3 recent victories in America’s Culture War: abortion, conversion therapy, Drag Queen Story Hour

Although the overall trend is that the Right have lost the culture war, we do have three recent victories.

Those three wins as reported by Dr. Michael Brown for The Christian Post, Sept. 20, 2019, are:

(1) The number and rate of abortions in America have dropped to their lowest levels since 1973:

The Associated Press reports that according to a Sept. 18, 2019 report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, the number and rate of abortions across the United States have plunged to their lowest levels since 1973 when the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide:

  • The number of abortions have steadily decreased from the peak of 1.6 million in 1990, to a little more than 1 million in 2011, to 926,000 in 2014, to 862,000 abortions in 2017.
  • The rate of abortions in 2017 declined to 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 — the lowest rate since 1973, and less than half what it was in 1990.

Admittedly, some of the decline is due to increased use of contraception and lower fertility rates, with women having fewer children in general. Still, the decline in the number and rate of abortions is also due to a recognition of the wrongness of abortion.

2) New York City has decided to drop an oppressive ban on so-called conversion therapy:

Tyler O’Neil reports for PJ Media on Sept. 16, 2019, that NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson announced that because of a legal challenge from Orthodox Jewish psychologist Dr. David Schwartz, the city will act swiftly to repeal a 2017 law forbidding therapists from charging clients for “services intended to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.” Therapists who violated the law would be fined $1,000 per violation.

Johnson, who is homosexual, said: “Obviously I didn’t want to repeal this. I don’t want to be someone who is giving in to these right-wing groups. But the Supreme Court has become conservative; the Second Circuit, which oversees New York, has become more conservative. We think this is the most responsible, prudent course.”

3) Some cities are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” in local libraries:

Recall that last year, the American Library Association approved “Drag Queen Story Hour” in public libraries for children as young as 3. Below is one of the drag queens (source: Mass Resistance).

On Sept. 8, 2019, the South Bay Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, CA, was vandalized for opposing “Drag Queen Story Hour” in the local public library. That Sunday morning, church goers were greeted by satanic graffiti on the church door.  (Source: Mass Resistance)

Some cities, however, are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” because of parental protests.

One of them is Leander, Texas.

As reported by Mass Resistance, a pro-family activist organization, on August 15, 2019, Leander’s City Council voted 5-2 to stop renting out their public library meeting rooms to outside organizations, and voted 6-1 to require background checks for guest presenters for programs in the library involving children 17 and younger. By all accounts, these policy changes will completely stop the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in Leander’s public library.

Seems like some common sense, in America, is coming back, however Loyola University Chicago bows to transgender tyranny.

When my daughter was looking for colleges to consider, LUC was one of them, and we went to an open house. Even during the introductory meeting for prospective students & parents, I knew the speaker was full of **it, and I wanted to challenge him on his BS, but knew I’d get booed out of there. I also knew Loyola wasn’t her first choice either, but at the same time, I didn’t want to alienate her from me. I saw the GTLB organization, as well as a mooslime group, and couldn’t believe this was allowed to take place at a… Read more »

We need every victory that comes our way. But we have to remember that the “silent majority” that most of America was have to go on the offensive. We have to use the internet while we still have it. Again: I have grown leery of Trump because of his refusal or failure to do anything about internet censorship. Like Alex Jones and others, we cannot rely on him; It looks like we’re going to have to do it ourselves. We can’t be like folks 50 years ago and just throw up our hands. And we don’t have a Ronald Reagan… Read more »
