Well, finally some good news out of Washington, D.C. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is going to retire in 2017. The bad news is that he’ll still be causing trouble in the Senate for the next 22 months.

Democrats are holding up passage of the Victims of Trafficking Act because it doesn’t help fund abortion on demand. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he won’t bring up the Loretta Lynch confirmation hearing as long as they continue to filibuster passage of this sex trafficking bill. Lynch is pro-abortion and is slated to replace Attorney General Eric Holder.
Senators Lankford, Cruz Introduce Resolutions To Protect Religious Freedom Of Washington D.C. OrganizationsMar 19th, 2015 | By fyork
On Wednesday Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced two resolutions to overturn recently enacted D.C. Council legislation that undermines religious freedom. In January, the District enacted the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014, which could require employers to provide health plans that cover abortion services, and the Human Rights Amendment Act of 2014, which would force religious schools to support activities that violate the tenets of their faith.
In January, my colleagues and I in the House took a decisive stand to protect the unborn by passing H.R.7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015. This needed legislation ensures that abortions are not funded with taxpayer dollars and institutes stringent reporting requirements on insurance companies, forcing them to fully disclose information regarding abortion coverage in each plan.
“The terms ‘human person’ and ‘human being’ include each and every member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being.”
The pro-abortion Democrats in Congress are now offering the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which would ban a whole range of pro-life bills being pushed by social conservatives like Congressman Duncan. Democrats want no restrictions whatsoever on the killing of unborn babies – even to the point of not wanting pregnant mothers to see their child in the womb through an ultrasound.
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) appeared on MSNBC yesterday to discuss pro-family legislation aimed at banning abortions after 20 weeks. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was to have been voted on yesterday, but was pulled at the last minute.
Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) is the sponsor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will be voted on by the House this Thursday – on the 42nd anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision. Franks’ bill protects unborn children after 20 weeks when they can feel pain during an abortion. The U.S. is one of only seven nations that permits elective abortions after 20 weeks.
The National Abortion Rights Action League has just launched a vicious smear campaign against Republican women like Joni Ernst who are pro-life and pro-family. NARAL’s attack ads are also aimed at vilifying the Susan B. Anthony List, which is a political action committee that supports pro-life women candidates. NARAL has purchased a five-figure ad buy in Iowa to defeat Joni Ernst from her Senate race against liberal Congressman Bruce Braley.
GING-PAC has been encouraged by some in Washington, D.C. to endorse the candidacy of Micah Edmond for the 8th Congressional District seat in Virginia. We will not be doing so.
After studying Edmond’s web site statements about the issues he is concerned about, we do not believe he is sufficiently concerned about the sanctity of human life or about the dangers that same-sex unions pose to the existence of the traditional family or of religious freedom.
