Some good news regarding American public opinion on abortion. From Dr. Michael New over at Live Action News:

On Friday, the Associated Press released the results of a poll on abortion attitudes they conducted in mid-June with the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The survey results contain good news for pro-lifers, indicating that 65% of Americans think that second trimester abortions should be “illegal in all or most cases.” Similarly, the poll also found that 80% of Americans think that third trimester abortions should be illegal “in all or most cases.”

In the wake of devastating revelations about children buried in unmarked graves at Canada’s residential schools, Catholic Churches are being burned down—four so far. Ironically, many of these churches are being burned down on Indigenous land and are attended by Indigenous worshippers. Some people will use any injustice they can find to pursue their own agenda.

The queering of the American military is continuing apace. From the New York Post:

A Nevada Air Force base hosted the first “Drag-u-Nellis” drag show in its history this month, said to be “an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the history and significance of drag performance art within the LGBT+ community.” 

Nellis Air Force Base, located 14 miles northeast of Las Vegas, said in a statement that the event took place at one of its on-base dining and entertainment clubs last Thursday.

Hungary’s Minister of Justice Judit Varga wrote an op-ed defending the recent law banning LGBT propaganda to minors, which Politico EU refused to publish (so that the law could continue to be mischaracterized.) An excerpt:

This time it is declared that Hungary adopted a discriminatory, homophobic law. No one cares that the declaration signed by several member states contains false allegations and falsifies the merit of the Hungarian law by suppressing essential parts thereof. No one cares to notice that the focus of the law is the protection of children from any kind of sexuality – hence it cannot, by definition, be discriminatory. The signatory member states did not even bother to ask for an official explanation from the Hungarian government before issuing their joint letter. Criticisms instead have generated an artificial conflict between the rights of children and the rights of LGBT. Is this really the embodiment of the loyal cooperation enshrined in the Treaties?

The new law focuses on guaranteeing the rights of parents and protecting minors from accessing content that may contradict the educational principles their parents chose to teach them until they become adults themselves. Until that time, however, all other actors – be it the state or schools – shall respect the rights of parents to decide on the sexual education of their children. This is what Hungary’s new law is about.
