    Following the death of a young elementary school teacher, Jennifer Morbelli, I had the sad duty of speaking at a press conference in Germantown, MD, in February 2013. Mrs. Morbelli died from complications from a late term (33 week) abortion performed by Dr. LeRoy Carhart. She experienced complications in between office visits, but neither her family nor the ER to which she was eventually admitted was able to locate Carhart. Her cause of death was determined to be an amniotic fluid embolism; the same condition that killed Christin Gilbert, another of Carhartís patients in 2005. Maryland, does not have a...

    Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is a national household name for one reason: abortion. She became the face of the pro-abortion movement when she stood up against a pro-life bill in the Texas legislature to stop late-term abortions. Preferring to keep abortions legal in the Lone Star State up to the day of birth, Davis infamously filibustered the bill and was eventually defeated and the bill became law. Since then, dozens of abortion clinics have either closed down or stopped doing abortions. After the filibuster, conservative activist Erick Erickson of Red State called David ďAbortion BarbieĒ on Twitter and the...

    You’d think conservatives Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are outspoken enough without liberal media sources having to lie about their words.

An AP report appearing on The Dallas Morning News, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, U.S. News and World Report and several other organizations cherry-picked and twisted statements from Sen.

Davis, who entered the national spotlight after a filibuster against a ban on most abortions after 20 weeks' gestation in May 2013, won nearly 80 percent of the vote in a primary she was expected to win with little difficulty. Money was one of Davis' big advantages in the primary. According to The Dallas Morning News, she raised $2.85 million from January 22 to February 24. Nearly $230,000 of that came from Emily's...

Attorney General Greg Abbott, the leading Republican candidate for governor, and state Senator Wendy Davis, the top Democratic Party candidate, were also expected to win by wide margins. Voting closes at 7 p.m. U.S. Central Time. Run-off elections will be held on May...

    AUSTIN, Texas ó Texas is holding the nation's first primary election Tuesday with a political free-for-all in Republican races that could push the state further right, though Democrats are calling it the next big electoral battleground. Republican Gov. Rick Perry has decided this would be his last of a record 14 years in office, and his looming exit has set off a scramble resulting in the most open races in Texas in more than a decade. Republicans are favored to win them all come November ó including Perry's seat, despite Democrat Wendy Davis building a national profile and an early...

Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez took to YouTube on Thursday to deny all charges leveled by the boycotters and to deny at least one charge they havenít even made. ďRecently, various individuals and organizations announced their intention to boycott GS cookies this year, based on mistaken beliefs about our...

    AUSTIN, TX -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday condemned inflammatory remarks by Ted Nugent that resurfaced when the outspoken rocker this week joined Republican Greg Abbott's gubernatorial campaign. Nugent was quoted in an interview with Guns.com last month as calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel." He appeared with Abbott during two campaign stops Tuesday, a decision that Democratic opponent Wendy Davis called "repulsive." Perry said on CNN's "Situation Room" that Nugent making outrageous comments shouldn't surprise anyone. But he condemned his language about Obama. "I got a problem calling the president a mongrel. I do have a problem...

    February 18, 2014 (LiveAction) - Wendy Davis caught a lot of flack from her pro-abortion supporters after inexplicably claiming that she supported 20-week abortion bans. After a fair amount of unsurprising backlash, she quickly changed her position again, reiterating that sheís actually against 20-week abortion bans. The entire debacle started because she wanted to appeal to the rather conservative Texas voters, the majority of whom supported the bill she spent 11 hours filibustering. So she tried to talk out of both sides of her mouth, and it backfired on her. The Daily Beast ran an article, written by Keli Goff,...
