    EXCLUSIVE: The Department of Justice on Tuesday filed lawsuits to revoke the U.S. citizenship of five immigrants who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing minors in incidents determined to have taken place before they became naturalized, Fox News has learned.

    An undocumented immigrant teen who aborted her unborn baby after a highly publicized legal battle now needs mental health treatment, the government said Monday. Like so many women who have aborted their unborn babies, it appears that this vulnerable young woman is struggling with her decision. However, the ACLU has been trying to thwart the government’s efforts. On Monday, the Trump administration asked a federal judge to overturn a gag order that prevents them from sharing with doctors or other caregivers that the young woman had an abortion, the Washington Times reports. They argued that the abortion is important information...

    A pediatrician went on a viral rant recently about the dangers of convincing children they are transgender and then prescribing them hormone blockers that prevent them from developing into their born gender. What did she say? At a recent Heritage Foundation forum about the topic, Dr. Michelle Cretella went on a lengthy rant about how it is child abuse to indulge children who are gender-confused by helping them “transition” to the gender they think they are. Cretella said: Chemical castration is what you’re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers. It’s treating puberty like a disease,...

    Weiner cannot be incarcerated for long enough to punish him for what he's done. Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D – HELL), was sentenced to 21 months in prison for sexting an underage teen and asking her to perform sexual acts on Skype and Snapchat. The New York Daily News published a fairly arresting courtroom sketch of his sentencing: While “crying and grabbing tissue after tissue,” Weiner asked for probation for his crimes. From the NYDN: “I victimized a young person who deserved better,” Weiner said in court. “I am not asking that I be trusted … I ask you for...

    NEW YORK - After 12 years advocating for abortion rights, Joe Solmonese might have opted for a less divisive field of work. Instead, he is taking over leadership of the largest national gay-rights group at a time when the same-sex marriage debate rivals abortion for volatility and virulence. "My challenge is to talk about why the equality we seek is not just important to our community, but should be important to everyone," Solmonese said. "I have to believe in the optimism and fair-mindedness of the American people." Solmonese was named last week as the new president of the Washington-based Human...

    How young is too young to introduce a child to the concept of gender identity? That is a question the Rocklin Academy Schools district tried to handle after a young student revealed herself as transgender. Some parents applauded the district's efforts while others questioned whether it was handled properly. Ankur Dhawan's 5-year-old daughter was in the classroom that day. She came home and talked about what she learned. "She said, 'Well, we learned about a girl in a boy's body,'" Dhawan said. "This turned out to be a fairly decent way of introducing a topic that I wouldn't otherwise know...
