Pretty much…

by Susan Olsen August 24, 2015

“The progressive philosophy that the Democratic Party has come to embrace now has its roots less in the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of individual happiness and more in the tenets of race and class identity, equal outcomes, and an expanding welfare state.” – Scott Powell

This ought to end the debate from the left on when life begins because, let’s face it–there is no 20 weeks, nor 40 weeks, nor 2,080 weeks, nor any weeks at all without conception. We are all a product of conception. With that…from today’s Union Leader… An outside spokesperson hired by Planned Parenthood said last […]

by Susan Olsen July 5, 2015

“One of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals must support tactical lying, or lying on principle.
