Hungary’s Viktor Orbán: LGBT propaganda is ‘the greatest threat stalking our children’.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered a State of the Nation address on February 18 in which he doubled down on his government’s commitment to protect children from “gender propaganda” which he linked to “pedophilia.”

He called on lawmakers to embrace the enacting of the “strictest child protection system in Europe.”

“Gender propaganda is not just an entertaining caper,” he continued, “not just rainbow chatter, but the greatest threat stalking our children.”

We Don’t Need to Keep Reminding Women That Motherhood Is Hard.

For centuries, women have proven capable not only of caring for themselves but also nurturing friendships, growing businesses, and responding to community needs, all while raising children. Yet now, so much of our dialogue (reflected in my doctor’s response to my child’s presence at the appointment), is that kids get in the way of our ability merely to survive, let alone thrive. Read more

Traditional Countries Accuse EU of Bad Faith.

Traditional countries defended the family against the European Union and progressive delegations, even accusing them of brinkmanship and bad faith, in a UN negotiation about social protection policies.

“We would like to remind everyone that the family is defined in binding international human rights instruments as the natural and fundamental group unit of society and that it is entitled to protection from society and the State,” said a delegate from Nigeria as the resolution was adopted in the UN Commission on Social Development on Wednesday. Read more

New Clinton Book about Rachel Levine Reconstructs Glass Ceilings.

A new children’s chapter book, partially authored by Chelsea Clinton, highlights transgender-identifying Rachel Levine, assistant secretary for health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as an example of “women who spoke up and rose up against the odds…” “She Persisted: Rachel Levine” is part of a multi-book series that claims to be “A perfect choice for kids who love learning and teachers who want to bring inspiring women into their curriculum.” According to the item description, the book provides “a list of ways that readers can follow in Rachel Levine’s footsteps”; of course, the intended audience of the book is children aged six to nine. Read more

Parenting/Parental Rights

Canada considers allowing assisted suicide for children without parental consent.

A parliamentary committee has called for expanding Canada’s assisted suicide program so that “mature minors” whose deaths are “reasonably foreseeable” be allowed to hasten their deaths without parental consent.

The Special Joint Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying presented its report last week for discussion in the House of Commons, recommending that minors should be eligible for doctor-assisted suicide. Read more

Is Your Baby Non-Binary? Now Pennsylvania Social Workers Must Report On This.

How far is this madness going to go? It started with the increasingly common assumption that newborn babies are “assigned” a gender at birth, as if doing so were an arbitrary bureaucratic process that could often be erroneous. Now the Pennsylvania state Office of Child Development and Early Learning is going even farther, requiring social workers to report on the gender identity of newborns: forms now ask whether the baby is Male, Female, or “Gender Non-Binary.” How on God’s weary earth is a social worker supposed to be able to tell whether or not a tiny just-born baby is a budding Rachel Levine? The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning did not deign to explain that little detail. Read more

Spain passes radical law repealing abortion restrictions, mandating pro-LGBT sex ed for children.

The new law strips informed consent requirements for abortion, creates a public list of pro-life doctors, and mandates homosexual and transgender ideology at all education levels.

Despite a large Catholic population, Spain has seen an increase in abortions obtained by pregnant women and girls as well as a greater push to enshrine a “right” to abortion in legislation. A 2019 study found that abortion is treated as birth control in the country, with over half of pregnant teenagers choosing to kill their babies rather than choose life. The data also showed that more than 35,000 mothers had chosen abortion multiple times. Read more

Sanctity of Life

Abortion tourism on the rise in Florida despite the end of Roe v. Wade.

Despite its reputation as a “right-wing paradise,” Florida recorded a 14-year-high of over 82,000 abortions in 2022, the same year the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a grassroots pro-life group is warning. Read more

Minnesota Democrats Push Bill to Legalize Infanticide, Let Babies Die Who Survive Abortions.

Babies are born alive in abortions almost every year in Minnesota. In 2021, there were five, according to state health data.

But Democrat lawmakers are advancing radical pro-abortion legislation that would repeal a law requiring medical care for these babies, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life warned this week.

“This utterly extreme bill would leave virtually no protections for unborn children, at any stage of pregnancy, on the books in Minnesota,” MCCL co-executive director Cathy Blaeser said in January. “Most appalling, though, H.F. 91 would even repeal protections for the life of an infant born alive after abortion, moving Minnesota backward from a community of compassion to one of active and callous cruelty.” Read more

U.S. Military to Receive Time Off and Travel Expenses to Obtain Abortions.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) will now grant up to three weeks off and pay transportation expenses for servicemembers or dependent family members who travel to obtain an abortion. The new policy is an effort by the federal government to frustrate the laws of states that have ended or restricted abortion following last June’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

This is the U.S. government being actively pro-abortion. Read more


Leftist Group Slams Religious Freedom Summit for ‘Hate’; Democrat Responds.

“The 2023 Summit partners comprised a culturally, religiously, and politically diverse group—and this is by design,” Lantos Swett added. “To be certain, there are many issues on which my views do not align with or are even in opposition to those of my summit co-chair or summit partners. But those differences do not preclude us working together in positive ways on the issue where we can find common ground.”

“The IRF movement is growing every day, and I believe one of its greatest strengths is that it manages to transcend partisan politics and bring people together, despite their strong differences of opinion in other areas,” she concluded. Read more

Communist China Cracked Down On Christians In 2022, Report Says.

The People’s Republic of China (PRC) reportedly employed a range of new methods to persecute Chinese Christians in 2022 including fabricating charges of fraud as well as criminalizing the legal international travel of church leaders, the report states. China’s crackdown on Christianity reportedly intensified in the run-up to the CCP’s 20th Party Congress in October 2022, during which time General Secretary Xi Jinping secured a third term as the communist nation’s supreme leader, according to ChinaAid. Read more

Reforms could change ethos of Australia’s religious schools.

Since the state aid battles of the 1960s there has been a settlement in Australia that acknowledges the vital importance of parental choice in the education of children.

However, that choice effectively will disappear if the Australian Law Reform Commission’s recommendations on anti-discrimination in line with the wishes of the Albanese government become law. By removing the exemptions, which govern student behaviour and hiring of teachers that give a school its special character and ethos, there will be no difference between a state school and a religious school. Considering that more than a third of all Australian children are being educated outside state systems – overwhelmingly in religious schools – this means the government is effectively ignoring the wishes of a third of Australian parents. Read more


Yes, Europe Is Restricting “Gender-Affirming Care”.

A common claim by Americans who oppose state restrictions on “gender-affirming care” is that Sweden, Finland, and the U.K. have not done away with hormonal interventions—and therefore that Republican lawmakers who seek such restrictions are going beyond Europe, and presumably against what European health authorities recommend.

In the past few years, European health authorities conducted systematic reviews of evidence for the benefits and risks of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. The findings from these reviews—that the certainty of benefits is very low—guided the hand of policymakers there to restrict access to hormones. Read more

Is ‘Pride’ a veil covering deep inner trauma?

How did a major world city arrive at hosting not an afternoon or even a weekend even, but a fortnight of celebration for a lifestyle which at the turn of the 20th century would have had you imprisoned in the Western world?

Who would have guessed that today, at the start of the 21st century, you could possibly be imprisoned for failing to worship at the altar of the rainbow-hued golden calf which falsely states that sexual attraction is immutable and that a person’s gender make-up is changeable. Read more

Ione Belarra decriminalizes zoophilia: it will not be a crime if it does not cause injury to the animal.

Bestiality will no longer be considered a criminal offense if there are no injuries to the animal. This is established by the new Penal Code through the new Animal Welfare Law promoted by Minister Ione Belarra that was approved in Congress on February 9.

This new change that has entered into force reforms the Penal Code of the PP, which in 2015 established tougher penalties for mistreatment, abandonment and, for the first time, for the sexual exploitation of animals in Spain . At that time it was considered that, like children, animals do not have the capacity to consent and, for this reason, bestiality was included as a new criminal conduct consisting of the sexual exploitation of animals, regardless of whether they are caused injuries that seriously impair its health or the death of the animal. Read more
