    Virginia Governor’s Answer on Late-Term Abortion Hints at Support for Infanticide

    Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam couldn’t precisely answer whether he supports abortion until birth and suggested an infant could be born and then the mother and doctor could discuss what should happen next, in a Wednesday morning interview.

The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said in a WTOP interview.

    New York Passes Bill on Roe v. Wade Anniversary Casting Abortion as a Woman’s Right

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Tuesday night that expands abortion access and codifies a woman’s right to abort under state law.

    Cuomo, a Democrat, signed the Reproductive Health Act on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, making good on his promise to add abortion protections to the state constitution, according to The New York Post.

    Roe v. Wade gave women the constitutional right to an abortion under the 14th Amendment on Jan. 22, 1973. The ruling extended the right to abort up to the point of fetal “viability,” a slippery term that continues to foster debate as neonatal care advances. READ MORE...

    Christian Teacher Fired for Refusing to Use Transgender Student’s New Pronouns

    A Virginia high school teacher was sacked Thursday for allegedly misgendering a student, marking the first time in the state that an educator has lost a job for using biological pronouns to refer to a student.

    The West Point School Board voted unanimously 5-0 to fire Peter Vlaming who teaches French at the school, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

    Vlaming, 47, was charged with discrimination after failing to use male pronouns to address a biologically female student. Vlaming did not intentionally misgender the student, but avoided using any pronouns to address or talk about the student in order to accord with his Christian faith, the Times-Dispatch reported.

    More Universities Adopt ‘Anti-Oppression Guide’

    Simmons College published an anti-oppression guide in March to help students and community members combat their tendencies to be racist, sexist, islamophobic, and politically incorrect, and now other colleges and universities are adopting the guide.

    Beloit College and Lesley University have adopted the “Anti-Oppression Guide,” which is “intended to provide some general information about anti-oppression, diversity, and inclusion,” the guide’s introduction reads.

    The guide examines a number of topics containing elements that fall under the umbrella of oppression, which it identifies as the combination of power and prejudice. The resource points to anti-transgender sentiment, or “Transmisia,” as one hierarchy of oppression and defines it as a “systemized discrimination or antagonism directed against transgender/nonbinary/genderqueer/agender persons.” READ MORE...

    Illinois State-Funded Abortions Increase Nearly 300% in 2018

    Taxpayers in Illinois paid for almost quadruple the number of abortions in the first six months of 2018 than they did in 2017 following a bill mandating the state pay for abortions.

    There were only 84 abortions between January and June 2017, but that number skyrocketed to 314 in 2018, according to records from the Illinois Department of Health and Family Services, the Illinois News Network reported Monday.

The law mandates the state provide abortion coverage for Illinois residents and state employees via Medicaid. The state estimates it costs $1.8 million annually to pay for abortion coverage. The law took effect Jan. 1. READ MORE...
