Planned Parenthood and every other abortion advocate cannot succinctly define when life begins. Many argue that a baby isn’t a human being or has any right to live until after it is born but that begs the question about babies taken early or through C-sections.

(Life News) – It looks like Planned Parenthood will be taking Iowa to court this week over its efforts to protect unborn babies from abortion.
The abortion chain and the American Civil Liberties Union announced a press conference for Tuesday afternoon where they are expected to announce a lawsuit challenging Iowa’s new heartbeat law, the AP reports.

If infanticide, suicide, genocide and euthanasia are all illegal, then how can anyone justify legalizing abortion? One has to wonder if it would be possible for millions of conservative Americans to join forces in a class action lawsuit against the federal funding of Planned Parenthood? Other women’s health facilities who don’t provide abortions, so why should Planned Parenthood be funded with our taxpayer dollars?
