Laurel Duggan on January 25, 2023A top Department of Justice (DOJ) official who has criticized pregnancy resource centers, which she called “fake clinics,” is responsible for overseeing the prosecution of two individuals indicted for attacking pregnancy resource centers, according to the DOJ. “Make no mistake, today’s decision at the #SCOTUS striking down a CA disclosure requirement for crisis pregnancy centers is part of a coordinated strategy to tear down #RoevWade. Her complaint echoes a popular sentiment among abortion supporters: that pregnancy centers offering medical services and material resources rather than abortions are actually deceptive and predatory. Freestone and Smith-Stewart could each face up to a maximum of 12 years in prison, three years of supervised release and fines of up to $350,000, according to the DOJ. The DOJ and its Civil Rights Division did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.
Paula White-Cain on January 25, 2023Last week, tens of thousands of passionate pro-life advocates joined together for the 2023 March for Life. In the days following the Dobbs ruling, some on the radical left violently attacked churches and pregnancy centers across the nation, and condemnations from the left were few and far between. These pregnancy centers provide pregnant mothers with counseling services, free ultrasounds and other valuable resources, including connections to adoption services. America should promote life and support those who seek to preserve it. Paula White-Cain is Chair of the Center for American Values at America First Policy Institute.2 days ago Shore News Network
After midnight it shouldn’t be heavy anymore,” said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center. But with more than two months to go in the rainy season, officials are urging Californians to continue conserving water. Moreover, the atmospheric rivers largely failed to reach the Colorado River basin, a critical source of southern California’s water. The ninth consecutive atmospheric river fizzled out on Monday, its remnants soaking the southernmost part of the state, Arizona and northern Mexico, Roth said. California can otherwise expect dry conditions for the remainder of January, state officials said.11 days ago Shore News Network

Bronson Winslow on January 10, 2023Illinois passed legislation Tuesday that will enact a statewide ban on so-called “assault weapons” and place limits on magazine capacities.

Pritzker signed the legislation late Tuesday night after the Illinois House of Representatives voted on revisions passed by the state Senate.

Alexa Schwerha on January 27, 2023The United States Department of Education (DOE) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) opened an investigation Wednesday into the University of Kansas (KU) School of Medicine and the KU Medical Center after it received a complaint alleging it operates a racially discriminatory scholarship, medical watchdog group Do No Harm reported. The scholarship is available to students who qualify as an “underrepresented” race which includes “Native American, Black or African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Cambodian, Laotian, or Vietnamese,” its website reads. Perry said the program is “representative of the widespread discrimination taking place at almost every US medical school on the basis of race, color, and/or national origin,” Do No Harm reported. “By emphasizing racial diversity over merit and academic ability for admission to the racially discriminatory Urban Scholars Program for Students Underrepresented in Medicine, KU School of Medicine is compromising its fundamental academic responsibilities to pursue instead an ideologically driven diversity agenda,” he said. Morgan told the DCNF the medical watchdog expects the “Office for Civil Rights will remedy this instance of illegal racial discrimination at KU.”The DOE and the KU School of Medicine did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.17 hours ago Shore News Network
Expect heavy rain and some gusty winds, but nothing like last November, says Environment Canada. Environment Canada issued a special weather statement Friday morning as an atmospheric river is expected to bring “heavy rainfall and strong winds” to British Columbia’s south coast and Vancouver Island over the weekend. “The heaviest hit areas are looking to be the west coast of Vancouver Island, Howe Sound and North Vancouver,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau. Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth later confirmed representatives with Environment Canada told him the system would be ready by early January 2022.
