New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo will likely run for President in 2016. His favorability ratings are at record highs, he’s led some of the most productive legislative sessions in New York state history and he can deliver an impressive speech – a not so unimportant skill in this day and age.

At this point it’s impossible to tell if he’ll win, but ... More
Last year Planned Parenthood performed 333,964 abortions. that’s one abortion every 94 seconds, for an entire year.
Ninety-two percent of pregnant women who walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic for services get an abortion.
By contrast PP made only 2,303 adoption referrals, or one every 3 hours and 40 minutes, the amount of time it took them to do 145 abortions.
This rise in abortions... More
From Time's coverage.
The Jan. 14 cover of Time Magazine states, “40 Years Ago, Abortion-rights Activists won an Epic Victory With Roe v. Wade. They’ve Been Losing Ever Since. “
Of course Time magazine is right. It is axiomatic, it is the story of our times, it is the thing every pro-lifer knows: We’re winning this battle.
I can’t understand why colleagues of mine are doubting this... More
Bitterly, that is. Pro-abortion activists are losing? Really? If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Cheap.
After the election, I wrote about how the campaign had in fact been about values, just not values that I and other pro-lifers hold. In fact, we’d been too silent. For at least the second cycle of national elections, we – as part of the family values movement &... More
You’ll never believe he said it.
President Obama is responsible for some of the most moving pro-life rhetoric I’ve heard:
This is our first task: caring for our children. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.

If there’s even one step we can take to save a child, then surely we have an obligatio... More
On Friday, we were all shocked and stunned to hear of the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. It was an unspeakable crime.
Every time I see a headline of human tragedy, particularly involving large numbers of innocent people, I can’t help putting it in the context of abortion. There’s a noon Mass that I sometimes frequent and one of the attendees, when asked to share additional prayers f... More
There is only one abortion clinic in Mississippi, and that one may be about to shut down.
According to an article at Mother Jones the law recently passed by Mississippi requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have official admitting privileges at a local hospital has proven to be just too-high a hurdle to overcome.
They didn’t outlaw abortion, they just recognize that abortion has a not-ins... More
In her election-week column, conservative polemicist Ann Coulter gushed about what she viewed as Romney’s superlative candidacy, and the tragedy of his defeat:
Romney was the perfect candidate, and he was the president this country needed right now. It’s less disheartening that a president who wrecked American health care, quadrupled gas prices, added $6 trillion to the national de... More
The most pro-abortion person ever to be in the White House; the person who has launched the most significant assault on religious liberty in this country since our founding… won the Catholic vote.
That adequately explains why I am entirely and completely unimpressed with the anger of the pastor at a parish who called me, irate that a group of volunteers I organized were putting pro-life leaf... More
Romney has been endorsed by many pro-life activists and activist organizations.
Right off the bat, let it be known that Mitt Romney was my fourth choice among the GOP primary candidates.
Check my writing in this space from that time and you’ll see me talking up Gingrich, Perry, and Santorum, with barely a word in support of Romney. Since he won the nomination I’ve written a whole lot ... More
