NARAL says senators should “do their job” regarding the Supreme Court. I agree.

At NARAL Pro-Choice America, they believe in staying busy. When the group isn’t defending unsafe abortion mills or fighting laws to protect women from violence, NARAL has another pastime: giving job advice. They gave some to Senate Republicans last month.

Justice Antonin Scalia passed away this year, and President Obama is hoping to name a replacement. After considering Nevada’s pro-abortion governor, Brian Sandoval, the President settled on Judge Merrick Garland. Garland is chief of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and NARAL praised Obama for doing “his constitutional duty” in nominating Garland. Their remarks to Senate Republicans haven’t been as nice.

According to NARAL, Republicans are being “childish,” “irresponsible,” and “ludicrous” for refusing to hold hearings or schedule a vote on Garland’s confirmation. Simply put, GOP senators need to “do their job” because “our Constitution doesn’t change.”

Are you “abortion positive”? Child rapists are.

I hear a lot of claims from abortion proponents. Some are meticulously researched and challenging to answer. Some aren’t:

Nobody likes abortionPeople who say this are usually one of two things: uninformed or dishonest. If they’re dishonest, there isn’t much you can do. But if they’re just uninformed, then you can change that pretty easily. There’s a group that’s making it even easier.

A pro-lifer’s view on paid family leave

The primary reason women say they have abortions is socio-economic. A 2013 study showed that 40 percent of the time, finances contribute to a woman’s decision to abort her baby. A 2005 study showed that 74 percent said, “Having a baby would dramatically change my life,” and 73 percent said, “Can’t afford a baby now.” Both factor in jobs, with 21 percent saying, “Can’t leave job to take care of a baby.”

The United States is one of seven nations which allows for elective abortions past 20 weeks, and one of four which allows for elective abortions until birth. It is also only one of two, out of 185 nations with available data, which provides no federally guaranteed paid maternity leave for working mothers. (The other is Papua New Guinea, leaving the United States with the distinction of being the only developed nation.)

America’s love affair with animals shouldn’t overshadow plight of humans

At the National Arboretum are two recently hatched bald eagles, formerly known as DC2 and DC3. The eaglets have been named Freedom and Liberty, as announced in a press conference Tuesday. The names were chosen among 3,600 suggested pairs, according to the Washington Post.

The bald eagle is our national bird, and Americans were excited to participate in naming cute new eaglets. There’s nothing wrong with that. What is troubling, though, is that Freedom and Liberty had better protection while still in their eggs than preborn babies in the womb do.

Group promotes abortion as “a public good” on college campus tour

During the month of April, Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity (URGE), a group whose motto is “Let’s Be Bold,” embarked on their national #AbortionPositive bus tour on 10 college campuses in five states, including Alabama, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, and Texas.

With added emphasis, URGE notes about the bus tour:

Complete with giveaways and speakers, students all over the country will get the opportunity to take action and proclaim abortion access as a public good. We don’t believe abortion is a bad word, and we know that youth everywhere are ready and willing to proactively support every healthcare option available. By taking this tour on the road, we show our supporters that they aren’t alone. Our hope is that more students, young people, and community members will express their support for the freedom to make personal reproductive health decisions.

Those statements are wrong. Access to a procedure which kills a preborn child and often scars a woman physically and/or psychologically can never be “a public good.”

A celebration of life: Social media posts show lives saved from abortion

Nothing beats scrolling down your Facebook feed or searching a hashtag on Twitter and finding out that another mother has chosen life for her precious child. Nothing beats the email you wake up to that informs you a father has spoken out for his child, and that his girlfriend has rejected abortion. Life is something to celebrate, and every single life is a unique blessing.

Here are a few lives that remind each of us why we won’t – and can’t – be quiet about life. It’s an equal chance every human being deserves.

Planned Parenthood CEO grateful for biased, pro-abortion media

It’s no secret that the media has a pro-abortion bias, completely dropping all pretense of neutrality, especially when it comes to Planned Parenthood.

Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO, depends on this bias to keep people convinced that women need abortion, and that Planned Parenthood provides health care. It doesn’t matter whether or not these things are true; the media is all too happy to parrot whatever script Richards and Planned Parenthood are peddling at the moment. They don’t even try to hide it anymore; they’ve become completely brazen about it.

Would Harriet Tubman fund Planned Parenthood? I doubt it.

I’m usually critical of the Obama administration, but I did like one of its recent decisions.

Many have called for a woman to be put on the twenty dollar bill, and this month, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said it’s going to happen. Lew announced that President Andrew Jackson will be moved to the back of the bill. Who’ll replace him on the front? A gun owning, Christian, abolitionist Republican.

“Abortion rights” are in the Constitution? Show me where.

At the University of North Georgia, some students put on a celebration recently. What were they celebrating? Abortion, of course. With cookies.

As UNG Students for Life reported, members of the Skeptics Society encouraged visitors to take fetus shaped cookies and give reasons why abortion should stay legal. Examples ranged from, “A woman controls her own body,” to, “My vagina is too pretty to let a fetus crawl out.” And then there was this:

There is just one side that is shutting down abortion conversations

The Internet was recently made aware of what extreme and perverse ends pro-abortion students are willing to go to.

Earlier this month, the University of North Georgia’s Skeptics Society invited students to munch on cookies of preborn children while writing why abortion should remain legal. The answers included typical pro-abortion talking points, but also crude ones. Others included smiley faces in their answers and separated the head of the cookie from the rest.

Donald Trump’s amendment to the GOP platform on abortion would be a disaster

If it wasn’t already clear that Donald Trump doesn’t really understand how pro-lifers think, he’s doing a bang-up job of reinforcing the point every few weeks. As Live Action News’ Danny David covered earlier, Trump said the following on the Today Show:

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: The Republican platform, every four years, has a provision that states that the right of the unborn child shall not be infringed. And it makes no exceptions for rape, for incest, for the life of the mother. Would you want to change the Republican platform to include the exceptions that you have?

TRUMP: Yes, I would. Yes, I would. Absolutely. For the three exceptions, I would.

GUTHRIE: Would you have an exception for the health of the mother?

TRUMP: I would leave it to the life of the mother, but I would absolutely have the three exceptions.

College students eat baby cookies to celebrate abortion

Nobody is pro-abortion.”

You hear that line from abortion advocates a lot, and it makes sense. After all, abortion is always a serious, somber decision that is never taken lightly…

or it’s something to laugh about at a bake sale.

That image was on pro-life activist Matt Walsh’s Facebook page recently. He explained…

Abortion advocate hysteria after O’Reilly calls out “health exception” abortion loophole

Bill O’Reilly’s done it again. Pro-abortion bloggers are suffering conniptions over the Fox News host’s statements in the below segment the other night:

Cecile Richards insults women voters who disagree with her

As a pro-life woman, I take my right to vote very seriously. While political pundits may like to lump one very large and diverse group together, not all women vote the same way.

It’s offensive to hear people use the term “women’s issues” when what they really mean is free birth control and access to abortion. It’s even more offensive to me because I believe individuals should provide their own birth control. And, more importantly it’s offensive when I fight to remind women they have other options besides abortion.
