- 1. Members of the Freedom Caucus Speak Out about the AHCA's Bait and Switch
When the House of Representatives, mostly led by members of The Freedom Caucus, recently refused to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA), it seemed like a treasonous debacle to the American people. Even President Trump expressed his anger. Several Pro-Life groups supported the AHCA, because it would have defunded Planned Parenthood.
But, what the American people didn't know was that the American Health Care Act would not have accomplished its primary mission and promise: Repeal and Replace ObamaCare.
The American Health Care Act was a kludge of a health-care policy. Described as a way to simultaneously repeal key elements of the Affordable Care Act and replace them with market-oriented reforms, the bill in its final form managed to do little of either. Freedom Caucus members were particularly concerned about the willingness of House leaders to leave the vast majority of Obamacare’s regulations on the books — after Republicans spent seven years promising that the party would “repeal and replace Obamacare.” Even the rationale that the AHCA would be better than nothing was hard to justify; it probably would have further destabilized the individual market, while millions fewer would have been insured. See It's Wrong for Trump to Blame Conservatives.
Even as Obamacare continues funding Planned Parenthood, the foundation supporting abortion is weakening through other means. Since the AHCA's defeat, President Trump has taken action to defund a UN agency that supports forced abortion. Also on March 31, Congress voted to "restore the ability of states to stop one stream of our tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood and redirect it to community health centers that provide comprehensive primary and preventive health care.” See Major Victories for Life and Bill Passes to allow states to redirect funds away from Abortion Clinics.
And, on April 7, 2017, Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards tweeted that Gorsuch's confirmation is "the worst" because Gorsuch has written that "the intentional taking of human life by private persons is ALWAYS wrong." See Why Justice Gorsuch will have an immediate (and big) impact on the Supreme Court.
Hear what several members of Congress, including the House Freedom Caucus, have to say about the disastrous flaws in the AHCA, and why they must be corrected.Click here to read more

Congratulations on winning the presidency! After eight years of the most pro-abortion presidency in U.S. history, I am thrilled that the highest office of the land will now be used to defend the right to life of all U.S. citizens - including the innocent unborn. As such, I encourage you to follow through on the pro-life promises that you made during the campaign without delay. I also want you to know that you will have my support for any and all pro-life initiatives that you take as president, particularly when the going gets tough and you face opposition.

- 5. Leonard Cohen, Rest In Peace
As written recently by Jonathon Van Maren, "For all his many faults, Cohen is nothing if not unblinking. His work shows a clear and progressively growing disillusionment with our throwaway culture’s crude approach to everything good and beautiful, and his words often smolder with contempt.
"In Diamonds in the Mine, for example, he mourned the transformative effect of the Sexual Revolution on people:
Ah, there is no comfort in the covens of the witch,
some very clever doctor went and sterilized the bitch,
and the only man of energy, yes the revolution's pride,
he trained a hundred women just to kill an unborn child.
"Such lines have attracted the ire of some of his feminist fans, who began to identify an anti-abortion ethic throughout his work. One pointed to Cohen’s The Story of Isaac, where he condemns those who 'stand above them now, your hatchets blunt and bloody':Click here to read more

- 7. Sing a Little Louder
“Rescue those being led away to death.” Proverbs 24:11.
There are some things that time does not erase.
Years from now will we be like those who tried to explain their apathy while millions of unborn children were led away to slaughter? Will we just sing a little louder or will we raise our voices to defend those who have no voice?
"As the trial balloons and interviews for vice presidential nominations were underway in the summer, every name mentioned to partner with Clinton was devoutly pro-abortion. Every name under consideration by Trump had solid pro-life credentials." Charmaine Yoest in "A Life or Death Decision"

- 9. You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life
In the 3rd and final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked why she is against a ban on late-term partial birth abortions. In light of her longstanding association with Planned Parenthood and the abortion business, her answer reveals an astonishing ignorance about the actual process involved in a late term abortion, or she's outright lying.
In this brief segment Ms. Clinton states "I've met with women who at the end of their pregnancy get the worst news that one could get, that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy. So, you can regulate if you are doing so with the life and the health of the mother taken into account.”
Here’s the reality. A late term abortion procedure takes 24-72 hours, just to dilate the cervix enough to dismember and remove the baby. A woman whose life is at risk would be dead before the abortion could be completed.
On the other hand, a 1-hour emergency C-Section would most likely save the mother's and her baby's lives.
In the following video, Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has performed over 1200 abortions, explains why “You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life.” He is now Pro-Life.Click here to read more
- 10. Gilbert Watch Supports Warren Petersen for Arizona Senate
It has never been more important than now to elect solid conservatives with a voting record that backs up their rhetoric. So it is with Warren Petersen, who is running for Arizona Senate in LD12. As a state representative, he stood up for families and the unborn, for local support and control of education, and for the independent business person. His votes are testimony to his fight against overbearing regulations that hurt businesses and our economy. He has repeatedly protected our Second Amendment rights. Rep. Petersen is very knowledgeable about complex issues, and he knows how to protect the hard-working taxpayer from the big spenders at the Capitol.Click here to read more
