    "AUSTIN, Texas -- Speaker of the Texas House Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) is now virtually guaranteed to be victorious in his re-election for Speaker, as thirty five more Republican State Representatives announced this week that they would endorse him. Straus has faced ongoing criticism that he has failed to advance a conservative legislative agenda that reflects the will of the Texas people on a number of key issues, most notably the issue of protecting the unborn. This week's surge of endorsements has fanned the flames of discontent among pro-life advocates that the Texas House under Straus' leadership will once again...

    As an online writer, I come across a fair number of memes. Some of them are cleverly arranged to convey a well thought out message. There’s also ones like this: PICTURE ON LINK The sign on the left conveys an obvious fact: it’s pretty hard to hold “pro-choice” beliefs (or hold anything at all) if somebody’s already killed you. The logic behind the sign on the right, however, is a little more hazy. The second message seems to imply that holding pro-life values is somehow incompatible with being pregnant–an odd notion. For although their efforts certainly aren’t easy, pregnant woman...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has frequently employed a clergy council to attempt to justify abortion to Christians and the religious community. In June, LifeNews exposed how the abortion giant issued a pastoral letter claiming the Bible justifies abortions. Planned Parenthood issued a “pastoral letter” through one of its political lobbying arms—the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board—saying that “many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion,” that “abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures,” that “there are clergy…from all religions who support women making this complex decision,” and that Planned Parenthood “will refer you to someone...

    Margaret Atwood is a prodigious storyteller. Since publishing The Edible Woman over four decades ago, the prize-winning Canadian author has received widespread acclaim. But while some of her books have been best-sellers, the truth is that you don’t need to buy one of them to see Atwood spin a fictional yarn. Instead, just watch her recent interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose. In 1985, Atwood came out with The Handmaiden’s Tale, the story of a dystopian future where women live as second class citizens. When Rose asked her why the book remains popular, Atwood said it was due in part to...

According to the United Nations Population Fund’s latest report, this represents an unprecedented opportunity for progress, but only if future generations are smaller. UNFPA’s prescription to ensure a “demographic dividend” includes freely available abortion for adolescents, removing age of consent, drug and prostitution laws, and reduced parental involvement in the sexual formation of their children. “[Y]oung people require a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services, including . . . safe abortion care,” says the 2014 State of World Population, released Tuesday....

I often hear people say things such as, "I think abortion is wrong, except in extreme cases like rape." Let me begin addressing this issue by summarizing what we know about the unborn: they are alive and they are human. These are...

But that wasn’t the only issue. “Dr. Alexander perforated the woman’s uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels,” another physician said in testimony about what happened in the late-term abortion. “The decapitated head of a fetus was in the woman’s abdomen and the...

But what if we find there is a gay gene that could identify fetuses who would have a propensity to be homosexual? That may be on the horizon. From the New Scientist story: ultrasound3d22A genetic analysis of 409 pairs of gay twins has provided the strongest evidence yet that gay people are born gay. The study clearly links sexual orientation in men with two regions of the human genome that have been implicated before, one on the X chromosome and one on chromosome 8. The finding is an...

    Mark Crutcher, head of Life Dynamics, wrote a well researched and powerful book called Lime 5: Exploited by Choice.The book compiles stories of abortion complications and deaths. Crutcher draws material from court records, published sources, and firsthand accounts. Often, stories of abortion malpractice are hidden because abortion related injuries and deaths very rarely make the news. There is generally no legal requirement for clinics to report complications; doing so is voluntary. And since drawing attention to botched abortions is not in the clinics’ best interests, there is very little motivation for clinics to report their mistakes to the CDC. Women...

    There is an idiom that parents and employers likely put in practice when an important task has to be completed correctly; “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” President Obama certainly understands that sentiment with a slight variation; if the nation wants anything done at all, the President has to do it himself due to Republicans who have done nothing since January 2009. Sometime next week, after waiting patiently for Ted Cruz to order House Republicans to take up, and pass, the Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform, the President will take action on immigration reform. The...

    NEW YORK – The Obamacare architect at the center of controversy for his frank admissions that passing the president’s signature legislation required lying to the American people published a paper during the Clinton administration observing that legalizing abortion saved the government $14 billion in assistance to economically disadvantaged mothers, including African Americans, and lowered crime.MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber argued in his paper that without the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, “marginal children” would have been born to many poor mothers. He said statistics show these children would have been 70 percent more likely to live in a single-parent family,...

    Parents at a Near West Side school say they are "shocked" and "horrified" after viewing a new sex education curriculum intended for fifth-graders, saying the way the information is presented is over the top and not age-appropriate. SNIP But some of the information disturbed parents at the meeting, leading one to snap photos of five pages in the binder that included a lesson plan for fifth-graders. One of the pages, titled "Feel Good Reasons to Use FCs [Female Condoms]," included how to make sexual intercourse last longer and read: "Once you pop, you don't have to stop!" The page included...

    The American Life League released an amusing video this week chronicling the “Planned Parenthood rejects” of 2014. The bottom line is that this year, American voters rejected the Planned Parenthood agenda and sided with pro-life values. Planned Parenthood catalyzed the campaign of failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. If elected, Davis would have undoubtedly been good for PP’s business in Texas, as she demonstrated when she stood for eleven hours trying to filibuster a pro-life bill that the vast majority of Texans backed in 2013. Instead, Texas voters elected the 100% pro-life, Texas Right to Life-endorsed candidate Greg Abbott by...

    Operation Rescue is asking the Ohio Department of Health to conduct a thorough investigation into whether Ohio abortionist Thomas W. Michaelis may have engaged in improper sexual conduct with patients at the Toledo Women’s Center abortion clinic. The request was made in a letter to the director of the Ohio Department of health Richard Hodges dated November 13, 2014. Michaelis was indicted last week by a federal grand jury on two criminal counts related to possessing and distributing child pornography. He was arrested on Monday and is being held without bail at the Lucas County Correctional Center in Toledo, Ohio,...

    Most unborn children diagnosed in the womb with Down syndrome are aborted and never given a chance to live their lives. Part of the problem is a culture that wrongly believes people with Down syndrome are less valuable than others. An incident at a store where a mother of a two-year-old with the genetic condition had to deal with a cashier prejudiced against children with Down syndrome reinforced that problematic pro-abortion stereotype.A blogger named Sherry wrote on her blog about an incident with her two-year-old son Gabe (right), who has Down syndrome. Sherry wrote on her blog “Hand Me Downs”...

    One Chicago abortion clinic said the following on a brochure aimed at women considering abortions at the clinic: “From admission to recovery, patient ease and comfort are first considerations. She is encouraged to ask questions, share feelings or misgivings.” These were the actual instructions given to the clinic workers: “1. Don’t tell [the] patient. The abortion will hurt. 2. Don’t discuss [the abortion] procedure or the instruments to be used in any detail. 3. Don’t answer too many questions.

    New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham has been ordered to pay $420,000 to the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners to cover the cost of prosecuting him. That decision was made today at a scheduled Board meeting. “It is our hope that all of Brigham’s assets will be seized and sold to cover this order, including all the equipment in his seventeen abortion facilities,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Given all the human misery he has caused over years of botched abortions and other illicit practices, the time for leniency is long past.” Brigham’s last remaining medical license was...

    The Obamacare architect that dares not speak its name. At least from the lips of Democrats who nowadays are pretending to have little or no knowledge of Jonathan Gruber. The most prominent of the Gruber denialists is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi quoted by Washington Post reporter Sean Sullivan whose story headline also featured this denial: "I don't know who he is. He didn't help write our bill." Gee. If Nancy Pelosi said that then it must be true! If you think me a bit too credulous for accepting Pelosi denial without checking her veracity, well that is exactly what...
