Despite what pro-choicers say, Europe restricts abortions more than America does.

It’s harder to get an abortion in Europe than in America. I’ve been saying this for years: America’s abortion laws are a lot more radical than Europe’s. A lot of other nations actually restrict or ban abortions after the 12th week or so. But that true fact is ignored by an abortion industry that wants... Read more »

Ted Cruz: Democrats haven't "laid a glove on Amy Barrett"

Nor will they in this, the second day of the hearings into the confirmation of Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court. As if throwing in the towel, Democrats have used their time in the hearings not to plumb the depths of Barrett’s intelligence and commitment to the law, but as free campaign time to deliver a...

Dick Durbin's perverse argument against Amy Barrett

Perverse because Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin’s ignorance about the law, the Supreme Court and the Constitution is astonishing, and dangerous. That ignorance was on full display today when he was making his opening statement in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings into the confirmation of Appellate Court Judge Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court. It has... Read more »

Progressives in orbit

President Donald Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett has launched a fleet of progressives into orbit from where, high above we mere mortals, they see the demise of democracy. The crew aboard the Washington Post orbiter includes E.J. Dionne Jr. who, in all seriousness, nay in a virtual panic, warns that “The Supreme Court struggle is about democracy.” He... Read more »

So, who would Biden name to the Supreme Court?

It seems only fair. The over-wrought Democratic rhetoric demands that President Donald Trump not nominate anyone until “the people” have had a chance to make whom they want to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That would be by electing someone who would appoint a high court nominee who best reflects voter’s views. In line with that, we know from... Read more »

Little Sisters of the Poor to test the real meaning of religious liberty before the Supreme Court

While reading a biography* of James Madison, I came across this quote from the Father of the American Constitution: The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, or...

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 »

What the Kavanaugh hearings and the Van Dyke trial have in common

The death of the time-honored and common law presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Chicago is fearful of riots if police officer Jason Van Dyke is not convicted of murder for his fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald. In Washington, Democrats unleashed a cynical assault on Supreme Court nominee Brett Cavanugh in which the the judge had to prove his... Read more »

Dems, that's the best you got on Judge Kavanaugh?

PARODY After hours and hours of grilling, Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee got down to the nitty gritty, the real dirt on their interrogation of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brent Kavanaugh. A transcript of the hearings follows: Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.): I have here in my hands the secret documents from your time in... Read more »

Another overreaching, factually challenged and confusing Supreme Court abortion case

As the Chicago Tribune reported: The Supreme Court issued its strongest defense of abortion rights in a quarter-century Monday, striking down Texas’ widely replicated rules that sharply reduced abortion clinics in the nation’s second-most-populous state. By a 5-3 vote, the justices rejected the state’s arguments that its 2013 law and follow-up regulations were needed to... Read more »
