Capitol Hill Brief — The Videos are Real

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

The gut-wrenching videos of Planned Parenthood workers joking callously about the selling of aborted baby parts are real.  I know Big Abortion has spent a lot of money to try to manipulate popular opinion, saying they were “heavily edited,” but they are real.

Here is Holly O’Donnell, who worked as a procurement technician for StemExpress, stationed inside some of the biggest Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in northern California. She’s being interviewed by Dana Lash.

[Audio Clip] Dana Lash: If you could impart one message to viewers who see these videos, what’s the one thing that you want them to walk away with?

 [Audio Clip] Holly O’Donnell: The videos are true, and I wouldn’t be putting myself out and speaking if they weren’t true, and my testimony … the people will decide.

Even the media can’t deny the numbers

By | Blog, North Dakota, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

CWA is committed to fighting for life and will never back down or be intimidated by big-money organizations such as Planned Parenthood.

The fight to shift our hard earned tax dollars (half a billion to be exact!) from Planned Parenthood to Federally Qualified Health Clinics is as much a PR battle as it is a legislative one. Public policy is downstream of public opinion— your voice matters!

Every petition you sign, every phone call you make, every conversation you have, every letter you write, and every Rally you attend, is you influencing change. We saw firsthand the difference you make in North Dakota— the media often ignores our events, but with the crowd that showed up, they simply couldn’t avoid covering the story. You can view some of the news stories about the event here, here, and here.

Remember CWA is simply a voice for you on Capitol Hill. We work to keep you informed on what’s going on and how you can help influence change— but we need YOU to stay engaged and help change the world for Christ’s glory.

Capitol Hill Brief —The Unaccountables

[Audio Clip] Holly O’Donnell: “The harder and the more valuable the tissue, the more money you get. … I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses.”

That’s the voice of Holly O’Donnell who worked as a procurement technician for StemExpress, stationed inside some of the biggest Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in northern California.

Ms. O’Donnell became a whistleblower against the company’s unethical and potentially illegal practices. On her first day on the job she almost passed out, as the remains of an aborted fetus where dissected in front of her.  She testifies the company then sold the parts to research customers across the country.

But the worst part is nobody has been held accountable for this yet!

Capitol Hill Brief — Broken Judicial System

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

We’ve been highlighting this week the horrible case of an illegal immigrant minor that was able to get a U.S. court to force the Trump Administration to facilitate the abortion of her unborn baby.

At the same time this is happening, the courts are still entertaining the preposterous case against the Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden, and Sandra Merritt, the pro-life heroes who exposed Planned Parenthood’s nefarious involvement with the selling of baby body parts, in violation of federal law.

Our judicial system is broken.  It is why we cannot ignore the efforts of President Trump to nominate committed constitutionalists to the courts.  Close to 40 nominees await Senate action, while liberals obstruct the process. We must demand their confirmation.

Capitol Hill Brief — Celebrating Abortion

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

I told you yesterday about the shameful case of an illegal, pregnant minor that got the D.C. Circuit to force the U.S. government to facilitate her abortion under threat of law. To their shame, right after the young woman aborted her unborn child, the ACLU and radical feminists took to social media to celebrate!

Think about that.  It used to be that they pretended abortion was a sort of necessary evil, where a woman had to make some tough choices.  Today, they celebrate with glee, upon the remains of the unborn.

The baby in this case was 15 weeks along. It was a fully formed baby that could already start hearing her mother’s voice.

Friends, we must stand against this!

Capitol Hill Brief — A New Shameful Era

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

I speak to you with a heavy heart today, having learned that a young woman, an illegal immigrant minor, has succeeded in her quest to force the U.S. government to facilitate the abortion of her unborn child.

The Trump Administration tried every way they could to prevent such a dangerous precedent from being set, but the ACLU, as is usually the case, went to court and got the D.C. Circuit to force the Administration to facilitate the abortion.

So, we enter a new shameful era in our nation’s history.  If a minor wants to circumvent parental authority or her country’s laws, she can come to the U.S. illegally to procure an abortion free of charge. Let us pray for our nation.

Capitol Hill Brief — Prayer and Action

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

What was my focus as I spoke to the tens of thousands of women gathered here in Washington, D.C., to pray for our nation?  The sin of abortion.  We repented before the Lord, and we asked for His mercy upon us.  I even led them in a chant for “no more abortion”:

[Audio Clip] Penny Nance: No more abortion! No more abortion! No more abortion!

But in true Concerned Women for America fashion, I also asked them take action, as I want to ask you also to do.  We must call our senators and ask them to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

United in prayer and action, we can truly see an end to the evil of abortion in our lifetime.


Join us on the front lines, fighting for Biblical, constitutional values such as the sanctity of life and religious freedom. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org to give today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

 

Graham-Cassidy Bill: Last Chance for Health Care Reform

By | News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Press Releases, Sanctity of Life, Senate Legislative Updates, Uncategorized | No Comments

Washington, D.C. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) as well as Sens. Dean Heller (R-Nevada) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) have teamed up and introduced a bill that gives power over health care decisions back to the states and the American people. The Graham-Cassidy health care bill is the Senate’s last chance to pass health care reform with a simple majority vote through the reconciliation process in 2017. The Senate has a hard deadline of September 30.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America issued the following statement in response:

“Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee is proud to support the Graham-Cassidy health care bill. It is time to make good on the promise made to the American people to end ObamaCare.

“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for health care. Sens. Graham and Cassidy have provided a bill that gives power back to the states.

“Improving health care means protecting life at all stages, and Graham-Cassidy does just that. This legislation ensures that no funds within the bill will be, or can be, used to subsidize plans that provide abortion coverage &emdash; something every other bill has failed to address. Most importantly, it redirects Medicaid funds away from Planned Parenthood and gives them to federally qualified health centers which provide care for the whole woman.

“All the funds provided through this legislation will go through CHIP (Child Health Insurance Programs) &emdash; a bipartisan effort to ensure underprivileged children are able to receive healthcare. It is time to give Americans real care instead of “insurance” that is not worth the plastic on which it is printed.

“While it may not solve every problem plaguing the American health care and insurance industry, Graham-Cassidy is a vast improvement over the status quo, providing momentum that enables other issues to be addressed.

“The American people have been waiting eight years to be given back their right to make their own health care choices.

“Now is the time to make good on the promise made to the American people.”

Planned Parenthood hooks up with OkCupid. Guess what this cynical partnership is really about?

By | Blog, News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

It’s about time that Planned Parenthood got involved in the dating market. They have already reaped the benefits of profiting off of the sex toy industry, the genitalia-designed candy industry, and, of course, they make boatloads of money every year as the abortion industry’s leading provider. They have been missing out for years by not jumping headfirst into the online dating world.

But that has finally changed. The dating website OkCupid, which has admitted in the past to doing social experiments on their users, has partnered with Planned Parenthood.  Those who want to find a date on the website will have to answer this question: “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?” If they answer in the negative, then a cute pink badge will appear on their profile photo along with the hashtag #IStandWithPP.

The partnership’s goal is to solve the problem of finding true feminists on the dating website. Because only true feminists support the right to end innocent lives in the womb. Whoops! Off-topic.

The meetings that preceded this partnership must have been entertaining. It probably went something like this: groups of young women lamenting over drinks about the lack of feminist men, or women perhaps, on online dating, and someone coming up with the brilliant suggestion to screen dating applicants on their support for the nation’s largest abortion provider. Brilliant.

It’s only sad that this idea hadn’t come sooner, because young women could have avoided the losers online who only wanted to hook up with them, maybe pay for their abortion, and move on to the next young thing.

Because, really, that’s what this partnership is about, finding those men who want to use women for unencumbered sex and walk away, no matter the consequences.

The better and more revealing question for OkCupid would be: “Would you support a woman you get pregnant and step up as a father, taking responsibility for the results of your actions?” Or, since 86 percent of most single Americans say they want to get married, what about, “Are you hoping to find a woman to love, marry and remain faithful to you for your entire life?” Those hashtags could have been way more enticing, like #realmen.

The Bro-Choice movement that began in 2013 −  yes, it’s a real thing − out of a Sarah Silverman idea, who probably loves OkCupid for this new partnership, because now they can figure out which girls have such low expectations and low self-esteem that they will require nothing from them.

Bro-choicer Ben Sherman railed against Texas legislation in 2013 that would ban late-term abortions in the state: “Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by,” (emphasis his).

Oh no! Less casual sex, more responsibility, less late-term abortion; better bring in Planned Parenthood to fix that problem!

Knowing Planned Parenthood, this partnership with OkCupid is probably the first of many relationships for the abortion giant. They could easily help further divide the nation by getting involved in partnerships with cell phone companies (have the abortion giant on speed dial just in case of pregnancy), and crayon companies (“pink” is now called “Planned Parenthood Pink”).

The opportunities to embarrass themselves are endless. As for women who want real men − men who take responsibility for their actions and protect women, instead of selfish (you insert the word) that exploit them − watch out for that pink badge. Those aren’t the men who will cherish women. Women deserve better.

Senate Health Care Fails

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

Washington, D.C. — Early Friday morning, the Senate voted on the Health Care Freedom Act, also known as “Skinny Repeal.” With three Republican defectors, the amendment failed with a vote of 49-51. Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America issued the following statement in response:

“I am deeply disappointed the Senate failed to fulfill its promise to end the crippling, un-Affordable Care Act. Yet, there is a ray of hope regarding the issue of life. Despite a drawn out and intensely debated Senate process on health care, the language to significantly reduce taxpayer funding of abortion was one of the only provisions that was not controversial.

“It was clear, without the language redirecting tax dollars away from abortion providers to Federally Qualified Health Centers, the Senate and House would be short far more votes than could be won by the provision’s removal. That is a win and not a small one either.

“In election after election, Americans have made it glaringly clear they want to be released from the crushing burden of ObamaCare. The status quo on health care is unacceptable. American lives continue to hang in the balance.

“This is a fight for all lives — for the lives of hard working Americans penalized for their inability to afford health insurance, for those who have insurance but don’t have access to doctors their insurance covers, and last but certainly not least, this is a fight for the lives of the unborn.

“The left clamors that government-provided health care is a human right, while simultaneously fighting against the most fundamental right of all — the right to life itself.

“The irony would be comical, if it weren’t so distorted.

“Most of the Senate Republicans won election or reelection promising to end ObamaCare. Only a handful blocked the fulfillment of that promise.

“Hopefully, they find a way to make good on their promise and end taxpayer funding of abortion or they may reap the consequences of failing the good people who sent them to Washington.

“Concerned Women for America is committed to this fight. A bipartisan, majority of Americans oppose their hard-earned tax dollars funding abortions; Congress is catching on.

“We will not stop until life at all stages is protected and the American conscience is freed from the stain of her unwilling funding of the abortion industry.”
