Christie’s Stand for Life

This morning, Gov. Chris Christie joined the crowded Republican primary race. Although he did not advocate for increased protections for the unborn during his announcement speech, Gov. Christie has a solid pro-life record. During his time as Governor of the Garden State, Christie has vetoed taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood several times. Most recently, on the eve of his announcement, Gov. Christie vetoed a “Planned Parenthood stimulus package,” citing his “ethical and moral concerns.” “I have repeatedly stated that every life is precious, and every human deserving of protection.  I take seriously the need to guard against any societal deprecation

Who Speaks for Women? Lindsey Graham vs. Wendy Davis

Wendy Davis became a “progressive” television icon when she filibustered a Texas bill banning late-term abortions.  Sure she’s a feisty former single mom and made her way from welfare to Harvard, and she deserves props for that. But in making the right to kill a child in the 6th month of pregnancy her signature issue in 2014, she put herself out of touch with the mainstream of American women, Latino voters, independents, and young people.  After all, despite exciting the media and donors, she lost her race for governor the following November by a crashing 20 points and lost even

Walker Backs Up Pro-Life Statements With Action

The Pulse has taken Governor Scott Walker to task in the past for coming across a little — um, squishy? — when talking about social issues including life and marriage. But actions really do speak louder than words. All of the 2016 Republican candidates have endorsed a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the time at which unborn babies can feel pain. Scott Walker will soon be making good on that promise by signing a ban that is fast-tracking its way through the Wisconsin legislature. When asked about his decision to sign the bill with or without exceptions for

Hillary Clinton Confirms Her Abortion Extremism

Last month, when questioned about his own pro-life position,  presidential contender Senator Rand Paul challenged reporters to ask Democratic Party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz whether she believed it should be legal to abort “a seven pound baby” in the womb.  (She said yes).  He later stated that all Democrats should be challenged to justify their extremism on this issue, given that the vast majority of the American people oppose late-term abortions and support laws to restrict them. “Hillary Clinton should have to answer this question,” Paul later wrote. Well, she did.  On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,

Scott Walker Endorses Wisconsin 20-week Ban

In the latest welcome news from the Madison, Wisconsin Capitol Times, Scott Walker has now affirmed support for both a federal and state 20 week abortion ban: Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin announced on Thursday plans to introduce a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Gov. Scott Walker said in March he will sign the bill when it lands on his desk. …”I believe we have a duty and a moral obligation to protect these children from the horrific procedures used to snuff out their lives. The barbaric and painful mutilation of little children is something that no humane

Chris Christie Endorses 20-Week Abortion Ban

As Marjorie reported yesterday, Chris Christie is the latest GOP presidential contender to endorse the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks (or almost the fifth month) of pregnancy. Gov. Christie released this statement: I am proud to be a pro-life Republican. I believe that every life is an individual gift from God, and that no life is disposable. When I was preparing to run for Governor of New Jersey there were those who told me there was no way I would be elected as a pro-life candidate.  I told them that they were wrong, that

EMILY’s List Wages Tired ‘War on Woman’ Club Against Cruz

EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock recently called Senator Ted Cruz “the tip of the iceberg” for women, citing the GOP’s so-called “radical,” “anti-choice, anti-woman” agenda. Schriock needs to look in the mirror. While she avoids the word “abortion” in even as safe an environment as a New York Times interview, the party and the candidate she backs are far more extreme on the issue of abortion than any of the likely Republican presidential candidates. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson have joined the now long list of Republican 2016 hopefuls to publicly support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child

Fiorina Supports Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina wrote a piece for the Susan B. Anthony List blog on March 16th. In it, she affirms her support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act: About sixty years ago, a decision was made that changed my life. My husband’s mother chose life. She was told that her pregnancy would be difficult and Doctors told her she needed to have an abortion. Being a woman of intense faith and courage, my husband’s mother continued her pregnancy. I cannot imagine how different my life would be had she made a different choice. Unfortunately, women are faced with
