A major pro-choice organization is boycotting hospitals with maternity wards because they "humanize fetuses."
The National Abortion Rights Action League tweeted recently that they were opting to boycott all hospitals that provide maternity care for treating fetuses like they were babies.
"We'll boycott All Maternity Wards for they use #antichoice scheme of humanizing fetuses to convince mothers to love children — #NotBuyingIt," tweeted NARAL. more >>
When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, was enacted, Americans were promised a healthcare system in which insurance companies would be held accountable and patients would have access to affordable care.
Six years later, however, the reality has proven to be quite different — a plan that was supposed to mend our nation's fractured healthcare system has driven up healthcare costs, decreased market competition, and ultimately harmed patients.
Last month, UnitedHealth — the nation's largest health insurer — announced that it expects to lose more than $500 million through plans they offered under the ACA in 2016. Last week, Anthem came out with disappointing fourth quarter earnings as well, citing Obamacare plans. Despite an increase in enrollment, in November 2015 UnitedHealth officials were in talks of pulling out of the ACA exchanges in 2017, citing losses of over $425 million. As a result, UnitedHealth and other large insurers are narrowing networks and raising premiums to cut costs, gaining profits for themselves while hurting consumers. more >>
The wife of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz recently told a radio broadcast that her husband is running "to show this country the face of the God that we serve."
In an interview with South Carolina conservative radio host Vince Coakley, Heidi Cruz explained that she would be supporting the Cruz campaign even if she were not married to the Republican presidential hopeful.
"When I thought about doing it for our country, it became very clear to me that our family must be in this race. And it also became clear to me that we are at a cultural crossroads in our country," said Mrs. Cruz. more >>
As much of the media focuses on America's racial divide from the perspective of minority communities, Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were given the opportunity Thursday night to discuss overlooked problems facing America's white population.
As the two candidates discussed how to ease the contentious race relations in the United States during the PBS Newshour debate in Wisconsin, moderator Gwen Ifill switched the conversation to a lesser discussed topic.
"Let me turn this on its head, because when we talk about race in this country, we always talk about African-Americans, people of color," Ifill, an African-American, said. "I want to talk about white people, OK?" more >>
Conservative TV personality and radio host Glenn Beck, who is a Mormon, blasted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and suggested that the idea that he has even read the Bible is a "crock of [expletive]."
Speaking at a rally in South Carolina in support of rival presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, Beck said that "too many people are looking at Trump and believing that man has ever opened a Bible … that's the biggest crock of [expletive] I've ever heard."
Florida Senator Marco Rubio has decided to stand behind a piece of legislation that for now keeps the ban on women from being required to register for a hypothetical military draft.
National Review reported Thursday that both Rubio and fellow Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz have decided to cosponsor legislation from Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, that keeps the ban on drafting women and leaves sole power to Congress to change the rules for registration in the future if needed.
"Senator Rubio agrees with Senator Lee that Congress needs to determine the future of the Selective Service system and is working on legislation to codify that role and plans to support it," said Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos. more >>
