Planned Parenthood Rakes in Taxpayer Dollars

By Tony Perkins - Posted at The Daily Signal:

Breaking the law doesn’t help your chances for earning federal dollars—but apparently, it doesn’t hurt them either. If there’s one thing Planned Parenthood’s learned over the last few years, it’s that crime does pay. A lot, according to the Government Accountability Office.

Despite piles of evidence (some of it from the group’s own mouth) that Cecile Richards’ group was illegally selling baby body parts (after performing equally illegal late-term abortions), a new report shows the wrongdoing hasn’t made the slightest dent in its taxpayer-funded gravy train—at least on the federal level.

On the contrary, GAO officials found, being referred for criminal prosecution didn’t result in so much as a financial blip for Richards and company. Between 2013 and 2015, Planned Parenthood, its international affiliates, and Marie Stopes International dug deep into taxpayers’ pockets, banking a whopping $1.5 billion from federal and state programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Title X, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Our Nation’s Grotesque Inconsistency on Babies and Life

By Kyle Butt, M.Div. - Posted at Apologetics Press

A gruesome story surfaced in the Summer of 2016. A 20-year-old college student named Emile Weaver gave birth to a baby in the sorority house of Delta Gamma Theta in New Concord, Ohio. She did not want the baby, so she cut the umbilical cord, threw the baby in a plastic trash bag, and put it in the garbage bin.1 Apparently, Weaver had tried drugs, alcohol, and numerous other substances and activities to kill the baby inutero, all to no avail. When the baby was born, after all the other methods of attempted murder had failed, Weaver finally succeeded in killing her baby.

Her fellow sorority sisters discovered her crime, found the baby in the trash, and alerted authorities. Weaver was charged with murder. “A jury found her guilty of aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and two counts of tampering with evidence.”2 The judge sentenced her to life in prison without parole. He stated that she was selfish and that her baby was to her “an inco…

An Absurd Fate: What Happens to Abandoned Embryos?

By Jennifer Lahl - Posted at The Public Discourse:
A recent embryo custody battle highlights the plight of the hundreds of thousands of frozen embryos in the United States today.I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it almost always starts with an emotional story.

The latest situation is an embryo custody battle in Arizona. It highlights the depth of real human emotions connected to having children and building a family, and the ways in which human lives are affected by a justice system that seeks to do what is right in the midst of a true ethical mess. As with all embryo custody battles, there are never any winners. There are plenty of losers, though, and the embryos have the most to lose by far.

This case, of course, tugs at our heartstrings. In 2014, at the age of thirty-three, Ruby Torres was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer—a very aggressive breast cancer that has the lowest five-year survival rate of all breast cancers. Torres was engaged at the time of her dia…
