    “Beam me up Scotty.” These are an abortionist’s words directing a nurse to turn on the suction machine, words Abby Johnson heard when she was unexpectedly summoned to the procedure room of the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, of which she was the manager, to assist in an ultra-sound guided abortion. She was stunned to observe that the 13 week-old fetus pulled away from the invading suction cannula. Johnson recounts the abortion in her 2010 book Unplanned: “The cannula was already being rotated by the doctor, and now I could see the tiny body violently twisting with it. For the...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton has found an eager buyer for the rights to his life story — his own charity. The National Action Network agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing, which was obtained by The Post. . . The document does not indicate when Sharpton, who is president of NAN, gets the cash, which is above and beyond the $244,661 he already pulled down in compensation from the group in 2017.

    May 27, 2009, 4:00 a.m. What Kind of Judge?We need to know how Sonia Sotomayor views the role of the Supreme Court. By Orrin G. Hatch President Obama’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to replace Supreme Court Justice David Souter puts the judicial-selection ball in the Senate’s court. We can serve America well by focusing on whether she is the kind of justice America needs, in a process that is both thorough and fair. The Constitution gives the power to nominate and appoint judges to the president, not to the Senate. The appointment power is discussed in Article II,...

    ***This column was first published on Aug. 8, 2004*** ### When Barack Obama was only 33, he wrote a memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. I remember Obama telling me about his book when he visited my office in Washington back in 1999, when the Democrat was making what turned out to be a failed run for the House of Representatives. Dan Shomon, Obama's aide, sent me a copy of the book. I tucked Shomon's letter, dated Aug. 13, 1999, inside the cover and stuck the book on a shelf. There it sat until last...
