New Amendment Could Throw Wrench in Trump’s ‘Transgender’ Military Directive

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has until February 21 of next year to implement President Trump’s directive that prevents “transgenders” from serving in the U.S. military. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) have filed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would delay for 60 days any review by the defense secretary.

If the Gillibrand-Collins amendment becomes part of the final spending bill, then the ban on the gender-confused in the military would be delayed until spring 2018.

Artificial Wombs Could Complicate the Legality of Abortion

With the invention of an artificial womb that successfully brought several premature sheep to viability (the ability to survive outside the womb) recently, the implications for human babies within the next five years has many abortion activists trembling.

Unborn human babies could conceivably reach viability at even earlier ages with the help of these artificial wombs, and that could “complicate —and even jeopardize—the right to abortion in an America in which that right is predicated on whether a fetus is ‘viable,’” says reporter Kristen V. Brown.

As Harvard bioethicist I. Glenn Cohen stated, “This has the potential to really disrupt things, first by asking the question of whether a fetus could be considered ‘viable’ at the time of abortion if you could place it in an artificial womb.”

This new technology could severely limit the “right to abortion” and give new meaning to a woman’s right to control her own body.

National Science Foundation Funds Gender Identity Study for 4-Year-Olds

The National Science Foundation awarded a grant of $138,000 to the University of Washington for a two-year study of 250 children age 4-6, along with their parents, about gender identity. The study will look at what NSF considers early gender socialization, children’s gendered behavior, children’s gender cognition, and children’s “internal sense of gender identity.” The study is being led by researchers Kristina Olson and Selin Gülgöz, who are also involved with the University of Washington’s TransYouth Project, a “longitudinal study of transgender and gender diverse youth.”

From the sound of it, the federal funding is going toward an already biased research project, and one seriously wonders whether the results from this study are going to be used to propagandize preschoolers in the future.

CA Board of Registered Nursing Prohibits Pro-Life Group From Teaching Abortion Pill Reversal Course

California’s Board of Registered Nursing, reversing an earlier decision, recently sent a letter to pro-life nonprofit Heartbeat International asking it to cease and desist from educating nurses about the abortion pill reversal procedure that has been shown to save a baby from a chemical abortion.

“This is a naked political assault on a procedure that is the very essence of choice . . . This is the abortion lobby taking choices away from women,” said Heartbeat International’s president, Jor-El Godsey, about the sudden board reversal. The ministry had already undergone a 17-month audit prompted by California state Sen. Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo) before this latest news.

Heartbeat International was given five days from receipt of the cease and desist letter to remove the continuing education unit credit from its online Abortion Pill Reversal courses, and the pro-life ministry is complying. But the courses will still be available online through the Heartbeat International Academy while the organization appeals the board’s latest decree.

FEMA Rejects Supporting Houston Churches After Harvey

Three Houston churches that provided humanitarian aid to victims of Hurricane Harvey have sued the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) after the agency denied them relief funding because they spent more than half of their space on “religious programming.”

President Trump tweeted in support of these churches, “Churches in Texas should be entitled to reimbursement from FEMA Relief Funds for helping victims of Hurricane Harvey (just like others).” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) chimed in with a letter to FEMA concerning the policy stating, “[I]t is unconstitutional. It is unreasonable. And it is impeding ongoing recovery efforts.”

According to USA Today, at least 75 percent of humanitarian relief is driven by faith-based organizations, so what would happen if the government no longer partnered with “religious” institutions in the wake of a natural disaster? It is likely that it would result in greater government spending, a slower recovery, and many folks not being helped in their time of need.
