    HARD-LINE conservatives have gone to new extremes lately in opposing abortion. Last week, Richard Mourdock, the Tea Party-backed Republican Senate candidate in Indiana, declared during a debate that he was against abortion even in the event of rape because after much thought he "came to realize that life is that gift from God. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen." That came on the heels of the Tea Party-backed Republican Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois saying after a recent debate that he opposed abortion even in cases...

    ...When I was a medical student, I delivered 12 babies... - but I also had to learn about abortion. Fortunately I only had to witness one - I won’t describe it to you – it is sickening even in a clinical environment - later that day we accompanied the same consultant to an infertility clinic - I remember walking through a room full of sad-faced couples - any of them would have been overjoyed to take away the aborted baby The term ‘abortion’ is a euphemism. Medically it refers to natural termination - about 1/10 foetuses have abnormalities which won’t...
  • THINK SQUAD: Chicago blacks say Democrats are “clueless about how mad they’ve made black folk...."

    <p>I’m just back from a breakfast downtown with members of a group of prominent Chicago blacks who informally call themselves “The Think Squad” (Thinkers, for short). What I’m about to tell you is straight from the source and uncensored…and incredibly shocking in many ways, particularly if you’re a Democrat who thinks blacks will always do what the party wants no matter what the party does to alienate blacks. The biggest unreported story in this election is the ANGER being directed at Democrats from not just the pulpits of black churches…but in the circles of black female friends who are often the “Big Mommas” to their families. These black women are furious with the Democrat Party and Barack Obama and are encouraging their families to just sit home on Election Day. Additionally, these Thinkers are now openly calling Obama “Bathhouse Barry” for the first time ever…which indicates the reports of Obama’s gay sexual activity in the sleazy Chicago bathhouse Man’s Country have saturated the electorate at this point. If “Big Mommas” are calling Obama a “punk” and a “cake boy”, it’s on like Donkey Kong, folks.</p>

    Finally, a court that stands up for a right that isn't the right to rip babies apart with other people's money. The Fifth Circuit court essentially told the abortion giant Planned Parenthood to shut their whining gobs and that Texas has a right to not fund them. This victory is being called a "roadmap" for any state that wants to defund Planned Parenthood. A lot of states have tried. Texas did it. This is a very bad day for Planned Parenthood. And a bad day for Planned Parenthood is a good day for babies.

    Planned Parenthood won a temporary restraining order on Friday, preventing the state of Texas from excluding the group from participating in the Women's Health Program. Austin state District Judge Amy Clark Meachum set a Nov. 8 trial date on Planned Parenthood's claim that Texas' effort to bar the group from the Women's Health Program is invalid under Texas law. Rochelle Tafolla, a Planned Parenthood vice president in Houston, called the lawsuit important "because nearly 50,000 women rely on Planned Parenthood for this basic health care through the Women's Health Program, and the lawsuit today is to preserve their access to...

    Hey, America, do you know what you’re funding with government money when you give to “women’s health” via Planned Parenthood? You think I’m going to say abortion, don’t you? I don’t actually need to say that since you’d have to be brain dead not to know that part. How about to Barack Obama’s re-election? Wait you say! Not us! We give my money to Planned Parenthood because women’s health is important. Our tax dollars should support this crucial organization. Well, don’t look now, but you look like the silver-haired matron of the abortion industry, Cecile Richards. Actually, government grants and...

    Honestly, I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. In a Tuesday night debate, Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Republican running for the U.S. Senate made what turned out to be a controversial statement about abortion. “I struggled with it myself for a long time,” he said, “but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” Mourdock made the horrible mistake of telling the truth about what he believes. He actually believes that abortion is...

    The controversy over comments made by U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock reveals the undeniable ugliness of American politics. At the same time, the media firestorm underscores the importance of getting the pro-life position right — and expressing it well. Mourdock, the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Indiana, was debating his opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly, this past Tuesday night, when the issue of abortion emerged. Both candidates claimed to affirm that life begins at conception, but Mourdock called for the end of abortion on demand. He then extended his remarks with these words: “This is that issue that every...

    We wish Tina Fey would weigh in on politics more often! The 30 Rock creator, who rocked the 2008 Presidential election with her dead-on SNL impression of Sarah Palin, hasn't been so vocal about this year's race. But at a Wednesday night benefit for women's health, the comedian had some withering remarks for Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin... "Todd Akin claims that women can't really get pregnant from a legitimate rape because the body secretes hormones," Fey told the audience. "Now I can't even finish this sentence without getting dumber; it's making me dumber when I say it -- but...

    Let's stipulate that people, and particularly politicians, can get into trouble by attempting to speak for God. But that's not the moral of the story regarding Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock. Responding to a question about abortion, Mourdock offered a grieved response -- his voice breaking a bit -- on the matter of which exceptions he favored. His Democratic opponent, Joe Donnelly, also pro-life, said that he would permit abortions in cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother. Mourdock said he had "struggled with it . . . for a long time," but had come...

    President Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and countless supporters have claimed again and again that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. President Obama did so in the second presidential debate, describing the “millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for . . . mammograms.” The problem is the mammogram claim is untrue, as was just cleverly highlighted by “Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day,” a phone campaign that found no Planned Parenthood clinics capable of breast cancer screening. Planned Parenthood has neither the license nor the machines. The most the abortion giant has ever done is...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | 10/25/2012 | Trevin Wax
    Debate moderators and reporters love to ask pro-life candidates hard questions about abortion. Curiously, they don’t do the same for pro-choice candidates. Here are 10 questions you never hear a pro-choice candidate asked by the media: 1. You say you support a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices in regards to abortion and contraception. Are there any restrictions you would approve of? 2. In 2010, The Economist featured a cover story on “the war on girls” and the growth of “gendercide” in the world – abortion based solely on the sex of the baby. Does this phenomenon pose...

    National Review ^ | 10/25/2012 | The Editors
    Attempting to read the divine will is a notoriously perilous enterprise, all the more so in the middle of a hotly contested Senate race. Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominee from Indiana, has come to appreciate this fact since answering a debate question about his views on abortion in cases of rape. “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” Mourdock was not saying that God...

    On the eve of the most critical presidential election in our nation’s history, it is worth revisiting the despicable words of the wife of the criminal occupier of our White House. On Tuesday, Life News posted an image of a 2004 fundraising letter Michelle Obama wrote in support of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), as he ran for the U.S. Senate in Illinois. In the letter, Michelle Obama laments the “rise of conservatism in this country…” Oh, the horror! That awful conservative ideology is rising, pushed by those scary people who love God and our nation as founded,...

    Republican Mitt Romney is standing behind Indiana Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock as President Barack Obama's campaign keeps up criticism of Romney's ties to a candidate who said pregnancies that result from rape are "something God intended." Romney's campaign has said he disagreed with Mourdock's remark, which came in a debate Tuesday with his opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly. But Romney is standing by his endorsement of Mourdock - and not asking the Indiana state treasurer to take down an ad Romney filmed Monday in support.

    EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO OCTOBER 24, 2012, 11:01 PM 8102 If Mitt Romney was hoping the Richard Mourdock story he’s deeply entwined in would go away fast, he apparently didn’t get the memo to one of his top surrogates. Just as Democrats and the Obama campaign began amping up their effort to highlight Romney’s ties to Mourdock after the Indiana Senate candidate uttered his claim that pregnancies caused by rape are “something that God intended to happen” — and Romney and the Republicans worked to put the moment behind them — John McCain sat down with CNN to throw a wrench in...

    Barack Obama likes to answer questions – from John Stewart, from the gang on “The View,” from David Letterman, from a fawning media establishment. But the nation witnessed what happened when Mitt Romney asked him a few tough questions. He crumbled like an empty suit. I doubt very much if Obama will ever allow me to interview him – or even ask one tough question. After all, who am I? I’m only a guy running the first and largest independent news source on the Internet, with an audience of 8 million. I’m only a guy who before launching WND 15...
