    A handful of state legislators from across the country gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to announce the creation of “American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention” or ASLGVP. The new group, which claims to be non-partisan, will work to push new gun restrictions at the state level. But the coalition has one major problem – they will not let anyone know who they are.

    NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has measured a tenfold spike in methane, an organic chemical, in the atmosphere around it and detected other organic molecules in a rock-powder sample collected by the robotic laboratory's drill. "This temporary increase in methane -- sharply up and then back down -- tells us there must be some relatively localized source," said Sushil Atreya of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, a member of the Curiosity rover science team. "There are many possible sources, biological or non-biological, such as interaction of water and rock."

    Former abortion clinic worker Rayna Rapp, who herself had aborted a disabled baby, wrote a book where she interviewed men and women going through the process of amniocentesis to detect abnormalities in their babies. She has many quotes from these men and women, some of whom aborted, some of whom did not, in her book, but I would like to present two quotes from the author herself. In these, she talks about the conflicting values between supporting the disabled and aborting them before they are born. “Over the years of this study, I learned a great deal about two related...

    Abby Johnson tells the following story: Though I’d been with Planned Parenthood for eight years, I had never been called into the exam room to help the medical team during an abortion, and I had no idea why I was needed now. Nurse-practitioners were the ones who assisted in abortions, not the other clinic staff. As director of this clinic in Bryan, Texas, I was able to fill in for any position in a pinch, except, of course, for doctors or nurses performing medical procedures. I had, on a few occasions, agreed at a patient’s request to stay with her...

    A wide variety of rankings exist for the market of American colleges and universities. Each year, U.S. News & World Report releases its “America’s Best Colleges” edition. The magazine grades each institution based on factors including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, and student selectivity. Yet, U.S. News does not rank the overall experience that colleges offer. That is why Young America’s Foundation presents the following list of institutions that offer a conservative experience for students. Young America’s Foundation deemed these institutions the best, and they are listed in alphabetical order. Many conservative students seek alternatives in higher...

They may revert to drinking, trying to struggle with their anger and guilt, hiding out in a series of rationalizations. They have to deal with all sorts of problems: guilt, shame, anger. They feel they’ve been badly used by their colleagues, doing the dirty work for other doctors. These people also feel they are doing a job for society — that other people are making them do it.

    Did you know that the effects of the abortion pill can be reversed for women and their babies? Many women have reported changing their minds about the termination of their preborn child after ingesting the first dose of the abortion pill. Thanks to pioneering research by Dr. George Delgado and his colleagues, the abortion reversal success rate is high and rising. In an older article, we explained how the chemical abortion process works. It’s important to understand the process in order to understand how it can be reversed: * RU-486 (the “abortion pill”) is actually two pills, taken approximately 48...

We are called the “demon seed,” who are unable to contribute to our society, unable to bring our mother’s joy.

And an article in LifeNews.com, she describes her frustration when people call her baby “the rapist child” or emphasize how the conception happened, while denying her child’s basic humanity: “My basic human rights were violated when I was raped during his violent attack years ago as I plead for my dignity and humanity, but I think that one of the...

    Sir Albert William Liley is often called the “Father of Fetology” for all of his research in embryology and the development of the unborn baby. Here, he talks about fetal development: The prerequisites for motion are the muscles and nerves. In the sixth to seventh week, nerves and muscles work together for the first time. If the area of the lips, the first to become sensitive to touch, is gently stroked, the child responds by bending the upper body to one side and making a quick backward motion with his arms.… By the beginning of the ninth week, the baby...

    From a British reporter who went undercover at an abortion clinic: “My first call was to Marie Stopes, a nationwide network of sexual health clinics that provide private and NHS abortions. They claim to allow women “access to comprehensive, impartial, and nonjudgmental information” and all counselors are members of B ACP. On the phone, the operator repeatedly tried to book me in for a medical assessment, the first step to getting an abortion – despite me stressing that I hadn’t yet made up my mind. I felt bulldozed into starting the termination process and had to insist on having counseling....

    Long. At heart: "The proposed policy provides a general framework for exercising enforcement discretion in individual cases, rather than establishing an absolute, inflexible policy of not enforcing the immigration laws in certain categories of cases. Given that the resources Congress has allocated to DHS are sufficient to remove only a small fraction of the total population of undocumented aliens in the United States, setting forth written guidance about how resources should presumptively be allocated in particular cases is a reasonable means of ensuring that DHS’s severely limited resources are systematically directed to its highest priorities across a large and diverse...

    Thousands of gun owners plan to openly violate a new state firearms law next month in Olympia, Washington, daring local police to stop or arrest them. The massive display of civil disobedience — perhaps one of the largest acts ofGavin Seim lawlessness ever organized — is the brainchild of Gavin Seim, a self-described “liberty speaker” and former congressional candidate from Washington State. Seim, and the thousands of participants expected to attend the “I Will Not Comply” rally Dec. 13, will be protesting the passage of I-594, a state ballot initiative that becomes law in the The Evergreen State Dec. 4.

    On Saturday night at the O2 Arena in Hamburg Germany, Wladimir Klitschko (63-3-0, 53 knockouts) pulverized Kubrat Pulev (20-1, 11 KOs), knocking him out in the fifth round with a lethal left hook. Klitschko’s victory marked his 17th consecutive title defense. He is third in line behind Joe Louis (25) and Larry Holmes (20). At 38, Klitschko seems unbeatable. Eight years into his reign, he has dominated his division more than any other active champion today. He holds the IBF, WBA, and WBO titles, but remains one belt away from realizing his most immediate goal, unifying the heavyweight crown.

    The status of the Nevada "Background Check Initiative" that would ban private sales in Nevada is uncertain. 101,667 valid signatures are required to put the measure up for a vote in the legislature. If the legislature refuses to pass the measure, then the initiative would be put to the people for a vote. Yesterday, 11 November, 2014, was the last day for signatures to be collected. A group supporting an initiative to legalize marijuana said that they had collected 200,000 signatures.

The Gadsden flag, which the ad calls "muy peligrosa," or "very dangerous," was designed in 1775 during the American Revolution and has since been adopted as a symbol by various libertarian and tea...

    Are you stealing cars without knowing it? 10/08/14 - Here's another reason to protect your identity -- car thieves are stealing personal information to buy new vehicles directly from dealerships, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). The bureau says crooks have been frustrated by late-model cars with advanced safeguards that make hot-wiring difficult. But resourceful thieves are now using stolen IDs and fake driver's licenses to purchase or lease vehicles, which they then sell after changing vehicle identification numbers (VINs).
