That time NARAL held a protest in an empty room

Apparently NARAL is sponsoring #StopTheBans events across the country today.

In particular, NARAL really doesn’t like the 20-week abortion ban. You know, the one that everyone else does, particularly women.

If indeed a picture tells a thousand words, the one below is classic. It shows NARAL Maryland supporters this morning griping to an empty room….

It has been two weeks since GOP House leaders torpedoed the 20-week abortion ban, and I’m madder than ever

Two weeks ago today Republican House leaders outdid themselves on the scale of betrayal by suddenly pulling a vote on the Pain Capable 20-week abortion ban the day before 500,000 pro-lifers to whom they’d promised that vote descended on Washington for the March for Life.

I was pretty angry that day, and, if anything, I’m angrier today. I’m not alone in wanting the political scalp of turncoat ringleader Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (pictured above with Speaker John Boehner) and whoever all her allies are found to be.

Some have been outed: Reps. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and Jackie Walorski of Indiana. At least one other is now trying to disclaim responsibility.

They’re running scared from the avalanche of pro-life anger.

Stanek wkend Q: Will the House pass the 20-wk abortion ban this year?

mbn_foetus_200_280_55By now everyone knows what went down Thursday: GOP House leadership panicked and pulled the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, after promising the pro-life world they would pass it on the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, the same day hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers were descending on Washington for the March for Life.

I’m told these same spineless, convictionless wimps are promising to introduce a retooled ban, but our people are now demanding a timeline, and they want the clock to start ticking SOON.

So what do you think? Will it happen? Also take the poll….

  • Big Blue Wave points out the reluctance of those on the pro-abortion side of the aisle to state whether or not the human fetus at 20 weeks is, in fact, a human being. First, Nancy Pelosi dodged the question, and then Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland (where late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart kills viable children for a living), claimed that whether or not a 20-week preborn child is human “is not a real issue.”

Stanek weekend Q #1: Predictions for abortion in 2015?

U.S.  News & World Report predicts “2014’s Republican wave will encourage lawmakers to consider more restrictions on abortion rights” in 2015, adding: The recent surge in abortion laws – more were enacted between 2011 and 2013 than in the previous decade - met both success and defeat in court challenges in 2014. That fight over women’s […]

GOP-controlled Senate “trouble for reproductive rights”?

by Carder A Republican-controlled Senate with McConnell as majority leader could spell serious trouble for reproductive rights. McConnell has been vocal in his support for a national 20-week abortion ban, which he is likely to try to bring to the floor for a vote. Democrats would probably filibuster such a bill, and President Obama would […]

  • Fletcher Armstrong has put in a request to City Hall in Asheville, North Carolina, asking them to afford his pro-life group the same right to display a banner on the building as was given to a rainbow flag celebrating the striking down of a statewide ban on gay marriage. While he is still awaiting an official response, he has received some local TV coverage for his request.
