Anti-Abortion Activist Admits Planned Parenthood Videos Were Designed To Destroy Organization

It shouldn’t come as any surprise to us that the videos created by the Center for Medical Progress were intended to destroy Planned Parenthood.

Republicans in Congress are advancing a bill to end […]

The GOP’s Right-Wing Terror Campaign Against Planned Parenthood

As most probably know by now, there was a domestic terrorist attack at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs yesterday afternoon.

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Visits Kim Davis in the Clink

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! My, that cell door makes an awful sound when it closes.  So definitive in its restriction of freedom.

Jeb Bush Blatantly Lies About Planned Parenthood in Desperate Attempt to Save His Campaign

It’s not exactly a secret that most Republicans oppose the Constitutional right for women to have control over their own bodies, including choosing for themselves whether or not to have an abortion.

Marco Rubio Doubles Down, Promises Glenn Beck He Will Ban Abortion As President

The Republican establishment has been trying to work their way back from the lunatic fringes on social issues.

Mike Huckabee’s Latest Comments Prove That These Fundamentalist Christians Are Just Like A Cult (Video)

For a while I’ve argued that the Republican party (especially the evangelical far-right) operates more like a cult than a political movement.

Judge Roy Moore Suggests Civil War Possible In Opposition To Marriage Equality

It goes without saying that after the recent ruling by the Supreme Court which legalized same-sex marriage, right-wing conservatives are extremely angry.

The Latest Republican Attack On The Poor: Ending Family Planning Services

One of the ways the Republican Party gets votes from religious conservatives is to claim that they are “pro-life” and oppose abortion. Over and over again, GOP candidates pass bills designed to make getting an abortion nearly impossible and make hyperbolic statements like saying they wish they could set themselves on fire over the issue. […]

Abortion Rates Decline Nationwide, Except In Two Conservative States

Abortion rates are on a major decline across the United States, and while social conservatives will point to this as proof that anti-abortion laws that were passed in red states work, it’s not as simple as that. While abortion rates were down in nearly all states that data was available for, Louisiana and Michigan actually […]
