Pitlyk fits the mold of many of President Donald Trump’s court picks: young, white and a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative lawyers’ group that has served as a pipeline for judges for this White House. Most Federalist Society-backed nominees also tend to have records of opposing abortion, LGBTQ rights and voting rights.

In private practice and in her work at the Thomas More Society, Pitlyk built a clear record of attacking reproductive rights. She defended anti-abortion activist David Daleiden, who broke federal and state laws by secretly recording and deceptively editing videos that falsely claimed to expose Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of fetal tissue. She defended Iowa’s six-week abortion ban that was later struck down as unconstitutional. In another case, Pitlyk argued that it is “scientific fact” that “human life begins at the moment when a human sperm fertilizes a human egg.” (It is not scientific fact.)

After losing that case, Pitlyk lamented that “the trial court’s judgment treated the embryonic children as inanimate objects, not human beings with the same interests as other unborn children.”

 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Pitlyk also filed multiple legal briefs with misinformation about fertility treatments, including the claim that children conceived by IVF have “higher rates of birth defects, genetic disorders and other anomalies.”

What Trump has actually done in his first 3 years

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/12/2/20970521/trump-administration-achievements

The scandals, the leaks, the outrages, and the bizarre tweets of the last three years can distract from an important fact about President Donald Trump: He has changed policy in ways that affect the lives of millions of Americans.

Some of the Trump agenda is standard for a Republican president. White-collar criminal prosecutions have hit a 33-year low. The Justice Department defends state laws that could kick thousands off the voting rolls. The National Labor Relations Board is now more sympathetic to employers than unions. And military spending is on track to reach the same levels as during the height of the Iraq War.

But he’s gone further. While the media, understandably, focuses on Trump’s many scandals, his administration has quietly enacted a far more aggressive agenda than his Republican predecessors. Big boosts to fossil fuel production have come at the expense of an unprecedented deterioration in air quality. Tens of thousands of people have lost health insurance by administrative fiat, and millions are in the process of losing their nutritional assistance through the same mechanism. He’s remade the judiciary, installing conservative judges at twice Obama’s pace, and he’s consolidated a conservative majority on the Supreme Court that may endure for decades.

This Irresponsible Sex Ed Curriculum Is Being Taught in Texas School Districts

Filed under: Criminal, Education, Fascism, Gender, Health, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 07:35

This is a short disgusting look at how they are teaching young people about sex in Texas using biblical religious groups to do it.   They make no mention of female arousal or desire because you know only males count.   The two short videos are so stupid and shaming.  The kids learn nothing but don’t touch your self,  never touch others, don’t think about sex , and girls don’t want it.  Do any of those things you are a dirty horrible person doomed to failure and will make Jesus cry.  This is in public schools.   This take over of religion into the secular public schools is hurting kids and causing needless stress on them.  Because it is short I am not going to post quotes, but notice the organization charges over 35 thousand dollars for this nonsense.   Oh they also lie about condoms and birth control, but he what do you expect from fear mongers holy people.    Hugs

Three Utah Girls Stood Up To a Teacher Who Condemned a Boy For Having Two Dads

Three Utah Girls Stood Up To a Teacher Who Condemned a Boy For Having Two Dads

A group of girls knew exactly what to do when they heard their fifth-grade substitute teacher at Deerfield Elementary School in Utah castigate a classmate who said that, for Thanksgiving, he was most thankful that he was “finally going to be adopted by my two dads.” The teacher launched into a 10-minute lecture on why “two men living together is a sin,” so the girls protested. Several times.

When their efforts failed to deter the teacher, the three girls left the room to get the principal and the teacher was escorted unceremoniously out of the classroom.

Courtney Tanner of the Salt Lake Tribune tells the story:

Students later said that the substitute snapped, “Why on earth would you be happy about that?”

For the next 10 minutes she lectured the 30 kids in the class about her own views, how “homosexuality is wrong” and “two men living together is a sin.” She looked at the boy, too, and told him: “That’s nothing to be thankful for.”

“She also tried to blame our son,” said one of the boy’s dads, Louis van Amstel, “and told him that it was his fault that she went off.

The saddest thing about this story may be that the boy at the center of it all was reluctant to challenge his teacher out of fear that it might hurt his chances of having the adoption finalized, after two previous unsuccessful attempts. That process is scheduled to be completed the week before Christmas.

Wisconsin Church Hosts Thanksgiving for LGBTQ People Rejected By Their Families

Wisconsin Church Hosts Thanksgiving for LGBTQ People Rejected By Their Families

 

It’s a reminder that a family you choose is no less important than the one you’re given, and that churches can indeed play a role in promoting love and inclusivity instead of being a force for divisiveness.

 

“Having someone not accept you is really hard but when it’s someone as close with your family it’s much harder,” added Yellow Brick Road leader Marilyn Schuh.

We all deserve a place at a Thanksgiving table where we feel loved and accepted. Thanksgiving is about coming together and giving thanks for those people we love in our life. We couldn’t think of anyone else we would rather spend this day with than you!” reads the event’s description on Facebook.

As The Advocate notes, these kinds of events can’t be under-appreciated:

Events like these can help LGBTQ people feel connected and supported in the face of ostracism. In a 2013 Pew survey, about four in ten LGBTQ people reported being rejected by a friend or family member. LGBTQ youth are at a much higher risk of becoming homeless.

Having a community like this goes a long way to minimizing those risks.

Trump and White House officials are guilty of Jury Tampering

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/11/21/1900989/-Hospitals-Kill-and-Injure-Women-in-the-Name-of-Pro-Life-Ethics?utm_campaign=trending

The woman arrived at a Texas hospital so ill she couldn’t walk. Her last pregnancy caused heart failure, and the new pregnancy put her at immediate risk of cardiac arrest, according to a Rewire interview with Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, the physician who cared for the woman. But hospital administrators refused to give the woman an abortion. She wouldn’t die right then, they reasoned, so she wasn’t really “dead enough” to justify life-saving care. The woman had no insurance and no other realistic options for life-saving care. She left the hospital and Dr. Moayedi never learned what happened to her.

Her story is not an outlier. Women across the nation who need life-saving abortion care or miscarriage treatment may not receive it. And thanks to “conscience laws,” they might not even know they need the care.

Many people have heard about Catholic hospitals that deny abortion care to women in need. But what few may realize is that public hospitals in 11 states are also restricted from providing abortion care. While some states offer exceptions to save the patient’s life, ethics boards and administrators who fear government sanctions may be unwilling to undertake the risk of performing any abortions. In some states, such as Arizona, there is no specific exception for life-saving care. Hospitals are supposed to leave women to die.

There is much more at the link above.  This is a travesty.    How can this be “pro-life” if they are willing to kill a living woman to enforce births?  This is about control over females bodies and control over females sexual expression.    Hugs

Under Trump, LGBTQ Progress Is Being Reversed in Plain Sight

https://projects.propublica.org/graphics/lgbtq-rights-rollback

Yet since taking office, Trump’s administration has acted to dismantle federal protections and resources for LGBTQ Americans, particularly those gained under President Barack Obama.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment about its track record on LGBTQ issues. In response to our questions, agency officials defended these changes, largely depicting them as necessary corrections to overreach by the Obama administration. Elsewhere, the administration has also promoted its goal to “end the HIV epidemic in the U.S.” by 2030, which includes efforts to expand access to drugs that prevent and treat HIV infections.

ProPublica reviewed actions taken by the Trump administration that could directly affect LGBTQ citizens. We found dozens of changes that represent a profound reshaping of the way the federal government treats the more than 11 million lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

Pat Robertson: The Trans Movement Wants to “Keep People from Having Children”

Pat Robertson: The Trans Movement Wants to “Keep People from Having Children”

“The devil has found a new way to keep people from bearing young in the image of God,” Robertson said. “To think that these people will then be neutered, they will not be able to be married, to have successful families, they won’t have children to look after them in their old age. I mean, they are throwing away their whole future on this nonsense that comes about in this politically correct environment.”

Trans people don’t necessarily have surgery. But even if they do, they can (and do) get married. They can (and do) have successful families. They can (and do) have kids. They can (and do) have futures — good ones, too, if not for the likes of Robertson and his Christian allies.

What they don’t have is Robertson’s hate-fueled ignorance.

After Death Threats, Drag Queen Story Time Event Cancelled in West Virginia

Another case of Christians demanding others follow their doctrines and doing so with force and threats.   These people do not want democracy and do not care about anyone else’s rights.   The only thing that matters is forcing everyone to follow their god, their rules, and do things the way they do.  They are thugs using religion to get their own way.  We need to return to the rule of law before these people take over by force to make this country a theocracy.  Hugs

After Death Threats, Drag Queen Story Time Event Cancelled in West Virginia

Drag Queen Story Hours are becoming popular events around the country, but they are not without controversy. Many Christian protesters take it upon themselves to try to get the events cancelled, despite the fact that the story times remain family-friendly and help children understand inclusiveness.

The Drag Queen Story Time was scheduled for today, but credible violent threats motivated the volunteers to cancel the event for the safety of everyone involved. The library issued a statement yesterday afternoon:

Paul Liller, one of the scheduled readers at the event, said he received the threatening messages through Facebook on Thursday:

“I know where you live now who’s out side your home”

That’s what I will do you wanted to know” along with an image stating “no trespassing” “violators will be shot, survivors will be shot again”

And the final post linked multiple stories with Liller’s name in them as well as a link to a story saying an actor sharing Liller’s name had died, then posted “The men the work with me when I was 16 I know you guys can put a stop to will you please do this for me I know you have the power to do this Do it to save the kids.”
