“Pakistan makes blasphemy law more stringent, sparking alarm among Christians… Pakistan’s Parliament has amended one of its blasphemy laws to increase the punishment for insulting the Prophet Muhammad’s companions and other sacred personalities, sparking alarm among Christian leaders, who demanded quite the opposite — its repeal. The Muslim-majority country’s National Assembly this week passed the Criminal Laws (Amendment) Bill, increasing the punishment for insulting the prophet’s companions, wives, and family members to 10 years in prison, along with a fine of 1 million rupees (approximately $4,424 USD). The law as it was previously written only punished violators by up to three years in prison. – Christian Post

The poll found 44% of people want increased abortion restrictions, including not allowing abortion at all (8%), allowing abortion only to save the life of the mother (10%), or in the case of rape or incest (26%).

“Gavin Newsom’s wife’s films shown in schools contain explicit images, push gender ideology, boost his politics… Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom, founded The Representation Project nonprofit to fight “sexism through films education, research and activism.” Siebel Newsom writes and directs “gender identity” films produced through her for-profit operation, Girls Club Entertainment, that are then licensed by the nonprofit to public schools. The films, which include “Miss Representation,” “The Mask You Live In,” “The Great American Lie” and “Fair Play,” are licensed to taxpayer-funded schools across every state and sometimes contain sexually explicit imagery and push students to feel “shame and sorrow” about American society split by privilege and oppression. They are paired with curricula that include discussion on Gov. Newsom’s comments within the films, urging them to gather their friends and vote for aligned politicians that support a “care economy” that “embraces universal human values.” – Fox News
