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.
One reason the right is fighting back so hard against the Affordable Care Act is because, for the first time since perhaps Roe v.

So it makes sense that the battle over Obamacare features, front and center, women’s lives.
You know how we should know that Obamacare is a good deal? U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) currently enjoys insuring his adult daughter thanks to the protections brought about by health care reform.
One Missouri Republican comes out against his party’s hateful “don’t say gay” legislation by literally coming out.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), recent co-sponsor of yet another attempt to de-fund women’s health coverage in Obamacare, formally endorsed Mitt Romney’s presidential run.
Here’s an update on the story of the pastor who suggested parents punch their “girly” 4 year old.
If your only source of information was the evening news you’d probably have no idea that women in Colorado are not happy with all the anti-choice legislating going on there.
What’s the purpose, beyond political posturing, of the “National Day of Prayer” again?
