  • After CNN Debate, Should You Jump On The Carly Fiorina Bandwagon?

    It appears to be universally agreed upon that last night’s debate on CNN was Carly Fiorina’s moment to shine in the spotlight, and she did. The fight to get her as number 11 into the debate paid big dividends for her. She was poised, sometimes stern, and made a great connection between Iran and Planned Parenthood. Many have already jumped on to the Carly bandwagon, but there are still many unanswered questions about her that conservatives should demand answers for first before joining the group. Was she that great of a CEO at HP?According to her in the debate, yes...

    Energized from a standout performance in the second GOP presidential debate, Carly Fiorina hit the morning talk shows Thursday to remind voters that she accomplished her feat “in high heels.” “I hope what people saw last night is that I can win this job and I can do this job,” Fiorina said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The sole female GOP presidential contender added: “It was a long debate and I tell you what, I had to do it in high heels.” It was the first time Fiorina took the main debate stage with the 10 leading Republican candidates and the...

    There has been a lot of back and forth between left and right on the integrity of all of the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood to be the evil organization honest people have always known it to be. The truth of the matter is most people aren't going to watch the videos. I've seen clips here and there, but as a father of two and knowing unequivocally that a fetus is a human being I honestly don't have it in me to watch them all. I just don't. For those who can't (me) or wont watch all of the footage...

    An Office Depot in Illinois last month refused to print copies of a flyer that contained facts about Planned Parenthood (mostly taken from Planned Parenthood’s own annual report) along with a pro-life prayer, and the company is standing by that decision in the face of legal threats: Last month, Maria Goldstein, a Roman Catholic, asked employees at an Office Depot location in Schaumburg, Ill., to make 500 copies of “A Prayer for Planned Parenthood”, the Associated Press reported . . . Company spokeswoman Karen Denning tells the Chicago Tribune that Office Depot prohibits the copying of material that advocates...
  • Ben Carson's perplexing stance on abortion

    09/10/2015 7:31:50 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 33 replies | Katie Glueck
    Ben Carson’s presidential campaign is surging on a wave of support from socially conservative voters inspired by his passionate talk about faith and his attacks on Planned Parenthood. But while Carson insists he’s a fierce opponent of abortion, he also defends a long series of actions on the issue that are sharply at odds with the beliefs of the very voters fueling his rise. Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon, has referred women to doctors who perform abortions, was a trustee of a foundation that gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood, and his campaign struggles to articulate which...

    The Center for Medical Progress released a supplemental video today that sheds more light on the profit Planned Parenthood makes associated with the ale of aborted babies and their body parts. Earlier this month, the pro-life organization released a video catching a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video provides evidence showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. Today’s 28-minute supplemental video provides additional proof of that and also shows how Planned Parenthood is making and...

Veterans Affairs should be in under the Department of Defense, and it should be smooth transition,” said Carson. The...

Deisher helped the pro-life activists who spent three years recording undercover videos and capturing documents and information showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. Now, in a new interview, Deisher says she has reviewed the information the activists collected and she is making a shocking claim that Planned Parenthood may be keeping some babies...

The small biomedical tissue procurement company is distancing itself from Planned Parenthood after finding itself tangentially linked to what abortion opponents allege is Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of fetal tissue and organs. . . Both StemExpress and Planned Parenthood have denied doing anything illegal or improper. They say that they only facilitated the donation of tissue for medical research with a patient’s consent.

    This week, Donald J. Trump said that listening to Carly Fiorina, the only woman competing for the Republican presidential nomination, gave him “a massive headache.” It was music to Mrs. Fiorina’s ears. For months, the former Hewlett-Packard executive has tried to gain traction by pointedly attacking Hillary Rodham Clinton. But Mrs. Fiorina’s candidacy did not start to sizzle until her performance at last week’s second-tier Republican debate, where viewers realized that as the sole woman in a 17-candidate primary field, she was singularly qualified to stand up to Mr. Trump. It is not a role Mrs. Fiorina necessarily wants to...

The viral video has propelled outrage all over the internet and launched hashtags such as #PPSellsBodyParts. This story has put the abortion debate back into the national spotlight.

    GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina appears to offer initial support for a measure put forward by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) that would cost Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) the Speakership of the U.S. House of Representatives. Fiorina said it’s time for Boehner—and his counterpart on the other side of Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)—to produce results, or they should lose their jobs. Fiorina told Breitbart News: I’m frustrated. People worked incredibly hard–tens of thousands of activists across the country spent their time, energy, and money to win this historic majority in the House and a majority in...

I actually feel badly for John Boehner. I think this is Ted Cruz and President Obama’s shutdown. I think Ted Cruz’s tactics were wrong.

Fans of frontrunner Donald Trump, who is at the top of the polls and has also dominated social-media discussions. That’s based on analysis from automated-proofreading company Grammarly, which evaluated the supporters of the 2016 Republican presidential candidates.

    The GOP-controlled Congress is taking up the cause, once again, of defunding Planned Parenthood. This latest effort comes in response to macabre hidden-camera videos shot by the Center for Medical Progress of staff at Planned Parenthood talking about the grisly practice of chopping up fetuses for parts. There's a debate over whether the videos prove the center's claim that Planned Parenthood is ghoulishly trying to make a profit selling baby lungs, livers and hearts. There's less of a debate that the videos speak directly to the ugly nature of second-trimester abortions. Granted, a few extremists see nothing wrong in the...

    During my time in Congress, I regularly introduced legislation forbidding organizations that perform abortions from receiving federal funding. The U.S. Government should not force taxpayers to subsidize an activity they believe is murder. Thus, while I was horrified by the recently released videos showing Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing selling the organs of aborted babies, I am glad that the reaction to these videos has renewed efforts to end federal funding of abortion. My experience in Congress does not leave me optimistic that federal funding of Planned Parenthood will be ended this year, however. This is not just because the...

    Six months before a single primary vote is cast, Fox News and the RNC are making a historic move — they have decided to make the decision for the voters and arbitrarily limit the GOP field to ten. They have chosen who constitutes a serious candidate and who constitutes a B-lister based on the average of several early national polls. The use of national polling itself is problematic, as it gives a clear advantage to well-funded candidates with a clear national presence, while putting grassroots movements at a significant disadvantage. It also prioritizes celebrity over substance. In spite of her...

    The Republican-controlled Senate is set to vote Monday on halting federal aid to Planned Parenthood, a fast response to the series of unsettling videos exposing the group's little-noticed practice of providing fetal tissue to researchers. The measure is not expected to pass because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the other 53 Republican senators will need support from several Democrats to reach the 60-vote threshold, with some moderates on both sides still apparently undecided. However, the effort appears to be another step in the effort by pro-life groups and others to restrict abortions and undermine Planned Parenthood, which provides health...

If abortion were the respectable medical procedure its proponents insist it is, there would be no such thing as "Planned Parenthood", anymore than there is a Planned Hernia megacorp. We are told constantly that abortion is a very teensy-weensy, barely statistically measurable, all but undetectable micro-sliver of the wide range of "women's health" services Planned Parenthood provides. So it only does an estimated third of a million abortions per year - or about as many abortions...

Over Independence Day weekend, a young man from Boulder approached me and expressed a similar view but with a slightly different twist. Our constructive exchange inspired the present column. It is very easy to correct someone who thinks that abortion is murder but is reticent to "impose" that view on others. The proper thing to do...

    . July 11, 2014 Newt Gingrich : The Bad Neighbor Policy -- Playing Americans for Fools ===================================================== Guatemala and Mexico agreed this week to make it even easier for people to show up at the American border. That's right: EASIER. After all the public outcry against thousands of foreigners crossing our border, you might have thought the Mexican government would help stop the wave of people traversing Mexico to get to Texas. That would be a good neighbor policy. On Monday, however, the presidents of Guatemala and Mexico met to announce a new policy of making it easier and more...

    Let’s just say that this isn’t going to make Burger King’s rainbow Whopper highlight reel in terms of public relations. A woman wearing her work uniform threatened, attacked, and berated pro-life demonstrators who didn’t appear to be anywhere near a BK outlet in Columbus, Ohio. She started off by loudly insisting that a baby at the 12-week gestational mark has no distinguishing features whatsoever — yelling incoherently about “clump of cells” at one point to the bemused but disciplined young man — and then started kicking signs and shoving protesters, all on camera (warning: language NSFW):(VIDEO-AT-LINK)It’s not difficult to catalog...
  • BREAKING: Supreme Court Unanimously Strikes Down Abortion Clinic "Buffer Zone" Law

    The Supreme Court today unanimously struck down a Massachusetts law that required a 35-foot protest-free "buffer zone" around abortion clinics, saying that the statute violated the First Amendment rights of pro-life protestors. The ruling in McCullen v. Coakley also has implications for municipalities that have imposed their own "buffer zone" laws around abortion clinics. The 2007 law aimed to keep protesters least 35 feet from the entrances of abortion clinics to prevent confrontations, but the US Supreme Court ruled that it went too far and prevented the free speech of law-abiding abortion opponents who want to approach people going to...
  • 'Pro-Choice' Is a Tool for Propagandists

    Congratulations to pro-abortion advocates for understanding the power of language and employing the art of propaganda to dupe much of the American public into believing that their motivation is "choice" and that abortion is "reproductive care." No mean feat. Pro-abortionists are fit to be tied over the Missouri Legislature's approval of a bill that requires women to wait 72 hours after first seeing a doctor before having an abortion. Gov. Jay Nixon has not yet indicated whether he'll sign the bill. The bill's supporters argued that women need more time to digest information they receive from a doctor about abortion....

    National Organization for Women (NOW) president Terry O’Neill published an editorial on the Huffington Post today entitled, “Abortion, Like Contraception, Is Essential Health Care That Saves Lives.”Let that sink in for a second. A procedure that’s taken over 50 million lives in the U.S. alone since 1973 . . . saves lives.O’Neill’s “life saving” abortions How does O’Neill get to the conclusion promised in the title, that “abortion care” saves lives? Easy! She ignores 50% of the people involved in every abortion.The first place she looks for saved lives from abortion is high infant mortality rates. They’d be so much...
  • Sarah Palin's Comment About Hilary Clinton's Pro-Choice Stance Is Delusional

    Cafe Mom's The Stir ^ | May 8, 2014 | Ericka Sóuter, editor
    I should say upfront that I actually admire a lot about Sarah Palin. I may not agree with all of her political ideals, but you have to respect a woman who fiercely loves her family -- which she clearly does. She has such a seemingly tight bond with her daughters and millions of moms look to her as a role model. But her recent comments about Hilary Clinton and abortion are way off base. Sitting down for an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez, the former Governor or Alaska was asked whether she thought of the news that Chelsea Clinton was...
  • Why NARAL is Not Pro-Choice

    This past week NARAL Pro-Choice announced that Google had responded to its complaints against reportedly “deceptive” web search ads by crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) and other pro-life advocates. The group contacted Google and claimed that up to 79 percent of crisis centers ads violated Google’s Adwords rules. (Where NARAL got those numbers is another issue entirely.) While Google has only agreed to continue to enforce its policy, NARAL touts this as a grand victory against the pro-life movement. In fact, the group has already moved on to protest ads on Yahoo! and Bing. NARALs attack on CPC’s web search advertising...
  • Student Union Banning Leads to Unusual Coalition

    From time to time, a situation arises that gives truth to the old adage, "politics makes for strange bedfellows." The current case in point can be found at Cardiff University. The Students' Union there recently decided to ban all pro-life demonstrations on campus. In a sweet use of irony, the Students' Union was outraged over pro-life rallies and wanted to "prevent affiliated societies and groups from taking part in anti-choice protests or rallies." Nothing says tolerance like saying no to those you consider anti-choice by taking away their choices and banning them. Sadly, I'm sure that such destruction of logic...

    Sen. Rand Paul has become the first Republican to assemble a network in all 50 states as a precursor to a 2016 presidential run, the latest sign that he is looking to build a more mainstream coalition than the largely ad hoc one that backed his father’s unsuccessful campaigns. Paul’s move, which comes nearly two years before the 2016 primaries, also signals an effort to win the confidence of skeptical members of the Republican establishment, many of whom doubt that his appeal will translate beyond the libertarian base that was attracted to Ron Paul, the former Texas congressman. Rand Paul’s...
