The evangelical world has been jolted over the last month by a handful of prominent Christian leaders who have renounced the faith and condemned what they previously stood for. Now a well-known rocker is calling for Christians to resist relativism and embrace “truth over feeling.” It started with Joshua Harris, a former megachurch pastor best […]


Planned Parenthood has decided to put its abortion business first by withdrawing from the Title X program over a new prohibition on federal abortion funding. As we’ve covered extensively at the National Pulse, the Trump administration has implemented a new rule prohibiting federal taxpayer dollars from the Title X program from being disbursed to any facility that […]


A tiny mob of leftists surrounded Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this week, but Cruz was unmoved. A 45-second clip circulating on Twitter shows some hecklers shouting various clichés and slogans as “We will not be silenced!” and “Free the children!” — an apparent reference to the crisis at the […]


Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has invited President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to a commemoration of the 400thanniversary of the first meeting of representative government in the United States. Northam’s fellow Democrats are now threatening to boycott the event. On July 30, 1619, the Virginia General Assembly convened for the first […]


Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy is making the state’s Supreme Court feel the pain of its own mandates. Earlier this year, the Alaska Supreme Court declared unconstitutional two state law prohibiting tax dollars from being used to pay for abortions, except those deemed medically necessary. The court called the laws “under-inclusive” in a 4-1 decision and […]


The Supreme Court handed down two 5-4 decisions on Thursday that had each wing of the court accusing the other of doing something unprecedented. Census Citizenship Question The first case, Department of Commerce v. New York, dealt with the challenges from liberals over the Trump administration’s plans to ask respondents to the 2020 census whether or […]


The pro-life administration in history achieved a major — and perhaps surprising — victory in the most leftist circuit court in the country on Thursday. In February, the Trump administration finalized a rule to cut off federal taxpayer funding under Title X from any facility that performs or promotes abortions. Any facility that does not […]


The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 on Thursday that the Peace Cross in Bladensburg, Md., being challenged by the atheist American Humanist Association, does not violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause and should be left alone. Background The Bladensburg World War I Memorial, as the Peace Cross is formally named, was built from 1919 to 1925 […]


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 […]
