In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization. According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687. Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding, according to a Susan B. Anthony List analysis of the report, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. The amount is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual
Comments: Just shy of a million babies killed over the past 3 years, "government" funding at all-time highs... like a broken record; where exactly are the Republicans? Just amazing.
Wow...we have an epidemic of rape and incest going on in this country...and you´d think by 2013 doctors would be able to save the lives of more pregnant women along with the child.
Those are the reasons we MUST protect abortion "rights"...aren´t they?
No one would have abortions for selfish reasons would they? I mean, if they REALLY didn´t want children they would have irresponsible sex...or...they would avail themselves of one of the myriad methods of preventing conception from taking place.
Do not hit return a dozen times and waste page space. Staff has closed space.
334,000 abortions. That is a lot of "legal but rare procedures." (to quote Bill Clinton) I really didn´t think there was that much rape and incest. After all, isn´t that why the PP supporters say we must allow abortions? /s Disgusting, depressing, sad.
When I was young, my gyn switched over, without telling me, to be an abortion doctor. While I was in his office, the first and last time after switching, he explained to me that his clients (he operated in the wealthy part of back bay boston)were usually well-of young women who could not be bothered taking contraceptives and were repeat clients. And I have spoken to two women in their 60´s who had abortions after failed love affairs. Those two women say they knew they were killing a person. I don´t know why it is so important to liberals, men and women, to kill babies.
" if we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?" "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion" "Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three quarters of its victims are women: Half the babies and all the mothers." ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta ~ personally I just fear the punishment ...
Maybe women are beginning to see that the present state of affairs in this country is not one into which they want to bring children. That doesn´t make abortion right -- the women should be using birth control and so should the men, but any way you look at this, it´s a holocaust.
The silence of “Christians” and “conservatives” is as deafening as the voices of the millions of innocent aborted babies. Without true repentance this nation will not escape judgment for allowing such atrocities to occur: over 3,500 abortions each day in the U.S. ...maybe we’re being judged already.
"I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever." Jefferson. We not only allow this slaughter of the innocents but we subsidize it. Oh Lord, what will befall us?
The department of health actually did a survey of pregnancies and disposition by age and ethnicity in the greater NY City. I suspect it was intended to document that high prenatal mortality was the decision of the mother and not poor medical care. The Hispanic community led in pregnancy rate and the percentage of babies brought to term. The non-Hispanic black community had the second highest pregnancy rate and by far the highest percentage termination rate (around 40%). This rate did not begin to go down until you got to women over 26. Margaret Sanger must be dancing in her grave.

PP is evil. Once a person, a culture, a government gives itself the power to murder any innocent life, Evil has won. The Lord promises forgiveness of sin to anyone who will repent and accept Him in Jesus´ name. Please, anyone who had created an aborted baby, seek forgiveness for the sin of murder.
I bring this subject up often, at church, just out in the general public and am shocked at how it doesn´t raise a few hackers. Society, as a whole, has harden their hearts to the cries of the helpless.
I hope Martha McCallum of FOX reads this article. During a report last year Ms. McCallum emphasized not once, but twice, that Planned Parenthood doesn´t perform abortions, it only counsels/refers abortion seekers to private providers. She was aided and abetted in this erroneous declaration by Judge Napolitano, who sat idly by and didn´t bother to correct her. Fair and balanced, you bet.
Let´s think about how many people are involved in one abortion: - the mother; - the dead baby; - the father of the dead baby; - the parents who paid for the murder; - the "friend" who drove the mother to kill her baby; - the grandparents of the dead baby; - the doctor who killed the baby; - the nurses and other attending who participated in the killing; - the administrative staff who scheduled the killing and follow up appointments; - the waste company who collected the remains of the baby...
and multiply that by millions. So, we are left with countless people who live their lives day after day defending this position and supporting their "right" to kill. To admit their sin would be too devastating so they dig their heels in and we´re left with the results: degradation of women, the family and culture. God have mercy on us.
#6 is spot-on...the PP number is about 25% of the abortions performed in the US each year...some data point to 600,000 Black babies being flushed down the toilet each year and that´s genocide...55million total US abortions since 1973 sounds like WWIII to me with all those killed being babies...
Yes it is, #40. But it´s coming for all of us. It´s coming for the abortionists. It´s coming for those that enabled it. And it´s coming for those of us that did nothing to stop it. Judgement is coming for all of us.
Judgement is here. Just remind all of those carelessly active lib women that they are most likely murdering there own DAUGHTERS. Then point out someone you know who is elderly, with no family to comfort or help them, in old age. Point out how lack of children & grandchildren is inconvenient when you can´t live on your own anymore. Explain that you can have inconvenience now or later - you are just choosing the timing. Then explain all of the ways that abortion has actually liberated MEN.

It is devastating that they use this like a banner of pride....I pray for you and I weep for the children we will never know..God Help Us.
Americans have callously sat by and allowed the murder of 55 million human beings. By not effectively counter acting this atrocity we have all SINNED in the eyes of the Creator of the Universe. God has withdrawn His hand from this country and given us leadership that is bound and determined to run this country into the ground. Are we actually dumb enough to believe there is no connection? Prayers to restore this country to its former greatness are useless! America needs to repent and ask for forgiveness!
Every hour, 24/7/365 a kindergarten class of 20 American children are murdered by this atrocity euphemistically called ´Abortion´.
After it has been outlawed forever in all 57 states, we will marvel that this was ever allowed to take place. It will appear in history books alongside Slavery as a national shame to be expiated for-forever.
By my calculations, using 2012 census data, one out of every 20 women of child bearing age (14-45) had an abortion last year. I am suprised that the rape and incest epidemic in this country and the poor overall health of the female population hasn´t drawn national attention!
Thank you, democrat socialist party, for getting God out of our schools and the public square and teaching our children that morals are "relative"...
I´ve heard it explained (from my pastor) that half of my generation (I´m 28) is "missing". Half of my generation was legally murdered before they could draw breath. How can it be "alright" for a woman and doctor to kill a child if it hasn´t been born, but if someone was to shoot the mother in the stomach, killing both, it´s a double murder? I feel like I´m in an alternate reality.
With a Marxist POTUS who wholeheartedly supports unlimited abortion, to include partial birth abortion and infanticide, sitting in The White House the mass murderers at Planned Parenthood are hitting on all eight cylinders!
I told my kids in a CCD class (sixth graders) that their birthday is special, that their birth was a rite of survival b/c their parents loved them. I´ll never forget their faces - kids understand, why can´t politicians?
We have yet to figure out cause and effect. We have so many fewer workers paying into Social Security - why? They were never born.
Pray for mercy - justice is gone.

Woman don´t realize how that infant inside of the womb fights for it life. The Baby moves constantly away from the danger until it can fight no more...The child feels pain and screams as it is ripped apart and the deed is done. The mother can go and fornicate again and again...I do pray for these women, I pray that God softens there hearts and through God they will open there eyes and realize ,It was there Child who was killed.
I saw something a couple of years ago that this country currently has problems financing SS and other programs due to the fact that at least 30 million taxpayers were not available because they had been aborted. Think about that fact for a while. Libs traded financial security for our government in order to kill unborn babies.
1 million babies in just 3 years... every woman should weep and every man should be filled with righteous anger. They are killing our future, they are stealing from us to do it, and they are proud of it all.
Those posting above about how we all have sinned in not stopping this mass murder, please tell us what we are supposed to do about it?
I pray for an end to abortion every time I pray. I support and vote for only pro-life politicians. I send money to organizations like National Right to Life and the Catholic Church ( the biggest pro-life organization on the planet ). I march as often as possible in the March for Life in DC. I have taken part in prayer vigils near abortion clinics and on street corners. I have adopted a child who could have wound up as ´medical waste´ if her birth mother had made a different ´choice´.
#34 is exactly RIGHT. God will indeed sort this out, and He is NOT HAPPY. Proverbs 6:16-10 says, "There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family." (emphasis mine)
Folks, we can forget about Hitler. He was a piker...we´re now in Stalin/ChiCom territory. The people of this country allowed this to take place, and the people of this country re-elected a man whose party booed the re-introduction of God and Israel to their party platform (either by active vote or by staying home and not voting for the other person). God is NOT happy.
And I´ll go a step further - the church (at large) has blood on its hands as well. Yes, pastors and priests may say they´re against such, but in EVERY survey year after year, the church looks just like the world in EVERY category. Yes, there are people like #60 and those of us who have actively fought for morality and decency, and who have volunteered at and given money to crisis pregnancy centers, and who have worked in every manner possible to stand against this evil and persuade others to do the same. But we are few and far between, even in the church. God is NOT happy.
I hope quincy2 didn´t choose his pseudonym to commemorate Jack Klugman´s character on the "Quincy, ME" TV show. I´ve been watching the NetFlix collection of those shows from the 70s and 80s, and I´ve seen two episodes in which abortions were plot elements. Quincy had no interest in the aborted babies, but he was concerned about the dead "mothers" whose bodies reached his autopsy table.
One "mother" died because the abortionist was drinking before performing the abortion. Quincy knew and respected the abortionist "doctor", so he persuaded the fellow to join an Alcoholics Anonymous group of drinking doctors.
The other "mother" died after the abortionist dropped her off at an ER. The primary ER doctor was suspected of having mishandled her treatment, but she´d actually been treated by another doctor who wasn´t certified to work in an ER. Quincy spent a lot of the show agitating for better trained and certified ER doctors.
The West has succumbed to the curse of materialism and valued individual creature comfort over the survival of civilization. The West was not defeated by military prowess but by civilizational suicide.
I do not agree with abortions at will; however, lately I´ve been thinking. If they all had those babies, there would be massive spikes in the numbers of welfare babies and more $$ going out to baby mamas.
It´s sickening no matter how you look at it.
What is worse? Abortion or rape of the country? And of all those babies that would be born, what would they be born into? A life of drugs, stealing, and jail? What quality of life is that for them?
We are horrifed that the citizens of Germany allowed the holocaust to continue. Frequently we are reminded of the moral cancer that was slavery. Yet here we are, going about our business, ignoring the murder of hundreds of thousands of babies in our own country. A terrible milestone - 40 years - will be reached this month. Thousands will travel to Washington to march and,as always, the media won´t report it.
Dear God in heaven have mercy on us. This is devastating and horrific.. all those unique personalities lost to us.... I post a lot of pro-life articles on FB & twitter,too, sign petitions, support www.youhavealternatives.org... And pray. At the very least I know for a fact they´re all alive and in heaven as we speak. Every single one of them, praise God.
I recently learned two young women I know had abortions. They are both emotionally devastated.
Mother Teresa is right, #22, it kills the baby and destroys the conscious of the mother. My prayers are with them. They have been indoctrinated to believe there is nothing wrong with abortion. After they´ve had it, they realize differently.
I look at my children and am grateful I never had to make that choice. As a young woman, I am sorry to say, I probably would have made the wrong choice.
In 2011, officials in Honolulu, Hawaii began construction on a controversial 20-mile rail project partly because of almost $1.8 billion in federal subsidies to President Barack Obama´s home state. The project´s total cost estimate stands at $5.3 billion, but if other similar projects are any indication, the final price tag will increase dramatically before anyone even gets to buy a ticket. What´s playing out in the Aloha State is happening all over the country. “This rail project is our bridge to nowhere”, says University of Hawaii law professor Randall Roth. “We are convinced that it will be billions of dollars
House of Raeford officially closed its turkey slaughterhouse in Raeford on Thursday, putting 950 people out of work. The company first announced plans to shutter the facility in March. It’s also closing its turkey hatchery in Rose Hill and ending its relationship with about 140 turkey farmers in Eastern North Carolina. House of Raeford was by far the largest employer in Raeford, a city of fewer than 5,000 people just south of Fort Bragg. (Snip) House of Raeford said in March that elevated corn prices, as well as falling turkey prices and flat turkey consumption in recent years, have made
Amid the backlash against Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn for referring to minority students as “dark ones,” the Michigan Department of Education acknowledged Thursday that it sent inspectors to study the school, including its student diversity. The department reversed after earlier saying no such review had taken place. On Wednesday, Arnn told lawmakers during testimony against the state’s adoption of Common Core standards in reading, writing and math that his college had been approached by the Department of Education because it “didn’t have enough dark ones,” referring to minority students. While Arnn’s comments drew criticism from many lawmakers and alumni,
Philadelphia — New Jersey´s law requiring residents show a "justifiable need" to get a permit to carry a handgun in public was upheld by a federal appeals court. A mandate that residents demonstrate an "urgent necessity for self-protection" to get authorization to publicly carry a handgun doesn´t run afoul of U.S. constitutional protections of the right to bear firearms, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled Wednesday. "The justifiable need standard is a longstanding regulation that enjoys presumptive constitutionality," the panel wrote. The ruling comes more than four months after the U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed
Forced to march in a human chain and lined up with hands behind their heads, this is how to round up illegal immigrants Russian-style. Moscow police launched a no-nonsense crackdown on suspected illegals working on stalls in a market. Officers prodded suspects with batons and pinned them against police vans as searches were carried out. (Snip) Dmitry Demidenko, of the Russian Federal Migration Service, said: ‘Some 11,193,289 immigrants are living in Russia, and 3.76million of them live here illegally. ‘We are searching for them and expel from the country as we find them.
Trenton — An HMO that earned $1.7 billion from 2009 to 2010 by providing Medicaid coverage to 350,000 low-income and disabled New Jerseyans didn´t try very hard to detect fraudulent billing -- identifying only $1.6 million, or one-tenth of one percent in improper payouts, according to a report the Office of the State Comptroller released today. UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of New Jersey failed to hire enough investigators and train them properly, in violation of the managed care company´s contract with the state, according to the report. "With billions of tax dollars flowing through New Jersey’s Medicaid program, our state relies
Washington—"It was crazy. Beyond our control," says the manager of the King Convenience store in the 1500 block of U Street in Southeast D.C. He says a flash mob of teens stole candy, soda and other items from his store Saturday night. "Bunch of kids, more than 20 or 30, grabbed everything," he says, asking not to be identified. "They grabbed everything and then ran away from the store." An employee ran outside to try and stop some of the teens involved in the flash mob. He was confronted by one of them armed with a stick and is now
Washington - As the military begins to embrace gays and lesbians, one group feels left out: transgender troops. These men and women weren´t even a blip on the nation´s radar until former Navy SEAL Team 6 member Chris Beck revealed in a memoir released last month that he had become Kristin Beck, a woman. It´s unknown how many transgender troops are serving in the U.S. military, largely because they would get kicked out for coming out. About 700,000 Americans in a population of more than 300 million are transsexuals, according to a 2011 study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School
Three NJ Transit crew members were sent to the hospital after they tried to break up a melee on a train filled with passengers returning from a Colombian Independence Day festival, officials said today. The fight, which broke out while the train was entering the Perth Amboy Station on Sunday night, led to seven arrests and a citation, officials said. An NJ Transit engineer and two conductors were punched in the face and body. Here’s what NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said happened: At 8:35 p.m., a large group that attended the Colombian festival in Elizabeth boarded a train
Connecticut police decided against sending a hostage negotiator to the home of the Petit family on the morning they were brutally murdered, it has emerged. Jennifer Hawke-Petit was raped and strangled to death and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, were tied to their beds and died when the house in Cheshire was set alight on July 23, 2007. The girls´ father, Dr. William Petit was beaten and tied up but escaped the flames, living to see Joshua Komisarjevsky and Stephen Hayes be sentenced to death in 2011 for the murders.

Woodbridge – The New Jersey Turnpike Authority collected $992 million in tolls last year, making it the most profitable toll road in the nation, according to the toll industry newsletter “Toll Roads News.” Second was the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which collected $781 million in tolls in 2012. The Garden State Parkway was listed sixth on the list with $402 million in toll revenue collected last year. The analysis did not include bridge and tunnel authorities, such as the Port Authority or New York’s MTA. The Turnpike’s operating expenses were $378 million and the authority had a cash flow of $614 million, according to
Richmond—A Food and Drug Administration review concludes that menthol cigarettes likely pose a greater public health risk than regular cigarettes but does not make a recommendation on whether to limit or ban the minty smokes—one of the few growth sectors of the shrinking cigarette business. (Snip) The FDA evaluation concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that menthol cigarettes are more or less toxic or contribute to more disease risk to smokers than regular cigarettes. However, there is adequate data to suggest that menthol use is likely associated with increased smoking initiation by younger people and that menthol
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement.

The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
