Bozell: Put Margaret Sanger Bust in a 'Deep Hole,' and 'Apologize to the Dirt'

CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) - At a press conference outside the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday, ForAmerica Chairman President Brent Bozell said it would be best to remove the bust of eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, from the National Portrait Gallery and put it in a “far off place,” in a “deep hole,” and then “apologize to the dirt.”

News Shows Censor Planned Parenthood Video, Hype Unborn ‘Baby’ Panda

I think they mean unless the mama panda decides it's not a baby.

NBC and CBS are happily covering the “great news” of a “fetus” and unborn “baby” – but it’s not one of those torn apart in the recent Planned Parenthood videos. In fact, it’s not even human. It’s been one full day, but ABC, NBC and CBS still haven’t covered the latest Planned Parenthood video detailing the cutting open of an aborted baby with scissors – a baby whose heart was still beating, according to a witness. Instead, the morning and evening news shows from NBC and CBS gushed over the pregnancy of the National Zoo’s giant panda, Mei Xiang, beginning with showing an ultrasound of the “fetus.”

His Son Used to be in a Coma and He Used to be Fat

A pretty awesome story:

A Reddit photo of a man running on a treadmill next to a boy standing with the help of a brace has gone viral. “He used to be in a coma, I used to be a fat guy,” the photo caption reads. “My son is recovering from a brain injury. We have a deal now. If he’s standing, I’m running.” The photo, which has received nearly 2.7 million views, features Rick Delashmit and his 12-year-old son, Reece, who can now stand for 90 minutes at a time.

Awesome! Gov. Jindal to Play CMP Vids on Loop for Planned Parenthood Protestors

I've got to admit, this is pretty awesome.

Louisiana governor and GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal will counter pro-Planned Parenthood protests today with a protest of his own -- in the form of a continuous video loop of the seven undercover videos showing illegal abortions and fetal harvesting by Planned Parenthood clinics.

You can be one of over 50 genders on Facebook but I can’t be a monsignor.”

Oy.

Monsignor Charles Pope, a popular blogger and a Catholic priest in Washington, D.C., has been blocked from using Facebook. The social media behemoth says it prefers users to use their “everyday names” so that people know who they’re connecting with, and formal titles can get tagged as inauthentic. “It’s not just me, it’s a lot of people with titles who are having trouble,” Msgr. Pope told CNS News. “It’s people in the military, people in religious life – even Native Americans are getting blocked. They told me I can’t use monsignor, but that’s who I am.” Pope scanned a copy of his driver’s license and sent it to Facebook, hoping that the company will quickly fix the problem.

The Strangest Planned Parenthood Poll in a While

It's really an indictment of the media:

After the release of the seventh CMP Planned Parenthood baby parts video, it seemed to me as if there should have been enough time for this saga to sink into the national consciousness and raise some questions. (At a minimum.) That’s why it was rather surprising when I was flipping through the news and noticed the results of this Reuters/Ipsos poll which claims, in the headline, Americans back federal funds to Planned Parenthood for health services.

My Baby Screams in Restaurants and I Am SO Sorry

This is great. I personally never had any of my children screaming or crying in public but I understand why you bad parents might have experienced something similar to this.

I am sorry. To all you moms out there who can’t go out to eat because your kid screams and ruins your dinner, I am so sorry. Until now, I’ve been incredibly spoiled and I may have even thought it was your fault that your kid was screaming during dinner. (I may have judged you a little.) My first two children–girls–were what we called white tablecloth babies. We could take them to the best upscale restaurant on the Magnificent Mile and they wouldn’t make a peep. They would eat their dinner and play with a toy and everyone would smile at them and compliment me. I thought I was soooooo good at this mothering thing. What a fool I was. My darling son just turned one. This is the one who already got me yelled at on a plane (another first). He has one volume: LOUD. He screams if his food isn’t in front of him quickly enough, when he runs out of zucchini and hot dogs, when he’s thirsty, tired, angry, happy, sticky, uncomfortable, bored, or just having fun. He has one mode of communication: screaming

You worship idols”: haters slam Texas governor over Facebook post about the Virgin Mary

I especially like the one guy who asks if the Gov's Facebook site was hacked.

Further proof that anti-Catholicism is alive and well: Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) got a lesson in religious tolerance over the weekend after posting an image of the Virgin Mary accompanied by praise on his Facebook page, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Christianity on the Rise in Cuba

Pope Francis is on his way.

Christian Today reported earlier this month that Cuba has seen a “Bible boom” over the last few months. In fact, almost 83,000 copies of the Bible entered the country through the International Missions board last month, according to Christian Today. Similarly, The American Bible Society, which started the “Million Bible Mission” last year to spread Bibles across the world, gave about 60,000 Bibles to Cuba in 2014, according to Christian Today. "With a population of 11 million, a literacy rate of nearly 100 percent and an unprecedented growth in Christianity thanks to social, economic and political reforms, many Cubans are seeking guidance and hope found in God's Word," the American Bible Society said in a statement. "As a result of this unprecedented spiritual and cultural shift, demand for Bibles has outpaced supply. In addition, many Cubans cannot afford to import high-quality Bibles." Part of the surge may be because Cuba lifted its Bible ban back in May, according to Charisma News. The ban, which started 50 years ago, kept Bibles from bookshelves and only allowed them in churches, Charisma News reported.

Kid Adventures: “He’s Drinking Ibuprofen Like It’s A Juice Box”

Mary Shay writes:

Before I had kids I thought problems were black and white. Right and wrong. And in most situations I thought I was right. I had my 2 boys (4 years old and 17 months) to myself as Pat was traveling. My little guy fell and cut his hand at the playground so when we got home I cleaned it out. This was my workout for the day: holding him steady through the Triple Lindy he performed to get out of my arms while I ran the washcloth over his small wound. That was BEFORE the neosporin came out. I’ve always imagined that Olympic sprinters’ mothers knew they had winners from an early age. To see my little dude bolt out of the bathroom like the gold medal was on the line made me hopeful for future glories. But today, I was more concerned about infection.

Gutfeld Rips Abortion Apologists: 'Evil Operates Under a Cloud of Euphemism'

This is pretty damning.

On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the latest in the Planned Parenthood scandal. Gutfeld pointed out that scientists are saying that fetal tissue is "essential," pointing to its use in vaccines. He said this actually destroys Planned Parenthood and pro-choice advocates' defense. "You already admit what was killed has value. Or, it could not be wasted - unless you view the unborn as recyclable," Gutfeld said. "In the old days, adults existed to enhance a baby’s survival. Now, adults use babies for their survival. It’s reversed."

Former Planned Parenthood Employee Says Moms Were Pressured Into Donating Baby Parts

Profit.

Between 2001 and 2009 Abby Johnson worked for the Southeast Texas Planned Parenthood Clinic, the same place where the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) filmed the fifth undercover video showing PP selling aborted baby parts. In an interview with the Daily Signal which is unrelated to CMP, Ms Johnson said employees received a bounty for each woman they convinced to allow their baby to be mutilated and sold off in pieces.

I Don't Know If I'm Pro-Choice After Those Planned Parenthood Videos

He doesn't have the guts yet to be pro-life but he's close.

For the last 30 years, I’ve supported abortion rights. This year may be different. The only thing I hate more than talking about abortion is writing about it. It’s no accident that, in 2000 columns over a quarter century, I have never—ever—written about abortion. I’ve avoided the topic like a root canal. But that is getting harder to do with the release of what are now five gruesome, albeit edited, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress depicting doctors and other top officials of Planned Parenthood discussing, and even laughing about, the harvesting of baby organs, as casually as some folks talk about the weather.

Three Reasons for Optimism About the Failed Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood

Michael New writes:

On Monday, a vote in the U.S. Senate to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood received 53 votes — falling seven short of the 60 needed to end the filibuster. This outcome is certainly disappointing to many pro-lifers. But there are at least three reasons for optimism.

Catholic Colleges Collude with Planned Parenthood

Anne Hendershott writes:

Despite the Catholic Church’s unambiguous teaching on the “intrinsic evil” of abortion, Catholic Colleges throughout the country continue to promote student internships and volunteer opportunities at Planned Parenthood—the country’s largest abortion provider. In fact, at the same time Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap, Chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), issued a statement decrying the “throwaway culture” that has “enslaved the hearts and minds of so many” through abortion and the selling of “fetal tissue” at Planned Parenthood, students enrolled in the sociology internship course at Boston College, one of Boston’s premier Catholic colleges, were encouraged to apply for internships at the Planned Parenthood League of Greater Boston (p. 18).

Did Planned Parenthood Just Get Caught Lying to Gov. Bobby Jindal?

It would appear so.

When the Center for Medical Progress first began releasing videos of its undercover investigations into Planned Parenthood, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal ordered an investigation into its practices in the state. After a query to the regional Planned Parenthood affiliate, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, its president, Melaney Linton, sent a reply to Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals denying any connection to organ harvesting or transfers. PPGC, Linton insisted, had no role in abortions or in brokering tissue:

Notre Dame's Carter Snead: Defund Planned Parenthood Now

"No minimally decent society can support an organization whose business is killing and harvesting body parts for money."

Planned Parenthood is in full damage control mode. It is working on impugning the credibility of pro-life undercover investigators from the Center for Medical Progress who just today released another video on the abortion provider's barbaric practices. It is also defending the technical legality of its practice of harvesting organs for a fee during abortions, deploying its allies in the media and the White House, and seeking desperately to restore its carefully constructed and ferociously defended image as an organization primarily focused on women's health, and only secondarily involved in providing abortions.

Why Pro-Lifers Should be Concerned About Medicaid Expansion

Michael New writes:

Last Thursday Alaska Governor Bill Walker announced that he would use his executive authority to expand Alaska’s state Medicaid program under the federal Affordable Care Act. Walker’s proposal would extend Medicaid eligibility to all Alaskans earning less than 133 percent of the poverty line. Walker reported that he sent a letter to the Alaska legislature’s Budget and Audit Committee, giving legislators the required 45-day notice of his plan. The committee can make recommendations, but Walker said he has legal authority to move forward without the legislature’s approval.

Sherry on Planned Parenthood Vid: A Call to Others

Yes.

There's a new Planned Parenthood video, even more telling than the last. But I posted my piece on Saturday (a low traffic day normally) and in light of this new expose, it's even more important that these people receive our earnest prayers. Dr. Mary Gatter, Planned Parenthood Federation of America's Medical Directors' Council President wants a Lamborghini. All I can think is, "But for Wales." So I'm relinking to my Saturday piece, Prayers and Fasting in hopes of getting more people to publicly adopt a specific abortionist they will pray and fast for over the course of the next year. It is not shocking that people sell other people for money, or parts for money. We do this as a culture without thinking about it. We sell human eggs, we sell sperm. We sell wombs. We sell porn (selling the outside while destroying the inside). What we don't do is sell pieces...of people. Except here, we do. Why? Because they've convinced themselves, these children are not people.

The First Modern Genocide Started on Bastille Day

The French Revolution launched the first modern genocide, aimed at Christians. John Zmirak reports:

Tuesday, July 14 probably passes without much fanfare in your home, but the date, Bastille Day, marks the beginning of the greatest organized persecution of Christians since the Emperor Diocletian. This day, the beginning of the French Revolution, also planted the seeds for the murderous ideologies of socialism and nationalism that would poison the next two centuries, murdering millions of believers and other innocent civilians. Between them, those two political movements racked up quite a body count: In Death By Government, scholar R. J. Rummel pointed out that during the first 88 years of this century, almost 170,000,000 men, women and children have been shot, beaten, tortured, knifed, burned, starved, frozen, crushed, or worked to death; or buried alive, drowned, hung, bombed, or killed in any other of the myriad ways governments have inflicted death on unarmed, helpless citizens or foreigners. But the first such modern genocide in the West took place in France, beginning in 1793.
