Sandra Merritt and the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden spent 30 months in an undercover capacity as a journalist exposing Planned Parenthood’s illegal trade in aborted baby body parts. In 2015 they released videos of Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the prices of aborted baby body parts and discussing how they change abortion procedures to obtain more intact organs.
Some of those statements were presented to the U.S. Supreme Court by Harmeet K. Dhillon, Mark P. Meuser from Meuser Dhillon Law Group and Charles S. Limandri Counsel of Record Paul M.

Board finds Christian teachers are "committed to Jesus Christ"
“I could not be safe in this school district.”
Tamillia Valenzuela, an Arizona school board member that describes herself as “a bilingual, disabled, neurodivergent Queer Black Latina, has voiced opposition to the Washington Elementary School District's ongoing contract with Arizona Christian University. The district serves students in the Phoenix and Glendale areas.
In the meeting Valenzuela, while wearing cat ears, said she was alarmed to learn that “Part of their values is… [to] ‘transform the culture with truth by promoting the Biblically-informed values that are foundational to Western civilization, including the centrality of family, traditional sexual morality, and lifelong marriage between one man and one woman,'” she said and added, “And I think it’s a really good time for us to take a moment and really pause about where our values lie.” .......READ MORE
In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Dr. James Thorp, a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist, said, “The pushing of these experimental COVID-19 vaccines globally is the greatest violation of medical ethics in the history of medicine, maybe humanity.” His statement is supported by government data that has found that, in comparison to the influenza vaccine, the COVID-19 gene-based inoculations produce a 57-fold increase in miscarriages, a 38-fold increase in stillbirth rates, and a 1200-fold increase in menstrual abnormalities.
Dr. Thorp is an expert in maternal-fetal medicine, with almost 44 years of experience. “We have never, ever broken the sacrosanct golden rule of pregnancy, never, ever,” he said it is a “golden rule to never allow unknown substances to ever be used in pregnancy.” ........ READ MORE
The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) is well known for its defense of family values, the church, and the promotion of Christian tradition. It is, according to their website, “an organization of lay Catholic Americans concerned about the moral crisis shaking the remnants of Christian civilization. Its earliest origins date back to January 1971, when the first TFP members started to group around the publication Crusade for a Christian Civilization. Today, with over 120,000 active members, volunteers, and donors, the TFP is on the front lines of the Culture War, peacefully defending the values of tradition, family, and private ownership.” ......

Young people today, some as young as preschool are being assaulted across the nation by homosexual ideology. The LGBT community has made in-roads into schools and even some churches to persuade children into a transgender lifestyle. Drag queen reading times are available in schools and libraries in many states.
Mainstream media and the Left ask 'why are Christians and conservatives so upset about that?' They say that men have been wearing dresses for decades so what's the big deal? Washington Post Style section Columnist Monica Hesse wrote, “This is not about drag queens, either the ones who sit in library chairs or the ones who lip-sync to Beyoncé in the basements of gay nightclubs. This is not about children’s welfare, either. What this is about is a conniving subset of people who say they care about children’s welfare but who really care about marshaling outrage toward vulnerable scapegoats.”
Even the once well-respected Associated Press has weighed in. In a story titled, “Drag story hour hosts, under attack, dig in their heels” Olga Rodriguez and Ali Swenson wrote, “Outside Chicago, protesters harass parents attending storytime with their children and proclaim that the staff operating the event came “from the devil.” And in a San Francisco suburb, men invade Panda Dulce’s reading at a library’s Drag Queen Story Hour, shouting homophobic and transphobic slurs. Drag Queen Story Hour, a nonprofit, was started in San Francisco in 2015 by activist and author Michelle Tea. Chapters have since opened across the U.S. and elsewhere. Other organizations with readers in drag have also formed.” ....... READ MORE
Palm Beach County has lost an appeal to restrict counselors from providing minor clients with help to reduce or eliminate unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors, or gender confusion. The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals previously struck down City Ordinance 5407 in Otto, et al v. City of Boca Raton, FL et al, and found that this law, and the ban in Palm Beach County, were both content and viewpoint-based and violate the First Amendment right to free speech.
Under the laws that were struck down, a counselor could encourage a client to take life-altering hormone drugs or even undergo invasive surgery to remove healthy body parts, but could not help a client who seeks to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior, or confusion.
This means that counselors in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia are free to help their minor clients.

When I was growing up, my parents and grandparents often called their coffee “mother’s milk”. Now that I am the older generation in our family, I find myself repeating this phrase. It is especially good after taking my dog, Maggie, outside to ‘potty’ at 5:15 AM each morning. I take my first sip and tell Maggie those very words. Coffee is just so satisfying.
Over the years, people often tell me that too much coffee is not good for me. They never define what is “too much”. I usually drink two mugs in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. I’ve had many doctors warn me but most, if not all, are now deceased. When my new doctor started to warn me about too much coffee, on our first appointment, I held out my hand, and quickly said, “don’t even go there, doctor”. He didn’t.
Several years ago, I read that coffee actually has more positive than negative attributes. I decided to research it for my own satisfaction. A Harvard University scientific study had more than 100,000 participants over a 20-year period. This study found coffee provided a significant benefit in fighting Type 2 diabetes. People who increased their intake by one cup a day experienced an 11% lower risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. Participants who reduced their intake by one cup experienced a modest increase in the risk of getting this disease.
Other positives found in this study were:
Unfortunately, there can be several negative side effects such as:
The bottom line is that coffee is a stimulant that helps wake us up and gives us a boost of energy during the day. However, probably the most dangerous aspect of drinking coffee is dehydration. In late February, I got out of bed at 1:30 AM to go to the bathroom. The next thing I knew, I woke up on the bathroom floor in a pool of blood. Evidently, I blacked out and did a faceplant on the tile floor. My face took the brunt of the fall as I experienced 2 black eyes, a busted nose, and 2 broken teeth.
My heart doctor cleared me on the ‘heart’ being the cause and said it was most likely caused by a combination of low blood pressure and dehydration due to drinking a lot of coffee and not enough water. I’m sticking to low blood pressure as the cause, not coffee/dehydration. I do now try to drink several cups of water a day. After all, doctors are “usually” right.
I could use prayers for my continued recovery and prayers for my stupidity. Maybe the old adage is wrong and you can teach an “old” dog new tricks.
The News That Matters Podcast Co-host
Lyla Belle King is the youngest reporter on staff at The Missions Tribune.
She writes in each edition about life through the eyes a young devout
Christian girl. She sets an example of how to always stand for Christ - no matter what!
Hello Youth Room! How is everybody? I hope you all are staying safe and having a fantastic week so far. I’m praying for all the readers out there that you guys are all being blessed and protected. How’s school? We are more than halfway done this school year so keep on carrying forward! Anyways I wanted to let you guys know a little bit of Christian news before we get started! Not too long ago, the Kids’ Choice Awards took place. I watched it with my cousins, and it was very fun. But my favorite part was when singer, songwriter, and actor Joshua Basset won. Specifically, because his speech was focused on Jesus! I was so happy that he talked about the burden on so many people that Jesus Christ can and will lift! If you want to see what he said head over to Joshua’s Instagram and check it out! I feel like it’s so important for people with a large following, especially with youth, to speak out about God and encourage others too as well. Anyways, that doesn’t have much to do with this edition of Youth Room, but it simply made me happy to see.
Today I want to talk to you guys about one of my greatest challenges, Perfectionism. I know this is going to be difficult to write and maybe difficult for some to hear but God really put it on my heart to speak about. To me, the term perfectionism is evil. It takes away from my life and it takes away from my walk with God truly. It’s just another distraction and it’s a hard one to shake. Now, what I’m not saying is that to try and be perfect in the way that Jesus is perfect is wrong. We want to fight to be like Jesus! However, perfectionism really refers to what the world thinks perfect is. You know, straight A's, hundreds of Instagram likes, partying every night, popularity, an hourglass figure. I’ve watched as reaching for these things has completely destroyed a few of my friends and even chipped away at myself. That’s why it’s evil. One is because it makes us so self-obsessed, we say we don’t have time for God. And two, because it took some of our living away. Kids shouldn’t have this pressure and should spend their childhood making memories and laughing. Luckily, our generation is not hopeless. We are not lost. Jesus can bring our light back.
God doesn’t care if everyone loves you, he doesn’t care if you fail a class, he doesn’t care what you look like, but he made you beautiful just the way you are. God loves you as you are. His love is unconditional and that’s why it’s so freeing to walk with him. I know how hard it can be to feel like these things that we feel can only be one way. To feel like it’s life or death. I know the feeling of not doing enough. Not being enough. You are not alone though. And it’s not your fault you feel that way. But let me help you help yourself by telling you to choose God. Please, choosing God is choosing true happiness. You deserve to be happy even if this world tells you there’s only one way to be. I want to share a verse with you from Jeremiah, 29:11. It says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” You are so much more than a grade. You are so much more than a number on an Instagram post, a scale, or a rating. Much much more.
Youth Room, I appreciate you so much. I love all of you readers and Jesus loves you infinitely. If you haven’t chosen him and you are struggling, get saved and see how he picks up all the burdens off your shoulders. The Lord can do remarkable things beyond belief. So, you are not beyond fixing. You are not too broken. And it is never too late. I want you to know that you are loved, you are beautiful, and you are worth it! You got this; I believe in you. If you remember one thing from this article let it be that God loved you before you were even born and that love is unconditional. It is not defined by your worldly body or accomplishments.

As we walk on my heart today, is perfectionism. Perfectionism,
n. the tendency to demand of others or of oneself an extremely high or even flawless level of performance, in excess of what is required by the situation. It is associated with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mental health problems. This highly stressful tendency comes at a cost that is just too high to pay. It takes the joy out of life because of the constant pursuit of the mirage. An illusion that one could even obtain this level, let alone maintain it is illusive. One may experience traveling this road because of past trauma. For some, the root is believing their self-worth is based on their achievements. Efforts to feel in control, low self-esteem or feelings of inadequacy, and highly critical shaming. This list is not an exhaustive one these are just a few. When we recognize outward behavior is just a symptom of a deeper issue we should dig deeper, to uncover what has taken the life out of us. Then seek to unlearn those patterns and ways of thinking in order to live a better quality of life. Some may read in scripture. Therefore, you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:48NKJV) Thinking it supports their behavior, however, the meaning here does the opposite. So, to be “perfect” in this sense is to be completed in Christ. Our completion is the work of God through and in us when we give God our heart. We must cooperate with God’s work in us, submitting to him and his perfection of us. When we belong to him, we can rest and trust in him. Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6NKJV)
From My Heart 2 Yours,
