Ultrasound of Unborn Child Must be Made Available to Women Seeking Abortion: Nebraska Legislature

By Alex Bush,

In an overwhelming vote of 40-5 the Nebraska Legislature has passed a bill, introduced by Senator Tony Fulton, that requires abortionists to make an ultrasound of the unborn child available to a woman seeking an abortion if she requests it.

Impact of Same-Sex Marriage in Massachusetts

"Holy cow, the sky hasn't fallen."

That assessment of five years of same-sex marriage came from Jennifer Chrisler, who advocates for gay and lesbian parents as head of the Boston-based Family Equality Council. It's a common refrain from many like-minded activists...

Gay Activists frequently try to use the example of Massachusetts to prove that legalizing same-sex marriage does no harm. They try to push an image of tolerance as if no one in the state opposes it anymore because they've seen how good it is.

What they don't want you to know is that the court's ruling on gay "marriage" has negatively impacted almost every sector of life: education, public health, business, and family life.

This article, written last fall, summarizes many of the consequences that have occurred since that ruling five years ago.

This is about putting the legal stamp of approval on homosexuality and imposing it with force throughout the various social and political institutions of a society that would never accept it otherwise. To the rest of America: You've been forewarned."

Update: Opine Editorials wrote a post about this same article. You can read the post here as well as dozens of comments in which Opine already addressed concerns. No point in me saying what has already been said.
