FEATURE – Have you ever done a replica trip?  You know, a trip you plan in hopes of replicating some magical experience you had a child.  Think the movie “Vacation,” except without the R-rated scenes.

On the EDge: GOP fight with Planned Parenthood runs deep 

OPINION — The Republican Party has been gunning for Planned Parenthood for decades. Now, it seems, the GOP is latching onto a video that alleges wrongdoing on the part of the organization saying it supplies fetal tissue to researchers for profit.
