    Democrat Ann Kuster has been representing New Hampshire's 2nd congressional district since 2013. As our own Matt Vespa has extensively covered, New Hampshire State Republican Marilinda Garcia is challenging Kuster for her seat. At this point, the race is a toss up with less than two weeks to go until Election Day. Yesterday Kuster's campaign held a pro-abortion, pro-choice event in an effort to rally liberal voters and forgot to take down the Halloween decorations portraying death in the background.

    The contrast between New Hampshire’s two candidates for U.S. Senate couldn’t have been clearer this past weekend. In one town, Senator Jeanne Shaheen spoke to the International Brotherhood Of Electrical Workers over a pancake breakfast, and in another, former Senator Scott Brown received a rowdy and enthusiastic reception at a tailgate organized by College Republicans at the University of New Hampshire. It sounds like a normal weekend in October, so why the significance? I can’t help but marvel at the juxtaposition: a traditional, pre-planned campaign event with the candidate as the main attraction and the other, a tailgate loosely organized...

    Sometimes people approach me and say that they are personally pro-life but pro-choice as a matter of public policy. In other words, they oppose abortion because they believe it is murder but wouldn't want to force their view on others who might disagree. 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...

    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...

    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....

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...

    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...

    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...

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.

Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right.Paul D.

Planned Parenthood's political entities expect to spend more than $18 million nationwide, putting women's health care and abortion rights front-and-center for the 2014 midterm elections, Politico reported Thursday.

It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.” And then he told “extreme” Republicans where to go. “Who are...

    For 41 years, abortion has been legal in America.With two grossly uninformed decisions in 1973, Roe v. Wade and Doe v.

Yet, the will of the American people is increasingly pro-life. And while the election and re-election of the most pro-abortion President in our nation’s history was certainly a negative for our pro-life movement, it has served as a catalyst for pro-life activists nationwide who no longer look to Washington for the justice...

The group said that 205 abortion restrictions were approved over the past three years, more than the 189 enacted during the previous decade. The report also noted that many states increased access to abortion, such as...

    People who are “pro-choice” believe that they are just defending the right of the mother to decide whether her unborn child lives or dies; thus, “pro-choice.” At the same time, they deny that they have any responsibility for the death of the unborn child if the mother decides to abort. This is nonsense. By supporting their right to choose, you are, in effect, implying that you believe either choice, life or death, is equally good and moral, and to the extent that you influence them to agree with you, you share in whatever decision they make. The only way you...

    In a poll done by Gallup earlier this year, the biggest complaint lodged against the Republican Party was “inability to compromise.” When I read the daily headlines, I see this theme continue. Republicans, particularly tea party Republicans, are portrayed as obstructionist, extreme, unreasonable, and unwilling to compromise. But let’s get perspective. If we are talking about trying to decide what day of the week to collect the garbage, and one wants Monday and one wants Friday, so the side that refuses to compromise on Wednesday might but be considerable unreasonable. But this isn’t the kind of national discussion we are...

In a vote of 32 to 13, they passed S.B. 353, a motorcycle safety bill that was amended to include abortion restrictions. The legislation will give the state Department of Health and Human Services the authority to regulate abortion clinics with the same standards as outpatient surgical centers "while not unduly restricting access." Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has already expressed her disappointment, urging Gov. Pat McCrory to veto the bill: BREAKING:...

    NOVA Women’s Healthcare of Fairfax County was one of the largest and most frequented abortion clinics in the state of Virginia. It performed more abortions than any other provider in the Old Dominion in the last few years, including 3,066 in 2012 alone. But, thanks to new abortion regulations in the state and a denied permit, it has seen its last patient. It’s speculated that new Virginia regulations which require clinics to meet new hospital-grade standards had forced NOVA to find a new location. The clinic never got the chance though, for the city denied its permit for being one...

    A poll taken by Huffington Post reveals an overwhelming majority of Americans supporting a ban on abortion after 20 weeks. This isn't much of a surprise. But those who "strongly favor" the ban outnumber those who "strongly oppose" by a 2-1 margin.Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards can't tell the difference between what Kermit Gosnell was doing and late term abortions.Weekly Standard: THE WEEKLY STANDARD: [Supporters of late-term abortion bans] say there's not much of a difference between what Kermit Gosnell did outside the womb to a baby at 23 weeks and a legal late-term abortion [performed] at 23 weeks...

    {fsubscribe}I'm glad the pro-life fight in Texas has given me an opportunity to work on some more pro-life graphics. I constantly feel like I don't devote enough time to cultural issues, which are more important than politics because culture drives politics.Full disclosure: I don't have a vagina, and I know that disqualifies me in the eyes of liberals from being pro-life...but I am a former fetus...that's probably more relevant.As silly as that, it actually is a prime example of the ugly underbelly of pro-abortion rhetoric. The one greatest revelation of all the pro-abortion protesting is how ignorant and unintelligent the...

    In the chaos that is the fight over the abortion bill in Texas, it’s difficult to see the real story behind the circus of filibusters, “mob rule,” and Satan-hailing. But I recently had the privilege of speaking to someone who has been on both sides of the argument. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director and now a pro-life advocate who testified during the Texas Senate hearings this week on the abortion bill, claims the ban on late-term abortions is not the most disputed portion of the bill. “What’s being highly contested by abortion supporters in this bill is not...

    As the debate about late-term abortion continues in Texas, it is important to point out why lawmakers want to approve legislation that bans abortions after five months. The key is in the science. Texas Right to Life released a video yesterday featuring Dr. Ingrid Skop, Dr. Greg Bonnen and Dr. Paul Liu. All three doctors confirmed babies do in fact feel pain as early as five months inside the womb. The Science Behind Preborn PainMeanwhile, a new study backs up these doctors and the science they discuss in the video above. LifeNews has more: A newly-published research study shows unborn...
