Respect the right…

The latest anti-choice brainchild appears to be the innocuously-enough worded “”Reducing the Need for Abortions Initiative.” Recently approved by the House, the bill seeks to fund family planning and pregnancy prevention programs. As I mentioned the other day, that is all well and good, but forgive me if these programs sound like a not so […]

O’er the weekend

Not sure if anyone caught the ridiculous Washington Post Style Section story on Hillary Clinton’s cleavage about a week ago. (Yes, they devoted an entire story to the topic). In addition to the various Wash Post and NY Times critiques of the story, yours truly published a letter to the editor in Sat’s Washington Post, […]
