American Life League
Says, Girl Scouts are teaching girls to emulate pro-abortion icons.
The scouts' advocacy guide includes some quotes by or info about famous women, but none of the guide's 50-some biographical blurbs mentions any woman's activism per abortion as a reason for singling her out. Abortion is not mentioned elsewhere in the guide, either.

Cookie Roberts
"Two-thirds of the people who receive the minimum wage are female."
Federal data shows 62% of people who earn the federal minimum wage or below are women, however this doesn't account for women in states with a higher minimum wage. One study says that if the federal government raises the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, women will benefit more than men by a 55-45 percent spread.
Jimmy Carter Democrat

"Hobby Lobby provided this (birth control) coverage before they decided to drop it to file suit."

Barack Obama
"The United States is the only developed country in the world without paid maternity leave."

Windy Davis TX Demo gov candatate
Says that, as a Supreme Court justice, Greg Abbott found that a company whose vacuum cleaners were sold door to door "had no responsibility" in the hiring of a salesman who raped a customer.

Barack Obama
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
Although Republicans have tried to improve outreach to female voters, women still believe the party is "stuck in the past" and "intolerant." This study was commissioned by two conservative groups.
Rush Limbaugh
When a woman says "No" to sexual advances she really means "Yes" if you know how to spot it, according to Rush.
Rush Limbaugh is so sick of the "modern" definition of consent. He says new rape definitions are just lawsuits in the making.  Defining sex as rape when a woman says "No" is "just crazy talk." This definition of rape "sucks all the fun out" of sex. See video
James Brown Cbs Sports
'More than 3 women per day' are killed by their partner.
During the Sept. 11 pregame broadcast, Brown urged men to learn "what healthy, respectful manhood is all about" and to "give help or to get help, because our silence is deafening and deadly."  Domestic violence experts confirm his claim.
Republican Policies Questioned
Republicans For Kansas Values are backing the Democratic candidate for governor because the Republican agenda has backfired in Kansas.
This organization, supported by an extensive list of notable Republican politicians and public servants, has posted an impressive statement called, Why Sam Brownback’s Policies are Taking Kansas in the Wrong Direction. They say these Republican policies have caused deficit spending, drastic cuts in education and highway spending, hurt job growth, benefited special interests at the expense of the people, and downgrades Kansas character and creates embarrassing headlines.
Domestic Violence
Psychologist David Adams says it is time to address excuses given by abusers like Ray Rice.
Adams, Co-Founder and Co-Director of Emerge, an abuser education program, says common excuses are: "Alcohol made me do it," "She provoked me," or "I lost control," or "I was under a lot of stress." Even victims may believe the excuse.  Society must be clear that there is no excuse for abuse.
Malala Yousafzai
Radical Islamist militants, Boko Haram, abduct more women in Nigeria.
Scores of young women were kidnapped from a mountain village October 18, 2014 in new abductions by Islamist militants.  There were similarities to the abductions last April of more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls.  This sheds doubt on a deal that promised the return of the first girls.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand D-N.Y.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Renews Push for Senate Vote on Military Sexual Assault
“It’s Congress' responsibility to act as if the brave survivors of sexual assault are our sons, our daughters, our husbands and our lives who are being betrayed by the greatest military on earth.
Charles Angeletti
Professor makes students recite 'Anti-American' pledge of allegiance
Angeletti's strong political statement against Christian and University values by having students pledge allegiance to a racist, homophobic, sexist America that is in the name of Jesus, that hates Communists and women who want to get abortions.
Texas Rights To Life
Texas Right to Life says UT students signed petition to abort babies and,children up to age 5.
This email implies that UT students were hustling up support for legalizing infanticide and child killings. In reality, a visitor briefly collected signatures one day, almost like attempting a trick.
Mark Warner D-VA
Regarding sexual assault against women, "It’s actually safer not to be in college than it is to be in college."
Warner says women students on college campuses are more likely to be sexually assaulted than their peers who don’t seek a higher education. The researchers acknowledged shortcomings with their methodology and said their conclusions were "suggestive."
Barack Obama
"Nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape."
A well-respected survey by the CDC found that 19.3 percent of women reported experiences that are considered to be rape or attempted rape under the survey’s guidelines.
Bishop Thomas Tobin
"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.
Barack Obama
"Nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape."
The number comes from the 2011 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, which was released in September 2014 by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showing that 19.3 percent of women reported experiences that are considered to be rape or attempted rape under the survey’s guidelines.
Madonna says a violent rape at age 19 was too humiliating to report.
Like most victims Madonna, 56, couldn't speak publicly about the rape for over three decades because it was too painful. She told Howard Stern that ape is one of the most grossly underreported crimes in the United States. According to RAINN — the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network — 68 percent of sexual assaults are not reported to police, and there are about 293,000 victims a year.
Michelle Obama
First Lady says that it was her faith in God's plan for her that saved her from the pain of all the racial slurs and life struggles.
Michelle Obama's inspiring 2015 Commencement address to Tuskegee Graduates, reveals the personal struggles that she has faced, and how she learned to not let them define her, change who she is, or hold her back. Full Speech
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.
Scott Walker
Walker said, If women seeking an abortion see their ultrasound, "the odds are pretty high they're going to keep the baby."
The latest academic study shows that nearly all women proceed with an abortion even after seeing the ultrasound.
Harry Reid
Planned Parenthood is "the only health care that a significant number of women get. About 30 percent of women, that's their health care."
That’s not the case -- Planned Parenthood saw 2.7 million patients in 2013, not the 39 million it would have needed to see for Reid’s claim to be accurate. Even if every Planned Parenthood patient had no other health care options, the group would have seen about 2 percent of women, not 30 percent. 
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.
Donald Trump
Donald Trump is drawing fire from all corners of GOP after more caustic, sexist remarks.
Following the GOP debate where Trump jabbed at Megan Kelly, Trump told CNN,"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."  He was promptly dumped from a keynote speaking role at a major Conservative rally.  Trump's response is more insulting on twitter
Alliance Defending Freedom
"Zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms. Planned Parenthood, women don’t need you!"
In an effort to debunk defenders that Planned Parenthood provides essential women’s health services in addition to abortions, an anti-abortion group claimed that none of the organization’s clinics is licensed to provide mammograms. Planned Parenthood physicians do however perform the clinical exams that lead to referrals for a mammogram or other specialized care.
Planned Parenthood
Virginia woman bares mastectomy scars to lawmaker intent on defunding Planned Parenthood.
During an anti-abortion rant to defund Planned Parenthood, Leigh Anne Woods walked up the podium and took her shirt off saying, “You have a problem because they perform abortions, look at everything else they do, they save lives!” Woods said. “It’s more than birth control,” she insisted. “It’s more than abortion. They save lives.”
Ashley Madison Cheating Website
Some predict that over 400 clergy and religious leaders will resign their positions after their names appeared on the Ashley Madison list.
"The real tragedy is the hypocrisy that so many clergy engage in."  "We need to be humble and to embrace our flawed humanity as we seek through our faith and experience to better ourselves." When we truly face our humanity, we will stop pointing the finger at others in order to distract from our own sins.
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.
Jeb Bush Fl
Jeb Bush says, Planned Parenthood is "not actually doing women’s health issues."
Setting abortion procedures aside -- Planned Parenthood offered more than 10 million services in 2013. Those services included contraception, breast exams, pregnancy tests, pap tests and STI/STD testing and treatment.
Greg Abbott Tx Gop
"After Texas defunded Planned Parenthood, both the unintended pregnancy and abortion rates dropped."
Abortions were already declining. So, half this claim draws on cherry-picked statistics from Abbott and the other half lacks factual backup
Donald Trump
Among Syrian refugees, "there aren't that many women, there aren't that many children."
Trump's assessment of the refugee situation is badly mangled and is conflating two different sets of refugees: Those 534,000 reaching Europe by sea, who are mostly men, and the 4 million Syrians in U.N. refugee camps, most of whom are women and children.
Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah
Chaffetz says in 2006, Planned Parenthood performed more prevention services and cancer screenings than abortions, but in 2013, there were more abortions.
The statement is inaccurate. In fact, there were three times as many cancer screenings and prevention services as abortions in 2013.
Dana Loesch
Loesch said that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was "forced to concede that 86 percent of Planned Parenthood’s revenue is from abortion."
Richards made no such admission, even though she was grilled for 5 hours and not allowed to answer questions before the September 29, 2015 U.S. House hearing on Planned Parenthood. The Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch, served as a foil the claim that just 3 percent of it’s services are abortion-related.

Dan Patrick R-tx
Patrick says Planned Parenthood does nothing but profit from killing babies and then selling body parts
Planned Parenthood’s most common pregnancy services in 2013 were pregnancy tests (1.1 million services); HIV tests (704,000 services); emergency contraception kits (1.4 million services) and Pap tests (378,692 services). No federal money has paid for any abortion services, and there’s been no confirmation it sells body parts for profit.
Ted Cruz Tx
Cruz says "Under Barack Obama and the big government economy, the median wage for women has dropped $733."
Wages actually have risen for women since Obama took office. 
Hillary Clinton
Clinton says most minimum-wage workers are "women."
According to the study by PolitiFact, 62.7 percent of minimum wage workers age 16 and older are women. That’s almost, but not quite, two thirds.
Planned Parenthood
Grand Jury turns tables on Planned Parenthood accusers, but Texas Governor continues his investigation and his assault on Texas PP clinics.
On 1/25/2016 a Houston grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood of allegations that they sold organs of aborted fetuses, and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations on charges of using fake driver's licenses and violating Texas' law against the purchase and sale of human organs- the very law they tried to bring against against PP.
