Would be nice if women got to “focus on more important things”.

“Young lady, cover yourself! You are an abomination upon this institution!” “Young man, go on with your cheeky t-shirt! You will one day make a fine candidate for office!” The GOP nominee for President Donald Trump is attempting to distract from his considerable bad history with women* by attacking the probable Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton […]

Anti-choicers continue to hound Phoenix clinic, with Channel 12’s help

While many anti-choicers still keep up the thin pretense in public that they don’t wish to punish women for abortion, they have never made any bones about their intention to go after doctors who perform abortions via legislation targeting them and smear campaigns.
