Update: An appellate court overturned the decision!
The easiest way to see what values and policies the far-left in the United States will adopt in the future, just watch what the far-left in European nations do. As Europe goes, American progressives follow. That’s why the latest story of judicial overreach, disregarded human rights, and abortion-as-a-solution coming from the UK is so disconcerting.
A British judge has ordered a 22-week-pregnant woman to abort her child, citing the woman’s mental capacity as evidence she is unfit to provide financial support or make proper medical decisions. The woman, whose name is being withheld, has the mental capacity of a 6-8 year old, according to a report by the NY Times.
Here are some pertinent facts:
- The woman has indicated she wants to have the child
- The woman’s mother has indicated she will take care of the child
- The judge is making the decision because she feels the woman would suffer trauma if the baby were taken away in the future
This is how the left dehumanizing preborn babies. They take a case in which the “best interests” of a woman with a learning disability supersede all other considerations. Her life is not in danger. She has the support of her mother, who is a lawyer, former social worker, and former midwife. The family wants to care for this child, but the potential hurt feelings of the mother in a hypothetical future situation in which the child must be taken away for some strange reason is all the judge is considering.
The judge is ordering the end of a life against the wishes of the family because of a hypothetical.
Forcing adoption, while a violation against the family, would be a solution that solves the made-up problems the judge has imposed to justify killing the child, but that isn’t even a consideration.
When governments can not only allow but decree when a child should be aborted, we should have zero doubt we’ve entered a very dangerous time in human history. It’s medieval, archaic thinking camouflaged by modern progressive sensibilities.
If progressives were truly compassionate, they’d be calling for the baby and the mother to be cared for instead of end one’s life and controlling the other’s.
“I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the state to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn’t want it is an immense intrusion.” – Judge Nathalie Lieven
Human rights are clearly being violated by this judge. The mother wants to have the baby. The mother’s mother wants to help care for the baby. The judge believes adoption would be too traumatic. Everything about this is infuriating.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
