Republican presidential candidates and those expected to be candidates are divided in their reactions to the last Friday's U.S. Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling, with some ready to continue fighting for marriage and others suggesting it is time for conservatives to "move on" from the marriage issue and begin focusing on other concerns.
While appearing on CBS "Face the Nation" on Sunday, potential 2016 Republican candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich argued that there are many other issues facing America right now and it is time to pay attention to those concerns.

A website claiming to have been created by a 26-year-old pregnant woman, who intends to have an abortion on July 10, has issued a challenge to pro-life donors, stating that if they want to save her unborn baby's life, they must donate $1 million in three days through the website or else she will have the abortion.
