Can your Christian faith be reconciled with your support of Trump?

Millions of Christians apparently have, but here are observations from a conservative person of faith  who is deeply troubled by President Donald Trump’s trashing of Christian values. David French, a senior editor of The Dispatch recently asked the same question in his essay, Will Somebody Please Hate My Enemies for Me? Donald Trump is making it even harder for... Read more »

Say what? Race relations have improved under Trump?

And  more. A new Gallup poll finds: As Trump enters his re-election year, Americans are more positive on eight key issues than they were just before he took office in January 2017. Gallup records double-digit increases in public satisfaction with the nation’s economy, security from terrorism, military strength and the state of race relations. Satisfaction... Read more »

The Supreme Court will not "gut" Roe v. Wade

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court is considering another abortion case, the immoderate defenders of “the right to choose” are issuing their usual frightful warnings that have little or no basis in fact. Chief among them is the rock solid prediction that the Supreme Court will “gut” Roe v. Wade, its 1973 decision that was the first of... Read more »

Pro-choicers shade the truth about public acceptance of abortion

Once again, radical pro-choice groups are changing their public relations strategy because they fear that their tired pro-abortion message isn’t playing well with the public. As they have before, they want to distance themselves from their rigid pro-abortion stance in which any abortion at any time for any reason must be legal. This time they’re trying to persuade the...

Illinois' regressive Reproductive Health Act eviscerates human rights

Progressives now on “the wrong side of history.” “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.”–Illinois’ newly enacted Reproductive Health Act. Never, to my knowledge has a state passed a law denying a person any and all rights. America’s history is marked by a steady expansion of... Read more »

Illinois poised to become America's most radical pro-abortion state

UPDATE: Illinois House passes the extreme abortion bill described below. EARLIER VERSION: The Illinois Legislature is moving toward passage of a bill that would surpass the extreme and controversial pro-choice laws in states like New York and Virginia. While pro-choice propagandists are focusing on states that are passing more restrictive abortion requirements, New York, Virginia and... Read more »

2 Illinois abortion bills are wildly extreme

It takes guts, I’ll say that for sponsors of two bills in the Illinois Legislature that go so far beyond what the public wants that they’re beyond extreme. As this fine op-ed in today’s Chicago Tribune notes: According to a Gallup poll released in June 2018, only 28 percent of people support abortion in the... Read more »

Illinois liberals hope to gut Roe v. Wade

It is a betrayal of everything that liberals have stood for. Liberals themselves will be astonished to read this, but they only need to read Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion, to  understand why the “Reproductive Health Act” (Introduced as HB2495 in the Illinois Legislature) would fatally wound the decision’s protections of the...

Illinois Democrats introduce unpopular abortion expansion bill

Illinois Democrats will argue that their legislation to “expand” abortion “rights” merely reflects the popular sentiment to “protect women’s health.” But the radical pair of newly introduced bills is popular only with hard-line advocates who favor an abortion not just up to the moment of birth, but also as late as when the baby has entered...

Some Dems: Protect kids at border, but not newborns

You might say the inverse about some Republicans: Protect newborns but not kids at the border. I thought of that when watching President Trump’s state of the union speech last night. He announced that he would ask “Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s... Read more »
