Democratic Platform Calls For Taxpayer-Funded Abortions

Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

Unlike any previous major party platform, the final draft of the 2016 Democratic platform explicitly calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

Viguerie: Trump has zero chance of changing GOP pro-life platform

Ben Johnson, Life Site

Donald Trump said he would “absolutely” change the Republican Party's platform to allow abortion for the “three exceptions” of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. This afternoon, national pro-life and conservative leaders such as Richard Viguerie told LifeSiteNews: No, he won't.

In Wisconsin Trump Hits the Limit of His Stream of Consciousness Campaign

The arrest of Donald Trump’s campaign manager for grabbing a female reporter, and Trump’s ridiculous attempts to lie and tweet him out of the rap in the face of clear video evidence drove Trump’s numbers with women even lower. But Trump hit the limit of his stream of consciousness campaign with the truly bizarre statement that women who have an abortion should somehow be punished if abortion is illegal.

Behold the wood of the Cross…

Where is the pushback on Mrs. Clinton’s publicly announced plan that, if elected, she will lead her administration in a war on Christianity and Christian practices? The deafening silence from religious leaders is indicative of a problem we face throughout today’s body politic, and especially in the conservative movement, and that is a lack of moral courage in the face of pressure from those who seek to destroy our culture, the rule of law, and our liberty.

Part 2: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

What we see on the part of the Republican establishment is not an effort to deliver the nomination to Senator Ted Cruz, but an effort to create a chaotic situation in which no outsider has a majority, thereby delivering to the Washington Cartel’s powerbrokers and insiders the ability to choose the nominee at the Republican National Convention. If that happens, then conservatives will have to face the reality of working with Donald Trump or opposing him at the GOP Convention.

I Will Not Vote For Donald Trump. Ever.

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

I have become convinced that Donald Trump’s pro-life conversion is a conversion of convenience. Life is the foremost cause in how I vote. Therefore I will not be voting for Donald Trump at all. Ever.

This Election Is Now About Abortion And Life

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

What cannot happen is a fractured evangelical base stands around two or three candidates and throws stones at itself. If that happens, we will see another 20 years of liberal Supreme Court justices, and another 20 or 30 million unborn babies killed. This election is now about ending abortion and preserving life, just like 1860 was about ending slavery. The sooner Christians understand that, the better.

Is There Any Part Of The Reagan Coalition Capitol Hill GOP Leaders Haven't Betrayed?

More spending, but not on the core constitutional responsibility of the federal government to provide for the common defense. A deteriorating national security posture and a rapid degradation of America’s military capabilities, intrusive and extra-constitutional federal interference in education and other powers reserved by the Constitution to the states, and the complete abandonment of any pretense of governing according to cultural conservative principles are the legacy of the past decade of Republican “leadership” on Capitol Hill.

The Establishment Media Misses The Real Message In Cruz’s Iowa Victory

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.

Grand Jury’s Indictment of Planned Parenthood Foe Isn’t the End of the Story

Pro-life advocate Shari Rendall writes while the indictment of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt seem to portend a bad omen for pro-lifers, Planned Parenthood is far from off-the-hook.  Following the indictment announcement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton both issued statements that the state’s investigation into Planned Parenthood remains ongoing and the grand jury’s action will have no impact on the probe.

The March for Life: Fight for What’s Right, Irrespective of the Odds

Ken Blackwell, CNS News

The March for Life is a sad occasion, since it marks a low point in American constitutional history. But it also is a moment of hope and triumph since it shows that people across the country will continue to fight for what’s right, irrespective of the odds.

Trump’s New York Values: A Long History Of Supporting Far-Left Politicians, Policies And Causes

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When I look at who Donald Trump has walked with and where he’s walked what I see is not a maturing understanding of the value and validity of conservative thought and ideas about how to govern – what I see is a long record of paying to play with liberal politicians, of adopting liberal positions, and now opportunistically trying to mislead voters into believing he is a populist “conservative.”

Deep Dive: 81% would restrict abortion, including 66% of pro-choicers

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

White House Inadvertently Admits That a Child Is a Child 'Even Before Birth'

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

The paper says women are "mothers" while still only pregnant. And one of the paper's key points -- printed in bold in the executive summary -- is: The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's "positive impact on children begins even before birth and lasts well beyond their childhood years."

10 Days To Save America: Defund Planned Parenthood NOW!

As big as abortion is as a policy debate, the internal Republican debate over cutting funds for Planned Parenthood is even more consequential from a constitutional perspective. It goes to the very heart of our constitutional system of government and what the role of Congress is in it. Why is it so hard for the sophisticated insiders of the Republican establishment to understand this? Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders

Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood Will Help Even If It Fails

Marjorie Dannelfelser, National Review

That’s because it sets a precedent for using the reconciliation process to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal major portions of Obamacare, thereby breaking the stranglehold on legislation subject to the filibuster. It demonstrates the importance of electing a pro-life president next November, and keeps the issue before the voters and the candidates.

One Halloween Horror Story the Establishment Media Refused to Air

We know horror sells; AMC's zombie hour, "The Walking Dead," is TV's most-watched drama, but when it comes to the truth about the serial killing of America’s abortion culture, well the networks get a little squeamish it seems. We urge you to use the social media hashtag #AbortionHorrors to demand the media cover the horror story of abortionist Dr. Michael Roth, and the “14 containers of human tissue" found in his car.
