Regarding reproductive rights we already have President Mike Pence

Among the chatter about the possible illegal activities of the Trump administration there is of course talk of impeachment. Some shake their heads and say no, President Mike Pence would be worse for reproductive rights. To this I say we already have Mike Pence’s misogynistic-fact-absent-forced-birth agenda in the White House. Nothing will get worse because … Continue reading

Trump appoints Charmaine Yoest, our index Aunt Lydia, to Health and Human Services

Trump has appointed Dr. Charmaine Yoest as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at Health and Human Services (HHS). This is why you should care. Who is Dr. Charmaine Yoest. Let’s start with what she is not, a doctor. She has a Ph.D. in political science and is as science-abhorring-pro-life crazy as they come.  Regarding abortion … Continue reading

Bill O’Reilly who targeted Dr. George Tiller now cries about character assassination

Fox has settled sexual assault suits against Bill O’Reilly.  This is fact. Another woman has come forward with similar claims and there is chatter that O’Reilly’s reign at Fox could be coming to and end. O’Reilly is outraged.

Think Teen Vogue’s advice on post-abortion support is frivolous? Then you’re an idiot

People who know nothing about abortion or women but who think it is their business to control women’s reproduction are angry about Teen Vogue’s slide show, What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion. The piece was called vile and an attempt to normalize abortion (whatever that means, abortion is not normal or abnormal, it’s a procedure). … Continue reading

Lena Dunham’s abortion privilege

Lena Dunham is under fire because of comments she made on her Podcast Women of the Hour. The episode, entitled Choice, begins with a thoughtful discussion of choice and how pro-life is a misnomer because those who self-identify that way are really just anti-choice. You can listen to the episode here (I’ve included a link in case … Continue reading

Dear Press, stop calling them “heartbeat” bills and call them “fetal pole cardiac activity” bills

Ohio is the latest state to attempt to pass a medically illiterate abortion “heartbeat” bill. It’s bad enough that these bills exist, but the press needs to do a better job of calling them what they are. If politicians want to play doctor they should be using medical terms. If they refuse to use the correct … Continue reading

Using the myth of 9th month abortions to defend voting for Trump

Since the election I have been contacted by many people reporting that they have friends defending their votes for Trump because they could not bring themselves to support Hillary Clinton due to her position on abortion. For them the issue wasn’t that Clinton ran on a pro-choice platform, but rather she “supported abortion at term.” … Continue reading

I asked several OB/GYNs today if they had seen an increase in requests for IUDs. The answer, “Oh my God, yes.” This confirms what I have also personally seen in the three short days since the election. Some women on the IUD fence just decided to go for it worried it night not be an … Continue reading
