Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, sent a Mother’s Day greeting via Twitter on Sunday.
Richards’ tweet came as a recent study found that abortion is the most consequential issue determining the socioeconomic and demographic composition of the United States.
Professor James Studnicki and his colleagues at the University of North Carolina found that induced abortions account for more years of potential life lost than all other causes of death combined, and the black abortion rate and rate of years of life lost to abortion are more than three times that of whites.

In bold, high definition, if you slowed the frame down enough, you could see the spray of spittle flying across the broadcast table at his fellow co-hosts on-the-air.Bob Beckel, a prominent democrat consultant, and co-host of The Five on Fox News was turning beat red. "Who cares?" He offered as his bottom line as to whether the White House covered up Benghazi or not. White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, earlier that day got quite smarmy and dismissive when he claimed the incidents of 9.11.12 (to which he labeled current interest in as a "conspiracy theory") "happened a long time ago." Adam Schiff, a democratic Congressman, called the effort to set up a select committee to look into the matter, "a colossal waste of time." Nancy Pelosi, the democratic leader in the House, referred to the emails that did establish a White House cover-up as, "Diversion, subterfufge, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Why aren't we talking about something else?" What is clear, as demonstrated above, is that from the White House, to congressional leaders, to the pundit chattering class--democrats have circled the wagons. They do so to attempt to force the other political party, the media, and the American people themselves to move on, and put any further inquiry into the matter out of consideration. They also make a massive implication in doing so. Any further investigation going forward will be cast by them as a purely politically stunted witch-hunt that can not be trusted. (Almost exclusively for the reason that they imply, that Democrats have moved on hence so should the nation.) On Friday I found that posture and premise to be rather astounding.

A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court Monday deemed that prayers said before town meetings are not in violation of the Constitution, Reuters reports.
In a Rochester, New York suburb, a Jewish resident and an atheist resident filed a suit against the town of Greece stating they were made "uncomfortable" by town officials who "overwhelmingly" picked Christian members of the public to recite prayers before meetings, states the report. Despite this revelation, however, the town's policy is to not single out one religion over another.The court maintained that prayer is fundamental and historical to America and in no way violates the First Amendment, even if it is exclusively one religion. The tight 5-4 decision indicates the conservative/liberal fault line within the court on the issue. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Samuel Alito Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas joined the court's majority opinion Justice Anthony Kennedy in favor of the Christian prayers. Kennedy wrote:
The town of Greece does not violate the First Amendment by opening its meetings with prayer that comports with our tradition and does not coerce participation by nonadherents. So long as the town maintains a policy of nondiscrimination, the Constitution does not require it to search beyond its borders for non-Christian prayer givers in an effort to achieve religious balancing...That nearly all of the congregations in town turned out to be Christian does not reflect an aversion or bias on the part of town.
These ceremonial prayers strive for the idea that people of many faiths may be united in a community of tolerance and devotion. Our tradition assumes that adult citizens, firm in their own beliefs, can tolerate and perhaps appreciate a ceremonial prayer delivered by a person of a different faith.Read full story on www.truthrevolt.org
The first openly gay Episcopal bishop, who became a symbol for gay rights far beyond the church while deeply dividing the world’s Anglicans, plans to divorce his husband.
Bishop Gene Robinson has never been fully accepted within the more than 70 million-member Anglican Communion, which is rooted in the Church of England and represented in the United States by the Episcopal Church.
Robinson announced the end of his marriage to Mark Andrew in an email sent to the Diocese of New Hampshire, where he served for nine years before retiring in 2012.
OK, first the pink elephant in the room. All of you “bigoted,” “homophobic,” “anti-gay” opponents of “marriage equality” who happen to live in “marriage reality,” please join me as we set aside, for the moment, the inescapable cognitive dissonance associated with the Huxleyan turn of phrase: “plans to divorce his husband.”
