GOP Fails Pro-Life Voters by Refusing to Defund Planned Parenthood

Written by Carly Hoilman

As the final weeks of the GOP-controlled Congress draw to a close, pro-life voters look on with great disappointment at the Republican politicians who failed to follow through on their most crucial promise: to defund Planned Parenthood. In about a month, Democrats will take over the U.S. House of Representatives and any hope of stripping the abortion giant of federal funding will pass away.

With precious little time left in the lame-duck session, GOP congressional leaders have chosen to ignore the persistent urgings of pro-life leaders.Continue Reading

“You’re Pro-Birth, Not Pro-Life” Is Just a Terrible Argument

Written by Peter Heck

I know that abortion apologists have come to believe it is their strongest counterpoint to say, “You are pro-birth, not pro-life,” but it is not.  At all.

The bizarre statement is utterly false, of course, given the overwhelming numbers of Christian and pro-life adoption agencies, care centers, churches, missions, and foster homes that nurture hurting and abandoned children.  But to demonstrate how morally repugnant of an argument this is for the left, suppose for a second that it was a true statement.… Continue Reading

New Human Slaughterhouse/Spa Opens in Skokie, Illinois

Abattoir: slaughterhouse

Written by Laurie Higgins

Fictional 21st Century Woman at her “reveal” party:

Mom, Dad, Family, Friends, there’s something inside me!  Lol, no, it’s not a tumor. It’s a human. It’s got boy DNA (so, not me. lol). I just need to find out if he’s defective. Oh, and I’ll revisit my life goals and career path, check my bank account, and meditate on how I feel about him. If I choose to let him live, y’all can call him a baby!

SPOTLIGHT: Prayer and Fasting to End Abortion? Really?

Written by David E. Smith

We start off our first Spotlight podcast of September with a timely conversation as Monte Larrick hosts Steve Karlen, North American Director of 40 Days for Life. This year’s 40 Days for Life campaign will run from September 26 through November 4.

The purpose of the campaign is “to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigils outside abortion centers to end abortion.” Steve stresses that prayer is the foundation of 40 Days for Life and the means by which God’s people are able to “overturn Roe v.Continue Reading

Will the GOP Back Its Pro-Life Platform With Action? (Video)

Written by Tamara Jackson

Our nation was founded unlike any other nation in history. England embraced a feudal system, followed by a system of peerage and a (dead) state church whose head was the country’s sovereign and often tyrannical ruler.

France endured a godless revolution, resulting in a political system constrained by the motto: “liberté, égalité, fraternité.” (i.e. “liberty, equality, brotherhood”)

That sounds noble, but devoid of God and godly principles, only freedom and equality are left, both determined precariously by the whims of the masses rather than transcendent Truth.… Continue Reading

WATCH: Rand Paul Fires At Republicans For Blocking His Amendment To Defund Planned Parenthood

Written by Kassy Dillon

Senator Rand Paul’s recently introduced amendment that would defund Planned Parenthood in the Senate appropriations package for Defense, Health, Human Services, and Education is being blocked by Republicans, he claims.

“Planned Parenthood ends the lives of 320,000 babies each year,” Paul said on the Senate floor Thursday. “That’s about 900 babies every day. Planned Parenthood receives over $400,000,000 of taxpayer money.”

“The government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions, but everybody knows that the taxpayers really are cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortions bills,” he added.… Continue Reading

Left Claims The Moral High Ground – For What?

Written by Robert Knight

The progressive Left is in a panic over the U.S. Senate’s coming confirmation vote on President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

How do we know this? They keep telling us.

In a national conference call sponsored by People for the American Way (PFAW), U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, said, “We’re in the fight of our lives.”

PFAW’s Marge Baker echoed Ms. Warren by exclaiming that this is “a critical, critical, critical fight.”

Well, they’re right.… Continue Reading

Shifting the Roe Burden Back to Schumer

Written by William J. Watkins, Jr.

Much like King Nebuchadnezzar’s instructions to the three Hebrew boys, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has telegraphed to Judge Brett Kavanaugh a way out of the fiery furnace of confirmation.  Kavanaugh need not bow down to a golden image, but he must give obeisance to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark abortion case.  “The onus is on the nominee,” Schumer has declared, “to show where he or she might stand” on Roe.  … Continue Reading
