Last week, the Colorado Department of Health and Ennvironment (CDPHE) blasted a news release to reporters crediting a pregnancy-prevention program for...
The most lasting effect of the smear campaign against Planned Parenthood may be this: Young women are done -- beyond done -- with being shamed for the fact that they are sexual beings, with sexual bodies that have tits and asses and twats and vaginas and uteruses.
You seem like a sincere person who wants to do the right thing. So I'd like to ask you to think about a couple of things that just maybe no one in your circle has ever discussed with you.
Since its passage in 1973, the Helms Amendment has been grossly misinterpreted to prevent U.S. funds from being used to provide safe abortions for rape survivors in the world's poorest countries, even in the case of incest or a life-threatening pregnancy.
There can only be one reason why Ben Carson is now at the top of three new Iowa polls and a new national poll: Republican voters might be in desperate need of some of the good doctor's brain surgery!
Does Dr. Carson really believe he is the father of some retro revolution in which men regain control of women, making us see the error of our waywardness? Women are so far past that that it's a joke, which is why abortion should not even be in question. Wake up, Dr. Carson.
Before Wednesday's Republican debate in Colorado, home of the personhood movement, it's worth a quick review of the top GOP candidates' positions on personhood laws, which would ban abortion by giving legal rights to zygotes (fertilized eggs).
On behalf of Coloradans - Democrats, Republicans, and Unaffiliated voters alike - I'd like to welcome the 2016 Republican Presidential candidates to our proudly pro-choice state. Support for reproductive rights cuts across party lines here and is an historic, mainstream value.
When it comes to gun regulations Republicans have a lot of concerns. While having your rights restricted is obviously an issue for most Americans, nearly every proposal aimed at reducing gun violence has corresponding Republican-backed legislation that should ease the concerns of the "they're coming to take my guns" crowd.
Who are the women now affected by Hyde who would regain access to abortion services through the EACH Woman Act?
For too long, the sexual and reproductive health and justice movement for too long has not taken into account that the United States is one of the most religious countries in the world.
When I walked back into the bathroom of my recently purged and lonesome Brooklyn apartment and saw my intuition confirmed with the word "pregnant" in the window of the digital test, I didn't cry or panic. I sat down and called my mom and then my soon-to-be ex-husband to calmly tell them both that I would be scheduling an abortion for the next week.
While isn't important to remember reproductive health is often synonymous with women's health, here's what is missing in that equation: Such statements can unwittingly perpetuate the myth that reproduction belongs more squarely in women's wheelhouse. Men who get involved? Oh, they're just allies.
There is a sordid history to entrapment being used against advocates of reproductive freedom. One hundred years ago, opponents of legal birth control had succeeded in passing laws outlawing all methods to prevent conception, as well as any speech advocating the legalization thereof.
I write with deep respect. I write because I have seen the terror of an abusive marriage and the angst of Catholic couples who long for respect and acceptance from their Church; and I have seen the suffering.
Deborah Cox's most iconic song from the late 90s asks a simple question to a love that she never saw coming: "How did you get here?"
