  To some, birth control pills and condoms are no longer the gateways to women’s liberation that they were in they days of Margaret Sanger and her colleagues. New York Magazine’s Ann Friedman recently wrote a piece entitled “No Pill? No Prob. Meet the Pullout Generation” in which she discusses the possible benefits of "pulling out," especially for women.    My response to this idea was something along the lines of ... Read More

Friends of Planned Parenthood in North Carolina donned their best bustles and pumps yesterday to fight the state’s latest anti-woman bill, HB730. The gals dressed up '60s style to show just how out-of-date the bill’s proposals are. They said they “love a good vintage look – but not when it’s running state legislature.” Genius! What is it about this bill that's got their knickers in a twist? Are you sitting down? It's a ... Read More

Thousands of Ethiopian women in Israel are reporting receiving shots of Depo-Provera, a hormonal contraceptive, every three months in Israeli clinics without their knowledge or consent.  A documentary exposing this phenomenon was released this past December, prompting widespread shock and forcing the Israeli health ministry to investigate these claims.  What the documentary revealed was that women were started on these contraceptive “jabs” ...

That’s right, Christian radio talk show host Kevin Swanson recently discussed some clearly accurate and well-researched findings that showed “there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb…” of women using birth control pills. We know this is true because Swanson tells us that “certain doctors and scientists” have done this research. No one can argue with that hard evidence! Swanson ... Read More
