Prominent abortion activist and president of NARAL Pro-Choice America Ilyse Hogue told the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday that she got a "compassionate" abortion years ago because her pregnancy came at an inconvenient time in her life.
Hogue, who spoke the day after Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards addressed the convention, seemingly contradicted the head of the nation's largest abortion provider, who attacked Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during her remarks Tuesday for claiming that pregnancy is an "inconvenience."
In Hogue's speech, she not only praised women's rights to get an abortion by saying that in order for women to succeed in life they need the "tools," "trust" and "chance to chart" their "own path," but also explained her reasoning why she decided to terminate the life of her unborn child. more >>
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the reason many white males prefer Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over his rival Hillary Clinton is because of the issues of guns, gays and God.
"I think that, so many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G's, God being the woman's right to choose," Pelosi said in an interview with PBS's Judy Woodruff on Wednesday.
Pelosi did not elaborate on that comment, but Trump and Clinton stand on opposing sides on a number of the above-mentioned issues. more >>
There are few sins God hates as much as shedding innocent blood, especially the blood of children. Seeing that Hillary Clinton is a radically pro-abortion candidate and seeing that the Democratic platform reinforces those radical views, can a Christian vote for Hillary in good conscience?
In Jeremiah 19, God explained why the people of Judah were about to go into exile: It was because they worshiped idols and because they "filled this place [speaking of Jerusalem] with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal — something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind" (Jer. 19:4-5).
Because of these heinous sins, Jerusalem was destroyed and the Temple of Yahweh burned to the ground, with tens of thousands going into exile. more >>
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, a Catholic, made a private agreement with Hillary Clinton to flip-flop and support calls by her and the Democratic Party Platform to repeal a longstanding ban against taxpayer funds being used to pay for abortions.
Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson and Kaine's communications director Amy Dudley have said that Kaine, a senator from Virginia and the state's former governor, has privately told Clinton that he will support the party's move to repeal the Hyde Amendment, Bloomberg reports.
Kaine has in the past supported the Hyde Amendment — a measure that mostly bans the use of Medicaid tax dollars from being used for abortion services and has been attached to yearly appropriations bills since 1976. He has also supported parental consent measures and even authorized the "Choose Life" license plate when he was governor of Virginia in 2009. more >>
Hailed by media commentators including Jake Tapper and Anderson Cooper on CNN, award-winning documentary 3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy will release on iTunes and Amazon Video on August 2. The hour-long film chronicles the true story of Kermit Gosnell — the convicted doctor whose shuttered abortion clinic still stands, only two miles from the bustling city center hosting the Democratic National Convention this week.
Film director and citizen journalist David Altrogge cannot help but express outrage after careful research of the facts.
"Real women and babies lost their lives — because the Pennsylvania Department of State and the Department of Health chose to look the other way," he said in a recent interview. "Whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, can't we at least agree that women deserve better?" more >>
Former President Bill Clinton painted his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, as the "best darn change-maker I have ever known" and the only "real" choice for president Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention.
In perhaps the longest speech yet of the convention being held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Clinton ignited passionate support for his wife among delegates when he recalled her experience as a public servant who spent much of her career working to help the disenfranchised and promoting social justice — a concept she was introduced to, he said, by her Methodist youth minister during the early stages of her career.
And all the while as she did much of this work she was also juggling motherhood and marriage. more >>
