Summit County Jail

Natasha Boggs, 24, is accused of striking and killing two Coventry Middle School students while texting and driving in Coventry Township, Ohio, according to The Washington Post.

Many are mourning the death of the two teens, Taylor Galloway and Amber Thoma, both 14. GoFundMe pages were set up for both students to fund their funerals and support their families. Both students were set to graduate eighth grade. The school postponed the ceremony after their deaths, according to WKYC.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Boggs was Texting and Driving When She Struck the Students, Police Say

Authorities say that Boggs was texting on her phone when she struck the students on May 28 at about 4:45 p.m. while driving north on South Main Street in her 1999 Ford Escort, according to Canton Rep. She allegedly traveled over the fog line and struck the students along the edge of the road.

The Akron Beacon Journal said that vehicles on the road travel north on a single lane and only about a foot of pavement separates the white edge line on the right of the grass. The speed limit was 40 mph.

Galloway was pronounced dead at the scene while Thoma was transported to Akron Children’s Hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to the news outlet. A 15-year-old boy was also seriously injured and taken to Children’s Hospital. A fourth boy in the group was uninjured.

The news outlet said Boggs was charged July 14 with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and a count of tampering with records, both of which are third-degree felonies. She was also charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, one count of vehicular assault, both of which are first-degree misdemeanors, as well as one count of marked lanes violation, a third-degree misdemeanor; and texting while driving, a minor misdemeanor. She was jailed at Summit County Jail.

Summit County Sheriff’s Inspector Bill Holland confirmed to Canton Rep that Boggs was allegedly texting at the time of the crash, but didn’t alleged that it caused her to go over the fog lane and strike the students. He alleged:

The investigation revealed she was texting while driving. I’ll leave it at that.

He also found that there were allegedly “things done on her cellphone after the accident,” which is where the tampering with evidence charge comes from.

The Washington Post said that court records don’t indicate if Boggs has an attorney. The Daily Mail said that her first court appearance has not yet been scheduled.


2. Taylor Galloway Wanted to be a Video Game Programmer

According to an obituary from Newcomer Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Galloway was an avid gamer and wanted to become a video game programmer. She also enjoyed basketball, playing the clarinet in the school band, and participating in the Anime Club.

The funeral home said that she “never met a stranger.”

She had a gift for making everyone feel comfortable in her presence. She was fiercely loyal to her friends and would stand up for anyone who needed help. She was one of a kind and will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her.

She had a sister, Alissa Galloway, as well as her two parents, Edward and Angela Galloway. The funeral service was held on June 3.


3. Amber Thoma Had a “Heart of Gold”

Amber Thoma.

In Cox-McNulty Funeral Home’s obituary of Thoma, they said she was “stunningly beautiful inside and out.”

She had an infectious smile, contagious laugh and a heart of gold.

They also write that she had a serious passion for basketball and also enjoyed softball and hanging out with her countless friends. She also looked up to her best friend and brother, Alan, and was admired by her two younger sisters, Ava and Alyssa.

Amber’s brother, Christian, was at her side as she was dying in the Children’s Hospital.

“She just loved life,” Christian told WKYC. “She’s an outgoing person. I just loved her to death. I think I’m still in shock about the whole situation.”

The funeral service was held on June 2.


4. GoFundMe Pages Were Created for Both Girls

Two GoFundMe pages were set up, one for Galloway and one for Thoma, to fund their funerals and support their families.

The page for Galloway was created by Chloe Thoma on behalf of Galloway’s family. She claims that her cousin was involved in the accident. The page has currently raised $1,825 by 48 people in one month.

Another page for Galloway was created by Tiffany Howe-Fowler to raise money for shirts to be worn at a party in Galloway’s honor. Howe-Fowler said that Galloway was a very bright and great young woman she had the pleasure to get to meet and know. The page raised $195 by four people in one month.

The page for Thoma was set up by Laura Lynann McBride, who said she was a childhood friend of Thoma in the page’s description.

How can I begin to tell you all the bright light that Amber brought into this world? Full of life and loved by so many. Anyone who got a chance to know Amber couldn’t help but to fall in love with her. She had an infectious smile and a laugh that could carry though a house… Our hearts are all heavy grieving the loss of our beautiful brown-eyed-girl.

She set up the page on behalf of Thoma’s family and all of the funds will go straight to them. Her family thanked everyone for all their love and support. The page currently has $7,355 raised by 96 people in one month.


5. Texting While Driving Still Happens Despite Laws to Prevent It

Currently, 47 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands all ban text messaging for all drivers, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. 14 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico all completely ban all hand-held devices from being used while driving.

However, texting while driving is still a problem. The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use leads to 1.6 million car crashes a year. Nearly 330,000 injuries occur from texting and driving each year. 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the U.S. is caused by texting and driving. It’s also six times more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk.

According to Stop the Texts Stop the Wrecks, there were 3,477 people killed and an estimated 391,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2015. 27 percent of distracted drivers and 33 percent of the distracted drivers that were using cell phones in fatal crashes are in their 20s.

THE GAY/ LESBIAN AGENDA
.
THE GAY/ LESBIAN AGENDA FREQUENTLY POSES AS A TRANSGENDERED AGENDA AND MEME (and… the Gay/ Lesbian Agenda/ Meme, and the Transgendered Agenda/ Meme, not to be confused with the “Gay/ Lesbian Transexual Agenda/ Meme”, the “Gay/ Lesbian Transexual Gender Re-assignment Surgery Agenda/ Meme”, and the “Transvestite Agenda/ Meme”!… which are other matters, altogether!)!
.
ALL GAYS/ LESBIANS WERE NOT SIMPLY “BORN THAT WAY”!… AND!… JUST AS ALL TRANSEXUALS WERE NOT “BORN THAT WAY”!
.
Such thinking, would suggest that there’s no such thing as “FREE WILL”/ “CHOICE” when it comes to sexual orientation (the TRULY TRANSGENDERED, being the exception to this!)! And again!… not to be confused with those who are transexual!… or!… transexuals who have “CHOSEN” “Gender Re-assignment Surgery (AND!… DESPITE EVIDENCE OF ANY PROVEN BIOLOGICAL/ GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO BEING “BORN THAT WAY”!… AND POSSESSING A TRULY “TRANSGENDERED BIO-SEXUAL ORIENTATION”!)”!
.
THE RATIONALE FOR “TRANSGENDERED GENDER RE-ASSIGNMENT SURGERY” IS NOT SYNONYMOUS!… AND IS NOT TO BE MADE SYNONYMOUS!… WITH “GAY/ LESBIAN TRANSEXUAL GENDER RE-ASSIGNMENT SURGERY”!
.
For!… it’s one thing for a six year old boy to want to cut off his genitals due to an overwhelming biological (hormonal) tendency to femininity!… but!… it’s quite another issue, to do so, based on a series of “familially-based, peer-based, or socially-based behavioral influences (and!… on many occasions!… due to incidents of ‘incest-based, peer-based, or stranger-based SEXUAL ABUSE’!– whether as children, and/ or, as adults!)”!
.
So… the question, is:… “Is one ‘coming out’ to reveal one’s gay/ lesbian ‘CHOICE’ OF ORIENTATION (i.e., a ‘CHOICE’ based on whatever ‘NURTURE-BASED/ non-biological’ circumstances may have led one to one’s resolve!)!… or!… is one anxious to end the REAL MENTAL/ EMOTIONAL PAIN of hiding a TRULY ‘BIOLOGICALLY-BASED CONDITION’ THAT ONE HAS HAD– AND HAVE!– NO CONTROL OVER (AND WHICH MAY HAVE LED ONE– IS LEADING ONE!– TO THE POINT OF SELF-HARM!… OR!– WORSE!– SUICIDE!)?”
.
If it’s the former… fine!… THAT’S ONE’S “CHOICE”!… BUT (and… if it was one’s “FREE CHOICE”!), DON’T THEN, HAVE ONE’S SELF– AND/ OR US!– BELIEVE, THAT ONE’S DECISION TO COME FORWARD WAS BASED ON SOME BIOLOGICAL/ GENETIC PRECONDITION THAT “PREEMPTED” ONE’S “TRUE DECISIONMAKING (I.E., THAT ONE WAS ‘BORN THAT WAY’!… OR HAD NO ‘FREE CHOICE’ IN THE MATTER!)”! AND!… IF ONE’S “WOULD-BE CHOICE” WAS “PREEMPTED” BY WAY OF SOMEONE ELSE’S MANIPULATION OF ONE’S “FREE WILL (E.G., BY WAY OF AN ABUSER!)”!… AND, ONE HAS SUFFERED– AND/ OR IS SUFFERING!– MENTAL/ EMOTIONAL PAIN AS A RESULT OF SOMEONE ELSE’S PAST– AND/ OR PRESENT!– MANIPULATION OF ONE’S OTHERWISE “FREE WILL”!… THAT MANIPULATION DOES NOT EQUATE TO BEING “BORN THAT WAY”! AND, TO HAVE BEEN ABUSED, AND TO THEN CAPITULATE TO THE ABUSE AND ONE’S ABUSER, OR ABUSERS, IS TO NEGATE RESPECT FOR ONE’S SELF, AND TO GRANT FREEDOM TO AN ABUSER, OR ABUSERS TO ABUSE OTHERS! AND SO!… AND AS SUCH!… ONE MUST BEGIN TO SORT OUT– HONESTLY!– WHAT HAS HAPPENED (AND/ OR IS HAPPENING!) TO ONE’S SELF!… AND TO SEEK TO EITHER ACCEPT A TRULY “TRANSGENDERED STATE”!… OR!… SEEK TO ESTABLISH WHETHER ONE’S “WILL” IN ONE’S SEXUAL ORIENTATION, WAS “PREEMPTED”– AND/ OR IS BEING “PREEMPTED”!– BY ANOTHER, OR OTHERS!… OR NOT!

Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!

STUDY FINDS NO SCIENTIFIC BASIS FOR TRANSGENDERISM
.
.
This article is by courtesy of Raven Clabough, of The New American, of Wednesday, August 24, 2016
.
The Left often likes to use science — or rather, a modified version of science — in arguments related to atheism, evolution, abortion, climate change, etc. But just how it will deal with a new scientific study on transgenderism remains to be seen. According to a new report published in The New Atlantis journal, transgenderism — the latest hot button social justice “ism” — is not supported by science.
.
The report was co-authored by former Chief of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University Dr. Paul McHugh and Arizona State University Professor of Statistics and Biostatistics Lawrence Mayer. They concluded that “gender identity” is not separate from biological sex.
.
“Examining research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence,” the report prefaced.
.
“The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence,” stated the researchers.
.
This is not exactly groundbreaking news to those who exercise common sense, of course. Simply because an individual purports to identify as something doesn’t make it true, particularly if it is biologically impossible. It does not take a scientific study to confirm that a person who identifies as a horse, for example, is not a horse, or one who identifies as a chair is not in fact a chair. But the study should provide some weight to the common sense approach to transgenderism, while simultaneously exploding the beliefs of some social justice warriors who may have difficulty reconciling this scientific study with their own sense of reality.
.
The New Atlantis report is sure to provoke some controversy, as it challenges a number of theories that have been readily accepted by the general public in recent years, including what the authors dub the “born that way” hypothesis: “The notion that homosexuality or heterosexuality is in any given person unchangeable and determined entirely apart from choices, behaviors, life experiences, and social contexts.” According to the authors, that view is not “well-supported by research.”
.
The authors also take issue with the criteria found in the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) for diagnosis of gender dysphoria in children, and the interventions used in the treatment of gender dysphoria despite the lack of scientific evidence behind them.
.
At particular issue for the researchers is how transgenderism is being foisted on America’s youth, as the scientists note that most children outgrow gender confusion, and efforts to advocate transgender acceptance are sure to create further confusion. “Children are a special case when addressing transgender issues. Only a minority of children who experience cross-gender identification will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood,” the report stated.
.
“There is little scientific evidence for the therapeutic value of interventions that delay puberty or modify the secondary sex characteristics of adolescents, although some children may have improved psychological well-being if they are encouraged and supported in their cross-gender identification,” wrote the researchers. “There is no evidence that all children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behavior should be encouraged to become transgender.”
.
The report argued that enabling acceptance of transgenderism through medical intervention is particularly harmful. “An area of particular concern involves medical interventions for gender-nonconforming youth. They are increasingly receiving therapies that affirm their felt genders, and even hormone treatments or surgical modifications at young ages,” the authors observed.
.
These sentiments are similar to those found in a position statement released by the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) on March 21 entitled “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” in which the writers observed that any policies that foster the belief that gender dysphoria is anything beyond a psychological problem are in fact harmful.
.
The authors of that position statement made several scientific observations, including that human sexuality “is an objective biological binary trait.” Children who use hormones to attempt to mimic a sex that is not their own have a number of dangerous physical and mental risks, the position statement advised, adding that “conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful” can be classified as child abuse.
.
According to The New Atlantis study, in fact, conditioning anyone to accept impersonation of the opposite sex via surgery or chemical influences is harmful. The authors observe that adults who choose to have sex-reassignment surgeries have “a higher risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes.” They cite a study that found that sex-“reassigned individuals were about 5 times more likely to attempt suicide and about 19 times more likely to die by suicide.”
.
Interestingly, PJ Media did a piece earlier this week on some of the real-life victims of what it dubbed the transgender “cult.” These” victims” were encouraged to embrace their gender confusion in their youth and are now living with the repercussions of those decisions. “I am a real, live 22-year-old woman, with a scarred chest and a broken voice, and five o’clock shadow because I couldn’t face the idea of growing up to be a woman. That’s my reality,” Cari Stella confessed in a YouTube video. “Gender was done to me, gender was traumatizing to me, I don’t want anything to do with it anymore,” she declared. She admitted, “When I was transitioning, I felt a strong desire — what I would have called a ‘need’ at the time — to transition.”
.
Stella now contends that her transition only made things worse. “It can be damn hard to figure out that the treatment you’re being told is to help you is actually making your mental health worse. Testosterone made me even more dissociated than I already was,” she said.
.
Stella is a prime example of an observation made by the authors in The New Atlantis study. They wrote, “The potential that patients undergoing medical and surgical sex reassignment may want to return to a gender identity consistent with their biological sex suggests that reassignment carries considerable psychological and physical risk.” The report ultimately concluded that politics and culture have been far too influential in the understanding of transgenderism and LGBT-related mental health problems, and encouraged individuals to take a more scientific approach to these issues.
.
The researchers wrote, “While there is much controversy surrounding how our society treats its LGBT members, no political or cultural views should discourage us from understanding the related clinical and public health issues and helping people suffering from mental health problems that may be connected to their sexuality.”
.
They readily admitted that better research is required to determine the best ways to help lower the rates of poor mental health outcomes in the LGBT community, but noted that despite the scientific uncertainty behind sexual orientation and gender identity, “drastic interventions” continue to be prescribed and delivered to patients.
.
In June, McHugh noted that despite the lack of biological or physical basis for sexual identity, scientists struggled to persuade others that transgenderism is a psychological disorder because “there is a deep prejudice in favor of the idea that nature is totally malleable.”
.
The authors of the article welcomed “spirited responses” to their report, and it is likely they will be barraged with exactly that.
