Rep. Joe Pitts: My Side has Momentum on Abortion


January 21 marked the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision declaring that a woman's right to an abortion is constitutionally protected. The anniversary is being marked by opponents of abortion rights, who are holding their annual March for Life on the National Mall today. Abortion rights opponents have a lot to cheer about this year, in large part because the new Congress includes a greater percentage of lawmakers that are on their side. House Republicans last week introduced two bills to scale back federal involvement in abortion services, and House Speaker John ...


Rep. Joe Pitts tied to alleged Pakistani agent


Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) introduced a resolution in 2004 calling for peace between Pakistan and India in the disputed territory of Kashmir - just days after he had received a $2,000 campaign contribution from Zaheer Ahmad, one of two men charged with distributing Pakistani money to U.S. politicians, allegedly under the direction of Pakistan’s military, according to the Washington Post. Pitts’s office said there was no connection between the resolution and the contribution from Ahmad, who was charged by federal authorities with being a Pakistani agent on Tuesday, along with Syed Fai, ...


Barnes & Pitts tout Unemploy. Benefits for Milit. Spouses


State Senator Tim Barnes and State Representative Joe Pitts thanked Governor Bill Haslam this week for including unemployment benefits for military spouses in his proposed 2012-13 budget. “The Governor’s support of this bill shows that Tennesseans truly care about our military families,” Barnes said. “This is a tangible way to show our support and gratitude to our veterans, and I’m humbled to have the opportunity to do so.” The Governor’s decision marks the first time that such funding has been included in the state budget, after years of work by ...

The Real Story about Obamacare Access
Late on a Wednesday afternoon, my staffer climbed on her bike to ride home from my office in Washington, D.C. When she looked both ways to cross Independence Avenue, she thought she had time to reach the other side. She didn't. The light turned green and a silver Nissan accelerated into her side, flipping her over and carrying her through the intersection until she turned to the stunned driver and asked him to stop. She rolled off the windshield and limped to the sidewalk, dragging her bent bicycle behind her. Concerned passers-by clustered around her, flagged down Capitol Police, and one even followed the driver to capture his license plate. After the accident, my staffer was left with a sprained shoulder and ankle-- a miracle, considering the circumstances. She realized the next morning she would need physical therapy. After reviewing the details of her Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) healthcare plan, which her position in Congress requires her to buy, she was satisfied her plan woul
Breast Cancer & the Breakthrough Drugs that Helped My Daughter Survive
Ginny and I received a call the Monday before Thanksgiving, in 2015: our oldest daughter had been diagnosed with breast cancer. My daughter Karen had discovered an abnormality a week earlier, and her OB/GYN sent her for a diagnostic mammogram. From that, doctors discovered an aggressive breast tumor that had already grown to five centimeters in width and metastasized to her lymph nodes. Those first few weeks were surreal for our family, especially for Karen and her husband Curt. Karen’s doctors created an ambitious treatment program to beat back the cancer, including a cocktail of four different chemotherapy drugs: Taxotere, Carboplatin, Herceptin, and Perjeta. During chemotherapy, the doctors explained to my daughter (who previously was a nurse), that one of the biggest risks for chemo patients is their white blood cell count. A low white blood cell count can leave chemo patients remarkably vulnerable to a sickness like the common cold, and because of their weakened state, the cold
Law Sentences Pakistani Woman to Death
Yesterday, Pakistan’s Supreme Court was scheduled to hear the final appeal of Asia Bibi, the first woman in Pakistan to be sentenced to death for blasphemy. Asia is 45 years old. She was born and raised in a small village in the poor region of Punjab, Pakistan. When she grew up, she married a man named Ashiq Masih and they had two children in addition to three from his previous marriage. One fateful day in June 2009, Asia walked to a local berry field in search of work. There she was promised 250 rupees for a day of gathering berries. The sun beat down on her as she picked, and eventually she broke away to drink from a nearby well. The other women began murmuring against her, angrily insisting Asia had made the drinking source haram (forbidden by Allah). It was now unclean for the rest of them. Asia was a Christian and a regular attendee of a local Catholic church; her family was one of only three Christian families in a village of 1,500 families. One Muslim woman explained, "We cou
Moroccan Cash for Sovereignty
Last week, the New York Times reported leaked emails between Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager James Podesta and Ms Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, discussing a speaking engagement in Morocco Secretary Clinton sought out on behalf of the Clinton Foundation. In 2014, Hillary Clinton approached the Moroccan government about hosting the “Clinton Global Initiative Middle East & Africa” meeting in Morocco. The king agreed and donated a large amount to the Foundation and the meeting. Ms. Clinton’s aide wrote in a private email, “This was [Hillary’s] idea, our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approx $12 million both for the [Foundation’s] endowment and to support the meeting.” But what was the trade off? King Mohammed did not make the meeting donation in his own name. Although he could have made the massive gift directly from the Moroccan government, or even from his own pers
