12 Of The Most Disgusting And Disturbing Comments Made By 2016 GOP Candidates

In the aftermath of the 2012 Presidential election, the GOP brass sat down and tried to formulate a new strategy for reaching out to groups of voters they had done poorly with: women, African-Americans, Hispanics, the LGBT community. But here we are nearly four years later and the Republicans are once again alienating these same […]

WTF?! GOP Senator: I Lecture Women On Abortion Because It’s A ‘Men’s Issue’

We naturally expect right wing Republicans to say patently ridiculous–not to mention inaccurate–things, but I do believe that Oklahoma GOP Senator James Lankford has now jumped to the head of the class when it comes to stupid, bizarre statements that are both false and incomprehensible when subjected to logic and reason. During a debate on […]

Anti-Choice Extremism–Alabama Seeks To Take Custody Of Fetus Away From Woman

The state of Alabama, apparently seeking to create the most draconian anti-choice atmosphere in the United States, is now on the verge of making women little more than mere vessels for the carrying of fetuses. In a scene more reminiscent of Margaret Atwood’s classic dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, Alabama will attempt to take custody […]

Wackobird Extremist Claims Liberals ‘Worship At The Altar of Death,’ Says Abortion Is Their ‘Ritual’

We’ve all heard some ridiculous, over the top, hyperbolic language from those on the Anti-Choice side who believe that no woman should be allowed to make her own reproductive decisions, but when I heard what right wing radio host Matt Barber said recently about those who support a woman’s right to choose, I was flabbergasted.

Woman In Arkansas Charged With ‘Concealing Pregnancy’ And ‘Abusing Corpse’ Following Abortion

An Arkansas nurse has been charged for the crime of performing an abortion, and her patient was also charged with concealing a pregnancy and abusing a corpse. You may want to read that first sentence again. It certainly caused me to scratch my head and mumble, “What the…” under my breath. Then I began to […]

Kansas Now Leads The Nation In One Category: Abortion Restrictions

Kansas, which is faced with financial shortfalls in the state budget and recently decided to pass a law saying welfare recipients cannot spend their money on cruise ships, now jumps to the front of the line when it comes to denying women the right to a procedure they are entitled to by the Constitution. On […]

NC GOP State Lawmaker Proposes Abortion Restrictions To ‘Have A Few More Little Taxpayers Born’

I’ve heard some incredibly callous and ignorant reasons for abortion restrictions in my life, but I do believe a Republican lawmaker in North Carolina has now taken the mantle reserved for the most asinine and thoughtless. GOP state Representative Pat McElraft has co-sponsored a bill  in North Carolina which would triple the state’s 24-hour waiting period for […]

Indiana Woman Faces 70 Years In Prison For Miscarriage

Sometime today in an Indiana court, a 33-year-old woman will find out if she faces up to 70 years in prison. Her crime? She had a miscarriage and then went to a hospital because she was experiencing heavy bleeding. Purvi Patel’s saga of heartbreak and legal jeopardy began in 2013 when she went to an […]
