    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A Republican member of Congress has released a new video showing him talking about the status of abortion in the United States. Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona republican, is generating controversy by saying that abortion has been more devastating for the black community than slavery. Franks, who has sponsored legislation responding to the high rate of abortions in the African-American community, released his comments to liberal blogger Mike Stark."In this country, we had slavery for God knows how long," Frank says. Nowadays, he says Americans look back and ask about society for allowing it: "What was...
  • Why Is Missile Defense Controversial?

    Missile defense - as the term might suggest - is defensive, not offensive. Brilliant American scientists have developed sophisticated technologies to prevent missiles - including those armed with nuclear warheads - from reaching their intended victims. If we are willing to share this capability to protect people around the world, Sen. Jim DeMint asked, "What is controversial about that?" I'd like to take a stab at answering the Senator's question (raised at a Heritage Foundation forum in which I was privileged to participate this week) but first, a little context is in order. Iran's ruling mullahs have the largest arsenal...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had a bad week. Caught between her own involvement in the CIA interrogations now condemned as torture and her party’s inquisitions, Pelosi floundered. Her fear and frustration have apparently given way to panic after word reached her of the CIA’s reaction to the damage she, President Obama and other Democrats have done to the spy agency in the last three months. Pelosi -- as I wrote earlier in the week -- was one of the few members of Congress briefed in detail on the harsh interrogation methods and who could have stopped them but didn’t....

    While Minuteman civilian patrols are keeping an eye out for illegal border crossers, the U.S. Border Patrol is keeping an eye out for Minutemen -- and telling the Mexican government where they are. According to three documents on the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Web site, the U.S. Border Patrol is to notify the Mexican government as to the location of Minutemen and other civilian border patrol groups when they participate in apprehending illegal immigrants -- and if and when violence is used against border crossers. A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed the notification process, describing it as...

    WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that it does not support the use of marijuana for medical purposes. The FDA said in a statement that it and other agencies with the Health and Human Services Department had "concluded that no sound scientific studies supported medical use of marijuana for treatment in the United States, and no animal or human data supported the safety or efficacy of marijuana for general medical use." A number of states have passed legislation allowing marijuana use for medical purposes, but the FDA said, "These measures are inconsistent with efforts to ensure that...

    I’ve just received a credible tip from an LGF reader that an America West flight out of New York was fired upon by a surface to air missile yesterday, and that the pilot and passengers witnessed it and are now being questioned by the FAA and FBI. That’s the extent of the information I currently have, and please note: right now this is completely unverified.

    ATLANTA (AP) For the first time in two years, Gov. Sonny Perdue laid out good news to a Georgia Legislature weary of budget cuts, outlining a proposed $1 billion budget increase for next year that will put bulldozers to work on school, road and port construction projects across the state. But even as he outlined his proposed $17.4 billion spending package to a joint legislative session Wednesday night, he cautioned that the ``New Georgia'' he envisions as the first Republican governor since 1870 is one of making government an instrument to help people do more for themselves not to do...

    "Are you a good American? Are you moved by the distress of your fellow-ciitzens - twelve million of them unemployed - by the collapse of industry, the decline of trade, the spread of destitution, the halt of progress in your country?" If your answer is affirmative, then your duty is clear: "Americans must buy American goods to the exclusion of any other goods, of any other products, of any other services." Prosperity can only be restored by applying "our purchasing power to the resuscitation of the American market." Led by the chain of newspapers owned by William Randolph Hearst and...

    Even before Sen. John Kerry took the stage of Fanueil Hall in Boston to give his concession speech, Democrats had begun soul-searching. "We need new talent ... it's time for a new team,'' said Democratic volunteer Bruce Wiljanen, who was sitting on the second-floor balcony waiting to see his party's 2004 candidate acknowledge defeat. A Kerry or a Hillary Clinton, he said, will not reach out to the millions of Americans in the red states in the next election. "We've got to get a new manager and trade a few players," he said. But, "do the party leaders have it...
