Here's a fact that may surprise you: Women who work for the Peace Corps at its headquarters in Washington, D.C. and women who volunteer for the Peace Corps and serve overseas receive different health care coverage from the federal government.
The anti-choice folks at Heritage House distributed rubber fetus dolls in candy packs that were handed out to children at the North Dakota State Fair. This was intended to convince children of the sanctity of life. The only good news is that this effort is a titanic waste of money.
Sure, it's a bit premature to compare our situation to an Orwellian future, but this is how it starts. And, short of a droid shutting down the Death Star, how can we stop these politicians from squeezing out even more of our freedom and privacy in the name of God or National Security?
Tell Gynoticians like Rick Perry, Trent Franks, Pat McCrory and the Pat McCrorys of women like representative Jodie Laubenberg and Marsha Blackburn that enough is enough: We aren't just coming for their laws, we're coming for their JOBS.

Time: Now, and the past 30 years. Setting: Day. Characters: Me, and Right to Life Protestors ("Protestor One" and "Protestor Two", collectively "Protestors")
The Herald reported that Hill has taken strong anti-choice stands in the past. (Opponents say he supported de-funding Planned Parenthood in Colorado.) And Baumgardner "pitched an Arizona-style immigration law for Colorado two years ago when he was in the House."

We get the big picture, even if we don't all know all the details of the more than 300 abortion restrictions lawmakers introduced during this year's legislative sessions -- some of the most restrictive and extreme we've seen in years.
God was nowhere near the signing of that bill into law today in Texas -- nor was the Constitution of the United States of America.
I am having a moment. Trayvon Martin is dead, nothing can replace him in our lives, and (again) the American legal system - instead of color-blindn...
