LifeNews’ Endorsement of Cory Gardner Pushes Propaganda, Not Life in U.S. Senate Race

By Commentary Things are heating up in the Colorado U.S. Senate race. Popular Republican candidate Cory Gardner, a one time supporter of Colorado’s no compromise personhood amendment, came out last Friday declaring that he can no longer support such an initiative. The announcement comes as no shock to committed pro-lifers in the state who have watched Cory distance himself from social issues, especially abortion, proportionately to his rise in stature with the national Republican party. Fortunately, there are some pro-life organizations who are as concerned about winning actual victories for babies in the womb as with winning political elections. Personhood USA publicly reproved Cory Gardner for capitulating on the issue of personhood for the unborn. They especially expressed dismay with Gardner’s characterization of personhood legislation as being “too extreme” and “misguided” following Planned Parenthood’s deceptive cue card that such statutes would “ban contraception.” The reproof was needed and appropriate.

Florida abruptly cancels talk by professor and writer

Florida officials have abruptly canceled a talk by a Florida State professor and writer who has been critical of the administration of Gov. Rick Scott. Diane Roberts, who does commentary for National Public Radio and writes columns for various publications, was supposed to give a talk at the state-owned Mission San Luis on April 3. Roberts planned to discuss Florida’s environment and problems with the state’s rivers, lakes and springs. Brittany Lesser, a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Ken Detzner, said an “internal decision” was made within the secretary’s office to cancel the talk.
