Democrats keep puzzling about why they are losing so many elections, but they do not seem to want to hear the answer that so many people are giving: abortion. Pro-life advocates — Republican, Democrat, independent and otherwise – have been shouting out this answer repeatedly for years, but the words seem to fall on deaf ears. The abortion industry has embedded itself deeply into the Democratic Party, and many voters have turned away because they cannot stomach the party’s new taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand up until birth platform. Just a small minority of voters hold such a radical position. This week, after a pro-abortion Democrat suffered another loss in a closely-watched U.S. Congressional election in Georgia, conservative blogger Matt Walsh posed another…Continue Reading

ACTION: Planned Parenthood does not belong in our schools. Contact the Reading School Board at this link. Planned Parenthood is anything but helpful for teenagers, with all the ways the abortion giant has corrupted and confused them through explicit sexual advice, problematic sex-ed programs, and by targeting them online. Despite this, Planned Parenthood continues to seek out new opportunities in high schools around the nation, sometimes partnering with other organizations to disguise its influence. Right now, Planned Parenthood is seeking a strong foothold among high school students in Reading, Pennsylvania. AccessMatters, based in Philadelphia, has current plans to open a center inside the Reading High School. As explained by the Reading Eagle, which calls the facility a “health resource center,” AccessMatters “would…Continue Reading

The Committee will be under the USCCB’s Department of
