Hood County Clerk Katie Lang issued a statement that said others in her office will be assisting same-sex couples, but the “religious doctrines” to which she adheres “compel me to personally refrain” from doing so.

Many are comparing the recent Supreme Court decision redefining marriage to Roe v. Wade. There are similarities but there’s also a significant difference. One that will hit you personally.
The five justices who redefined marriage for the nation made an attempt to give the appearance that they support religious freedom. “The First Amendment,” they wrote in the decision, “ensures that religions, those who adhere to religious doctrines, and others have protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so […]
I’ve been hearing many people compare today’s Supreme Court decision redefining marriage to the landmark 1973 ruling that forced abortion on all 50 states. There are similarities to Roe v. Wade, to be sure: The court overriding the power of states to self-govern, and the fact that this will presage decades of legislative and court […]

With a 6-3 decision, today, the U.S. Supreme Court once again saved Obamacare from language that’s actually in the law.

We all know marriage is beneficial for children. And a lasting commitment between a husband and wife also benefits society. But why is the state also interested in the institution of marriage?

They are called “telemed” abortions (when an abortionist talks to a woman on the internet and prescribes abortion inducing drugs), and they are now legal in Iowa.
The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that women may obtain chemical abortions without an examination by a physician. “Telemed” or “webcam” abortion refers to the practice of having an abortionist speak with a woman via the Internet and prescribing drugs to kill the baby. Often there is no follow-up, and women are left to deal […]
