According to the Sporting News, ESPN is considering hiring former NFL player Ben Watson for an NFL analyst role. Watson seems like a natural for a broadcaster career.

With 57 affiliates nationwide operating more than 600 health centers, Planned Parenthood has become the face of women's reproductive and abortion rights in the U.S. While only about half of Planned Parenthood affiliates perform abortions, the organization is the nation's leading abortion provider.

Three Republican women in Congress — two in the House and one in the Senate — have introduced bills to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. On Wednesday, Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina introduced H.R. 296, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act:The bill would codify President Donald Trump’s Protect Life Rule that excludes abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, from receiving Title X funding.

She repeated the list of … [Read more...] about Pro-Life Leaders Map Out Path to Defund Planned Parenthood with Trump Officials
Planned Parenthood – an organization that advocates for abortions of unborn American babies up until the day of birth – apparently is encouraging births for illegal aliens. On Tuesday, the abortion giant said President Donald Trump’s plan for an executive order to eliminate birthright citizenship is “despicable, egregious, unconstitutional.”The irony of the situation was not lost on many Twitter users: Twitchy highlighted some other interesting tweets in response to Planned Parenthood’s sudden interest in birth. “So, you oppose aborting birthright citizenship?” asked conservative radio host Dana Loesch: “Birth right opinions by those that prevent birth,” posted Kane Facts. “What an oxymoron!”: During an interview with Axios Tuesday, Trump revealed he is planning to end the birthright citizenship policy – which awards the children of illegal aliens with United States citizenship – by executive … [Read more...] about Planned Parenthood Encourages Birth … for Illegal Aliens
