  • Hillary "Horrified" by Trump's Abortion Comments [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 23 Oct 2016 | John Semmens
    At this week's debate, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton professed herself "horrified" by GOP rival Donald Trump's denunciation of partial-birth abortions as "ripping babies out of the womb" and criticizing the practice as "terrible" and "unacceptable." "Granted, the elimination of these near term fetuses is a gruesome procedure," she admitted. "But what's more gruesome is Trump's attempt to use these tragic medical interventions as a scare tactic to overturn the rights established by Roe v. Wade. For too long state legislatures across the country unfairly prohibited or restricted a woman's right to an abortion. Fortunately, in 1973 the Supreme Court...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton... suggested during the third presidential debate that China had already ended the practice of forced abortion. On Wednesday evening, Clinton defended abortion rights and reiterated her promise to appoint Supreme Court justices who lean on the pro-choice side. The Democrat also said she has "been to countries where governments either forced women to have abortions, like they used to do in China." "With all her experience as former Secretary of State, it is untrue and deeply disappointing for Hillary Clinton to put the Chinese government's practice of forced abortion in the past," said Littlejohn in...

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada, October 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Before the lights were out on Wednesday night's final presidential debate stage, partisan groups were frantically spinning candidates' words and "fact-checking" candidates' claims. It has become common for "fact-checking" groups to arbitrate what is true and what is false. But the "fact-checkers" themselves are often biased and do not always present the truth.  Such is the case with some "fact-checking" outlets Thursday claiming that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lied Wednesday night when he said Democratic rival Hillary Clinton supports unrestricted abortion throughout pregnancy.

    Now that we are done with the presidential debates, with just a few weeks until Election Day, the choice for the country could not be more stark. Hillary Clinton promises to continue the economic and foreign policy path of Barack Obama, which has weakened our country and emboldened our enemies. By expanding government spending, forgiving student loan debt, granting amnesty to millions of illegals, raising taxes, continuing with Obamacare, Madam President would massively pile on debt to a nation already leveraged to the hilt. As for Donald Trump, he will streamline government, cut taxes, incentivize businesses to bring assets back...

    While the tradition of the Alfred E.

I understand that the dinner is to raise money and everyone tries to...

    Tonight, during the presidential debate, pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended partial birth abortions on babies late in pregnancy. She said that she didn’t think the government should be stepping in to protect unborn children that late in pregnancy. Despite factual information showing that partial birth abortions happen in most cases on healthy babies and healthy mothers, Clinton claimed that killing unborn children in partial birth abortions was necessary because of supposed special cases where abortion was necessary to save the life or health of the mother — even though considerable research has documented the fact that abortions often hurt...

ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT From the pro-life perspective, it was particularly useful that Wallace said he would “drill down” on the question of the Supreme Court “because the next president will almost certainly have at least one appointment and likely or possibly two or three appointments which means that you will in effect determine the balance of the court for what could be the next quarter century.”And so he did. The results were classic Hillary...

    n signing a bill that criminalizes the distribution of a “confidential” video of a “health-care provider,” Gov. Jerry Brown has at least dispensed with the notion that California’s Democratic leadership cares at all about free-speech rights. The new law, which could lead to jail time for violators, is the latest troubling example of how tenuous America’s political rights may be when one political party controls virtually every apparatus of power. Assembly Bill 1671 is a direct response to an activist group that last year released disturbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials who were, according to a July 2015 report...

And – contrary to the false claims made by Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during Wednesday evening’s debate – few, if any, of those abortions occurred because of the “life and health of the mother” or “something terrible” being discovered about the pregnancy.

Clinton reiterated that her priorities when naming judges to the bench included the court not reversing Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in 1973. Trump pledged to appoint...

    Christians across America must express their outrage at the Ninth Circuit Court's ruling to uphold California's so called 'Reproductive FACT Act.' This decision will require 150 pro-life crisis pregnancy clinics across the state to promote abortion services to the women they serve. Since Roe v.

They are vitally important in the fight to promote a culture of life, adoption and health. This ruling now forces these clinics to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs, and it is...

  • The Pro-Life Case for Hillary Clinton (and other Democratic Presidential Nominees)

    Every election cycle, pro-lifers are subjected to a seemingly endless parade of editorials and opinion pieces claiming that pro-life interests would be well served by electing a presidential candidate who supports legal abortion. This year has proven to be no exception. In August, Evangelical blogger Rachel Held Evans wrote a widely circulated article encouraging pro-lifers to vote for Hillary Clinton. This week in The Christian Post, Eric Sapp wrote a similar piece entitled “Hillary Clinton is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion.” The arguments made by these commentators are almost identical every election cycle. Furthermore, they have not aged...

    This year we mourned the death of Elie Wiesel, eyewitness, survivor, and chronicler of the Holocaust. His first book, Night, was published thanks to the lobbying of Catholic novelist Francois Mauriac, the greatest French writer of the last century. (Do read this wrenching account of the meeting between the battered young Jewish refugee and the grand old man of letters.) Mauriac lived through the hateful politics of the 1920s and 30s, and the Nazi occupation—throughout which he aided the Resistance. And Mauriac bore witness to the various shades of evil that had allowed so many of his countrymen, patriotic Frenchmen...

    Putting convicted criminals to death is an issue Sen. Tim Kaine said he had to “grapple” with when he served as governor of Virginia. Kaine chose the death penalty, not abortion, as the issue that posed the biggest conflict with his Roman Catholic faith. “For me, the hardest struggle in my faith life was, the Catholic Church is against the death penalty and so am I,” Kaine said at Tuesday night’s debate. “But I was governor of a state, and the state law said that there was a death penalty for crimes if the jury determined them to be heinous....

    (I posted this in Chat, let me know if incorectly done) It just dawned on me that pregnant women receive no child support, and that the democrat stance on abortion with Planned Parenthood is a language obstructing that. A Compassionate Conservative like Pence should make the case

    ( – Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) introduced a resolution last week to “recognize the importance of Planned Parenthood’s contributions to women’s health care and reproductive rights in America over the last 100 years.” The resolution voiced strong support for the nation’s largest abortion provider, declaring that “the organization remains an essential thread in the fabric of society, and it will be key in the next century to assisting millions of women, men, and young people in accessing the health care they need and deserve, no matter who they are or where they live.” “Planned Parenthood should not be defunded, attacked,...

    Forty-three years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled abortion to be a constitutional right. Three years later, Illinois Republican Rep. Henry Hyde pushed Congress into banning almost all federal funds from being used for abortions. That ban, an annual budget rider known as the Hyde Amendment, has saved more than two million children from death in the womb, according to a new report from Charlotte Lozier Institute Associate Scholar Dr. Michael New.Naturally, Democrats want it gone. From my article at The Stream: The Democratic Party’s platform promises to repeal of the Amendment because it “impede[s] a woman’s access to abortion,”...
