SAHRC Report Confirms Human Rights Violations at Mavericks
The SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has now submitted a report to the High Court following an investigation into the Cape Town “strip club” Mavericks. The report confirms the suspected human rights violations that were exposed in the Cape High Court battle, but we are disappointed that the report was not conclusive on whether these abuses constituted human trafficking.
In 2012 the Western Cape High Court ordered the SAHRC to probe Mavericks’ inhumane employment conditions. In the final section of judgment, Judge Desai said there was some concern about the living conditions and arrangement of these so-called “exotic dancers”, which could constitute human trafficking.
This was after Mavericks had taken the Department of Home Affairs to court over their refusal to grant certain corporate visas to Mavericks.
Religious Freedom Victories
Victory for pro-lifers in the USA
Yesterday (31 June 2014), the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Christian-owned Hobby Lobby Stores, upholding their religious freedom to not pay for abortion-causing contraceptives for their employees’ health care plans.
The new government health-care mandate that is a part of Obamacare, will force all companies to pay for contraceptives for their employees, many of which cause abortions.
This sets an important precedent for other American company owners who are pro-life. The decision is also a clear defeat for the abortion lobby and its radical White House allies. Most important of all – lives will be saved.
Media Release: Schoolgirl 'Crush Porn' Paid Rape Rape With the Camera Running (18 June 2014)
Obscene and Cruel
The recent scandal exposed in Cape Town newspapers involving local schoolgirls filmed performing sexual acts mixed with cruel acts of insects and fish being crushed, is shocking, but not surprising considering the prevalence of porn in the media, says Taryn Hodgson, author of Porndemic and International Co-ordinator of the Christian Action Network.
“My book Porndemic, details how, since the legalisation of porn in 1996, South Africa has become more pornified than anyone could have predicted. Children are not only viewing porn, but now do not even think twice about being payed for filmed sexual acts, or producing their own porn videos.”
