows abortion for any reason. She says, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” later adding she believed this to be true even on the unborn child’s due date.

Partial-Birth Abortion

The partial-birth abortion procedure – used from the fifth month on – involves pulling a living baby feet-first out of the womb, except for the head, puncturing the skull and suctioning out the brain. The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007, in a 5-4 decision.

In 2000, in his book The America We Deserve, Donald Trump wrote that after consulting with doctors about the partial-birth abortion procedure he concluded that he would support a ban on that method.

In 2003, Hillary Clinton voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (voted to allow partial-birth abortions to continue) every chance she got.

Nominations to the U.S. Supreme Court

The next president may have the opportunity to appoint three or four justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In May 2016, Donald Trump released a list of eleven conservative judges whom he would consider for a Supreme Court vacancy, saying, “By the way, these judges are all pro-life.”

Hillary Clinton has said that she would only nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold the decision that legalized abortion on demand, saying, “I would not appoint someone who didn’t think Roe v. Wade is settled law.”

Vice Presidential Candidates

The contrasting positions of the vice presidential candidates are listed.

Donald Trump chose Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be his running mate. Mike Pence had a solid pro-life voting record on abortion during 12 years in the U.S. House, including votes for passage of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. As governor of Indiana, Mike Pence champions pro-life measures.

Hillary Clinton chose U.S. Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate. Tim Kaine voted against the pro-life position in the U.S. Senate every chance he got, even voting against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Tim Kaine co-sponsored a bill (S.217) that would nullify virtually all state limits on abortion, including late abortions.

Party Platforms

The party platforms reveal a great contrast on abortion.

The Republican Party Platform affirms “that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life,” opposes using government funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund abortion providers, and supports legislation to assist babies who survive abortion.

The Democratic Party Platform supports abortion on demand, and calls for repeal of the Hyde Amendment (which restricts the use of federal funds for abortion). The platform also supports government funding of abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

First Minor Killed by Euthanasia in Belgium after Child Euthanasia Legalized

First minor killed by euthanasia in Belgium after child euthanasia legalized

Claire Chretien Claire Chretien Follow Claire

BELGIUM, September 19, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Belgium’s federal euthanasia commission confirmed Saturday the country’s first instance of child euthanasia, which became legal in 2014.

Belgian media suggested the minor killed via lethal injection was 17. Some media also suggested the teen was Dutch. In the Netherlands, euthanasia is legal for children over 12.

Wim Distelmans, the head of the Belgian euthanasia commission, said the minor had a terminal illness and was “suffering unbearable physical pain.”

Belgian law allows minors with terminal illnesses who face “unbearable suffering” to receive euthanasia if their parents consent.

Belgium legalized euthanasia for adults in 2002. Since then, the number of people who have died via legal, lethal injections administered by doctors has steadily risen. More than 2,000 adults were killed by euthanasia last year. In 2014, more than 1,900 were killed.

Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, told LifeSiteNews that “sadly,” this case isn’t surprising.

“None of this should surprise us,” Schadenberg told LifeSiteNews. “Once you’ve allowed killing and you’ve said killing is OK, then the only question is who? That’s all that’s left.”

“Once you’ve said it’s OK to kill, why would you not allow a 17-year-old in the same condition as 18-year-old, or even a 13-year-old who’s in the same condition as an 18-year-old, to have a lethal injection?” Schadenberg asked. He said Belgium’s euthanasia of a minor should be a warning to Canadians.

“Once you say it’s OK for the doctor to lethally inject you,” as Canadian law now allows for adults, then “the sky is the limit,” he said.

Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the President of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, said the news “pains us as Christians, but it also pains us as persons.”

This was “an abuse of a minor,” and an “abomination,” said Cardinal Elio Sgreccia, president emeritus of the Pontifical Academy for Life and an international bioethics expert. He called death as therapy a “legal monster without equal.”

“Europe cannot watch in silence,” Sgreccia said.

“This is about a doctor agreeing to cause the death of [a] person,” Schadenberg said.
