Progressives Seek to Rush Human Slaughter Bill Through House
With a cringe-worthy, faux-earnest expression, State Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) explained at Thursday’s press conference to promote her radical abortion bill the meaning of the necklace she prominently wore—a necklace adorned with a coat hanger: My necklace is a little gold wire hanger…. It’s a reminder of what can happen in a post-Roe world. Her little gold coat hanger symbolizes the illegal abortions she fears will kill women if they are prohibited from legally offing their offspring. So, let’s examine...

Letter Exposes Bigoted, Anti-Liberty and Anti-Life Attitudes of Leftists
How does opposition to human slaughter—including the slaughter of about 440,000 female humans annually—constitute "contempt and misogynistic views toward women"? And are the 36% of women who oppose abortion in "all or most cases" as revealed in a Pew Forum poll guilty of contempt for women and misogyny? Frank asked why "so many white Republican male legislators willfully rule that women carry a fetus to full term in cases of rape or incest." That's an easy-peasy question to answer...

Some Leftist Thoughts for Leftists About Roe v. Wade
Staci Fox, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia said this about the Alabama ban on human slaughter: “[T]hese laws are unconstitutional and they [pro-life advocates] don’t care.” It’s remarkable that the Founding Fathers managed to make clear to “progressives” that women have a constitutional right to have their offspring offed without ever uttering a single word about it in the U.S. Constitution.

Psychologist Warns Lawmakers Against Marijuana Legalization
“Any change in drug policy should reduce drug use, not increase it,” states Dr. Aaron Weiner, licensed clinical psychologist and Director of Addiction Services at Linden Oaks Behavioral Health in Naperville. Dr. Weiner succinctly details the facts that refute Illinois politicians’ erroneous claims that legal and readily available, high THC concentration marijuana would be “positive for health and community restoration.” He also exposes the real motivation behind liberal legislators’ push for highly addictive, legal weed in Illinois.
