Yet another Religious Right group is citing Martin Luther King Jr., who championed reproductive rights and Planned Parenthood, in a push to criminalize abortion. The Radiance Foundation, relying on discredited claims that Planned Parenthood is pursuing black genocide, introduces its "The Dream Is Dead" advertising campaign by claiming that banning abortion will offer women "real choices" and restore liberty. In 1963 when Martin Luther King Jr. shared his dream with the nation, he never envisioned an America where ”reproductive justice” would end 56 million... MORE

Religious Right activists often claim that they will never be silent about “Nazi” abortion rights …that is, unless those rights exist in Israel. We noted last week that Israel’s decision to expand public funding for abortion coverage was met with crickets from many American anti-choice groups that also embrace Christian Zionism and accuse President Obama of being unfriendly to Israel. These organizations, of course, would have erupted with rage if the Obama administration had even contemplated implementing a similar policy. In a column today, a writer at the... MORE

The American Principles Project, the Religious Right group that helped torpedo Mary Cheney’s short-lived Senate bid in Wyoming, claims that Republicans can win young and women voters if they campaigned more aggressively on their party platform’s ultraconservative positions on abortion rights and LGBT equality. The organization issued a report [PDF] last fall which criticizes Republican candidates like Mitt Romney for trying to play down or moderate the GOP’s stances on such social issues. APP’s Maggie Gallagher -- formerly of the National Organization for Marriage... MORE

Just two days after Israel’s cabinet approved a new policy extending government abortion subsidies to all women ages 20-33, the staunchly anti-choice Liberty Counsel released an alert entitled, “Stand With Israel Now,” complete with a photograph of Benjamin Netanyahu with Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver. “There has never been a more critical time for you to show your support to Israel and its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu! Become a Liberty Ambassador to Israel and have your faith strengthened and your resolve fortified to stand for Israel,” the group writes... MORE

Anti-choice activist Jill Stanek says she won’t be mourning the death of Nelson Mandela because, she claims, the late leader’s pro-choice record means he “engaged in mass genocide of his own innocent people” and “has the blood of preborn children on his hands.” Even the Pope and Cardinal Dolan have been lauding South African leader Nelson Mandela following his death earlier this week of natural causes at age 95. But I can’t. Nelson Mandela has the blood of preborn children on his hands… lots of them. … I cannot get past... MORE

Operation Rescue took a critical role in the campaign to pass a municipal 20-week abortion ban with nationwide implications in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which was defeated yesterday by a ten-point margin. Now, the extremist anti-choice group says it is looking “forward to another try” at banning later-term abortions in the city. Operation Rescue spokeswoman Cheryl Sullenger told LifeSiteNews that the group will continue its efforts to enact the Albuquerque ban. She even tried to explain away the measure’s decisive defeat by arguing that voters were confused by the ballot... MORE
Robison: Gay Marriage & Abortion Rights Part Of A 'Furious Flood Of Evil Threatening To Destroy Our Nation'

Back in 1980, televangelist James Robison said he was “sick and tired of hearing about all of the radicals, and the perverts, and the liberals, and the leftists, and the communists coming out of the closet; it’s time for God’s people to come out of the closet, out of the churches and change America.” In a commentary posted on his blog last week, Robison repeated the refrain: “While so many others are coming out of the closet in defense of their non-biblical practices, it is time for pastors, priests and all true believers to come out of the closet and stand for...
