Religion is key factor in connecting men to their families

Religion is key factor in connecting men to their families

Religious practice seems to effectively connect men to families by encouraging marriage, discouraging divorce, and promoting norms of involved husbands and fathers. An increase in disengaged men portends negative consequences for families and communities, but religious faith, and particularly religious practice, seems to be a powerful counterforce. Active participation in religion by men leads to greater engagement and commitment to family, which in turn is likely to foster those norms in children and communities. read more

More Radical Than Roe: House Abortion Bill Would Repeal Existing Laws, Prohibit Future Pro-Life Laws

More Radical Than Roe: House Abortion Bill Would Repeal Existing Laws, Prohibit Future Pro-Life Laws

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her congressional allies—as well as the media—have characterized the Women’s Health Protection Act as simply “codifying Roe v. Wade.” That’s an egregious mischaracterization that understates just how radical the proposal actually is. The Act goes far beyond the already permissive regime permitted under America’s existing abortion jurisprudence. read more

Who Should Teach Your Pre-K Toddler, You or Biden and Pelosi?

Who Should Teach Your Pre-K Toddler, You or Biden and Pelosi?

Buried in this massive proposal for federal spending are two line items under the heading “Universal preschool.” They call for spending $139,158,000,000 over the next 10 years on “universal preschool grants” to states and $25,684,000,000 for a “Head Start educator fund.” That’s a total of $164,842,000,000 in federal subsidies to help states take daytime custody of preschool children. In his budget, Biden said that a part of his plan “would provide universal access to high-quality preschool to all three- and four-year olds, led by a well-trained and well-compensated workforce.” The question here is fundamental: Who should care for and nurture a 36-month-old child? Should it be the government? Or should it be the child’s parents? read more

When the State Comes for Your Kids

When the State Comes for Your Kids

Here are the powers granted to a 13-year-old child by the state of Washington. Minors age 13 and up are entitled to admit themselves for inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment without parental consent. Health insurers are forbidden from disclosing to the insured parents’ sensitive medical information of minor children—such as that regarding “gender dysphoria [and] gender affirming care.” Minors aged 13 to 18 can withhold mental health records from parents for “sensitive” conditions, which include both “gender dysphoria” and “gender-affirming care.” Insurers in Washington must cover a wide array of “gender-affirming treatments” from tracheal shaves to double mastectomies. Lest you wonder whether there is some madcap elixir polluting the groundwater of Washington State alone, in 2015, Oregon passed a law permitting minors 15 and older to obtain puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries at taxpayers’ expense—all without parental consent. In 2018, California passed a similar bill for all children in foster care, age 12 and up. The California state senate is now considering an amendment to the Confidentiality of Medical Information Act that would bar health insurers from disclosing medical information to parents about their dependents, on pain of criminal liability. read more

WHY THE EQUALITY ACT (HR5) IS AN ISSUE

WHY THE EQUALITY ACT (HR5) IS AN ISSUE

Much of the Equality Act impacts religious faith that values gender empowerment, sexual integrity, and the sanctity of opposite sex marriage. While establishing historical protections for the LGBTQ community, the Equality Act threatens protections awarded to women, to religious liberty and to freedom of speech and conscience. read more
