Last week our nation celebrated the 240th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The founders who fought for and won our individual freedoms knew that each successive generation would have to work to preserve and protect the “sacred fire of liberty” from the encroachments of the state.

Military chaplains often tell me they are concerned that acting consistent with the tenets of their faith – which is the very nature of their position – could mean losing their job. The Little Sisters of the Poor, a religious non-profit organization that cares for the vulnerable elderly poor, faces pressure to violate their faith because the government required certain services in their health insurance plans.
One of the nation’s most notorious late-term abortionists, LeRoy Carhart, has received a subpoena to appear before a special Congressional panel to answer questions about whether he illegally sold aborted babies’ body parts and let babies born alive die after botched abortions.
Recent undercover videos by Center for Medical Progress have exposed in numbing candor several high level Planned Parenthood leaders gleefully talking about procuring children’s organs for a price, all while altering gruesome dismemberment procedures to preserve “intact” livers, hearts and lungs from freshly killed babies. Watch the videos yourself at centerformedicalprogress.org.
There will be another empty seat in the gallery during Obama’s last State of the Union address. I have reserved it to commemorate the lives of more than 55 million aborted babies, ‘the chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world.’
Ben Carson’s presidential campaign has been notable for the public’s view of him as perhaps the most honest human being in a very large field. How disappointing then that Mr. Carson recently said one of the most intellectually dishonest things any presidential candidate has uttered on the road to the White House.
According to Huckabee: “There’s no excuse for killing other people, whether it’s inside … Planned Parenthood clinics, where many millions of babies die, or whether it’s people attacking Planned Parenthood.”
Mr./Madam President, I rise today to support, and to request the Senate’s approval of, Senate Resolution 312 – a resolution that would designate this week in November “National Pregnancy Center Week,” in honor of the life-saving and life-affirming work of America’s community-supported pregnancy centers.
Sen. Rand Paul Leads 34 Senators Requesting HHS Inspector General Investigation Of Planned Parenthood Tissue PracticesOct 7th, 2015 | By fyork
The Planned Parenthood videos recently released by the Center for Medical Progress raise serious concerns about potential violations of federal law prohibiting the transfer of fetal tissue for valuable consideration. The videos not only raise questions about Planned Parenthood’s compliance with applicable laws and regulations, but also highlight potentially significant problems with HHS’s oversight of practices in this market in general.
Cecile Richards contradicted her own organization’s record when she implied support for babies’ who survive botched abortions. She misled when she dismissed the overwhelming evidence against Planned Parenthood as ‘discredited, doctored videos’ and she flat out lied when she claimed to have never said Planned Parenthood provided mammograms. What’s more, she claimed that abortion – a procedure that destroys one life and damages another – is a legitimate health care service. As a nurse for more than 40 years, I will challenge that assertion every single time.
