    Toronto police have arrested Jordan Hunt, a man who was caught on video allegedly kicking a young, female pro-life advocate Sunday in Toronto. A video of the incident that went viral earlier this week shows a male abortion activist roundhouse kicking a pro-life woman as she records her conversation with him. The woman later identified herself as Campaign Life Coalition Youth Coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette. Now, the pro-life group the victim Bissonnette was affiliated with has informed LifeNews that Hunt has been arrested. He has been charged with 8 counts of assault and 7 counts of criminal mischief, including an additional...

    The GOP tax reform bill known as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” came one important step closer to becoming law on Tuesday when the bill passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 227 to 203. No Democrats voted for the bill, of course. The party of big, centralized government isn’t for anyone keep more of their own money, other than perhaps illegal aliens and welfare recipients, and will never vote to cut anybody’s taxes. But not all Republicans voted for the bill either. Here are the 12 Republicans — all from high tax states — who joined...

    With a unanimous show of support, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith’s legislation, the Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Reauthorization Act (H.R. 2820), cleared its final hurdle and is on its way to the President for signature and enactment. Smith and lead co-sponsor Rep. Doris Matsui shepherded the bill through the House last summer with the support of Reps. David Jolly (R-FL) and Chaka Fattah (D-PA), and worked with Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Jack Reed (R-RI), Richard Burr (R-NC) and Al Franken (D-MN) who championed the bill in the Senate, making helpful modifications and sending it back to the House for one...

    After Ambassador J. Chris Stevens was killed in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not even know his name. New emails released today show that Ms. Clinton thought the Ambassador's name was "Chris Smith," and referred to him as such in two separate emails. The first, sent by Ms. Clinton from her secret "Hrod17" email at 11:38 pm, had the subject of "Chris Smith" and asked if the State Department should announce his death: In response, Cheryl Mills, the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton, did not correct...

    A handful of “pro-life” lawmakers have sabotaged a vote House Republican leaders planned for today to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on scientific evidence showing unborn babies feel pain in abortions. As LifeNews reported yesterday, Rep. Renee Ellmers of North Carolina along with Reps. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and Jackie Walorski of Indiana — each of whom have pro-life voting records — objected to a vote on the bill on the grounds that the language in the bill did not do enough to allow women who have been victimized by rape to have abortions. Together, they reportedly...

    Of the 112 plans available to members of Congress and their staff, 103 cover elective abortion, according to a recent analysis released by New Jersey Republican Rep. Chris Smith. According to Smith, a co-chair of the House Pro-Life Caucus, the availability of elective abortion coverage to Members and their staff amounts to taxpayer funding of the procedure, as members and staffers’ coverage is set to be subsidized by the government. “In the run-up to passage of Obamacare, Americans were repeatedly told and reassured by President Obama himself, including in a speech to a joint session of Congress in October 2009,...
  • Telling Secrets on [Obamacare's] Abortion Coverage

    10/09/2013 3:39:40 PM PDT · by rhema · 5 replies
    As Congress debates ObamaCare, one issue that almost stopped the law in 2009 -- yet still receives scant media coverage -- is the law's subsidies for abortion coverage. ObamaCare is funded through mandatory spending so as to avoid the Hyde Amendment, the provision which stops appropriated funds for the Department of Health and Human Services from paying for abortion or even subsidizing plans with abortion coverage. The President promised when the health care bill passed that it would not cover abortion, but like FRC warned during the debate over ObamaCare, buried deep within the 2,700 pages is language Nancy Pelosi...

    "Mr. Speaker, will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end? "Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how—and how often—abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies? "Will Americans ever be informed by a conscientious, unbiased news media that in the past 40 years, over 55 million child victims have been brutally killed by abortion—a staggering loss of children’s lives that equates to the entire population in England? And that many women have been hurt physically, emotionally, psychologically—and according to the Center for Disease Control over 400 women...

    Thanks to conservative new media, the Kermit Gosnell trial is finally part of the national dialog. But before the mainstream press got around to doing their job, ten congressmen took to the floor of the House to protest the lack of media attention being paid to the horrifying story. One such congressman, Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), contrasted the abortionist's trial to another ongoing narrative that the media covers obsessively: gun control. “If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” said Smith, a...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., April 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - "If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing." That was the challenging observation made this morning by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, on the floor of the U.S. House. Because Kermit Gosnell instead allegedly snipped the spinal cords of seven newborn babies in a building called an abortion clinic, the national media has almost uniformly ignored the case, said Smith, something that he charged amounted to a deliberate "cover-up." Rep. Chris Smith "Will the decades-long major...

January 25, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Forty years ago this past Tuesday marks the U.S. Supreme Court's infamous, reckless and inhumane abandonment of women and babies to abortionists.

    Congressman Chris Smith has faithfully served in the House of Representatives for 28 years. He is one Catholic who has remained faithful to the truth. He refuses to compromise on the fundamental human rights cause of our age, the Right to Life. The Pro-Life position is not simply a "religious" position - though the Congressman is a faithful Catholic Christian - it is a human rights position. The Right to Life is the foundation of every human rights issue. It is precisely because we recognize the dignity of every human person that we care about the poor...He is leading the...
