    A massive outcry by Irish doctors and hospitals has government leaders backtracking on their demand that all hospitals start aborting unborn babies on Jan. 1 in Ireland.Major hospitals have said they are nowhere near ready, and forcing them to begin abortions in three weeks could put women’s lives at risk.Pro-abortion politicians have not delayed the start date, but this week Taoiseach Leo Varadkar did admit that some hospitals will not be ready within their timeline, The Herald reports.“It may not be available in every single hospital and every single place, but the service will be available,” Varadkar insisted. “It will...

    Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh Betray Pro-Lifers. As Expected Come on. Who didn't see this coming? After all the push and fighting pro-lifers did to make sure Robert Kavanaugh took a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, how could we not have expected to be betrayed as soon as possible? Roberts is Roberts. I mean, that ship has sailed. He's on the organ donor waiting list for the first spine transplant.

    Build It: While POTUS Donald Trump still has RINOs and Democrats in Congress to deal with in getting his promised border wall built, at least he doesn’t have to worry about pesky lawsuits from environmentalists. On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by a number of environmental groups seeking to stop the border wall project by claiming it would destroy the planet or something. The Washington Examiner reported that the SCOTUS would not consider an appeal by three environmental groups of a lower court ruling that gave the government the green light to begin replacing border fencing...

    The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.'” “Some tenuous connection to a...

    The dispute did not involve abortion, but rather a legal battle over whether states could block Medicaid patients' access to other health services. WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left lower court victories intact for Planned Parenthood in a legal battle with states over access by Medicaid patients to the group's services. The dispute did not involve abortion, but the action by the justices keeps a hot-button political issue off the docket. Three of the court's conservatives said the court should have taken the case. After an anti-abortion group released videos in 2015 that purported to show officials...

    The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood. It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women. It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices -- Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch -- voted to hear the case. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court's liberals in not taking up the case -- showing...

    ...Bundy naturally just disavowed the militia movement in solidarity with the migrant caravan, suggested that nationalism is actually the opposite of patriotism, and said that Trump’s America resembles nothing so much as 1930s Germany. Last week, Bundy posted a video to Facebook in which he criticized President Trump for demonizing the Central American migrants who were traveling in a caravan to seek asylum in the United States. “To group them all up like, frankly, our president has done — you know, trying to speak respectfully — but he has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in...

They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level,” Perez...

    A woman who taught dangerous, self-induced abortions and referred women to back alley abortionists prior to Roe v. Wade is being celebrated as a heroine in modern America.Slate recently profiled 90-year-old Patricia Maginnis, an early leader of the pro-abortion movement in America.  Maginnis taught classes on self-induce abortions and started an “underground railroad” of abortionists to refer women to in the 1960s. She also advocated for legalizing abortion on demand, supposedly to protect women from the dangerous abortions that she also was promoting.Earlier this year, the National Women’s History Alliance recognized her as an “unsung hero in the fight for...

    MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News : A senior adviser to U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., resigned...

Since the PAC was formed in September, Komar has done 80 interviews with possible campaign staffers, the person said. Of those, Hickenlooper has conducted or participated in 30 interviews.

    Split 3rd Circuit Upholds NJ's Ban on Large-Capacity Gun Magazines The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has rejected a challenge to New Jersey’s ban on firearm magazines holding more than 10 rounds. The appeals court, by a 2-1 margin, said the law limiting high-capacity magazines does not violate the Second Amendment, the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause or the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. The court affirmed an order from the U.S. District Court that denied challengers’ motion to preliminarily enjoin enforcement of the law. Judges Joseph Greenaway Jr. and Patty Shwartz ruled to affirm the lower court....

    For Christ and His Kingdom. That’s the motto featured prominently throughout Wheaton College.But what happens when it’s not about Christ or His Kingdom?I found that out recently after being invited by Wheaton College Republicans to speak on something I’m deeply familiar with—abortion and race. As someone conceived in rape yet adopted and loved into a multiracial family of 15, I have a rather unique take on this. I love actual diversity. As a biracial individual, it's literally in my blood.I presented a multimedia talk entitled: “Black Lives Matter In and Out of the Womb” (see video) which provided a perspective that is...

    California Democrats will be taking another stab at requiring all public colleges and universities to stock the abortion pill, anticipating a different outcome with a new governor taking over the helm in January. Democratic state Sen. Connie Leyva on Monday introduced the latest version of the bill, the College Student Right to Access Act, during the first day of the Senate's session. The legislation would make abortion pills available to students at schools associated with the University of California and California State University. A similar bill was vetoed in October by outgoing Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who said there was...
