Or, at least, his recent comments make it seem that way.
BFFsCharlie Wilson, the Catholic former pro-life former congressman from Ohio’s sixth district wants his seat back. Charlie Wilson voted for Obamacare. He was one of those on-the-fence last-minute votes that put Obamacare over the top.

Probably the best person to discuss the ongoing dispute between the USCCB, Kathleen Sebelius of HHS, and the Obama administration is Steven Wagner. He was the director of the Human Trafficking Program at Health and Human Services from 2003-2006, and was the architect of the original program to aid victims of human trafficking administered by the USCCB.

Being a Catholic in public life is simply being a Catholic. From a conversation I had with Thad McCotter, congressman from Michigan, this week:
LOPEZ: How does being Catholic affect how you approach public life?

Obama's Kosovo? Or Somalia?
I’m with Brad on Obama and Libya. Except when I’m not.
I would love to see Obama’s wings clipped. The czars, the health care takeover, the use of TARP funds to buy auto companies, the energy policy aimed to drag us back to the heady days of the 1970s (if not the 1570s), the “beer summit,” the bowing, the fecklessness, the arrogance (th... More
A curious thing happened last night on the way to the U.S. House of Representatives Chamber: Democrats forgot their notes.
Steven Ertelt has a lengthy report detailing the strange behavior exhibited by pro-abort Democrats, who were expected to press for amendments to overturn pro-life budget provisions (introduced by pro-life Republicans) during last night’s debate on the Continuing Resoluti... More
House, M.D., that is. Lisa Edelstein, co-star of the Fox medical drama, is starring in a new MoveOn ad, attacking House Republicans.

The new pro-life House of Representatives has scheduled two hearings next week on bills that will make sure the federal government stays out of the abortion business and protects the conscience of pro-life health care providers.
On Tuesday February 8 at 4 pm, the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution will have a hearing on H.R. 3, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Ac... More
Lila Rose of LiveAction has once again exposed how Planned Parenthood victimizes women:
The nation’s largest abortion business has been caught in video in an undercover investigation covering up for and coaching a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers and inquiring about how to obtain abortions for the women they victimized.
The sting operation has the actors looking into testing for sexu... More
