Cathi Herrod demonstrates how anti-choicers erase women’s contributions, experiences, etc.

I’ll say one thing for Howie Fischer of Arizona Capitol Media Services – he has a long record of thorough coverage on the battle over reproductive rights here and of getting opponents of it on record. Fischer’s report on Wednesday’s Senate Health and Human Services Committee vote on SB1318 contains this interesting nugget from Center […]

Doug Ducey knows that anti-choicers have an image problem

Photo: Howard Fischer, AZ Capitol Media Services So Center for AZ Policy had its God botherer hoedown at the State Legislature on Wednesday, in which they were given a speech by Governor Ducey where he said this: “I am proudly pro-life” the governor told a rally of members of the anti-abortion Center for Arizona Policy.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich decided to […]

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is asking for dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a teacher who was brutally assaulted and raped after being left in an unguarded prison classroom with […]

Yes, a US Senator did just say that handwashing should be voluntary.

They are often supported by the public in this because they rarely mention the specific rules that are oppressing business owners and stifling prosperity, preferring instead to describe them using […]

Anti-choicers have a strange lack of concern for the “safety” of women giving birth

I’m in the middle of reading Katha Pollitt’s Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights, which is, among other things, an excellent examination of the illogical and inconsistent stances of anti-choice activists.
