Planned Parenthood Loses Head. Cecile Richards has quiescent as boss of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest termination provider. The classification has prolonged been a aim of pro-life activism, but the inspection increasing in 2015, when David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress expelled clandestine videos restraining the classification to the fetal hankie industry. The FBI is now investigating. (You can review and listen to my 2015 talk with Daleiden here.) In a statement, Penny Nance, the boss of Concerned Women for America, said, “Under the caring of Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood has grown to pull one agenda—abortion above all else—while throwing aside any inkling of tangible medical care. If Planned Parenthood is critical about station up for the women they explain to represent, they will sinecure someone who understands medicine and understands the contribution that termination does not help women but only inflicts mistreat and destruction.”
Americans Want Abortion Restrictions. A check expelled in Jan by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion and the Knights of Columbus found 76 percent of Americans, including 60 percent of those self-identifying as “pro-choice,” support at slightest some termination restrictions. About 60 percent conflict using taxation dollars to compensate for abortion, including the infancy of independents and 43 percent of Democrats. It also found 56 percent of Americans trust termination is implicitly wrong, and 52 percent trust that having an termination does some-more mistreat than good in a woman’s life, in the prolonged run.
Senators Now on Record. On Monday the Senate unsuccessful to pass a check that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The procedural opinion fell significantly brief of the 60 votes indispensable to allege the bill. However, the check did put on record a series of pro-abort Democrats who must run for re-election in pro-life states. The Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, immediately expelled a matter targeting “vulnerable Democrats who voted against the legislation include: Sens. Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Claire McCaskill (Missouri), Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota), and Jon Tester (Montana).” Mallory Quigley, communications executive of the SBA List, said, “As the polling remarkable next creates clear, their votes against this compassionate, accord legislation put these Senators dramatically out of step with their voters and the pro-life American majority.”
Shifting Pendulum? A new study expelled by the pro-gay organisation GLAAD found a “significant decrease in altogether comfort and acceptance of LGBTQ people.” According to Yahoo News, “This marks the first time in this sold study’s four-year story that the numbers have declined.” Harris Insights and Analytics conducted the online poll. It found that in “every singular situation” the acceptance fell from the prior year.
