Democrat presidential front runner Joe Biden has mortgaged away one of his last remaining principles in a surrender to the unceasing sprint to the radical left demanded by the party’s base. Joe Biden markets himself as a devout Catholic, and he occasionally voted for pro-life measures early in his Senate career. But as his presidential […]


The LGBT movement has successfully used corporate America to bully states into repealing or blocking laws it doesn’t like. Now the pro-abortion movement is trying to use the same playbook to strong-arm the states into repealing pro-life laws. Recall 2016, when North Carolina considered a law establishing that people had no right to use public […]


Abortion continues to be at the center of the public conversation lately in the midst of a state-by-state push by pro-lifers to change the legal regime that has resulted in nearly 60 million abortions since 1973. Meanwhile, the 2020 Democrat candidates for president are campaigning on the issue to appeal to hard-left voters. The front […]


Alabama has enacted the first law in decades to make abortion illegal again in a state. The new law is designed as the boldest and most direct challenge to Roe v. Wade in over 25 years. The law, titled the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, was passed by an overwhelming vote (74-3 in the state House and […]


Last week, a Virginia judge unilaterally declared that the state’s law requiring that only a licensed physician can perform first-trimester abortions was unconstitutional. Now, in a shocking move, that same judge has rescinded his own ruling. Henry Hudson, a federal district judge, ruled last week that a 1975 law requiring a licensed physician be on […]


After months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden has finally jumped into the presidential race. It’s early, but Biden leads the polls by a huge margin. The RealClearPolitics average of Democrat primary polls has him with a 13-point lead over the dozen-plus other candidates in the race. Biden also outperforms the rest of the […]


The Kansas Supreme Court has discovered a right to abortion in the state’s constitution in a decision striking down a ban on a brutal second-trimester abortion technique. At issue was a 2015 law prohibiting “dilation and evacuation” abortions, which involves dismembering the baby into pieces in order to remove him or her because the baby […]


Two swing state Democrat governors have chosen to stand for late-term abortion and infanticide in Easter week. If Republicans are smart, they will hammer them on it. First was North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat who was elected in 2016 by a fraction of a point in a race rife with allegations of voter […]


The seventh-largest state in the U.S. has enacted a law to protect unborn babies from abortion as soon as a heartbeat can be detected. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed the Human Rights Protection Act on Thursday after it passed the state House by a margin of 56-40 and the state Senate by a margin of […]


There was a major political upset in Wisconsin this week as a conservative surmounted tremendous odds and attacks on his Christian faith to win a seat on the state Supreme Court. With 100 percent of results counted, Wisconsin Court of Appeals Judge Brian Hagedorn has defeated left-backed candidate Lisa Neubauer by 6,000 votes out of […]


A bill to legalize assisted suicide in Maryland went down to the narrowest of defeats in the state Senate this week. As Lisa Hudson covered earlier this week, the “End of Life Option Act” had stalled out in committee in the Maryland legislature since it was first introduced in 2015. But an expanded Democrat majority […]


For the first time in a long time, Democrat candidates for president are being seriously challenged — by both sides — about their positions on abortion. Abortion has long been a sacred cow of the Left. There has not been a serious pro-life Democrat to run for president in decades, so support for abortion has […]


Will “Betomania” be going nationwide next year? The mediocre former Texas congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke today announced he is running for president in 2020. The announcement comes after he declared just a few months ago he would not run for president. O’Rourke became a leftist superstar in his high-profile challenge to Sen. Ted Cruz last year. […]


Democrats are now openly saying that if you disagree with same-sex marriage, you’re no longer a decent person. Some on the Left have been saying that for a few years now, forgetting that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both publicly opposed same-sex marriage as recently as seven years ago. But now, even prominent national Democrats […]


The 2020 Democratic presidential primary has been heating up in the last couple weeks, with multiple new candidates jumping in the race and several more poised to announce their decisions this month. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris are jockeying for position at the front of the pack. Sanders’ campaign reportedly raised […]


The new U.S. Department of Health & Human Services rule will cut around $50-60 million in annual taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.


The crisis engulfing Virginia’s Democratic leaders continues to rage two weeks after the first scandal. The controversies come at a critical time, as the entire state legislature — where Republicans have a tiny 51-49 majority in the House and another tiny 21-19 majority in the Senate — is up for re-election in November. Here’s an […]


Virginia state Delegate Kathy Tran, a Democrat, introduced a bill this week that she freely admitted would legalize abortion at any point of pregnancy, up until birth. During questions about her bill in a House subcommittee from Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert, Tran was asked about the bill’s allowance of third trimester abortions if an abortionist certifies that […]


Two recent movies designed to appeal to a left-wing audience and misrepresent conservatives have been flops at the box office. On the Basis of Sex, a biopic based on the early life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was eagerly anticipated by liberals. Ginsburg, one of the most far-left justices ever, has become something […]


More Democrats have announced bids for president in 2020, with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii joining the fray. In the first three parts of our 2020 preview series, we looked at the front runners, middle-tier, and bottom-of-the-barrel candidates. Today we’re looking at the […]
