The EU condemns the overturn of Roe v. Wade, a victory in the trans wars (and other stories)

A roundup of news and interviews from around the interwebs.


In a very important victory for freedom of speech, Maya Forstater won her case after being fired for stating her view that people cannot change their sex. As The Critic put it:

Today, though, employees across the UK can breathe a sigh of relief safe in the knowledge that they have the right not to be discriminated against for expressing the opinion that people can’t change sex and that sex matters.

The always-brilliant Carl Trueman has a great essay in First Things titled “Christians Should Rejoice Over Dobbs.” I’ve always admired Dr. Russell Moore’s writings, but Trueman notes that something has gone amiss with Moore:

The post-Dobbs silence of Russell Moore, official public theologian at evangelicalism’s flagship magazine, Christianity Today, is a case in point. In June 2022, when Roe finally fell and public space in the United States was aggressively queered as never before, neither issue apparently rose to the level of importance that required public comment from the most well-known evangelical public theologian in the country. That is deeply sad and a complete dereliction of duty at a time when so many evangelicals want help in thinking through these matters.

Despite the fact that nearly every European country has abortion laws that would be impossible under Roe v. Wade, the European Union took aim at the U.S. Supreme Court with a condemnation of the Dobbs decision:

The European Parliament voted 324-155, with 38 abstentions, to condemn the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade and demand that abortion rights be enshrined in the EU’s fundamental rights charter.

For his part, Joe Biden passed an executive order on abortion seeking to blunt the impact of Dobbs—but as The Guardian noted, there’s really not much he can do. Biden has promised to fund lawyers for those procuring illegal abortions and to make the abortion pill more available, but executive orders have their limits. It is interesting to see that despite his abortion extremism and that of his HHS secretary and vice-president, they appear to be at a loss as to what to do practically.


The Bidens are touchy, too. From The Guardian:

The US army has suspended a retired three-star general from a lucrative consultant’s role after a social media post appearing under his name taunted first lady Jill Biden’s support of abortion rights.

Former top army spokesperson Gary Volesky, who retired as a lieutenant general and earned a silver star for gallantry while serving in Iraq, was making $92 an hour advising military officers, staff and students who were taking part in war games and other similar activities. But then a Twitter account under his name replied to a statement from Biden that condemned the supreme court’s decision on 24 June to reverse its landmark 1973 ruling in Roe v Wade which had established federal abortion rights.

“For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies,” the Democratic first lady’s statement said about the ruling, which in effect outlawed abortions in more than half the country. “Today, that right was stolen from us.” An account under Volesky’s name replied: “Glad to see you finally know what a woman is.” Some on the platform interpreted the remark as a verbal potshot at the Biden White House’s support for the transgender community.

A California doctor has made this proposal:

A California doctor is proposing a floating abortion clinic in the Gulf of Mexico as a way to maintain access for people in southern states where abortion bans have been enacted. The idea is to provide a clinic aboard a ship in federal waters, and out of reach of state laws, that would offer first trimester surgical abortions, contraception and other care, said Dr. Meg Autry, an obstetrician and gynecologist and a professor at the University of California San Francisco.

The proposal comes as abortion access in the southern United States has been swiftly curtailed after the U.S. Supreme Court turned the issue of abortion back to the states.

Funding these abortions, however, couldn’t come from the top—the federal government is restricted by the Hyde Amendment.


Exhibit #3,421 for why you shouldn’t send your kids to a public school comes from The Daily Mail:

School children were told prostitution is a ‘rewarding job’ by sex education providers who promoted wild kinks to pupils. Organisations brought in to teach kids about sex have introduced children to hardcore kinks including being flogged, caned, locking people up in a cage and being slapped in the face, The Times reported.

Children were even told to show where they liked to touch themselves by one organisation. Private contractor Bish (Best in Sexual Health) is written by Justin Hancock and charges £500 a day to deliver sex education sessions at secondary schools.

    It’s true that EP voted a resolution condemning US Supreme Court’s decision 324 to 155 with 38 abstentions, but it’s important to know that EP has 705 MEPs, the resolution was introduced by the left wing political parties and more than one third of them did not participate in voting at all. Those who did vote in favor make almost a half, like 49% of MEPs. Surprisingly enough there were quite a bunch of left wing MEPs who voted against the resolution and it got this 49% support with assistance of right wing votes in favor. It might help you to see things into perspective. If interested in more, google the resolution number B9-0365/2022. Don’t despair about EU. Just because a bunch of freaks vote on something, it doesn’t mean that European politics goes downhill from now on.
