  1. “Too bad the money these kinds of organizations raise isn’t spent on programs that support young, poor mothers after the baby is born. Instead, LifeSiteNews, which has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, appears to spend it on recruiting people to coerce women seeking abortions into starting a family they cannot support, then abandoning them with a lick and a promise. ”

    this also describes all major religions since the beginning of tax exempt status for those special interest groups that use a cynical belief in a dickhead god to further their agendas.

    It’s always so peaceful and quiet and supportive outside the clinics, just like in the video. Nobody ever gets called a whore, slut, etc…

    It’s too late here in Michigan.  The lame-duck Republicans used the Right to Work fiasco to hide their newest anti-choice legislation.  This one requires women to carry abortion riders on their health insurance if they suspect they might need an abortion within the next policy year with no exceptions for rape or incest, and a clause that allows employers to end coverage of birth control pills, or any other medication/proceedure, the employer “morally” objects to.  It’s been a bad week here in Michigan.

      We’ve been watching the news coming out of Michigan, too. This is exactly why there needs to be an organized monitoring of the introduction of these bills. It is the kid playing checkers, I’m telling you. Thanks for your comment and the info.

      • IronEdithKidd says:

        There’s more.  A third bill will require facilities providing abortions to adhere to building standards that out-patient surgical centers must adhere to.  The result will be some facilities having to close, others having to spend obscene cash in order to meet standards that shouldn’t apply to a facility where “surgery” consists of the patient taking a friggin’ pill.  Again, this is a lame-duck session and these outgoing Koch-suckers are ramming as much bullshit legislation through as they can manage to squeeze in.  I’m fairly powerless to object to any of this because all my representation in Lansing is Democrat and they’re outnumbered (and yes, they are voting against the misogynist insanity).

      The situation you guys have in the US with so many of your employers being responsible for your health care strikes me as stark raving bonkers.

      There’s a pretty clear potential conflict of interest, aside from obscenities like moralising religious wackjobs withholding care.

    Texas is just one of the fronts.

    We fought for reproductive right in the 1970s. I thought we settled this debate back then, but I wake up in 2010 and the battle against a woman’s right to make decisions about her body rages on. What happened? How many times do we need to remind these idiots that “your interpretation of your religion” doesn’t tell me how to live my life. The Constitution of the United States in the First Amendment prohibits the Federal Government (and through the doctrine of incorporation, is applicable to state governments as well) from excessively involving itself in religion, particularly to the benefit of one religion over another.

    The religious-right is waging a war against the First Amendment and Perry and so many other assholes fight with state laws and regulations to control women and women’s rights.

    I fought beside women in the 1960s and 1970s for these rights, and I’ll continue to fight until I die. But I am but one person. Younger women need to join the fight in greater numbers. All women are affected by these assholes, some women are traitors to the cause; they too must fall.

    If only Fabergé had made a Transvaginal Crazy Train Egg, we could close the internet and go home.

    Gov. Perry of Texas has just announced he will push new laws in the 2013 Legislative session 1.) to outlaw abortions after 20 weeks (maybe you should talk to him Maggie) & 2) to make it more expensive to start abortion clinics in Texas by adding useless rules & regulations

    You think losing an election matters to these people?

    It’s like dealing with an abuser, a stalker, or a drug addict. Getting them arrested doesn’t “teach them a lesson.”  It just makes them twice as anxious to get riffle your wallet so they can score their next hit of crystal meth.  It seems to be the same sort of psychosis.

  10. I love how the video shows young, female, diverse crowds at the sidewalk vigil–instead of the disgruntled old white guys it usually is.  And I just LOVE how everyone involved in the process of her journey is so loving and open and accepting–when the reality of pro-life folks is a lot more likely to be the “keep your slutty legs closed” kind.  Ugh.  So much crap.  Just so much.
