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

Rex Tillerson too fatigued to prevent nuclear war?

Several outlets are reporting that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is  64 years old, had to cut his diplomatic mission short in Korea due to fatigue. As as doctor I find this concerning. This is his second trip and it is already too exhausting? Is he acutely ill? Does he have a health condition … Continue reading

Pantsuits on ladies. A call to arms for modern suffrage.

I started November 8th so hopeful. The polls were a comfortable 78. I wore my new berry colored pantsuit purchased especially for the election. I even wore my suffragette sash to work. The last face I saw before stepping into my office was a young woman in her 20’s who gave me a thumbs up … Continue reading

10 times Megyn Kelly was no Shero

Megyn Kelly interviewed Newt Gingrich on the subject of Donald Trump’s alleged groping. Gingrich didn’t seem to understand that the character of the Presidential candidate is an issue or that Bill Clinton isn’t running for President. It ended with Gingrich accusing Kelly of being sex obsessed and Kelly telling Gingrich he had some anger management … Continue reading

Dear Mr. Trump, is a perforated uterus punishment enough for an illegal abortion?

Dear Mr. Trump, I just heard you on Chris Mathews discussing abortion. “Should the woman be punished for having an abortion?” you were asked. You waffled and tried to deflect, but Mathews called you out. What does an abortion ban mean, he wanted to know? You then called abortion “a very serious problem” and suggested … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina & other thoughts on 2015

2015 started out with a bang for me blogging wise. Gwyneth Paltrow, whose health advice makes me think she is equal parts worried well, attention seeker, and bored silly of being rich suggested women get a steam douche with mugwort and other potential allergens and I said, “Don’t do that.” Apparently newspapers, blogs, and magazines … Continue reading

Ben Carson unveils plan to stop abortions: daycare for children of “uneducated” women

Dr. Ben Carson was on The View today and said this: “A lot of those young girls who are having babies out-of-wedlock — when they have that first baby, they stop their education and that child is four times as likely to grow up in poverty.” He then babbled on about daycare and GEDs and clearly … Continue reading

Carly Fiorina lied about the Planned Parenthood video – an OB/GYN calls her out

Carly Fiorina said this about Planned Parenthood on Wednesday, September 16th during the 2nd GOP debate: Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, “We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.” Either she didn’t watch the video and is claiming she did, she … Continue reading

Ben Carson mansplains there is only a war on what’s inside of women not actually on women

This is what Dr. Ben Carson said about the GOP war on women: “There may be a war on what’s inside of women, but there is no war on women in this country.” Ben Carson: There a ‘war on what’s inside of women, but not a war on women’ http://t.co/s8OhF9psUq pic.twitter.com/Bop6NAYqIg — Raw Story (@RawStory) … Continue reading
