Gary Herbert for president!

No, I'm not really endorsing Utah Governor Gary Herbert for president in 2016 – but the way he handled an activist judge's decision to redefine marriage proves Herbert would be better for the job than Chris Christie. On Friday, an Obama-appointed judge overturned Utah's state constitutional amendment protecting marriage – one passed by two-thirds of state voters in … [Read more...]

Have a Coke, a Baby, and a Smile

A new Coca-Cola ad is a jarring exception to the television industry's usually unrelenting negative coverage of family and parenthood. The advertising firm Santo Buenos Aires produced the 60-second spot to promote Coke Life, a new 36-calorie product sweetened with Stevia extract that may soon hit the shelves in the United States. The director films a couple's journey from pregnancy to the … [Read more...]

Planned Parenthood answers the question: Can my transgender girlfriend get me pregnant?

File this under “First World problems.” Planned Parenthood has posted a response on its Tumblr account to a reader who asked, "Can my trans[gender] girlfriend get me pregnant?" Someone who, understandably, wanted to remain anonymous wrote, “My girlfriend is trans and has been doing hormone replacement therapy for about a year. About how likely is it that she can still get me … [Read more...]

Can pictures of aborted children help end abortion?

Not really, but we'll talk about them. Abortionists perpetrate unspeakable crimes against unborn children, but some believe it is those who display pictures of their handiwork who are the real extremists. At times, even those in the pro-life movement have accused those who use “graphic images” of “extremism.” Do such images help or hurt the cause? I confess, I have struggled with the role … [Read more...]

It’s a Wonderful (Day to Take Your) Life

Once again, Hollywood has delivered what no one asked for. This time, it's a sequel to the heartwarming holiday classic, It's a Wonderful Life. The 1946 Frank Capra masterpiece, about an angel-in-training convincing a suicidal Jimmy Stewart that every life matters, could only be described as “pro-life.” The remake will deliver a much different message. Variety reports: Karolyn Grimes, who … [Read more...]

NARAL, Terry McAuliffe, and Cory Booker say: There is no God (or if there is, He doesn’t matter)

Today is Halloween and, like children, politicians occasionally don costumes to wrangle favors out of their neighbors. After the 2004 election, when “values voters” supporting traditional marriage amendments re-elected George W. Bush, national Democrats made a painfully concerted effort to present their views as part of their religious faith. But they can never keep up the charade … [Read more...]

PA Governor Ridge who ignored Gosnell’s House of Horrors accuses social conservatives of ‘tyranny’

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 29, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Republican governor faulted by a grand jury with allowing Kermit Gosnell to operate his “house of horrors” free from state inspections has delivered a scathing address, denouncing the GOP's pro-life and pro-family wing as “narcissists and ideologues” seeking to impose their own brand of “tyranny” on the United States. “Sometimes we … [Read more...]

Chris Christie short-arms the family

Politics has been compared to chess, poker, boxing, and“show business for ugly people.” But politics is so filled with artifice and contrivance that it can justly be compared to only one sport – professional wrestling. There is a classic scenario in pro wrestling: A promoter pairs a fan favorite up with a wrestler with a shady past. Over time, the hero is convinced to put his suspicions aside … [Read more...]

Some Cuccinelli donations you may not have heard about

The left-wing media are making a great deal about the fact that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli has donated thousands of dollars to crisis pregnancy centers. The abortion lobby, led by NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, has attempted to demonize the pro-life centers which, unlike abortion facilities, provide free medical care and other forms of relief to pregnant women. The media have … [Read more...]

The Weeping Baby Elephant and The Silent Scream (video)

For a few hours on Thursday, the all-seeing eyes of the world's media were fixed on the eyes of a pachyderm. In a story that tugged at heartstrings around the globe, the media reported that a baby elephant named Zhuangzhuang, born in a Chinese zoo on August 30, cried for five hours after being rejected by his mother. When zoo trainers saw her trying to stomp the newborn to death in her cage, … [Read more...]
