Abortion Extremists Target… Hurricane Harvey Victims?

Hurricane Harvey has been an absolute tragedy. Not only has there been a tremendous loss of life, but the mass destruction of property and opportunities for the people of Texas has the entire country in mourning. It is at times like this where you see people pull together as one nation, set aside differences, and pitch in for support. Typically, the support offered provides actual help and doesn’t destroy even more life, but major pro-abortion groups want to change that. That’s right — major pro-abortion groups are raising money off Hurricane Harvey for… more abortions. The Lilith Fund, an organization

New LGBT Strategy: Pay Pro-Business Groups to Undermine Conservatives

Over the last few years, a similar sequence of events has become routine whenever state lawmakers try to pass legislation protecting religious liberty or opposing the Left’s gender ideology. First, Democrats, leftist groups and the media immediately come together to vilify the lawmakers in question for daring to oppose the LGBT agenda. And then, invariably, large corporations and business groups release their own statements decrying how such “anti-LGBT” legislation will be bad for the business climate and lead to disastrous economic consequences. The National Pulse has written previously on the hypocrisy of the “Big Business Democrats,” who now partner with the

Beyond Bathrooms: Why Transgender Battles Could Soon Impact Every Family

As it becomes clearer every day, Americans are sharply divided on how best to handle questions of children and gender identity. For better or worse, however, American parents are currently allowed (and even encouraged) to raise their kids as the opposite gender, and reports suggest many are doing so. But should these parents have the right to force other parents in their community to raise their own kids to question their biological sex? Should they have the right to impose their own transgender ideology on other families? This is the question at stake in a lawsuit filed last week by

Texas Legislators Take Pro-Life Stand, Pass More Protections for Unborn

While most Americans were asleep last night, legislators in the Texas Senate were working diligently to add more pro-life legislation to their books, displaying their strong commitment to curbing abortions in the Lone Star State. Senate Bill 4 passed the Texas Senate by a 21-10 vote shortly before 2 a.m. earlier today. Sponsored by state Senator Charles Schwertner, the legislation prohibits local and state government agencies from contracting with abortion providers and their affiliates. It also expands the current state and federal bans on using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions by prohibiting any financial contracts with clinics affiliated with

Did Texas Just Invent a Better Way to Defund Planned Parenthood?

With the odds of Congress repealing Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood before August recess getting slimmer by the day, lawmakers in Texas are thinking outside the box. If approved, their unconventional method of defunding Planned Parenthood could be implemented in states across the country. Last month, Texas Governor Greg Abbott submitted a waiver requesting that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approve federal funding for his state’s family planning program which excludes abortions. Initially a joint state-federal program, Texas’s family planning program began in 2007 as the “Women’s Health Program,” but has since been re-named “Healthy Texas Women.”

BREAKING: Texas Gov. Abbott Signs Pro-Life Bill, With More Coming

Yesterday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill placing significant restrictions on abortion providers in his state, and simultaneously called for a special session which will provide an opportunity for further pro-life gains. We reported on the bill last week, shortly after it passed the Texas legislature: On Friday, Texas senators passed several new abortion limits, including a ban on dilation and evacuation — or “dismemberment abortions”, the most common abortion procedure used for second-trimester babies. The bill, Senate Bill 8, which has previously passed the House by a vote of 96-47, also requires that fetal remains be either buried

Texas Gov. Abbott Poised to Sign Strong Pro-Life Legislation

Less than a year after the Supreme Court struck down a pro-life law in Texas, the indomitable state legislature has once again acted to protect the unborn, sending new abortion regulations to Governor Greg Abbott’s desk. On Friday, Texas senators passed several new abortion limits, including a ban on dilation and evacuation — or “dismemberment abortions”, the most common abortion procedure used for second-trimester babies. The bill, Senate Bill 8, which has previously passed the House by a vote of 96-47, also requires that fetal remains be either buried or cremated. These bills represent the most stringent abortion regulations the

These 4 States Are Taking a Stand for the First Amendment

Several states across the country have taken steps in recent weeks to provide greater protection for the religious freedom of their citizens. Both South Dakota and Kentucky have successfully passed state bills to defend the rights of religious groups and individuals, while similar legislation is also moving forward in Texas and Georgia. Earlier this month, South Dakota’s legislature passed a law that protects adoption agencies from being shut down because they believe children ought to be placed in households with a mother and a father. North Dakota, Michigan, and Virginia have all enacted similar religious exceptions; however, South Dakota is
