April 8, 2015 By: Jon Schweppe

Wow. Senator Rand Paul just gave the best answer on abortion I’ve ever seen—a complete home run.

Pro-abortionists love to force pro-life candidates to be very specific on abortion, and the media is often their willing accomplice. The media will happily force pro-life candidates to explain which exceptions they support, which they don’t, and generally just flummox them into eventually giving up on defending their position altogether outside of a vague declaration of being pro-life. After all, when you’re explaining, you’re losing.

This has been a frustrating trend to watch. Republicans have generally avoided the issue altogether, while Democrats continue to radicalize and become bolder in their pro-abortion ideology.

Abortion isn’t an issue on which conservatives need to be playing defense. Instead, we should be going on the attack and forcing liberals defend their radical views of supporting abortion without exception from the moment of conception to the moment of birth.

Enter Rand Paul.

Marjorie’s Media Pick of the Week: Rick Santorum

Senator and longtime pro-life advocate Rick Santorum went head to head with Whoopi Goldberg on The View this week, and did a great job countering her pro-abortion argument.

 

Sen. Santorum called for defunding Planned Parenthood, and instead reallocating their federal funding to comprehensive health centers that don’t provide abortions. Santorum also exposed a frequently repeated falsehood, adding:

“Planned Parenthood, for example, does not provide mammograms. Now, I know people say they do, but they don’t.”

Goldberg cut in, “Yeah, they do.”

Sen. Santorum corrected her, “In fact, Cecile Richards said yesterday in the hearing that, in fact, they do not. In fact,  there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services. They basically provide abortion, contraceptive, STDs, things – and pregnancy tests. That’s it. There are much more comprehensive women’s health care centers.”

Marjorie Dannenfelser is the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life organization dedicated to electing leaders and advancing legislation to reduce and ultimately end abortion. Continue Reading

Whoopi Goldberg Attacks Carly Fiorina: See Whoopi FAIL!

Carly Fiorina recently appeared as a guest panelist on ABC’s “The View,” and was asked by co-host Whoopi Goldberg to respond to a loaded question on the topic of life. However, even more ridiculous was Goldberg’s insinuation that someone who adheres to Christian values could not govern “everyone” but rather, could only govern Christians. The exchange between Goldberg and Fiorina was as follows:

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: You’re running — I assume you’re a person who is very, sort of, pro-life and believes in that. Are you going to run as a person going to govern for everyone or are you running on your Christian beliefs? Because I — you said some wonderful things and it made me ask the question: If you feel that women should have the choice -have the choices, why do you think choice is not a good thing?

CARLY FIORINA: Well, look, I think that abortion is obviously a very delicate subject. I happen to believe that science is proving us right. I mean, the zygote – the DNA in a zygote is the same the day you die. But I understand, respect, we don’t all agree. We do have common ground on this issue now. The majority of women, the majority of young people, the majority of Americans now think that late term abortion for any reason at all is a problem. So, what I say is let’s go find that —

GOLDBERG: I don’t think that’s actually — we have to keep —

FIORINA: I think if you read the polls, you would see that.
