In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a pro-life law passed by the Texas state legislature would be struck down because the benefits of the law were not worth impeding access to abortion.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a court ruling that allowed a teenager who was in the country illegally to receive an abortion while being held in American custody.

Iowa’s recently enacted Heartbeat Bill is one of the most forceful pro-life pieces of legislation in the United States, prohibiting almost all abortions once a heartbeat can be detected.

Conservatives and pro-life leaders are urging President Trump to do something bold: unilaterally cut off some of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. Even though Republicans in Congress have repeatedly failed to deliver on their promises to fully defund Planned Parenthood, pro-lifers are confident that Trump can take this step — because it’s been done before. Planned […]


Conservatives are well aware of the corrupt nature of politicians and their pay-to-play schemes. Many politicians will support legislation or policy changes for the right price. Often times special interest groups donate money or hold massive fundraisers for politicians with a wink-and-a-nod agreement that, in exchange for their campaign donations, their prized legislation will advance. […]

The abortion referendum in Ireland has been making headlines for weeks, and will continue to do so until it comes up for a vote in May.

Last summer, rumors abounded that Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy would retire, but nothing came of it.

The Trump giveth and the Trump taketh?
