Cecile Richards departs from Planned Parenthood with a bloody resume, a diminished business model, and the primary skills of promoting abortion while skillfully maneuvering politicians to advance her cause. As she launches her book tour for “Make Trouble,” her new book, she leaves a troubled organization just as the Department of Justice undertakes a long overdue investigation of Planned Parenthood’s handling of the sale and distribution of pre-born baby body parts.
Should the government be able to force you to advocate for things you believe are harmful? Consider the outrage if vegetarian nutritionists were forced to extoll the health benefits of beef or if breast-feeding advocates in the La Leche League had to recommend baby formula or if anti-war protestors had to mention Army recruitment. That kind of government interference in free speech would be seen as ridiculous if applied to such passions. But people opposed to abortion face such pressure now in California.
History seems prepared to repeat itself as undocumented, pregnant teenagers are caught in the web of abortion advocates looking for a new “right.” In October 2017, a pregnant, illegal immigrant teenager, with the help of the ACLU, sought an abortion in the United States. At the time, I argued that the case could lead to a “Roe v. Wade 2.0” or an international Jane Roe creating a “right” to abortion for all on U.S. soil, whether or not the individual was a citizen of the United States. This was not idle speculation or fundraising rhetoric.
Students for Life of America announced today a strategic effort to call on U.S. Senators in key states to defund Planned Parenthood at the first available opportunity. The five states being targeted include West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Kentucky.
A move is underway to transform California public universities from institutions dedicated to educating and empowering the nation’s next generation of leaders into abortion vendors. The California state assembly is now considering SB 320, a measure that would mandate that all California state-funded universities administer RU-486, a drug designed to induce abortion, on their campuses. The idea is to have schools partner with mega-abortion providers so that students at risk from a lonely and potentially dangerous abortion can access them from their dorm rooms.
As American voices reach a fever pitch over sexual abuse allegations against powerful men and more women adopt the #MeToo rallying cry every day, there’s still a trend of fatal abuse that has received nary a peep of condemnation from Hollywood elite. Shrouded in silence, abusive men across the country — and the world — drug unsuspecting pregnant partners with the intention of aborting the preborn children for whom they do not want to take responsibility. With how little attention these crimes receive from the media, one may think these abusers are few and far between. They are not.
A year after Donald Trump’s inauguration, midterm elections are gearing up to give America a brand new, fresh spectacle on the political battlefield. millennial voters, in particular, have kept both Republican and Democrat candidates on alert as the younger demographic has refused to settle into predictable voting patterns or adopt wholeheartedly the platform of either party. Special elections in Virginia and Alabama gave renewed hope to the Democratic Party, and the question of how to secure the millennial vote is a central concern.
David Perry, a “senior academic adviser” at University of Minnesota, and a former professor at Dominican University, recently wrote a piece for The Nation, where he champions abortion for babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or other possible mental or physical disabilities.
