What you should have read, but might have missed, last week.

Here’s what was happening last week:

  • New York State Senator Hiram Monserrate, who was convicted of misdemeanor assault of his girlfriend, was sentenced to three years supervised probation. PPNYC appeared on WNBC 4, calling for his expulsion from the State Senate.
  • In sad news, the New York State Senate rejected a same-sex marriage bill by a vote of 38-to-24.
  • There are a number of fantastic Letters to the Editor in the NY Times today on the “generational divide” in the fight for abortion rights.
  • The U.S. Senate passed the Mikulski amendment, requiring insurance companies to offer free mammograms and other preventive services to women.
  • However, Senator Nelson introduced a Stupak-like amendment into the Senate health care reform bill.
  • Which will be voted on tomorrow.
  • Dr. Carhart, a doctor in Nebraska who provides abortions, is facing increased threats and protesters.
  • Parts of Australia are mandating boys take classes in feminism.
  • Scarleteen and RH REality Check have teamed up to write a piece on the 10 best reasons to wear condoms.

Don’t forget to turn into Anderson Cooper 360 tonight to watch PPNYC talk about the real-life affects of the Stupak and/or Nelson amendment would have on women’s health!
