  • Liberal Groups Sue for Details on New HHS Religious Freedom Division

    TOWN HALL ^ | July 19, 2018 | Lauretta Brown
    The Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Women's Law Center filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Thursday after they received no response to a January Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information about the new HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) Conscience and Religious Freedom division. The groups are seeking information about how the new division operates, how it allocates resources, whether its decision-making is influenced by outside groups, and why it was needed in the first place. When the division was first announced, HHS explained that it “has been established to...
  • New York Gov. Cuomo’s ever-escalating pro-abortion campaign

    Yesterday we posted about uber-ambitious New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is furiously trying to out-promise a fellow pro-abortion Democrat running for governor in his commitment to extending , amplifying, and expanding abortion. Cuomo holds a press conference Monday warning state Senate Republicans to immediately reconvene to pass the “Reproductive Health Act” which is even more radical than Roe. If not, he threatened, voters will send Senate Republicans packing. (The state Assembly is safely in the hands of pro-abortion Democrats.) Tuesday gubernatorial rival Cynthia Nixon does Cuomo one better at her rally. Waving a coat hanger (these people are nothing...
  • Kavanaugh 2017: Roe Was Part of a Tide of “Freewheeling Judicial Creation Of Unenumerated Rights”

    I think it’s fair to read this passage from a speech delivered last year to AEI as, shall we say, “Roe-skeptical.” Although (a) naturally it’s much more circumspect than what you might hear from Mike Lee on the Senate floor, befitting the different roles of a federal appellate judge and a U.S. senator, and (b) it’s not so overtly “Roe-skeptical” as to give us a strong clue about whether Kavanaugh would overturn the decision. Is it enough for him that “the general tide of freewheeling judicial creation of unenumerated rights that were not rooted in the nation’s history and...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade. Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York. "We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there," Gov. Cuomo said. During the 2016 election, Donald Trump regularly stated that he would only appoint judges to the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling.

    Is this news? CNN and Mediaite are treating it as news. It’d be major, major news if his answer was anything other than this, for sure.As it is, the angle seems to be that a guy who’s now the country’s most prominent devoutly Christian politician, who got elected vice president by campaigning on overturning Roe … hasn’t changed his mind about a lifelong core belief since assuming office.What are the odds?Per the last post about Schumer, I think this is real news in one sense. The only way Democrats get a total victory out of borking Kavanaugh rather than...

    Tomi Lahren began her appearance on Fox and Friends this morning by saying she wanted to “clarify” her statements in which she argued against overturning Roe v. Wade. Instead, Lahren doubled down, adding fuel to the fire by saying that conservatives who want to go after Roe “might as well spit on the Constitution.” Said Lahren: “My problem is with some of my fellow conservatives who have put it out there that we are, quote: “coming for Roe v. Wade. That is a mistake, because we are putting it out there and implying that we are sending a justice to...

    Already preparing for the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo joined abortion activists this week to push for measures to protect abortion on demand. Cuomo, a Democrat who is up for re-election, signed an executive order Tuesday directing state agencies to make rules forcing health insurers to cover all forms of contraception, including those that may cause abortions, the Journal News reports. The governor also urged the state legislature to pass a radical pro-abortion bill that would keep abortion on demand legal if Roe is overturned. Surrounded by abortion activists Monday at a...

    Stop SCOTUS, Save Roe!: The Senate Must Refuse Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh Statement by NOW President Toni Van Pelt 07.10.2018 By naming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, Donald Trump has set the table for a vote on repealing Roe v. Wade. That was the promise Trump made during the presidential campaign. In his final debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump said the Supreme Court would “automatically” overturn Roe once he became president, “because I am putting pro-life judges on the Court.” Trump outsourced his Supreme Court nomination screening process to the radical Federalist Society, a group started...

    Less than a day after President Trump announced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to fill the vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, Todd Starnes spoke with Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law Professor and author of The Case Against Impeaching Trump, about why Judge Amy Coney Barrett was not selected. "I don't think the President decided not to pick Barrett, I think he decided to not to pick her for this vacancy. I think he anticipates several vacancies. If Ruth Bader Ginsberg leaves, he might pick her then. The American people have to know one thing that...
  • Kavanaugh's role in ObamaCare's survival fiercely debated by conservatives

    FoxNews ^ | July 9, 2018 | Alex Pappas
    Did Judge Brett Kavanaugh write the roadmap for saving ObamaCare? That question has dwelled at the center of passionate debate in the conservative legal community for days as Kavanaugh, a federal appeals judge in the District of Columbia, finds himself as one of President Trump’s four finalists for a place on the U.S. Supreme Court. The allegation from conservative critics is rooted in a 2011 ObamaCare case where Kavanaugh dissented against the ruling but acknowledged that the Affordable Care Act’s “individual mandate provision” could fit “comfortably within Congress’ Taxing Clause power.” Kavanaugh's detractors say that language helped provide the roadmap...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer launched a preemptive attack Monday on President Trump’s looming Supreme Court pick, saying the nominee must “share their personal views” on abortion in order to be confirmed. Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat, said senators should no longer accept general promises of fealty to precedent, and will instead demand...

    New York Post ^ | July 7, 2018 | Rich Lowry
    Roe is judicially wrought social legislation pretending to the status of constitutional law. It is more adventurous than Miranda and Griswold, other watchwords of judicial activism from its era. It is as much a highhanded attempt to impose a settlement on a hotly contested political question as the abhorrent Dred Scott decision denying the rights of blacks. It is, in short, a travesty that a constitutionalist Supreme Court should excise from its body of work with all due haste. Roe has been commonly misunderstood since it was handed down in 1973, in part because its supporters have been so determined...

    Could Danny Cevallos’ days at MSNBC be numbered? The question arises because he has–twice by my count–had the temerity to confound liberal thinking on Joy Reid’s show. Back in February, we noted Cevallos gently explaining to Reid that her suggestion that payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal could be “bribes” was wrong. If that was a gutsy thing for Cevallos to do, he took things a giant step further today. For many liberals, abortion is the ultimate issue, and Roe v. Wade the sacred cow. But Cevallos had the audacity to flatly assert: “Anyone–people on both sides would agree...

    Despite what many of us want to believe, President Donald Trump is the front-runner in 2020. If you supported him in 2016, you have little reason to regret your choice -- he's working hard to fulfill all his campaign promises. Sure, the polls often show that Trump's approval rating is underwater. But voters are a lot more than just data points graphed onto projections. No incumbent president in recent history has presided over a strong economy, not been enmeshed in a ground war and lost the next election. So, for those of us who desperately want to see a new...

    "Russia today is the country of the liberated woman," remarked Margaret Sanger upon her return from a 1934 tour of the Soviet Union. "The attitude of Soviet Russia toward its women...would delight the heart of the staunchest feminist," she wrote in 1935 for the Birth Control Review. But while Sanger was impressed with a growing Soviet effort to liberate women from "housework drudgery...and no pay or recognition tasks," she witnessed severe limitations in reproductive choices for women and foresaw a crisis in Soviet women's healthcare that has received extensive coverage in the media since the dismantling of the Soviet state....

    Ever since Maxine Waters encouraged her supporters to publicly harass Trump supporters, liberals have denounced civility and things just keep getting worse. Now, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC Contributor Jennifer Rubin announced that if Trump gets his way with the supreme court, it is time for civil war. “The people who brought Donald Trump and delivered him to the White House want this [the overturn of Roe], and I think they will not be disappointed. So then the question is, if they’re not able to withstand this onslaught, not able to hold back a justice that would reverse Roe, what...

    Just hours after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, media legal analysts and commentators began forecasting what this will mean for women’s reproductive freedom. On CNN: “Roe v. Wade is doomed.” Huffington Post: “It’s time to prepare for life without nationwide legal abortion.” Reuters: “a death knell for Roe v. Wade.” Or, as one commenter remarked, invoking Dylan, “looks like it’s all over now, baby blue.” I share the despair, but have we forgotten something? Republicans have a one-vote majority in the Senate. Their number includes two female moderates, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, both of whom support...

As Nick Loeb walked to his car with a production assistant during a day of shooting his upcoming feature film, Roe v.

    Trump’s highly publicized list of potential Supreme Court nominees has given liberals plenty of time to craft a campaign against his pick. It’s the list that won him the presidency. President Donald Trump’s widely publicized list of potential Supreme Court nominees brought conservative doubters — including evangelicals — to the highly unconventional Republican nominee’s side. It prevented them from fleeing as the “Access Hollywood” tape threatened to tank Trump’s campaign. And it reassured them throughout Trump’s turbulent presidency, especially when he pulled from it to ensure Justice Neil Gorsuch’s smooth ascent to the high court. Now, it’s warding off the...
