Act Now: Congress Must Remove Funds for Planned Parenthood

This week, the Center for Medical Progress released its seventh video in a shocking series that exposes the horrific realities of abortion at Planned Parenthood. Imagine the worst, and this is worse still. Video evidence and firsthand accounts now raise the prospect that babies are being partially delivered to abort them for their parts and even born alive before having their bodies dissected for their organs.

In no civilized society should this even be happening, let alone should taxpayers be funding an organization like Planned Parenthood that engages in such morally bankrupt practices. Congress is now conducting serious investigations of Planned Parenthood, as are at least a dozen states. But that is not enough.

We need you to urge Congress to act as soon as they return to Washington in September to at least pass a moratorium on funding Planned Parenthood while Congress and states investigate these atrocities. The abortion, organ harvesting and possible partial or full delivery of live babies for their organs has shocked the American conscience, as it rightfully should.

by Arina Grossu

Arina Grossu is Director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Daily Signal on September 2, 2015. Planned Parenthood does not offer any women’s health services that are not offered by other health care centers. None. The same services it provides are abundantly available, especially serving low-income individuals in urban and rural locations, while at the same time they don’t perform abortions. Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) offer ... (more)

On Clear Biblical Teaching, Non-Essentials and Homosexuality

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)

Favoring some claims of conscience over others

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Washington Times on August 27, 2015. We face a crisis of conscience today — a crisis forced upon us by elites in Washington who would pick and choose who is allowed to follow their deeply held beliefs and who is to be punished by the government for doing so. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently indicated it is issuing policy guidance expanding the conscientious objector provision exempting new ... (more)
