Over 1 million people have signed a pledge to boycott Target after the retailer announced last week that its stores will allow customers who are men according to their birth sex to go into women's bathrooms and dressing rooms.
The American Family Association's boycott surpassed 1 million supporters Thursday evening as people continue to sign their names to the campaign agreeing to stop shopping at Target until the company's bathroom policy is reversed.
"Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women's bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?" stated AFA. more >>
A Virginia abortion clinic has had its license suspended after an inspection found 26 violations using dirty equipment on women (patient after patient), workers not changing blood-stained scrubs between operations, and not changing scrubs after plunging a clogged toilet.

After being fired by ESPN last week for publishing his opinion in support of North Carolina's transgender law, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling spoke out against his former employer Wednesday, saying the network employs some of the "biggest racists" in sports commentating.
Schilling, a three-time World Series winner who was a color baseball commentator for the Disney-owned sports network, lost his job last Wednesday over a comment he posted in reply to an anti-transgender Facebook meme.
Schilling's comment stated: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently, Pathetic!" more >>
Following Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's announcement Wednesday that former GOP candidate Carly Fiorina is to be his vice-presidential running mate, the nation's largest abortion provider chastised the two staunch pro-lifers as "the most loathsome pair."
Fiorina has long called for Planned Parenthood to be stripped of its tax funding and has frequently cited last year's Center for Medical Progress sting videos that purport to show abortion clinics violating the law. The abortion giant's lobbying arm issued a statement that claims that a Fiorina-Cruz ticket would give American women "nightmares."
"This is the same Carly Fiorina who is best known for lying; firing 30,000 people at Hewlett Packard; falling drastically in the race for the GOP nomination because of her lies about Planned Parenthood; and ambushing a preschool field trip to use toddlers as a tiny prop audience in an anti-abortion talk," the Planned Parenthood Action Fund wrote on its website. more >>
Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently found himself rebutting a tweet from a self-described atheist who mocked a pro-faith message he had posted earlier on the social media site.

In a move the American Counseling Association has described as hateful towards gay and transgender people, Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed a controversial bill into law Wednesday that allows a licensed counselor or therapist to refuse service to clients whose "goals, outcomes or behaviors" conflict with their "sincerely held principles."
"No counselor or therapist providing counseling or therapy services shall be required to counsel or serve a client as to goals, outcomes, or behaviors that conflict with the sincerely held principles of the counselor or therapist; provided, that the counselor or therapist coordinates a referral of the client to another counselor or therapist who will provide the counseling or therapy," notes Senate Bill 1556.
The bill which went into effect immediately, according to The Tennessean, also protects professionals who refuse service under the bill from civil lawsuits, criminal prosecution and sanctions by the state licensing board as long as they coordinate a referral of the client to another counselor who would serve them. more >>
