Planned Parenthood Makes Major Admission About Body Part Harvesting

During the preliminary hearing this week in the criminal case against undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, a “semi-retired” Planned Parenthood executive admitted that the abortion business had no ban on altering abortion procedures in order to better harvest baby body parts that would later be sold, allegedly for a profit.

According to reporting from Lianne Laurence at LifeSiteNews, “Doe 10,” the former medical director at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles until 2013, “admitted under questioning Wednesday by Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society and lawyer for Daleiden, that the Planned Parenthood affiliates she worked in had no rule against changing the abortion procedure ‘technique’ in order to obtain better baby body parts.”

As noted by Laurence, “federal consent rules stipulate a doctor cannot change the method of a medical procedure without a patient’s consent.”

“‘Doe 10’ testified that Planned Parenthood abortionists ‘would never change the method’ but admitted Planned Parenthood began making the distinction between ‘technique’ and ‘method’ after the [Center for Medical Progress] undercover videos were released,” the report noted.

“We had to grapple with fallout from videos,” the abortion executive, who is not allowed to be named, admitted to the court. “We had to be more specific.” (Read more from “Planned Parenthood Makes Major Admission About Body Part Harvesting” HERE)

Another State to Legalize Assisted Suicide

Starting next week, physician-assisted suicide will be legal in Maine. . .

Thursday night, the Maine CDC asked for input from doctors and other stake holders in end of life care.

Specifically, the agency wants to know what data they should collect from doctors.

“I always enjoy hearing from my fellow physicians, people who are in the hospice who are concerned about this and in the terminal phase of their life and what their feelings about the law are,” Rep. Patty Hymanson said. (Read more from “Another State to Legalize Assisted Suicide” HERE)

Homosexual Lawyers, Community Rally to Defense of High Schooler Who Murdered, Stabbed Classmates

. . .Abel Cedeno was an 18-year-old student at the Urban Assembly for Wildlife Conservation in the Bronx when he in September 2017 killed his 14-year-old schoolmate, Matthew McCree. He also grievously wounded another student, Ariane Laboy. . .

Outside of the Bronx courtroom, Cedeno’s case became “something of a cause célèbre,” according to The New York Times. LGBT activists rallied to his defense, holding him up as a symbol of how young people face “homophobic” persecution. Some argued that the school should have taken action against his bullies.

Two gay lawyers, Christopher Lynn and Robert Feldman, represented Cedeno at no charges, dubbing his a “gay pride trial.”

Several local elected officials also supported Cedeno, including City Councilman Rubén Díaz Sr., who has been criticized for making homophobic remarks. Diaz helped Cedeno post bail soon after he was charged and later wrote a letter to the judge urging leniency in his sentencing. . .

Darcel Clark, the Bronx district attorney, said in a statement Tuesday: “There was no evidence at trial that Matthew McCree or Ariane Laboy had ever bullied the defendant. His explosion of rage has left so many lives in ruins, including his own.” (Read more from “Homosexual Lawyers, Community Rally to Defense of High Schooler Who Murdered, Stabbed Classmates” HERE)

Cancer Society Claims Men Without Cervixes Can Get Cervical Cancer

There is no explanation for the following story but mass hysteria, which is a phenomenon where a large group of people can hallucinate the same delusion all at once. That’s exactly what is happening with the trans-hysterical movement in Western countries. Take Canada for example. These people north of our border have lost their minds, and I don’t mean just random folks, but major institutions like the Canadian Cancer Society.

A new ad campaign to fight cervical cancer is dominated by a transgender person who is a biological male and has no cervix. . .

The site goes onto claim that the risk of cervical cancer for a person with no cervix is very low. “If you’re a trans woman, you may not have given much thought to Pap tests and cervical cancer. And if you haven’t, that makes a fair amount of sense. After all, in order to get cervical cancer, you need to have a cervix.” But don’t be fooled by the seeming clarity of this statement. They go on to talk themselves out of it.

“If, however, you’re a trans woman who has had bottom surgery to create a vagina (vaginoplasty) and possibly a cervix, there’s a very small risk that you can develop cancer in the tissues of your neo-vagina or neo-cervix. The risk depends on the type of surgery you had, the type of tissue used to create your vagina and cervix and your personal health history. Talk to your healthcare provider to figure out your specific cancer-screening needs as part of your overall pelvic health following surgery.”

Facebook Labels Pro-Life Group as Fake News Based on Abortionists’ Advice

A group of Republican senators is calling out Facebook for suppressing the views of a pro-life organization by rating its abortion-related content as “false” based on the opinions of abortionists.

“Yet again, Facebook’s pattern of censorship has reared its ugly head,” begins a letter sent to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg from GOP Sens. Josh Hawley, Mo.; Ted Cruz, Texas; Kevin Cramer, N.D.; and Mike Braun, Ind., on Wednesday.

In late August, Facebook hit pro-life advocacy group Live Action with a “false” rating after a “fact check” on two videos that claimed abortion is not medically necessary. One video featured board-certified neonatologist Dr. Kendra Kolb and was titled “The Pro-Life Reply to ‘Abortion Can Be Medically Necessary.’” The other featured Live Action founder and president Lila Rose explaining why abortion isn’t medically necessary.

At the time of the “false” rating, Rose described the action as “potentially the most devastating thing a tech company has done against a pro-life message” and accused Facebook of “effectively taking a position in this debate.” Rose also said she had been told that the group’s reach would be suppressed as a result of the action.

Facebook’s third-party “fact-checking” mechanism made the determination based on the viewpoints of abortionists Robyn Schickler and Daniel Grossman. Schickler went so far as to say that “all reasons for deciding to seek abortion care are valid; no one reason is better than another.”

“No reasonable person would describe Grossman or Schickler as neutral or objective when it comes to the issue of abortion, yet Facebook relied on their rating to suppress and censor a pro-life organization with more than 3 million followers,” the group of senators wrote, calling the actions “clear violations” of “Facebook’s supposed commitment to non-partisanship.”

In contrast, the position that abortion isn’t medically necessary is “a widely-held view, one shared by the thousands of members of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstretricians & Gynecologists, among others,” the senators added.

“Your company, like Twitter, Google, Pinterest and so many other major Silicon Valley social media firms, has been repeatedly confronted with evidence of bias against those with conservative viewpoints, especially on the issue of abortion,” the letter reads. “And in response you have repeatedly insisted that these numerous incidents of discrimination, censorship, and suppression of speech are merely glitches, not evidence of systemic bias.”

“But if this isn’t bias, what is?” the lawmakers asked Zuckerberg. “The only thing more astonishing than your claim to nonpartisanship is your complete failure to back that claim with proof.”

The senators conclude by calling on the social media company to “immediately issue a correction, remove any restrictions placed on the pages of Live Action and Lila Rose, and submit to an external audit.”

Last week, Live Action also announced that it had sent out legal “cease and desist” letters to YouTube and Pinterest on claims that the tech companies had “violated the law by engaging in illegal and discriminatory action against the organization based on its pro-life ideology and mission.” (For more from the author of “Facebook Labels Pro-Life Group as Fake News Based on Abortionists’ Advice” please click HERE)

Vaping-Related Disease Spurs Calls for Tighter Rules in Congress

Lawmakers are seizing on the outbreak of a vaping-related illness to push for more aggressive regulation of the young but fast-growing e-cigarette industry.

Democrats and increasing numbers of Republicans want age restrictions, flavor bans, and marketing crackdowns. They want the FDA to move faster to investigate and regulate e-cigarettes, touted by the industry as a way to reduce harm from traditional cigarette smoking but which has also led to what the FDA calls an “epidemic” of youth vaping of nicotine.

Health authorities haven’t fully untangled what’s causing the respiratory disease, which has potentially affected more than 450 and killed six. Public health officials across 33 states have linked many of the cases to vaped forms of marijuana and its component CBD — both of which are in legal but in regulatory limbo. Counterfeit or black market nicotine vapes may also have a role — and legal vapes haven’t been totally ruled out, but they aren’t dominating the public health investigation into the illness.

Yet anti-tobacco lawmakers and children’s health advocates are using the moment to demand more regulation of e-cigarettes, including industry powerhouse Juul. They want to go further than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s bill, which would raise the age for buying all tobacco to 21. And they want consistent national standards, not a state-by-state patchwork as some areas of the country plow ahead on flavor bans.

2020 Candidate Breaks Away from Dems, Says She Actually Supports Some Restrictions on Abortion

Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) broke with other members of her party when she revealed that she believed that abortion should be limited, with exceptions, to before the start of a pregnancy’s third trimester. She also criticized her fellow Democrats for supporting open borders policies.

During an interview Monday, libertarian host Dave Rubin asked Gabbard to clarify her position on abortion. Rubin noted that Gabbard used to be pro-life and admitted that he was becoming more pro-life due to the recently radical abortion policies espoused by members of the Democratic Party.

Gabbard said that her own position had changed along with her “understanding of the role of government.” She said she took “a more libertarian position on this issue: that government really shouldn’t be in that place of dictating to a woman the choice that she should make.”

“I think that there should be some restrictions, though,” she continued. “You know, for me personally, I would not make that choice for myself, but I don’t believe that I should be telling anyone else the kinds of decisions that they should make for themselves or for their family. And, therefore, a woman should have a right to choose. And I will stand up and protect her right to do so.”

She also said that she believed that abortion should be restricted at “the third trimester, unless a woman’s life or severe consequences is at risk, then there shouldn’t be an abortion in the third trimester.” (Read more from “2020 Candidate Breaks Away from Dems, Says She Actually Supports Some Restrictions on Abortion” HERE)

‘Angel Mom’ Booed While Testifying About Son Killed by Illegal Alien

Last week, Boston mother Maureen Maloney was booed while testifying about the death of her son Matthew Denice, who was killed in 2011 by a drunk-driving illegal with a criminal history. Maloney was testifying at the State House in opposition to a bill seeking to grant driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

“At the start of her testimony, Maloney held up a photo of Matthew and recalled how he was killed by an illegal immigrant drunk behind the wheel. About halfway into her 3 minutes of testimony, a man behind Maloney booed the grieving mother,” the Boston Herald reported.

“It just made me more determined,” Maloney told the outlet. “I don’t want other people to lose their lives like Matthew did. I don’t want other families to go through the heartache that my family deals with. And that’s where I get the strength and the stamina to keep doing this.”

This was not the first time the “Angel Mom” has been booed while discussing the tragic death of her son. “A few years ago, Maloney spoke out against a similar proposal, and a senator had given her his additional three minutes to testify. When Maloney went over the three minutes, she said people in the audience began booing and hollering that her time was up,” the Herald reported. . .

Maloney said she prayed to her son for strength before giving her testimony last week, the Herald noted. “I was just asking him to guide me with my testimony and help me to not have anger in my heart towards the other side,” she said. “Just do some work through me, use me to try to save other lives.” (Read more from “‘Angel Mom’ Booed While Testifying About Son Killed by Illegal Alien” HERE)

Church Vandalized After Opposing Drag Queen Story Hour

A Los Angeles area church was vandalized over the weekend after opposing city-run events where men dressed in drag read books to children at public libraries.

A pastor of the South Bay Pentecostal Church said he believes “there is no doubt” the crime was committed against the house of worship for their opposition to “Drag Queen Storytime,” according to ABC 10 News San Diego. . .

“Sure enough, at every corner there were phrases, hateful words, and graffiti on the walls of our church,” said pastor Amado Huizar. The messages were reportedly “associated with Satan,” according to the ABC affiliate.

“Huizar said the church’s surveillance system captured two men parking their sedan in the church parking lot at around 3:00 a.m. Sunday and walking toward the building,” the report detailed. “Fifteen minutes later, they are seen jumping back into the car with what looked to be spray cans in their hands.” . . .

“The Chula Vista Public Library said this is a reflection of our community. I beg to differ,” the pastor said, adding, “If the people want to make that happen, do it at a private setting, at a book store or at a home, but not at the Chula Vista Public Library.” (Read more from “Church Vandalized After Opposing Drag Queen Story Hour” HERE)

Study: Fewer People Are Getting Married. the Reason Why Is Stunning

By INC. . .Have you noticed, indeed, that you’ve been invited to fewer weddings lately? . .

Let’s turn, then, to the large brains at Cornell University to enlighten us as to why.

Their new study, tantalizingly entitled Mismatches In the Marriage Market, tried to examine what might lie behind the trend toward more people living non-married lives. . .

Yet that same Pew Research poll cited another important aspect:

About seven-in-ten adults (71 percent) said it was very important for a man to be able to support a family financially to be a good husband or partner, while just 32 percent said the same for a woman to be a good wife or partner.

Mismatches in the Marriage Market

By Wiley Online Library. . .This study identifies recent marriages from the 2008 to 2012 and 2013 to 2017 cumulative 5‐year files of the American Community Survey. Data imputation methods provide estimates of the sociodemographic characteristics of unmarried women’s potential (or synthetic) spouses who resemble the husbands of otherwise comparable married women. These estimates are compared with the actual distribution of unmarried men at the national, state, and local area levels to identify marriage market imbalances. . .

These synthetic husbands have an average income that is about 58% higher than the actual unmarried men that are currently available to unmarried women. They also are 30% more likely to be employed (90% vs. 70%) and 19% more likely to have a college degree (30% vs. 25%). Racial and ethnic minorities, especially Black women, face serious shortages of potential marital partners, as do low socioeconomic status and high socioeconomic status unmarried women, both at the national and subnational levels. . .

This study reveals large deficits in the supply of potential male spouses. One implication is that the unmarried may remain unmarried or marry less well‐suited partners.
