    Abortion Gravy Train Hits Turkey Week Snag
    November 24, 2020

    When pro-lifers are counting their blessings this Thanksgiving, they can add something else to the list: the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In another win for President Trump's legacy on judges, the full Fifth Circuit gave the green light to three states to defund Planned Parenthood in Medicaid. Texas and Louisiana had been fighting to cut ties with the abortion giant for years -- only to be ... (more)


    Georgia on Everyone's Minds
    November 24, 2020

    The two Georgia Senate seats aren't up for a popular vote, but if they were, a new poll says, America wants the GOP in control. The survey, from Harvard CAPS-Harris, is an interesting barometer of what voters think of the two parties heading into January 5's run-off. Fifty-six percent of the country wants the Senate in Republican hands -- compared to just 44 percent who think the Democrats should ... (more)


    Therapy Bans Harm the Constitution, Not Clients

She reported to the police station in her slippers, she remembers, telling her children she would be right back. She wasn't. After a brutal interrogation at the Chinese precinct, her world went dark. Covered in a black hood, Zumrat Duwat felt the shackles clamp her feet and hands, and she knew: the promise she ... (more)


    Pennsylvania Avenues to Change
    November 23, 2020

    Have cheaters prospered in the 2020 election? Almost half of America says yes (including a third of Democrats!). But there's one thing almost every voter agrees on: getting to the bottom of whatever fraud there is -- and making sure it doesn't happen again. ... (more)


    Sixth Circuit: Down Law Is Not Out
    November 23, 2020

    Planned Parenthood doesn't just believe you should be able to target certain babies for abortion. They're willing to go to court to guarantee it. Fortunately for the "imperfect" children they want to discard, judges for the 6th Circuit aren't quite so eager to end babies' lives just because they aren't "up to society's standards." That's not health care -- that's eugenics. ... (more)
