Here’s The Opioid Crisis the News Isn’t Talking About

We are members of Not Dead Yet, a national grassroots disability rights organization, and some of us are living with chronic pain ourselves. Based on our knowledge of the disability community through personal experience and through our work, we have not seen disabled people with chronic pain experiencing opioid use disorder. What we are seeing is many disabled people who are suffering due to the lack of access to opioid medication[2]  previously available as part of comprehensive strategies and approaches to address chronic pain. They are experiencing an increase in chronic pain and other symptoms associated with that pain. Disabled people and ...

“Children’s Rights” Consultant for Pro-Abortion UN Agency Sexually Assaulted Boy for Years

(C-Fam) Longtime UN consultant for children’s rights Peter Newell was convicted of sexually assaulting and sodomizing a child over the course of three years beginning in 1965. He was jailed last week and is serving a six-year sentence after pleading guilty. Just as UNICEF is trying to contain the damage, its deputy executive director, Justin Forsyth, resigned yesterday when his history of sexual harassment came to light. The allegations were lodged during his previous role as chairman of the charity Save the Children UK. Forsyth previously worked at Oxfam for 15 years, the scandal-plagued charity which was caught opening brothels for aid workers in ...

Here’s What’s Wrong with Saying “Fetus”

Discrimination? Microaggression? Propaganda? These are common labels against pro-lifers. Anyone arguing for the rights of the unborn can expect to be characterized as enemies of women, of liberty, and of human rights. Sometimes we can learn from these accusations and pick better terms or listen with more charity. Other times, these labels just don’t fit. Or worse, they are baseless slander. I would like to suggest that the abortion debate is riddled with a problematic term: “fetus.” At best, this term is a harmless shorthand way to refer to a “human fetus,” “fetal human,” or the “child-in-utero,” and other non-discriminatory terms. ...

In reality, Mary Lou Greenberg, who heads up the abortion escort program at Choices Women’s Medical Center in Jamaica, New York, testified on Wednesday, February 21, that her accusations against the life advocates on trial were “borrowed” from another escort, whose words were used to describe actions by different people at an entirely different clinic. “Greenburg also admitted that when a woman is leaving the clinic in the company of sidewalk counselors, she will ...
