Published

on

The Utah state House of Representatives passed a bill on Friday that would limit the number of abortions performed in the state.

Approved in the House by a 54 to 15 vote, the bill would make performing abortion on babies diagnosed with Down syndrome in the womb illegal.

“The legislation approved Friday would only go into effect if a similar law is upheld in court, a provision added to address concerns that it could embroil the state in an expensive lawsuit,” according to the Associated Press.

The proposed bill follow suit after countries like Denmark and Iceland reportedly performed abortion specifically on pregnancies diagnosed with Down syndrome in an effort to eliminate the group. If passed, Utah would become the fourth state to protect babies with Down Syndrome in the womb, making aborting those with the disorder a class-A misdemeanor.

After a report was released that nearly 100% of pregnancies diagnosed with Down syndrome resulted in abortion in Iceland. The Daily Wire reports:

“Unborn babies with Down syndrome and other disabilities are discriminated against at astronomical rates. Parents whose unborn babies have Down syndrome or other disabilities frequently report feeling pressure to abort them by doctors and genetic counselors.”

The test for Downs is performed between 10 and 13 weeks of pregnancy. While it is hard to determine the exact amount of  abortions performed on babies with Down syndrome, “Some put the rate as high as 90 percent in the United States, but it is difficult to determine the exact number because the U.S. government does not keep detailed statistics about abortion,” according to Life News.

Utah has already taken previous measures to protect life inside the womb. Live Action reports that Utah’s current law “requires a woman to complete an online module which would educate her on childbirth (including fetal development, with photos), abortion (including a section on fetal pain), adoption, and other aid resources available to her before she makes her decision about her pregnancy.”

The bill will next head to the Senate for a vote.

Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder

Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.

Published

Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.

Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.

I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.

Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
