    While abortion has long been a topic of significant debate, the issue recently rose to the societal fore when a Supreme Court draft opinion for a pending case was leaked — the draft revealed that the high court may overturn Roe v. Wade later this year. Leftists have been sounding the alarm about the potential Supreme Court ruling. A group of liberal senators signed a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin urging him to ensure that military service members can travel to get an abortion if abortion is no longer available in their location after the high court issues an official ruling. "At a minimum, you and your staff should consider implementing policy changes to allow servicemembers to obtain, for example, special liberty or permissive temporary additional duty permissions in order to travel out of state for reproductive healthcare and abortions if they are stationed in a jurisdiction that curtails these rights after the Dobbs decision is issued," the senators said in the letter.
    The Pro-Choice Caucus released a messaging document labeling the “safe, legal, and rare” pro-abortion rhetoric as “harmful language.” The Pro-Choice Caucus — co-chaired by Reps. Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Barbara Lee (D-CA) — released messaging materials to update the language surrounding their pro-abortion arguments. They suggested “helpful language” to replace “harmful language” such as: Replacing the “harmful” term “choice” for the “helpful” term “decision” Replacing “reduce abortion/’safe, legal, and rare'” for “safe, legal, and accessible.” (Then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton introduced the “safe, legal, and rare” abortion line about his limited support for abortion during his 1992 campaign.) Replacing “unwanted pregnancy” with “unexpected pregnancy” Replacing “conscience clause/protections” with “refusal of care/denial of care laws” Replacing “back-alley abortions/coat hangers” with “criminalizing healthcare” NEW: The Pro Choice Caucus has just sent out messaging materials to House Dems on Roe draft.

    Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images The House Pro-Choice Caucus has released a language guide with suggestions about what to say and not to say on the issue of abortion, including an admonition on the harmfulness of the word “choice.” The pro-irony caucus? Politico congressional correspondent Sarah Ferris tweeted a chart that was part of what she said are “messaging materials” from the all-Democrat caucus.   NEW: The Pro Choice Caucus has just sent out messaging materials to House Dems on Roe draft. One of the recommendations: Don’t use “choice.” pic.twitter.com/nqVA8W1nWT — Sarah Ferris (@sarahnferris) May 12, 2022 In addition to “choice,” words deemed “harmful language” include “reduce abortion,” “safe, legal and rare,” “unwanted pregnancy,” “conscience clause/protections” and “back-alley abortions/coat hangers.” “Helpful language,” on the other hand, includes words like “decision,” “safe, legal and accessible,” “unexpected pregnancy,” “refusal of care/denial of care laws” and “criminalizing healthcare.” The language guide comes a day after the Senate failed to proceed with a bill that would legalize abortion up until birth and prohibit restrictions. The vote occurred a week after Politico reported on a leaked...
    In July 2020, following the death of George Floyd, the school announced plans to significantly expand its "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" efforts. As part of the drive, the school publicly committed to "developing a new policy for inclusion in the Student Handbook that specifically addresses racial hate speech." Other progressive initiatives have been undertaken, as well, including the scrapping of Columbus Day in favor of "Indigenous Peoples' Day" and the school's sponsorship of an "Alliance of White Antiracists." At least one alumnus has found the changes disheartening. "St. Albans used to have a simple honor code: Don't lie, cheat, or steal," the alumnus told the Free Beacon. "Everything else was adjudicated human-to-human. Now boys are being policed for humor and innocuous comments are subject to the highest form of punishment." St. Alban's new policy is reminiscent of the uber-woke speech code implemented at Grace Church School in NoHo, where students are advised against using offensive terms such as "mom and dad" and "Merry Christmas." Other similar policies have been implemented in schools across the country.
                        After the bureaucrats at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) slapped a warning label on the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, Ohio lawmakers are ducking the issue. NARA, which organizes America’s historical documents in an online catalog, warns that some of the content could be triggering. “NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records,” the group said on its website. “As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions. In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance.” After public backlash, NARA clarified that the warning label is general, and is not directed at any particular document in the archives. Still, all of America’s founding documents are included in the catalog. The warning continues on the group’s website: Some items may: reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions...
    The absurdity and dysfunction of the Biden Administration have become so pervasive that it’s easy to become numb to it all. But some things it does are still so outrageous and inconceivable – touching on the very identity of the nation itself – that it is worth pausing to take stock of just how far the U.S. has fallen as a country in the short time Joe Biden has occupied the White House. The latest example comes from the National Archives, the federal entity entrusted with preserving America’s most significant records and documents, including those which established the United States as an independent nation. Images of those original documents – which include the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights – are now displayed on the National Archives’ website with a “Harmful Language Alert.” This advisory warns the content in the documents may, among other things, be “outdated,” “offensive,” “racist,” and “discriminatory.” The alert was placed on the website by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), a collection of D.C. bureaucrats who obviously believe they are smarter, more enlightened, and morally superior to those whose genius,...
                        The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) placed warning labels on the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and other historical documents, warning viewers that “some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.” The Arizona Sun Times requested comment from Arizona’s Democratic Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema, asking if they approved of the decision, and only received auto replies. The warning about “harmful language” can be clearly seen at the top of the National Archives site. The new FAQ about the warning says harmful or difficult content includes “racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes” and material that is “discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more.” It says it includes “language that was accepted at the time.” The FAQ reassures viewers that archivists are not only “informing users about the presence and origin of harmful content,” but “evaluating existing processes for exclusionary practices or institutional bias that prioritize one culture and/or group over...
                        The National Archives website features a “harmful language alert” that appears above all content in its online catalog, including the Constitution and other founding documents, but also including recent documents like a photo of the Obamas at the 2013 presidential inauguration. Some conservatives are reacting to this as an example of D.C. bureaucracy tampering with American history. “What are we becoming? Now the National Archives posts a “Harmful Language Alert” on its website when you pull up the U.S. Constitution?! Are you kidding me,” former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli tweeted Monday. The Virginia Star asked both the Youngkin and McAuliffe campaigns for comment, but received no response by press time. National Archives staff told The Star that the alert is not linked to any specific content. “The warning is placed there because the Catalog contains some content that may be graphic or difficult to view. Our records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical...
                        The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has slapped “Harmful Language” warnings on online displays of American founding documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution—and U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA-17) is keeping quiet about it. The Star News Network emailed Lamb’s press office Friday to ascertain his view of the matter. Neither the congressman—who recently announced a bid for U.S. Senate—nor his staff have replied. An online statement from NARA says its online materials contain “some content that may be harmful or difficult to view.” Some records, it goes on, “may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions.” NARA promises to “seek to balance the preservation of this history with sensitivity to how these materials are presented to and perceived by users.” This is only the latest move toward political correctness by NARA, whose Task Force on Racism has generated internal calls for removing the term “charters of freedom” from descriptions of U.S. founding documents.  This May, about 800 NARA staffers from locations across...
                       
    The National Archives has added a 'harmful language alert' label on the nation's founding documents including the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence as part of a new 'anti-racism' policies put in place by a task force. The move by the institution, which is also considering retiring the term ‘charters of freedom’ since the founding documents did not grant liberty to everyone, has prompted furious reactions online. The agency implemented the new policy as per the recommendation of an anti-racism task force that was named last year after the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  Earlier this year, the task force produced a 100-page report blasting its own headquarters' rotunda for 'structural racism' over paintings it displays which are said to depict the United States' white founding fathers in too positive a light.  According to the authors, the rotunda's famed murals depicting scenes such as the sighting of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution are insufficiently tempered with depictions of Native Americans being driven off their land by settlers. The National Archives building is seen above in Washington, DC...
    The National Archives Records Administration has placed a "harmful language alert" on records in the website's catalog, including the nation's founding documents. The NARA statement warns readers that the documents they are reading may "contain harmful language that reflects attitudes and biases of their time." Warnings of graphic and violent content in historical documents are also given. "NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records," NARA states in its alert. "As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." TEXAS REPUBLICANS PUSH PROPOSAL TO PUNISH TECH PLATFORMS THEY SAY CENSOR CONSERVATIVES Congress established NARA in 1934 to preserve historical documents and the records of the U.S. government. Important documents that are under NARA's protection include the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence, among others. https://twitter.com/USNatArchives/status/1435334824353574914?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1435334824353574914%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthefederalist.com%2F2021%2F09%2F08%2Fnational-archives-issues-harmful-content-warning-on-constitution-all-other-founding-documents%2F After website visitors began to notice the warnings, one Twitter user asked NARA for clarification via Twitter.

    Beijing lawmakers are seeking to punish foreign teachers whose behaviours are considered to be 'harmful to China's national sovereignty'. A drafted law targeting overseas educators in the country has demanded institutions terminate their contracts with foreign employees if their actions or verbal statements are deemed 'damaging to the country's security, honour and public interests'. Those who 'engage in religious education or preach illegally' will also face being fired from their jobs, according to the document released by the Ministry of Education today. Beijing lawmakers have issued a draft regulation that seeks to punish foreign teachers whose behaviours are considered to be 'harmful to China's national sovereignty'. This file picture taken on October 25, 2009 shows an English citizen teaching kids at a school in China The regulation continues by ordering education institutions to provide their foreign staff with at least 20 hours of training on China's laws and current affairs.
