When not co-hosting alongside the ladies of "The View," Candace Cameron Bure is out and about on a promotional tour for her upcoming series premiere, "Fuller House." During a recent sit down at "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday morning, the actress shared her strong views on feminism and women who are pro-life.
Admitting that she has yet to choose a presidential candidate to vote for, Bure discussed the comments of former secretary of state Madeleine Albright's: "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other," Albright stated in an effort to get women to support Hillary Clinton's candidacy.
The actress was noticeably upset by Albright's comment for her casual mention of hell and proceeded to share her opinion on feminism. more >>
The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) released an analysis of abortion as an election issue. The analysis and the corresponding Forbes editorial, authored by AEI senior fellow Karlyn Bowman, attempts to argue that abortion is a relatively unimportant issue.
In her op-ed Bowman states that when voters are asked to rank the importance of various issues, abortion usually comes in near the bottom. She also notes that relatively low percentage of voters cast their vote solely on the issue of abortion.
But a closer look at AEI's analysis indicates that abortion has actually increased in importance over the past 20 years. The AEI analysis also provides robust evidence that there are political benefits for candidates who take a pro-life position. more >>

Roman Catholic Church leaders in Latin American countries dealing with the outbreak of the Zika virus are pushing back against groups that are promoting abortion for women who are pregnant.
The Zika virus, which is transmitted through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitos, was once confined to parts of Africa and Asia, but has now spread to 21 countries in the Americas and the Caribbean. Symptoms from the virus are suspected to cause neurological birth defects such as microcephaly, a brain deformity, but medical researchers have yet to confirm the link.
Auxiliary Bishop Leonardo Ulrich Steiner of the Catholic Church in Brazil, a nation with hundreds of confirmed cases of Zika, denounced a recent call from the United Nations to loosen abortion restrictions to allow women who've contracted the virus to abort their pregnancies in the first, second or third trimesters. more >>

This week, a coalition of pro-life and faith-based groups — most based in Texas — are coming together under the banner Texas Loves Life. We're not doing it for press conferences, lobbying or other common reasons. The coalition Texas Loves Life exists solely to pray for the Supreme Court, believing for life to be upheld as the court considers an important Texas pro-life law in the current session.
Carol Everett, founder of The Heidi Group based in Round Rock, Texas, addressed pro-life faith leaders on our first conference call (recording now online) this past Monday.
"We recently surveyed our network of 183 life-affirming pregnancy centers in Texas, who reported increases as high as 300 percent of women using our ultrasound and other services," said Everett. more >>
