Rubio: Defund Obamacare, fund rest of gov’t; any shutdown is on Obama

72 Hours Inside Mississippi’s Lone Abortion Clinic

    ABC (includes video): Anti-abortion protestors show up outside of the last surviving abortion clinic in Mississippi, praying and pleading with women not to go inside. They are certain that what takes place there is morally wrong and that God stands with them. But on the other side of a high fence surrounding the bubble-gum-pink-colored clinic, the staff too believes they have God on their side. They blast music from large boom boxes to drown out the protestors’ pleas of “don’t kill your baby.”

Philadelphia: Judge Nixes Same-Sex Couple’s Loss of Consortium Claim

    Gina Passarella at Legal Intelligencer (registration required): A Philadelphia judge has thrown out the loss of consortium claims raised by a same-sex couple in a medical malpractice case against Temple University Health System . . . The judge’s one-page order in Wolf v. Associates of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery . . . Since plaintiffs herein were not married at any relevant time, and a marriage between persons of the same sex is not recognized in Pennsylvania, Tammy Wolf’s loss of consortium claim must be dismissed with prejudice as noncognizable under Pennsylvania law,” Temple Health said in its filing.

Global Democracy Promotion Act not democratic | Alliance Defending Freedom

    “Democracy affirms that every innocent life deserves to be protected. We call upon Congress and the Obama administration to show true respect for democracy by putting a halt to its ceaseless efforts to impose on its radical agenda to life-affirming, sovereign nations. This bill’s claim to “promote democracy” rings hollow when U.S.-funded international aid is being used to export abortion on demand and the homosexual agenda to unwilling countries around the globe.”

Cold Canadian Front: Threats to religious liberty in Canada show what may be in store for the United States | World Mag

    J.C. Derrick at World Magazine: The Christian leaders I spoke with know that religious freedom in Canada is still far better than in many countries around the world, but they’re also aware of the slow ebb of infringement upon liberties once enjoyed. Several stressed the need for Christians to affirm what they support, instead of stating what they are against, to help alleviate the tension. But Benjamin Bull, chief counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom Global, told me that alone won’t stem the tide: “They sound very much like the cautious Jews in Germany in 1935, who said, ‘Let’s just keep our heads down and be good citizens and all of this will blow over.’ I’m not equating the Holocaust to what’s happening, but it’s extraordinarily dangerous not to confront [the growing threat].” [more]
