Expect New Wave Of Anti-Abortion Laws

With Republicans in the legislative seat, expect new anti-abortion laws to be forthcoming. It’s not just because of House and Senate victories, but Republicans in statehouses and state legislatures. Arkansas, for instance, already has strict anti-abortion laws. But with a Republican governor succeeding a Democrat who had vetoed two measures that would have banned most […]

Democrats now pose a public health hazard threat, according to a new mailer that many Iowa voters are receiving. The mail comes courtesy of the Susan B. Anthony list, and it warns voters that the views of Democrat Senate nominee Bruce Braley, who supports abortion rights, represent “potentially life-threatening health dangers.” I welcome the Republicans’ […]

Bob Beauprez, Colorado’s Republican candidate for Governor, has said a lot of things that help him stand out as a Tea Party extremist. He’s already put repeal of marijuana legalization on his platform, and managed to campaign alongside Romney not long after echoing Mitt’s sentiments that 47% of Americans “are happy” to be dependent on […]

Some years ago, I got one of those anonymous e-mails your right-wing cousin or in-law loves to send you. I just stumbled across one today. The poem is ostensibly about a baby asking God why Mommy aborted him. It was such an obvious play on emotions, that I wrote a rebuttal that was more in […]

Chuck Todd asked Reince Priebus on “Meet the Press” why his party opposes regulations, except when it comes to abortion clinics. The NBC host pointed out that 80 percent of the clinics in Texas could be forced to close because of a strict Republican-backed anti-abortion law. “Too much regulation, is that fair?” Todd wondered. “Why […]

GoFundMe has deleted the abortion fundraising project pictured here. Earlier this week, the company shut down the campaign of an Illinois woman, Bailey, who was trying to raise money for an abortion that she could not afford out of pocket. According to her page, she is “currently unemployed, completely broke, in debt, and in no […]

Undercover audio has been released of “Keeping Abortion Facilities Closed,” a training hosted by anti-abortion groups at the State Capitol on August 4, 2014. In the video, it’s revealed that anti-choice activists are monitoring patients, staff and doctors. The anti-abortion activists consider tracking license plates and scrutinizing tax records, a tactic which was caught on […]

While conservatives will tout this as a good thing, you can file this under the ongoing war on women. Anti-choicers claim that new restrictions are not intended to halt access to abortions, but that is an out-and-out lie. That is exactly what they’re intended to do. Now read this:Walker Equates Being Eagle Scout To Being […]

Even if it goes against the wishes of the family Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wants to pass a law that would require them to keep a pregnant woman alive to protect a fetus. House Bill 1274, sponsored by state Rep. Austin Badon (D), specifies that if a woman is at least 20 weeks pregnant, the […]

With conservative states working to restrict access for women to reproductive health services, the kind of back alley abortions Roe v. Wade was intended to prevent are resurfacing. It’s a horrible natural experiment that is taking place in Texas, where we are going to see what happens in 2014 when U.S. women don’t have access […]
