  • Media Fail: America More Interested in Amber Heard-Johnny Depp Trial than Abortion

    Americans are more interested in Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard than abortion, despite the establishment media’s hysteria and hyping the recent leaked Supreme Court draft opinion overruling Roe v. Wade. News about the defamation trial between Depp and Heard has amassed more total social media interactions (likes, comments, and shares) than the country’s biggest news stories, such as the the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion, Russia’s war in Ukraine, and inflation, according to data from NewsWhip.
  • 'I can't even fathom that ... just like you probably can't imagine what you would do if your daughter was raped': Abortion doctor responds when Republican Rep. asks if children can still be terminated if they are 'halfway out of the birth canal'

    A Congressional hearing on abortion access grew heated on Wednesday when Republican Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana demanded a gynecologist give her stance on performing the procedure when an infant is 'halfway out of the birth canal.' The doctor shot back that she could not even 'fathom' such a scenario, adding as a comparison: 'Just like you probably can't imagine what you would do if your daughter was raped.' The House Judiciary Committee is hearing from a panel of experts including Dr. Yashica Robinson, a board-certified OB-GYN and a board member with Physicians for Reproductive Health, as tensions mount over...

    Pro-abortion extremists are reportedly threatening to burn down the Supreme Court building and murder justices and the clerks, prompting law enforcement to ready itself for political violence should Roe v. Wade be overturned. A May 13 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo obtained by Axios revealed that government officials are investigating threats to the justices, the clerks, to places of worship, and to abortion clinics. The memo references threats that came after someone, possibly a clerk, leaked a draft opinion indicating Roe v. Wade will likely be overturned. These threats “are likely to persist and may increase leading up to...

    Down in South Texas, you may be seeing the future of the Democrat Party, i.e. the energetic Left vs whoever centrist is left in the ranks. My friend George Rodriguez, a South Texas political analyst, feels that Cuellar will pull it out somehow. The final first round result was 48.66% for Cuellar and 46.62% for Cisneros. The Cisneros campaign is attacking Cuellar all over on radio to TV. Someone is going to win and someone is going to lose but can the Democrat Party recover? This is from Texas Tribune: “The stakes are very high,” said Jose Borjon, a Washington-based...

    Anyone claiming to be a champion of science but quick to flag new evidence as ‘misinformation’ is no scientist at all. The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), an authority on medical licensure and the discipline in the United States, recently passed a policy on medical misinformation and disinformation that will guide state medical boards and the health care workers they license and could even “become state law.” What could possibly go wrong?Like the other obsessive “misinformation” pushes — from Silicon Valley to CNN’s Brian Stelter to the White House — this one once again uses the Covid rationale to...

    Like most people with any shred of decency, I was quite pleased (though also quite surprised) by the recent SCOTUS leak that suggests that the highest court may well overturn Roe v. Wade. If this ends up taking place (and so far, the conservative justices have indicated that the attempted bullying by the Left isn’t working), it’s exciting for a number of reasons. Obviously, the fact that defederalising abortion and placing it back into the purview of the states - where it belongs - will result in many, many little babies’ lives being saved. But what I’d like to discuss...
  • ACLU Files Motion Denying Existence of Women-The War on Women is real.

    The ACLU claims that there’s a War on Women… and it’s fighting it. "We're Not Stupid: Outrageous Quotes from the War on Women," the ACLU had headlined a post about its pro-abortion activism in 2013. A decade later the ACLU is arguing in court that women don't exist. Not only does the ACLU’s current abortion coverage eliminate any mention of women, but in response to a civil rights lawsuit by women, it actually filed a motion arguing they don’t exist. Last year, the Women’s Liberation Front, one of the few remaining feminist groups that have rejected transgender intersectionality’s displacement of...

    A century ago, the founder of Planned Parenthood (Margaret Sanger) worked with white supremacists to concoct a vicious racial targeting campaign (the “Negro Project”) with the goal of using birth control and sterilization (including forced sterilization) to reduce populations she and her friends deemed “unfit” to live. Today, as then, anti-life activists want to throw abortion at minority women rather than be bothered to find solutions to their real problems of poverty, relationships, healthcare, and childcare. But the depths of racism and discrimination Sanger’s movement would ultimately reach would have likely shocked even her. This weekend, that racism was on...

    Topline Michigan’s 1931 abortion ban cannot start being enforced again if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks, a state judge ruled Tuesday, blocking one of nine state abortion bans from before Roe was decided that could soon take effect if the court overturns the landmark ruling as expected. Key Facts The Michigan Court of Claims issued a preliminary injunction that bars the state government from enforcing the ban as the litigation plays out, after Planned Parenthood sued the state in an effort to block the decades-old legislation. The law bans all abortions except to save...

    Babies in this country face a perilous journey from the moment of conception and conception itself is no easy task. Sperm have to make the trip all the way to the uterus where one lucky sperm might get to fertilize the single egg released that particular month. Then the fertilized egg has to implant itself into the wall of the uterus. The developing embryo then continues onto becoming a fetus under the shadow of a possible miscarriage. That's the easy part. Then the fetus must face the stark reality that every single left-wing person in the country longs to abort...

    If a woman who is three, six, or nine months pregnant is shot and survives, but the baby dies, did the shooter make a reproductive choice, or is it the murder of a human? Does the mother who was carrying the baby believe it was murder of her baby, or does she believe that it was just a reproductive choice? Will the mother be soothed by people who tell her that killing the child was good for the economy and lowered inflation? After all, it saved her money and didn't change her lifestyle. It also supposedly helped save the climate....

    Protesting on people’s lawns will soon be illegal thanks to a new law signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis. Residential picketing has marched into the national debate this month as abortion rights supporters stake out the homes of conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justices. The protests began following the leak this month of a draft decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Although the Legislature passed the anti-picketing bill (HB 1571) in March, the bill signing plays into the national conversation around the First Amendment, the right to privacy and obstruction of justice. DeSantis, a Republican, signed the measure Monday. “Sending unruly...

    Although a Catholic legislator’s vote in favor of legalizing abortion still falls short of the “formal cooperation” that carries with it automatic ex-communication, the church still considers such a vote a stain on the legislator’s soul. As such, unless he confesses his sin and does penance for it, he may not receive communion without committing the second mortal sin of sacrilege, a point that many American bishops and priests seem to have forgotten.After months of accusing Republicans of using “phony, trumped-up culture wars” to divide the electorate, the Democrats have chosen abortion, the mother of all culture war issues, as...

    Our daughters deserve to be treated authentically; they should not become fodder for political spats.As the 1987 film “The Princess Bride” nears its satisfying conclusion, a distraught Princess Buttercup, thinking her Westley is lost to her, picks up a dagger and presses it to her chest. As she contemplates life without her Westley, Westley, reclining nearby, admonishes her with, “There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.” Lately, headlines have been hyper-focused on female anatomy. Due to the leak of Justice Alito’s draft addressing Dobbs, a challenge to Roe, and the...

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasFor nearly two weeks, thousands of pro-abortion activists have been protesting at the Supreme Court -- and at the homes of several justices -- hoping to prevent the court from reversing the Jan. 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade decision granting women the right to choose death for their unborn babies without government restrictions. Since then, more than 60 million babies have been murdered. But Roe did more than legalize infanticide; it launched an assault on the sanctity of human life. This past weekend, two mass shootings provided further proof of this assertion. On Saturday, May 14, while...

    Though few could have imagined it could just a decade ago, Roe v. Wade, the infamous 1973 decision which invented a federally protected constitutional right for a woman to kill her child while in the womb, is poised to be overturned by the Supreme Court. The desperate defenders of the ruling are now surrounded on all sides, hunkered down and near defeat after having passionately engaged in the ill-founded and unjustifiable legal war that they began decades ago. The decisive blow is about to be struck, and it hinges on a plain answer to the fundamental, bedrock question in the...

    Years ago, I visited a privately-funded facility in Marin County that counseled pregnant women about their choices and offered emotional and financial support as well as prenatal and postpartum care to those who chose life over abortion. The individuals working at this facility understood that winning the legal and political game around abortion was unlikely, so they set out to win the hearts and minds of the ultimate stakeholders—moms and their unborn kin. Theirs was a labor of love. Overruling Roe, which I wholeheartedly celebrate and is the best and only pro-democracy solution to our abortion pangs, rightfully moves the...

Help turn aside the darkness that covers our land and the minds of the people that might be here,” a priest who goes by Father Bill prayed during the protest on May 4. “In the name of Jesus, may they be healed....

    REISTERSTOWN, Md. — Baltimore County police are investigating a case of vandalism at a pregnancy center in Reisterstown. The Alpha Pregnancy Center was supposed to host office hours Monday but was closed as police investigate vandalism that was reported Saturday morning. The spray-painted message was very intimidating for those who use and support the center. Pictures show someone spray-painted threats against the center that read: "If abortions aren't safe, neither are you." Other messages read: "Not a clinic," and "You're anti-choice and not pro-life." The messages were signed "Jane's Revenge," which is a group that took credit for an arson...
