    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has affirmed his support of abortion “under any circumstance.” In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, he said, “Republicans in state legislatures will stop at nothing to get rid of Roe — and we have to be just as strong in our defense of it.” According to the former vice president, Republicans “are trying to get these laws appealed to the Supreme Court in the hope that Trump’s justices will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. It’s wrong....

    As part of his plan to protect the commonwealth of Virginia from the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus, Gov. Ralph Northam determined that citizens should not be allowed to attend church or worship services, but are fine travel to an abortion clinic and undergo an elective procedure like surgical abortion. On Monday, March 23, Northam instituted an executive order making it a criminal offense to hold or attend a church service with more than 10 people.The mandate classifies attending a church service with more than 10 individuals as a class one misdemeanor. Punishment for a class one misdemeanor includes jail...

    The highest-ranking Republican woman in the House won her toughest primary in 20 years by abandoning her pro-choice positions for pro-life votes. Less than two decades ago, President Donald Trump described himself as “pro-choice in every respect.” He’s now the most pro-life president in modern history, rolling back Obama-era abortion funding, and nominating conservative Supreme Court justices. Critics and conservatives alike remain skeptical that he is personally pro-life, yet pro-lifers offer him fervent support due to his policies. However transactional his evolution on the issue seems, it may be having a broader effect down the ballot. Rep. Kay Granger is...

    I remember once when I was a teenager asking my father “What time is it?” He responded by saying, “There are two kinds of people in this world – those who ask what time it is, and those who wear watches.” I could not resist the temptation to respond by saying, “No, the two kinds of people are those who oversimplify the world by breaking it into dichotomies, and those who don’t.” Of course, he didn’t think that was funny. And now I regret saying it because sometimes things do break down into simple dichotomies. One example is support for...

    SANTA FE – On the surface, there’s been little debate and no formal action on abortion-related issues during this year’s 30-day legislative session. But the uneasy stalemate could be broken after this year’s election cycle, and both abortion opponents and abortion rights advocates have traveled to the Roundhouse to rally support for their respective positions – and keep the pressure on lawmakers. Then there’s Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who recently told attendees at a Planned Parenthood event that a long-dormant state abortion ban will be “gone” as soon as there are enough votes in the Senate to pass a repeal...
  • Colorado House panel kills bill that would mandate medical care for babies born alive after abortions

    Colorado legislators have rejected a bill that would grant legal protections for babies born alive after abortions, yet another state-level flare-up over the hot-button issue. House Bill 1068 threatened $100,000 fines for physicians who fail to "exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious physician would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age." It also required that any born-alive child be immediately transferred to a hospital. “Colorado’s legislative hearings on late-term abortion show just how extreme and entrenched...

    An Alabama Democrat state lawmaker from Birmingham has introduced legislation that, if passed would mandate, “every Alabama man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first,” according to a report from Alabama-based Yellowhammer News. The bill, filed by State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D) on Thursday, is viewed by some a response to the 2019 passage by the state legislature of the Human Life Protection Act, a law that is currently making its way through the federal courts that ban abortion with very few exceptions.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is setting the stage for the upper chamber of Congress to vote on two abortion bills: One bans late-term abortion, and the other punishes doctors who do not administer proper care to children who survive an abortion. The first bill, proposed by South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, prohibits all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except in cases of rape, incest, and the endangerment of the life of the mother. The second is proposed by Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, which mandates doctors "exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who...

    Despite Swiss Air’s ten-year affiliation with Läderach, the airline dropped the chocolatier after protests and extensive vandalism by left-wing activists, homosexuals, and young socialists, according to a report by LifeSite News. Jürg Läderach, who owns the high-end chocolate company, is also the president of “Christianity for Today” (CFT), a Swiss evangelical organization Last fall, activists attacked a Läderach store in Basel, Switzerland, using Butyric acid, forcing the store to close for two days. This assault was just one instance of vandalism against the chocolatier, which reportedly took place at seven different stores. According to the Swiss news magazine Beobachter, negative...

    A pro-abortion amendment to the U.S. Constitution cannot move forward, despite abortion activists’ attempts to revive it past the deadline, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) technically would ensure equality for women through the U.S. Constitution. However, pro-life leaders long have warned that it would be used to end all abortion restrictions and allow unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to birth. U.S. Congress set a seven-year deadline for the ratification of the amendment, but it ended in 1982. Some pro-abortion lawmakers have ignored the deadline and passed the amendment anyway,...

    Dear Pro-Choice College Students, Something has been bothering me for a while. As the president of my college’s pro-life group, I encounter many of you. While I disagree with your position on abortion, we have often had wonderful conversations. Due to your willingness to dialogue about this issue, some of you are now a part of the pro-life movement, having seen the error of the pro-choice view. But, there is a faction of pro-choice students I have encountered who are radical bullies, and it is these who frustrate me more than anything else. Both I and the group’s vice president...

    Pro-life policies within the United States are growing “like a steady drumbeat,” according to an abortion analyst. State trend analyst for the Guttmacher Institute Elizabeth Nash spoke out about the increase in pro-life legislation across the United States in an interview with BuzzFeed News. The analyst, who works in Guttmacher’s Washington, D.C., office and has studied abortion legislation at the state level since 1999, noted that pro-abortion policies took a hit in 2019. “It’s been a rough decade for those that support abortion rights,” Nash told Buzzfeed, adding that pro-life policies are growing “like a steady drumbeat getting louder each...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has become somewhat of an independent darling during her run for the White House...During a recent appearance on "The Rubin Report," Gabbard surprised many by vocalizing her personal opposition to third-trimester abortions: "I take a more libertarian position on this issue that government really shouldn’t be in that place of dictating to a woman the choice that she should make...I think there should be some restrictions, though." "For me personally, I would not make that choice for myself, but I don’t believe that I should be telling anybody else the kinds of decisions that they should make...

    Facebook is censoring pro-life group Live Action, claiming that its content is "false news" and using two doctors that perform abortions as fact-checkers.The social media giant marked Live Action as “false” for promoting in a video the perspective that abortion is "never medically necessary," a view, the group stressed, that is held by thousands of OB-GYNs across the globe.Live Action said last week it was notified that their page's reach will be reduced for the "repeated sharing of false news."The third-party mechanism that Facebook used last week to determine the group's content was "inaccurate" relied upon the viewpoints of Robyn...

    Yvonne Strahovski scooped Emmy, Golden Globe and Critics' Circle nominations for her star turn as the villainous Serena Joy in The Handmaid's Tale, which famously tackles the role of patriarchy and religion in suppressing women's rights. And the Sydney-born actor is happy to comment on the increasing similarities between the fictional dystopia and our current reality: "There are things happening now that directly reflect the themes of the show. It's a scary world we're living in," she says. Of the current debate raging in the US over women's reproductive rights, she says, "No one and no law has the right...

    Last week, Gallup released its annual public-opinion poll on abortion policy, and its results contain some good news for abortion opponents. According to the survey, a plurality of Americans now identify as pro-life, with 49 percent of respondents calling themselves “pro-life,” and 46 percent calling themselves “pro-choice.” This is the first Gallup poll since 2013 in which a higher percentage of respondents identified as “pro-life” rather than “pro-choice.” The new survey also found that the percentage of Americans who think abortion should either be “illegal in all circumstances” or “legal in only a few circumstances” increased from 53 to 60...

    Remember these statements by Democrats seeking to become their party’s presidential nominee? “I believe that reproductive rights are human rights, they are civil rights, and they are non-negotiable,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said in an interview with The Atlantic earlier this month. “We must be vigilant in protecting a woman’s right to choose,” Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey said on Twitter in January. “… now more than ever, we must remain steadfast in our defense of a woman’s right to choose,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii said in a statement on the 40th anniversary of the landmark...
