Abortion rights trump MPs' freedom to vote their conscience, Trudeau says

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has said that any Liberal MP, regardless of their personal beliefs, would have to vote against any proposed legislation that could limit a women's right to an abortion. Women's reproductive rights trump the freedom of Liberal members of parliament to vote their conscience on abortion, Justin Trudeau said, adding that it's time that his party "actually defended rights."

The Religion of Liberalism and the 'Killing of Innocents'

In his primetime speech about going after ISIL , a sibilant Barack Obama promised America that "[w]e will degrade, and ultimately destroy" the band of head-chopping thugs that, with each passing day, is growing larger and stronger. The problem for America is that the president conveyed the message with significantly less conviction than when he promised us that with ObamaCare we could keep our own doctors .

Abortion debate shows women key to Florida governor election

One bill on a hot social issue in politics today, handled quite differently by Gov. Rick Scott and predecessor-turned-challenger Charlie Crist, has surged to the forefront in their intense campaign for governor. Crist, a Democrat, launched a new television ad last week featuring a bill Scott signed into law in 2011, one requiring doctors to show women an ultrasound or have it described to them before they can undergo an abortion unless they sign a form declining to see it.

Abortion-Ban Proponents Running in Jefferson County

I wrote last week about how senatorial candidate Cory Gardner's support for Colorado's personhood abortion ban was part of his formula for winning the 2010 Republican caucus process, which was a big step to his being elected to Congress. If you look at the State Senate races in Jefferson County today, you see that the influence of key personhood backers persists, meaning that Cory Gardner would have likely faced the same pressure to embrace personhood positions today as he did then.

New Missouri Abortion Regs Are Insulting to Women

Democrats decry jailing of mother over abortion drug

The case of a woman from rural Pennsylvania who was sentenced to jail time last week for furnishing so-called abortion pills to her pregnant daughter is receiving growing national attention. Her cause also is being picked up by Democrats who say the unusual criminal case is the result of Republicans' continued hostility toward women and their reproductive rights.
