Even In Politics Not Everything Is Political
I have seen a number of Republicans and even some Christian evangelicals in the past seventy-two hours make the case that the Republican Party should avoid a government shutdown to stop Planned Parenthood. In fact, a few have said the fight against Planned Parenthood is just another ideological fight and government does so much more and depriving Planned Parenthood of any money will not stop | Read More »
How to Stop Planned Parenthood
The U.S. Senate will vote today on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and to stop forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and the barbaric sale of baby organs. Unfortunately, this bill won’t be signed into law. Even if enough Democrats support it to overcome a filibuster, President Obama will veto it. That is why the new Republican Congress must refuse to fund Planned Parenthood this | Read More »

The Cringing, Servile Search for Head Pats from Liberals
There is a piece that is making the rounds on the liberal side of the Internet today that concerns the Planned Parenthood videos. I am not going to link the piece here because I view it as either a transparent attempt to curry head pats from liberals and/or the media, or a dangerously naive missive that is tremendously damaging to the pro-life cause. Either way, | Read More »
Would you believe it? The judge who blocked the @PPact videos is an Obama guy!
I know. I was shocked, too. Via Mollie Hemmingway at The Federalist (if you don’t have a fainting couch, you may need to invest in one before reading this): A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has | Read More »

From the Mailbag: Dear John
From the Mailbag: Dear Mr. Erickson: How irresponsible and stupid for you and other right-wing media types and tea party Congress members to be calling for another government shutdown over Parent Parenthood — you drama queen will try to shut down the government over anything — the last government shutdown orchestrated by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% cost taxpayers $24 billion — once again, it would be | Read More »
Pro-Lifers, Be Wary of Mitch McConnell on Planned Parenthood
I saw Al Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary tweet out this link earlier today. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% is calling on Planned Parenthood being defunded. I hope McConnell will stick with this, even at the risk of President Obama shutting down the government in the fight. But we should remember that we are at this point because of legislation | Read More »

The Stammering Non-Defense of Planned Parenthood
Because they are the favored ideology of the American legacy media, liberals are not often called upon to mount a strenuous intellectual defense of their institutions and beliefs. As a result, they are spectacularly bad at doing so, on the rare occasion that one of their institutions actually faces a grave threat. Never has that been more apparent than during the current Planned Parenthood scandal. | Read More »
Defund Planned Parenthood: These 7 Senators Need Pressure NOW

In the latest reportable year, Planned Parenthood received $528 million – over half a billion dollars – in taxpayer funding. During that same period, they performed 327,653 abortions, and have performed | Read More »
Handling Hillary’s Email Fiasco: ‘Containment First, Then A Damage Assessment’
“Containment first, then a damage assessment is how this must be handled.” That’s what a U.S. official directly familiar with the notification of top lawmakers on the House and Senate intelligence committee about the extent of classified information on Hillary Clinton’s private email server told the Washington Times. The official, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the notification of possibly hundreds of | Read More »

StemExpress Gets “Fully Intact” Babies
StemExpress got a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress. The order prevents CMP from releasing more video footage. What are they hiding? David Daleidan, the man who spearheaded the undercover operation, went on CNN to tell the world. StemExpress gets fully intact babies from abortion clinics. “In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses | Read More »
Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try.
Republicans in the Congress are beginning to use the word “try.” They will try to defund Planned Parenthood. But the President has a veto and they do not have the votes to override the veto. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 44% has moved from try to “can’t.” He says Republicans cannot defund Planned Parenthood because of the President’s veto. This is really, really | Read More »
