Live Action launches investigative campaign against Planned Parenthood

The “war on women” is a phrase that is used regularly by Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates to describe the prolife movement. But according to Live Action, Planned Parenthood needs to look no further than their own front doors to find the real war on women. 

This Wednesday, Live Action held a press conference introducing their comprehensive investigative report detailing the past six years of their undercover investigations inside Planned Parenthood. The report titled “Lies, Corruption and Scandal,” was distributed to every member of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The website was also launched concurrently with the distribution.

Live Action’s report highlights institutionalized corruption In Planned Parenthood including the cover-up of statutory rape, acceptance of donations to fund race based abortions, and aiding sex trafficking. Lila Rose, the President of Live Action, called this report an “explosive, shocking and comprehensive view of what our nation has allowed.” 

With the illumination of these atrocities, I think that we can all agree that something must be done.  At a minimum, it is time that all lawmakers, Republicans and Democrats alike, step away from politics and take an objective look at what Planned Parenthood is really doing and if this work merits over half a billion taxpayer dollars each year.  

View the full report here.

TIME Magazine - Saving Preemies

The remarkably pro-life June 2014 TIME cover story, "Saving Preemies," details the incredible advances in medical care that have pushed the limits of viability out of the womb to as young as 22 weeks. 

TIME editor Nancy Gibbs appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe to discuss the article. The panel celebrated these tiny miracles... but did any of them admit these same babies could be aborted if they were still in the womb?

Start of the journey: David Joyce was born at 29 weeks.At 13 days old, he weighed less than 3 lb. (1.4 kg) - Elinor Carucci for TIME

Dedicated caregivers are helping the tiniest babies survive—and thrive

It’s a safe bet that David Joyce knows more than you did when you were his birth age. That’s not hard, since what you knew back then was pretty much nothing at all. You knew warmth, you knew darkness, you knew a sublime, drifting peace. You had been conceived 29 weeks earlier, and if you were like most people, you had 11 weeks to go before you reached your fully formed 40. It was only then that you’d emerge into the storm of stimuli that is the world.

No such luck for David. He was born Jan. 28—well shy of his April 16 due date—in an emergency cesarean section after his mother had begun bleeding heavily. He weighed…

The pro-life House acted to protect babies from abortion beginning at 20 weeks, passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Stand with your SBA List to call on Harry Reid to bring up this life-saving bill for a vote in the Senate!

NYT - With New Bill, Abortion Limits Spread in South

BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana State Legislature on Wednesday passed a bill that could force three of the state’s five abortion clinics to close, echoing rules passed in Alabama, Mississippi and Texas and raising the possibility of drastically reduced access to abortion across a broad stretch of the South.

The new rules passed by Republican legislatures require that doctors performing abortions must have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, a provision likely to shut down many abortion clinics across the region...

A new POLITICO poll released on Monday (May 19), show that 80% of voters in critical election states support pro-life limits on abortion, such as laws to protect women and bans on late abortion. Democrat and Republican voters alike want common-sense legislation and 70% say a candidate's abortion stance is "important" to their vote.

Louisiana, one of SBA List's key 2014 election states, re-emphasized that these critical voters are pro-life and pro-woman. After passing the Louisiana state Senate, HB388 passed the House by an overwhelming margin - 88 to 5.

Democrats and Republicans worked together to introduce, pass, and celebrate this legislation that would ensure doctors who perform abortions have hospital admitting privileges and proper licensing.

This bipartisan effort in Louisiana, and American voters' support for legislation makes perfect sense. Because when it comes to protecting women from injury and babies at 5 months of pregnancy who feel pain - we can all agree.
