Will the New U.S. Congress Protect Life Once Harry Reid’s “Roach Motel” Goes Out of Business?



For the last four years, the U.S. Senate has been the place where pro-life legislation went to die. Of more than a dozen pieces of pro-life legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives during the last two Congresses, not a single one was taken up by the Senate. Violating the Senate’s century-long tradition of deliberation and debate, outgoing Majority Leader Harry Reid (D), simply refused to bring them to the floor for a vote. …

Does Obamacare Fund Abortion? Let Us Count the Ways.



When Obamacare was signed into law in March, the President assured Americans that it does not, in any way, shape, or form, fund elective abortions. He even signed an executive order to this effect. The only problem with Obama’s claims, which are being repeated by politicians like Harry Reid and partisan groups like Democrats for Life of America, is that they are not true. The only real abortion restriction in Obamacare was in fact removed …

Time to Pay an “End-of-Life Visit” to ObamaCare



Today is the six-month anniversary of the passage of President Obama’s signature legislation, what has come to be known as ObamaCare. The White House is feting this semi-anniversary, but few Americans are in a mood to join the celebration. Obama, who can be thin-skinned when people disagree with him, was downright irritated when the early polls showed that a majority of Americans opposed his health care “reform” bill. He criticized the polls as premature, saying …

In His Push for Socialized Medicine, Harry Reid Trashes the Hyde Amendment



One of the most pro-life members of the U.S. Senate has now clarified what the pro-aborts and their liberal allies in the media have been trying desperately to obscure: The Senate "health care" bill as now written–because of the backroom deal between Harry Reid and Ben Nelson–will force us all to pay for abortions. The time to call your senator is now. Henry Hyde, whom I knew personally, was a pro-life hero. For over three …

What’s Next for the Pro-Life Movement in Health Care Reform?



By twisting the arms of freshman Democrats nearly out of their sockets, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, at the end of the day, managed to eke out passage of HR 3962, her health care reform bill. But her five-vote victory was so narrow that some pundits are now opining that the Senate version of the bill is dead. Don’t count on it. With the President, Pelosi and Reid all pushing for some kind of …

President’s Page: Focus on FOCA: With United Pro-Life Action, We Will Prevail



Barack Obama’s first act as president was not, as he had promised, to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). This misbegotten piece of legislation was not waiting on his desk when he entered the Oval Office, The Congress had vet to consider it. This slight delay does not mean that we can relax our guard. For FOCA would cement abortion-on-demand into law and muzzle all dissent. That means you and I, folks. To put …

Doug Kmiec’s Departure from the Pro-Life Movement



19 November 2008 — Vol. 10/ No. 49 The more incredible the claim, the greater the number of column inches the liberal media devotes to making it. That’s why The Washington Post, on November 18th, gave over such a large swath of its front page to religion writer Jacqueline Salmon, who fantasizes at length about the “growing number of anti-abortion pastors, conservative academics and activists [who] are setting aside efforts to outlaw abortion and instead …
