What the Left Has Done to Women

(Dennis Prager) As I have documented on a number of occasions, the Left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the Left is a destruction machine.

And nowhere is this damage more evident or tragic than with regard to women.

In fact, nothing demonstrates the power of left-wing ideology as much as what this ideology has done to women. So powerful is leftist ideology, it is more powerful than women’s nature.

Here are five examples:  (Read More)

We Must Acknowledge the Damage Inflicted by Transgender Ideology

(Family Research Council) There are at least 24 international LGBTQIA+ awareness days in addition to Pride Month. Some of these days are Drag Day, Pronouns Day, Trans Awareness Week and Month, and Trans Parent Day. No other subject known to humanity has been afforded such a salute on our yearly calendars as the LGBTQIA+ issue. Of course, these occasions provide political proponents ample opportunity to commemorate the day with a legislative agenda.

This was no less true last week on International Transgender Day of Visibility, which is now turning into days and weeks, with comments and legislative directives continuing from the White House, the Department of Justice (DOJ), the State Department, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), just to name a few.

On the day, President Biden stated, “Affirming a transgender child’s identity is one of the best things a parent, teacher, or doctor can do to help keep children from harm.”

Biden’s misleading statement that transgender procedures are the best practice for children was soon followed by a letter addressed to state attorneys general from the DOJ’s Civil Right Division.  (Read More)

‘Justice for the Five’: The latest on the D.C. butchered babies scandal

(Standing For Freedom Center) A little more than a week ago, members of the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) were arrested after reporting their discovery of five dismembered and mangled fetuses to the D.C. Homicide Unit, but as of now, the police have not investigated the deaths of these children and there appears to be no plan to do so.

The details of this tragedy are confusing because there has been little official government response, and the corporate media has focused almost exclusively on the actions of the PAAU activists, rather than the reality that five unborn third-trimester babies may have been tortuously killed in violation of federal law.

How did these activists happen to come into possession of these aborted babies?

Members of PAAU held a press conference on Tuesday in coordination with Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue, and other pro-life advocates to give their version of the events. During their hour-long presentation to the media, they explained that the bodies of 115 aborted babies, including the five third-trimester children, were provided to them by a truck driver who had come to pick up “biomedical waste” from the Washington Surgi-Clinic.

Terrisa Buckovinac and Lauren Handy, two of the group’s members, had gone to the clinic on March 25 to commemorate the “Day of the Unborn Child” by providing alternative pregnancy resources to women, or what they call a “pink rose rescue.”  (Read More)

Parents who are ‘tired of it all’ continue making inroads

(American Family Network) The Republican Party of Wisconsin went three for three last week when Mark Borowski, Marquell Moorer, and Karrie Kozlowski were elected to the Waukesha School Board. The three ran promising to cleanse the school district of instruction in critical race theory (CRT). After the official election results were in, Kozlowski told “Fox & Friends” that the district, school administrators, and teachers all said CRT wasn’t being taught. She argues it was.

“The school district of Waukesha and the state of Wisconsin’s [Department of Public Instruction] are providing profession development training specific to CRT,” said the newly elected school board member. “So, if the training is happening at the professional level, it is going to trickle into the classroom. It’s there.”

Kozlowski reported that she and the two other new board members will focus on academics instead of woke social indoctrination.  (Read More)

‘Polyamorous, Gender-Fluid, Witch’ Crows About Teaching Four-Year-Olds About ‘Crazy’

(RedState) As the left-wing media continues to insist that untold numbers of teachers across America don’t “teach” young children about gender identity, sexuality, and other such things they have zero right to drop on our kids, “educators” who do exactly all of the above continue to come forward and admit they do.

Except preschool teacher “Lois Schwartz” doesn’t just admit it, he/she brags about doing so, including in a recent TikTok video posted to Twitter by Libs of TikTok, which scours the internet for left-wing craziness, as reported by The Post Millennial.

Man, y’all thought me teaching the children about me being poly was crazy! But, not only that, but they also know that I’m gender-fluid!

At one point last year, I had explained to them that I was not Miss Lois or Mr. Lois. It’s just Lois because I’m not a boy or girl. And this was all well and good until October, when I also explained to them that I’m pagan, so I am also a witch.  (Read More)

This Leftwing Network Is Spreading ‘Progressive Education’ To Schools Throughout America

(The Federalist) Over the last year, the presence of left-wing doctrines of critical race theory and gender theory in America’s public and private schools has become unmistakable. The unrelenting push for leftism in America’s schools has not been organic, but ushered in by influential organizations.

The Progressive Education Network, which advocates for an openly leftwing approach to education in both government and private schools, is one such organization. PEN’s mission is to harness “the dynamic power of progressive practice for the next generation of students, schools, and democracy.” To this end, they aim to “nurture citizens in an increasingly diverse democracy.” The organization also expresses a “commitment to diversity, equity, and justice.”

PEN also obviously intends to exert its ideological will on the American social and political landscape. Its website notes that the organization “responds to contemporary issues from a progressive educational perspective” and “encourages progressive educators to play an active role in guiding the educational vision of our society.”  (Read More)

The Western Leftist Absolutely Wants to Introduce Sex to Your Small Children, Here’s Proof

(RedState) Despite being separated by a large body of water, the leftists of the western half of the globe are pretty united. They are, after all, an ideological hive mind with a singular shared goal of cultural domination.

One of their primary goals is to make your children loyal little foot soldiers for their cause. When tyrants used to want to control the kids they would make textbooks biased to the narrative of the state and would have schools teach a very politicized form of education. To be sure, the left still wants to do that to your child, but today’s leftist doesn’t want to just tell you that the state is good and specific groups are bad. They want to bring your children into a hyper-sexualized circle.

Today’s radical leftists have some sort of obsession with grooming children. They want your kids hyper-focused on their genitals, on the genitals of others, masturbation, sex, sexuality, and gender identity. They want your small children to sexually experiment and explore. They want them introduced to concepts that children shouldn’t be overly concerned about until later on in their teen years.  (Read More)

California Democrats Admit Bill Would Allow Infanticide Up to 28 Days After Birth

(Life News) I recently told you about California Assembly Bill 2223, which contains a provision preventing any person from being subject to civil or criminal liability “based on actions or omissions with respect to their . . . alleged pregnancy outcome, including . . . perinatal death.” You may recall that the “perinatal” period covers roughly from 28 weeks of pregnancy to 1-4 weeks post birth.

Based on our legal analysis of Assembly Bill 2223, and Maryland Bills 626 and 669, we informed you that the legislation – as proposed – could handicap the investigations into the deaths of newborns and effectively legalize infanticide.

Despite the plethora of “fact check” articles that have denied and downplayed the stark truth of what we’ve been saying about these bills, we now have an official analysis provided by the Chief Counsel for the pro-abortion majority California State Assembly Committee on Judiciary, stating that “the ‘perinatal death’ language could lead to an unintended and undesirable conclusion.”  (Read More)

Biden Administration’s Proclamations on Transgenderism Threaten Religious Freedom

(Breakpoint) A little over a week ago, the White House issued a series of documents for the “International Transgender Day of Visibility.” Even more than revealing a new progressive “baseline” when it comes to politics and gender, these documents foreshadow new and real threats to religious freedom. 

For example, a statement from the Office of Population Affairs claimed that so-called gender-affirming treatment “improves the mental health and overall well-being of gender-diverse children and adolescents.” In this case, however, gender “affirming” means to encourage grade-school children to question their gender and, once they do, provide them with puberty blockers and hormone therapy to help them reject their bodies. In some cases, the document says, adolescents should even have access to so-called “gender-affirming surgery,” a procedure which removes or destroys perfectly healthy body parts and is irreversible.   

In recent months, states such as Texas and Florida have taken legislative steps to prevent children from being subjected to such mental and physical harm.  (Read More)

New Video Exposes Disney’s Real Agenda After Protesting Parental Rights

(Townhall) Disney has been a loud opponent of the legislation and executives have repeatedly mischaracterized or lied about what the legislation actually accomplishes. The company vows to keep fighting DeSantis over the legislation.

“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country,” Disney released in a statement.

But new video shows Disney employees have a much deeper agenda.  (Read More)

California About To Legalize Infanticide

(Faith & Freedom) Earlier this month the Maryland Legislature was considering what they called the “Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act of 2022” which cleared the way, legally, for infanticide.

It seemed too evil to be true.

It wasn’t just another abortion expansion bill, it actually let responsible parties off the hook when a child born alive from abortion is allowed to die or is actively killed, even weeks later due to neglect.

Fortunately, Maryland’s Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, was pro-life enough not to approve it—so he vetoed it.

But California is another matter. As it moves its bill to “Permit Infant Death by Neglect,” the Governor is waiting to sign it.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is insisting this kind of legislation become the global norm.

Be informed, not misled.  (Read More)

Whatever Happened to the Library Smut Bill?

(Idaho Family Policy Center) Rep. Chad Christensen (R-Ammon) was recently suspended from Facebook. His offense? Sharing photocopied pictures of books available in the children’s and young adults’ sections of local libraries.

The images were undoubtedly pornographic. For example, one illustration from the graphic novel Gender Queer portrays a character performing oral sex on a teenage boy.

Shockingly, Gender Queer is available in the Boise High School Library, as are other graphic novels like Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, which graphically depicts a young lesbian girl masturbating and performing sex acts on her girlfriend.

As Rep. Chad Christensen told me a few weeks ago, “It is ironic that Facebook put me on a three-day suspension for posting materials that our children can access in their school libraries.”  (Read More)

A tale of two abortion laws: Idaho governor signs heartbeat bill, while Colorado passes law guaranteeing abortion

(Standing For Freedom Center) Idaho’s governor has signed into law a six-week heartbeat bill modeled after Texas’ landmark law, which the Supreme Court allowed to go into effect last September. Idaho’s new law bans abortions after six weeks, or when a heartbeat has been detected, and allows the father and other family members of the unborn child to civilly sue an abortionist who breaks the law.

Meanwhile, in Colorado, the Democrat-dominated legislature passed the Reproductive Health Equity Act, which codifies the right to an abortion at any point during pregnancy into law and states plainly that fetuses have no legal rights. It passed on a straight party line vote in both houses of the General Assembly, with not a single Republican supporting it. Democrat Gov. Jared Polis has said he will sign it.  (Read More)

Planned Parenthood Will Stop Killing Most Babies After Idaho Governor Signs Texas-Style Heartbeat Law

(Life News) Planned Parenthood leaders in Idaho confirmed that they will stop aborting unborn babies with detectable heartbeats as a result of the new state heartbeat law.

Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the pro-life legislation into law Wednesday, banning abortions on unborn babies once their heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Much like the Texas heartbeat law, the Idaho legislation has a private enforcement mechanism that allows individuals to sue abortionists who violate the ban.

The Idaho Statesman reports abortion facilities in Idaho will comply with the law.

“The reason we are going to stop (providing some abortions) is because the financial consequences could be devastating to not only me but my staff,” Dr. Erin Berry, an Idaho abortionist with Planned Parenthood, told the Statesman. “In one day, you could be sued for six figures.”  (Read More)

What Are Women For?

(Breakpoint) Our culture has long struggled with the realities of sexual difference, or “gender.” While first- and second-wave feminism generally asserted that women were equal in value to men, transgenderism now asserts that women are interchangeable with men. Notice the underlying assumption:  in order for men and women to have equal value, they have to be the same thing 

Yielding to this fallacy has been a disaster, not just for the concept of gender, but also for the concept of human dignity. It’s as if many think there’s not enough of it to go around. 

The Church should be able offer clarity. Christians must insist that men and women are real. We must also insist that fact doesn’t compel a competition. There is no hierarchy of human dignity.  (Read More)

Yes, Gender Clinics Are Performing Sex-Change Operations on Minor Children. We Have the Receipts.

(PJ Media) Here is an ethical analysis on PubMed discussing mastectomies on minors called “Mastectomy and Chest Masculinization in Transmasculine Minors: A Case Series and Analysis by Ethical Principles,” written in 2021.

The opening line reads, “Mastectomy for chest masculinization is a commonly performed gender-affirming surgery in minor patients, a vulnerable population with unique developmental and psychosocial needs.” [Emphasis mine] The analysis highlights a 16-year-old patient who tried to remove her own breasts and was then given a double mastectomy. Imagine enabling the self-harm of a mentally ill person who tried to cut off her breasts instead of committing her for psychological help! But that’s what’s happening! The medical establishment has gone completely bonkers. 

Aharon’s research has found hundreds of clinics that are performing this irreversible surgery, and more, on minors for tens of thousands of dollars. “Ten years ago there were a handful of gender clinics for children. Now, thanks to Gender Mapping Project, we know there are over 200 in North America. And we are still counting,” she told PJ Media. One of the lies that the fact-checkers tell is that “puberty blockers” are not hormones and they are “reversible.” Aharon disagrees.

“Lupron is an end-stage cancer drug and it causes all kinds of harm in the bodies of children,” she said. “Puberty is a very important time in a young person’s life where their brain develops.”  (Read More)

No, School Boards Are Not ‘Banning Books’

(Daily Signal) Accusations of left-wing free speech authoritarianism—whether through corporate restrictions, the state targeting “misinformation,” the shouting down of dissent in universities, or the canceling of dissenting voices—are well-documented. Attempting to even the ledger, liberals have begun alleging that conservatives are engaging in “book bans” in public school districts.

The newest outrage on this front comes from a ProPublica investigation in which Superintendent Jeremy Glenn of Granbury Independent School District in North Texas is taped saying chilling things like: “I don’t want a kid picking up a book, whether it’s about homosexuality or heterosexuality, and reading about how to hook up sexually in our libraries.”

(“Minutes later,” reports ProPublica, “after someone asked whether titles on racism were acceptable, Glenn said books on different cultures ‘are great.’”)

ProPublica repeatedly refers to the efforts of a volunteer committee set up to review titles as a “book ban.” This is a category mistake. Public school curriculum and book selection are political questions decided by school boards. Schools have no duty to carry every volume liberals demand.  (Read More)

Finnish MP wins on all charges in major free speech trial

(ADF International) A Finnish court has upheld the right to free speech by dismissing all charges against Finnish MP Päivi Räsänen and Bishop Juhana Pohjola. In a unanimous ruling the court concluded that “it is not for the district court to interpret biblical concepts”. The prosecution was ordered to pay more than 60,000 EUR in legal costs and has seven days to appeal the ruling.  

The former Minister of the Interior had been charged with “hate speech” for sharing her faith-based views on marriage and sexual ethics, in a 2019 tweet, a 2019 radio debate, and a 2004 pamphlet. The bishop faced charges for publishing Räsänen’s pamphlet for his congregation over 17 years ago. Their case has garnered global media attention this year, as human rights experts voiced concern over the threat this case posed to free speech in Finland. 

“I am so grateful the court recognized the threat to free speech and ruled in our favour. I feel a weight has been lifted off my shoulders after being acquitted. Although I am grateful for having had this chance to stand up for freedom of speech, I hope that this ruling will help prevent others from having to go through the same ordeal,” said Päivi Räsänen after her victory.  (Read More)

University Caught Storing Bags of Aborted Babies and Aborted Baby Parts

(Life News) Pro-life advocates made a disturbing discovery earlier this month in a lab at the University of Washington Department of Pediatrics: a freezer full of rows and rows of aborted babies’ body parts.

Pro-life advocates with Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, Pro-Life San Francisco and Rehumanize International said they gained access to the freezer March 9 after confronting university leaders about its unethical practices as the largest and most active fetal organ bank in the nation.

“The American people must be made aware of the mass dehumanization of these unborn children who are violently killed and thrown into a freezer, whose body parts are then portioned out to researchers in pursuit of federal funding,” said Terrisa Bukovinac, founder and executive director of PAAU.

This week, the pro-life groups published a photo of the freezer, which they said contained row after row of bags and containers of aborted babies’ body parts, labeled and prepared to be shipped to scientific researchers across the country.  (Read More)

Idaho Governor Brad Little Signs Texas-Style Bill to Ban Abortions on Babies With Beating Hearts

(Life News) Gov. Brad Little just made Idaho the second state in the nation with a Texas-style law banning abortions on unborn babies with beating hearts.

Idaho already has a law in place that will ban abortions once Roe v. Wade is overturned. The state legislature also passed a heartbeat law in 2021 that prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, but, because of current court precedent, it is not in effect either.

Until the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, neither of those abortion bans can be in force. Now, just in case the nation’s highest court doesn’t reverse the infamous decision this summer, Idaho lawmakers passed a Texas-style bill to ban abortions once a heartbeat is detected and to have a private enforcement mechanism.

The Texas law made the Lone Star State the first in the country to ban aboritons and that ban has been in effect for 204 days, saving thousands of babies from abortions.  (Read More)

Movement for Restoring Parental Rights in Schools Represents the Majority

(Daily Signal) The grassroots parental rights movement is picking up steam, and it’s pushing legislators to act.

On Tuesday, the Kansas Legislature passed a “parents’ bill of rights” that would allow parents to “inspect any materials, activities, curriculum, lessons, syllabi, surveys, tests, questionnaires, examinations, books, magazines, handouts, professional development and training materials and any other materials or activities that are provided to the parent’s child.”

It’s a notable step as many public schools don’t give the public access to this information. It can be extremely difficult for parents and the public to have any knowledge about what’s being taught in the public schools that their taxpayer dollars pay for.

That’s changing. The Kansas bill is just one piece of a much larger national puzzle. A growing movement of parents is fighting back against schools that have prioritized indoctrination and the interests of teachers unions over parents and children.  (Read More)

Police called in after Yale law students disrupt free speech panel, threaten speakers

(Standing For Freedom Center) Yale law students shouted down lawyers on a free speech panel, becoming so hostile and threatening that police had to be brought in to safely escort the speakers out.

The intent of the panel, according to a member of the Federalist Society, was to show that a liberal atheist and conservative Christian could agree on free speech and engage in civil discourse. The panel featured Monica Miller, an attorney for the progressive American Humanist Association, and Kristen Waggoner, general counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom. Miller and Waggoner were on the same side in the free speech case Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski.

Many of Yale Law School’s students were outraged by Waggoner’s inclusion on the panel. About 120 protestors showed up and shouted and stopped anyone from hearing the speakers. Protestors held signs and made threatening comments such as, “I will literally fight you [expletive].” Others pointed the middle finger and cussed the speakers. When law professor Kate Stith tried to remind students of the school’s speech policy that requires students to allow speakers to be heard, the students heckled her. After Stith told the protestors to “grow up,” the atmosphere intensified.  (Read More)

Cancel Culture Now Coming For Your Bible

(Faith & Freedom) Cancel culture has come for your Bible.

In a recent article in Time magazine, Shelley Puhak accuses biblical text of creating “a blueprint for vilifying powerful women leaders.” The Bible does so, she argues, through the story of Queen Jezebel (wife to King Ahab, who ruled over Israel in the 9th-century b.c.). Jezebel plots and executes the murder of a man in order to take his vineyard– supports pagan worship contrary to God’s law and routinely persecutes the prophet, Elijah.

This same blueprint, Puhak says, is being used today against strong women from Queen Mary I to Vice President Kamala Harris.

Portland Children’s Hospital Instructs Kids To Bind Their Genitals And Solicit Sex Shops

(The Federalist) Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland has been teaching “safe tucking” and “chest binding” to minors confused about their sex, even referring them to a local sex shop as a resource. Chest binding means putting pressure on breasts to hide them, and tucking means similarly treating male genitals.

Doernbecher, a division of Oregon Health and Science University, operates a “gender clinic” for “transgender and gender-nonconforming children and teens.” The “clinic” provides puberty suppression, hormones, and genital mutilation (under the name “gender-affirming surgery”) to children confused about their sex.

The hospital’s “Safe Tucking” handout describes ways for boys confused about their biology to hide their healthy organs. “Tucking can reduce any concerns you have about your body, how your clothes fit and how safe you feel in public,” the handout reads.

Doernbecher advises youth to use tight underwear — or even tape — to hide their genitalia. “There are two main ways to tuck: with tape and without. You might find that simply wearing tight underwear smooths things out enough,” the handout continues.  (Read More)

America Caught Between Russia and China Externally and the Left Internally

(Dennis Prager) America is caught between an external and an internal threat. The external is an economically aggressive and America-hating China and a nuclear-equipped, America-hating Russia; the internal is a non-nuclear, America-hating Left. (As I always note, “Left” is not the same as “liberal”; in fact, leftism poses a mortal threat to liberalism. The greatest contemporary tragedy in American life is that most liberals are unwilling to acknowledge this and continue to vote for the Left.)

To use one of the Left’s favorite terms, the Left poses an existential threat to America. Russia, unless it starts a nuclear war, does not. I should add that I do not discount the latter possibility. I was a high school freshman during the Cuban missile crisis, but I do not remember anyone my age or among my parents’ peers who believed the Cuban crisis would lead to nuclear war. I am less certain today. Russian President Vladimir Putin does not seem to be as rational as Nikita Khrushchev was, and Khrushchev had nowhere near the passion about Cuba that Putin has regarding Ukraine.

The Left may hate Putin, but hatred of America unites the Left and Putin.  (Read More)
