Not stupid, but evil, part one million

A while ago, there was a video circulating where the people filming asked anti-choice protesters how much time a woman should do for abortion. What was interesting about the video was basically everyone but one dude responded with inane blather to distract from the question. Sadly, this was taken as…

How effective is fact bombing?

As I reported this morning, I jumped in on Twitter last night and started, with the help of others, to flood #livetweetingabortion with cold, hard facts. Today, I decided to experiment, and stayed on #livetweetingabortion most of the day to see what could be done by trying to stick to…

Friday Genius Ten “Dropping Truth Bombs” Edition

Last night I hopped on #livetweetingabortion (if you don’t know the story, the blogger who live tweeted her abortion blogs here) because I heard it exploded into a frenzy of anti-choicers who, presented with evidence of a real live sexually active woman who wasn’t ashamed of an abortion, descended on…

Race-baiting pro-life billboards hosted by CBS firm

Hot on the heels of its controversial airing of a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl, CBS is once again facing pressure from activist groups after it emerged its outdoor ads division is hosting a series of provocative anti-abortion ads in the Atlanta area. The company’s involvement in billboards that…

Anti-choice bottom feeders feign outrage

So here’s another one of those fun anti-choice legends that are forming as we speak: Mechelle Hall of Minnesota was rolling up to a women’s health clinic in order to get an abortion back in November, when a mother/daughter duo of fetus worshippers confronted her. And she pulled a knife…

Shocking discovery: Kids who fear sex are open to anti-sex messages

Robert McCartney wrote a puff piece celebrating organized misogyny for the WaPo, and the thing is full of unintentional comedy. Why? Because McCartney decided to focus on the presence of young people at the March for Life, which requires tacitly admitting that the message of the anti-choice movement is perfectly…

Witness: Dr. Tiller’s alleged killer fired without saying a word

A man accused of killing a prominent abortion doctor wordlessly pumped a single gunshot into his victim’s head and threatened two other men before fleeing a Kansas church, witnesses said Monday. Scott Roeder, 51, is on trial for first-degree murder in the 2009 shooting death of Dr. George Tiller, one…

They push the hardest on abortion because we give the most on it

If there’s one thing that I hope people get out of these town hall protests and other right wing freakouts is the interconnectedness of various right wing obsessions with race, sex, and hostility to social spending. Take, for instance, Randall Terry’s anti-health care traveling circus, where they’re going to make…

How to be funny: Start by not sucking

Samhita said something about this whole controversy over the now-censored abortion episode of “Family Guy” that I think bears repeating: I guess no one is seeing the real humor in that unless you are avidly pro-life and anti-women’s right to chose, abortion is not really a fringe topic that is…

So-called abortion party story really about health care access

Via Broadsheet, I found this story about an actual so-called “abortion party”. I say “so-called”, because feminists have been joking that conservatives think we have abortion parties to celebrate the sexual pleasure of having an abortion, that we may even deliberately get pregnant just so we can abort. Because they’ll…
