Friday August 6, 2010 Pro-Life 101: “How Dare You Call me Pro-Abortion?!

By Peter J. Smith SAN FRANCISCO, California, Aug. 31, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood (PP) Federation of America is not divulging the details behind its decision to revoke its trademark from a San Francisco area affiliate.

Planned Parenthood of the Golden Gate (PPGG), which was implicated in the 2003 RU-486 death of Holly Patterson, operates eight […]
