David Ripley: Great Christmas Dinner!

December 11th, 2017 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

We are thrilled to report that the annual ICL Christmas Dinner & Auction was the best yet. We were blessed with a full room, terrific auction items and a host of wonderful volunteers who made this event truly special.

State Treasurer Ron Crane provided a powerful address to the crowd about his life-long commitment to the values which brought everyone together. And it was heartwarming to see so many of his family in attendance as he was honored for his leadership on pro-Life issues.

We were also blessed to have KIDO’s Kevin Miller serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. It is awesome to see Kevin outside the studio and fighting for the values which make him a statewide treasure.

To make the evening even more special, folks were graced by the beautiful voice of Christian recording artist Jaime Thietten. She performed a number of pieces from her new Christmas album and it helped set the mood for this wonderful Christmas Season.

Pro-Life patriots in the room had a chance to meet all three of the GOP candidates running for governor, and it was an honor to have congressional candidates Russ Fulcher and Michael Snyder host tables at the event. Former Lt. Governor Dave LeRoy was also there. And two of the candidates for Lt. Governor in next year’s GOP Primary – Steve Yates and Rep. Bob Nonini – helped support the dinner and spent the evening meeting pro-Lifers from across the Treasure Valley.

This event involves a lot of hard work by a lot of people – but it is always a special evening. It helps to bring into focus the heartbeat of the Christmas Season.

Thanks again to everyone who came, the candidates and officials who honored the pro-Life movement and the folks who generously support this work.

David Ripley: Dozen AG’s Defend Preborn Children

December 11th, 2017 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

State Attorneys General in a dozen states recently filed a “Friend of the Court” brief in a lawsuit being brought by Planned Parenthood against the state of North Carolina.

That southern state has had a 20-week ban in place since Roe v. Wade was handed down. But it amended the law a couple of years ago to tighten the exemptions under which late term abortions may be permissible. The amendment allows abortions after 20 weeks only when the mother’s life is threatened or a continued pregnancy would likely result in a serious physical impairment of the mother.

Planned Parenthood claims that those tighter restrictions violate its constitutional rights, as well as the constitutional rights of its future, potential clients.

Among the many bizarre aspects of abortion law is the wide latitude federal judges have granted Planned Parenthood to bring civil lawsuits. Generally speaking, a person must demonstrate at least probable harm in order to have standing in a federal lawsuit. Yet Planned Parenthood is regularly allowed to challenge laws on the basis that they represent hypothetical people who may never actually seek an abortion. Even more bizarre is that conflation of an individual woman’s purported constitutional right to an abortion with claims by Planned Parenthood that it has, somehow, acquired those same constitutional “rights”.

It is that kind of legal slop which is tolerated and essential to Planned Parenthood’s tyranny of the federal court system.

The 12 states rising to help defend North Carolina and preborn children across the nation are: West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas. We note, with real disappointment, that Idaho’s Lawrence Wasden is not among the list.

The lawsuit is pending in a North Carolina federal district court.

David Ripley: Finally – A Little Justice

December 10th, 2017 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

A couple of years ago, the nation was confronted with the barbaric nature of the Abortion Industry when the Center for Medical Progress publicized a series of videos demonstrating a huge black market in aborted baby parts. At the center of that trafficking-scheme-for-profit stands Planned Parenthood.

While the nation’s largest abortion chain has yet to be held accountable, prosecutors in California (of all places) have secured the first guilty plea from two of Planned Parenthood’s crime partners – DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences. The firms have agreed to pay some $7.8 million in fines and penalties. In addition, they have agreed to close their businesses. Permanently.

The prosecution by the Orange County District Attorney came after a formal referral by the Congressional Selective Investigative Panel on Infant Lives – headed by Congressman Marsha Blackburn.

This is real progress and puts real pressure on the nefarious Planned Parenthood abortion syndicate going forward.

However, according to reports by our colleagues at Operation Rescue, this development has even greater scandal: The owners of the two companies in question happen to be close associates of Hillary Clinton. It turns out that both companies are owned by members of the Isaias family – Estefano, Andres and Roberto.

Apparently these folks absconded with millions of dollars in stolen money from a bank they ran in Ecuador. They face criminal indictments in their native country. The Ecuadorian government claims that this crime family has bankrupted many citizens of this poor Central American country, and cost the Ecuador economy something approaching $660 million.

While Clinton was Secretary of State, the Ecuador government sought the extradition of the Isaias Family to face justice. But because of generous contributions to a slew of Democrat politicians in America, Clinton moved to deny the request.

“Hillary Clinton allowed a known crime family into the United States so they could sell Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby parts for profit,” said OR President Troy Newman. “This connects Clinton to the illegal baby parts trade, in addition to improperly giving special favors to criminals in return for financial donations. The FBI should include her in their ongoing investigation.”

The potential corruption here is nearly unbelievable. We will report on further developments as we discover them.

Here is a link to the Operation Rescue report.
