“Federal Agency to Support Lambda Legal/CWLA Guidelines for LGBTQ Youth in Foster Care”

    Lambda Legal: “The single most important principle contained in the guidelines is that affirming the sexual orientation and gender identity and expression of LGBTQ youth in care protects young peoples’ emotional safety and ensures positive outcomes,” said Flor Bermudez, Lambda Legal’s Youth in Out-of-Home Care Staff Attorney. “We are pleased that the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) will make the Recommended Practice Guidelines available to every state child welfare agency in the country to help meet the needs of LGBTQ children.”

Is In-Vitro Fertilization Really About the Children?

    Rebecca Taylor at I have heard countless times that parents that undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) must love their children so very much to go through such an expensive and invasive process to have children. I have no doubt that parents undergoing IVF think they love their children and are doing what is best, but looking at the realities of IVF, that many parents are not aware of, one has to wonder if IVF is really about the children.

Canada: “Honour Killing Entrenched in Islam”

    Canada Free Press: Against the backdrop of the Shafia honour-killing trial in Kingston, Montreal’s Concordia University graduate Sikander Ziad Hashmi, an imam with the Islamic Society of Kingston, tells us “there is no such thing as ‘honour killing’ in Islam.” Last week, Hashmi challenged readers of Canada’s National Post Full Commentonline to find one classical Islamic religious text that endorses the murder of a family member to preserve honour. PointdeBascule in Montreal answers the imam’s request by producing not one, but TWO Islamic texts stating that a father who kills his child must NOT be subject to punishment (“retaliation”).

    LifeNews: Michael Norton of the Alliance Defense Fund, a pro-life legal group, is also encouraged. “The seven former Planned Parenthood employees told Congressman Stearns that they could “state categorically, from personal experience, that abortion is indeed deployed [by Planned Parenthood] as a means of family planning.” They also expressed to Congressman Stearns that, since Planned Parenthood receives $1 billion or more in a three year period, close governmental oversight is indeed warranted,” he explained. “Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion allies, including the Obama Administration, are doing all they can to resist Congressman Stearns’ long overdue investigation,” Norton said. “Let the Stearns’ investigation proceed apace.”

    Frank Gaffney at Townhall: To the contrary, the Obama administration has been working behind the scenes to do as its Islamist friends have demanded by shutting down the USCIRF. It has enlisted for this purpose Senator Dick Durbin, the Senate’s Number 2 Democrat. Sen. Durbin is not only perfectly placed to do the deed stealthily. He has his own close associations with a number of the Brotherhood’s top fronts and operatives in his home state of Illinois, in Washington and elsewhere across the country.
