The ‘Immorality’ of Having Children

Travis Rieder, an environmental extremist and climate change believer featured on NBC News’ Think website, is suggesting that children harm the planet due to their carbon footprint and even compares his own daughter to a murderer who must be “responsible for her own [carbon] emissions.” Rieder goes on to write, “If having one fewer child reduces one’s contribution to the harms of climate change, the choice of family size becomes a morally relevant one.”

This kind of argument brings a new type of “morality” from the Left, a new ethical argument to which many pro-aborts might turn to in the future to endorse a “responsible” view of family planning.

Democrat Wins Alabama Senate Seat

Pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones won Alabama’s Senate seat over former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in Tuesday’s special election to fill the seat that was vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Jones, a supporter of many left-wing causes, was endorsed by the pro-LGBT Human Rights Campaign.

The loss of this staunch conservative seat is very significant, both for Alabama and for the nation as a whole. There will be 34 Senate seats open in 2018, but 26 of those are held by Democrats. The Dems need to gain only two of the eight Republican seats to take control, so the loss of this Senate seat is crucial at a time when our country’s conservative voters are increasingly showing their disenfranchisement at the polls.

Tennessee Companies Receive Perfect Score on LGBT Index

Six Tennessee-based companies were among the 609 companies nationwide to receive 100 percent on this year’s Human Rights Campaign’s 2018 Corporate Equality Index. The index gauges the extent to which businesses embrace LGBT employees and causes. The Tennessee companies include FedEx; Nissan North America; Eastman Chemical Co.; Unam Group; and two law firms, Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz PC and Bass, Berry & Sims PLC.

Getting a perfect score goes beyond having policies extending special employment rights based on a person’s sexual orientation/gender identity. Companies must also be willing to make a financial investment in LGBT causes and provide medical benefits that include sex reassignment treatments. Moreover, the index also deducts 25 points for any business that makes corporate contributions to entities that are deemed to be anti-LGBT.

California DA Orders Fetal Tissue Trafficking Companies to Close Down

After an investigation prompted by Center for Medical Progress’ undercover videos, Orange County, Calif., District Attorney Tony Rackauckas has ordered two California-based companies selling fetal tissue, DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, to permanently close down within 60 and 120 days, respectively. The two companies must also pay a settlement of $7,785,000, and DV Biologics must pay $195,000 in civil penalties.

The district attorney discovered that these two companies had “unlawfully” sold “fetal-derived products to pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions around the world” between 2009 and 2011. Both companies are owned by Andres Isaias, who is part of an internationally known crime family.

Interestingly, Planned Parenthood is not implicated and was not part of the Orange County lawsuit. However, this week both the U.S. Justice Department and FBI announced a formal investigation into Planned Parenthood.
