So here’s some brief information of articles that I found interesting. They’re taken across the spectrum of what we talk about here at MInTheGap. I’ll take a quote from the site and also talk about my opinion of what is being presented. We’ll do this as a new series as a way to get the latest on what I think on all these different matters.
One of the things that the pro-choice groups seem to want to trumpet is that abortion gives women choices. Well, in more and more cases, it’s taking away choices as women are forced into abortions in all different manners:
In Georgia, police arrested Rozelletta Blackshire after she allegedly forced her pregnant 16-year-old daughter to drink turpentine in an attempt to abort the pregnancy. The mother and two of the girl’s cousins were charged with criminal abortion after the teen told a school counselor her mother had forced her to drink turpentine. The teen is three months pregnant and the health effects of the turpentine on her and her unborn child are still unknown.
Mrs. Laura Mallory believes that the Harry potter books are getting children to like and be involved in witchcraft. She goes so far as to say that the books seek to indoctrinate children into witchcraft. She believes that children have a hard time separating fantasy from reality, and are acting out casting spells on people.
The school argues that it they were to take out all books with references to witches they would also have to take out “Macbeth” and “Cinderella.”
“[Harry Potter books are] not educationally suitable and have been shown to be harmful to some kids,” Mallory said.
She argued that teachers do not assign other religious books like the Bible as student reading.
Every weeknight millions of Colombians tune in to watch a smash television series about the indignities suffered by a teen-age girl willing to do anything to get her breasts enlarged.
Tired of being poor and going to school with no good jobs in sight after graduation, Catalina decides to do what her friends have done and get breast implants in order to snag a gangster boyfriend who can take care of her.
What she is willing to do to get the procedure done is what is attracting people to this twisted show. The star believes that if she has an overflowing bosom it will be her “passport to heaven,” so she does everything she can (including prostituting herself for money) to get the procedure done.
