State Farm joins the woke brigade

VERBATIM: The giant insurance company has begun a program that will distribute LGBT children’s books to libraries and community centers across the country. State Farm says it wants to “help diversify bookshelves with a collection of books to help bring clarity and understanding to the national conversation about Being Transgender, Inclusive and Non-Binary.” Hundreds of State Farm agents across the country have been drafted to deliver the books.

The Biden administration is appealing a federal court ruling that blocked the lifting of a pandemic-related asylum policy

VERBATIM:

In a legal setback for President Biden, a federal judge in Louisiana refused to end Title 42 restrictions on migrants seeking asylum on the southern border. The restrictions have been in place since March 20-20 on grounds of preventing the spread of COVID-19. The White House disagrees with the court’s ruling and the Justice Department will appeal. In the meantime, the White House says the policy will continue to be enforced while the legal process plays out. GC, Wash.

Most Americans do not support transgenderism

VERBATIM: A new poll from Summit.org and McLaughlin and Associates finds that 64% of respondents believe that transgenderism is NOT a health human condition. But in another telling statistic — HALF of the people who feel that way are afraid to say anything about it lest they offend someone. Summit president Dr. Jeff Myers says that despite the relentless transgender media campaign “these numbers show plainly that the vast majority of Americans aren’t buying what they’re being sold.” Michael Harrington, SRN News.

Security is being tightened up at pro-life clinics across the country

VERBATIM: Stanton Healthcare has facilities in a number of states and Director Nancy Ferris says “We have reviewed our safety procedures with staff and volunteers and we had our alarm systems tested.” That’s the order of the day following attacks by radical abortion advocates on pro-life clinics and churches in recent days. The mayhem follows the leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion that indicates the justices might be ready to repeal Roe versus Wade. Michael Harrington, SRN News.

Samaritan’s Purse has found a new way to help in Ukraine

VERBATIM: The giant Christian relief agency has done all the obvious things — providing food, clothing, medical supplies and other basic necessities to people fleeing the Russian invasion. But now Samaritan’s Purse is turning its attention specifically to the kids. Organizers are delivering backpacks to Ukraining youngsters, filled with teddy bears and other small toys, crayons, sketch pads — the kind of things that might, just for a few hours — distract a child from what’s going on around him.

The abortion rate is down

The abortion rate is down

VERBATIM: The latest from the Centers for Disease Control shows about 11 out of every 1,000 American women are having an abortion these days. It was 29-per-1000 back in 1980 — the all-time high. Experts say steady work over the last two decades by state legislatures to pass pro-life bills is the primary reason for the decline. Pro-life advocates are hoping the Supreme Court rolls back Roe versus Wade this summer allowing more states to put more laws in place. Michael Harrington, SRN News.

Amazon will pay to help its workers get abortions

VERBATIM: The on-line retail giant says it will reimburse all U.S. employees up to 4,000 dollars each year for travel and lodging expenses associated with getting an abortion. If Roe versus Wade is actually overturned, there will be some parts of the country where getting an abortion will be nearly impossible and traveling out of state will be the only option. A growing number of big companies are vowing to pay to help women end their pregnancies, including Citigroup and Yelp. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
