    Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, delivered the closing prayer at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C, asking Americans to respect God's institutions, the dignity of life, and the basic liberties afforded to all. "Grant us the courage to defend it, life, without which no other rights are secure," Dolan prayed at the convention. "We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected." Related The Catholic Church has had a number of issues with President Barack Obama's administration this past year. Official Catholic teachings affirm the traditional...

    In his convention speech in Charlotte, President Obama vowed to block the Republican Medicare reform plan because “no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.” But back in Washington, his Health and Human Services Department is launching a pilot program that would shift up to 2 million of the poorest and most-vulnerable seniors out of the federal Medicare program and into private health insurance plans overseen by the states. The administration has accepted applications from 18 states to participate in the program, which would give states money to purchase managed-care plans for...

    What does racism have to do with being pro-life? Well, for many pro-abortion fanatics, it has everything to do with it. To them, minorities having more children and less abortions is a bad thing and racist.It’s not racist, however, to target them for abortions. Mention that an overwhelming majority of abortion clinics are in urban neighborhoods, or that black women get a disproportionately higher number of abortions, and you’re racist. Show documented examples of racism at Planned Parenthood, and you’re racist.Say you want to abort black babies because they’re ugly and will grow up to be murderers, however, and there’s...

    Michelle Obama, in her speech to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last week, explained that her husband "believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care." If you're anything like me, you would like to believe the first lady on general principle. "Just say no to drugs"; "Read"; "Exercise": These are good messages that have come from first ladies, including this one. Life is more complicated than simple slogans, however, and in this particular narrative, she was putting a spin on the redefining of religious liberty that's occurred under...

    Democrats were not too happy that Timothy Cardinal Dolan admonished them about respecting human life and religious liberty during his closing benediction at the Democratic National Convention. On Twitter, hundreds of liberals vented their frustration with the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Below are a handful of the samples of F-bombs liberals dropped on the Catholic cardinal during and after his benediction. “Grant us the courage to defend life…waiting to be born, welcomed & protected,” he said, excoriating Democrats to support religious liberty as well in light of the controversial Obama HHS mandate that Catholics and pro-life...

    A deliberate effort is underway to rebrand Planned Parenthood as an integral provider of healthcare services, without which untold millions of women would lack basic medical care, or so the story goes. Thus, whenever any effort is made to cut off funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider and stalwart financier of leftist politicians, we’re told there is a “war on women.” But it’s not a “war on women” when a state simply places a higher priority on funds for true health services that Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform Take, for example, mammograms. Yes, mammograms. Perhaps there is no greater falsehood...

O’Reilly was blunt. “I have to tell you, I am stunned.

    Just 47% of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7 percentage points from his recent peak in April, while 49% rate him unfavorably. He’s numerically underwater in this group for the first time since February. The decline has occurred entirely among women registered voters – from 57%-39% favorable-unfavorable in April to a numerically negative 46%-50% now. That’s Obama’s lowest score among women voters – a focus of recent political positioning – in ABC/Post polls since he took office. On top of that, according to CNN’s latest poll, Romney’s lead among independents has...

    Large Record Linkage Studies Show Women More Likely to Die After Abortion, Not Childbirth * A new study of the medical records for nearly half a million women in Denmark reveals significantly higher maternal death rates following abortion compared to delivery. This finding has confirmed similar large-scale population studies conducted in Finland and the United States, but contradicts the widely held belief that abortion is safer than childbirth. By linking records from Denmark’s fertility and abortion registries to death registry records, the researchers examined death rates following the first pregnancy outcome for all women of reproductive age in Denmark over...

Pearl was diagnosed in utero with alobar holoprosencephaly (HPE), a neural disease in which the brain and facial features do not form completely. Usually, babies with HPE do not survive a full-term pregnancy. Or if they do, usually they die within hours or days of birth. Usually. Pearl Joy Brown is unusual. Some...

    Bart Stupak was a vital swing vote in the Obamacare debate 2 years ago. As a pro-life Democrat he could not support Obama’s signature initiative without some assurance that abortion would not be covered by the monstrous healthcare overhaul. Following an Executive Order signed by President Obama that supposedly ensured that abortion would not be covered, Stupak declared victory for the pro-life movement. This in spite of the fact that many had said the Executive Order was toothless and would not prevent anything. It seems Mr. Stupak has finally realized this.

    Occasionally, a columnist must issue an apology for something he wrote that, while seeming correct at the time, later proved to be misguided. Today, is one of those occasions where I must take the time to write a retraction concerning a column I wrote some time ago. Although it has been roughly four years since the column appeared, I am still compelled to offer an apology. The issue concerns the use of pictures of the aftermath of abortion and whether the pictures should be displayed on college campuses, which are obviously populated by scores of women who have, in...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The last time Alice Heiman participated in the Susan G. Komen walk in San Francisco to raise money for breast cancer, she gathered a group of friends and made a big trip from her home in Reno to support a cause close to her heart. This year, though, nine months after the national organization sparked outrage when it refused to fund Planned Parenthood, she's ignoring donation requests that keep popping up in her inbox and has no plans for a return trip. She's not alone. Just days before Sunday's 5k Race for the Cure along the Embarcadero...

    “I’m frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias,” a frustrated Newt Gingrich asserted on Sunday’s Meet the Press, citing two blatant examples. First: “Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism” in Vice President Joe Biden telling a black audience “if the Republicans win you will be ‘in chains’”? Second, President Obama “voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial birth abortion -- that’s a 20 percent issue,” a position which Democrats “couldn’t defend...for a day if it was...
  • Eastwood fails to make Republicans' day (Oz didn't like it-plus the fake car & yacht stories!)

    Just a day after Mitt Romney made the most important speech of his life, the edges of it are slipping away. You can remember some of the themes and Romney's wonderful chin and his big soft eyes. The rest is fading out. But Clint Eastwood, standing before a blank teleprompter, muttering at a chair - that is an image no one is going to forget soon. By 10pm on Thursday night, the 50,000 odd delegates, party members and reporters who had travelled to Florida for the Republican National Convention were tired. There had been 18 hours of speeches over three...

    When it comes to abortion, which political party’s views are more extreme? Unless you’ve spent the past week as a stowaway on NASA’s new Mars rover, the approved media answer is obvious: Republicans are the abortion fanatics. Between the furor over Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” gaffe and the GOP platform language calling for a constitutional amendment to undo Roe v. Wade, the Republicans have revealed themselves to be — as The New York Times editorialized on

    BRUSSELS, August 31, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Legal experts are expressing their concerns over the decision of the European Court of Human Rights this month that Italy’s law against eugenic screening of embryos conceived by in vitro fertilization must be overturned. The Strasbourg-based court said that Italy’s prohibition of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) was “incoherent” in the face of existing laws allowing abortion for eugenic purposes. It awarded a couple who had chosen to abort their child, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, 15,000 Euros. Italian commentators have pointed out that the court’s ruling shows a predisposition to accept eugenic abortion...

    A thought experiment: A living newborn baby is found abandoned. What would you do? Would you wonder what the mother's intentions were and base your actions on her decision? Would you walk away? Would you stand there and watch the newborn struggle? Would you kill the baby? Would you do whatever you could to help the child? I would suggest that if you put this question to just about anyone, they would choose the last answer. Responding to a baby with love is not just some unexplainable instinct. It's not just morally the right thing to do. It's how we're...
  • Illinois Infanticide Bill: Why wasn't it a bigger issue in 2008?

    Reasonable people can debate abortion, but how can anyone defend denying medical assistance to an aborted baby born alive? It should have been a bigger issue in 2008 and certainly in 2012. Link to a 2008 article: http://www.humanevents.com/2008/08/19/barack-obama-admits-he-supported-infanticide/

    The Circus? I’ve been working the night shift at the Media Research Center for the past week and given the reactions from MSNBC’s Matthews, Maddow, Schultz, Sharpton, and Hayes–I expect Abortion Fest 2012 the Democratic National Convention to be a nothing short of entertaining. If the fact checking failures, such as falsely slamming Paul Ryan for saying that the Janesville GM plant closed in April of ’09, were indicative of anything, it is that September 4th and proceeding seventy-two hours will be the most ludicrous the mainstream media has ever broadcasted to an American audience. Just look at how MSNBC...

    Thanks to one of my Facebook friends, I was just today alerted to the interview Romney gave CBS news on 8/27/2012. The video is here. In the interview, Romney says, "My position has been clear throughout this campaign. I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother." The health of the mother exception is universally recognized by authentic pro-lifers as a loophole you can drive Roe v. Wade through. Then Romney makes the following statement, clearly putting an end to any notion that he is pro-life in...
