Breast Cancer Soars, Obvious Abortion Cause Hushed

The mainstream media is reporting new findings published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showing a significant increase of breast cancer among women aged 25 to 39 -- incidents of metastatic breast cancer more than tripling since the 1970s.  What has changed in the past 40 years in women's "health?"  Abortion!
"The increase [of metastatic breast cancer] translates to about 250 cases per year in 1976, and 850 in 2009."

-- From "Breast cancer among young women increasing" by Monte Morin, Los Angeles Times 2/26/13

In 1976, 1.53 out of every 100,000 American women 25 to 39 years old was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the study found. By 2009, the rate had almost doubled to 2.9 per 100,000 women in that age group — a difference too large to be a chance result.

The trend, which has yet to be explained, has raised real concerns about future efforts to treat the disease. Survival rates for young women with metastatic breast cancer are much lower than they are for older women, because the cancer tends to behave more aggressively in the young.

They hypothesized that the trend was due to a variety of lifestyle changes that have occurred during the study period. Diet, exercise, obesity, earlier onset of menstruation, use of birth control, delayed pregnancy and other factors all might play a role.

From "Advanced breast cancer rising among women under 40, study finds" by Nicole Ostrow, Bloomberg 2/27/13

Cases of advanced breast cancer among women younger than 40 have tripled in the U.S. over the last three decades, a trend that researchers said has “been increasing at a steady or even accelerating rate.”

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in 15- to 39-year- old females in the U.S. and accounts for 14 percent of all cancer in women and men in this age group, the authors wrote. Those diagnosed with the disease at a younger age have a higher risk of dying than those who are older. The national five-year survival rate for 20- to 34-year-olds diagnosed with advanced breast cancer is 31 percent, compared with 87 percent for women with less aggressive forms of the disease, researchers said.

“It’s a real phenomenon and an important one,” said Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer for the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society. “Why it’s happening, we don’t know. We have identified that this is happening and it’s consistent over time and it’s a source of concern that we have to keep evaluating.”

From "Advanced Breast Cancer Rising in Young Women?" by Kathleen Doheny, HealthDay Reporter 2/26/13

Younger women often believe breast cancer can't happen to them, said Johnson, who had breast cancer in her 20s. When a younger woman does seek medical help for worrisome breast symptoms, she should expect the doctor to take the symptoms seriously and not suggest a prolonged period of watching and waiting. Typically, a doctor should schedule an ultrasound or mammogram screening, Johnson said.

The findings are not a reason to change current mammography screening guidelines, Johnson added. Many organizations recommend routine screenings beginning at age 40, although the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends routine mammogram screenings need not begin until age 50.

The finding does stress the importance of younger women being aware of breast changes and the importance of seeking medical attention when they find such changes, she said.

From "Do Abortions Cause Breast Cancer?" by Elaine Schattner, Slate 5/23/12

In Kansas, legislators recently passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. If enacted into law, the bill would require doctors to tell pregnant women of a relationship between abortion and breast cancer. This news follows passage by the New Hampshire State House of the Women’s Right To Know Act Regarding Abortion Information. These related laws are unlikely to gain approval by the state senates. But there’s a trend: A similar measure took effect in Texas in February. Now, providers there must inform pregnant women about “the possibility of increased risk of breast cancer following an induced abortion,” the so-called ABC link.

In the decade following Roe v. Wade, the occurrence of breast tumors in the United States soared. The coincidental rise in case numbers with legalized abortions led some to speculate that terminating a pregnancy might boost a woman’s odds. The link is plausible because female hormones and fertility influence mammary growth and tumors.  . . .

Few doubt that a woman’s reproductive history influences her chances of getting breast cancer. As early as 1703, Italian physician Bernardino Ramazzini reported that nuns suffered breast tumors with relative frequency. A century ago, the British Ministry of Health commissioned Dr. Janet Clay-Laypon to examine possible roots of the malignancy. In then-innovative case-control studies, Clay-Laypon surveyed 508 breast cancer patients at English and Scottish hospitals. For controls, she questioned women with other medical conditions. Her 1926 monograph, A Further Report on Cancer of the Breast, confirmed what doctors had long suspected: Women who deliver few children and marry late are more likely to develop the disease.

From "Planned Parenthood Ignores 71 Studies Linking Abortion, Breast Cancer" by Karen Malec, President, Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer 1/22/13

Increased childbearing, starting before age 25, has long been known to provide significant protection against breast cancer. But, Planned Parenthood is waging a cancer war on women through its sales of induced abortions, contraceptives, abortifacients, injections, vaginal rings, skin patches, implants, IUDs and sterilizations.

Although the abortion chain acknowledges the risk reducing effects associated with having an early first full term pregnancy and breastfeeding, it contradicts itself by denying that abortion puts women at an increased risk for the disease. Planned Parenthood omits from its “fact sheet” most of the 71 epidemiologic studies reporting an independent link, meaning that abortion also raises breast cancer risk by leaving the breasts with more places for cancers to start.

Like Big Tobacco, the abortion industry will not inform women that induced abortion raises breast cancer risk. That’s why we applaud legislators in seven states that have passed informed consent legislation requiring abortionists to either provide pregnant women this information before an abortion themselves or in state health department literature.

Parents Demand School Allow Son in Girls Restroom

Parents of 6-year-old Coy Mathis of Fountain, Colorado have pulled their sexually confused son, whom the parents say is a transgendered girl, from the local public school until the school agrees to celebrate the child's mental illness (exacerbated by the parents' behavior) and treat him as a girl in every way.

-- From "Coy Mathis, Eagleside Elementary school: Transgender student barred from using girls' restroom" by Ed Payne, CNN 2/27/13

In December, the Fountain-Fort Carson School District informed Coy's parents that Coy would be barred from using the girls' restrooms at Eagleside Elementary in Fountain after winter break.

She could instead use the boys' bathroom, gender-neutral faculty bathrooms or the nurse's bathroom, the district said.

In making the decision, the district "took into account not only Coy but other students in the building, their parents, and the future impact a boy with male genitals using a girls' bathroom would have as Coy grew older," attorney W. Kelly Dude said.

"However, I'm certain you can appreciate that as Coy grows older and his male genitals develop along with the rest of his body, at least some parents and students are likely to become uncomfortable with his continued use of the girls' restroom."

The parents of a transgender 6-year-old have filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division . . .

Wm. Kelly Dude, the lawyer for Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8, said there are no Colorado cases requiring public schools to permit transgender students to use restrooms of the gender with which they identify.

Dude argued that the district is in compliance with the state Anti-Discrimination Act because "Coy attends class as all other students, is permitted to wear girls' clothes and is referred to as the parents have requested," and was allowed access to single-user restrooms used by employees or gender-neutral restrooms in the school's health room.

Coy's parents, Kathryn and Jeremy, are home-schooling her until the issue is resolved.

UPDATE 6/24/13: From "Transgender first-grader wins the right to use girls' restroom" by Ed Payne, CNN

This is the first of it's kind ruling in the country regarding the rights of transgender students. No court, no tribunal has ever said what the Colorado Division of Civil Rights has said today which is that trangendered students must be treated equally. They specifically referenced the outmoded concept of separate but equal and told us that separate but equal is very rarely equal and it is certainly not equal in Coy's case.

School policies toward transgender students vary across the United States.

In New York, for example, the law says students can't be discriminated against on the basis of their gender identity.

But in Maine, a court ruled in November that a school district did not violate a transgender student's rights when she was told she couldn't use the girls' bathroom.

Christian Prayer Brings Penalty for Teen Wrestler

As Nicholas Fant, a junior from Wake Forest-Rolesville High School, dropped to one knee for a two-second prayer before engaging the wrestling match, the referee penalized him.  After a North Carolina athletics official agreed with the penalty, Christian-rights attorneys contacted the state officials requesting future assurance of religious liberty for student athletes.

Nicholas Fant, a junior wrestling in the 220-pound class during Tuesday’s first-round playoff loss to Cary, jogged to the center of the mat and dropped to one knee for a two-second prayer, which [coach] Hershey said Fant has done before all of his matches this season.

Cary’s Corey Daniels also was on the mat, but the wrestlers hadn’t been brought into the center circle yet.

The ref called to the scoring table that Fant would be given a stalling warning for delaying the match.

Fant had risen to his feet before the official finished relaying his call.

NCHSAA Commissioner David Whitfield told Fox News the referee made the right call.

“When the referee called them to the center of the mat – at that point it’s time to wrestle,” he said. “By rule, the official was well within his rights to issue a stall warning.”

Whitfield conceded that referees do have some leeway.

But not all wrestling officials agreed with the call – including David Culbreth of the Southeastern Wrestling Officials Association.

“David Culbreth believes in God and on my mat – God gets two seconds,” he told Fox News, apologizing for speaking in third-person.

“We do not believe that the NCHSAA fulfilled that duty in this case and we find the comments made by Mr. Whitfield in support of the NCHSAA referee’s actions deeply troubling,” said the ADF letter.

“Penalizing two seconds of prayer while allowing two seconds of waving at mom or shaking hands can only mean one thing: religious expression has been penalized, and that’s not constitutional,” Cortman said. “All sorts of activity are routinely allowed at athletic events, but when something is religious, suddenly it’s a problem for the NCHSAA.”

ADF has given the North Carolina group until March 6 to answer whether it will take steps “to ensure that students’ right to express their faith at school athletic events is respected in the future.”

Vatican 'Gay Mafia' Reports; Cardinal Resigns

The resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien, Archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh, and Britain's top Catholic, over his homosexual behavior with four priests years ago, comes as a confidential Vatican investigation is reported to have documented the existence of a decades-old network of priests aimed at normalizing homosexual behavior among Roman Catholic clergy.

-- From "Britain’s Most Senior Roman Catholic Cleric Resigns" by Reuters, posted at New York Times 2/25/13

Cardinal Keith O'Brien said he had tendered his resignation some months ago, ahead of his 75th birthday in March and because he was suffering from "indifferent health".

The Observer, which gave little detail on the claims, said three priests and a former priest, from a Scottish diocese, had complained over incidents dating back to 1980.

The cardinal, who last week advocated allowing Catholic priests to marry as many found it difficult to cope with celibacy, rejected the allegations and was seeking legal advice, his spokesman said.

. . . O'Brien denies the [homosexual abuse] charges, but his resignation comes as Benedict is already mired in another controversy. Benedict received a voluminous confidential report Monday complied by three cardinals who investigated the so-called "Vatileaks" scandal.

There has been widespread speculation by Italy's media that the internal investigation revealed everything from bitter political infighting at the highest levels of the Vatican, to sexual blackmail and a purported "gay lobby" of homosexual prelates within the Church.

Church officials have dismissed the reports as "unsourced and unverifiable," insisting they have no basis in truth.

From "Italian paper says cardinals discovered homosexual network within Vatican" by Catholic World News 2/21/13

The daily La Repubblica reported that in their report to the Pope, a commission of 3 cardinals investigating the leaked papal documents had found evidence of a homosexual network within the Vatican, and hinted at the possibility that some Vatican officials were subject to blackmail.

La Repubblica claimed that in a lengthy report on the leaks, the cardinals had alerted the Pontiff to the existence of factions within the Roman Curia, including a powerful faction “united by sexual orientation.” Some members of that bloc, the cardinals reportedly said, may be vulnerable to “external influence” because of their activities. The Italian newspaper said that the report shocked Pope Benedict and contributed to his decision to resign.

Ignazio Ingrao, who covers the Vatican for Panorama magazine, backed the report by La Repubblica. He said that the cardinals’ commission disclosed “a network of alliances and acts of blackmail of homosexual nature in several areas of the Curia.”

From "'Gay mafia' blamed for Papal resignation in Cardinals’ report" by Hilary White, Rome Correspondent, 2/22/13

[La Repubblica], that has not named its sources, says the report cites not only an active homosexual subculture in the Vatican, but factional “struggles for power and money”. The paper quotes “a man very close” to the document’s authors, who described its contents, saying, “Everything revolves around the non-observance of the sixth and seventh commandment,” the Biblical prohibitions against sexual impurity and theft.

The three cardinals – the paper names Spanish cardinal Julian Herranz, Italian cardinal Salvatore De Giorgi and Slovak cardinal Josef Tomko – revealed “a lobby network” identified with the various religious congregations - including the Salesians of Don Bosco and Jesuits – and “geographical origin,” described as “a network united according to sexual orientation.”

The document, the paper said, included “dozens and dozens of interviews with bishops, cardinals and lay people. In Italy and abroad. Dozens and dozens of reports, reread and signed by the interviewees.” These interviews started with standard quesionnaires and were followed by personal interviews, the findings of which were “checked and cross-checked”.

Certainly faithful Catholics fighting the homosexualist movement both within and without the Church have known for decades that a powerful homosexual subculture among some clergy and bishops took hold of the temporal affairs of the Church in the 1960s and after.

Prison Witches in Calif. OK'd to Sue for Chaplain

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has ruled that female prisoners who practice Wicca (goddess-worshiping witchcraft) can sue the state to demand full-time witch "chaplains." Obviously, more spending for pagans would impact the funding available for Christian chaplains.

-- From "Wiccan inmates can sue to gain chaplain" by Bob Egelko, San Francisco Chronicle 2/19/13

The appeals court told [U.S. District Judge Lawrence O'Neill] in Fresno to determine whether the state prisons are unconstitutionally preferring majority religions over Wicca and other minority faiths without paid chaplains, such as Buddhism and Hinduism. [O'Neill] had dismissed the Chowchilla inmates' lawsuit, a ruling the appeals court overturned Tuesday.

Although the state is not required to "provide inmates with the chaplain of their choice," it must use neutral standards when deciding how to spend money on prisoners' religious needs, said the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

California prisons have long employed chaplains for Catholics, Protestants, Muslims and Jews. After American Indian inmates sued the state in 1985, the prison system began providing spiritual advisers for them.

From "Court Gives Wiccans a Chance at Getting Chaplains in Prison" posted at 2/24/13

The appeals court was clear not to make a ruling about the point of law, but wanted the U.S. District Court to give the question a fair hearing by reconsidering a lawsuit brought by two inmates, Shawna Hartmann (who has since been released) and Caren Hill. A big part of that hearing, the court said, should be a proper survey of how many Wiccans there actually are in the penal system.

Wiccan minister Patrick McCollum puts the number at 2,000. Hartmann claimed there are at least as many inmates practicing the Wiccan religion in the Central California Women's Facility (CCWF) in Chowchilla as there are practicing Jewish, Muslim and Catholic inmates.

A 2002 survey found 598 professed Wiccans in the state correctional system and a 2007 survey turned up only 183. That same 2007 survey indicated the following inmate religious identification: 42,666 Protestant, 28,884 Muslim, 23,160 Catholic, 8,296 Native American, 3,296 Jewish and 2,678 “other.”

1 Mom, 2 Dads & Baby: ABC News Promotes Polyamory

Now that the media and political correctness police have declared victory for the Gay Agenda (much thanks to President Obama and, of course, Hollywood/TV), they're now moving on to polyamory, polygamy, and more.  It's amazing how rapidly the sexual revolutionaries believe the desensitized, gullible public is ready for the next phase of indoctrination.
If two men or two women should be allowed to get married simply because they “love” one another, then why limit marriage to just two people? Why not three people? Why not 10 people? Why not [allow] nieces and aunts to marry?

The first International Academic Polyamory Conference was held in Berkeley CA February 15-17, 2013 with approximately 100 attendees. Polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It is not new or revolutionary that individuals may be involved with more than one other party; what is new is the openness, acknowledgement, and support and encouragement of the situation.

A number of academic studies were presented by researchers from around the world regarding the practice of polyamory. Polyamory is a niche, but increasingly becoming a defined field of sociology research. Theory papers and discussion drew on social movement theory, queer theory, intimacy theory, performance theory, and other aspects of philosophy and sociology. Other conference tracks discussed public education, experiential aspects, and legal and political issues. Some common themes were the notion of plurality and choice in relationship models and a superior level of communications mastery and emotional intelligence.

From "New Sexual Revolution: Polyamory May Be Good for You" by Stephanie Pappas and LiveScience 2/14/13

. . . an estimated 4 to 5 percent of Americans are looking outside their relationship for love and sex — with their partner's full permission.

These consensually nonmonogamous relationships, as they're called, don't conform to the cultural norm of a handholding couple in love for life. They come in a dizzying array of forms, from occasional "swinging" and open relationships to long-term commitments among multiple people. Now, social scientists embarking on brand-new research into these types of relationships are finding that they may challenge the ways we think of jealousy, commitment and love. They may even change monogamy for the better.

The study of consensual nonmonogamy is a relatively new field. In the 1970s, partner-swapping and swinging (recreational sex outside of a relationship) came into the public eye, and psychologists conducted a few studies. But that research was limited to mostly white, heterosexual couples who engaged in swinging for fun, according to Elisabeth Sheff, a legal consultant and former Georgia State University professor, writing in 2011 in the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography.

While there are no national statistics on consensual nonmonogamy, University of Michigan psychologist Terri Conley has estimated that about 5 percent of Americans are in one of these types of relationships at any given time. From the little data collected, scientists know lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals are slightly more likely than heterosexuals to enter nonmonogamous relationships, said Amy Moors, a graduate student in Conley's lab. So, it seems, are people high in the personality trait of openness, which indicates high interest in new experiences.

From "5 Myths About Polyamory" by Stephanie Pappas, LiveScience Senior Writer 2/14/13

Myth #1: Poly people are unsatisfied

When someone goes outside a relationship looking for companionship or sex, it's natural to assume there's something missing from their romance. But that doesn't appear to be the case for polyamorous individuals. . . .

Myth #2: Polyamorous people are still paired up

Many polyamorous people do form relationships that orbit around a committed couple, with each person having relationships on the side. But the primary partner/secondary partner model is an oversimplification for many poly relationships, said Bjarne Holmes, a psychologist at Champlain College in Vermont. . . .

Myth #3: Polyamory is a way to avoid commitment

. . . Joining a polyamorous relationship and thinking it's going to be a commitment-free breeze would likely be a huge mistake. . . .

Myth #4: Polyamory is exhausting

. . . Polyamorous people report feeling energized by their multiple relationships and say that good feelings in one translate to good feelings in others. . . .

Myth #5: Polyamory is bad for the kids

One big question about polyamory is how it affects families with children. The answer to that is not entirely clear — there have been no large-scale, long-term studies on the outcomes of kids growing up with polyamorous parents. . . .

Some teens indicated that they'd consider polyamory for themselves; others weren't interested at all.

War Against Menstruation Won by Women in Combat

Even as Pentagon funding is being cut, there's no shortage of money to research how military women can win the battle of their period.  Both medical and military experts have concluded that victory is achieved by using medications to regulate or even eliminate menstruation.
“People say this in this hushed tone as if the vagina is a secret. If women died without access to indoor plumbing, the human species would not have survived long enough to develop showers.”

“Women can use hormonal birth control to regulate or eliminate their periods during deployment,” Kayla Williams said in remarks on Thursday at the Center for National Policy in Washington, D.C. “It’s just not that hard.”

Williams said the military already has equipment designed to make hygiene easier for women in the field, including the female urinary device, or FUD, that allows women to urinate while standing or void into a bottle.

Privacy was a concern, however, when the Defense Department issued a memorandum on Jan. 13, 1994, which ruled that “women shall be excluded from units below the brigade level whose primary mission is to engage in direct combat on the ground.”

From "Menstrual Suppression Could Help Deployed Women Avoid Discomfort, Inconvenience" posted at U.S. Medicine (The Voice of Federal Medicine) 10/22/12

Although there are indications that menstruation is problematic for military women who have been deployed, until recently, there has been relatively little research on menstruation in this environment or use of continuous contraception to manage it.

A study published earlier this year indicated that, even when military women have a strong desire for menstrual suppression (66 percent of 500 respondents to a survey), only 21 percent reported using continuous combination oral contraceptives (COCs) to achieve it. The difficulty of compliance with the daily pill regimen was one reason for the lack of use of COCs, according to the authors, who recommended more education on the topic.

An earlier study to document menstrual experiences and awareness of menstrual suppression during deployment was done in 2007 by Lt. Col. Lori L. Trego, PhD, CNM, Chief of PRMC Nursing Research Service in Honolulu.
• Menses are intensified during deployment.

• It is hard to take care of yourself during your period.

• Menstrual challenges include heat, dirt, and portable toilets.

• Menstruation is an inconvenience when you are deployed.
. . . military women surveyed were aware that hormonal contraceptives could be used to suppress menstruation. The concerns they voiced about both injectable contraception and continuous-use COCs included side effects, especially during deployment, the safety of continuous-use COCs and problems associated with missing pills. They were especially worried about possible emotional changes and weight gain associated with using hormonal contraceptives. Their level of interest in trying menstrual suppression ranged from none to a willingness to try it for one year.

Forced Abortion on Pregnant Girl by Parents Nixed

When the parents of a 16-year-old girl of Hockley, Texas found out their daughter was pregnant, they demanded she have an abortion and then punished her when she refused.  After the girl sought legal help, and with the support of her soon-to-be husband, 16-year-old Evan Madison, along with his family, attorneys were able to reach an amicable settlement with the girl's parents.  The baby will live!

The teen said her mother and father threatened her and were trying to coerce her into having an abortion, according to court records.

After weeks of tearful fighting, the girl took a dramatic step: She sued her parents.

The recently filed lawsuit ended Monday with an agreement that the teen's parents would not use physical force or psychological coercion. They also agreed to pay half of the hospital bill if the girl has not married when the baby is delivered and let her use her car to go to school and work.

The parents have denied all allegations and called the case baseless. Their attorney did not respond to requests from CNN for comment.

The restraining order alleges that the teen’s mother threatened to “slip (the teen) an abortion pill,” took her daughter’s phone and car, and kept her home from school to punish her for choosing not to abort her baby. The mother told the teen that she was “making the biggest mistake of her life” by choosing to have the child and that the mother had had numerous abortions, so her daughter should, too, the restraining order says.

The parents told their daughter she could either “continue to live in misery” in their home or she could “have the abortion and tell everyone it was a miscarriage,” according to the restraining order.

Next Pope? On Abortion: Like Murdering Congressmen

Speculation that the next pope may be an African, possibly Nigeria's Cardinal Francis Arinze, has resurfaced his public remarks of 2007 comparing an oft-cited American liberal Catholic politician's "personal position" of opposing abortion while saying it's OK for others to choose to murder the unborn, to the position of saying it's OK for others "to shoot all of you in the Senate" while you personally oppose the mass murder.

-- From "Two African Cardinals in the Running to Be Pope" by Bazi Kanani, ABC News 2/12/13

Two African cardinals are rumored to be among the top candidates to succeed Pope Benedict, and many Vatican watchers believe the election of a non-European pope is a very real possibility at a time when the majority of the church’s growth is in the developing world.

Cardinal Francis Arinze, 80, of Nigeria is again being mentioned as a possible pope, as he was in 2005 when Pope Benedict was elected.  Arinze served as a priest for 27 years and became one of the world’s youngest bishops before Pope John Paul II elevated him to cardinal in 1985.

He was appointed to lead the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and colleagues compliment his ability to cooperate with people of other faiths.  Arinze is also considered a conservative.

From "Cardinal Arinze: ‘Personally’ Against Abortion Is Like Saying ‘Personally’ Against Shooting Members of Congress" by Michael W. Chapman, 2/18/13

During a question-and-answer session at a conference held at Familyland USA in Bloomington, Ohio in 2007, Cardinal Arinze was asked about Catholic U.S. politicians who vote for abortion and then present themselves for Holy Communion and what could the Church do about the issue.

Arinze said,  “The question of voting [for] abortion is not Catholic law, but Divine law. So, those who kill unborn babies are breaking not the law of the Church but the law of God. … They have gone against Divine law: Thou shall not kill.”

As for those pro-abortion Catholic politicians who present themselves for Holy Communion at Mass, Cardinal Arinze said, “Do you really need a cardinal from the Vatican to answer that?”

“The children for First Communion will answer that at the drop of a hat.  You don’t need a cardinal to answer that,” he said.

From "Vatican cardinal weighs in on pro-abortion politicians and Communion" by Catholic News Agency 4/12/08

In a satirical manner, Cardinal Arinze criticized a standard pro-abortion political argument.

“To the person who says, ‘Personally, I am against abortion, but then if people really want to do it I leave them free’ you can say ‘You are a member of the senate or the congress.

“‘Personally I am not in favor of shooting the whole lot of you, but if somebody else wants to shoot all of you in the senate or all of you in the congress, it’s just pro-choice for that.

“’But personally I’m not in favor.’

“That is what they are saying,” the cardinal argued.

“They are saying that personally, he is not in favor of killing these millions of children in the womb, but if others want to do it, he is pro-choice.”

Fired Woman Sues Christian School over Pregnancy

Celebrity feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, labeled a "media whore" by pundits, is representing Teri James against San Diego Christian College in a lawsuit admittedly aimed not at employment reinstatement, but at enriching both the attorney and her client.  Miss James was fired for violating the college's code of conduct -- a provision of the employment contract -- due to her becoming pregnant while unmarried.

Teri James is claiming wrongful termination in her lawsuit against San Diego Christian College in El Cajon, where she worked as a financial aid specialist.

The 29-year-old received a termination notice stating she “engaged in activity outside the scope of the handbook and community covenant.”

The college contends that employees and some students have to sign a clause stating they won’t have pre-marital sex and will abstain from behavior inconsistent with Christian values.

Allred says the college will argue that, since it’s a religious entity, it can legally fire James. But she maintains that it’s a business entity, and the termination is illegal.

From "Ex-Employee Sues Christian College for Firing Over Pre-Marital Sex" by Diana Bridgett, Christian Post Contributor 2/15/13

James, who is currently six months pregnant, announced her lawsuit during a press conference in California on Thursday stating that she is suing the university due to discrimination on the account of gender, pregnancy, and marital status.

The 29-year-old has enlisted Gloria Allred as her attorney. Allred is known for taking high profile controversial cases involving women's rights. In November 2012, she became the attorney for Natalie Khawan, twin sister to Jill Kelley in the General David Petraeus scandal, during her custody dispute for her son.

This is not the first Christian institution to enforce biblical ethics on employees. In 2008 Shorter University enforced a new policy called the Personal Lifestyle Statement. This new policy forbids pre-marital sex, adultery, and homosexual sex. Although many employees became disgruntled about the new policy, it was found to be completely legal in the state of Georgia.

San Diego Christian Christian College requires that all of its employees sign a lifestyle statement committing to live in a manner that is consistent with Biblical values, which includes abstaining from fornication. James admits to signing the statement, but still believes that her termination was unlawful. She hired renowned feminist attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in the courts.

“Teri engaged in activity outside the scope of the handbook and community covenant that does not build up the college’s mission,” Allred acknowledged. “The HR director indicated that she was not being fired because she was pregnant. Instead, she was being terminated because she had premarital sex.”

Indiana School Prom Without Deviant Sex Criticized

In response to pressure to welcome "gay couples" at school, a group of students, parents and teachers met at a church in Sullivan, Indiana to plan an independent and unofficial prom that would not allow overt homosexual behavior, which caused the media and political correctness police to cry foul saying that citizens can't be allowed to have non-school events, open to the public, based on Christian values.
Dale Wise, the church's senior minister at Sullivan First Christian Church, said his church turned off its fax machine and took its website offline Tuesday because both were the target of hate mail and pornographic messages.

The group met on Sunday at the town’s First Christian Church to discuss the possibility of holding a separate, segregated dance after the principal of Sullivan High, David Springer, told a local NBC affiliate that “Anybody can go to the prom” when asked to clarify whether same-sex couples would be allowed to walk in the event’s grand march, set to be held April 27.

According to WTWO, one member of the group is a local special-education teacher, Diana Medley, who told the NBC affiliate, “I believe [homosexuality] is a choice. I don’t believe they were born that way. I think that life circumstances made them that way.” She says she works with students who come out to her and cares about them, even though she doesn’t “agree with them.”

The students and parents formed a Facebook page, called 2013 Sullivan Traditional Prom, to support their cause. . . . Some of the comments defended the group’s mission (“We would like to stress to everyone that this is not a hate group. We do not hate anyone, we are not judging anyone. We are choosing to stand on the word of God”), while others urged supporters to stand together (“With all the media and stuff going on now, let us keep in mind that we are to be loving to all and to be in prayer so satan doesn’t get in to divide”).

From "Plan for prom barring gays rocks small Indiana community" by Pamela Engel, Associated Press 2/15/13

[Comments in support of an independent prom by Diana] Medley, a special education teacher in a neighboring school district, have gone viral and sparked online campaigns to have her fired. A petition on calling for her dismissal had generated more than 17,500 signatures from as far away as the United Kingdom as of Thursday, and a Facebook page supporting a prom that includes all students had more than 27,000 likes.

"We are conservative around here. That's just the way of this town," said Nancy Woodard, 60, who owns the Hidden Treasure Exchange store. "In any town in this county, you'll find four or five churches no matter how small the town. ... The Bible is a big belief system here.

"Everybody has jumped on this little town. To me, there isn't any need for it," she said.

Sullivan High School Principal David Springer said talk of the "traditional" prom began in January, after a student began circulating a petition demanding that gays be allowed to participate in the grand march at Sullivan's April 27 prom. The "traditional" prom would not be sanctioned by the district and wouldn't be held at the school.

Mark Baker, superintendent in Northeast School Corp., where Medley is employed, did not respond to calls or emails.

The school corporation did, however, release a statement in response to the original story.

"I would like to clearly state the Northeast School Corporation has never denied any student the right to attend prom or any other Northeast School Corporation-sponsored event due to their race, gender or sexual orientation," the statement reads in part.

From "Missouri district to allow same-sex couples at prom" posted at Kansas City Star 2/15/13

A southern Missouri school district has rescinded a policy that prohibited same-sex couples from attending prom. It happened a day after a national anti-discrimination group threatened to sue.

Scott County Central School District superintendent Alvin McFerren said Friday that the school board agreed to revise a district handbook policy that had been interpreted to prohibit same-sex dates. McFerren said the policy was adopted 10 to 15 years ago for an innocent reason and was never meant to discriminate.

The Southern Poverty Law Center on Thursday threatened legal action on behalf of Stacy Dawson, a male student who wanted to attend prom with his boyfriend but was told he couldn’t. McFerren said Dawson can now attend with whomever he chooses.

Government Says Boys Free to Use Girls Locker Room

The Massachusetts Department of Education just issued directives that any boy who says that he thinks he's a girl may freely use the girls bathroom/locker room facilities in any school building.  The boy need not have any formal designation or even be wearing girl's clothing -- he just needs to say "I feel like a girl today."
“School personnel may be forbidden from informing the parents of their child’s gender decisions, and students can even decide to be one gender at home and another at school.”

. . . concerning the federal government: White House Honors Sexually Confused People Killed

-- From "Mass. Ed Dept issues rules on transgender pupils" by The Associated Press 2/15/13

The guidance was issued at the request of state board of education to help schools follow the state's 2011 anti-discrimination law protecting transgender people.

"These students, because of widespread misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about their lives, are at a higher risk for peer ostracism, victimization, and bullying," the document read.

The document said whether a student identifies as a boy or girl is up to the student or, in the case of younger students, the parents.

In all cases, "the student may access the restroom, locker room, and changing facility that corresponds to the student's gender identity," it said.

The guidance said some students may feel uncomfortable sharing those facilities with a transgender student but this "discomfort is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student."

From "State mandate: Allow boys in girls' locker rooms" by Drew Zahn, World Net Daily 2/15/13

Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, however, says there’s something far more significant than “discomfort” at stake.

“The School Commissioner’s first duty is to protect all students, from kindergarten to grade 12, not endanger them,” Mineau said in a statement. “The overriding issue with this new policy is that opening girls’ bathrooms to boys is an invasion of privacy and a threat to all students’ safety.”

Furthermore, the policy document explains, neither doctor’s note nor hormone therapy nor even parental permission is needed for a student to switch sex: If a boy says he’s a girl, as far as the schools should be concerned, he’s a girl.

“The responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the student,” the statement reads. “A school should accept a student’s assertion of his or her gender identity when there is … ‘evidence that the gender-related identity is sincerely held as part of a person’s core identity.’”

Morning-After Pill Becoming 'Contraceptive' Choice

Use of the so-called "emergency contraceptive" Plan B abortifacient has skyrocketed as more women use the pill after incidents of unforeseen, unexpected, surprise, or just routine sexual intercourse -- in fact, about six million women over a four-year period, many taking the pill multiple times, according to the federal CDC.

-- From "Morning-after pill use up" by The Associated Press 2/14/13

A government report says an increasing number of women are using the morning-after pill after sex. The study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the first by the government to focus on emergency contraception since the approval of the morning-after pill 15 years ago.

Eleven percent of females ages 15 to 44 who'd had sex say they've used the morning-after pill. That's up from 4 percent in 2002.

In the study, half the women who used the pills said they did it because they'd had unprotected sex. Others said the condom broke or they were worried that the birth control method they used had failed.

From "Use of Morning-After Pill Is Rising, Report Says" by Sabrina Tavernise, New York Times 2/14/13

The finding is likely to add to the public debate over rules issued by the Obama administration under the new health care law that require most employers to provide free coverage of birth control, including morning-after pills, to female employees. Some religious institutions and some employers have objected to the requirement and filed lawsuits to block its enforcement.

Morning-after pills are particularly controversial among some conservative groups who contend they can cause abortions by interfering with the implantation of a fertilized egg that the groups regard as a person.

Medical experts say that portrayal is inaccurate, and that studies provide strong evidence that the most commonly used pills do not hinder implantation, but work by delaying or preventing ovulation so that an egg is never fertilized in the first place, or thicken cervical mucus so sperm have trouble moving.

From "More Women Turn To Morning-After Pill" by Julie Rovner, National Public Radio WBUR (Boston) 2/14/13

Users of emergency contraception were most likely to be between age 20 and 24 (23 percent), never married (19 percent) and have at least some college education.

. . . only 6 percent of those with less than a high school education said they had used it.

And Catholic women reported using artificial birth control in smaller numbers than women of other religions, that use was still fairly widespread. According to the study, 89 percent of Catholic women reported having used a condom with a male partner, compared to 95-97 percent of Protestant women. Similarly, about 76 percent of Catholic women said they had used the birth control pill, compared to 86 percent of Protestant women.

From "Report: More U.S. women using 'morning-after' pill" by Catholic Online 2/14/13

Of those surveyed, 59 percent said they took it just once, while 24 percent said they used it twice. Seventeen percent said they used it three times or more.

As with other birth control, Plan B purports to stop pregnancy by blocking the release of a woman's egg. However, though it may prevent fertilization - it also can act to prevent implantation in the uterus of an already fertilized egg. It must be taken within days after intercourse to work.

In other words, this so called contraceptive has the potential to act as an abortion inducing drug if conception has already occurred. It ejects the embryonic person before implantation, causing an abortion.
