  • Vanity Fair Editor Fran Lebowitz Wants “Retroactive Abortions” for Mike Pence and Pro-Lifers

    Vanity Fair magazine just ended its third annual “New Establishment Summit” in San Francisco, a three-day conclave bringing together “titans of technology, politics, business, media and the arts for inspiring conversations on the issues and innovations shaping the future.” More accurately, what the magazine’s predominantly liberal readership would deem “inspiring.” At least one of those conversations, between New York magazine writer Frank Rich and purported humorist/Vanity Fair contributing editor Fran Lebowitz, hardly qualifies. Their discussion turned inevitably to the presidential campaign and Lebowitz offered this on how she “knew Trump wouldn’t win” long before the pesky election that actually decides...
  • United Church of Christ Pastor Celebrates Planned Parenthood, Prays for “Right to Choose”

    One of the key principles of the Christian faith is that all human lives are valuable because they are created in the image of God, and therefore killing an innocent human being is a grave evil. However, a few Christians stray from these teachings and argue that women should have a “right” to abort their unborn child’s life. Neichelle Guidry Jones, a United Church of Christ pastor from Chicago, is one of them. Last week, she praised and prayed for Planned Parenthood as it celebrated its 100th anniversary, Charisma News reports. “We celebrate today that on Oct. 16, 1916, Margaret...

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...

    When she grows up, Lynlee Boemer should demand to celebrate two birthdays a year. For she is the baby who was born twice. Her proper entry into the world came 12 weeks after she was temporarily taken out of her mother’s womb for a life-saving operation. Doctors discovered a tumour in the tailbone of Margaret Boemer’s unborn baby when the mother-to-be went for a routine ultrasound just 16 weeks into her pregnancy. Her only hope was a medical procedure that required surgeons to open up the womb and take the 1 lb, 3 oz foetus out for 20 minutes for...

    Now that we are done with the presidential debates, with just a few weeks until Election Day, the choice for the country could not be more stark. Hillary Clinton promises to continue the economic and foreign policy path of Barack Obama, which has weakened our country and emboldened our enemies. By expanding government spending, forgiving student loan debt, granting amnesty to millions of illegals, raising taxes, continuing with Obamacare, Madam President would massively pile on debt to a nation already leveraged to the hilt. As for Donald Trump, he will streamline government, cut taxes, incentivize businesses to bring assets back...

    Many years ago, while participating in an Operation Rescue sit-in at an abortion clinic near Washington, D.C., I was struck by the make-up of the pro-abortion protesters. They were largely a mix of atheists, Satanists and gays, and they proudly identified as such. What a coalition! I remember asking myself, “Why would homosexuals be so adamant about this — adamant enough to show up early in the morning to protest our event — when, for the most part, it’s not relevant to their lives, since they’re not having babies?” To this day, colleagues of mine who share the gospel outside...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says nearly 13,000 fully developed babies who could survive outside the womb are aborted annually. And – contrary to the false claims made by Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during Wednesday evening’s debate – few, if any, of those abortions occurred because of the “life and health of the mother” or “something terrible” being discovered about the pregnancy.

Defines a "partial-birth abortion" as an abortion in which the person performing the abortion: (1) deliberately and intentionally vaginally delivers a living fetus until, in the case of a head-first presentation, the entire fetal head is outside the mother's body, or, in the case of a breech presentation, any part of the fetal trunk...

    Christians across America must express their outrage at the Ninth Circuit Court's ruling to uphold California's so called 'Reproductive FACT Act.' This decision will require 150 pro-life crisis pregnancy clinics across the state to promote abortion services to the women they serve. Since Roe v. Wade, privately funded crisis pregnancy centers across America have provided a refuge and an alternative to women who might have otherwise chosen abortion. They are vitally important in the fight to promote a culture of life, adoption and health. This ruling now forces these clinics to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs, and it is...

This week in The Christian Post, Eric Sapp wrote a similar piece entitled “Hillary Clinton is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion.” The arguments made by these commentators are almost identical every election cycle. Furthermore, they have not aged...

Goldman’s movie review read more like an advocacy piece for abortion. She argued that the comedy, the third in the Bridget Jones series, should have mentioned abortion because the pregnant 40-something main character would have considered it in real life. She wrote: “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” deftly written, generates a belly laugh a minute. The one flaw of the movie is that it overdoses on cuteness instead of taking the braver path of discussing birth control and...

    Many Judeo-Christian leaders speak out against abortion, but the few who advocate for abortion often are the ones who get the most media attention. On Monday in Kentucky, pro-abortion clergy held a rally at the State Capitol to advocate for abortion and other issues, the State-Journal reports. The event was called the Higher Ground Moral Day of Action, and it was held in conjunction with other rallies nation-wide. Led by clergy, the event highlighted the upcoming election and called on candidates and elected officials to uphold “the most sacred moral principles of our faith and constitutional values.” These included “the...

    In a new interview, longtime pro-abortion feminist Gloria Steinem makes a number of wild-eyed statements. She repeatedly calls abortion a “fundamental human right” and falsely claims pro-life voters oppose having a woman president. Steinem told the Memphis Flyer that she is worried about the Surpeme Court overturning Roe v. Wade if Hillary Clinton isn’t elected and called abroting babies a fundamental human right. “We’ve been worrying about that ever since the decision. It would only take a couple of right-wing presidents appointing anti-choice Supreme Court justices to make that happen. There’s a lot of resistance, even though the majority of...

    A Lifeway Research study published late last year revealed close to 70% of women who have had abortion claimed to be of the Christian faith. Gallup polling showed the number to be just over half. Where is the Christian community going so wrong that a substantial majority of their own are feeling they have to have an abortion? Are Christians not talking about other options besides abortion, are they shaming women who have gotten pregnant outside of wedlock, are they ignorant of resources for women facing unplanned pregnancies? Where would Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry be if Christian women...

    Another Planned Parenthood has closed its doors, this time in Illinois. The abortion chain’s Effingham facility closed on Aug. 30 and posted a note on its door directing patients to the Planned Parenthood in Champaign, Illinois, the Effingham Daily News reports. A spokesperson for the Illinois abortion affiliate said they decided to consolidate the two centers because business “continued to drop” in Effingham. Local pro-lifers said the news was a good sign. Rob McKerrow, one of a small group of pro-lifers who stood outside the facility every week to offer women life-affirming information and support, said they noticed how Planned...
