The Supreme Court on Friday said it will hear the case of a transgender student who was born female but is seeking the right to use boys' bathroom in a Virginia high school.
Gavin Grimm, a student from Gloucester High School in southeastern Virginia, was initially allowed by school administrators to use the boy's bathroom.
The school board later adopted a policy requiring students to use facilities corresponding to their birh sex, but said that "students with gender identity issues" would be allowed to use private bathrooms. more >>

A woman who revealed to the Rev. Billy Graham that her past abortion is now causing her to feel deep guilt and sorrow every time she sees children has asked if those feelings will ever subside.
"Maybe some women can go through an abortion and never feel guilty, but I'm not one of them. I feel terrible over what I did, and every time I drive by a school playground I'm almost consumed with grief. Will I ever get over this?" the unnamed woman asked in a question-and-answer column published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Thursday.
Graham responded that while what she did "was wrong in God's eyes," she needed to know that God "has not rejected you or abandoned you." more >>

After reversing his lifelong opposition to assisted suicide two years ago, archbishop emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa, and Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu, revealed Thursday that he would like to have assisted suicide as an option if he needs it and urged Christian leaders to support the option for the terminally ill.
Writing on the eve of his 85th birthday in an op-ed for The Washington Post, Tutu explained that as he has grown closer to the time when he knows he will eventually die, he has become more convinced that people deserve just as much dignity in death as they expect in life.
"Just as I have argued firmly for compassion and fairness in life, I believe that terminally ill people should be treated with the same compassion and fairness when it comes to their deaths. Dying people should have the right to choose how and when they leave mother Earth. I believe that, alongside the wonderful palliative care that exists, their choices should include a dignified assisted death," Tutu wrote. more >>
