A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
Back in May, Communist China announced that it would be taking another step away from its notorious One Child Policy with a Three Child Policy designed to shore up the flagging birth rate. Now, the BBC reports that it has formally passed into law. A brutal era resulting in millions of dead babies killed by abortion and infanticide is over.
In his podcast The Briefing yesterday, Al Mohler notes the “Astounding moral shift evident as social media platform [Only Fans] known for its pornographic content changes its guidelines — not based on morality but pressure from ‘Payment Partners.’”
Hobby Lobby is in the judicial crosshairs of the LGBT movement again after declining to allow a biological male identifying as female use the bathroom in one of its stores. From NBC News:
On Friday, the Illinois 2nd District Appellate Court upheld a lower court decision that determined the crafts chain violated the Illinois Human Rights Act both as an employer and as a place of public accommodation.
“Sommerville is female, just like the women who are permitted to use the women’s bathroom,” the three-judge panel said in its decision. “The only reason that Sommerville is barred from using the women’s bathroom is that she is a transgender woman.”
Of course, the reason he was actually denied is that he is male—but now, as NBC observes, this case is likely headed all the way up to the Supreme Court. Considering the Court’s ruling in Bostock, we may see the highest court in the land affirm the transgender regime and force businesses to participate with these delusions. Female-only spaces may become a thing of the past.
A federal appeals court in New Orleans has upheld a Texas law banning a second-trimester abortion procedure.
Considering how much censorship pro-life groups face on the Internet, this, from Dr. Michael New at National Review, is good news:
Last week, McClatchy DC published an article about NARAL Pro-Choice America and its efforts to revamp its digital outreach. In the article, NARAL admits that the group has been losing the online messaging battle with pro-lifers.
In Arizona and Michigan, NARAL found that focus-group participants often used pro-life language when discussing New York’s 2019 Reproductive Health Act, which explicitly legalized abortion for all nine months of pregnancy — for any reason up to 24 weeks’ gestation and with broad exceptions after that point. The article also points out that NARAL’s own research has found that Internet users are likely to find pro-life content on Facebook and YouTube. This is another helpful sign that the pro-life movement is successfully using the Internet and social-media platforms to bypass the mainstream media, which tend to favor the abortion-rights argument.
