    Houston Area Pastor Council: With reports today (“Parker Says City Should Pass Non-Discrimination Ordinance”, Houston Chronicle) that Mayor Annise Parker would support the aggressive ordinance that provoked citywide controversy in San Antonio, an inter-racial, inter-denominational coalition of pastors long active in the city declared they are not surprised. In addition, speaking for Houston Area Pastor Council, Pastor Willie Davis said that attempts to equate sexual behavior, “gender expression” and “gender identity” to race are not only wrong but offensive.

    WOAI.com: Robert Wilson, an attorney who works with the Alliance Defending Freedom, says the ‘over the top’ response of backers of the ordinance to Chan’s secretly recorded comments is a perfect demonstration of why opposition to the ordinance is growing. “The Mayor calls her homophobic and some in the LBGT community trumpet that her private views on homosexual behavior and gender identity are grounds for ridicule, calling her names, and demanding her resignation, even if those views have not affected her ability to serve those in her district,” Wilson said. “If this ordinance passes, name calling will be replaced by a fine, a lawsuit, a loss of a city contract or removal from city government.”

Planned Parenthood Investigation Launched | Right Side News

    Right Side News: The settlement brought to at least $12.5 million the amount of “waste, abuse and ‘fraudulent overbilling’ of taxpayers” by Planned Parenthood affiliates in publicly revealed audits, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). ADF has charged Planned Parenthood with misusing millions of dollars in government funds in a report to Congress. Other ADF lawsuits contend Planned Parenthood affiliates have filed fraudulent claims for far more in government money. Its suit against Planned Parenthood of the Heartland — based in Des Moines, Iowa — alleges the organization filed nearly 500,000 false Medicaid claims and received nearly $28 million. Its legal action against Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, headquartered in Seattle, Wash., says damages could be more than $370 million from fraudulent claims. ADF Senior Counsel Michael Norton called the settlement in the PPGC case “merely the tip of the iceberg.” Planned Parenthood “uses taxpayer dollars to pad its bottom line with little regard for the health of women,” he said. “[It] has been improperly reimbursed by millions of taxpayer dollars over the years.”
