We got news coverage on Chicago’s WGN TV News and local CBS TV News! More news coverage is likely to follow.
Overcoming Pro-choice Protesters
There was a pro-choice protest of the march, but pro-life marchers FAR outnumbered them! The march officially started at 2 pm, but the protesters scheduled their protest to start at 1 pm to deceptively make …
Last night the U.S. House of Representatives passed the federal Conscience Protection Act (CPA) by a vote of 245-182. This vital legislation will help protect health care providers from being forced to pay for or participate in abortions, and allow victims of discrimination a “right of action” to defend their rights in court.

Blue, blue California is not just an entity unto itself. As many have opined, as goes California, so goes the nation.
In their arrogance–or is it “pride”–California’s Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) has defied “the Hyde/Weldon amendments approved by the U.S. Congresses and leaders of both parties every year since 2004 by mandating “coverage of all elective abortions in all health plans under its jurisdiction.”
The Hyde Amendment (original amendment passed 9/30/76) “is a legislative provision barring the use of certain federal funds to pay for abortion unless the pregnancy arises from incest, rape, or to save the life …
Responding to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month legalizing same-sex marriage, U.S. Representative Raul Labrador (R-ID) has introduced the First Amendment Defense Act (H. R. 2802).
H.R. 2802 protects religious freedom by prohibiting the federal government from punishing churches, charities or private schools for actions in opposition to same-sex marriage.

“The people of the 10th District sent me to Congress to advance solutions, not sound bites, to the problems we face. Among the issues that I believe congress must urgently address are the rising premiums and deductibles
Every year in America, more than 18,000 perfectly healthy babies – developed enough to feel pain and, in many cases, survive outside the womb – are brutally killed in their mother’s wombs.
Can you imagine the public outrage if 18,000 babies died every year from faulty baby formula or substandard infant car seats? Liability lawsuits would flood the court systems and manufacturing companies would shutdown in bankruptcy and disgrace.
These particular 18,000 babies have been growing for 20 weeks or more in their mother’s bodies.
“These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but …
