    Over the past few days, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez have faced criticism for endorsing anti-abortion lawmaker Heath Mello and for suggesting that Democratic legislators don't all need to hold pro-choice views in order to be embraced by their party. And it looks like the backlash from (mostly) women made Perez and Sanders backtrack on reproductive rights being negotiable. On Friday, Perez insisted that all Democratic lawmakers should support pro-choice legislation, and on Saturday, Sanders was joined by Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards at a rally in Las Vegas to discuss reproductive rights. Last week,...

    The 28 percent of Democrats who oppose abortion have no place in the Democratic party, according to two of the party’s leading figures. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin echoed party chair Tom Perez Sunday in saying that there is no room in the party for dissent on the abortion issue. “I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who...

    DEMOCRATS HAVE A CATHOLIC PROBLEM Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the Democrats and Catholics:Heath Mello has divided the Democratic Party. This is unusual given his low profile: he is running for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. What makes him controversial among Democrats are his pro-life convictions.Senator Bernie Sanders, an Independent, has taken the high road, prudently saying that although he favors abortion rights, there should be room for Mello in the Democratic Party. Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, disagrees—there is no room for people like him.Perez speaks for the base of the Party. The Daily...

    April 24, 2017 (SPUC) — The Citizens' Assembly, the Irish body charged with examining the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, which protects the equal right to life of the mother and baby, recommended this weekend that Ireland legislate for abortion, with many saying there should be no restrictions at all. The Assembly, which consisted of 99 people randomly selected by a polling company and chaired by a Supreme Court judge, Ms. Justice Mary Laffoy, voted on a series of questions on Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24. In the first ballot, a substantial majority (87 percent) voted that Article 40.3.3.,...

    April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s bishops must clean up or shut down Development & Peace in the wake of a LifeSiteNews investigation that revealed the Catholic aid organization funded pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activist groups in Latin American, pro-life leaders say. “We can’t have Catholic money going to organizations that don’t have respect for human life from the very time of conception onward,” said Jim Hughes, president of Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family political lobby group. “It’s time for the bishops to shake this whole thing up and put into positions of authority people who are going to...

    It’s not called the Democratic sacrament for nothing, you know. After DNC chair Tom Perez declared abortion rights an issue of potential excommunication for Democrats after Bernie Sanders endorsed a pro-life Democrat from their Unity Tour. CNN’s Dana Bash asked Sen. Dick Durbin whether he agrees with Perez and the pro-abortion lobby represented by NARAL, or whether Democrats will back pro-life candidates in the future. Durbin replied that Democrats can think however they want … as long as they support abortion in public, that is:

    The little tent of the Democratic Party just got smaller, as DNC chairman Tom Perez has called for all Democrats to walk in lockstep with Planned Parenthood on the question of abortion rights, effectively ruling out the possibility of “pro-life Democrats.” “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”

    The biggest fuss was made last week over the Democratic National Committee's campaign stop for Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello. Progressive and pro-abortion groups fumed that Sen. Bernie Sanders dared to step onstage with Mello - all because he once voted for pro-life legislation. The DNC is now insisting that the event was all Sanders's idea.The whole situation really sheds a light on how radical the Democratic Party has become. DNC Chair Tom Perez, eager to distance himself from Mello, said abortion rights are non-negotiable.“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her...

    We went through a lengthy period where the former chair of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, provided nearly endless amusement with her frequently unhinged antics. It made for some great television and she provided a convenient foil for Republicans who wanted to demonstrate the unserious nature of some Democratic positions. After the brief, but embarrassing tenure of disgraced interim chair Donna Brazile, I’m sure that the Democrats were hoping for some significantly more “stable” leadership under Tom Perez. That really doesn’t seem to be working out, though. In the latest of his many odd statements, the new boss let all of...

    Sen. Joe Manchin – who has claimed in the past to be pro-life – appears now to be supporting abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood. The West Virginia Democrat appeared in a photo, tweeted by Planned Parenthood South Atlantic West Virginia, standing behind a poster that states, “I stand with Planned Parenthood.” The tweet immediately drew the ire of national pro-life leaders who in the past have counted Manchin among members of Congress who support the rights of the unborn. “Sen. Manchin used to call himself pro-life, but this is the last straw,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser,...

    Several years ago, a feminist professor told me that she had decided to abort her child because it was the “compassionate thing to do.” Those were her exact words and she was serious. At the time, I thought she must have suffered a severe intellectual hernia from the strain required to declare an act of dismemberment to be an act of kindness. Since then I have realized that this was more than just an isolated instance of intellectual constipation. Disguising acts of cruelty as acts of kindness is a feature of virtually every policy position of the secular “progressive” left....

    "Between 1990 and 2013 some 46.08% of all abortions were performed on women with previous terminations. There have been 44,0112,775 legal abortions since 1973, when Roe v Wade gave abortion constitutional protections. This, of course, does not include abortions that were performed in private. Interestingly, this is greater than the total number of legal immigrants in the USA (38 million), and the total number of illegal immigrants (11-33 million) as well."

    Royce and Keri Young are greeting and saying farewell to their daughter, Eva, who was born Tuesday with the sole purpose of giving life to others. Keri Young knew during her pregnancy that her daughter would be born with anencephaly, a birth defect that prevents the proper formation of the brain. They were told that because of this, the baby would likely not survive for long. In a selfless act of courage, she asked if the newborn's organs could be harvested. When she learned this was possible, she decided she would carry the baby to full term. *** "Will people...

    At least two employees of Billy Penn, the official Pennsylvania partner of PolitiFact, attended a Philadelphia birthday party in which guests "beat the shit out of" a piñata effigy of sitting Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.). A Billy Penn reporter and cameraman were present at the party, which doubled as a fundraiser for a local group that gives financial assistance to women seeking abortions. The birthday girl, an abortion worker named Samantha Pinto, got the piñata of Toomey made by the Philly Socialists—she thought that destroying it "would be a fun thing for the party since Pat Toomey opposes abortion,"...

    Planned Parenthood Federation of America has announced that Hillary Clinton will receive its “Champion of the Century” award “for her 40 years of service to women and girls in this country.” Clinton will receive the award in New York City on May 2 at a “once-in-a-lifetime Gala, 100 Years Strong,” an event that continues the abortion business’s centennial celebration. Planned Parenthood endorsed Clinton in the 2016 Democrat primary and election. In turn, Clinton referred to the abortion industry giant as her “Planned Parenthood family” when she gave her first address after clinching her party’s nomination.

    In a huge win for the Students for Life group at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, the school has officially cut ties with the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. In an email to the campus today (full text below), Whitworth University president Beck Taylor wrote: ­­­­­“I recently instructed the Dornsife Center for Community Engagement not to renew that relationship. This is the only formal partnership the university currently has with Planned Parenthood. At the end of the current academic year, Whitworth will no longer offer credit-bearing service-learning placements or internships with the organization.” Whitworth University bills itself as a...

    A new student group at Southern Methodist University in Texas launched a fundraiser recently for the abortion group Planned Parenthood. Dallas News reports the student abortion advocacy group began as a response to the university pro-life club and its annual cemetery of the innocents display. Student Claire Krizman, who began the fundraiser for the abortion group, said she has been disturbed by the pro-life display on campus for the past three years. “There was no education component to it,” Krizman told the news outlet. “There wasn’t a ‘Here are your options’ or ‘This is why it’s wrong’ based on their...

    Another sign of growing hostility toward pro-lifers, a Pennsylvania abortion activist celebrated her birthday on Saturday by beating a piñata effigy of a pro-life U.S. Senator. Media Research Council reports Samantha Pinto, a 25-year-old abortion worker from Philadelphia, had the piñata specially made in the shape of pro-life U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey’s head for her birthday. Pinto filled the piñata with condoms, lubricants, “dildo ring pops” and candy, according to the report. A video posted online showed Pinto and her friends smashing the piñata with a stick while screaming profanities about the Pennsylvania Senator and his pro-life stance. Pinto collected...
