In Washington, D.C., anti-abortion protesters opposed to Planned Parenthood have been harassing children and staff of an elementary school because the school is near a soon-to-be built Planned Parenthood facility.

Carly Fiorina Has Blood On Her Hands, And The Colorado Shooter’s Words Prove It

Carly Fiorina is an accomplice to murder and domestic terrorism. Yes, you read that right, and I will not soften or retract it. Not now, and not ever. Recall that at the second GOP debate, Fiorina, whom I have called the biggest political liar since Richard Nixon (I will never retract that assertion, either) said […]

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 […]

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

Meet The Christian Fundamentalist Group That Forces Children To Give Birth To Rape Babies

There is nothing wrong with a person or group being religious, so long as that religious belief doesn’t infringe on the rights of another person. Far too often, however, that is exactly what happens among those of extreme faith. Allow me to introduce you to a group called Choices4Life, which operates in the name of […]

Georgia Walmart Cites ‘Conscience Clause,’ Refuses To Fill Prescription

A Walmart pharmacist in Milledgeville, Georgia, refused to fill a woman’s valid prescription which her doctor had given her shortly after she suffered a miscarriage.

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 […]

Arizona Governor Signs Controversial Abortion Law

Arizona GOP Governor Doug Ducey signed a extremely controversial bill Monday that prohibits women in his state from buying insurance that includes abortion coverage through the federal healthcare exchange.
