Do Rapists Have the Right to Parent Children Conceived in Rape? Part One of a Two-Part Series of Columns

Do Rapists Have the Right to Parent Children Conceived in Rape? Part One of a Two-Part Series of Columns | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
In August of this year, U.S. Representative Todd Akin made what has become an infamously insensitive claim about children conceived in rape: He suggested that they simply do not exist. More specifically, he said of pregnancy from rape that “[i]t seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare . . . . If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Akin thereby claimed that there is a biological mechanism in women that precludes conception from rape.

Though some female animals have a biological mechanism like this, as discussed by Cornell Professor and Justia columnist Michael C. Dorf here, the human female does not. Representative Akin’s suggestion therefore displayed a combination of startling ignorance about human reproductive biology, and deplorable indifference to the plight of rape victims who find themselves carrying their attackers’ progeny. The context of Akin’s remarks, as readers may recall, was the debate over whether women who conceive in rape should have legal access to an abortion. Akin’s answer was no, in part because, to his mind, the category of such women represents a virtual null set.

Personal Statements: which crowd are you standing out from? | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

The Sutton Trust has published some research on personal statements in UCAS applications being used as a qualitative indicator of the likely aptitudes of a student.  They warn against inherent problems with such statements, which may account in part for the dramatic over-representation of Independent school children in elite Universities.  I quote their executive summary in full.

Max Clifford Associates

Max Clifford Associates | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

By John Baverstock

The media are now refering to Operation Yew Tree as the Savile Inquiry, which is a bit close to the Saville Inquiry (eventually report) into the events of 30 January 1972 in the bogside area of Derry, often called Bloody Sunday.

 

Is it not exciting to know the police can arrest 5 people with only hearsay but they British Government can't arrest people factually to blame for the slaughter of peacefull protesters

 

Ngozi A. Godwell shared Simon Jinks's status.via Facebook

"In light of the recent arrest of Max Clifford and In order to avoid all the waste of police time on Operation Yewtree, would the celebrity who did not engage in sexual abuse in the 1970's and 80's please stand up!"

Advocacy for Your School Library Helps All School Libraries

Advocacy for Your School Library Helps All School Libraries | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

A teacher librarian's story......I explain to him that it is vital that librarians shout about all the wonderful activities happening in their library. I do just that with this blog, the library website, twitter, email blasts, discussions with my principal, notices in the daily memo and articles in the school monthly newsletter. Since I became a librarian, I have used whatever media was available to advertise the library. I had to.

Coleridge J cleared of misconduct on pro-marriage stance | News | The Lawyer | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

Mr Justice Coleridge has been cleared of judicial misconduct over his involvement with pro-marriage charity the Marriage Foundation, but said he would take a “lower profile” position.

 

The Office for Judicial Complaints launched its investigation in May following a complaint that his neutrality as a judge could be compromised after he took part in a pro-marriage event.

 

Here is a person who forgets that marriage many a time, is not a bed of roses.

G (A Child) [2012] EWCA Civ 1690

G (A Child) [2012] EWCA Civ 1690 | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
1. This is an application for permission to appeal brought by the father of HG, who was born on 18 December 2007 and so is now shortly going to be five years old. The potential appeal arises out of longstanding private law family proceedings continuing in the Brighton County Court between Mr G, H's father and DC, H's mother. We understand that the hearing that we are focussing on, which was the determination made by HHJ Waddicor on 5 March 2012, was no less than the 26th hearing that has taken place between these two parents either about the arrangements for H or the financial arrangements, and that since the March hearing there have been subsequent hearings before various judges in the Sussex area.

An ABC News editorial producer earned the online equivalent of a hard slap to the face Friday, after she used Twitter to approach two people for interviews who were painfully close to the morning massacre of a Connecticut elementary school.

Nadine Shubailat tweeted interview requests to a man who said his “good friend” had a child in kindergarten at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and to a woman whose cousin was a first-grade teacher killed in the Friday morning gun rampage.

Rare Family Law Case Heard by U.S. Supreme Court

Rare Family Law Case Heard by U.S. Supreme Court | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
Many parents embroiled in child custody cases might only dream of bringing their cases to the highest court in the land, yet this became reality for Army Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Lee Chafin last week, when oral arguments were heard by the U.S.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:

"A case is moot if there is no case or controversy for the appeals court to resolve. In other words, the issues presented are no longer live or the parties lack a legally cognizable interest in the outcome."

Political Prisoner Radio w Linda Evans formerly of Weather Underground


Linda Evans joins the broadcast. She was sentenced to 40 years in prison for allegedly by guns with a fake id that many legal analysts called "excessive". She spent 16 years incarcerated for her political activities before President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence. Current Attorney General Eric Holder worked in the pardons office at the time.
According to the organization she works with now, LSPC, Linda Evans is co-author of the booklet, "The Prison Industrial Complex and the Global Economy". Linda received her B.A. and M.A. in Humanities while she was in prison.
Since her release, she has been active in several moments and work concerning the children of Political Prisoners & POW. She also has been working in the Occupy Movement and was part of the Occupy San Quentin movement. We will ask her to explain her role in the people's revolution of the 60's and 70's and what can oppressed people do to meet today's challenges.
