Trump Administration Lifts Onerous HHS Contraceptive Mandate, Litigation Ensues



On Friday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reversed the deeply controversial Obama-era Contraceptive Mandate which had forced religious employers to violate their religious beliefs by facilitating access to contraception in their employer-sponsored health care plans. Following the release of new HHS guidelines, Attorney General of California Xavier Becerra (D), Attorney General of Massachusetts Maura Healey (D), Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) were quick …

When will Congress Stop Federal Funding for Abortion?



According to a report in The Hill, an abortion-related conscience protection provision in the version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House last month may be not be allowed to stay in the bill in its current form. The House version of the AHCA includes provisions which would prevent federal tax credits from being used to subsidize eligible health care plans that include coverage for elective abortion. The Senate parliamentarian, however, …

The Abortion Movement Just Lost their War on the Unborn



On the campaign trail, Donald Trump often said, “I’m going to make every dream you ever dreamed about your country come true.” The “dream” of pro-lifers has been an America where the scourge of abortion is no more. That’s why they voted for Trump in overwhelming numbers, returning a pro-life majority in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Come next January, when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the …

Obama wants you to pay for abortions—but he doesn’t want you to know about it!



I’m all in favor of providing public health care for the poor and indigent, but the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) is coming to look more and more like a patchwork quilt of deceit. Everyone by now knows—many from sad experience—that the claims that “If you like your doctor and your health care plan, you can keep your doctor and your health care plan,” were simply not true. Hundreds of thousands of doctors …

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. …

Is Barack Obama the Worst President in American History?



For the past six years, America has been atoning for its great sin of slavery. I use the word “sin” because the secular creed on which our country was founded informs us that all men are created equal. The stain of slavery violated that creed. Slavery ended in this country a long time ago, of course. In 1863, to be exact, when Republican President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. For over 151 years, all …

The Mirena IUD is Becoming More Popular – and the Lawsuits are Piling Up



You know a contraceptive drug or device is in trouble when the lawsuits begin to multiply. A growing number of American women are turning to intrauterine devices (IUDs), reports Lawrence Finer of the Guttmacher Institute. Of all American women using birth control, some 7.5 percent had IUDs implanted by 2009. These numbers were double what they had been a few short years before. As befits an employee of a population control organization, Finer is pleased …
