Defunding the largest organization providing education and pregnancy prevention services will only increase the percentage of young people relegated into poverty, not only in this generation but also for generations to come.
Like the Dominican Republic, other countries are slowly starting to question this injustice and taking steps to decriminalize abortion in favor of women and girls' human rights to health, to be free from cruel and inhuman treatment and other torture, as well as their right to life.
If anything, Trump is possibly the most liberal conservative the GOP has seen in decades.
As our time together progressed, I started to get a little disappointed. Sometimes I felt ignored. You seemed more interested in your extreme right-wing friends than you were in me.
We're going to begin today with a wrapup of the week that was in the presidential campaigns, and as befitting his status as the Republican frontrunner, we're going to start with Donald Trump.
While my Christian faith leads me to view abortion through the lenses of sadness, indignity, compassion, anger, hospitality, and generosity, I am equally disturbed by the willingness of Christians to so easily trade one moral value for another.
Planned Parenthood has become the battered scapegoat, bullied by a Senate that historically and profoundly excludes women.

Sister Chittister challenges all of us, both pro-choice and pro-life, to think in broader, more meaningful ways about the issue.
Duke Energy, which receives over $898 million in subsidies (nearly twice the federal funds allocated for Planned Parenthood) illegally dumped tens of millions of gallons of polluted waste water.

A great movie script is being written right now in the American public. An opportunistic Hollywood producer would do well to obtain the rights to it; it would be courtroom drama at it's best! It goes like this.
Republican candidates convened last night for the first debates of the 2016 campaign. The presidential hopefuls disagreed on all but one topic: the controversy over the recent release of an undercover video with Planned Parenthood.
Well, that was entertaining, wasn't it? We refer, of course, to the grand spectacle of the first Republican presidential debates, held last night on Fox News. Since this is all anyone's talking about in the political world today, we are going to follow suit and devote most of this column to our reactions.
There are some faith leaders within Christianity who vocally and openly criticize what they see as the problems with the arguments made on behalf of a pro-life position based on one's faith.
It is hard to believe that the roster of 10 men could land such a despicable debate. It is a shame for them, and a shame for their party. I congratulate the moderators on having found enough substance in their questions.
