    Voices InJustice - Teen Pregnancy, becoming young parents or playing house

    in Current Events

    -Voices InJustice with host Trish McKnight; Sept 13th @ 6pm eastern/5pm central/3pm pacific time. Join me for another great broadcast discussion brought to you by, Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery community outreach broadcast radio. Our call in number 929-477-3163, open chatroom & online discussion. 

    Over the last two decades teen pregnancy has declined greatly due to oral contraception and education, along with a more open dialogue with parents. However, there is still on average 26.5/per 1000. There is a huge variation in race, state of residence (with southern states being most prominent). If your teen had an early pregnancy do you know what services are available to help them? What about housing, income, education, and ability to provide a sustaining safe life for their children? 

    There are many issues surrounding Teen Pregnancy, and tonight we are talking about this still hot topic. If you are grandparents to an early teen pregnancy, if you're a friend to someone who had an early teen pregnancy, someone who has more than one child in their teen years; these are all topics open for our phone lines. We do hope you'll join this conversation. Do we discuss openly about contraception, the use of condoms for disease prevention, and the ongoing support needed for these children, as well as the education & steady work, rather than welfare. Do our teens really know what they're getting into with sexual relationships? Are they prepared for the consequences of their actions? Are you finding as grandparents you are providing key early support & assistance for these children? Do you have open dialogue about sex & protection with your children?

    These shows are for informative purposes & discussions, they are not intended as any form of legal, medical, or therapeutic advice. Join in w/ Trish about InJustices every Sunday

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice Radio with Trish McKnight; Owner/CEO Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery; Creator 'Family Crimes & Terroristic Abuse Act'; Author 'My Justice', as well as a mentor who has assisted or supported hundreds of men & women trying to work through trauma, grief, depression.

We are here to share your side of the story. We open our phone lines at 929-477-3163 and our chatroom is always a busy place to share with other listeners. Join in this very important program as we discuss Medical Treatments & Medications for your child/teen. Are you ready to be your child's medical advocate?

    Almost weekly there is a new FDA approved regulation for a even more powerful medication being approved for children. On this topic I have a some very serious concerns. They have now approved Medical Marijuana for children; Oxycotin and many other opioid medications for pain treatment. They approve many benzodiazoprine medications to reduce behavioral issues. Is our healthcare system really researching all the underlying issues that could be affecting the child's condition or behavioral problems? Do you dissway them from discussing certain family related topics or are you completely honest about the daily functions of your child's home life? Is there underlying stress, constant negative chaos or arguing, violent threats, bullying by a parent or parental partner? 

    Your side of the story matters in this broadcast. Join callers & chatters as we open the discussion concerning medications & medical treatment for their child/teen. We are an entertainment & awareness program; we do not provide any professional, legal, medical, or therapeutic advice


  • Voices InJustice Radio - School is back in session - Education in America

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice Radio with Trish McKnight; Sharing your side of the story!! This is a community outreach broadcast of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. Sunday night, 9pm central time; join me friends as we discuss the issues of our nation's educational systems. Do you feel your child is SAFE at school? Is bullying a new concern as they progress in grades? Do you worry about teachers abusing or sexually approaching your child? Are they learning enough to help them succeed? What about racial issues, free meals, equal education for all children? Let's bring your concerns to the table; open the phone lines, and get our chatroom going with your thoughts about the good & bad of your child's school environment.

    On this special broadcast we want to know; what concerns you as they return to school? Today we have many issues in our school system. Required testing which many believe only checks the teacher's ability to educate our children, but it doesn't exactly show how or what our children are learning. Everyday they face challenges of bullying, drugs, violence and gangs. As parents we try to give them guidance and pray nothing distracts them from a healthy life building experience. We must realize that a child's challenges in our modern day society are nothing compared to any other generation. Parents & teens let's talk about your concerns, connecting as a united society to discuss how our school systems work across the country. 

    Call live at 929-477-3163, log into blog talk network and join chatroom discussion. Show starts at 9pm; let's hear your Voices of InJustice as we discuss our American Educational System. Remember to invite your friends and family for our community outreach broadcast by Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery with host & producer Trish McKnight; Music Marc Joseph Ludeman

  • Voices InJustice - Family/Parental Alienation, erasing your child's DNA

    in Current Events

    Welcome everyone to Voices InJustice Radio; a continuing outreach broadcast of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. We hope to bring you conversations that matter; discussing those acts of injustice around the world and in your neighborhood. There are many influences we begin making on our children's lives and it starts developing when we are children. What does your voice of injustice see in your news headlines, in your church, in your community, your schools and your homes? You are invited to join Trish every Sunday evening at 7pm eastern/6pm central/4pm pacific time. Our phone lines are always open to bring your voice of concern to the public platform, call us at 929-477-3163 or log into blogtalkradio.com and join the conversation in our chatroom. 

    Tonight we are discussing the effects parents make on their child's identity when they go through divorce, and then inflict alienation; a different type of child abuse. Think of erasing half of your child's DNA; is their other parent a 'BAD' person or are they actually suffering behavorial or emotional influences from their own childhood? Are we doing this because we only want them to be the part we create in them, as we fill their heart and head with negative identity about the other half of their DNA? If that other parent is truly impairing the positive path of your developing child, is it your duty to simply disconnect any/all contact, even the entire other half of your child's family? How does this enforced disconnection to their WHOLE family influence your child's behavioral & emotional wellness, possibly even their physical health?

    This broadcast does not provide any spcific professional advice, simply entertainment & public discussion. Invite family and friends as we inspire new ideas and create action for change together!! #VoicesEndingFamilyCrimes

    Voices InJustice talking STIGMA - Do others attach a stigma when they see you

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice with Trish every Sunday evening at 9pm central time. We are a radio network production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. A community outreach focus in awareness, prevention, and empowerment to overcome our many challenges; learning together how to change the centuries of human trauma and teach our children a better way for their future.

    Tonight we are discussing STIGMA - Share your voice by calling Trish @ (929) 477-3163 or join the online chatroom as we address the many societal stigma attached to persons without ever knowing who they really are. We see obesity, bikers, the color of skin, a nationality, or even the economically poor neighbor down the street and we all pass judgement as if we know their life, but do we or are we repeating what our parents taught us? What are we as parents today teaching our children in an America, or other country, where we have such an entire mixed community attending school with our children?

    This is a very hot topic with all that happens in our world. We have economic breakdown and battles rising around the world. Our kids watch the news and hear about two or three gang related shootings everyday. They attend shcools where the bullying by judgement causes children as young as 9 years old to take their own lives. Will we ever be able to live in a peaceful accepting society? Give your teen, your child, the individual ability to learn who people are before they see a color, a tatoo, an eating disorder, or a poor neglected child suffering to get through everyday and instantly attach the centuries of judgement. 

    Visit our website, www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com where we provide information to understand our taught human behaviors of mankinds worst nature. Our shows are for entertainment purposes only. Invite your friends & family to join in live!!

    The Strong Stance: The Injustice of Incarceration

    in LGBT

    From CeCe McDonald’s imprisonment for defending herself in an assault, to Laverne Cox’s portrayal as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black, to Jennicet Gutierrez’s White House protest of transgender detainee treatment in ICE custody. Today we have two guests joining us to discuss the current state of the American prison system, the concept of abolition and the reforms necessary to protect transgender and gender non-conforming prisoners.

    Prison Stats: The United States has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of the world's prisoners. (2014 stat) In 2010, the U.S. spent $80 billion on incarceration. (2014 stat) In 2012, one in every 108 adults was in prison or jail and one in 28 American children has a parent behind bars. (2014 stat).

    LGBT youth make up only 6 percent of the general population but represent 15 percent of people currently in juvenile detention. (http://www.advocate.com/commentary/2015/9/18/helping-queer-youth-affected-school-prison-pipeline) 40% of Transgender Prisoners Are Sexually Abused, which is 10 times the rate of prisoners in general. (https://transgenderequality.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/federal-survey-40-of-transgender-prisoners-are-sexually-abused-each-year/)


  • In The Streets with Beverley Smith: Criminal Injustice System (Episode 42)

    in Spirituality

    Jeremy "Bam" McDole was paralyzed and injured. The police who were called to help him shot him dead, right out of his wheelchair, on video for all to see. Terrell Day, 18, was suspected of shoplifting. He complained that he couldn't breathe. They ignored him repeatedly, until it was too late. He died. David Stojcevski was oulled over for a traffic ticket. Died in custody after 17 days in jail, without medical care, and after losing more than 50 pounds. In Fairfax County, VA, a black man is instructed to get out of the car and put his hands on the car. He complies. The video shows the officer tasers him regardless. The FBI will begin to collect more data on police shootings. Native Americans now have full legalization of marijuana on their terrorities. The latest Freddie Gray and Sandra Bland updates. And tales of more police abuses.
