    Missouri lawmakers listened Tuesday as a woman held her infant son and told them not to ban late-term abortions. She was one of several abortion activists and pro-life advocates who testified about a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks during a Missouri House hearing, the Columbia Missourian reports. The legislation, state House Bill 1266, sponsored by state Rep. Donna Lichtenegger, R-Jackson, would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain. “If a nervous system is fully functional, it feels pain, so that’s why we are wanting to not have an abortion after 20...

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

  • Don’t Say ‘Mothers’ – It Offends Transgender People, Doctors Told

    Breitbart ^ | 01/29/2017 | Virginia Hale
    Doctors have been told to refer to expectant mothers as “pregnant people” so as not to offend transgender people, in official guidelines issued by the British Medical Association (BMA). The controversial advice appears in a 14-page booklet on “inclusive language in the workplace” which also rules that the terms ‘biologically male’ and ‘biologically female’ are problematic, and instructs doctors to instead say that the individual was ‘assigned’ male or female at birth. The union’s new guidelines come just weeks after it emerged that a British woman in the process of ‘transitioning’ gender put her operation on hold to have a...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a weekly address celebrating Mother’s Day, President Barack Obama on Saturday called for paid “paternity leave.” He also said: “let’s give mothers the respect they deserve.” “Giving flowers is always a good idea,” Obama said. “But I hope that on this Mother’s Day, we’ll recommit ourselves to doing more than that: Through deeds that match our words, let’s give mothers the respect they deserve, give all women the equality they deserve, and give all parents the support they need in their most important roles.”

    Saudi Gazette ^ | Apr 30, 2016
    IN the past, traditions and customs were such that mothers used to be blamed if their daughters went astray and engaged in unethical practices. Viewed as the protectors of their daughters, mothers were expected to take care of and raise them to be good citizens. However, such views have changed today and mothers are no longer blamed for the mistakes of their daughters. Al-Riyadh daily reports on the way modern society views the mother-daughter relationship. Dr. Salih Al-Aqeel, a criminology and sociology expert, said it was unfair for society to blame mothers for the mistakes of their daughters. “In the...

It happened the day before Mother's Day, when Melvyn, who normally needs help just walking around the block, turned up missing. Police dispatch in Little Rock, Arkansas, put out the call.

    A facebook group dedicated to criticizing 'ugly' babies proves that bullying is not just an act of teenagers. The private facebook group, which has since been removed, is composed of grown women around the country who grab photos of toddlers from other mothers' facebook pages without approval and post them online for criticizing. The group was originally designed to trade and sell children's clothing but took a nasty turn. One mother, Melissa Anetucci, of Palm Beach, Fla. has made it her mission to fight against the self-proclaimed 'mean girls group' and to expose their wildly inappropriate behavior. She began posting...

And then we realized that behind the gimmick one of these perverse projects had slipped, that with which the deconstruction fanatics want to destroy a bit more of what remains of the foundations that still structure the European societies.
