Idaho sponsor of abortion ultrasound mandate criticized for comments about rape victims | Herstory | Scoop.it

JOHN MILLER, Associated Press,

via The Washington Post

 

A Republican Idaho lawmaker’s suggestion on the Senate floor that a doctor should ask a woman who says she was raped if the pregnancy could have been “caused by normal relations in a marriage” brought a rebuke from another legislator who said it’s insensitive and suggests women may lie to get an abortion.

BREAKING: Office Of Texas Senator And Women's Health Advocate Firebombed

BREAKING: Office Of Texas Senator And Women's Health Advocate Firebombed | Herstory | Scoop.it

by JESSICA PIEKLOBY,  Care2.com 

 

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood and advocate for women’s rights, had her Fort Worth office firebombed Tuesday afternoon. Two staffers were in the office when the office was attacked, though reports at this time indicate no one was hurt. The suspect remains unidentified and on the loose.

 

The incident is the latest in a series of escalating attacks and rhetoric targeting vocally pro-choice legislators and family planning clinics. Previous attacks on clinics in Florida and California underscore the threat women and health care providers face simply trying to access or provide reproductive care. [MORE]

Purpose Driven Lies and Gender Equality

Blog by TINA DUPUY, Taking Eternal Vigilance Too Far

 

This idea of lying to women has been in the quiver of the our-choice-for-you movement since before Roe v. Wade when abortion was legal only at the state level. In 1967, the first of what are now known as crisis pregnancy centers or fake abortion clinics was opened by a man named Robert Pearson in Hawaii. The blueprint for these ruses is still The Pearson Foundation’s manual, “How to Start and Operate Your Own Pro-Life Outreach Crisis Pregnancy Center,” published in 1984. Pearson writes, “Obviously, we’re fighting Satan. A killer, who in this case is the girl who wants to kill her baby, has no right to information that will help her kill her baby.” [MORE]

It was just a few slaps. That’s OK then?

Heard today, the actor who admitted to slapping his ex-wife. "I couldn't handle the fact she was a strong woman," he said.

The ex-wife said she wasn't a beaten wife, just a few slaps because she was difficult to live with. Hello?

No-one should have the right to hit another person, or animal. That's just wrong.

She's not in a situation where she fears for her life, she got out, or he got out, don't know that detail. Yet, she still somehow feels partly to blame. It takes courage to stand up, go the whole way.
