Boehner: We Are Working to “Restore the Damage of Roe V. Wade”

Robin Marty

House Republicans come out in support of anti-choice activists during the "March For Life."

Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor may not be finding much to agree on when it comes to dealing with the debt ceiling, the budget crisis, and the payroll tax negotiations.  But one place they remain completely in sync?  Cutting off women’s access to reproductive choice.

Both Republicans discussed their renewed commitment to the cause at this year’s “March for Life.”

Via the L.A. Times:

“We are heeding the voice of the people, who overwhelmingly oppose taxpayer funding of abortion,” House Speaker John A. Boehner said in opening remarks at the 39th annual March for Life in Washington. “With your help, this bipartisan majority is standing up for life and working to restore the damage of Roe v. Wade.”

“We come today to stand together and voice our belief that innocent life is precious, and the taking of life morally wrong,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) “Our dollars should never be used to take life. It is time to protect conscience rights for those who oppose abortion.”

Apparently the 2012 federal agenda is going to look just like 2011.

GOP Infighting: “Don’t Nominate Dogs”

Robin Marty

The party continues to struggle for its own identity.

As the Republican Party continues to examine where it lost its momentum during the previous election cycle, finger-pointing is rampant. Establishment GOP players blame the Tea Party, the Tea Party blames the establishment.

But one conservative pundit has boiled the whole fiasco down to one simple rule: Make sure your candidates aren’t jerks.

Via the Los Angeles Times:

Friday, for instance, conservative columnist Michael Barone told an audience at Hillsdale College’s center in Washington that the tea party, while bringing some talented politicians to the fore, also brought some “wackos and weirdos and witches.”

In a video of his comments, posted on the Daily Caller website, he singled out the GOP’s losing Senate candidates in Missouri and Indiana — Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock — who he said committed “unforced errors” with their remarks against abortion cases of rape. “Don’t nominate dogs, OK?,” he said.

Words both parties should live by.

McCotter: Roe V. Wade Promotes “Culture of Death”

Robin Marty

Add another presidential hoepful to the Susan B. Anthony pledge list.

With an announcement so non-descript that most people missed it, and non-existent polling numbers, Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter is probably the least noticed candidate in the GOP field.

But one group who does know he exists?  The Susan B. Anthony List, who got him to sign their super-anti-abortion pledge.

Via MLive:

“The culture of death, as enshrined by Roe v. Wade, is a present danger to the weakest in our society,” he said in a statement released by the Susan B. Anthony List, the conservative non-profit group sponsoring the pledge.

“Unless Roe is overturned, the culture of death will continue to fester and endanger Americans. To protect future generations of Americans, we must work in our families and our communities to uphold the sanctity of human life.”

This may end up being McCotter’s only headline for the next two weeks, too.
