    ...news reports were filled with stories concerning the events which occurred in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania involving one Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell. He has been criminally charged for the commission of eight murders. Seven children were killed by this man after they were born. This butcher executed them by utilizing a procedure he referred to as "snipping". He severed their spinal cord with surgical scissors which he inserted into the back of their necks. The eighth charge involved the death of one of the mothers from an apparent overdose of anesthetics administered during one of the executions. ...The truth is what...
  • Roe v Wade - celebrating judicial activism

    01/13/2011 6:29:13 AM PST · by razorsharp · 5 replies
    Today, January 13th, marks the thirty-eighth anniversary of the the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in the case of Roe v. Wade. And despite of the media's attempt to elevate the anniversary date to red-letter status, the country is still sharply divided over the Court's decision. In fact, the number one question looming over any nominee to sit on the Supreme Court, well, any nominee by a Republican administration, is "how will they rule regarding Roe v. Wade?" So, did the Court rule judiciously in regards to the Constitution, or expeditiously in regards to an agenda? Let's go back and take...

    US women's groups Thursday were bracing for a fight over abortion rights and gender equality with the new conservative majority in Congress. "We now face an anti-choice majority and a new speaker of the House who will threaten to roll back hard-fought progress for women," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the largest women's group in the United States. Republicans by Wednesday had picked up 60 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives, well more than the 39 they needed for a majority. At least 49 of the newcomers to the House are opposed to...

    President Barack Obama declared today that the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays in the military “will end and it will end on my watch,” even as his Justice Department was appealing a judge’s ruling that would have allowed homosexuals to serve openly in the military. Speaking at a town hall meeting put on jointly by BET, MTV and Country Music Television, Obama also said a person’s sexuality is not a choice. “I don’t profess to be an expert – this is a lay person’s opinion – but I don’t think it’s a choice,” he said. “People are born...

    On a recent weekday at Annunciation B.V.M. Church in Havertown, a Mass was celebrated to pray for and honor police officers — both those on the front lines and those who have fallen in the line of duty. It was an emotional service, especially given the number of police who have been brutally slain in the last several years. The thought of a lonely and distraught spouse raising young children — including some unborn who never even glimpsed their father — was so heartbreaking as to be unthinkable. The worst part is that there’s no rational way to explain, let...

    Invited to discuss recent Gallup Poll numbers showing only 11 percent of Americans are confident in Congress, Democratic strategist Dick Morris appeared on Fox News Channel's "On The Record with Greta Van Susteren" last Friday and cited that lack of confidence as a reason for states to take more bold action after possible GOP victories in November. The former Clinton-aide suggested that with 37 governor races up for grabs and polls tending towards a significant GOP victory in the works, school choice initiatives will be suggested as a cost-saving measure for states.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – President Barack Obama on Thursday cast upcoming elections as a choice between the party that caused the economic meltdown and the one that's fixing it, seizing on a populist, sharply partisan theme for the critical November midterms. "We don't have to guess how the other party will govern because we're still living with the results from the last time they governed," Obama said at a fundraiser for Missouri Democratic Senate hopeful Robin Carnahan in Kansas City. "It's a choice between falling backward and moving forward." Helped by recent gaffes by Republicans, Obama has arrived at the...

    Few organizations are as consistently liberal as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), especially when it comes to matters of church and state. The ADL devotes an entire page on its Web site (www.adl.org) to church-state separation and wants the "wall" between the two to remain as high and impenetrable as possible, believing that to lower it would have a negative effect on both. Which makes it remarkable that the executive committee of ADL's Philadelphia chapter has voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution endorsing vouchers that would allow children in underperforming schools in poor neighborhoods to escape to schools that would...

    When the darkness and fog cleared on August 29, 1776, the mud soaked trenches were empty. General George Washington had slipped away during the night, living to fight another day. The Battle of Long Island was a clear British victory, but it was a lesson learned in the pursuit of liberty that the American conservative knows, and a lesson that Americans of every race, color and creed should know. So, on August 27, 1776, General Washington arrived in New York, overseeing the construction of new fortifications in Brooklyn Heights. The men found it hard to warm their food or keep...

Republicans who say the law forces people to buy insurance are lying for political gain.” “The law gives people several options,” Schultz pointed out. “First, and of course, most recommended, is that they may buy insurance coverage. A second option is that they may pay a fine. And the third option is that they may go to prison. So, those who maintain that we have eliminated choice are just plain wrong.”

The Dietary Supplement and Safety Act would increase regulation over the availability of many vitamins and supplements available to consumers in the “free market”. “It is big government that has a proven track record of not protecting the public. And it is big government that is seeking to take away yet another individual freedom, the right to choose one’s own treatment,” said JBS.org,...

The education committee is due to consider the measure Thursday.

The topic of abortion is one of those controversial subjects, similar to evolution versus creationism, or discussing the pros and cons of the death penalty as a deterrent to violent crime.

For example, they talk incessantly about "choice", as in a woman's right to choose. Or "choosing a life style", which is code for appeals to the gay and lesbian community. But even though the LPDs preach "tolerance" and "diversity" in terms of certain other "choices" they are utterly intolerant. School...

Now that the Left is demanding that the government be given control of our healthcare, does this mean that they no longer believe in this supposed right? If the government can tell us, as Mr. Obama himself suggested, to take pills instead of having an operation, doesn’t that violate this “sacred” right the Left has insisted on so vehemently? If the medical procedure of abortion is a right, then...

Officials say this means Ricky Ray Anderson will not be charged with the alleged murder of Ulmer's child. According to the state medical examiner's office, Ulmer's unborn baby was 10 weeks old. And Prosecuting Attorney John Threet says since the unborn child still had two weeks to go before Arkansas law recognizes "it" as a person, Anderson cannot be charged with the murder of Ulmer's unborn child. "If the unborn child is less than 12 weeks, then there's not...

    Lia, the twelve-year-old girl who made headlines for presenting a pro-life speech in a school speech competition against tremendous opposition from her teachers earlier this year, gave her exceptional oration to the 12,000 strong crowd at the National March For Life in Ottawa, Canada last week. Lia, who is from Ontario, adapted her speech for the March for Life slightly, adding, “Every day, 115,000 are being put to death through abortion. 115,000. Look around at this great sea of people. This is only about 10,000 people. Every two hours, this amount of children are killed because of abortion.” Lia became...

    A national coalition of pro-family groups are urging parents to keep their students home this coming Friday in protest of the annual "Day of Silence," when students vow silence to bring attention to the discrimination of gay students. Over 20 Christian-based conservative groups have called for the massive walkout from middle and high schools participating the April 17 event, arguing that the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)'s sponsored event politicizes the classroom to support the belief that homosexuality is moral. They include state chapters of American Family Association, Concerned Women for America, Illinois Family Institute, Liberty Council and...

    A £3,000 blank wall built for teenage graffiti artists by a council was painted by a disgruntled taxpayer with the slogan: "I paid my tax and all I got was this lousy wall". The 6ft high by 30ft long wall was installed so youths could practice their graffiti artwork without vandalising local property. But ahead of its opening on October 31 a fed-up resident sneaked behind a security fence ....

    Michael Steele is not pro-life. And he must be replaced as the Chairman of the GOP as quickly as possible. Steele just did an interview with GQ which is quoted in The Politico. The key part of the conversation is this. It's shocking and I trust you'll agree that Michael Steele's days as GOP Chairman are numbered: Steele: The choice issue cuts two ways. You can choose life, or you can choose abortion. You know, my mother chose life. So, you know, I think the power of the argument of choice boils down to stating a case for one or...
  • Get Your Red Hot Abortions….

    Having watched the waves of hate mail flood in from the last video, I’ve decided to take on a more mellow topic this week in “abortion.” What can I say, I’m thoughtful in that way. Ever notice how leftists make abortions seem like an “event”? It’s presented as a sort of “fun for the whole family” affair. That’s why they opt to use words and phrases such as “choice” and “women’s health” instead of “kill” or “jamming scissors.” I say, we flip it on them. Instead of calling them “liberals,” let’s call them “Baby-killing, family-destroying, self-serving, Tim Robbins-loving, Biden-muzzling, socialist...

    Actor Gary Graham knew that by writing about his personal experience and rejection of abortion, he would be incurring the ire of not a few among the Hollywood elite. Yet a blog column posted last Tuesday by the seasoned actor, known most recently for his roles as Ambassador Soval in the TV series "Star Trek: Enterprise" and Capt. Ingles on "J.A.G.", took an unflinching look at truths almost entirely ignored by those in the Hollywood establishment. "I’m going to say what millions know in the front of their brains, and many, many more millions know in the depths of their...
  • Liberals help Planned Parenthood exterminate Blacks; others they deem “unfits”

    Planned Parenthood’s efforts to exterminate the babies of those it sees as “unfit” to reproduce will be celebrated today by people that can only be identified properly as evil bastards. The liberal media-Hollywood-political gliterati work tirelessly to fulfill Margaret Sanger’s dreams of murdering millions of Black, Hispanic, Jewish and Roman Catholic babies. These morally bankrupt phonies probably haven’t a clue about the link between Sanger and the Nazis – that’s the real Nazis not Republicans they call Nazis. They show up with their checkbooks “religiously.” Since Roe, Liberals have facilitated the extermination of more than 49 million infants, including 15...
  • The Freedom of Choice Act: Obama's First Act as President?

    Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., the Democratic President-Elect, became a co-sponsor of the 2007 Senate version of the Freedom of Choice Act (S. 1173) which would establish the right to abortion as a fundamental right (like the right to free speech) and wipe away EVERY RESTRICITION, including the current State and Federal laws currently supported by nearly 74% of Americans today. This means that there would no longer be: 1. A ban on Partial Birth Abortions. 2. Requirements that women be given information about the risks of getting an abortion. 3. Requirements that only licensed physicians perform abortions. 4. Requirements that...
  • John McCain right choice for president

    Aberdeen American News ^ | November 2, 2008
    The American News endorses John McCain for president. Clearly, this country is aching for change, and we think that McCain provides the right opportunity for a fundamental leadership change. McCain has demonstrated better than any other sitting senator an unabashed willingness to forge a path less taken. He eschews party politics and has found common ground with compatible colleagues countless times, regardless of party affiliation. That kind of collaborative effort is what should be the rule in Congress; too often it is the exception. Today, at this juncture of our country's history, we see McCain as a leader who can...
