Jason Altmire (D, PA-04): pro-life? Pro-choice? Try ‘pro-keeping his seat.’
You have to wonder whether the Online Left finds equivocators like Rep. Jason Altmire (D, PA-04) as insulting as we do (not that progressives have the courage to call their own hypocrites out, of course). Let me set the background: in 2010 Altmire did his level best to look like a mighty pro-life champion, largely because he was running for re-election in a R+6 district | Read More »
A long, drawn-out death rattle for Komen for the Cure?
You no doubt remember that controversy: Komen decided to stop funding Planned Parenthood, the Left erupted in rage, Komen backed down. Victory for the liberal feminist movement! …And how does victory look now? Well… Reuters: “Komen said it had had problems meeting targets in about half of the five fundraising events it has staged since the blowup. One in Lafayette, Louisiana, raised less than $400,000, | Read More »
Good News / Bad News for Debbie Wasserman Schultz!
The bad news: she didn’t realize that she was calling members of her own party ‘anti-woman’ before she started screaming to The Weekly Standard‘s John McCormack about how people who voted to defund Planned Parenthood are anti-woman! TWS: But there were eleven [correction: ten] Democrats who voted against funding for Planned Parenthood, so are those eleven Democrats anti-woman? WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, they’re not, because if | Read More »
Next Live Action sting video: Ohio?
If my pet theory is correct, then very possibly: Ohio legislators will be unveiling today the Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortions where a fetal heartbeat can be detected (H/T: Weasel Zippers). This would effectively put the cap on abortions in Ohio at being absolutely no later than six weeks, and quite possibly earlier: pro-choice agitators are already simultaneously claiming that the proposed law is | Read More »
Live Action’s latest: NY and the Reproductive Health Act.
Live Action has released its latest video (unedited, full footage here), and it’s a doozy [UPDATE: this video should work, now]: For those without video access, it’s the usual “Hi! I’m a pimp who has underaged illegal immigrant hookers! What can you guys do for me?” – and the answer, this time, is to walk the pimp through the process of vouching for said underaged | Read More »
Lila Rose fights the Man.
Choice of phrase deliberate: one of the most entertaining things about today’s state of activism is that the Professional Left is just now starting to realize that they have somehow become the agents of reaction without ever quite noticing how it happened. Lila Rose, on the other hand? Her pro-life organization Live Action is a classic guerrilla theater operation designed to target the weaknesses of | Read More »
Ben Nelson (D) bringing everyone together!
This takes skill – but apparently Reid’s amendment is up to the task. The National Organization of Women: We call on all senators who consider themselves friends of women’s rights to reject the Manager’s Amendment, and if it remains, to defeat this cruelly over-compromised legislation. Planned Parenthood apparently agrees. National Right to Life: NRLC will score the upcoming roll call votes on cloture on the Reid | Read More »
