Teenage 'Boy' Harvests Eggs to be Mother & 'Father'

18-year-old Nicole Carman has her heart set on being a mother, but first she plans to pretend to be a man — permanently!  Therefore, before she has her healthy ovaries and uterus ripped from her body, she is undergoing medical procedures to extract her eggs and freeze them so, at some time in the future, some other woman can serve as surrogate mother while "Cole" Carman will pretend to be the father (but actually will be the mother).
As reported:
Because Carman was so certain fatherhood was in his future, he researched the procedure, talked to his doctors and parents about it, and finally decided to go ahead.

-- From "This Transgender Teen Froze His Eggs Before Transitioning" by Jack Linshi, Time Magazine 8/2/15

An 18-year-old transgender man shared on Saturday his story of freezing his eggs prior to beginning hormone therapy, one of the first transgender teens to have done so, according to his doctor.

In a profile in People, Cole Carman said his doctor had introduced the possibility of freezing his eggs in January, when he was about to start testosterone therapy following his double mastectomy. “I already knew I wanted kids, so to say yes and make that decision was a no-brainer,” he said.

From "Meet 18-Year-Old Cole Carman, One of the First Transgender Teens to Freeze Eggs Before Transitioning" by Christina Butan, People Magazine

The teen, who hails from the San Francisco area, had first started looking into transgender issues when he was 12, but didn't really understand what it meant to be transgender. He came to a better understanding of the definition last year.

[Carman's] parents funded the entire procedure, which cost about $13,000. Carman advises other teens in his situation to think very carefully about how personally important it is to have biological children.

"It's a lot of money and there are other ways," he said. "You should think, how important would it be that your child is related to you? That would be the biggest factor to play in into making the decision."

"It's a journey and an emotional roller coaster ride," [Carman's adoptive mother] C.J. said. "But I think it's really important for parents to understand that [the surgeries] aren't something that's a choice, they're a necessity. Love your child, be open minded and get information."

From "Teen Is Among the First in the Country to Freeze Eggs Before Transitioning" by Hannah Orenstein, Seventeen Magazine 7/29/15

The issue is particularly personal for Cole, who was adopted at five and half weeks old by a couple who couldn't have biological children.

"My husband and I have been really supportive of her and it seemed like a very important issue because, you know, who doesn't want children that are part of them?" Cole's mother C.J. told  NBC Bay Area. "My husband and I could never have children so I understand how that feels."

The procedure was successful, and Cole is optimistic for the future. He's heading off to college in the fall and wants to one day be an advocate for LGBT rights. He is now taking weekly testosterone injections and recently underwent top surgery.

Fertility expert Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, who treated Cole, says that he is among the first trans teens in the country to freeze his eggs before undergoing male hormone replacement therapy. The timing is important because once Cole began taking testosterone, his ovaries began shutting down, making it difficult to harvest eggs in the future.

From "Transgender Teen, 18, Undergoes Rare Surgery So He Can Be a Dad One Day" by Esther Crain, Writer, Yahoo Parenting 7/30/15

When 18-year-old Cole Carman made the decision to transition from female to male late last year, the San Francisco-area teen knew that he would be in for major surgery and hormone therapy.

That didn’t stop Carman, a recent high school grad set to start college in the fall, from signing on for another potentially risky medical procedure: egg retrieval. It’s a fairly routine (yet still major) surgery, typically undertaken by egg donors and some women undergoing in-vitro fertilization.

“Some transgender people who realized after gender reassignment surgery that they wanted kids of their own had no chance, because they already had their reproductive organs removed,” Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, a fertility specialist in San Ramon, Calif., told Yahoo Parenting.

“Others who didn’t have ‘bottom’ [sex-reassignment] surgery still had difficulty, because after years of testosterone therapy, their ovaries would shut down and would not reawaken to create any viable eggs, or the eggs would be low quality,” she said.

Christian Prayer Outrages California City Council

Commissioners in Redwood City, near San Francisco, California, immediately suspended opening invocations at city council meetings after Pastor Stephen Converse of Grace Bible Church prayed to God Almighty for all citizens of the city and nation in a Biblical context regarding abortion and same-sex marriage.
“We pray for the leaders of this country and its leaders who have clearly turned from your ways, oh God.  We live in a society where the murder of human life in the womb has become commonplace and our country is being terrorized not by people from foreign lands but by the very people who are responsible to protect it. . . . Lord we know that no human has the authority to redefine morality, but we live in a country where the Supreme Court, this human court, has said that murder is not murder, marriage is not marriage, and family is not family.”

No one interrupted Converse, who also serves as the city's volunteer police chaplain. But Mayor Jeff Gee later said the comments do not reflect the council's views.

"While I appreciate everyone's viewpoints, I do have to say tonight's invocation was not something I appreciate," Gee said.

Redwood City and San Mateo County LGBTQ Commissioner Jason Galisatus said a government meeting should be a place where everyone feels welcome.

City leaders and the police department plan to meet with the Redwood City Clergy Network to review guidelines for the selection of police volunteers.

Speaking for himself, Galisatus says he feels the city is doing the right thing by reviewing the invocation process.

“And ensuring that the city council chambers remain a place that is safe for everybody,” Galisatus said.

In a written statement, Converse said, “It’s unfortunate that one simple prayer offered in good faith and concern for the moral welfare of our nation and community by a local pastor has garnered such heated criticism from the Redwood City Council.”

The pastor went on to say that he didn’t intend to offend anyone, but said sometimes the truth itself can be offensive.

It wasn’t the first time Pastor Stephen Converse, from Grace Bible Church, opened a council meeting with a prayer but the first time he offered what was called offensive remarks.

“It’s unfortunate that a simple prayer has garnered such heated criticism from the council. I was invited there by them. In all honesty, I was addressing God, not man, based upon my own personal beliefs. I prayed for council and divine protection for our own police and firemen,” Converse said.

He considers the city’s act to suspend the invocations, however, as a “bit of an overreaction” but said he respects the decision.

The city has led its council meetings with invocations for decades without incident, Interim City Manager Aaron Aknin wrote in a statement Wednesday.

Parents Say Public Schools Undesirable, Feds Admit

According to a report from the U.S. Department of Education, since President Obama was elected, a surging number of parents across America say they are choosing to homeschool their children because public schools don't actually educate children, and worse, harbor a bad environment for children. While fewer parents are choosing to homeschool for religious reasons, they nonetheless want their children to be nurtured in moral surroundings.

-- From "Home-Schooling Movement Surges 62% in a Single Decade" by Peter Jesserer Smith, National Catholic Register 7/29/15

Home schooling has experienced massive growth in the United States for more than a decade. The face of the home-education movement has also changed. Fewer parents now attribute the need to give religious instruction as the driving motivation behind their choice . . .

The Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) shows the number of children educated at home between kindergarten and 12th grade increased close to 62% between 2003 and 2012. The number of home-schooled students between the ages of 5 and 17 in the U.S. rose from 1.09 million in 2003 to 1.77 million by 2012, accounting for 3.4% of the school-age population.

[Home School Legal Defense Association staff attorney Mike] Donnelly said the “National Household Education Survey” of parents in 2012 show the reasons why most parents choose to home school have diversified beyond simply religious grounds. Ninety-one percent of parents cited concerns about the environment of public schools, 77% cited moral instruction, and 74% expressed concerns about the academic instruction. A lower number, of 64%, listed wanting to give their children religious instruction as a reason, followed by 44% saying they wanted their child to have a nontraditional form of education.

When it came to parents listing the single most important reason for home schooling, the survey showed 25% of parents said they were concerned about the environment of other schools; 22% said “other reasons” (including family time, finances, travel and distance), and 19% said they were dissatisfied with the academic instruction at other schools.

From "Number of homeschooled children in U.S. continues to grow" By Wes Mayberry, The Daily Sentinel (Scottsboro, AL) 7/24/15

According to statistics from the National Center for Education, the number of homeschooled students in the U.S. grew from 850,000 in 2009 to almost 1.8 million in 2011. And National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) data from January says there are now an estimated 2.2 million home-educated students nationwide. An estimated 23,220 of these students live in Alabama, according to AL.com. NHERI President Dr. Brian Ray calls homeschooling the fastest-growing form of education in the country.

. . . According to Ray, the most common reasons parents give for homeschooling their kids are to customize the curriculum and learning environment for each child; accomplish more academically than in schools; enhance family relationships between children and parents and among siblings; provide guided and reasoned social interactions with youthful peers and adults; provide a safer environment for children and youth because of the physical violence, drugs, alcohol, psychological abuse, racism and improper and unhealthy sexuality associated with institutional schools; and/or teach and impart a particular set of values, beliefs and worldviews to children and youth.

. . . Ray says home-educated children typically score 15 to 30 percentile points higher than public-school students on standardized academic achievement tests. And homeschoolers have proven to score above average on the SAT and ACT that colleges consider for admission. Further, according to home-school.com, homeschooled students have an average college freshman GPA of 3.41 that rises to 3.46 in their senior year. By comparison, non-homeschooled students have a college freshman GPA of 3.12 that rises to 3.16 in their senior year. And homeschoolers graduate from college at a higher rate than their peers, 66.7 percent to 57.5 percent.

From "Homeschooled Students Increase as Concerns over Common Core Remain" by Justin Petrisek, Catholic Education Daily, Cardinal Newman Society 7/23/15

The latest studies show that an increasing number of students are being homeschooled by their parents in order to avoid Common Core, which is found even in many Catholic schools. There is no question that the link is there and that parents are extremely concerned about how Common Core will affect their children’s Catholic education, said Florida Catholics Against Common Core’s Rolando Perez.

“There is great concern about the indoctrination, data mining and constant testing that Common Core has brought to schools, including Catholic schools,” said Perez, who along with other concerned parents formed Florida Catholics Against Common Core. The priority for Common Core State Standards seems to be preparing students for future jobs, Perez affirmed. The standards then become utilitarian and distract from students’ moral and spiritual formation by placing too much emphasis on testing and performance.

From "Home schooling up 9.6 percent in [Florida]" posted at Herald-Tribune (Sarasota, FL) 7/19/15


The number of home-schooled children in Florida saw its biggest increase in five years during 2014-15, according to a recently released Florida Department of Education report.

Last year, the state counted 84,096 children in home schooling, up 9.6 percent from a year earlier.

The largest spike in home-schooled students prior to that, according to the Florida Department of Education data, was a 10.7 percent increase from 2010 to 2011, when there were 69,281 students from 6,714 families.

Since that time, the number of students has risen about 21 percent.

From "Celebrating a Homeschooling Milestone" by Dr. Terry Stoops, Carolina Journal 7/7/15

We know that the total number of homeschool students more than doubled over the last dozen years . . .

As the New York Times recently noted, state regulations often impede the growth of homeschooling in states such as Pennsylvania. For years, North Carolina’s homeschool law allowed only parents and guardians to provide instruction. Two years ago, homeschool families led a successful effort to change North Carolina’s definition of homeschooling.

. . . the homeschool movement is no longer monolithic. North Carolinians from a variety of racial, political, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds make great sacrifices to homeschool their children. Some endeavor to provide an education consistent with their family’s religious or cultural views.

Others are dissatisfied with the academic quality of their local public schools. Still others homeschool due to concerns about bullying or potentially harmful social environments sometimes found in traditional school settings.

Some parents prefer their children not attend public or private schools, in fear of their child not learning at a quick enough pace, falling behind or maybe even being bullied. For these parents, homeschooling was an option they were willing to explore.

Online programs and schools are growing in Indianapolis. Some programs are more online-based, while other programs have a blended-learning approach, using online and in-person courses to teach students. . . .

From "County homeschool enrollment growing rapidly" by Joe Callahan, Staff Writer, Ocala Star-Banner 7/28/15

Prior to 1900, homeschooling was the norm. As more public schools were built in the early 20th century, parents started sending their children to school. By the early 1970s, 30 states had outlawed homeschooling and by 1973 there were only 13,000 home-schooled children nationwide. But since then, especially since 1990, when enrollment was only 275,000 students, there has been a homeschooling explosion.

By 1997, homeschooling had reached 1 million students and today there are 2.2 million nationwide.

One big reason for a homeschooling explosion in Florida is that these students do not have to take the dozens of standardized tests that some say are now dominating education.

. . . colleges do not require a student to have a high school diploma. They only require a transcript, usually with grades from 24 courses, and a national test score such as the ACT or SAT.

From "Homeschooling grows in Florida, with Duval at forefront" by Denise Smith Amos, Florida Times-Union 7/27/15

. . . big reasons parents give [for homeschooling]: dissatisfaction with government or government-run schools, under-performing local schools, bullying or a fears about violence, and the need for special academic, social of physical accommodations for students.

Parents choose from a plethora of online classes, Internet-based learning materials and blended learning centers, allowing in-person and computer instruction. There also are online schools — public, private and charters — which can allow students to take one class or a series of classes.

In North Florida, home-schooling groups like HERI and co-ops let parents share teaching duties, hire teachers and tutors for elective courses, sell or swap curricula or provide group arts or science labs. HERI even hosts graduations, proms and field trips.

Under Florida law, public high schools have to open their interscholastic sports or activities such as band or choir to home-schoolers. Many schools let them attend day classes related to those pursuits.

Court Orders Lesbian Teachers back in NY School

After years of legal battling, the Manhattan Supreme Court closed the book on the November 2009 lesbian classroom romp of Alini Brito and Cindy Mauro that initially led to their firings, then suspensions, and now reinstatement with back pay and financial penalty to the taxpayers.  School employees had discovered the two naked women on the floor engaged in oral sex — an act first claimed by the pair to be Mauro checking Brito for low blood sugar (Mauro's head was between Brito's legs).

-- From "'Horndog High' teacher says NYC Ed Department gave her ‘unfair’ 2-year suspension for after-school tryst with female colleague in suit" by Dareh Gregorian, New York Daily News 7/22/15

In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Cindy Mauro, 39, says the city Department of Education — which already tried unsuccessfully to boot her because of her after-hours schoolroom tryst with another romance language teacher — has slapped her with an unfair two-year suspension.

Alini Brito, her complaint points out, got slapped with just a one-year suspension for the "same exact incident and misconduct."

In court papers, a lawyer for Cindy Mauro, . . . who was spotted by school employees topless in a classroom with teacher said other teachers had received significantly less severe penalties for crimes and inappropriate misconduct involving students and even other teachers.

They were initially fired and sued to get their jobs back. A state appeals court said that firing was too harsh a penalty, because they were "consenting adults" and no children witnessed the after-hours hookup.

. . . Mauro, 39, will return to school in September, and will receive three years of back pay, according to new court papers.

But that’s not enough for the randy French teacher. In a Manhattan lawsuit, Mauro is demanding a simple written reprimand, a measly $2,500 fine, and full back pay.

The DOE hearing officer who imposed the two-year suspension, Michael Lazan, reasoned that Brito was “terrified and begged” her assistant principal “not to tell” anyone when she was caught topless with Mauro “between [her] legs,” according to court papers.

Mauro’s reaction, however, “was at best blase,” Lazan wrote in his ruling. Mauro claimed the sexual encounter was “only a kiss” and “made light of the whole situation, as if nothing had happened.”

From "Court Orders Rehiring of 2 Brooklyn Teachers in Misconduct Case" by Ariel Kaminer, New York Times 3/21/14

A custodian heard noises, peered inside and, he said, saw a woman on the floor, topless. He alerted security. A school safety agent then barged into the room, the judge wrote, and “saw a brunette woman (Brito is dark haired) completely naked, lying on the floor” and “a blond woman (Mauro is light haired) also naked on top of the brunette.”

They instantly became the most famous teachers in New York City, winning their school the tabloid nickname of “Horndog High.” But though it all might have sounded like the stuff of overheated high school fantasy, it had some very grown-up consequences: They were fired.

Their case has gone through a series of twists, the latest this week, when an appeals court ruled, more than four years after the episode, that Ms. Brito and Ms. Mauro must be put back on the city’s payroll.

During the initial arbitration process, Ms. Brito and Ms. Mauro argued that there had been no impropriety whatsoever. Ms. Brito — who had required medical attention in the past — said she was suffering from reactive hypoglycemia, and Ms. Mauro was attending to her by laying her down, getting her sugar packets and elevating her feet, they said. Other than a sweater, which had been repurposed as a pillow for Ms. Brito, they said they were both fully dressed. They lost.

Judge Robert Torres upheld an arbitrator’s decision to fire Cindy Mauro, a former French instructor at Brooklyn’s James Madison High School, as “rational and with plausible basis.” Mauro had allegedly been spotted by a janitor half naked in a classroom lounging between the legs of a topless Brito; both women denied anything steamy was happening, with Brito insisting that Mauro was simply checking her blood sugar. City lawyers argued that there was no medical equipment found with the women, and the two had climbed six flights of stairs to get to the room, passing multiple classrooms and more than one bathroom on the way.

The Manhattan appellate judges said foreign-language teachers Alini Brito, 34, and Cindy Mauro, 38, were treated too harshly when they were dismissed for engaging in a topless classroom tryst inside Brooklyn’s James Madison HS in 2009.

The ruling stunned fellow teachers, who feared the judges have given a green light to all sorts of kinky classroom sleaze.

“[It] sets a poor example for other teachers. They may think they can do it, too,” fumed one James Madison teacher, who asked not to be named.

The ruling also shocked students at the school, which became known as “Horndog High” after news spread of Brito and Mauro’s canoodling. “A student could have walked in on them,” said 10th-grader Tiffany Kagan.

The teachers challenged the [initial] arbitration, Brito in Manhattan and Mauro in the Bronx, yielding separate results. The Bronx County Supreme Court upheld Mauro’s firing, causing Mauro to further appeal to a higher appellate court. The presiding justice in Brito’s appeal to Manhattan’s Supreme Court concluded with the presiding justice discounting the hearing officer’s observations and vacating Mauro’s firing. The DOE subsequently challenged the finding.

Brito’s and the DOE’s separate challenges were heard by the same panel of Appellate Division, 1st Department justices as they involved the same set of facts despite competing demands for relief.

In the cases against Mauro and Brito, the justices found each firing to be improper and excessive.

Atheist Prayer Complaint Costs Miss. School $7500+

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves fined the Rankin County (Mississippi) School District $7,500 plus attorney's fees, etc. as a result of legal action by the American Humanist Association concerning prayer at a high school awards ceremony, and for Gideons Bible distribution at an elementary school.

A federal judge said the Rankin County School District is in contempt of court for continuing to promote Christianity during school hours after it agreed to stop.

The district first got into trouble when a Northwest Rankin High School student sued over having to attend a school assembly that promoted Christianity. The district agreed in 2013 to settle the suit, and was supposed to implement a policy that activities during school hours would not advance, endorse or inhibit any religion.

However, in 2014, the same student attended an honors assembly that was opened by a minister's prayer.

In 2013, a Northwest Rankin High School student sued the district and then-principal Charles Frazier over a series of Christian assemblies held at the school. The district agreed it had violated the student's First Amendment rights and settled the lawsuit by entering into an agreement and paying the plaintiff's attorney fees.

However, the incidents that took place in 2014 prompted the American Humanist Association to file a motion for contempt, accusing the district of not enforcing its Religion in Public Schools policy and abiding by the terms of the agreement.

The district responded that because the ceremony with the prayer was not mandatory, it did not violated the First Amendment, and that because school officials cannot be expected to know constitutional law, it shouldn't be held liable. However, Reeves wrote in the order that each argument "crumbles under the least possible scrutiny."

In his summary, [Judge] Reeves accused the school district of trying to indoctrinate students with Christianity.

"It deliberately went out of its way to entangle Christian indoctrination in the education process," the judge argued. "From the accounts detailed in the record, it appears that incorporating religious script and prayers with school activities has been a long-standing tradition of the district."

Media, Obama Conspire With Abortionists re: Videos

As a third undercover video was released concerning Planned Parenthood involvement in selling aborted baby organs, the nation's largest abortion provider begged mainstream media outlets to embargo the video.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration defended Planned Parenthood and the right of women to kill their unborn children, and is refusing to investigate the allegations, but rather is considering a plea by top Democrat Nancy Pelosi to persecute the whistleblower pro-life organization that exposed Planned Parenthood's butchery.

The media have also largely ignored thousands of protesters across the nation calling for an end to taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood has enlisted high-profile Washington public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal and release of a third undercover video Tuesday showing a clinic’s staff handling fetal tissue after an abortion.

SKDKnickerbocker is no newbie to working on Planned Parenthood issues. The Democratically aligned firm is run by well-connected operatives, including Anita Dunn and Hilary Rosen. It also worked with the group during the 2012 election cycle, according to SKDKnickerbocker’s website.

The group circulated a memo to reporters and producers late Monday that discouraged them from airing the undercover videos, arguing that they were obtained under false identification and violated patient privacy.

Planned Parenthood also has lobbying firms Capitol Counsel on retainer. Glover Park Group has also previously done work for the group. Planned Parenthood spent nearly $1.3 million on lobbying during the first six months of 2015, according to federal disclosures.

Politico itself may have gotten SKDKnickerbocker’s message. As flagged by The Federalist, the outlet sent a tweet of its scoop at around noon on Tuesday noting that the PR firm “circulated a memo” to reporters and news producers. That tweet was later deleted, however. Politico did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

SKDKnickerbocker’s memo mirrors language used by Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards in her numerous attempts to discredit the Center for Medical Progress [CMP, the whistleblower pro-life organization].

“This has been a three-year, well funded by the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement in this country to try to entrap doctors and, of course, highly doctored videos which show absolutely they — doctors repeatedly said, it’s all been edited out, Planned Parenthood does not at all profit from fetal tissue donation, which is an important element of health care research in this country,” Richards said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

The storage and examination processes that CMP used to get this footage are medically necessary. It is necessary medical professionals ensure an abortion is complete so that patients do not get an infection. When tissue is donated for medical research, these steps are also necessary for the donations to be completed. It is also medically necessary that researchers evaluate the laboratory procedures of a medical provider for safety standards and best practices.

Some of the conversations and protocols that occur in medical settings and among professional peers can sound jarring when taken out of context. While this can be difficult to hear or watch, it should not be used as an excuse to defund Planned Parenthood.

CMP gained access to Planned Parenthood facilities under false pretenses and filmed without securing approval from the Planned Parenthood staff being filmed or the patients whose privacy is compromised by this secret videotaping. The material should not be aired.

From "Pelosi urges DOJ probe into group targeting Planned Parenthood" by Sarah Ferris, The Hill 7/23/15

“Let’s have an investigation of those people who were trying to ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy that doesn’t exist,” [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi said Thursday in her first public remarks about Planned Parenthood since the first undercover video surfaced last week.

“Planned Parenthood has said that they have done nothing illegal,” she said. “They do not ever charge, which would be illegal, for fetal tissue. They have only defrayed the cost of mailing that to someone, which is not breaking the law.”

Her remarks come one day after White House press secretary Josh Earnest also defended the women’s health provider.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday that she [as the Department of Justice] would review “all information” available before deciding to launch a full investigation.

From "Health chief defends Planned Parenthood amid calls to defund" by Peter Sullivan, The Hill 7/28/15

President Obama’s top healthcare official [Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell] defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood at a hearing on Tuesday as Republicans zeroed in on cutting off its money.

“What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms and cancer prevention screenings,” Burwell told the House Education and the Workforce Committee.

Burwell resisted those calls [from Congress for an investigation], deferring to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

She said that she had not seen the undercover videos but had read about them.

From "Third graphic Planned Parenthood video released" by Jennifer Haberkorn, Politico 7/28/15

A new undercover video released by opponents of Planned Parenthood on Tuesday includes graphic depictions of a technician sorting through the tissue collected after an abortion.

The latest tape also includes footage of a physician in a laboratory talking with an actor posing as a purchaser of tissue samples. “I think the per-item [pricing] works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” she said. The group that made the videos, which calls itself the Center for Medical Progress, identified the physician as Dr. Savita Ginde, who is vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver.

The video, the third released by the Center for Medical Progress, includes an interview with a woman who says she used to work at Stem Express, in a Planned Parenthood clinic. “I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” Holly O’Donnell, the former procurement technician, said in the video.

Republican lawmakers have called on HHS and the Justice Department to investigate whether Planned Parenthood has broken federal laws preventing the group from profiting on fetal tissue donation.

From "Anti-abortion activists rally across US as third video targets Planned Parenthood" by Lauren Gambino, UK Guardian 7/28/15

Coinciding with the newest video’s release, anti-abortion activists staged “women betrayed” rallies in dozens of cities around the country to protest the organization. At the US Capitol in Washington, protesters were joined by Republican presidential contenders Ben Carson and Rand Paul, along with several other anti-abortion politicians.

During the rally, Paul announced that he had secured a commitment in the Senate to vote on a bill that would defund the organization before Congress recesses. Republicans face an uphill battle to secure the 60 of 100 senate votes needed to approve the bill – there are 54 Republicans in the Senate and only a handful of anti-abortion Democrats.

David Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress’s head, has said there are several more videos to be released soon, in addition to between 100 and 200 pages of documents from Planned Parenthood and its “proxies”.

From "Products of Conception Protest Planned Parenthood in 65 Cities Across U.S." by Samuel Smith, Christian Post Reporter 7/29/15

. . . the Washington, D.C. protest, which was organized by the Students for Life of America, [included] presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Cruz told the crowd that the recent videos display enough evidence to suggest that Planned Parenthood officials have violated federal law and that the Department of Justice should conduct a criminal investigation into the matter.

Carson argued that the recent videos are another sign that the American society is becoming a more "pro-death" and "evil" society. But with the emergence of the videos, Carson said that the opportunity has arisen for moral individuals to recreate a pro-life culture.

Although Cruz and many other Congress members have called on Attorney General Loretta Lynch to authorize the Department of Justice to conduct a full investigation into Planned Parenthood's organ compensation practices, Cruz implied that such an investigation wouldn't happen because of the partisanship of Obama's Justice Department.

Gay Agenda Destroys Everything it Contacts

Let's review the effects of the Gay Agenda:  sharp rise in STDs (not only HIV/AIDS) mostly associated with anal sex; exploding rates of transgender delusion (even among children) resulting in more suicides; lower marriage rates and kids raised without their mother or father; the demise of (gay-affirming) mainline church denominations; weakening of the once-strongest force for good in the world (U.S. military); public education transformed to indoctrination and social experimentation; demise of the Girl Scouts (after lesbian leaders took over) . . .

and now, the end of the Boy Scouts of America.

-- From "Boy Scouts OK gay leaders; Mormon church may quit" by Erik Eckholm, The New York Times 7/28/15

The Boy Scouts of America on Monday ended its nationwide ban on openly gay adult leaders. But despite a compromise allowing conservative church-sponsored units to pick their own volunteer leaders, the Mormon church, the country’s largest sponsor of Scout units, said it might leave the organization.

To avoid the wholesale defection of conservative religious groups, the Boy Scouts said church-based local units would remain free to exclude gay adults from voluntary leadership roles like scoutmasters and Cub Scout den and pack leaders.

Mormons use the Boy Scouts as their main nonreligious activity for boys, and the Cub Scout and Boy Scout units they sponsor accounted for 17 percent of all youths in Scouting in 2013, the last year for which data have been published.

Under the Boy Scout policy adopted Monday, discrimination based on sexual orientation will also be barred in all Boy Scout offices and for all paid jobs — a step that could head off looming lawsuits in New York, Colorado and other states that prohibit such discrimination in employment.

From "Are lawsuits ahead for church-based Boy Scout troops?" by Adelle M. Banks, Religion News Service (Washington Post) 7/27/15


. . . Scout officials say religious groups — which make up some 70 percent of chartered organizations — would still have the option to exclude gays even [with the new policy as] adopted.

“What they’re not taking into account is the new frontier that we’re on, where judges are being social change agents,” said John Stemberger, chairman of Trail Life USA, which bills itself as a Christian alternative to the Boy Scouts.

Trail Life issued its own eight-page legal memo, written by a former BSA lawyer who is now Trail Life’s general counsel.

“The church-chartered troop will likely be sued the moment it tries to revoke the membership of the homosexual member who wears his uniform to the Gay Pride Parade, revokes or denies membership to an adult who publicly gets married to someone of the same sex, or denies membership to the girl who believes she is actually a male,” the Trail Life memo reads.

From "Why Boy Scouts stance on gay leaders leaves it in limbo" by Amanda Paulson, Staff Writer, Christian Science Monitor 7/27/15

“You’ve got a highly divided organization,” says Richard Ellis, a political science professor at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., and the author of “Judging the Boy Scouts of America.” “Now it’s not clear that even this solution, which is an attempt to get the [gay rights] issue out of the way, can do it, because nobody is happy with it.”

. . . Some 70 percent of Boy Scout troops are now run by faith-based groups. By the time the BSA considered changing its ban on gay Scout leaders in 2013, it polled its membership and got incredible pushback, Ellis says. Nearly all the councils in the Northeast wanted the anti-gay policy changed, while 80 percent of the Southern councils wanted it to stay the same. The organization worried about an exodus of members. In the end, it decided to go with lifting the ban on gay youths, but not gay adults.

A BSA decision to lift the ban on gay adults but still leave hiring decisions to the discretion of local religious-based organizations affiliated with troops might have seemed progressive if the Scouts had taken that stance 25 years ago, when many first urged it. But coming in 2015, it now seems to critics like too little, too late – a decision that will still allow for discrimination on religious grounds.

“Our position has been and remains clear – we continue to urge the Boy Scouts of America to embrace full LGBT inclusion, without exception,” says Liz Halloran, a spokeswoman for the Human Rights Campaign, which fights for gay rights, via an e-mail.

From "LDS Church relationship with Boy Scouts in doubt, may create new international program" by Ben Lockhart, Deseret News 7/27/15

"The church has always welcomed all boys to its Scouting units regardless of sexual orientation," church spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a prepared statement. "However, the admission of openly gay leaders is inconsistent with the doctrines of the church and what have traditionally been the values of the Boy Scouts of America.”

Hawkins also confirmed the church is considering the possibility of creating an international program similar to Scouting and also made for young men ages 12 to 18.

"As a global organization with members in 170 countries, the church has long been evaluating the limitations that fully one-half of its youth face where Scouting is not available," he said. "Those worldwide needs combined with this vote by the BSA National Executive Board will be carefully reviewed by the leaders of the church in the weeks ahead."

The Catholic Church, another large charter organization with the Boy Scouts, did not offer a formal response to the vote Monday.
