The U.S. House voted Wednesday to create a select committee to investigate abortion practices and fetal tissue donation, a move that Democrats say is a politically motivated attack on Planned Parenthood.
Congressional Republicans are pushing legislation that seems designed to punish Planned Parenthood for fictitious crimes.
Based on the evidence provided by states themselves, it is more than a little misleading for the House Judiciary Committee to suggest that newborn children are being murdered by abortion providers with regularity and abandon; it is myth-making and fear-mongering.
The myth of the born-alive fetus has long been a weapon in the pro-life arsenal, one “kept alive” by misleading language, and by efforts to pass laws that further obfuscate and mislead.
Those of us waiting to hear the presidential candidates clarify their stances on abortion, women’s health, equal pay and Supreme Court nominees had a lot to pay attention to tonight.
Bob Schieffer asked Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain "[c]ould either of you ever nominate someone to the Supreme Court who disagrees with you on this issue? Senator McCain?"
Senator John McCain repeated long debunked lies about Sen. Barack Obama’s record on the Illinois Born Alive Protection Act.
Barack Obama and John McCain had a full discussion of sexual and reproductive health issues in the final presidential debate tonight.
The answer to “Who Is Barack Obama?” in a new McCain-Palin ad is “simply false”, according to Factcheck.org.
John McCain may be attempting to tamp down anger at rallies for the Republican presidential ticket, but Sarah Palin continues to stoke her base with inaccuracies on Obama’s position on abortion.
