OPINION & ANALYSIS WORTH NOTING

Past Newswire Headlines

RECENT OPINION & ANALYSIS ARTICLES

Biden Administration Refuses to Recognize Long-Term Effects of Puberty Blockers, by Dan Hart. “As it turns out, despite the NIH’s sham ignorance, studies have in fact already been done on the long-term health effects of puberty-blocking drugs on minors, and the results aren’t pretty: sterilization, reduced bone density, cognitive problems, increased body fat percentage and body mass index, decreased lean body mass, and arterial hypertension.” Read more here.

 

Biased Washington Law Is a Gross Violation of Therapists’ Freedom of Speech, by Nicole Russell. “Washington’s law violates the First Amendment rights of therapists with traditional views. The state has no business dictating private conversations between clients and therapists. Furthermore, it is advantageous for therapists to have the freedom to encourage their clients to consider all avenues of healing – especially when it comes to sexual orientation and gender identity issues. Pushing clients to pursue only one lifestyle could be devastating later.” Read more here.

 

Stating Biological Facts Is Now Sexual Harassment, by Kaylee McGhee White. “…[T]he Biden administration has turned Title IX into yet another tool for radical gender ideologues to force compliance with their ideology throughout the public education system – which is exactly what’s happening in Wisconsin… If stating a biological fact and referring to boys as boys and girls as girls now counts as a form of bullying, then it is clear our society has lost its grip on reality completely.” Read more here.

 

The Adolescent Mental Health Crisis Is Our Responsibility, by Erica Komisar. “Newly-released statistics on suicide rates reveal a rise in adolescent suicide from 2020 to 2022… The increase in the despair and anger of teens – as reflected in rising suicide rates – are an example of the collective trauma we have all experienced. And yet this mental health crises [sic], which existed before COVID, is also a communication to us as parents, teachers, and other authority figures that we are failing our children by not preparing them for adversity in their lives…” Read more here.

 

A Brand New Phase of the Pro-Life Movement, by Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Those who are pro-life have steadily built the pro-life safety net over decades. Thousands of pregnancy centers and maternity homes nationwide provide essential medical, educational, and support services to millions of women and families each year. This is all the more impressive considering their mostly volunteer workforce and historically private funding. And as one expert on these centers points out, their clients are overwhelmingly pleased, reporting satisfaction rates of more than 97%.” Read more here.

 

The Left Has Effectively Banned Christian Kids From Public Pools, Libraries, and Summer Camps, by Joy Pullmann. “Given how socially contagious LGBT identification is, it’s not just about transgender issue [sic] but also exposing children to sexual information and pressures far earlier than they are ready. Hand in hand with grouping children by gender identity is forcing conversations about what that means, which pushes children earlier and earlier to declare and investigate sexual behaviors. This is destabilizing to their identity, not ‘affirming’ it.” Read more here.

 

Under Biden’s Title IX Changes, Wisconsin’s ‘Sexual Harassment’ Circus Over Trans Pronouns Would Ensnare Students in Every State, by Kylee Zempel. “This story is a preview of exactly the kind of routine hostility we can expect for students all over the country, First Amendment be damned, if Biden and his bureaucrats successfully write ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ into the meaning of ‘sex’ in education. If they prevail, you could be the next one getting a phone call to let you know your child is a sexual harasser for discerning between the sexes and between singular and plural words.” Read more here.

 

In Battle Between Religious Liberty vs. LGBTQ Rights, One Case Declares Clear Winner, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “In his ruling, O’Connor determined not only that religious nonprofits can escape Title VII liability for firing, refusing to hire, or taking other adverse job actions against LGBTQ employees, he went further, saying both sets of employers could implement sex-specific dress and grooming codes for men and women, and could require employees to use restroom [sic] designated for their biological sex.” Read more here.

 

The U.S. Military’s K-12 Schools and Hospitals Are Pushing Transgender Ideology on Kids, by Amy Haywood. “The excuse for keeping gender transitions hidden from parents is that it would render a child unsafe at home. However, this is sophistry parading as concern: if the teacher in Rota believed the mom was dangerous, why didn’t she follow policy that requires her to report suspected abuse, and why was the ‘unsafe’ mom still employed? Further, given that military children are at higher risk for childhood trauma, why is DoDEA pushing surreptitiously transitioning a child as an implied ‘best practice?’” Read more here.

 

With New Book, Pediatricians Try to Ensnare Kids in Gender Ideology, by Douglas Blair. “Other nightmarish terms the book uses to confuse children include ‘sperm-making bodies’ to refer to boys and ‘baby-growing bodies’ to refer to girls. ‘You-ology’ revels in these sex nonspecific phrases… Later chapters recommend that kids who are uncomfortable with their bodies should wear binders or ‘tuck’ their genitals. The book claims in some cases, medical intervention, including puberty blockers, is necessary.” Read more here.

 

Using ‘Wrong’ Pronouns Could Lead to Suspensions in Virginia Public Schools, by Joshua Arnold. “…[T]he school board conducted an annual review of its Regulation 2601, proposing edits to a 70-page-long document on ‘Student Rights and Responsibilities,’ and parents noticed something shocking. According to a short provision buried deep in the document, students could face suspension for up to five days, and possibly further punishment, for referring to a fellow student according to their biological, God-given sex.” Read more here.

 

Parents Against Stupid Stuff, by Betsy McCaughey. “Adults deciding where to settle and raise their families once considered tax rates, job opportunities and housing prices. Now they also have to ask themselves whether they want their children in schools that push gender fluidity, teach masturbation and provide tampons in the boys’ room for females transitioning to become males… Parents are outraged by the indoctrination and sexualization of their children.” Read more here.

 

The Left’s War on Children, by Mike Stenhouse. “The next major issue will be claims of the declining mental health of our nation’s youth – and it might be true to some extent. And, of course, the agenda-driven left will be ready to rush in with its latest prescriptions and school curricula, including destructive policies that will further advance its agenda and, ultimately, only make matters worse… These are purposefully inflicted wounds that will leave lifelong scars on our nation’s most precious assets.” Read more here.

 

Target Normalizes Transgender Lifestyle, by Nicole Russell. “Showcasing these items as if teenagers everywhere have been looking for a chest binder or unisex article of clothing grossly overestimates the number of LGBT youth, normalizing these items for kids who are not their target audience. This goes beyond a need to represent a population that claims to be marginalized. This is a blatant attempt to normalize something about which most teenagers cannot relate.” Read more here.

 

Cakegender? Genderfaun? Orbgender? by Jeff Johnston. “Libs of TikTok recently posted a video of a young person explaining … what ‘xenogender’ is… Well, typically, I would laugh or roll my eyes and move on with my life after seeing something like this. But this seems like a good teachable moment. Here’s a key point: Gender activists are making all this up as they go along, so don’t expect it to make sense. Here’s a second key point to understand – and act on: Gender activists and their allies want to sexualize and confuse children by inculcating them into this irrational belief system.” Read more here.

 

The Shifting Language of Abortion, by Kathryn Lopez. “…[T]he Pro-Choice Caucus also wants to move away from the word ‘unwanted’ pregnancy in regard to a woman seeking an abortion. Instead, it suggests the word ‘unexpected.’ No doubt, that is to make sure the girl or woman is seen with sympathy. But I see that word and want a woman faced with an ‘unexpected’ pregnancy to know that she has options, that there is support out there for her and her child. Instead, too often, all signs in her life point to an abortion clinic.” Read more here.

 

Marvel Has Fallen to the Woke Mob, Introduces Transgender Superheroes, by Sarah Arnold. “Escapade co-creator, Charlie Jane Sanders, said he created her to be a ‘cool weirdo,’ adding, ‘Morgan was there for Shela when she was first transitioning … supporting each other through their transitions when they were kids.’ So Marvel is making it seem normal for kids to go through transitions. Sanders said she wanted transgenderism to be a ‘key part of the story.’” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Wants More Powers for International Health Experts, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “The Biden administration proposes to establish an international monitoring committee of the World Health Organization to review efforts at pandemic readiness… The World Health Organization routinely describes abortion as a human right and used the COVID-19 emergency to promote abortion. The new committee would give the international agency a monitoring role similar to human rights mechanisms that routinely pressure countries to liberalize their abortion laws and regulations.” Read more here.

 

Planned Parenthood Profits Big From Getting Kids Hooked on Transgender Hormones Through the School-to-Clinic Pipeline, by Jared Eckert and Emma Sofia Mull. “Planned Parenthood has quietly been in the gender transition business since at least 2017… While those seeking puberty blockers or surgical procedures are referred elsewhere, Planned Parenthood is offering access to cross-sex hormones, promoting gender ideology in sex ed programs, and establishing ‘well-being centers’ in local high schools. The organization is looking to cash in on gender transition for years to come.” Read more here.

 

Court Gives Another Win for Religious Freedom – and for Parents, by Quin Hillyer. “The school system has a policy requiring teachers to call students by personally ‘preferred’ names and pronouns matching the gender each student ‘identifies’ as but then requires that when teachers communicate with parents, they use the given name and original gender pronoun. In sum, the policy requires the teacher to kowtow to a child’s wishes but keep the parents in the dark about the child’s decision to identify as a different gender.” Read more here.

 

Microsoft Pledges Support for Abortion, ‘Gender Affirming Care’ Travel Costs for Employees and Their Dependents, by Tim Meads. “Does your videogame company support a woman’s right to annihilate her child in the womb? Does it pay for costs related to a medically-induced gender transition for employees’ dependents?  Microsoft certainly appears to be in favor of having access to such services… Additionally, it will be extending company benefits to include covering travel expenses for employees who have to go out of state in order to legally receive both procedures for themselves or their dependents.” Read more here.

 

7 Reasons Roe v. Wade Should Be Overturned, by Bruce Ashford. “Because of Roe, the gains of the civil rights movement were undone in an instant. A few Ivy League lawyers decided that an entire class of human beings – unborn beings – would be denied justice and equality. Those unborn beings now have far fewer rights than many species of birds, and the body count of Roe-enabled deaths far surpasses the total deaths caused by World War II. How has Roe harmed American society? Here are seven ways.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Lobby Has Corrupted Daily Journalistic Ethics, by Quin Hillyer. “Beneath a picture of what looks like a boy and his father, it says (with my emphasis added), ‘Granbury (Texas) High School junior Lou Whiting, 17, rests their hands on “This Book Is Gay” by James Dawson during a public inspection of books designated for removal at the Granbury school district administration building. Above, she looks over books with their father, David Whiting.’ Huh? How can an individual boy be both a ‘she’ and a ‘they’ in the same sentence?” Read more here.

 

Schools Across America Promote Planned Parenthood Services and Curriculum, by Spencer Lindquist. “Schools across America are partnering with the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, turning to them for sex education curriculum starting in elementary school, listing them as ‘community health partners,’ and promoting their services to students.” Read more here.

 

Dangerous Abortion Bill in Congress Risks Health of Baby and Mother, by Teresa Stanton Collett. “Proponents of the act claim that it simply codifies Roe v. Wade. That is not true. Rather, it establishes a regimen of abortion absolutism that goes far beyond Roe… In addition to the elimination of almost all protections states afford women and the unborn, any attempt by states to craft new protections will be subject to federal intervention anytime local abortion providers claim a proposed law impairs their ability to perform abortions freely. In short, the act will impose the most aggressive pro-abortion policy in the world outside of China.” Read more here.

 

Why Today’s Left Is Willing to Admit Abortion Kills a Child and Still Support It, by Elle Reynolds. “If self-gratification is our highest good, then any act (up to and including the murder of a child) becomes good if done in its pursuit. If we are our own arbiters of truth, then moral reality ceases to become an inhibition, and life itself ceases to become an inherent good. If limiting the licentious indulgence of our own desires is ‘oppression’ and therefore the greatest sin, then the anti-abortion crowd becomes the bad guys.” Read more here.

 

New Study on Transgender Children Reinforces Social Transitions, by Nicole Russell. “Its findings suggest that young children who socially transition to a new gender, by changing their name, pronouns, and clothes, tend to continue to identify with that ‘new’ gender five years later. The New York Times gleefully inferred that this means the right thing for parents to do when their child is questioning their identity is to begin socially transitioning them. There are a few issues with the study.” Read more here.

 

The Current Gender-Affirming Care Model in B.C. Is Unvalidated and Outdated, by Joanne Sinai, MD. “Canadian physicians should not ignore the potential risks of the affirmation model when there is international evidence of harm to vulnerable youth… We are in a unique position to rethink the treatment model for gender dysphoria. I hope we can begin a dialogue, so that our youth can get the treatment they need and deserve. Gender affirmation is not a one-size-fits-all model. To allow ideology to prevail over sound medicine is negligent at best.” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court’s Decision on Overturning Roe Will Be an Inflection Point for the Nation, by Joy Pullmann. “The potential overturn of Roe v. Wade is a massive opportunity to overturn a horrifying evil, and therefore to do great good. The opportunity to do great good is a strong and previously unavailable motivator. It would be a huge energizer for those who have resisted the usurping regime’s massive efforts to get us to stop seeing and talking about what we have seen that regime do to our nation. It would be the fall of a great spiritual Berlin Wall inside our nation.” Read more here.

 

Trans Narrative Under Fire in Sweden, by Michael Cook. “The troubling revelations from the SVT’s investigative reporters were one factor in new guidelines for gender-affirming care issued in February by the National Board of Health and Welfare. It stated that, based on current knowledge: ‘the risks of puberty suppressing treatment … currently outweigh the possible benefits, and that the treatments should be offered only in exceptional cases.’” Read more here.

 

UN Exploits Climate Change Concerns to Push Contraception, Population Control, by Grace Melton and Jay Richards. “…[I]f you look closely, you’ll find that, at the U.N., protecting the Earth often provides cover for unseemly causes like abortion and population control. These hide in phrases like ‘meeting the unmet need for family planning.’ In the global arena, ‘comprehensive sexuality education,’ contraception, ‘safe abortion care,’ and maternal health all fall under the umbrella of sexual and reproductive health rights.” Read more here.

 

‘Social and Emotional Learning’ Programs Are No Substitute for Mothers, by Kimberly Ells. “Is school-based social and emotional instruction the best way to nurture social and emotional wellness in children? Some programs have reported helpful outcomes. But is there an even better, more effective way to foster social and emotional wellness in children, and therefore in society at large? Yes. It is this: Let children be raised and taught principally by their mothers and fathers while they are very young.” Read more here.

 

Gender Dysphoria: When Politics Influences Science, by Sarah Arnold. “The definition that was removed from a bestselling medical textbook by Merck Manual … mentioned that ‘Gender dysphoria is characterized by a strong, persistent cross-gender identification associated with anxiety, depression, irritability, and often a wish to live as a gender different from the one associated with the sex assigned at birth.’ It was removed after the Florida Department of Health cited it in a recent guidance advising against gender transitions for children and adults.” Read more here.

 

Polling Reveals That American People Are Not on the Side of Democratic Position of Abortions Without Limits, by Rebecca Downs. “Democrats point to how a majority of respondents do not want to see Roe overturned. A major reason for that, though, is because many don’t know overturning Roe will not automatically ban abortion nationwide, as they have been led to fear. Rather, it will allow the states to decide their own abortion laws through their elected officials.” Read more here.

 

Protecting Imprisoned Women From Men Who Say They’re Women, by Nicole Russell. “Women serving time in prison or jail still deserve to be treated humanely and with respect. They still have a right to privacy and safety. But, intimidated by a vocal minority, local politicians and officials have buckled under new definitions of sex and gender, showing they are more worried about being sued for discrimination by criminals trying to take advantage of women, than being sued for an assault such as rape.” Read more here.

 

The Problems of Putting Off Children, by Nathanael Blake. “…[G]etting married and having children helps us build and establish more substantial identities than those sought through professional advancement and personal pleasures, or relationships that always come with an exit option. In particular, the permanence of marriage and children indicates that these gifts express the deeper aspects of our identities, while also reflecting the truth that we are ordered toward giving and receiving love.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Gender Transition Agenda Is Harming Children, by Washington Examiner. “The day is coming when thousands of de-transitioners, having been rushed into this idiocy as children too young to consent to it, will suffer lifelong regrets because of irresponsible people such as Levine and President Joe Biden. They will file lawsuits against their former medical providers and public school districts. And even the multimillion-dollar judgments they win will not restore their bodies or the potential their lives will have lost.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Don’t Just Want to Keep Roe, They Want the Unlimited Ability to Kill Preborn Babies, by Jordan Boyd. “Democrats are outraged that, according to a leaked version of the Dobbs v. Jackson opinion, the United States Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade – but their hypocritical insistence that abortion is the ‘law of the land’ is fueled by the party’s determination to codify abortion without any restrictions.” Read more here.

 

GLSEN: An Instrumental Organization Responsible for Infiltrating Schools With LGBT Ideology, by Chrissy Clark. “One organization is highly influential in infiltrating private and public schools with LGBT ideology in the form of teacher programming, resources, and research, according to an analysis conducted by a concerned parents organization. GLSEN … is the touchpoint between political activism and activism in K-12 public and private schools. The organization is responsible for teacher training, school policy guides, curriculum, and Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) clubs in schools nationwide…” Read more here.

 

New Biden Title IX Order Will Help Schools Push Transgenderism on Your Kids Behind Your Back, by Sharon Supp. “All children need protection, and redefining ‘sex’ under Title IX … will endanger them. In most cases, children need the protection of their parents, not protection from their parents. Erroneously redefining ‘sex’ to include gender identity will hasten the spread of secretive ‘gender support plans,’ which, at their core, undermine parental rights. Parents should, therefore, proceed with caution, as this signals that a monumental parental rights battle looms ahead.” Read more here.

 

UN Actors Angry About Supreme Court Abortion Decision, by Austin Ruse. “The U.S. Supreme Court is on the verge of overturning the 50-year-old abortion regime in the United States, and some at the UN are not happy including the Secretary General… The spokesman for Secretary General Antonio Guterres said, ‘The Secretary General has long believed that sexual and reproductive health and rights are the foundation for lives of choice, empowerment and equality for the world’s women and girls.’” Read more here.

 

I Had an Abortion. Here’s Why I Want Roe Reversed, by Cathy Harris. “My pro-life stance is more than an opinion; it is a faith-filled, moral, and spiritual resolve. After experiencing my own abortion and sitting eye-to-eye with hundreds of hurting post-abortive women over the years, I have no other choice but to believe abortion has to end one day. It has to end for the sake of the innocent children being killed and for the scared, coerced, or misled women who feel they have no other choice.” Read more here.

 

Christian Employers Push Back on Government’s Transgender Procedures Mandates, by Nicole Russell. “Providing coverage for ‘sex change’ surgeries, cross-sex hormones, or other related things – especially via federal mandate – is particularly egregious to conservatives and especially to people of faith… The fact that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is mandating any business, faith-based or not, to provide coverage of these surgeries and treatments is a willful misinterpretation of the definition of sex discrimination outlined in Title VII.” Read more here.

 

Georgia Leads the Way in Protecting Parents’ Rights, by William Estrada. “Georgia shows us that elected officials are starting to listen to parents. It shows that parents are winning. And it should remind us, yet again, that parental rights are bipartisan. Elected officials across the political spectrum should sit up, take notice, and support the right of parents in the education of their precious children.” Read more here.

 

Alito’s Draft Abortion Decision Is Brilliantly Persuasive, by Quin Hillyer. “As Alito demonstrates at great length, Roe was so poorly reasoned that subsequent ‘pro-choice’ Supreme Court decisions have jettisoned all of it — both its reasoning and its practical applications. All that remains is a shell around the idea that abortion is a right… In sum, not even those who say abortion is a constitutional right can settle among themselves why it is such a right or what provisions of the Constitution actually protect it. That’s because, as written, it manifestly does not.” Read more here.

 

The United States Is Radical on Abortion When Compared to Other Countries, by Charlotte Pence Bond. “A more recent report by the Family Research Council … backs up the claim that the United States is far outside the norm of international standards on abortion. It showed that the United States is one of just six countries that permits abortion throughout the entirety of a woman’s pregnancy. The countries included in its report were Canada, China, Vietnam, North Korea, and South Korea.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Transgender Decree, by Byron York. “Levine has declared the argument among medical professionals over. The new consensus, amazingly enough, agrees with Levine. And now, the administration will move to the next step. Since the debate is over, since there is a scientific consensus in favor of ‘gender-affirming’ treatment, those who are still criticizing are not debating the facts. They are attacking their fellow human beings.” Read more here.

 

The Left Is Finally Admitting That Abortion Means Killing Children, by Jordan Boyd. “The difference between the pro-life community and the left is no longer about whether babies in the womb are indeed children. It’s that, even though Biden, Goldberg, and the ACLU seem to understand that abortion ends a baby’s life in utero, they and the rest of the abortion lobby are still advocating for the destruction of preborn lives.” Read more here.

 

Fact-Checking 6 Outrageous Claims About Leaked Supreme Court Draft Overturning Roe v. Wade, by Fred Lucas. “Amid news reports about the leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that would end abortion on demand, critics wailed in the media, in speeches, and on Twitter about the proposed ruling… If the Supreme Court overturns Roe, it would not ban abortion but rather allow state legislatures to determine to what extent abortion is allowed in their states. Here are fact checks of six assertions made about the leaked draft opinion.” Read more here.

 

Unanimous Supreme Court Flies Flag for Free Speech in Case Against City of Boston, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “In a rare unanimous ruling…, the Supreme Court secured a major victory for free speech. In the opinion in Shurtleff v. Boston, authored by retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, the court ruled that the city of Boston violated the Constitution when it prohibited a group from flying a Christian flag on a flagpole it had held open to other groups and their flags.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Admit It’s Women Who Get Abortions After All, by Laurel Duggan. “Democrats made an admission about what type of people can actually get abortions in the wake of a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion… After many liberals pushed for gender-neutral terms surrounding pregnancy and abortion such as ‘birthing people’ instead of ‘women,’ prominent Democrats made statements appearing to suggest only women can get pregnant and have abortions.” Read more here.

 

Why Does YouTube Host This Channel That Teaches Kids About Porn and Abortion? by Bailey Duran. “One particular video discusses abortion with a purple monster as the friendly guide to all things abortion. The monster says abortion is always okay if that is what the ‘pregnant person’ wants. He also lists some reasons people may choose to get an abortion, such as they don’t want a baby, they have too many kids already, or something is wrong with the baby.” Read more here.

 

California Lawyers Train Teachers to Deceive Parents While Grooming Children, by Jeff Charles. “Progressives tend to complain when conservatives use the term ‘grooming’ when describing these practices. But what else are we supposed to call it, when teachers, counselors, and other school faculty are blatantly working to help kids transition without their parents’ knowledge? What else should we say when these schools are actively developing ways to avoid notifying adults when they are teaching progressive ideas about sexuality and gender to children?” Read more here.

 

Four Reasons to Distrust UCSF’s Study Alleging Safety of ‘No-Test’ Abortion Pill Protocol, by Bettina di Fiore. “We mandate independent trials for drug efficacy and food safety, yet we presume that abortion profiteers will produce more reliable science about the very product they sell than truly independent researchers. In no other industry would we accept the fox-guarding-the-henhouse status quo we afford the abortion industry. This study is yet one more example of the sloppy, biased ‘science’ we should expect such a situation to produce.” Read more here.

 

Ongoing Bathroom Wars Challenge Concepts of Equality and Discrimination, by Nicole Russell. “Many schools have attempted a kind of balancing act by allowing students identifying as transgender to use a facility designed just for them because a full transgender bathroom ban may result in an expensive lawsuit. However, many transgender students will buck at the compromise of transgender bathrooms and insist it is not equal enough. Of course, it is.” Read more here.

 

New Jersey Schools to Install Radical Youth Sex Curriculum, by Penny Starr. “A New Jersey media outlet reported on the new sex education curriculum set to be installed in K-12 schools in the state but did not investigate the group that designed it. Advocates for Youth is a far-left organization that pushes gender fluidity, abortion on demand, transgenderism, and promiscuous relationships to young people.” Read more here.

 

Sarah Has Been on Both Sides of the Abortionist’s Table. Here’s What She Wants You to Know, by Alasdaire Fleitas. “If the Supreme Court strikes down Mississippi’s ban on abortion and others like it, millions of unborn children will be sacrificed to the lie that it’s empowering for women to abort their children. In reality, killing an unborn child brings nothing but trauma, guilt, and heartbreak. Not only can the Supreme Court save the lives of millions of unborn children, but the lives of so many women may be salvaged too.” Read more here.

 

Gender Dysphoria and Adverse Childhood Experiences, by Walt Heyer. “Given the role of [Adverse Childhood Events] and mental illness in the development of beliefs about transgender identity, it is folly to suggest that the first and only step in treating deep hurt and trauma done to a person’s identity in childhood is to alter the body with cross-sex hormones and surgery. But that’s exactly what is happening today. I hear from people who wake up from the transgender surgery nightmare, distraught and sometimes suicidal for allowing something so destructive and ineffective.” Read more here.

 

How Safe Haven Laws Help Make Abortion Unnecessary, by Leanna Baumer. “Many women see abortion as an imperfect resolution to unwanted parenthood. It’s time we listen to their voices and emphasize a broadened framework for choice that includes parenting with community support services (like those freely offered by the nearly 3,000 nonprofit pregnancy help centers similar to the one I lead), open adoption, and also safe surrender options beyond birth.” Read more here.

 

Underwear Flattening Children’s Genitals? Just Another Example of Gender Ideology Insanity, by Debra Soh. “Medical professionals have warned that using temporary measures to modify one’s body can result in serious side effects. For example, chest binders, especially popular among teenage girls looking to flatten their breasts to present a masculine-looking form, can fracture ribs and lead to back pain and difficulties in breathing. In the case of boys, flattening the testes and maintaining them too close to the body can harm sperm production and lead to infertility.” Read more here.

 

Growing Up Lonely: Generation Z, by Daniel Cox. “New findings from the American National Family Life Survey show that Americans raised in single-parent homes are more likely to report having felt lonely growing up than those raised in two-parent households. They’re also more likely to miss out on formative experiences, such as daily family meals, an activity that has been associated with lower rates of depression.” Read more here.

 

Sexual Left Loses Ground at UN Population Commission, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “Western diplomats took a rain check on an all-out battle to push homosexuality and transgenderism and other controversial social policies at the UN Commission on Population and Development. They gave up on adding new language to promote abortion, homosexuality, transgender issues, and sexual autonomy for children in the commission’s agreement early this week. They vowed to fight harder next year instead…” Read more here.

 

Oral Arguments at Supreme Court Offer Glimmer of Hope for Praying Coach in First Amendment Case Against School District, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “The questions facing the justices are these: When a public school employee says a brief, quiet prayer by himself while at school and visible to students, is he engaged in government speech that lacks any First Amendment protection? And if not, assuming that kind of religious expression is private and protected by the First Amendment, does the Constitution’s establishment clause require the public school to prohibit it anyway?” Read more here.

 

What Will It Take for Prosecutors and Politicians to Take Abortion Crimes Seriously? by Susan Wills. “There seems to be a lack of political will to mandate and fund reasonably frequent, unannounced inspections of abortion facilities for the health and safety of women and to deter illegal activities. The District of Columbia joins 19 states in exempting abortion facilities from even annual inspections. Abortion is not health care, but it has definite health impacts. If Washington’s government will not change its laws and policies, Congress should. Our common humanity requires it.” Read more here.

 

Protecting Kids From Bathroom Bullies, by Jameson Taylor. “…[F]eeling bullied is not the same as actually being bullied. Being asked to respect the privacy rights of other students by using a single occupancy bathroom, instead of a shared restroom or locker facility, is not bullying. Indeed, many people prefer the privacy that single occupancy bathrooms afford. In any event, making demands that violate the privacy and safety rights of other students is a form of actual bullying that will cause suffering and anxiety for many other students.” Read more here.

 

School District Secretly Pushes Sexual Orientation to Eight-Year-Olds Behind Parents’ Backs, by Jeff Charles. “The far left, instead of defending the teaching of this material, has chosen to lie about it. They ridicule anyone suggesting these topics are being taught to small children. It is a pathetic attempt to gaslight parents who are concerned about what teachers are teaching to their kids behind their backs. But as more of these stories surface, it is becoming more and more difficult for progressives to continue lying about it.” Read more here.

 

Biden Will Try to Break UN Stalemate on LGBT Issues and Abortion, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “…[T]he UN bureaucracy has increasingly become a channel for the leftist sexual policies of wealthy Western countries, including sexual autonomy for children, abortion without parental consent for girls as young as ten, and explicit comprehensive sexuality education for children younger than five. Western countries want to legitimize these developments by having UN agreements, like the resolution of the commission expected to be adopted next week, to endorse these policies.” Read more here.

 

New York Times Admits: Experimenting on Trans Kids Has Horrifying, Irreversible Consequences, by Eddie Scarry. “You’re supposed to be comfortable with this. You’re supposed to feel a sense of compassion for parents who go through the process of artificially, irreversibly altering their child’s biological chemistry. You’re supposed to be accepting of parents who let their kids make life changing medical choices to remove and mutilate their genitals… That this stuff is happening should upset everyone. If it’s not, there’s nothing left to say about it. The monsters have won.” Read more here.

 

Judge Puts Temporary Hold on Kentucky Abortion Law, but the Real Fight Is Still to Come, by Rebecca Downs. “The law also has provisions requiring abortion providers to maintain local hospital privileges in case a complication arises… There are new reporting requirements, as well as annual audits to ensure compliance. The abortion facility must also cremate or bury the aborted fetal remains, rather than treat them as medical waste. The abortion facilities, Planned Parenthood and EMW Women’s Surgical Center, claimed that they could not comply with certain provisions of the law immediately, or even potentially at all.” Read more here.

 

Sexualizing Schoolchildren: Comprehensive Sex Ed, by Jeff Johnston. “Years ago, if schools even taught basic sex education, educators usually promoted abstinence, emphasizing delaying sexual activity until marriage. This sex ed focused on biology, puberty, reproductive systems and preventing sexually transmitted infections. But in many schools, this has been replaced with CSE – a radical ‘rights-based’ and ‘pleasure-based’ sexuality curriculum.” Read more here.

 

Biden Admin Doubles Down on Pro-Abortion, Pro-Transgender Policies as It Looks to Get Rid of Conscience Rule, by Rebecca Downs. “The 2019 rule would have given teeth to HHS’ ability to enforce these protections for providers, by penalizing hospitals and practices that retaliated against those who claimed conscience protections… Conscience protections are popular with Americans. According to a poll …, 75 percent of respondents said such professionals with religious objections ‘should not be legally required to perform abortions.’ This includes 65 percent of Democrats and 67 percent of pro-choicers.” Read more here.

 

Pregnancy Centers Are the Answer to America’s Abortion Problem, by Thomas Glessner. “The left’s proclamations that women will be victimized if Roe is overturned ignore the magnanimous work of nearly 3,000 pro-life pregnancy centers and medical clinics. The charitable work of these centers provides – free of charge – medical and non-medical services, hope and life-affirming options to mothers who feel alone and powerless.” Read more here.

 

Finnish Prosecutor’s Decision Paints Picture of Hostile Path Towards Free Speech and Christianity, by Rep. Chip Roy and Sean Nelson. “The prosecutor’s decision to appeal the case is not only absurd. It paints a clear picture of what is to come for people of faith if the West continues barreling down a path that is increasingly hostile to free speech and, especially evident in this case, Christian belief. Opponents of freedom of speech and religion never shy away from an opportunity to silence debate and snuff out open discussion, which are the foundations of a free society.” Read more here.

 

Two Biden Rules on Trans Care Raise Religious Liberty Fears, by Cassidy Morrison. “The rule could apply in ways that would not be likely to raise religious liberty concerns. For example, it would require that an insurer that agrees to mammograms for biological women must also cover that service for transgender women, who are also susceptible to breast cancer. But legal experts who specialize in religious freedom argue that the updated rule could amount to a mandate on insurers to cover transition procedures to which religious providers might object.” Read more here.

 

Amid Public Concern About Grooming Kids, American Library Association Picks ‘Marxist Lesbian’ as President, by Joy Pullmann. “In the rest of the presentation, Drabinski went on to teach librarians how to change how visitors find books about sex, contradicting her claims to the Boise reporter that librarians don’t work to get sexual material into patrons’ hands. This very effort has been a part of Drabinski’s public professional work for decades, by her own public attestation.” Read more here.

 

Florida Follows the Science With New Guidelines on Transgender Treatment for Kids, by Katrina Trinko. “Finally, someone actually cares about the children. The Florida Department of Health released new guidelines … about treating gender dysphoria in children. Unlike the recent guidance from the Biden administration, Florida’s guidance doesn’t promote aggressive medical interventions for minors who are struggling with gender dysphoria.” Read more here.

 

Biological Sex Isn’t Up for Debate, by Armstrong Williams. “Regardless of what the mainstream media and Democrats might want you to think, no one can change their biological sex, regardless of the hormones or surgical procedures that they might undertake to attempt to do so. We are at a moment in time where up is down and down is up, and it’s a dangerous precedent if we allow it to foment itself as a cultural norm and standard.” Read more here.

 

Even the Left Is Beginning to Admit It Has Pushed Transgenderism Too Far, by Kaylee McGhee White. “Transgender orthodoxy has moved so far past the bounds of sanity that any attempt to question its effects is quickly discouraged and punished. We are expected to shut up and accept that public schools are passing policies to keep students’ gender identity transitions from parents, that medical professionals can file to remove children from their parents’ custody if parents oppose physical and chemical transition efforts… None of this is normal or even remotely defensible, and everyone, including many on the Left, know it.” Read more here.

 

The D.C. 5: Callousness, Cruelty of Post-Viability Abortion, by Steven Aden. “Why are we constantly warned in online reports of the D.C. 5 incident that photographs of the babies are ‘graphic’ and to view them advisedly? The pictures are hard to look at, but that’s the point… The Charlotte Lozier scholars who examined the bodies harkened back to the words of William Wilberforce, … who was instrumental in ending the slave trade. ‘You can choose to look away, but you can never again say that you did not know,’ Wilberforce said.” Read more here.

 

California Democrats Ban Adjectives During Public Comment Session on Abortion Bill, by Kira Davis. “California Democrats have introduced an abortion bill so shocking that it drew over a thousand pro-life supporters out to the capital of Sacramento on Tuesday night to register their protest during public comments… The Democrat response to the protesters was less than impressive and right on brand. With an estimated 1,500 people waiting to make comments, they limited the public comment session to one hour.” Read more here.

 

A Bipartisan Win for Religious Freedom, by Sean Nelson. “In a remarkable show of bipartisan cooperation, last week, the Senate unanimously reauthorized the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act. The reauthorization, included within a bill to suspend normal trade relations with Russia and Belarus, makes permanent a landmark piece of legislation used to target gross violators of internationally recognized human rights. The act has been a vital tool in advancing religious freedom worldwide.” Read more here.

 

Kentucky Abortion Facilities Ceasing to Do Business Have Themselves to Blame, by Rebecca Downs. “Providers said there is no way for them to comply with the law given its immediate effective date. But if you think they’ll be willing or able to comply with the law even if they were to have more time, think again. ‘They said it would be difficult to comply with the law even long term because some of the information they are required to provide on the forms would violate patient privacy and they don’t think they could find funeral homes who would work with them to dispose of remains,’ the WSJ noted.” Read more here.

 

China’s Complex Abortion Problem, by Yi Fuxian. “…[R]educing the incidence of abortion in China is easier said than done. In the past, the authorities regarded the country’s large population as a burden, and the one-child policy not only encouraged women to have abortions but also involved the government forcing them to do so. From television screens to giant outdoor billboards to roadside electricity poles, abortion advertisements are everywhere in China. Abortion is regarded as casually as dining out is and is widely available in hospitals and clinics.” Read more here.

 

Powerful Arguments to Keep ‘Trans Ed’ Out of Schools, by Betsy McCaughey. “Trans advocates want greater acceptance. But instructing young kids that it’s normal for boys to become girls and vice versa is going too far. Parents rightly fear their kids are being ‘groomed.’ In the last two decades, the proportion of minors saying they’re transgender has soared to 1.8%… Children need to be protected from gender hysteria and moving headlong into transitioning.” Read more here.

 

In Preparation for Dobbs, Florida Is Latest State to Defend the Sanctity of Life With Abortion Ban, by Shawn Fleetwood. “The pro-life actions taken by Republican-led states come as the U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide on a major abortion-related case this summer. As noted by … correspondent Tristan Justice, ‘a decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization contesting a Mississippi abortion ban after 15 weeks of pregnancy is expected in June, with the potential to reverse the court’s landmark 1973 decision in Roe.’” Read more here.

 

Children’s Storybook Glorifying the Killing of Unborn Babies Disgusts Even Some Abortion Supporters, by Jonathon Van Maren. “Scores of … people pointed out that a family cannot be ‘created’ by abortion, because abortion kills a child. A family can only be damaged by these acts of violence against its weakest and most vulnerable members, not ‘created.’ Pro-choice [social media] accounts also expressed their disgust, noting that abortion bedtime stories for children is simply a bridge too far, even for those who support permitting feticide.” Read more here.

 

D.C. Abortion Scandal Shows the Overwhelming Systemic Bias Facing Preborn Children, by Sam Dorman. “The prevailing and callous indifference to preborn life … can only last so long. Pro-choice leftists may argue that it’s inappropriate to even consider preborn babies as the type of humans who could experience social injustice. But science has ‘literally unveiled’ humanity in the womb – and in doing so, indicated preborn babies are humans who feel the weight of social burdens even more acutely than victim groups routinely cited by the left.” Read more here.

 

The Left, Children and Sex, by Laura Hollis. “Why should 5- and 6-year-olds be subjected to books or other materials with sexual content? And yet, the uproar on the Left has been nothing short of astonishing. Social media is now filled with TikTok videos in which teachers are demanding the right to discuss their sexual preferences and gender identity with the students they teach, as well as the right to encourage their students’ sexual experimentation and gender confusion – all without knowledge of the children’s parents.” Read more here.

 

The Hidden Threat to Freedom of Conscience in the [UK] Conversion Therapy Bill, by Stuart Waiton. “Using coercion to force someone to change their beliefs is criminal. The bill, however, talks about not only coercion but ‘manipulation.’ Based on this definition, if it can be called a definition, there is the potential that anyone who attempts to persuade someone from desisting from involvement in a gay relationship could be criminalized… Either we live in a free society where people can express their beliefs freely or we do not. If the UK bill is passed, there is a serious danger that this freedom will be lost.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Activists Use Unreliable Surveys to Emotionally Blackmail America, by Chad Felix Greene. “The truth is, we simply cannot say what does and does not ‘cause’ suicide in youth, and we can only speculate based on the self-reports of anonymous survey takers, assuming their reports are accurate. What we can determine, however, is that there is no objective evidence to suggest increasing parental involvement in schools and restricting advanced adult education on sexuality causes distress or suicidality, certainly not in children under the age of 10.” Read more here.

 

Why Parental Rights Activists Use Term ‘Grooming’ in Support of Laws to Protect Kids, by Nicole Russell. “One of the strangest reactions to all this is for the left to ridicule the use of the word ‘groomer’ – specifically, the semantics of the issue – rather than condemn the conversations teachers have admitted to having all over the internet… Rather than obsess over whether or not conservatives should use this word or that word, it’d be far more productive to ascertain what adults are teaching our kids in schools and whether that’s beneficial for them or not.” Read more here.

 

Alabama School District Caves to Atheists, Bans Prayers at Football Games, by Todd Starnes. “The school board consulted with their attorneys and decided it would be best to stop the prayers. ‘The superintendent met with school principals, and the administration will not allow prayer at school-sponsored events, including football games,’ read a letter from the district’s attorney to the out-of-town atheists. Cowards, all.” Read more here.

 

How Much Is Social Media to Blame for Teens’ Declining Mental Health? by Jean Twenge. “I noticed the early increases in teen depression when I was writing my book about the generation born after 1995… At first, I had no idea why teen depression was increasing so much in such a short period of time. But then I noticed some big trends in teens’ social lives: They were spending less time with their friends in-person and more time online. That tends not to be a good formula for mental health, especially for girls, and especially when that online time is spent on social media.” Read more here.

 

Democrat Leadership Killed a Virginia Bill That Would Have Banned Post-Abortion Infanticide, by Ashley Bateman. “Democrats were so afraid of life-affirming legislation, leadership even pocketed a bill that would protect a baby who survived an abortion. It has gotten so radical in Virginia that Democrats won’t even acknowledge that babies who are born after an abortion procedure should not be killed. …[T]he Born Alive bill may have passed if Senate leadership had brought it to a fair hearing.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Title IX Changes Are a Threat to Due Process and Women’s Rights, by Kaylee McGhee White. “…President Joe Biden is trying to use Title IX as a tool to erase women – to force schools and universities that take federal funds to embrace the cultural radicalism of the Left, if they have not already. This poses a serious threat to the rights of students, especially female students, who will be expected to sacrifice their right to privacy and equal opportunity on the altar of gender ideology.” Read more here.

 

Sex Educators Say ‘Early Grades May Be the Best Time’ to Introduce Children to LGBT Issues, by Jeff Johnston. “In an online meeting with sex educators, two researchers said that sex education is ‘most important’ for children, and, they stated, ‘It can be strongest when it starts in elementary school…’ That’s right. Teach young children – even preschoolers – about gender ideology and homosexuality. And do so before basic truths – such as the reality that humans almost always form opposite-sex relationships or that people come in two forms, male or female – get ‘more deeply ingrained’ and less easy to change.” Read more here.

 

I Asked What My Daughter Would Learn in Kindergarten. Then the Teachers Union Sued Me, by Nicole Solas. “The principal said they don’t call children ‘boys’ and ‘girls,’ and teachers embed values of gender theory into classroom lessons… The principal told me these were ‘common practices’ but could not define a ‘common practice’ or tell me when these ‘practices’ originated. Now I wanted to know these ‘common practices’ and the educational pedagogy supporting them, but the school refused to answer my questions.” Read more here.

 

Lia Thomas Was Just the Beginning. Biden Administration Wants to Eliminate Women’s Sports, by Sarah Parshall Perry and Abby Kassal. “…[T]his new Title IX rule will unilaterally expand the prohibition against discrimination based on ‘sex’ to include: ‘sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics (including intersex traits), pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.’ For anyone who’s been half awake since January 2021, it’s clear that this administration’s pet mission is to advance the transgender agenda.” Read more here.

 

Not a ‘Kitchen Table Issue,’ Jen Psaki? Actually, Our Kids Are All We’re Thinking About, by Abigail Shrier. “That the Biden administration would peddle an activist talking point with no solid factual basis signals how desperate they are to please the radical flank of its supporters. That is too bad. Leaders who mollycoddle the activists quietly corrupting nearly every institution of American life fool themselves that they are merely paying a tax. They don’t realize it’s a ransom, and that those who demand it will never be satisfied until they have despoiled every American institution. And much worse in this case: they encourage irreversible harm to children.” Read more here.

 

Biden Significantly Boosts Funding to UN Agency Complicit in Human Rights Abuses, by Lisa Correnti. “The newly released White House budget for 2023 requests $56 million for the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and calls for removing stipulations preventing the powerful UN agency from funding programs in China. This despite a recent Congressional report confirming China’s ongoing ‘genocide’ of Uyghurs in Xinjiang, including through brutal population control programs… Language prohibiting funds for abortion and funds to China have been eliminated.” Read more here.

 

The Most Radical Abortion Law in the Nation, by David Harsanyi. “Colorado’s new law doesn’t merely allow abortion of viable babies, for any reason, until crowning; it makes eugenic arguments about the ‘social, moral, and economic benefits’ of not having children, as if any law or regulation compels anyone to do so. The debate, lest it be repeated, is over when life is worth protecting. According to Colorado, which has no fetal-protection laws either, an unborn baby is never considered a life – so you can stop playing them that Baby Mozart.” Read more here.

 

The [Irish] Government Is Keeping Us in the Dark on Abortion Data, by Maria Steen. “To date, the Minister has refused to publish any meaningful figures about the operation of the law… This approach runs contrary to the spirit of the ‘information age’ in which we live. Other countries which have made abortion legally available publish detailed statistics, which give a fuller picture of the operation of their law and the circumstances of women seeking abortions. Questions of racism, the oppression of poor and marginalised women and ‘gendercide’ arise – but we can challenge abuses only if we have the data.” Read more here.

 

Protecting Children From Sextortion, by Sarah Harding. “Today, children are rarely abducted by strangers in public places. Child sex abusers have new highly effective tools to find their victims. Technology allows the abuser to gain virtual access to a child and obtain sexually explicit images that are then distributed online in a matter of seconds, a crime called sextortion, which the FBI says is on the rise… Gaining an understanding of how online predators operate can help parents more effectively prepare their children for the dangers they will encounter online, including how to detect sextortion.” Read more here.

 

A Universal Basic Income for Transgender People? by Nicole Russell. “On March 24, the Palm Springs City Council unanimously approved [a] request … for $200,000 in funding. The purpose of that funding? To determine the best way to operate a guaranteed income pilot program primarily for transgender and nonbinary individuals. This seems discriminatory and like a waste of taxpayer dollars… No one should be homeless, transgender or not. That said, it’s wholly discriminatory for Palm Springs to spend $200,000 to figure out whether only transgender or nonbinary people need universal basic income stipends.” Read more here.

 

Red and Blue States Chart Opposite Courses as Dobbs v. Jackson Looms, by Sarah Westwood. “A number of red states are pursuing bans on abortion that would face potentially successful court challenges in the event the Supreme Court upholds the abortion protections established by the 1973 Roe decision. Some blue states, meanwhile, are looking to codify abortion protections in anticipation of a potential erosion of the legal precedents that prevent most abortion restrictions from getting enacted.” Read more here.

 

UNFPA Report Frames ‘Unintended Pregnancy’ as Global Crisis, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “How does UNFPA account for the enormous disconnection between intention and pregnancy? ‘The biggest issue, by far, is the unmet need for contraception,’ according to the new report. UNFPA has often used ‘unmet need’ interchangeably with a lack of access, but this is inaccurate. Based on surveys of women themselves, only a small percentage – about 5% – of ‘unmet need’ is caused by a lack of access to family planning.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration to Demand Colleges Erase Women’s Sports, Due Process, Free Speech, and Men and Women, by Madeline Osburn. “President Joe Biden’s Department of Education is expected to finalize changes to Title IX rules in the coming weeks to expand the definition of discrimination beyond sex to also include sexual orientation and gender identity. The rule changes will have seismic implications, setting off not just state versus federal showdowns over state laws barring biological males from competing in women’s sports, but also how college campuses handle sexual harassment charges and due process.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Pills Take Center Stage as Supreme Court Considers Landmark Case, by Charlotte Pence Bond. “One of the main concerns with the pills is ectopic pregnancy… Such pregnancies are only visible via ultrasound, meaning pregnant women receiving abortion pills without seeing a physician wouldn’t be aware of the condition… Another concern about these drugs being sent through the mail is that this could be used to provide cover for perpetrators of sexual abuse. For example, if a young girl becomes pregnant, it’s important for her to be seen in person so a medical provider can screen for abuse.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Order on Gender Transitioning Kids Shows Left Is All in on the Culture War, by Jarrett Stepman. “The left is all in on the idea that being a man or a woman is a social construct, that men can and should compete in women’s sports if they identify as women, and that children should take life-altering drugs if at any moment they feel like they are not the sex assigned at birth. The left now demands that the law, from the top down, enforces this evolution of ideas… With its new HHS order, the Biden administration is signaling that it is for the cultural revolution, and that you will accept its faith, or else.” Read more here.

 

Biden Doubles Down on Radical ‘Gender-Affirming Care’ for Kids, by Jay Richards. “[Arkansas’ SAFE Act] prevents doctors from prescribing puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones or performing surgeries on minors to ‘affirm gender identity…’ Biden opposes this. You read that right. The White House thinks that minors can consent to their own sterilization. And Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services claims that this is the proper standard of care for treating minors who struggle with their sexed bodies.” Read more here.

 

In Finland, a Win for Free Speech Everywhere, by Elyssa Koren. “In no way isolated to Finland, this case is a stark example of the dangers of pervasive ‘hate speech’ laws sweeping the globe. We must not let this win obscure the reality that the day has arrived in which expressing an opinion on social media could conceivably land someone in jail. As this dystopian day dawns in Europe, Americans should take note. The U.S. is far from immune to the insidious trend of silencing – cancel culture is closing in around us everywhere, and the looming threat of jail time has already arrived on our shores.” Read more here.

 

The Four States Planning to Become ‘Abortion Sanctuaries’ as Others Pass Bans, by Cassidy Morrison. “The court is slated to rule in June on the most consequential abortion rights case in decades, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. The case pertains to a 2018 Mississippi law effectively banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, which flouted the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision to allow abortions up to the point of viability, between 22 to 24 weeks. The majority-conservative court has signaled its willingness to consider overturning Roe, a prospect that has sent blue states scrambling to preserve the right to abortions within their borders.” Read more here.

 

Is TikTok Dangerous for Teens? by Leonard Sax. “One parent told me: ‘…I already use the TikTok Family Pairing option so that I can see what my daughter is doing in the app.’ I remind parents that I see many teens who have created two TikTok accounts. One is the ‘clean’ account which they show to their parents and which their parents follow on the Family Pairing option. The other is the real account, where the daughter is watching, or posting, the videos she doesn’t want her parents to see.” Read more here.

 

Florida’s New Law Is Only Bad for People Who Believe Parents Have No Rights Over Their Children, by Eddie Scarry. “On CNN, Moricz fretted that the law would prohibit ‘queer’ children from coming out as non-heterosexual to their teachers. That impression – to the extent that it’s an honest one – appears to come from some notion that requiring schools to provide parents with total access to their own children’s health records could potentially mean ‘outing’ students to family members before they’re ready to do so. But to the contrary, the law explicitly protects students from that very scenario.” Read more here.

 

On Transgenderism, the Biden Administration Is Disguising Cruelty as Compassion, by Kaylee McGhee White. “[The Department of Health and Human Services] went on to claim that ‘evidence-based interventions such as puberty blockers and gender-affirming hormones’ are actually essential for ‘transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents’ and should be followed up with ‘”top” surgery – to create male-typical chest shape or enhance breasts’ or ‘”bottom” surgery – surgery on genitals or reproductive organs, facial feminization, or other procedures.’” Read more here.

 

Lawsuits Targeting Florida’s Parental Rights Law Get Puff Piece Coverage, by Rebecca Downs. “’After they wed in 2016 when same-sex marriage became legal in Florida, they thought they would be guaranteed all the “rights and privileges” that come with it, Casares says, including having their child be protected and treated equally under the law,’ Carlisle’s piece dramatically begins in part. There’s no indication, though, that Casares and Feinberg, as well as their child, will not have those ‘rights and privileges,’ including when it comes to ‘having their child be protected and treated equally under the law.’” Read more here.

 

A Teachable Moment – Let’s Tell Teens the Truth About Sex and Its Consequences, by Janet Morana. “Organizations like Planned Parenthood have been telling teens for decades that sex is a normal and natural part of adolescent life. Of course, the nation’s number one abortion seller would say that, but the reality is that sex is hazardous to teenagers’ health. Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise and teens are among the groups most impacted… Teens have a lot to lose when they become sexually active, so instead of encouraging this behavior, or looking the other way, let’s face it head on.” Read more here.

 

Yes, Schools Are Secretly Trying to ‘Gender Transition’ Kids, and It Must Be Stopped, by Emilie Kao. “More mothers and fathers across the country are waking up to the shock that schools and government officials are promoting transgender ideology in the classroom and then ‘socially transitioning’ confused children, sometimes even behind a wall of secrecy. ‘Gender support plans’ put out by school administrators require school employees to use names and pronouns that align with a student’s gender identity instead of their biological sex.” Read more here.

 

UN Experts Exceed Their Mandates on Same-Sex Relations, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “The text of CEDAW contains no direct references to lesbians, homosexuality, or sexual minorities, and its use to create new categories of human rights protections in these areas is controversial and not supported by states parties to the treaty.  Nevertheless, the CEDAW Committee has used its communications to advance such a standard on numerous occasions, particularly in the last two decades.” Read more here.

 

Gay Lobby Disappointed at Just-Concluded UN Commission, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “The 54 Member States of the UN Commission on the Status of Women have refused to bow to U.S. and EU pressure on homosexual/trans issues. The just-concluded commission adopted an agreement largely along the lines of past years, with marginal bureaucratic gains for homosexual/trans issues and abortion groups through ambiguous terms like ‘sexual and reproductive health’ and ‘women in diverse situations and conditions.’” Read more here.

 

Disney Executives Admit: Of Course We’re Grooming Your Children, by Elle Reynolds. “Disney isn’t just grooming children with radical sexual propaganda – now they’re bragging about it. On the heels of Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education law, which bars educators from instructing kindergarten through third-grade students about sexual ideology, multiple executives and employees from the Walt Disney Company admitted their own personal missions to deluge 5- to 9-year-olds with as much of their own sexual ideology as possible.” Read more here.

 

Leaked Documents Show How Teachers Recruit Students, Form Gay and Transgender Clubs in Schools, by Christopher Tremoglie. “For example, one of the recommended activities is for teachers to ask students their Kinsey Scale rating. …[T]he Kinsey Scale … emphasizes that ‘sexuality is fluid’ and that human sexuality does not fit into ‘two strict categories.’ Moreover, it asks participants to describe their emotions behind having sexual intercourse with people of the same sex and other sexual fantasies. It’s a completely inappropriate activity for teachers to do with students, regardless of age.” Read more here.

 

Finnish Court Rebukes State Prosecution of Christians for Saying God Made Men and Women Different, by Joy Pullmann. “Rasanen and Lutheran Bishop Juhana Pohjola were acquitted of all four ‘hate crimes’ charges against them for speaking the Bible’s teachings that sex is rightly reserved for lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. The three-judge court not only cleared the two Christians but ordered the prosecution to pay their legal costs, ruling that in a free country courts have no place deciding permissible religious views.” Read more here.

 

At UN Commission on Status of Women, Far Left Ties Gender Ideology, Abortion to Climate Change, by Grace Melton. “Whatever its stated theme, radical feminists and their allies in Western governments and the UN bureaucracy use the annual event as cover for radical policies and abortion on demand. This year, they folded their abortion promotion into left-wing gender ideology and yoked it with the well-funded climate agenda… It’s hard to believe that the United Nations is serious about improving women’s lives when it seems to promote abortion at every turn. Furthermore, its embrace of gender ideology threatens to erase women by denying the realities of biological sex.” Read more here.

 

Now, a California Bill to Permit Infant Death by Neglect, by Wesley J. Smith. “As in the Maryland law, if a state actor seeks to bring an action against people who give birth or those who help them ‘based on their actions or omissions’ with regard to ‘perinatal death,’ that person or entity can be sued… One blue-state bill that would allow a born baby to be neglected to death might be an anomaly. A second that does that – and perhaps could be interpreted to allow infanticide, also – is a pattern. The cultural Left is blazing new grounds of depravity.” Read more here.

 

This School District Might Be the Worst Violator of Parental Rights, by Ian Prior. “By both pushing students to conceal their sexual and/or gender identity from their own parents and dismissing objections of parents, there is little doubt that the Eau Claire Area trainings comprise unwarranted usurpation, disregard, and disrespect for parental choice when it comes to biological sex, whether that choice is based on faith or a basic understanding of human biology.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Declines Religious Liberty Case, but One Justice Hints at Potential Outcome in Future Cases Like It, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “…[T]he Supreme Court declined to hear the case of a religious organization claiming it had the right to refuse to hire individuals who did not share its religious beliefs. In denying the case on technical grounds, Justice Samuel Alito indicated that if it or a similar case came before the court in the future, the justices could likely find in favor of such a right for religious employers.” Read more here.

 

High-Quality Study Finds Preschool Enrollment Makes Children Learn Less and Misbehave More, by Joy Pullmann. “This trend of increasingly negative disparities over time among preschool attendees also affected student behavior records, the study says… These negative behavioral findings included decreased rates of school attendance, violations of school policies such as cheating and disobeying the dress code, being held back a grade, and being diagnosed with a learning disability or emotional disturbance.” Read more here.

 

USA Today and Gender Studies Experts Confirm: Women Don’t Exist, by Zachary Faria. “Between establishment media and their chosen ‘experts,’ we’re clearly in good hands… The reason Jackson’s response is such a big deal is precisely that it exposes the ideologues such as Dastagir, who are imposing their anti-science zealotry on media, schools, and sports. They use genetic abnormalities to justify their view that men and women don’t biologically exist and are entirely interchangeable social labels. It doesn’t make any sense, but if you can’t trust gender studies professors, who can you trust?” Read more here.

 

What Sen. Mike Lee’s Discussion of Abortion Procedures and the Media Censorship Says About the Issue, by Rebecca Downs. “It wasn’t just that Sen. Lee brought up the issue, specifically in the form of the particularly gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure, that is worthy of attention, but how pro-abortion journalist Aaron Rupar, of Vox, covered it, or, more accurately, didn’t… Many who called Rupar out offered that if abortion is no big deal to someone who is pro-abortion as he is, then it shouldn’t be a big deal to discuss the method.” Read more here.

 

Will Finland Side With Religious Freedom? by Frank Wolf and Arielle Del Turco. “We must not allow the secular equivalent of blasphemy laws to take root in law or culture. What’s unfolding in Finland should be a wake-up call to stand for our freedoms, rather than take them for granted. We may not think that such a case could happen in the United States, but Räsänen thought the same thing about Finland until it happened to her.” Read more here.

 

Jackson’s Failure to Define ‘Woman’ Indicates She Won’t Protect Females on Supreme Court, by Nicole Russell. “By refusing to answer the definition of ‘woman,’ Jackson leaves the door open to what she thinks about sex, gender, and controversial cases like Bostock v. Clayton County… If Jackson is unable or unwilling to define what a woman is in a legal sense, this can pose real problems for future cases she may hear as a sitting Supreme Court justice. How can she know what the law says on sex and gender identity if she cannot define sex? How can she rule in cases on women’s issues or rights when she isn’t sure how to define a woman?” Read more here.

 

Parent Bill of Rights Would Let Wisconsin Parents Sue Schools for Exploiting Our Kids, by Alyssa Pollow and Emily Donohue. “Wisconsin’s parent bill of rights establishes a statutory legal right for parents to direct their child’s education and a legal framework to hold schools accountable to this law. Among the rights enumerated in the bill are the right to review and receive access to educational materials, the right to be notified about and opt out of certain educational topics, the right to choose the name and pronouns one’s child goes by at school, … and the rights to be notified about school safety concerns and student surveys.” Read more here.

 

No, School Boards Are Not ‘Banning Books,’ by David Harsanyi. “If parents want, they can, in only a few minutes, order ‘This Book Is Gay,’ ‘Out of Darkness,’ or ‘We Are the Ants’ at a reasonable price. But Granbury Independent School District has no constitutional obligation to stock its shelves with novels touching on rape, abortion or transgenderism; there is no tenet of free expression that demands libraries make books on racial identitarianism available to kids; there’s no rule that state [sic] schools must keep books on a shelf in perpetuity simply because a librarian ordered it.” Read more here.

 

Mother of Trans Teenager: Los Angeles County Killed My Daughter, by Tori Richards. “’The more you pull on this thread, you will be shocked,’ said a Brooklyn parent named Emmaline… ‘We have been lied to, brainwashed and manipulated – all to turn my child’s nonconformity and anxiety into a pharmaceutical product.’ Emmaline took a crash course in child dysphoria three years ago when her 12-year-old daughter suddenly announced she was gay, then later decided she was transgender.” Read more here.

 

‘We Are Just Guinea Pigs:’ Women Describe Trauma of Transitioning as Teenagers, by Tori Richards. “Social media is filled with a neverending stream of detransitioners who are trying to undo the effects of hormone therapy and invasive surgeries such as hysterectomies and mastectomies… The average age to detransition is 23, approximately five years after undergoing transition, a clinical survey of 237 participants showed. Seventy percent realized that their gender dysphoria was related to other issues, such as existing depression.” Read more here.

 

Top Pediatrician: Teenage Transgender Medicine a Deadly Path, by Tori Richards. “Transgender health care is a big business, so it’s not clear if the runaway train can be slowed any time soon. Van Meter said he has seen a 500% increase in treatments on minors over the past decade. Online sites such as Plume offer a one-stop shopping experience complete with virtual doctors who can sign off on prescriptions and refer patients for surgery for a monthly $99 subscription. Sites such as Reddit are filled with posts of teenagers asking for doctor referrals and giving surgery advice.” Read more here.

 

WHO Guidelines on Abortion Imply Conscience Objections Are ‘Indefensible,’ by Kevin J. Jones. “The document’s twenty-second recommendation addresses conscientious objection, contending that there is a ‘human rights obligation to ensure that conscientious objection does not hinder access to quality abortion care…’ The WHO document suggests ‘prohibiting conscientious objection in urgent or emergency situations’ and also regulating conscientious objection in a way that includes ‘identifying, addressing and sanctioning non-compliance.’” Read more here.

 

Religious Freedom Is Under Threat in Victoria, by Andy Mullins. “In reality this means that a religious school may no longer prioritise the employment of teaching staff who support the religious ethos of the school… The law only recognises the right of specific teachers in religious schools to teach religious knowledge, but not the right of the school as a whole to build a culture informed by faith. Faith and life are decoupled under this law. It is a direct attack on religion and on the rights of parents.” Read more here.

 

Gender Ideology Is on Life Support. My Day Watching Lia Thomas Swim, by Colin Wright. “At some point, and I suspect it will be soon, the force of cultural pushback in response to the excesses of gender ideology will begin to prevail… Stark absurdities, like what occurred at the NCAA Women’s Championships last week, will only fast-track gender ideology’s demise. Reality can only be warped so much before it eventually snaps back to reclaim its original form, and more and more people are everyday becoming privy to the destructive nature of the current gender madness.” Read more here.

 

Kansas Weighs Protecting Rights of Children, Families in Education, by Jonathan Butcher. “The proposal includes key provisions being considered in many other states. For example, the Kansas proposal allows parents to ‘be informed of and inspect’ the materials that educators use in the classroom. That way, parents can talk with their children about controversial topics before, during, and after they complete an assignment. Families can also object to material that is not age-appropriate for children.” Read more here.

 

Colorado Legislature Creating New Way for People to Become Parents While Denying Best Interests of Children, by The Daily Citizen. “This bill does nothing less than facilitates the legally streamlined creation of intentionally motherless or fatherless parentage of children so that same-sex couples can merely ‘assign’ a child’s other ‘parent’ based on the desires of the adults involved, rather than the fundamental needs of the child. Be sure, this is a very radical step in family law that should be resisted. If two women or two men propose they are the parents of a child, this bill would establish them as legal parents without question from anyone. All that is needed is the declaration of the two adults.” Read more here.

 

Distorting Florida’s Parental Rights Bill, by Jerry Newcombe. “…[G]ender dysphoria is a form of depression. And while puberty blockers and sex reassignment surgeries may provide temporary relief, they don’t address the root issue: ‘When you don’t like who you are at the core of who you are, you’re depressed about who you are.’ Why should parents, who are responsible for their children’s education and well-being, have to pick up the pieces as our society recklessly destroys these little children and their futures?” Read more here.

 

Including Rachel Levine Among the Women of the Year Is an Affront to Women and Girls, by Nicole Russell. “USA Today is suggesting that the achievements of Levine, who spent over 50 years living as a biological male, are the same as biological women and their unique attributes. It is wholly unfair to biological women… Women did not work tirelessly to achieve the right to vote, and then the right to work on equal terms, and then the right to get a credit card without a cosigner just so transgender females could best them in track, on the swim team, and in high-ranking government positions.” Read more here.

 

Why the Act of Marriage (Still) Makes a Difference, by Harry Benson. “So do we need marriage? Are the poor leading the way by abandoning it? Are the rich hanging on to marriage as some kind of status symbol? Is marriage permanently dented, or is it just going through a bad patch? What I want to do is restore your confidence in marriage. I want to reassure you that the statistics continue to show that families who marry tend to have better outcomes, both adults and children, both rich and poor alike.” Read more here.

 

Canada’s Crackdown on Religious Freedom Is a Wake-Up Call for Americans, by Jorge Gomez. “Americans must confront a difficult question: Is a wave of religious hostility, tyranny and intolerance headed to the Land of the Free? The shocking truth is that similar and equally brazen violations are already happening in our nation. It’s no longer a dystopian fantasy to think of religious citizens being muzzled and kept from living out their faith. It’s an undeniable reality…” Read more here.

 

WHO Advises Telemedicine Abortions/Eliminate Conscience Protections for Doctors, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “With regard to conscientious objection by health care providers, the guidance recommends that it be restricted so as not to impose any barrier to accessing abortion… As the WHO continues to expand its pool of potential abortion providers from doctors to all levels of medical practitioners, the number of people seeking conscientious exceptions from involvement with abortion also increases. This guidance also ‘suggests’ that pharmacists and pharmacy workers should be included among abortion providers.” Read more here.

 

Marie Stopes International and Abortion, Inc., by Hayden Ludwig. “That report also found that Marie Stopes doctors were pressuring female patients to undergo abortions, often ignoring or bulk-signing the pre-consent forms required by British law… A year later, government inspectors discovered that Marie Stopes staff were ‘encouraged’ to suggest patients undergo abortions because it was ‘linked to their performance bonuses,’ a feature the inspectors called the group’s ‘cattle market culture.’” Read more here.

 

Students Are Being Groomed by Teachers to Embrace LGBT ‘Glitter Families’ in Place of Parents, by Jonathon Van Maren. “LGBT activists will claim that … kids identifying as LGBT face genuine danger from their own families. Government employees, in other words, care more about these children than their parents do, and as such those employees must be both instructed and enabled to protect children from their families. Combine this with omnipresent LGBT sex education beginning in the earliest grades and increasingly presenting children the option of changing genders, and the results are inevitable.” Read more here.

 

Florida Law Is Pro-Freedom, Not Anti-LGBTQ, by Star Parker. “Anyone who wants to publicize this as, ‘Don’t say gay’ should also publicize it as saying, ‘Don’t say straight.’ Because that’s what it’s about. Removing discussion about sexual orientation from classrooms of toddlers. But for LGBTQ activists, anything not actively promoting their agenda is taken as opposition. Therefore, for them, freedom, and the tolerance and neutrality that it requires, is by definition anti-LGBTQ.” Read more here.

 

Americans Across the Political Spectrum Need to Say No to Men in Women’s Sports and No to Corporate Identity, by Kara Dansky. “Most legacy media outlets also misleadingly use language designed to confuse us all. Media usages of phrases such as ‘transgender athlete,’ ‘transgender children,’ and ‘transgender prisoner’ and of wrong-sex pronouns are deliberately designed to manipulate readers into questioning their own sense of what is true. Don’t let them get away with it. Every time anyone uses language that obscures the truth, we contribute to the lie. Let’s all commit to using language that is grounded in material reality instead.” Read more here.

 

New Media Outlet Examines the Evidence for ‘Gender Medicine,’ by Bernard Lane. “Maybe the gender clinics could start a program for new referrals, matching them up with young adult ‘detransitioners’ who have stopped taking hormones and reclaimed their birth sex. Those detransitioners might tell the would-be transitioners that high hopes for medical treatment, especially for gender medicine with its weak evidence base, can be disappointed in practice, leaving a patient with side effects and regret.” Read more here.

 

When It Comes to Minor Transition, Gender Activists Leave Lawmakers Little Choice, by Debra Soh. “As someone who supports transitioning in adults and is in favor of personal autonomy, in an ideal world, banning something would not be my preferred line of defense. But I have seen the extent to which trans ideology’s unscientific tentacles have woven their way into medical, educational, and scientific organizations. I am highly skeptical that activist groups responsible for these changes will ever consider quitting while they are ahead.” Read more here.

 

Progressive Group Slammed for Creepy Attack on Florida’s Parental Rights Bill, by Tim Meads. “The progressive group ‘Together Rising’ is being slammed for its creepy attack on Florida’s ‘Parental Rights in Education’ bill and for its point-blank admission that they view other people’s kids as something society should control. While it may seem like a new development, observers have been warning for several years the Left’s assault on the traditional family unit is explicitly linked to indoctrinating children with their progressive political agenda.” Read more here.

 

By Any Other Name, by Helena. “It’s understandable that any young person exposed to this kind of belief system would grow to deeply resent being white, ‘cis,’ straight, or (biologically) male. The beauty of gender ideology is it provides a way to game this system, so that you can get some of those targets off your back and enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded youths. …[I]t’s as easy as putting a ‘she/they’ in your bio. Instantly you are transformed from an oppressing, entitled, evil, bigoted, selfish, disgusting cishet white scum into a valid trans person who deserves celebration and special coddling to make up for the marginalization and oppression you supposedly now face.” Read more here.

 

Maryland Legislature Considers Sick Bill That Could Legalize Infanticide Up to 28 Days After Birth, by Olivia Summers. “…[T]he bill also proposes a revision of the fetal murder/ manslaughter statute that would serve to handcuff the investigation of infant deaths unrelated to abortion. In other words – this bill will effectively legalize infanticide… And it gets worse. Because the language that is used is without clear definition, the bill could prevent any investigations into the death of infants at least seven days AFTER their birth and may extend to infants as old as four weeks!” Read more here.

 

Here’s Why Florida’s Anti-Grooming Bill Is Necessary, by Kaylee McGhee White. “The legislation is really an anti-grooming bill meant to protect young children from coercive leftist theories on gender and sex. …[L]aws like the one being proposed in Florida are not overreactive or irrelevant but necessary. There are people out there, like Robertson and Turner, whose primary goal is to indoctrinate and sexualize young children, and they view the classroom as the perfect place to do both. Florida’s bill would make sure they’re allowed nowhere near it.” Read more here.

 

Trans Activists Funded by Big Pharma Push Biased Research Promoting Medical Transitions for Children, by Laurel Duggan. “A … comprehensive review of nine studies failed to find evidence that hormonal therapy and puberty blockers were helpful. The review pointed out common flaws in transgender treatment research, such as confounding variables and bias resulting from observational studies that lack control groups. Yet the media has widely publicized studies funded by pharmaceutical corporations and activist groups which claim to find that ‘gender-affirming’ medical care … is good for kids’ mental health.” Read more here.

 

Activists Hosting ‘Sex-Ed Summer Camp’ for Children as Young as 7-Years-Old, by Rebecca Downs. “Another answer confirms that children will see condom demonstrations. ‘At this age, kids are primed for level-headed learning. They are information-gatherers. There is no shame or ickiness associated with using bandaids and that same philosophy is applied to condoms and other barriers in this body-positive curriculum,’ the explanation reads.” Read more here.

 

Colorado Leftists Want to Legalize Abortion Up to Birth, by Zachary Faria. “Colorado has no limits on abortion, but that apparently is not good enough. Colorado Democrats are advancing a bill to codify its lack of abortion restrictions and to prevent unborn children from having independent rights under state law. According to Axios, the bill is ‘a first step toward asking Colorado voters to approve a constitutional protection on the 2024 ballot.’” Read more here.

 

Actually, Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill Is Common Sense, by Tom Joyce. “Woke gender ideology denies reality. People are male and female… Meanwhile, concepts such as nonbinary, genderqueer, and other fringe genders don’t belong in the classroom at that age. Telling children young enough to believe in Santa Claus that they might not be a boy or a girl and that they can pick their gender is a great way to confuse young children.” Read more here.

 

Florida and Texas Are Right to Fight Back in the Transgender Debate, by the Editors of National Review. “Beyond grade three, the bill allows for gender ideology to be taught so long as it is ‘age-appropriate.’ But ‘age-appropriate’ according to whom? Is there ever an appropriate age to tell a child that puberty may be optional? Discussing varieties in human sexuality and identity with older children is one thing, but some ideological creeds – gender ideology and critical race theory among them – are so dubious and divisive that they ought to be kept out of the classroom.” Read more here.

 

The FDA Should Follow England – and the Science – on Mail Order Abortion, by Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and Tessa Longbons. “Without direct, in-person consultation between a pregnant woman and a medical professional prior to chemical abortion, not only is it difficult to diagnose serious risk factors such as an ectopic pregnancy, but the door is left wide open for vulnerable women and girls to be bullied or physically forced into an unwanted abortion. Unfettered and unfiltered access to abortion pills dramatically reduces the possibility of detection and deterrence.” Read more here.

 

Biden Uses International Women’s Day to Promote Abortion, by Alexandra Desanctis. “In his official statement marking yesterday’s celebration of International Women’s Day, President Biden lauded his administration’s efforts to assist women, including ‘a whole-of-government effort to protect reproductive rights.’ It’s difficult for progressives to imagine celebrating women without, in the same breath, calling for more abortion.” Read more here.

 

Fighting Abortion Now Requires Fighting Americans’ Increasing Hatred of Children, by Brenna Lewis. “Along with the rise of the term ‘childfree’ (reducing the idea of children to burdens), Pew is finding that an unprecedented number of Americans don’t plan to have children for no reason other than that they don’t want them. The study, released in November 2021, found that a whopping 44 percent of childless 18- to 49-year-olds said they’re not too or not at all likely to have children.” Read more here.

 

Utah Governor Caves to the Left’s Radical Gender Ideology, by Kaylee McGhee White. “The contents of pro-women’s sports legislation and how to best preserve equal access to competition are certainly up for debate. But the fundamental principle of these bills, the belief that women’s sports and female athletes deserve protection, must never be compromised. By refusing even to consider Utah’s bill, Cox betrayed this principle and proved he cannot be trusted to defend women’s rights against the radical gender ideology that would undermine them.” Read more here.

 

The New York Times Misleads on Texas Abortion Trends, by Michael J. New. “…[A] closer look at the Times article indicates there is much less to their claims than they suggest. First, even taking the data at face value, the increases in mail-order abortions and out-of-state abortions fail to totally offset the overall decline in the abortion rate. Even the Times admits that the heartbeat law is preventing hundreds of abortions every month and has saved thousands of lives since it took effect.” Read more here.

 

On International Women’s Day, Oppose the Violence of Abortion, by Sarah Michalak. “Worldwide, abortion is used aggressively against precious preborn baby girls. A five-year study reported in 2019 found ‘(n)early 23.1 million females are missing due to sex-selective abortions in 12 Asian and European countries.’ This is a failure on the part of our global society and something that this year’s International Women’s Day theme of ‘gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow,’ could highlight, given America’s track record.” Read more here.

 

Wisconsin School District: Parents ‘Not Entitled’ to Know Kids’ Gender Identity, by Matt Margolis. “The latest outrage comes out of the Eau Claire School District in Wisconsin, where a slide shared during a staff development training session instructed teachers that parents are ‘not entitled’ to know their kids’ gender identity. The slide … says the following: ‘…Remember, parents are not entitled to know their kids’ identities. That knowledge must be earned. Teachers are often straddling this complex situation. In ECASD, our priority is supporting the student.’” Read more here.

 

Abortion Industry Promotes ‘Missed Period Pills’ so Women Won’t Know If They Were Pregnant, by Carole Novielli. “In an attempt to normalize abortion by using deceptive euphemisms, the abortion industry is now referring to the use of mifepristone and/or misoprostol (the same drugs as are used in the abortion pill regimen) as ‘missed period pills’ or ‘later period pills.’ The drugs are being sold to women without a confirmation of pregnancy, … allowing them to escape the knowledge of whether or not they killed their own preborn children.” Read more here.

 

Senate Democrats Fail to Codify Roe v. Wade, by Lisa Correnti. “Prior to the vote, Schumer justified his actions saying that ‘abortion has never been more at risk’ and that every American deserves to know where his or her Senator stands on the issue. Schumer’s statement confirmed suspicions that the vote was called with the November mid-term elections looming and the abortion lobby demanding to know where Senators stand before they direct election funding.” Read more here.

 

The Latest Body Mutilation Fad Pushed by Trans Activists Is Not ‘Life Saving,’ It’s Dangerous to Human Health, by Jonathon Van Maren. “Breast binders are essentially wraps that flatten the breasts of girls who wish to identify as boys so that they can ‘present’ as male. Binders can cause back pain, shoulder pain, chest pain, shortness of breath, and fractured ribs – especially if used long-term… If girls use breast binders as they enter puberty, the results are often irreversible. But breast binders are all the rage right now, promoted by trans vloggers and YouTube stars as well as activists.” Read more here.

 

In Wisconsin, a Fight Over Whether Children Belong to the State or the Parents, by Andrea Widburg. “In the massive battle shaping up across America, public school districts are metaphorically carrying a banner saying ‘All your children are belong to us’ [sic] in their battle against parents over children’s gender (not to mention racial issues). What’s happening in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, exemplifies this battle and can be summed up in a sentence from a staff training session: ‘[P]arents are not entitled to know their kids’ [gender] identities. That knowledge must be earned.’” Read more here.

 

Don’t Buy Media’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Distortions About Florida’s Parental Rights Bill, by Jarrett Stepman. “This provision is a response to what’s happened in some schools, where a student is pushed by school officials to undergo a gender transition without the permission or knowledge of parents. There may have been a time and place where such restrictions on sexually explicit content for young children didn’t have to be addressed, but the reality is that more of such content is getting injected into children’s books and other materials.” Read more here.

 

What We Learn From Democrats’ Failure to Pass an Extreme Abortion Bill, by Nicole Russell. “The legislation would have repealed all existing state laws that specify abortion restrictions or protect the unborn in some way, endangering laws that ban late-term abortions… The bill also would have prohibited future laws regulating abortions and the abortion industry. This is especially gut-wrenching, because as technology has improved and our understanding of the human body has grown, abortion laws have reflected such progress.” Read more here.

 

The Moral Atrocity of ‘Top Surgery,’ by Miriam Grossman. “Increasingly, confused girls with mental health issues are lining up to have their breasts removed, erroneously believing my colleagues who tell them the operation will alleviate their emotional pain and allow them to emerge as their authentic selves. Girls as young as 13 are having ‘top surgery,’ a euphemism for a bilateral mastectomy – the removal of both breasts – in order to create, as gender surgeons put it, a ‘masculinized’ chest.” Read more here.

 

Joe Biden Shamelessly Promotes Abortion as ‘Advancing Liberty and Justice’ and ‘Access to Health Care’ in SOTU, by Rebecca Downs. “During his State of the Union address, President Joe Biden delved into the abortion issue, though he didn’t mention it by name. Instead, he framed it as ‘rights of women’ and ‘health care…’ Referring to the abortion procedure, which ends the life of an unborn child as being about ‘advancing liberty and justice’ as well as ‘protect[ing] access to health care’ and ‘continu[ing] to advance maternal health care for all Americans,’ drew outrage.” Read more here.

 

Performing ‘Sex-Change Procedures’ on Kids Is Child Abuse, Texas’ Attorney General Says. He’s Right, and I Should Know, by Walt Heyer. “Adults should not subject children to surgery that removes healthy organs and causes sterilization, nor endanger them with drugs to block normal onset of puberty or to induce cross-sex appearance. Adults should protect children’s long-term health and well-being, not experiment with it… The first step in helping anyone, especially children, is to see their troubles through an appropriate lens, free from political ideology.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Takes Another Important Religious Freedom Case, by Nicole Russell. “…[S]he does not agree with gay marriage due to her orthodox religious beliefs. So, she would have to decline to design websites in celebration of such a marriage… Thankfully, the First Amendment was designed to protect just such beliefs. Anti-discrimination laws were formed to prevent discrimination, to keep malicious bigots in check. But Colorado’s language is such that it turns the First Amendment on its head. It now makes the people who embrace the most traditional beliefs the ‘bigots.’” Read more here.

 

Doubling of LGBT-Identifying Americans Is Due to Trendiness, by Debra Soh. “According to the report, the LGBT percentage of the total population has doubled from 3.5% to 7.1% in approximately 10 years. As one could reasonably expect, LGBT self-identification was more common among young people. For example, about 11% of millennials and 21% of Gen Z identified this way. That’s right, roughly 1 in 5 Zoomers says they are gay or transgender. This is in contrast with only 4% of Gen Xers and 3% of baby boomers.” Read more here.

 

Secret Teacher Portals Reveal ‘Pronoun Surveys,’ ‘Black Lives Matter Curriculum.’ Here’s What I Found in the Leaked Content, by Kenny Xu. “Preschool-aged children are highly impressionable, and using books like ‘Sparkle Boy’ and ‘When Aidan Became a Brother’ are bound to create an unhealthy focus on one’s own sexuality at an extremely vulnerable age. It is quite conceivable that a normal 5-year-old girl, upon reading one of these books, suddenly decides she is trans based upon a classroom experience.” Read more here.

 

U.S. Senate Considers Abortion-on-Demand Bill, by Lisa Correnti. “The bill passed the House of Representatives in September by a vote of 218-211. The abortion lobby has pressed Senate Democrats to take up a bill in response to a Supreme Court decision that may restrict abortion rights. The bill would roll back nearly all state laws that restrict abortion enacted over the past 40 years, including laws on parental notification, informed consent, late term abortion, dismemberment abortion, telemedicine abortion and conscience protection.” Read more here.

 

Colombian High Court Says Aborting Disabled Children Can Never Be a Crime, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “The high court said it is through abortion that women, children, and ‘gestating persons’ exercise their sexual and reproductive freedom and put into practice their own individual system of beliefs and values. The reasoning in the Court’s decision follows the lead of the legislature of Argentina and the Supreme Court of Mexico, both of which over the last two years recognized abortion as a right for all ‘gestating persons.’ It remains unclear if this refers only to women who identify as men or also men who identify as women.” Read more here.

 

Schools Using ‘Transition Closets’ to Hide Children’s Transgender Identity From Parents, by Jeff Charles. “…[E]ducators are using ‘Transition Closets’ as a means of helping students dealing with gender dysphoria to conceal the issue from their parents. The practice allows them to socially transition to the opposite sex without their parents’ knowledge… Transition Closets appear to be present mostly on university campuses at the moment. However, they could be far more ubiquitous in K-12 schools than it seems. The secretive nature of the project could mean it is flying under the radar at other schools.” Read more here.

 

The War on Parents Continues, by Ben Shapiro. “Florida is now considering a bill, the Parental Rights in Education bill, that would restrict primary schools from indoctrinating children on matters of sexual orientation or gender identity and would require schools to inform parents about minors who begin identifying as LGBTQ in school. None of this should be controversial… It is parents who care most about their children, not school administrators; it is parents who shape the values and choices of their children.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Stealth Expansion of Abortion Policy Is a Losing Battle, by Jeanne Mancini. “What this means in plain English is that HHS will attack all existing federal constraints on abortion and generally make life more difficult for pro-life people. Biden’s Food and Drug Administration has already eliminated restrictions on mail-order abortion pills that too often have serious side effects. If Becerra and Biden get their way, many more safeguards will fall. Conscience protections will also be weakened or eliminated altogether.” Read more here.

 

The Violence Against ‘Individuals’ Act, by Alexandra Desanctis. “Under the House bill, legislation that was originally intended to protect women from domestic violence now includes ‘transgender’ and ‘gender non-conforming’ individuals in addition to biological women… The bill would allow biological men who identify as women not only to be placed in women’s prisons but also to seek shelter in the same housing as vulnerable women fleeing abuse, and it doesn’t grapple with the obvious complications this poses in the context of domestic violence.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Life Measures Sweep the Nation as Three More States Move to Protect Life in the Womb at 15-Weeks Gestation, by Nicole Hunt. “If Roe v. Wade is overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court this term, Arizona law would automatically outlaw abortion in the state. However, if the Supreme Court stops short of overturning Roe and instead only upholds Mississippi’s 15-week restriction on abortion, pro-life lawmakers in Arizona want to have this law in place to protect pre-born babies at 15-weeks gestation.” Read more here.

 

The Gender Cult Marches On, by Abigail Shrier. “The Gender Ideologues and Critical Race Theorists care little for the building blocks of traditional education – math, reading, writing, history. Traditional subjects are viewed primarily as vehicles for advancing their agenda, time slots into which propaganda must be inserted. The activists are in the process of commandeering every part of the school day and numberless impressionable American minds. They wreak identity confusion in our young and teach kids to hate their bodies and their country.” Read more here.

 

The Realities of Life and the Lies of Abortion, by Kathryn Lopez. “The Times wants you to believe that because the heart of a 6-week-old fetus isn’t fully developed, it’s beat doesn’t count. It’s ‘only a primitive tube of cardiac cells that emit electric pulses and pump blood.’ The piece contends: ‘The consensus among most medical experts is that the electrical activity picked up on an ultrasound at six weeks is not the sound of a heart…’ You don’t have to be a doctor to find this absurd.” Read more here.

 

NYT Science Reporter Flunks on the Science of Transgender Athletes, by Zachary Faria. “Ghorayshi’s piece goes on to cover the typical ‘straight news’ structure of a piece on transgender athletes, claiming that ‘some people’ think it is unfair that men compete against women while other people are worried about ‘inclusivity.’ At one point, the piece cites the director of the ‘Adult Gender Identity Clinic’ in London as saying that biological men may even have a disadvantage in some women’s sports – which sports that would be, exactly, isn’t immediately clear.” Read more here.

 

How a Trial in Finland Could Have Worldwide Effects on Government Persecution of Religion, by Joy Pullmann. “It’s not clear Finland’s hate crimes law even bans controversial speech, but Finland’s top prosecutor is arguing that it does. If the prosecutor wins the case, it would mark an unprecedented expansion of identity laws that exist in most European countries, many U.S. cities and states, and that U.S. Democrats are trying to make a nationwide law in The Equality Act… The charges against the two Christians include an attempt to criminalize statements they made years before the law being used to prosecute them passed.” Read more here.

 

Meet the Sex Shop Founder Who Is Grooming Children Through Books in School Libraries, by Spencer Lindquist. “It isn’t a fluke that a leftwing sex shop founder has been propped up as an authority on sexuality, with direct access to children. Media and education institutions, alongside several leftwing activists, have helped mainstream such fringe beliefs. The author is praised because of, not in spite of, the extremism of his sexual worldview. …[T]he author pointed out that some of his critics believe that he is ‘warping people’s ideas of gender.’ He flatly responded, ‘Maybe I am.’” Read more here.

 

EU Increases Abortion Funding, Demands Abortion Loyalty, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “…European leaders have made it clear that opposition to abortion will not be tolerated among their own members. When Maltese politician Roberta Metsola was elected president of the European Parliament, she had to give assurances that she would promote the parliament’s position which she characterized as ‘unambiguous’ in favor of abortion. Prior to that Metsola had been an outspoken pro-lifer.” Read more here.

 

Planned Parenthood Celebrates ‘National Condom Week’ With Lies, by Ruth Institute. “Even Planned Parenthood itself states on its website: ‘If you use condoms perfectly every single time you have sex, they’re 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. But people aren’t perfect, so in real life condoms are about 85% effective – that means about 15 out of 100 people who use condoms as their only birth control method will get pregnant each year…’ But that’s good business for Planned Parenthood. Most of its income comes from the 345,000 abortions it performs each year.” Read more here.

 

Cut the ‘Women’s Empowerment’ Line, Corporate Abortion. Real Help Doesn’t Hurt the Preborn, by Kristan Hawkins. “The abortion lobby sells women short, and then sells them an abortion. Claims that ‘women need abortion to succeed’ imply that women are too stupid and weak to succeed while parenting – they’re just silly damsels in distress who can’t be trusted to handle career AND family. In any other setting but an abortion vendor’s office, that kind of misogyny could get you canceled… Abortion hurts women. It can never deliver the one thing it promises – an end to problems. All that’s ended is a child’s life.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Activists’ $3.7 Billion Blowout, by Hayden Ludwig. “For evidence that the abortion industry is perhaps the single most powerful player on the left, look no further than its mountains of cash. In 2020 alone, pro-abortion activists raked in a stunning $3.4 billion and spent nearly $3.8 billion. That is quite a leap from the $1.9 billion the industry spent in 2019 – undoubtedly a consequence of the huge amount of money it spent on the 2020 election. It is a stunning display of wealth and illustrates the abortion industry’s enormous impact on our politics.” Read more here.

 

Kids as Young as 13 Are Crowdfunding ‘Sex Change’ Surgeries to Chop Off Their Body Parts, by Jonathon Van Maren. “Over the last few years, an entire industry aimed at providing transgender accessories to children has sprung up to meet – and drive – the demand for gender-bending supplies. Children hooked on the idea of changing genders through peer contagion or Internet trans celebrities can order ‘breast-binders,’ which flatten the chest, or ‘packers,’ which girls use to ‘present’ as having a penis, online without their parents’ knowledge… Now, a Daily Mail report indicates that children are crowdfunding their sex change surgeries online.” Read more here.

 

Finnish Christian on Trial for Quoting the Bible on Twitter: ‘God Is Working,’ by Joy Pullmann. “Rasanen and Pohjola are being prosecuted for stating basic Christian beliefs about sex and marriage. One of the three charges against Rasanen is for tweeting a picture of a Bible verse at Finland’s state church to criticize its co-sponsorship of a homosexual parade. ‘This is a very serious issue, because for Christians the Bible is the word of God, and there is no Christianity if you are not allowed to agree with the Bible,’ Rasanen said.” Read more here.

 

Does a Teacher Have a Right to Refuse to Call a Girl a Boy? Virginia’s Supreme Court May Decide, by Virginia Allen. “Vlaming said he tried to avoid using female pronouns with the student, but in the fall of 2018, he accidentally called the student ‘she’ in front of the class. The same day, Vlaming was called to his principal’s office and put on administrative leave. Superintendent Laura Abel said Vlaming could return to teach at West Point High if he would use male pronouns proactively to refer to the female student. Vlaming again explained that he could not in good conscience refer to a female as a male.” Read more here.

 

States Must Follow Florida’s Lead on Combating Fatherhood Crisis to Rebuild Strong American Families, by Chris Sprowls. “The fact is, one in four children live without a father figure in their home, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and nearly every negative outcome plaguing so many of today’s youth has been linked to their lack of a present and intentional father. Studies conducted by the National Fatherhood Initiative have shown that when children are raised in father-absent homes, they have a four-times greater risk of living in poverty and are twice as likely to drop out of high school. Six in 10 youth suicides come from fatherless homes.” Read more here.

 

California Schools Can Change Students’ Gender Categories Without Parent Consent, by Dov Fischer. “The California Teachers Association adopted a policy in January 2020 stating students should be able to access hormone therapy without parent consent, for the sake of ‘equity.’ …[M]inors can bill their parents’ insurance without their parents’ consent for gender-affirming care, which includes hormone therapy or ‘sex-change’ operations. Today’s accommodations could consign a child to lifelong ramifications – powerful hormone treatments, a lifetime of meds, inability to bear offspring, horrific and grotesque surgeries that irreversibly remove core body parts.” Read more here.

 

Arizona Legislators Propose Communist-Style ‘Community Schools,’ by Kimberly Ells. “The CDC’s ‘Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child’ model focuses on 10 components… Note that family falls dead last on the list. This is not a trivial accident. While ‘parental and family involvement’ are given robust lip-service in such initiatives, the main thing the community school model does is reduce the influence of parents and exponentially expand the role of the state-run school.” Read more hereEditor’s note: Though this specific bill in Arizona has reportedly been pulled, the article still contains valuable information about the promotion of “community schools.”

 

Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill Hits Target: Gender Ideology Harms Kids, by Jay Richards and Jared Eckert. “Lawmakers in the Sunshine State have introduced a new bill, Parental Rights in Education. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, that may be because big media have mislabeled it as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill. The bill would not ban the word ‘gay.’ Rather, it would protect children from teachers and other school officials who seek to sexualize and bombard them with gender ideology. In particular, it would require schools to be transparent with and get permission from parents for any health services students receive.” Read more here.

 

Transgender School Policies Are a Safeguarding Nightmare, by Stassja Frei. “Many parents will be shocked to learn that schools around Australia already have policies that allow male students to use the toilets, change rooms, and even overnight accommodation meant for girls. There is no requirement to gain consent from other students or to inform parents. What could possibly go wrong?” Read more here.

 

Could Biden Bypass State Laws by Placing Abortion Clinics on Federal Land? by Katie Yoder. “As the Supreme Court considers a case that directly challenges Roe v. Wade’s 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, legal experts are exploring strategies to protect abortion access. One such option proposes placing abortion clinics on federal land within states that restrict or ban abortion. The idea is that these clinics would fall under federal governance, rather than state law.” Read more here.

 

New York Times Falsely Claims Unborn Babies’ Hearts Aren’t Really Beating, by Steven Ertelt and Micaiah Bilger. “For decades, the scientific world has known that unborn children are living human beings whose lives begin at conception. Their hearts begin beating before any mother knows she’s pregnant, and their body begins to develop very quickly – well before abortions are routinely done to end their little lives. But, in its latest bit of scientific revisionism, the New York Times falsely claims unborn babies don’t have beating hearts. This new terminology is not based on facts or scientific evidence. It’s based on an agenda that supports abortion on demand.” Read more here.

 

Inside LGBTQ Picture Books for Young Children, by Ellie Gardey. “LGBTQ activists are brazen with the ideology they put into their children’s books. They intend to make the children reading their books become part of the LGBTQ movement, base their understanding of family, love, and relationships around the brainless rallying cry ‘Love is love,’ and see themselves as gendered, multi-gendered, or non-gendered spirits who happen to inhabit a body that may or may not match that spirit’s gender(s) — if it has a gender at all.” Read more here.

 

Christians Across Australia Furious Over Religious Bill Drama, by Matt Young. “…[T]he Australian Christian Lobby said the bills were ‘intended to help faith-based schools,’ but they now ‘do more harm than good.’ Five Liberal MPs joined with Labor and the crossbench on Thursday to extend the protections to gay students to those of diverse gender identity. The ACL said in doing so, ‘the loss of this protection would outweigh any benefits that could be obtained by the Religious Discrimination Bill.’” Read more here.

 

C-Fam Investigation Reveals Lack of Agreement and Nefarious Connections in UN Human Rights Mechanism, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “A C-Fam investigation reveals that the influence of these wealthy countries has also infiltrated the [Universal Periodic Review] at the level of regular citizens. Non-government stakeholders are invited to submit their own reports on countries’ human rights records. C-Fam has found local organizations submitting abortion and SOGI friendly reports are actually funded by the European Union, Canada and other powerful governments. These organizations present themselves as part of the grassroots.” Read more here.

 

Signs for Hope in Protecting Women’s Sports, by Debra Soh. “The issue of transgender athletes has been tucked under the guise of promoting human rights when many transgender people are in fact furious at this activism. For example, activists will claim that transgender women are biologically female, or that transition bestows upon them a cervix… The more damage these activists do, the sooner change will be forthcoming. As organizations and individuals increasingly find the courage to challenge this ideology, many more will be emboldened to do the same.” Read more here.

 

Religious Discrimination Bill Passes Lower House Along With SDA Amendment, by Neil Foster. “The ‘presenting problem’ was seen to be the possibility that a faith-based school would expel a student on the grounds of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Leave aside the fact that as far as I am aware no religious school in Australia has ever done this. What s 38(3) provides is a statement that a religious school can operate in teaching and caring for students in accordance with its faith commitments, which is the very reason for its existence! To simply repeal it is, in my view, a bad move.” Read more here.

 

How Many LGBT Kids Commit Suicide? Not as Many as You Think, by Michael Cook. “So it is true that transgender youths commit suicide at a higher rate, although it is orders of magnitude less than the alarming reports in the media – and in Parliament. But is this to be attributed to the fact that they identify as trans? …[T]he Society for Gender-Based Medicine (SEGM) pointed out that trans kids often have other mental health conditions as well. ‘Adolescents referred to the GIDS differ in many other ways from their peers of the same age: they are more likely to suffer from depression and to be on the autism spectrum, for example. These conditions increase the risk of suicide,’ it says.” Read more here.

 

Parents, Do You Know What Your Kids Are Learning at College? Disturbing ‘Sex Week’ Events Underway Nationwide, by CBN News. “New Orleans’ Tulane University is hosting numerous Sex Week events, including discussions of fornication and polyamory. Students can even drop by the Department of Sociology’s table and play the ‘Wheel of Fornication.’ Another event is called ‘Sexy Bingo’ where students can ‘engage in conversations about sexuality and learn about safer sex practices, sexual anatomy, sexual behavior and preference, and pleasure.’ Billed as ‘not your grandparents’ bingo,’ winners will receive prizes that include sex toys.” Read more here.

 

Major British Newspaper Admits What Pro-Lifers Already Know: Back-Alley Abortions Are a Myth, by Jonathon Van Maren. “The Western media works to paint these countries not as family-oriented nations that love and value children, but as bitter hellscapes where untold millions of women die in back alleys. They never claim that they are seeking to legalize abortion for their own profit, … they always claim it is for the good of the people they are demanding accept it. No lie is too large not to find its way into print. This makes a recent correction by the British publication The Telegraph rather shocking — not because it got abortion numbers wrong, but because it bothered to admit it.” Read more here.

 

Trans Health Association Recommends Mental Health Assessment Before Teens Transition. The New York Times Isn’t Convinced, by Nicole Russell. “It’s still refreshing to see a paper like The New York Times acknowledge the myriad of problems with teens transitioning and publish the cautionary guidelines, but it didn’t exactly leave it at that. It worked pretty hard to go to bat for the transgender ideology that suggests the only way to handle gender dysphoria is to transition through surgery and hormones. This is unfortunate. Conservatives must continue to battle the media and reframe the topic.” Read more here.

 

Child Custody’s Gender Gauntlet, by Abigail Shrier. “Courts are … seeing a child who has a feeling of gender dysphoria as no different from one born with a cleft palate. From this perspective, the only relevant question in a custody dispute involving a transgender-identified minor is: When will you allow him to get the necessary surgery to fix his body? Once a court swallows gender ideology, in other words, judges will believe that the only thing left for a loving parent to do, after an adolescent announces a trans identity, is shuttle him to the doctors who will alter his body and contribute clapping-hands emojis to the photos he posts on Instagram.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Latest Proposal Would Force Insurers to Pay for Gender ‘Transition,’ by Jay Richards and Jared Eckert. “Behind ‘gender-affirming care’ is the hope of aligning the recipient’s body with his or her gender identity. Such ‘care’ … cannot achieve the impossible: to change someone’s sex with chemicals or scalpels. The Department of Health and Human Services rule … would displace biological sex as a criterion for medical care with a fluid and illusory notion of gender identity. This, in turn, would also serve as precedent for further policy changes elsewhere in the administrative state.” Read more here.

 

Vermont Plans to Enshrine Legal Abortions Right Up to Birth, by John Klar. “Vermont has long embraced this barbaric extremism with regard to the unborn. Its leftist legislature has steadfastly avoided acknowledging fetal personhood at any age, which leaves pregnant women gravely unprotected from domestic abusers who murder their unborn children — there is no Vermont recognition of these as homicides, even if the child is viable.” Read more here.

 

Do Critics of ‘Conversion Therapy’ Live in a Fact-Free Zone? by Michael Cook. “First, in 2022, what is ‘conversion therapy?’ Abusive violence no longer happens – at least not in the countries which are banning it. Second – and even more important – where is the peer-reviewed expert proof that ‘talking conversion therapy’ is harmful? … An article published this week in a leading peer-reviewed journal, Frontiers in Psychology, claims that there is none. American sociologist Paul Sullins states bluntly that ‘even for persons for whom SOCE has had no efficacy, there is no discernible psychosocial risk.’” Read more here.

 

Religious School Tells Parents It Will Apply Its Religious Beliefs, by Neil Foster. “Under Queensland law, the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld) says that detrimental treatment of people on various grounds is unlawful, including the grounds of ‘sexuality’ and ‘gender identity’ (see s 7). One area in which such discrimination is forbidden is ‘education’… However, there is an important question as to whether setting out moral principles which a school believes, while saying that enrolment decisions will not be made on the basis of the specific questions of sexuality or gender identity, amounts to a breach of the Act.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Ideology and the Rise of the Thought Police, by David Robertson. “Nicola Sturgeon denies, despite all the evidence, that there is any conflict between transgender rights and sex-based rights. Anyone who dares to question that is automatically labelled ‘transphobic…’ The irony and folly of the policy is seen when they argue that having everyone believing the same state doctrine is ‘crucial to promote diversity.’ It appears that we can believe and practise only what the government decrees.” Read more here.

 

Sex Offenders Are Laughing at Us When They Identify as Female, by Debra Soh. “Male violent offenders and rapists have been given special accommodations because they identify as women, and presumably, those in charge of these provisions are afraid of transgender activists. Has anyone stopped to ask how everyday transgender people feel about this? And what message does this send to victims and women? Really, I’m surprised that every single male offender hasn’t taken it upon himself to do the same.” Read more here.

 

Another Unhinged Professor Has Been Exposed as a Pedophilia Apologist, by Spencer Lindquist. “Let’s be abundantly clear: this is not a complicated issue. In fact, there can be no simpler issue. Pedophilia is evil. That’s it. We shouldn’t accept the notion that pro-pedophilia sentiments are valid ideas to be contended with in the marketplace of ideas by the use of rhetorical flourish or superior philosophizing. Illiberalism is no crime when your opponent uses bad-faith arguments to justify moral atrocities that target the most vulnerable among us, victimizing them in ways they can’t even comprehend.” Read more here.

 

The Truth About My Parental Bill of Rights, by Greg Abbott. “Texas parents have every right to know what is being taught to their children, and under my plan, we will expand parents’ access to the course curriculum and all material available in their child’s school… We must protect them from obscene content while they are in the classroom. My plan would ensure that any educational personnel convicted of providing minors with pornographic materials will lose their educational public credentials and state licensing, forfeit their retirement benefits, and be placed on the ‘Do Not Hire’ list.” Read more here.

 

College Professors Who Promote Pedophilia, by Michael Brown. “This begs the question, were other professors totally unaware of his views? Did no administrators know about it? Did no students ever complain? Was the university totally in the dark? What Kershnar and Russell advocate is monstrously evil. The fact that they could do it for decades as paid professors shaping the views of our children is mind-boggling and sickening.” Read more here.

 

There Is No Such Thing as a Pregnant Man, by Christopher Tremoglie. “Such propaganda occurred late last week when it was revealed that Apple’s latest software update, iOS 15.4, included a ‘pregnant man’ emoji. Obviously, the powers that be at Apple are trying to normalize such lunacy in the hope that there are enough stupid people willing to be bullied into accepting it… I empathize with the internal anguish of someone who longs to belong to the opposite sex. But I will not accept fiction as fact. Men cannot have babies. They cannot be pregnant. No one who respects the truth or science can ever accept such lies.” Read more here.

 

Schools Conspire With Outside Groups Behind Parents’ Backs to Counsel Kids on Myriad Gender Choices, by Brenda Lebsack. “In the elementary school where I teach, we have new mental health workers being hired right out of college… I asked, ‘If a kindergartner tells you he believes he’s both genders, how are you trained to deal with that?’ She responded, ‘To affirm whatever he says he is, including his pronouns.’ I said, ‘If the kindergartner says, “Please don’t tell my parents, because they won’t like this,” what are you trained to do?’ She said, ‘We must keep it confidential until children feel comfortable to “come out” publicly about their gender identity, and that includes parents, because we need our school to be a safe place.’” Read more here.

 

New Poll Shows Strong Opposition to Mail-Order Abortions, by Michael J. New. “…[T]his year’s Marist poll was unique because it was the first to ask about mail-order chemical abortion drugs. The survey found that 63 percent of respondents oppose new Biden administration FDA rules eliminating the requirement that women obtain chemical abortion drugs in person from a medical professional, allowing them instead to obtain them through the mail without an in-person appointment. That opposition to the new FDA rules was consistent across a wide range of demographic groups.” Read more here.

 

Does a Seattle-Area Coach Have a Prayer in His Supreme Court Case? by Salena Zito. “The protection of religious freedoms does not benefit just people of faith; it also protects the nonbeliever. The secular elite … don’t understand that notion, which is why they often will dismiss it, look down on it or mock it. That’s why watching the Supreme Court arguing Coach Kennedy’s case will be so compelling: It will open a window into how much regard people hold for their freedoms, as well as how the press covers it and how politics is affected by it.” Read more here.

 

Trans Athletes, the New York Times, and the Ivy League, by Dennis Prager. “Like virtually every other university in America, and every other Ivy League college, the University of Pennsylvania threw its women swimmers under the bus. Not only did it not side with the women swimmers, nearly all of whom, according to reports, felt cheated when Thomas beat them in every race they competed, but it had no reaction to Thomas displaying male genitals in the women’s locker room… Of course, neither Cornell nor Harvard defended their women either.” Read more here.

 

University of Pittsburgh Report Tries to Explain Away Barbaric Experiments With Aborted Babies, by Madeline Osburn. “Pitt and the lawyers they hired at HPM clearly have no intention of addressing the initial allegations or answering questions such as: Did Pitt facilities perform illegal partial-birth abortions or infanticide in operating a fetal kidney harvesting program? Instead, the report backfired, raising even more questions that lawmakers and taxpayers must demand answers to.” Read more here.

 

No One Benefits From Highly Inaccurate Prenatal Tests More Than Planned Parenthood, by Mary Szoch and Joy Zavalick. “Planned Parenthood’s website inconspicuously recommends that mothers discuss prenatal testing with their doctors in order ‘to make sure you’re healthy and that your fetus is developing normally.’ Of course, the abortion giant stands to gain from convincing mothers to receive prenatal testing that will incorrectly tell many that their child will be born with painful or life-threatening conditions.” Read more here.

 

Planned Parenthood Opposes Bill to Stop Coercing Women to Have Abortions, by Mike Fichter. “…Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates have attempted to downplay the significance of coerced abortions as a form of reproductive coercion. Who gets hurt in this strategy? Not only the innocent baby, who dies at the hands of an abortionist, but the mother, whose victimization may extend from the home front of domestic abuse, right into the local and global arenas of human trafficking. In other words, women and girls who are already victims of abusers, predators, and traffickers.” Read more here.

 

What Pro-Life Really Means, by Kathryn Lopez. “All life is ‘sacred and fragile,’ Cardinal Dolan said… And he challenged everyone present and listening to step up to the plate and support Walking With Moms in Need, an initiative of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. To combat the evil of abortion, we need more and more people showing what pro-life means: love for women and children, not violence. We need a culture where the alternatives to abortion are ubiquitous. This can be done. It must be. And we might just find some common ground along the way.” Read more here.

 

ACLU Opposes Transparency Law on Educational Materials, by Jonathan Turley. “Greater transparency on public education (like other government programs) would seem a good thing… School boards are elected by the voters who have a right and a need for such information… Parents have a say in how their public schools are run, which is why these boards [sic] positions are subject to elections. Yet, the ACLU is opposing greater transparency, declaring ‘Curriculum transparency bills are just thinly veiled attempts at chilling teachers and students from learning and talking about race and gender in schools.’” Read more here.

 

Why Accepting Child Transgenderism Will Pave the Way for Accepting Pedophilia, by Spencer Lindquist. “The push for childhood transgenderism is predicated on a perverse and extreme individualistic sentiment, specifically that children’s rights as individuals imply an autonomous ability to make irreversible decisions regarding their health… The dangerous claim that children can meaningfully consent to puberty blockers, hormone replacement therapy, or genital mutilation is … also leading our society down a sinister path towards accepting pedophilia. Here’s how.” Read more here.

 

NCAA, Leaders Are Deliberately Turning a Blind Eye to Injustices in Women’s Sports, by Chelsea Mitchell. “They used to call me ‘the fastest girl in Connecticut.’ But I couldn’t outrun an injustice… At the end of the race, it’s about biology, not gender identity. And no amount of testosterone suppression can change a male’s innate physical advantages, like bone structure and muscle mass. And fast as I am, I can’t outrun those advantages. Or the injustice that protects them. For saying that out loud, I’ve been branded by some as a sore loser and a hater.” Read more here.

 

Inter-American Court of Human Rights Decriminalizes Infanticide, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “The court’s sentence described the strict abortion laws of El Salvador as part of a pattern of systemic gender discrimination rooted in El Salvador’s pro-life laws and law enforcement protocols. The Inter-American Court ultimately told El Salvador to revise its infanticide laws, which currently allow the imposition of the full 30- to 50-year prison sentence foreseen in cases of homicide. Manuela had been sentenced to the minimum 30 years when she was found guilty of infanticide in 2008. But the court didn’t stop there.” Read more here.

 

Forcing Abortion on the World, by Katelyn Walls Shelton. “Officials at the UN and the WHO … are attempting to export abortion around the world. Conservative countries are being threatened: You either legalize and expand abortion access or forfeit your healthcare funding. Negotiations around women’s health at the UN often stall on the abortion issue. Ideological negotiators undermine advances in women’s health if unlimited abortion rights language is not included. And the women who would serve to benefit from these resolutions are collateral damage in the fight for total abortion rights.” Read more here.

 

As I Found Out With My Daughter, Not Even Catholic Schools Are Safe Havens From Gender Ideology, by Charlie Jacobs. “I asked if they were aware of the information being presented at Pride Student Union events, specifically the formal meetings on gender, or whether they had queried the faculty monitor, the club president, or any members. Neither Principal K nor Father B would answer that question, waving it off as if I had no right to be concerned. Yet, Father B told me that my daughter needed the club. He warned me that she might commit suicide without it, and said she needed a place to make friends.” Read more here.

 

No, California Should NOT Abolish Parenthood in the Name of Equity, by William Estrada. “Parental rights are a good thing. It is good for children to know their parents, to be raised by their parents, to be loved by their parents. It is good for children to grow up around their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings. It is good for society. Parental rights are the bedrock upon which civilization stands.” Read more here.

 

Truth About Abortion: Everyone Knows It’s a Baby, by Katherine Beck Johnson. “The justices inside the Beltway need to take a step back from their wonky legal arguments and take a minute to remember just what Mississippi is fighting for: the legal protection of life inside the womb. This isn’t some arcane property dispute where nothing more is at stake than esoteric legal doctrines spelled out in Latin. This is a case over the fundamental right to life and the ability to prevent the greatest civil rights abuse of our time: the legalization of killing our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.” Read more here.

 

NCAA’s Transgender Policy Change Proves It’s Losing the Debate, by Kaylee McGhee White. “These girls want what they are owed: a level playing field and a chance to compete and win. Whether the NCAA will admit it or not, the organization knows it has denied female athletes that chance by forcing them to compete against transgender opponents. Hence the policy change. NCAA officials would rather let the blame fall on individual sports organizations than own up to allowing the destruction of women’s sports by male competitors.” Read more here.

 

The Biden Administration Must Protect the Unborn From Bogus Prenatal Tests, by Ken Blackwell. “Have you ever listened to the news, and come across a story that really makes you angry? Some stories just touch a nerve. This recently happened to me, when I learned that expecting parents are being given bad information about the health and wellbeing of their unborn child. Worse, because of misleading test results, it seems some families may be terminating healthy pregnancies.” Read more here.

 

Canada’s War on Children, by Mia Ashton. “…[A]llowing teens to sacrifice their fertility and healthy body parts in the name of gender identity will soon be seen for what it really is: the worst medical scandal the world has ever seen. We’re in the eye of the storm right now, and we won’t be able to see the true scale of the catastrophe until it has passed. But once it has, and the masses of young adults facing a lifetime of regret are visible for all to see, everyone involved in Canada’s education system will have to accept their part of the blame for the damage done.” Read more here.

 

These Trans TikTok Videos Are Pushing Kids Over the Edge, by Anonymous Author. “I caution anyone who chooses to watch this documentary to use their discretion. It is truly shocking – but it is what our kids are freely able to access online. Every parent should watch it if they feel able. However, there should be no discretion for any politician, journalist, health professional or teacher who is pushing this harmful, abusive ideology to our children. Any who wish to utter one more word about ‘acceptance and inclusion,’ and about how ‘affirming’ medical transition is, should be forced to watch this documentary and imagine their own daughters walking around their homes, topless, sporting flat, scarred chests.” Read more here.

 

Conscientious Objection to Abortion Is at Risk in Europe, by Michael Cook. “Even if M. Macron took a holiday from logic, the law never does. And the logic of enforcing a right to abortion upon Europe leads inevitably to denying the right to conscientious objection. This issue seems to have escaped scrutiny by journalists. When the EP voted to support abortion, it also voted to force doctors to provide it… In short, if abortion is ordinary medical care, doctors must provide it. There’s nothing new about this deeply flawed and totalitarian argument, but it is chilling to think that it could be enforced across Europe.” Read more here.

 

Standing on Shoulders of Science to Turn Page on Roe v. Wade, by Bernadette Tasy. “The students on the campus were shocked when they learned that America allows abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. When presented with simple facts about the unborn at 15 weeks gestation and images of ultrasounds from both the 1970s and now, they, too, agreed that our country’s abortion laws – or lack thereof – are extreme. My generation and the generations that follow are standing on the shoulders of science and, ultimately, standing for the lives of the unborn.” Read more here.

 

The March for Life Just Took Place on Friday to Mark the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Could It Be the Last One? by Rebecca Downs. “For many pro-lifers, the March for Life is something of a tradition. However, this year could be different. The Court last month heard oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson, a case examining the constitutionality of Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which bans most abortions at 15 weeks. The decision is expected in June. Both sides of the issue have acknowledged that this could be the case where the Court overturns Roe. If so, 2022 could be the last March for Life, at least the one held in January.” Read more here.

 

The NCAA Drops the Ball on Protecting Women’s Sports, by Zachary Faria. “The NCAA has altered its policy for transgender athletes, but the change does little and still does not address the central problem — the clear, demonstrable, and unfair advantage that men have over female athletes. Much like the International Olympic Committee, the NCAA punted on its policy change. In fact, the NCAA simply copied the IOC’s homework, adopting the same sport-by-sport, case-by-case framework that dodges the central matter at hand.” Read more here.

 

False Positives for Genetic Disorders in Prenatal Testing Unacceptably High, by Tara Sander Lee. “The high false positive rate of prenatal genetic screening has profound implications for public health and clinical decision-making. Not only is this a life-or-death scenario for an unborn child based on the mother’s decision to continue the pregnancy or abort, but it also has larger implications for the population, diversity, and values of our society.” Read more here.

 

The Left’s Love for Abortion Blinds It to Abortion Alternatives, by Thomas Glessner. “The left’s criticism of Justice Barrett shows that they will uphold the abortion industry’s death-on-demand ideology over every other consideration. These apostles of abortion see it as a sacred rite. However, safe haven laws – if utilized by a mother considering abortion – are a win-win for all involved. The birth mother and the adoptive parents benefit from these laws. Additionally, the unborn child’s life is spared and given an opportunity to achieve his or her ordained purpose.” Read more here.

 

Protecting Unborn Children in a Post-Roe World, by Dr. Ben Carson, Marjorie Dannenfelser, Jim DeMint, Tony Perkins, and Kevin Roberts. “If the court relies on Roe to strike down the Mississippi law, it would be an unmitigated failure … to faithfully interpret the Constitution… Yet all of us in the pro-life movement would continue working hand-in-hand to do all we can to change the hearts and minds of the American people about abortion, because real change cannot happen until we have a culture that recognizes abortion for what it truly is: intentionally and violently ending the life of an innocent human being.” Read more here.

 

The Time to Overturn Roe v. Wade Is Now, by Todd Rokita. “Long gone are the days when promoters of “choice” touted the motto of “safe, legal, and rare.” Pro-abortion extremists now lobby for abortion on demand at any cost to women’s health and safety. Obviously, the abortion industry itself also pushes for the wholesale acceptance of the procedure – acting, perhaps, on the basis of a profit motive. Abortion is no longer promoted simply as a means of protecting vulnerable women but as a beneficial end in itself.” Read more here.

 

President Biden’s One Major Success in His First Year: Turning America Into an Abortion Haven, by Connor Semelsberger. “Although states and courts provide a check to Biden’s abortion extremism, the president still faces pressure from his base and his own vice president to go further. This administration has implemented abortion policies and installed pro-abortion personnel at a record pace. With three years left in this term, Biden is on track to quickly surpass the abortion records that took the Clinton and Obama administrations eight years to achieve.” Read more here.

 

End of the Roe v. Wade Era? by Star Parker. “Looking back over the last half century that abortion has been part of our national culture, it is difficult to imagine how anyone can see anything but damage that this decision has done to our nation and to our national soul… Surveying our national culture since 1973, I cannot identify a single cultural institution that is better. On the contrary, regarding our core social institutions, everything is uniformly worse. The American family is in far worse shape today than in 1973.” Read more here.

 

Why I’m Not Afraid to Bring More Children Into a Broken World, by Alexandra Davis. “Should we wait until the world is less ‘confused’ before having children? To say yes would mean basing a life-altering decision on a false premise: that utopia is achievable on earth. It is not… We are, and will always be, confused. The world is, and will always be, uncertain. Even though evidence on issues like climate change points to inevitable crises, calamity and chaos have always lurked in the shadows. Yet no global crisis of any magnitude justifies the life-altering decision to remain childless.” Read more here.

 

Against Transgender Opponents, Women Are Vying for Silver, by Mary Szoch. “When a biological man plays a woman’s sport, at least one woman loses every single time. The girl who comes in second to the biological male matters, and so does the girl who would have sat on the bench but instead watches from the stands. I lived the fairy tale of my team dancing our way to the national championship game. A man should not be able to take that fairy tale away – even from the girl at the end of the bench.” Read more here.

 

Preparing for Post-Roe America, by Kathryn Lopez. “We don’t want to put women in jail. We don’t want them to suffer or be alone. All too often, the pressures are too great for a woman to consider anything but abortion. But women are capable of amazing things when they find people who want to support them and help them make the right choice both for themselves and their child. We march for life not only to oppose abortion, but to celebrate the women who have made courageous choices to give life – to mother in challenging circumstances or choose adoption.” Read more here.

 

We Are Mothers. Here Are Our Reactions to ‘Woke’ Children’s Books, by Marguerite Bowling. “I’m excited to be in a new video that’s out today from The Heritage Foundation, featuring real-time mom reactions to ‘woke’ children’s books that have been read in public schools… We read ‘I Am Jazz,’ ‘Who Are You?: The Kid’s Guide to Gender Identity,’ and ‘My Princess Boy’ while offering our feedback, which was blunt at times.” Read more here.

 

A New Year’s Resolution for Maryland: Eliminate Human Trafficking, by Andrea Bottner. “…[T]he Hogan administration has allocated $58 million to support comprehensive anti-trafficking efforts across Maryland… Recently, The Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services expanded the Child Sex Trafficking Screening and Services Act Regional Navigator Program. This program puts child trafficking victims in touch with services that will help them get to safety and learn how to be self-sufficient in the future. The program operates in 10 jurisdictions across Maryland.” Read more here.

 

EU Court’s Power Grab Is Subverting Democracy and National Sovereignty, According to Legal Expert, by Daniel Deme. “In Koudelka’s view, supra-national institutions should not decide about cultural and ethnic questions that belong to individual states… These decisions belong to elected parliaments in each individual country. However, as supporters of child adoptions by LGBT couples are often unable to find sufficient support for their cause in stances in democratic elections, they are bypassing the democratic process via court cases.” Read more here.

 

When Talking About Birthrates and Babies, Why Are We Omitting Marriage? by Timothy P. Carney. “We should turn around our birthrate decline in this country. We should listen to every objection from the liberal feminists, the sociologists, and the childless millennials. But when we ask why people don’t have children today, we need to start by asking why young people get married less and later. The delay in marriage and retreat from marriage is perhaps the leading cause of falling birthrates.” Read more here.

 

Biden Nominates Pro-Abortion Lawyer to State Department Legal Post, by Alexis I. Fragosa, Esq. “Cleveland also complained that many individual members of the Commission … were known for their focus on religious freedom and ‘extreme positions’ on abortion and the homosexual/transgender agenda. Because the Department of State implements foreign assistance worldwide, … critics have also expressed concern over Cleveland’s pro-abortion bias coupled with Biden Administration’s recent signal that it intends to reinterpret the Helms Amendment.” Read more here.

 

WA Laws Now Allow Teen ‘Gender Reassignment’ Surgery Without Parental Consent, by Jason Rantz. “Many Democrats who support this kind of legislation try to silence critics by labeling them transphobic and intolerant… No, 13-year-olds aren’t mature enough at that age to determine they can handle a gender reassignment surgery. Unfortunately, unless a parent immediately and unquestionably accepts their kid’s feelings at the time, the Left deems them to be unfit parents. And they believe that if a child even suspects their parents might say no to a life-altering surgery, the child should have the right to move forward on their own.” Read more here.

 

False Positives for Genetic Disorders in Prenatal Testing Unacceptably High, by Tara Sander Lee. “The New York Times’ analysis reported that positive results on prenatal genetic screenings can be wrong up to 85% of the time… That isn’t a trivial matter. Mothers presented with the far too common false positive DNA results face emotional trauma and agonizing decisions. As reported by the Times, some mothers receive a false positive, have an abortion, and then learn too late that their babies carried no risk of disease at all.” Read more here.

 

Injury, Infertility, and Death From Chemical Abortions Are A-OK With the FDA, by Kristi Stone Hamrick. “Corporate Abortion is refusing to screen for the two, well-known risks of death with a widely available technology. Women have died when taking chemical abortion pills later in pregnancy or when they are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy (one that implants in a mother’s body, outside the womb). A simple ultrasound test can check for both, but why bother when the FDA lets you off the hook?” Read more here.

 

All Adrian Wanted Was a Family. Transgender Doctors Left Him Despairing and Sterile, by Walt Heyer. “For Adrian, the future it offered was a fraud. Nothing was said about his impending, permanent sterility, or the true burdens and impacts of having to take cross-sex hormones for the rest of his life. No effort was made to deal with the mental health issues detected and diagnosed by the provider’s own staff before clearing him for surgery. If this sounds like malpractice to you, it sounds like it to me, too.” Read more here.

 

Bereavement and Parental Leave After Abortion, by Alexandra Desanctis. “While it is certainly true that many women experience negative physical and mental consequences following an abortion procedure, this policy is discordant coming from those who support abortion. If we are to acknowledge that a mother and father are bereaved after an abortion, presumably something – indeed, someone – has been lost. And if we acknowledge that in every abortion someone is lost – intentionally done away with – then it makes little sense to ‘destigmatize’ the procedure and extend bereavement leave to those who have intentionally chosen to do away with their child.” Read more here.

 

The Sweet Taste of Freedom, by Lizzie Troughton. “We should be emboldened to assert that conscience still matters. Society around us may be changing at such a fast pace and those of us with conservative or religious perspectives can feel overwhelmed at times… Thankfully, this case tells us that we haven’t yet crossed the line where judges are compelling us to say things we disagree with; be that about sexuality, gender, or other matters that go against what we hold to be true. A right to expression includes a right not to hold certain opinions.” Read more here.

 

The Legalized Sexualization of America’s Young Children, by Marilyn Quigley. “Down the hall from Mr. Smith, the 10- and 11-year-olds review their lessons using [National Sexuality Education Standards] core expectations for elementary grades including the joys of masturbation and how hormone blockers help transgender children. Their vocabulary test includes gender identity, gender nonbinary and expansive, and lesbian, to name a few. The test covers differing behaviors of sexual intimacy and how same-sex couples can acquire children, such as in-vitro fertilization and surrogacy.” Read more here.

 

Despite San Francisco Chronicle Sermon, Parents Oppose Teachers Hiding LGBTQ Evangelism, by Julia Duin. “She heard from parents at the school where these women taught; parents who knew what the teachers were up to and had been complaining about it for some time. Someone else leaked to her a similar presentation – again via the CTA – about how to broach the subject of gender fluidity in classes for elementary school students. (Note: I just finished five years of part-time subbing – mainly for elementary school students – and the thought of introducing some of this stuff to anyone under fifth grade is crazy.)” Read more here.

 

International Abortion Groups Weigh Gains and Losses From 2021, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “Both MSI and IPPF characterized the past year as a patchwork of gains and losses at the national level. This indirectly points to the ongoing achievement of the global pro-life movement in blocking attempts to create an internationally recognized human right to abortion. While abortion groups insist that such a right exists, it remains a hollow assertion: longstanding global consensus holds that abortion laws are to be determined by national governments, and the legal changes held up by abortion groups as their greatest wins were all done at the national or subnational level.” Read more here.

 

As FDA Loosened Regulations on Chemical Abortion, Reports Indicate Women in India Are Suffering From Method, by Rebecca Downs. “Thanks to the FDA loosening regulations, women can acquire these pills online through the mail without a doctor confirming that they are even pregnant, are pregnant within the approved of timeframe, or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. Such a nonviable pregnancy develops outside of the uterus and is not treated through this method. If left untreated, it can kill a woman.” Read more here.

 

Leaked Biden Plan Would House Violent Men in Women’s Prison Cells, by Nathanael Blake. “In short, under this executive order, the federal government will house criminals based on subjective, self-declared ‘gender identity’ rather than biological sex. Male rapists, child molesters, and other sexual criminals will be allowed to live in women’s prisons… This move toward co-ed prisons will result in male sexual predators exploiting the system in order to abuse and rape female prisoners. We know this because it has already happened in places these proposals have been enacted.” Read more here.

 

Wake Up, America: Cultural Marxism Is ‘Identifying’ as Transgenderism, by Walt Heyer. “Hundreds of parents have written me about their school-aged and college-aged children suddenly announcing trans identities… Urging children along this path is child abuse. The transgender indoctrination starts young. Trans-affirming curriculum and storybooks plant seeds of gender confusion in children (aka ‘grooming’) as early as kindergarten by pushing the bogus idea that children can choose their gender. Many school policies require aiding and abetting children who think they may be the opposite sex.” Read more here.

 

Clarifying ‘Transgender Hate Speech,’ by Neil Foster. “Is it unlawful to say that ‘a trans woman is a man?’ Not according to the Appeal Tribunal in the Rep decision… While none of the relevant parties seem to have referred to religious reasons for their comments, the question of what can be lawfully said in public contexts about issues raised by the ‘gender identity’ debates has some importance for religious groups which take the view that religious texts teach that sex is determined at birth, not fluid, and not able to be changed.” Read more here.

 

Parents Push Indiana Legislature for Hearing on Toughest School Racism and Pornography Bill, by Joy Pullmann. “Parents around the state, like those around the nation, have found public schools and libraries introducing minors to explicit materials, such as books describing rape, masturbation, underage sex, and other obscene acts. Current Indiana law exempts public schools and libraries from penalties for exposing minors to obscene materials. Both HB 1040 and SB 167 would end that exception.” Read more here.

 

Biological Sex Is Being Redefined to Subvert Society, by Debra Soh. “…[I]f anyone has the potential to be female, this justifies the obsolescence of sex-based spaces and sports divisions and biomedical research that is actually relevant to women. To be clear, this ideology has less to do with the beliefs and priorities of everyday transgender people and everything to do with redefining words and reality to subvert society and promote wider activist goals. It is an indication of what is coming down the road. When the scientific process has been compromised, we are deeply in trouble.” Read more here.

 

The San Francisco Chronicle Ignores the Problem of Schools Hiding Information From Parents, by Zachary Faria. “Kelly Baraki and Lori Caldeira mocked the concerns of parents in their workshop about running gay and transgender clubs on campus. They talked about how they look at the Google search history of students to try and determine potential clubs members [sic] to recruit, and that they eavesdrop on students’ conversations with the same intent. And, most importantly, they emphasize that parents should be left in the dark… ‘What happens in this room, stays in this room,’ Caldeira said on a podcast.” Read more here.

 

‘Self-Care’ That Harms and Kills: The WHO’s Push to ‘Demedicalize’ Abortion, by Alexis I. Fragosa, Esq. and Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “In recent years, the World Health Organization (WHO) has increasingly advocated for the use of self-care in the field of ‘sexual and reproductive health and rights,’ including for abortion. Unlike other forms of self-administered health care, which seeks [sic] to balance the ability of patients to manage their own treatments and the need for and availability of medical professionals, the WHO is explicitly using the framework of ‘self-care’ to bypass legal restrictions on abortion and make access to it the highest priority.” Read more here.

 

The New Public School Orthodoxy, by Mark R. Schneider. “Sex and gender theory comes in many guises but is centered around the separation of biology from personal identity. This messaging begins in kindergarten, where children are sometimes exposed to cartoon instructional books… Teachers tell impressionable children, ‘Babies can’t talk, so grown-ups make a guess [about their gender] by looking at their bodies.’ This is followed in later grades with books like My Princess Boy and Jacob’s New Dress, and graphical tools like ‘The Gender Unicorn’ to cement the illusion that chromosomes and body parts are irrelevant.” Read more here.

 

Joy Reid Asks for Proof Porn Is in High School Libraries. Here It Is, by Ben Johnson. “When a Twitter reader asked if Reid had seen some of the pornographic material in public school libraries, Reid challenged her: ‘Can you name some of the titles you’re talking about and the offending passages? I highly doubt libraries are stocked with pornography, but happy to hear your intel.’ The user then named a number of books including Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts), Gender Queer (illustrated), All Boys Aren’t Blue, and Tricks. As of this writing, Reid has not responded.” Read more here.

 

USA Swimming Official Stands Up for Women’s Rights, by Kaylee McGhee White. “Millen is right. The women competing against Lia Thomas don’t stand a chance. Thomas has crushed every female athlete in competition, breaking multiple U.S. women’s swimming records. In one race, Thomas beat the second-place swimmer by 38 seconds. A video of the race shows Thomas lapping opponents several times. As I’ve written before, that’s like expecting a teenage girl to be able to hold a block against a 250-pound male linebacker. It’s absurd.” Read more here.

 

With Biden Support, UNFPA Steps Up Abortion Advocacy, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “Other panelists repeatedly referred to abortion activists as ‘human rights defenders.’ This, too, is an area in which UNFPA has sharply diverged from global consensus. The UN General Assembly adopted an important declaration on human rights defenders in 1998. Its official title refers to the protection of ‘universally recognized human rights and fundamental freedoms,’ which cannot be said to apply to a right to abortion or the redefinition of gender or the family as promoted by UNFPA and the UN’s human rights expert bodies.” Read more here.

 

Children Are Being Groomed With Gender Ideology, by Debra Soh. “There is zero science supporting the concept of gender fluidity. Science does, however, support the existence of rapid-onset gender dysphoria, an epidemic of adolescent girls and young women who suddenly announce their desire to live as male or ‘nonbinary’ despite having no previous history of gender dysphoria. In most cases, their decision stems from issues unrelated to gender identity… The idea that educators should ‘affirm’ a child’s gender not only oversteps parental boundaries but is unscientific.” Read more here.

 

The Left’s Gender Tyranny, by Betsy McCaughey. “Elementary school teachers are putting words such as nonbinary and transgender on the blackboard, even before kids have learned multiplication. But the Maine Department of Education reports that between 13% and 18% of public high school students say they’re ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual, or unsure’ of their gender. It’s no wonder when the curriculum programs them to doubt their identity. In school, it’s cool to be anything but heterosexual.” Read more here.

 

Kindergartner Claire Didn’t Want to Wear a Skirt One Day. Mom, NBC Now Call Her ‘Clark,’ by Jordan Boyd. “Other experts have warned that the hormones, puberty blockers, and surgical procedures gender-confused kids undergo can lead to sterility, severe dysfunction, and a myriad of health problems. These facts, unfortunately, aren’t stopping parents, schools, the progressive left, and corporate media outlets such as NBC from promoting transgenderism as a good thing that needs to be shoved down the throats of people as young as 5 years old.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Sanctions Mail Order Abortion. Here’s How the Move Endangers Women, by Melanie Israel. “So how does mail order abortion put women even further at risk? It is impossible for a prescriber who may not even be in the same town – or state – to rule out ectopic pregnancy without an ultrasound… Neither can a prescriber precisely date a pregnancy, meaning more women might be prescribed an abortion pill well past 70 days gestation (a serious risk itself, as the risks from a chemical abortion increase the farther along in pregnancy she is).” Read more here.

 

Texas Democrats Might Use Federal ‘COVID Relief’ Money to Fund Abortion, by John McCormack. “At the time, pro-life advocates and members of Congress warned that without the [Hyde Amendment] — the long-standing measure that prevents federal funding of abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, and when the mother’s life is endangered — there were several slush funds in the ‘COVID relief’ bill that could be used to fund elective abortions with federal tax dollars. The Houston Chronicle reports that Democratic officials in liberal Harris County, Texas, are now considering whether to do just that in response to the state’s law generally prohibiting abortion later than six weeks of pregnancy.” Read more here.

 

How Dare We Support the Chemical Castration of Children, by Michael Brown. “A related article reported that, ‘In one case, a girl who wished to become a boy at the age of 10 was put on a regimen of puberty-blocking drugs at the age of 11 by the hospital. Five years after the treatment, the effects of the hormone therapy are said to have resulted in osteoporosis and damaged the vertebrae in teen’s [sic] back, Swedish broadcaster SVT reported…’ How is this not child abuse?” Read more here.

 

Biden’s FDA Allows Deadly Abortion Drugs to Permanently Be Available by Mail Without In-Person Visit, by Rebecca Downs. “A woman first takes mifepristone, which starves her unborn child of nutrients. Then, 24-48 hours later, she takes misoprostol to cause contractions to expel the dead child. This method carries with it four times the complications of surgical abortions… In procuring the drugs by mail or online, a woman may not be sure of the safety or authenticity of the drugs. Without an exam, she may not know if she is under the gestational limit or is not experiencing an ectopic pregnancy.” Read more here.

 

To Fix a Cratering Birthrate, Stop Killing Your Children, by Bonnie Chernin. “The statistics are grim: in 2020, the Centers for Disease Control reported that the U.S. birth rate is plummeting and is the lowest it has been since 1909… Part of the population decline could have been avoided had abortion not wiped out 63 million preborn babies. It’s astonishing that people can talk about a demographic shift of the magnitude America is facing without including the tragedy of abortion. It isn’t just the 63 million people missing, but their children and the generations after them. That loss is incalculable.” Read more here.

 

The Religious Marriage Paradox: Younger Marriage, Less Divorce, by Lyman Stone and W. Bradford Wilcox. “The effect of cohabitation on marriage is indeed statistically significant (premarital cohabitation increases divorce probabilities by about 15%), but the biggest effect religion has on union stability isn’t about what happens once a woman is married, but more about her relationship choices before marriage – the fact that she did get married, rather than start a series of cohabiting relationships. To the extent that the effects associated with religious upbringing are causal, they show that religiosity could dramatically reduce women’s experience of relationship instability in early adulthood.” Read more here.

 

Women’s Sports Should Be Women Only, by the Editors of National Review. “Even if Thomas is in compliance with the NCAA rules that require testosterone-suppression treatment for one year for male-to-female athletes, this is still … insufficient at mitigating sex-based advantages that are years in the making and do not simply disappear with chemical or surgical interventions. Such policies fail on principle, in any case. As politically incorrect as it is to point out, there is no material difference between a man and a trans woman. This is not difficult. The athletes in women’s sports should be women only.” Read more here.

 

The Magic Fix for Family Life: Dinner Together, by Ida Gazzola. “Imagine if there was one simple thing parents could do for their children that would lead to the following results: better mental and physical health, higher self-esteem, less risky behaviour, better academic performance, better communication skills and a better relationship between parent and child. Twenty years of research has shown that this tool does, indeed, exist. It is the family meal.” Read more here.

 

Cross-Sex Hormones Are Steroids and Addictive, by Walt Heyer. “Gender clinics, now including Planned Parenthood, routinely prescribe cross-sex hormones on the first or second visit, and they neglect to disclose that steroids are addictive and distort one’s ability to make decisions. Steroid use makes people easy marks for the next step: surgery, such as mastectomy and genital reconfiguration, both of which mutilate healthy tissue.” Read more here.

 

The University of Pennsylvania Is Oppressing Females, by Christopher Tremoglie. “…[B]iological males should not be allowed to race as females and take opportunities away from women. As much as I empathize with Thomas for the mental and emotional struggles, I empathize with the female swimmers more. Thomas was a second-team All-Ivy League swimmer in 2018-2019. Yet this sick, twisted, maniacal philosophy would allow men to dominate women’s sports simply by identifying as a different gender. Sorry, but the emperor is wearing no clothes — it is offensive and insulting this is being allowed to occur.” Read more here.

 

Here Are Five False Pro-Abortion Claims Totally Refuted, by Mary Szoch. “The matter of an unborn child being a human being is not a ‘philosophical issue;’ it is a scientific fact. Furthermore, at no point in time do babies — born or unborn (or countless fully grown adults) — have the ability to ‘survive separately,’ so if Rickelman actually believes that the Court’s line where a person has the ability to ‘survive separately’ is the logical point before which a person can be killed — she is endorsing abortion, infanticide, and the right to kill anyone who cannot survive on their own.” Read more here.

 

What I’ve Learned Rescuing My Daughter From Her Transgender Fantasy, by Charlie Jacobs. “I managed to get all of her passwords to all of her social media accounts. What I saw was jaw-dropping. Almost everyone that she was conversing with was a stranger… The discussions on the Discord platform online involved fetishistic sexual conversations. Kids were sending each other erotica, including involving incest and pedophilia… I went nuclear. I took the phone and stripped it of all social media – YouTube, Instagram, Discord, Reddit, Pinterest, Twitter. I even blocked her ability to get to the internet. I deleted all of her contacts and changed her phone number.” Read more here.

 

SCOTUS Keeps Texas Heartbeat Law Alive, but Roberts Joins Court’s Left-Wing in Foreshadowing Pro-Abortion Dissent, by Jordan Boyd. “’Texas has employed an array of stratagems designed to shield its unconstitutional law from judicial review,’ Roberts wrote. Later he added that ‘these provisions, among others, effectively chill the provision of abortions in Texas’ and claimed that abortion is ‘a federal right.’ Roberts’ strong display of opposition to the Texas law prompted some to speculate whether he could be the fourth vote in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization to side with upholding abortion law and Roe v. Wade.” Read more here.

 

Democrats’ Massive Entitlement Plans Include Banning Christians From Government Childcare, by Joy Pullmann. “This means potentially forcing religious organizations to deny all theology that acknowledges basic truths about human biology and reproduction. Given the state of federal ‘nondiscrimination’ law, this could include forcing religious organizations to allow males into female bathrooms, hire transgender babysitters, and teach small children that men can turn themselves into women and that theologically condemned sex acts are in fact morally good.” Read more here.

 

Understanding the Left’s Plan to Codify Roe v. Wade Into Law, by Christian Mysliwiec. “’When the left says they want to ‘codify’ Roe v. Wade – a Supreme Court decision – into law, what they’re actually talking about is the misnamed Women’s Health Protection Act… The bill would endanger policies that disentangle tax dollars from abortion, conscience-protection laws, state-level pro-life laws such as informed consent requirements, reflection periods, parental involvement laws, and more.’” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court Did No Harm With the Texas Abortion Case, by the Editors of National Review. “…[W]e continue to be disappointed in Chief Justice Roberts, whose opinion endorsed the judicial-activist remedy of federal lawsuits against state court clerks, a bizarre position for a man whose professed judicial minimalism is supposed to be justified by a concern for the institutional integrity and prestige of the courts. We are skeptical of the enforcement mechanism used by the Texas legislature, which was born of desperation to find some way to protect unborn life. The Court has available, in Dobbs, a better way: End Roe.” Read more here.

 

Parents Have to Fight Big Tech, Government, Schools and More to Protect Their Kids From LGBT Propaganda, by Jonathon Van Maren. “If you have children and you want them to develop a healthy, biblical view of sexuality, you need to know that you are facing off against the forces of Big Tech, the government, the entertainment industry, and what passes for education these days. Parents have told me that it is pretty much impossible to let kids pick out their own books at the public library … because LGBT themes pervade the children’s section (all funded by you, the taxpayer)! To ensure that your children do not see the ugliness, hedonism, and confusion of today as ‘normal,’ you will have to be extraordinarily vigilant.” Read more here.

 

Abortion on Trial, by Jerry Newcombe. “…Justice Samuel Alito posed a question to Biden’s pro-abortion Solicitor General, who is relying heavily on maintaining decades of Supreme Court precedent rather than the Constitution itself. He asked her: ‘Is it your argument that a case can never be overruled simply because it was egregiously wrong?’ Just because we’ve lived with Roe all these years doesn’t make it right. 63 million dead babies in the wake of Roe v. Wade would agree, if somehow they could be polled.” Read more here.

 

The Left’s War With Biological Reality, by Ben Shapiro. “The same people who maintain that your biology dictates that you can be a man in a woman’s body and that this represents not gender dysphoria … but an objective reality to which all of society should conform also argue that biology creates morally unjust connections between mother and child… This means that women should consider killing the child rather than putting it up for adoption.” Read more here.

 

If the Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade, What Happens? by Larry Elder. “Roe did not legalize abortion. Rather, the Court discovered a ‘right to privacy’ – nowhere mentioned in the Constitution… Our Founding Fathers restricted the duties, powers and obligations of the federal government, leaving the remainder to the people and to the states themselves. This includes abortion… With a reversal of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court says this: Where the Constitution fails to provide a specific empowerment for the federal government – butt out.” Read more here.

 

An Appalling Attack on Adoption, by the Editors of National Review. “…[S]he explained that pregnant women have a threefold ‘liberty interest’ in abortion. The right to abortion keeps women from having to go through pregnancy, to go through childbirth, and ‘to have a child out in the world.’ Notice how that third interest is framed. The ‘freedom’ that Roe v. Wade promises — that it insists the Constitution protects — includes not only the freedom from having to raise an unwanted child but the freedom from knowing that someone else is raising her.” Read more here.

 

Canada Has Just Declared War on Freedom of Religion and Conscience, by Michael Brown. “The reality is that this new bill actually prohibits Christians from practicing their faith when it comes to homosexuality and bisexuality and transgenderism. It also prohibits people who want to get help to pursue change, whatever their age, from pursuing that change – as long as it is changed away from being gay or bi or trans. Not only so, but the bill prohibits any attempt at ‘behavioral modification,’ meaning, simply wanting to lessen one’s same-sex attractions or actions. This is now forbidden by law.” Read more here.

 

NYC Will Spend $500 Million Teaching Kids to Obsess About Sex and Race, by Auguste Meyrat. “To make up for this injustice, Parker has now committed herself to providing a ‘culturally responsive and sustaining education’ or ‘CRSE.’ This means that she will pick texts on the basis of ‘representation’ and ‘diversity’ and emphasize racial and sexual identity in all her lessons. Instead of learning about the world and how to contribute to it, her students will now learn about themselves and how to become ‘agents of change.’” Read more here.

 

Telling the Truth on Abortion and Adoption, by Kelly Rosati. “Adoption isn’t the reason so many kids are without those life essentials. But it is one of the solutions for kids who are suffering and alone, without permanent family in their lives. And let’s settle this once for all: The idea that babies are better off dead than adopted is repugnant. And, as a society, we should push back hard against it and work for the day when all reasonable people gasp and shake their heads in disbelief that there was a time when this line of reasoning was advanced in a civilized society.” Read more here.

 

Report: The CIA Caught Employees Molesting Children and Didn’t Prosecute Them, by Joy Pullmann. “According to the internal CIA report BuzzFeed obtained, a CIA employee who had sexual contact with a 2-year-old girl and a 6-year-old girl was merely fired… The article also notes that child pornography is widespread on federal intelligence employees’ work computers and phones. BuzzFeed quotes director of the Pentagon’s Defense Security Service Daniel Payne in 2016 noting that on intelligence agency workers’ computers and phones, ‘the amount of child porn I see is just unbelievable.’” Read more here.

 

During Dobbs Oral Arguments, Justice Sotomayor Referenced Some of the Worst Pro-Abortion Arguments There Are, by Rebecca Downs. “Sotomayor bent over backwards to try to dismiss claims that unborn children can feel pain in the womb. The Mississippi solicitor general, Scott Stewart, had offered up the science of studying fetal pain as one of the advancements made since 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey… Justice Sotomayor admonished Stewart, claiming that it’s ‘a gross minority of doctors who believe fetal pain exists before 24, 25 weeks, it’s a huge minority and one not well founded in science at all…’” Read more here.

 

Religious Liberty Is Inadequately Protected by Australia’s Religious Discrimination Bill, by Greg Walsh. “A critical flaw of the Bill is that the protections for the conscience rights of health professionals found in the previous draft of the Bill have been removed. These provisions protected a health practitioner who objected to a procedure that conflicted with their religious beliefs. If it is not politically feasible to provide comprehensive protection for the conscience rights of health professionals, then there should at least be protection in relation to procedures involving the ending of life such as euthanasia and abortion.” Read more here.

 

No, We Shouldn’t Kill Babies Because Adoption Is Traumatic, by Katy Faust and Stacy Manning. “Adoption is a just society’s response to children in need. It’s an institution centered around the well-being of children, not the desires of adults. In adoption, the adults do the hard thing by meeting the needs of the child. They undergo screenings, background checks, references, home studies, financial and physical evaluations, etc. The list of qualifications to adopt is daunting, which is right and proper because the state is responsible for furnishing children with the loving and stable home they deserve.” Read more here.

 

Why the [Australian] Sex Discrimination Act Must Change, by Binary Australia. “If sex is not a protected characteristic in the Sex Discrimination Act, how can we defend and promote sex-based rights? If sex – that is male or female – is not referred to or defined, how do we know discrimination has or has not occurred? There are no other sexes. Sex is binary: male or female. No law can change this fact, but laws not founded in biological reality will do untold harm to our children and our communities.” Read more here.

 

Parents Across Country Sue Schools Over Clandestine Gender Transitions, by Harold Hutchison. “The lawsuit filed Nov. 17 by two public interest law firms against the Kettle Moraine School District in Wisconsin over the clandestine social transition of a 12-year-old girl marks the latest in a series of cases where school officials allegedly initiated social gender transitions without parental consent… ‘[T]his sort of thing is metastasizing like a cancer underneath the surface around the country,’ Vernadette Broyles, president and general counsel of the Child and Parent Rights Campaign, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Lifers Slam NYT Guest Essay Over Claim That Adoption Can Be More Traumatic Than Abortion, by Landon Mion. “Democratic consultant Elizabeth Spiers … argued that adoption is ‘often just as traumatic as the right thinks abortion is, if not more so, as a woman has to relinquish not a lump of cells but a fully formed baby she has lived with for nine months.’ The article prompted a slew of criticisms from notable conservative commentators that Spiers described as ‘callous’ opinions.” Read more here.

 

When It’s Parents Versus Teachers, Kids Lose, by Leonard Sax. “Twenty years ago, if a kid was caught cheating at school, that kid would be disciplined, but he or she would likely face more severe discipline at home. The teacher would notify the parents, who were likely to withhold privileges, perhaps grounding the child for cheating. Today, when a student is caught cheating, it’s not unusual for parents to swoop in like attorneys, demanding evidence and mounting a defense. Children and teenagers are most likely to thrive when parents and teachers are in alliance. But that alliance is breaking down.” Read more here.

 

High Court Hears Arguments in Biggest Abortion Case Since Roe. Here Are Key Takeaways, by Thomas Jipping and Sarah Parshall Perry. “Sotomayor asked a question about the current case that actually applies best to Roe and Casey: How can the Supreme Court ‘survive the stench that this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just acts’? The answer is, how can the high court survive without overruling Roe and Casey – decisions that divined a constitutional right to abortion very nearly out of thin air?” Read more here.

 

Actually, Justice Sotomayor, Everything Has Changed About the Abortion Debate Since Roe, by Tiana Lowe. “The average point of fetal viability has fallen to just 23 or 24 weeks, but even that continues to plummet thanks to miraculous advances in neonatal medicine… Even if the court upholds Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, ultra-blue states like New York will surely maintain their statutes permitting abortion up until the point of birth, while, God willing, red states at least match our European counterparts with bans after the first trimester. If the past does indeed prove preview, those babies may very well soon be considered viable.” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court’s Originalist Justices Should Allow Bad Abortion Law to Die by Its Own Hand, by Margot Cleveland. “Scientific advances likewise ‘have so changed’ that the court should see things differently – if only the justices would look. The rudimentary sonograms used at the time of Roe make the descriptor of fetuses as mere ‘clumps of cells’ more understandable, but the high-tech 4D ultrasounds of today establish beyond doubt the humanity of the unborn… And science now shows that fetuses experience pain much earlier than thought.” Read more here.

 

Dispelling 3 Common Myths About Abortion, by Melanie Israel and Levy Pait. “Abortion activists claim that abortions are safer than childbirth. But that’s the exact inverse of reality – and for a number of reasons. First, this framing of the debate denies the humanity of the unborn child from the outset. Because every fetus is a human possessing fundamental dignity, their health and safety must also be taken into consideration. No procedure that destroys life can be considered safe. By definition, abortion is always fatal for at least one party involved; namely, the unborn child. Therefore, by definition, abortion is never ‘safe.’” Read more here.

 

Critics Say Canada Is Too Quick to Treat Gender Dysphoria in Minors With Hormones and Surgery, by Tom Blackwell. “…[L]ast year the young woman made a stunning admission to her mother: even as she was being wheeled into the operating room to have her breasts removed, she was having doubts about her decision. Now the 21-year-old is ‘detransitioning,’ reverting to her original female identity. And Mary is part of a nascent movement calling for breaks to be placed on a health-care system geared to affirming a young person’s transgender feelings with drugs and surgery, allegedly in some instances after little assessment of other psychological issues.” Read more here.

 

Regardless of When an Unborn Child Is Considered ‘Viable,’ It’s an Arbitrary Standard, by Timothy M. Jackson. “The Supreme Court heard arguments in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on Wednesday, a case addressing the specific question of, ‘Whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.’ Or in layman’s terms, should states ever be allowed to outlaw abortions before the child is developed enough to survive outside the womb? The Supreme Court’s answer to this question has the potential to reshape or even obliterate the applicability of Roe.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Life Movement Is ‘Encouraged’ by Oral Arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson, by Rebecca Downs. “The United States is just one of seven nations that allow for elective abortions past 20 weeks, with China and North Korea also included in that list. Emphasizing how the United States is indeed ‘extreme,’ Bennett responded that it ‘does’ give her a renewed sense of hope to hear that Roberts brought up that point. She added she hopes all the justices will consider it in their decision-making.” Read more here.

 

A Major Abortion Case Goes Before the Supreme Court. Here’s What You Need to Know, by Melanie Israel. “…[O]utdated abortion jurisprudence has blocked much state policymaking on pre-viability abortions that accounts for advances in modern science and technology… Overturning Roe v. Wade wouldn’t mean that abortion in America would immediately be prohibited. It would mean that the American people in their respective states, through their elected representatives, could establish policies that account for advances in modern science and technology as well as pro-life shifts in public sentiment.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Will Determine If Customers Can Sue Businesses for ‘Emotional Distress.’ This Has Serious Implications for Religious Freedom, by Sarah Parshall Perry and Teresa Schuster. “If Premier Rehab is forced to pay emotional distress damages to Cummings, what of the medical practitioners who refuse to perform mastectomies on transgender patients or bakeries that decline to make custom cakes for same-sex couples? …As the courts continue to recognize sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes under federal civil rights law, allowing people to sue violators for causing them vaguely defined and often unverifiable emotional distress would open a Pandora’s box of harmful effects on religious freedom.” Read more here.

 

Pennsylvania Governor Celebrates Hospital Accused of Grotesque Fetal Experiments, by Ryan Navarro. “Claims from whistleblowers that aborted babies have lived through the procedures at Magee go back as far as 1972, when a Magee nurse provided testimony to Pennsylvania’s Abortion Law Commission. She discussed witnessing moving, breathing fetuses being ‘packed in ice’ and rushed to a laboratory. Doctors at the hospital were using a legal loophole to perform abortions during this time, according to a former Magee employee.” Read more here.

 

The Persecution of J.K. Rowling at Hands of ‘Oppressed,’ by Douglas Blair. “If you are transgender, especially a biological man pretending to be a woman, you will have the full backing of the media, corporate America, academia, the political class, and the vicious, violent Twitter mob. How could anyone with the backing of every major facet of American life be considered oppressed? Criticism of transgenderism, no matter how benign, is immediately met with fierce pushback and deplatforming.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s State Department Slips Abortion Into Human Rights Report, by Arielle Del Turco. “The term ‘reproductive rights’ is code for abortion, and its use in official U.S. human rights reports is inappropriate. A ‘right’ to abortion is nowhere to be found in international human rights law; meanwhile, the right to life certainly is. Now, American allies like Poland – known for being a great protector of human rights and champion of freedom – will receive a slap on the wrist at the hands of the State Department’s report for having pro-life protections.” Read more here.

 

Wisconsin Case Illustrates Public Schools’ Disdain for Parental Rights, by Emilie Kao. “Dr. Kenneth J. Zucker warns that encouraging social transition is actually ‘implementing a psychosocial treatment that will increase the odds of long-term persistence’ of gender dysphoria. School officials do not have the medical expertise, much less the authority to make health care decisions for students. The Wisconsin lawsuit should be a wake-up call to all parents. Parents, not schools, have the authority and the duty to help children flourish according to the truth that they are born in the right body.” Read more here.

 

A Conversion Therapy Ban Threatens to Leave Unhappy Children Medicalised, Sterilised and Sexually Impaired, by Maya Forstater. “The thing we are being warned off talking about here is that, at the heart of the proposal to ban conversion therapy, is a plan to criminalise delivering talking therapies to under-18-year-olds ‘with the intention of changing them from being transgender.’ This will mean that if children claim to be transgender, therapists who try to explore possible alternative diagnoses or causes for their distress could be accused of attempting conversion and face criminal investigation.” Read more here.

 

The Abortion Restriction Mississippi Wants Is Actually Moderate, by Tom Joyce. “Globally, the U.S. is a rarity when it comes to abortion law… While people may think of Mississippi as some bastion of southern Christian conservatism, the gestational limit that the state wants to put in place is liberal, even by European standards. In Europe, 47 of the 50 countries ban elective abortion at or before 15 weeks gestation, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute. That’s the part of the world many American liberals want to emulate.” Read more here.

 

The Horror of the Abortion Pill: Tens of Thousands of Women Need Hospital Treatment Due to Adverse Effects, by Helena Sutan. “Based on 85 freedom of information requests to NHS trusts, it was discovered that in 2020, more over 1 in 17 women (about 20 per day) who utilized the tablets by post service required hospital treatment. The findings have prompted advocates to demand that post-service tablets be phased out because to the risk [sic] they pose to women. The service was implemented as part of the Covid measures, which encouraged people to stay at home, but it is now being suggested that it should be phased out now that the limitations have been eased.” Read more here.

 

Germany’s New Government Surrenders to Identity Politics, by Katja Hoyer. “…[E]xisting legislation regarding trans people will be replaced with a ‘self-declaration law,’ which will allow everyone to change their gender by declaration alone. Gender reassignment surgery will be fully funded through the public health system. ‘Rainbow families’ will receive more support ‘especially in middle-size businesses and in the civil service’ but also in education, which is traditionally a devolved matter for the individual states.” Read more here.

 

10 Amazing Facts About Unborn Babies You Should Know Before SCOTUS Rules on Dobbs, by Jordan Boyd. “By 10 and a half weeks gestation, babies in the womb can control their fingers. Unborn babies typically begin to explore their new appendages by opening or closing their fingers into their hands before slowly learning to intentionally reach and grasp at the womb around them. By 27 weeks, Furth says a baby ‘will be able to support his own body weight momentarily by grasping!’ As early as 10 weeks gestation, unborn babies also learn to suck their thumbs and start to show a preference for a dominant right or left hand.” Read more here.

 

Why Aren’t We Having Enough Children to Replace Ourselves? by Louis T. March. “Bottom line: this is the first time in the history of humanity that fertility has declined on a sustained basis. Why is this happening? Even demographers, who relentlessly track such things, are stumped. Rather than rehash Pew’s research, let’s cut to the chase. Why? I’ll take a whack at it. Here are some reasons, all interrelated and overlapping, in no particular order.” Read more here.

 

Social and Emotional Indoctrination in Schools, by Betsy McCaughey. “On Nov. 22, the Hartford Courant reported that West Hartford, Connecticut, elementary school parents are in an uproar. They’re complaining that teachers are putting words such as ‘nonbinary’ on the chalkboard and telling kids, including kindergarteners, they can live life as a gender different from what they were assigned at birth. Parents were told by school authorities that they can’t opt their children out.” Read more here.

 

ER Visits Went Up 500 Percent With Chemical Abortions, Yet Biden’s FDA Wants to Expand Availability, by Rebecca Downs. “According to Medicaid claims data, visits to the emergency room following a chemical abortion increased by 507 percent from 2002 to 2015. Also of concern should be that most these [sic] ER visits, over 60 percent, were miscoded as spontaneous miscarriages, which a press release from [the Charlotte Lozier Institute] learns is ‘potentially putting patients at risk and masking the true dangers of chemical abortion.’” Read more here.

 

Fairfax County Public Schools Gives Parents the Double-Barreled Middle Finger, by Andrea Widburg. “In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), parents identified sexual grooming in two library books: Lawn Boy and Gender Queer: A Memoir, both of which have explicit homosexual behavior and groom children for pedophilia. FCPS temporarily pulled the books, but it’s now reinstated them, which is the equivalent of a double-barreled middle finger at parents. …[A]ny educators who sign off on this X-rated grooming material should be dismissed as a potential risk to children.” Read more here.

 

A Trans Online ‘Friend’ Tried to Groom My Son, by Anonymous Author. “WPATH [World Professional Association for Transgender Health] is telling us to shut up and let the professionals discuss transgender medicine in journals behind a paywall. Activists call us transphobic, allies say we are harming our child. The media says affirming and celebrating a trans identity is suicide prevention. I disagree! In our experience, the more our child attached to the trans identity, the less functional and more self-destructive he became. We are the parents of a formally [sic] trans identifying kid – what more of a stakeholder could we be than that?” Read more here.

 

Roe v. Wade: Unscientific and Outdated, by David A. Prentice. “For decades, those who championed unrestricted abortion until birth advanced two arguments to supersede all others. First, an unusually stringent loyalty to legal precedent that is questioned even by pro-choice legal scholars; second, that science should reign as the preeminent authority in policymaking. In making these two rules the platform of their defense, guardians of Roe have backed themselves into an uncomfortable corner.” Read more here.

 

The Importance of the Adoption and Children Bill [in Ireland], by Colm Gildernew. “Some of the key provisions contained in the Bill are to align adoption law to ensure that the child’s welfare is the paramount consideration in decisions [and] allowing the Department of Health to establish an independent review mechanism in relation to assessing prospective adopters… These changes are important and will positively affect the lives of children and young people. They do not come without a financial cost… But we cannot just look at the costs of implementing these changes; the costs of not doing this may be seen in young people who cannot reach their full potential.” Read more here.

 

Religious Employers Shouldn’t Have to Violate Their Convictions on Gender Ideology, by Shannon O. Royce. “If you happen to be one who brings sincere religious convictions to debates about gender identity, it’s disturbing to find suddenly that the deepest beliefs you hold are forfeit to government overreach… What’s more, the mandate even compels some to perform procedures they believe do egregious physical harm on those who look to them for medical care. That’s a lot to ask of any citizen in a country founded on religious liberty and freedom of speech. Indeed, it’s far too much.” Read more here.

 

The United States Goes All-In to Advance LGBT in UN Policy, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “The Biden administration took a risk by tabling a draft UN resolution with ‘sexual orientation and gender identity,’ but it paid off when the resolution was adopted unanimously… Traditional countries may come to regret not voting against the resolution. Allowing the Biden administration to put ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ in a UN resolution is a provocation. It sets a precedent for adding LGBT issues in dozens of UN resolutions every year, ending a longstanding stalemate in UN negotiations over LGBT issues.” Read more here.

 

Trans Ideology Has No Place in Children’s Groups Like the Girl Guides, by Frank Furedi. “As it happens, there is far more at stake than the issue of safeguarding. Transgender ideology is not simply committed to advocating the inclusion of biological males who identify as girls to join a well-known single gender organisation. It is also obsessed with imposing gender-neutrality on society and eliminating biological distinction between the sexes. Consequently, the term ‘Girlguiding’ is fast becoming a misnomer.” Read more here.

 

Dear Birthmom, by Ryan Bomberger. “I want you to know that I was adopted and so deeply loved. The parents that welcomed me into their home and hearts, when I was just six weeks old, weren’t deterred by how I came to be. They were committed to nurturing who I was meant to be. I wish you knew the beautiful reverberations you caused with that singular decision so many years ago. When I look into the faces of my amazing wife and four children (two of whom were also adopted), I can’t help but thank you…” Read more here.

 

How Some Schools Hide Sex Curriculum From Parents, by Capital Resource Institute. “The bait-and-switch is intentional. Remember, the school hands a concerned parent a binder containing the curriculum. The concerned parent assumes he or she is holding all of it… The parent is not told that a large portion of the curriculum lurks in a second location – either on a flash drive meant only for the teacher, or on the curriculum website that the teacher opens with a code – and it is here where the true intention and purpose of the supposed ‘curriculum’ is revealed.” Read more here.

 

In Case With Global Implications, Finland Puts Christians on Trial for Their Faith, by Joy Pullmann. “Rasanen and Pohjola are being charged with ‘hate speech’ for respectively writing and publishing a 24-page 2004 booklet that explains basic Christian theology about sex and marriage, which reserves sex exclusively for within marriage, which can only consist of one man and one woman, for life. The Finnish prosecutor claims centuries-old Christian teachings about sex ‘incite hatred’ and violate legal preferences for government-privileged identity groups.” Read more here.

 

The Left’s Appalling Efforts to ‘Normalize’ Pedophilia, by Nicole Russell. “While Heine rightly noted that abusing children is ‘wrong without any doubt,’ she also said that a ‘pedophile who doesn’t abuse children has done nothing wrong.’ That seems like a dramatically low bar for civilized society and hardly an area where we want to collectively shift our cultural standards: Pedophilia is a form of paraphilia, not an orientation, and it isn’t acceptable even if abuse does not occur.” Read more here.

 

Outcry After Nigeria Removed From U.S. ‘Country of Particular Concern’ List, by ADF International. “Why is the United States undermining its commitment to protecting international religious freedom? …Christians living in Nigeria face some of the worst acts of persecution. Millions of people have fled devastating violence and have become internally displaced. As a result of the violence, 13,000 churches have been closed or destroyed altogether. Many victims have been kidnapped, raped, forcibly converted or married, or sold into slavery.” Read more here.

 

New Olympic Committee Rules Essentially End Women’s Sports, by Libby Emmons. “This essentially spells the end of women’s sports at the highest levels of global competition. The IOC said testing athletes’ testosterone levels to verify that they are able to compete against women, who have far less testosterone than any male person, is ‘invasive’ and ‘disrespectful.’ They did not issue a statement on how invasive or disrespectful it is to force women to compete against bigger, stronger, men, or to allow men to take women’s places in athletic competition. The IOC basically doesn’t care about that.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers Will Be Central to a Post-Roe America, by Thomas Glessner. “These agencies provide vital support to mothers contemplating abortion. Medical services include pregnancy testing and ultrasound confirmation of pregnancy, as well as STI testing and treatment. Material resources include adoption services, referrals for ongoing medical and legal care, post-abortion counseling, temporary housing services and ongoing support. More than 1,300 centers are licensed medical clinics providing medical care at no charge.” Read more here.

 

Pedophilia Takes a Cautious Step Forward Toward Respectability, by Michael Cook. “My prediction is that it will be argued that paedophiles, at least the non-offending ones, have a ‘right’ to act out their desires. How this will be achieved is anyone’s guess. Perhaps child pornography will be legalised… Perhaps the law will take a more ‘enlightened’ view of the age of consent. But no doubt Allyn Walker and ‘their’ colleagues will find a way forward.” Read more here.

 

How Activist Teachers Recruit Kids, by Abigail Shrier. “Last month, the California Teachers Association (CTA) held a conference advising teachers on best practices for subverting parents, conservative communities and school principals on issues of gender identity and sexual orientation. Speakers went so far as to tout their surveillance of students’ Google searches, internet activity, and hallway conversations in order to target sixth graders for personal invitations to LGBTQ clubs, while actively concealing these clubs’ membership rolls from participants’ parents.” Read more here.

 

Former Architect of American Abortion Industry Speaks Out Against It, by Jerry Newcombe. “Nathanson was the ‘abortion king.’ He was the architect of the abortion industry. He co-founded NARAL… Beatley relates the main points of Nathanson’s erstwhile strategy to deceive America, the first being: ‘They framed the debate, and they framed it around the word “choose.”’ The use of euphemism, concealing the killing of a child under the positive word ‘choice,’ was highly effective.” Read more here.

 

The Olympics Open the Door for More Men in Women’s Sports on the World Stage, by Zachary Faria. “The International Olympic Committee has updated its guidelines for transgender athletes. The result is a collection of meaningless language about ‘inclusion’ and new standards that are open to subjectivity… It seems that the IOC is setting itself up to make determinations on a case-by-case basis. That alone would be unacceptable, but it is made even worse by the fact the IOC and other national sporting organizations have begun surrendering to gender ideology and transgender activists at the expense of female athletes.” Read more here.

 

If You Let Government Parent, Don’t Be Surprised When It Claims Your Kids, by Julie Gunlock. “Those who advocate for keeping children’s medical care private from parents often cite concerns about abuse arising from a parent finding out about their child’s sexual activity or its consequences. Yet school officials seem less concerned about the harms that could result from letting a child navigate these traumatic and potentially life-altering health conditions without assistance from their parents.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Like Me Are Furious With Our Party for Pushing Gender Insanity, by Kara Dansky. “Feminists have a saying: we cannot protect women and girls on the basis of sex if we cannot say what sex is. My hope is that lawmakers across the political aisle will get a grip and right the wrongs that have been perpetrated in the name of ‘gender identity.’ Every single human being is either female or male. No one ‘is transgender.’ It’s long past time that lawmakers across the political aisle and members of corporate media said so.” Read more here.

 

Biased ABC Poll Falsely Claims Americans Support Roe v. Wade and Abortions Up to Birth, by Micaiah Bilger. “A new ABC News/Washington Post poll with biased questions appears to show that a strong majority of Americans support the infamous abortion ruling Roe v. Wade… These results, however, do not match with numerous other polls that show strong public opposition to what Roe does: It forces states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions without limits up to viability and allows abortion on demand up to birth.” Read more here.

 

Religious Freedom Means Both Worship and Witness, by Kristen Waggoner. “A militant secularism that is hostile to religion has been on the rise for many years… Who could have imagined that faith-based adoption agencies would be punished for living out their belief that marriage is between a man and a woman? Or a cake artist, a florist, or a web designer? Believing that all we need to do is look inside in order to flourish has not made America more pluralistic. Instead, hyper-individualism has led to surging intolerance against those who dissent from new orthodoxies on sexuality, marriage, and the family.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Professor at Old Dominion University Rebrands Pedophiles as ‘Minor-Attracted Persons,’ by Spencer Lindquist. “Pedophiles are stigmatized because pedophilia is and deserves to be accurately seen as unspeakably reprehensible. Stigmas are a way we socially communicate this reprehensibility. Any word, framing, or action that chips away at this stigma inevitably breaks down the guardrails against such evil actions. Yet again we witness an instance of the left siding with the oppressor while pretending to advocate for the victim, this time under the guise of academic inquiry.” Read more here.

 

The Department of Justice Is Ignoring Child Victims of Sex Crimes, by Congresswoman Ann Wagner. “This isn’t conjecture. Serious sex crimes, including human trafficking, selling Child Sexual Abuse Material, kidnapping, battery, and child rape, involving OnlyFans have occurred across the country this year. I’m a mother and a grandmother, and I believe that we have a moral obligation to protect the most vulnerable. Frankly, I’m infuriated that the Department of Justice seems to be willing to turn a blind eye to the serious threat OnlyFans poses to minors.” Read more here.

 

Memphis Christian School Under Attack for Affirming Christian Values, by Todd Starnes. “Briarcrest Christian School drew fire after they announced a training session for parents and students on a Gospel response to sexuality and gender titled, ‘God Made Them Male and Female. And It Was Good. A Gospel Response to Culture’s Gender Theory…’ LGBT activist Dylan Sandifer accused the school of promoting bigoted ideas.” Read more here.

 

Money Is Not the Main Reason Why Americans Who Desire Marriage Remain Single, by Wendy Wang. “Marriage is declining quickly in the United States, especially among lower-income Americans. What’s worse, this ‘family polarization’ by income seems to have deepened since the pandemic began last year, according to our new report. Needless to say, money plays a critical role in this marriage divide. But if you ask individual Americans on the marriage market today why they are not married, surprisingly, their answers have little to do with money.” Read more here.

 

Transwomen May Have a Right to Be Pregnant, Argue Bioethicists, by Michael Cook. “Do transgender women (i.e., natal males) have a right to experience pregnancy? Two Italian doctors from the University of Rome Sapienza argue in Acta Biomedica that technology is advancing so fast that we need to confront this question. At the moment uterine transplants (UTx) are rare and often unsuccessful. But as surgeons improve their techniques, it may be possible for a natal male to give birth. ‘Such an option will mark a point where the set of moral and ethical precepts which we espouse could soon become obsolete,’ they write.” Read more here.

 

The Real Pro-Life Movement, by Kathryn Lopez. “I wish more people knew about the actual pro-life movement. It’s not just about defunding Planned Parenthood and undoing Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that made abortion legal in all trimesters of pregnancy. It’s about love. Women deserve better than abortion. And their unborn babies certainly do.” Read more here.

 

My Son’s English Teacher Showed a Transgender Activist’s Video in Class. Here’s What I Did Next, by Matt Schoenfeldt. “My eighth grade son recently got a ‘lesson’ in English class that featured a video of a transgender activist making a speech that includes sexually suggestive language. As a society, we have seen this sort of thing play out time and time again in recent years. First the left asks for tolerance, then acceptance, and then they demand that you celebrate their push for full ‘social justice’ indoctrination in every classroom in America.” Read more here.

 

Therapists Have Betrayed the Parents of Gender-Confused Kids, and There’ll Be Hell to Pay, by Miriam Grossman. “Following their teen’s bombshell announcement, most parents initially consult with gender therapists or clinics. The vast majority tell them they must unconditionally accept their child’s chosen identity, use a random, unfamiliar name, and help Sara bind her breasts and Michael tuck his genitals. Parents object, suggesting a slower process and deeper exploration. They insist: we know our child! The ideologues dismiss their parental instincts. They see their discomfort but brush it off.” Read more here.

 

To Protect Women, Trust the Science on Abortion, by Donna Harrison. “The truth is, in protecting women’s health, U.S. policies are woefully behind those of our European neighbors. In many progressive countries throughout Europe, laws require that elective abortions be performed at 14 weeks or earlier… These countries have based their abortion laws not on politics but on peer-reviewed medical research aimed at protecting women’s health. Their intent is to use empirically accurate information to promote the highest standards of medical care for women.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Restores Abortion to Human Rights Reports, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “Given the U.S.’s record of leadership on international human rights issues and extensive diplomatic presence around the world, the State Department’s annual country reports are an important source of information for advocates seeking to expose and end human rights abuses. Placing abortion alongside issues like freedom of speech, religious liberty, and other universally agreed human rights sends a message to the global community.” Read more here.

 

The Fringe of the Far-Left Fringe Is Controlling the Media’s Discourse on Transgenderism, by Becket Adams. “Feminism is always, always, always sidelined in favor of competing special interest groups that work against women. In this case specifically, the demands of transgender ideology require the suppression of the word ‘women.’ It is being erased from basic speech in service of honoring men who identify as women. This is what some would call ‘irony.’” Read more here.

 

Abortion Isn’t the Winning Issue Democrats Think It Is, by Zachary Faria. “Democrats like to convince themselves that abortion is a winning issue because of some neatly worded poll questions, but Virginia and Texas both provide evidence that that just isn’t the case. Abortion may be one of the driving issues for Democratic politicians and liberal activists, but it isn’t a deal breaker for independent voters. And it appears to create a lot more enthusiasm among pro-life voters than it does among Democrats.” Read more here.

 

Azusa Pacific University Proves Gender Insanity Has Also Invaded Christian Schools, by Jasmine Campos. “The conversation moved to a lecture, question and answer format. After a discussion of ‘neo-pronouns’ including xe/xem and ze/zer, the leaders briefly explained what they believed it meant to be transgender. One individual described it as someone feeling as though one is ‘different from the sex they were assigned at birth…’ The leaders then asked the group how each individual had explored his or her identity and pronouns, implying this is something everyone goes through.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Is Not a Punch Line, SNL, by Alexandra Desanctis. “If we assume the best of the skit’s creators, perhaps they meant to help post-abortive women feel less alone, but instead they erased the stories of countless women who didn’t want to choose abortion. All too often, women who have had an abortion felt that they had no choice because of financial difficulties, pressure from family, or lack of support from the child’s father. The skit likewise whitewashes the reality that some women are coerced into abortion, whether by literal force or by threats of abandonment.” Read more here.

 

If the Left Ends Parent Rights, You Might Need a License to Raise Your Own Child, by Stella Morabilto. “Social engineers would certainly like to see legislation that allows the state to assess parents for ‘fitness,’ dictating whether people can raise their own children… The idea is still consigned to journal articles and some academic chatter. But let’s not forget that critical race theory and transgenderism were once laughed off as fringy academic notions before they burst into newsrooms, then into classrooms and public libraries.” Read more here.

 

Please Don’t Clown Around When It Comes to Abortion, by Michael Brown. “…[A]ll of this underscores the need to sit down … and have honest, compassionate discussions with those on the ‘pro-choice’ side, as well as to provide safe spaces for the many women grieving over past abortions, enabling them to open up their hearts. In stark contrast, the last thing we need is someone called Goober the Clown to clown around about abortion. If there is any subject on the planet that does not comport with a ridiculous clown skit, it is the subject of abortion.” Read more here.

 

Therapists Must Be Allowed to Question Gender Identity, by Maya Forstater. “The Department of Health … has commissioned Dr. Hillary Cass to undertake an independent review of gender identity services for children and young people. She and her team are carefully considering evidence without a predetermined outcome. The Government should resist the LGBTQIA+ lobby’s encouragement to rush to criminalise therapists who refuse to tell parents they have a choice between a ‘dead daughter and living son.’ Instead, it should be patient and allow the Cass Review team to do their job.” Read more here.

 

UK Universities Clamp Down on Speech About Gender, by Lois McLatchie. “The integrity of one of Britain’s greatest global legacies is at stake here. The UK attracts over half a million international students to its institutions of higher learning every year, including over 20,000 students from the U.S. Oxford and Cambridge are legendary bastions of free speech, discovery, and the pursuit of truth. But with biological fact sheltered from exposure and legitimate debate silenced on uncomfortable issues, it’s unclear where these global titans will go next.” Read more here.

 

Boy Scouts Announce New Critical Race Theory Requirement, by Spencer Lindquist. “One such resource is the ‘All My Relations’ podcast, which focuses on the Native American experience and features episodes titled ‘Decolonizing Sex,’ ‘Celebrate Indigenous Peoples, Not Columbus,’ and ‘Indigiqueer.’ Flag folding is so last year. What we really need are Eagle Scouts who understand the Native American LGBT sexual experience!” Read more here.

 

Debunking a Fallacy: New Study Shows Therapy for Undesired Same-Sex Attraction ‘Can Be Effective, Beneficial, and Not Harmful,’ by Andre Van Mol, MD. “Ideology-driven legislative initiatives are underway to ban therapeutic choice – ‘conversion therapy’ being the provocative, pejorative and ill-defined colloquial term used as a jamming tactic – in the U.S. and internationally for people with undesired same-sex attraction or levels thereof… The foundational requirement for such therapy – and for talk-therapy of any kind for any patient complaint – is a willing, motivated and self-directed client. Involuntary therapy is failed therapy, no matter the problem.” Read more here.

 

Growing Problem of a Teen Transgender Trend, by Family First. “Many young people today are wondering if they were ‘born in the wrong body,’ and transgender activists are pushing an agenda that insists the body should be remade to conform with feelings. As such, the transgender trend spreads a confusing message to all kids, including those who struggle to accept their sex. Regrettably, this trend is taking root in the school curriculum where these radical ideas are being indoctrinated into young people, often without the express permission or even knowledge of parents.” Read more here.

 

Why Young Adults in Canada Embrace Marriage – or Reject It, by Peter Jon Mitchell. “Our most intriguing finding was among partnered young adults choosing to forego marriage. Half of partnered men and two out of five women selected ‘don’t believe in the institution of marriage’ as the main reason for their decision not to get married. The second most selected response among young adult women in this group was ‘current situation is fine as is,’ followed by ‘wedding preparations and cost.’” Read more here.

 

Upcoming Congressional Hearing on Abortion Ban Cares More About Politics Than Women’s Health, by Christina Francis. “The argument for the existence of these under-credentialed abortion clinics follows the rationale that women who wish to undergo an abortion would otherwise have to resort to unsafe and unsanitary conditions. Yet, ironically, abortion clinics often replicate the same unsanitary and unsafe conditions. Furthermore, these clinics evade the fundamental tenets of informed medical consent that apply to the entire medical industry… These clinics, in short, are not ethical or honest in their approach to health.” Read more here.

 

Media Explodes in Fury as Ghana Prepares to Pass the World’s Most Restrictive LGBTQ+ Law, by Mathew Otieno. “This is where the Western LGBTQ+ train goes off the rails. For some reason, they think it will be possible to impose tolerance for their community in Africa from the top down… Well, Africa has some news for the LGBTQ+ lobby. This approach will fail, friends. Pompous moralising can’t magically turn something people detest into something they admire. If anything, it will most likely result in more kneejerk reactions of the kind that precipitated the bill in Ghana. A tolerant future for LGBTQ+ people in Africa is possible. But it will have to come through genuine dialogue.” Read more here.

 

Dear Trans Activists: Parents Have Their ‘Lived Experience’ of Gender Dysphoria, Too, by Anonymous Author. “…[W]e parents are not having it. [Rapid onset gender dysphoria] is real. We need no more studies to tell us what we are seeing with our own eyes. These are our lived experiences. Unlike activists, we do not histrionically accuse our detractors of trying to deny our existence or to kill us. However, we do expect to be listened to and taken seriously so that our kids can receive proper care and avoid unnecessary harm – and we will not stop screaming from the rooftops until this happens.” Read more here.

 

Orphaned Children Need Attention on Adoption Law, by Barrister Zahid Rahman. “Adoption is usually viewed positively by society and has many benefits like loving families that take care of and lift their adopted children as if they were their own and giving them opportunities for better lives. As per the record, there are more than 4.4 million orphaned children in Bangladesh. Adoption can provide a favorable home to those children.” Read more here.

 

Rising Number of Single Mothers a Big Concern, by Samuel Yesuiah. “The respective family organisations and religious bodies [in Malaysia] need to implement measures to strengthen the institution of marriage through effective pre-marriage courses for men and women intending to get married. These courses should be made compulsory for all couples of all races and religions… The courses could help reduce marriage related issues and prepare them to face the impending onslaught of marital blues and thus rein in separation and divorce.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments in Two Texas Heartbeat Act Cases. Here Are the Top Takeaways, by Thomas Jipping and Sarah Parshall Perry. “Justice Neil Gorsuch appeared impatient with the United States’ broad request for relief, saying that there had never been such an injunction so expansive ‘in the history of the United States.’ This skepticism about the federal government’s desire to intervene in a state’s legislative and judicial process may mean that United States v. Texas is on shakier ground than Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson.” Read more here.

 

They Legalized Abortion by Complaining Women Were Doing Their Own, Now That’s What They Want Women to Do, by Micaiah Bilger. “They claimed they wanted to protect women from dangerous, self-induced abortions. But now they are openly promoting them. Self-induced abortions are becoming ‘more popular’ across the U.S. now that the pro-abortion movement is openly promoting what it once called a dangerous crisis… And the very language that abortion activists used for years to claim that legalizing abortion was necessary to protect women from dangerous self-induced abortions, they are now calling stigmatizing.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Pill Complications Requiring Hospital Visits in UK Mirror U.S. Data … and It’s Not Good, by Carole Novielli. “Abortion pill complications arising from incomplete abortion in the UK seem to mirror recently published data from a study in the U.S. According to Kevin Duffy, a former Global Director of Clinics Development at MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International), nearly 6% of women (as many as 1 in 17 pregnant women) who obtained a so-called ‘medical abortion’ (abortion pill) in the UK were subsequently treated for complications and needed hospital treatment arising from an incomplete abortion.” Read more here.

 

The Abortion Lobby Doubles Down on Risky Chemical-Abortion Pills, by Kristan Hawkins. “Corporate Abortion is now making sales pitches to stockpile the drugs in light of potential changes in the law. See, as one example, the recent New York Times op-ed… Uninformed readers were treated to extraordinary claims that no-test, at-home experiences are safe, and that there were ‘no significant safety reasons’ to have health and safety standards … kept in place by the FDA. That all depends on how women feel about infection, surgery, infertility, depression, horrifying pain, and even death.” Read more here.

 

Texas Heartbeat Act Again Before Supreme Court. Here’s What You Need to Know, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “…[T]he primary focus will be on strictly procedural questions. In United States v. Texas, the court will address whether the Department of Justice has standing to sue Texas at all and, if so, under what cause of action. In Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, the court will address the abortion provider’s claim that the civil enforcement mechanism itself is unconstitutional.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Still Haven’t Fixed All the Abortion-Funding Problems in Their Reconciliation Bill, by John McCormack. “This issue is in the legislative weeds, but the point is important: The Hyde amendment, which prohibits Medicaid funding of abortion except in rare circumstances, must be attached each year to an appropriations bill that funds the program. The Hyde amendment is not permanently embedded in the underlying law that established Medicaid.” Read more here.

 

Man Who Fights Women Claims Safety and Fairness Aren’t Legitimate Concerns, by Zachary Faria. “You can either oppose letting men such as McLaughlin punch women in the face in combat sports, or you can oppose physically and chemically altering the bodies of children because they claim to be of the opposite gender, an irreversible process that roughly 80% of them will grow to regret. Opposing both means you don’t care about safety. Or something.” Read more here.

 

The Aftermath of Gray Divorce for Men, Women, and Their Adult Children, by Kay Hymowitz. “So, what happens to relations between parents and adult children after gray divorce? The first thing to note may not sit comfortably with those committed to gender-neutral assumptions: fathers and mothers react to a break-up very differently. Mothers increase their involvement with their adult children; they are twice as likely to have more frequent contact with their adult children after a late divorce than they did before. For men, it’s the opposite; they are only half as likely to engage regularly with their grown children after a split.” Read more here.

 

Virginia Parents Standing Up to Loudoun County School Board Should Inspire Parents Everywhere, by Mary Clare Amselem. “…[O]ne cannot help but wonder how the public school system became so detached from the will of the parents, whose tax dollars fund the school…. The answer is that the left has come to embrace the troubling perspective that children are partially owned by the state. In the leftist worldview, the family unit does not have the sole right to determine what values and perspectives children should hold, but that public schools are equal stakeholders in these deeply personal decisions.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Equality Plan: Deadly for Unborn Babies, by Marie Smith. “Perhaps they forgot that the Declaration of Independence recognized ‘that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights’ and that the first of these rights is Life. The promotion of the death of the most vulnerable children among us – those alive but not yet born – shows the hypocrisy of the Biden Administration’s claim that it is following a ‘tireless pursuit of greater equity for all.’” Read more here.

 

Irony: ‘Inter-Gender’ MMA Fight Horrifies Fans in Poland, by Matt Margolis. “…Ula Siekacz was eventually overpowered by Piotrek Muaboy, who pinned her down and repeatedly punched her in the head while she was unable to move. MMA fans couldn’t believe what they saw. ‘How is this sanctioned? This is horrific,’ one fan asked on social media. But we know the answer. Men physically beating up women has been sanctioned for a while now. The key difference here is that Piotrek Muaboy isn’t a ‘transgender woman;’ otherwise, the fight would have been celebrated by the LGBTQ community and trans rights activists.” Read more here.

 

Small-Town Wisconsin Schools Won’t Tell Parents If Their Children Identify as Transgender, by Dan O’Donnell. “To officially change their names in the district’s computer system, students will still need to provide documentation of a legal name change. However, the new policy allows teachers and other district employees to treat students as members of the opposite sex without ever informing their parents that they are doing so… ‘This is outrageous,’ said one Oshkosh parent. ‘So, if my son starts identifying as a girl at school but hides it from me, I will never know about it?’” Read more here.

 

‘Award-Winning’ Sexually Explicit Books Terry McAuliffe Kept in Virginia School Libraries, by Dr. Susan Berry. “In late September, the Fairfax County school district finally removed two books from its libraries, including Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe, which contains explicit illustrations of sexual encounters, including oral sex and masturbation, involving children… Fairfax County parent Stacy Langton raised the issue about the books’ accessibility to children at a school board meeting, and, as she read some of the explicit passages from Gender Queer, a school board member cut her off and actually chastised her for using explicit language.” Read more here.

 

Genderless Passports Are Absurd, by Nicole Russell. “Normalizing a person’s gender as ‘X’ rather than male or female is as dangerous as allowing an anorexic person to continue to starve herself because, after all, she’s merely only living out her true identity by refusing her body nourishment. Willingly participating in identifying a person as genderless is a sign that the U.S. government … fails to recognize the disastrous signs of what will become of a nation that allows people enduring an obvious mental health crisis to succumb to their whims.” Read more here.

 

Portland’s Abortion ‘Bereavement Leave’ for Employees Begs the Question: Who Died? by Bettina di Fiore. “If ‘bereavement’ is frequently defined as a period of grief or mourning after the death of a family member or loved one, and ‘bereavement leave’ is time off of work that is granted to employees to mourn that death, then this amended policy begs the question: who died? Granting this type of leave following an abortion is a tacit admission of the humanity and family membership of the one who has been aborted — something abortion advocates almost never do.” Read more here.

 

No Woman Should Have to Get an Abortion to Keep Her Job, by Mary Szoch. “Our society and workplaces will not be equal for men and women until we recognize that men and women are fundamentally different. Women have the ability to nurture and sustain life within them, and men do not. Little girls growing up in America should hear, ‘Women can do anything,’ not, ‘Women can do anything … as long as they don’t have children.’ If a man were told to kill his child in order to keep his career, the world would react in horror, and rightly so. So, why, then, do we accept women being told to do the same?” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County Is Putting Children in Harm’s Way, by Bethany Kozma. “Five years ago, I stood in front of both the Fairfax and Loudoun County school boards advocating for the protection of my children and others by warning against the adoption of radical new gender identity policies that are now in effect across Virginia and many parts of the United States. I uncomfortably spoke up as a sexual assault survivor, speaking on behalf of those who have no voice or are silenced. Looking back, who would have thought that freedom of speech at a public school board meeting would be such a divisive issue threatening our country today.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Issues Gender Strategy Promoting Abortion and LGBT Rights, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “Like several gender strategies issued under the Obama administration, Biden’s gender strategy aligns federal policies with international gender policies developed without the input and consent of U.S. voters and their representatives. But Biden’s gender strategy expands the reach of ‘gender’ policies far beyond what even the Obama administration had previously adopted. It affects both domestic and international policy. Obama’s gender policies only affected U.S. foreign policy and U.S. foreign assistance.” Read more here.

 

‘Fake News’ From Malawi About Unsafe Abortions, by Michael Cook. “…[T]he latest and more authoritative evidence from the World Health Organisation and the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study estimates that the number of maternal deaths every year [in Malawi] is between 1150 and 2100. So the number of back-street abortions cited in The Telegraph is between 6 and 10 times the number of maternal deaths from all causes. In the real world, outside of the Twitterverse, that is called ‘making it up as you go along.’” Read more here.

 

The Death of Marriage Proves Yet Again That Social Conservatives Were Right, by Nathanael Blake. “The sexual revolution’s redefinition of family was never going to stop with same-sex marriage, but few on the left have had the courage to say no to the expansion of the alphabet agenda. People who insisted same-sex marriage would have no effect on the rest of us now want to punish dissenters who don’t want to promote and celebrate same-sex weddings. People who declared this was about consenting adults are now all-in on the LGBT youth agenda, from child drag queens to transgender toddlers.” Read more here.

 

Why the Transgender Movement Is So Aggressively Misogynistic, by Kira Davis. “They constantly silence the voices of women. They hurl misogynistic, vile names at women like J.K. Rowling who simply defend the biological reality of womanhood. They label her and other women who don’t toe the trans line as TERFs – trans-exclusionary, radical feminists. Did you catch that? You’re a ‘radical’ for opposing the erasure of womanhood from the public square.” Read more here.

 

What to Do About Your Local Library Putting Porn on Kids’ Shelves, by Jonathan Lange. “The pornographic language and pictures found in the children’s section of America’s libraries are so over-the-top that examples cannot be printed in any respectable publication… Thus, parental concerns are shielded from the public by sheer decorum and decency. But that same decency is not restraining librarians from exposing even the youngest children to indecent content. By attractive, kid-friendly displays, they invite curious children to read what your local newspaper editor is ashamed to print.” Read more here.

 

First Comes Love. Then Comes Sterilization, by Suzy Weiss. “It used to be that people wanted to make babies. Women, especially, but also men. That was a healthy young person’s default position, and our existence depended on it. We wanted to do other things, of course, and the great post-feminist challenge was how to have it all — the proper work-life balance, the career and the baby, the supportive husband and the adventurous life. But now, for an increasing number, the question isn’t how to have it all. It’s: why do it at all?” Read more here.

 

Empty Pews Are an American Public Health Crisis, by Tyler J. Vanderweele and Brendan Case. “Our research suggests that religious service attendance specifically, rather than private practices or self-assessed religiosity or spirituality, most powerfully predicts health. Religious identity and private spirituality may, of course, still be very important and meaningful within the context of religious life, but their effects on health and well-being don’t seem to be as strong as those of regular gatherings with other believers.” Read more here.

 

Rachel Levine Is Not the First Female Anything, by Christopher Tremoglie. “Being female is more than just a word. It is not a ‘social construct,’ as is so often claimed… What is the message Levine’s boasted promotion sends to women? It lets them know that men will game the system to deny women opportunities and will be aided in doing so by the Democratic president and his party.” Read more here.

 

Prenatal Testing, Used in a Pro-Life Way, Made the Difference for These Families, by Bridget Sielicki. “Many well-meaning people decide against prenatal testing altogether, as if receiving it would somehow indicate that they intend to abort if an abnormality is detected. But prenatal testing can be used in a very positive, pro-life way. When parents are aware of a child’s medical needs before birth, they are often better able to prepare for raising a special needs child, while securing the help and attention needed immediately to give their child the best chance of survival after birth.” Read more here.

 

Conflicts of Interest Between Radical Left George Soros-Funded NGOs and Judges on the European Court of Human Rights: ECLJ Report Bears Fruit, by Grégor Puppinck. “A year and a half after its publication, a report on NGOs and the judges of the ECHR by the ACLJ’s international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), continues to bear fruit. In what may be a most important move, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has just modified its internal code of ethics and has undertaken to modify its rules on conflicts of interest.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Absurd Gender Strategy, by the Editors of National Review. “Yes, the ‘National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality,’ the first-ever such declaration because in the near-quarter millennium of this country’s existence no one ever thought we needed one, lays out a list of goals and aspirations and solutions to alleged problems whose existence keeps being asserted without evidence. ‘Health care,’ for instance, is a strange action item to list as a gender crisis when women outlive men in this country by 5.7 years… But of course the ‘women’s health’ issue that most excites the imagination of progressives is the continued right to exterminate the unborn.” Read more here.

 

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Is Becoming a Growth Industry, by Michael Cook. “…[F]rom an ethical point of view, the most controversial feature of [non-invasive prenatal testing] is that many women will abort their child after learning of the abnormality. A cynic might even argue that NIPT is basically a marketing tool for abortion clinics. As the authors note, this is sometimes factored into studies of the cost-effectiveness of public funding. In other words, economists assess the life of a person with a disability as a drain on the economy.” Read more here.

 

Will More Canadian Journalists Stand Up to the LGBT Mob After CTV’s Report on the Dangers of ‘Gender-Transitioning’? by Jonathon Van Maren. “For the Canadian media, even admitting that there are two sides to the transgender question is a big step… This CTV investigation may seem like a small thing, and I noticed that almost no Canadian journalists did the usual thing of tweeting and commenting about anything controversial that emerges from their bubble, probably calculating that on this issue, it is wiser to simply stay silent. Canada deserves better journalists; reporters who actually have the guts to do deep dives into stories and report perspectives regardless of how ideologically correct they are.” Read more here.

 

Marriage Protects Mental Health: Evidence During COVID-19, by Christos Makridis and Clara E. Piano. “What do these results about the protective effects of marriage imply for children? While time will tell, they suggest that children with the benefit of both parents fared better during the pandemic than their counterparts who had only one parent present. If one parent was laid off, he/she could reallocate time to child care, while the other parent continued working. If only one parent is available, then he/she could be forced to take time off, especially since the child care sector was hit so hard.” Read more here.

 

Two Transgender Specialists Wonder: Has the New Orthodoxy Gone Too Far? by Paula Rinehart. “For nearly a decade, the transgender movement has steamrolled through American society with a façade of certainty and moral superiority no one is allowed to question. Choosing one’s gender has been the brave new frontier our children are entitled to cross, and woe to the parent, doctor, or educator who takes issue. In recent weeks, though, another major crack in this wall has appeared.” Read more here.

 

UN Health Special Rapporteur Supports Abortion at Expense of Women’s Health, by Grace Melton. “Pro-abortion actors in the U.S. and abroad have been working to weaken existing restrictions on chemical abortion pills and to promote telemedicine and mail-order pills under the guise of pandemic-related concerns. This is leading to more women undergoing this dangerous process at home, away from medical supervision and support. The consequences for women of self-administering mifepristone and misoprostol can be devastating, especially in the developing world.” Read more here.

 

Science Says What’s Really Compassionate Is Encouraging People With Gender Dysphoria to Love Their Real Bodies, by Kylee Zempel. “The sad truth is that so-called transition and those who peddle it as a solution can’t deliver on their promises. According to the study, 71 percent of respondents reported that prior to transition, they ‘thought transitioning was my only option to feel better,’ and 65 percent said they ‘thought transitioning would eliminate my gender dysphoria.’ They later detransitioned when these beliefs were exposed as lies.” Read more here.

 

Democrats’ Assault on Religious Liberty Began With an Innocuous-Sounding Phrase, by Sean Spicer. “Words matter. When politicians speak of freedom of worship, they are saying that you are free to worship any way you choose in your home or in your house of worship. But they don’t want your religion to affect the way you live your life in public or the way you conduct your business. Democrats and progressives say that you are perfectly free to pray and worship in any way you choose — as long as you do so behind closed doors.” Read more here.

 

Mom Says Superintendent Defended Gay Porn Book in School Library After Complaint, by Spencer Lindquist. “Erika Sanzi reported … that another concerned parent had emailed Auger about the ‘inappropriate’ book, which features multiple graphic scenes of gay men having sex, discussion of sexual fantasies, and even an instance where a girl is encouraged by her sibling to ‘taste’ herself. Sanzi posted a screenshot of an email she says is from Auger, which insists the book is not pornographic and compares the book to the work of Renaissance artist Michelangelo or an anatomy textbook.” Read more here.

 

Overturn Roe? It’s Not 1973 Anymore. Justices Should Let States Follow Science, by Melanie Israel. “In 1973, doctors couldn’t have dreamed of the ways they are now able to treat unborn patients. As science and technology advances, the field of perinatal medicine has exploded with options to diagnose, plan for, and treat various conditions – including surgery while children are still in the womb. Likewise, knowledge about fetal pain – and how it may be felt as early as at 12 weeks, far earlier than previously thought – has changed the standard of care for surgical procedures in utero, palliative care for babies born too early to survive, and more.” Read more here.

 

If You Can’t Tell a Man From a Woman, You’re Not a Health Official, You’re a Health Threat, by Joy Pullmann. “Not only did Joe Biden appoint a man who claims he’s a woman, and whose poor public health decisions led to thousands of unnecessary COVID deaths, as assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Biden has now made that man a four-star admiral and proclaimed we should all cheer at his administration appointing the ‘first’ ‘female’ ‘four-star officer.’ I repeat, this is not a joke.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Are Trying to Sneak Gender Dogma Into Bill on Family Violence, by Jay Richards. “Many of these updates are uncontroversial. But if you read closely, gender activists are trying to legally redefine sex, making it harder to maintain public facilities specifically for female victims of violence… The proposal would prohibit programs from providing reasonable safety for women as women – including sex-specific dressing, sleeping, and shower spaces – unless they can prove it’s essential to the program. It’s beyond bizarre to impose a higher burden for women-only spaces in violence prevention programs that mainly help women.” Read more here.

 

Solving the Supreme Court’s Abortion Dilemma in Dobbs, by Richard Stith. “The strategy I propose … would avoid a constitutional crisis; it would allow the Court to speak powerfully and compassionately about the nature and dignity of the child; and it would allow it to declare the reasonableness of protecting both the child and the child’s mother from the violence of abortion. Then, many years from now, after a successful outcome to the political debate that must still come, the Court could finally recognize that child to be fully one of us: a fellow human being with a constitutional right to life.” Read more here.

 

Yes, Abortion and Transgenderism Do Have Lots in Common, by Nathanael Blake. “Although there are abortion supporters who oppose transgenderism and vice versa, Boylan is correct that the justifications for abortion and transgenderism share most of their ideological DNA. Both are rooted in hatred for the givenness of human embodiment and its limitations. Both should be rejected in favor of something better.” Read more here.

 

To My Daughter’s Gender Therapist: You Were Wrong, by Anonymous. “She is a brilliant and beautiful human being whose entire future came so close to being stolen from her by the gender transition industry. It is alarming that an entire generation of gifted children who may be on the autism spectrum is being sterilized in what amounts to a eugenics experiment with the participation of big-name medical and professional institutions, and to the benefit of a novel category of mental health practitioners: gender therapists like you.” Read more here.

 

McAuliffe Agrees Public Schools Should Not Tell Parents If Their Child Is ‘Gender Fluid,’ by Nick Bell. “The most pernicious aspect of the model policies is the alarming mandate that schools not tell parents if their son or daughter has adopted a new gender at school: ‘If a student is not ready or able to safely share with their family about their gender identity, this should be respected.’ The policies even suggest teachers use a child’s birth name with parents but a name of the opposite sex at school.” Read more here.

 

The Importance of Foster Care, by Kathryn Lopez. “In the abortion debates, the polarized discussion often focuses on death. Which is a shame, as foster care and adoption are important, even crucial, parts of the pro-life platform… We are getting into a heated season for the abortion debate – which too often is all about adults and not the child who has a right to not just life but love. Let’s work together to find solutions for children, families and communities.” Read more here.

 

Keeping Kids Off Porn, by Alysse ElHage. “Preventing our children from becoming the porn industry’s next addicts also involves equipping them to reject porn when they encounter it, which starts with pointing them to something better, and then helping them to make wise decisions alone. Even as we warn them away from harmful content, we should introduce children to the beauty and purpose of healthy sexuality, relationships, and marriage early and often, so they can identify the fraudulent messages of pornography.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Erase Women Through Budget ‘Reconciliation,’ by Jay Richards and Jared Eckert. “In 2021, opting to refer to a woman as a ‘pregnant, lactating, and postpartum individual’ suggests that someone need not be a female to be pregnant, to lactate, or to suffer postpartum health complications. That is, of course, exactly the point. For certain radical gender activists, being a woman is more a function of nurture and self-designation than nature and biology. That language reflects that conviction.” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County Knew It Was Putting Female Students at Risk With Its Transgender Policy, by Kaylee McGhee White. “In each of these cases, there’s a noticeable trend: Women are always the targets. Girls identifying as boys aren’t the ones waltzing into male locker rooms and assaulting or flashing young men. Women are almost always the victims, which means these transgender policies place women at a distinct disadvantage. Loudoun County’s officials knew this. They pushed their transgender agenda anyway, and two young women were raped as a consequence of their negligence.” Read more here.

 

Telling Women They Don’t Need Men Is Hurting Their Children, by Tim Goeglein. “Seeking to fill the void left by the absence of a loving father can tempt fatherless girls to become severely depressed, self-destructive, or sexually promiscuous. Boys more often deal with that void through anger, rage, or apathy. While we know of single mothers who have done heroic jobs in raising self-confident and successful children, in most cases society reaps the negative consequences of what we have sown over the past 25 years – children who have no concept of an intact family.” Read more here.

 

The Facebook Expose: Four Things Parents Need to Know, by Jean Twenge. “…[I]t seems clear that parents should delay kids and teens getting social media (particularly Instagram) as long as possible – perhaps until age 16 or even age 18. In a recent op-ed, a college student said her parents had not allowed her to have social media until she was 17 – and that she was grateful for that. In pre-pandemic visits to college campuses to give talks on iGen, I heard similar statements from many young students: Their parents had limited their use of technology when they were younger, and they praised their parents for doing so.” Read more here.

 

Mississippi Makes a Powerful Case Against Roe v. Wade, by Kaylee McGhee White. “When the Supreme Court hears the case in December, it will deal specifically with one question raised by Mississippi: whether all restrictions on pre-viability abortions are unconstitutional. This will make it extremely difficult for the court to avoid revisiting its previous rulings in Roe and Casey, which provide the legal justification for pre-viability abortions. In other words, the court will have to decide definitively: Can states restrict abortions, pre-viable or not, or should they be banned from restricting abortions altogether?” Read more here.

 

General Assembly Will Test Biden’s Commitment to Abortion and LGBT Rights, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “During negotiations over UN strategic plans last summer, where western donor countries influence is at its height, UN member states accepted language on ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ as well as ‘sexual and reproductive health and rights’ for the first time, albeit with disclaimers and asserting national prerogatives… It remains to be seen if the Biden administration and its allies can carry either of those terms into UN resolutions, where they have been repeatedly rejected in the past, and traditional countries feel more able to influence the outcome.” Read more here.

 

Humanity’s Demographic Future, by Jesus Fernandez-Villaverde. “…[T]he world’s demographic future is, to put it lightly, unusual. Not only is fertility declining, it is collapsing faster than I would have predicted ten years ago… Although a full analysis of this phenomenon is beyond the scope of this article, one thing is clear: the political, social, and economic consequences of such a demographic collapse will be tremendous.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Abortion Group Wants to Send Mobile Abortion Units to Surround Texas, Kill Babies in Abortions, by Micaiah Bilger. “Pro-abortion groups are doing everything they can to ‘help’ women ‘choose’ abortion, including sending a mobile abortion facility to the border. Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are quietly and compassionately offering real help to mothers and their babies across Texas, providing financial aid, material resources and many other forms of support, all for free.” Read more here.

 

Without Roe v. Wade, Abortion Will Remain Legal in Most States, by Jacob Sullum. “In most of the country … neither voters nor legislators are inclined to support the sort of sweeping restrictions that were common prior to Roe. Something like a 14% drop in abortions would be a welcome development for those who view the procedure as tantamount to murder. But it is a far cry from the goal that has driven the anti-abortion movement since Roe, and the dystopia envisioned by that decision’s most passionate supporters.” Read more here.

 

Queering Public Schools: LGBTQ+ Propaganda Within the U.S. Education System Worries Parents, by RT. “As part of education on consent and abuse prevention, 3Rs directs students to pair up and role-play various relationship scenarios. One of the tasks asks a male student to pretend his name is ‘Morgan’ and he is very active in the school LGBTQ+ community, while another student plays the role of ‘Terence,’ a closet homosexual in love with Morgan. In the role-play, Morgan plans a secret date with Terence, and it is suggested that students ‘make a decision on whether to have sex.’” Read more here.

 

Meet the Heretical Parents Questioning the Trans Narrative for Children and Teens, by Michael Cook. “…[I]t’s refreshing to read dissenting voices from mums and dads across the world who believe that their children should not adopt a transgender identity in their teen years… Are they transphobic? Ms. Armstrong bristles at the word. ‘Every single one of us has been called “transphobic,” but that’s a ridiculous term used to silence us from asking legitimate questions about actions and beliefs that directly threaten the health and safety of our children.’” Read more here.

 

New Sex Ed ‘Common Core’ Would Force Explicit Images, Gender Mayhem, and Abortion on Kids, by Nick Bell. “This is widespread debasing of sex and the creation of new life through filling the minds of public school children with sordid sexual imagery. It interprets humans as animals operating on pure instinct. For parents, there is nothing more disturbing than learning that their right to teach their children about sex, and the great responsibilities that accompany it, is being trampled by public schools.” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County Schools Covered Up Rape, Prosecuted a Concerned Father to Protect Transgender Agenda, by Kaylee McGhee White. “They tried to avoid getting law enforcement involved, telling Smith they would handle it ‘in-house,’ apparently in order to prevent controversy over their transgender policy. They also downplayed the assault when communicating with other parents, describing the incident as ‘something out of the ordinary.’ And finally, they transferred the assailant to a different school, where he went on to sexually assault another student just a few months later.” Read more here.

 

Here’s What We Know About Pitt’s Sadistic Experiments on Unborn Babies, by Madeline Osburn. “Daleiden explained how, in grant applications to receive NIH funding, the University of Pittsburgh essentially advertised their facilities as the best location for the GUDMAP aborted fetal kidney harvesting program. Pitt described how aborted babies are still alive at the time their kidneys are cut out. This was a selling point for why Pitt should receive millions of taxpayer dollars.” Read more here.

 

Now Two-Parent Families Are Racist, Too, by Kendall Qualls. “According to [the National Council on Family Relations], the nuclear family is now a vehicle of ‘family privilege’ – yet another new term – and white supremacy, a ‘structure’ that no longer is viewed as one that nurtures young children, provides them with stability and security, and prepares them for successful and emotionally sound adulthood. Instead, NCFR now says the family of mom, dad, and kids has mistakenly been upheld as ‘superior to all others’ and ‘creates systemic barriers to equal opportunity and justice for all families.’” Read more here.

 

When Conscience Is Attacked, the Ground Beneath Us Shakes, by Brian Bird. “This neglect is costing us. If there is one form of freedom on which a liberal democracy stands or falls, it is the freedom to live in alignment with our core convictions, whether ethical, religious, or political. Yet the once-settled principle that we should not force others to betray their conscience – unless there is a compelling reason to do so – is being diluted across our society.” Read more here.

 

Finnish Christian MP in Epic Court Battle Over Right to Criticise Homosexual Activity, by Michael Cook. “[Finland] is also the Number 1 country in the world for quality of life… Religious freedom, though, not so much. An astonishing case is beginning to make its way through the Finnish court system which the rest of the world should observe carefully. It could be a template for bullying LGBTQI+ activists to exclude Christian perspectives from the public square everywhere in the West.” Read more here.

 

When Parents Became the Enemy, by Michael Brown. “One mother told me that, without her or her husband’s knowledge, their 16-year-old daughter’s school was about to announce publicly that their daughter was now ‘he,’ with a new name and a new set of pronouns. The parents only found out because they happened to meet with her daughter’s teachers the night before the announcement was planned, having been concerned about the negative influence the school was having on their daughter. How can this be? Who gave the public school system such rights?” Read more here.

 

Pro-Abortion Advocates React as Texas ‘Heartbeat’ Law Is Reinstated by Federal Appeals Court, by Madeline Leesman. “The Center for Reproductive Rights’ President and CEO Nancy Northup said in a statement that the Supreme Court needs to intervene and that ‘patients are being thrown back into a state of chaos and fear.’ Adiana Pinon, the senior staff attorney at the ACLU of Texas said in a statement that ‘[t]he Fifth Circuit has failed again to preserve a critical right that has long existed in the United States.’ ‘Abortion is critical health care, and no one should be denied safe and legal access to it,’ she added.” Read more here.

 

Pushing Gender Dysphoria on Kids Is Child Abuse, and Child Abuse Warrants Intervention, by Casey Chalk. “Vanity Fair contributor Tracy Moore … writes glowingly of the new, unexplored adventure of talking pronouns with her 11-year-old daughter, whose friends identity as ‘demi-girls’ (those born female who don’t fully feel the part), or are transitioning genders, or expect Moore to use certain unintuitive preferred pronouns. For parents who have reservations about all of this, Moore enjoins them: ‘take your discomfort somewhere else, because this isn’t about you. It’s about stepping up as a parent in an era that’s new for all of us, but doubly delicate for our children.’” Read more here.

 

The UN and Gender Ideology: Laying Down a Paper Trail to Be Used by Activists in the Years Ahead, by Jonathon Van Maren. “A key aspect of totalitarianism is that dissenters from the state orthodoxy are punished… We are seeing that with the LGBT movement. Same-sex weddings aren’t just for same-sex couples — they want to force Christian florists and bakers to help them celebrate. It isn’t enough for them to change their pronouns, or even to have the government play along and recognize them either — they want you, and everybody else, to affirm them, as well.” Read more here.

 

12 Pro-Life Truths to Counter Every Abortion Myth, by Eleanor Bartow. “…[D]rawing the line at the point of viability is also problematic — that point will continue to get earlier in the pregnancy as medical advances create better means of keeping the unborn alive outside the womb; indeed, viability is now weeks earlier than it was when Roe was decided. Yet the unborn child did not become a person because it could survive due to modern science. Newborns are not technically viable either, as they cannot survive on their own. By this logic, we should consider it acceptable to kill newborns.” Read more here.

 

The Texas Heartbeat Law and the Pro-Life Movement After Roe, by Charles C. Camosy. “Dr. Jennifer Kerns … said in a Wired interview that at that stage, the child does not have a heart, only ‘a group of cells with electrical activity…’ If it wasn’t clear that abortion politics has been driving the rhetoric in these debates, the very same OB-GYNs will tell pregnant woman who want their child that at six weeks that [sic] their baby’s heartbeat is so-and-so many beats per minute and make sure they can in fact listen to that heartbeat.” Read more here.

 

Yes, the House Democrats’ Reconciliation Bill Would Fund Elective Abortions, by John McCormack. “…[I]t is indisputably true that the current iteration of the House Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill would fund abortion in several different ways. It includes a new ‘Medicaid-like’ program… The new program is fully funded by the federal government outside of the annual … bill that funds the traditional Medicaid program and has for many years included the Hyde amendment. According to judicial precedents, any federal health-care program that does not explicitly prohibit federal funding of elective abortion must fund all legal abortions.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Abortion Protesters Admit They Don’t Care If the Unborn Are Humans, by Spencer Lindquist. “We often presume that if we can simply win the war of ideas and prove that the unborn child is a living being, then the other side will naturally accept that we must protect them. Unfortunately, this assumption that everyone values human life isn’t always true. It’s an irreconcilable difference that transcends political ideology: Some people value life, and others do not. When debating those who have a complete disregard for human life, your arguments don’t matter.” Read more here.

 

An Important Church and State Battle in Seattle, by Jerry Newcombe. “A month after he was sworn in as our first president, George Washington wrote a group of Baptists: ‘If I could have entertained the slightest apprehension that the Constitution framed in the Convention, where I had the honor to preside, might possibly endanger the religious rights of any ecclesiastical society, certainly I would never have placed my signature to it.’ In short, if you believe that the Constitution allows for government to interfere with religious organizations, you’ll find no support from the father of our country.” Read more here.

 

The Women’s Health Protection Act Does Anything but Protect Women, by Congresswoman Kat Cammack. “The Women’s Health Protection Act … codifies universal, unlimited access to abortion, prohibiting states from implementing restrictions on when or how an abortion can be performed, including waiting periods, ultrasounds, or limits based on pregnancy stage. It also permanently eliminates pro-life protections including the Hyde Amendment, which protects American taxpayers from paying for abortions with their tax dollars.” Read more here.

 

Federal Judge Slams Texas Heartbeat Law With Strong Words as He Blocks Enforcement, by Rebecca Downs. “The ruling not only denied the state’s request to pause the ruling pending appeal, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, appointed by President Barack Obama, also had the strongest of words with his ruling… Pitman’s ruling is close to 113 pages long. His introduction refers to the now blocked law as ‘flagrantly unconstitutional,’ a term he also uses later in his decision… Pitman’s language towards the end of the decision was certainly an attention grabber, as he slammed what he called ‘offensive deprivation of such an important right…’” Read more here.

 

No, Men Cannot Become Pregnant and Have Babies, by Christopher Tremoglie. “This nonsense that males can bear children is the latest brainwashing attempt against society by radical leftists and Democrats. What was once a push for equality for people regardless of their sexuality has now evolved into an attempted reinvention of societal norms to accommodate fringe ideas. …[T]his is something everyone who believes in science must resist. Treating others equally and with respect is one thing. Recreating reality to accommodate gender dysphoria is another.” Read more here.

 

Fact Check: Do Most Americans Oppose the Hyde Amendment? by Ben Johnson. “Polls have consistently shown that Americans support limits on abortion, including the time it may be performed, the conditions under which abortion should be legal, and who pays for it. Years of polling data show that the Hyde Amendment and other policies that protect taxpayers against having to pay for most elective abortions have strong and steady support across political parties.” Read more here.

 

WA: Disturbing Outcome to Landmark Trans Case, by Peter Abetz. “That a judgement is based on the claims of a child which were reported second hand to the court, and were not allowed to be tested in court, and which are not divulged in the judgement, is most concerning. Indeed, the judgement seems to have been made on the basis of assuming that what the child reportedly said was true and accurately reported, while the parents were not reliable witnesses and not in a position to provide a safe home for their daughter.” Read more here.

 

Parents of Trans Kids Deserve Compassion, Not Condemnation, by Binary Australia. “The media’s wrongful characterisation of regular, careful parents as abusive monsters has gone unchallenged for far too long. It works to alienate children from their parents, right when parents are relying on the trust and connection they have established with their child over years of careful nurturing and relationship development… At a time when culture is working so hard to encourage children down the transgender road, the vilification of ordinary Australian parents who express caution about where that road might lead should concern us all.” Read more here.

 

Victoria’s Conversion Practices Act Is a Genuine Assault on Religious Freedom, by Murray Campbell. “…[F]or all the pop-talk about the separation of church and state, and of government commissions not getting involved in church doctrine, this law is all about doctrine and forcing a hardline (and at times anti-scientific) humanistic view onto religion. As another pastor expressed to me, for a law that’s designed to ban ‘conversion,’ he feels that he is being forcibly converted away from Christianity and into some new-fangled civil religion.” Read more here.

 

The Left Is Trying to Bypass Long-Standing Pro-Life Protections in $3.5 Trillion Spending Bill. Here’s What You Need to Know, by Melanie Israel. “The plans would also be required to cover ‘family planning’ services for those individuals, with the Department of Health and Human Services reimbursing insurers for 100% of the added cost – all without the Hyde-like protections that apply in other contexts of Obamacare to ensure that tax dollars aren’t underwriting abortion.” Read more here.

 

With a Conversion Therapy Ban on the Table, the Threat of Jail for Christians Is Real, by David Robertson. “In summary, we now have a group of people … who argue that abortion must not be criminalised. Killing the elderly or sick must not be criminalised. But praying for someone who asks for prayer is to be criminalised… If the principle is conceded that any form of prayer or religious practice which seeks to change people is ‘harmful’ to someone’s identity, then all forms of conversion could be banned. The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, slanderers, swindlers are not permitted to be converted or prayed for – lest we harm their ‘identity.’” Read more here.

 

Panel Rules That Not Using Preferred Pronouns Violated Transgender Person’s Human Rights, by Chris Enloe. “Cousineau also ordered … restaurant owners to update their employee policies to include a statement ‘that affirms every employee’s right to be addressed with their correct pronouns.’ Perhaps someone should lend Cousineau a basic linguistics textbook. Despite Cousineau claiming that ‘pronouns are a fundamental part of a person’s identity,’ pronouns are merely grammatical devices used in language to refer to nouns or noun phrases that have either been stated already or are assumed by context.” Read more here.

 

Media, Abortion Groups Recognize ‘International Safe Abortion Day,’ by Katie Yoder. “Abortion organizations and many in the media recently recognized and even celebrated ‘International Safe Abortion Day…’ But abortion is never safe because it always ends at least one life, the pro-life movement stresses. Five years ago, obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Anthony Levatino partnered with pro-life group Live Action to detail abortion procedures. Even his description of abortion by pill made clear: abortion is not safe for the unborn baby.” Read more here.

 

The Ideological Civil War Over Abortion, by Michael Brown. “For the pro-choice side, this is really a matter of life and death. A matter of ‘my body, my choice.’ A matter of health and security and freedom… For the pro-life side, this is also a matter of life and death. A matter of stopping the shedding of innocent blood. A matter of standing with ‘the least of these.’ A matter of doing what is best for the mothers as well.” Read more here.

 

With ‘Pregnant People’ Tweet, Government Promotes Transgender Agenda, by Katrina Trinko. “If you’re pregnant, it’s because you’re a woman – because you have a vagina, a uterus, and everything else necessary for a baby to be conceived and grow. If someone doesn’t ‘identify’ as a woman and is pregnant, it’s still because that person is biologically female. Our scientists – who seem to have little humility or wisdom about the dangers of manipulation and control of life – are recklessly working on uterus transplants and other technology that could allow a man to be pregnant, but we’re not there yet.” Read more here.

 

Doctors Kill 10 Percent of All Babies Who Die in Flanders, by Wesley J. Smith. “Belgium has no age limit for its euthanasia. Now, a letter published in a British Medical Journal publication reports that 10 percent of babies who died from 2016 to 2017 in Flanders … were given drugs by their own doctors with ‘an explicit life-shortening intention.’ In other words, they were euthanized, a.k.a., infanticide… Instead of demanding immediate action to stop these homicides, the authors suggest that a framework be considered to permit infanticide under more controlled conditions.” Read more here.

 

Women’s March Excludes Women With New Abortion Focus, by Katie Yoder. “The Women’s March first announced the Oct. 2 marches ‘to defend abortion rights’ in a Sept. 3 press release. Instead of calling them regular ‘women’s marches,’ organizers revealed that this would be a ‘Rally for Abortion Justice.’ Even its merchandise reflected the abortion messaging, with shirts reading ‘It’s my body, it’s my choice’ and ‘We need to talk about the elephant in the womb.’” Read more here.

 

Suicidal Sweet Sixteen: A Reflection on Trans Youth Medicine, by Jean C. Lloyd. “In acute situations of crisis, parents and young people need immediate help, as well as support to slow down and aim for the best long-term outcomes… But that is not what is happening. Instead, parents are led astray by a rogue and en vogue ‘trans-affirmative’ medical establishment, in which financial and ideological motivations override good clinical practice. As with Keira Bell, clinicians now often begin with suppressing puberty instead of dealing with suppressed problems.” Read more here.

 

Preteens Need Less Social Media, Not More, by Kimberly Ross. “For teenagers, social media is a different but no less toxic beast… The teenage years spawn enough body image and self-esteem issues. Social media makes all of it worse. Instead of launching an Instagram Kids to target 10- to 12-year-olds, there should be a hands-off approach. If anything, preteens should be sheltered from any type of social media platform whether it’s supposedly tailored to them or not.” Read more here.

 

Panic and Threats as a Small Fraction of British Doctors Dissent From LGBTQ+ Orthodoxy, by Carolyn Moynihan. “Woke politicians around the world want to ban ‘conversion therapy,’ though most of them could not tell you exactly what it is or who is doing it. For many people, the term evokes nasty scenarios from decades ago… What the average person doesn’t realise is that it now includes parents, pastors, teachers and possibly mental health professionals who recoil from the idea of giving drugs to 12-year-olds to stop them entering puberty because the children are unhappy with their sex.” Read more here.

 

Newborn Babies Are Killed in Belgium, Netherlands – but Most Won’t Call It Infanticide, by Jonathon Van Maren. “Of course, most will not defend these practices as ‘infanticide,’ per se. These killings are defended as necessary sacrifices for sexual liberation, ‘choice,’ ‘science,’ or ‘compassion.’ Infanticide is too inflammatory a term to use, which is why activists advocating for it are always careful to use different terms. And when researchers and journalists and activists shed light on the practice, it is ignored.” Read more here.

 

Wrong Then, Wrong Now: The Fake Abortion History of Roe v. Wade, by Justin Dyer. “The history put forward in abortion litigation by advocates of abortion has never been about history. By their own admission, they ‘fudge it as necessary,’ keeping up ‘the guise of impartial scholarship while advancing the proper ideological goals.’” Read more here.

 

Keeping Kids Off Porn, by Alysse ElHage. “Through our families, faith communities, and schools, we can infuse our children’s minds with beautiful and rich depictions of friendship, love, marriage, and family life from Scripture, good books, movies, music, art, and even social media. Teaching our kids to dwell on the edifying and beautiful things in this world – and how to seek out that content wherever they look – can help them reject harmful content.” Read more here.

 

Parents Deserve to Know What Kids Are Being Taught – so Why Is This State Preventing It? by Meg Kilgannon. “Since presumably, the teacher assigning the books would know about their content, simply notifying parents of that content is not much to ask. The education lobby maintained that parents should have to read all the assigned books to find out which ones had explicit sexual content. But if schools are truly partnering with parents, why the secrecy? Why not disclose to the parents what is going to be read by their children, which the teachers well know is in the material?” Read more here.

 

Abortion Harms Women, Including Athletes, by Katie Yoder. “Hundreds of female athletes are making headlines after claiming in a Supreme Court brief that their careers and profession depend on abortion. But their narrative isn’t unanimous. Other athletes – athletes who don’t appear in the brief – tell a different story: Their abortions wounded them.” Read more here.

 

PPU Students Seek to Expel Conservative Student Who Spoke Out Against Pronoun Rule, by Jonathan Turley. “Of course, anyone can post such an anonymous petition, and there is no indication that the university is taking such a move seriously… However, what does concern me is the hundreds of signatures in support of the campaign and, most importantly, the silence of the university. I could not find any comment from PPU reaffirming that it will not expel a student over his … criticism of the university or such policies.” Read more here.

 

Another Jack Phillips? Website Designer Targeted for Her Faith Appeals to Supreme Court, by Nicole Russell. “…[A]ttorneys representing Smith at the Alliance Defending Freedom petitioned the Supreme Court to hear her case, perhaps pushing the Supreme Court for a more broad ruling on free speech and antagonistic public accommodation laws that seem to compel people to act against their faith in the workplace, effectively punishing them for their religious beliefs.” Read more here.

 

Abortionist Proposes Scheme to Dispense Abortion Pills … Before Pregnancy, by Carole Novielli. “Despite the dangers, the abortionist is going full speed ahead with promoting this dangerous scheme, even spelling out how it could be done… Writing in the LA Times, Grossman stated, ‘The idea is simple: Give women abortion pills before they need them — “advance provision,” as it’s known — so that they can take them as soon as they discover a pregnancy. Women could get the pills from their gynecologist at the time of their annual exam, say, or the pills could be made available online.’” Read more here.

 

The Texas Heartbeat Act Is Saving 100 Babies’ Lives Every Single Day, by Rebecca Parma. “So far in Texas, we are seeing the abortion industry comply with the new law. Eighty-five percent of abortions that previously would have been occurring in our state are now illegal. More than 100 babies per day are being given a chance at life. There have not been any credible assertions of violation. This means that the unique threat of private lawsuits under this law is successfully saving babies.” Read more here.

 

There Is No Time to Lose in the Appointment of a New EU Special Envoy for FoRB, by Mervyn Thomas. “Many of the world’s most serious conflicts are rooted in, or are exacerbated by, religious differences or the misappropriation of religion. The EU is generally viewed as a neutral broker; consequently, its interventions, including through the agencies of the Special Envoy, are essential to advancing international peace and security… Moreover, the Special Envoy should be integrated more holistically into EU human rights policy structures, in order to facilitate the emergence of an overarching FoRB policy strategy that is long-term and connected to other human rights strategies and activities.” Read more here.

 

Can a Minor Consent to Losing Their Sexuality? by Edie Wyatt. “Internationally, many counties [sic] are moving away from the ‘gender affirmation model’ for the treatment of gender dysphoria and its reliance on puberty blockers. Gender affirmation is the practice of affirming the child in their chosen gender and critically requires widespread social engagement and restructuring of beliefs in human sex and gender. My opinion is that the political investment in the later [sic] has led to inappropriate activism for the former.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Life Work Doesn’t Stop With Texas, by Nathan Berning. “The demand for abortions will not decrease just because we have outlawed them. The supply may shrink, which is undoubtedly a good thing, but we cannot hope to eradicate abortion primarily through legislation, no matter how far it goes to limit the ability to obtain an abortion. Without support, women that are facing unplanned pregnancies will still find ways to have abortions.” Read more here.

 

Pennsylvania Supreme Court in Position to Hand Our Commonwealth to Abortion Extremists, by Jeanne Mancini. “A win for the abortion industry in this case would not only force state funding of abortion but would likely enshrine abortion as a right in Pennsylvania’s Constitution. That’s a chilling prospect, considering that abortion providers have been allowed to stay open even when they repeatedly fail health and safety inspections.” Read more here.

 

Colorado 303 Creations Web Designer Petitions Supreme Court Over Compelled Speech, by Rebecca Downs. “Smith serves all people, including those who identify as LGBT, but she is against being compelled to create websites and graphics that would go against her religious beliefs, such as supporting a same-sex wedding. Further, she cannot even make clear on her website that she is only willing to create websites consistent with her beliefs.” Read more here.

 

Fired High School Football Coach Appeals Prayer Case to Supreme Court, by Nicole Russell. “Kennedy’s brief inspirational prayers on a football field are clearly not an example of him or the school ‘establishing’ religion, nor would it look like the Bremerton School District promotes religion via its employees if it had allowed him to continue the practice. Even if he is a government employee, Kennedy’s free speech and free exercise rights aren’t moot.” Read more here.

 

What Pro-Abortion Dems Did Besides Passing So-Called Women’s Health Protection Act Adds Insult to Injury, by Rebecca Downs. “Not only did Democrats vote to pass such extreme pro-abortion legislation, they also denied the motion to recommit, which would have amended the bill to include protections for babies born alive after abortions… Republicans have been trying for years to get such protections onto the House floor for a vote, in the form of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Their efforts remain stymied, however, because the method the Republicans are turning to, a discharge petition, needs 218 members, and there just aren’t enough.” Read more here.

 

The Long-Awaited End to Roe v. Wade Will Be Just the Beginning, by Nathanael Blake. “The violent evil of abortion itself is obvious in the age of ultrasound, and decades of abortion on demand have shown that it only encourages other evils, rather than remedying them… Abortion removes the perceived problems of an undesired pregnancy, but it encourages the dynamics that produce such situations. Abortion supports a materialistic and selfish culture, in which wealth and status are the measure of a life, and relationships are about looking out for number one, rather than mutual love and self-giving.” Read more here.

 

Policing Pronouns: How ‘Misgendering’ Is Becoming the New Battleground Over Discrimination, by Jonathan Turley. “Pronouns are fast fading from common discourse under the threat of pronoun penalties. Cities, too, are enforcing misgendering rules; for example, the New York City Human Rights Law allows for fines if employers, landlords or professionals fail to use a preferred name, pronoun or title. Yet some people have religious beliefs against following the new order and using such pronouns. As a result, there are serious free-speech and religious-freedom objections to mandatory usage rules.” Read more here.

 

What the Latest Current Population Survey Tells Us About the Future of Fertility, by Lyman Stone. “Marriage is not only being delayed, it is being foregone altogether by a growing share of women. To the extent marriage rates do converge across generations, that convergence occurs by the time women are in their 40s and 50s, and these marriages have less influence on childbearing trends. In all the crucial years of childbearing, fewer women happen to have ever been in the married unions that tend to produce more children. This trend has continued at a similar pace across each generation with no sign of abating.” Read more here.

 

House Democrats Unite to Pass Barbaric Abortion Bill, by the Editors of National Review. “The legislation is nothing short of an act of barbarism: It would create an absolute right to abort a child before ‘fetal viability’ … and it would prohibit states from protecting life after viability until birth if a lone ‘health care provider’ determines the ‘continuation of the pregnancy would pose a risk’ to the mother’s life or ‘health.’ The bill’s chief sponsor in the Senate has acknowledged the legislation ‘doesn’t distinguish’ between physical and mental health, and the text of the bill explicitly instructs the courts to ‘liberally’ interpret the legislation.” Read more here.

 

The Pro-Life Movement’s Best Chance at Overturning Roe v. Wade Heads to the Supreme Court, by Kaylee McGhee White. “When the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case, it said it would deal specifically with one question: whether all restrictions on pre-viability abortions are unconstitutional. This will leave the court no choice but to revisit its previous rulings in Roe and Casey that the lower courts cited as a justification for striking down Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. And it must choose to either roll back its past restrictions on abortion bans or expand them.” Read more here.

 

How the Women’s Health Protection Act Endangers Women, by Kristan Hawkins and Rep. Lauren Boebert. “Why is this pro-abortion legislation so dangerous? If passed, H.R. 3755 would obliterate almost every state-implemented restriction on abortion. Widely supported policies such as mandatory waiting periods and ultrasounds, counseling requirements, informed consent laws, late-term abortion limits, and even basic health and safety standards would be invalidated.” Read more here.

 

House Republicans Just Voted to Draft Our Daughters – and GOP Senators Will, Too, by Drew White. “Politicians can repeal and amend statutory language, but they cannot repeal and amend basic biology. The fact is, my daughter, your daughter, your granddaughter, does not have an equal opportunity to survive on the battlefield. Indeed, a 2013 Marine Corps study showed that all-male units have a higher performance than mixed-sex units in 70 percent of combat tasks. Women have far higher injury rates than men when undergoing the same training, sometimes ten times the injury rate.” Read more here.

 

You Must Read This Stunning Letter From a ‘Detransitioned’ Woman Demanding the Medical Establishment Treat Gender Dysphoria With Science, Not Activism, by Kira Davis. “…Watson and others in her organization remain concerned that people … are actually hurting healthy youth by steering them down the singular path of medical transitioning, instead of taking a robust and ‘evidence-based’ approach to the issue of gender dysphoria. For a group of people who claim to be on the side of those we’ve made ‘invisible’ in our society, the pro-transition activists seem very determined to relegate detransitioned trans youth to the plane of invisibility in service of their agenda.” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court Has Several Chances to Preserve Religious Liberty, by Nicole Russell. “It wouldn’t be a Supreme Court semester without a lawsuit involving nuns. In Diocese of Albany v. Emami, an order of nuns that provides healthcare services is involved in a large group of faith-based organizations challenging a New York state abortion mandate that would force the nuns to cover abortions in their health plans. The mandate does have a narrow religious exemption, but that’s not enough for nuns reaching out to all people of all walks of life.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Medicine Has Failed Us, Say Detransitioners, by Rachael Wong. “The courts must also recognise that puberty blockers and other ‘gender-affirming’ treatments are not like any other medical treatments in terms of the magnitude of their implications and irreversible nature. Even better would be the recognition that they are not ‘medical treatments’ at all, but rather highly problematic medical experiments on some of our society’s most vulnerable young people.” Read more here.

 

Most People Support Women-Only Sports. Why Won’t Corporate Media Admit It? by Natasha Chart and Wendy Wixom. “…[I]s there any other issue on which the media is so consistently afraid to air a viewpoint that’s probably shared by about two-thirds of their potential audience? … Maybe journalists appear afraid that a Twitter mob will get them fired, or that some of their far-left colleagues will organize against them at the office. But how many polls do journalists and their editors have to see before they stop letting internet comments and fashionably unpopular activists run their newsrooms?” Read more here.

 

Is This Child Abuse? by Binary Australia. “One Australian study found 2.3 percent of Australian students in years 10 to 12 identified as transgender or gender diverse. The current study, led by Dr. Michelle Tollit, found 29 percent of patients over 10 years old received puberty blockers and 38 percent of teens were given gender-affirming hormones. More than 90 percent were transgender or non-binary. Alarmingly, these medical professionals are including very young children in their experimental treatments.” Read more here.

 

The Pro-Abortion Case Is Based on Bad Science, by Grazie Pozo Christie. “We want the justices to know that there have been vast changes in our fields in the decades since Roe… The patient-doctor relationship with our fetal patients has grown and grown, reflecting scientific advances in the areas of fetal therapeutics, fetal imaging, and our understanding of fetal pain. Our growing knowledge of fetal pain, especially, demands the end of Roe, which enshrines the nationwide legality of the breathtaking brutality of second- and third-trimester elective abortion. In short, if Roe is based on science, then let it stand or fall today on modern science.” Read more here.

 

What Really Led to OnlyFans’ Flip Flop on Its Porn Policy, by Haley McNamara. “There was significant backlash to OnlyFans from content creators who felt betrayed by the platform’s momentary no-porn policy. But in reality, this platform was already betraying them, and is still betraying them every day, by enabling an environment rife with sexual exploitation. OnlyFans, like other pornography sites, will always gloss over the reality that prostitution is never ‘safe’ and inevitably leads to physical, emotional, and psychological trauma.” Read more here.

 

Rand Paul Hasn’t Given Up on Recovering Illegitimate PPP Loans to Planned Parenthood, by Christopher Tremoglie. “The facts suggest that Planned Parenthood knowingly and willfully took taxpayer money to which it did not have a right. Bureaucratic malfeasance is common in our country, but there seems to be purposeful wrongdoing in this situation. If an organization like Planned Parenthood is able to skirt the rules during a time when all of the country is suffering vast economic setbacks, it demonstrates that organizations that align politically with Democrats in power are simply above the law.” Read more here.

 

More Radical Than Roe: House Abortion Bill Would Repeal Existing Laws, Prohibit Future Pro-Life Laws, by Melanie Israel. “The Women’s Health Protection Act would expressly prohibit existing laws that regulate abortion and the abortion industry. The bill bans informed consent requirements, reflection periods, and provisions that give women the opportunity to view an image of their unborn child or listen to the child’s heartbeat. The proposed federal policy would also preempt policies like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which currently protects women and their unborn children in more than a dozen states from inhumane late-term abortions performed after 20 weeks.” Read more here.

 

Don’t Ask Me for My Pronouns, by Debra Soh. “Nonbinary people identify as a third gender, either male and female or neither, and typically use pronouns such as ‘they/them,’ a mix such as ‘she/they,’ or nonsensical creations such as ‘xe/xem…’ From what I’ve observed, this obsession with pronouns is being pushed by nonbinary people and so-called allies who enjoy the attention that comes with advertising their pronouns but are not themselves transgender and have no desire to transition.” Read more here.

 

Gender Identity and Your Kids, by Rod Dreher. “’Forget trying to turn off their phones, if parents aren’t talking to their children right now about what sex (and gender) really are and how varied and multifaceted they can be while still existing in a binary, then they might as well be handing them over to the gender-packaging factory to receive their stripes. The instant someone says, “I don’t always adhere to stereotypes,” a million voices are waiting to tell them which of 364,000 identities they can fit into to be special and cool just like everyone else. If they don’t have a response for that, it’s over. Period.’” Read more here.

 

The Realities of Abortion, by Kathryn Lopez. “Whatever you think of the specifics of the Texas abortion law, there is something to be said for telling the truth: We’re not talking about a clump of cells in abortions, but a developing child. Science suggests that children in the womb can detect pain. We help no one by insisting abortion doesn’t involve the death of a child.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Are Set to Launch a Vicious Attack on Texas’ ‘Heartbeat’ Law, by Jeff Charles. “It seems the Democrats plan to once again introduce the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021… If passed, it would enact sweeping measures specifically designed to ensure an increase in the number of abortion procedures performed each year. It would essentially eliminate any methods for helping mothers consider other solutions; for example, ultrasounds and counseling would be banned.” Read more here.

 

Christians Should Be ‘Outraged’ That Children Are Being ‘Trafficked in Our Own Backyard,’ by Jeannie Ortega Law. “As this CP reporter was being driven to the safe house in a remote location to meet some of the boys in the organization’s care, a team member of the U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking shared several stories of the horrors the boys experienced as children and young teens. Sadly, most of the boys have been raped multiple times before the age of 15. One boy was abused so badly he was hospitalized for weeks before being transferred to the safe house.” Read more here.

 

EU Resolution on Afghanistan Demonstrates a ‘Guilty Lack of Attention to Christians,’ Says Co-Chair of Intergroup on FORB, by ADF International. “An estimated group of 10,000 Christians are facing danger in Afghanistan because of their faith. The majority are converts from Islam to Christianity. For decades they have largely practiced their faith underground, as conversion is considered a crime punishable by death under Sharia Law. Credible reports claim that the Taliban is conducting targeted killings of Christians and other minorities found using public transportation, as well as executing anyone found with Bible software installed on their cell phones.” Read more here.

 

Texas’s Abortion Law Isn’t Just a Win for Unborn Children, by James L. Sherley. “We face this disturbing prospect of a world with genetically modified clones because, when we stand by while legalized abortion strips six-week-old pre-born children of their right to life, it becomes even harder to require scientists to respect the privacy of children they have conceived in their experiments who are only days or weeks old. With its heartbeat law, the Texas Legislature may be saving us all from ourselves.” Read more here.

 

A Pattern of Anti-Family, Anti-Religion Legislation Is Emerging in Victoria, by Andy Mullins. “It’s almost impossible now to deny that the Andrews government has an anti-family agenda. In the government’s 18-page anti-vilification response, there are no references to ‘parent’ or ‘family,’ but the word ‘school’ is used 22 times. The primacy of parental rights in education has been ignored. Back in ancient Sparta, children were the responsibility of the state, not the parents. This is a step 2,400 years into the past.” Read more here.

 

When I Was a Kid, It Was Nothing for Boys to Play With Girl Toys. Now, It’s Life-Threatening, by J. Allen Cartwright. “Government intervention in gender transitions has become increasingly aggressive. As a consequence, this ‘cultural’ issue affects the average person more than other GOP talking points … and cannot be dismissed by our political leaders. Nor can conservatives simply write off the issue as ‘between a doctor and patient.’ Because the American Psychological Association and American Medical Association both support affirmation of gender transitions as a matter of policy, the outcome of the doctor-patient meeting is thus a foregone conclusion.” Read more here.

 

Google Is Helping Abortion Advocates Lie About an Abortion Reversal Treatment, by Kaylee McGhee White. “…Google removed and blocked advertisements from pro-life group Live Action, including ads about a medical treatment used to reverse the abortion pill and a video depicting how an unborn child develops in the womb. Live Action President Lila Rose shared a screenshot of the notification she received from Google, which says the ads were removed for using ‘restricted drug terms,’ ‘restricted medical content,’ ‘health in personalized advertising,’ and ‘misleading content.’” Read more here.

 

Beer Brand Celebrates Female Athletes by Promoting Men in Women’s Sports, by Zachary Faria. “Telfer, a biological man who races against female athletes, won the NCAA women’s championship in the 400-meter hurdles in 2019… What better way to celebrate the accomplishments of women in sports than promoting the accomplishments of a man who was competing against them and depriving them of opportunities at the college level?” Read more here.

 

Facebook Said That Instagram Wasn’t Bad for Teens. It Is and Here Are the Facts, by Christia Brown. “Humans, as a general rule, look to others to know how to fit in and judge their own lives. Teens are especially vulnerable to these social comparisons. Just about everyone can remember worrying about fitting in in high school. Instagram exacerbates that worry. It is hard enough to compare yourself to a supermodel who looks fantastic (albeit filtered); it can be even worse when the filtered comparison is Natalie down the hall.” Read more here.

 

Colleges Don’t Have a Guy Problem. America Has a Marriage Crisis, by Conn Carroll. “…[W]hen marriage rates decline, boys are more often left without male role models to help them navigate and master the world. And there is a growing body of evidence that being raised in an unmarried household hurts boys more than it hurts girls… A majority of Americans (53%), including 73% of Democrats, believe unwed parents can raise children just as well as married couples. Unfortunately, they are just wrong. Marriage matters.” Read more here.

 

European Group Attacked for Criticizing Dark Money Influence on UN Human Rights, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “…[T]he European Center for Law and Justice issued a report charging that the UN human rights agenda was driven by leftwing foundations. Almost immediately, UN bureaucrats closed ranks to defend their own from accusations that they promote LGBT rights and abortion under the influence of dark money.” Read more here.

 

If the Weddings Boom Keeps Going, It Could Solve a Lot of the World’s Problems, by Tim Goeglein. “Perhaps this recent uptick in birthrates is the beginning of achieving that demographic balance and will bring an economic, emotional, and even physical healing and restoration to our nation. It could transform our society from being trapped in a fallow winter of exploding entitlements to an abundant spring that can adequately care for all its members, and with a special focus on the needs of others rather than the needs of one individual.” Read more here.

 

What Happens When an Anti-Family Activist Has a Baby? by Kimberly Ells. “Israeli Labor Party Leader Merav Michaeli has momentous news: she has a new baby. This news is especially momentous since, for the last decade, Michaeli has been among the most vocal opponents of marriage, familial belonging, and parental rights on the planet… If anything can soften Michaeli’s heart or change her mind, it will be her baby, just like it is for most of us. Welcome to motherhood, Merav. It’s going to be a wonderful ride.” Read more here.

 

More College-Educated Women Putting the Baby Carriage Before Marriage, by Andrew Cherlin. “…[T]he percentage [of college graduates] who have a nonmarital first birth is rising… The data also suggest, however, that having a nonmarital first birth does not necessarily indicate a lifelong rejection of marriage. Rather, some college-educated young adults may be moving toward a pattern we have come to associate with Northern Europe, in which couples have a child outside of marriage, usually while cohabiting, and then marry at a later point.” Read more here.

 

Federal Leaders Get an F on Defending Religious Freedom, by Brian Dryden. “Father Deacon Bennett said Quebecers are Canadian citizens too and the federal government has a duty to defend religious freedom across the country despite Quebec Premier Francois Legault maintaining the rest of Canada has no business interfering. He said the law is ‘an affront’ to people who came to Canada after suffering religious persecution only to find it happening here.” Read more here.

 

The Draw and Drawbacks of Porn for Young Adults: Can Mindfulness Help? by Joshua Otani, Alyssa Lysenko Brown, and Rebecca Clarke. “Among individuals 18 to 30 years old, 63% of men and 21% of women reported they had viewed pornography at least several times a week. In addition, young adults have reported viewing porn more frequently compared to other age groups. But how is widespread use of pornography affecting young adults in terms of relationship satisfaction, sexual satisfaction, and commitment between partners? How does porn affect emotional health, and what are the dangers of using it as a coping mechanism to escape daily stress?” Read more here.

 

Canadian Tax Dollars Pay for State Broadcaster’s LGBT Promotion, by Jonathon Van Maren. “CBC’s latest show almost defies parody… Here’s how one Toronto publication described it: ‘”Sort Of” follows Toronto millennial Sabi Mehboob, a gender fluid, Canadian-Pakistani as they navigate the twists and turns of, well … life. The show has everything. Sabi struggles with their gender identity and sexuality, friendships, work, and relationships all while coming of age. Based loosely on Bilal Baig’s life, “Sort Of” is the first show on TV to star a trans-feminine, queer, Muslim actor.’ Yeah. Reread that for a moment. Your tax dollars pay for that.” Read more here.

 

Texas Stood Up for the Unborn – Others Must Follow, by Marjorie Dannenfelser. “…[T]hanks to the Supreme Court’s radical and hopelessly convoluted precedents, the United States is one of only seven countries in the world — including China and North Korea — that permit abortion on demand, for any reason, up to the point of birth. The strong majority of Americans agree this is too extreme, something they share with 47 out of 50 European nations that limit elective abortion prior to 15 weeks.” Read more here.

 

Allowing Biological Men to Fight Women in Combat Sports Is Dangerous and Grotesque, by Zachary Faria. “It does not matter what gender Fox or McLaughlin identifies as. There are two biological sexes, and McLaughlin is biologically male. Maybe that doesn’t matter in most aspects of life, but it certainly matters in combat sports. This is not progress. This is not ‘acceptance’ or compassion or tolerance. It’s grotesque. It is barbarism.” Read more here.

 

Family Love Is the Foundation of Civilization, by Kimberly Ells. “…[I]s loving your own child a racist, ‘moral vice?’ Well, if a new mother cared no more for her newborn babe than for the baby in the next room, the world—and the babies in it—would be in a world of hurt. In fact, I submit such a world could not last one generation. Family love is not racism. It is the very foundation of civilization.” Read more here.

 

In Defense of Motherhood: What’s Wrong With ‘Birthing People,’ by Cole S. Aronson. “If a mother is just a birthing person, a mere channel introducing into the world an otherwise rootless individual, then a mother’s child is not hers in any morally thick sense. If children are raised to believe parental authority is arbitrary, and if lawyers and policymakers ingest the same vision, then the rich network of claims and duties binding parents to children will become publicly unintelligible.” Read more here.

 

In Texas and Montana, Pro-Life Attitudes Are Winning, by Nicole Russell. “As science has improved to now observe a baby’s development, state legislatures have also evolved. As a result, they have passed laws that demonstrate a more broad, nuanced concern for mother and baby. If anything, in an age of life-saving in utero fetal surgeries, Roe reads like a horror novel. Only barbarians offer up their babies ‘for the good of society.’” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court Should Follow the Science That Proves Human Life Begins at Conception, by Thomas Glessner. “Contrary to the Supreme Court’s 1973 statement in Roe, current science proves beyond doubt that human life begins at conception. Thus, the most important question for the court now as it reconsiders Roe is, ‘when do human rights begin?’ The obvious answer to this question is that human rights begin when human life begins. In determining the fate of Roe v. Wade and millions yet to be born, the Supreme Court simply needs to follow the science.” Read more here.

 

‘The U.S. Government Is Censoring Private Conversations,’ Says the ‘Conversion Therapist’ Fighting a Legal Battle Not to Be Silenced, by Chris Sweeney. “Should private discussions between a counsellor and minors worried about their sexuality be allowed? Therapist Brian Tingley believes they should, and has taken to the courts to fight his case. Brian and his team are keen to overturn a district court decision in the state of Washington to reject his challenge to a law that prohibits ‘sexual orientation change therapy’ for young people.” Read more here.

 

Poll Delivers Blow to Narrative on Texas Heartbeat Law, by Rebecca Downs. “A new poll from Rasmussen Reports paints a different narrative than what Democrats and abortion advocates would like us to think when it comes to how voters feel when it comes to the Texas abortion law which recently went into effect… Forty-six percent support the new law, while 43 percent were opposed. Eleven percent were undecided.” Read more here.

 

Mexico High Court Declares Right to Abortion for Women and ‘Gestating Persons,’ by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “Mexico’s Supreme Court unanimously struck down the criminal abortion laws of the State of Coahuila de Zaragoza based on what it termed ‘women’s and gestating persons’ right to choose…’ The effect of the decision could be that abortion may never be considered a criminal act when it is carried out with the woman’s consent, effectively granting a right to abortion-on-demand up to the point of birth.” Read more here.

 

Hell Hath No Fury Like Democrats Blocked From Killing Babies, by Christopher Tremoglie. “We can make laws that … cover extreme cases. But this would not be enough for baby-killing advocates. Their endgame is predicated on keeping abortion legal in all cases. Nothing short of that is acceptable to them. People should not conflate a ‘right to choose’ with the termination of human life through abortion. Such language only desensitizes the public to the harsh reality of infanticide. There is no choice that supersedes the right of an innocent person to live.” Read more here.

 

Three-Year-Olds to Be Asked Their Pronouns, by Binary Australia. “The NSW government has sunk to new lows, publishing a guide that imposes radical gender ideology on children as young as three years of age. An official guide produced by the NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian titled Empowerment and Participation says adults should not assume a child’s gender… Unable to really defend the nonsense, a spokesman from the NSW ­Office of the Children’s Guardian said the prompt to ask for pronouns was simply about ‘avoiding confusion.’” Read more here.

 

UN Human Rights Experts Mess With Texas Pro-Life Law, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “While the opinion of experts like Upreti and Alsalem may be sought by newspapers like The Guardian or their testimonies solicited by local or national governments with regard to specific legislation, they have no power to impose obligations on any level of government. No binding international human rights treaty – either ratified or unratified by the U.S. – creates any right to abortion, and nor does any nonbinding global consensus.” Read more here.

 

Anti-Discrimination Acts Are Discriminatory, by Binary Australia. “An increasing number of people are challenging the discriminatory nature of the anti-discrimination acts around the country… Tasmanian Jessica Hoyle wanted an exemption to exclude ‘biological men’ from lesbian-only events in Launceston. She was denied. Hoyle is currently appealing a decision to deny lesbians the right to sex-based spaces and events.” Read more here.

 

There’s a Four-Letter Word for Pornography: Evil. Why Can’t the Media Pronounce It? by Michael Cook. “There’s only one correct response to pornography: absolute rejection. It corrupts men; it exploits women. Our democracy is built on the notion that each person has a unique, precious and transcendental destiny. Pornography is built on the notion that some persons are just raw meat. Are there difficulties in banning pornography? Of course. We’ll never scour this blot entirely away. But the first step is the unwavering conviction that it is absolutely unacceptable in a civilised society.” Read more here.

 

Gender Self-Identification Laws Are Being Exploited by Sexual Predators, by Debra Soh. “Of note, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department released a flyer from 2018 stating that Merager claims to be female in order to access women’s locker rooms and showers. But instead of pausing for a moment of reflection, left-leaning publications have dug in, framing any apprehension or sense of alarm as attempts by the ‘far-right’ to sow division and anti-transgender discrimination. Concern for the safety of women and girls has been replaced with emphatic reminders about the harassment transgender people face if they are excluded from their preferred spaces.” Read more here.

 

Deep in the Hearts of Texas Babies, by Cal Thomas. “Abortion and refusing to take personal responsibility for one’s actions have contributed to a general coarseness and disrespect for life at all stages as witnessed by the shooting sprees regularly occurring in Chicago and other major cities. The Texas and Mississippi laws seek to reverse, or at least slow down the process of squandering human life. The question remains: Is abortion the cause of our increasingly decadent culture, or a reflection of it?” Read more here.

 

Virginia Supreme Court Stands With Teacher Who Opposes School Transgender Policy, by Nicole Russell. “It’s one thing for school districts to create an atmosphere of compassion for children in puberty who are dealing with gender dysphoria, but it’s quite another to require staff, teachers, and students to defy science and logic and to engage in the all-out denial of sex differences and embrace the mysticism of gender transitions and gender-fluid pronouns, especially when social or medical transitions have not been proven to help children.” Read more here.

 

A Turning Point in the Scientific Debate on Childhood Transition, by Debra Soh. “…[M]ore research needs to be done to determine the best treatment course for these youth, particularly those for whom gender dysphoria only became present after puberty. This is a newer, less understood population… Because gender has become so hotly politicized, any scientific paper posing a threat to accepted narratives will typically be retracted, subjected to an additional round of peer review and a correction, or, more likely, rejected from publication to begin with.” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court Should Look at International Abortion Law and Overrule Roe v. Wade, by Ligia De Jesus Castaldi. “The amicus curiae brief of 141 international legal scholars … argues that if the Court chooses to consider international law in the Dobbs case, it should find that international human rights law and foreign law generally recognize unborn children as rights-holders and affirm the prerogative of sovereign states to protect their lives by rigorously regulating abortion. Many countries’ abortion laws are much more restrictive than the Mississippi Gestational Age Act.” Read more here.

 

Yes, Pro-Lifers Should Cheer for Texas’s Winning New Unborn Protection Law, by Nathanael Blake. “As Texas already shows, law shapes culture, as well as being shaped by it. In particular, abortion on demand has been a boon for irresponsible and abusive men, but we don’t have to live like this. Abortion supporters have been arguing that without abortion men will have to support the women they impregnate, and that the government will need to treat the unborn as persons, to which the pro-life reply is a simple: Yes.” Read more here.

 

An Example of How Transgender Rights Affect Women’s Safety, by Katrina Trinko. “Across the country, women are being affected right now by transgender rights… Solutions are out there that could accommodate both transgender people and keep women’s spaces safe, such as single-stall bathrooms that are gender-neutral. Yet unfortunately, instead of working on solutions like this, the default seems to be letting transgender rights trample women’s rights.” Read more here.

 

We Must Refuse to Accept Sex-Selective Abortion, by Brittany Summers. “…[T]he UNFPA reported in 2020 that an estimated 1.5 million unborn baby girls were killed that year globally through sex-selective abortion – not health issues, incest, rape or financial reasons – just preference. Calling this simply, ‘son preference’ achieved via ‘gender-biased sex selection,’ and leaving out the term ‘abortion,’ mind you, the UNFPA conveniently attributes this to discrimination against females, but takes no issue with abortion taking a life of either sex.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Is Not Just a Women’s Issue – Men Are Hurting, Too, by Nathan Misirian. “It is our culture’s perception that men are the perpetrators and aren’t hurting. In consumer research conducted by Support After Abortion, 48% of men surveyed who had an abortion experience shared they didn’t have a voice. Additionally, 71% of men shared that have experienced [sic] an adverse effect from abortion.” Read more here.

 

Left’s Reaction to Texas’ Pro-Life Law Shows It Reveres Abortion, by Nicole Russell. “Since the Supreme Court legalized abortion in Roe v. Wade, abortion has been a hot-button issue for the left and right for different reasons. The left’s unhinged, ignorant, bizarre reactions to a law that protects the lives of the most vulnerable Texans demonstrate that abortion will always be an issue of utmost importance to it, no matter that it literally destroys women and children.” Read more here.

 

Post-Cotonou Agreement: Blackmail for Development Aid, by Nicolas Bauer. “Before the adoption of the agreement, some MEPs … demanded precise answers from the EU institutions on some of its provisions. In particular, they questioned Article 29 § 5, which commits the parties to ‘supporti[ng] universal access to sexual and reproductive health commodities and healthcare services, including for family planning … and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes.’ When the European Commission uses the concept of sexual and reproductive health, it explicitly includes abortion.” Read more here.

 

The Real Attack Against Our Children, by Michael Brown. “It’s as if a horde of demons has been unleashed and our society has fallen into deep deception and delusion. And the ultimate victims, targeted for indoctrination from their earliest years, are the children. (If you think I’m exaggerating, take a minute to watch this ‘queer, non-binary’ pre-school teacher celebrating her accomplishments or this toddler reading through a gay ABC book.) Whatever the cause of this societal madness, the question that remains is simple: what are we going to do about it?” Read more here.

 

Congress Ignores Biology, Human Nature, and Decency in Moving to Make Women Draft-Eligible, by Quin Hillyer. “The confused elite culture insists that ‘equality’ means equal bearing of burdens, all burdens, as well as of opportunities. In this oh, so exalted viewpoint, the differences between men and women are so negligible as to be unworthy of serious consideration. After all, goes the sentiment, we’re all just ‘assigned’ a ‘gender’ at birth, right? Biological sex? Nothing more than a ‘social construct.’” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court’s Texas Abortion Decision Could Spell Doom for Roe v. Wade, by Thomas Glessner. “Due to the existence of safe haven laws in every state and the estimated 1-2 million couples waiting to adopt, there is no longer such a thing as an unwanted child… Much has changed since 1973. These substantial changes provide strong legal grounds for the Supreme Court to eliminate Roe v. Wade. As a just nation, America must always protect its most vulnerable citizens – born and unborn, regardless of gender, race, handicaps or infirmities.” Read more here.

 

Pro-Abortionists Want to Codify Late-Term Baby-Killing in the Vermont Constitution, by Jordan Davidson. “If passed, the potential amendment, which is heavily promoted and even financially supported by Planned Parenthood, will show up on Vermont voters’ ballots in November 2022. In Planned Parenthood’s press release celebrating the potential amendment’s progress, the organization which profits off of killing children in the womb explicitly stated the abortion industry’s intent to make the changes national if their efforts prove successful in Vermont.” Read more here.

 

Texas Heartbeat Law Is Now in Effect. Here’s What You Need to Know, by Melanie Israel and Sarah Parshall Perry. “…[T]he Texas Heartbeat Act takes a novel approach. Specifically, state officials may not enforce the law and are granted sovereign immunity against anyone seeking to bring suit on the grounds that the bill is contrary to constitutional law. Instead, private citizens may bring a civil enforcement action against someone who performs an abortion in violation of the law or assists someone in obtaining an illegal abortion.” Read more here.

 

Outside of the Media, Support for Roe Is Thin, by Timothy P. Carney. “The public, wrongly convinced by sloppy and biased media reporting that overturning Roe would amount to a few judges instantly outlawing all abortions, tells pollsters that it wants Roe upheld. If you ask them about the things Roe does, though, you get very different answers. A majority in a recent CBS poll (54%) want abortion to be more restricted than it currently is. That means they want Roe and Casey to be struck down or replaced with a completely different court precedent.” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County School Board’s Transgender Policy Is Still a Threat to First Amendment Rights, by Zachary Faria. “Under the guise of compassion for children, Loudoun County may still be able to compel teachers to adhere to the worldview of transgender activists, redefining sex and gender not just in violation of the religious rights of teachers, but basic biology. Cross’s recent victory is well-deserved, but the fact that it was necessary at all is a problem that goes far deeper.” Read more here.

 

20 States Sue Biden Administration for Corrupting Title IX With ‘Gender Identity’ Mumbo Jumbo, by Kylee Zempel. “…[T]he bureaucrats in the Biden administration, by ‘flouting procedural requirements in their rush to overreach,’ have decided to rewrite the law so that wherever ‘sex’ appears, it actually means ‘sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation.’ This overreach from Biden’s Department of Education and EEOC creates its own barrel of problems, of course — not the least of which is the fact that by writing ‘gender identity’ into the meaning of sex, the people who do not deny basic biology will assuredly face discrimination.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Gets It Right on Texas Abortion Law, by Editors of National Review. “The private-enforced mechanism in the Act is a brilliant response to the traps for pro-life legislation that Roe and Casey have illegitimately set. There are good reasons to question whether that mechanism is a desirable feature of a model abortion law. The right time to address that question is after Roe and Casey have been overturned. Let’s hope that the chief justice shows much sounder judgment on that question in Dobbs and joins with the five members of today’s majority to restore the people’s constitutional power to enact strong legislative protections for unborn children.” Read more here.

 

International Abortion Groups Demand a Cut of Climate Funding, by Alexis I. Fragosa, Esq. “The letter is likely an effort to make up for the deficit in funds for sexual and reproductive health due to the UK’s cuts to its foreign aid budget earlier this year. However, this is not the first time abortion advocates have lobbied for funds from a seemingly unrelated source. Abortion advocates have successfully integrated into other sectors, including funding for HIV/AIDS and LGBT rights.” Read more here

 

Supreme Court Rejects Injunction of Texas Abortion Law … Media Erupts With Roe Obituaries, by Jonathon Turley. “…[I]n the age of echo journalism, legal experts are expected to drive ratings and readership with breathless, partisan takes on every story. Some of that analysis constitutes raw conspiracies [sic] theories dressed up as legal analysis like declaring that this order proves the ‘very real possibility in America right now that the federal courts are conspiring against us, against the rights of women, of people of color, of voters, of poor people.’ Others cut to the chase and demanded that Congress immediately pack the Supreme Court with a liberal majority to guarantee results in such cases.” Read more here.

 

When Abortion Access Is at Stake, Suddenly the Left Remembers Men and Women Are Different, by Libby Emmons. “Abortion activists who have been referring to mothers as ‘birthing people,’ to women as ‘people who menstruate,’ and to biological males who identify as transgender as ‘women’ suddenly appeared to know what women actually are when laws opposing abortion went into effect in Texas… When it suits the left’s interests, men and women don’t exist, biology is a myth, and transgender persons are whatever they say they are, but for an abortion, everyone knows what a woman is.” Read more here.

 

Should Public Schools Be Allowed to Deceive Parents? by Abigail Shrier. “The ‘Gender Support Plan’ the district followed is an increasingly standard document which informs teachers of a child’s new chosen name and gender identity (‘trans,’ ‘agender,’ ‘non-binary,’ etc.) for all internal communications with the child. The school also provided the girl a year’s worth of counseling in support of her new identity, which in her case was ‘no gender.’ Even the P.E. teachers were in on it. Left in the dark were her parents.” Read more here.

 

The Texas Heartbeat Bill Is a Preview of a Post-Roe World, by Alexandra Desanctis. “…[T]he fundraising plea from the American Civil Liberties Union this morning insists that the effects of the Texas law ‘will be immediate and devastating…’ Contrary to this rhetoric, it’s important to note that the law in Texas imposes no criminal penalties, and none of its civil provisions apply to a woman who seeks or obtains an abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.” Read more here.

 

Thousands of Doctors and Health Professionals Sue the Biden Administration Over New Gender Transition Policy, by Jonathon Turley. “The third claim is under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) which prohibits the federal government from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion, unless the government demonstrates that the burden is the least restrictive means of furthering a compelling government interest… ‘The gender identity mandate substantially burdens the Religious Plaintiffs’ exercise of religion by requiring them to engage in the objectionable practices in violation of their beliefs.’” Read more here.

 

Singer Shares 3 Positive Abortion Stories: ‘My Favorite Traumatic Topic of All Time!’ by Katie Yoder. “The latest burst of positive abortion storytelling came … when singer and musician Amanda Palmer released a video featuring conversations with three women in Canada about their abortions. Their stories all had one thing in common: They claimed that abortion improved their lives. The video came as part of a new series that Palmer advertised on Twitter, where she has one million followers. She’s no stranger to the topic, having had three abortions herself.” Read more here.

 

‘We’re on a Mission:’ Advocacy Groups Behind Push to Save Women’s Sports Campaign Against Trans Surgeries for Minors, by Mary Margaret Olohan. “The battle to ‘Save Women’s Sports’ resulted in a slew of legislation banning biological males from girls’ sports and conversations on the national stage about gender, sex, individual dignity, and much more. Now the advocacy groups behind this push are assembling to battle the next burgeoning culture war issue — transgender sex change surgeries and procedures for minors.” Read more here.

 

Landmark Court Ruling Invites Inevitable Transgender Dilemma, by Nicole Russell. “This court’s ruling has incredible implications: By embracing a deceptively simple view of language that feigns ignorance about what the differences between ‘gender identity’ and ‘sex’ really are, this logic eliminates the ability for any person, organization, workplace, or university to have sex-specific sports programs, clubs, or bathroom facilities without fear of a lawsuit crying discrimination.” Read more here.

 

A Supreme Court That Capitulates on Roe v. Wade Will Unleash a Whirlwind, by Nathanael Blake. “The most important consideration is the wickedness of the radical regime of abortion on demand established by Roe and confirmed by Casey. In the age of ultrasound, we know what abortion is, and who it kills. The images eagerly shared on social media and stuck to the fridge condemn the atrocity of our abortion regime, in which the child whose features can be seen on the screen, and whose movements can be felt in the womb, has less legal protection than livestock.” Read more here.

 

State Reports Reveal Gruesome Abortion Procedures Once Thought Obsolete Are Still Being Committed, by Carole Novielli. “…[T]wo gruesome abortion procedures used shortly after abortion was legalized are being used again today… While some saline (prostaglandin) reports could be the result of miscoding, there is a concern that hysterotomy abortions conducted in both the first and second trimesters — which are very dangerous for women — could be used to procure live human specimens for ghoulish research like the experiments conducted using aborted children at the University of Pittsburgh.” Read more here.

 

When Harvard Hired an Atheist to Be the Chief University Chaplain, by Michael Brown. “…[T]o be a chaplain, by definition, means to be a religious leader, not simply a department head or an administrator or someone who believes in ethical living. And so, to appoint an atheist to be chief university chaplain is like appointing a Christian evangelist to head up the university’s atheist club. Or a devout Muslim to head up the university’s Judaism club. It is a total contradiction in both purpose and logic.” Read more here.

 

With the Help of a Unicorn, College Students Are Schooled on Which Restroom to Use, by Alex Parker. “…[A]ttendees of the University of Hawaii at Manoa are getting educated on which restroom to use. And in case they don’t quite get it, a quiz at the end can help out. Aiding the adolescents: a unicorn. For those unaware, The Gender Unicorn was created by Trans Student Educational Resources… Additionally, the resident training affirms all LGBTQ+ people’s preferred pronouns. As for LGBT identity, students are provided a form by which they can ban their ‘dead’ name and become something new.” Read more here.

 

The Pandemic Changed How Abortions Are Performed in America. Here’s How, by Zachary Mettler. “The regulation required abortionists ‘to prescribe and provide the first abortion pill (mifepristone) in person, before the woman takes the other half of the abortion pill protocol (misoprostol) at home to complete the abortion.’ The pro-abortion groups won in court and convinced a federal judge to block the policy nationwide… So, a woman could choose to abort her preborn child, be prescribed the abortion pill virtually, and then abort her baby via a chemical abortion without ever talking to someone in-person.” Read more here.

 

Biden Admin ‘Back-to-School’ Transgender Message: ‘We Intend to Enforce Our Ideology,’ by Dr. Susan Berry. “The Biden administration released a ‘back-to-school’ video that serves as a message it intends to ‘enforce’ its transgender ideology and ‘use children as enforcers,’ states the founder of an organization that helps victims of what she refers to as the ‘Sexual State.’” Read more here.

 

McDonald’s New ‘Saweetie Meal’ Promotes Rapper With Foul Videos and Lyrics, by Jeff Johnston. “Her videos also feature sexually suggestive dancing and clothing. One video on her YouTube channel is titled, ‘I shot with P*rnhub’ where she says, ‘We just wrapped a really sexy skit with Pornhub.’ The more than 633,000 people who’ve watched that video on her YouTube site get to see her in costume for the Pornhub shoot and performing sexually suggestive acts.” Read more here.

 

Afghanistan’s Christians Are Turning Off Phones and Going Into Hiding, by Kelsey Zorzi. “Some Christians on the ground have expressed that, with the takeover of Kabul, they expect to be killed, mafia-style. Although some reports say that the Taliban is already conducting targeted killings of Christians and other minorities found using public transportation, as well as executing anyone found with Bible software installed on their cell phones.” Read more here.

 

In Illinois, Tanning Salons Now Get More Oversight Than Abortion Facilities, by Amy Gehrke. “Abortion centers now fall outside the realm of standard Illinois health facility regulations, allowed to conduct their deadly business as they please. Does this sound like an industry that cares for women’s health? This disregard for women is par for the course throughout the abortion industry and is protected by politicians beholden to the millions in donations they receive from the industry and its supporters.” Read more here.

 

America’s Withdrawal From Afghanistan Will Open the Door for Sex Traffickers, by Tim Ballard. “Imagine being a woman or a child in Afghanistan now faced with one of two options, both with potentially tragic outcomes. The first, stay in a country that is ruled by a regime that was known to have one of the worst human rights records in the world. The second, attempt to flee the country and risk falling prey to those who seek to victimize the vulnerable, and force them into being trafficked for sex for forced labor.” Read more here.

 

OnlyFans Is Exploitative, but Not in the Way Elites and Prostitutes Claim, by Emily Jashinsky. “OnlyFans gets negative treatment and media coverage when pornographers are exploited and endangered, which is great but stops short of conceding those dangers are inevitable byproducts of ‘sex work’ and a culture that normalizes it… Normalized pornography warps and numbs men, consequentially hurts women, and absolutely commodifies bodies and intimacy to psychologically scarring effects.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Businesses Give Discounts to Women Already Under Pressure to Abort, by Nancy Flanders. “Making abortion cheaper for underprivileged women will only further enforce the pro-abortion discrimination that they already experience. Free or low-cost abortion weighed against the costs associated with raising a child is a tactic used by the abortion industry to convince women that abortion is their best option.” Read more here.

 

Why a Virginia Middle School Is Removing Urinals From the Boys’ Bathrooms, by Michael Brown. “…[T]his same school is removing the urinals from the boys’ bathrooms. Why? It’s because a number of biological females, who identify as males, are offended by the presence of urinals. So, rather than point out to these females that they are not really males (otherwise, they’d have no problems with urinals), the school turns the world upside down to accommodate them.” Read more here.

 

Gender Ideology Is a Boon to Big Pharma and Threat to Parental Rights, by Pedro L. Gonzalez. “In our brave new world, a culture of depravity preys on children. That culture insists that the state and medical professionals revoke guardianship from the adults to whom kids were accidentally born. The implications for this are terrifying, yet neither political party seems to have the courage to speak for the sanity and safety of American families. Meanwhile, Big Pharma cashes in handsomely.” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County School Board Enacts Wide-Ranging ‘Gender Identity’ Policy, by Alexandra Desanctis. “At least one public-school teacher in Loudoun County has already quit her job since the board approved the new policy, which also requires teachers to use students’ preferred pronouns as opposed to those that reflect their sex, without requiring students to offer ‘any substantiating evidence’ of their new gender identity.” Read more here.

 

‘Heteroromantic’ Privilege? James Madison University Pulls Controversial Diversity Training Video, by Jonathan Turley. “While employees were reportedly told not to share the material with others, the material became public before the school suddenly pulled it off of its sites. What stood out for me was the inclusion of the term ‘heteroromantic’ as a privileged group juxtaposed with the countervailing oppressed groups of ‘homoromantic, aromantic, bi/panromatic’ individuals.  I had not previously seen those categories in such materials, so I sought out some definitions.” Read more here.

 

While COVID Restrictions Reduced General U.S. Health Services, Sex Change Surgeries Grew by 12%, by Jonathon Van Maren. “The elites in education and many other public institutions now believe that they know what is good for children, and parents do not. In fact, they will assist and facilitate children living as different genders and obtaining permanent and damaging treatments with lifelong effects without alerting mothers and fathers to what is going on… As Shrier noted in Irreversible Damage, one day, many girls will wake up with no breasts and no uterus and wonder: I was just a teen. A kid. Why didn’t anyone stop me?” Read more here.

 

A Court Victory in Texas Against Obamacare’s Transgender Mandate, by Jay Richards and Sarah Parshall Perry. “Many doctors, for instance, reasonably believe that to remove healthy organs, or to give young people puberty-blocking drugs, would harm their patients—whatever the subjective wishes of the patient. Healthy organs are not deadly tumors, and puberty is not a disease. O’Connor’s ruling protects such medical judgment, whether it’s based on scientific evidence, religious conviction, or plain common sense.” Read more here.

 

Cohabitation Changes People: Contemporary European Evidence, by Laurie DeRose and Rebecca Oldroyd. “Why is this new work so remarkable? Because much cohabitation research in the past quarter century has focused on the characteristics of those who choose to cohabit versus marry—not on how people’s characteristics (i.e., their attitudes towards family dissolution) change during cohabitation. Such changes in attitudes have measurable consequences: favorable attitudes toward divorce are linked to patterns of marital interaction that decrease marital quality and increase the likelihood of divorce.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Pursue Radical Abortion Agenda, Upending Bipartisan Consensus, by Melanie Israel. “Outside Congress, pro-life policies enjoy broad support across the political spectrum. A majority of Americans oppose using taxpayer dollars to fund elective abortions, including 65% of independents and 31% of Democrats… To reflect that, members of Congress should reject attempts to enact spending bills that don’t incorporate longstanding pro-life policy provisions.” Read more here.

 

Texas Pro-Life Victory Is a Reminder That the Supreme Court Should Reevaluate Its Abortion Jurisprudence, by Zachary Faria. “The Supreme Court repeatedly has appeased pro-abortion activists … when it comes to abortion, disregarding the Constitution to expand and protect the abortion industry… That’s why lower courts, such as the district judge who was rightly overruled this week, continue to enjoy cover for even the most extreme pro-abortion jurisprudence. Confused lower courts will continue such jurisprudence until the Supreme Court does its duty by issuing a new, clear standard for abortion laws.” Read more here.

 

California Prisons ‘Lead’ the Way Into an Imaginary Sexless Future, by Inez Stepman. “The situation in the Golden State is the inevitable result of the false idea that sex is a social construct — an idea that is in the process of being enshrined at every level of U.S. law. What’s happening in California is the future of the country, unless the majority of Americans who object to the insanity find the courage to contradict the most sacred of politically correct edicts.” Read more here.

 

The Supreme Court Must End Coercive Abortion Mandates, by Alexandra Desanctis. “In order to qualify for relief from New York’s abortion-funding mandate, these and other Christian churches and ministries would have to cease offering their services to anyone except for those individuals who share the same faith… Unless they follow the mandate and provide coverage for elective abortions, the only other option for these groups is to forgo health insurance altogether, opening themselves up to immense fines from the state.” Read more here.

 

The Free Speech of Christians in the Public Square Must Be Protected, by Jeremiah Igunnubole. “Numerous other examples can be given of individuals arrested and detained, and though not prosecuted, chillingly warned not to repeat the alleged behaviour… Or those who, after arrest, release and confirmation that their actions are perfectly legal, are simply too scared to re-engage in the lawful activity for fear that another officer may think differently – reasoning that a repeat of the ordeal is not worth risking. How, despite changes in law specifically created to protect free speech, has it continued to be unjustly restricted in the public sphere?” Read more here.

 

Uninformed Consent: The Transgender Crisis, by Paul McHugh and Gerard V. Bradley. “To block puberty and then artificially redirect its course is to tamper with a vital human developmental matter with no reason for confidence in what will emerge beyond a lifetime preoccupied with medico-surgical interventions to maintain the illusion that one’s sex has changed. It was with this crucial feature of human beings in mind that the UK court ruled that no child is capable of consenting to these treatments.” Read more here.

 

Religious Belief Deserves Protection, by Vanessa Cheng and Mark Spencer. “We accept that people have the freedom to change their interpretation of what the Bible teaches around many things, including sexuality and marriage. But we do not believe that an individual teacher should expect to impose their changed beliefs about an important theological matter onto a Christian school that has been entirely consistent about their beliefs from the start.” Read more here.

 

Democrats Want to Use Your Taxpayer Money to Fund Abortion on Demand, by Rep. Steve Scalise and Rep. Kay Granger. “If congressional Democrats truly cared about bipartisanship, they would listen to voters. Recent polling reflects that most voters do not support the subsidizing of abortion on demand with their tax dollars. The poll … found that 58% of voters — including 31% of Democrats, 34% of self-described pro-choice voters, and 65% of independents — oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.” Read more here.

 

Booksellers’ Organization Apologizes for Promoting Book on Trans Damage to Children, by Jonathon Van Maren. “…[E]very aspect of [the American Bookseller’s Association]’s work will be combed over for any evidence of disloyalty to the trans movement, with … a new editor ‘reviewing for conscious language and an awareness of equity and inclusion issues.’ A program aimed at promoting LGBT voices will also be launched so that instead of booksellers getting Shrier’s book, they’ll only see what her detractors have to say.” Read more here.

 

‘Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality,’ by Angus Fox. “To spell out precisely how nefarious the pharmaceutical industry’s behaviour has become, she cites the work of Jennifer Bilek, who has mapped out the labyrinthine financial networks connecting hospitals, commercial hormone providers, rights campaigns and politicians, each professing wide-eyed innocence while stashing the cash on the sly.” Read more here.

 

The Scottish Government Is Determined to Advance Trans Ideology – and It’s Our Children Who Will Suffer, by David Robertson. “This week it was reported … that ‘children as young as four will be able to change their name and gender at school without their parents’ consent under new LGBT inclusivity guidelines drawn up by the Scottish Government.’ You have to stop, take a breath and re-read that sentence again… As someone said to me, it’s so mad that it cannot be true. Four-year-olds sometimes think they are animals or Thomas the Tank Engine – they are certainly not capable of determining that they are a different gender from their body.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Transgender Healthcare Mandate Has Always Been Unlawful, by Nicole Russell. “Of course, the federal court found that forcing faith-based doctors to treat patients in a way that goes against their faith and medical training violates their religious liberties, protected under both federal law and the Constitution. There is truly no other way to rule in this case. It is remarkable, in fact, that the Biden administration thought this was not only the right thing but the lawful thing to do.” Read more here.

 

The Trans Trends Which Are Sending Scotland Mad, by Ann Farmer. “Scotland, once renowned as the home of the philosophy of common sense, is slowly going bonkers… Gender is a purely personal category constructed by the individual; in real life nobody can change sex — they can only change their pronouns. Most people judge by their senses as to whether an individual is male or female – and the fact that there are two sexes is one of the very few facts of life that a four-year-old is able to grasp – but in Scotland people are being told to ignore common sense and obey government diktats.” Read more here.

 

I’m a Teacher. Parents Should Know That School Districts Hide an Ideology of ‘Unlimited Gender,’ by Brenda Lebsack. “As a current special education teacher, I believe communication with parents is essential. And as a former school board member, I believe transparency to taxpayers, who fund public education, is obligatory. Unfortunately, authorities in public school districts in charge of pre-K through grade 12 have been slow to disclose to parents and taxpayers their new terms and definitions for ‘expanding’ gender identities and ‘evolving’ sexual orientations.” Read more here.

 

SCOTUS Should Reverse Roe v. Wade Because Abortion Is a Crime Against Humanity, by Thomas Glessner. “Abortion is a gruesome and hideous act. It … brutally dismembers a living human being. Skulls are crushed. Arms and legs are dismembered. And the human remains of children are scraped together, placed in a plastic body bag, and sent to an incinerator for disposal. Animals killed at slaughterhouses for food are treated more humanely. The procedures for the demise of condemned prisoners on death row are far more compassionate.” Read more here.

 

Shocking Allegations of Live Baby Organ Harvesting Deserve Explanation, by Lou Barletta. “The documents demonstrate that Pitt has received at least $2.7 million in federal Health and Human Services (HHS) funding to become a ‘tissue hub’ for baby body parts for scientific research… So, what does almost $3 million in federal funding buy? Well, according to the documents, it bought Pitt a stockpile of fetal tissues, including ‘liver, heart, gonads, legs, brain, genitourinary tissues including kidneys, ureters and bladders.’” Read more here.

 

Global Family Planning Partnership Garners U.S. Support in Rebranding and Promoting LGBTQ Issues, by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “The current foreign aid bill passed in the U.S. House raises international family planning by $200 million. Under the Biden administration, agencies involved with any foreign assistance have been ordered to ‘consider the impact of programs…on LGBTQI+ persons’ when making funding decisions.” Read more here.

 

Breastfeeding Academy Bails on ‘Breasts,’ by Alex Parker. “Though the organization features ‘breast’ in its very name, it’ll no longer tout the term as a prime ‘lactation-related’ reference… The Academy asserts that ‘language has power,’ and it’s standing against ‘gender inequality and health inequities’ — those contribute ‘to rising morbidity and mortality of vulnerable populations.’” Read more here.

 

Olympics Bans Women From Women’s Sports While Letting Men Compete, by Elle Reynolds. “…[W]e have a system in which men can be women if they take enough hormone blockers, but women who have not messed with their natural hormone levels are told they cannot qualify as women. Such is the stunted logic of our modern view of sex, taken to its batty conclusion.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s IRS Is a Partisan Weapon in the War on Religious Freedom, by Timothy Head. “Never before in the history of America has professing the Christian faith been understood as a form of partisan political campaigning… Our Constitution was designed to protect us from government tyranny, and the IRS has no right to target and discriminate against Christian nonprofits like this. Our fundamental religious freedom should never be weaponized by partisan politics.” Read more here.

 

Are These 7 LGBT ‘Kids’ Books in Your Child’s Classroom or School Library? by Virginia Allen. “Children are learning about gay marriage, preferred pronouns, and gender identity, thanks to woke children’s books… Beyond the sexual messages of the books being inappropriate for children, there are also mental health concerns involved…” Read more here.

 

Why Women Should Pursue Marriage Just as Intentionally as a Career, by Suzanne Venker. “Whom you marry, and how that marriage fares, will have a greater effect on your happiness and well-being than anything else you do. It will be the axis upon which all other decisions are made: where to live, which career to pursue, how much wealth you’ll build — the list goes on. What sense does it make, then, to not prioritize it?” Read more here.

 

The Pro-Life Movement Doesn’t Just Save Lives, It Can Herald Real Feminism That Actually Helps Women, by Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty. “The pro-life movement can and should be an important part of this new feminism… It should have an educational, not merely a legal, mission. Overturning Roe will not be enough. Even stopping (some of) the killing will not be enough. Restoring the sense of the true dignity of womanhood is the momentous but achievable task for a post-Roe world.” Read more here.

 

We’re All Funding Stonewall, by Danielle Boxall. “Unfortunately for taxpayers, this craze has vigorously swept through our public institutions. So much so that each year, taxpayers are funding over £1 million worth of guidance on issues like gender-neutral spaces, pronouns, and transgender inclusion as part of the ‘Diversity Champions’ programme. At least 327 publicly funded groups were signed up to the scheme (at an average cost of around £3,500), but that is only the tip of the iceberg.” Read more here.

 

The Incoherence of Gender Ideology, by Michael Robillard. “The logical implications of the passing of the U.S. Equality Act would therefore constitute nothing less than the legal canonization of a new priest class of magical persons who speak all of reality into existence and a subordinate class of everyday citizens held hostage by state compulsion to be unwilling stage-actors in their never-ending, incoherent game of pretend. What is at stake here is therefore not simply one of politeness and etiquette having to do with proper names.” Read more here.

 

Investigate Now: Federal Grants Sponsored Possibly Live Baby Harvesting at University of Pittsburgh, by Edie Heipel. “…[N]ew evidence points to the University of Pittsburgh harvesting organs from born-alive babies as a real possibility—meaning the babies would have died while researchers dissected their bodies for kidneys and other organs… The records released this week reveal this wasn’t a one-off incident, unearthing an agreement between NIH and the university to fully operationalize a grotesque baby organ bank funded by federal taxpayers.” Read more here.

 

In the UK, Doctors and Judges Trample on a Family’s Religious Liberty, by Kathryn Jean Lopez. “…[T]he doctors aren’t God. Courts aren’t, either. And while I certainly agree that there are times when palliative care is perfectly appropriate and humane, the way this is all happening is chilling. The temporal isn’t everything, and we should all be able to agree that the spiritual care of a child is well within parents’ rights.” Read more here.

 

Trans Activism’s Long March Through Our Institutions, by Helen Joyce. “What campaigners mean by ‘trans rights’ is gender self-identification: that trans people be treated in every circumstance as members of the sex they identify with, rather than the sex they actually are. This is not a human right at all. It is a demand that everyone else lose their rights to single-sex spaces, services, and activities. And in its requirement that everyone else accept trans people’s subjective beliefs as objective reality, it is akin to a new state religion, complete with blasphemy laws.” Read more here.

 

Federally Funded University Makes Startling Admissions When It Comes to Tissue Bank Utilizing Aborted Babies, by Rebecca Downs. “Speaking on the ‘Drew Mariani Show’ on Friday, Dr. Michael New brought attention to how the university in their grant application indicates they try to keep the fetal tissue at room temperature, which raises concerns that the tissue may be extracted from infants born alive.” Read more here.

 

My 13-Year-Old Identifies as Polyamorous. What Should I Do? by Michael Cook. “There’s a good reason why it’s problematic. Polyamory – three or more adults in consensual sexual relationships, both homosexual and heterosexual – is not a good way to raise children… Society should not get into the business of protecting lifestyle choices for people who have lost sight of what sex is all about. We all have a stake in men and women ushering a new generation into the world, but not in subsidising their desire for pleasure.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Activist ‘Eats’ Abortion Pills on Camera ‘Because I Can,’ by Katie Yoder. “To show women that abortion ‘doesn’t necessarily need to be a huge deal,’ Amelia Bonow, the cofounder of Shout Your Abortion, recently swallowed abortion pills on camera. In a two-part video series, Bonow ordered the pills online and walked through the process of taking them – by taking them herself. But it was unrealistic for at least two reasons: Bonow wasn’t pregnant and she didn’t film what happened after she swallowed the pills.” Read more here.

 

Bill to Ban Conversion Therapy Poses Problems for Therapists, by Jacky Grainger, Madeleine Ni Dhailigh, and Stella O’Malley. “If therapists are fearful of accusations of ‘conversion’ therapy, first the majority won’t work in the area of gender and, second, there will be no chance for gender-questioning clients of this age to explore or be challenged. No room for growth, no time for reflection or self-discovery. The result of which would be a rigidity most alien to both effective psychological therapy and every single child development model that has every [sic] existed.” Read more here.

 

Roe v. Wade Must Meet Its End at Supreme Court, by Thomas Glessner. “After a significant victory by the Allied forces in World War II, Winston Churchill remarked, ‘This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.’ The same will be true of the demise of Roe, which many feel is imminent. The cultural battle for the sanctity of life will become more intense in the months and years ahead. In the end, respect for innocent human life will prevail and a culture of life will become reality in America.” Read more here.

 

Breaking: Crisis-Pregnancy Centers Help Women Avoid Abortion, by Alexandra Desanctis. “Once again, it seems impossible for ‘pro-choice’ activists to comprehend that, in the majority of cases, women don’t actually want to choose abortion — and that, far from harming or misleading these women, the majority of CPCs actually offer women a real choice by giving them the help they need to choose life.” Read more here.

 

Polyamory Gets Another Push, This Time From Harvard Law, by Alex Parker. “A mere few years ago, there were only hims and hers and straight, bi- and gay. Now we have eys, yos, xies, ves and bunselves, who may or may not be demigender, pansexual and/or neurodivergent minor. And as we evolve, no one should be stunned if their local Ferris wheel’s seats get conspicuously widened. They may need to, in accommodation of a cotton-candy eating romantic trio or quartet. Romance isn’t dead; in fact, it’s multiplied. Hence, prepare for the expanding popularity of polyamory.” Read more here.

 

SCOTUS Must Abandon Its Jurisprudence of Appeasing Abortion, by Zachary Faria. “The courts have once again affirmed that Tennessee’s 48-hour abortion waiting period is legal. Now, it’s on the Supreme Court to offer a clear standard for abortion laws… The Supreme Court needs to reevaluate its abortion jurisprudence based on the Constitution, or it risks giving away its institutional credibility.” Read more here.

 

Trans YouTube Star Arrested for Raping 79-Year-Old Mom to Be Jailed With Female Inmates, by Jonathon Van Maren. “…[W]e have decided that women are collateral damage as we rebuild society according to the ever-evolving ideology of gender activists. This male rapist … even insisted on being able to shower with the women. Vulnerable women are being locked up with sexual predators, and there is almost no protest. And now a man who allegedly raped his own mother will be locked up with female prisoners. Trans activists say this is right and just. It is not. It is wicked.” Read more here.

 

American Medical Association, Descending Into Wokeness, Calls for Eliminating Sex on Birth Certificates, by Jarrett Stepman. “The managerial class in government agencies, corporate boardrooms, and professional organizations have flipped on a switch, transforming themselves into social justice warriors. The cause and the revolution always will come first, no matter the science, no matter the truth. Medicine clearly isn’t immune.” Read more here.

 

Activists Seeking Universal Ban on ‘Conversion Therapy’ Frustrated by Fundamental Rights Enshrined in Law, by Alexis I. Fragosa, Esq. “’Mental health clients have the right to explore, with the assistance of a supportive therapist, questions or issues in their lives that may be causing them concern or distress and to participate in the setting of counseling goals that are compatible with their freely chosen personal or religious values,’ says the Alliance website. LGBT activists reject this right and are pushing for a universal ban on all therapies addressing same-sex attraction.” Read more here.

 

Do We Really Want to Draft Our Daughters? by Frances Tilney Burke. “What some people conveniently forget is that some women enjoy raising their children. It’s a privilege to do so. They do not want to be taken away from their family unit by the draft, and they do not want to abdicate the responsibility of mothering to another person, to include the father (in a scenario where the mother is drafted first). In a hypothetical scenario of ‘total war,’ where the draft would go into effect, wouldn’t it make sense to leave the young mothers, or the women with potential to become mothers, at home?” Read more here.

 

Don’t Let the SJWs at the American Medical Association Neuter Your Birth Certificate, by Kylee Zempel. “If a person’s gender is detached from his sex (it is not, but for a moment just entertain the delusion), why should he care that the way he identifies doesn’t match the ‘M’ or ‘F’ on his birth certificate? If the argument goes that gender and sex are different, then why is gender identity relevant in matters of sex? Why is something so purportedly so irrelevant to one’s identity so triggering?” Read more here.

 

The Troubled Girls the Transgender Movement Ignores, by Ginny Gentles. “The young teenage girls increasingly captivated by gender ideology possess bodies and minds that are still growing and developing. The adults in their lives are responsible for guiding them safely through adolescence. Yet journalists and many other corners of society are suddenly claiming that cross-sex hormones and damaging surgeries should be readily offered to children, often citing the examples of transitions by people who are already adults.” Read more here.

 

The Left Has a Pedophilia Problem, and It’s Out in the Open, by Spencer Lindquist. “With increasing frequency, the obvious has become undeniable. Those who have a creepy obsession with involving children in their sexual tastes, and use any avenue at their disposal to do so, either have a direct sexual interest in children or want to run cover for those who do. The left has a pedophilia problem, and it’s only getting worse.” Read more here.

 

Biological Sex in Sydney, by Katherine Deves. “Every protected group should have the right to advocate for their interests and to facilitate discussions that impact those interests, yet the City of Sydney Council do not believe women are entitled to that right. Denying modest resources to a woman-centred legal service for daring to question the controversial belief that ‘transwomen are women,’ the Council have joined the ranks of other Australian institutions that are in thrall to gender identity ideology.” Read more here.

 

Let’s Celebrate the Best Year in Decades for the Preborn’s Right to Life, by Tim Goeglein. “In the first half of 2021, in states across America, 90 pro-life laws have been passed and signed into law – a new record (the previous record was 89 in 2011)… But there is a key difference between 2011 and 2021… In 2021, rather than passing laws against something, state lawmakers are passing laws for something – the right to life for the preborn child.” Read more here.

 

The Hyde Amendment Is Popular. Why Do Democrats Pretend Otherwise? by Kimberly Ross. “The leftist media portrays a majority as wholly supportive not just of abortion but also its federal funding. This could not be further from the truth. Abortion is a polarizing topic in the discourse, but wide support for unrestricted, government-funded abortion simply does not exist. That narrative is driven by those who wish to see it become reality.” Read more here.

 

Time to Overturn Roe v. Wade, by Star Parker. “It is no accident that following the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, we have seen a collapse of the American family and now the general collapse of birth itself… A society without family and children, with increasing drug overdoses and suicides, with reports of far too great a frequency of individuals pointlessly murdering people they don’t know, is a society whose soul is in bad shape. Restoring sanctity of life in the womb is a good place to start turning things around.” Read more here.

 

Roe v. Wade Got Its Legal History Wrong, by John Finnis and Robert P. George. “The Fourteenth Amendment bars States from depriving ‘any person of life’ ‘without due process of law’ or denying ‘to any person’ ‘the equal protection of the laws.’ It was adopted against a backdrop of established common-law principles, legal treatises, and statutes recognizing unborn children as persons possessing fundamental rights.” Read more here.

 

Mississippi Seeking to Become ‘The Safest Place in America for an Unborn Child,’ by Denise Burke. “Mississippi and other states should be free to pass commonsense laws through their democratically elected representatives without interference from the courts. There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits states from regulating abortion; in fact, the U.S. Supreme Court has already repeatedly held that states are free to regulate abortion to protect unborn children, maternal health, and the dignity of the medical profession. That is exactly what Mississippi did here.” Read more here.

 

We Can’t Solve the Sexual Assault Problem Unless We Solve the Porn Problem, by Greg Teague. “There has been little recognition of the destructive impact pornography has on the perception of what is appropriate sexual conduct. The sex industry debases and exploits women. Men are wholly capable of having fictitious and ‘satisfying’ interactions with women where the concept of consent and rejection are entirely absent. The issue of sexual assault can never truly be tackled unless we can solve the problem of pornography.” Read more here.

 

Gender Ideology Run Amok, by Abigail Shrier. “How did we get to this point? How is it that we are all supposed to pretend that the only way you can know I’m a woman is if I tell you my pronouns? How did we get to an America in which a 13-year-old in the State of Washington can begin ‘gender affirming’ therapy without her parents’ consent? How did we get to an America in which a 15-year-old in Oregon can undergo ‘top surgery’ – elective double mastectomy – without her parents’ permission?” Read more here.

 

The Urgency of Ending Roe v. Wade, by Roger Wicker. “Science has been pivotal in shifting many hearts and minds on abortion. Written in 1973, Roe could not comprehend that expectant parents would one day use sonograms to look at their unborn children’s hands and feet and see themselves in the faces of their offspring. We now know that the fetal heartbeat begins as early as six weeks and that an unborn child can feel pain at 20 weeks, if not earlier. These realities weigh heavily on the hearts of millions of Americans, and they are driving pro-life change in state after state.” Read more here.

 

Don’t Believe a Man Can Be a Woman? Prepare to Be Labeled an Extremist, by Shea Bradley-Farrell. “If this bill passes, the insanity we have witnessed since the Obama administration – biological males in female safe spaces like locker rooms and on sports teams – will be enshrined into our civil rights law. Public facilities will be forced to allow a man who ‘self-identifies’ as a woman to use and benefit from the same facilities, programs, or funding that biological women do. ‘Self-identification’ means there are no legal or medical standards to reach under this legislation; if a man says he’s a woman, presto, he’s a woman.” Read more here.

 

House Forces Taxpayers to Fund Abortion, Even After Speaker Pelosi’s Bishop Confirms Church Stance on Issue, by Rebecca Downs. “Abandoning Hyde was something supported by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), even after Archbishop Salvadore Cordileone of the Archdiocese of San Francisco issued a reminder last week that ‘no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it.’” Read more here.

 

The Democrats’ Appalling Vote to Kill the Hyde Amendment, by the Editors of National Review. “The House Democrats’ unanimous support for taxpayer funding of abortion is atrocious. As common sense and multiple studies tell us, government subsidies for abortion result in more abortions. A report published in 2020 by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, a nonprofit affiliated with the Susan B. Anthony List, estimated that the Hyde amendment had spared the lives of more than 2,400,000 human beings since 1976.” Read more here.

 

California May Require Public Colleges to Provide Free … Men’s Menstrual Products? by Stephen Green. “I’ll concede there might be some merit … to Chen’s argument in favor of putting free menstrual products in the ladies’ rooms. But men’s menstrual products? AB-367 isn’t about providing an inexpensive necessity to women who might have gotten caught unawares. Garcia’s bill is about using taxpayer money to comfort the delusions of a very few who believe that they might somehow, all biology aside, magically get a period this month. Because science.” Read more here.

 

‘Truly the End of Female Sports:’ Athletes and Congresswomen Fight Transgender Takeover, by Maggie Hroncich. “As a coach, Cynthia said it breaks her heart to see her students give up after realizing they often can’t physically compete with males. One of her students who had been training and preparing for a race was beaten by a male who two weeks prior decided he would compete, and was able to run faster than any of her times. Cynthia said this student didn’t want to include her performance on college applications, because she didn’t see a point since the male athlete took away her chance to compete in state championships.” Read more here.

 

Students of Faith Should Have Confidence in the First Amendment, by Nicole Russell. “Anti-discrimination laws were put in place to quell true bigotry. They were not designed to see people of belief gaslit into believing they are bigots. Even in 2018, when this University of Iowa lawsuit originally began, it was hard to believe any court took seriously the claim that a faith-based club requiring its leaders to be religious was discriminatory. Undoubtedly, a university or college campus might be an alienating or frightening place for a political conservative or person of faith to thrive.” Read more here.

 

The Case for the Unconstitutionality of Abortion, by Josh Hammer. “According to Finnis, unborn children are properly understood as ‘persons’ under the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause, and state-level homicide laws therefore cannot discriminate by protecting live people but not unborn people. The upshot under this logic is that overturning Roe and its 1992 successor Planned Parenthood v. Casey would not merely return abortion regulation to the ambits of the various states… Rather, it would mandate banning the bloody practice nationwide.” Read more here.

 

Women Deserve Full Information About Abortion’s Effects, by Emily Gerlach. “The association between abortion and an increase in mental health problems is statistically significant. Abortion interrupts the hormonal cycle in a similar way to a miscarriage. Women who have had an abortion are consistently shown to be at a greater risk of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, grief, suicidal tendencies, and post-traumatic stress symptoms.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Set to Ignore Abortion Transparency Requirement, by Melanie Israel. “…[S]imply notifying a policyholder at the time of enrollment that there will be an abortion surcharge falls short of what is statutorily required. The abortion surcharge may, in some cases, be buried in pages upon pages of plan documents. And after this ‘notice,’ the abortion surcharge would be essentially hidden from consumers within a monthly premium that is collected in a single—again, not separate—payment. For consumers with sincere moral or religious objections to abortion, the proposed rule is particularly harmful.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Call for a UN Inquisition Into America Is Even Worse Than It Seems, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “After a couple of weeks, the experts will publish their reports with a summary judgment on the status of racism, health (including reproductive health), religious freedom, and other issues in America. The reports will have been largely prepared in advance as is typical. And they will find that the U.S. is a uniquely racist and sexist country. They will blame U.S. laws and policies protecting the religious freedom of Churches for the oppression of women and sexual minorities.” Read more here.

 

Why We Need a Pro-Life Constitutional Amendment Even if the Supreme Court Modifies Roe v. Wade, by Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty. “Jacobs argues strenuously that the movement should seek the ‘constitutionalization’ of a general nationwide ban on abortion. The argument is that the Constitution protects human life whenever it exists – and an unborn fetus is a human life, entitled to government protection from anyone who would kill it.” Read more here.

 

Exhibit A in the History of How the Transgender Movement Domesticated the Press, by Jonathon Van Maren. “If one day on the other side of this madness, somebody wants to write a history of how the transgender movement domesticated the press, Exhibit A will be the way they leaped to obey each time a celebrity announced that he or she was switching genders and declared that they wanted to be addressed by the pronouns of the opposite sex.” Read more here.

 

Transgender Policy and the Willful Demoralization of the American Military, by Kurt Schlichter. “…[I]f you genuinely believe that men and women can mutilate their genitals, change their clothes, and become the opposite sex, you are unfit for military service. At any rank, in any position. Full stop. But these men don’t really believe it. They are motivated by varying combinations of a desire to get promoted and a fear of getting fired. These are … men who don’t have the spine to speak an obvious yet suddenly unspeakable truth. Men who will force out of service everyone who isn’t also a coward in order to maintain uniformity.” Read more here.

 

Inconvenient Truth: No One Actually Changes Gender, Only Persona, by Walt Heyer. “Because sex change is physically impossible, contortions to language are necessary in order to sell the procedures. Preferred terms for attempting the change have evolved over the years. ‘Sex change’ became ‘sex reassignment,’ then ‘gender reassignment,’ followed by ‘gender affirmation.’ The attempts to physically change gender and sex through ‘affirmative’ surgery are in vain.” Read more here.

 

The Left Keeps Trying to Codify Roe. This Time, It’s Also Slashing RFRA, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “Together, these bills form a nefarious trio: one requires federal health care programs and facilities to cover abortion, one ensures taxpayer dollars flow to abortion providers, and one invalidates virtually all state limitations on abortions, thereby codifying abortion policy on a national level. Pair this with the EACH Act’s explicit denial of RFRA protection for employees who refuse to participate in the termination of unborn life based on their religious beliefs, and the stage has been set for another battle royale.” Read more here.

 

New Book Reveals Planned Parenthood’s Abortion Fixation: A ‘Positive, Moral Good,’ by Katie Yoder. “In her memoir published on July 27, Dr. Leana Wen details her time spent as president of the nation’s largest abortion provider: Planned Parenthood… Among other things, she says she was told to say ‘abortion’ in ‘every media interview.’ Someone else also warned her that ‘If we don’t talk about abortion openly, loudly, and proudly, as a positive moral good, then we are further stigmatizing it.’” Read more here.

 

8 Facts You Should Know About the Abortion Pill, Which Kills Babies and Hurts Women, by Micaiah Bilger. “…[M]ost of the reports about the abortion pill do not tell the whole truth. One would be hard pressed to find any that mention the unborn baby. BuzzFeed referred to the unborn baby as a ‘pregnancy [leaving] the body’ – as if pregnancy is a thing rather than a condition and the unborn baby does not exist. So here are eight facts about the abortion pill that the mainstream media is neglecting to tell women…” Read more here.

 

Mississippi Takes Aim at Roe, by Kathryn Lopez. “We won’t be a healthy society until we realize that what we’re doing as a nation under Roe is not only killing more than a million children a year and leaving behind a trail of sorrow, but killing the soul of this nation. Roe makes no sense constitutionally or any other way. The Mississippi case is about more than overturning Roe; it’s about saving us from the culture of death that we’re immersed in.” Read more here.

 

Meet the CDC-Backed Groups That Want to Teach Trans Ideology to Kindergartners, by Patrick Hauf. “Children in Grades 3-5 are taught about masturbation, hormone blockers used to transition pre-pubescent children, STDs, and the differences between cisgender, transgender, nonbinary, and ‘gender expansive.’ Grades 6-8 are taught about abortion, contraception, and differences between vaginal, oral, and anal sex… Dr. Susan Greenwald, a retired pediatrician in Nebraska who worked with childhood victims of sexual abuse for 35 years, said the standards are closer to ‘grooming’ than age-appropriate education.” Read more here.

 

University of Iowa Again Found to Be Discriminating Against Religious Groups, by Jonathan Turley. “In a July 16 decision, the Eighth Circuit affirmed that the University of Iowa administrators violated the First Amendment rights of … the InterVarsity Graduate Christian Fellowship. While the group allowed anyone to join, it required its leaders to adhere to core Christian values.  It is another major victory for religious rights… It is also a serious rebuke of the University which defiantly continued to discriminate at not just great cost to these students but the university as a whole.” Read more here.

 

Nancy Pelosi’s Abortion Defense Signals Alarming Trend, by Katie Yoder. “As for Speaker Pelosi, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco responded directly: ‘Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it’ …It’s a difference the media should note: Just because a politician ties his or her faith to abortion, doesn’t mean they belong together.” Read more here.

 

The Bible Is Clear: Transgender Ideology Is Incompatible With Christianity, by Tyler O’Neil. “Ferguson noted that in modern America, ‘gender has become divorced from biology.’ He recounted that his interactions with gender dysphoric friends taught him three key lessons: that gender dysphoria is real and involves real suffering; that uncertainty on these issues is pervasive, especially among Christians; and that Christian engagement requires compassion and clarity.” Read more here.

 

Chicago Is Wrong on Condoms for 10-Year-Olds, by Laura Hollis. “…[A]ccording to Fox, these children are developmentally capable of having sex and of making the responsible choice to use a condom during sexual intercourse. In fact, he says as much in the article: ‘Young people have the right to accurate and clear information to make healthy decisions.’ So, a middle schooler having sex qualifies as a ‘healthy decision?’” Read more here.

 

In Louisiana, Legislators Fall Short of Saving Women’s Sports, by Sarah Parshall Perry. “Until or unless the Supreme Court hears a challenge to a state law protecting women’s sports or one based on the federal government’s reinterpretation and application of Title IX spawned by last year’s Bostock decision, women’s right to fair play in Louisiana, at least for the time being, remains on the bench.” Read more here.

 

Mississippi’s Case Against Roe, by the Editors of National Review. “The brief notes that just last year, the five justices who agreed to strike down an abortion regulation could not agree on the basis for doing it, and the five justices who agreed on what Casey meant did not reach the same judgment in the case. The justices’ inability to devise a predictable set of rules that protects abortion from legislatures, gives them some leeway to set policy, and has some plausible grounding in the Constitution does not stem from any lack of cleverness on their part. The thing cannot be done.” Read more here.

 

EU Commission Will Sue Poland and Hungary at the EU Court Over LGBT Issues, by Stefano Gennarini, J.D. “This is the latest escalation of the ongoing culture war between the European Commission and Poland and Hungary. The Commission is the most powerful organ of the European Union. It controls the EU budget. It sets EU rules for all aspects of trade and governs the EU bureaucracy. The Commission has been openly critical of Polish and Hungarian politicians and their policies to protect life and family, and is not afraid to use all tools available to put pressure on them.” Read more here.

 

Psychotherapeutic and Behavioral Approaches to Treating Gender Dysphoria, by Anonymous. “The ‘affirmative’ model of care for patients with ‘gender’ identity disturbances essentially fast-tracks vulnerable people into a life dependent on exogenous hormone supplementation and surgical after-care, without helping them resolve their underlying psychological issues. The supposed scientific evidence supporting these ‘affirmative’ approaches is based on smoke and mirrors. This has resulted in many harms.” Read more here.

 

In Praise of Texas’s Abortion-Ban ‘Trigger’ Law, by Kevin D. Williamson. “It is difficult to say whether the Supreme Court actually will overturn Roe and its companion cases, but if five of the justices were to muster enough self-respect to do their job, it is likely that the ruling would be followed by some considerable civic disturbance and political violence, because that is how Americans do things, now. Better to have the law on the books before the riots start.” Read more here.

 

Senate Republicans Are Determined to Get to the Bottom of Planned Parenthood’s PPP Loans, by Rebecca Downs. “The Small Business Administration (SBA) approved funds for Planned Parenthood it was not supposed to, to the tune of $80 million… Last August, then Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) spearheaded an effort to demand accountability on the loans, and if Planned Parenthood knowingly committed fraud to obtain these loans. Since then, even with Sen. Loeffler out of office and their party now in the majority [sic], Republicans have not let up.” Read more here.

 

We Are Doctors. Here’s the Truth About Transgender Females’ Bodies and Athleticism, by Michelle Cretella and Quentin Van Meter. “Studies have identified more than 3,000 genes that are differentially expressed in male and female skeletal muscle. Obvious bone differences due to a combination of genetics and hormones even exist at birth; the average male is heavier and taller than the average female and this advantage continues, when controlled for stage of puberty, throughout life. Genetics is why a male who self-identifies as female remains male, and giving estrogen to a male does not transform him into a female.” Read more here.

 

We Should Defund Colleges and Universities That Distribute Abortion Drugs, by Rep. Chip Roy, Sen. Steve Daines and Kristan Hawkin. “In California, abortion activists recently helped pass a law mandating every public college and university to make abortion pills available to pregnant female students, without exception. This move to dramatically expand abortion on college campuses essentially converts every student health center into another Planned Parenthood and turns dorm rooms into potential abortion clinics.” Read more here.

 

You Have a Right to Be Transgender. You Don’t Have a Right to Expose Yourself to Women, by Dennis Prager. “Within the lifetime of even the youngest person reading this column, exposing the male organ to strangers … was considered sick and criminal. Men who did it were arrested and charged with indecent exposure, and rightly so. In the span of a few years, thanks to the schools people still send their children to, and thanks to the media people still watch, listen to and read, exposing one’s penis is to be considered wholesome and not only legal but a fundamental civil right.” Read more here.

 

Medical Professionals and School Districts Are Denying Girls Access to Mental Health Services, by Ginny Gentles. “…[P]arents with daughters who have historically struggled with anxiety, body image, obsessive thoughts, and eating disorders are being told that any expression of gender dysphoria, commonly known as a transgender identity, must be affirmed and validated. Rather than partner with parents, doctors, mental health professionals, and public school staff ignore the child’s mental health anguish, and focus only on validating their gender confusion.” Read more here.

 

Sports Illustrated’s New Transgender Cover Model Is the Latest Harbinger of Our Confusing Future, by Jonathon Van Maren. “…[E]very time a trendy ‘trans girl’ takes another award or prize or spot from an actual female, the space allotted to women shrinks. That said, biological men identifying as women and winning beauty pageants and landing on swimsuit covers has got to be some sort of feminist nightmare: patriarchy combined with crude objectification. To many trans activists, being gawked at and catcalled like a real girl is the goal, not an irritating part of life in a pornified culture.” Read more here.

 

Why Free Online Porn Should Be Banned, by Anthony Leonardi. “On a foundational level, our country enacts laws that protect the least of us, particularly children, from becoming victims. Neither federal law nor the Constitution permits obscenity or child pornography. But a proactive, commonsense porn law, like banning free online porn, can and should be enacted to protect them.” Read more here.

 

Abortion Is Always a Tragedy. No Hollywood Treatment Can Cover That Up, by Madeline Fry Schultz. “…[D]espite a fetus’ current residence in his or her mother’s womb, that infant is still a living, human child, one that would certainly be recognized as such if the mother had chosen to keep her baby. When she’s the first or second child, she’s a miracle, she gets a gender reveal, she has presents piled up for her at a baby shower. When she’s the accident that arrives after the parents have decided they’re done having children, she’s just a clump of cells that an abortionist can dispose of in a ‘safe and quick’ procedure.” Read more here.

 

Hey, There, IOC: Why Are You Letting Men Compete Against Women at the Olympic Games? by Donna M. “Despite the International Olympic Committee’s mission and commitment ‘to encourage fair play,’ ‘to act against discrimination’ and ‘to encourage and support the promotion of women,’ it has abandoned women. The pinnacle event for female sports is a mockery. Why? Because men are masquerading as women at Tokyo. At least three men have taken the place of female athletes at the Olympics.” Read more here.

 

The Nation’s Most Profitable Abortion Business Is Also the Main Provider of Sex Ed for Children, by Catherine Livingston, Ph.D. “According to Planned Parenthood, any sex education that promotes avoiding sex before marriage is ‘shaming’ and doesn’t work at all. In fact, in its own words and in bold print, what the abortion giant actually says is this: ‘We have to fight against abstinence-only-until-marriage/SRA [sexual risk avoidance] programs and advocate for sex education laws and funding that support the full range of sex education topics that young people need.’” Read more here.

 

Why Are Defense Department Schools Transitioning Students’ Gender Behind Parents’ Backs? by Amy Haywood. “To ‘out’ children to their parents, said the teacher, would be ‘unsafe’ and would put them ‘at risk’ at home. For these children, she claimed, school might be the only safe place for them to be their authentic selves, with their chosen ‘safe’ adult. Activist Gay-Straight Alliance sponsors are assuming the roles of medical professional and parent as they facilitate secret gender transitions at school.” Read more here.

 

The Transgender Industry Is Culling Tomboys Out of Existence, by Nathanael Blake. “The biggest sources of sex stereotypes and strict gender roles in America today are the trans movement and its allies. Many self-described feminists have knuckled under, cheering as it is said that girls should stick to dresses and dolls and that girls who like ‘boy’ things must actually be boys. The transgender movement is far more sexist than the most retrograde, fundamentalist Christians I’ve ever known — at least the latter still let their daughters enjoy basketball and PE.” Read more here.

 

‘Gender Neutrality’ Emojis Have Given Us a Pregnant Man Emoji, by Rebecca Downs. “There is also ‘a gender-inclusive alternative’ to the princess and prince emojis. The new emoji will simply be ‘Person with Crown.’ It’s all part of a consistent ‘gender neutral option’ though, as mentioned in the blog: ‘The above additions will mean that nearly all emojis can have default [sic] a gender neutral option, with choice to use a woman or man where relevant.’” Read more here.

 

Against ‘Impurity,’ by Dominic Pino. “If your idea of pornography is Playboy, we aren’t even having the same conversation. We’re so far beyond revealing pictures of models or famous actresses. However bad you think Internet pornography is, it’s worse than that, and the choices are endless. Inexhaustible supply, delivered immediately, no consequences… The church has been powerless to stop it. It feels like all we get are sermons on impurity.” Read more here.

 

No, Emma Corrin, Chest Binding Is Not ‘Cool,’ by Grace Glaser. “…[A] growing number of young girls have been practicing a technique called chest binding, which involves compressing breast tissue in an attempt to appear more masculine. Compression garments are frequently worn by transgender and ‘nonbinary’ people to diminish feelings of body dysmorphia. Despite the potentially severe consequences, chest binding has been glamorized by fashion magazines and celebrities as a means of fueling the transgender movement.” Read more here.

 

‘Birthing People’ Canceled – Along With Yet-to-be-Birthed People, by Ann Farmer. “Some have warned that the ‘birthing people’ controversy is just ‘the latest move towards a language which erases women.’ Indeed, we are fast approaching a Brave New World in which the F-word is ubiquitous but motherhood is a dirty word… The wokest of people are usually the most anti-people of people, even while they shout loudest about human rights.” Read more here.

 

Feminist Camps Clash Over Gender Ideology, Decriminalizing Prostitution, by Lisa Correnti. “Called ‘An Affirmation of Feminist Principles,’ the statement includes eight tenets… These include legalizing abortion, decriminalizing prostitution, ‘gender-transformative comprehensive sexuality education’ for children, including for bodily autonomy and pleasure, opening women-only spaces to biological men who identify as women, and free, comprehensive life-long health care that assists persons identifying as transgender to change their bodies with hormones and surgery.” Read more here.

 

Schools, Back Off. It’s My Kid You’re Transitioning, by Anonymous Author. “Without my permission or knowledge, my son’s school counsellor changed his name to a girl’s name. When I wrote to the counsellor, she ignored my emails. I was looked upon as the enemy even though I have always been my son’s biggest advocate. I was afraid to push back because I feared that the school would call in child services.” Read more here.

 

For These Booksellers, Science Is Suddenly Violence, by Madeline Fry Schultz. “It would be funny, if it weren’t so sad, to see the way progressives on Twitter responded to the ABA’s already groveling apology. ‘You’ve actively hurt people,’ reads one comment, which, as far as I can tell, is not satire. No mention of the ‘hurt’ that may be endured by thousands of young girls who permanently alter their biology to conform to an identity they might well wish to abandon when they grow up a bit.” Read more here.

 

Loudoun County Parents Discover Chilling CRT Teacher Training Material Decrying ‘Heterosexism’ and Parental Autonomy, by Kira Davis. “Got that? The role of parents role is to respect the teachers’ authority as the secondary parent in a child’s life. If any birthing person want to exercise their role as a co-parent with the state and voice their opinions about Critical Race Theory they will first need to…*checks notes*… ‘accept responsibility for their own racism, sexism, heterosexism, etc., and attempt to deal with them in a non-defensive, guilt free manner.’” Read more here.

 

Yale Professor Wants Your Kids to See Sex at Pride Parades so They’re Not ‘Homophobes,’ by Spencer Lindquist. “The assertion that ‘children might like it,’ with ‘it’ referring to adult nudity and kink, blatantly contradicts the common moral understanding that children should be entirely removed from adult sexuality. Through this statement and the entire article, it becomes apparent that this understanding is one Fischel is actively working to undermine.” Read more here.

 

Thanks to Neil Gorsuch, the Biden Administration Is Forcing Employers Everywhere to End Free Speech and Put Men in Women’s Bathrooms, by Laura Baxter. “This regime forces employers to waste enormous amounts of time and money on compliance (i.e., lawyers), Orwellian training, complaint hotlines, and redesigning perfectly serviceable bathroom facilities. And employees waste time and brain cells on continuous self-censorship, while struggling with how to stand up for their convictions without getting fired. Actual work, of course, goes on the back burner.” Read more here.

 

I Went to Drag Queen Story Hour in Washington, D.C. so You Don’t Have To, by Gabe Kaminski. “One can only hope parents did not have knowledge of the performer’s past while bringing children to the event. Her performances include dancing in stockings with pieces of green cake falling off her costume, singing shirtless with duct tape on her breasts as people touch her forehead, dancing with a black thong around her thighs, and laying down with what appears to be fake sperm across her mouth.” Read more here.

 

Radical Transgender Activism Is Proof Positive That We Have Lost Our Corporate Minds, by Michael Brown. “No one has the right to expect that a biological male, naked and fully exposed, will not come marching into the women’s area? No one has the right to expect that their children will not suffer this kind of sexual and psychological abuse? Seriously? This used to be called indecent exposure. You could go to jail for this. But not today. Today it is just a needless ‘hullabaloo,’ to quote the exact term used by the Times. We’ll get over it soon enough.” Read more here.

 

New York Times Shocked: Parents Oppose ‘Porn Literacy’ in Schools, by Ben Johnson. “In reality, parents objected to an overly explicit (and amoral) presentation being made to their children without their consent. One outraged parent told the New York Post, ‘It’s outrageous that the school is introducing pornography into a mainstream classroom and starting to indoctrinate kids. The goal of this is to disrupt families.’ That parent may not have known how right she was.” Read more here.

 

Netflix Star Dons Latest LGBT Fashion Trend to Promote Gender Confusion in Young Girls, by Jonathon Van Maren. “Corrin’s ‘first breast-binder’ photo, unfortunately, will torque the transgender craze and assist in the normalization of the medicalization of childhood, adolescence and adulthood. For many girls considering taking this step, a faux-sexy celebrity photo shoot will go a long way towards convincing them that this is a safe and normal step to take. Transgender ‘treatments’ have entered the mainstream. Protect your families. This is going to get much worse before it gets better.” Read more here.

 

2 Educators Fight for Their Jobs After Suggesting Commonsense Transgender Policies for School, by Nicole Russell. “…[W]hat’s the harm in allowing for multiple viewpoints in the spirit of tolerance? Perhaps their commonsense views would have been a jumping-off point to a different kind of debate, one that allows for tradition, logic, and science—rather than the pervasive view that transgender students should be able to waltz into whatever bathroom they desire, to the chagrin of other students and their privacy.” Read more here.

 

Trans Activist: ‘As a Non-Binary Person, My Abortion Experience Led to a Lot of Gender Dysphoria,’ by Jonathon Van Maren. “Lloyd is now both an abortion activist and a trans activist, attempting to debunk the old pro-abortion slogans about abortion being a women’s issue. Abortion activists who never accepted that pre-born children had fathers and that fathers have a stake in the future of their children are happily accepting the idea that men can get pregnant and thus also need to experience the joy of having a child killed.” Read more here.

 

Yes, a Family Competes With Women’s Careers, but Family Matters More, by Joy Pullman. “If you have a husband and children — and the vast majority of women very much want these things — it is counterproductive to acquire them only to take them out only on weekends like rented designer clothing. Not only do you miss the full experience of family life this way, you also miss the opportunity to shape your children deeply in the ways that women find so rewarding and society needs so badly.” Read more here.

 

Supreme Court Denies a Woman’s Free Exercise of Christianity, by Terence Jeffrey. “Can Barronelle Stutzman, a Christian, run her flower shop in keeping with her faith? The Supreme Court—with determinative votes cast by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and Justice Brett Kavanaugh—has effectively decided she cannot.” Read more here.

 

2021 Has Been a Banner Year for the Pro-Life Movement So Far, by Zachary Faria. “Voters have given their politicians a mandate, and in several states, those politicians have fulfilled it. This year, Arkansas passed a near-total ban on abortion. Idaho, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas have passed bills banning abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected… And Oklahoma and Texas have joined the 10 other states who have ‘trigger’ laws on the books, which would enact near-total abortion bans if the legal abomination of Roe v. Wade is overturned.” Read more here.

 

Inside UC San Francisco’s Massive Abortion Training Network, by Ben Zeisloft. “The Ryan Residency’s recruitment brochure for medical students laments that obstetrics and gynecology programs ‘do not offer routine abortion training’ and ‘spend little time discussing abortion.’ Beyond residencies, students are encouraged to attend an annual Conference on Family Planning ‘for a weekend of abortion and family planning education’ and an Abortion Training Institute to ‘learn all about abortion procedures’ and ‘abortion-focused legislation.’” Read more here.

 

Canadian Psychotherapist Says That School Teachers are Cultivating Transgender Kids, by Wyatt Claypool. “When asked if teachers specifically are pushing it on students Dr Gillies confirmed it and said, ‘Yes, I’ve interviewed teens about this,’ going on to agree with the proposition that some teachers feel ‘progressive’ by cultivating transgender children in their classroom and are not simply just following the lead of the children and often leading the children into identification as transgender.” Read more here.

 

The Transgender Lobby Wants to Rewrite the Law, by Maya Forstater. “That there are two sexes, and that people cannot literally change sex, are plain statements of fact that also align with British law… A powerful lobby group led by the charity Stonewall, which used to campaign for gay rights, has told organisations to go ‘above and beyond’ the law. As a result, we now live in a society where articulating the law is deemed an offence for which powerful people and organisations will try to ruin your life, while others look away.” Read more here.

 

Facebook-Funded Radical Trans Ideology Infiltrates UK Schools, by Ann Farmer. “Children naturally internalise such matters, and boys and girls still at the stage of believing in fairies, witches and magic spells will begin to wonder if they are really girls and boys, with predictable results: the numbers of self-identifying ‘gender questioning’ young people will rise, justifying … even more unnecessary, dangerous and irreversible ‘treatments’ and, no doubt, even more government money for sexual diversity activists to produce even more damaging material for schools.” Read more here.

 

Chinese Scientists Try to Make a Male Rat Pregnant. It’s Time to Draw the Line, by Matthew Eagan. “The ramifications for this would be extreme. Would the development of such a procedure lead to doctors being encouraged to implant uteri into biological males who identify as females so they are able to gestate children? This is just one of many questions that could and should be asked about this study and where they hope for it to lead.” Read more here.

 

Biden’s Budget Proposal Contradicts Majority of Americans Who Oppose Taxpayer-Funded Abortion, by Marjorie Dannenfelser and Tessa Longbons. “…Biden now caters to the most extreme pro-abortion voices in his party and has campaign promises to keep to an industry that spent millions to elect him. House Democrats likewise have the Dornan Amendment in their crosshairs. Their dream budget would unravel these vital protections – forcing taxpayers to pay for unlimited abortions, even up to birth, against the will of most Americans.” Read more here.

 

We’ll Tell You What ’60 Minutes+’ Won’t About How Transgender Movement Endangers Kids, by Emilie Kao. “A growing number of actual doctors in the U.S. and overseas are questioning why there is such a sudden rise in the number of children who ‘identify’ as transgender. The recent surge in the number of children expressing gender dysphoria even caused the doctors who created the ‘Dutch Protocol’ of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries to question its use on young patients with gender dysphoria.” Read more here.

 

If You Think Trans Ideology Is Infantile, You’re Not Wrong, by Jane Robbins. “Transgender mania thus is explained on a theoretical level by understanding this academic context. It simply doesn’t matter that there’s no science to support it and that rational people are baffled by it. There is no normal, no objective truth. And the experiences of the growing number of primarily young people who now regret the medical interventions imposed upon them are simply not ‘authentic.’” Read more here.

 

Academics Rush to Defend Teacher Who Taught ‘Pornography Literacy,’ Showed First Graders Cartoon About Masturbation, by Mary Margaret Olohan. “…[E]ducators defended the teacher’s methods to The New York Times, saying that she did not teach anything inappropriate… The Times emphasized that many children have already been exposed to pornography by their early teenage years and thus profit from pornography literacy classes that teach students how to assess what they see.” Read more here.

 

Gay Men’s Chorus Sings ‘We’ll Convert Your Children, We’re Coming for Them.’ They’re Serious, by Doug Mainwaring. “These are arrogant conquerors who, despite their after-the-fact protestations, are letting it be known that the rainbow flag has been firmly planted in American culture, eviscerating science, nature, and morality by rejecting the immutable truth of complementarity… Activist homosexuals and transgenders have ostensibly won this war.” Read more here.

 

Base Olympic Competition on Biological Sex, Not Testosterone Levels, by Tom Joyce. “The testosterone level policy is bunk. What matters is whether or not someone is a man or a woman. Some people have natural athletic advantages over one another. If that person is an XX chromosome woman, she should be allowed to use those advantages and compete against other women. If that person is a man with XY chromosomes, let him use those advantages to compete against other men… This isn’t an issue that should require intense debate: Accept biology and move on.” Read more here.

 

New Security and Humanitarian Compact: Advancing Women or Abortion Trojan Horse? by Rebecca Oas, Ph.D. “The Compact was not the result of an open and transparent negotiation, as UN agreements are traditionally required to be. UN donors increasingly bypass traditional negotiations to avoid having to sacrifice political priorities that lack universal support, including abortion and LGBT issues.” Read more here.

 

When Marriage Becomes a Private Matter, by Mark Regnerus. “It matters profoundly whether a society understands marriage as a public concern or merely a private matter… Divorce severs far more than a solitary marriage, even if the union has yielded no children. In-laws are commonly cut off from an ex-spouse, and friends often wind up forced to pick sides. (I refer to divorce as ‘the gift that keeps on taking.’) Both marriage and divorce have extensive social ramifications in others’ lives.” Read more here.

 

The Endgame Is in Sight: Participate in the Mass Delusion of Trans Ideology or Face Sanction, by Jeanette Ward and Jonathan David Farley. “The media uses the pronoun ‘she’ to describe biologically male students who wish they were girls, and in so doing denies science and the very basis for sex-segregated restrooms and locker rooms. If biological sex does not determine restroom usage, there is no reason to prohibit any student from using any restroom, locker room, or shower that he, she or ‘ze’ desires. ‘Indecent exposure’ becomes meaningless.” Read more here.

 

Transgenderism: Is Restroom Choice All There Is to It? by Richard Arrington. “Should we as a society encourage young people to do what feels right, even if it is wrong? Why don’t we treat the anorexic who feels like they are fat, see themselves as fat, and starves or purges as a result, like we do the gender dysphoric? Both are harmful to the student, and both are mental illnesses. Why don’t we just tell the child with social anxiety disorder, ‘it is who you are, go home and become a hermit?’ …[W]e show compassion and seek to help them with treatment.” Read more here.

 

Solving the Nation’s Violence Problem Starts With Supporting Fathers, by Ellen Sauerbrey & Richard E. Vatz. “Since the 1960s Great Society, government programs that attempted to replace the father have failed to solve the problem. In fact, they have made it worse. Despite clear evidence of the relationship between crime, gangs, poverty, and educational failure, politicians, religious leaders, and the media simply refuse to acknowledge, much less address, the primary cause: the breakdown of the family.” Read more here.

 

Trans Women Should Not Be in Women’s Prisons, by Jo Bartosch. “But fear not, there’s a procedure for filtering out the benign convicts in wigs and lippy from the baddies who might identify as trans to gain access to female victims. A Ministry of Justice (MoJ) policy, entitled ‘The care and management of individuals who are transgender,’ advises that staff with responsibility for placing male prisoners in the female estate must first complete an e-learning module on transgender identity. What could possibly go wrong?” Read more here.

 

Biden Admin’s Gender-Confused Passport Reform Is Just a Road to More Confusion, by Jonathon Van Maren. “You’ll notice … that there were a number of things that Blinken did not explain. For example, why a non-binary person — who rejects identifying as either male or female — needs ‘a gender marker.’ Or why gender identity needs to be presented on government ID. Or whether self-selecting gender eliminates the usefulness of ID in the first place. Or if government documents are really the best place for self-expression.” Read more here.

 

WaPo Promotes Children Being Exposed to ‘Kink at Pride’ in What May Be Its Most Horrifying Piece Yet, by Rebecca Downs. “The piece reads throughout as a celebration of those engaging in kink, exposing it to children, and claiming everyone else is in the wrong. They’re ‘fierce and determined role models’ and ‘Kink embodies the freedom that Pride stands for…’ It’s one thing for people to do as they please as consenting adults and in the appropriate, private setting. Literally parading it around in public is another story entirely.” Read more here.

 

This Is the Dangerous LGBTQ+ Trajectory That We Have Been Warning About, by Michael Brown. “Just look at this four-word phrase: ‘woman exposing their penis’ (and yes, never forget that he did this in the presence of girls). What kind of madness is this? A woman does not have a penis (yes, we need to remind people of this fact these days, since it is hotly disputed). And a single woman is not described by the possessive pronoun ‘their…’ And what of the dangerous trajectory in which some believe that this man has the ‘right’ to such behavior since, after all, he is trans?” Read more here.

 

EU to Orban: Back Gay Rights or Get Out! by Pat Buchanan. “Christian teachings have a pedigree that goes back millennia. But what is the source of moral authority for modernity’s doctrine that homosexuality is moral, other than some transient ideology, which Russell Kirk reminded us is political religion? What is the source of the morality that teaches same-sex unions are the equal of traditional marriage and any government that does not agree is a bigoted regime with which we ought not associate?” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Masks Abortion Agenda as ‘Gender Equality,’ by Neydy Casillas. “Simply put, the unstated purpose of Biden’s memo is to ensure access to free abortion with no limits globally, even if this means bypassing a country’s national sovereignty. The memo states that existing conditions undermine the U.S.’s ability to advance ‘gender equality’ globally because it restricts the possibility to support ‘women’s health.’ Women and gender equality are not of interest to the Biden administration, advancing the abortion agenda is.” Read more here.

California’s Latest Gender Identity Law Is Producing Predictable Consequences, by Katie Pavlich. “A California state law passed last year … allows men to be housed at prisons with women. All they have to do is identify as a woman and they’re in. No questions or judgement allowed. Sane people knew the law would have negative effects on women in California’s prisons by putting them at risk for assault and abuse. Now, six months into the practice the results have been horrific. Worse, they were completely predictable.” Read more here.

 

Biden Administration Wants to Eradicate Religious Freedom, by Liberty Counsel. “The Civil Rights Act of 1964 permits houses of worship to make employment decisions based on religion… The ‘Equality Act’ would abolish this fundamental right. Churches, synagogues, and mosques could be forced to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs with respect to LGBTQ. The Senate version of the bill states that ‘Q’ stands for ‘Queer.’ This term can include the LGBTQ agenda as well as a long list of paraphilias, including ‘minor attracted individuals’ (pedophilia).” Read more here.

 

Critics Slam Washington Post Article Encouraging ‘Kink Culture’ for Children, by Mary Margaret Olohan. “Greenwald added: ‘The problem is that when a highly funded social movement succeeds in all of its goals, it won’t declare victory and stop: too much money, too much activist bureaucracy and jobs at stake, so it keeps expanding to justify its own existence into unrecognizable areas.’” Read more here.

 

Women’s Sports Are Under Attack, by Nicola Williams. “No one has a human right to compete in the Olympic Games. Nonetheless, in 2015, … the IOC reviewed its 2003 policy. The new policy ditched not just the testes-removal requirement but all three of the old criteria, opening up eligibility to compete as female to many more trans-identifying males, not just transsexuals. Now all that’s needed is a declaration of gender identity, and testosterone suppression for twelve months, to a level that is still ten times higher than the typical female level.” Read more here.

 

Britons Are Fighting for American Values, by Abigail Shrier. “Gender ideology provides the ultimate test for free speech across the West precisely because its demands are so egregious, its arrogation of women’s rights so shameless, its tenets so absurd: the case for ‘reasonable minds may differ’ will never be more easily made. Fail this test, and we will soon be babbling Woke patois: ‘My pronouns are she and they.’” Read more here.
