The Transgender Tide Is Turning

The time has come for an intense but mutually respectful societal conversation that focuses not only on the causes of transgenderism and the potential benefits of transitioning such people, but also the many risks and alternatives that can care compassionately for suffering people while maintaining cultural equilibrium. Our future thriving requires nothing less. Read More ›

Religious Freedom: Biden Policy Not Where Administration’s Mouth Is

Until President Biden protects the right to act in the public square here at home consistently with one’s religious beliefs, his administration’s support for International Religious Freedom Day has to be judged so much hot air. Read More ›

U.K. Transgender Clinic to Close after Damning Report: ‘Not Safe’ for Children

As the Biden administration continues to try to use its regulatory powers to force a “gender-affirming” approach to children who question their sex, in other countries the rubber-stamping of a gender-dysphoric child’s belief and the prescribing of puberty-blocking drugs are under serious reconsideration. The U.K., Sweden, Finland, and France — not exactly Bible Belt countries — are all pulling back from the rush to transition children. Now, in the U.K., the Tavistock Gender Clinic — run by the National Health Service — is being shut down because it is not safe for children. From the Daily Mail story: The NHS‘s controversial child transgender clinic will shut its doors after a damning report found it was ‘not safe’ for children. The gender identity service at Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Read More ›

Biden Administration’s Plan to Destroy Medical Conscience is Un-American

If news reports are right, the Biden administration intends to force doctors and nurses to participate in abortions—even when it violates their religious beliefs. It plans to force Catholic hospitals to violate Church teachings by requiring them to provide sterilization and gender transition procedures, even on children. Read More ›

Biden Administration’s Policies Push Puberty Blocking, Transition Surgeries for Transgender Children

In acts of naked cultural imperialism, the Biden administration has launched propaganda, regulatory, and, soon, litigation campaigns aimed at requiring that children have unfettered access to gender transition interventions. Read More ›

Biden Administration’s ‘Free Crack Pipe’ Scheme Hurts the Homeless and Harms Society

President Joe Biden should change his name to “President Woke.” In the newest example of his administration’s hard-left governing philosophy, they planned to offer nonprofit organizations federal grants to give drug paraphernalia to addicts, an idea that goes under the name of “harm reduction.” Read More ›

Defending Catholic Healthcare

The threats against religious freedom in the United States have become so acute that five major Catholic organizations have formed the Catholic Health Care Leadership Alliance (CHCLA), a nonprofit coalition dedicated to defending the right of Catholic hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutions—as well as Catholic doctors, nurses, and pharmacists—to provide care and treatment in accordance with the moral precepts of the Catholic Church.

We Need an ‘Operation Warp Speed’ for At-Home COVID Tests

So, how about an Operation Warp Speed to manufacture and widely distribute COVID tests? That’s less clickbaity and base-engaging than the fight over vaccines, but think of the good that would do for the country. Read More ›

The Case Against Naming Ezekiel Emanuel to Lead the FDA

If you think Dr. Anthony Fauci is a controversial figure in the fight against COVID-19, you may not have seen anything yet. Politico—the Democrats’ favorite publication for leaking their future plans—just reported that President Joe Biden is seriously considering nominating bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel to lead the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The US is Beginning to Look Like China

President Joe Biden recently said that the world is witnessing a contest between “autocracy and democracy.” He’s right. But there is more irony in that statement than Biden may understand. We are certainly not a dictatorship like China, but to paraphrase the famous maxim of the cartoon character Pogo, “We have met the enemy and he is becoming us.” Read More ›
