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

    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?

    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...

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.

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.

Aren’t these matters determined by the Michigan Legislature and federal and state appellate courts?

No one--NO ONE--considers the baby. One person who kept her child mentions that the Planned Parenthood counselor told her she "must" get an abortion. Another said that she had no idea she could love someone like she loves her children, which was the best argument against terminating the pregnancy anyone probably could have...

    Adam Gopnik is a gifted essayist and writer whose contributions, often published in The New Yorker, are almost always thoughtful and interesting. Nevertheless, one of his most recent writings is deeply disturbing, and at the deepest level. Reflecting on the debate between Vice President Joseph Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan, Gopnik registered alarm at “something genuinely disturbing and scary” that had been said by Paul Ryan. Gopnik first complained that Biden and Ryan should not have even been asked about the role their Roman Catholic faith plays in their thinking, specifically on the issue of abortion. Gopnik then wrote: “Paul...

    I can't count the number of times I've debated liberals on my show who responded to the confrontation by effortlessly and seamlessly turning themselves into conservatives. This is because it is much easier to shape-shift than to have to defend or explain their irrational positions on issues or their indefensible beliefs. This is exactly what President Obama did in Debate II at Hofstra University. Suddenly Obama became the champion of the middle class and small business in spite his lack of any identifiable initiative on their behalf in his four years as president. Suddenly Obama becomes the champion of tax...

    HEMPSTEAD, NY, October 16, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – CNN’s Candy Crowley, who will moderate this evening’s presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, has a history of support for Planned Parenthood and abortion, according to a compilation put together by the Media Research Center (MRC).  As moderator, Crowley has the opportunity to exercise bias in tonight’s proceedings in a powerful, unseen way: she will select the questions the candidates must answer. According to an analysis performed by MRC, since the first town hall debate in 1992 moderators have selected liberal questions over conservative questions by a margin of two-to-one....

    The French national health-care system is called Sécurité Sociale. It is currently running a $13 billion deficit, but President François Hollande has some ideas about a new direction for the program. For starters, in 2013, it will start covering the cost of abortion entirely. That’s right: If you get an abortion in France, the “government” will pick up the tab and it won’t cost you a dime. But in the name of fiscal responsibility, the president will pay for the new spending by taxing seniors. Hes planning on imposing a tax of 0.15 percent on retirees, which will double in...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Oct. 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Bishop of Colorado Springs is making headlines after he insisted that Vice President Joe Biden, a pro-abortion Catholic, “should know” he shouldn’t receive Communion if a campaign stop brings him to his diocese. “He should know, and I would do everything I could do to make sure that he knows, he ought not to be receiving Communion,” Bishop Michael Sheridan told the Colorado Springs Gazette earlier this month. “It’s clear to me that the Code of Canon Law, Canon 915, says that a Catholic politician who publicly espouses positions that are contrary,...

    PEMBROKE, Ontario, Oct. 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After Ontario’s Education Minister shocked Catholics last week by declaring that under the law their schools should not be teaching that abortion is wrong, the Bishop of Pembroke insists that the Church has no intention of letting the government define the Catholic faith. The Church will “defend her legitimate autonomy from outside organizations which attempt to define the content of Roman Catholic teaching,” Bishop Michael Mulhall stated in a letter to parishes on Oct. 11th. “As a Bishop of the Catholic Church, this is a sacred obligation and a joyful mission which was...

    In the vice presidential debate, the two candidates, both Roman Catholics, were asked about their religious beliefs, how they impact the candidates' political positions and specifically about abortion. This was the response of Vice President Joe Biden: "My religion defines who I am. And I've been a practicing Catholic my whole life. And it has particularly informed my social doctrine. Catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who -- who can't take care of themselves, people who need help. "With regard to abortion, I accept my church's position on abortion as a -- what we call de fide...

    A popular Christian blogger says he's voting for Mitt Romney and is challenging notions that Christians should sit out this year's election or that they shouldn't vote for the GOP presidential candidate because he's a Mormon. In a series of blog posts, Frank Turk listed several reasons on Pyromaniacs why he's voting for and endorsing a "Mormon son of a Mormon who was not very conservative in Massachusetts and has not demonstrated very safely-right ideology in governing in the past." One of those reasons is abortion. Turk recognized that there are some Christians who will either try to vote for...
