July 29, 15 (LifeSiteNews) – The California Superior Court has issued a narrow temporary restraining order preventing the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life group, from releasing further undercover video footage taken of three top-level staff of StemExpress.

CMP is the organization behind the series of three videos released over the past three weeks exposing the alleged harvesting and sale of body parts from aborted babies by Planned Parenthood – body parts that are then purchased by StemExpress.

CMP has alleged that the fees paid by StemExpress to Planned Parenthood violate federal law prohibiting the sale and trafficking of human tissue.

While Planned Parenthood has claimed that the fees paid to them by StemExpress merely cover their costs, and fall within the bounds of the law, the video footage released so far has appeared to show Planned Parenthood employees seeking profit as part of the transaction.

In the most recent video, released Tuesday, a Planned Parenthood affiliate vice president was caught on video describing how the abortion organization can maximize profit. “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” Dr. Savita Sinde said of the aborted baby.

The Associated Press, which broke the news about the court order, reports that the undercover videos of the Stem Express staff were filmed at a restaurant in May.

It is unclear just how significant an impact the court order will have on the release of subsequent videos in the series. David Daleiden, the lead researcher with CMP, has said that at least nine more videos are slated for release.

The restraining order reportedly only pertains to the footage of the Stem Express employees, meaning that any other footage, including that featuring Planned Parenthood employees, can still be released as planned.

In an exclusive comment to LifeSiteNews after the release of the court order, Daleiden said that, at the end of the day, what happened in the courtroom may actually be a victory for the pro-life group.

“The ruling is very narrow, concerning only one specific meeting, and it is temporary and contingent pending further litigation,” he said. “The judge actually threw out completely the part of StemExpress’ case where they were asking to suppress the documents on their baby parts sales.”

“It was a much better day for us than it was for them and Planned Parenthood.”

In a statement released after the ruling, StemExpress stated that they sought the restraining order “on the grounds that CMP and Daleiden violated California’s anti-wiretapping law under Penal Code § 632 (Invasion of Privacy Act).”

“We will continue to pursue all available legal remedies against CMP and Daleiden,” said the company.

However, Daleiden told LifeSiteNews that StemExpress’ complaints are groundless.

“The recordings in California complied with the California law,” he said. “The California law only applies to ‘confidential communications’ and does not include conversations held in public that anyone can overhear. There is significant case law on this point as well.”

In a separate statement released after the court ruling, CMP accused Stem Express of using “meritless litigation” to “cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public.”

The AP reports that the restraining order will remain in place until a hearing on Aug. 19.

The videos released by CMP to date have amassed millions of views, and have been featured in countless media nationally and internationally.

Even more striking, perhaps, than the footage appearing to demonstrate that Planned Parenthood is profiting from the sale of the aborted baby body parts, has been the footage showing the cavalier manner in which the Planned Parenthood employees have spoken about the aborted babies.

In an interview with LifeSiteNews, Fr. Frank Pavone, one of the pro-life leaders behind the release of the video series, said, “When an abortionist dehumanizes the baby that he or she is about to kill, the abortionist also dehumanizes himself. And this is what we are seeing in these people. We see it in Deborah Nucatola sipping the wine and eating the salad and talking about the body parts.”

Pavone said one of the main objectives of the video series was to humanize the unborn baby. “When people see and hear terms like ‘eyes, livers, hearts’ it’s like, ‘What are we talking about here? This is ghoulish disgusting activity.’”

Is Amy Grant a Witting or Unwitting Partner with B & M Gates?


Bill Gates Eugenics Agenda


John R. Houk

“ABORTION”
 
If you are a Pro-Life Biblically minded Christian, that word is synonymous with profanity.
 
Do you know who Amy Grant is?
 
My Born Again experience began in the late ‘70s. That means as far as my music tastes went, I moved from rock-n-roll to contemporary Christian music. Do you know who became a contemporary Christian music superstar in the decade of the ‘80s? Yup, Amy Grant.
 
Now that I am nearing my 60s in age, I am uncertain how popular Amy Grant is in the contemporary Christian music fan base today. In the 1980s however, a Grant concert was a very desirable ticket to have in hand. On a personal level I have seen and heard Amy Grant three separate times – all in Tulsa OK. The first was a free concert at Tulsa’s Mohawk Park sponsored by a local Christian radio station. At the time she was starting out in a Christian singing career and she was about 18 years old (I can’t remember if it was 17, 18 or 19). At the time of my second concert experience she was worth paying money to buy a ticket. And my third and favorite concert experience was the Grant ‘Unguarded Tour’ in which many of the Christian tunes were really my style in that they were Christian-Pop rock-n-roll(ish).
 
My favorite tune from that concert and album – “Wise Up”.

Perhaps Ms. Grant should take some advice from her 1985 concert days and “Wise Up”. As much as I still have an endearment of her music (most of which I consider Anointed Christian music), I believe she has made an error in judgment in hooking up with the Gates Foundation – as in Bill & Melinda Gates.
 
Now don’t get me wrong, the Gates Foundation does a lot of good educational wise, especially in the realm of making personal computers available to School Districts that are grossly underfunded.
 
On the other hand the Gates Foundation is supportive of very Left Wing agendas which certainly makes Center-Left to extreme-Left people happy. Old Bill and Melinda deep – deep into everything to do with de-populating the earth under the warped Leftist altruistic idea that an optimum human population will better for both the earth and humanity. The de-population paradigm is part of the elitist cult paradigm behind the United Nations Agenda 21.
 
Except for what was a gaffe not intended for public consumption, Bill Gates gave his de-population sentiments in a very public forum. At one of those crazy TED speeches that elitist Leftists participate in, Gates lectures on his algebraic equation to normalize the earth’s human population as part of an overall Climate Change alert paradigm. The equation is Co2 = P x S x E x C which supposed to have at least one variable be as close to ZERO as possible so that both sides of the equation relate to the numeric value of ZERO. After the variables are given English meanings the equation looks like Carbon Dioxide equals People times Services per/people times Energy output per/service times Carbon released per unit of energy which again to be effective has to at least come close to ZERO. In the Gates TED Lecture the variable indicated that should be closest to ZERO as possible is P for People.

Bill Gates helps fund chemtrails, and supports depopulation. The proof is in the pudding! Read and watch for yourself. Bill Gates is clearly part of the global elite. But does it really surprise you?

Natural News Article:

 
Bill and Melinda Gates have used their vast amounts of cash to avoid criminal investigations and to avoid civil suits against them or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). Avoiding criminal and civil convictions is what enables the Gates couple and their Foundation to claim all the data against them are a fabricated lie. And of course the ‘show me the proof’ is a typical Left Wing legal tactic to say I or we did nothing wrong. (Look at BHO and his cadres, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton as examples of this deceptive Leftist strategy.)
 
Thus most of the places willing to expose BMGF are usually pooh-poohed Conspiracy Theory sources or brave Third World investigative journalists whose findings and data are often maligned as not really reliable sources to trust in an accusation.
 
Here is an example of Bill and Melinda deception in vaccines created to fight diseases or as legitimate contraceptive drugs or devices. In the USA vaccines vilified as having the potential of horrible side effects like perhaps Gardasil (aka the HPV vaccine) or the combination of vaccines relating to various diseases. In the case of Amy Grant teaming up with Bill and Melinda Gates is their belief that sterilization of women in birth-baring years will knock down the world’s population.
 
Melinda Gates: Family Planning Means Sterilizing Women in Developing Nations
              
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) are hosting The London Family Planning Summit (LFPS) where they will purvey [Dead Link] their depopulation and eugenics agenda in the name of women’s rights.
 
 
The Department for International Development (DID) claims that as women die from unwated [sic] preganacy [sic], those victims are prime candidates for their depopulation agenda. By simply controlling their ability to be fertile, the lives of countless women will be saved. Andrew Mitchell, aide to the DID said: “It is a shocking fact that pregnancy can be a death sentence for many girls and women in the developing world. What is all the more devastating is that many of these pregnancies were unintended.”
 
Mitchell is working intimately with Melinda Gates as she makes family planning her “top priority”. Gates hopes that the LSFP and her work with the DID “will galvanize a global movement” to sterilize and enforce contraceptives onto the majority of the under-developed nations populations; thereby ensuring that conception cannot take place.
 
 
 
Simply put: the BMGF has classified “unwanted” pregnancies and they are focusing on eventually eliminating this number to reduce the world’s population. Africa, a big focus for the BMGF is being targeted along with Muslim nations.
 
BMGF has partnered with drug corporations like Shanghai Dahua Pharmaceuticals in China to develop implantable fertility controls that will be used in over 20 developing countries to curb population growth.
 
 
The focus of BMGF on third world nations is clear. They are the most densely populated areas of the world. Their governments are able to take more advantage of their citizens than in industrialized countries. And they are less educated as to the real dangers posed by these NGOs, the BMGF and makeshift medical clinics where surgical procedures to force sterilize their countrymen and women. (Melinda Gates: Family Planning Means Sterilizing Women in Developing Nations; By Susanne Posel; Activist Post; 7/11/12)
 
Melinda Gates 3
Melinda Gates
 
If Amy Grant believes in using her image coupled with the depopulation agenda image of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is a good thing while still highlighting the Grant Pro-Life stand, THEN Ms. Grant has not done her homework.
 
Other websites with info on the BMGF depopulation agenda that goes with Climate Change, Geo-Engineering, Chemtrails, etc. (Yeah I know of these websites Conspiracy Theory reputations; nonetheless much of MSM is Left oriented and are not willing to investigate elitist power brokers such as Bill Gates.)


 
 
 
 
 
 
The two Life Site News posts below could almost have been written as single post but as updated info. The second report has a lot of duplicated info from the first but diverges with Amy Grant responses in the forms of a tweet and a facebook post.

Christian Singer Amy Grant Partners With Pro-Abortion Gates Foundation
 
Amy Grant
 
By STEVEN ERTELT
May 6, 2015
 
Popular Christian singer Amy Grant is pro-life on the issue of abortion, but she recently announced she is teaming up with one of the most pro-abortion foundations that shuttled millions towards abortions and abortion businesses.
 
In an opinion column on Fox News’ web site, Grant announced she is partnering with the Gates Foundation to push birth control and contraception in impoverished nations. Grant said she hosted pro-abortion Melinda Gates recently at a Christian event in Nashville, Tennessee to discuss their partnership.
 
“I hosted Melinda Gates in Nashville as she came to meet with our vibrant faith community for the first time. I didn’t know Melinda, and she didn’t know me. But we did know each other’s work well. What an amazing experience to hear about her faith journey, how Christian music had influenced her commitment to the world’s poor, and to learn more about how I could join hands with her and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help 120 million women around the world, to save their lives and the lives of their children,” Grant writes.
 
“Over 220 million women around the world have raised their voices to say that they want to avoid their next pregnancy but lack the information or contraceptives to do so. To say this takes extreme courage. And to hear this and do something about it takes courage. This means talking about pregnancy and birth and newborns with influential leaders across the United States. It means discussing complications and deaths. It means looking at the statistics and rethinking contraceptives as a pro-life cause,” Grant adds.
 
Grant concludes: “Please join me in this simple prayer for God to lead us to the ones we need and to the ones who need us. And may we have the compassion and the courage to meet those needs, even for the most vulnerable mothers and children worldwide.”
 
While most pro-life people support contraception and birth control and while pushing to lower maternal mortality is truly a laudable goal (and countries with the lowest maternal mortality rates have pro-life laws banning abortions), pro-life advocates and fans of Amy Grant will likely be outraged to learn that Grant is partnering up with the strenuously pro-abortion Gates Foundation.
 
Although Grant says she is knows “well” about the work the Gates Foundation does, apparently she is uninformed about the millions it has thrown to the abortion industry. As LifeNews previously chronicled, the Gates Foundations has sent tens of millions to the two biggest abortion businesses in the world, each of which have snuffed out the lives of millions of unborn babies in abortions that Grant opposes:
 
According to the Gates Foundation grant database, the Foundation gave Planned Parenthood of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, and Planned Parenthood of Western Washington about $71 million from before 2009 through 2013. Additionally, the Gates Foundation gave $46.1 million to Marie Stopes International in 2012 alone.
 
Much of this giving is focused on Africa, Asia, and Latin America, where abortion-providers like Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes, and Ipas seek to overturn pro-life laws and sometimes even provide illicit abortion drugs.
 
While Gates Foundation funds cannot be earmarked for abortion, the fungibility of money makes it easier for these organizations to provide abortion internationally.  In other words, every dollar the Gates Foundation gives to Planned Parenthood for distributing birth control or building an abortion-friendly clinic frees up a dollar in Planned Parenthood’s budget to spend elsewhere.
 
If aid is fungible, it simply does not matter what donors finance. They may end up financing, at the margin, very different and perhaps undesirable activities. When the recipients of these funds are the world’s leading abortion providers, it’s not hard to figure out where newly freed money in their budgets will go.
 
The Gates family has long been intertwined with Planned Parenthood. In a 2003 interview with Bill Moyers, Bill Gates recalled, “When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”
 
Perhaps Grant was prompted by misleading news stories where Melinda Gates claimed the foundation wouldn’t fund abortions directly as making her foundation safe to work with, but the funding of the abortion industry is clear and a proven problem. Grant also needs to look further into the abortion advocacy of the foundation and Melinda’s own abortion push at international events.

Christian Singer Amy Grant Defends Partnership With Pro-Abortion Gates Foundation After Criticism
 
Amy Grant 2

Popular Christian singer Amy Grant is defending her partnership with Melinda Gates of the pro-abortion Gates Foundation after LifeNews.com exposed the partnership and the foundation’s massive financial support for the abortion industry.
 
Amy Grant is pro-life on the issue of abortion, but she recently announced she is teaming up with one the head of the most pro-abortion foundations that shuttled millions towards abortions and abortion businesses.
 
In an opinion column on Fox News’ web site, Grant announced she is partnering with Melinda Gates of the Gates Foundation to push birth control and contraception in impoverished nations. Grant said she hosted Gates recently at a Christian event in Nashville, Tennessee to discuss their partnership.

Additionally, the Gates Foundation gave $46.1 million to Marie Stopes International in 2012 alone. Both Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes have killed tens of millions of unborn children in abortions worldwide and are considered the two biggest abortion businesses with abortion facilities located across the globe. Planned Parenthood actively pushes legalizing abortions and overturning pro-life laws in the very nations Grant is hoping to help in her campaign.
Following the LifeNews article and criticism from pro-life people, Grant is defending her decision to support the Gates Foundation. She posted on Facebook:
 
Gates Foundation is NOT pro-abortion. This key line on the Hope Through Healing Hands website explains the focus of the Gates Foundation-backed Faith-based Coalition for Healthy Mothers & Children Worldwide: What do we mean when we say we support the “healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies”? We mean enabling women and couples to determine the number and timing of their pregnancies, including the voluntary use of methods for preventing pregnancy, not including abortion, that are harmonious with their values and religious beliefs. The term “family planning” is often used synonymously with this concept. This is found at this link: http://www.hopethroughhealinghands.org/about
 
Amy Grant Tweet about Abortion Criticism
 
Other responses from Amy Grant’s Facebook page make it clear Grant is defending the contraception portion of her partnership with the Gates Foundation but ignoring its enormous investment in the abortion industry.
 
From Team Amy – we respect your opinion but simply do not agree that contraception and family planning are the same as abortion. Blessings.
 
From Team Amy – this initiative is decidedly pro-life in its efforts to improve the health of millions of women and children across the world.
 
From Team Amy – we are trying to respond as best we can. We aren’t perfect but are trying to explain our hearts. For you to insinuate that Amy was “bought” for this cause was insulting. This initiative is decidedly pro-life. The focus is to improve maternal and child health globally. We understand that good people disagree about issues and we certainly don’t want anyone supporting a cause that they don’t believe in. We, however, very much believe that maternal health and family planning (NOT abortions) are pro-life causes that value the lives of millions of women and children.
 
None of the comments from Grant’s official Facebook page at press time appear to respond to comments about the Gates Foundation’s millions in investments in abortion businesses worldwide and Grant’s partnership with an organization that pushes abortion on a global scale.
 
Perhaps Grant was prompted to partner with Gates by misleading news stories where Melinda Gates claimed the foundation wouldn’t fund abortions directly as making her foundation safe to work with, but the funding of the abortion industry is clear and a proven problem. Grant also needs to look further into the abortion advocacy of the foundation and Melinda’s own abortion push at international events.

Homosexuals Attack Free Speech with Petition Threat


Jim Bob & Michelle Dug 2

John R. Houk

© December 5, 2014

 

Do you know who Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are? If you do then good, you’ll already have an inkling about the nature of this post. Admittedly I never heard of them until I received an American Family Association (AFA) email alert about them. Evidently the Duggars – including their 19 children – are the stars of a family reality show on the TLC Network.

 

Duggars are a faith based family. Being Christians supporting Christian morality drives atheists, Leftists and – wait for it– homosexuals very apoplectic. Michelle Duggar has gone on record protesting a city ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas that allows transgender men in the Lady’s room in public places. And the real fits began against the Duggars when Michelle stuck to her Christian principles and got involved in some grassroots lobbying with robocalls condemning the Fayetteville ordinance.

 

Homosexual activists became so annoyed with Michelle Duggar that they began a Change.org petition to have the Duggar reality show “19 Kids and Counting” removed from the TLC Network line-up. 

 

This is another example of the Left Wing war on Christians, particularly against traditional Biblical based Christians that adhere to Christian morality. The propaganda from the Left and Homosexual activists that Christian morality is aberrant and offensive belief system in the 21st century.

 

It is both sad and joyous that America is in a day when homosexuals can call Christians an aberrancy and an offensive group of people. It is sad because Christianity is one of the hallmarks of America’s exceptionalism even as far back as colonial days. It is joyous because when society voluntarily falls away from the Christian faith it is one of the evidences of a soon return of Jesus Christ the Son of God to govern the entire planet as King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

 

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. (Matthew 24: 3, 9-13 NKJV)

 

1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ[a] had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

 

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle. (2 Thessalonians 2: 1-4, 9-15 NKJV)

 

Truthfully I doubt that I will ever watch the Duggar family reality show on TLC; but I can’t sit here and not do anything to stand against homosexual bullying of Christians and the opinions of Christians. The AFA email has link to their November 21 post of a petition. There are other supportive petitions to sign as well. Dear God sign every petition that supports the Christian faith above making ungodliness an accepted practice.

TLC stays mum on call for 19 Kids and Counting cancellation; 200,000 sign petition to keep the show

 

By Cath Martin

December 1, 2014

Christian Today

 

TV network TLC is staying silent in the battle of petitions over the future of reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting.

 

Pro-gay advocates have been calling for the show’s cancellation via a petition on the Change.org website, but their efforts have triggered a groundswell of support for the Duggar family from others who support their position on sexuality.

 

The Change.org petition was launched back in August attacking Michelle Duggar’s “fearmongering” and “hatred” after she publicly challenged an ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that would have allowed transgender women to use female restrooms.

 

It was also critical of the oldest son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, Josh, because of his involvement with the conservative think tank, Family Research Council.

 

“Duggar words reek of ignroance and fear mongering. Just because someone is transgendered doesn’t mean they are a child predator or a rapist. The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women’s restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering and spreading ignornace and hatred,” it read.

 

It has been signed over 170,000 times, and signatures spiked in recent weeks when it was widely publicised on entertainment media outlets.

The petition defending the family, launched a week ago on the LifeSiteNews website, has been signed by over 204,000 times.

 

“The Duggar Family is under attack from anti-marriage advocates for standing for traditional marriage,” the petition says.

 

“We commend The Duggar Family for their brave stand in defending marriage as ordained by God between one man and one woman. No individual’s sexual behavior and chosen lifestyle has the right to redefine marriage.

 

Its supporters include senator Rick Santorum, who told the website that the Duggars were “a wonderful family, and Karen and I support them and encourage folks to stand with the Duggars against these ridiculous attacks from the left”.

 

The Christian Post said it had contacted TLC for its reaction to the petitions and a spokesperson said they had no comment to make on the matter.
