    PHILADELPHIA, PA—Rumors had been floating around the 2016 Democratic National Convention all week about a “special surprise speaker” set to address the crowd on its final day. That speaker turned out to be Kermit Gosnell, infamous abortion provider and barbaric serial killer of born-alive infants, who was beamed in to speak Thursday from the Huntingdon prison where he is currently serving life without the possibility of parole. After being introduced as “champion of women’s rights, martyr for the greater cause, and fearless liberator, Dr. Kermit Gosnell,” the audience erupted into a frenzied applause which lasted more than ten minutes.

    Actress Ashley Judd spoke during the Democratic National Convention this week about protecting the rights of sexual assault survivors like herself. Unfortunately, Judd also gave a passionate plea for legalized abortion on demand. The actress spoke during an event hosted by NARAL, a radical pro-abortion group that supports abortion, not just in the rare cases, but for any reason up until birth. Earlier in the week, NARAL president Ilyse Hogue proudly bragged about her abortion at the DNC as the crowd cheered. New York Magazine reports Judd told the NARAL “Men for Choice” crowd about how she became pregnant after...

    Millennials are often praised for their willingness to become activists for a cause. It’s laudable that people choose action over apathy. But there are dangerous consequences when we act without facts.We need fewer activists, more factivists.However, in a soundbite world where few choose to savor the meatier substance of truth, it’s scary how ill-equipped many are with buzzwords and bumper sticker mantras. If only technology were advanced enough for us to have no excuse to be manipulated by the gatekeepers—mainstream media, public education, politicians and even some pastors. If only there were a device that were smart enough to be...

    And I think that, so many times, white — non-college-education — educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose. --House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to Judy Woodruff in an interview Wednesday What Nancy Pelosi said isn't necessarily a new idea: the theory that white, working class men vote Republican because of social issues and -- from Democrats' perspective -- to the detriment of their economic interests. But it is worth taking a closer look...

    Reveling in the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down a Texas abortion law, a leading abortion rights activist on Monday cast the ongoing political battle as nothing short of a fight over "American values." Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, told a breakfast meeting of the Texas Democratic delegation that the "fight is not about abortion." Rather, she said, "this is a clash of fundamentally different ways of looking at the world." She then pointed to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and other top GOP leaders.

The group NARAL, once known as the National Abortion Rights Action League, went so far as to change its name to NARAL Pro-Choice America so its supporters and allies could avoid saying the a-word.

    Another election, another pro-abortion “Catholic” on the democrat ticket. Hillary Clinton has named Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia as her vice-presidential pick, making this the fourth consecutive election to see a Catholic nominated to one of the top two spots by the democrats.  Of course, like almost every other democrat who claims to be Catholic and aspires to any political office higher than deputy street cleaner, Kaine has removed his soul, slapped a “personally opposed” label on it, and sold it outright to Satan. Oh, that crosses the line does it?  How dare I judge someone’s soul? You know...

    In the America I grew up in, the “liberals” were content to use government coercion to confiscate people’s money so they could spend it on their panoply of social engineering and vote-buying projects. They got to compel people to “join” Social Security, subsidize National Public Radio, pay for legions of needless bureaucrats in offices not authorized under the Constitution, bail out political cronies who cried “We’re too big to fail!” and so on. That kind of “liberalism” was bad enough, but the disease has of late developed new and far more vicious strains. Those involve attacks on Americans for not...

Seeing that Hillary Clinton is a radically pro-abortion candidate and seeing that the Democratic platform reinforces those radical views, can a Christian vote for Hillary in good conscience?

If the mass killings and Islamic terror attacks are unspeakably evil, and they most certainly are, then how evil are we as a nation for killing 58 million of our own babies since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973? The truth is that we are a nation full of mass killers, and those that celebrate our slaughter are elected to the highest offices in...

Ayanna Pressley, a Boston city councilor at-large, said the issue of men who identify as women getting abortions is all about "elevated consciousness." . . When asked if trans women are "being denied their reproductive rights" Pressley was stumped. "You got me on that one."

The prosecutor, who had been the target of outrage when the charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were filed last winter, asked for the dismissal on Tuesday, and the request quickly was granted by the judge in the case. The videos revealed Planned Parenthood executives explaining how they could adjust abortion procedures to save the body parts requested by the undercover videographers, who were posing...

Five years later, the White House referred to the Hyde Amendment while defending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Now, the Democrats’ party platform is calling for repeal of the measure. According to a new poll, Americans are solidly opposed to public funding of abortion, including nearly half of voters who support abortion rights, and at least four out of 10 Democrats.

Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    Millions of Americans have a profound concern over abortion – they understand it as the killing of an innocent unborn child – which is a very serious matter. Federal laws have protected conscientious objections to such taking of innocent life over many years, ever since Roe v. Wade. Americans fundamentally understand that since Roe v. Wade, abortion is legal, but they also understand that some people have a right not to be involved in abortions— and that their conscience rights are what need further protection. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “[n]o provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than...

    ... Our Constitution specifies that no person shall be deprived of their life without due process. So the bill's provisions allowing abortions to be performed without any due process is on its face unconstitutional. The Supreme Court, in Roe opinion, opined that the unborn child is not a person. That's a legal fiction. When Roe opinion was written, it was commonly thought that before you or I became human, we went through various stages of biological development. "Ontogeny recapitulates Phylogeny" was the popular phrase taught to schoolchildren as scientific fact -- that we each start as a tadpole-like creature and...

    Prescription drug prices continue to climb, putting the pinch on consumers. Some older Americans appear to be seeking an alternative to mainstream medicines that has become easier to get legally in many parts of the country. Just ask Cheech and Chong. Research published Wednesday found that states that legalized medical marijuana — which is sometimes recommended for symptoms like chronic pain, anxiety or depression — saw declines in the number of Medicare prescriptions for drugs used to treat those conditions and a dip in spending by Medicare Part D, which covers the cost on prescription medications. Because the prescriptions for...

    WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court has ruled that consumers must be allowed to buy certain types of health insurance that do not meet the stringent standards of the Affordable Care Act, deciding that the administration had gone beyond the terms of federal law. The court struck down a rule issued by the Obama administration that barred the sale of such insurance as a separate stand-alone product. “Disagreeing with Congress’s expressly codified policy choices isn’t a luxury administrative agencies enjoy,” the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said on Friday in a decision that criticized...

    Opinions Lib vs non lib(Weekly debates in paper) The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear a case involving religious freedom and the pharmacy profession. This lets stand a Washington state law requiring pharmacies to dispense all federally approved drugs — including so-called morning-after birth control pills that some pharmacists object to for religious reasons. Was this the right decision? What are the proper limits to religious freedom? Contorted logic ------------------------- Ben BoychukThe wrong job? Let’s get one thing straight: Religious freedom isn’t a hall pass from the obligations of citizenship. If you don’t want to be a pharmacist who...
  • No-Gun List? How About a No-Abort List?

    The federal government needs to compile a list of women who shouldn’t be allowed to get abortions. The criteria for getting on the list must be flexible. If an official at, say, the NIH or FBI think that a woman should be a mother for some reason or other, he or she can block an abortion. Maybe the woman has great genes or a high IQ or the sorts of financial resources we need in parents. Let’s leave that decision where it belongs: in the hands of the government.

    An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers. Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it. They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color”...

    I have an idea. The federal government needs to compile a list of women who shouldn't be allowed to get abortions. The criteria for getting on the list must be flexible. If an official at, say, the NIH or FBI think that a woman should be a mother for some reason or other, he or she can block an abortion. Maybe the woman has great genes or a high IQ or the sorts of financial resources we need in parents. Let's leave that decision where it belongs: in the hands of the government.

    We're Evil! Get It?: Pro-abortion humor is lacking in irony by Daniel Clark San Diego abortionist Robert Santella decided to have some fun with a young protestor named Zephaniah Mel outside his clinic one day, so he walked up and breathed directly into Mel's face while growling demonically, with just inches between the two. "Stinky breath," he explained, while holding out a cup of coffee for Mel’s camera phone to see. Then, he reached out with a pair of scissors in his other hand, as if he were threatening to stab Mel in the neck with them. With Santella continuing...

    Leftist views have increasingly dominated American college campuses to the point that many universities now consider the mere mention of conservative values an aggressive act that warrants counseling. One page on the official website of Virginia’s Longwood University, however, shows just how cloistered liberals have become in the realm of higher education. A slideshow on the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Resources page includes numerous social justice buzzwords, including a denouncement of so-called “invalidations.”

    In one of the most disturbing pieces of evidence yet, a U.S. Congressional panel found that an abortion facility may have provided aborted babies’ brains to a summer camp for youth in New Mexico. The horrific detail was part of a larger body of evidence that the U.S. Congressional Select Panel on Infant Lives sent to the New Mexico Attorney General this week. The evidence indicates that the University of New Mexico and the Southwestern Women’s Options abortion clinic may have broken a state law that prohibits the gifting of aborted babies’ body parts. Included in the evidence were sections...

    Alvin Toffler, the far-seeing futurist who predicted humanity's rising anxiety with digital and technological progress in his hugely influential 1970 book "Future Shock," has died at the age of 87, his consulting company confirmed Wednesday. Toffler — who is also credited with having coined the term "information overload" to describe people's struggle to keep up with exponentially expanding data — died Monday night at his home in Los Angeles, Toffler Associates said in a statement it released at the request of Toffler's widow, Heidi Toffler. No cause of death was given. Alvin Toffler during a talk at the Astrobiology Roadmap...
