The New York Times broke down exit polls by gender and ethnicity, revealing a majority of white women 54 percent voted for Cuccinelli, patron of crisis pregnancy centers. Meanwhile, a whopping 91 percent of black women and 90 percent of black men voted for McAuliffe. According to the Daily...

McAuliffe is joining forces with the standard-bearer for late-term abortion (i.e. the killing of a viable baby), Wendy Davis, literally fundraising off the brutal destruction of human life and endangering women (though its not the first time). Davis is the pro-abortion legislator who inspired a mob to literally shut down the Texas legislature earlier this year in order to prevent a bill from passing that would ban late-term abortions and ensure that abortion clinics abide under reasonable health standards. Now, she is joining forces with McAuliffe to...

In his fear and distress Obama has launched an attack on Ryans perfect pro-life record which will backfire big time. Right now Paul Ryan is an unknown quantity to a...

    Pro-life groups are characterizing Rep. Bart Stupak's decision to support Obamacare and its abortion-funding language as a "betrayal," putting the congressman squarely in the political cross-hairs in his upcoming re-election battle in Michigan. Dr. Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, told Fox News on Monday morning: "This legislation is the biggest expansion of abortion in our country since Roe versus Wade. It really is a tragedy and on his part, it was a betrayal of historic proportions of principle." Until Sunday, the Michigan Democrat had insisted that he wouldn't support healthcare reform until Congress voted to...

    Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) Providence, R.I., Feb 12, 2010 / 04:59 pm (CNA).- Rep.

Kennedy, a Democrat and son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), announced his decision in a video posted to YouTube on Thursday. He said his life is taking a new direction. He has held his...

    One month after Senator Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) stunned pro-lifers across the country by casting the crucial vote allowing the health care bill to pass the Senate, the beleaguered Democrat caused a stir when he arrived unexpectedly at a private meeting of pro-life leaders Wednesday to explain his reasoning and insist that he was still devoted to their cause. The atmosphere of the room grew tense, however, as it became clear that Nelson had not come to apologize for casting the 60th "yes" vote that dashed the hopes of pro-life leaders counting on the senator to stop the abortion-expanding bill in...

    Boston, MA ( -- Behind in the polls to Republican Senate candidate Scott brown, supporters of pro-abortion candidate Martha Coakley have evidentially reached into their bag of dirty tricks. A Washington, D.C. based company is making calls to Massachusetts residents pretending to represent a prominent pro-life group. The calls, from 202-461-3441, a Washington number registered to a company called SOOH, claim to be from Massachusetts Citizens for Life. The caller claims the pro-life group is opposing Scott brown because of his stance against the health care bill, but as MCFL president Anne Fox told late Monday, the opposite is...

Our MCFL sleuths have found that this same number is calling people across the state claiming to...

    By teeing up a public battle over abortion in the health care bill now before the Senate, congressional Democrats could be risking more than just the fate of the legislation. Hanging in the balance are millions of Catholic swing voters who moved decisively to the Democrats in 2008 and who could shift away just as readily in 2010. According to exit polls, President Barack Obama won the support of 53 percent of Catholic voters, a seven-point increase over the showing of the Democrats 2004 nominee, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), a Catholic. Among Latino Catholics, who are often more conservative than...
