After relentless and vociferous criticism from feminist organizations, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has abandoned her opposition to the over-the-counter sale to minors of the so-called “Plan B” contraception pill which can also be used to cause the abortion of a fertilized egg. This cowardly retreat by Secretary Sibelius is hardly surprising, but it is nevertheless rev... More
Though the media blackout on Kermit Gosnell was well-maintained until the verdict was announced, the dam finally broke at the end. Bit by bit, an increasing percentage of the population became aware. By necessity, once the horror of the Gosnell’s atrocities were in plain view, it was time for damage control. Forced to cover his crimes, the pro-abortion members of the media dutifully informe...

The Washington Post now reports that officials at the highest levels of the Internal Revenue Service were aware of the program to target conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status prior to the 2012 elections but that they remained silent. The deliberate and shocking targeting of conservative organizations that sought tax-exempt status stands in contrast to government collusion wit... More
In the last few days, Delaware and Rhode Island have joined the ultra-liberal bloc of mainly northeastern states that have redefined marriage. The institution of marriage has stood for thousands of years without any need of improvement, but it is now fashionable to complain that such reforms are long overdue. Accordingly, these developments were greeted with predictable pompous expressions of vind... More
As the smoke clears and the wounded are tended to following the horrific bombing in Boston yesterday, the case of America’s most prolific serial killer, Kermit Gosnell, has been once again pushed to the back of our collective consciousness. Yesterday’s tragedy, so raw and present in the minds of post-9/11 Americans, leaves little room in our thoughts for the details of Gosnell’s... More
The state legislature of North Dakota has stood up for fundamental human rights and on Friday passed two of the most far-reaching pro-life bills since Roe vs. Wade. No one knows whether Governor Jack Dalrymple will sign the bills, but the governor is irrelevant—the rights of the unborn were passed with veto-proof majorities.
North Dakota’s pro-life legislation bans abortion after six weeks of ... More
I think we have, in our hands, an achievable way of changing America in a way that will seem as sudden and earth-shaking as the 1960s civil rights revolution or the 1989 anti-Communist revolution.
But first I think it’s important to give some context. What needs to be saved about the American culture in the first place? The family.
A nation is only as strong as its foundation, and for a society,... More
On Tuesday, Roll Call ran a story about a political group striving to capture a youthful image, and in so doing, find relevance and resonance in one of the most hotly contested political issues of our age.
The group in question? None other than the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League — known to most as NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The problem that NARAL has is simple: it... More
Abortion does not save lives. It ends them. 55 million over the past 40 years to be precise.
But that irrefutable fact didn’t stop MSNBC host Toure Neblett this past week from thanking God that abortion is legal, and that in some ways it saved his life.
Just how did it save his life? you’re probably wondering.
I’ll let Mr Neblett explain:

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
