  • Leftist Bizarre Logic: Adoption Is More ‘Traumatic’ Than Abortion, But Surrogacy Is Just Great

    The only consistent conclusion is that such activists view the wants of surrogate parents as more compelling than a child’s life.The delusional leftists arguing that adoption is more “traumatic” than abortion aren’t making a convincing argument for their brutal baby death cult, but they are making a great point against the rise of surrogacy as a means for clients such as gay and “transgender” males to achieve their personal parenting fantasies.Just look at some of the arguments that Elizabeth Spiers, who was adopted as an infant, advanced in a 2021 New York Times essay about “the trauma [adoption] can inflict”...
  • Atlanta cops REOPEN investigation into adoptive gay father accused of raping 14-year-old boy in 2011 - as he and his partner are jailed for sodomizing and pimping out their two young sons

    One of the two Atlanta fathers in jail for raping his adoptive sons was accused of luring a different fourteen-year-old boy for sex, seven years before a Christian special needs adoption agency handed over two vulnerable young children to him and his husband. Zachary Zulock was reported to police in 2011 for allegedly luring a 14-year-old boy to his home and raping him. For some unknown reason, the case was not investigated properly by the detectives involved, all of whom have now retired, and charges were never brought. Detectives now working for the department admit their predecessors' investigative efforts fell...
  • Townhall's Mia Cathell investigated an LGBTQ pedophile ring and here's what she found

    We’ve not seen anything about this story outside of Twitchy parent-site Townhall, but if we did, we can only imagine the reaction. The outrage would be directed at reporter Mia Cathell for deliberately choosing to shine the light on an LGBTQ pedophile ring. It’s similar to when those opposing the Parental Rights in Education Act were being called groomers; the reaction was to point out that most child sexual abuse takes place either within the home or at church. This story — and it’s disturbing — takes place in the home between two fathers and their adopted sons. 🕵️‍♂️ I...

    This is Part 1 of a four-part investigative series. Content Warning: This article contains graphic descriptions of child sexual abuse. Reader discretion is advised. A months-long Townhall investigation reveals disturbing new details about the affluent LGBTQ-activist couple accused of sodomizing their young adopted sons—now ages 9 and 11—and distributing "homemade" child pornography of the sexual abuse. Half a year after the shocking story made national news, Townhall is the only outlet following up on the criminal case in Georgia that has since seen zero headlines written about it. We've found that it's far, far worse than what was first reported....

    Nearly 400 South Koreans adopted as children by families in the West have requested South Korea’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission investigate their adoptions through Friday’s application deadline, as Seoul faces growing pressure to reckon with a child export frenzy driven by dictatorships that ruled the country until the 1980s. The commission on Thursday said it decided to investigate 34 cases among the 51 adoptees who first submitted their applications in August, which could possibly develop into the country’s most far-reaching inquiry into foreign adoptions yet. A total of 63 adoptees from the United States, Europe and Australia submitted applications to...

    (WHNT) — Expecting mothers seeking abortion might be forced to pursue other options after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark cases legalizing abortion nationwide. Adoption has always been an option, but with the possibility of too many children and not enough homes to care for them, how will adoption agencies adapt to this shift in society? News 19 spoke with local family service and adoption providers to learn how they plan to continue helping future mothers who might not be in a stable situation to care for a baby. Herbie Newell, the president and...

    Everything always gets messy once kids get involved — especially when it comes to relationships and marriages. This story is no different — a 27-year-old man and his 26-year-old wife used to have a great relationship until one night, the wife “got drunk, had a one night stand, and got pregnant from it.” Now, he doesn’t know if he’s in the wrong for refusing to adopt a child that isn’t his. The affair occurred five years ago, and although they almost went through a divorce, couples therapy convinced them to stay together and try again — with some arrangements to...

    A Jewish couple from Tennessee has filed a lawsuit against the state’s Department of Children’s Services after a state-funded Christian program denied them foster care services for religious reasons. According to the lawsuit filed on Wednesday, Elizabeth and Gabriel Rutan-Ram signed up for the foster-parent training class and home-study certification process last January at the Holston United Methodist Home for Children. On 21 January 2021, the same day the Rutan-Rams were scheduled to begin the foster-parent-training class at Holston, an employee “emailed Ms Rutan-Ram to inform her that Holston would not serve the Rutan-Rams because of the couple’s Jewish faith”....

    "Be my Mommy!" the banner in the CVS window read, part of a display of surplus Baby Emma dolls. It was the fifth day of Christmas, and I noticed during Mass -- shortly before I went to the drugstore to pick up prescriptions -- that one of the petitions during the service was for those struggling to have a happy, peaceful Christmas. We prayed for the sick, the grieving, the lonely. We didn't pray for the orphans, though, I thought during Mass. I did, in my heart, but seeing the Baby Emma display reminded me to do so again. Over...

    Over and over during the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on Wednesday about Mississippi’s new abortion law, Dobbs v. Jackson, those defending abortion argued how any restrictions would endanger women’s health and well-being. The law prohibits abortions after 15 weeks, though it includes exceptions for a woman’s life and health.For abortion rights advocates the cases was the end of the world. “Nearly half of the states already have or are expected to enact bans on abortion at all stages of pregnancy, many without exceptions for rape or incest,” predicted Biden’s Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar during oral arguments. But even Chief Justice...

    Dear Birthmom, You don’t know me, but you saved me. As I’m writing this, I’m trying, as I have so many times, to picture your face. Nothing comes to mind. It’s a void that’s been there all of my life. Your eyes, your nose, your hair, your skin. I have no idea what you look like. When I see my reflection, I know you’re in the face that is looking back at me. I searched for you years ago after I graduated with my Master’s Degree. My heart longed to simply tell you how grateful I am. I wanted to...

    A headline on Newsweek’s web site grabbed my attention in early May: “Wokeness Has Come for Adoption. It’s the Children Who Will Suffer.” This is a subject I know well: My wife and I have fostered three child refugees—from Zimbabwe, Guatemala, and Honduras respectively. These foster children are functionally adopted, and have become full-fledged members of our family. The article noted that a vice-president at Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption agency in the country, had told a reporter that allowing white families to adopt black children from the foster care system “can cause a lot of harm to...

    A 19-year-old cat named Gus was brought into a North Carolina shelter recently, and the Humane Society of Catawba County’s executive director, Jane Bowers, said his owner was “heartbroken.” Bowers told Daily Paws they were forced to surrender him because of unforeseen circumstances, the website reported Thursday. At the shelter, Gus received a screening that showed he was enjoying good health. However, even with the organization’s funds for extra health care and help from another location, Bowers said there was still concern about him having to spend the rest of his life in a shelter. But it was not long...

    WADSWORTH, Ohio — For years, an Ohio woman has wondered about the son she gave up for adoption more than three decades ago. What does he look like? What does he do for a living? Was he happy? Well, thanks to the popular DNA genetic testing service 23andMe, she now has those answers and more. Melanie Pressley was just 18 when she got pregnant with her first child — a boy. Her boyfriend at the time wasn’t supportive and wanted her to get an abortion. Pressley refused and continued on with the pregnancy. But eventually, she knew she couldn’t keep...

    Biles parroted the slogan 'your body, your choice,' with a series of eye-roll emojis responding to those who 'gonna say ‘just put it up for adoption’.'The Simone Biles news cycle seems to have come to a disappointing end. In the beginning, she entered the Olympics as America’s gymnast champion. Then, out of the blue, she removed herself from the team competition as well as the all-around individual competition.This sparked controversy over whether she was a hero modeling good mental health or a selfish quitter. For all that, she did eventually compete once more on the balance beam to win bronze...

    Lorraine Sue Garza, 45, was charged on June 18 with two counts of abandoning or endangering a child. According to the arrest report, a woman called police because she was giving three children, ages 11, 13, and 15, food and letting them shower at her home. The children told her that their mother left the house on June 3 and hasn't been back since. San Antonio police spoke with the 15-year-old girl, who told them that their mother just left and took the family's only cell phone with her, so there was no way they could contact her. The water...

    Catholic League President Bill Donohue praised Thursday’s Supreme Court’s ruling in Fulton v. Philadelphia, calling it a “huge victory for religious liberty.” In its decision, the U.S. Supreme Court said that Catholic foster care agencies can reject gay couples when placing children for adoption. “This is a huge victory for religious liberty and a resounding defeat for LGBTQ activists,” Donohue said in his essay. The original case against Catholic foster care, in fact, did not stem from any complaints of discrimination but was the result of gay activists who “launched a contrived assault on the rights of Catholic social service...

    A Chinese woman gained more than a daughter-in-law at her son’s wedding last month — when she discovered the bride was actually her biological child. The woman noticed for the first time at the March 31 wedding that her son’s bride had a distinctive birthmark on one of her hands — just like the child she gave up for adoption years ago, the Oriental Daily reported. The stunned woman turned to the bride’s parents and asked, “Did you by any chance adopt your daughter?’’ the outlet said. The bride’s parents responded yes — revealing a secret they had kept from...

    By defining parenthood by intention instead of biology, legalized surrogacy becomes a vicious process that is destructive of human life.One of the last states to do so, New York recently legalized commercial surrogacy. This means New Yorkers can now pay women to carry a baby to term. Under New York’s law, which state Sen. Brad Hoylman touts as “a model for other states,” surrogate mothers are also guaranteed legal representation and an abortion if they so choose.Naturally, Gov. Andrew Cuomo touts this as a triumph of “love over fear” and a much-needed update to the law. In contrast to the...
