Medved: Taxpayer Funding for Abortion is Not Pro-Choice


Joe Biden’s abandonment of his long-standing support for the Hyde Amendment has not only damaged his campaign, but should bring permanent changes to the language we use on the abortion issue.

Biden and other Catholic Democrats often insisted that they personally disapproved of abortion, but they didn’t want government to interfere with a woman’s so-called “Right to Choose.”

But if the Hyde Amendment is removed, that means the “Right to Choose” becomes a right to government funding for terminating your pregnancy. Many of those who said they wanted government to stay out of the abortion decision, now insist that government must get directly involved—by providing federal funding.

This is not a “Pro-Choice” position—it’s a “Pro-Abortion” position, demanding government subsidies. In the future, liberals who favor such funding should accept the “Pro Abortion” designation just as proudly as conservatives acknowledge that we are anti-abortion—and pro- life.

Hugh Hewitt: Trump Won Big

President Trump scored a big win last week after his weeks-long confrontation with Mexico over our neighbor’s lax enforcement of its southern border, and it’s left his critics sputtering.

They’re scrambling to find some way of containing what is a clear Trump triumph—and their flailing about denies the obvious: Trump played high-stakes poker and won a big round with Mexico on border security.

Media elites, well, many just deny it.

The voters, though— and I don’t mean the “Twitter Democrats,” but voters of all ages and ideologies—are a pretty smart bunch. They know, generally, that tariffs are a lousy idea in terms of economic growth. They know too that tariffs can be a blunt instrument of national power in confrontations unrelated to economic growth.

Trump’s record may be mixed, but not last week. Last week, he won big.

He should resume in full his push for immigration reform and border security talks with Democrats right now.

It might actually work.

Dan Proft: The Night Kodi Lee Changed the World

 

Kodi Lee is 22-year-old blind, autistic man who blew the doors of the joint on the popular “America’s Got Talent” show and left the nation in a puddle of joyful tears with his soulful rendition of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.” The views on YouTube are at 25 million and climbing.

Kodi is as astonishing as is the divide in America over whether the Kodi Lees of the world should even be allowed to live in the first place.

According to the intellectual godfathers of the pro-abortion movement, Kodi Lee is one of the “defective” people who should’ve been killed in the womb.

Watch him perform and tell me he isn’t a divinely inspired talent.

Watch Kodi Lee perform and ask yourself, is the world a better place with or without him?

“You just changed the world,” America’s Got Talent judge Gabrielle Union told Kodi Lee after his performance.

Let’s hope she’s right.
