Clinton’s Only Consistency: Ghastliness on Abortion

Ramesh Ponnuru, National Review

During the Obama years, liberalism became more aggressive in its support of abortion. Hillary Clinton’s campaign reflects this new attitude. If she is elected, her administration is likely to reach a new extreme in the depth of its commitment to keeping abortion legal, expanding subsidies for it, and insulating these policies from democratic review.

SCOTUS Sweeps Away Constitutional Liberties, Creates Nonexistent Rights

Rob Natelson, CNS News

Three recent Supreme Court decisions reveal in the area of personal rights, most of the justices are applying rules completely unrelated to the liberties provided by the U.S. Constitution. In two of the cases, the majority refused to protect clearly defined rights, and in the third, the majority strained to protect a “right” that is not expressly written.

Sick: Abortion Activists Stand In The Way Of Free Help For Low Income Babies

Why the Supreme Court's ruling could be worse for pro-lifers than you think

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

It is possible a more liberal Supreme Court could take away Casey's underappreciated concessions to pro-lifers. With the right combination of retirements and a Hillary Clinton presidency, and maybe just with a liberal Scalia replacement, the courts could take away pro-lifers' ability to influence abortion policy much at all.

Democratic Platform Calls For Taxpayer-Funded Abortions

Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

Unlike any previous major party platform, the final draft of the 2016 Democratic platform explicitly calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

Viguerie: Trump has zero chance of changing GOP pro-life platform

Ben Johnson, Life Site

Donald Trump said he would “absolutely” change the Republican Party's platform to allow abortion for the “three exceptions” of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. This afternoon, national pro-life and conservative leaders such as Richard Viguerie told LifeSiteNews: No, he won't.

In Wisconsin Trump Hits the Limit of His Stream of Consciousness Campaign

The arrest of Donald Trump’s campaign manager for grabbing a female reporter, and Trump’s ridiculous attempts to lie and tweet him out of the rap in the face of clear video evidence drove Trump’s numbers with women even lower. But Trump hit the limit of his stream of consciousness campaign with the truly bizarre statement that women who have an abortion should somehow be punished if abortion is illegal.

Behold the wood of the Cross…

Where is the pushback on Mrs. Clinton’s publicly announced plan that, if elected, she will lead her administration in a war on Christianity and Christian practices? The deafening silence from religious leaders is indicative of a problem we face throughout today’s body politic, and especially in the conservative movement, and that is a lack of moral courage in the face of pressure from those who seek to destroy our culture, the rule of law, and our liberty.

Part 2: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

What we see on the part of the Republican establishment is not an effort to deliver the nomination to Senator Ted Cruz, but an effort to create a chaotic situation in which no outsider has a majority, thereby delivering to the Washington Cartel’s powerbrokers and insiders the ability to choose the nominee at the Republican National Convention. If that happens, then conservatives will have to face the reality of working with Donald Trump or opposing him at the GOP Convention.

This Election Is Now About Abortion And Life

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

What cannot happen is a fractured evangelical base stands around two or three candidates and throws stones at itself. If that happens, we will see another 20 years of liberal Supreme Court justices, and another 20 or 30 million unborn babies killed. This election is now about ending abortion and preserving life, just like 1860 was about ending slavery. The sooner Christians understand that, the better.

Is There Any Part Of The Reagan Coalition Capitol Hill GOP Leaders Haven't Betrayed?

More spending, but not on the core constitutional responsibility of the federal government to provide for the common defense. A deteriorating national security posture and a rapid degradation of America’s military capabilities, intrusive and extra-constitutional federal interference in education and other powers reserved by the Constitution to the states, and the complete abandonment of any pretense of governing according to cultural conservative principles are the legacy of the past decade of Republican “leadership” on Capitol Hill.

The Establishment Media Misses The Real Message In Cruz’s Iowa Victory

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.

Grand Jury’s Indictment of Planned Parenthood Foe Isn’t the End of the Story

Pro-life advocate Shari Rendall writes while the indictment of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt seem to portend a bad omen for pro-lifers, Planned Parenthood is far from off-the-hook.  Following the indictment announcement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton both issued statements that the state’s investigation into Planned Parenthood remains ongoing and the grand jury’s action will have no impact on the probe.
