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

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

Published

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?

Trending: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

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.

Obama Declared 12 ‘National Emergencies,’ Yet Media Did Not Mind At All

The hypocrisy is not only palpable, but despicable.

Published

national emergency

Despite what the media may be telling you, presidents have been declaring “national emergencies” to shift spending to a needed area for decades. In fact, Obama did it 12 times and the media didn’t care at all.

Indeed, ten of the “national emergencies” Obama called are still in effect and funding is being shifted to those declarations to this day.

The first “national emergency” used to shift spending into high gear was declared by Gerald Ford in 1976 and every president since then has used the means to pay for something he wanted addressed.

As left-wing Snopes noted:

In 1976, U.S. President Gerald Ford signed off on the National Emergencies Act (NEA), federal legislation that ended all previous national states of emergency and formalized the process by which the President can declare states of emergencies and undertake special powers during those emergencies.

Every president since — Carter, Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, G.W. Bush, and Obama — also issued their own declarations.

Obama issued 12 of them, and ten are still drawing funds.

According to ABC News, here are the Obama “emergencies” still in effect are:

April 12, 2010: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in Somalia was in respect to threats posed by Somali pirates.

February 25, 2011: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Libya froze the assets of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

July 25, 2011: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Transnational Criminals was in response to the rise in crime by specific organizations: Los Zetas (Mexico), The Brothers’ Circle (former Soviet Union countries), the Yakuza (Japan), and the Camorra (Italy).

May 16, 2012: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen addressed political unrest within the Yemen government.

March 16, 2014: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine was in response to the Russian invasion of Crimea.

April 3, 2014: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Certain Persons With Respect to South Sudan was in response to the ongoing civil war.

May 12, 2014: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in the Central African Republic was in response to violence towards humanitarian aid workers.

March 8, 2015: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Venezuela was in response to human rights violations.

April 1, 2015: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking the Property of Certain Persons Engaging in Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities was in response to Chinese cyber attacks on the U.S.

Nov 23, 2015: The National Emergency With Respect to Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Burundi was declared after a failed coup.

Thus far, Trump has issued only three such declarations, so he’s lagging behind the rest.

So, when the media and the Never Trumpers pretend that Trump’s border declaration is “unprecedented” and “dangerous,” ignore their claims because it’s not a new concept at all.

Like it or not, it has been going on for decades.

BOMBSHELL: Anti-Semitic Dem Represents ‘Terrorist Recruitment Capital’ of U.S. [Report]

Hey, MSM! Check this out…

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district.

A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America.

As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment, given her anti-Semitic leanings.

Check out Fox News’s headline:

From Fox News:

More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.

FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.

[…]

With by far the largest Somali American population in the United States – estimates of up to 100,000 – the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground. Investigators told Fox News that early on, al-Shabab recruiting was almost exclusively word-of-mouth. One family connection to a contact in the terrorist group would be pulled in as a recruit, in a process that was repeated as the ranks of the al-Shabab grew.

Omar blamed the United States of America for a terrorist attack in Africa that left 70 people dead.

200 others were injured.

Imagine if Omar was a Republican.

There would be pandemonium and she’d be called to resign.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar once described acts of terrorism as a reaction to “our involvement in other people’s affairs,” in the wake of the brutal al-Shabab attack on a Kenyan shopping mall in 2013.

Omar made the comments during an obscure local television appearance just weeks after four armed al-Shabab jihadists stormed the Westgate mall in Nairobi in 2013, killing nearly 70 people and wounding 200.

Host Ahmed Tharwat: “When are we gonna decide or realize that terrorism is a reaction? It’s an ideology, it’s a means of things, it’s not an entity, it’s not a place, people. It’s a reaction to a situation.

Omar: “Yes. What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face. Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts.

Omar: “Usually most people want to not look internal and see what their actions that makes another react. For us, it’s always ‘I must have not done anything. Why is it happening to me?’ Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs.

WATCH (start at the 11:35 mark):

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.

LOOK:

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic stereotype:

If not immediately obvious, here’s the problem with her tweet:

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Omar said, a reference to Jewish people and money. A typical antisemitic stereotype.

Omar then retweeted a “hook-nosed” tweet:
