    Rep. Diane Black is one of the pro-life women members of Congress who is a consistent pro-life voter and outspoken on he issue of protecting unborn babies from abortion. In a new column at the Tennessean newspaper, Black explains why it’s important for pro-life voters to support Amendment 1. The Planned Parenthood abortion business is spending heavily to stop the Amendment, who would enable the Tennessee legislature to pass legislation that would protect women and save unborn children from abortions. Here’s what this pro-life Congresswoman has to say: tennessee3From my time in Congress to my years as a nurse in...

    I have three children. Each prayed for, desired, loved, cherished. For years, I have watched pro-abortion friends and family dote on them and shower them with love. They treat my children as precious and special, as valuable members of society—but only because I wanted them. Had I desired an abortion, these same people who rave about my son’s wit or marvel at my daughters’ smiles would have been the first to drop everything and drive me to the nearest Planned Parenthood to have them “taken care of.” My children’s worth, in the eyes of the pro-abortion community and of our...

    President Obama has been accused of trying to silence his critics. Apparently he’s silencing his supporters now, too. That was Gwyneth Paltrow’s experience, anyway. Obama was attending a Democratic fundraiser organized by the Hollywood star when he allegedly robbed Paltrow of her ability to communicate. After describing herself as one of the president’s “biggest fans,” Ms. Paltrow went on to declare, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” As a heterosexual man, I’m probably not the most qualified person to evaluate President Obama’s physical attractiveness. What I can say is that no matter how handsome someone might be, there...

    Carol Everett owned two abortion clinics and was the director of four. She eventually became pro-life and now speaks about her experiences. Like nearly all abortion clinics, Everett’s clinics had “recovery rooms” where women could stay after their abortions until the anesthesia wore off or they felt well enough to leave. Everett says there were two main reactions among women right after their abortions: …[T]here are two reactions in the recovery room. The first one is: I’ve killed my baby.

    The Catholic Church has always condemned abortion as a grave evil. Christian writers from the first-century author of the Didache to Pope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae ("The Gospel of Life") have maintained that the Bible forbids abortion, just as it forbids murder. This tract will provide some examples of this consistent witness from the writings of the Fathers of the Church. As the early Christian writer Tertullian pointed out, the law of Moses ordered strict penalties for causing an abortion. We read, "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely...

    Projection is a powerful phenomenon, and the American people have been subject to a perfectly cynical display of psychological projection from Democrats this week as the increasing likelihood that the party in power is going to endure a stinging censure from the voters on November 4. Democrats have spent the better part of the week insisting that Republicans who have urged the president to take stronger measures to contain Ebola in the United States, which he did on Friday with the creation of a federal Ebola response coordinator, are stoking unwarranted fears among the public. At the same time, liberals...

    Alaska draws hunters from around the world. In fact, Planned Parenthood is hunting there right now; their target is GOP senate candidate Dan Sullivan. Sullivan is trying to unseat the Democratic incumbent, Mark Begich, and that’s put him in Planned Parenthood’s crosshairs. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund has launched attack ads against Sullivan, including one that says, “Dan Sullivan would let the government control what you do with your body.” I can see why the folks at Planned Parenthood would run an ad about trying to control women. After all, they’ve been helping abusive men do that for years. Planned...

    "It is [] our collective responsibility as healthcare providers to decrease maternal mortality throughout the world, and ensuring access to ‘safe’ abortion is a critical step in achieving that goal,” proclaimed Jody Steinauer, associate professor at the San Francisco General Hospital (1). Sure, the first half of that statement is good and true, preventing loss of life is elementary to sound medical practice, but is eliminating maternity itself really a prudent action to take in order to minimize mortality? Certainly the killing of a growing preborn human, the fetus, is not an ethical or reasonable solution to minimize death of...

Katie already posted video of Ernst's terrific rejoinder to Braley's lecturing on Iraq, and Conn is keeping tabs on auspicious-looking early voting trends. Two more clips for you. The first features Ernst pushing back against Braley's revisionism on Obamacare, which he's now claiming is flawed and in need of fixing. The Republican reminded her  opponent -- to whom Nancy Pelosi assigned the task of delivering one of the 'closing arguments' for the law -- that he's boasted in the recent past of having read every last word of...

The issue has come to define the final weeks of their campaigns to succeed retiring Democrat Sen. Tom Harkin. Polls show more women support Braley, a congressman from northeast Iowa, and more men back Ernst, a state senator from southwest Iowa. Braley and allied groups are pressing the abortion...

After all, neither Margaret Sanger nor Planned Parenthood are fans of babies. Recent footage found of Sanger showed her proclaiming no more babies, in her push to make women stop procreating, whether they agreed or not. This is in addition to her racist, eugenicist tendencies, in which she...

    FULL TITLE: A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online. – My open letter to her. A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online. I want to start by saying that I am skeptical of this being a sincere post. I am actually praying that it is not. It seems to me that one of the biggest strategies of the pro-abortion movement is to de-stigmatize abortion: to make it a simple, no-big-deal action like clipping your nails. All...

    A troubled abortion facility whose owner is so disreputable that even the head of the National Abortion Federation thinks he should be shut down, has been granted a variance by the Virginia Health Department allowing it to avoid compliance with new minimum facility safety standards. In fact, the owner of Virginia Women’s Wellness, the notorious New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, lost his last medical license last week when the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners voted to revoke his license due to a pattern of deception and dangerous, abusive practices that have characterized his 30-year abortion career. ultrasound4d6Now, because...
  • Wendy Davis Doubles Down on Attacking Greg Abbott for Being Paralyzed, Uses Disabled as Props

    Wendy Davis learned nothing from the overwhelming backlash she faced from both the left and the right over her wheelchair ad last week. In what may have been one of the most slimy campaign ads ever to air, Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attacked pro-life candidate Greg Abbott by running an ad with an empty wheelchair that takes a shot at Abbott, who is confined to one. Davis is the pro-abortion candidate for governor in Texas whose sole claim to fame is having filibustered against a bill to ban late-term abortions. Not content to speak out against protecting unborn babies...

    If he’s serious, the Republicans of New Hampshire and elsewhere are in for an interesting time. George Pataki is heading north from New York, where he retired as an undefeated three-term Republican Governor in 2006. Do not underestimate him. There’s a sort of aw-shucks persona he puts out there. He’s smart. He’s not encumbered by previous entanglements with the nutty Republican infrastructure. He beat a Democratic liberal icon, Mario Cuomo. He is/is not conservative enough. The big money boys like him. I worked with him and against him for 12 years. He’s got genuine human qualities that are admirable. He’s...

  • Feminists lamenting “sexist” contraception culture should look in the mirror

    The Cult of Contraception doesn’t exactly enjoy an overabundance of brain power, but when it comes to truly insipid commentary, PolicyMic has always been in a league of its own. This weekend, Marcie Bianco wrote that the birth control market is—what else?—even more sexist than you think. Opening with a comedy video from Buzzfeed (now there’s a font of deep cultural analysis) that purports to illustrate that “society places the burden of birth control on women rather than men,” whose condoms just don’t come with the cost and “cultural stigmas” of female birth-control options. The justification process alone — to...
  • NARAL Pro-Choice America is worried about November. Abusive men should be scared too.

    What does desperation look like? Well, if you’re NARAL Pro-Choice America, it looks like this: (PIC ON LINK) Polls show that a number of pro-life candidates have a good shot at winning this November, and that includes aspiring North Carolina senator Thom Tillis. Tillis has been endorsed by the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List in his race against the Democratic incumbent, Kay Hagan. In response, NARAL compared pro-lifers to sexual predators in a new ad featuring the image above. I suppose it’s not surprising that a pro-abortion group would take this approach. After all, most people feel comfortable talking about...

    "All our kids"—well, except for the ones who won't have a chance to build a life at all, thanks to Davis' ardent support of abortion . . . As a loyal member of Wendy Davis' email list, I just received today's fundraising message from the campaign, touting the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama has cut a radio ad for Davis. The email highlights the portion of the ad in which Mrs. Obama says Davis supports education "because she wants to give all our kids a chance to build a better life for themselves and for their families." Listen to...

    While most pro-lifers know that Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, is now pro-life, fewer know that she worked in two abortion clinics before her conversion. She tells her story in her book Won By Love.McCorvey had a lot to say about what working in an abortion clinic was like.  The first clinic she worked at, A-Z, was horribly run and filthy. Here, she describes what she saw in that clinic:  I started working at the A to Z clinic in January 1995, and it was a health disaster waiting to happen. If the owner had not closed it down,...

    As of the writing of this story, if you run a google news search on the word “personhood” two clusters of news appear.  The first set of articles relate to Tommy the chimp and the case that is being argued on appeal in the State of New York to establish legal personhood for animals. The second cluster is a barrage of “news” articles - more political porn than news - in which the main stream media is attempting to portray all politicians who support or supported universal human personhood as either Taliban-like religious zealots, or hypocrites running from their past.Let’s...
