Ohio Republicans Want Women To Record Their Miscarriages

If you’re a woman and you have been pregnant, there’s a decent chance you’ve had a miscarriage, or even an abortion. Out of every pregnancy, as many as 25 percent end in a miscarriage. This a common and sad fact of human reproduction, but now Ohio lawmakers want women to sign a form to keep a […]

Abortion Rates Decline Nationwide, Except In Two Conservative States

Abortion rates are on a major decline across the United States, and while social conservatives will point to this as proof that anti-abortion laws that were passed in red states work, it’s not as simple as that. While abortion rates were down in nearly all states that data was available for, Louisiana and Michigan actually […]

MoveOn.org Petition Created To Remove Speaker John Boehner From Congress

A couple of liberal blogger sites are reporting that a MoveOn.org petition has been created to expel Speaker John Boehner from Congress and have him tried for sedition, treason and generally being a piss-poor excuse for a House Speaker.

While Republicans are rarely known for making a whole lot of sense, a tweet I saw from House Speaker John Boehner yesterday really takes the cake.  In an apparent attempt to claim that the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare,” will raise health care premiums for Ohioans by 41%, Boehner actually tweeted a link to a […]

For the GOP, it’s not about being “Pro-Life,” it’s about a Thirst for Control over Women

Lately, we’ve seen a number of sweeping anti-abortion bills passed by North Carolina, Wisconsin, Ohio, Louisiana and other states in the radical right’s all-out assault on Roe v. Wade.
