Thanks to The Heritage Foundation and The Daily Signal for this powerful piece featuring the important work of JC-LOLP's colleague and co-counsel, with whom we have worked for years to stop forced abortion and gendercide in China.

JC-LOLP's General Counsel, Samuel B. Casey, served as lead trial counsel for its client in this case, Austin LifeCare. When court costs are added to the attorneys fees, the City of Austin agreed to pay a total of $480,000. Hopefully, these fees will deter other municipalities, like the City of Austin, from violating the constituttional rights of pregnancy resource centers.

The Center for Medical Progress just released the third video further exposing Planned Parenthood's business of selling aborted baby's organs to the highest bidder.
Anyone with eyes to see—at least with eyes willing to see—can recognize the tiny hand and forearm, the tiny leg, picked at in a glass pie plate. You can see the neural tissue—what should have finished becoming a child’s brain and spinal cord—as a Planned Parenthood abortionist dismisses the idea of a flat fee and suggests a “per-item thing is a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
Be warned—this video isn’t well-dressed people sipping wine and discussing “specimens” over lunch. This is right inside a Planned Parenthood facility.
You may be tempted to turn away, thinking how much will decent people be able to stomach as this exposé of Planned Parenthood unfolds? But don’t turn away.
Our attorneys here at JC-LOLP have previously described the deep cuts in Planned Parenthood's non-abortion services and prenatal care and its ethodical push to build abortion mega-centers measuring tens of thousands of square feet, particularly in low income neighborhoods. Abortion, focusing on minority populations, and the sale of body parts is the business of Planned Parenthood.

Like we do here at JC-LOLP, you’ll no doubt want to weep for the 57 million babies slaughtered since 1973. Weep also for what this nation has done under the cover of its laws and the culture of death it continues to support.
But don't turn away. Look this evil squarely in the eye and call it out, once and for all.

JC-LOLP's attorneys have long explained why you can't trust what Planned Parenthood says. Here's some more reasons:
townhall.com I have a list of reasons why you can trust Planned Parenthood.
It's time to stop giving the abortion industry's leading abortion provider, Plannned Parenthod, any more federal taxpayer dollars. Call your representatives in Congress and tell them to sponsor and vote for Congresswoman Diane Black's bill,
H.R. 217, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act. This much-needed legislation would withhold Title X grants from Planned Parenthood and any other “health care” provider that performs abortions or that provides funds to organizations that do. The legislation, which Congresswoman Black first introduced in 2013, has the support of 151 cosponsors in Congress and would effectively defund America’s largest abortion mill once and for all. For the reasons set forth in Congressswoman Black's article below, JC-LOLP's attorneys are personally Congress to immediately act on the measure in light of these latest news developments.
townhall.com Over the last week, Planned Parenthoods slogan Care no matter what has become even more of a cruel irony after an undercover video exposed one of the organizations senior doctors callously describing the process by which she harvests aborted babies tissue and organs.
What has America become? Our President to advance his ill--gotten political fortunes says: "God bless Planned Parenthood" who we now learn as a matter of regular business practice to defray their "business" (abortion) expenses plan their late-term abortions to insure while they are destroying the baby they can harvest the marketable organs to "donate" to stem cell research firms who then pay them a "fee" per organ. Planned Parenthood's response that it is all for a "humanitarian cause" (pluripotent stem cell research) reminds us of the German residents of Auschwitz who the allies found wearing the shoes and jewels of Jews who had been incinerated at the nearby concentration camp who gave this excuse: "we didn't kill the Jews we are just using their shoes!" But PP is worse because they are doing the killing and they are being paid for both the killing and the "donating" of the organs. Whether this is or is not currently illegal will be the subject of Congressional and state investigations. But it should be illegal. While they are at it, Congress should amend the language of the Dicker-Wicker Amendment to make it clear that federal taxpayer money should not be used directly or indirectly to pay for destructive human embryo research that necessarily requires the destruction of embryonic human beings -- something that the Obama Administration currently funds everyday.
townhall.com "We were at one, blood to blood, as no other kind of union could make us," the English essayist Malcolm Muggeridge wrote, recalling giving his wife his own blood during a critical medical moment.
Here's one of the many reasons that JC-LOLP's attorneys are seeking all ways and means to end the mroe than $500,000,000 per year the federal government under the Obama Administration has been sending to Planned Parenthood.
JC-LOLP has long argued that Planned Parenthood (PP), the abortion industry's largest provider, should not be supported by the American taxpayer. Here's yet another reason: they are getting rich off the taxpayers. American Life League just released their report on the salaries of PP’s top headquarters personnel as well as all the CEOs of PP’s 62 affiliates. You can see the complete report here with CEO salaries listed by name and by affiliate:http://www.stopp.org/pdfs/2015/STOPP_AffiliatesCEOs2015.pdf
PP's National President, Cecile Richards, made $590,928 in 2014.
The top 12 people at PPFA headquarters made an average of $345,338 in 2014. The average CEO of a PP affiliate made $186,071 in 2013. Thirteen percent of the CEOs made over $300,000 that year.
This is crony capitalism at its worst. Let's stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.
To help mitigate the world-wide problem of people abandoning their infant children or dropping them on the door-steps of churches, most of the states in America have "Baby Moses" of so-called "Safe Haven" laws where a parent who cannot care for their child can without identification or liability simply drop their child off at a hospital or firehouse. Here's a story....
nationalrighttolifenews.org Glad you asked. Twelve years ago, then-engineer Tom O’Neill answered a knock on the door of a Westminster fire station which is located in Denver. It was February 15, 2003, early in the morning.
As we celebrate Father's Day, let's not forget the post-abortive Dads and the kids they lost when they agreed to or even coerced the abortion of their child(ren).

Sadly, ignoring JC-LOLP's "friend of the court" brief, a copy of which is here:
the U.S. Supreme Court today again refused to resolve a conflict among the U.S. Courts of Appeals and left standing a 4th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that told North Carolina that they could not require an abortion doctor to require a mother to have an opportunity to see her ulltrasound and have what it depicted explained to her before she could give her voluntary, fully-informed consent to the abortion of her unborn child.
lifenews.com The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected an appeal from the state of North Carolina to uphold a pro-life law allowing women a chance to see an ultrasound of their unborn baby before an abortion. Ultrasounds are routinely performed before an abortion but abortion clinics often don’t let women see the ul…
Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to follow the House and enact the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, as introduced yesterday in the Senate by its sponsor, Senator Lindsey Graham.
In 2013, a congressional report found that some 11,000 abortions take place each year at 20 weeks or more after fertilization.
Despite there being no national law banning the procedure, a number of states have taken it upon themselves to limit women’s access to late-term abortions, at least after 20-weeks when there is no doubt the unborn child feels the excruciating pain of the abortion and the risks of abortion at that time are greater than the maternal risks of carrying the child to term
Here's the current state-level score-card:
Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to follow the House and enact the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Getting one step closer to what could be the most significant pro-life victory since the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, Sen. Lindsey Graham today introduced a measure in the U.S. Senate that would drastically limit women’s ability to access abortions past a certain point in their pregnancy.
The legislation, called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, passed the House in May by a 242-to-184 vote and would ban abortions after 20 weeks (approximately halfway through a pregnancy).
The bill is based on a broad consensus of research that shows unborn infants are able to feel pain 20 weeks after fertilization, and at this point, children’s hospitals throughout the U.S. “routinely” administer fetal anesthesia when performing surgery.
The measure includes exceptions for cases of r**e, in**st or to save the life of the mother. According to public opinion polls, the majority of Americans support limits on late-term abortions.
For that reason, Graham and leaders of the pro-life community hope to rally bipartisan support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
dailysignal.com Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced a measure that would drastically limit women’s ability to access abortions past a certain point in their pregnancy.
JC-LOLP's attorneys have filed a "friend of the court" brief, a copy of which can be found here:
The brief asks the United States Supreme Court to reverse the decision of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Walker-McGill v. Stuart holding that the State of North Carolina may not constitutionally require a doctor to fully inform a pregnant mother about what her ultrasound shows prior to her consenting to an abortion. The 4th Circuit's Walker-McGill decision directly conflicts with the United State Supreme Court's Casey, Whalen and Zauderer decisions, as well as the 5th Circuit's Lakey decision, and the 8th Circuit's Rounds decision.
nationalrighttolifenews.org Rebekah Nancarrow had an ultrasound at Planned Parenthood (for which she paid $80), but wasn’t allowed to see the image. She was told by a Planned Parenthood worker that seeing the fetus on the screen “will only make it harder on you.”
All of us here at JC-LOLP applaud the 5th Circuit's decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Cole upholding the Texas law (HB 2) regulating abortion clinics, holding them to the same standards as other out-patient surgical facilities.
nationalreview.com The Fifth Circuit’s decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole has Big Abortion reeling. For years, the abortion lobby has used the false argument of “access” to put its business interests ahead of women’s health and safety, and has consistently opposed any and all commonsense health and safety measur…
While much work is left to be done, the abortion rate continues to fall and America's young people are more pro-life than their parents. Let's be the pro-life generation!
townhall.com A GALLUP POLL last month found that 50 percent of Americans identified themselves as "pro-choice" on abortion, surpassing the 44% who called themselves "pro-life."

Good news! On the 2nd anniversary of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell's convictions for infanticide, the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday finally passes bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks, in line with the laws of most nations.
The bill now moves to the Senate. President Obama, who voted in favor of infanticide when he was in the Illinois legislature, has threatened to veto the bill. Call your U.S. Senators and urge them to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
Polls show most Americans support a ban of elective abortions after 20 weeks. An estimated 10,000 to 20,000 abortions occur in the USA after the 20th week of pregnancy. 42 states bar abortions after certain points in pregnancies, including 10 with bans after 20 weeks.
breitbart.com The bill passed by a vote of 242-184. Four Democrats voted in favor of the bill and four Republicans voted against it. The measure now heads to the Senate.
Despite President Obama's promise to the American people that Obamacare would not mandate the payment for abortion, the Obama Administration is in fact compelling the health coverage of abortifacient drugs.

All of us here at JC-LOLP, thank every mother who, with the courage and loving patience with herself and others, bring the world's children into the world. We are grateful for everyone, despite the hardships and difficulties raising our children bring.
Bolstered by our fear of one another, particularly those we don't yet know, most particularly our own unborn children that become wrapped up in our fears for our own futures, we can fall prey to the "population controllers" who convince us to kill our own or even pay for others to kill their own. When we do so we become our most inhuman selves and we "kill" the world mistakenly thinking we are saving it.
blog.tifwe.org Population control is the most inhumane way to fight poverty because it diminishes the value of human life and limits human creativity.
While the abortion industry is opening "Abortion Spas" to celebrate the adult "comforts" abortion can afford their perpetrators (http://wapo.st/1DW61OF) and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (http://bit.ly/1FxAUOZ) recently "preached" that "... deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases [against abortion] have to be changed", let's honestly listen to what our children say when asked about the reality of abortion.
