After being carried off the track at her last meet, Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross is leaning on God to qualify for the final Olympic games of her career.
A hamstring injury at the American Track League meet in Atlanta earlier this month resulted in the previous 400 meter gold medalist missing out on the opportunity to become a part of the team that will compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. The last opportunity for Richards-Ross to qualify for the games before her retirement comes on July 3.
"Sometimes you need to minister to yourself. ... Re-reading my own words, remembering that God's love has always been the greatest prize has reassured me of the strength I have on this journey. This is not where I expected to be going into my final season but it's exactly where God wants me to be, and for that I'm empowered and revitalized," she wrote on Instagram. "This weekend I'll be running purely on my faith. ... And let me tell you something, that's a wonderful place to be!!!!" more >>

A woman who identifies as a left-wing academic says her parental rights are being denied by doctors who are planning to mutilate her 19-year-old autistic daughter's body by performing gender reassignment surgery, which includes having her breasts amputated and taking massive testosterone injections to "grow a penis."
"I am a lone voice in the academic and social work world speaking out against the [trensgender] transitioning of autistic people, what I feel to be both a crime against the disabled as well as their sterilization," Dr. Kathleen Levinstein, a clinical social worker teaching at the University of Michigan, told Breitbart News.
