New Polls Confirm Romney Momentum in Battleground States New polling data confirms Mitt Romney is surging in key battleground states and could be headed not only to an election victory over pro-abortion President Barack Obama but a bigger victory than initially expected. Roanoke College surveyed likely voters in Virginia and found Romney leading by five percent: Governor Mitt Romney has overtaken President Barack Obama by a very narrow margin in Virginia (49% – 44%), according to a Roanoke College Poll conducted after the Presidential debates.

Eric Holder Linked to Doctor Who Killed Patient in Abortion New documents a conservative publication obtained link Attorney General Eric Holder with a Georgia-based abortion practitioner responsible for killing a patient in an abortion and who has been accused of Medicaid fraud. Human Events says Holder has ties to Tyrone Cecil Malloy (right) and that they help explain why Holder has failed to prosecute abortion practitioners who run afoul of federal laws and why he has been eager to prosecute pro-life advocates who protest outside of abortion centers.

Poll: Black Pastors Stumping for Obama Again in Churches A new Pew poll of voters finds pastors at black pastors are apparently, once again, stumping for pro-abortion President Barack Obama when talking about the upcoming election during their sermons. A Pew poll out today shows 45 percent of regular attendees at black churches say their pastor are talking about the election in a manner that is favorable to Obama, while not one African-American surveyed indicated discussion of the elections was favorable for Romney.

Election Will Have Major Impact on Abortion, Vote Pro-Life Nobody knows who’s gonna win. Polls, projections, studies, reports, and well-paid pundits have plenty of predictions, but nobody knows what’s gonna happen. We do know a few other things, though. For one, we know that whoever is elected president of the United States may play a major role in reshaping the Supreme Court. As the New York Times said back in June. Read More

Planned Parenthood Sinks $835K More Into Attacking Romney, $13M Total The Planned Parenthood abortion business is putting another $835,000 into its efforts to attack Mitt Romney’s pro-life positions — reaching almost $13 million in its 2012 election efforts for President Obama. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund will spend $853,000 to run a 60-second radio ad on Colorado, Ohio and Virginia radio stations from now until Election Day. The ad relies on the some tactic it has used before to bash Romney — saying his pro-life views on abortion and women “seem like they’re from the 1950s.” Read More

More Support Than Ever for Repealing Pro-Abortion Obamacare You have to assume President Obama is sincere when he says he doesn’t mind the Affordable Health Care Act being referred to as “ObamaCare,” described as “the president’s signature domestic achievement and the source of a multi-year, major national policy debate about the role of government, health care, and insurance regulation.” (Alas, such shorthand misses that ObamaCare is not only riddled with abortion language and incentives but also gives federal bureaucrats the power to impose rationing standards on all health care providers that would require them to deny some lifesaving treatments even if the patient is willing and able to pay for it.)

Pro-Life Group Exposes Senate Candidates’ Pro-Abortion Records CitizenLink, the policy arm of Focus on the Family, is challenging the pro-abortion views of seven U.S. Senate candidates by sending more than three-quarters of a million pieces of mail to micro-targeted voters in their states. In “Planned Parenthood Doors” – a gatefold piece in which Planned Parenthood’s “doors” swing open – CitizenLink exposes the priorities of Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Jon Tester (D-MT), who threatened to shut down the government unless the nation’s largest abortion business continued to get taxpayer funding.

Obama’s Abortion-HHS Mandate a Full-Fledged War on Religion The fact that Tyndale House Publishers, based in Carol Stream, has needed to take a stand in court against ObamaCare’s abortion pill mandate should itself shock most Americans. The publisher simply believes that devout Christians in America are exercising religion when they publish the Bible and give the proceeds to religious charity. But even this idea is now disputed.

Hey President Obama: Women Vote on All Issues, Not Just Abortion I come from a line of strong women. Unlike many of their generation, both my grandmothers earned college degrees. Both studied political science, followed politics nearly all their lives and had lives rich with experience. Each had the challenge of raising teenagers in the 1960s and the joy of watching the Iron Curtain fall. With one deceased and the other suffering the signs of aging, I’m glad they aren’t following this election closely. Both would be angered over how some politicians and political parties are courting female voters. Read More

Critics say AG Holder’s ties to abortion industry create conflict of interest

Eric Holder and his wife, Dr. Sharon Malone Holder.
By Troy Anderson and Will Swaim | Watchdog.org: Eric Holder Jr.’s family is moving fast and furiously to bury the U.S. attorney general’s ties to one of Georgia’s most notorious abortion doctors.

Just cleared in the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning debacle, the nation’s top lawman now faces allegations that his connection to Dr. Tyrone Cecil Malloy is a conflict of interest that helps explain Holder’s failure to prosecute abortion providers who run afoul of federal law.

Critics say it also may explain why Holder has been eager to prosecute pro-life advocates who counsel women outside abortion clinics.

Documents obtained by Watchdog.org show that Holder’s wife and sister-in-law co-own, through a family trust, the building where Malloy operated. A Georgia grand jury indicted Malloy on Medicaid fraud charges in 2011. A state medical board twice reprimanded the doctor.

Holder and his wife, Sharon Malone Holder, an obstetric and gynecological doctor at Foxhall OB/GYN in Washington, D.C., failed to respond to several requests for comment.

But reached by phone at her home in Minneapolis, Margie Malone Tuckson, Holder’s sister-in-law, said there’s no link at all — that Fulton County tax records showing the property belongs to her and Holder’s wife “are wrong.”

“I don’t own this property and my sister does not own this property. We are not technically on this deed,” Malone Tuckson said.

However, public documents reviewed by Watchdog.org show that the family transferred ownership to a family trust in 2009, eight months after President Barack Obama’s inauguration. But even the new deed directly names Holder’s wife and sister-in-law as trustees. After inquiries by Watchdog.org reporters, Tuckson contacted the Fulton County Assessor’s office and asked them to change tax records to reflect the “new” ownership.

But none of these technical changes obscures the Holders’ conflict of interest. Catherine Davis, a founding member of the National Black Prolife Coalition and president and founder of The Restoration Project — a Stone Mountain, Ga.-based pro-life, pro-family organization — said she’s outraged by the revelations.

“There is a clear conflict of interest when the man charged with pursuing those that abuse the system is also one who is engaged in some way with the business,” said Davis, whose organization brought the issue to the attention of Watchdog.org.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, a national pro-life organization based in Wichita, Kan., said the disclosures help him understand why Holder has been targeting pro-life advocates.

In recent months, judges have blocked Holder’s efforts to punish pro-life supporters counseling women outside abortion clinics. In one case, Holder’s office agreed to pay Mary “Susan” Pine $120,000 for its filing of an “improper lawsuit,” according to a statement by Liberty Counsel, an Orlando, Fla.-based nonprofit legal firm. Pine counseled women on the sidewalk outside a Florida abortion clinic.

“It looks to me like the attorney general and his wife are in business with the abortion industry, which makes a lot of sense and helps explain why (Holder’s Justice Department) is prosecuting pro-lifers and losing the cases around the country,” Newman said.

“They have been attempting to prosecute pro-life people under the (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act of 1994), and as far as I know they have lost 100 percent of those cases in the last four years. This (Malone Holder’s property interest) explains his bias. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anybody that Holder and the Obama administration are extremely biased against pro-life people and in favor of the pro-abortion crowd.”

Fulton County tax records show Holder’s wife and sister-in-law own the building, located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Ga. A statement from the Georgia Department of Law shows the building was home to Old National Gynecology, Malloy’s medical practice devoted to the performance of abortions. . . .[Due to the article's length, this section of content has been omitted.]

HOLDER’S INACTION Karen Handel, the former secretary of state in Georgia and a former senior vice president of public policy for the Susan G. Komen Center, said she was “shocked” by the findings of the Watchdog.org investigation.

“It certainly underscores the deep ties the Obama administration has to the abortion issue,” said Handel, author of the new book, “Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”

“This certainly seems to shed some additional light into why Obama and his team seem obsessed with protecting Planned Parenthood and abortion rights at the expense of other important issues in the country,” Handel said.

The Georgia and national office of Planned Parenthood did not return calls for comment.

Davis’ organization, the National Black Prolife Coalition, has been working with Georgia pro-life activists on the state’s failure to enforce abortion regulations. Davis also spearheaded a billboard campaign, “Betrayed – Abortion in the Hood,” to call attention to the pro-abortion views of many African-American leaders and the disproportionately high rates of abortion in black communities. Abortion is the No. 1 one killer of African Americans, according to the National Black Prolife Coalition.

“Here in Georgia, almost 60 percent of abortions in the state are on black women, and it’s been that way for 15 years,” Davis said. “In New York, for every 1,000 babies born alive, 1,448 are aborted.

“In every state that reports abortion figures, you will find it’s more likely that black women are leading. In Virginia, it’s 47 percent of black women. In Mississippi, it’s 78 percent of black women. The impact is devastating.”

The Watchdog.org investigation, Davis said, helps explain this phenomenon and reveals why Holder hasn’t more aggressively investigated and prosecuted alleged Medicaid fraud in the abortion industry.

Davis pointed to cases in which activists have sued Planned Parenthood for alleged Medicaid fraud – in Georgia, Iowa, Texas, New York, and Massachusetts – but where Holder’s Justice Department has failed to act.

“The U.S. attorney general has not at all pursued a case against any of them, including this one in Georgia where his wife owns the property,” Davis said.

The controversy comes amid growing concerns about the extent of alleged Medicaid fraud among abortion providers nationwide and a congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood.

In February, the Alliance Defense Fund – recently renamed the Alliance Defending Freedom – issued a report to Congress identifying “waste, abuse and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood affiliates and other abortion providers.” The report analyzed 10 state audits that uncovered nearly $8 million in Medicaid overpayments to Planned Parenthood affiliates. The report also looked at 38 federal audits of state family planning programs with up to $99 million in overbilling charges.

The ADF is representing two former Planned Parenthood clinic managers in lawsuits in Texas and Iowa that allege Medicaid overbilling and fraud. If the ADF prevails in the Iowa lawsuit, Planned Parenthood could be ordered to pay the federal government and Iowa as much as $5.5 billion in False Claims Act damages and penalties, said Michael Norton, the former U.S. attorney in the District of Colorado and a senior counsel at the ADF.

“Our overall goal with respect to these kinds of cases is to defund Planned Parenthood,” Norton said. “Planned Parenthood is responsible for 350,000 abortions a year and is the nation’s largest abortion provider. It’s obviously well tied in with the current administration. This president is the most pro-abortion president in history and he has substantially direct and beneficial ties to Planned Parenthood. They’ve spent a lot of money in support of this president’s re-election.”

In recent months, various organizations have expressed growing concern about the connections between the Obama administration and Planned Parenthood.

“Under President Obama, we have seen the biggest taxpayer funding of abortion in our history,” Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver said in a statement. “Taxpayers should never be forced to violate their conscience and fund any abortion organization. The Obama HHS mandate will force religious employers to fund abortion-inducing drugs, despite their religious objections.”

U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., who is leading the congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood, told Watchdog.org that the ADF report and a similar one by Americans United for Life raises questions about the extent of Medicaid fraud among abortion providers.

“Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, yet last year it received $487 million from taxpayers while having annual income of $1 billion,” Stearns said in an emailed statement. “Although Planned Parenthood is barred from using taxpayer funds to perform abortions, these dollars are fungible and allow the group to use funds from other sources ostensibly for abortions.

“My investigation of Planned Parenthood is the first time Congress has asked this group to account for its use of public funds. Given the revenues of Planned Parenthood and its ability to raise funds, we should end its taxpayer support.”

FINES AND MORE TRAINING Malloy’s 2011 indictment was not his first run-in with the law.

In 1999, one of his patients lost a baby shortly after birth, according to Georgia Composite Medical Board records. The Composite State Board of Medical Examiners determined that the woman had not received proper treatment. Malloy was publicly reprimanded, ordered to receive additional training and fined $5,000, according to the records.

In 2008, he received another public reprimand, was ordered to receive even more training and fined $10,000 after one of his patients died shortly after a botched abortion, according to the medical board’s records.

In September 2011, Malloy filed papers with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office to terminate the Old National Gynecology corporation. However, his medical license remains active, according to the Composite State Board of Medical Examiners.

“To the best of our knowledge, Dr. Malloy is still performing abortions in the Atlanta area despite the indictment for Medicaid fraud,” Georgia Right to Life spokeswoman Suzanne Ward said.

The Watchdog.org investigation, Wolven said, makes it clear that Holder has a conflict of interest when it comes to investigating and prosecuting abortion providers allegedly engaged in Medicaid fraud. She said Congress should investigate further.

“I think Eric Holder needs to step down immediately, not just because of this conflict of interest, but with everything taken together as a whole,” Wolven said. “He was investigated earlier this year in the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. He’s prosecuting pro-lifers needlessly. They have had to go through the tremendous turmoil, stress and expense of going to federal court just to have the cases thrown out.”

As a former Department of Justice employee, Norton said it’s vitally important for criminal prosecutors to avoid any potential conflict of interest.

“In these kinds of positions, you have to be purer than Caesar’s wife,” Norton said. “You can’t take a chance and scoff at conflict of interest issues. It’s vital to maintain the credibility of the criminal justice system to be above board in all respects.”

Romney Early Voting Lead Could Portend Election Victory Mitt Romney holds a strong lead in early voting results that could pave the way for an election victory over pro-abortion President Barack Obama. Yesterday, Gallup leased a new poll showing Romney leading Obama in early voting, something that had been a key part of the Obama campaign strategy. The polling firm also reported that more Republicans than Democrats have already voted by a margin of 19 to 15 percent. Read More

Pro-Life Baptist Leader Richard Land Endorses Mitt Romney Richard Land, a Baptist leader who has been one of the leading pro-life evangelicals for many years has written an opinion piece in which he lays out the case for social conservatives as to why they should vote for Mitt Romney. Land is executive editor of The Christian Post and president of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, but wrote the endorsement piece as a private citizen. The endorsement represents a break from his 24-year-old tradition of not endorsing presidential candidates. Read More

Catholic Bishop: Vote for Obama “Stretches the Imagination” Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn is the latest Catholic official to say that voting for pro-abortion President Barack Obama is essentially off limits for Catholic voters. He said the Catholic Church needs to do a better job of teaching Catholic voters who gravitate towards pro-abortion candidates. In his column in the diocesan newspaper, Bishop DiMarzio wrote: Read More

Mitt Romney is Right, De-Fund The Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz The Register recently ran a news piece slamming Mitt Romney’s plan to defund Planned Parenthood. (“Why it matters” 10/25/12). Planned Parenthood should be defunded. Here’s why: 1. Planned Parenthood duplicates services offered by county health. With overhead costs, this is an inefficient use of taxpayer funds. Read More

Video: Obama’s Denying Religious Freedom Denies Social Justice The pro-life group CatholicVote has released a new video that addresses issues of concern to Catholic voters who may be inclined to support pro-abortion President Barack Obama for re-election. The video shows how Obama’s HHS mandate, which denies religious freedom to Catholic schools, businesses and organizations, makes it more difficult to promote social justice areas like helping the poor.

Romney Leads in National, State Polls in Election’s Final Week In the final week of the elections, Mitt Romney leads pro-abortion President Barack Obama in new state and national polls as pro-life groups are working to turn out as many pro-life voters as possible. His sustained leads in the polls following the first debate in Denver have led many political pundits to move from speculating whether Romney will win the election to wondering whether he will win by a bigger margin than expected.

Why Every Christian Voter Should Vote for Mitt Romney The Christian Post asked me to distill the case for Mitt Romney down to 400 words. Considering that I’ve probably written (conservatively) more than 400,000 on the topic, it was a challenge. But here it is — the 400 word Christian case for Mitt Romney. Share with all your wavering friends: This election presents perhaps the clearest moral contrast of my adult life. On one side is a Republican candidate who is pro-life, supports marriage, defends religious liberty, has real-world experience creating jobs, and has a realistic understanding of the threat of jihad. Read More

Pro-Abortion Biden Claims He’s a “Practicing Catholic” In New Ad In a last-ditch effort to get Catholic voters to support pro-abortion President Barack Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, who also backs abortion, has released a new web ad. In the ad, he claims he is a “practicing Catholic” and he claims Obama’s record matches Catholic doctrine. “As a practicing Catholic like many of you, I was raised in a household where there was absolutely no distinction between the values my mom and dad drilled into us and what I learned from the nuns and priests who educated me,” Biden says. “We call it Catholic social doctrine: ‘Whatever you do to the least of these, you do for me.’” Read More

Romney Applauded for Trying to Save Baby From Abortion With Barack Obama continuing to slip in the polls, speculation persists that Obama or his supporters will try to spring an “October surprise,” some shocking allegation to hurt Mitt Romney just before election day. One web site suggested that abortion supporters might try to re-surface an old story that they apparently think will hurt Romney’s chances of getting elected if it gets out widely. Read More

Catholic Bishop: Vote Pro-Abortion and Jeopardize Your Soul As we head into the final stretch of the campaign, we are starting to see abortion workers give up on their stereotypes … of YOU. Weeks into the campaign, all the labels are finally set aside. The workers begin to question what they are doing … and why it is wrong. This has already led to three workers having a change of heart during this campaign! Read More

Pro-Life Ad Exposes Obama, Biden Falsehoods on Abortion The pro-life women’s group Susan B. Anthony List launched a new web ad countering the false statements made by President Obama and Vice President Biden on the campaign trail. The new ad debunks the claim that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion company, provides mammograms but does not provide abortions. The ad also hits back on the falsehood that religious institutions including hospitals and charities are not forced to provide coverage of abortion-inducing drugs under the HHS Preventive Services Mandate.

Voting Ad Has Kids Singing: Romney Will Let Sick People Die A new video from an ad agency features children singing a liberal theme song about the problems that will supposedly occur should Democrats not vote and Mitt Romney becomes president. In the video, the children sing that sick people will be required to “just die” in a Romney presidency. The video is shocking enough without the false characterization of Romney as opposing health care for seniors or the disabled. Never mind that the claim is more appropriate for the Obama administration, which has been tagged with supporting “death panels” and health care rationing that will take place under Obamacare once it is fully implemented.

Election Could Decide Fate of Abortion for 40 More Years While the economy dominates the election, there is much at stake for unborn children and those who want to ensure they are protected by law from the violence of abortion. Next January, the United States marks 40 years of virtually unlimited abortion under Roe v. Wade and more than 55 million unborn babies have lost their lives in this national travesty. The next president will have an opportunity during the four-year term to leave an indelible mark on the nation’s high court. Read More

“Catholics United” Attacks the Church on the HHS Mandate When the Catholic Bishops called for a nationwide protest against the HHS mandate they fundamentally changed the topography of Catholic outreach in 2012. The battle over the Catholic vote was moved closer to the parish, not just its parking lots, but the pulpit itself. In the last three presidential elections, bishops, priests and deacons were accused of partisanship when they spoke on opposition to abortion or the defense of true marriage anmd opposition to the counterfeit notion of “same-sex marriage”. Archbishop Chaput, for example, while in Denver had to pay $45,000 to defend himself against an accusation made to the IRS by a ‘Catholic’ group supporting abortion. Read More

Planned Parenthood’s Taxpayer Funding Subsidizes Its Abortions “No federal funds pay for abortion,” is Planned Parenthood’s favored response whenever taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider is questioned. But even in spite of funding restrictions such as the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits Medicaid funds from being used directly for abortion (a restriction which Planned Parenthood unequivocally states it “strongly opposes”[i]), Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding subsidizes its abortion practice. Federal law, even before Roe v. Wade, has been concerned about abortion providers like Planned Parenthood misusing “family planning” funds to support their abortion businesses. Read More

Abortion Clinic Staffers Try to Disrupt 40 Days for Life As we head into the final stretch of the campaign, we are starting to see abortion workers give up on their stereotypes … of YOU.

Like Alfred Kinsey, Obama HHS “Grooming” Children for Sex My dear friend and colleague Dr. Judith Reisman, a visiting law professor at Liberty University School of Law, recently guest lectured during “Sexual Behavior and the Law,” a course I teach. Dr. Reisman’s lecture was filmed by CSPAN and will be airing soon. In past years, Dr. Reisman has served as scientific consultant to four U.S. Department of Justice administrations, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). She is a world renowned expert on the discredited research of bug doctor turned “sexologist,” Alfred Kinsey. Read More

Abortion Clinic Administrator Admits Ignoring Statutory Rape The fact that abortion clinic staff routinely protect statutory rapists is not a new revelation, especially to the pro-life movement. Life Dynamics exposed this years ago, and Live Action followed that up with video proof from Planned Parenthood clinics in six states. Yet, I was still surprised to read an interview with a man calling himself “George” who runs the administrative end of an abortion clinic in New York blatantly admit that he ignores statutory rape. He was doing an “Ask Me Anything” interview on Reddit.com, a news aggregation website. (I’m not recommending Reddit to anybody because of some of the content that routinely shows up.) During an AMA, any Reddit user can ask questions, and the person doing the AMA can stay as long as he or she wants, answering as many questions as they want. Read More

The 2012 Election Could Decide Fate of Abortion for 40 More Years

Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com : While the economy dominates the election, for those of us who long for the day unborn children are protected by law from the violence of abortion, there is much at stake in this election.

Next January, our nation marks 40 years of virtually unlimited abortion under Roe v. Wade and more than 55 million unborn babies have lost their lives in this national travesty ever since. The next president will have an opportunity during the four-year term to leave an indelible mark on the nation's high court.

Consider this: the average age of retirement from our nation's highest court is 71.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is 79
Justice Antonin Scalia is 76
Justice Anthony Kennedy is 76
Justice Stephen Breyer is 74

We already know where Obama stands on Roe and four decades of killing children and hurting women -- he's appointed two pro-abortion Supreme Court justices in Elana Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. They will keep Roe in place for another generation.

With Mitt Romney, he has repeatedly called for overturning Roe v. Wade. He has said he would appoint the kinds of judges who would not make law from the bench as they did in 1973 with Roe, but who would strictly interpret the Constitution.

Romney's top judicial advisors include pro-life stalwarts like former Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork and pro-life Harvard professor Mary Ann Glendon. Leading pro-life attorneys like Jordan Sekulow, David French, and James Bopp have confirmed they trust Romney as president when it comes to judges.

LifeNews is continuing to work seven days a week to inform pro-life voters about the important implications of the presidential race like this. We're informing hundreds of thousands of pro-life people about what is at stake.

Also, LifeNews needs your help>/b> to continue our pro-life Election 2012 efforts. As you can see, the fate of millions of unborn children rests on the results of this election.

No Higher Power: Obama's War On Religious Freedom

Eagle Forum:
The Washington Times: . . . "authors Phyllis Schlafly and George Neumayr assert President Obama and his administration are bringing to America’s faith-based institutions. In short, freedom of “worship” — inside your church, mosque or synagogue — may be guaranteed, but schools and hospitals affiliated with religious institutions may be in danger. Ditto for military chaplains, physicians, nurses or employers whose faith won’t allow them to support same-sex wedding ceremonies or pay for employee’s contraception.

"Mrs. Schlafly, a conservative firebrand for five decades, and Mr. Neumayr, a contributing editor of the American Spectator magazine, are each devoted members of the Roman Catholic Church, and, presumably, traditional ones at that. It is from that perspective, and that of conservative bishops, that this book first springs, even if its warnings transcend any one denomination or faith."

Shocking Obama “Voting=Sex” Ad Copies One From Vladimir Putin The shocking ad from the Obama campaign that compares voting to sex and first-time voting to losing one’s virginity is a copycat of an ad released during a Russian election campaign by Vladimir Putin. The Putin ad was also intended to appeal to younger voters based on sexual themes. In the Obama campaign ad, left-wing actress Lena Dunham says, “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.” Later, the view learns she is talking about voting and not sex. Read More

Pro-Lifers React to Obama Sex Ad: Practice Obama Abstinence The pro-life community has reacted swiftly to the controversial Obama ad that likens voting to sex and first-time voting to losing your virginity. A group of pro-lifers called Pro Life Artists Unite created a new image that encourages people to practice “Obama Abstinence” by not voting for the president for re-election. The counter-image features left-wing actress Lena Dunham, and the message “Don’t lose your job because of an unwanted Presidency.” Read More

Newspaper Confirms Obama Lied on Planned Parenthood, Mammograms The Washington Post has confirmed President Barack Obama lied about the Planned Parenthood abortion business doing mammograms during comments the other night on the Jay Leno show. Obama appeared on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday and suggested that Mitt Romney’s pledge to cut Planned Parenthood funding would deny women mammograms at Planned Parenthood. Read More

Obama Voting is Sex Ad Shows Desperation, Won’t Attract Women Desperate times apparently call for desperate ads. That’s the only way to explain the President’s sorry excuse for a get-out-the-vote video–which has all the class of a rest stop bathroom stall. With help from Lena Dunham, star of HBO’s sleazy Girls, the ad compares voting for Obama with losing your virginity. It’s low brow even for this White House, which seems to think using expletives to describe your opponent is conduct becoming a U.S. President. Read More

Archbishop: Catholics Can’t Vote for Pro-Abortion Candidates “I do not see how a Catholic could, in conscience, vote for an individual expressing him or herself as favoring abortion.” (John Cardinal O’Connor) Performing an abortion is intrinsically evil. Legislators, executives and judges supporting or maintaining the legalization or funding of abortions, and individuals voting for a referendum that legalizes or funds abortion cooperate in an intrinsic evil.

Babies are Crying Out, Will You Vote to Defeat Obama? Maybe they’re getting tired and stressed as they’ve fallen further behind Mitt Romney in national polls, but verbal blunders continue to haunt the president and vice president. And some of them are getting nasty. Barack Obama, interviewed in Rolling Stone magazine, rudely and falsely paraphrased a six year-old girl as having said a vulgar word – one more appropriate to a locker room or back alley than a public utterance of a president.

Three Abortion Workers Quit During 40 Days for Life Campaign When a 40 Days for Life vigil is just getting started, abortion workers first consider you a religious zealot, then a radical. As time goes on, you’re seen as someone who simply has nothing better to do with your time. But toward the end of the campaign, you become a question for them. The stereotypes wear off and the abortion center staffers see you as a human being … and they ask themselves the question, “What good do I really do here?” Read More

FACT CHECK ALERT: Obama Repeats Mammogram Myth on Jay Leno

Susan B. Anthony List: FACT CHECK ALERT -- On Leno, Obama Persists in Falsehood: Planned Parenthood Does NOT Provide Mammograms

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser countered President Obama's false statements to Jay Leno concerning Planned Parenthood's services:

"Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered, profit-driven business, funded by taxpayers who oppose their practices. The President and his allies are using scare tactics with women's health in order to get their vote. President Obama should be exposed for promoting these falsehoods.

"Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion provider -- performing 392 abortions for every individual adoption referral it makes -- and does not provide comprehensive, whole woman's health care, including mammograms. We once again call on President Obama to immediately stop misleading the American people by repeating the falsehood that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. As she has taken time off to campaign for him full time, perhaps Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards could set the President straight."

Planned Parenthood is not a mammogram provider. A recent paper published in First Things pointed out that abortion is 125 to 165 times more profitable than mammography. During fiscal year 2009-2010, Planned Parenthood reported more than one billion dollars in net assets.

The myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms has been repeatedly debunked, most recently by Casey Mattox of Alliance Defending Freedom who pointed out that according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, no Planned Parenthood clinic in the country is authorized to perform mammograms under the federal Mammogram Quality Standards Act.

Planned Parenthood Caught Lying About Its Botched Abortions Live Action has released a new undercover video today showing officials with the Planned Parenthood abortion business lying about how women have been victimized by botched abortions at its centers. Live Action Advocate investigators called Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with recent cases of medical emergencies and botched abortions in 7 different states asking if Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice was safe and if women had ever been hurt at the clinics. Not a single Planned Parenthood abortion clinic acknowledged the recent injuries of women. Read More

Pro-Life Groups Stand by Mourdock After Abortion-Rape Comment Indiana pro-life groups are standing strongly behind pro-life Senate candidate Richard Mourdock after he made comments abortion rape and abortion that pro-abortion activists are using to paint him as an extremist. During a debate Tuesday night with his Democratic opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly, who is opposed by pro-life groups, Mourdock explained why he opposes abortion in the case of rape. Read More

Norma McCorvey of Roe v. Wade: “Don’t Vote for Obama, He Kills Babies” Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, has recorded a new television commercial urging voters to not vote for President Barack Obama. McCorvey, who became pro-life over a decade ago, hopes the commercial will change hearts and minds on abortion. Below is the script for the TV ad: “I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America." Read More

Mourdock and Rape: Should Angelina Jolie’s Daughter Have Been Aborted? Abortion proponents and their friends in the mainstream media are going ballistic over a comment yesterday by Richard Mourdock, a Republican running for senate in Indiana. In explaining his pro-life position during a candidate’s debate, Mourdock said, “Life is a gift from God and I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” Immediately after the debate, Mourdock’s Democrat opponent, Joe Donnelly, tried to construe Mourdock’s remark as some kind of endorsement of rape, as if Mourdock meant that the violent act—rather than the child’s life—was intended by God. Read More

Planned Parenthood Attacks Mourdock But Hides Child Rape The Planned Parenthood abortion business is attacking Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock today over his comments on rape and abortion in last night’s debate. But the abortion business has repeatedly covered up actual or alleged cases of child rape. “Wow. Another extreme comment made about rape by an out-of-touch candidate,” Planned Parenthood said on its Facebook page. “This is the same politician Mitt Romney proudly endorsed this week, and has even said, “We’ve gotta get this guy elected to the US Senate!” Anyone with these kind of dangerous views has NO place in Congress.” Read More

Why Doesn’t Planned Parenthood Do Mammograms? No Money in It President Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and countless supporters have claimed again and again that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. President Obama did so in the second presidential debate, describing the “millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for . . . mammograms.” The problem is the mammogram claim is untrue, as was just cleverly highlighted by “Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day,” a phone campaign that found no Planned Parenthood clinics capable of breast cancer screening. Planned Parenthood has neither the license nor the machines. The most the abortion giant has ever done is refer women to outside mammogram providers, filling the role of the Yellow Pages or Google.

Obama Admin Tries to Stop Hobby Lobby’s HHS Mandate Lawsuit The Obama administration filed legal papers today in an attempt to stop the lawsuit the Christian craft store Hobby Lobby brought against the HHS mandate, which violates the consciences of Christian companies. The Justice Department asked a federal judge to deny Hobby Lobby’s request to block the pro-abortion HHS mandate, which requires companies to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs.

Will October Surprise Show Romney Talking Woman Out of Abortion? Speculation has reached a fever pitch today after the Drudge Report started the rumor mill moving in full swing about a potential October Surprise pro-abortion attorney Gloria Allred reported has in store for Mitt Romney.  Drudge teased the potential October surprised on Friday and the “news” web site Radar Online is reported today that Allred is moving forward with whatever she has planned, in an effort to shake up the presidential race. The move is likely intended to help Obama, who is clearly trailing in polls now to the former governor. Read More

Appeals Court Says Indiana Can’t De-Fund Planned Parenthood The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago has upheld a lower court judge’s ruling that the state of Indiana can’t de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business via the state Medicaid program it runs. The ruling from a three-judge panel indicates Indiana can’t enforce a state law signed by Governor Mitch Daniels disqualifying Planned Parenthood from participating in family planing program because it does abortions. Read More

Obama-Planned Parenthood Team Makes States Fund Planned Parenthood The Obama administration has forced multiple states to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. In two cases, the administration has filed legal papers taking on states in court by siding with the abortion giant in its attempt to overturn de-funding laws. Last week, the Obama administration-Planned Parenthood partnership was successful in defeating the state of Arizona. Today, that partnership won at the appeals court level against the state of Indiana. Read More

Obama’s Next Four Years May be Worse Than the Last Four Thomas Peters of CatholicVote puts the 2012 presidential election in perspective in a new blog post outlining 10 reasons why the next four years under President Barack Obama could be a worse setback for the pro-life cause than his first four. Peters, whose organization endorsed Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan because of their pledge to advance pro-life values in the White House, rightly focuses on the long-term entrenchment of abortion at the Supreme Court level as the number one reason. If Obama is re-elected, it is likely he will have appointed about half or more of the members of the Supreme Court — perhaps cementing unlimited abortions for another 40 years. Read More

Catholic Voters Battle Church Leaders to Hand Out Pro-Life Voter Guides We are receiving reports everyday that it’s hand-to-hand combat out there. Catholics who defend life, marriage, and religious liberty are encountering one obstacle after another in their efforts to educate fellow Catholics about the importance of Nov. 6. Case in point: Some dioceses are insisting that the only voter guides that can be distributed on parish property are the alphabetical issues guides that we discussed last week. This is the issues guide that expressly ignores the instructions issued by the bishops in the “New Introduction to Faithful Citizenship”. Read More

Obama Admin Web Site Refers Pregnant Women to Planned Parenthood Yep, you read that headline correctly. WomensHealth.gov is a “Project of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health.” This federal site has a page with a pretty long title: “Pregnancy > Before you get pregnant: Information for all women > If you are sexually active.” And, near the bottom of the page, there’s a section called “Connect with other organizations.” Most of the organizations are generally well-recognized medical groups – like the American Academy of Family Physicians. But two non-profits make the list as well: March of Dimes and Planned Parenthood. Read More
