Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of the popular TLC series 19 Kids and Counting are forming a coalition of pro-life groups to help fight against abortion.
The idea stems from their recent trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC; to the Duggars, abortion is itself a holocaust.
“A couple of weeks after we went to the Holocaust Museum it dawned on us that there is a holocaust taking place right here in America!” the Duggars wrote.

Democrat Kyrsten Sinema has been elected to represent a new Phoenix-area district, becoming the first openly bisexual person to serve in U.S. Congress.
Sinema’s victory came in a year when three states approved gay marriage, and at least five openly gay Democrats were elected to U.S. House seats.

This isn’t the only time West has been critical of someoneMore >

David Rakoff, an award-winning author best known for his dark humor and cynical outlook on life, passed away today after a long battle with cancer. He was 47.
Rakoff wrote for The New York Times and Newsweek, among other publications, and his essay collection “Half Empty” won the Thurber Prize for American Humor. He also penned the bestselling books “Don’t Get Too Comfortable” and “Fraud.”
Rakoff’s death was confirmed by Doubleday and Anchor Books.
“The world is a little less kind and a little less beautiful today,” his longtime editor, Bill Thomas, said in a statement, adding:
The North Koreans are coming, it appears, instead of the USSR in the remake of Red Dawn, the Cold War cult favorite starring Patrick Swayze and Lea Thompson.
Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson star in this reboot, which at least took 28 years to be remade (way more than the new Total Recall or The Amazing Spider-Man).
The 2012 Red Dawn plot is basically the same, in any case.
