  • Former PPFA President Wen drops another bombshell in her response to 4th Democrat debate

    National Right to Life ^ | October 17, 2019 | Dave Andrusko
    Two weeks ago, I wrote a post titled, “What’s happened to former PPFA President Dr. Leana Wen?” How could I have known that Wen’s profile would raise a couple of hundred points because of a tweet she wrote about Tuesday’s 4th debate among Democrats running for President. Talk about stirring up a hornet’s nest! First, some background. Once upon a time—and not so long ago—pro-abortion Democrats took refuge from the charge that they were “pro-abortion” by insisting that they supported the Hyde Amendment (which cuts off almost all federal funding for abortion) and were really, truly, honestly uncomfortable with “late”...

    FULL TITLE: Kansans for Life announces opposition to pro-abortion and activist applicants for the Kansas Supreme Court The Kansas Supreme Court Nominating Commission is meeting this week to interview applicants for a seat on the Kansas Supreme Court. In the wake of the Kansas Supreme Court’s recent decision finding a right to abortion in the Kansas Constitution, it is clear that ideology matters when selecting a Justice to the Kansas Supreme Court. For this reason, Kansans for Life opposes Judges Melissa Standridge and Evelyn Wilson in their consideration for a seat on the Court. “Both of these applicants are extreme...

  • CNN's Term for Pro-Life: "Opposed to Abortion Rights;" Term for Pro-Abortion: "Pro-Choice"

    CNN - Inside Politics | governsleast governsbest
    Not that anyone had any doubts, but CNN made its stance on the abortion issue crystal clear in the context of an interview by Inside Politics' Judy Woodruff of former U.S. Rep. Tim Roemer of Indiana, who has announced that he is seeking the chairmanship of the DNC. Unusual for a Democrat, Roemer is pro-life. But on the two occasions when that fact arose, Woodruff referred to Roemer not as being "pro-life," but as being "opposed to abortion rights for women." Yet when Woodruff quoted Kate Michelman, former head of NARAL, who condemned Roemer's candidacy, she referred to pro-abortion people...

    For the first time during the civil trial in the San Francisco Federal District Court, Liberty Counsel was permitted to show a four and one-half minute videoclip of former Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s senior director of medical services describing how she would “crush above” and “crush below” the baby’s thorax to obtain intact organs, and admitting she changes the position of the baby to breech to obtain an intact head during an abortion. Liberty Counsel is defending Sandra Merritt against Planned Parenthood’s civil lawsuit seeking millions of dollars. The federal judge has prevented Liberty Counsel’s legal team from showing...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood’s Star Witness Impeached as Undercover Video is Shown in Court for First Time in Baby Parts Case San Francisco, CA — Dr. Deborah Nucatola, former Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, took the stand in an ongoing federal trial against pro-life activists, who are defending themselves against Planned Parenthood’s accusations that they violated the Federal Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations act (RICO) when they secretly filmed evidence that Planned Parenthood was engaged in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby tissue and organs for profit. Nucatola was the subject of the first video summary released by...

    Though they ‘love America,’ this couple has chosen to put their roots down in the coastal town of Denia in Spain. Call ‘em Texpats. Kevin and Susan Bryant, 55 and 48, spent most of their lives in Texas, recently in retiree hot spot Austin. But “when Austin became a mini Silicon Valley, we were priced out,” Kevin, a now-retired history teacher and principal, tells MarketWatch. History buff Kevin says he’d always wanted to live in Europe — “in a castle, specifically, but I let that part go,” he jokes — and began hunting for where the couple might retire on...

    If you’re worried that your white, male 76-year-old candidate might not be able to cut the mustard, who do you bring in? A white, male 77-year-old candidate, of course. Or at least that seems to be the thinking of billionaire New Yorker Michael Bloomberg.According to sources close to the former New York City Mayor, Bloomberg is still “seriously thinking about” running for President, probably as a Democrat, but only if Joe Biden appears to be seriously struggling against Elizabeth Warren. Or perhaps only if Joe Biden drops out of the race. (CNBC) Mike Bloomberg might end up running for...

    Michael Bloomberg has claimed California Sen. Kamala Harris' plan to abolish private health insurance in favor of 'Medicare for all' would bankrupt the country. The former New York City mayor - who is considering running for the Democratic presidential nomination - rejected the idea endorsed by his 2020 rival, which is gaining traction in the party. 'I think you could never afford that. You’re talking about trillions of dollars,' Mr Bloomberg said during a political swing in New Hampshire, where the nation’s first primary will be held next year.

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood staff try to prove their conversations with undercover investigators in public places were ‘private’ The civil trial of Planned Parenthood v. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) resumed on Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco with two Planned Parenthood leaders taking the stand. They each testified to the fact that the screening process for exhibitors at Planned Parenthood Federation America’s trade show was “inadequate.” Planned Parenthood is claiming CMP violated the “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” (RICO) law when CMP investigators went undercover at Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation trade shows and meetings in...

    During the Democrat debate last night, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren said she would force Americans to fund abortions, adding that young people and poor people need to be able to have access to killing their children. “On Roe v. Wade, can we just pause for a minute here. I lived in an America where abortion was illegal. And rich women still got abortions…What we’re talking about now is that the people who are denied access to abortion are the poor, are the young,” she said. This is not the first time Warren has said Americans should be forced to fund...

    The Atlantic via MSN ^ | 10/16/19 | Ronald Brownstein
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to answer repeated questions at Tuesday night’s debate about how she would fund Medicare for All underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the idea’s huge price tag — a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. That’s more than the federal government’s total cost...

    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least we’re all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- “which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) during Tuesday evening’s debate over her refusal to admit that her Medicare for All plan would require an increase in middle class taxes. “Let me be clear on this. Costs will go up for the wealthy. They will go up for big corporations. And for middle-class families, they will go down,” Warren said when asked if her proposal would require an increase in middle class taxes. “I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle-class families.” The...

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio—At an event in an ice cream shop downtown in this small suburb of Columbus, hours before Democrats’ presidential debate blocks away, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez held court with a dozen or so young, rising Ohio Democrats to declare that the national party was here for a reason. “We’re here in Ohio because Ohio’s a battleground,” Perez said, “and I’m confident we can win Ohio.” Perez wasn’t just trying to cheer up the troops. He was weighing in on a live, controversial question: Should Democrats give up on Ohio? For more than half a century, this question...

    Presidential hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., did not mince words when she took aim at new abortion laws in Republican-led states, and promised to take action to counter such measures if she wins in 2020. Several states, such as Georgia, passed "heartbeat bills," which would forbid abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, typically after six weeks -- when many women do not yet know they are pregnant. Last week, Alabama banned nearly all abortions at any point in time, even in cases of rape or incest. "This is dangerous," she told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." "It...

    A question about Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush’s friendship drew the ire of Democratic presidential candidates and viewers alike following Tuesday night’s debate hosted by CNN and The New York Times. After the three-hour televised event, viewers and some Democratic hopefuls slammed debate moderator Anderson Cooper’s final question of the evening, which did not focus on what many thought could have been more important issues, like climate change. “Last week, Ellen DeGeneres was criticized after she and former President George W. Bush were seen laughing together at a football game. Ellen defended their friendship, saying, ‘We’re all...
