Chicago-area Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress, staved off a fierce primary challenge from a ferociously pro-abortion candidate last night. Rep. Lipinski defeated Marie Newman — an ultra-leftist who had the backing of Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Human Rights Campaign, and Bernie Sanders — by a margin of […]

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. Pro-life Americans may have seen the headlines and wondered two things: “What is this vote all about, and should I care?” The answer to, “Should I care?” is a […]

Last summer, rumors abounded that Associate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy would retire, but nothing came of it. Those rumors were given new life as Politico released the audio of a speech made by Senator Dean Heller (R-Nev.) in Las Vegas last week. Heller hopes that a Kennedy retirement would rally his base in a […]

The state of Iowa is currently on the brink of a massive pro-life victory as the Iowa House of Representatives takes up the recently passed Senate File 2281, also referred to as The Heartbeat Bill, for consideration.

Merle Hoffman, a prominent New York abortionist, compared pro-life sidewalk counselors to the Taliban while testifying in court earlier this month, referring to their beliefs as comparable to the terror group’s “misogyny and fundamentalism.” Hoffman, dubbed “The Millionaire Abortionist” by a 2011 Forbes article, is the CEO of Choices Women’s Medical Center in New York […]

The Trump giveth and the Trump taketh? During a private meeting with lawmakers last week, President Trump signaled that he would be open to a 25 cent per gallon increase to the federal gas tax.  If your car has a 16 gallon gas tank (as many do), this would cost you an extra four dollars every time […]

The American Civil Liberties Union is working on behalf of abortion clinics across the state of Ohio to strike down a new state law before it goes into effect. This law would prevent abortions that are solely based on the diagnosis of Down syndrome. Governor John Kasich signed the law in December, and it is […]

Politico is reporting this week that Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) is reconsidering his retirement and thinking about once again running for re-election. The reason? Moderate “Republicans” in Tennessee fret that the conservative likely to win the GOP nomination, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, could lose the general election. I’m admittedly not familiar with the political dynamics in Tennessee. But […]

Pro-life Democrats? They still exist? The answer is just barely, and if far-leftists have their way, they will be almost completely gone from the national party. Up until the Obama years, there was a fairly sizable contingent of pro-life Democrats in Congress. This bloc of a dozen or so lawmakers were the last major holdouts preventing […]

Gathering for its annual Winter Meeting last week in Washington, D.C., the Republican National Committee unanimously passed an important resolution (provided in full below) supporting President Trump’s policy regarding transgender personnel in the military.

Yesterday, 44 Democrats and 2 Republicans voted to continue allowing the barbaric practice of legalized abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when the baby is capable of feeling excruciating pain and, as science advances, capable of surviving outside the womb. The bill, called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, was not expected to pass because the […]

While every day is a great day to be pro-life, this day — that of the March for Life — stands among the greatest. At the 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., earlier this afternoon, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers who had gathered in our nation’s capitol to call for an end to […]

Thousands gathered in Chicago this past Sunday for the city’s ‘March for Life.’ The March for Life Chicago wasn’t simply a rally or a march but a series of events broken up over the weekend.

An amendment to the Tennessee state constitution that has been stuck in limbo for over three years was finally upheld by an appeals court ruling on Tuesday. Hailed as a victory by pro-lifers, this decision means that the 2014 ballot measure removing the right to abortion from the Tennessee constitution is no longer at risk […]

Good or bad, Virginia never fails to excite. As one of only two states to have elections every year, and a purple state, Virginia is often a battleground and proxy war for national politics. In 2005, a Democratic victory in the governor’s race foretold a Democratic takeover of Congress the following year, and the reverse […]

Planned Parenthood may be losing thousands of patients a year, but it is now gaining support from a new source — pro-abortion license plates in Nebraska.

On Monday, a federal judge ruled that the Trump administration could not block two teenage illegal immigrants from obtaining abortions. The ruling marked a victory for the American Civil Liberties Union, which had filed to keep the government from blocking abortion access for the two pregnant girls. Documents were filed last week by the ACLU in […]

This article was originally posted at Townhall. Conservative news sources were shaken up for a few days this summer when several outlets picked up Rolling Stone Magazine’s story on Tim Gill, “Meet the Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement.” The greatest concern was with Gill’s pledge to “punish the wicked” by passing laws in swing and Southern […]

Bobby Schindler, brother of the late Terri Schiavo who was starved to death by a hospital under court order in 2005, says there is a legal reality that should send shivers down all our spines.
