Defund Planned Parenthood

A few days ago, we asked you to call your Member of Congress to call for a moratorium of funding on Planned Parenthood. They heard you! But instead of just a one year moratorium, pro-life Senators took it a step further – the Senate is going to vote on a bill to entirely defund Planned Parenthood! Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) just introduced S. 1881, to protect women’s health and defund Planned Parenthood. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised a vote on it next week, before the Senate recesses for August.

When will we decide we’ve have had enough? How much more appalling evidence do we need from Planned Parenthood before we officially cut ties between the taxpayer and this abortion giant that scavenges baby parts and haggles for the cost of each “specimen?” I say it’s past time to tell Congress enough is enough. Planned Parenthood doesn’t need or deserve any of our hard-earned taxpayer dollars.

Planned Parenthood, whose motto is “Care. No matter what,” cares mostly for their bottom line. While engaging in the horrific practices of sifting through aborted babies’ parts to see which organs they can salvage and sell, they try to portray an image of respectable, compassionate health care providers. Ironic? Thankfully, Americans are finally seeing through Planned Parenthood’s carefully crafted ... (more)

Supreme Court's Marriage Ruling is Shocking Abuse of Power, Will Never Be Accepted

Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins responded today to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision forcing the people in all 50 states to embrace same-sex “marriage,”  regardless of their votes to define marriage in their states as a man-woman institution.

Of the decision FRC President Tony Perkins said:

"Five justices on the Supreme Court have overturned the votes of 50 million Americans and demanded that the American people walk away from millennia of history and the reality of human nature.

“In reaching a decision so lacking in foundation in the text of the Constitution, in our history, and in our traditions, the Court has done serious damage to its own legitimacy.

 “No court can overturn natural law.  Nature and Nature’s God, hailed by the signers of our Declaration of Independence as the very source of law, cannot be usurped by the edict of a court, even the United States Supreme Court.

by Ken Blackwell

Ken Blackwell is Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The American Thinker on July 24, 2015. Planned Parenthood pays no taxes. Under President Obama, made more than $500 million in profits, but they claim to be a “non-profit” organization. They kill more 800 children every day.

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared on The Stream on July 17, 2015. Christians disagree about many things, some more important than others. Among Evangelical Protestants, there is universal concurrence on the core issues of the faith. The key aspects of our theology are well-expressed in the historic Lausanne Covenant, for example. On secondary issues, disputes begin. The covenantal versus dispensational hermeneutic, eschatology, whether or not to drink alcohol, head-coverings ... (more)
