Oprah's Mom

“Lots of people would’ve told you to abort that baby. You didn’t do that. I know that was hard. I want you to know that no matter what, I know that you always did the best you knew how to do. And look how it turned out.”

Those are the touching words Oprah Winfrey used to say goodbye to her mother who passed away on Thanksgiving Day this year.

Look how it turned out indeed. Vernita Lee’s daughter is now a billionaire instantly identified the world over by the mere utterance of her first name.

Oprah may not preach what her mom practiced but thankfully more Americans are choosing Vernita Lee’s example over her daughter’s.

In the last decade abortions in the U.S. have declined by 25%, according to the CDC.

Even as secular humanism has poisoned so many American institutions, sacred and civic, prayer warriors, Planned Parenthood defectors and the pregnancy centers who tend to families in crisis are winning hearts and minds.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we should also celebrate that the culture of life is beating back cultural Marxism.

The First Six Months Of IL's Taxpayer Funded Abortion Law

Last year, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law a bill that forced taxpayers to pay for elective abortions in Illinois. The results so far?

And why is the Illinois GOP surrendering Cook County and Chicago – even though the area of the state is in desperate need of new leadership? Proft and Hughes offer their thoughts on Republicans' failure to compete.
