    For those of you wondering why I’m writing another column about the alt-right, the reason is simple: Every time I do, people comment to explain why I’m wrong. Those people, some of whom I used to know, are starting to buy what the alt-right is peddling. Some of them are brazen enough to inform me that I, as an active social conservative, should be “smart enough” to realize that “the Jews,” whom they somehow believe to be a homogenous and monolithic group, are responsible for all of the evils Western civilization faces. One of these people even wrote that Richard Spencer had “opened...

    South Carolina Citizens for Life President Lisa Van Riper praised the strongly bi-partisan vote Tuesday to advance the Unborn Child Protection Against Dismemberment Abortion Act H 3548. “South Carolina Citizens for Life commends the bi-partisan action of the S.C. House Judiciary Committee to advance the Unborn Child Protection Against Dismemberment Abortion Act,” Mrs. Van Riper said. “The gruesome abortion procedure used in many second trimester abortions which dismembers a living child in the womb should have no place in a civilized society.” By a vote of 18-4 on Tuesday, the South Carolina House Judiciary Committee advanced H3548, to the full...

    An Iowa bill to protect unborn babies from painful, late-term abortions is one step closer to becoming law. The Des Moines Register reports a state House subcommittee approved the bill on Wednesday, moving it forward to a full committee for consideration. Iowa Senate File 471, which passed the state Senate earlier this month, would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when strong scientific evidence indicates unborn babies can feel pain. It also would allow abortions up to 24 weeks on unborn babies diagnosed with an anomaly considered to be “incompatible with life,” according to the report. An individual who violates the...

    Today, the Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 20, Pro-Life Health Insurance Reform, on second reading on a 19-10 vote. The bill is expected to move to a third reading and final vote on Monday. Senate Bill 20 by Senator Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) and House Bill 1113 by Representative John Smithee (R-Amarillo) would protect Texans from paying for the abortions of others through their tax dollars and health insurance premiums. In the 2015 Legislative Session, Senator Taylor authored a similar insurance reform, SB 575, which passed in the Senate and died in the House. This session, Pro-Life Health Insurance Reform once...

    California is the only state in the U.S. that requires health insurance plans to cover elective abortions. Its onerous mandate even forces churches and other religious groups to pay for abortions in their employee health plans. The new plan to repeal and replace Obamacare in Congress could change that, and some California leaders are upset. The Sacramento Bee reports the proposed American Health Care Act would get rid of taxpayer-funded subsidies for insurance plans that cover elective abortions. If enacted, all of the health insurance plans in the California exchange would no longer be subsidized, according to the report. Here’s...

    U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy appeared to be trying to support abortion during his questioning of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch on Wednesday. It may not have been intentional, but the Vermont Democrat’s testimony actually reinforced a pro-life point about how abortion often is used to exploit women. Leahy brought up a personal experience he had before Roe v. Wade with an abortionist who botched a young woman’s abortion and nearly killed her, along with her unborn child. That abortionist, he said, was Nazi-trained. The Washington Examiner reports: He discussed a case in which he, as a state’s attorney in...

    Abortionist Willie Parker has made quite a name for himself by claiming that his Christian faith is what inspires him to keep killing unborn babies. In a new interview with the Alabama Media Group, Parker said he has done “thousands” of abortions at his abortion practices in the South. Claiming the moral high ground, Parker said he provides abortions to women because so many other doctors won’t. “I believe that what I do is rooted in justice, is rooted in love, is rooted in honesty and integrity,” Parker said. “Those are values that, for me are reinforced by my Christian...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Silver Spring, Maryland, permanently closed on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2017, after the property’s management team realized that abortion is bad for business. Pro-life activists, led by Lauren Handy, persuaded the property management company not to renew Planned Parenthood’s lease using a narrowly-targeted educational campaign. Planned Parenthood had occupied the same office, located at 1400 Spring St. in Silver Spring, Maryland, for over 20 years, conducting surgical abortions.“The men and women who ministered at that Planned Parenthood for two decades deserve a lot of credit for their perseverance and tenacity,” said Troy Newman,...

    Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's U.S. Supreme Court pick, said on Tuesday that he would have 'walked out the door' if the chief executive has asked him to over-turn Roe v Wade. The federal judge mounted a defense of his independence as a judge as he was questioned by senators, and also suggested that the 44-year-old decision that legalized abortion, is a powerful legal precedent that would be difficult to overturn. Gorsuch said in his confirmation hearing that the landmark women's rights case has been reaffirmed many times.  'It is a precedent of the United States Supreme Court,' Gorsuch told...

    A top British medical leader is facing public backlash this week after saying women should be allowed to abort an unborn baby simply because of the baby’s sex. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Professor Wendy Savage, a member of the British Medical Association ethics committee, argued that sex-selection abortions are not happening in Britain. A retired OB-GYN and abortion practitioner, Savage said she performed about 10,000 abortions during her career and only once was asked to abort an unborn child because of its sex. But Savage’s claims about rarity basically are meaningless, given that she believes women should...

At the time, the Supreme Court nominee said that the Obama Administration was getting in the way of their right to exercise their religious views and opposition to abortion. Gorsuch outlined a broad definition of religious freedom that could point to how he would rule in similar cases regarding abortion if confirmed by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ultimately sided with Hobby Lobby and the Court ruled that companies like it can...

    A female politician in Texas is taking an unusual swipe at what she sees as restrictive abortion laws by targeting men - more precisely male masturbation. Her unlikely draft law has a simple aim, she says - to protect unborn children everywhere. Which is why it wants all "emissions outside of a woman's vagina, or created outside of a health or medical facility" to carry a $100 (Ł81) fine. If a man made such an emission it would "be considered an act against an unborn child". If it sounds like something out of a dystopian novel, that is because it...

    The White House, concerned about the possible political repercussions of the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood, has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions. The proposal, which was never made formally, has been rejected as an impossibility by officials at Planned Parenthood, which receives about $500 million annually in federal funding. That money helps pay for women’s health services the organization provides, not for abortion services. “Let’s be clear, federal funds already do not pay for abortions,” Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said on Monday. “Offering...

    Artificial human life could soon be grown from scratch in the lab, after scientists successfully created a mammal embryo using only stem cells. Cambridge University mixed two kinds of mouse stem cells and placed them on a 3D scaffold. After four days of growth in a tank of chemicals designed to mimic conditions inside the womb, the cells formed the structure of a living mouse embryo. The breakthrough has been described as a ‘masterpiece’ in bioengineering, which could eventually allow scientists to grow artificial human embryos in the lab without the need for a sperm or an egg.

    Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will be the keynote speaker at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas' annual Fort Worth luncheon. Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in North Texas on Wednesday.   She will be the keynote speaker at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas' annual Fort Worth luncheon, helping to raise money for an organization that provides an array of reproductive and sexual health services, including abortions. Bush's public appearance before the group is striking, given that her father, President George W. Bush, was...

    Pro-life obstetricians understand that a pregnant woman isn't the only patient, and now medical ability allows them to act on what science has already confirmed with earlier treatments for unborn and premature babies. A study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine on February 16, 2017, from Duke Health of more than 4,000 babies born between 22 and 24 weeks shows more of those infants are surviving and with fewer neurological difficulties. Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says while that should be celebrated, it also should cause one to pause...
  • Abortionist Willie Parker Aborts Up to 45 Babies a Day and Claims to be a Christian

    We’re nearing the end of the day, and as promised earlier, I did want to talk about the interview the New York Times Magazine conducted with itinerant abortionist, Willie Parker. As you need to know about the magazine’s motivation is in the headline: “Willie J. Parker Changed His Mind About Abortion.” Of course, it goes without saying (since Ana Marie Cox is writing for the New York Times Magazine), Parker’s “conversion” is from “someone who, for religious reasons, didn’t want to provide abortion” to becoming a practicing abortionist who flies into a location and takes the lives of up to...
  • Snopes Defends Planned Parenthood, Falsely Claims Abortion Biz Offers Prenatal Care

    Sometimes even the fact checkers need fact checked. The pro-abortion bias of the popular fact checking website Snopes came through recently when it claimed pro-lifers are wrong to say Planned Parenthood lied about providing prenatal care. Snopes rated the claim “mostly false,” arguing that Planned Parenthood never said it provides prenatal care at all its centers. It also claims Planned Parenthood leaders did not emphasize prenatal care as a primary service, and pro-lifers took their comments out of context. The fact check is based on a new Live Action investigation showing employees at the Planned Parenthood abortion business denying women...
  • Federal Judge Blocks Texas from Slashing Medicaid Dollars Earmarked for Planned Parenthood

    A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Texas can't cut off Medicaid dollars to Planned Parenthood over secretly recorded videos taken by anti-abortion activists in 2015 that launched Republican efforts across the U.S. to defund the nation's largest abortion provider. An injunction issued by U.S. District Sam Sparks of Austin comes after he delayed making decision in January and essentially bought Planned Parenthood an extra month in the state's Medicaid program. Texas is now at least the sixth state where federal courts have kept Planned Parenthood eligible for Medicaid reimbursements for non-abortion services, although a bigger question remains over whether President...
  • The Untold Story: Abortion Activists Exploited Norma McCorvey to Legalize 60 Million Abortions

    Norma McCorvey, who passed away Saturday, didn’t go see attorney Sarah Weddington out of any desire to legalize abortion. She literally went to see her because she was hungry. They met together in a pizza parlor. Norma didn’t even know the meaning of the word “abortion.” She never got the help she was seeking for her third pregnancy, and ended up making an adoption plan for the baby girl who was born. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the outcome of Roe vs. Wade like everyone else did — in the morning paper. Having been exploited...

    According to government statistics, an increasing number of women from the millennial generation are opting out when it comes to having babies. Instead, it appears they’re finding an alternative more to their liking. Why the trend for young couples becoming “child-free”? And what have they found to fill the void? There’s an important distinction to be made between a “childless” couple that has no control whether or not they hear the pitter patter of little feet in their home, versus others who refer to themselves “child-free.” The latter is an intentional lifestyle choice not to have children. There is a...

    When Noah Wall was born, the doctors said he probably wouldn’t survive and if he did, he would be severely physically and developmentally disabled. Born with only 2 percent of his brain to a family in Cumbria, England, Noah had no hope — at least according to the doctors.In utero, Noah had developed a rare complication of spina bifida where his skull filled with fluid, crushing his brain down into a “thin sliver of tissue,” according to the UK’s Mirror. His parents — Shelly and Rob — were advised to abort him on five occasions. They refused. After Noah’s birth, an open wound...

    Norma McCorvey, the anonymous plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the United States, reshaping the nation’s social and political landscapes and inflaming one of the most divisive controversies of the past half-century, died on Saturday in Katy, Tex. She was 69. Ms. McCorvey died of heart failure in an assisted-living home, said Joshua Prager, a New York journalist who has written about her for Vanity Fair and is working on a book about the Roe v. Wade decision.
