Bradford Richardson, The Hill – January 23, 2016

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says the Roe v.

Carly Fiorina: The Left’s ‘Fiction Says If You’re Pro-Life You’re Against Women’

Susan Berry, Breitbart News – January 22, 2016

“They’ve peddled the fiction that Planned Parenthood is all about women’s health, when, really, it’s all about abortion.

NBC Found Time to Ask About Bill Clinton’s Sex Life, But Not About Hillary Clinton’s New Defense of Abortion Rights

Rebecca Traister, New York Magazine – Daily Intelligencer – January 18, 2016

It no longer comes as news that the Democratic Party has committed political malpractice by making the primary debates between its smart, strong candidates so few and so difficult to watch. But Sunday night’s debate was perhaps the most depressing of the bunch, obscured as it was in the midst of a three-day weekend, yet offering some of the most specific, robust exchanges between the party’s increasingly closely matched candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
