    Planned Parenthood abortion business CEO Leanna Wen has been fired after just 10 months on the job. The abortion corporation wants a more aggressively pro-abortion activist as its leader as it heads into the crucial 2020 presidential election. According to the New York Times, the Planned Parenthood board engaged in “hours of negotiations”and ultimately canned Wen, citing the need for a “more aggressive political leader.” Alexis McGill Johnson has been named as interim president of its political arm Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “I am proud to step in to serve as acting president and facilitate a smooth leadership transition in...

It’s too late for me.”You know that liberal Hollywood boycott about filming in Georgia because of its new fetal heartbeat anti-abortion bill?Legendary tough guy Clint Eastwood knows all about that Hollywood boycott. Anyway, he’s filming his next movie — in Georgia. “Now, you’ve got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky?”The new film is called “The Battle of Richard Jewell,” about the security guard/police officer who discovered a bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics.Initially, he was hailed as a life-saving hero.

    Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Wednesday is expected to sign into law the Reproductive Health Act, which he said would make his state the most progressive on the issue. The measure, which lawmakers said codifies existing practices, removes restrictions on abortions later in one's pregnancy and any criminal penalties for physicians who perform them, according to ABC Chicago station WLS. The new law also repeals Illinois' partial birth ban and the state's 1975 abortion act, in addition to expanding insurance coverage for procedures and for contraception.

    University of Alabama Denny Chimes Denny Chimes at the University of Alabama Wikimedia Commons TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The University of Alabama board of trustees voted Friday to give back a $26.5 million donation to a top donor who recently called on students to boycott the school over the state's new abortion ban. Hugh F. Culverhouse Jr., a 70-year-old real estate investor and lawyer, has already given $21.5 million to the university after his pledge last September with the rest still to come. But in a news release last week, he urged students to participate in a boycott of the...
  • The worst argument for abortion: Will you take care of these children after they are born?

    Christian Post ^ | 05/29/2019 | By John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris
    If pro-lifers are going to oppose the killing of unborn children, we are told over and over again, then we must be willing to take care of these children and their families even after they’re born. And since we don’t, it’s widely assumed and repeated, we have no right to oppose abortion. As if this line of argument wasn’t repeated enough, it’s become especially popular in the wake of the new anti-abortion laws in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, and now Missouri. For example, a recent political cartoon by Nick Anderson depicts pro-lifers gazing in awe at a pregnant woman’s belly and...

    Shocking NY Times headline calls evil good and good evil “Pregnancy Kills. Abortion Saves Lives.” There are four tactics favored by many mainstream media outlets, including the NY Times, that help them fulfill their two primary goals. Let’s start with their goals since they’re blatant: get more eyeballs for their paid subscription model and help Democrats win elections. How do they do this? They have standard journalistic strategies that work for them well because they’ve been around for so long. They have access to people, manpower to cover stories, and resources to acquire assets necessary to make their stories popular....
  • Gillibrand: Georgia's Heartbeat Abortion Law Is 'Against Christian Faith'

    Late last week, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) — a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — condemned pro-life efforts to protect unborn babies as "against Christian faith." Specifically, she slammed Georgia's law protecting unborn babies from the moment a heartbeat may be detected in the womb. Rather than addressing serious science and faith concerns about the humanity of the unborn and the Christian tradition of defending life, Gillibrand defended abortion by referencing free will. "If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenants of our faith is free will. One of the tenants of our...

    Following the 2016 presidential election, liberal elites wasted no time in demonizing those people populating “Red States.” Writing for The Hill, Duane Townsend was among the first to voice an opinion that has become familiar to the point of cliché: “America is held hostage by flyover states.” Townsend offered this thoughtful, measured analysis of this demographic: “A flyover state is the huge region between the coasts. As opposed to the eastern seaboard, northern post-industrial states and Pacific Ocean states. They’re overwhelmingly Republican, stanchly conservative, regressive right wing, evangelical Christian and working class, well, the loudest, most ill-informed of them are….They...

    Hollywood has-been Jim Carrey has moved from rabidly opposing guns, which kill guilty people at least sometimes, to rabidly supporting abortion, which kills only innocent people. His latest contribution to the national debate is a cartoon of an unborn baby, sporting Alabama governor Kay Ivey's face and a thumbs-up, just about to get sucked out of the womb by an abortionist's vacuum aspirator.  The business end of the tool is already pulling at the skin on Ivey-baby's face, making it easy for the viewer to imagine the skin coming off, followed by the brain, with arms and legs to follow....

    Did Democrats learn a lesson about attacking the Hyde Amendment in 2016? A new press from conservative states to restrict abortion has led at least one Democratic presidential candidate to repeat that strategy. Elizabeth Warren declared today that abortions should get direct federal funding and that Congress should pass “federal statutory rights” to abortion on demand.You know what would come in handy for that? Medicare for all: “These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren wrote. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion and deny women access to reproductive health...

    After the Alabama Senate passed a bill that makes most abortions in the state at any point during pregnancy illegal, Democrat 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg took to Twitter to share his thoughts. “The Alabama legislature is ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing women,” Buttigieg said in the tweet, which linked to a New York Times article that explained the bill. “Instead, the government’s role should be to make sure all women have access to comprehensive affordable care, and that includes safe and legal abortion.” *** Wednesday evening, Buttigieg also shared a tweet from the Yellowhammer Fund account, which claimed: “#Abortion...

    If you think the Supreme Court's conservative majority won't touch well-established legal precedent: think again. In a 5-4 ruling on Monday, the court overturned a 40-year-old precedent in a low-profile sovereign immunity case, a move liberals see as a potential indication that the precedent set by Roe v. Wade could be under threat. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority, "stare decisis does not compel continued adherence to this erroneous precedent," referring to the principle of legal precedent. He did not suggest that there was an urgent issue or functional problem with existing doctrine -- simply that it was wrong....

    With a shift from “safe, legal, and rare” to “abortion on demand and without apology,” it is never a surprise when leftist legislators propose bills that increase access to money-making, life-ending abortion procedures—especially in California. Already one of the most abortion-friendly states in America, our representatives continuously fight for the approval and support of the largest abortion provider and one of the most politically powerful organizations in California, Planned Parenthood. Their current target? Students. According to their 2017-2018 financial report, Planned Parenthood commits over 332,000 abortions every year. About 40% of those getting an abortion are college-age women. Unfortunately, that number...

    During a debate in the Alabama House of Representatives over a proposed abortion ban, one Democratic representative made an astonishing remark about why he opposed the bill. “It ought to be a woman’s choice,” said Representative John Rogers of Birmingham. “I’m not about to be a man and tell a woman what to do with her body. She has a right to make her decisions herself.” So far, a fairly standard argument in favor of the right to abortion. But Rogers didn’t stop there. “Some kids are unwanted,” he went on. “So you kill them now or you kill them...

    Alabama Dem opposing abortion bill: 'Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later' A Democratic state representative from Alabama is facing fierce backlash over his remarks in opposition to the abortion ban that was approved in his state, saying that "some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later." The Republican-controlled House in Alabama overwhelming approved a bill that would make it a felony to perform an abortion at any stage of a pregnancy -- with a sole exemption for women whose health is at risk. The measure passed...

    PBS is attempting to enlighten Americans by airing the beginning of certain abortion procedures. But, if the network truly wants to inform viewers, it should also film the end.On April 22, Frontline, a PBS documentary series, explored “The Abortion Divide” in America and the changes that have occurred both “inside and outside abortion clinics over 30 years.” While the film captured women beginning their abortions, it stopped short of showing abortion for what it is: the ending of an unborn human person. Looking first at the “inside” of abortion clinics, the documentary focused on medical abortions.“One key difference explored in the film...

    On Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced new efforts to prevent American overseas funding from supporting abortion. While the Trump administration had already implemented what is called the "Mexico City Policy," this recent change makes that existing policy more effective. Democrats have slammed the Trump administration as "abortion-obsessed," but this policy is extremely popular, as are restrictions to late-term abortion. "Your administration is abortion-obsessed," Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) told Pompeo in a hearing on Wednesday. "You’re so obsessed with it that the side-effects are devastating the health and are going to continue to devastate the health of women around...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Beto O'Rourke has refused to rule out abortions more than six months into a pregnancy. Asked by the Washington Examiner about his stance on third-trimester abortions, O'Rourke, who's battling with a crowded field of Democrats vying for the chance to unseat President Trump in 2020, said it is a woman's decision, in consultation with her doctor. "Listen, I think those decisions are best left to a woman and her doctor," he said. "I know better than to assume anything about a woman's decision, an incredibly difficult decision, when it comes to her reproductive rights." He added:...

    Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia are suing the Trump administration over new rules that would cut federal funding from Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide or discuss abortions. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, announced his decision on Monday to sue separately in a press conference and a coalition of 19 other states and the District of Columbia prepared to file their own suit Tuesday. The rule in dispute applies to a $286 million-a-year grant, known as Title X, that pays for birth control, testing of sexually transmitted diseases, and cancer screenings for 4 million low-income...
