House Republican Spending Bill Would Allow Employers To Opt Out Of Birth Control Coverage

House Republican Spending Bill Would Allow Employers To Opt Out Of Birth Control Coverage | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON -- House Republicans included a so-called "conscience clause" in the government funding bill in a plan they approved early Sunday. The House voted 231-192 on a bill that would delay much of the 2010 health care overhaul for a year.

The Women's Movement's Next 50 Years

The Women's Movement's Next 50 Years | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

I always knew this was the longest revolution, one that would take a century or more to unfold. It's upended most of our lives, and significantly improved so many of them. Nothing will ever be the same. Yet there's still such a long way to go. I doubt I'll see full gender equality in my lifetime.

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent

Unethical, Cruel, and Likely Illegal: Anti-Choicers Make Family's Tragedy Public Without Their Consent | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it


Anti-choice activist Jill Stanek recently published online the name and photo of a woman who passed away following a late abortion at the Maryland clinic of Dr. Leroy Carhart. The name and picture of the woman, I’ll call her Marie, along with information about her job, marriage, and pregnancy were soon all over the internet.

Once again, a zealot believes themselves above the law. Shame! Shame!

That isn't really why she did it. And appropriate doesn't begin to cover it. What Jill Stanek did was, as the author said, immoral. I is beyond me how people who call themselves Christian can have so little compassion.

The only concern Jill Stanek has regarding "the complications women have from abortions" is that she believes these women do not suffer enough. It's not just that she doesn't want women to have abortions (I think that's a prayer every person has), but Stanek works to create a world in which no woman would be allowed to have one. Removing choice isn't just removing our fundamental right under the United States Constitution, it isn't just a matter of socio-economic class (i.e. the wealthy go elsewhere to get them), but taking away Choice is to work towards the death of more women. The next time some pro-lifer goes to vote that platform, they should accept the fact that they are voting for more women to die.

If we are going to be sex positive, we need to understand the realities ~ including just how far the fundamental extremists are willing to go. Please read the comments!
