Obama Backs Planned Parenthood, Once Again
Last week in Memphis, Tennessee, pro-abortion Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) announced that the Obama administration has awarded $395,000 in federal funds to Planned Parenthood. The grant defies the state’s previous resolve to defund the abortion provider and preexisting Tennessee laws aimed at preventing government funding of abortion.
In 2011, Tennessee governor Bill Haslam encouraged local public health departments in Memphis to accept all available Title X funds in order to ultimately take funding away from Planned Parenthood facilities and redirect it toward non-abortion-providing health facilities. However, the Obama administration’s recent gift restored the flow of these funds to the abortion provider, ignoring the desire of many Tennesseans.
Thomas Jefferson once stated, “The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object”. President Obama’s action to federally fund an organization that is opposed by the people undermines the purpose of our federal government: to protect the Life, liberty and freedom to pursue happiness of all Americans.
Undercover videos and investigations have exposed Planned Parenthood’s involvement in alleged human sex trafficking, as well as their turning a blind eye to sex-selection abortions in their clinics. As President Obama and his administration continues to bypass the will of the people in order to back Planned Parenthood, one of his largest supporters, the need to elect a pro-life candidate this November could not be more evident.Read More

Supreme Court's Obamacare Decision
The pro-life movement now has its work cut out. The Supreme Court’s decision allows the Obama administration to implement a law that contains the largest expansion of taxpayer funding for abortion on-demand since Roe v. Wade.
If Obamacare is fully implemented, it means that:
With Obamacare upheld by the Supreme Court, it is now up to the Congress to pass laws, and the people to elect pro-life legislators, in order to defend unborn children and American taxpayers from this massive expansion of abortion funding. In his opinion, Chief Justice Roberts explicitly states that the question of whether Obamacare is “sound policy” that should be implemented is now up to the legislature and the voters. We must pass legislation that protects innocent human life, and we must elect candidates to office this November who will fight for unborn children. It is critical that a pro-life majority is elected to the Senate, the pro-life majority in the House is maintained, and that President Obama, the most pro-abortion president in our nation’s history, is replaced by dedicated pro-life candidate Governor Mitt Romney.
Although the Supreme Court’s decision is certainly disappointing, it should not be viewed as a setback. Rather, it shows the urgent need to pass laws, such as the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3) and the Protect Life Act (H.R. 358), that protect innocent unborn children and taxpayers, and is an opportunity to elect a pro-life House, pro-life Senate, and pro-life White House in November.Read More

Senator Kelly Ayotte Stands Up For Life
Last Friday morning at the National Right to Life convention, pro-life rock star New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte spoke out in defense of unborn children and the need to defeat President Obama this fall.
She stated, “How we treat the weakest among us is truly a reflection on who we are as a nation and President Obama’s record shocks the conscious when it comes to protecting life and unfortunately on many other issues as well.”
Sen. Ayotte stressed the importance of the upcoming election, warning that “life is on the line.” She advocated on the behalf of the pro-life convictions of Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney. A possible running mate, and currently the only pro-life woman Senator, Ayotte referred to Romney as a “fighter” when it comes to standing up for Life and family values.
She encouraged Americans she would work as hard as she could to fight for America’s future, claiming the Supreme Court Healthcare decision was evidence enough of the need to replace President Barack Obama so that we can ensure an American culture of Life.
Let’s hear it for Sen. Ayotte for defending Life! Check out the video below:Read More
