At a campaign town hall event at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, Sen. Marco Rubio used a question on abortion from a reporter to focus on Hillary Clinton, claiming she is the one with "radical" positions.
Perhaps trying to show Rubio is out of step with voters on abortion, he was asked whether a fertilized egg should have legal protections, the candidate used the question as an opportunity to defend life and vigorously attacked the Democrat frontrunner.
"I don't know what you're talking — I believe all life is worthy of the protection of our laws. That's what I believe," declared Rubio. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham said the defeat of the Hilary Clinton-endorsed Houston "Equal Rights Ordinance," which would allow transgendered men to use women's bathrooms, in an "outrageous" referendum is a "victory and great news" for the Texan city.
"This outrageous referendum would've left women's restrooms wide open to registered male sex offenders and other sexual predators," wrote Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in a Facebook post.
"In spite of high-profile endorsements from the White House, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and Houston's gay activist mayor—this outrageous referendum lost. That's a victory and great news for Houston!" more >>

Despite the recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Education against a suburban Chicago high school, no school has to allow boys in girls locker rooms, or vice-versa. That's according to Matt Sharp, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF — a group that offers free legal counsel to any school that adopts its policy on transgender issues and gets sued.
"We believe (our policy) is legally sound," Sharp said. "And, to show you how serious we are, if you adopt our policy and you get sued, the Alliance Defending Freedom is willing to represent you free of charge, so that you're not out-of-pocket for taking a stand on what is right and what common sense says we ought to do."
The ADF advocates separate changing facilities for transgender students and sent its sample policy to Palatine Township High School District 211, where a male student, who identifies as female, is demanding use of the girls locker room. more >>
To say that a former Planned Parenthood facility in Texas has been given new life would be an understatement.
A commercial property located in Bryan-College Station that once housed a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is now the home of a healthcare facility, pregnancy center and a pro-life organization.
Last week Hope Pregnancy Centers celebrated the one year anniversary of its closing on the Bryan-College Station complex. more >>
The Obama administration has given a Chicago-area school district one month to allow a transgender student full use of a girls locker room or else it could be stripped of millions in federal funding.
The Civil Rights Office of the United States Department of Education has deemed that Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Illinois, has violated Title IX, a law that prohibits discrimination based on sex, because it will not grant an unidentified biological male student unconditional use of the girls locker room and showers.
After the unidentified student filed a complaint with the CRO in 2013, the CRO and school district have spent nearly two years negotiating the issue. more >>
