David Daleiden Takes His Case
to the Supreme Court

Ever since Center for Medical Progress' founder David Daleiden released undercover videos allegedly exposing Planned Parenthood selling of baby body parts, he has been fighting for his freedom of speech. Now he is taking that fight all the way to the Supreme Court.

Celebrity Fundraisers Ignore
the Grisly Business of Planned Parenthood

By Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director

I was reading a magazine spotlighting celebrities recently when I noticed a paragraph that was supposed to highlight acts of kindness.

The “act of kindness” was fundraising by an actress on behalf of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion operation, which commits more than 320,000 abortions annually.

The blurb made no mention of abortion, focusing entirely on “health care.” It also failed to note that breast cancer screenings are actually on the decline at Planned Parenthood facilities, even as abortion totals increase.

A few days later, a friend told me she had been watching the ABC program “Family Feud,” where a “family” of female comics was playing to raise money for Planned Parenthood. It is certainly ironic that a game show named for families was promoting an organization that eliminates the children so critical to family life.

The fact that Tinseltown stars support the abortion giant Planned Parenthood is nothing new, but the pervasiveness of it, in all different forms of media, is startling. It is all the more disturbing given Congressional investigations into the alleged sale of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood affiliates.

Also, this Planned Parenthood-palooza comes after the release of shocking undercover videotapes showing the organization’s high-ranking officials blithely discussing the harvesting of baby body parts while sipping wine and chomping salad.

But celebrity fundraising for Planned Parenthood brings up a larger point: why is taxpayer funding of the abortion operation needed, given all the charity dollars it is generating? Why should a single mother’s hard-earned paycheck bankroll an organization supported by a millionaires’ club of entertainers?

The lion’s share of Planned Parenthood’s clinic income comes from abortionâ€"the taking of an innocent child’s life. That is not an act of kindness, but an act of cruelty against both mother and child.

The “work” that earns Planned Parenthood the most money is not the stuff of fun and games. It is a bloody business which thrives on secrecy and deception. It is not something to be celebrated, but to be mourned.

The November election showed that a large segment of the American population is tired of political business as usual. For many, that means an end to taxpayer subsidies to a business built on abortion.

The stars are actually aligning against continued government promotion of Planned Parenthood. It is unfortunate that many in the media constellation are ignoring the message.
