+  Media celebrating ‘Gay Pride Month’ ignore victims of the Sexual Revolution

  • Description: "June has been declared "Pride Month," and we're supposed to celebrate those "coming out" and living a "gay" life. June 12 will mark the third anniversary of the Pulse gay nightclub mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, that left 49 dead. Some will no doubt connect those two things to claim America hates people who have same-sex attraction and to make new demands for affirmation of homosexuality. But that's not the only lesson one could draw from these events.

+  Julian Castro and the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion

  • Description: “Julian Castro’s eagerness to show his support for taxpayer funding of abortion during the democratic debate points to the abortion extremism that has taken over his party. By equating "reproductive justice" with taxpayer funding of abortion, he reveals the party's fundamental schism with Americans writ large on the issue. Americans overwhelmingly oppose the use of tax dollars to pay for abortions, and yet democrats are actively and aggressively working to undo legal barriers like the Hyde Amendment. They now believe that forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is a matter of "justice." No doubt this election cycle will unveil a competition between the candidates as to who can be most extreme on abortion; Castro was just the first one out of the gate.” - Ashley McGuire
