The WNBA and Planned Parenthood Team Up to “Take a Stand” Against Trump

Apparently, there is no female empowerment without government-funded abortion.

Apparently, there is no female empowerment without government-funded abortion.

At least, this is how the WNBA feels as they announce they’ve teamed up with Planned Parenthood to “empower girls and women” to have continued access to on-demand abortion without apology.

The move comes in the wake of a surprise announcement from the Trump administration that they’ll be working to stop the flow of federal funding to abortion provider Planned Parenthood, which receives $1.3 million in federal funding each year.

The WNBA, in a campaign they’re calling “Take a Seat, Take a Stand,” will be donating $5 of every ticket purchase to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion women’s organizations such as The United State of Women, It’s On Us, the gay advocacy group GLSEN, Bright Pink, and MENTOR, according to Breitbart.

“For 22 years, the WNBA and its players – women playing at the highest level of their sport – have stood up as role models for millions of women and girls,” said WNBA President Lisa Borders in a statement. “With ‘Take a Seat, Take a Stand,’ we are proud to come together as a league to stand with our partner organizations, our fans and the many inspiring women raising their voices for change in the current women’s movement.”

Planned Parenthood, in turn, expressed their gratitude to the WNBA:

“We’re so grateful the WNBA is standing up for the 2.4 million patients who rely on Planned Parenthood and supporting issues that affect the health, well-being, and success of women and girls,” said Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Players have used their platforms to bring attention to inequality and, through ‘Take a Seat, Take a Stand,’ the WNBA is giving fans an opportunity to join them in the fight for social change.”

The pro-life crowd, understandably so, were critical of this move by a sports organization many had forgotten even existed.

“If you needed more proof that the WNBA is lame,” pro-life blogger Matt Walsh said in response to the WNBA’s announcement.

“On the bright side,” one of his followers reassured, “that means that the new donations heading into PP from this policy will be rather minuscule considering the massive popularity and soaring ticket sales of the WNBA…”

Fair point.

Ghislaine Maxwell, Confidant of Jeffrey Epstein, Has Been Arrested In New Hampshire

Published

Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend and confidant of the late Jeffrey Epstein — who probably didn’t kill himself, ha-ha — has been arrested in the state of New Hampshire according to new reports being blasted across most major news outlets this morning. The FBI confirmed that the accused madam was officially taken into custody at 8:30 a.m. in Branford, N.H. The charges she’s been arrested over have not yet been revealed. Makes you sort of wonder if the same fate the befell Epstein might come knocking on Maxwell’s door, doesn’t it? Eerie. Here’s more from Fox News: Maxwell, the daughter of late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, has been accused in civil court filings of facilitating a sex-trafficking operation that brought girls — some as young as 14 — to Epstein’s Manhattan home, though until Thursday she had not been formally charged with any criminal wrongdoing. While there have been reports that there were several others who “facilitated” Epstein’s alleged sexual abuse also being investigated, the main focus has been on Maxwell. Maxwell, 58, dated Epstein more than a decade ago and became a member of his tight inner circle until his August 10 jail-cell suicide. What this means is that Maxwell was privy to a lot of the same information that Epstein was and no doubt knew about all of his big time connections and whether or not those connections were involved in his pedophilia ring. If something did indeed happen to Epstein while in custody, then that would mean that Maxwell could potentially be a target as well. If something happens to her it will no doubt confirm all of the suspicions folks have had about the very strange timing of Epstein’s “suicide.” Back in May, Maxwell managed to win a request to delay questioning concerning a civil…

Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms. Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo. However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control. The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect. Here’s more from The Free Beacon: Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase. Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering…
