Exploiting a national tragedy about killing to advocate more killing is indefensible. But that's what Planned Parenthood did.
A pitfall of social media such as Facebook and Twitter is that we can find ourselves saying something we shouldn't.
While most of us can delete the offending message before too much damage is done, well-known people and organizations can't. By the time they realize their mistake, it's been widely seen, forwarded, and captured for posterity. more >>
A new poll shows that about three-quarters of pro-choice Americans agree that abortion clinics should be held to the same safety standards as other surgical centers, showing that last month's Supreme Court decision striking down components of a pro-life Texas law is out of step with the American public.
A Marist poll released Monday morning and commissioned by the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus finds that 78 percent of all Americans and 74 percent of pro-choice Americans believe that abortion clinics should be held to the same safety standards that other outpatient surgical centers must comply with.
Meanwhile, 77 percent of African-Americans and 82 percent of Hispanics also agree that abortion facilities need to be held to those same standards. more >>
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the vice-presidential pick of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, has been accused of supporting abortion rights by pro-life groups despite his expressed Roman Catholic faith and church attendance.
National Right to Life president Carol Tobias said that Kaine has voted against the pro-life position throughout his political career, including his recent co-sponsorship of the "Women's Health Protection Act" (S.217), which takes down state limitations on abortions.
"Like Hillary Clinton, Sen. Tim Kaine supports the current policy of abortion on demand," Tobias said. more >>
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee Saturday reacted to Hillary Clinton's VP choice, criticizing Sen. Tim Kaine's pro-abortion votes but also praising him as a "genuine" guy whose "faith is real."
"Let's be clear, Tim Kaine is definitely a liberal. And even though he says he's personally against abortion, he still always governs with a pro-abortion vote," Huckabee said on Fox News, adding that he doesn't know "what that's supposed to mean."
But, Huckabee also said, that on a personal level, he believes that Kaine is "an honorable guy." more >>
On July 13, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill known as the Conscience Protection Act — intended to protect the rights of health care providers, churches and other groups that object to participating in abortion. Seated in the House Gallery, one man watched the vote with all the intensity of a general going into war.
Jim Garlow, father of eight children and pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, California, sat with his wife and a dozen congregants who prayed and discussed events unfolding on the House floor. While others visit the nation's capital city for summer vacation, this team came with purpose.
Nearly two years ago, Garlow was thrust into a battle with the State of California — when his church objected to a new state mandate involving abortion. Since then, he has found that the pro-choice bias in state and federal government is no casual affair. more >>
I know that you and Mr. Clinton have been considered real friends of the African American community to the point that, before President Obama's election, your husband was jokingly referred to as the nation's first black president.
I also know that you have identified proudly as an "old fashioned Methodist" and that you warmly welcomed a contingent of African American pastors who laid hands on you and anointed you as the next president. more >>
