Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz says Democrats will shut down Catholic church charities and hospitals if the church doesn’t change its beliefs.
PolitiFact found no sign of such a statement -- or anything close..Cruz says Democrats are "fighting a war on religious liberty," but there is no basis for this wild, outrageous claim.  Christians should uphold the truth.

Teachers Leave Archdiocese Of Cincinnati Over Controversial 'Morality Clause' In New Contract

"Women of childbearing age spend 68 percent more in out-of-pocket health care costs than men."

"Hobby Lobby provided this (birth control) coverage before they decided to drop it to file suit."
The Christian-owned company did previously offer insurance plans that included coverage of a few contraceptives at issue in the case, namely morning-after pills, but reports suggest owners weren't aware they offered that coverage.

White House rolls out new birth control accommodation for nonprofits
Nonprofits as Catholic schools and hospitals can opt out of covering birth control by notifying the Department of Health and Human Services of their objections. A third-party insurer will pay for and administer the coverage so that women still receive the contraceptive coverage guaranteed to them by the Affordable Care Act.

Women Don't Think The GOP Cares About Them, Internal Report Confirms

"Abortions account for 94 percent of the services provided for pregnant women by Planned Parenthood."
Planned Parenthood’s annual report show that the agency conducted 1.1 million pregnancy tests, 3.7 million tests for sexually transmitted diseases, prenatal services, and childbirth classes, among other services, but the agency does not track abortion numbers. The Bishop's figures have no factual basis.
The Family Foundation
"The United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization."
PolitiFact cites done by both pro- and anti-abortion rights groups that back up this claim.
Marco Rubio
Rubio said he had never advocated exceptions for rape or incest to abortion bans.
 In 2013, he co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was meant to prohibit abortions of unborn children more than 20 weeks into a pregnancy. It  would have allowed exceptions in rape or incest or if the life of the mother was threatened. He refused to say if he would let a woman die rather than abort.
Pope Francis
During the upcoming Holy, "Jubilee" year, Pope Francis will allow priests to forgive women who had abortions .
Until now the Catholic Church taught that abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication. Only designated clergy and missionaries were allowed to formally forgive abortions. Priests may grant absolution between Dec. 8, 2015 to Nov. 26, 2016. Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies.
