Democrats Obstruct Zika Funding Bill, Blame GOP for Obstructionism

For nearly three months now, Congress has been unable to pass a bill funding the fight against the Zika epidemic. This is not because no such bill exists; the House passed one in June which would provide $1.1 billion in funding to combat the virus’ spread. Senate Democrats have blocked the bill, however, for the simple reason that none of the funds would go to Profamilias, the Puerto Rican wing of Planned Parenthood. That’s all.

Sorry, Trevor Noah, Killing Babies Doesn’t Cure Zika

If you waste your time watching The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, you may have heard this “brilliant” analogy from him last night during a tirade over the fight to combat the Zika virus: “I don’t understand how any man thinks that he has the right to dictate to a woman what they should do with their bodies. Imagine if black people were the only ones to decide if white people were allowed to wear sunscreen.

Pro-abortion leftists argue that pregnant women infected by the virus ought to abort their

Democrats Are Putting Lives At Risk By Playing “Zika” Politics

Concerns about the Zika virus are growing throughout the country. Pregnant women are taking unusual precautions, travel warnings are being issued for Florida, and public panic is on the rise in any state with mosquitoes. Prominent Florida Democrats, such as Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Alan Grayson, are giving speeches and hosting town halls dedicated to reassuring voters that they are working on solutions. Even national Democratic figures, like New York Senator Chuck Schumer and Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine, are calling for an emergency session of Congress to allocate funds for the fight against Zika. But can we be honest
