    A father of an 11-year-old girl in West Virginia who was arrested and ultimately indicted after arranging for an abortion following a case of pregnancy following incest may head to prison — butnot for the initial crime. As LifeNews reported, Michael and Amanda Adkins were arrested on charges of child neglect causing the risk of injury. While some licensed medical professionals were involved in getting information to authorities, WSAZ-TV indicates the abortion clinic in Charleston that did an abortion did not report the clear case of statutory rape. The indictment charged Michael Joe Adkins with incest, first-degree sexual assault and...

    A group of Pennsylvania parents expressed outrage this week after learning that their seventh-grade students were taught a “graphic” sex education lesson by a group that partners with Planned Parenthood. KDKA News reports parents at the Hazelwood location of Propel Charter School in Pittsburgh said their young students were told graphic details about oral sex during a recent science class. The parents recently met with the principal to discuss their concerns. A parent who asked to remain anonymous told the news outlet what her daughter told her about the class: “‘We said we didn’t know what it meant, and he...
  • Under Trump, Family Planning Funds Could Go To Groups That Oppose Contraception

    National Public Radio ^ | May 23, 2017 | Sarah McCammon
    A newly-unveiled Trump administration proposal would not just block groups like Planned Parenthood from receiving Title X funds. It also could pave the way for a host of previously ineligible organizations — some of whom oppose contraception — to receive funds through the federal government's family planning program. While introducing President Trump at a fundraiser on Tuesday for her anti-abortion-rights group, Marjorie Dannenfelser painted a picture of what the country might look like had abortion opponents and other social conservatives not rallied around Trump in 2016. "We would be grieving the loss of support for women and children as pregnancy...

    The Oregon woman who shot and wounded a Wichita abortion doctor 25 years ago and firebombed several clinics in three states has been released from federal prison, causing concern among clinic operators who worry her release could spark a new wave of attacks. Rachelle "Shelley" Shannon, whose actions triggered a federal investigation into the possible existence of a nationwide conspiracy of anti-abortion terrorists intent on shutting down abortion clinics, left the Waseca Federal Correctional Facility in Minnesota on Monday and was being transported by bus to Portland, where she will be staying in a halfway house, according to her...

    One of the groups formed to fight the legalization of marijuana for recreational use has now decided it’s for the measure — but only if the Michigan legislature takes it up and amends the proposal. The Committee to Keep Pot out of Neighborhoods and Schools — a political action committee formed to fight a ballot proposal to legalize marijuana — is now urging the Legislature to take up the initiative, amend it and pass a full legalization of pot for adult recreational use. The committee hopes that if the Legislature acts, recreational use will be regulated as stringently as the...

    LOS ANGELES, California, May 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- California’s Democratic Attorney General Xavier Becerra is leading a coalition of 20 attorneys general, representing 19 states plus Washington, D.C., opposing a Trump administration rule change that prioritizes abstinence education over contraception distribution in family planning funds. In February, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that abstinence messages and natural family planning methods would be given priority in distributing $260 million worth of family planning grants. The announcement did not mention artificial birth control. In response, Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, Utah, and Wisconsin, as well as the American...

    Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren is not coming back to The Blaze, where she hosted a daily show on the conservative website's network. The decision, outlined in a published report, to permanently pull her comes less than a week after The Blaze suspended her without providing a reason.

    The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on Monday took to Twitter to question whether one of the most popular television hosts on his network was intellectually honest. Beck was criticizing Tomi Lahren, host of TheBlaze TV’s “Tomi.” Lahren has been criticized in some conservative circles after a Friday appearance on ABC’s "The View" for revealing that she supports abortion rights. “You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said. On Monday, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.” “I'm human. I will...

    ne of the biggest rising stars of conservative media could be leaving her current home in the near future. According to The Daily Caller, political commentator Tomi Lahren is apparently on her way out at The Blaze, and likely leaving the outlet by September, if not earlier. The 24-year-old firebrand, who got her start at One America News, hosts her own program at the Glenn Beck-founded network and made a high profile for herself via viral rants against liberals and causes embraced by progressives. Some of her most well-known tirades have been against Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick and ‘snowflakes’....

    Conservative radio host Glenn Beck unloaded Tuesday night on Christian leaders who remain supportive of Donald Trump, saying they have injected “poison” into the church. Beck told TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch that the U.S. can “survive” the potential presidency of Hillary Clinton “because she’s an outside source.” But he had quite a different thing to say about those in the Christian community who are choosing to stand with the Republican presidential nominee.

    The Trump administration is expected to announce Friday a proposed rule to cut family planning funding from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood that promote abortion and refer women for the procedure as a method of family planning. The new regulations would prevent abortion vendors from operating a family planning program in facilities geared toward ending life and would make abortion counseling optional – not required – while they would not allow for abortion referral. According to the executive action, Planned Parenthood and other abortion vendors would lose the funding they have been receiving under Title X, a program that...

    A taxpayer-subsidized university in New York City has established an 'exclusive fellowship for graduate students' in public health with the abortion provider Planned Parenthood during the 2018-2019 school year. While Planned Parenthood/NYC is attempting to code their work associated with the position as being a type of social justice effort, previous efforts by organizations to promote “reproductive justice” have shown that the term is nothing more than a phrase for continuously promoting the acceptance and legality of abortion. Though the position is only 'part-time', it provides several cushy benefits to students who are selected. ... In addition to being paid...

Shouldn’t we feminists be pleased by these shattered glass ceilings? ...Feminism isn’t about blind support for any woman who rises to power. The real political duplicity here is Republicans’ continued efforts to co-opt feminist language while actively curtailing women’s rights.
