By Lauretta Brown, National Catholic Register - Attorneys general in 20 states and the District of Columbia are conducting investigations into child sex abuse and cover-ups by the Church. These investigations continue one year after the bombshell Pennsylvania grand jury report, which subsequently helped prompt new guidelines from the Vatican on the handling of sexual abuse… There could be as many as 45 states investigating the Church behind the scenes, as well, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
By Brad Mattes, LifeNews - This week, Planned Parenthood (PP) forfeited $60 million in Title X tax funding instead of getting out of the abortion business. That was their share of a total $286 hundred million earmarked for family planning services… Title X dollars are fungible when it comes to abortion. For example, PP abortion facilities use it as a slush fund, spending the money on advertising, staffing, utilities, rent, office supplies or computers. These assets are used to facilitate both family planning services and abortion. The Protect Life Rule draws a bright line between family planning and the abortion industry by excluding entities that refer for or provide abortion.
