God delivers a message to the Colorado State Capital

Ted Harvey is a Republican representative in the Colorado House of Representatives. He is also pro-life. Though, many in society are trying to quieten Christians in the public square, Jesus told His disciples not to worry when their adversaries were attacking because the Holy Spirit would give them the words and wisdom to impact society: 14 So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; 15 for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. (Luke 21:14-15 NASV) I believe this promise was on full display in the Colorado legislature in early May. In an article posted on Faith it, Ted shares a remarkable story of God providing him a message for the Colorado State Capital. Just before the May 7th weekend, the House Majority Leader, a Democrat, announced the following Monday, she would sponsor a resolution honoring the 90th anniversary of Denver’s abortion giant, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. Horrified by this, Harvey left for the weekend. That weekend Ted remembered …

Planned Parenthood director discusses providing intact baby cadavers

In its fifth undercover video, produced by Center for Medical Progress (CMP), recording conversations with officials at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) suggests the organization may be providing intact baby bodies for scientific research. In the videos, CMP uses actors pretending to be representatives of a biologic company who approach officials from different branches of PP about purchasing body parts of aborted babies. Be warned this recent video is probably the most disturbing released so far. Towards the end of the video, the group is in a laboratory picking through body parts of 20-week old baby ripped apart by its abortion — you can see full arms. Some medical researchers believe that babies as young as 20 weeks (perhaps even younger) can feel pain. The fifth video features negotiations with Melissa Farrell. She serves as a research director for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. In this video the conversation takes a disturbing turn. Instead of providing body parts, the discussion turns to providing fully intact baby cadavers. Farrell says: “If we alter our process, and we are …

“Another Boy”: Fourth video released exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of baby organs

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) just released its fourth undercover recording of negotiations with staff of Planned Parenthood. CMP uses actors who pretend they are buyers for a human biologic company interested in purchasing harvested organs of aborted babies. Much of the recent video centers around conversations with Savita Ginde, who serves as Vice President and Medical director at the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountain (PPRM) based in Denver, Colorado. According to Center for Medical Progress, PPRM does about 10,000 abortions a year. Ginde says in the video they need to frame the possible contract as research instead of business to avoid contravening federal laws that prohibit the sale of body parts for profit. Ginde says: “Putting it under research gives us a little bit of a, a little sort of overhang over the whole thing.” She hints that there is the potential for problems: “If you have someone in a really anti-state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.” When CMP’s undercover teams asks for …

Third video alledgely exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvest and sale of baby parts the most disturbing so far

Over the past couple weeks, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released videos of their undercover sting operation involving members of Planned Parenthood (PP) on the sale of harvested body parts from aborted babies. In the previous videos, CMP members pretended to be interested parties interested in buying harvested organs. Be warned this third video, perhaps the most disturbing so far, allegedly shows the insides of Planned Parenthood body parts procurement room where harvested organs are displayed. In this video, CMP primarily interviews Holly O’Donnell who claims she worked as a “procurement tech” for Stem Express LCC at a Planned Parenthood facility for six months. Holly not only helped harvest body parts but worked with PP to process them. O’Donnell alleges: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure that we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.” She adds that certain parts such as brains and heart were …

How much of your tax dollars goes to fund Planned Parenthood?

With a release of a second video showing an executive with Planned Parenthood (PP) haggling over the price of body parts harvested during abortions, many are wondering what really goes on behind the closed doors of the abortion giant. This was the second undercover video released by Center for Medical Progress (CMP) alleging PP is harvesting and selling baby organs. In the most recent video, Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter eventually settles on a price of $100 for complete organs. During the negotiations, Gatter jokes, “I want a Lamborghini.” She even adds, similar to the first video, that PP will adjust the abortion procedure so not to crush the organs. Since the sale of body parts is illegal under federal law, Gatter insists that the price just covers its costs. She says in the tape: “We don’t want to be in a position of being accused of selling tissue and stuff like that. On the other hand, there are costs associated with the use of our space, and all that kind of stuff.” But some …

Center for Medical Progress video capture

Undercover video alleges Planned Parenthood harvesting aborted baby body parts to sell

An undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) alleges that Planned Parenthood is selling the body parts of aborted babies. In the sting,  a man and woman posing as potential buyers meet Dr. Deborah Nucatola for lunch to discuss the purchase. Nucatola is senior director at Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Services division. Part of her responsibility includes training abortion doctors and performing the procedure herself. In the interview, Nucatola seems to suggest baby parts are for sale, a practice CMP states is illegal in the United States. Further the Planned Parenthood director seems to imply the abortion giant changes its abortion procedures to increase its chances of successfully harvesting body parts that includes lungs, livers, hearts and even heads, that seem to bring the best price. CMP alleges that Planned Parenthood is using the partial birth abortion method to get these body parts. It is a practice considered illegal in most states. In the video, Nucatola says: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver because we know that, …

Scottish activists pressure government to force sex ed on Christian schools

In its news release, the Scottish Secular Society (SSS) said it strongly opposed the government’s decision to allow Christian parents and faith schools to exempt themselves from the Scotland’s new sex ed program. Called Relationships, Sexual Health and Parent Hood Education, the program is still in its draft form and a provision —  the “conscience clause” — allows parents to exempt their children and schools from participating due to faith. The SSS is demanding the removal of the “conscience clause.” The organization believes the government should compel all parents and students to take part in the program, whether they want to or not. 

Study: When Planned Parenthood shut down, teen pregnancies also went down

Planned Parenthood with its explicit sex education program and abortion facilities concerns  many parents. When Planned Parenthood’s sex ed programs are implemented in schools, the sex talk can start as early as kindergarten and are in full swing by the middle years. Many argue that kids are not emotionally ready to handle these type of explicit discussions. Opponents also suggest the material puts inordinate pressure on teens to have sex, whether they want to or not. Those in favour of Planned Parenthood’s agenda toss these concerns aside saying teens are going to have sex anyway. Well a recent study of statistics produced by the Texas Department of State Health Services for its Vital Statistics Annual Report provides a stunning rebuttal to these claims by Planned Parenthood supporters.
