NARAL president was afraid to tell people she was pregnant

by Kelli I admit, I had trepidation about telling people…. Is it going to change the way they look at me? Are they going to treat me differently?… There is this whole mentality that anyone who fights for the rights that we fight for must hate children and not want to parent. So to have […]

GOP-controlled Senate “trouble for reproductive rights”?

by Carder A Republican-controlled Senate with McConnell as majority leader could spell serious trouble for reproductive rights. McConnell has been vocal in his support for a national 20-week abortion ban, which he is likely to try to bring to the floor for a vote. Democrats would probably filibuster such a bill, and President Obama would […]

Abortions are expensive, so taxpayers should fund them

by Kelli Abortions are expensive. A first trimester abortion costs an average of $470. A second trimester abortion at 20 weeks costs an average of $1,500. So what do you do if you can’t afford an abortion and you definitely can’t afford a baby? If you happen to be one of the 12 million women […]

Planned Parenthood praises deceased actress Polly Bergen

by Carder Sad to hear of the passing of Polly Bergen – an unforgettable talent and a beloved friend of Planned Parenthood. ~ Planned Parenthood’s Twitter feed on the death of post-abortive singer/actress Polly Bergen. According to Yahoo! TV, her publicist, Judy Katz, announced that “in lieu of flowers, her family is asking that donations be […]

NYT op-ed: Support abortion even if it’s not a “compelling story”

by Kelli By repeating only the gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, terrifying abortion stories, we protect a lie: that abortion isn’t normal. We have learned to think of abortion with shame and fear. We have accepted the damaging idea that a person who wants an abortion must grovel before the consciences of others…. We have to stop categorizing […]

Stanek weekend question: Should pro-lifers support OTC sale of contraceptive pills?

Should hormonal contraception be available OTC?AllahPundit at HotAir.com poses this as a political question: Should the GOP support over-the-counter sales of birth control pills?

I’d like to ask the same of pro-lifers. Be sure to take the poll at the bottom of this post.

To boil AllahPundit’s thoughts down, now that the Supreme Court has ruled closely held for-profit corporations do not have to pay for abortion-causing contraceptives, the Obama administration could force insurance companies to provide them “free” (spread the cost among all insurance payees) or force taxpayers to foot the bill (actually, more of the bill we already foot through so-called “family planning” funding).

Honest liberal: Roe v Wade abortion decision “hardly a secure footing”

Roe_v_Wade_Bad_Law abortionI’ve written before that it isn’t only pro-life scholars who believe the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion was fundamentally flawed: Honest abortion proponents agree.

In a June 17 Truth-out.org article, pro-choice sociologist Salvatore Babones writes:

NY birth/abortion center hopes to “lessen stigma” of abortion

morrisonby Kelli

At a time when abortion rights are in jeopardy — Louisiana’s governor recently signed a bill that would close three of the state’s five clinics that offer abortions, Texas is likely to have only six clinics by September, because of a draconian new law, and other states are cracking down — fresh ideas like this might lessen the stigma of abortion….
