Dispatches From The War On Women: 45 Years Of Loving

Welcome to Dispatches, your round-up of the latest news from the frontlines of the War on Women. Have a story from your state or an idea on how to push back? Share them here and fight back against the War on Women.

Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia, a case that ended prohibitions on inter-racial marriage. To mark the occasion the lawyers behind the campaign to overturn Proposition 8 put together this lovely tribute.

Despite the fact that studies show “gay cure” therapies do significant harm to children, the religious right won’t let them go.

It was a powerful day of testimony in support of passing ENDA.

Cayla Roberts’ story is nothing short of tragic. In 2002 she was smuggled into the United States from China at 14 and forced into the sex trade. Ten years later, Roberts was arrested and now faces deportation back to China. Join the others in the Care2 community in urging ICE to end deportation of sex-trafficking victims.

Mississippi only has one abortion clinic and it might not be able to stay open past July 1.

A new ad campaign brings military leadership and veterans out against the military’s ban on abortion coverage.

So far Mitt Romney’s plans for economic growth revolve primarily around slashing public sector jobs like teachers and firefighters. At the same time car wash workers are the latest wage workers to demand affordable health care benefits and tolerable working conditions.

A new study suggests that most young people just are not that motivated to vote. If Republicans continue to try and double student loan rates while taking away their birth control, do you think that will change.

This video is fantastic: Batgirl breaks down equal pay.

Finally! A pro choice appellate court nominee who won’t get filibustered.

It’s hard not to be suspicious, but the nation’s largest health insurer has promised to keep several portions of reforms implemented thanks to health care reform. Assuming this is the case then Obamacare is already a success.

Thanks for checking back and don’t forget to send in your stories, suggestions and comments. We’ll be back each weekday with the latest in the best and the worst from the War on Women. So long as the battle rages, we’ll cover the latest, so please check back!

BMutiny, I was reading what a republican spin doctor said, and I think less of the trolls are paid than you think.

He said they just put that stuff out there, and the ignorant run with it. They are saving quite a bit of money because of all those willing to believe anything against Obama. But you're correct about the talking points, they are sent out every morning.
