Here’s some pretty good news on the old reproductive rights front: A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland, who is based in Bismarck, said […]

Well here’s an update on a dude we first heard about way back in 2010: Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall said back then that he believed that God punishes women who have abortions by sending them disabled children when they have later pregnancies. Here’s how it works, he said: “The number of children who are […]

You’d think that maybe Republicans might have learned something from what happened when Ted Cruz asked Facebook readers to say they hate Obamacare. Which is to say, he got trolled hard by people who love not dying in the streets. Today, Mitch McConnell’s Facebook page is asking folks how they think he should wield a […]

So here is a funny thing. And not an April Fools haha-just-kidding-PSYCH!-YA BURNT! unfunny funny thing, but an actual hilarious-on-any-day-of-the-year funny thing. You know that arts and crafts store, Hobby Lobby, created in God’s image to provide bored housewives with all their scrapbooking and needlepointing needs at made-in-China bargain basement prices? Of course you do, […]

Do you ever feel like maybe Bristol Palin and her mom, Moose, are projecting a little bit? Here, for instance, is “Bristol’s” latest bloog post, about how she enjoys the Bible and choosing life, and how pro-choice people are constantly “spewing violence” toward pro-life folks. Like, they are probably murdering pro-life people right there in […]

That Michelle Obama, always with the evilling, and the Hitlering, like some kind of Evil Hitler. It is like you cannot even turn around in this once-great nation without running into the First Lady of the United States doing something evilly Hitlerian, for instance, encouraging people to drink more water, or encouraging people to sign […]

So Kansas is really on track to be the Most Terrible State of 2014, which is a competition we just invented. This is the fifth time we’ve had to write a “what’s the matter with Kansas” post (find all past Kansas goodness/badness here) yet this year and frankly, Kansas, we are getting a little tired […]

The DC Abortion Fund has found a very clever way to trick anti-choice right-wing social engineers into using their outraged Twittering to help DCAF raise some serious cash, for buying abortions! If you give the DC Abortion Fund $10 a month, you’ll get a tiny coat hanger, ideal for wearing as a pendant or neatly storing […]

You all remember how the Republicans made a big show after Nobummer’s re-election of learning that maybe putting all their eggs in the ‘angry white man’ basket might not work in modern America? That lasted about 2.8 seconds, until Republicans started, you know, being Republican. But since the report that outlined that sincere push was […]

If it’s a day that ends in “y,” (and it is, we checked the Google), then it’s a safe bet that someone somewhere is trying to shove their limited-government legislation right up your vagina to protect you from yourself. For “life” and “freedom” and “babies” and “safety” and “stuff.” This is not news; in fact, […]

We aren’t even sure that it’s news any more when a Republican says that the President of the United States is the worstest most horrible person ever, because that is like printed on GOP letterhead by now, isn’t it? Still, this seems like maybe it’s a new click of the old “He’s not one of […]

You’ve probably been wondering what new idiotic “prolife” laws were on the way, since it’s been at least 26 hours since we discussed any here. Maybe even longer; we’re not going to look! The newest brilliant idea is a bill introduced in the Iowa legislature that would allow patients up to 10 years to sue […]

Virginia state Senator Steve Martin (R-Three Amigos) referred to pregnant women as “host(s)” on his Facebook page and even included a parenthetical aside clarifying that he’s talking about mothers. He’s changed “host” to “bearer of the child,” because “host” suggests fetuses are parasites; his modified verbiage regards the unborn with the dignity they deserve. Apparently, the […]

Oh, man, did you hear the terrible things that Barack Hussein Obama said at the National Prayer Breakfast the other day? They were so offensive. No, he didn’t talk about ‘bortion, or about slut pills, or about how hard it is for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven, or even about […]

So let’s say you are super against abortion, so you decide to light a whole bunch of women’s clinics on fire, to save the babbies. But, after your prison bit for that (a cool dozen years in the federal pen) you roll out and you put your life together because you saw the error of […]
