Bush administration embraces anti-contraception agenda

Surprising absolutely no one, the Bush administration told the vast majority of the population that uses or has used contraception that we can fuck off, and that we are dirty whores* who deserve a dressing down from perfect strangers that are supposedly hired to provide service. In fact, the administration…

The mythical reasonable pro-lifer

The search continues. Ross Douthat hasn’t completely outed himself as another anti-contraception nut, but he’s getting closer by denying that contraception reduces the abortion rate by attacking the cause of the vast majority of abortions, which is unplanned pregnancy. He’s smart enough to realize that openly peddling anti-sex ideas like…

McCain and Obama: worse and better than you thought

I was given an assignment to research the two Presidential candidate on the issue of contraception access, and I think the article turned out well. I already knew they had wildly different health care plans, but I was afraid I’d find out the difference ended there and the rest of…

The church—he’s no good for you

I tripped and fell and whoops was a mother

The beauty of blogging is when you get a chance to make those connections that you’d otherwise forget right after they occur to you. Just such a connection happened for me this week. On this week’s podcast (listen today! subscribe!), I interviewed Sharon Camp, the CEO of the Guttmacher Institute,…

National Screw On Contraception Day

Mighty Ponygirl has declared it National Screw While On Contraception Day. Yes, even if you’re “trying”. Or you’re in a committed and tested relationship that’s not running the risk of the big knock-up because you’re gay or sterilized or pregnant or post-menopausal or whatever. You don’t even need a partner.…
