As I look at the events of the last few days I can't help but see history repeating itself. There was a time when a percentage of Democrats did not favor slavery, as that percentage dropped you had northern Democrats saying while they didn't approve of slavery's expansion they were willing to let it remain … Continue reading Next for Democrats The “Personally Opposed to Antisemitism” Phase

Shocked as many people were when New York passed its recent pro-abortion law (with a handful of other states heading in the same direction), they might not realize that at least one other state - my own New Hampshire - has been the Wild West for abortion for more than twenty years. When then-Governor Jeanne … Continue reading Getting Out of Abortion-Law Quagmire, A Step at a Time
In the wake of Virginia Governor Northam's remarks about how to care for a child who survives an attempted abortion - "The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother” - President Trump invited abortion survivors to the … Continue reading Abortion Survivor: “Don’t Have a Conversation About Us Without Us”
Apparently some things never change: Yes, the West looked the other way during the 1930s, when people were starving. But the West is also looking the other way in 2019, refusing to see the concentration camps in China’s Xinjiang province. These camps have been designed to suppress the Uighurs, a Muslim ethnic minority whose status … Continue reading Communism remains Murderous, Activists don’t care, Mr. McCarrick & Cardinal Farrell, Gosnell Movie on Amazon, 9th Inning Nightmare for 2004 Boston vs 1924 Washington.
It's almost-but-not-quite old news that New York's Governor Cuomo signed radical pro-abortion legislation recently, and celebrated in garish fashion. Much has happened in the two weeks since. Abortion-friendly bills are coming up in state houses in Vermont, New Mexico, Virginia, and Rhode Island. In Washington, Senate and House look at legislation to protect children who … Continue reading N.Y. is Knee-Deep in Abortion; What About Your State?

Here is some dialogue from Alfred Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent, which is set just before World War II began. Mr. Powers [newspaper editor]: How would you like to cover the biggest story in the world today? John Jones: Give … Continue reading Mainstream media’s whiff on Northam yearbook photo shows why we need term limits for political reporters
by baldilocks With the news of the last few days being that Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) dressed up in either blackface or in Klan regalia in a 1984 college yearbook (or maybe he didn’t), it’s necessary to remember that Northam had been in the news earlier in the week for a reason that produced far … Continue reading A Deeper Look at Northam
I had the joyful privilege of going to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life on January 18. It's an inspiring event. It fortifies me for the pro-life work, political and otherwise, that awaits me back home. It also prepares me to move ahead in hope, even when the news dumps items like the following … Continue reading For the Children, If They Make It Out of the Womb…
Pro-lifers nationwide observe the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision every January, no matter who's in the White House and no matter which party holds a majority in Congress. Peaceful affirmation of the right to life is always in season. The next national March for Life in Washington will be Friday, January … Continue reading Plan Now for January’s March for Life
I arrive at DTG Blog sheepishly, behind schedule, having been entirely too wrapped up in my own state's election (424 legislative seats, for starters). As I look at results past the state line, I see that voters in West Virginia and Alabama passed pro-life ballot measures that are essential but shouldn't have been needed. The … Continue reading Downballot, Some Life-Issue News
On Saturday I attended the Annual NH Carenet Dinner fundraiser celebrating another year of saving babies and helping pregnant women.

It's always nice to visit a state where republicans are not afraid to be publicly pro-life I … Continue reading Voices of Election 2018 Dr. Jim Kelly NH 27
by baldilocks Every now and then, the Left tells you what its ultimate goal is. I've said for some time that Leftism's success requires the earth's rapid depopulation and that nearly all the Left's advocacy is geared toward that end: radical feminism -- which tends to alienate men and women from each other; homosexual and … Continue reading Gates Dreams of an African-less Africa
It's no secret that the Left's by-any-means-necessary (a.k.a unhinged-take-no-prisoners-search-and-destroy) opposition to now-Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation is their pathological fear that he will provide the 5th vote on the SCOTUS to overturn the abominable (and abominably-reasoned) Roe v. Wade decision. It may very well be that this subject falls within the 7% of cases on which Justice Kavanaugh … Continue reading The Financial Motivation Behind the Kavanaugh Opposition
Life goes on at the Supreme Court, vacancy or no. Last Monday, on the opening day of the term, the Court announced that it will not hear a challenge to a 2014 Tennessee ballot measure, Amendment 1, which stated "nothing in this [state] Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion." Or, if you prefer, … Continue reading A Quiet Victory at the U.S. Supreme Court
