A Durham abortion facility became the third to close down either temporarily or permanently last week due to health violations.
In the four decades since Roe v. Wade first opened wide the floodgates of abortion in America, those of us fighting to protect the unborn and their mothers have had, unfortunately, no shortage of public relations gaffes and poor explanations for the greater public.
Some Republicans in recent months have suggested that social issues, including the issue of protecting innocent, unborn children, will take a back seat during the 2012 election cycle. The nation’s unemployment rates, foreclosure rate, and credit rating, are all worse than they were when Obama took office in 2009.
At the Susan B. Anthony List, we have a clear mission: to advance pro-life women as political leaders and to elect and preserve pro-life candidates, Republicans and Democrats alike, who will not subordinate the sanctity of life to any other issue, whether that issue is health care reform, bankruptcy reform or deficit reductions.
The battle to dismantle the pro-abortion atrocity called Obamacare and to build a true Culture of Life is now underway, and a reckoning must happen for those turncoat Democrats.
The best way to get abortion out of health care: take it out. Don’t make us pay for it. It is that simple.
President Obama’s recent speech at Notre Dame was full of lofty and good-feeling language about finding common ground on the abortion issue. America is hungry to arrive at such ground. And indeed common ground on abortion policy does exist. But while the president has proved himself dedicated to positive tone, pleasant feeling and an air of civility in discussing the issue, he has completely avoided concrete common ground policy.
At this moment, the abortion issue is a powerful arrow in the GOP quiver. That it remains in the quiver is a perplexing strategic error.
The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a political action committee that supports pro-life female office-seekers, endorsed Sarah Palin's 2006 Alaska gubernatorial run because she was the whole package.
For me -- a transplanted, self-admitted southern politico -- tomorrow is going to be a banner day. Sarah Palin is speaking in my hometown, Greenville, North Carolina (home of the Fighting ECU Pirates), and Senators McCain and Obama will cap off the day with what I predict will be the pivotal debate of the election.
You don’t hear anybody saying, “You know I want to be like Lincoln because he was white,” or “What I find most attractive and compelling about President Roosevelt was that he was a man – and white!”
For years Rudy Giuliani tried to finesse his position on abortion with pro-life Republican voters. In order to disguise his support for so-called abortion rights, the former New York mayor professed to hate abortion.
Women's groups are incensed –incensed! Patriarchal Supreme Court Justices are after our rights! If we don't have the right to puncture unborn children's skulls moments from birth, women cannot live freely. But what does the Supreme Court's shifting gears to uphold a national ban on the partial birth abortion procedure really bode for women? Is it really a slippery slope back to the bad old days? Most women leaders purporting to represent women have an opinion, believe you me.
The conventional wisdom is often just that – conventional. Neither is it always wise. Right now the conventional wisdom among the punditocracy is that the results of the November election will turn almost entirely on the war in Iraq, Congressional malfeasance, and President Bush’s popularity, or lack thereof.
