    Rand Paul has said he had no objection to using the morning after pill as a form of “birth control.” The junior U.S. senator from Kentucky and likely 2016 presidential hopeful responded to a question on the topic yesterday at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. A woman asked, “If life starts at conception, should medicine that prevents conception like Plan B be legal?" Paul replied, "I am not opposed to birth control, That's basically what Plan B is.” “Plan B is taking two birth control pills in the morning and two in the evening, and I am not...
  • Justice Ginsberg Channels Margaret Sanger In Pro-Abortion Argument

    The left is furious with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg because she won’t retire and allow President Obama to appoint another leftist to the Court. On some level though they should be thrilled that she’s staying. Of all the leftists on the Court, she’s the most open about it and she’s the most articulate in espousing left-wing positions. Justice Ginsberg is radically pro-abortion. Frankly, she sounds a bit like Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. The left is forever reading racism into the words of conservatives. In this case, it might not be a bad idea to look at what...

    Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring has issued a shocking ruling saying that abortion clinics do not have to report rapes of teenage girls even though Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics have a long history of doing abortions on rape victims without reporting the rapes to authorities. In an official opinion quietly issued two days before the last Board of Health meeting, the Attorney General determined that the Virginia Health Department, and abortion center staffs, can turn a blind eye to the rape of underage children. The opinion was removed from the AG’s website yesterday, but reappeared last night, according...

    Note: In the following article, I refuse to refer to Campus Crusade for Christ by their new name. I find their removal of the words “Crusade” and “Christ” to be offensive and demeaning (and just incredibly silly).Nearly half of the abortions in this country are performed on college-age women. According to Students for Life of America, 70% of all abortion-providing and abortion-referring facilities are located within five miles of a college campus. Given those staggering numbers, it would seem that campus ministries would be positioning themselves to do something about the problem. But most are doing nothing at all. If...

    In a recent interview with Jeffrey Rosen of The New Republic, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had harsh words for a Texas law regulating the health and safety of abortion clinics that is almost certainly headed to her desk. This is remarkable enough. As Ed Whelan and Prof. Josh Blackman have noted, these are exactly the kind of remarks, prejudging a specific case, that should trigger a responsibility to recuse. But propriety aside, the comments also evince an unmoved confidence in the abortion industry’s assertions, even when they are proven false.

    (CN) - A sexual predator who fathered a child with his victim is not entitled to custody of the child, the Maine Supreme Court ruled. Richard Sullivan began sexually abusing Jane Doe when she was 13 or 14 and he was 60. He had sexual contact with her at least once a week until she became an adult. Sullivan arranged an abortion for Doe when she was 16. When Doe was 20, she gave birth to a daughter. He stayed with Doe and the child off and on for the next three and a half years.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has updated their policy guidelines (PDF) concerning contraceptives for children under 18, recommending that the first line of defense against pregnancy for adolescent girls should be implantable contraception such as an IUD or a sub-dermal hormonal implant. The AAP says that because young girls cannot be trusted to remain abstinent, reliably take a daily birth control pill, or use condoms, the best way to ensure they do not become pregnant is to fit them with a “long-acting reversible contraceptive” – a device that, once installed, will either provide a continuous dose of hormones designed...

Armed with this guide to Team Abortion’s most common linguistic fictions, you can spend less of your next rhetorical excursion deciphering sophistry, and more time dismantling it.

The ad lists in detail the anti-abortion positions taken by Mr. Braley’s Republican opponent, Joni Ernst. In the State Senate, the ad says, she sponsored a “personhood” amendment (declaring a fertilized egg to be a person) that would have the effect of outlawing abortion even in cases of rape or incest, and would also ban many common forms of birth control. Ms. Ernst is even shown saying at a...

    FULL TITLE: Episcopal priest praises new Planned Parenthood clinic as “safe place for the termination of pregnancy” It’s certainly no secret that some churches support the choice to abort. While it’s counter-intuitive to the Christian faith, which began with Mary’s unplanned pregnancy, it’s a reality in 2014 that many who identify as Christian also identify as pro-choice. Despite this troubling truth, it’s still disconcerting when a minister of the gospel speaks out and makes a statement welcoming a new abortion facility to his region the same way one might welcome a new business offering jobs to a troubled economy.

    By its very nature the crime of human trafficking strips each victim of his or her humanity. Sex trafficking in particular, which is categorized by law as a “severe form” of human trafficking, rebrands the person as a product to be bought and sold for pleasure. In the United States alone, the Central Intelligence Agency estimates that around 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States and as many as 400,000 domestic minors are also involved in the trade each year.

    The headline for this article may seem controversial, but that’s another way to state the pro-abortion views Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spouts in a new interview. “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people,” Ginsburg says. This isn’t the first time she’s sounded in favor of eugenics. Ginsburg caused a stir in July 2009 when she made comments about the Roe v. Wade abortion case that appeared racist. In an interview with the New York Times, Ginsburg said made it appear she supported Roe for population control reasons targeting minorities. ruthbaderginsburgRoe...

    Five years ago, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the most fascinating thing in a candid interview with Sunday New York Times Magazine reporter Emily Bazelon: "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of." People who aren’t as gung-ho about the snuffing out of young life as your typical mainstream media journalist noted this interview and discussed the deep ties of abortion and birth control to the progressive eugenics movement. In 1992, Ron Weddington, co-counsel in...

    If you’ve never heard of Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari, count yourself fortunate. If you have, then what happened recently at the Michigan Board of Medicine should come as a welcome relief. For those who may not be familiar, Hodari once ran a chain of as many as six abortion mills in Michigan and is among the worst of abortionists, and that’s saying a lot. Four women are known to have died at Hodari-run abortion facilities, which can aptly be characterized as “mills.” Tamia Russell, 15, died less than 24 hours after a late-term abortion at Hodari’s Lathrup Village facility in...

    Since February 2013, the nation’s oldest civil rights group, the NAACP, has spent over half a million suing the black organization, The Radiance Foundation and Life News founder, Steven Ertelt, for what it charges as “trademark infringement, confusion and dilution.” This so-called infringement included The Radiance Foundation’s news articles that detailed the NAACP pro-abortion actions and the NAACP’s ties to Planned Parenthood.Read those details here.So…it was a little surprising to me to discover that among other clear ties, in 2012, Planned Parenthood gave the NAACP $25,000 It was also interesting to learn that Planned Parenthood sent an open letter to...

    Chris Vognar of the Dallas Morning News Arts Blog shared a story, Monday, that unintentionally reflected very poorly on his subject - a former waitress and what she did with two incredibly generous tips from Rush Limbaugh. Tierce used to get some high rollers at the restaurant, including conservative talk show mogul Rush Limbaugh. Tierce waited on Limbaugh twice (both times he came in with Al Michaels, who was in town to call Cowboys games). Both times Limbaugh left her $2,000 tips on modest-size checks, once with twenty $100 bills. Prepare yourselves for one of the most ironic and unself-aware...

    Speaking to DallasNews.com, Merritt Tierce, a former waitress at a high-end steakhouse in Dallas, Texas, recalled using Rush Limbaugh's very generous tips to fund abortions. Merritt said twice Limbaugh dined at the restaurant and left her a $2,000 tip each time on "modest-sized" checks. She describes one of the tips paid in twenty $100 bills. "That was blood money to me," Tierce said, and so she donated "a sizable chunk of it" to the Texas Equal Access abortion fund, of which she was executive director. She explained: It felt like laundering the money in a good way. He’s such an...

Clinton would continue that pro-abortion legacy and the abortion advocacy of her husband, pro-abortion ex-President Bill Clinton.Here’s one example of Clinton’s fondness for abortion and promotes of abortion: She says she admires Margaret Sanger, the...

    The woman is Leyla Josephine of Glasgow, and she is a self-described feminist performance artist. She is reading a poem titled "I Think She Was a She" -- a poem lauded by The Huffington Post as "unapologetic. ... She ardently declares her power over her body as she reminds us that a woman exercising her right to choose is not uncommon -- and should never be shamefully brushed under the rug." What, exactly, is this poem? It's Josephine recounting her abortion of her unborn daughter. She notes, "I know she was a she and I think she would've looked exactly...
