21 Things That Caught My Eye Today: Seminarians Attacked in Nigeria; Planned Parenthood Deception; & More

1 4 1

1. Vatican News: Bandits attack Seminary in Kaduna, abduct 3 seminarians

Six seminarians sustained various degrees of injuries during the attack and they were accompanied by a dispatch of soldiers to a hospital in Kafanchan where they were treated and discharged after being confirmed to be stable.

2. Leigh Fitzpatrick Snead: Planned Parenthood’s highly deceptive Supreme Court brief

In one Orwellian passage after another, the brief talks about how abortion “saves lives.” It features anecdotes of women whose pregnancies were life-threatening even though the Mississippi law at issue in Dobbs includes a “medical emergency exception.”

Almost anything, they argue, would be better than placing them with a family of another race.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, the idea that the child-welfare system is racist has taken hold, and legislators are now trying to act on it.

As a condition of covering the highly sensitive Family Court proceedings, the Times Union agreed not to use Charlie’s last name in this article or the names of any other children.
