    A Spartanburg, South Carolina, mom was arrested after she allegedly hit her 6-year-old son who gave his grandmother a Mother’s Day card instead of her.

One photo shows food wrappers, cigarette butts, plastic cups and perfume spread across the work space of the suspected child cybersex operator. In another image,...

    NEW HAVEN — Hannah is a 14-year-old girl, clad in leggings and an oversize T-shirt, with long brown hair that she curls around a finger. She was also born a boy. The government can’t seem to decide whether it should affirm children like Hannah. President Trump jumped from supporting workplace protections for transgender people to ending supportive policies for transgender students in public schools. The Supreme Court waffled on whether or not these kids can use the bathrooms of their identified genders, sending the question back to the Fourth Circuit. Last month, North Carolina repealed a law that forced transgender...

    The U.S. Department of Education has proselytized in our public schools on behalf Islam for many years through its "Access Islam" program. Federally funded, it is directed at children in grades 5 through 12. The Christian Action Network recently demanded that President Trump's recently confirmed Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, terminate the program.According to an article at Breitbart, a predecessor program began during the Bush administration in 2005. It "simply taught students about the traditions, culture, and holidays of Islam. Then, it became greatly expanded under the Obama administration. It has continued to develop, and now has had a greater, broader outreach.” According to the...

    Had it not been for a scheduling conflict for her normal baby sitter, 2-year-old Aaliyah Lewis might have spent the day with her grandfather. Had she not been potty-trained with repeated lashings from a belt and hanger, the toddler might not have required a trip to the hospital. And had her mother sought help right away when she saw her daughter’s injuries, the young girl might have survived. Instead, Aaliyah was baby-sat April 21, 2016, by her mother’s boyfriend, Jamarius Devonti Graham. Graham acknowledged physically punishing the toddler — spanking her 20 times with a belt and striking her with...

    For the first time in Italy, two gay partners have been legally recognized as fathers of two surrogate children. The children were born to a surrogate mother in the United States using artificial insemination, but both of the men will officially be named as its father — not just the parent who is biologically related. Judges at Trento’s Court of Appeal made the historic ruling in line with the birth certificate issued in the US, which stated the dual paternity, according to the Article 29 website. The website, which takes its name from the article in the Italian Constitution regarding...
