  • I would have 'walked out the door' if Trump had asked me to overturn Roe v Wade says Gorsuch

    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...
  • More Feinstein insanity: Isn't Roe v. Wade a 'super-precedent,' Judge Gorsuch?

    No. Rob brought you some first-rate Dianne Feinstein insanity yesterday, but you realize the week is young, right? I sometimes get frustrated with conservatives who treat Supreme Court nominations as if they are nothing more than a means to stop abortions - not that this isn’t important, but you’d think the federal courts do nothing that matters aside from deciding whether Roe v. Wade will stand or fall. But let’s be fair here: Democrats are every bit as obsessed with this if not more so. Even if they’re only doing it to check a box with their most ardent pro-abortion...

    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...

    Norma McCorvey, the Texas woman behind the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, died Saturday at an assisted-living facility in Katy. She was 69. She died of heart failure, according to a journalist close to her. McCorvey was 22 and unmarried when she unwittingly gained national fame as the pseudonymous lead plaintiff in the watershed Supreme Court ruling that allowed women to seek abortions in the first two trimesters of pregnancy.

    Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, died Saturday outside Houston at age 69, The Washington Post reports. McCorvey was 22 when she sought a way out for an unwanted pregnancy, becoming Jane Roe, the pseudonymous plaintiff of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that established a constitutional right to an abortion. She died at an assisted-living facility in Katy due to a heart ailment, journalist Joshua Prager, who is working on a book about the case, confirmed her death to The Post.

Wade be overturned, the latest idea from Democrats in this blue state eager to push back against the new administration of President Donald Trump. Addressing hundreds of abortion-rights supporters rallying in Albany, Cuomo said New York must ensure that legal access to abortion services and birth control continues regardless of what Trump and other Washington Republicans do. “Our rights are under attack in Washington,” Cuomo said at the event. “As they pull on our rights, we’re going to push back.” …

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.” The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...

    The legacy of Roe v. Wade and its companion case Doe v. Bolton is a 43-year flight from reason and a society and political system distorted almost beyond recognition. Is there a constitutional principle so sacrosanct that it can abide no exceptions? Perhaps the First Amendment? Nope. Courts have placed reasonable restrictions on free speech and the practice of religion. You can’t libel someone, nor can you sacrifice live animals. The Second Amendment? No again, as any number of gun laws attest. One can find reasonable exceptions to just about every constitutional principle. But 43 years ago, trawling through the...

    More than 40 years after the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, 69% of Americans say the historic ruling, which established a woman’s constitutional right to abortion in the first three months of pregnancy, should not be completely overturned. Nearly three-in-ten (28%), by contrast, would like to see it overturned. Public opinion about the 1973 case has held relatively steady in recent decades, though the share saying the decision should not be overturned is up slightly from four years ago. In January 2013, 63% said this, which was similar to views measured in surveys conducted over the prior two decades....

    President-elect Trump’s reconfirmation recently on 60 Minutes that he will nominate “pro-life judges” has sparked some unprecedented media focus on what will happen when Roe v. Wade is overturned. This focus is long overdue. The notion of Supreme Court justices acting as public-health officials ranking the priority of abortion as health care, deciding what standards should apply to the practice in clinics from coast to coast, and deciding what credentials are suitable for abortionists would have astounded the great justices of the past. That’s why it has to be dressed up as some solemn “constitutional right” that obscures the Court’s...

Asked specifically in a "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday if he wants the Supreme Court to repeal the Roe v.

"Here's what's going to happen," Trump told Leslie Stahl of the news magazine program. "I'm going to — I'm pro-life. The judges will be pro-life." He continued:...

We return home with a new perspective, recognizing how much we take for granted, how much is far from inevitable. For a powerful illustration of this truth, look no further than Daniel K. Williams's masterful new book, Defenders of the Unborn: The Pro-Life Movement before Roe v. Wade (Oxford University Press). When readers turn the final page, they may feel like they have visited not just a different country, but a different universe.

    December 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the most influential evangelical Christian leaders in the United States says the sexual revolution began with the widespread availability of birth control. Dr. Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, made the remarks Saturday on David Wheaton's "The Christian Worldview" radio show. “We are clearly at a very important turning point, but you have to go back to the early twentieth century when sexual revolutionaries largely funded an effort to separate sex and procreation, and that was birth control," Dr. Mohler said.

Wade’s greatest and most notorious profiteer, Planned Parenthood.Justice O’Connor made her comment with regard to Roe’s reliance on “viability,” the stage at which an unborn baby can survive outside the womb. Thanks to medical advances, viability doesn’t mean what it used to mean. More and more babies now survive birth at younger ages. As a result, the...

    As the calendar slips toward the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, there’s a storm cloud hanging over America that will release its thunder in late June.

The question is: Will they do it? The drive to radically redefine marriage didn’t happen overnight. It’s the rotten fruit...

    I thought of the more than 55,000,000 lives that have been taken in the U.S. since 1973, and I became overwhelmed at the tragedy.

    Americans United for Life released its 2014 Life List ranking the 50 states based on how well they protect life in law, announcing that Louisiana tops the list for the 5th year in a row, followed by Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Texas. AUL’s Life List ranks states by their overall actions on life issues, released in advance of Roe v. Wade’s infamous anniversary later this month. For the 5th year in a row, Washington ranked as the worst state for life for failing to protect women from an unmonitored and under-regulated abortion industry, followed by California, Vermont, New York,...

    For Evangelicals, the word “victory” typically triggers memories revolving around the grand moment we dedicated our lives to Jesus Christ or a time we led another through prayer to know His forgiveness and redeeming love. In 2013, undoubtedly we can thank God for the millions who have found victory in Jesus. Indeed, these moments are the Church’s triumphs through Jesus Christ, but they are victories which unfold in the private realm of each individual’s heart. So as 2013 closes, let us remember, too, the Church’s largest victory in the public square: redeeming the lives of the unborn. Because it is...

     Saturday, 19 January 2013 11:30 Pro-Life Events Across Nation Mark 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Written by  Dave Bohon   On January 22, 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court issued its infamous Roe v. Wade decision that effectively granted women the right to “terminate” a pregnancy, thus condemning, at last count, over 50 million pre-born babies to death. One year later, on January 22, 1974, pioneering pro-life leader Nellie Gray launched the first March for Life rally that brought 20,000 pro-life activists together on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to pray, protest, and plan for the overturning of...

    To March for Life is to Experience LifeBy: Msgr. Charles Pope If you have ever had the exciting privilege of being in Washington for the Pro-Life March you how true it is that you always leave exhausted, but more alive than you came. The Pro-life March, for a Catholic especially, is really more than just the March, it is a series of activities. In the days immediately before the March there are usually seminars and other focused gatherings around life and bio-ethical issues. Then there is the great Vigil Mass for Life, at the Basilica of the National Shrine...

    The magnificence of life is really too wonderful too describe. But I found this description some years ago which summons reverence by its very ability to baffle the mind:MIRACLE OF LIFE- Consider the miracle of the human body. Its chemistry is just as extraordinarily well tuned as is the physics of the cosmos. Our world on bothsides of the divide that separates life from lifelessness is filled with wonder. Each human cell has a double helix library of three billion base pairs providing fifty thousand genes. These three billion base pairs and fifty thousand genes somehow engineer 100 trillion neural...

    Barack Obama’s administration is “the most rabid pro-abortion administration in US History,” according to the recent Christian Action News. As the 41st anniversary of Roe V. Wade approaches on January 22, the question is asked by the editors: “In a nation that regularly polls as majority pro-life, how on God’s green earth have we not been able to end the killings:” (1) Abortion is now the leading cause of death in the US, with 1,310,000 pre-born innocent human beings ripped apart in their mothers’ wombs either by hard cold scissors rammed into the back of their skulls or by burning...
  • Abolishing the Filibuster Could Pave the Way to Overturn Roe v. Wade

    11/22/2013 10:00:06 AM PST · by chessplayer · 22 replies
    Democrats and abortion activists are gleefully cheering a vote Senate Democrats took today to abolish the filibuster. The immediate effect of the vote is that Senate Democrats can quickly approve pro-abortion nominees President Barack Obama has sent forward for lower courts. But, are there unintended consequences? One unintended consequence is that future sessions of the Senate, controlled by Republicans, could eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and a nominee who could be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade could be confirmed. The Supreme Court is generally thought to be divided 5-4 in favor of Roe at this...

    It’s not often that I agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but she was right for more reasons than she probably realized when she said last year that the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade went “too far, too fast.” Roe protected almost all abortions from the democratic process and led to four decades in which, by even the most conservative estimates, 50 million American babies were aborted and pulled from their mother’s womb.And, now thanks to a revealing book out this week called Abuse of Discretion: The Inside Story of Roe v. Wade by veteran attorney Clarke...
