By Carol Tobias, President Last night, in his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Donald Trump paid tribute to Carryn Owens, the widow of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who was recently killed on duty in the Middle East. Mrs. Owens received a two-minute-long, standing ovation to recognize her husband’s sacrifice, as well …Continue reading "The War on Women Continues (For Now)"
By Dave Andrusko As we approach the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I would like to dig deeper into a post I wrote about “The Abortion Stereotype,” a commentary written by Razib Khanjan that appeared in the New York Times. There is very little in what Mr. Rhanjan had to say that would surprise …Continue reading "Debunking the stereotypes about abortion"
By Dave Andrusko It’s kind of customary for the party out of power—in this case Democrats who no longer control the Senate and have the smallest number in the House in ages—to be the “party of ideas.” This can, of course, take the form of mere obstructionism but it can also be a time …Continue reading "No retreat necessary: Democrats promise to hold on to “War on Women”"

You can read the entire 34-page edition at www.nrlc.org/uploads/NRLNews/NRLNewsNov2014.pdf For years now, the country has been inundated with rhetoric about the so-called “war on women,” an …Continue reading "Is it open season on Pro-Life Women?"
By Carol Tobias, President Candidates such as out-going Colorado Senator Mark Udall and Iowa Senator-wanna-be-but-defeated Iowa Rep. Bruce Braley, along with other Democratic candidates, ran campaigns based on an extremist pro-abortion position. They were absolutely convinced that the American public would vote for candidates who say it’s okay to kill helpless, innocent unborn babies …Continue reading "Young or old only pro-abortion women count as “pro-woman”"
By Dave Andrusko I know, I know, we’ve already talked twice today about how the War on Women flamed out, ran out of petro –take your pick of metaphors. But this gigantic charade—produced by, directed by, and starring pro-abortion Democrats—is not going to go away easily. Too many interest groups (aka EMILY’s List, NARAL, …Continue reading "Pro-abortion lament: Women win but “not women’s issues”"
By Dave Andrusko A few thoughts on the “war on women,” as the last post of the day. When even CNN starts its story today with “The so-called war on women that Democrats love to talk about on the campaign trail may be losing some of its luster,” you know the preposterous idea is …Continue reading "Bogus ‘War on Women’ running on fumes"
Pro-abortion political consultants are pulling their hair out! Their script has gone off the rails! You’ll remember that in the 2012 elections, some pro-abortion candidates ran on a campaign theme that claimed their opponents were conducting what they called a “War on Women.” The media lapped it up and dishonest as it was, the …Continue reading "Hillary Clinton and the War on (Unborn) Women"
By Marie Smith, Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues (PNCI) Thursday marked the 34th anniversary of the enforcement of China’s brutal One-Child Policy, a policy which results in the loss of millions of unborn children and inflicts horrific abuse upon women. The cruel policy – which makes siblings illegal – has been implemented through coercion …Continue reading "Remembering the War on Women and Girls in China"
By Dave Andrusko “[Saying] ‘Republicans are waging a war on women’ actually doesn’t test very well,” said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake. “Women find it divisive, political—they don’t like it.” — From an article in Thursday’s National Journal, “Why Democrats are Ditching the ‘War on Women,’” by Emily Schultheis. Really? Let’s see. The subhead to …Continue reading "Are Democrats really throwing the “War on Women” cliché overboard?"
Editor’s note. This appears on the webpage of Right to Life of Michigan, NRLC’s state affiliate. So begins the election year drill with an endless parade of negative political ads, divisive name-calling schemes and, of course, the blame game. Election year gimmicks seem to be out of control. Enter the accusation that those who …Continue reading "Wrongly Accused: Seeing through ‘War on Women’ rhetoric in order to address the real issues facing women today"
One of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated on the American electorate is the accusation, fabricated in the 2012 elections, that pro-lifers have somehow conducted a “war on women.” There are exaggerations and there are lies. This one’s a lie. Pro-lifers, research shows, have saved more than nine million lives through pro-life legislation, education, and …Continue reading "War(s) on Women"
