In more good news, Guatemala has joined the pro-life Geneva Declaration. From C-Fam:

“Every person has the right that their life be respected from the moment of conception until natural death,” said Guatemalan president Alejandro Giammattei.

Atwood, a hero to progressives, is now facing the same backlash that Rowling did. It is a bit amusing to watch feminists get attacked for being feminist. The Left is eating itself.

Here’s a story from the Post Millennial revealing how Canadian schools hide the new “transgender identities” of children from their parents. These so-called educators introduce these ideas, cultivate them, bring them to fruition—and cut the parents out. It is incredibly dangerous.
