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

Here are a few of the news items we’ve been following:

  • Our own Haydee Morales partnered with a PPNYC Adult Role Model Rosa Ocampo to write a great op ed for El Diario about our ever-evolving knowledge about sexual health and sexuality.
  • The anti-choice politician and former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford is considering challenging NY State Sentaor Kristen Gillibrand for her seat. President Obama has urged him not to run.
  • In health care news, The House and Senate are slowly getting closer to a final health care bill.
  • Meanwhile, the NYTimes has an in-depth profile on Rep Bart Stupak that was originally titled “Congressman wears scorn as medal in abortion fight” (the title has since changed).
  • The Guardian UK has an interesting article (that was reprinted in RH Reality Check) on how health care reform should be about expanding all maternal rights, not restricting abortion rights.
  • In somewhat health-care-related news, the Atlantic has an interesting piece on where money donated to “Republicans for Choice” actually goes (hint: not to pro-choice Republicans).
  • The NY Times is covering the trial of Scott Roeder, the man who murdered Dr. George Tiller, and whose trial is now delayed.
  • Mary Daly, prominent feminist theologian, passed away last Wednesday.
  • And finally, the Federal Government officially no longer discriminates against people on the basis of their gender identity when it comes to employment.

That’s all we’ve got. What have you been reading?
