Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., slammed Planned Parenthood Monday, accusing the nation's largest abortion provider of pushing women into abortions for the purpose of harvesting their babies' tissue for profit.
Rubio, who appeared on KCCI 8 in Des Moines, Iowa, spoke on a host of issues that included religious liberty, Iran, Kim Davis, immigration, and the current political landscape.
"Planned Parenthood has been exposed for the trafficking of human fetal tissue," declared Rubio, who asserted that Planned Parenthood needed a "thorough investigation" by the U.S. Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service, something he said "is not happening now." more >>
Donald Trump may be leading in many national polls, but he lags far behind in a poll gauging his popularity among a key demographic — women.
According to a straw poll of those attending the National Federation of Republican Women's recent convention, Carly Fiorina is trouncing Trump among GOP women. A whopping 27% of respondents named her as their first choice, but a mere 14% favored Donald Trump. After Fiorina's stellar performance in last week's debate, my guess is that gap will widen even more.
And, it's no wonder. Fiorina is winsome, articulate and classy. She's everything every mother hopes her daughters will be. The Donald is offensive, vulgar and juvenile. He's everything every mother hopes her sons will not to be. more >>
The U.S. Senate failed to move forward on a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks gestation, when a fetus can feel pain.
Known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the bill failed on Tuesday morning to receieve the necessary 60 votes to advance to a vote.
"What I am asking every colleague is this: look in your hearts and help us stand up for the most innocent life," said Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in advance of the vote. more >>
Former Hewlett Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina received an ovation during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate after she strongly denounced Planned Parenthood and implied that the Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to force a presidential veto to spending legislation that wouldn't fund the abortion giant.
As the topic of whether or not Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to defund Planned Parenthood was raised at the CNN debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ohio Gov. John Kasich argued that it is pointless to attempt defunding Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution, if President Barack Obama is just going to veto such legislation.
With the GOP in control of both the House and Senate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Fiorina responded to Kasich's veto argument stating that conservatives should not back down from their opposition to Planned Parenthood's $500 million in annual federal funding just because Obama is sure to veto. more >>
"Minority Report" actress Meagan Good is speaking out about the importance of encouraging young women to abstain from sex in a way that's seemingly not religious.
"I speak to young women because I think a lot of the images that are out there now teach women that they need to be a certain kind of way in order to get attention or be considered valuable. ... I do encourage them to wait but I'm not preachy or religious," Good, 34, said in a Philly.com. report.
"I feel like if you have a better sense of self and you love yourself the right person will wait for you. ... For my marriage ... there was a solid, 'I could spend the rest of my life with you and you could be my partner on this entire journey' — and I respect you and I love you — and then there's the icing on the cake." more >>
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice may be serving a 15-month prison sentence, but that hasn't stopped the reality television star from leading her family in prayer.
"Oh please God, bring me home to my family as soon as possible and bless my four daughters and my husband," Giudice prays along with her husband, Joe, in the preview of Bravo's three-part special, "Teresa Checks In."
The 43-year-old Catholic reality television star began serving time last January after being convicted of committing bankruptcy fraud in 2014. Despite her circumstances, her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., told E! that Giudice is staying strong in her faith. more >>
