Let’s start with the good news. The year of the woman is back, and this time it’s real.
Okay, now down to business.
Xavier University took a look at the benefits it was offering its employees and decided to quit offering health insurance coverage for contraception. This review happened after Catholic institutions were “reminded” thanks to the debate around the Affordable Care Act.
Chelsea Clinton recently offered support to Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke because she’s a class act and learned a thing or two about dealing with mean-spirited and hateful personal attacks from right-wing radio blowhards like Rush Limbaugh.
During the debate around Georgia’s 20 week abortion ban one Republican shared the story of his daughter’s decision to abort at 5 months in first opposing the bill. He ultimately voted for the compromise bill, but not without becoming the target of Tea Party ire.
Planned Parenthood of Texas really shouldn’t have to deal with this kind of thing. In the midst of unprecedented budget cuts the organization turned down a $500,000 donation from noted attention-seeker and misogynist Tucker Max. Max was peddling the donation to get a building named after him as a publicity stunt. Because that’s what funding women’s health care is, really. A publicity stunt.
Police in Wisconsin arrest a 50 year-old ex-con in connection with the bombing of a Grand Chute Planned Parenthood.
Republican presidential nominee to-be Mitt Romney is going to have to keep looking because South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is not interested in being the next Sarah Palin.
Republicans should take note: voters want candidates to debate science, not faith or values.
73% of voters also want an LGBT non-discrimination order.
Republicans are also still having a hard time understanding that an immigration detention is not a “holiday” or a “break” for those detained.
