In the Press

  • On August 3, 2015, the U.S. Senate concluded a historical vote. For the first time in history, a majority of U.S. Senators voted to defund Planned Parenthood, America’s abortion giant. The final vote was a successful 53 to 46, yet due to the Democrats’ filibuster, the vote fell short of the 60 votes needed to pass.
     
    While we Americans who are concerned about the rife abuses and culture of inhumane death at Planned Parenthood are winning the battle, there is a large force standing in the way: the abortion lobby.
     
    Detailed research proves that the abortion lobby pads the pockets of lawmakers. In turn, these lawmakers are willing to stand on the Senate floor, blatantly spewing out the very same lies Planned Parenthood tells the public – all to prevent an abusive organisation from being defunded.
  • Northern Ireland's refusal to allow same-sex 'marriage' is facing another legal challenge - on the grounds that it infringes religious freedom.

  • Gunmen fired on police outside an Istanbul palace and a bomb killed eight soldiers in the southeast on Wednesday, heightening a sense of crisis as Turkey's leaders struggled to form a new government.

  • Scientists working in a top secret defence laboratory and a female MP are among hundreds of public servants whose personal details have been published online as alleged users of an adultery website in a “serious breach” of government security.

  • In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.
     
    Holly O'Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
  • An exhibition of cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed in London has been cancelled after its organiser, a former Ukip candidate who runs Sharia Watch UK, decided it was too dangerous.
     
    The exhibition had been due to be addressed by Geert Wilders, the far-right Dutch politician who has previously described Mohamed as “the devil” and claimed the Koran is a “fascist book” that should be banned.
     
    Depicting images of the Prophet is insulting to many Muslims and this has been used as a justification for violence by extreme Islamists in the past.
  • Children in England are unhappier at school than their peers in almost every other country included in a new international survey, with widespread bullying causing huge damage to their wellbeing.

  • Children as young as seven should have compulsory sex and relationship education, Yvette Cooper will say today as she pledges to get Labour “championing women’s equality again”.
     
    The shadow home secretary and leadership candidate also wants all teenagers to be taught about the dangers of “revenge porn” while in school.
     
    Currently sex education is only compulsory for children aged 11 and above, meaning Ms Cooper’s plan would drop the age limit by four years.
  • Members of the House of Lords are bidding to transfer powers on abortion from Westminster to the Scottish Parliament, it has emerged.
     
    The UK parliament’s upper chamber is soon set to scrutinise the Scotland Bill, introduced to take forward the recommendations of last year’s cross-party Smith Commission.
     
    The commission reported that “further serious consideration should be given” to the devolution of abortion powers to Scotland.
  • Online music videos will now get age ratings in the same way films do, following a government pilot.
