    Stories about parental regret might get clicks, but BuzzFeed acting as a PR machine against motherhood might also influence people’s decision to become a parent.As BuzzFeed contemplates its future, the website should reconsider its approach to motherhood. The media outlet is rethinking its news division because it loses money, offering voluntary buyouts. BuzzFeed would likely gain some mom consumers if it changed its tune on motherhood. In April, BuzzFeed ran an article headlined, “Mothers Are Revealing How They Realized They Regret Having Children And How They’re Coping Now, And They’re Such Nuanced And Valid Feelings.” The first mom the article...

    A couple in the north Indian state of Uttarakhand are suing their only son and his wife for not giving them a grandchild after six years of marriage.

The highly unusual lawsuit was filed on grounds of "mental harassment".

    "The suspect then intervened, deployed pepper spray and sprayed the victim, before fleeing the scene on foot," according to the police.Earlier this month, a woman in Arlington, Virginia, saw a man taking pictures of kids and suspected the worst: a creep on the prowl with his camera. Disgusting. She quickly alerted a security guard and, according to a subsequent police report, told him she believed the man was photographing children he didn't know, for presumably nefarious purposes. The security guard went to investigate and made contact with the man. As it turns out, the guy was taking pictures of his...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Pastors and congregations plan to show up at the state capitol by the hundreds Tuesday to persuade state legislators to vote “no” on a bill that decriminalizes infanticide. Not only will they visit the individual offices of their legislators, but they will also testify against AB 2223 during a hearing scheduled in the Assembly Health Committee at 4 p.m. on April 19th. The crowds are coming in response to the coordinated efforts of three organizations, Real Impact, Capitol Resource Institute, and the California Family Council, who invited pastors, congregants, and pro-life citizens from around California to attend...

    Controversial feminist author Jill Filipovic is preaching the “overwhelmingly negative consequences” of stay-at-home moms — and social media watchdogs are coming for her. Filipovic, 38, detailed her stance that these mothers create “worse, more sexist” men — and women who are “psychologically and emotionally worse off” — in a now-viral Twitter thread published on Tuesday. SNIP “The problem with paying people to stay home with kids, though, is that (1) we’re overwhelmingly not talking about ‘people,’ we’re talking about mothers; and (2) pushing women out of work comes with overwhelmingly negative consequences,” begins the thread by the outspoken author of...

    President Joe Biden has consistently struggled with anger outbursts when peppered with unwanted questions — especially questions about the Biden family corruption. All throughout the presidential campaign and into his presidency, Biden has consistently used anger in an attempt to dispel questions he does not want to answer. According the Republican National Committee’s research team on Monday, Biden has leveraged his defensive anger at least five times when questioned about his family’s business dealings.

    I was raised on Disney fare and I let my children (now grown) watch Disney material. In the years after WWII and before wokeism struck, Disney produced movies and TV shows that fit squarely within traditional, family-friendly values. The material may not have been elevating or deep, but it was fun without being offensive. That Disney is long gone. The latest sign of Disney’s surrender to the hard left occurred when Disney’s CEO, Bob Chapek, apologized to radicalized workers for not publicly opposing a Florida bill to ban teachers from Kindergarteners through third-graders about gender and sexual identity.From the Daily...

    Daughter taken from mom, who was banned from talking about GodBy Greg BurtAn immigrant mother living in Los Angeles has revealed publicly that her 16-year-old daughter killed herself after public school employees, doctors and the courts fed the troubled teen lies about her identity. This progressive ideology promoted by legislative leaders, that one’s gender is separate from biological sex, is driving some mentally struggling teens to despair and leading many others to destroy their reproductive systems with puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. California teachers, gender counselors and judges tell parents that affirming their child’s self-perception without question is the only...

    CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Thursday on “The Situation Room” that if former President Donald Trump and his children Ivanka and Don Jr. plead the Fifth when testifying in the civil suit by the state of New York, the jury could draw an “adverse inference.” Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “Former President Trump and his kids argued that sitting for a deposition would violate, they say, their constitutional rights; this judge certainly disagreed. What do you make of this ruling?”

    Judge rules danger to immunocompromised child’s health requires virtual visits onlyNew Brunswick father who is refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has lost his right to see his immunocompromised child and his two other children in person. Justice Nathalie Godbout of the Court of Queen's Bench writes in her decision that she was ruling "with a heavy heart" but that the health risk to the 10-year-old child made the decision necessary. And she debunks the "research" the father did himself that he says led him to question the safety and efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. "His own anecdotal research on...

    The Pew Research Center survey found that only 34 percent of U.S. adults believe society is better off if "people make marriage and having children a priority," while 64 percent believe society is "just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children."

White evangelicals are the only religious subgroup with majority support for the marriage and procreation segment of the poll. Catholics (35 percent), black Protestants (36 percent) and white non-evangelical...
