Two New Policy Briefs on SCOTUS Marriage Ruling

It has been nearly three weeks since the U.S. Supreme Court issued its Obergefell ruling that played loose with the U.S. Constitution and legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.

Many people are still working to unravel the ruling’s implications and they are trying to determine how best to respond to the ruling. If you are among them, we have written two policy briefs you may find helpful.

The first analyzes the ruling and some of its implications. Download it here.

The second discusses what we can do in the wake of this terrible ruling. Download it here.

Updated: Video Shows Planned Parenthood Official Discussing Sale of Aborted Babies

An undercover video released by The Center for Medical Progress today shows actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company meeting with Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola.

“A lot of people want intact hearts these days, because they’re looking for specific nodes…And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as we can…Some people want lower extremities too, which, that’s simple. I mean, that’s easy.”

The Center for Medical Progress says the video is its first in a series on what it calls “a nearly 3-year-long investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts.”

You can watch the video below. Warning: The content is disturbing.

Updated: The Unedited Video is Online

The Center for Medical Progress has posted the unedited video. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes in length. You can watch it below.
