SBA List Video Highlights Obama’s Laser Like Focus on Government Funding of Abortion
It has been said many times that President Obama is the most pro-abortion President in our history. I wonder where people possibly get that idea? Could it be because he thinks it is more of a “punishment” to have a baby than to live with the life-long guilt and pain of aborting a child? Or could it be because he talks about babies as ‘it’ | Read More »
Is It Pro-Choice, If It’s An Offer You Can’t Refuse?
“I asked the doctor if it was a boy or girl,” Wei said. “The doctor said it was a boy. My friends who were beside me said the baby’s body was completely black. I felt desolate, so I didn’t look up to see the baby. The nurses dealt with the body like it was rubbish,” Wei said. “They wrapped it up in a black plastic | Read More »
The Boehner Plan: Phony Cuts, Slimy Procedures, Dangerous Ignorance
The main problems with the Boehner proposal are: Most of the initial $1.2 trillion of discretionary cuts are (1) from defense, or (2) are phony, out-year, and easily avoided. The compensatory immediate $1 trillion increase in the debt limit is, on the other hand, very real. Even worse, however, the notion of giving a Reid/Pelosi/McConnell/Boehner-appointed commission the power to devise non-filibusterable, unamendable tax increases (or, | Read More »
Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land on this Independence Day
As Benjamin Franklin left Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention, he was reportedly asked by a lady, “well doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” He famously replied, “a republic, if you can keep it.” Today, more than ever before, is a time to celebrate the roots of our founding – and resolve to preserve this republic as a paragon of liberty | Read More »
Key votes on Abortion, DADT, START, and Gitmo This Week.
Today, the House will consider two bills with some amendments that are important to conservatives. Abortion After a period of morning speeches, the House will finish work on H.R. 1216- the fourth bill brought to the floor that defunds mandatory appropriations for an Obamacare program.

Modern technology brings diagnoses earlier–even in the womb. In the U.S., that means that 90% of children with Down’s Syndrom are aborted thanks to amniocentesis. In this UK example, a child diagnosed via ultrasound with Spina Bifida was aborted [WARNING: this is very disturbing]. His mother’s experience is what follows: Yet if making that choice was hard, the physical ordeal was only just beginning. At | Read More »
In Ocala, Florida Modern America Reaps What It Has Sown.
Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. – Galatians VI King James Version (HT: The Phrase Finder) The town of Ocala, Florida played host to an absolutely brutal crime. A 15-year-old boy, who apparently had the survival will of Rasputin, was beaten, shot seven times, burned, killed and cremated. Afterwards, the ashes were hidden in several paint cans. How horrible! Who could do | Read More »
Counting Our Hot Buttons: Abortion Numbers in Perspective
With the recent debate over federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood bringing the abortion debate back to the surface, it is sometimes useful to look at the numbers to get a little perspective on why this issue is such a large one. (All of these are estimates, and sources vary, but there’s no serious debate as to the scale of the numbers). Number killed or | Read More »
Planned Parenthood Clinics Help Statutory Rapists Cover Their Tracks
Planned Parenthood claims to support women’s health. Their institutional actions, though, indicate they support criminal activity that would harm a child. How? By facilitating abortions for children raped by adult men. Fully 91% of the abortion clinics contacted would help an underaged girl receive an abortion even when the clinic counselor knew the father was an adult male. Consider only one of 813 examples of | Read More »
Ezra Klein Supports Killing Black Babies
What’s wrong with you, bitter clingers? Don’t you realize that a dead child is a cheap child? I mean, all dead babies cost is the funds to suck or cut them mercilessly from their mother’s womb. Presto! No more pesky expenses of a living child. Ezra Klein, writing at the Washington Post, actually proffers that argument in favor of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood; that abortions | Read More »
More Pennsylvania Abortion Shops Shuttered
When the story of the abortion shop cum abattoir run by Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell hit the press in January the nation was shocked by the near medieval conditions encountered by women seeking access to the “safe, legal, and rare” procedure which kills over a million children each year. As we noted at the time, the conditions in Gosnell’s facility was not an aberration, rather | Read More »
So, Which Murderers are your Taxes Funding?
As the budget battle rages on and as we continue to fund domestic baby-killers, do we have to fund foreign ones as well?! For years, the left wing foreign policy establishment has rapturously promoted the ‘Palestinians’ as the cause célèbre of our national security interests. Despite their unyielding commitment to terror, these supercilious ‘wizards of smart’ have credulously identified the creation of a ‘Palestinian’ state | Read More »
Defund Planned Parenthood. Now.
From the diaries by Neil. A strong, simple message that can’t really be said enough. At a press conference today, President Obama said, “You know, if Republicans are interested in social issues that they want to promote, they should put a bill on the floor of the House and promote it, have an up-or-down vote, send it over to the Senate. But don’t try to | Read More »
Abortion clinic reform passes Virginia Senate.
The bill requires that facilities that perform more than five first trimester abortions per month be subject to the same regulations as hospitals, which will hopefully help keep down the kind of abuses that were documented here by Live Action (and, much more horrifyingly, the atrocities committed in Pennsylvania by Kermit Gosnell). This rather commonsense consistency in regulating abortions would be normally out of reach | Read More »
On Obama’s ‘Trip to the Center,’ He Stumbles Over Planned Parenthood
In an interview with an NBC affiliate in Richmond, VA, President Obama responded to the recent vote to defund Planned Parenthood after a flood of videos exposed illegal activities taking place at their clinics including exhibiting a willingness to support sex trafficking of minors, secret abortions for minors, and giving “pimp” discounts. “I think sometimes these issues get manufactured,” [Obama] said “they get a lot of | Read More »
