Forced-Birthers Bow Down To Trump–Again (TWEET)

One of the most nauseating moments of the 2016 presidential cycle was when the religious right remained firmly behind Donald Trump even after the release of the Access Hollywood tape. They tried to convince us that it really didn’t matter that Trump openly boasted that he could degrade women–even “grab ’em by the pussy”‘–because he […]

Priest Equates Aiding Planned Parenthood With Assisting Nazis (AUDIO)

As many of my longtime readers both here at Liberal America and at Daily Kos know, I walked out on the “pro-life” movement in 2011 when I could no longer tolerate its growing lack of respect for basic decency and dignity. A number of events in the last six years have not only confirmed this […]

One Simple Question Ties Abortion Foes In Knots (TWEETS)

As anti-abortion activists seem to get more and more extreme in their tactics, reasoning with them has seemingly become an exercise in frustration.

Pro-Life Politician Caught Red-Handed Telling Mistress To Get An Abortion

Latest Forced-Birther Tactic Isn’t Just Ugly–It’s Illegal (VIDEO)

Opponents of legalized abortion like to say they’re pro-life. But in recent years, they have adopted a number of increasingly aggressive tactics that suggest the term “pro-life” is a misnomer.

Forced-Birthers Willing To Do Anything To Stop Abortion–Including THIS (VIDEOS)

It’s no secret that anti-abortion activists have adopted some increasingly disturbing tactics in recent years. So disturbing, in fact, that the term “pro-life” is a misnomer.

Forced-Birther Okay With Harvey Downing Trees–Babies Are Being Saved! (TWEETS)

Abortion opponents like to say that they want to defend the sanctity of life.

New Research Wrecks GOP Belief That Underlies Anti-Choice Laws (VIDEO)

A new study shows that women who are denied an abortion face heavier consequences to their mental health than those who are able to go through with the procedure.

Kasich Vetoes One Abortion Bill And Signs Another – Is He Really Pro-Life? (VIDEO)

Republican Governor John Kasich vetoed the Ohio abortion bill that would outlaw the procedure after about six weeks.

Texas Gives Anti-Abortion ‘Clinic’ $1.6 Million Based On Pseudo-Scientific Theories (VIDEO)

A Texas anti-abortion organization, The Heidi Group, has a pretty dumb CEO. They give women “advice” about their pregnancies, but they are not a medical organization.
