A Year for Life: The Top 5 Pro-Life Victories of 2018

2018 was certainly a year of victory for the pro-life movement. As the year draws to a close and we look back on what took place, pro-lifers across the country have cause for celebration. Here are 2018’s top five pro-life victories: 1.) Pro-abortion senators lose their seats in the midterms. A markedly positive outcome from the roller coaster of the 2018 midterms was the number of pro-abortion U.S. senators that lost their races. Politicians such as Senators Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) will not be returning to Congress in January, which is good news for the unborn. 2.)

5 Pro-Life Candidates Who Won the 2018 Midterms

The outcome of the 2018 midterm races certainly did not lack for interesting results. Wins and losses for all parties, drastic surprises, and expected finishes — the results were a mixed bag across the board. In the midst of it all, however, several pro-life candidates emerged victorious, winning their respective races. Here are five of the most notable pro-life midterm winners: 1.) Senator-elect Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has been establishing her pro-life record for years, serving as the U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District. She will now continue to be a voice for the voiceless in the

Who Will Win the Midterms? Here’s 4 Possible Outcomes

With less than two weeks before Election Day, races all around the country are tightening. The fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh provided the boost Republicans needed to close the intensity gap. What once seemed like a certainty — a blue wave — is now up in the air. There are several possible outcomes and exponential ramifications. What’s going to happen in two weeks? Here’s my somewhat useful list of possible outcomes and complete guesses at their odds. Outcome 1: The Blue Wave The media has been beating the “blue wave” drum for months now. According to this narrative,

“Mobs vs. Jobs”: Why Trump’s New Slogan Perfectly Sums Up 2018

President Trump reminded us that he is surpassed by none when it comes branding when he recently unveiled his new slogan for the midterms, “Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs.” Is there a more succinct summary of the political divide since Trump’s election than this? Let’s recap: At least a handful of Trump administration officials have endured public harassment by left-wing activists since inauguration. Senators Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) were both accosted at restaurants while dining with their spouses. In the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh drama, deranged lunatic Ronald Derisi made threatening phone calls to two GOP

Taylor Swift Turns Political — And Loses Her Novelty

I remember the good old days — and by that, I mean less than 10 years ago — when Taylor Swift burst onto the scene. She was a breath of fresh air — a wholesome star with compelling, honest lyrics who took the country and pop scenes by storm at the same time. She avoided going down the rabbit holes of destruction that had taken other stars like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. It was very hard to dislike Taylor Swift. At some point, though, things changed for Swift. I don’t follow the tabloids, but something caused her lyrics to

Could Democrats’ Antics on Kavanaugh Save the GOP Congress?

The Kavanaugh confirmation fight may be over. But the larger battle is still raging. For months, polls have showed an “intensity gap” between Republicans and Democrats for the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats have been much more excited to vote in the elections, and enthusiasm is critical for turnout. But polls taken in the aftermath of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the ensuing media firestorm have shown the Democrats’ intensity gap has evaporated. Why? Prior to the fight, some Republicans didn’t feel motivated to get out and vote in 2018. For those who don’t follow politics

Red-State “Pro-Life” Democrats Vote to Continue Funding Planned Parenthood

Several Democrat senators running for re-election in red states voted to continue taxpayer funding for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood on Thursday. An amendment proposed by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to a massive bill to fund the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services would have stripped Planned Parenthood of nearly half a billion dollars in federal taxpayer money that they receive each year. The amendment was defeated by a vote of 48 against to 45 in favor. All Senate Democrats voted against the amendment. (Two Republicans, pro-abortion Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, also voted

Do Pro-Life Democrats Have a Future?

Late last month, the Missouri Democratic Party announced a new platform, containing an amendment that has since raised a great deal of controversy within the party. At their quarterly meeting, the Missouri Democratic Party approved updates to their ten-year-old platform and included an unexpectedly welcoming caveat for pro-life party members: We respect the conscience of each Missourian and recognize that members of our party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, such as abortion. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength, and welcome into our ranks all Missourians who may hold
