Has Commercialism Gone Too Far?

by Krystle Gabele

December 23, 2008

Just when you thought the toymakers could not go any further with crazy toys and ensuring children grow up faster, it appears that there is a new version of Betsy Wetsy on the toy market. There is an overwhelming demand at various retailers for this toy. While I do not have anything wrong with dolls (believe me, I once played with dolls), this doll has gone beyond the original design to more realistic childlike qualities.

According to The Washington Post, this new doll has caused a stir amongst many parents, who either find this doll inappropriate or just feel it is another toy that will be fun for their child. However, you might be wondering if this will have any impact on the child.

With 5,000 toys introduced into the market every year, “what happens is that there’s huge competition to get noticed. And what that means to toys is that they get more and more and more and more outrageous,” said Susan Linn, professor of child psychology at Harvard and director of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. “This toy is shocking enough that it’s going to be noticed. But at best, this toy is unnecessary. At worst, it’s really gross.”

But Jim Silver, editor of Time to Play, a Web magazine that reviews toys, says children want reality.

By the time they’re 5 or 6, they don’t want a play cellphone, they want a real cellphone,” Silver said. “A baby doll is all about nurturing. So what Mom went through with them, they want to go through with their dolls. And how do you do real potty training without pooping?” Silver said he laughed when he first saw the pooping dolls and wondered if they were necessary. Although he said he has been sworn to secrecy about next year’s new toys, an early peek shows reality is only going to get more real. “You’re going to see the envelope pushed to make baby dolls as real as possible without being offensive in any way.

It appears that the toy makers do not have any decency when it comes to producing age appropriate products. The fact that you have a toy reviewer indicating that the envelope will be pushed some more by the toy makers, you might wonder what will our children will be subject to next.

Responding to Guttmacher’s Attack

by Michael New

December 19, 2008

Earlier this month, the Alan Guttmacher Institute attacked my September Family Research Council study which documented the effectiveness of state level pro-life parental involvement laws. They claim that my methodology is ‘faulty.’ They also argue that forcing minors to reveal their pregnancy to their parents places teens at risk of abuse.

In my response I document three studies in peer reviewed journals that show that the overall incidence of abortion among minors declines after the passage of parental involvement laws. Additionally,parental involvement laws protect minors in other ways. Parental involvement laws make it more difficult for child predators to use abortions to cover up their criminal behavior.

Furthermore, many minors seeking abortions without their parents’ knowledge are at risk because they are unaware of their own medical history. In my response, I report cases where minors undergoing abortions died because they experienced an allergic reaction to the anesthesia.

It is for these reasons and others that many district attorneys, law enforcement officials, and groups representing crisis pregnancy centers support pro-life parental involvement laws. Here is a link to my full response [PDF].

Change Watch Backgrounder: Rahm Emanuel

by David Nammo

December 19, 2008

POSITION: CHIEF OF STAFF                                                        

BIRTH DATE: November 29, 1959

EDUCATION:  Emanuel graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 1981, and received a Master’s Degree in Speech and Communication from Northwestern University in 1985.

FAMILY:   Wife, Amy Rule; Three children: Zachariah Emanuel, Ilana Emanuel, Leah Emanuel

EXPERIENCE:  Rep. Rahm Emanuel is currently the White House Chief-of-Staff designate.  He has been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Illinois’s 5th District since January 3, 2003.  At the beginning of his second term, Emanuel received an assignment to serve on the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees taxes, trade, Social Security, and Medicare issues.  Additionally, Emanuel was appointed by then House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to serve as Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2005 and later as chairman of the House Democratic Caucus in 2007.

Emanuel began his career with the consumer rights organization Illinois Public Action.  He worked on Democrat Paul Simon’s 1984 election to the U.S. Senate and in 1989 served as a senior advisor and chief fundraiser for Richard M. Daley.  Emanuel served as a senior advisor to President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1998, after directing Clinton’s campaign finance committee.  In the White House, Emanuel was initially Assistant to the President for Political Affairs and then Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy.

After leaving the White House in 1998, Emanuel served as a managing director at Wasserstein Perella (now Dresdner Kleinwort), where he worked until 2002.  During that time, in 2000, Emanuel was named to the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) by then President Bill Clinton.

Abortion Record

Taxpayer Funded Abortion:  Emanuel supports taxpayer funded abortion and co-sponsored a bill that ensured access and taxpayer funding for abortion and abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.  Prevention First Act. H.R.819; http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:HR00819:@@@P

Emanuel received a 100% vote rating from the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign. http://www.hrc.org/documents/Congress_Scorecard-110th.pdf

Taxes

Marriage Tax Penalty:  Emanuel voted against the bill that would have permanently removed the Marriage Tax Penalty from the federal income tax code.  The bill would have amended the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to permanently extend the marriage penalty relief provided under the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001.  H.R. 4181, April 28, 2004, http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2004/roll138.xml.

Immigration

Driver’s Licenses:  Emanuel voted against the Real ID Act, which set minimal security requirements for state driver’s licenses and identification cards. H.R. 418, Feb. 19, 2005, http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2005/roll031.xml.

FRC Responding to Newsweek Bias

by Timothy Dailey

December 19, 2008

The day after Newsweek published it’s inaccurate article called “Our Mutual Joy,” FRC sent the following letter to the editor for their exclusive use to provide some small balance to their highly biased article. As it does not appear you will be reading it in the pages of Newsweek, you can see it here for yourself:

Having years ago completed my doctoral dissertation on the subject of the Bible and homosexuality, I found “Our Mutual Joy” to be breathtaking in its summary dismissal of thousands of years of Judeo/Christian belief and teaching regarding homosexual behavior - not to mention the virtually unanimous judgment of societies throughout history in defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

That fundamental understanding regarding marriage is reflected by the 29 states that have passed constitutional amendments and the additional 15 states that have passed laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

But this overwhelming conviction is evidently of little consequence to Newsweek, which cobbled together a list of specious pro-homosexuality arguments similar to what I encountered a quarter of a century ago. They were unconvincing then, and have not improved with age. For those interested in the other side of this issue - which Newsweek inexcusably failed to provide - an outstanding treatment of the subject is Prof. Robert A. J. Gagnon, The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics, which makes short work of the tendentious pabulum served up by “Our Mutual Joy.”

Review: The Tale of Despereaux

by Family Research Council

December 19, 2008

On Saturday this reviewer had the opportunity to be the only unaccompanied adult in a theater full of parents and tots to see the new Universal release The Tale of Despereaux. The movie is an adaptation of the book by Kate DiCamillo, which came highly recommended by my almost 15-year-old son, who had warm memories of it from his youth but who was, apparently, concerned about being seen in a theater filled with children small enough to have to peep at the screen over the back of the seats in front of them.  I had no such concern, which tells you something about me.  Having not read the book or seen any comments from Ms. DiCamillo before writing my own, I cannot do any comparisons of the experiences of reading and viewing this family fare.  First of all, the film is indeed family fare, having no scatological moments and being blissfully free of any references to bodily functions as substitutes for actual wit.

As regards wit, this animated film is strong on both a visual and verbal level, spinning its interest around the trope of a young mouse whose intention to be anything but mousy turns his fear-driven world upside down.  Young Despereaux Tilling, the swashbuckling rodent, is physically the most delicate creature in the movie, possessed of both absurdly outsized ears and a romantically outsized nature.  He is driven to take on a “quest” that, while executed within the confines of a single castle, has all the scope of Arthurian legend: a lost item of great value (prize soup, in this case), an abject King mourning the loss of his beloved queen, a beautiful princess (voiced by Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame) who waits sadly for the return of both sunlight and rain to her indifferent world, and plotters and villains by the score, including the malevolent and ravenous denizens of “Ratworld,” who despise (and relish, with relish) all things mouse-like.

The film is built on the steady virtues of its heroic characters (in addition to Despereaux, there is the morally conflicted rat, Roscuro, heir to a long line of fairy tale figures whose actions result in unintended harm to the established order and unjust banishment) and the destructive ambitions of a jealous servant girl, Miggity Sow, who, it can be charitably said, yearns for a princess-hood that lies beyond her natural endowment.  This superbly animated film includes some scenes of genuine menace (cat takes the hindmost) that younger children will remember in their dreams, genuine pathos (the servant girl is handed over as a baby to a mean life that wounds her heart and spurs her acts of cruelty), and genuine tenderness (a princess’s gentle kiss) that lingers in the mind.

The voices are supplied by a Hollywood and United Kingdom A-list of talent, and the music, while derivative of other orchestral work, is both professional and appropriate.  Sigourney Weaver provides a wry narration that contains much of the film’s humor, as do the sequences of Despereaux’s fretful parents, who worry that their tiny son’s lack of cravenness will undo the pact of timidity that has become their way of life (in this the movie has relevance to elements of our risk-avoidant culture that would ban such things as kickball in the schoolyard).  Finally, Despereaux is a reader, and he finds his inspiration in tales of courage and selflessness, written in glorious script with bold illustrations in the style of N.C Wyeth that echo in Despereaux’s mind’s eye.  A film that calls viewers back to the written word, and to what those words can do to evoke images, stir courage and instill virtue, is on the right path to a timeless message.

The Tale of Despereaux contains nothing offensive, is rated G, and has no specific religious content.  It opens Friday, December 19 nationwide.

Bill Clinton creates a conflict at State

by Family Research Council

December 19, 2008

It appears that some of former President Bill Clinton’s donors to his foundation are raising some eyebrows on how it will affect his wife’s new role as President-elect Obama’s Secretary of State. According to the AP:

Saudi Arabia and other foreign governments gave at least $46 million, while corporate donors included the Blackwater security firm that protects U.S. diplomats in Iraq . . .

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gave $10 million to $25 million to the foundation, and other government donors included Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica. The Dutch national lottery gave $5 million to $10 million . . .

The list also underscores ties between the Clintons and India, a connection that could complicate diplomatic perceptions of whether Hillary Clinton can be a neutral broker between India and neighboring Pakistan in a region where Obama will face an early test of his foreign policy leadership.

Amar Singh, a donor in the $1 million to $5 million category, is an Indian politician who played host to Bill Clinton on a visit to India in 2005 and met Hillary Clinton in New York in September to discuss an India-U.S. civil nuclear agreement.

Two other Indian interests gave between $500,000 and $1 million each.

Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei and Oman gave $1 million to $5 million each.

Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid gave $1 million to $5 million.

Friends of Saudi Arabia and the Dubai Foundation each gave $1 million to $5 million, as did the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office.

China Overseas Real Estate Development and the U.S. Islamic World Conference each gave $250,000 to $500,000.

No. 97 on the Forbes billionaire list, Ethiopian-Saudi business tycoon Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi.

Issam Fares, a former deputy prime minister of Lebanon.

Lukas Lundin, chairman of oil, gas and mining businesses including Tanganyika Oil Company Ltd., an international oil and gas exploration and production company with interests in Syria, and Vostok Nafta Investment Ltd., an investment company that focuses on Russia and other former Soviet republics.

Change Watch Backgrounder: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton

by Constance Mackey

December 18, 2008

POSITIONUNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE

NOMINEE:  Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.)

Born:  October 26, 1947

Family:  Husband - 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton; daughter, Chelsea Clinton

Occupation:  Senator from the State of New York

Education:  undergraduate degree from Wellesley College; J.D., Yale Law School ‘73

Political Career:  Following law school Hillary Clinton was a Congressional legal counsel in the Nixon impeachment trials.  Married Bill Clinton in Arkansas in 1975 and became the First Lady of the State of Arkansas when her husband was elected Governor.  She was named the first female partner at the Rose Law Firm in 1979.  She was active in a number of organizations regarding child welfare and sat on the board of Wal-Mart and several other corporations.  When her husband became President, she used her role as First Lady to launch her own initiative, the Clinton health care plan, which failed to gain approval from the Congress in 1994, 1997, and 1999.  She was the only First Lady to be subpoenaed, testifying before a federal grand jury as a consequence of the Whitewater controversy in 1996.  She was elected as a U.S. senator from New York State in 2000 and was re-elected in 2006.  She ran for President in 2008.  [source]

Life Issues:  On all issues of life, Planned Parenthood has its team in place with President Obama at the top and Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.  Hillary Clinton is pro-abortion on all fronts.  She will be influential in forcing Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) legislation that will, with a stroke of the President’s pen, turn back all progress in protecting innocent life that has been made over the past 36 years since Roe v Wade.  Sen. Clinton has been an original cosponsor of FOCA in the past two years.  Addressing the international women’s conferences in Cairo she established her position on abortion as a “basic right” in 1994.  Five years later she addressed an international conference called Cairo Plus Five at The Hague and reaffirmed this position, as well as her support for restoration of U.S. tax support for the United Nations Population Fund.  Clinton has stated her opposition to forced abortion and use of family planning and contends that the UNFPA, which has been barred from U.S. support because of a Presidential finding of participation in China’s forced one-child policy, is cooperating with Chinese officials on voluntary measures and deserves support.  

The current Bush administration has made certain that U.S. foreign assistance, through the Mexico City Policy, does not encourage abortion and abortion referral as an American export.  This policy is certain to change under an Obama-Clinton foreign policy regime.  Adrienne Germain, president of the International Women’s Health Coalition, says, “Without spending a penny more, the new administration can do an enormous amount just by standing strong for the human rights of women and for the kinds of actions that are not simply needed but that countries time and time again - since the Universal Declaration on Human Rights - have agreed to,”  We can expect to see abortion policy advanced as a “human right” following the swearing in of Barack Obama and confirmation of Secretary of State Clinton.  “The rights approach has not been reflected in [Bush administration] policy,” says Jamila Taylor from the Center for Health and Gender Equity.  “Do it from a human rights perspective, not even just a reproductive rights perspective.  ‘Human rights’ runs the gamut of issues - access to education, income generation - all the things that make women vulnerable or empowered around the world.”  Taylor and Germain will play major roles with the State Department under Hillary Clinton and they are prepared to use all international documents in the promotion of abortion.  The Secretary of State can set administration policy on HIV/AIDS and the office of the Coordinator on AIDS is situated in the State Department, meaning the Secretary of State could push the office to make gender concerns a priority in PEPFAR funding. [source]

Senator Clinton voted twice in Congress against the ban on Partial-Birth Abortion.  She led the fight along with Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to force the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow abortifacients to be sold in pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription.  She also supported legislation to give teens access to “emergency contraceptives.”  Clinton supports expansion of the current federal policy so that more lines of stem cells can be experimented upon, namely those derived from the killing of human embryos. [source]

Human Sexuality & Marriage:  Sen. Clinton is supported by homosexual organizations like the Human Rights Campaign.  She steps away from saying she supports gay marriage but uses the term “civil unions with fully equality of benefits.”  “I believe in full equality of benefits, nothing left out.  From my perspective there is a great likelihood of us getting to that point in civil unions or domestic partnerships and that is my very considered opinion.”  [source]

Clinton voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment and she supports the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and supports allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military, which would require amending the Uniform Code of Military Justice that establishes penalties for certain sexual acts outside marriage.  “It hurts all our troops, and this, to me, is a matter of national security,” she said to a group of HRC supporters.  Clinton has said she would work to pass a federal law outlawing employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and she would work to extend benefits to the partners of federal employees. [source]  She supports and co-sponsored legislation to expand Medicaid benefits to the special class of HIV-positive homosexuals and she supports “hate crime” (thought crime) legislation.  Clinton supports gay adoption. [source]

Judges/Constitution:  Senator Clinton in railing against the Roberts Court asserted the need for a closer tie between Congress and the courts.  In an address to the American Constitution Society in New York on February 27, 2004 she said, “I believe it is time for Congress to reassert itself, and I am pleased to report that Senator Ted Kennedy and I this week introduced a bill called ‘FAIRNESS: The Civil Rights Act of 2004.’  It is an effort to realign the balance between Congress and the courts by responding to recent decisions that have unduly narrowed existing laws.  The bill restores the ability of individuals to seek relief from discriminatory practices in federally funded programs…”  Clearly the bill is intended to impose legislative power over them when they construe a law more narrowly than some in Congress prefer.  She stood in strong opposition to numerous Bush cabinet and court appointees. [source]

Religious Freedom:  While Senator Clinton supported the Workplace Religious Freedom Act (which was written to protect civil rights laws and require employers to make “reasonable accommodations” for their employees to practice their faith in the work environment), she supports ENDA (the Employment Non-Discrimination Act) which would force certain religious entities to hire and promote individuals irrespective of their adherence to the moral tenets of the employer.

Health Care:  This is an area in which Senator Clinton plays out all her issues regarding abortion.  In 1993 her health plan included RU-486 and widely available abortion.  In response to the plan as a clear conduit for expanded abortion, Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) attached an amendment to the bill allowing for a “conscience exemption” in which doctors and hospitals would not be forced to perform abortions.  One of President Bill Clinton’s first acts in office was to push the RU-486 abortion pill regimen to market through an expedited FDA approval process that was criticized by pro-lifers as too quick for the safety of the women who would take the pill.  Injuries and even deaths have resulted from hemorrhage, septic infection and other problems due to or masked by the drug’s action.

On the fourth day of the Clinton presidency, January 23, 1993, the 20th anniversary of Roe v Wade, Bill Clinton signed a series of executive orders undoing the policies of the Reagan era relating to abortion.  This was done at the advice of his wife.  In her view, the milestone anniversary of Roe v Wade was the perfect opportunity to move the new presidency on course in terms of “women’s rights” and signal that what she termed “the religious right” had lost its dominance regarding abortion policy.  [source]

In the year 2009 it is clear that in her new and even more powerful position as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton will deal the country similar if not identical setbacks for the sanctity of innocent human life.
