Dispatches From The War On Women: The Crusade Against Planned Parenthood  Marches On

.Dispatches From The War On Women: The Crusade Against Planned Parenthood Marches On

Welcome to Dispatches,  Fight   back   against   the  War on Women.

It really never ends for Planned Parenthood, does it? To begin with there is  the legislative campaign to drive them out of business by de-funding them. Then they are  the target of a fraudulent and offensive smear campaign that  wants to paint delivering health care to poor women is really promoting  sex-selective eugenics. The amount of misinformation dispensed supporting a  religious crusade against female autonomy is really nothing short of  staggering.

Ann Romney waded back into the murky waters of the mommy wars, this time  declaring she thinks its neat-o that some women don’t have a choice but  work full time and raise their children and struggle immensely doing it.

She has help from fellow Republicans who have a curious way of trying to recruit women voters.

Fans of Ched Evans are a classy bunch. Evans is a successful English footballer for  Sheffield United currently serving time for raping a teenager to drunk too  consent to sex. After his sentencing his fans immediately went to Twitter to  start shaming her in defense of Evans. Rape culture? What rape culture?

Or how about this. A women’s prayer group is praying that women  advocated for a secular military get breast cancer and die.

The Trayvon Martin tragedy has a lot of folks thinking about privilege and accountability.

During the oral arguments in defense of Arizona’s terrible immigration law Justice Scalia summed up his take on the issue by asking if  the Obama administration was “objecting to harassing the people who have no  business being here?” The question was bellowed in response from the mere  suggestion it was racial profiling. Even more distressing than Scalia’s obvious  racism was the fact that nobody corrected the justice that not every Latino in  Arizona (or anywhere for that matter) is an undocumented immigrant.

One Tennessee lawmaker thinks teens commit suicide because  they have bad parents. After this piece in the New York times on the growing trend of  criminalizing motherhood, it’s almost easy to see why he’d think that way.

Let’s move on to some good news. California is advancing a bill that would ban the  destructive “pray away the gay” treatments.

Pennsylvania elected its first openly gay state  legislator.

Did you see this lovely tribute to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Speaking of emotional, there’s this video of the fallout from the Ohio den mother who was  fired for being lesbian.

Just because: President Obama slow jams the news.
