I guess I come down on the side of “Cheap pregnancy tests for everyone! Everywhere and not just in bars! Put them in malls and at rest stops and in fast food joints and in restaurants and in workplaces! And put condom dispensers right next to ‘em! And put info about pregnancy health care and […]

On September 6 Yahoo News reported on, “‘Sluts vote’: the unlikeliest DNC flair”:
A member of the Illinois delegation has sold out of a batch of pins she made that say “Sluts vote.”
The pins, which cost 2 for $5, reference radio host Rush Limbaugh’s attack on women’s activist Sandra Fluke (he called her a “slut” for advocating that insurance plans fully cover contraceptives). We spotted several delegates on Thursday sporting the pins….
“I think ‘slut’ is offensive, that’s why we’re trying to own it and make it ours,” said Debra Shore, an Illinois delegate from Chicago.
Makes total sense. Ok, done. Democrat feminists can own the term “sluts.”
The modern liberal feminist psyche has become so obsessed with sex, how the act itself and the consequences of it will be funded and celebrated, that contraception and abortion are seemingly feminism’s only urgent interests anymore.
Like a Freudian fixation, sex is all they see. It is in everything.
Outside of sex… the other political projects feminists concern themselves with these days seem either ill-conceived, redundant or grasping at relevance in a world that, let’s face it, is much closer to egalitarian than many young women care to admit….
The pink, sparkly ballet shoe [pictured above] was hurled towards David Bereit, one of America’s most outspoken anti-abortion advocates, on Saturday night… The shoe’s owner, Megan Clement-Couzner [pictured below left] – who belongs to the Sydney based feminist group “F Collective” – said the “symbolic” attack was to interrupt Mr. Bereit and had been modelled […]
Forgive me for not knowing the source of that artwork. Somebody “shared” it on Facebook with Ali Akbar, and it was funny: The contrast between GOP congressional candidate Mia Love and Sandra Fluke is rather illuminating, yes? ~ Robert Stacy McCain displaying a recent internet photoshop of Republican congressional candidate from Utah, Mia Love, and […]
At first you may now know what you’re looking at. But yes, they’re vaginas. Click to enlarge, if you dare…
Yesterday Code Pink activists were featured at the Planned Parenthood bus stop in Tampa, dressed in full frontal feminist regalia. These vulgar women represent mainstream American women?
Created Equal has more photos on its Facebook page. I’ve got one more on page two, too gross for page one.
It’s a bittersweet time… I love being around my kids. I’m not a particularly solitary person… I like a big, chaotic household — noise, commotion, laughter! Sometimes I think I should have had six kids. Or I wish I’d had one [more] at 37, but I was busy. My career. ~ Katie Couric wistful over […]
Ironically, the same four words became a rallying cry for both women. The same simple words are spoken from opposite ends of the universe, with meanings directly contrary to each other. “This is my body” describes the pro-choice, pro-abortion rights mentality in the most succinct way possible. I own this body and all its potential. […]
This morning I read three crazy pro-choice tweets in a row. #1 was by NARAL. Next up is #2, by Planned Parenthood:
The link led to this photo…
This morning pro-abortion group NARAL retweeted the following:
I can take a joke. Only this particular joke came from liberal feminists, who can’t. Were anyone but them dare to quip that women think with their uteruses and not their brains, the mother of all righteous indignations would erupt.
“We have a couple coming in for a sex-selection abortion,” [my clinic director] said. “The fetus is a girl, and their culture prefers boys. I want to know if you will be able to work with them without judging or being negative. Be honest. If you can’t be their advocate, I will. I need to […]
Calm down, ladies. You’re being hysterical. There’s no war on women! What are you talking about? Are you on your period again? May was a busy month for legislating against women’s interests at the state level. In that month alone 34 provisions were enacted in 16 states including [these]… The War on Women is a […]
The Obama campaign and feminists must be freaking out. It turns out they bet badly that what women want are free abortions and contraceptives. What a blunder. There’s nothing left in the pro-abortion arsenal if American women don’t believe Republicans are out to take away their birth control. The other side has already admitted abortion is no longer a winning issue for them. What else do they have?
A New York Times/CBS poll in March showed Obama’s approval sinking among women, this after they launched their “Republicans are waging a war on women” strategy that was supposed to bulk up their support.
Then yesterday the NYT/CBS poll showed now Romney leading Obama among women 46-44%.
We care about what hormonal contraception does to your body and your brain. We research why doctors prescribe birth control to teenagers and adults who don’t have a “regular” menstrual cycle. We object to routine inductions with pitocin and interventions during labor because of the risks to the mother and the baby. We believe that […]
Click to enlarge… Jack Yoest tweeted a link to this photo a couple days go, and it has stayed with me. Upon viewing it mamlovescoffee tweeted, “That has to be one of the saddest, loneliest images of all time.” I agree.
It is something no civilized nation indulges in. In societies where such practices as eating the brains of the dead (usually enemy dead, to be sure — nothing so clammy as one’s own kinfolk) occur, diseases such as kuru and equivalents often ensue, with genetic sequellae and untoward organic consequences in the long term… Not […]
I’ve spent the last decade or so trying not to get pregnant. Thanks to the simple and effective methods offered by modern medicine (and the feminist movement), it hasn’t been hard. For women in my millennial-ish age group, too-early pregnancy has been the freedom-choking bogeyman that kept you from getting to do all the things […]
… [I]t is not feminism to support abortion…. [T]o argue that women are unequal without the “right” to abortion is to believe that pregnancy is something that makes women less-than. But pregnancy is something that is both uniquely female and literally as natural as breathing. To believe that abortion is necessary for women’s equality is […]
I do not understand how a woman in this Legislature can say to herself: “I’m not capable of making my own health decisions… but I can get elected and make them for somebody else.”… What is wrong with these women? What are they thinking about? Are they women? Or are they men with breasts? ~ Democrat […]
The fact is, “slut” is one of the nicer things I’ve been called over 20 years of public life…. Self-serving opponents argue that such attacks do not represent “respectable,” “mainstream” liberal opinion about their conservative female counterparts. But it was feminist godmother Gloria Steinem who called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a “female impersonator.” […]
I wrote yesterday that Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell basically pulled a Bart Stupak. McDonnell blew an opportunity that comes along only rarely in public life, to be an honest-to-goodness hero. Like Stupak, McDonnell more than squandered it. He ended up hurting the pro-life cause by weakening sound, proven ultrasound legislation. But what about feminists? […]
Sandra, I hope you take to heart our school’s motto of “Cura Personalis” – care of the whole person. You are so much more than your reproductive organs. Please, have some self-respect and take responsibility for your choices instead of having to beg the government for help. The government should not be able to force […]
Ms. Magazine: “We’re losing the war on abortion,” and other unforeseen consequences of focusing on contraception
Out of necessity abortion proponents have had to shift the debate from abortion to contraception, as the Washington Post explains: For years, abortion rights advocates have battled an intensity gap: Their supporters don’t feel as strongly about protecting abortion access as antiabortion voters do about restricting it. This has been especially true for younger voters…. […]
I’m grateful that she wants to do it so much, because of the subject matter – because she understands how important sex trafficking and forced prostitution is. And Linda Marciano’s story can happen to anyone. And that’s my role, I believe, in the movie to say that. So I’m very honored that she wanted to […]
Even if one could magically rid all misogyny from the world, there would still be a basis for an anti-choice movement: the belief or the conclusion that nascent human life deserves legal protection. This proposition needs no misogyny to originate or gain widespread assent. And assent it has. So unless you can show conclusively that […]
In this spirit, I’m asking where the Black LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community is on Black women and abortion? This is an important question for me. My identity is as a Black lesbian feminist who has worked with Black gay and lesbian organizations and who works on women’s rights from a reproductive justice […]
When Megyn Kelly was starting out in television, a prominent TV newswoman told her, “You’re going to need to choose: you can either have a family or you can be a major anchor.” Ms. Kelly – now a Fox News anchor… decided to ignore her. “It was terrible advice,” she said…. Ms. Kelly, 41, is […]
Flipping channels several weeks ago, I stumbled on a deeply disturbing Style channel special, “Sperm donor: 74 kids and more on the way.” It told the story of 33-yr-old Ben Seisler, pictured right, whose sperm donations (why do they call them that? he made $150 per deposit) to date have spawned over 70 children – […]
Every now and then you have to laugh. Now this is just funny, this is, in a creepy sort of way. Mr. Ron Pierce is one politically incorrect food critic. Putting this one down as probably the first time – and likely the last time – the word “abortion” is used in a restaurant review, […]
[S]omehow, somewhere, the feminist movement became co-opted by an extraordinarily narrow view of woman, one as narrow as the previously prevailing view that a woman’s only place was at home barefoot in the kitchen. Now it would seem, the view is that a woman’s only place is at her desk, in a pantsuit, with a […]
Severina is human, she is not a feminist thesis. This allows us to have a connection with her. ~ Bioethics professor and documentary director Debora Deniz on the screening of her award-winning documentary Severina’s Story, a film about one Brazilian woman’s struggle with the Supreme Court of Brazil and her quest to abort her son […]
We had complete freedom and were dependent on no one. Most of the women I worked with had impressive graduate degrees, in fields like computer science and electrical engineering. Yet… almost every single one of the women I worked with during this time is now a housewife who either doesn’t work or only works part […]
Well, this makes me happy. The National Organization for Women is doing the right thing here, focusing on a very real reproductive injustice – the exploitation of young women for their eggs. If you haven’t yet seen this compelling movie, here’s the trailer…
Recent news stories about the new vitality of the antiabortion movement and its legislative achievements – more than a dozen states enacting record numbers of abortion restrictions this year – have glossed over one crucial fact. The most visible, entrepreneurial and passionate advocates for the rights of the unborn (as they would put it) are […]
E! News host Giuliana Rancic, married to The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic, announced October 17 that at the age of 36 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. People reported Rancic underwent a double lumpectomy on October 18. Surgeons also removed potentially cancerous lymph nodes. Rancic will begin radiation treatment in six weeks. Thankfully her prognosis […]
As costs rise and opportunities disappear, shouldn’t men have the same rights as women to control their entrance into parenthood? Does that make them any less responsible than mothers who drop off their infants at hospital backdoors, no questions asked, because they realized they were not ready for motherhood? Financial abortion, in the strictest sense, […]
In the UK, although women are allowed to perform almost every role in the services, I understand the jury is still out on whether the last taboo should be lifted: to allow them to serve in close combat units where they would have to kill the enemy face to face…. Yet it struck me that […]
Like a lot of women my age, I’d thought 30 was probably an ideal age to settle down. But once I hit 30, it’s was if I hit an oil patch and the years just slipped away. The men I dated either weren’t at the same life stage as me, or simply didn’t have the […]
Make no mistake. China’s One Child Policy is enforced through forced abortion, forced sterilization and infanticide. Women are dragged out of their homes, strapped to tables, and forced to abort babies they want, up to the 9th month of pregnancy. Women sometimes die during these violent procedures. The One Child Policy is China’s war on […]
Let’s be clear. The only – I repeat, ONLY – reason liberals vilify female politicians like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann is because they are pro-life. Were Palin and Bachmann the conservatives they are except pro-abortion, they’d be tolerated, if not embraced. Nevertheless, I was very disappointed that even liberal feminists piled on Palin in […]
The Lord gives instructions. The women who announce the good news are a large army. ~ Psalm 68:11 I attended Smart Girl Summit 2011 in St. Louis over the weekend and learned an interesting point to ponder. I’ve attended a few local Tea Party rallies but haven’t been intimately involved in the movement. What […]
Earlier this month we saw – or rather, were once again reminded – that Islam permits pedophilia in the guise of “marriage”: Top Saudi cleric, Dr. Salih bin Fawzan (pictured), issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for girls to marry, “even if they are in the cradle,” and that the only […]
We decided that in order to take women forward, we would have to be a voice for all women – so put political party and the issue of abortion aside because those were the two issues that were dividing women in half. So, for us it was a business model: How can you have a […]
While I empathize with the loss Betty Ford’s family and friends must be feeling at her death, I do not lament the passing of any unrepentant leader of the pro-abortion movement, bluntly speaking. The world is a safer place for children with one less person facilitating their murders.
Liberal feminism, with its addiction to abortion and its bullying of men, was never what American women and men – and certainly the American family – needed. Despite some of the best of its intentions, it was mixed up in eugenics and disloyal to the legacy of the suffragette movement, a failed experiment in remaking […]
Tonight Show host Jay Leno demonstrated June 17 that getting a laugh is much more important than political correctness to a comedian. Although Leno is married to pro-abortion feminist Mavis, he knew “male fetus” just wouldn’t get the response “unborn son” would. Watch the clip beginning at 12:28 for Leno’s quip, “Trending tomorrow, Weiner’s unborn […]
Michelle Malkin has more on the hypocritical liberal feminists whose lips are still sealed – be it for pride, fear, neediness, protection of abortion – about misogynist, exhibitionist, predatory two-timer Anthony Weiner.
6/8, 8:10a: Wow, read this major lambast of the fantastically hypocritical Amanda Marcotte at The Other McCain, which came to my attention via this piece at The American Power blog. 6/7, 7:42p: What’s more important, abortion or equal rights for women? Though they would have you believe otherwise, liberal feminists do not consider the 2 […]
Women should be in charge, like the insect kingdom. You’re much brighter than we are. You should have thousands of babies and be in charge. ~Former Kiss rock band member Gene Simmons, CNBC [Warning: vulgar language; discussion begins at 2:23], May 20 [HT: Hot Air Pundit; photo via A&E]
