WASHINGTON UPDATE 05/31/2017 PLANNED PARENTHOOD AWASH WITH CASH! WHY SHOULD AMERICA GIVE THEM MORE MONEY?
Deadliest Cash: Planned Parenthood Reels in Record Profit
Want to make more for doing less? Ask Planned Parenthood how. The abortion giant is sitting on piles of cash according to their latest annual report -- and not because they earned it! It was a record year for abortions and profits, but not much else. And in the middle of the biggest fight over their funding in a decade, Planned Parenthood's 35-page document may have just made conservatives' case for them.
Texas is a long way from Silicon Valley -- and even farther away on values. Unfortunately, Apple CEO Tim Cook is trying to close that gap with a team of tech giants whose sole purpose is to get the conservative state to cave on privacy. When the state's legislative session ended, an important piece of business was still looming: a bill protecting gender-specific bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers. No thanks to House Speaker Joe Strauss, the measure was bottled up for weeks in committee, where it ultimately stalled and died.
This past week, as Watchmen on the Wall was taking place in Washington, D.C., two of the FRC team headed over to Europe to encourage the church and participate in an event focused on one of our core pillars -- the family. At this year's World Congress of Families, held in Budapest, Hungary, our own Peter Sprigg and Travis Weber shared FRC's vision and work with other attendees and networked with a number of Hungarian Christians. This year's location was partially chosen because of the pro-family policies of the country's current Prime Minister Viktor Orban, whose government helped organize the World Congress in conjunction with an umbrella event titled the Budapest Family Summit. Mr. Orban himself spoke at a part of the Summit titled the Budapest Demographic Forum, at which he warned Europe about its declining birth and fertility rates which pose a major threat to its future.
