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 ...

Congress’s Responsibility & Zika
Most of us have heard of the illness marked by an unassuming low fever, sometimes accompanied by a rash, that can have a devastating effect on the development of an infant’s brain in utero: the Zika Virus. The virus originally broke out in the Americas in May 2015, and is primarily spreads through mosquitos and with a small number of cases resulting from sexual contact with an infected partner. By January 2016 the World Health Organization predicted the illness would spread to all parts of the Americas with the exception of Chile and Canada. In anticipation, the Obama Administration requested a large amount of funding in February to fight Zika, without a thoughtful plan for how the money should be spent. When Congressional Republicans pushed back, asking for a more thorough strategy before doling out $1.9 billion, the Administration called foul. “If Republicans think that it’s not that important for us to go to great lengths to protect pregnant women and their babies, then th
Unity in Competition: Rio Olympics
Recently, I have gotten in the habit of grimacing every morning when I open the morning paper, my eyes perusing the details of the latest attack or act of mass violence. Refugees flee ISIS and the Middle East in droves, with the creation of a special refugee Olympic “team” to even signal the fact. Our own country grapples with racial tension that has been bubbling like a cauldron in summer’s heat. In the midst of this unrest, though, the world pauses for a welcome tradition: the Olympics. The two weeks during which the entire world contributes teams, sending them to a central location to contend in non-violent competition. The games are welcome respite. Is it frivolous though, one may ask, to devote such time, news space, and thought to an event that doesn’t seem to have any real-world consequences? Well, the answer is that the Olympics does carry real world consequences. In fact, in the midst of our international battle fatigue, it may do more than refresh us; it may prove
Statement on Death of Phyllis Schlafly
“Phyllis was a great feminist leader who cut through to the values of faith, family, freedom, life, and traditional marriage. She refused to be intimidated by her most radical opponents, and she mobilized quite a coalition nationwide to support conservative causes. I was proud to have known her and to have had her support." ### Interested members of the media may contact Anna Swick at anna.swick@mail.house.gov
Russia's New Soviet-Style Law
A young man picks up the telephone and dials a number and anxiously waits as the other line rings. “Zdravstvujtye?” the voice on the other end responds. The caller picks his words carefully, knowing that the government can get its hands on a record of the conversation at any time: “Vi hotite kofe?” Would you like to get coffee? “Da,” the other line responds, “Proshchay,” Goodbye. Click. The man tucks a copy of the Bible and a tract inside his coat and checks the mirror before he walks out the door, to ensure the literature’s presence isn’t conspicuous. Such a scene smacks of the Cold War era, when the Soviet Union cracked down on the sharing of religious beliefs and openly monitored phone conversations. However, this scene could happen today, after July 7 when Vladimir Putin signed into law a bundle of new regulations. In early July, Vladimir Putin signed into law an amendment that will make sharing one’s faith outside of a government-recognized church a crime.
