Hundreds of thousands rally in Rome against gay ‘civil unions’ and adoption as vote nears

Hundreds of thousands rally in Rome against gay ‘civil unions’ and adoption as vote nears | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

February 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – As the Italian Parliament prepares to vote on “civil unions” for homosexuals, a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people rallied in Rome’s Circus Maximus and adjacent streets on January 30 to protest in favor of the family and the rights of children.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

The gargantuan protest, dubbed “Family Day,” was organized by the Committee to Defend Our Children, and aimed to thwart an attempt by the ruling Democratic Party and its allies to grant legal recognition to homosexual unions and to allow homosexuals to adopt their “stepchildren” – that is, the children of their sex partners.

 

The protestors expressed their concern that such a measure would enable homosexuals to contract with egg donors and surrogates to “synthesize” children who will never know their mothers and who lack any right to a natural family.

 

“The uterus is not a furnace in which a manufactured product is made!” said Massimo Gandolfini, the main spokesman for the march, to the assembled crowd.

Calling the proposed law “destructive,”

 

Gandolfini warned that if it were approved, “there will be an enormous confusion in which the family will no longer exist, but rather various models and confusions of the family, and the victims will be our children, because the law has the power to change the culture of a people.”

#Adoption #blog

 

For as long as Tom and I have been talking about adopting, we have wanted to adopt a sibling group. I’d like to say that this was a truly altruistic decision but we came to it as we’d been told we were more likely to get younger children if we took on siblings. As the months passed on, we kept being told how much more difficult siblings would be to manage, and that we were highly unlikely to get young children, but oddly our decision didn’t change.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

Tom and I both have older siblings and I think, deep down, we knew that we wanted our children to have the same bond and connection with a brother or sister as we do.

Here's Why Obama's New Wall Street Rule Is A Great Idea

Here's Why Obama's New Wall Street Rule Is A Great Idea | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
Most retirement advisers aren't required to give advice or pick investments in the best interest of their clients. This simple fact surprises most people. But it's true. So long as an investment isn't pure garbage -- if it is "suitable" for a future retiree -- then advisers can steer clients into assets that come with big perks for the adviser.

Policewoman wants son returned from NY foster care - Marilyn Stowe Blog

Policewoman wants son returned from NY foster care - Marilyn Stowe Blog | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
A British policewoman is trying to secure the return of her 15 month-old son from foster care in New York State.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

The 42 year-old was arrested in Manhattan after she reportedly left her son alone in a hotel room. The two were staying in New York City on their way back from a holiday in the Caribbean. A member of the hotel staff found the child alone in the mother’s room and called the police, who detained her. She was also accused of leaving her son alone for longer than an hour on two other occasions during her two-week stay.


The woman insisted that one of those two occasions she had only been gone for 30 minutes while she washed her baby’s bottles and on the other she had been eating breakfast nearby. In a legal statement, she claimed that “in London this behaviour of leaving a child for a short period of time is normal and acceptable”.

 

Although criminal charges of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest were dropped, a local family court ruled that the boy had been neglected. He was taken into the state’s foster care system and the mother had to return to England alone.

 

Soon after her arrival back in the UK, she launched legal proceedings against New York State, arguing for the return of her son. He was being held hostage and had been “kidnapped in a foreign country”, her lawyer claimed.

Banning teenagers from social media would be an attack on their human rights

New data protection rules could block under-16s from social media access without parental consent, denying them rights to expression and information
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

 

As far as adult internet users are concerned, the reforms presented in these new regulations are mostly empowering. But, whether intentional or not, they could wind up disempowering and disenfranchising millions of young internet users.

 

When first drafted, the regulations generally reflected the status quo in most of Europe, the US and other regions, by requiring parental consent before commercial services could process personal information from children under 13. But, at the last minute, the age was raised to 16, effectively banning children from accessing Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and other services without parental consent.

Family Law Week: Court of Appeal clarifies law on internal relocation

Court of Appeal clarifies law on internal relocation

 

The only principle is that the child’s welfare is paramount

 

The Court of Appeal has clarified the law in relation to internal relocation, that is when one parent seeks to move with their child to another part of the United Kingdom, and the other parent objects.



The existing law had suggested that a left-behind parent might have to demonstrate 'exceptional circumstances' in order to prevent a move, a test which does not apply in international cases. In dismissing the father's appeal, the Court of Appeal confirmed that there is no distinction between the two 'categories' of case, and that the only principle to be applied in either situation is that the child's welfare is paramount.

Man found guilty of killing his unborn baby in savage attack on ex-girlfriend | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
A MAN has been found guilty of killing his unborn baby in a savage attack on his heavily pregnant ex-girlfriend after she refused to have an abortion.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

Teaching assistant Kevin Wilson, 22, and a 17-year-old who cannot be named, were found guilty of child destruction and causing grievous bodily harm to Malorie Bantala on June 15 this year.

 

The pair wore crash helmets to carry out the attack on Miss Bantala, who was eight months pregnant, as she walked home after buying decorations for her baby shower.

 

As she approached, Wilson and his accomplice emerged from bushes outside her flat where they had waited to ambush the Marks & Spencer worker.

 

The court heard how she lay curled up on the ground, desperately trying to protect her unborn child with one hand, after her bump was targeted in the assault.

The long read: Asunta Fong Yang was adopted as a baby by a wealthy Spanish couple. Aged 12, she was found dead beside a country road. Not long after, her mother and father were arrested
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

One day in late June 2001, Rosario Porto, a petite, dark-haired lawyer from Santiago de Compostela, northern Spain, sat nervously on a flight to China beside her husband Alfonso Basterra, a quiet man from the Basque country, who worked as a freelance journalist. The couple, both in their mid-30s, were on their way to adopt a baby girl. Porto swallowed two tablets of Orfidal – a common anti-anxiety medicine that she had used before then – but remained too agitated and excited to sleep.

10 Laws Putin's Foes Say Russia Needs To Scrap

10 Laws Putin's Foes Say Russia Needs To Scrap | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

A group of prominent Russian dissidents has identified what it says are Russia's 10 most harmful laws. Their project, "Sanatsia Prava," or Sanitation Of The Law, calls for the abolition of legislation that they say causes extensive harm to Russian society.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

'Dima Yakovlev' Law

One of the most divisive laws adopted by Russia in recent years, this 2012 legislation bars U.S. citizens from adopting Russian orphans.

 

It is named after Dmitry Yakovlev, a Russian-born toddler who died of heatstroke in the United States in 2008 after his adoptive father left him in a parked car for nine hours. A U.S. court ruled the death an accident.

 

The ban came in response to U.S. sanctions targeting alleged human rights abusers in Russia and named in memory of Sergei Magnitsky, a whistle-blowing Russian lawyer who died in pretrial detention after exposing alleged government tax fraud.

 

The Dima Yakovlev law effectively blocked the departure of about 200 Russian orphans who had already been told they would soon go home to their adoptive families in the United States.

 

Many of those children have severe diseases and disabilities.

 

Sanatsia Prava says the law was passed "with numerous procedural irregularities" and violates the Russian Constitution, the Russian Family Code, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 

The ban, it adds, "runs counter to common sense and universal ideas of justice, when orphaned children become bargaining chips in foreign-policy games and are deprived of the chance to acquire a full-fledged family."

Church in controversial legal tactic to block lawsuits | smh.com.au

Church in controversial legal tactic to block lawsuits | smh.com.au | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

By CHRIS VEDELAGO, CAMERON HOUSTON


The Catholic Church attempted for nearly a decade to conceal incriminating documents about child sex abuse using a controversial legal tactic that it has since renounced as "inappropriate".

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

The bid to manipulate "legal privilege" to keep its records from public disclosure was one in a series of controversial measures taken to protect the reputation and assets of the church after complaints about paedophile priests began "coming out of the woodwork" in the 1980s.


Internal documents show the Australian Catholics Bishops Conference – a panel comprising the church's senior leaders in Australia – was warned in April 1988 that church records were vulnerable to discovery and public disclosure in the event of civil lawsuits by alleged victims.

Heather Jones, charged in Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree felony murder and child abuse, appears by closed-circuit television. Her husband is scheduled to appear on Tuesday.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

Heather Jones and her husband, Michael A. Jones, are charged in Wyandotte County District Court with first-degree felony murder and child abuse in the death of the boy, whom authorities are calling A.J.

 

Family members have identified him as Adrian Jones. A civil paternity case filed by state officials last year in Wyandotte County lists Adrian Jones as a son of Michael Jones.

 

Kansas City, Kan., police said he has been missing for several months, and they believe that human remains found at the Jones residence last month are his. They are continuing to work to identify the remains.

 
 
STILL the media has not one word of explanation as to how violent father MICHAEL A. JONES gained and retained custody of TWO children "from a previous relationship." 

What happened to the mother? With a violent father, the question must be asked. 

And what about this civil paternity case?
