  • McCain Helps Push Romney’s Mourdock Headaches Into Day Two

    10/24/2012 11:06:35 PM PDT · by Arthurio · 39 replies
    EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO OCTOBER 24, 2012, 11:01 PM 8102 If Mitt Romney was hoping the Richard Mourdock story he’s deeply entwined in would go away fast, he apparently didn’t get the memo to one of his top surrogates. Just as Democrats and the Obama campaign began amping up their effort to highlight Romney’s ties to Mourdock after the Indiana Senate candidate uttered his claim that pregnancies caused by rape are “something that God intended to happen” — and Romney and the Republicans worked to put the moment behind them — John McCain sat down with CNN to throw a wrench in...

    Barack Obama likes to answer questions – from John Stewart, from the gang on “The View,” from David Letterman, from a fawning media establishment. But the nation witnessed what happened when Mitt Romney asked him a few tough questions. He crumbled like an empty suit. I doubt very much if Obama will ever allow me to interview him – or even ask one tough question. After all, who am I? I’m only a guy running the first and largest independent news source on the Internet, with an audience of 8 million. I’m only a guy who before launching WND 15...

    “The only church that illuminates is the one that burns,” they said. Five hundred pro-abortion women spray painted the walls of the Cathedral, ridiculed the Catholic Church, and attacked a group of Catholics with paint, spittle, insults and blows. Watch the video (somebody know how to insert video? MUST watch) The incident took place on Sunday night, October 7 during the 27th National Women’s Conference in Posadas, Argentina when a group of about 500 activists from various feminist groups vented their rage against the Church for its position on abortion and same-sex “marriage.” Although the aggression led to the cancelation...

    Co-authored with John Jalsevac Florida, October 23, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Nearly 40 years ago, as a young, pregnant woman, Norma McCorvey played an instrumental part in the Supreme Court decision that brought legal abortion to America. Now McCorvey, the ‘Roe’ in the Roe v. Wade case, has released an ad urging voters not to vote for Obama. McCorvey became a Christian in 1995 and has since repudiated her role in Roe v. Wade, campaigning for its reversal. The ad is set to air in Florida, and is backed by Randall Terry, the pro-life activist who is running for office on...

    October 24, 2012 (HLIWorldWatch.org) - In a recent video interview with Catholic News Service, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia said that the position of the Democrat Party on abortion has “gotten worse” over time because Catholics within the party haven’t taken a strong moral stand and shown a willingness to abandon the Democrat Party. “I think many of the Democrats have [taken] Democrat Catholic votes for granted because they’ll go with them no matter what the party position might be on abortion,” Archbishop Chaput said. “That’s why the position of the Democrat Party has gotten worse, and worse, and...

    When I think about the sound and fury swirling around Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Republican vying for a U.S. Senate seat, my thoughts turn to Rebecca Kiessling. In a debate this week with Democrat Rep. Joe Donnelly, Mourdock defended his opposition to abortion even in cases in which a pregnancy has resulted from rape. “I think,” said Mourdock, emotionally, “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something God intended to happen.” Rebecca, I suspect, would absolutely agree with Mourdock. Because the Michigan woman was conceived, she attests, “out of a brutal rape at knife point...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood lies to women: “We don’t have any type of procedure where a woman would receive an injury” Oh really? No type of procedure where a woman could get injured? What about the 14 documented cases of serious medical injuries at Planned Parenthood clinics in the past 24 months? What about the reported 10 ambulance calls for botched abortions at Planned Parenthood in the last 20 months? But remember, no women get injured at Planned Parenthood. Ever. Planned Parenthood must call those ambulances for practice runs or something. Those women being carried out on stretchers must be...

    NEW ALBANY, Ind. — Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday when a woman is impregnated during a rape, "it’s something God intended." Mourdock, who’s been locked in a tight race with Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly, was asked during the final minutes of a debate whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest. "I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. October 22, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Three years after she appeared to endorse the eugenic aspects of abortion, a new report claims Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has backpedalled from the remarks that created an uproar in 2009. “Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of,” Ginsburg told Emily Bazelon of the New York Times in 2009. In a new follow-up piece, Bazelon writes that Justice Ginsburg “made it clear today that the issue she...

    New York, October 22, 2012 (LifeSiteNews) – New York City will recruit and train “escorts” to volunteer at abortion facilities throughout the city, New York City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn announced Friday. Starting November 1, the escorts will guide women past protesters at abortion centers, making it easier for them to access abortion. “Offensive actions against a woman’s right to choose will not be tolerated in our city in any borough or any neighborhood,” said Quinn, who announced the city-backed escort initiative at a City Hall press conference alongside local abortion activists. The escorts are being recruited...

    FULL TITLE: Federal government refers women to Planned Parenthood and links to site condemning pregnancy resource centers Yep, you read that headline correctly. WomensHealth.gov is a “Project of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health.” This federal site has a page with a pretty long title: “Pregnancy > Before you get pregnant: Information for all women > If you are sexually active.” And, near the bottom of the page, there’s a section called “Connect with other organizations.” Most of the organizations are generally well-recognized medical groups – like the American Academy of Family Physicians. But...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana stepped between women and their physicians when it enacted a law that blocked Medicaid funds for Planned Parenthood just because the organization provides abortions, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday. The ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago effectively upheld decisions by a district judge and a Medicaid review panel that found the 2011 law denied patients the right to choose their own health care provider.

    On Nov. 6, Washtenaw County voters will fill the first vacant circuit court judge position in nearly two decades. With your vote, you may help to decide the futures of dozens, if not hundreds, of young women dealing with unwanted pregnancies, even those resulting from rape or incest. How can this be? Aren’t these matters determined by the Michigan Legislature and federal and state appellate courts? In fact, whether a minor obtains an abortion may be determined by the decision of a single judge, acting under a state law that gives virtually total discretion to the judge. There is a...

    CBS newsman Bob Schieffer will host the third debate tonight between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.The first two debates prompted outrage from pro-life conservatives over their bias — from biased questions and Romney twice having less time to talk during the debate to the moderator interrupting Romney more or letting Obama get the last word in more often.Voters expecting a more fair and impartial debate this time around will be sorely disappointed — although it might be for the better that the debate is primarily expected to be focused on foreign policy issues. Schieffer made it clear earlier this...

    I made a visit this past weekend to the University of California, Irvine to attend the Medjugorje Peace Conference, a gathering of very traditional, very conservative Catholics. The standout speaker during the two-day conference was Monsignor Jim Lisante, pastor of Our Lady Of Lourdes Parish in Massapequa, New York, whose homilies are available on ITunes (free of charge), and who often appears on FOX News to speak on matters of faith. The Monsignor offered the most scathing critique of President Obama’s social policies I’ve heard from any cleric in America – Catholic, Protestant, Jewish or other.. He began by recounting...
