    Democrat Heath Mello lost his race for Omaha mayor Tuesday in a setback for supporters who argued that the Democratic National Committee and abortion rights groups were wrong to attack the anti-abortion former state senator. Mello, a 37-year-old Catholic from Omaha's working-class south side, had become a flashpoint for the internal Democratic battle over whether a candidate's position on reproductive rights should disqualify him from support by the national party after its crushing losses around the country last year. Republican Jean Stothert, a 63-year-old former nurse and city council member elected in 2013, was elected to a second term. It...

    Sen. Susan Collins on Sunday called it a “mistake” for the House Republicans’ health care bill to defund Planned Parenthood. “That is an important issue to me because I don’t think that low-income women should be denied their choice of health care providers for family planning, cancer screenings, some well-women care,” the Maine Republican said on ABC’s “This Week.” “It’s not the only issue in this huge bill, but I certainly think that it’s not fair and it is a mistake to defund Planned Parenthood,” said Ms. Collins. “But it’s one of many issues.” The American Health Care Act, passed...

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) warned Congress on Friday that he would file a lawsuit to protect abortion rights if the Senate passes the House GOP's healthcare bill. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Schneiderman attacked the bill, called the American Health Care Act, as "bad public policy." "It doesn't protect people with pre-existing conditions, it will cost millions of people healthcare," he said. Schneiderman said that the bill in its current form is unconstitutional due to attacks on "prohibited state funding." "In a tricky way, [it] tries to wipe out Planned Parenthood," he said. "It's an...

    Hollywood super-producer Shonda Rhimes says she finds it distressing that in 2017, women’s health needs to be protected as if it were an endangered species. In a speech at Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary gala in New York Tuesday night, where she earned the evening’s Champion of Change award, Rhimes — who recently joined the board at the organization — discussed how her hit television shows including Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy offer a glimpse into how the world would look if women were “running things,” and lamented that the female anatomy itself could become extinct in today’s political climate. “In 2017....

    A Planned Parenthood event will honor Hillary Clinton and Shonda Rhimes on May 2 in New York City. They are touting Clinton's "service to women and girls," and Rhimes' effort at "revolutionizing" the way abortion is "portrayed on television." In June 2015, Hillary spoke at the Women in the World Summit in New York City. She offered red meat to the audience, all of whom came to hear how she might promote abortion-on-demand once she became president. Speaking of abortion rights, Hillary said, "All the laws we've passed don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist...

    When Donald Trump stood in the lobby of Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 and announced he was running for president, he told all who listened to "mark" his words. "I would do various things very quickly," Trump said. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare," he said. "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border," he said. "And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. "Mark my words," he said. Fifteen months later -- after he won the Republican nomination and less than two months before his general election showdown -- Trump released...

    The 28 percent of Democrats who oppose abortion have no place in the Democratic party, according to two of the party’s leading figures. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin echoed party chair Tom Perez Sunday in saying that there is no room in the party for dissent on the abortion issue. “I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who...

This is unusual given his low profile: he is running for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. What makes him controversial among Democrats are his pro-life convictions.Senator Bernie Sanders, an Independent, has taken the high road, prudently saying that although he favors abortion rights, there should be room for Mello in the Democratic Party. Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, disagrees—there is no room for people like him.Perez speaks for the base of the Party. The Daily...

    The little tent of the Democratic Party just got smaller, as DNC chairman Tom Perez has called for all Democrats to walk in lockstep with Planned Parenthood on the question of abortion rights, effectively ruling out the possibility of “pro-life Democrats.” “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”

    It’s not called the Democratic sacrament for nothing, you know. After DNC chair Tom Perez declared abortion rights an issue of potential excommunication for Democrats after Bernie Sanders endorsed a pro-life Democrat from their Unity Tour. CNN’s Dana Bash asked Sen. Dick Durbin whether he agrees with Perez and the pro-abortion lobby represented by NARAL, or whether Democrats will back pro-life candidates in the future. Durbin replied that Democrats can think however they want … as long as they support abortion in public, that is:

    The biggest fuss was made last week over the Democratic National Committee's campaign stop for Omaha mayoral candidate Heath Mello. Progressive and pro-abortion groups fumed that Sen. Bernie Sanders dared to step onstage with Mello - all because he once voted for pro-life legislation. The DNC is now insisting that the event was all Sanders's idea.The whole situation really sheds a light on how radical the Democratic Party has become. DNC Chair Tom Perez, eager to distance himself from Mello, said abortion rights are non-negotiable.“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her...

    We went through a lengthy period where the former chair of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, provided nearly endless amusement with her frequently unhinged antics. It made for some great television and she provided a convenient foil for Republicans who wanted to demonstrate the unserious nature of some Democratic positions. After the brief, but embarrassing tenure of disgraced interim chair Donna Brazile, I’m sure that the Democrats were hoping for some significantly more “stable” leadership under Tom Perez. That really doesn’t seem to be working out, though. In the latest of his many odd statements, the new boss let all of...

    “A combination Apple Store, Starbucks, and Anthropologie” Planned Parenthood recently opened their new D.C. headquarters office. Built in an old auto shop, Planned Parenthood’s new digs cost $19.7 million to build and was funded by private donations (all the more reason America’s largest abortion purveyor doesn’t need federal monies, but I digress). The Washingtonian took a tour of the “swanky” new office concluding “the Carol Whitehill Moses Center is the most thoughtfully designed of all the organization’s facilities nationwide.”Judging by the photos (taken by Stacy Zarin Goldberg), you’d think you were in a swanky library or Google headquarters, not...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Monday during the confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, that Roe v. Wade is now a “super precedent” that cannot be changed. Feinstein argued that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, is “settled law” and could not be overturned by the Supreme Court in the future. “The Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld Roe’s court finding, making it settled law for the last 44 years,” she said, citing 14 cases where the high court upheld...

    Joe Scarborough was shocked, shocked to hear yesterday that Democrats have no room for pro-life views from former DNC chair and governor Howard Dean, but … didn’t we already know this? Scarborough told Dean that former governor Steven Beshear — whom the DNC tapped to give a forgettable response to Donald Trump’s speech last week — harkened back to an era where Democrats used to win by sharing the values of voters in their regions, including pro-life and pro-gun positions. Dean responds by claiming ownership of the next generation (via Matt Vespa): CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO “No....

Bush is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas's annual Fort Worth fundraising luncheon. President Bush pushed for anti-abortion policies during his time in the White House, but his wife Laura Bush has supported legal abortion in the past. The announcement comes amid the continuing debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of reproductive health services to women, including abortions. Barbara...
