Plain Talk: North Dakota State Is “Being Used as a Mouthpiece” by Planned Parenthood Says State Senator

On this episode of Plain Talk, state Senator Janne Myrdal (R-Edinburg) talks about the objections she and other lawmakers share over North Dakota State University partnering with Planned Parenthood. “I believe in academic freedom,” Myrdal told me.

Video: President Barack Obama Says Harvesting Organs From Living Human Beings Is "Cruel"

Only, President Obama isn’t talking about the organ harvesting you’re thinking of: President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel” tradition that needed to stop. He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of
