Coulter says Kansas abortion doctor was ‘terminated in the 203rd trimester’

Ann Coulter doesn't "really like to think of it as a murder," discussing the killing of Kansas abortion provider George Tiller with Bill O'Reilly on Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor Monday. "I like to think of it as terminating someone in the 203rd trimester," the conservative personality says.

Chaput, Polis push ‘mutual interest’ in immigration reform

In a case of the world's strangest bedfellows, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis and Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput set aside their vast political differences to join forces Saturday to promote federal immigration reform at a Northglenn church Saturday. Those competing world views weren't lost on the Catholic News Agency's awkwardly worded press release citing Polis as "openly homosexual and a supporter of abortion rights" in which the archbishop and Boulder congressman "would disagree 'vigorously' on ‘some very serious social issues.’"

Why have we stopped talking about guns?

You know by now that in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, an elderly white supremacist and anti-Semite named James W. von Brunn allegedly walked into the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum with a .22-caliber rifle and killed a security guard before being brought down himself. He's 88 years old, with a long record of hatred and paranoid fantasies about the Illuminati and a Global Zionist state. How bitter the bile that has curdled for so many decades.

Abortion clinic violence prosecution cratered under Bush Administration

Scott Roeder, the 51-year-old accused of murdering abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in his Wichita, Kans. church, had a long history of ties to a violent right-wing extremist group, had previously threatened another abortion provider, and had just that week vandalized Tiller’s clinic.
Just as federal law specifically penalizes hate crimes, the law also makes it a federal crime to threaten or commit violence against abortion providers, or to vandalize their clinics. Yet as The Washington Independent revealed last week, the criminal law was not being enforced.

Antiabortion protesters jailed over protest at Focus on the Family

The longstanding feud between hard-line abortion foes American Right to Life Action and Focus on the Family founder James Dobson came to a head in a Colorado Springs courtroom Thursday. Rev. Bob Enyart, a pastor at Denver Bible Church who proudly refers to himself as “America’s most popular self-proclaimed right-wing, religious fanatic, homophobic, anti-choice talk show host” was sentenced to nine days in the city pokey after refusing to pay a $400 fine for trespassing on the Focus campus.

Dobson on Bush: Greatest president or greatest president ever?

Exhorting the eminence of former President George W. Bush, Focus on the Family's James Dobson and its new lobbyist Tim Goeglein, who left the White House as a disgraced former aide to Karl Rove, waxed rhapsodic for the better part of 90 minutes on the radio about the former Leader of the Free World's morality, faith and championing of the antiabortion culture wars. The stunning three-part "Insider View of the Bush Presidency" discussion culminated today on Focus on the Family's Daily Broadcast and drew sharp, if unspoken, contrasts with a morally-lacking President Barack Obama.

Boulder abortion provider deplores decision to close Tiller’s Kansas clinic

One of the last remaining providers of very late abortions in the country said it was an "outrage" the murder of Dr. George Tiller last week has led to his family's decision to close the clinic he ran in Wichita, Kan.

Boulder abortion provider calls on Obama to stand up against violence

One of the last remaining third-trimester abortion providers in the country wants President Barack Obama to do more than express shock and outrage at the killing Sunday of late-term abortion doctor George Tiller in Wichita, Kan.

Little-enforced law opens window for suits against extremist groups

The threats started in 1995. It was the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and the American Coalition of Life Activists decided to create a poster for their annual meeting listing the names and address of a group of doctors who performed abortions. They called them “the Deadly Dozen,” and declared each guilty of “crimes against humanity.” They offered $5,000 for information leading to their arrest, conviction, or revocation of their medical licenses. ACLA members distributed the poster at the group’s events and published it in an affiliated magazine.

Radical antiabortion forces may rebuild movement around May 31 day of...

The May 31 murder of Wichita physician George Tiller may hold a creepy significance for militant antiabortion protesters in the same manner that Adolph Hitler's birthday has been exploited by white supremacists to wreak racist mayhem.
