In response to Hillary Clinton's defense of partial-birth and late-term abortions at Wednesday night's debate, a California obstetrician-gynecologist has reportedly taken to Facebook to decry the claim that third-trimester abortion is necessary to help save the life of the mother.
The Democratic presidential nominee defended her opposition to bans on late-term and partial-birth abortions by arguing that there are cases in which mothers and families are forced to make "the most heartbreaking, painful decisions" because they get news that the woman's health may be in jeopardy.
As Clinton effectively supports a woman's right to abort up until birth, she has defended her opposition to 20-week late-term abortion bans by saying that bans should only be put in place at the "very end" of the third trimester and should allow for health of the mother exceptions. more >>
The Babylon Bee reported this week that Planned Parenthood, in celebration of their 100th birthday, announced their plans to provide post-birth abortions.
According to the Babylon Bee, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood stated that "A woman should be able to determine her own destiny … That's why we're now allowing women to bring in any clump of cells younger than eighteen months, and they can count on us to be their advocate and take care of the problem right away."
While this is a Christian news satire site, the idea of post-birth abortion is not far-fetched — not at all. It is actually the new frontier of the pro-choice/abortion movement. more >>
I spoke at length this week with a national reporter in Washington, D.C. and discussed the election. I want to share some of that conversation with you. I do not trust either candidate. What do you do when you can't trust either candidate? That is a very difficult decision.
Neither candidate has the character to lead this nation. This will be the most reluctant vote I will have ever cast. Not voting is not a viable option. As a believer, we have a responsibility to participate in the electoral processes of our nation. That is what good citizens do.
In this election we are not voting for a good candidate, but for a good platform of what the culture of the party is. We have two party platforms before us. Go to the internet and just type in "Democratic Platform" and "Republican Platform." I have read them both several times. They are as different as night and day. more >>
A women's rights group has said that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was wrong to suggest to the American public during Wednesday evening's presidential debate that the practice of forced abortions is a thing of the past in China.
Clinton said during the debate on the topic of abortion that she has "been to countries where governments either forced women to have abortions, like they used to do in China," using past tense to refer to the controversial practice.
Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, said in a statement shared with The Christian Post that the forced abortions very much continue, however. more >>
Evangelical theologian Wayne Grudem has again thrown his support to Republican nominee Donald Trump, stating that he supports the candidate's policies rather than the man himself.
Grudem recently garnered headlines twice. First, for claiming that Trump was a "morally good choice" (here and here), and second, for his decision to withdraw his support over the nominee's behavior and comments towards women.
In a column published Wednesday on the conservative site Townhall.com, Grudem took a third stab at explaining his presidential vote choice, writing that he believed the election came down to only two viable options, voting for Trump or allowing Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton to win. more >>
Democratic Party nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton defended the legalization of aborting babies up until the moment of delivery in the third presidential debate.
At the final presidential debate between her and Republican Party nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday, Clinton was asked by Fox News' Chris Wallace her views on to what extent abortion should be regulated.
