New! Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, and the FACTS

Judie Brown
Sanger shaped the eugenics movement in America and beyond in the 1930s and 1940s. Her views and those of her peers in the movement contributed to compulsory sterilization laws in 30 U.S. states that resulted in more than 60,000 sterilizations of vulnerable people, including people she considered "feeble-minded," "idiots," and "morons." She even presented at a Ku Klux Klan rally. The facts about the location of specific Planned Parenthood offices/clinics tell a disturbing story.

We can make a difference and we can turn our nation around only when we stop doing what we think the Supreme Court expects and begin doing what we know God expects.

Zombie charities push population control

The Demand-to-die is already here

Ron Panzer
The tortuous lengths so-called "ethicists" go to in order to justify their nefarious agenda is never-ending. Though they are true believers in their work (and tell us how "altruistic" their motives are) they sometimes inadvertently admit that they have lied in the past, will lie in the present and future, if it means advancing their cause, and consider mere "people" beneath them, the "givers and takers" of life. These are the judge-jury-executioner types who truly do hold the keys to your life or death, and the life or death of your children or parents and friends.

'We are here!' How one small voice can make a tremendous impact!

Kurt Kondrich
Today there is a tiny hidden world of beautiful human beings with Down syndrome hidden in the womb who are being targeted and eliminated because a lost, misguided culture has determined that these people are defective and do not need to be here.
