By Dave Andrusko We’re told by Teen Vogue that to mark the 44th anniversary of the “momentous” 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the magazine “is sharing the stories of real women who have chosen to have an abortion in their lives.” Today Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, tells the story of her …Continue reading "NARAL President tells her carefully crafted abortion “story” to Teen Vogue"
By Dave Andrusko We have written several times about Cecile Richards’ decision to at long last talk about her abortion. I argued that the likely explanation was she was flushed out by militants so radical Richards was afraid of being dubbed a “moderate.” By now it’s routine for Richards to expound on her abortion, although …Continue reading "PPFA’s Richards and NARAL’s Hogue tout Hillary Clinton’s absolute commitment to abortion"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. We are reposting this story from last February in conjunction with a story about Hogue’s speech to the Democratic National Convention we’re posting today. They nicely complement one another, giving a fuller context to her extraordinary convention remarks. What exactly do you think NARAL president Ilyse Hogue means when she …Continue reading "NARAL President tells her “Abortion Story”"
By Dave Andrusko In order to understand the incredibly self-serving statement issued by Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, in response to the guilty verdicts handed down against abortionist Kermit Gosnell, you have to remember that the Abortion Establishment is trying desperately to turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse. One of theirs—Kermit …Continue reading "Part Three: Gosnell Found Guilty of three-counts of first-degree murder, one count of involuntary Manslaughter; sentencing phase begins next week"
By Jeffrey Meyer It’s amazing how within a single one-hour television program, the same host can provide balanced reporting on one story but provide completely one-sided coverage of another. For once on the issue of gun control, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts provided a balanced perspective of the issue at hand. The same unfortunately cannot be said …Continue reading "MSNBC’s Roberts: Does Requiring Abortionists to Have Hospital Privileges Make Abortion More Dangerous for Patients?"
By Dave Andrusko By now everyone knows the Abortion Establishment is not-so-quietly debating which direction (or directions) to take. (We’ve written about their public disputes numerous times, including http://nrlc.cc/VBnGJN, http://nrlc.cc/WftyW9, and http://nrlc.cc/VBnRoh.) Two of the principle players are NARAL Pro-Choice America (which just selected a new president when the old one said it was time …Continue reading "The New Republic’s gushing profile of NARAL’s new leader"
By Rachel Bohannon, Texas Right to Life With states passing more Pro-Life legislation than ever before, anti-Life activists have been left scrambling to come up with ever more euphemistic and rosy descriptions of “choice” to entice Americans back to the dark side.We’ve heard abortion called “reproductive freedom” and even “reproductive justice” for decades, but now …Continue reading "New NARAL president says abortion is like a wish-granting genie"
By Lauren Enriquez “There are so many of them, and they are so young.” — Nancy Keenan, in a 2010 interview with Newsweek magazine. NARAL Pro-Choice America’s outgoing president, Nancy Keenan, aptly summarized the abortion movement’s greatest fear: millennials are much more passionate about life than they are about abortion. Recognizing the dire need for …Continue reading "Meet abortion backer Ilyse Hogue, NARAL’s incoming president"
By Dave Andrusko Take a guess. Who said this last night and to whom? “I couldn’t be prouder of the work each of you is doing to make this world a fairer and more just place for all Americans. And I look forward to continuing that work with you in the years ahead.” Just guessing …Continue reading "Obama praises his pro-abortion friends in video tribute"
By Dave Andrusko I don’t know much about Nancy Keenan’s successor as president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, pretty much what I read in the stories that came out this afternoon. But the roster of jobs and positions Ilyse Hogue has held pretty much tell you she comes not from the Left, but from the far—and …Continue reading "Ilyse Hogue to replace Nancy Keenan as President of NARAL"
