  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...

  • Cheerio Challenge Goes Viral As Dads Share Photos of Cereal Stacked on Sleeping Babies

    What started as a bored Orange County father’s silly way to pass time has become a social game of one-upmanship as dads compete to stack higher and higher towers of Cheerios on their sleeping children. ... On Thursday afternoon, Quinn pulled the picture of Maxton and the Cheerios from his phone and threw it up on the site. “We’ll see what happens,” he said. “I thought five was clearly unbeatable.” But if there’s one thing dads don’t lack, it’s creativity. If there’s another thing dads don’t lack, it’s competitiveness. By the next morning, Life of Dad’s social accounts were blowing...

    So, about a week or so ago, Patrick Quinn felt trapped. He was sitting on the couch, afraid to move -- lest he woke up Maxton, his 3-week-old son who was sound asleep on his lap. Then he spotted a bowl of Cheerios by the couch. His older son had left it there because he never puts anything away. Hmm, thought Quinn, let's see if I can get one to balance on Maxton's nose. It worked. Hmm, let me see if I can get two.

    When Ronald Jackson found a text he thought was rude and inappropriate on his then-12-year-old daughter's phone in September 2013, he took the cell away. But the child's mother, Michelle Steppe, balked at his action -- and she called the police. Steppe and Jackson have not been a couple for years, and Steppe is now married to a Grand Prairie, Texas, police officer. When the police showed up at Jackson's door later that day and asked for the iPhone 4 back, Jackson refused. "At that point I decided the police don't interfere with my ability to parent my daughter," he...

  • Pro-Abortion Web Site Attacks Men Who Regret Urging Their Partner to Have Abortion

    In the world of “choice,” women and men who choose abortion experience zero regret or pain; and then when they share their stories we’re expected to agree with their decision and honor them for their bravery. However, when someone shares that they regret their abortion and that it was damaging to their mental health, they’re immediately blacklisted. For example, a recent article on Jezebel.com ridicules and dismisses a video that shares the stories of three men who regret participating and conceding to their partner’s abortion. The video titled, “The Apology,” was created by Heroic Media and highlights the need for...

    Brace yourself. This father-daughter dance is about to do some serious tugging of the heartstrings. When McKenzie Michelle Carey was 18 months old, she was diagnosed with Mitochondrial disease, a life-threatening illness that damages the cells of the brain, heart, liver, skeletal muscles, and the endocrine and respiratory systems. There is no known cure. While she isn't paralyzed, 12-year-old McKenzie can't walk or speak. "We are her voice and her legs," her mother, Tammy Carey, tells WTVR. Her disease, while limiting in many ways, doesn't stop McKenzie from performing in pageants. "Pageants give her the same opportunity as other children,"...
  • Meet the 99.999999 Percent: They’re worried about jobs and growth, not inequality.

    National Review ^ | 02/10/2014 | James Pethokoukis
    Forget about the 1 percent versus the 99 percent. It’s really more like the 0.000001 percent versus everybody else. A tiny group — mostly comprising the Obama White House, a bunch of Washington Democrats, progressive economists, and the media elite — continues to fixate on income inequality as America’s greatest challenge. Most everybody else, the 99.999999 percent, sees things differently. Surveys continue to show Americans most worried about jobs and economic growth, not the income gap between the top and bottom. It’s a rational view given new employment data from the government. The January jobs report showed only 113,000 net...

    It doesn’t debut until next month, but the Fox sitcom “Dads” is already taking heat in early reviews for being crass, sexist and exploiting racial stereotypes. Facing reporters Thursday, its stars and producers defended the show as focusing on human frailties for the sake of laughs and enlightenment. They vowed to refine it, as needed, as the season unfolds, and asked its audience not to rush to judgment. … “Dads” centers on two friends, played by Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi, whose politically incorrect fathers re-enter their lives and disrupt them. The raucous, loose-lipped dads are played by Martin Mull...

    My wife recently chaperoned a dance for junior high schoolers at a Catholic school. She working the door when another of the chaperones, a father of one of the students in attendance, hurried over and asked her what he was supposed to do about an eighth grade girl making out with an 8th grade guy in the middle of the dance floor. “That’s not ok, is it?” he asked her. “Should we be doing something about this?” The man truly didn’t know what his responsibilities were. My wife was stunned by the question. She was about to answer when another...

    In 2006, as a Probate and Family Court judge in Boston, I began hearing a case filed by a self-represented woman who requested an order that a sperm facility disclose the identity of the father of her two young daughters. She gave as her primary reason that the children suffered from health issues and needed a complete medical history from their father. As a secondary ground, she cited the children’s need for financial support. After multiple hearings and several trips between the Probate and Family Court and the Massachusetts Appeals Court, the complaint was dismissed in 2011. (The first decision...

    the children of Great Britain understand far better than their parents the reasons for the collapse of Western Civilization: lack of children, and lack of two-parent heterosexual homes. A poll of British parents showed that topping the list of children’s most-requested Christmas gifts was a sibling (Britain’s birth rate is below replacement levels, with most non-immigrant British children not having a sibling). Slightly lower down on the list was a “dad” – Britain’s single motherhood rate is 21 percent. “Less than half” of single parents have a job, and most live off of state assistance. Seventy percent of the criminals...

The 37-year-old stays at home and stays fit, completing triathlons one day and expertly negotiating naptime and tea parties the next. And he is not alone.

    First Lady Michelle Obama recalled her father's battle with multiple sclerosis (MS) as she explained "what's at stake" in this election between President Obama and Mitt Romney -- whose wife has MS. Mrs. Obama recalled her father's MS during a campaign fundraiser, saying he "had MS, was a blue-collar city worker all his life . . . [and her parents] saved for us, they sacrificed everything for us, why? Because they wanted something more for me and my brother." The First Lady summarized the anecdote by saying "that's what's at stake" -- by which she referred to the idea that...

    WEST BOUNTIFUL — In a closet inside Gary Turley's West Bountiful home, an empty spot now shows where his most valued material possession used to sit. It was a safe, containing nearly $200,000 in cash — he thought was safer there than in a bank. "It was my life savings," Turley said. "I had stuff from my grandpa, who's dead now: his pocket watch, stuff like that. My Social Security cards, Visas, passports, birth certificates, checking — everything to do with my checking (was in the safe)." How it disappeared is almost worse that losing it in the first place....
