'If journalists were actually curious about what goes on during an abortion — not to mention a late-term abortion — they would not only do more research, but they would perhaps quote what abortionists say when they don’t think the press is listening.'
'Now, as I’ve said so often in this space, these small concessions to the transgender movement may not seem like a big deal. But the reality is that these are concessions to a totalizing worldview that recognizes as true and valid fundamental tenets of gender ideology.'
