Women have sex drives. From Beyonce's "Partition," to college hookup culture, women are becoming more comfortable expressing that they want to engage in sexual activity, not to please a man, but to please themselves.
Thirty-three Republican members of the Colorado legislature joined last year with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a national anti-choice and ant...
New York's primary election changed everything for both the Democratic and Republican nomination contests.
When we look back on this dismal campaign season we'll notice how the real theme of 2016 was the way in which good, old-fashioned misogyny made a roaring comeback. Like a deadening bass-drum, it has functioned as the backbeat of 2016 to such an extent that we hardly hear it anymore.
We knew we couldn't sit on the sidelines. We issued our first-ever primary endorsement because Hillary is a standout leader on reproductive health. And because the challenges facing the people who come to Planned Parenthood health centers were too urgent for us to to "wait and see."
Yesterday, on a quiet, beautiful afternoon in Rhinebeck, New York, I (the Lo of EMandLO.com) squeezed into the greenhouse wing of the historic Beekman Arms (one of the oldest continuously operating inns in America, and also where Chelsea Clinton had her rehearsal dinner) to see Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, speak about the importance of women's reproductive rights and voting for the candidate most equipped to protect them, Hillary Clinton.
Given the positive developments over the last few decades involving the expansion of women's rights and gay rights, it is alarming to witness "legalized intolerance" exemplified through the recently adopted "religious freedom" bill in Georgia.
6:30 a.m. The President will revoke the Second Amendment and take away your precious guns. The President will depart Las Vegas en route to Los Angeles.
Hillary Clinton's or Sanders' election as president might well ensure a left of center bent on the Supreme Court. But even a flip of the Senate into Democratic hands would not unshackle residents in many states from regressive laws enacted by state legislatures and signed by doctrinaire conservative governors.
What is most offensive about the Trump, Cruz, Carson, anti-abortion contention that women who have abortions are "victims" is that it is profoundly dishonest and insulting to the dignity and integrity of women. They should be ashamed.
I would like to thank Donald Trump. While his race to the White House requires the collapse of civil discourse and rewards breaking what had been seen to be the limits of polite speech, he has, at least, revealed a LIE long told by the anti-abortion/"pro-life" movement.
Planned Parenthood shares César Chávez's belief in fair treatment for everyone; we believe that all people and their families deserve to live a safe, healthy, empowered life regardless of where they live -- no matter what.
By the luck of the draw and, perhaps, by the grace of God, too, I don't have a teenage abortion to whisper about, let alone shout. If I did, I secretly wonder if I would be one of those courageous women, sharing their experiences, at #Shoutyourabortion.
You aim for intimacy and connection, not clinical detachment. "I don't want the Republican nominee to be someone that people have to make excuses why...
We have traveled from all over the country to show our support for a woman's right to choose. Inside the building, lawyers for The Center for Reproductive Rights engage in high-stakes legal arguments that challenge recent Texas restrictions on abortion.
I am a busy parish priest half-way through Lent -- so I quite frankly did not have time this week to write about what it means to be prayerfully pro-choice... again. But the orchestrated efforts to turn back the clock on women's reproductive freedom left me no other principled choice.
