    BALTIMORE, Maryland, October 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A mother is furious after discovering that her 16-year-old daughter’s headaches and soreness were caused by a birth control implant inserted by a school nurse without her consent. Nicole Lambert was shocked to learn from her daughter’s pediatrician that the pain her daughter was experiencing had been caused by a tiny tube containing the contraceptive  “Nexplanon,” which had been improperly inserted in her daughter’s upper arm.Not only did the doctor recommend that the tube be removed to alleviate the child’s discomfort, but he further warned that the contraceptive could cause far worse side-effects, such...

    FULL TITLE: Federal Court Rules Parents Don’t Have a Right to Know When Their Daughters are Considering an Abortion A federal appeals court upheld a block Tuesday on an Indiana law that requires underage girls to inform their parents before having an abortion. A Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals panel allowed the block to remain in place, rejecting an appeal from the state that asked to be allowed to enforce the law, the AP reports. The law, which passed in 2017, strengthens current Indiana laws regarding parental rights by requiring abortion providers to obtain proof of consent from a parent...

    FULL TITLE: Nightmare Before Christmas: Uncooperative Planned Parenthood Caller Hides Crucial Info from 911 Dispatcher and Parents of Suicidal Minor Aurora, IL – It was December 24, 2018. While other families were excitedly making final preparations for Christmas celebrations, one family had much sadder plans. Even though it was Christmas Eve, a mom and dad escorted their minor daughter to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Aurora, Illinois. Once the girl was taken behind closed doors inside the clinic, the parents were left behind in the waiting room and in the dark about what was happening with their daughter. That’s...

    The transgender woman who filed gender-identity discrimination complaints against mostly poor, immigrant women for refusing to bikini wax biological male genitalia is seeking permission to hold three “topless” swims for people ages 12 and up, and parents would be barred from attending. Jessica Yaniv is scheduled to appear before the Township of Langley Council in British Columbia, Canada, July 22 at 7:00 pm to ask for permission for an “All-Bodies Swims” at three community pools where individuals, including girls as young as 12, will be permitted to be topless.

    Our public libraries have been taken over by liberal ideologues and nowhere has this been more evident than at the American Library Association (ALA) annual conference held last month in Washington DC. The world’s largest library conference, attended by 21,460 people, featured over 100 workshops with the theme “equity, diversity, and inclusion.” As you would expect, these workshops included topics such as Drag Queen Storytimes, LGBT issues, non-traditional families, minors’ “rights” to privacy, and gender confusion. According to The Federalist, “Politically charged talks and workshops like these formed at least one-third of the conference offerings.” Of all the different themes...

    The Republican governor of Vermont signed legislation this week which makes it legal for minors to obtain an abortion without parental consent. Vermont law also allows non-physicians, including registered nurse practitioners, to perform abortions. To put in perspective how radical the state's abortion standards are, consider that parents have to give their child written or verbal permission to obtain so much as an ibuprofen pill from the school nurse, but do not have to approve of their daughter's obtaining a life-altering decision like abortion under GOP Gov. Phil Scott's new law. “Like many Vermonters, I have consistently supported a woman’s...

    The House on Friday for the first time approved legislation banning anti-LGBT discrimination in a 236-173 vote. The Equality Act would expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fair Housing Act to ban discrimination in employment, housing, jury selection and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity. “This legislation will provide members of LGBTQ Americans protections from being denying medical care or being fired or thrown out of their homes,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said on the floor ahead of the vote. He said the bill would expand the definition of “who is understood...

    TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - A 3-year-old cancer patient must undergo chemotherapy over the next 28 days despite the wishes of his parents, a Tampa judge ruled Wednesday afternoon. But she did not make a decision about treatment options after that. The ruling marks the latest twist in the case of Noah McAdams, who was was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia back in April. After two rounds of chemotherapy, his parents Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland decided they wanted to try a more natural, holistic approach. When they failed to show up for a chemo appointment at All Children’s Hospital...

    April 10, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — As a Canadian father fights to stop court-ordered testosterone treatments for his 14-year-old daughter, U.S. experts warn there’s an increasing danger that more and more American parents will find themselves in a similar heartrending predicament. “Yes, it is really that bad,” Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatrics, told LifeSiteNews. “Parents are losing their right to protect their children from this dangerous medical experiment, and extended family members fare no better,” she told LifeSiteNews. The general rule that individuals under age 18 cannot consent to medical treatment is being tossed out the window...

    On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence. As previously reported, Maxine* was encouraged by her school counselor in BC’s Delta School District to identify as a boy while in seventh grade. When Maxine was 13 years old, Dr. Brenden Hursh and his colleagues at BC Children’s Hospital decided that Maxine should begin taking testosterone injections in...

    Two recent bills proposed by state legislators in Illinois and Iowa reveal a disturbing perspective on parental rights that’s becoming more prevalent in our country: the belief that parents cannot be trusted to care for their children. The Swiftly-Defeated Illinois Bill In Illinois, a little over a week ago, Democratic state Rep. Monica Bristow introduced House Bill 3560. That bill sought to amend the school code to require the Child Protective Service unit of the Department of Children and Family Services to investigate the home of a child being homeschooled “to ensure there is no suspected child abuse or neglect...

    Phil Zodhiates has been a friend and mentor to many conservative non-profits throughout America. It was he who helped make Col. Allen West's election to Congress in 2010 possible, as was the case with many other conservative candidates. Phil saved a child from terrible abuse and gave a ride to the child's mother from Virginia to Buffalo, NY. For this he has been ordered to report to federal prison tomorrow, with a three year sentence. May G-d Almighty make a miracle for him and free him. The entire story is sickening. It is also a prime example of how hedonism...

    A Minnesota mother claims her 17-year-old son received gender reassignment treatments without her consent. But after a district judge ruled against her lawsuit in 2017, Anmarie Calgaro enlisted the counsel of conservative Christian legal group, the Thomas Moore Society, who filed an appeal in August. Last month, Calgaro’s case was presented before a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit. Thomas Moore Society Special Counsel Erick Kaardal argued that Calgaro’s minor son, identified in court documents as “E.J.K.,” received “elective medical services for a sex change without her consent or a court order of...

    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    The state of New Jersey has a new regulation in its Department of Education: a provision that prevents schools from informing parents of their child's preferred gender and gender pronouns. New Jersey became the eleventh state to have a specific gender provision in its state regulations, per NorthJersey.com. The local newspaper claimed that the rules are "intended to promote a safe and successful learning environment for [children]." The regulation, which was signed into law by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, says that gender identity decisions reside with the student, not the parents, despite the fact that students are children...

    A presidential initiative called The “New Freedom Commission on Mental Health” has issued a report recommending forced mental health screening for every child in America, including preschool children. The goal is to promote the patently false idea that we have a nation of children with undiagnosed mental disorders crying out for treatment. One obvious beneficiary of the proposal is the pharmaceutical industry, which is eager to sell the psychotropic drugs that undoubtedly will be prescribed to millions of American schoolchildren under the new screening program. Of course a tiny minority of children suffer from legitimate mental illnesses, but the widespread...

    A lawsuit against a Pennsylvania school district will be filed later this month, if the district continues its refusal to allow parents to see a series of pro-LGBT videos that their children were forced to watch in April. In a June 22 letter to the East Penn School District, Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast said that Pennsylvania state law dictates that parents are entitled to all such curriculum information. Almost three thousand students at Emmaus High School were required to see the videos during the school district’s LGBT “Unity Week.” Students could not opt out, and not only were parents...

    When British hospital officials tried to pull the plug on 23-month-old toddler Alfie Evans on Monday night in arrogant defiance of his parents' wishes, many Americans took to Twitter to count their blessings that they live in a country that would not allow such tyranny. "Stories like Alfie Evans make me realize how grateful I am to live in America where freedom still exists," one young social media user wrote. "Folks, is this what we want for America? Parents rendered helpless before the gods of socialized medicine?" retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West asked. Alfie's plight comes less than a...
