Hate is winning in the US and women and the disadvantaged are often bearing the painful brunt of this movement.

Say It Again: The Anti-Choice Movement Hurts People

Rebecca Griffin | Posted 04.18.2016 | Women
Rebecca Griffin

Punishment is the logical response when you are referring to a medical procedure as murder. And when you smear abortion providers with hyperbolic stories about selling "baby parts," you can't be surprised when people react violently to put a stop to what they are told is horrific violence.

FDA Updates Abortion Pill Label Despite Political Games

Will this label change make medication abortion more feasible in states facing medically unnecessary, politically motivated restrictions or will politicians with the goal of limiting abortion access just continue to find new ways to restrict access? Time will tell, but this new action from the Food and Drug Administration seems to be a step in the right direction.

The Donald Kicks the Elephant in the Pro-Life Room

Barbara Falconer Newhall

The Donald has a point: if abortion ought to be illegal, why shouldn't the woman who get one be guilty of a crime? And why hasn't the pro-life movement advocated for punishing a woman who gets an abortion?

In a sense, Donald Trump is correct that women who have abortions if the procedure is banned should face "some sort of punishment." Before you misconstrue my opinion, please note that I have always been an advocate of pro-choice.

Abortions Should Never Be Like Russian Roulette

Rep. Alan Grayson | Posted 04.05.2016 | Politics
Rep. Alan Grayson

There was a great deal of consternation last week when Donald Trump suggested that women who undergo an abortion should be incarcerated. I share that consternation. But I also feel that consternation when Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and other men (always a man, never a woman) suggest that doctors who perform an abortion should be incarcerated.

Criminals or Victims? Donald Trump and the Anti-Abortion Puzzle

Geoffrey R. Stone | Posted 04.03.2016 | Politics
Geoffrey R. Stone

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.

Trump vs Matthews; Killing Roe vs Wade

Monica Bauer | Posted 03.31.2016 | Politics
Monica Bauer

Framing the argument as pro-life and pro-choice still misses the heart of it. Do we want a government enforcing something that is only called "murder" by some religions and not others, never mind the rights of atheists and agnostics? Do we want Sharia? Do we want the Morality Police?

Punishing Women

Marci Auld Glass

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.

LGBT Rights and Abortion Rights Are Inseparable

John Lewis | Posted 03.23.2016 | Queer Voices
John Lewis

The Supreme Court will likely issue its decision in Whole Woman's Health the last week of June. LGBT people should care about women's right to safe and legal abortion not only because it's the right thing to do but because our two movements depend on each other.

As An Abortion Provider, I Know Firsthand Why The Right To Choose Matters

Tenessa MacKenzie | Posted 03.17.2016 | Women

The decision to terminate a pregnancy can be complex, it can be simple, or it can just be what is best for the person in that moment. As a doctor and abortion provider, it is my duty to convey why the right to access safe and legal abortion matters.

This Is About Abortion

I don't want to make that choice for another woman and I don't want someone to make it for me. What I do want is more handholding, more support, more love, more compassion, more space for grief and anything and everything else that comes up.

What Prayerfully Pro-Choice Looks Like

Rev. Susan Russell

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.

For Christians, Does Being Pro-Life Lead More Souls to Hell?

From a strictly biblical point of view, being born on Earth is a test. All our actions will eventually be judged by an omnipotent God who will determine whether we go to heaven or hell. Our deeds, sinful or not, determine where we spend eternity.
