Gubernatorial Election: What to Do, What to Do…

Written by Laurie Higgins

Maybe Illinois conservatives, beaten down by Illinois politics and bad governance, badgered by fellow Republicans, and panicking because they focus too much on the short-term nightmarish picture they see before their eyes, will at the last moment fold and vote for Bruce Rauner. That would be a huge mistake.

The long-term health of the party, the state, and the nation depends not solely or even centrally on tax rates for businesses but on issues related to respect for human life, marriage, and sexuality.… Continue Reading

Written by Michael Gryboski

Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards denounced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comment calling pregnancy an “inconvenience.”

In a speech delivered at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Richards spoke about the issues she had with Trump’s stated views on women and abortion.

“Donald Trump has pledged to appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and undo decades of progress. His policies aren’t just frightening — they’re rooted in a disturbing worldview,” said Richards.

It looks like the Republican candidates were right all along.

To gin up contributions, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has sent out a fiery but fact-challenged appeal fundraising letter to would-be supporters.

This massive political involvement may come as somewhat of a surprise to those who imagine Planned Parenthood to be just a  “women’s health care provider,”  the image PPFA so carefully cultivates.… Continue Reading

New Planned Parenthood Video Promotes Obama Re-Election

Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) leaders are “clearly concerned,” said Douglas R. Scott, Jr., president of the Planned Parenthood watchdog organization Life Decisions International (LDI). “They understand that the most pro-abortion president in American history may lose to Mitt Romney–a candidate who has pledged to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.” Scott called PPAF’s latest ad/video release is a “last-minute attempt to convince pro-abortion voters to go to the polls tomorrow.” The new production is called, “Yes We Plan.”

According to PPAF, “Yes We Plan” was inspired by the 2008 pro-Obama video by hip-hop artist Will.i.am (“Yes We Can”).… Continue Reading
