GOP lawmaker: Teach grade-school classes on traditional gender roles

    The Hill: Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said grade-school students should be taught classes about traditional gender roles in a floor speech on Tuesday. “You know, maybe part of the problem is we need to go back into the schools at a very early age, maybe at the grade-school level, and have a class for the young girls and have a class for the young boys and say, you know, this is what’s important,” Gingrey said.

Abortion: Sacred Ground? | Kathryn Jean Lopez at NRO

    Kathryn Jean Lopez at NRO:Abortion is an act of violence of the most intimate sort. The more we accept it as “sacred ground,” as Pelosi put it, as some kind of sign of liberation, the more we fail to see the culture it ingrains, where men are disconnected — with no shame — from their children, where women submit to being used rather than cherished, and where babies — whom we know to be babies, not mere tissue or cells — are discarded. There’s an exploitation happening here, ending some lives and ruining others.

All female roaring aside, children still need fathers | Kathleen Parker at USA Today

    Kathleen Parker at USA Today: My argument that men should be saved is that, despite certain imperfections, men are fundamentally good and are sort of pleasant to have around. Most women still like to fall in love with them; all children want a father no matter how often we try to persuade ourselves otherwise. If we continue to impose low expectations and negative messaging on men and boys, future women won’t have much to choose from. We are nearly there.

Church of England Archbishops to ask clergy: ‘Are you having gay sex?’

House passes Defense bill aimed at blunting sexual assaults

    The Hill: The House on Friday passed a new defense bill that that seeks to reverse an increase in sexual assaults in the military. The sweeping $638 billion bill strips commanders’ ability to overturn guilty verdicts in sexual assault cases, and establishes a minimum sentence of dismissal for sexual assault offenders. It would also expand legal counsel to victims of sexual abuse, and remove service members who have inappropriate relationships with the people they train.

‘Stop Being a Baby’: Infanticide and the infantilization of women.

    James Taranto at Wall Street Journal: But Myers is making a far broader claim. He is asserting that a woman’s seeking an abortion is sufficient to establish that she is not culpable for any consequences that proximately result from her “choice,” including the deliberate killing, after birth, of the baby she sought to abort. Myers is, in other words, positing that women who seek abortions are categorically free of culpability.
    That is the sort of moral immunity we normally extend to persons who lack the capacity to understand . . .

    Dennis Prager at NRO: In our dialogue, we agreed that her book’s subtitle was accurate, but we disagreed as to the cause. Freitas, who holds a Ph.D. in religious studies, blamed it on peer pressure, the sex-drenched social media of young people, and the ubiquity of pornography. I blamed three other culprits: feminism, careerism, and secularism.

An economy that’s tearing our society apart

    Robert J. Samuelson at Washington Post: It’s hard to overstate the breakdown of marriage and the rise of single-parent families. Consider out-of-wedlock births. In 1980, about 18 percent of births were to unmarried women; by 2009, the proportion was 41 percent. Among whites, the increase was from 11 percent to 36 percent; among African Americans, from 56 percent to 72 percent; among Hispanics, from 37 percent (1990) to 53 percent. Or look at the share of children living with two parents. Since 1970, that’s dropped from 82 percent to 63 percent. Among whites, the decline is from 87 percent to 73 percent; among African Americans, from 57 percent to 31 percent; among Hispanics, from 78 percent to 57 percent. Just what caused these changes remains controversial.

The Sanctity of Life, Even in a Test Tube | Robert P. George at WSJ

    Robert P. George at WSJ: Sir Robert Edwards, the Nobel Prize-winning British “test tube baby” pioneer who died last week at age 87, devoted his career to developing in vitro fertilization as a technique to enable women afflicted with certain forms of infertility to conceive and bear children. As a result, there are millions of people in the world today—some now in their 30s—who otherwise would not have been born. According to Edwards’s admirers, their lives are his legacy.
    Yet Edwards was, and remains, a controversial figure. His critics fall into three categories and are a most unlikely combination.

    S.E. Cupp at NY Daily Post: When Susan Patton wrote a letter to The Daily Princetonian last week, she probably had no concept of the controversy it would create. What she later described as merely “some good advice from a Jewish mother” has earned her the scorn of feminists everywhere. Why? Because in 2013, you’re not supposed to talk to modern young women at an elite liberal university about the value of getting married.
