Parental rights denied due to sexual agenda

February 16, 2018

An Ohio judge has given a 17-year old into the custody of her grandparents.  Why? Because her parents did not support her desire to transition from female to male.

Never mind that gender dysphoria was long recognized as  treatable mental disorder. Ignore the fact that nearly half of transgenders will attempt suicide (and too many succeed — and this risk is why Johns Hopkins refused to assist gender transitions for many years).  Pretend there’s no evidence that the hormones will exponentially increase cancer risk, especially for males taking female hormones.  Claim there’s no truth to the data that many transgenders regret their transitions and want to revert to the sex they were born. All that matters, any more, is the progressive indulgence of the sexual revolution’s increasingly selfish and irrational demands.

We have seen this already in divorce cases.  Janna Darnelle has written of her divorce judge’s statement, after granting her gay ex-husband everything that he’d asked for, “If you’d asked for more, I’d have given it to you,” despite his very demonstrable (what used to be known as) moral turpitude.

Now, despite years of ridicule directed at conservative voices warning against this very eventuality, and the insistence that it would never come to this from the Left, now parental rights over their own children are being overridden in the interest of furthering a destructive sexual agenda.

In my state, District Court Judges hear domestic cases, and they are elected to their positions in local elections.  Hamilton Co., Ohio, voters need to register their disapproval of this judge’s agenda-driven ruling by demanding a recall and assuring she never hold responsible public office again.

Same Sex Marriage is NOT “Just as Good” for Children

June 21, 2012

A rigorous scientific study reveals that if you choose a valid study group not the small non-random populations that homosexual activists use then the outcomes for children are far worse than when the children have their mom and their dad as parents. Not always possible of course but that does not justify lying about the facts.

The study appears in the July issue of Social Science Research. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0049089X12000610

Thanks to Austin Nimocks for pointing this out in his article at Town Hall.

Alabama Puts Planned Parenthood Clinic on Probation After Undercover Sting

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

A Planned Parenthood clinic in Alabama has been put on probation by the state after an undercover sting helped reveal that underage teens had been receiving abortions there without parental consent.

State health officials said the Birmingham, Ala., abortion clinic has until next week to present its plan to correct violations involving minors receiving abortions.

Investigators with the health department said records at the clinic showed several minors aged 13-15 had received abortions without proper verification of parental consent since November 2008.

An activist with “Live Action,” a California-based anti-abortion group, posed as a pregnant 14-year-old girl who needed a secret abortion. In an audio tape from the visit, an employee allegedly suggests that someone other than a parent or legal guardian could give consent.

NYTimes OKs Super Bowl ProLife Ad

New York Times Defends Pro-Life Ad Featuring Tim Tebow, Mom’s Non-Abortion

Update:  the Focus on the Family ad is at: http://www.focusonthefamily.com/nsc/box/video_player.aspx?video=super_bowl_ad

New York, NY (LifeNews.com) — The New York Times is no bastion of pro-life thought and has taken a consistently aggressive pro-abortion stance over the years. In what may come as a shock to pro-life advocates, the liberal newspaper issued an editorial today taking abortion advocates to task for blasting an ad featuring Tim Tebow.

As LifeNews.com has reported, the ad, sponsored by Focus on the Family, will reportedly focus on the story of Tebow’s birth.

Tebow’s mother, Pam Tebow, rejected a doctor’s suggestion to get an abortion when she became ill on a missions trip to the Philippines during her pregnancy with Tim. Tebow gave birth to Tim and he famously won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and led the Florida Gators to a college football championship.

The Focus on the Family ad has drawn attacks from abortion advocates, who have called on CBS to cancel its plans to allow the ad to air before and after the Super Bowl, and feminist attorney Gloria Allred has made the claim Pam Tebow made up her story about rejecting an abortion.

The New York Times weighed in on the debate in an official editorial titled “Super Bowl Censorship.”

“The National Organization for Women, NARAL Pro-Choice America and other voices … have called on CBS to yank it,” the Times editorial board wrote. “Their protest is puzzling and dismaying.”

The Times noted how the Women’s Media Center (for a collection of pro-abortion groups) sent a letter to CBS calling for rejecting the ad, saying the commercial “uses one family’s story to dictate morality to the American public, and encourages young women to disregard medical advice, putting their lives at risk.”

Responding to the claim, the Times calls it “a lame attempt to portray the ad as life-threatening.”

In a related article Ken Shepherd at Newbusters.com (an anti-liberal political website) quotes a story by “liberal, pro-choice sports columnist Sally Jenkins” in the other national liberal newspaper The Washington Post:. She writes:

“Are you saving yourself for marriage?” Tebow was asked last summer during an SEC media day.

“Yes, I am,” he replied.

The room fell into a hush, followed by tittering: The best college football player in the country had just announced he was a virgin. As Tebow gauged the reaction from the reporters in the room, he burst out laughing. They were a lot more embarrassed than he was.

“I think y’all are stunned right now!” he said. “You can’t even ask a question!”

That’s how far we’ve come from any kind of sane viewpoint about star athletes and sex. Promiscuity is so the norm that if a stud isn’t shagging everything in sight, we feel faintly ashamed for him.

Ten Reasons to Keep Abstinence Education in N.C.

Family North Carolina Magazine—Jul/Aug 2009

by Alysse ElHage

In recent months, there have been increasing efforts in North Carolina to eliminate the focus on abstinence-until-marriage (AUM) sex education in our public schools, and return the State to an approach that is aimed at helping students avoid the consequences of early sexual activity, rather than helping postpone that activity.

In an effort to provide parents and educators with the facts they need to make informed choices about these issues, we have compiled a list of 10 reasons to maintain the focus on Abstinence-based education in North Carolina’s public schools.

Planned Parenthood Alabama ‘Bending the Rules’ of Mandatory Reporting

July 2, 2009

Employee Admits ‘Bending the Rules’ for Sexual Abuse

This is an attempt by pro-abortion folks to deliberately undermine enforcement of current laws against statutory rape.  Does anyone reading this have standing and cause to file a complaint with the Alabama Medical Association against this Dr. Bates?  I ask rather than encourage.  This is hearsay evidence; this doctor might instead be of the complete opposite mind.

BIRMINGHAM, June 30, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Planned Parenthood counselor in Birmingham was caught on hidden camera telling an alleged 14-year-old statutory rape victim that the clinic “does sometimes bend the rules a little bit” rather than report sexual abuse to state authorities. This is the seventh Planned Parenthood clinic implicated in a multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate and unlawful suppression of evidence of statutory rape. (View video here http://liveaction.org/alabama/ )

She then tells Rose that the clinic manager, OB/GYN Dr. Desiree Bates, “sometimes does bend the rules a little bit” and states that “whatever you tell us stays within these walls” and “we can’t disclose any information to anybody.”

However, Alabama code 26-14-3 requires [emphasis mine] health professionals to disclose suspected cases of sexual abuse to state officials immediately.
