  • Idea of Democrats funding anti-abortion candidates draws ire

    The proposal seemed modest in today's polarized political climate: The head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee suggested his group might help fund candidates who didn't share the party's support for abortion rights. The backlash from abortion-rights activists and organizations was quick and harsh. The basic message: Don't go there.

    WASHINGTON — Rarely has a municipal election in a midsize city ignited such a fierce national debate over what defines a Democrat. But the election this spring for mayor of Omaha is pitting abortion rights activists against economic populists and threatening the party’s unity as it regroups to confront President Trump. Part of the twist: The populist side’s standard-bearer, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is not even a Democrat. (snip) Mr. Sanders and the new leadership of the Democratic National Committee touched a party sore spot this week when they took their “Unity Tour” to Omaha to rally for a...
  • Abortion groups are very worried about Judge Gorsuch

    Earlier today Ed wrote about the left’s struggle to find something with which to attack Judge Gorsuch. So far it seems they have been able to come up with very little. But at least one leading faction on the left is demanding Gorsuch be kept off the Supreme Court. A coalition of 55 groups who support abortion, including NARAL and Planned Parenthood, have sent a letter to Senators warning he represents a “grave danger” to “our constitutional rights.” Politico published the letter which reads in part: We implore senators to do everything necessary to block this nomination. Gorsuch has demonstrated...
  • NARAL President: Repealing Obamacare ‘Is About Disempowering Women’

    A Republican initiative aimed at repealing the Affordable Care Act “is about denying women healthcare” and “disempowering women,” NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue said on Capitol Hill Thursday. Speaking at a press conference held by House Democratic leaders to protest GOP plans to repeal the ACA and defund Planned Parenthood, Hogue said President-elect Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP-controlled Senate have “no mandate to take away our healthcare.” “More Americans voted for Democratic leadership in the White House and the Senate than voted for the Republicans,” she said. Hogue also cited “reports” saying “that Trump voters are...
  • Pro-Gay Bully of Christian Bakery Fails in Bid for Public Office

    PORTLAND (ChurchMilitant.com) - The man who fined an Oregon Christian bakery $135,000 for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple has lost his run for public office, losing to his Republican opponent. It's the first time a Republican has won a statewide office in Oregon since 2002. Brad Avakian's rise to national prominence began when a lesbian couple filed a complaint to the Oregon Department of Justice back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christian owners of Sweet Cakes bakery, declined to make a cake for a gay wedding. Brad Avakian, then Commissioner of Oregon Bureau...

    It's a remarkable photo. A woman in tears, her face contorted with anguish, apparently being comforted by a man - perhaps her boyfriend or husband? - who himself appears to be on the verge of breaking down, both their gazes set apprehensively at something happening above them, in the distance. The caption explains what's going on: "Shock was the dominant reaction, rather than anger at what was meant to be Hillary Clinton’s presidential victory party." The pair were photographed at Clinton campaign headquarters on election night, and are presumably staring at the TV screens on which are unfolding one of...

    Culture surrounding the annual Super Bowl usually isn’t complete without some haggling over controversial advertisements as companies try to make the most of their $5 million half minute. But NARAL brought political correctness to a new low while live tweeting the football game… #NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50 — NARAL (@NARAL) February 8, 2016 (Cassy Fiano has extensively documented this and other absurd anti-life outrage that occurred in reaction to Super Bowl ads here.)

    The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) expressed its disgust with a Doritos commercial aired during the Super Bowl. In the ad an unborn baby being viewed on an ultrasound acrobatically responds to the proximity of the corn chip. NARAL found this ad "an offensive anthropomorphisation of fetal tissue. By falsely attributing human-like responses to uterine contents the ad undermines the public perception that abortion is merely a medical procedure necessary to protecting women's health." "Even worse, the ad bolsters anti-choice elements who in state after state have attempted to mandate that mothers-to-be must view ultrasound images before being allowed...

    In a day when the most innocuous thing can quickly become political, a Doritos Super Bowl commercial has upset some people who want abortion to be an unrestricted right. For those taking a bathroom break or watching "Downton Abbey" instead of the football game, here's the scenario. A pregnant woman is receiving a sonogram in her hospital bed. The screen shows the baby. The father is snacking on Doritos and he notices the child's arms moving in the direction of the chip, as dad takes it from the bag and puts it in his mouth. Finally, the baby can stand...

    Super Bowl Sunday is an unofficial holiday for millions of Americans, but to the joyless feminists of NARAL (formerly the National Abortion Rights Action League) it is an opportunity to denounce advertisers for committing PC violations against abortion orthodoxy.During the big game yesterday, NARAL's Twitter account "live-tweeted" reactions to the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials, exposing themselves yet again to be the angry, humorless scolds we all know them to be. The pro-abortion outfit chastised advertisers over the most micro of "microaggressions" and their SJW followers on Twitter retweeted their complaints. Hyundai was scolded for depicting women as "bad drivers...

    Two tweets in the last week, one from Cosmopolitan and one from NARAL, reveal the depravity of these radical pro-abortionists. Although the tweet has now been removed, Cosmopolitan sent out this message on February 4th: "Texas women are having more babies since Planned Parenthood was defunded," followed by a sad face. This was linked to a picture featuring the graphic #StandwithPP. Oh, the tragedy! Texas women are having more babies. More children are being spared the horrors of abortion - being sliced up, burned up, and sucked into pieces in the womb - and are seeing the light of day....

    This morning, NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC announced their endorsement of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. The timing of the endorsement is particularly striking, with the Iowa caucuses—the first primary-type event to occur nationwide for the 2016 Presidential election—is now less than one month out. Real Clear Politics has Clinton leading her main opponent for the nomination, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, by 12.8 points in Iowa, 49.8 to 37 percent in the state. (The third contender for the nomination, former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, is currently standing at an average of 6 percent in...

You don't get to create fake videos and accuse abortion providers of ‘barbaric atrocities against humanity’ one day and act shocked when someone shoots to kill...

    Dr. Karen Poehailos can reverse chemical chemical aboriton pill For people who claim to advocate for choice, informed consent is key. If abortion is to be legal, then logically there should be no objection to women being informed about all of their options, about the details of their baby’s development, and about the procedure they are about to undergo. Women should never be lied to or pressured into having an abortion, yet it happens with alarming regularity. So it makes sense for laws to be passed ensuring women are given accurate information — otherwise, how can a woman truly...

    If you are reading my column, you are familiar with the claim that campus administrators often seek to deprive young conservatives of the ability to defend their beliefs in the marketplace of ideas. But you may not have heard the claim that campus administrators often deprive young leftists of the ability to defend their beliefs in the marketplace of ideas. The latter contention is the subject of the present column. It begins with a salient example from my own campus, UNC-Wilmington. Here on my campus, a bold Christian organization called Ratio Christi often seeks to open up the marketplace of...
