The Latest Planned Parenthood Video: Utterly Appalling

Featured image The Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video today. It once again features Holly O’Donnell, a former technician for StemExpress, one of the buyers of baby parts from Planned Parenthood. The video consists mostly of Miss O’Donnell describing an incident in which a baby’s heart was still beating, and she was instructed to cut through the baby’s face so that his brain–the baby was a boy–could be removed »

The Latest Planned Parenthood Video: Did the Mothers Really Consent?

Featured image The latest Center for Medical Progress Planned Parenthood video was released yesterday. It features Holly O’Donnell, the same young woman who appeared in a prior video. O’Donnell, who describes herself in the most recent video as pro-life, is a former blood and tissue procurement technician for StemExpress, which buys babies’ body parts from Planned Parenthood. The main theme of this installment is that, contrary to PP’s repeated assurances, it isn’t »

5th Planned Parenthood Video Discusses “Intact Fetal Cadavers”

Featured image I have suspected from the beginning that the ten or more videos of Planned Parenthood personnel discussing the selling of infant organs would get progressively worse (for PP), and there have been rumors that one or more might contain evidence of intact fetal cadavers or even confirmation of a live birth terminated outside the womb (what normal people would call “infanticide”). Today the Center for Medical Progress released the fifth »

Media Alert

Featured image I will appear this afternoon on the Federalist Radio Hour, hosted by Ben Domenech. We will be discussing the First Amendment as it relates to injunctions barring the release of videos about the selling of fetal tissue. The program will air in Chicago from 3:00 to 4:00 (Central Time) on WCGO. It will also be available by link, which I will post on receipt. »

Planned Parenthood’s Week in Pictures (2)

Featured image As noted yesterday, Hillary is keeping a path open to head to the tall grass over Planned Parenthood. The White House is hedging over whether it will veto a bill from Congress defunding Planned Parenthood. I suspect Planned Parenthood has a pretty good idea of what is on the videos still to come out, and, barring a legal gambit to suppress them, has warned its Democratic allies about how bad »

Planned Parenthood Video #4 Is a Shocker

Featured image The Center for Medical Progress released its fourth undercover Planned Parenthood video today. I won’t attempt to characterize it in detail, except to say that most will find it shocking, especially the last three minutes. There is one exchange that I can’t believe means what it seems to mean: Sometimes if we get, if someone delivers before we are able to see them for a procedure, then we are intact. »

Hillary Looking for Cover Over Planned Parenthood? [With Observation by John]

Featured image Of course Hillary Clinton hedges over everything—did you see her dodge when asked about the Keystone XL pipeline? Even the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza called it “ridiculous.” I wonder what Cillizza makes of her comment this morning about the Planned Parenthood videos? While Hillary professed that she’s unalterably pro-choice and plans to “stand with Planned Parenthood,” there was the telltale hedging, as though she wants to leave room to run »

Planned Parenthood Video No. 3

Featured image The Center for Medical Progress released its third Planned Parenthood video today. It is around 12 minutes long and is posted below. This video is quite different from the first two. It features a woman named Holly O’Donnell, who formerly worked for a company called Stem Express. Her job was to extract intact body parts from aborted babies. The first time she tried to do it, she fainted. The video »

Hitler Learns About the Planned Parenthood Videos

Featured image A couple of readers suggested I work up another “Hitler Learns About. . .” parody of the Planned Parenthood videos. I hesitated a long time on this. There’s nothing funny or ironic about this story, like a botched play call at the Super Bowl. The reductio ad Hitlerum style of argument is usually wrong or trivializing of the most monstrous evil of the last century when applied to current political »

Planned Parenthood’s Week in Pictures

Featured image One of the turning points for the civil rights movement in the early 1960s was when the network news broadcast film of scenes like Bull Connor (member of the Democratic National Committee, keep in mind) turning fire hoses on black civil rights marchers. The videos of the grotesque callousness of Planned Parenthood that are coming out may prove to be a similar turning point for late-term abortion. (Don’t miss Charles »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Ammo Grrrll takes on a new role this week as she plays MS. MANNERS FOR PLANNED NON-PARENTHOOD FLAKS. She writes: Sometimes when a Cosmo Girl of Today has lunch with pals, sipping an amusing little glass of merlot, the question of what to talk about arises. The old admonition against sex, religion, and politics, is, of course, laughingly out of date. Still, there are some topics to be avoided, particularly »

The gospel according to Ms. Hillary

Featured image Speaking at the Women in the World Summit in New York on Thursday night, Madam Hillary came out foursquare in favor of strict enforcement of the law. In the video below, with a brief excerpt from the speech, she sounds like a lawgiver than a law enforcer, and a lawgiver of a most unsavory kind. She decrees, when it comes to abortion, that we have got to get our minds »

Democrats and their masters

Featured image The Democratic Party appears to take the sacramental view of abortion. Any act that might tend to deter an abortion is to be resisted. It’s the abortion equivalent of the positive good school of slavery. If the party as a whole doesn’t subscribe to this view, its funders certainly must. Thus the dramatic turnaround in Democratic support for the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act of 2015. It passed »

Anne Kuster’s ghoulish pro-choice rally [UPDATED]

Featured image Annie Kuster, a Dartmouth grad, represents New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District. She’s a “pro-choice” Democrat. Kuster is locked in a tight race with rising star Republican Marilinda Garcia. Larry Sabato rates the race “leans Democratic.” This morning, Kuster held a rally to announce that she has received the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire, the state’s leading pro-abortion outfit. The rally was held in a room decorated with a skeleton »

CRB: Roe v. Wade at 40

Featured image The Fall 2013 Claremont Review of Books (subscribe here) comes out this week, and our friends at the CRB have allowed us once again to preview some choice (my choice) pieces for our readers. Yesterday we took a look at Michael Nelson’s review of 2012 presidential campaign books. Today we consider the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. Abraham Lincoln famously characterized the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision »

God bless Matt Birk

Featured image Earlier this week, the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens visited President Obama at the White House. The reports I read noted that a few members of the championship squad were unable to attend because they were practicing with a new team. But I saw no mention that any member skipped the event as a protest. It turns out, however, that center Matt Birk did just that. Birk, who retired after »
