LGBTQ wins in Supreme Court
In a 6-3 ruling issued yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court said an employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender violates Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The court found that “homosexuality and transgender status are inextricably bound up with sex. Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver, said: “The majority opinion departs from the clear language of Title VII and is no less than legislation from the bench. While the case did not include a religious freedom defense, the court expressly stated that religious employers will likely have a valid defense under the first amendment and the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act.”
Planned Parenthood endorses Joe Biden

Pro-life protestors targeted for arrest
A pair of pro-life New Yorkers arrested for sidewalk counseling outside of an abortion facility in alleged violation of state “social distancing guidelines” is calling out the hypocrisy of forbidding safe, peaceful pro-life demonstration while allowing the massive, crowded protests of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. On May 30, Bevelyn Beatty and Edmee Chavannes were outside Manhattan’s Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood in hopes of persuading women entering the facility not to go through with abortion, Live Action reports. A security guard called the police, who ordered them to leave for “social distancing” reasons. When they didn’t, they were arrested for failure to disperse. BLM supports “reproductive justice that gives us autonomy over our bodies.” An estimated 40 percent of all U.S. Abortions are sought by black women, meaning that Black Lives Matter supports the annual elimination of more than 344,800 black lives every year.
