Tomi Lahren’s “Evolution” on Abortion Sparks Suspension

Tomi Lahren on The View

After she espoused pro-choice beliefs on The View last week, The Blaze commentator and professionally aggrieved white person Tomi Lahren found herself at odds with her conservative co-workers. Though Glenn Beck argued he would never suppress an employee’s opinions on abortion even if they contradict his own, Lahren’s portrayal of pro-choice conservatives as hypocrites took it a step too far. The remarks that sparked fury across […]

The Blaze is Helping to Spread Lies about Planned Parenthood

On Wednesday, Brandon Morse at The Blaze (Glenn Beck’s website) published a piece featuring a supposed email from a woman who visited Planned Parenthood for adoption counseling but was pressured into considering abortion instead.

Catholic Healthcare Forgets Mary Had a Choice

health care is a human right

It is well documented that healthcare disparity exists among minorities and the poor. While the threats to defund Planned Parenthood and to repeal the Affordable Care Act are increasing, we cannot lose focus on states’ restrictive abortion laws and hospital mergers. A common thread seems to be to end and restrict reproductive healthcare. This includes fertility treatments, healthcare screenings, birth […]

Trump anti-LGBTQ executive order

After news leaked earlier this week the Trump administration was assembling an anti-LGBTQ executive order to bridge the gap until the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) was passed, the Trump administration denied they were targeting the LGBTQ community and went so far as to announce they would retain President Obama’s executive order protecting LGBTQ federal workers.

SCOTUS Nominee Neil Gorsuch is a Danger to LGBTQ Rights

Neil Gorsuch

While many in the mainstream media are painting Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch as a moderate, sensible choice for the high court, the truth as demonstrated by his on-the-record statements and legal decisions paint a different picture. Gorsuch – who currently serves as a federal appellate judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit – prides himself on being a Constitutional originalist and supporter of textualism. That in […]

Stop Shaming Melania Trump

Melania Trump

The continued harsh criticism of Melania Trump is disturbing. During the campaign, social media and newspapers inundated the world with her nude photos and “exclusive” movie stills. As the Obamas prepared to leave office, the photos from Melania’s past were shared more frequently, often comparing her semi-nude photos side-by-side with photos of Michelle. Since becoming First Lady, the insults appear to […]

You’ve Been Warned: Mike Pence’s Version of ‘Truth’

Mike Pence

Pence claims he values truth, yet he leaves out quite a bit. I liken it to this example from my own life. A few years ago a friend’s son was away at college. Sadly the son’s beloved dog, Tippy, died. His father called him at college and said “Tippy didn’t wake up this morning.”THIS WAS A TRUE STATEMENT. When the […]

Welcome to the Resistance

Resistance

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to speak to a “Women’s Rally for Change,” along with the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood and the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor. The purpose was to discuss how to resist the coming assault on women and minorities, and to answer the increasingly common–and increasingly urgent– question: what can I do? What […]
