Abortion

Donald Trump

Donald has taken a few hits in the past two weeks and the talking heads have started saying Donald Trump is losing ground.

Donald took a big loss in Wisconsin and suffered the largest margin of defeat so far this primary season. He got cornered into a discussion on abortion and his comments were twisted and used against him, generating a huge amount of backlash.

Many were saying that Ted Cruz’s time has come and Donald is on the way out, but that is not true. They said Trump tried to be more presidential and it didn’t work.

Yesterday Donald was in his home state of New York and he went back to his natural self and it looked great. He hit Ted Cruz hard and the case he made is going to make it tough for Cruz to even beat Kasich.

Watch Donald attack Cruz.

New York ‘s primary couldn’t come at a better time for Donald Trump. The self-professed fan of winning needs to win. He needs a big win in the the winner-take-all delegates states. And the next few states favor him.

If Trump can avoid any big missteps and win New York, we are going to hear the talking heads singing a different tune.

We are already seeing him establish a very respectable foreign policy team and he is now working to reorganize his campaign and get serious. He is making some new hires, while others could be hearing “you’re fired”.

The Donald camp has also just hired veteran Republican strategist Paul J. Manafort to lead his delegate-corralling efforts, which is a serious move to win regardless of how many delegates Trump has going into Cleveland.

Donald also cleared his public schedule this week and is spending some time reorganizing his campaign and really getting a strategy down to win the nomination and not let the GOP steal it from him.

Just when people thought Trump might be out, he is starting to really get serious about forming the right campaign heading into a contested convention. He is seeing the writing on the wall and making plans to win no matter what the establishment throws at him.

Ted Cruz better enjoy the Wisconsin victory because he may not see another one for a while!

fake abortion

A woman who faked an abortion—so she could instead raise the baby with her gay best friend—has been sentenced to three years in jail, and has lost custody of her kid.

Her gay friend has also been sentenced to three years in jail. (All names in this case have been withheld by the courts, due to legal reasons.)

The long court battle started in 2010, when a woman got a pregnant by her ex-boyfriend. Not wanting to raise a child with him, she told her ex-boyfriend that she got an abortion.

But instead of following through with the abortion, she and her gay male best friend decided to keep the kid and raise it as their own. The friend was listed on the birth certificate as the child’s father.

Her plan might’ve worked—until a mutual friend of the woman and her ex-boyfriend met the child, and noticed the child was “the spitting image” of the ex-boyfriend.

The real father asked for a DNA test. When the mother and her friend refused to comply, he filed a lawsuit against them. The court quickly ordered a DNA test, and it was clear: the ex-boyfriend was the real father, and he had been duped.

The father said, in his testimony, talked about how devastated he was when his ex-girlfriend told him she got an abortion—and how many hours he had spent mourning the fact that his child had been killed. He described his last four years, since the child was conceived, as “four years of a nightmare.”

The child is now living full-time with her father, and her mother and her adoptive father were convicted of fraud.

The judge in the case had no sympathy for the mother or her friend.

“You persisted in this wicked scheme for a period of almost three years,” the judge scolded, after delivering the sentence. “In all respects this was an elaborate and cynical scheme to provide [the gay friend] with a child.”

He added, “It is clear on any view that this was a planned enterprise which involved a web of deceit and many lies told.”

Could Bill Clinton actually be pro-life?

The President who once said that abortion should be “legal, safe, and rare”—a big departure from the Democratic Party’s current all-abortion, all-the-time programming—doesn’t believe that.

According to newly-released audio recordings from a longtime Clinton friend and presidential biographer, Clinton had plenty to say about abortion. The audio was recorded in the late-1990s, when Clinton was still in the White House.

Decrying the “insensitivity” of the pro-choice lobby, Bill Clinton complained that activists were handing Republicans a winning issue and hurting their own cause.

He was also afraid that pro-choice activists “framed the question selfishly by putting it in terms of a woman’s right to do whatever she wanted,” which he thought made the whole movement seem like it was only about a “selfish woman’s right to crush her baby’s skull.”

But, unlike today’s Democrats who refuse to put a timestamp on when abortion should not be legal, Clinton was firmly against so-called “partial birth abortions.”

Clinton said: “I believe that if you can’t make up your mind in the first six months, you don’t have the right to have an abortion.”

Hillary Clinton is running for President—and intends to make her being a woman one of her strongest qualifications for office.

Part of that—the focus of the Left’s “war on women” rhetoric—is centered around abortion. It remains to be seen whether or not Bill’s comparatively conservative values (at least by the standards of the Democratic Party) will have any impact on her standing with liberal women.

Ben Carson is making waves for saying he’d love to see Roe v. Wade overturned—thus making abortion illegal.

But new reports from Carson’s political past are raising questions as to whether or not his pro-life stance is sincere.

Back in 1992, he appeared in a pro-life ad, for a group called “Vote Know” that was leading the fight against Maryland’s “Question 6” (which would throw out some key abortion-preventing law.)

But, facing criticism, he quickly rebuked the ad—saying he was misled by the people who filmed it, and that he didn’t realize it would be a political ad.

Even more curiously, he made his statements at a press conference with the group “Maryland for Choice”—which, like it sounds, was a driving force in trying to make abortion easier. Carson even stood at their podium, with their branding surrounding him, as he told the state of Maryland that he regretted appearing in the pro-life ad.

Federica Mathewes-Green, the former Vice President of Vote Know at the time, wrote that she was shocked by Carson’s rebuke—and how he chose to team up with their pro-choice opponents to criticize the ad.

“It was not just that he had second thoughts about the ad, but that he stood at Maryland for Choice’s podium to say so,” she explained. “We were bewildered and greatly saddened. And of course, ‘Even Dr. Carson says you lied’ became the inaccurate epithet thrown at us till the end of the campaign.”

Question 6 ultimately passed—meaning the pro-choice rules went into effect—and Carson’s rebuke was, apparently, not an insignificant part of that.

While Carson has gone on to be an advocate for pro-life values, the question remains: does he stand with his current comments or with his comments at the Maryland for Choice podium?

A new hashtag popped up on Twitter–designed to get women more excited about abortion.

The hashtag, #ShoutYourAbortion, started trending on the social media site on Tuesday. It was, apparently, designed by Planned Parenthood to help fight back against Congress voting to defund the embattled abortion giant.

Planned Parenthood, always controversial, has been in the limelight after ten hidden camera videos appeared, showing the nonprofit was apparently harvesting organs from aborted fetuses and selling them for profit.

Unfortunately for Planned Parenthood, the hashtag quickly backfired.

Rather than being a forum for women to “shout their abortion”–and, apparently, publicly declare how proud they were to abort their unborn child–the hashtag was quickly hijacked by pro-life supporters, who began telling their stories about why they didn’t get an abortion.

On Facebook, a woman named Leah, for instance, posted: “I was 16. She was unexpected. ‪Planned Parenthood‬ offered me an abortion. I was horrified and quickly declined. Her name is Taylor. She is 19 now. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can’t imagine life without her.”

And another pro-life supporter named Thomas, posted, succinctly, “This. This is why I f***ing hate people… Just because something can be done doesn’t mean it should.”

Over the past few years, pro-choice supporters have veered farther left on abortion. While former President Bill Clinton once said abortion should be “legal, safe, and rare,” today’s liberals don’t have any pretense about wanting to discourage abortion.

Nowadays, they want to be able to wear abortion as a point of pride–encouraging women to “shout” their abortion, even though America remains widely in favor of restrictions on abortion.

Donald Trump’s podium might’ve been at center stage at Thursday night’s presidential debate–but he was clearly sharing the spotlight with Carly Fiorina.

Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, was nearly kept out of the primetime debate altogether. She only prevailed due to widespread public and media outcry that forced CNN, the debate host, to rework their selection criteria to allow 11 candidates on top stage.

In retrospect, Trump’s probably wishing she had been kept out after all.

In the grueling three hour debate, Fiorina shined from beginning to end, even as her opponents, like Trump, began to fizzle.

Her biggest dig against frontrunner Donald Trump was when she was asked about his attacking her looks during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

“Women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said,” she replied, to applause.

But the largest applause line of the night came from Fiorina as well, when she passionately discussed the Planned Parenthood fetuses-for-pay scandal.

“Anyone who has watched this video tape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, to watch these tapes,” she said, to thunderous applause. “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”

It remains to be seen whether Fiorina’s second strong performance will help her poll numbers rise against Donald Trump.

When making the round of interviews the following morning, Fiorina just had this to say about her performance: “I was very satisfied.”

Pope Francis had some touching words to say to a single mom, who decided not to abort her children–but Time magazine deleted some key passages that they thought were “too offensive.”

Here’s what the pope actually said:

“I know that people can sometimes look askance at you. But I’ll tell you one thing. You’re a brave woman because you were capable of bringing these two daughters into the world. You could have killed them inside your womb and you respected life, you respected the life you were carrying inside you and God will reward you for that and He does reward for you for that. Don’t be ashamed. Hold your head high. ‘I didn’t kill my daughters. I brought them into the world.’ I congratulate you.”

But, when Time released the transcript of the pope’s comments, well, key passages were missing. They deleted “You could have killed them inside your womb” and “I didn’t kill my daughters.”

Time, apparently, thought that the word “kill” to describe an abortion was too graphic.

Despite being hailed for liberalizing the Catholic Church in some ways, Pope Francis hasn’t wavered from his church’s firm pro-life stance–and it’s clear, on his tour of the United States, that he’s not going to kowtow to pro-choice sensibilities.

It’s unclear of who Time though the pope was offending, but clearly they would rather not have their readership see the word “kill” in the same passage that discusses abortion. Even if it’s coming from Pope Francis himself.

When the media is censoring the pope–the head of one of the largest religions in the world–over touching comments he made to cheer on a single mom who chose the more difficult route rather than abort her kids, it’s clear that the mainstream media won’t let anything stand in their way of their leftist, pro-abortion agenda.

Yahoo! Parenting columnist Hallie Levine is making waves–for saying she wishes she would have aborted her daughter.

Levine’s daughter Johanna, 7, has Down syndrome.

Her article directly targets the new Ohio law, which banned the abortion of babies with Down syndrome. It’s one of just two states with that kind of law on the books.

As many as 85% of babies with Down syndrome were aborted, according to a study–hence why Ohio felt the need to step in.

But while Levine loves her daughter, and often raves about her in her parenting column–but she said that, had she known her daughter would have aborted her.

“If I had had a prenatal diagnosis, I would have obtained an abortion. Today, I am beyond grateful that I didn’t. But I cannot ever in any circumstances imagine insisting others not have that right,” she wrote.

She continued: “My daughter arrived a month early, with a shock of dark hair, a huge, lusty cry — and a diagnosis of Down syndrome. An hour after she was born, a team of specialists were in the delivery room informing me Johanna had an intestinal obstruction that would require immediate surgery, as well as a suspected heart defect. I just stared at them in absolute shock, thinking, ‘I never signed up for this.'”

When it comes to the anti-abortion law in Ohio, however, she thinks women should be able to make their own decision–even though Levine admits she would have regretted aborting her daughter.

“There are many folks — some of whom are in the Down syndrome community — who look at my story and point to it smugly as a tale of a woman who thought having a child with Down syndrome would be her worst nightmare, but triumphed. But my relationship with my daughter was something that had to develop on its own; if I had had a prenatal diagnosis, but had been forced to continue the pregnancy like Ohio legislators want, it would have been a disaster.”

Catholics couldn’t have seen this coming: on Tuesday, Pope Francis has called on priests to pardon women who have had abortions.

That runs directly counter to decades of strong Catholic opposition to abortion.

“I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it,” he said. “…[While] the tragedy of abortion is experienced by some with a superficial awareness… many… believe that they have no other option.”

He added, “I am well aware of the pressure that has led [women] to this decision,” he wrote in the announcement. “I know that it is an existential and moral ordeal.”

Francis’s new stance is much more akin to modern liberal ideals than it is to traditional Catholic teachings–basically accepting that, even though some women seek abortion just because they would rather not have a baby, many of them don’t see any other choice.

Currently, abortion is considered a grave sin–one for which a woman could be excommunicated. Forgiveness can only be granted by senior church figures.

In fact, as recently as 2004, the Catholic Church even sought to deny communion to Democratic presidential candidate, then-Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.), for his support of abortion rights.

But now, the tide might be changing–even for the Catholic Church–thanks to the reformist-minded Pope Francis.

For now, Francis’s relaxed rules on abortion will only be in effect between December 8, 2015, and November 20, 2016–but it’s without a doubt a sign of things to come for the quickly-liberalizing Catholic Church.

At a campaign rally in Ohio, Hillary Clinton compared Republicans to terrorists, because of their “extreme” views on women’s rights.

“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups,” she said. “We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world. But it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the President of the United States. Yet, they espouse out of date and out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We’re going forward. We’re not going back.”

She doesn’t specify which “extreme” views that Republicans apparently hold–though she’s undoubtedly talking about abortion, the foundation of the so-called “war on women.”

Except Republicans are hardly extreme when it comes to abortion–the majority of Americans, according to a Gallup poll released earlier in the summer, believe that abortion should be illegal some or all of the time. And that number has undoubtedly been impacted by the recent Planned Parenthood scandal–which showed top brass from the venerable abortion clinic selling the body parts of aborted fetuses.

Hillary’s fierce words against Republicans come at a time when her campaign is largely seen as flailing.

In several states, she’s already fallen behind fringe liberal candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and she does worse in polling against Republican candidates than Vice President Joe Biden, who is said to be weighing a run for President.

With her numbers tanking, it’s clear that Hillary is playing the only card she has left: over-the-top gender-based attacks on Republicans.
