            "It does not ban female athletes or girls from participating in men’s or boys’ sports."

           If this becomes a problem, let me know. For instance, when women gymnasts can't make the grade against other women gymnasts, so they declare themselves men so as to compete against the boys instead.

Kansas Senate Overrides Democrat Governor’s Veto on Transgender Sports Ban Bill

The Kansas Senate on Monday voted to override Gov. Laura Kelly’s veto on The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, a bill that would ban biological male athletes from competing in women’s school sports across the state. Also known as SB 160, the legislation “requires interscholastic, intercollegiate, intramural, or club athletic teams or sports that are sponsored by public educational institutions” to ban male students from joining teams or sports “designated for females.” It does not ban female athletes or girls from participating in men’s or boys’ sports.

The bill was introduced by Republicans in February 2021 and vetoed by Kelly on April 15. However, the Senate voted 28–10 on Monday to override the governor’s veto, and it now heads to the House for lawmakers to vote to sustain or override the veto. Republican sponsors of the bill say it is needed to create fairness and protect the integrity of female sports and opportunities for girls to gain college athletic scholarships. If the bill is violated, it allows any student deprived of an athletic opportunity or who suffers direct or indirect harm to file a civil suit and seek relief in the form of monetary damages.

“Men should not be competing in women’s sports,” Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said after the veto earlier this month. “Governor Kelly today vetoed (for the second time) a bill to implement that commonsense principle. I would have signed the bill into law.” But critics, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas, say the legislation is prejudiced and harmful and targets trans children in the state. ~~~~~~~ At least 15 states have enacted similar bills on transgender athletes, which has prompted lawsuits in Tennessee and Florida.

         "Unfortunately, our business and financial sectors have developed in ways that make it effectively impossible for those whose money is actually invested in Disney to hold the company’s leadership accountable.."

         I do not buy this. There has to be a way to sue if investors take a major loss because of horrendous decisions by their board of directors, where they should easily have known better...or to hold the corporation itself liable.

Florida Must Hold Disney Accountable Because Nobody Else Can

Mickey needs new management. Disney stumbled into the debate about Florida’s parental rights bill, and then kept yapping after losing that fight. Various Disney leaders were even caught on video boasting of “adding queerness” and “queer stories” to as much Disney content as possible.

Florida Republicans have responded by passing a bill that threatens to remove some of Disney’s special privileges in the state. Although the bill leaves some time to negotiate before it takes effect, it is still a significant strike against Disney. This was, as John Daniel Davidson recently argued in The Federalist, the right response: Republicans must push back against woke corporatism and capital...in almost every instance, woke corporations are run by managers who do not own more than a tiny fraction of the companies they direct. Yet they nonetheless view the property they have in trust as their own, to be used for their personal political and ideological goals.

The left has learned that turning a corporation woke doesn’t require buying it. All it takes is a few key executives, some vocal employees, and a bit of social media pressure. That has been enough to push company after company into BLM-supporting, pride-flag-waving, diversity-consultant hiring wokeness. ~~~~~~~

Disney Picked This Fight - Disney’s leaders picked a fight with a popular and competent Republican governor who had enormous leverage over them, at a time when Republican voters were clamoring for someone to stand up to woke corporations. And Disney did so on an issue where the public, even Democrats, was with DeSantis and against Disney. ~~~~~~~ Something is very wrong in Mickey’s house. Unfortunately, our business and financial sectors have developed in ways that make it effectively impossible for those whose money is actually invested in Disney to hold the company’s leadership accountable.

Duty to Protect Kids - Nonetheless, conservatives have a duty to preserve children’s innocence and to protect them from the confusion of gender ideology — confusion that too often ends in chemical and surgical mutilation. Fulfilling this obligation now requires conservatives to distinguish between genuine rights of property and conscience and those falsely claimed by the managerial oligarchy. ~~~~~~~ The people running Disney have turned against the ordinary families whose support built the company — and whose investments and retirement accounts provide the money for the financial firms that hold the big stakes in Disney. If Disney’s leaders no longer love regular people, then it is time to make them fear us.

        "While those seeking puberty blockers or surgical procedures are referred elsewhere, Planned Parenthood is offering access to cross-sex hormones, promoting gender ideology in sex ed programs, and establishing “well-being centers” in local high schools."

Planned Parenthood Profits Big From Getting Kids Hooked On Transgender Hormones Through The School-To-Clinic Pipeline

Long the nation’s chief abortion provider, Planned Parenthood has branched out. Its latest endeavor? Sterilizing America’s youth. Planned Parenthood has quietly been in the gender transition business since at least  2017. Today, more than a third of its offices — 239 clinics in more than 40 states — provide transgender services. And it’s not stopping there.

While those seeking puberty blockers or surgical procedures are referred elsewhere, Planned Parenthood is offering access to cross-sex hormones, promoting gender ideology in sex ed programs, and establishing “well-being centers” in local high schools. The organization is looking to cash in on gender transition for years to come.

Easy Access - Just how readily does Planned Parenthood provide the gender-confused with cross-sex hormones? Consider the case of detransitioner Helena Kirschner. She received testosterone during her first visit — without blood work or a mental health referral. Sadly, Kirschner is not the exception. Offices guarantee that patients can receive hormones without an evaluation of their mental health. They also promise that, in most cases, patients can expect same-day prescriptions.

Already thousands of kids are getting hormones like candy. Three California regional offices of Planned Parenthood recorded almost 4,000 gender-related visits from July 2019 to June 2021. In one California region, more than 750 cycles of hormones were prescribed in a year. These numbers are not representative for California; other Planned Parenthood offices in the state don’t even bother reporting these services. ~~~~~~~ We know that 88 to 98 percent of gender dysphoric kids will reconcile with their biological sex if allowed to go through puberty “untreated.” Moreover, those who do transition are estimated to be 19 times more likely to commit suicide than their peers.

Comprehensive Sex-Ed - Even before Planned Parenthood helps minors transition, it teaches them to desire it. Across the country, schools hire Planned Parenthood or its affiliates to lead sex ed. And its reach is not insignificant. Nationally, 1.2 million students receive Planned Parenthood’s affiliate sex ed programming each year, according to the organization’s last annual report. While curriculum requirements vary by state, these programs promote everything from abortion and the morning-after pill to gender fluidity and transition. By indoctrinating youth, the abortion giant creates the demand it needs to profit from gender services. ~~~~~~~

Ultimately, Planned Parenthood’s rapid expansion of services should raise alarm. Planned Parenthood is no longer a danger just to the pregnant and the unborn, but to every teen as well. ~~~~~~~ In Congress, members must remain vigilant against the Equality Act, which would make the school-to-surgery pipeline a permanent fixture of American society. Lawmakers should also consider Hyde-like riders to ensure the Biden administration can’t redirect federal dollars to help Planned Parenthood sterilize our kids.

             Suicide is considered to be among the worst kinds of murder: self-murder. This is because it is not only murder, but it is a denial that a person's life is owned by God, given and taken when God deems the time is correct. It is a usurpation of God's authority, and does not go down well when one faces judgment. Perhaps the suffering at the end of life had a Godly purpose. Perhaps it caused certain sins of the individual to be forgiven. Perhaps it was giving others a chance to earn Godly merit by helping the bereaved. This will also not go down well with the people who created, or even supported this legislation.

Assisted Suicide is Now Available in Vermont after a Zoom Call with Dr. Death

If you qualify as terminally ill (a definition that can change in a heartbeat – life is a terminal condition), Vermont has made it easier to obtain physician-assisted suicide drugs!

S.74  “proposes to eliminate a requirement in Vermont’s patient choice at end of life laws that both oral requests required of the patient with a terminal condition for medication to be self-administered to hasten the patient’s death must have been made in the physical presence of the physician to whom the patient made the request.”

And so it has – passed by the legislature and signed by Gov. Scott (r), you can now use Zoom or any equivalent form of telemedicine to request drugs to end your life without ever meeting with the doctor prescribing death.

a) A physician shall not be subject to any civil or criminal liability or professional disciplinary action if the physician prescribes to a patient with a terminal condition medication to be self-administered for the purpose of hastening the patient’s death and the physician affirms by documenting in the patient’s medical record that all of the following occurred:

(1) The patient made an oral request to the physician in the physician’s physical presence or by telemedicine, …

            "The dehumanization of preborn children is leading to the dehumanization of born children...While legislation removing medical care rights from abortion survivors is not new, this year alone, legislators in three states, California, Colorado, and Maryland have presented bills with language that would essentially legalize infanticide."

Pro-abortion states now moving directly to infanticide agenda

For years, pro-abortion bioethicists have been promoting after-birth abortion — infanticide — for children with disabilities. In some nations, such as Belgium, infants are already eligible for euthanasia, while some politicians in the United States fight against laws requiring babies who survive abortions to receive medical care. The average American may brush this off as a non-issue and choose to believe such propositions are out of the norm or nothing more than propaganda. But in a seemingly growing trend, pro-abortion legislators now appear to be attempting to legalize infanticide in some states using loopholes and specific language in laws regarding so-called reproductive rights. ~~~~~~~ What pro-abortion bioethicists are saying - In 2012, two medical ethicists argued that doctors should be allowed to end the lives of disabled, or even simply unwanted, newborns based on the false notion that these infants are not “actual persons.” Francesca Minerva and Alberto Guibilini said parents should get a choice to end the lives of their newborns after birth because babies are “morally irrelevant” and have “no moral right to life.” ~~~~~~~ The reasoning behind the push to legalize infanticide is unknown. Perhaps it’s in response to the pro-life push for personhood for undelivered babies, or the guaranteed right to medical care for abortion survivors. It could also be because the federal government has allowed the abortion pill to be prescribed without an in-person appointment, which could lead to countless babies of all gestational ages being born alive following their mother’s attempted at-home abortion. Regardless of the reason, pro-abortion lawmakers have begun adding phrasing to so-called “reproductive rights” bills that allows room for infanticide — whether active or passive. While legislation removing medical care rights from abortion survivors is not new, this year alone, legislators in three states, California, Colorado, and Maryland have presented bills with language that would essentially legalize infanticide.

The legal right of abortion comes in the problem of the bedroom.

Make problem beforehand, not a birth control.

What is this working up to, the upset of the universal and the upset of the old.

May 16, 2022 - CANADA

          "Some Canadian provincial , such as that of British Columbia, ?are even purging from their law books references to both “mother” and “father,” along with all references to a person’s sex." 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada removed gender from name, now goes by ‘BGC’

While much of Canada was in lockdown in the spring of 2021, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canadaclub for kids with an over 100-year history of helping disadvantaged youth, removed “boys” and “girls” from its name “Not every young person identifies as a boy or a girl. So we’ve changed our name to reflect that,” says a video message posted last spring by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, which now goes by the name “BGC Canada.” “At BGC no kid or teen is ever turned away, no matter their backgrounds, no matter their circumstances.”  ~~~~~~~  The adoption of what are termed “trans inclusive” pronouns has been heavily promoted by those in the LGBT movement. This is despite the hard reality of one’s biological sex, as well many people’s religious beliefs which hold that God created “man” and “woman.”  This is also despite the fact that, statistically speaking, only 0.33 percent of Canadians identify as “transgender” or “non-binary.”

           Staying quiet about who you are is not the same thing as changing who you are. Now that you have done the public the service of letting people know exactly who you are, the public do not want anything to do with you anymore, and staying quiet about it will not change that.

From now on, Disney will remain quiet about politics, report says

Disney plans to keep quiet about politics after publicly sparring with Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis over legislation related to LGBT content in education, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“This was shock and awe from the governor,” Republican Florida state Sen. Jeff Brandes, who voted against the Disney bill told the WSJ. “It just shows how big a challenge Disney faced in saying anything at all in the legislative process.”

Republican lawmakers reportedly told Adam Babington, Disney’s top government affairs official in Florida, that the company may be able to salvage their special district if they stepped out of the public fight, according to the WSJ. “Cool it off. Let’s not make a big deal about this,” said Babington, according to the WSJ.

“Waging culture wars against common-sense legislation – on parental rights and child safeguarding – is bad for business, particularly for a company that has built a successful brand over the decades by marketing wholesome entertainment to families,” DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“No corporation could possibly have swayed Governor DeSantis’ dedication to protecting kids and parents’ rights,” Pushaw said. “Disney’s vow to ‘repeal’ HB 1557 and overrule the majority of Floridians, as well as our legitimately elected government, has backfired as expected.”

Disney publicly opposed Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which bans classroom instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation in kindergarten through third grade. The company initially ignored the legislation, which critics and LGBT activists call the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, but CEO Bob Chapek voiced opposition to the bill following a media pressure campaign highlighting Disney’s silence.
