Susan G. Komen charity cuts off grants to Planned Parenthood

The nation’s leading breast-cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, will no longer give hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to Planned Parenthood, according to the Associated Press. Planned Parenthood received $680,000 in 2011 and $580,000 in 2010 from Komen for breast-cancer screening and related services. Nearly 170,000…

Why Obama did the right thing

Monitoring right wing rhetoric and skeptical debunking of conspiracy theories and woo are two of my major areas of interest, so hopefully you'll forgive me for being a little giddy when Barack Obama decided to take the birthers head on this morning by releasing the long form birth certificate they've…

A question and two videos

Now the fight is really warming up over the "debt ceiling", and it's clear that the Republicans are going to use the threat of not raising it in order to get concessions out of Democrats.  (I wouldn't be surprised if Planned Parenthood becomes one of the hostages they'll try to…

Is Kirsten Powers mainstreaming an anti-contraception argument? Yes.

Even The Liberals: it’s a nickname I’ve now made up to describe a particular kind of writer/pundit. This is a person whose inadequacies as a thinker and writer prevents him/her from making it in the business as a straight liberal, but who has discovered that pretending to be a liberal…

Vagina-based investment opportunities abound!

While most of the people involved in right wing attack on contraception are sticking to the talking points (claiming it’s “fiscal conservatism” and conflating contraception/cancer screening/STD testing at Planned Parenthood with abortion), the excitement of finally having a shot at parting some of the poorest and most vulnerable women in…

Rally for Planned Parenthood!

Thanks, PPFA

Lila Rose: big time liar and all-around horrible person

I hope this isn’t boring you guys, but I need to do some more blogging on the Live Action/Lila Rose situation. As I’ve noted before, Rose knows and works with James O’Keefe, and she shares his belief that deceptive editing and outright lying are acceptable means to their ends. The…

Setting new records in the art of callousness towards women

Some of you may not know, but James O’Keefe—sleazeball, professional liar, attacker of teachers who provide special ed, and totally not at all creepy guy who tries to trap women on boats to film them being terrified of “seduction” involving refusing to let someone go—got his start doing anti-choice stuff…

Not buying it

I’m sure you’ve heard the story by now of Abby Johnson, the director of the Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX (outside of College Station, where Texas A&M is located), who had a sudden change of heart and now works for the Coalition for Life. Her story is full of holes,…
