In the wake of the series of sickening undercover videos exposing the baby body parts scandal, the media has responded predictably. They warn that stopping or defunding Planned Parenthood will deprive poor women of needed health services. How could we be so heartless?
Let’s have a reality check.
In a stunning move, Planned Parenthood announced that it will no longer accept reimbursements for baby parts donated to research.
Given the massive media coverage of the shocking videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, which brought this scandal to light, is the timing of the announcement a surprise?
Trinity Health Corporation owns eighty-six hospitals and abides by the Catholic bishops’ Ethical Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. As such, they are prohibited from terminating pregnancies.
They are being sued by the Michigan American Civil Liberties Union, who claims the practice violated the 1986 Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act on at least five occasions. The attorneys argue that Catholic bishops are not medical professionals and have no place dictating how doctors practice medicine.
Christian values and views are once again overridden in California.
A new law, the Reproductive FACT Act, requires all licensed pregnancy centers to inform everyone who visits their centers that they can get low-cost or free abortions!
