The good thing about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is that it is very straightforward, there’s little wiggle room for the media’s typical machinations and euphemisms when it comes to abortion. The media has to be honest about what the bill is and what it does, which is why they like to take the focus off it and make the story about President Trump and Republicans.



Director Spike Lee won his first Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for "BlacKkKlansman" and he took the occasion to be the first one to really get political at the 91st Academy Awards on ABC.



There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”



Interview magazine published a pro-abortion puff piece on Feb. 20 in which Chelsea Clinton gave a softball interview to Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen in what was essentially a love letter to abortion giant.



It seems like abortion activists are getting more brazen in pushing their agenda to normalize and celebrate abortion every day. American singer Amanda Palmer released the single "Voicemail for Jill" on Tuesday, announcing matter-of-factly on Twitter, “this is my new song... it's about abortion.” along with a link to the audio.



In what world are vaccines comparable to abortions? Vaccines save lives, prevent horrible diseases and are recommended for everyone, while abortions take lives, cause horrible pain and are supposed to not be wanted by anyone. Only to an extreme, pro-abortion movement steeped in the racist eugenics history of Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger are abortions like vaccines, inoculating society from the scourge of the spread of more poor and minority babies being born.



Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day about love, but pro-abortion activists have managed twisted it into a celebration of the ugly, hateful act of abortion.



Trouble in liberal paradise? Apparently BuzzFeed News is concerned that America’s number one abortion business isn’t focusing enough on abortion and politics in the wake of former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ departure last year. Somehow, BuzzFeed News seems to be trying to spin it that new Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen is not radically pro-abortion enough.



President Trump spoke about important topics to our country like abortion, adoption and religious liberty at the National Prayer Breakfast, but his critics instead focused on a word slipup to bash and mock him on Thursday.



I guess “Ivanka Barefoot and Pregnant in the Kitchen” was too on the nose. A live “art” installation titled “Ivanka Vacuuming” has come to DC and instead of running it out of town as sexist and demeaning, as they would if it were almost any other woman, liberals are delighted.



After The Handmaid’s Tale's 2017 Super Bowl commercial was compared to "Trump's America," Hulu came back this year with an even more obvious attack on President Ronald Reagan.



Freeform’s sci-fi fantasy series Siren returned Thursday night and it looks like the second season is going to make a huge splash with a liberal agenda. Last year the perils of over-fishing was a subplot that came up, but it looks like already this year’s bad guys are going to be the evil oil companies. There were also some romantic feelings hinted at between a man, woman, and a mermaid, and now it’s been confirmed we will have “TV's first polyamorous mermaid thruple.”



The feminazi site Bustle, which celebrates all things Planned Parenthood and abortion, was delighted to report on the electoral victories of 6 current or former Planned Parenthood staffers who went from working for the billion dollar abortion business to elected office where they can now lobby on the inside for their radical agenda. To Planned Parenthood, that has got to be priceless compared to the tens of millions they spent on this year's elections.



[SPOILER ALERT for key plot elements of the final season of House of Cards.] If you thought the Netflix original political drama House of Cards was outlandish in the past, wait until you see how off the rails it goes in its final season while revealing some surprising truths about abortion and feminism on the way. The sixth and final season of House of Cards, released on November 2, takes place following the death of former President Francis “Frank” Underwood.



One thing is perfectly clear: CBS's reboot of the show Murphy Brown would not have happened if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential race. While that fact is admitted, it is hard to imagine why this show is needed given the abundance of bashing on network television of President Trump, but still they do their level best to provoke.



South Park once again opened up their latest season by intentionally embroiling themselves in controversy over a touchy subject. Forget about depicting the Prophet Mohammed, the Comedy Central show's 22nd season began on Wednesday with 5 school shootings, all met with little reaction from the townsfolk.



From gags like President Donald Trump being beckoned to the situation room with promises of doughnut crumbs to Vladimir Putin's declaration that the Helsinki Summit was "a vibrant conversation of me telling him exactly what to say and do," Stephen Colbert's animated Showtime series Our Cartoon President, is a sophomoric, ham-handed attempt to make fun of Trump, his family and administration. But the episode "First Family" might take its biggest shot at former President Bill Clinton for his "criminally poor impulse control."



In the wake of the horrific shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, celebrities seized the opportunity to do the same old song and dance on gun control at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, including one performer who prominently sported an anti-gun shirt on stage.



In an interesting twist that was at times humorous (It’s funny because it’s true!) while at others insulting, HBO’s hit comedy Silicon Valley flipped the script on gays and Christianity and admitted to the hatred Christians endure, especially on the left coast, by having a gay character come out of the closet as a Christian.



NBC’s Superstore leans in on sexism and falls flat on its face. On Thursday night’s episode, appropriately titled “District Manager,” after Jeff’s departure to be with Mateo, it is announced that for the first time Cloud 9 will have a female district manager, which leads the more liberal-minded employees to rush to celebrate the hire.
