Gruber published a paper during the Clinton administration observing that legalizing abortion saved the government $14 billion in assistance to economically disadvantaged mothers, including African-Americans, and lowered crime. Gruber argued in his paper that without the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, “marginal children” would have been born to many poor mothers. He said statistics show […]

Ok, the dresses aren’t quite the same, but I had to google to compare, because they sure looked close at first glance.
Here was Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards today at a fundraising event for pro-abortion New Hampshire U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen….
Here’s a view without the jacket. It looks like a black uterus right there where a uterus would be…
Four of Illinois’ last seven governors ended up in prison for corruption convictions ranging from bribery to racketeering.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the state ironically known as the Land of Lincoln.
I doubt people truly grasped the meaning of the “Chicago Way“ when they joked back in 2008 that Chicago politician Barack Obama took it with him to the White House.
by Kelli … [B]lack political gains are not the panacea that the black left has claimed they would be. When you look at income, unemployment, poverty, incarceration rates and other metrics, wide black-white disparities persist notwithstanding the ever-growing number of black elected officials. The reality is that a black man in the home is much […]
On May 22 I wrote about then-eight months pregnant Dr. Meriam Ibrahim, who is facing death by hanging in a Sudanese prison because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith for Islam.
Ibrahim has been further sentenced to receive 100 lashes for marrying a Christian man, Daniel Wani (wedding photo right). Wani is a naturalized American citizen.
The couple’s 20-month-old son Martin is imprisoned with his mother.
On May 27, Ibrahim gave birth early to daughter Maya while still shackled, reportedly. I can’t imagine. Here are the first photos released…
… [W]hen it comes to commenting on domestic scandals, President Obama will never live down his cowardly refusal to speak out against Kermit Gosnell.
Here was a man who, for thirty years, murdered black infants in his Philadelphia abortion clinic, while his activities were allowed to continue because of the complacency and tacit approval of local, state, and federal agencies.
While president, Obama has not yet stood apart from his party or advisors. To find an example of daring leadership on the part of Obama, you have to go back to his days in the Illinois State Senate….
Illinois Senate Bill 1095 was named the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA)….
Psalm 139:13-16 is the go-to Bible passage 90% of the time for pastors planning sermons on the pro-life issue. In it, David eloquently describes human life as a continuum that begins at conception, with God as our Creator:
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
by Carder Topics like O-Care’s contraception mandate and infanticide will, I take it, be discreetly avoided…. Meanwhile, who’s listening to Obama’s sermons on sharing the wealth and remaining unmoved by them unless/until they know the Pope would like to see a bit more wealth-sharing too? My hunch is that people’s views of redistribution are similar to their views of […]
What we are witnessing today is a historic inter-generational transfer of wealth. Past generations could expect a better life, but today’s youth are picking up the tab for the baby boomers. What’s more, it is the policies of the man they held up as a hero that are inflaming the problem.
Something pretty scary is happening in Albuquerque right now. Voters will cast ballots on November 19th on an initiative that would ban abortions after 20 weeks with virtually zero exceptions. This is a serious attack on women – and it’s a deliberate attempt by extreme interest groups to test their latest anti-women strategy…. The groups […]
Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book Double Down: Game Change 2012 notes President Obama commenting on drone strikes, reportedly telling his aides that he’s “really good at killing people.”… The Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that a total of 2,528-3,648 people have been killed by CIA drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004, and between 416-948 […]
Above was the headline on Drudge until a few moments ago. Below was the message one got when trying to access amberalert.gov until a couple hours ago: The latest, from The Guardian: The Amber Alert child abduction notification system remained fully functional during the government shutdown, the Department of Justice insisted on Monday, despite its website being taken […]
I have been hugely impressed with the pope’s pronouncements…. [He is] somebody who lives out the teachings of Christ. Incredible humility – incredible sense of empathy to the least of these, to the poor…. He’s also somebody who is – I think first and foremost – thinking about how to embrace people as opposed to […]
I remember Alan Keyes — I ran against Alan Keyes — but I remember him using this in his campaign against me, saying, ‘Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergartners’. And you know, I didn’t know what to tell him. But it is the right thing to do, to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based […]
Standing in the way of access to emergency contraception? Seriously, Mr. President? What’s up with that? You gotta be kidding me. That needs a hashtag. Mr. President, we have drawn the line against these relentless assaults against reproductive rights. We need Congress to act now to stop the attacks and protect our rights and our […]
Everything you need to assess Obama’s character was displayed at the #PlannedParenthood speech. No mention of #Gosnell. Horrendous. #prolife ~ Actor Ken Wahl, commenting on President Obama’s “God bless you” speech at a Planned Parenthood event in DC, via Twitter, April 28
Planned Parenthood cannot afford to condemn any abortion, after birth, partial birth, they can’t condemn any. They can’t take action in one way, one syllable, one word, they can’t oppose any type of abortion or they destroy their own purpose.
To Planned Parenthood, every abortion is good, every pregnancy is a potential disease, every pregnancy is the result of male domination. Every abortion equals female freedom and emancipation. Every abortion equals women saying, “Screw you.”
UPDATE 4/26, 11:00p: So much for not wanting to be filmed. Obama’s speech to Planned Parenthood will be live streamed this morning, to begin at 11:20a, here.
We also now know the Planned Parenthood event is being held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to The Christian Post.

4/24, 4:21p In a perfect pro-abortion world, the White House would proudly boast of President Obama’s plans to keynote a Planned Parenthood Federation of America event.
In a Today Show interview taped earlier in the week but airing today, President Obama was (thankfully) asked about Kermit Gosnell. Watch video beginning at 3:00…
Figures on the left have long advocated for removing parental authority for children and replacing it with a shared societal responsibility. Want to opt your children out of sex education? Home school? Have a say in whether your child receives contraceptives? The left has long resisted parental authority to make such decisions. Instead, they advocate […]
Opposed companion bill to Born Alive as state senator that sought to protect abortion survivors from the Gosnells of the world
Although President Obama had no trouble commenting on the ongoing Trayvon Martin case, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said today Obama wouldn’t be commenting on the Kermit Gosnell mass murder case because he “cannot take a position on an ongoing trial” or “comment further on an ongoing legal proceeding”…
The Dubliner, in Washington, DC, is the beloved Irish pub where pro-lifers congregate to inspire, conspire, and console before and after the March for Life each January as well as other meeting times throughout the year.
It is fitting, since Ireland is abortion free.
Last year President Obama violated our sacred space on St. Patrick’s Day.
UDPATE: 1/22, 8:40a: Created Equal has posted several photos on Facebook of its outreach protest at President Obama’s inauguration yesterday. His motorcade had to pass the group twice. We pray the photos of the reality of abortion got through and pierced his soul – somehow, some way. Here are two of the best photos. Click to enlarge…
UDPATE: 1/21, 12:35p: Created Equal’s protest is positioned on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the Navy Memorial. The presidential motorcade passed the group on its way to the Inauguration at the Capitol Building and will pass it again when returning to the White House.
1/21, 12:10p: I was just sent this picture from Mark Harrington of Created Equal.
Thanks to Mark’s team for standing in the gap for babies slaughtered by abortion, and for disallowing President Obama and his followers to forget what they support, even on Inauguration Day.

I want everyone who participates in the March For Life to take photos of the pro-unborn banners carried by the contingents from the National Catholic Reporter… from the LCWR [Leadership Conference of Women Religious]… from the Catholic Health Association… from the Nuns on the Bus.
~ Father John Zuhlsdorf, encouraging participants of the upcoming March for Life to capture on film any banners displayed by groups who have staunchly supported President Obama’s agenda and would dare to claim to be pro-life, January 11
[Related: Fr. Z scrutinizes Sr. Carol Keehan, president and CEO of the Catholic Health Association (pictured holding the pen that President Obama used to sign Obamacare into law)]
Creative Minority Report suggests banner slogans for Sr. Keehan:
It gets redundant pointing out President Obama’s hypocrisy when it comes to his concern for children.
Yesterday, in the wake of the Newtown massacre, Obama used four children as props to sign 23 executive orders to theoretically curb gun violence….
In signing his EOs Obama stated:
This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe. This is how we will be judged…. [W]hen it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now . . . .
Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association is being criticized for a new ad pointing out the hypocrisy of Obama and Washington elitists when it comes to protecting their own children as opposed to ours…
1/14, 3:08: (See poll at bottom of post.)
Last week President Obama’s Department of Justice lost yet another Freedom of Access to Clinics case when it settled with pro-lifer David Hamilton.
More on Attorney General Eric Holder’s harassment of Hamilton below.
But for those keeping count, here is the losing list of FACE cases brought forth by the Obama DOJ so far (including one not even listed on the DOJ site, US v. Parente):
The most pro-abortion/pro-infanticide president in America’s history will be inaugurated for the second time on January 21, 2013. (In fact, in an ironic twist, the March for Life had to be delayed until January 25 because so many hotel rooms were blocked out for this event.)
… just a few years before they get there.

BTW, I would add “BEFORE, DURING, & AFTER THEIR BIRTH” to the sign, although there wouldn’t have been enough room, I suppose.
Nevertheless, Abolish Human Abortion’s point on the hypocrisy of our nation and our president is irrefutable.
As Rev. Clenard Childress wrote at RenewAmerica on January 2:
We taped the next episode of Life Talk yesterday, and one of the guests was former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson. Jackson is now an outspoken conservative. Jackson described how liberals have been attacking her the past several days for this Facebook post (click to enlarge): Of course, Jackson made perfect sense. The Sandy […]
I have been praying that the tragic Newtown, Connecticut, massacre will soften President Obama’s heart on the sanctity of preborn children, who are just as valuable as postborn children.
As I wrote in my weekend question, there are many reasons for the obvious breakdown of our culture, but one of them has to be abortion. When our society as a whole is groomed to condone the murder of preborn children, it is no stretch to say the value of postborn children decreases as well. It is only common sense.
If President Obama gave his speech at the Newton memorial service yesterday without one thought of abortion, he is morally depraved beyond comprehension. Excerpts:
Yes, Obama is the master of the “basic instincts” of his self-centered, narcissistic base. It’s not complicated once you understand the con. To blacks he was one of their own and that was really all that mattered. They were in the bag from the start, 95% plus. To Hispanics, he bought their vote with his […]
Marvin Olasky at World magazine just posted a piece, “Slow train coming,” that meshes in theory with mine, although I think mention should have been made at the “50 year” mark of the sexual revolution and launch of the birth control pill.
A couple of Olasky’s milestones surprised, such as at 20 years and 10 years and a little bit at 30 years.
Then, of course, I realized we do have Isaiah. And we have history. We have the cycle of the Israelites to teach us, and the cycles of great human civilizations.
Ancient cultures like Egypt, Rome, and Greece all eventually collapsed because the people gave themselves over to idolatry and sexual debauchery.
Among followers of the God of the Bible there may be a similar cycle, but there is always a remnant that holds fast to Him, whom He protects and restores.
News reports are noting only one item of interest from President Obama’s campaign stop in Cincinnati yesterday, one of the “precious few” stops he has left before tomorrow, Election Day.
And that is a pro-life heckler who “totally hijacked” the rally, followed by another one. As a result, “Barack Obama was totally thrown off his game.”
Curt Levey of the Committee for Justice published a truly frightening post at Breitbart.com on November 3, “Obama Supreme Court is the stuff of nightmares.” Levey is an attorney and an expert on the U.S. Supreme Court.
While attention has been given to the consequences of an Obama re-election to the Supreme Court, Levey lays out the actual future, and it would be devastating. The America we are trying to hold on to would be gone.
Levey spells it out:
I mean, we’re worried about losing our jobs and borrowing money from China, and Obama responds with a sexually oriented ad, aimed at women, joking about how “doing it” with him is “amazing.”

While Michelle and Catherine were digging through online records of Georgia abortion clinics, they stumbled on the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife Sharon Malone Holder (both pictured right) co-owns with her sister an Atlanta area abortion clinic building.
The building is located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Georgia.
The business itself is called Old National GYN. Click on deed above and see below…
What happened, via The Atlantic:
On Twitter Tuesday night, political operatives and journalists [in D.C. and surrounding area] reported receiving spam texts attacking President Obama. The texts come not from phone numbers but from email addresses, most with mysterious domains: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. According to Whois.com… those domains were all registered in February, but the registrant’s name is blocked.
Was it legal? Yes, although perhaps not free to the recipient, according to Huffington Post:
UPDATE: 10/26, 7:15a: From Erick Erickson: The reason Barack Obama is running this ad is because he is done trying to get independent voters. He’s given up. Despite campaign rhetoric about fighting for evangelicals, he’s given up there. He’s given up on Catholic voters. He’s given up on the South. He’s given up on men […]
Drudge has this photo and caption up right now…
Now I know this is all tongue-in-cheek, not an actual example of President Obama looking up to God for a miracle win while holding a baby.
She will not want my sympathies, but I do feel sorry for Sandra Fluke. I’d like to ask her this time next year if she realizes yet she was exploited for political purposes by Barack Obama and feminists.
Drudge has highlighted this story since Saturday.
I’ll just say the number has to be much larger because I surely am not the only one who did not confirm on the Facebook page I was making a call.
From EWTN, October 20:
On October 19 the Obama campaign announced via video by Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards that she was taking a leave of absence from her “day job” to campaign full-time for Barack Obama in the waning days leading up to the presidential election….
Planned Parenthood, through its political action affiliates, has spent more on this election than any in the past – more than $12 million, with about half the money going for TV ads in Florida, Virginia, Ohio and other battleground states. ~ Wall Street Journal, October 19. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards also just announced she […]
During Tuesday’s debate, President Barack Obama advanced a falsehood:
People may wonder whether Obama actually likes Israel, but they will never, ever wonder whether he likes Planned Parenthood.
In fact, truth be told, Obama would obviously rather wear an “I ♥ Planned Parenthood” pin instead of American flag pin if he could get away with it.
Last night during his debate against Mitt Romney, Obama invoked his sacred cow, Planned Parenthood, five times:
The American Crossroads super-PAC, cofounded by Karl Rove, announced today it will spend $11.1 million on an anti-Obama ad campaign that reaches out to women in battleground states…. The ad, with the great title, “Sack it,” will run in “Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia… [and] will also air on […]
The headline on Drudge this morning…
All the polls I’ve read since Democrats started the “war on women” meme back in February have shown it’s a loser.
The new USA Today/Gallup poll linked today on Drudge agrees:
We pro-lifers often say a politician who doesn’t seek to protect human life at its earliest stages cannot be trusted to care about and protect life at later stages.
Last night CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Pat Smith, mother of slain State Dept. official Sean Smith, who was killed in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 along with Ambassador Chris Stevens and two others during a terrorist attack.
