    Have you ever wondered what happens to the people involved in tragic newsmaking stories after the spotlight is gone? Dr. Phil hears three stories of people struggling with the aftermath of having a dark moment in their lives reported on in the news. Sisters Ashley, Ebony, and Fallon say their lives were turned upside down when their younger brother, Jerome, was, according to them, falsely convicted of murder. Now, they say they can't figure out how to move forward. Then, Ian and Colleen say they are stuck after Ian was dubbed a hero for intervening in a shooting that tragically ended with one man losing his life. Ian says he has been struggling with feelings of guilt, grief, and frustration ever since, and that they have haunted even his happiest moments. And, Nancy says she thought she had dealt with her past sexual abuse and trauma but that it all came flooding back when she read a news article and saw that the person who she claims abused her was arrested for abusing other children – something she says she feels immense guilt over and even questions if she should be held responsible. Can Dr. Phil help these guests navigate their complex emotions and unusual circumstances?

    Dr. Phil discusses forced labor in prisons: should it end because it is punitive -- and even abusive -- or should it be seen as a productive way for some prisoners to spend their days and invest in their future? Jorge Renaud, director of Latino Justice, and Demico Boothe, author of 'Why Are There So Many Black Men In Prison?' discuss their experiences of being forced to work in the prison system. Tiheba Bain, founder of Women Against Mass Incarceration, says while she acquired certain skills in prison, prison labor is indentured servitude. In America, forced labor in the prison system is legal under Federal law, however, Bianca Tylek, founder and director of the non-profit advocacy organization Worth Rises, discusses why she believes it is wrong.

    The loneliness epidemic is real, and it's affecting younger people in startling numbers. A 2020 survey on loneliness found an increasing correlation between social media usage and feelings of loneliness. Another study found that young people express a statistically significantly greater degree of loneliness after 'conversations' on the Internet compared to face-to-face conversations. Dr. Phil talks with a group of Gen Zers and millennials who express their thoughts and emotions about their feelings of loneliness, including their struggles with the social stigma of sadness and feeling alone.

    Dr. Phil delves into the very sensitive topic of discrimination. The news has reported claims of discrimination against white people in university admissions, graduation ceremonies, and college welcome weeks. Similar claims have been made in the workplace. Political commentator and activist Candace Owens contends that reverse discrimination does exist, while Dr. Luke Wood and Dr. John Pascarella disagree. PragerU podcast host Amala Ekpunobi and activist Danielle D'Souza say they believe America is obsessed with race. Comedian Tyler Fischer claims he was discriminated against in the entertainment industry because of race, and school teacher Alexis discusses teacher layoffs in Minneapolis.

    Critics say that Americans pulling the 'victim card' seems to be at an all-time high. What are the forms of victimhood and types of people who have a victim mentality? What dangers does a trend toward over-sensitivity, negative thinking, playing the blame game, and entitlement pose for our society? Sam is a skateboarder and recent college graduate who is currently living in his van with his kitten in Los Angeles. He says he is not working and wonders how he is expected to remain positive when bad things just seem to happen to him all the time. Pastor James Ward, founder of INSIGHT Church and author of 'Zero Victim: Overcoming Injustice with a New Attitude,' says victimhood culture causes the alleged victims to bully others into accepting their ideologies, and we must start creating better, stronger people who do not see themselves as victims. Trauma therapist and author of 'Through The Glass,' Shannon Moroney, says even though she personally experienced an unbelievable tragedy, she does not believe in people believing they have no responsibility to take care of the wounds inflicted upon them. Shaunelle Curry, professor at CSU Long Beach, says Americans see many people's unresolved and unacknowledged historical pain playing out and wrongly call it 'victimhood.' She believes instead of criticizing people for airing their grievances, we should listen. Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman is a cognitive scientist and humanistic psychologist, founder and director of the Center for Human Potential, and co-author of 'Choose Growth: A Workshop For Transcending Trauma, Fear, And Self-Doubt,' with Jordyn Feingold. His 2020 article for Scientific American titled 'Unraveling The Mindset of Victimhood' was very popular, as he analyzed in an easy-to-understand way the groundbreaking Israeli study 'The Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood' by Rahav Gabay et al. What does Dr. Kaufman say he believes victimhood is linked to?

    Stories of innocent citizens being brutally attacked by complete strangers who have long and violent criminal histories have become all too common. Many claim these attacks are a result of soft-on-crime policies enacted by 'woke' and 'progressive' district attorneys and other elected officials. They claim this pro-criminal agenda emboldens criminals and allows them to stay out of jail and prison while leaving residents unsafe and victims abandoned. Others contend criminal justice reforms are needed to fix a broken and unjust criminal justice system. Dr. Phil has a powerful discussion with people on both sides of this issue. Plus, Dr. Phil speaks with Olympic volleyball medalist Kim Glass and former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Irene Lee, who both claim they were attacked by the same man, a reported violent career criminal, who they say should never have been allowed to walk the streets. And, Dr. Phil speaks with a current Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney who claims his boss has 'hijacked' the DA's office and placed the rights of criminals above those of victims.

    We've been warned that social media is designed to hook people in, and TikTok's especially advanced algorithms may make it more addictive than other apps. But, we usually associate these dangers with children. What about parents and spouses becoming victims, too? Austin says his mother, Shannon, is constantly on TikTok, posting videos some claim constitute bullying behavior. Anya, Shannon's former best friend, says she cut off contact with Shannon because of her social media posts. Shannon insists she just wants to share her point of view and exercise her First Amendment rights, even if it costs her relationships. Can Anya and Shannon repair their relationship? Then, meet 62-year-old Donna who fell in love and married her 33-year-old husband, Emmanuel, whom she met in Ghana. She says they are very happy, except for his 24/7 addiction to TikTok!

Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler, author of 'Influenced: The Impact of Social Media on Our Perception,' says his family had an intervention to make him realize he must give up his TikTok addiction. And, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Shefali discusses her latest book, 'The Parenting Map,' and advises the guests on how to move forward.

They say their daughters faced immense pressure to balance it all, something that many student-athletes face, but often don't express due to the stigma around mental health. All three families are pushing for change and more conversations about mental health on campus. Then, Thomas, a current student-athlete, shares his story of struggling with mental health as a D1 football player. He attempted to take his life but now shares his story as a message to others who may also be suffering alone.

    The number of young people who identify as transgender has nearly doubled in recent years. Some people say this is because the transgender community is more embraced, but others say teens are rushing to get medical treatments without counseling or knowing the facts. In some extreme cases, this can even lead to what's called 'detransition.' As a teen, Ryan transitioned from a female to a male but says she then realized she made an epic mistake, reversed her decision, and detransitioned to be female again. Over 20 years ago, Kara had medical treatments and later gender reassignment surgery and says policy has greatly changed. She says it's concerning that today, there are far less requirements for children seeking puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgery. However, Reece says he knew he was male as a small child, and these medical treatments saved his life as a teen. He says denying teens the right to these procedures is 'trans genocide.' Eli Erlick, Founder of Trans Student Educational Resources, adds that the percentage of people who detransition is small and the number one reason for detransitioning is transphobia. Neurologist and author of 'The End of Gender' Dr. Debra Soh studies this issue and says social acceptance is good, but the number of transitions have reflected people's skewed thinking. And, NewsNation Correspondent Rich McHugh weighs in to discuss what he has found after a lengthy investigation on the increased numbers of teen transitions in recent years.

She says the woman was claiming to be her birth mother and was insisting on reconnecting with her. However, Brooklyn Queen says there is absolutely no way this can be true because her mother, Kimberly, is her biological mother, and she was not adopted. Brooklyn's parents, Kimberly and Duke, say they have no idea why this woman believes their daughter is hers. Kimberly and Brooklyn Queen asked to take a DNA test in hopes that it would finally convince this woman that Kimberly is in fact Brooklyn Queen's mother. What do the results reveal?

    'Drop 20 pounds in two weeks,' 'Get the perfect six-pack and muscle definition,' 'Eat all you want but still lose weight!' 'Take these supplements for optimal health.' These days, celebrities, professional athletes, 'health' coaches, and influencers make fortunes and garner millions of followers and likes touting unorthodox – and often dangerous -- diets and health practices to achieve society's ideas of perfection and/or optimal wellness, and some people follow their idols and trends blindly. Meet John, who promotes the benefits of a raw animal product diet to his Instagram followers. Then, Jules not only follows a high-fruit raw vegan diet – but also feeds it to her 3-year-old daughter. Next, meet two women who were influenced to jump on one of the most popular new diet trends: taking a diabetes medication for weight loss. However, both landed in the hospital. And, Cameron, a young woman looking to lose weight fast who was influenced by social media to try the Keto diet to quench her sugar cravings, wound up in the E.R.

    Many of us watch strangers live their lives on social media instead of living our own. But when we scroll, what is actually real, and what is staged or highly manipulated? And, how does seeing photos of people mostly living their 'very best lives' affect our mental health? Amy, a mom and widow of 15 years, says she is so busy with work that she relies on social media for companionship. However, Amy admits she gets envious seeing others having a fabulous time while she's stuck being alone. Influencers Talitha and Megan admit that they have both staged and filtered photos so much that they don't portray their real lives. Megan says she found being an influencer so toxic for her mental health, she decided to take a social media break.

    School nurses administer more daily medication for ADHD than any other chronic health condition. In December 2022, the Drug Enforcement Agency warned that over prescription of ADHD medication could be as bad as the opioid crisis. Is medicating children for ADHD a troubling trend or an appropriate response? Megan says her 7-year-old son has always been a handful, and when she finally made an appointment to discuss this with his physician last summer, the recommendation was medication. Hear why she says she's worried and blames herself for his behavior. Then, Cassie and Carl say their 3-year-old twin boys were acting so wildly during an evaluation that their doctor said she hadn't seen a case of ADHD so bad in a long time. Now that the boys are medicated, what does Cassie say is her biggest worry? And, Dr. Daniel Amen, founder of the Amen Clinics and New York Times best-selling author, and psychiatrist Charles Sophy weigh in on whether kids are overdiagnosed and overmedicated for ADD and ADHD.

    The Murdaugh family were solicitors in South Carolina for three generations, leading prosecutions for their district and playing a key role in deciding which cases were prosecuted. The family was known for their position, power, and prestige. However, since 2015, personal injury attorney Alex Murdaugh and his family have been linked to a series of investigations for deaths, corruption, insurance fraud, defrauding clients, and now, murder.

    You've heard about polygamy and monogamy, but what about sologamy? Sologamy, also known as 'self-marriage' or 'self-partnering,' is a symbolic ceremony where a person commits to a meaningful and loving relationship with themselves and a promise to give themselves what they often seek from other people.Recently, Miley Cyrus' song 'Flowers' – about celebrating self-love after her divorce – became Spotify's most streamed song in a single week. It is said you can't love others until you love yourself first -- but is saying 'I do' to yourself going too far? Critics of sologamy say 'self-marriage' is narcissistic and makes a mockery of this special sacrament. Dr. Phil meets 30-year-old Danni, who says she spent $4,000 on her self-wedding; life coach and expert Sasha Cagen, who married herself at 40 and guides other women to marry themselves, and says she spent $100 on her self-wedding; and 50-year-old Sonya, who says she spent $15,000. Then, hear from John McEntee, Founder and CEO of 'The Right Stuff,' who says sologamy is selfish and marriage should be viewed as a sacred sacrament. Will anyone in Dr. Phil's audience marry themselves? Tune in as Dr. Phil discusses self-love.

    If you think only guilty people confess to crimes, think again. Innocent people are often convicted after they provide police with a false confession. What could possibly motivate an innocent person to confess to a crime they didn't commit? Atif Rafay claims he was forced into confessing to a crime he says he did not commit. In the summer of 1994, 17-year-old Atif was home from Cornell University, hanging out with his high school best friend, Sebastian Burns. On July 12, when they returned home sometime after 2 a.m., they say they walked into a brutal scene. Atif's parents and sister had all been bludgeoned to death. Atif, now 46, has been sitting in prison for 28 years serving three life sentences. Speaking to Dr. Phil from prison, Atif says two undercover cops posed as mobsters and lured the young men into thinking that they would be killed if Atif didn't confess to murdering his family. Dr. Phil dissects Atif's confession with his appellate attorney Daniel Woofter; attorney Laura Nirider, co-director of the Center on Wrongful Conviction; Dave Thompson, expert in interrogation training and certified forensic interviewer; and Innocence Project board member Jason Flom. Plus, documentary filmmaker and the director of Netflix's docuseries The Confession Tapes Kelly Loudenbergcovered Atif's story and tells Dr. Phil it was one of the hardest cases she investigated.

    The movies, supermarkets, gas stations, drugstores, hair salons, the end of a 5k run, and even children's birthday parties -- all places where you can buy or find alcohol. For many, a beer, a glass of wine, or a cocktail may be part of how they socialize, relax, or reward themselves after a hard day at work or looking after children. It's also glamorized on social media platforms, sold by celebrities, and pervasive in movies and TV. Dr. Phil speaks with four women, all on different journeys with alcohol. First, Michelle says she decided to become sober during the pandemic but recently started drinking again 'in moderation.' Erica says she has been sober for two years but admits to drinking a beer 'occasionally.' Alex says she has been happily sober for eight years but still occasionally questions if she could drink again. And, Devin says drinking is part of her daily ritual and 'who she is,' and she resents the shaming of the 'wine mom.' Also joining the conversation is Susan Stewart, Professor of Sociology at Iowa State University and author of 'On the Rocks: Straight Talk About Women and Drinking,' who says stereotypes about women who drink oversimplify the issue, and some may not even recognize the transition between moderation and problematic drinking habits.

    John Kinsel has been locked up for more than 26 years for a crime he says he did not commit -- raping, choking, and threatening to kill a child. About 30 years ago, when John was 22, he says he met and fell in love with a single mother of three, Adrienne. They moved in together 10 months after their first date, and Adrienne says John got the chance to play dad to Adrienne's three children. Some claim that didn't sit well with Adrienne's middle child, 9-year-old Alyssa. Alyssa has said John was strict and demanding, and she didn't like him. Alyssa now says she devised a plan to get rid of John; she says she lied when she accused John of sexually abusing her for years. Based on her testimony, John was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Nine years later, 18-year-old Alyssa walked into the District Attorney's office and said she wanted to recant her testimony -- why? With the help of her mother, her Aunt Stacy, and John's attorney, Justin Bonus, Allyssa says she's ready to tell Dr. Phil what really happened to her when she was a child. Alyssa tells Dr. Phil how much she regrets telling this lie that put an innocent man behind bars for life. But was she telling the truth then, or is she telling the truth now?

    Cece is a high school senior who says she became addicted to social media when she was 12 years old. She claims Instagram algorithms took her down a dark rabbit hole, which led to an eating disorder. Last year, Cece and her mother, Candace, filed a lawsuit against Meta, Instagram's parent company, accusing it of 'causing and contributing to a growing mental health crisis among children and teens.' They say the big social media companies have not been held accountable for what many experts warn is a connection between heavy social media use and mental health issues in children. Another mother, Linda, claims social media content delivered to her 23-year-old daughter through algorithms led to her eating disorder. And meet Ian, a father whose 14-year-old daughter's 2017 death was recently ruled a suicide resulting from 'depression and the negative effects of online content.'

However, 1 in 7 women will develop postpartum depression and anxiety after having a baby, and some women even develop postpartum psychosis. New moms may have fantasies of escaping their reality, panic attacks, hallucinations, and worst of all, may kill their children. Many women have no history of mental health issues and are too embarrassed to talk publicly about this, fearing they will be judged as bad moms. However, they all say it's time to discuss this openly and remove the 'baby blues' stigma, as the seriousness can go way beyond that.

    Have you heard the saying 'Men age like a fine wine but women age like a glass of milk?' Despite the fact that celebrities like Jane Fonda and Jamie Lee Curtis are redefining what it means to be a 'silver fox,' there is still a huge double standard when it comes to women and aging. Many women say when they hit a certain age, they feel invisible, washed up, and unwanted. In an open discussion, Dr. Phil finds out how women feel about the pressure of aging. Supermodel and writer Paulina Porizkova, 57, is famously candid on social media for shutting down those who think her face needs 'fixing' or that she should not be posing in a bikini at her age. Porizkova tells Dr. Phil that women need to embrace their wrinkles and their age. Sixty-year-old Tami says she's so self-conscious about her age she sometimes won't leave the house. Thirty-three-year-old Fifi says she's consumed by her fear of aging. And, 54-year-old Terry says between her throat wattle, age spots, wrinkles, and bifocals, it's impossible to look in the mirror and feel good. Plus, meet mother/daughter duo Elisa and Lily who are the co-founders of Stylelikeu, a website focused on self-acceptance. They are also the brains behind the documentary series 'What's Underneath Project,' where people, like Porizkova, talk about their vulnerabilities while slowly stripping down to their underwear.

    In October 2022, Dr. James Heaps, an obstetrician-gynecologist and oncologist at UCLA, was found guilty of five counts related to sexual assault and misconduct against several female patients. Former patients Melanie, Ellen, Gaby, and Nicole, are speaking out about the horrific abuse they claim they endured. Dr. Heaps is just one of many doctors that work in prestigious universities who have broken their Hippocratic Oath to 'do no harm.' Former University of Michigan football player Jon Vaughn shares his story of the abuse he claims he endured from Dr. Robert Anderson. He claims he is just one of thousands of his victims who were abused under the guise of 'medical care.' Former gymnast Trinae claims she was one of Dr. Larry Nassar's first victims of abuse. She claims he sexually abused her for years in plain sight. Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, the Michigan circuit court judge who sentenced Nassar and sent him to prison, says she will continue to fight to put white coat predators where they belong: behind bars.

    When minors violate the law, should parents be held responsible? Should prosecutors provide these juveniles with resources instead of putting them back on the streets with no punishment or locking them behind bars? Is putting a minor in jail helpful or harmful? Santiago claims his son, Bryce, ran over a police officer and crashed into a house, yet he has only been charged one time and never locked up. Santiago says the system is broken and he is fearful his son will be killed or end up dead unless he suffers some sort of consequence for his actions. Ashley says she has the opposite problem with the system; she claims her son is locked up for minor things, such as behavioral issues, which aren't crimes. Michelle claims the system has failed her as a parent because the law never helped with her son when he was a minor, and now that he is 18, he gets locked up. Alisa Blair, Policy Director at Pacific Juvenile Defenders Center, says she doesn't believe locking up minors helps their future. Former police officer Mo Canady and Judge Melisa Powers say they try to resort to school resources before locking a child up -- but sometimes, locking them up is the only answer.

    'Defund the Police!' It was a rallying cry in the wake of the tragic murder of George Floyd and a call to action against the undeniable brutality of some -- but not all -- police and the disproportionate targeting of black Americans in arrests, shootings and killings. Many say the sentiment was right but the slogan was misleading. Now, more than two years later, hear from citizens who say it has been a dangerous debacle that has led to unprecedented levels of crime and violence in their cities because law enforcement budgets were cut or diverted. However, others insist that's not true – they claim it's just a national misinformation campaign to divert attention from the real issues in their communities that not only need police protection but also protection from those charged with guarding their safety and security. So which is it? Dr. Phil has a passionate discussion with experts on both sides of the issue. It's an episode you don't want to miss.

    Throughout the years, many different social media challenges have emerged. The popularity of online challenges is rising and unfortunately, have become extremely unsafe -- and in some cases, deadly. 'The Blackout Challenge,' which encourages children to strangle or suffocate themselves until they blackout, is arguably the most dangerous. It originated as 'the choking game,' even as early as the 1930s. Prior to 2007, the CDC reported it resulted in the deaths of 82 children, with most victims being adolescent males ages 11-16, with the average age being 13. Since then, it has resurfaced on social platforms and in 2021, caused the death of roughly 10 children in the U.S. Dr. Phil meets two families who lost their sons to 'The blackout challenge.' He also receives an update from a past guest who lost one of her 13-year-old twin boys to 'the choking game' in 2005. The families want to spread awareness about this challenge to hopefully save other children's lives – and advocate for the sons they lost. You won't want to miss this powerful episode.

    Do you ever feel nervous before posting on social media? Have you ever censored your own thoughts because you worry that you could be criticized or even canceled for posting your beliefs? Dr. Phil and his guests discuss the self-censorship debate on the internet and social media, including the fundamental misunderstanding about the true extent of 'freedom of speech' under the First Amendment. Kimberly, a University of Tennessee doctoral candidate, claims her college violated her freedom of speech after a professional conduct committee determined that she had posted unprofessional content to her social media. What rights do colleges have to spy on personal social media posts? Also, Tehran Von Ghasri, a comedian who performs on college campuses, says cancel culture has gone too far. How does the fear of being canceled affect the jokes he performs for college students or content he posts online? Alexandra, a social media influencer and business owner, says giving opinions about COVID got her censored and three accounts closed. What did she say to get canceled? Dr. Phil also talks with Attorney Robert Shibley, a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), who says over half of Americans are not saying how they feel for fear of offending others or being canceled. Jessica Levinson, an attorney and a Clinical Professor of Law at Loyola Law School, provides an explanation on the boundaries of the First Amendment. And, Gabrielle Gambrell, a Columbia University and NYU professor, says that social media sites are obligated to monitor hate and dangerous speech.

    Teachers have always been held in the highest regard and viewed as role models in the eyes of society. Unfortunately, teachers are now underpaid, overworked, and looking for supplemental income because of today's economy. More than half of all K-12 teachers in the United States earn income from sources other than their teaching salary. There is a growing trend that allows teachers to make their yearly income in just one month: sex work on subscription social platforms. For some teachers, this has allowed them to live a new 'American dream.' Why is it acceptable for teachers to work side jobs in retail – and not through sex work? While activists are currently working to combat sex work stigma, critics believe teachers have a moral obligation to their students. Dr. Phil and his guests discuss a subject once thought of as 'taboo' but is now in the headlines for how teachers make ends meet.

    The term 'Karen,' a pejorative slang term for an alleged obnoxious, angry, entitled, and perceived racist white woman who uses inherent privilege to get their way or police other people's behaviors, became the most notorious watchword of 2020. It is now 2022, and the term 'Karen' is officially a part of our lexicon with no sign of leaving anytime soon. Dr. Phil speaks with Ambrosia, who says she was falsely accused of being a 'Karen' when she refused to wear a mask and claimed a UPS store was her place of residence because she had packages delivered there. How did her life change after a video of her went viral? Can good people who do not have any ill intent be racist? Can a person be a 'Karen' and not even know it? The controversial documentary Deconstructing Karen has been at the forefront of this issue. The film follows 'Race2Dinner' co-founders and co-authors of 'White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How To Do Better,' Regina Jackson and Saira Rao, who say they challenge white women who say they are not racist to see their innate racism and use the newfound realization to help fight systemic racism in America. Director Patty Ivins-Specht also explains what she learned from working on the documentary. Then, educator Toni says she is sick and tired of the 'Karen' trend and it is wrong to label all white women as racists. And, life coach and author of One Decision, Mike Bayer, joins the conversation with his thoughts on choices people make, and alternative behavioral options to being 'Karen-ish'.

    Today, more than 50,000 people worldwide have elected to receive microchip implants, which allow you to pay with your hand, open your car or house door, store your medical information in case of an emergency and much more – all from your hand. Biohackers, proponents of microchipping, are an underground movement of citizen scientists who use unconventional approaches when experimenting on their own bodies outside of the traditional lab. So, what are the consequences? Anastasia says she's a cyborg magician, transhumanist, and biohacker who has 47 implants and plans to get more. Through an in-studio demonstration, Anastasia shows Dr. Phil and viewers exactly what some of her microchip implants do. Did she go overboard?

    The Fair Housing Act was passed in 1968 to protect people from discrimination while buying a home or seeking a mortgage.

    Phishing, vishing, smishing, spear phishing, and whaling, among others, are all forms of social engineering, ways for criminals to exploit your trust, fears, and mistakes to steal your money or confidential information to commit future crimes. Last year, Americans lost over $5.6 billion dollars – and that's only what was reported. Imagine getting a call from someone claiming to be your grandchild, saying they're in jail after a horrible car accident and need money for a lawyer – and you're asked to put $8,000 in a shoe box and give it to a courier who comes to your door. Would you do it? Dr. Phil's guest Libby says she did. Or, what if you found your dream home online and the person claiming to be the property agent offered you a lease and asked you to wire the money without ever meeting them? Breanna says that's what she and her family did.

    Longtime watchdogs of hate speech say there's nothing new about the kinds of antisemitic comments that rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and others have made recently. But what has struck some experts is how blatant the comments about Jews are at a time when incidents of harassment, vandalism, and violence have been at their highest levels since at least the 1970s. Recently, Jewish community centers throughout Detroit and synagogues in New Jersey were evacuated due to bomb threats, and in Sacramento, the sign in front of a synagogue was set on fire and desecrated with swastikas. Dr. Phil is joined by a panel of guests to discuss recent incidents of antisemitism and solutions.

    Wildfires that decimate entire towns, tornados that destroy everything in their path, and hurricanes so powerful they bring a water surge so high that communities are turned into ocean. Imagine being trapped in one of these events, paralyzed with fear, believing you and your family are going to die. Rebuilding your home and the community is a challenge, but overcoming the emotional aftermath can be just as, or more traumatic than, surviving the event itself. Dr. Phil meets Danielle who survived Hurricane Ian as it decimated her community and flooded her home, while she and her two sons with disabilities were trapped inside. Now, Danielle says the trauma she endured during the storm has left her barely living. Then, Athena and her husband, Simon, say their 9-year-old son, Xavier, was never the same after he was pulled from the rubble after a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma tore down his school, leaving him buried alive and killing his classmates. Tragically, just weeks before the fifth anniversary of the tornado, Athena and Simon say Xavier took his own life due to the trauma he endured that day. Dr. Phil also sits down with Xavier's sisters, Haley and Marissa, who were emotionally affected by the tornado as well.

    Why would anyone ever join a cult? Well, more people than you think have joined what some call a 'cult like' environment without realizing it. People 'follow the leader,' the loudest voice or biggest trend, and soon enough, their whole life revolves around this new trainer, diet, and lifestyle. From fitness classes with 'God-like' instructors to trendy side hustles that are all over social media – you might not realize that these companies and people are using 'cult-like' tactics to lure you in and take your money, your time, and your loyalty. Cult deprogrammer and specialist Rick Alan Ross shares what elements make up a dangerous and destructive cult. Dr. Natalia Petrzela and Monica share their stories about being a part of different 'cult-like' environments in the fitness world and working in multi-level marketing companies.

    Are children the future? It depends on whom you ask. Parenthood has increasingly become a topic of conversation as more and more people are deciding not to have children. All across social media, people are celebrating 'child-free' living and some think the human population should just become extinct altogether. There is a fierce and controversial argument about the environmental, economic, and racial concerns of having or not having children. Will having children make the world a better place? Dr. Phil discusses whether it's 'smart' to procreate with pronatalists, those who encourage people to have children, and anti-natalists, those who believe it is morally/ethically wrong or unjustifiable for people to have children. Plus, Dr. John Whyte, Chief Medical Officer at WebMD, shares how to take control of your diabetes risk. Dr. Whyte says every year, 1.5 million people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and this is a serious issue. Tune in today.

    California reportedly holds more than half of all unsheltered homeless people in the United States and the highest number of homeless encampments. Clusters of tent cities line almost every block. Beach paths, parks, underpasses and street dividers look like 'Skid Row.' California's problem is reflective of a growing national crisis, and now, major cities across the U.S. are taking aim at the issue by passing new laws that restrict where the homeless can camp. But, these new measures are sparking a heated debate. Dr. Phil is joined by a councilman who claims he has the solutions, as well as the Executive Director of the National Coalition for the Homeless. Plus, go inside some of Los Angeles' most dangerous encampments, and hear from a homeless woman who says there is hope.

Dr. Phil speaks with 22-year-old Emma, who says she was a cheerleader and 'picture-perfect American girl' who appeared happy on the outside but was secretly struggling with severe anxiety and depression, which led her to make a near-fatal decision that changed her life forever. Ross Szabo, the wellness director at Geffen Academy at UCLA, the CEO of the Human Power Project, and co-author with Melanie Hall of Behind Happy Faces: Taking Charge of Your Mental Health, says he has ideas to implement more mental health education in schools. And, Massachusetts's Congressman Seth Moulton shares his latest project: the new 9-8-8 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

    The Surgeon General's Advisory stated, before the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health challenges were the leading cause of disability and poor life outcomes in young people. The pandemic shutdown further exacerbated the mental challenges, and youth mental health is trending in the wrong direction across the country. Why is this happening? How do parents and schools play a role? Some experts believe young people were never taught how to fend for themselves because they were raised in a bubble by 'concierge parents' who protected them from learning about life and developing resiliency. Twenty-four-year-old Gracelyn says she describes her childhood just that way. She admits she was overprotected in some ways growing up, which she believes led to struggles with anxiety and depression for the past six years. What does she reveal for the first time? Also, parents of teens with mental health struggles talk about their frustrations. This is a life-saving episode you won't want to miss.

Since his arrest in 2019, hundreds of alleged victims have come forward, claiming they were sexually assaulted during one or more of their wellness examinations with Dr. Heaps. However, Dr. Heaps continues to maintain his innocence. Today, four of his victims – Melanie, Ellen, Nicole, and Gaby – speak out and share their stories of the horrific abuse they claim they endured. Their attorneys, Darren Kavinoky and Jennifer McGrath, say things need to change now to hold predators and the large institutions who employ them accountable.

    Many American adults have taken, and even sent, nude pictures or videos. But when it comes to taking or sending intimate pictures and videos, you need to tread carefully because there are unscrupulous people -- people you may have once trusted -- who might post them online for all to see. It's most commonly called 'revenge porn,' but it's more accurately referred to as the non-consensual dissemination of intimate images. More than 26 million people have had their most personal and private images posted online without their consent, often together with their real names and identifying information. It's an epidemic -- and it could happen to you! Two years ago, Katelynn Spencer found out that two videos of her – one she consented to and another she says she had no idea was taken -- had been posted without her consent on a 'revenge porn' site for over a decade. She says the effects were devastating. Then, meet Uldouz Wallace and Kayla Laws, who say their images were stolen from them and posted without their consent or knowledge. Charlotte Laws, Kayla's mother, made it her mission to shut down the 'revenge porn' site that hosted images of her daughter, also joins the conversation. And, cybersecurity expert James McGibney says when he learned about the most notorious 'revenge porn' site of the time, he bought it, shut it down, and rerouted it to his anti-bullying site. He says he now devotes his expertise and energy to helping women get their private, intimate, and stolen images off the internet. Plus, Los Angeles attorney Samuel Dordulian talks about what your legal options are if this happens to you.

    Next time you step out your front door, beware! Nowadays, people have no shame recording absolute strangers in public and posting the videos online for social media users to gawk at. From catching Karens in the act and filming unbecoming behavior in parks, stores, and on planes to recording innocent strangers and mocking their appearances and/or medical conditions, nothing -- and no one -- seems to be off limits. Should someone be able to film you in public without your consent and post it online? Some say absolutely; everyone who behaves badly is fair game and sharing their behavior online is about accountability and justice. They don't care about the repercussions the person may face after their behavior has been exposed. Others believe recording strangers in public is more about getting attention on social media and that even in public, people should have a semblance of privacy. Dr. Phil meets Jasmine, who claims she recorded and posted a video of a confrontation she had with an angry woman at a restaurant to get justice and force accountability. The woman in Jasmine's video was identified online by a man known as ThatDaneshGuy, who says identifying people in these videos is a way to help people get justice -- but does it do more harm than good? Criminal defense attorney Vikas Bajaj says these videos should not be posted online because they are often out of context. And, Lilly says she found out she was the subject of a cruel video post that someone had secretly filmed of her while sitting on a train in New York City. Lastly, is recording someone in public and posting it online legal? Dr. Phil speaks with attorney Mitra Ahouraian to discuss what rights people have in public.

'Sharenting' is the term used to describe parents publicizing sensitive content or oversharing their children on the internet.

Critics say oversharing is an invasion of children's privacy, dangerous, and harmful to the relationship between parent and child.

    Some believe there is a growing trend, particularly among younger women, to dress more revealingly than ever before, leaving many women concerned that showing more skin and wearing less in public has become socially acceptable and normalized. These detractors claim women are choosing provocative wardrobe choices for the wrong reasons: to attract men and online followers. However, women who are choosing to wear the clothing in question claim they should have the freedom to wear what they want and shouldn't be 'slut shamed' or forced to censor their wardrobe. They claim women who have a problem with it are from an older generation with an even older sense of fashion and style. Nicole, a social media fashion influencer and wardrobe stylist, says showing more skin is all about female empowerment. Radio show host Andrea Kaye and Kent State University Associate Professor Dr. Suzy D'Enbeau weigh in, explaining why they disagree and believe dressing in a revealing way is not actually empowering to women at all. Plus, Dr. Phil meets Nicole, who claims she was denied entry at Disneyworld due to her outfit. She says when she posted a video of her story online, she was 'slut shamed' and even received death threats because of her outfit. Dr. Phil also speaks with Marie, a mother who says she is concerned about her 19-year-old daughter's safety due to what she wears.

Looking for love on these apps can be addictive -- but it can also be very dangerous. There have been people scammed, sexually assaulted, and others who have had their life threatened after meeting people on these apps. When Jules moved to California, she says she decided to jump on a dating app figuring it would be the easiest way to meet people. However, she says one date, who appeared to be jealous, stole her keys and hid under her bed to spy on her. Holden says he went to his date's father's house to play video games but ended up waking up in a bathtub and barely making it out alive. Christine says after her divorce, she thought she met her Prince Charming on a dating app, but he ended up scamming her out of a lot of money. Kelly says she met a man at a bar for her first date, and before she could say bye, he grabbed her, threw her in his car, and sexually assaulted her. Expert Nancy Jo Sales says dating apps are becoming more dangerous. So how can you be careful when finding love? Why have so many become dependent on using dating apps?

    There is a raging national debate between people who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice. Nancy Davis is one of the women caught in the crossfire of the abortion debate since Roe v. Wade was overturned. Nancy says she was about 10 weeks pregnant when the fetus she was carrying was diagnosed with acrania, a fatal condition where the fetus' skull does not form inside the womb. She claims she tried to have an abortion, but doctors denied her, saying she'd have to carry the baby to bury it because, in her home state of Louisiana, abortions are banned. Dr. Phil speaks with pro-choice advocate and President of the National Organization for Women, Christian Nunes, and Lila Rose, pro-life activist and president/founder of Live Action, a non-profit anti-abortion organization. The debate gets heated with several audience members from both sides arguing over when they believe life begins, including civil rights attorney Ben Crump, Jess Meeth from Democrats for Life, Louisiana Senator Katerina Jackson, and Susan Swift from The Right to Life League.

    Dr. Phil continues his conversation about 'sextortion,' a serious crime that occurs when someone manipulates you into sending a compromising image and threatens to distribute your private and sensitive material if you don't provide them more images, sexual favors, or money. These relentless and remorseless predators are targeting children as young as 5 years old, and it's not only happening to girls; boys are also victims as well. Mary and Darren say their son, Riley, died by suicide after being sextorted when he was 15. Pauline says her 17-year-old son, Ryan, sent a perpetrator, who he thought was a girl his age, a photo, and that's when the blackmailing began. Pauline says after only eight hours, Ryan tragically took his own life. Pauline says she now works with Angelie Donzanti, Crime and Intelligence Analyst for the San Jose Police Department, who runs the Vigilant Parent Initiative, a hands-on learning program that gives parents and educators a deeper dive into the current trending apps. Plus, Sergeant Sean Pierce, Commander of the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, says there's no difference between giving your child unlimited access to the internet and leaving your child home alone with the front door open.

    Sextortion, when someone blackmails you into providing them money, images of a sexual nature, or sexual favors by threatening to release your graphic information, videos, and/or pictures, is real and is not only happening to adults. College students and young kids from kindergarten to teens in high school are also becoming victims. Parents, this is a wake-up call because, in some of these cases, the results are fatal. Kaylee says she was a victim of sextortion from 12-16 years old. She says her sextortionists groomed her by pretending to be her friends online. Kaylee's mother, Angela, says she only found out when the FBI showed up at her door when Kaylee was 19. Sierra, Kaylee's best friend, says she was also groomed by the same men as Kaylee, but neither of them knew about the other until years later. Then, meet Carol whose 15-year-old daughter, Amanda, was sextorted and tragically took her own life. Sergeant Sean Pierce, Commander of the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and Angelie Donzanti, Crime and Intelligence Analyst with the San Jose Police Department, join the conversation and reveal what to look for and what not to post online.

    Dr. Phil mediates a discussion about whether the legalization of marijuana is doing more harm than good; a woman who says she lost her teenage son due to the legalization of marijuanaMarijuana, weed, pot, cannabis -- no matter what you call it -- it's been hotly debated whether it's safe to use or if legalization is doing more harm than good. The number of Americans using marijuana is at a record high, so it appears that using pot is getting a pass! But, many experts and concerned citizens insist marijuana is dangerous and that it should not be legal. Dr. Phil mediates a heated discussion between people on both sides of this issue, including retired police officer Major Neill Franklin, marijuana policy maker Karen O'Keefe, and dispensary insiders Bre and Char, who insist legalization is keeping children and communities safe. On the other side are anti-legalization activist Dr. Kevin Sabet, as well as ER physician Dr. Roneet Lev, who claims to see the effects of marijuana in her hospital every day. Plus, Laura Stack claims she lost her teenage son due to the legalization of marijuana. Will Laura's story change the opinions of those in favor of legalization? And, you don't want to miss the emotional moment when multiple members of the audience join the discussion over this divided issue.

    In March 2022, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis passed the 'Parents Rights in Education' law, preventing the discussion of sexuality or gender identity in kindergarten through third grades in Florida and requiring parents to be part of teacher and student meetings. Advocates say this law protects the rights of the parent. But critics nicknamed the law 'Don't Say Gay' and claim it turns back the clock on equality. Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich, co-founders of Moms of Liberty, say every parent deserves a seat at the table to make sure that certain inappropriate content is not discussed. Candice Jackson, an attorney and mother who worked for the Department of Education under President Trump, says it's our First Amendment right not to call someone by their preferred pronouns. However, Nadine Smith, executive director for Equality for Florida, says children need full transparency in their curriculum. Dave and Hannah Edwards are educators who say they pulled their trans daughter out of a public school after the school failed to teach transgender education in kindergarten. And, hear from Representative Joe Harding, who sponsored Governor DeSantis' Parents Rights in Education bill. Professor Jody Armour from the USC Gould School of Law then speaks from his heart when he suggests we all work on having better communication and giving each other more grace.

    Bullying in 2022 comes in many forms, and the internet continues to be the most popular way to deliver this toxic and cruel behavior. Bullying is a severe threat to a child's self-esteem and mental health. Being targeted by a cyberbully can increase the risk of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, feelings of worthlessness, and, most tragically, suicide. But not all bullying is long-term. In fact, the heavy psychological toll this kind of harassment takes can often be swift. Meet Cheryl and Hunter, whose 16-year-old daughter, McKenna, took her own life after being bullied by four girls she thought were her friends. They say that after less than five days of being bullied, McKenna could no longer cope and made the tragic decision to take her own life. The parents say their daughter went to shower on a Saturday evening, and they never saw her alive again.

    It used to be that if you were a child being bullied at school, once you walked over the threshold of your home, there would be a 'reprieve' until you walked into school the next day. But times have changed. Teens, tweens, and those even younger are being bullied from every angle because, with the internet and the prevalence of social media, there are always ways to target a victim – oftentimes anonymously. And if a bullied teen does disconnect their devices, bullies can always use old-fashioned, in-person harassment. It seems there's no escape. Meet Antoinette, whose 13-year-old daughter, Muffin, took her own life after being bullied by children at her school. When not in school, Antoinette says they continued the bullying online, creating fake online pages and talking about Muffin's appearance. On the Saturday morning of Muffin's death, Antoinette went to the store only to return to every parent's worst nightmare.

    As a whole, Baby Boomers, those born between 1946 -1964, believe they have worked hard, sacrificed, and paid their dues – and that the younger generation is entitled and sits on social media all day, expecting to get everything handed to them. However, Gen Z, those born between 1997 – 2012, blame Baby Boomers for the current state of the environment and the economy. Since 2019, the hashtag #okboomer has been used 3.7 B times on TikTok to describe a Baby Boomer being 'out of touch.' Is Gen Z really being coddled, whereas Boomers 'pulled themselves up by their bootstraps'? And, how is that affecting their mental health? Dr. Phil discusses these generational differences -- societal values, work ethic, use of technology -- and if these two generations, 50 years apart, are really that different, after all.

    In 2014, 29-year-old Brittany Maynard transformed the conversation about medical aid in dying, which allows a terminally ill patient with a prognosis of six months or less to live and is capable of making their own healthcare decisions, to self-administer prescribed medication to die with dignity. At the time, medical aid-in-dying was only authorized in four states, but today, it has been legalized in 10 states and Washington D.C. Additionally, many Americans are choosing to fly internationally to use medical aid-in-dying for non-terminal illnesses. With its growing popularity and more and more legislation being passed, Dr. Phil and his guests discuss dying on your own terms. With only one life, who says you can't control your end date? And, is it your right to die on your own terms?

    Dr. Phil discusses harm reduction, the concept of treating drug abuse like a medical issue and providing addicts with paraphernalia, such as clean needles in a safe space, and free housing regardless of whether or not they test positive for drugs. Michael Shellenberger, author of 'San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities,' says he believes that America's approach to drug abuse, crime, and homelessness has gotten too soft. Los Angeles resident Marcy Jo agrees and says open drug use and homelessness in L.A. have gotten out of control. On the other side of the debate is California State Senator Scott Wiener, who wrote Senate Bill 57. The bill would have legalized safe consumption sites in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, but was vetoed by Governor Newsom in August 2022. Weiner says he was extremely disappointed that the veto blocked life-saving legislation. Maia Szalavitz, author of 'Undoing Drugs: The Untold Story of Harm Reduction in the Future of Addiction,' is a recovering heroin and cocaine user who says harm reduction saved her life. She says although harm reduction is not a cure for addiction, it can keep people alive until they can recover.

    Some believe self-censorship is a big problem today, particularly in light of the idea that someone can be 'canceled' for their words -- blocked from having a prominent public platform or career for sharing their opinion. Dr. Phil interviews Nate, a former Idaho police officer, who claims he was fired after making a TikTok video about NBA superstar LeBron James that went viral and has been viewed over 4 million times. Nate explains how the fallout from the video affected him and his family, too. Dr. Phil also speaks with conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren, who says she recently had to be protected by state police from student protestors at the University of New Mexico. Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, says he believes Americans have lost the ability to discuss their differences rationally. And, Dr. Shaun Harper, founder and Executive Director of the USC Race and Equity Center, says he is firmly against hate speech and feels people need to be more mindful about the effects of their words.

    We've all heard of children being bullied in the schoolyard and teens being bullied online. But did you know that 48.6 million adults have been bullied as adults -- by adults -- at work? The bullying, which can take many forms, including exclusion from professional activities, verbal attacks, isolation, rumors, and humiliation, is often hard to prove and difficult to report, and there are few laws protecting against it. Meet a woman who claims that, after years of workplace bullying, she finally chose her physical and mental well-being over being able to pay her mortgage, so she quit her job. Then, another woman says, 'The most cold, calculating, and unexpected villain a woman will ever come face to face with at work is another woman.' And, meet a man who claims that his workplace bully led him to contemplate taking his own life. Find out what stopped him. Plus, hear from a woman who alleges she was bullied when she worked for a multinational financial services company. By the end of this episode, you will be able to identify if you are being bullied at work and will learn what you can do about it, how to move on and overcome the psychological trauma, and how to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Since 2020, 36.5% of Americans have been considered overweight and 32.5% obese. Are we doing too much to celebrate the plus-sized? Not according to Lexi and her husband, Will, who say they've struggled with their body image their entire lives and have now found freedom in letting go of the need to control their weight and instead accepting themselves the way they are. Dr. Phil also meets YouTube personality John Glaude, who says he once believed in the body positivity movement until it almost killed him. Plus, Dr. Howard Liebowitz discusses the medical realities of being overweight, and nutritionist Kelsey Koehler offers tips to set practical goals for weight loss.

    Cultural appropriation, to many, means people with a privileged status taking cultural identity markers from members of a minority community without permission or acknowledgment. This can include language, art, music, literature, clothing, food, beauty standards/traditions, social norms, customs, and values. So, does that mean that a Caucasian person can't own a Chinese restaurant? Can a Latina wear braids or locks? Should children never wear Halloween costumes that depict another culture, ethnicity or race? When does admiration turn into appropriation, and is the argument against appropriation just? Does the anti-appropriation movement ever turn into a form of racism? Meet a young woman who says she received death threats for wearing a dress from another culture, a woman who says she was called out for cosplaying a Japanese anime character, and a woman who says people need to stop stealing other cultures' foods and calling them their own. Dr. Neal Lester, Foundation Professor of English at Arizona State University, Brittany Collins, influencer and business owner, and Amala Ekpunobi, PragerU personality and host of the podcast Unapologetic LIVE, join Dr. Phil for a passionate debate.

    Refusing to answer an email or call after working hours, not doing a work assignment you felt wasn't in your job description, and insisting that if your employer wants you to go above and beyond, they need to pay you for it. Does that sound ridiculous? Quiet quitting, the idea that employees only do what is in their job description, between the hours they were hired to do it, and nothing more has become more than a viral social media hashtag; it has become a movement by employees of all ages. Dr. Phil speaks with an employment and labor attorney who says quiet quitting makes perfect sense, because if employers want employees to work extra, then they need to pay them extra. Then, hear from a young man who says he is currently quiet quitting. Why does he say he won't put in extra effort without being paid for it? Plus, business owners say quiet quitters are just a bunch of slackers, undependable employees hiding behind a cute hashtag to make lazy sound better.

Dr. Phil meets two women who claim they were sexually assaulted by college athletes and say there is a big double standard when it comes to athletes accused versus typical students. Bailey claims she was sexually assaulted by three basketball players but claims they were protected by the university. Then, Teresa says she knows firsthand the double standard when it comes to athletic preferential treatment because, even though the person who assaulted her was convicted, served time, and had to register as a sex offender, he was allowed to return to the field and was hailed as a star for another university. Plus, when an attorney claims athletes are the victims and their notoriety makes them easy targets for false accusations, he sparks an emotional debate.

However, the sports parents in Dr. Phil's audience push back, claiming coaches need to stop blaming them and start blaming themselves. Then, meet a referee who wrote an emotional email to parents informing them he was quitting due to their sideline behavior.

    President Biden recently announced a three-part plan to provide more breathing room to America's working families as they continue to recover from the strains associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan offers targeted debt relief as part of a comprehensive effort to address the burden of growing college costs and make the student loan system more manageable for working families. The Education Department has indicated that around 8 million federal student loan borrowers who already have their income information on file with the Department will be eligible for automatic student loan forgiveness. However, this announcement kicked off a nationwide debate. Supporters praised the act as a landmark move to wipe out millions of student loan debt, while critics say the plan will increase inflation and does not address the underlying problem of soaring higher-education costs. Dr. Phil speaks with people on both sides of this issue. Inez Stepman, senior policy analyst at Independent Women's Forum (IWF), says it's not fair for taxpayers to be stuck paying someone else's debt. Economic Sociologist and Professor Charlie Eaton says loan cancellation will be life-changing for low/moderate income students. Neal McCluskey, director of CATO Institute, Mark Kantrowitz, policy expert, Holly Taylor, an attorney whose video of her student loan outrage went viral, and James Cowart, a college graduate who says he will benefit from Biden's student loan plan, weigh in on the debate. Is Biden's plan raising living standards or adding fuel to inflation? Helping lower-income Americans or supporting the rich?

    A mother says she was assaulted in front of her family at a fast-food restaurant, and a young man was beaten on a New York street in broad daylight. What do these incidents have in common? They were allegedly instigated by hate. In the U.S. in 2020, there were approximately 8,000 hate crimes reported to the FBI by law enforcement agencies. However, some Department Of Justice experts say they believe the number is closer to 250,000 per year. Dr. Phil speaks with parents, Gabriel and Nerissa, their daughter, Patricia, and their attorney, Sandy Roxas, who explain why they feel anti-Asian hate is often overlooked. The close-knit family says they are traumatized after a recent incident at a fast-food drive-thru involving a stranger who mocked them using a fake Asian accent. How do they claim the police reacted even with videotaped evidence? And, why do they say they feel ignored? They say they're sharing their heartbreaking testimony as a call for everyone -- no matter their background -- to stand up in solidarity against hate.

    In June 2022, the United States Supreme Court stripped away constitutional protections for abortion that had stood for nearly a half-century. Pro-life supporters cheered on the ruling, while pro-choice supporters pledged to fight it. Now, in a post-Roe America, women are caught at the center of legal confusion because of these often-vague state laws. Nancy Davis says she was about 10 weeks pregnant when the fetus she was carrying was diagnosed with acrania, a fatal condition where the fetus' skull does not form inside the womb. She claims she tried to have an abortion, but doctors denied her, because in her home state of Louisiana, abortions are banned. In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, Nancy and her partner, Shedric, reveal what she had to do to get a legal abortion. Nancy's story is at the center of one of the decade's most controversial and heated debates: abortion. Today, hear from both pro-choice and pro-life advocates.

The 21-year-old college student who defied all the rules went viral on TikTok for licking a toilet seat on an airplane, as she headed to spring break festivities. Ava says the coronavirus is fake news made up by social media. Then, law enforcement visited Pastor Tony Spell because, in continuing to minister to his congregation, he violated an emergency order banning groups of more than 50 people. While Pastor Tony admittedly had over 1,100 people at Sunday Service, he says not allowing large groups to worship but letting people shop is a persecution of the faith.
