Middle School Teacher Under Investigation for Showing Pro-Life Video to Students

The cognitive dissonance among parents who objected to the video is stunning.

If you are pro-life and know anything about the kind of sex ed that’s going on in California’s schools, this story should enrage you. The double-standards, denial, and hypocrisy are beyond comprehension.

A seventh-grade teacher at the Sacramento City Unified School District is under investigation by the school board for showing a pro-life video to her students because they feel that it was inappropriate for their age group.

It would be perfectly legal in California, of course, for some seventh-grade girls to receive abortions. Seventh-graders also learn basic anatomy and biology, right?

So it remains inconceivable that a video explaining what the abortion procedure does is inappropriate for students of this age.

That is, of course, unless you believe abortion is wrong. Then, perhaps, because these videos depict graphic images of a murder, one would have a leg to stand on.

The Daily Wire reports:

The pro-life video in question features a former abortionist turned pro-lifer named Dr. Anthony Levatino. Levatino, in collaboration with pro-life group Live Action, medically describes what an abortionist does during first and second trimester abortions in at least two different videos (both posted below), though it’s unclear which one was allegedly shown to the middle schoolers.

The former abortionist performed hundreds of abortions before his adopted daughter was tragically killed outside their home by car. “I looked at the remains of a pre-born child whose life I had ended, and all I could see was someone’s son or daughter,” Levatino explained of his conversion.

The cognitive dissonance among parents who objected to the video is stunning.

One anonymous teacher told the Sacramento Bee, “We all know that the subject of abortion is sensitive, complex and controversial, and I personally don’t think it belongs as a topic to go into in any depth in a seventh-grade class.” Abortion “requires a thoughtful, nuanced discussion,” she added.

What’s nuanced and complex about whether or not abortion dismembers a human baby in the womb?

Lila Rose, one of the most prominent pro-life activists in the country, who began her organization, Live Action, when she herself was just in high school, explains that it is imperative for young people to understand what abortion is:

“Tens of thousands of teen girls have abortions every year in America, and they deserve the information about fetal development, what happens during an abortion procedure, and its risks,” explained Rose. “How can students understand the biological, moral, and ethical aspects of abortion without knowing what the abortion procedure entails for both the developing child and mother?”

Rose continued: “These videos were designed to be teacher aids and are medically accurate, created in consultation with a group of doctors and experts, and have been viewed online nearly 100 million times. The abortion procedure series are medical animations, not graphic footage, and accurately depict the most prevalent abortion procedures in a format suitable for teens.”

The only thing unpleasant about these videos below is that they expose the undeniable truth of what the abortion procedure is. I agree that no child should have to watch them–because it isn’t something that should be happening legally in our country at all. It’s not something those young people should ever have to think about.

But as long as the young women in that classroom can walk into an abortion clinic and pay for the procedure without so much as a guardian to accompany them, it is not only appropriate for them to know what the procedure entails, it is vital.

MARK MEADOWS: Trump Tested Positive for COVID Ahead of Debate with Biden

A negative test soon followed.

Published

on

Then-President Trump’s bout with COVID-19 was one of the more harrowing moments of his time in the Oval Office, and a new memoir by Mark Meadows has added a new twist to the tale.

The entire episode had the nation on the edge of its seat, concerned that the sitting President, (a septuagenarian considered to be “high risk”), may fall quite ill from the virus.  Of course, being the leader of the free world has its benefits, and Donald Trump received state-of-the-art care during his brief stint in the hospital – even going so far as to take a lap around the medical center to wave to his supporters.

But now, The Don’s former chief of staff has revealed that the former Commander in Chief actually tested positive for the virus before a debate with Joe Biden – with a negative result to follow.

Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president’s fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book.

Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.”

Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.

Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.

Trump openly lauded the work of his doctors, as well as a therapeutic treatment from Regeneron, as the reason for his speedy recovery.

FedEx Driver Under Investigation After Dumping Hundreds of Packages into Ravine

As if the rest of the supply chain wasn’t already damaged enough.

Published

As the holiday season approaches, the strain on our network of mail couriers continues to ramp up, and the stress appears to have been too much for at least one delivery driver.

For many, the headaches have already begun:  Missing packages, erroneous deliveries, and unbelievable delays.  But for hundreds of folks in Alabama, something even worse has occurred.

Authorities investigating the discovery of hundreds of FedEx packages in an Alabama ravine have questioned the driver they think is responsible — and believe the driver dumped packages there at least six times, a sheriff said Tuesday.

The investigation began November 24, when sheriff’s deputies in northern Alabama’s Blount County found 300 to 400 packages in a ravine on private property, the county sheriff’s department said.

FedEx warned that the situation could take some time to sort out.

“This will not be an easy or fast case to close. … I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case,” Moon’s post reads. FedEx sent workers and trucks to the ravine last week to begin recovering and distributing the packages. The property is about 40 miles outside Birmingham.
The questioned driver “is no longer providing service on behalf of FedEx Ground,” FedEx said Tuesday in a prepared statement.
No charges have yet been filed in the case, and the suspected driver has not been arrested.
