Forced-Birth Leader: Even If Roy Moore Was A Perv, Doug Jones Is A Current ‘Moral Degenerate’ (VIDEOS)

By all rights, when Roy Moore was credibly accused of molesting women and pursuing girls young enough to be his daughters, his campaign for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat should have been over. And yet, the Republican ex-state chief justice was not only able to stay in the race, but lost in a squeaker to Democratic […]

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. For example, you may recall that Planned Parenthood clinic director turned forced-birther Abby Johnson danced a jig when wind from Hurricane Harvey knocked a tree down in Austin, cutting off access to […]

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. It’s more accurate to call them “forced-birth.” The strongest evidence to date that these people are more about forced-birth came on Friday, when activists descended […]

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. It’s more accurate to use a term picked up by some of my old friends on Daily Kos–“forced-birth.” For instance, an abortion clinic in my hometown of Charlotte has […]

Charlotte Forced-Birthers Recruit KIDS To Do Their Dirty Work (TWEETS)

More than ten years ago, mainstream America got an introduction to just how fanatical the religious right can be with the release of “Jesus Camp,” a documentary that showed how young kids are turned into little culture warriors. In a number of scenes, the kids were seen taking part in anti-abortion rallies. Easily the most […]

Fundie Hosts Go There, Say God Turned Houston Into A Lake Because Of Abortion And Gays (AUDIO/VIDEO)

These days, one of the sure things when a disaster strikes is that religious right leaders will open their mouths, stick in their feet, and jam them in deep. Hurricane Harvey was no exception. On Monday, for instance, forced-birth activist Abby Johnson danced a jig when the back end of Harvey downed a tree in […]

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. But it has been amply established that, at bottom, the anti-abortion movement has nothing to do with the sanctity of life. For instance, when an Alabama teenager sought and received permission to end her pregnancy after being raped, abortion opponents clutched their […]

An Open Letter To The Forced-Birth Movement–From A Former Anti-Abortion Liberal (VIDEO)

To The “Leadership” Of The “Pro-Life” Movement: For most of the time from around 2004 to 2011, I was one of you. I opposed abortion, except in cases of rape and incest. But recent events have convinced me that all your talk about protecting the sanctity of human life is nothing more than hot air. […]

Alabama Forced-Birthers: 12-Year-Old Rape Victim Wants To Commit ‘Murder’ (VIDEO)

Those who want to ban abortion claim that they want to defend the sanctity of life. But recent moves by abortion opponents prove that claim is a transparent lie. Recently, members of the supposed “mainstream” of the anti-abortion movement have suggested that allowing sexual assault victims to end their pregnancies isn’t an act of basic decency. No, […]

The Most Anti-Choice Federal Bill Ever Is Close To Getting A Vote (AUDIO)

As alarming as the nearly daily outrages coming from Donald Trump have been, much of what has churned out of Capitol Hill is almost as alarming.

The death of Fox News Channel founder Roger Ailes on Thursday revealed beyond any doubt that nothing has changed at the fair and balanced network.

Trump’s Newest Target Is Young Girls, But It’s Not What You Think

Donald Trump is still doing his level best to make life worse for as many people as possible.

JEERS – Ivanka Trump Got A Serious Boo-Job When She Claimed Daddy Was A ‘Champion’ For Women (TWEETS/VIDEO)

If Ivanka Trump views herself as a feminist, then perhaps we need a new definition. Defending Daddy Ivanka recently attended the G20 Women’s Summit in Berlin, Germany. Flanked by actual feminists, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she failed miserably at defending her father. In her defense, President Donald Trump did make campaign promises to support […]

PROOF POSITIVE That The War On Women Is Not ‘All In Their Head’ (INFOGRAPHICS)

“War on women” is a phrase often used in U.S. politics. It describes Republican policies regarding access to reproductive health services, domestic violence against women, rape, and workplace discrimination against women. As a consequence, many Republican describe the idea as “phony” and “absurd:” “I have been to war, and this is not a war.” —Senator Joni […]

RWNJ Evangelist Prays For God To ‘Sweep Away’ Abortion And Pro-Choice Judges (VIDEOS)

For years, the religious right has talked about building a “culture of life” in this country–one in which abortion is a thing of the past. We already know how far they’re willing to go. By standing behind Donald Trump even in the face of his outrageously degrading comments about women, the religious right announced in […]

No matter how you spin it, Donald Trump’s inauguration was a yuuuuge disaster. Need proof?

RWNJ Congressman Rolls Out Most Extreme Attempt To Ban Abortion, Ever (AUDIO)

For the better part of five years, veteran religious right activist Janet Porter has tried to get state legislatures to pass a bill that would all but ban abortions in cases where the fetus’ heartbeat can be detected.
