    DC Whispers ^ | May 119, 2016 | DCWhispers
    Charles Wade was arrested in April on prostitution and child trafficking charges. On April 25, he really got himself in a fix. He was arrested and charged with human trafficking and several prostitution-related charges. The police report notes, that as part of the charges, he is accused of allegedly pimping out a 17 year old girl in Prince George’s County, Maryland. So far, the Mainstream Media has been reluctant to share Mr. Wade’s current legal troubles. The Obama White House has no comment as well. Read more at

    Gay marriage and abortion have little in common except for how each became federal law without ever being codified by Congress. The U.S. Supreme Court's Obergefell decision delivers social change the citizenry not only did not want but which it actively fought against.
  • Roe v. Wade at 40

    01/22/2013 9:26:33 AM PST · by Servant of the Cross · 6 replies ^ | 1/22/2013 | Cal Thomas
    At last week's signing of "executive actions" designed to combat gun violence in America, President Obama, flanked by schoolchildren, said, "...when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now." There's no doubt that children, especially schoolchildren, are vulnerable to all kinds of threats, but are they "the most vulnerable," as the president claimed, or is there another category of human life that qualifies for that designation? Forty years after a Supreme Court majority opened the door to legalized abortion, the number of aborted babies has reached roughly 55 million. Think of that. Fifty-five million potential...

    President Barack Obama, today, release a statement celebrating the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that allowed for 54 million abortions. The decision, handed down on January 22, 1973, overturned pro-life laws offering protection for unborn children in most states across the country, and made abortions legal and virtually unlimited. The statement Obama release says: As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed...

    The estranged wife of Dwyane Wade has filed suit against his actress girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, saying their relationship has caused the star Miami Heat guard's two sons emotional distress. Dwyane Wade called the lawsuit "baseless and meritless," and Union issued a statement insisting the allegations are false. Siohvaughn Wade filed the suit in Chicago this week, adding yet another chapter to the lengthy divorce saga between the former high school sweethearts who separated more than two years ago. She and Dwyane Wade had two sons, ages 8 and 2, who are listed as plaintiffs.

    Many pro-life advocates believe that the only way to truly outlaw abortion in America is to avoid lengthy legislative battles and address the real issue -- recognizing that every human life begins at the moment of conception. That is precisely the aim of an initiative that proposes an amendment to the Mississippi constitution. David Rogers heads the group "The Campaign for the Ultimate Human Life Amendment." The goal of the campaign is simple: change the Mississippi state constitution to recognize that every human life begins at conception -- and hopefully, ultimately overturn Roe v.

    It was 34 years ago today that Roe vs. Wade almost became the first Supreme Court ruling to be preceded with a full news release to introduce a newly invented right to the public. Justice Blackmun‘s press release, had it been released, would have emphasized that the court was not giving women "an absolute right to abortion," nor was it saying that the "Constitution compels abortion on demand." There is every bit of evidence that the court knew it was treading on shaky ground, and that they could not even decide which justification to use to strike down a Texas...

    JACKSON, Miss. - Republican Gov. Haley Barbour said Wednesday that he likely would sign a bill to ban most abortions in Mississippi if it's approved by lawmakers. The state already has some of the strictest abortion laws in the nation. The bill that passed the House Public Health Committee on Tuesday would allow abortion only to save the pregnant woman's life. It would make no exception in cases of rape or incest. South Dakota lawmakers passed a similar bill last week that was intended to provoke a court showdown over the legality of abortion. Responding to questions about whether he'd...

The measure, HB1215, cleared the state House by a vote of 47 to 22 Thursday after over an hour of debate. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Roger Hunt (R-Brandon), believes the time is right to mount a challenge to Roe v.

    Last autumn, in the midst of a presidential election, America's Democrats were fighting furiously to protect what they described as a constitutional right - to have an abortion. But in an extraordinary turn of events, some argue that it is the single issue standing in the way of their election prospects. They are daring to say what once was regarded as heresy - that it is time to let the argument go. Abortion may still be the most divisive issue in the US, but in a move indicative of creeping conservatism, Democrats now seem happy to amend - even relinquish...

The formation of the United States Senate was not a throwback to the Roman Senate, but a unique historical creation which protected States with small populations from domination...

    The main Darwinian process going on in America is the liberals exterminating themselves. Each conservative family averages two and a half kids while the liberals are barely over one kid per two average liberal adults. Thank you Roe and thank you Wade. Bush is indeed the president select of the Supreme Court.... the liberal court of three decades ago. As liberals slaughter their young the conservative majority grows. With the added boost from the new media, the pace is accelerating as the elitist evil empire is permanently frozen into minority status - at least in our lifetime. Could this be...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a challenge to its landmark 1973 ruling legalizing abortion by the woman once known as "Jane Roe," who was at the center of the historic U.S. case. Without comment, justices declined to hear the appeal from Norma McCorvey and thus dodged a highly charged political debate for now. McCorvey's protest of Texas' abortion ban led to the Roe v. Wade ruling establishing a constitutional right to abortion. McCorvey, who says she now regrets her role in the decision, argued in court filings that the case should be heard again in light...

    Abortion “rights” proponents are finding that their position is becoming even more indefensible because of the increased viability of small-sized infants. Proponents of abortion have always maintained that abortion — that is, killing babies — is not murder, but a “termination of fetal tissue.” And the legal system has upheld that viewpoint ever since the Roe v. Wade decision, even to the point of accepting third-trimester abortions and partial-birth abortions. However, recent events have called negative attention to the “logic” of the pro-abortion stance. On September 19, 2004, twins were born to Mahajabeen Shaik — not an unusual occurrence of...

"Safe and legal abortion is every woman's right." "Who decides? You decide!" "Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her doctor."

    Harry Reid, the new Senate Democratic leader, is moderate to pro-life on abortion... But when he appeared on "Meet the Press" Sunday and Tim Russert gave him a chance to take a clear position against Roe, Mr. Reid demurred, saying that "it would be pretty difficult for everybody" if the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 ruling. Actually, it would be far more difficult for the Republicans, for the continued existence of Roe allows the GOP to have it both ways on abortion... By mostly removing the issue from the democratic process, Roe created the current polarization over abortion, in which...

    One October morning in Las Vegas, a teenage girl, five months pregnant, checked into Humana Sunrise Hospital to under-go a prostaglandin abortion. Prostaglandin abortion is a simple — but dangerous — procedure in which the pregnant mother is given a pill which causes her to go into labor and expel her baby. On this morning the girl's labor was slow to commence and the abortionist ordered that she be given a second pill. Editor Sherman R. Fredrick of the Las Vegas Review Journal described what happened next: "Later nurses heard a shriek, entered the room and found the girl screaming....
