Federal court rescues another faith-based adoption agency from Democratic attacks

An appeals court in New York recently handed down an emergency ruling that will keep the doors of a faith-based adoption agency open a little longer.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit issued an emergency order that stopped state officials from trying to shut down New Hope Family Services because it has a religious worldview and carries that worldview over into its policies regarding adoption placements and same-sex parents. This is just one in a series of similar cases nationwide, where local Democratic officials are using the government to purposely target faith-based adoption agencies for perceived “discrimination.”
Even though there are dozens of adoption agencies in New York, the New York State Office of Children and Family Services specifically targeted New Hope because it requires adopting families to consist of a married man and woman. The 2nd Circuit’s decision ensures that the agency can continue to work with families to place children in their homes, at least for now.

Most Americans oppose transgender athletes in women’s sports, poll finds

Transgender athletes have drawn headlines in recent years for their victories in women’s sports, but most Americans aren’t fans. A Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday found that 51% of U.S. adults surveyed opposed allowing athletes compete on the basis of their gender identity, including biological males who participate in women’s and girls’ sports.

Only 29% supported “allowing transgender students to participate on the sports teams of the gender they identify with,” while 20% were undecided, the survey said.

The results of the poll, taken Oct. 31-Nov. 2, were virtually identical to a Rasmussen survey released in June, which found only 28% favored allowing transgender students “to participate on the sports team of the gender they identify with,” while 54% were opposed.

Sorry, Justice Ginsberg, but some women having abortions think they are mothers

In May this year the US Supreme Court ruled on two state laws limiting abortion; majorities upheld one law concerning the disposal of the remains of aborted foetuses, and rejected another preventing a woman having an abortion on eugenic grounds (sex, race or disability). In the process Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a staunch upholder of abortion rights, took umbrage at Justice Clarence Thomas’s use of the word “mother” to describe a woman getting an abortion.
