A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, grandson of the Queen of England, son of the future king of England, has decided to weigh in once again on American politics. This time, in a long, boring, and monotone speech on the legacy of Nelson Mandela (shot through with so many cliches that those who stayed awake deserve a round of applause), Harry mourned the fall of Roe v. Wade, calling it part of a “global assault on democracy and freedom” along with the war on Ukraine. The speech, however, indicated that Harry may fall out of the limelight sooner than he thinks, not because he’s woke—because he’s boring.
The National Review editors condemn the recent Congressional bill requiring that all states stick with the Supreme Court’s 2015 redefinition of marriage, with 47 Republicans joining the Democrats. Here was Pete Buttigieg’s reaction to all this:
The Supreme Court only imposed a redefinition of marriage on all fifty states in *2015.* A definition nobody questioned for thousands of years.
Notice there's no argument here–only a repeated statement of the date. https://t.co/nJhVvDrmh0

The European Union is again targeting Hungary over its law protecting minors from LGBT propaganda:
In two separate filings Friday with the Court of Justice, the European Commission sued Hungary over a Hungarian law which discriminates against people on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The EU Commission also sued the government of Hungary’s nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban for breaching EU telecoms rules with the Hungarian Media Council’s refusal to renew the license of Klubradio, a broadcaster critical of Orban’s government. The Hungarian law, in particular, singles out and targets LGBTQ and intersex content that “promotes or portrays” what it refers to as “divergence from self-identity corresponding to sex at birth, sex change or homosexuality” for individuals under 18.

Over at Unherd, Paul Kingsnorth has a fascinating column titled “How the Left fell for capitalism.” I disagree with Kingsnorth on much, but he is always challenging.
Some Church of England bishops actually voted to condemn crisis pregnancy centers because they do not provide abortion.
The Internet is making us miserable, and we all know it—but few can describe why like Samuel D. James. Read this essay: “How Connectivity Made Us Miserable.”
One of Us has an analysis of the serious negative consequences of the abortion pill.
The scandal of our destruction of a generation of children through gender ideology continues. Watch this:
Reprehensible. Duke Academics casually discuss how to block puberty in children while helping them to experience orgasms through masturbation. pic.twitter.com/8GvnFCugKk

Remember when Darwin’s theory of evolution was “settled science”? Well, scientists are now admitting that it is…no longer settled. The left-wing Guardian has an entire essay explaining why.
One thought on “Prince Harry compares the overturn of Roe to the war in Ukraine (& other stories)”
It’s the Episcopal Church, an American denomination, that voted on PRCs and affirmed abortion on demand. They splintered off from the Church of England and use a similar liturgy, but they are fully independent. The Church of England isn’t nearly as bad (not yet at least).
