irish women call for a nationwide strike if they don't get a referendum on the c


ireland's abortion laws are among the most barbaric in the world -- among its many deficits, it forces women to carry unviable fetuses to term, making them labor to deliver babies who live short hours in extreme pain before dying before them. the ban also provides for 14 year prison sentences for women who import pharmaceuticals used to induce abortion. an "ad-hoc, non-affiliated group of activists, academics, artists and trade unionists" calling itself strike4repeal are set to strike on march 8 -- international women's day, also the day without a woman protests in america -- if the government doesn't call for a referendum on the abortion law before then. the polish and irish abortion laws are similarly overbroad, and share a similar origin: conservative catholic lobbyists, with church






campuses like queens college discriminate against pro-life women


public schools in chapel hill, north carolina have canceled class this coming wednesday expecting so many employees to be participating in a “women’s strike” that lists publicly sponsored abortion and contraception as one of its primary motivations.the strike was presaged by a “women’s march” in january organized under a set of “unity principles,” chief being “open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion.” in other words, while these events are portrayed as an inclusive demonstration under the auspices of “women’s rights,” nothing could be further from the truth.pro-life women, including activists from secular pro-life organizations, were barred and shamed out of participating in the march, and their concerns written out of the strike motivations. these women’s organizers do not seek to

feminists protesting trump ‘just have a problem with women in power’


white house adviser kellyanne conway revealed on thursday that she refused to call herself a feminist because she is not “anti-male” or “pro-abortion.”during an interview at the conservative political action conference (cpac) in washington, d.c., conway told the audience that the word “feminist” was never used in her childhood home. “i was raised to be a strong and independent woman without anybody seeing the word feminist or have any political conversation,” she said. “we were taught to be freethinking, independent, look at your goals. and that old saying, ‘you can never go home’ is never true.”conway argued that women belong in the conservative movement, but she encouraged them not to called themselves feminists.“it’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist in the classic sense becaus






overregulation is forcing women to have late-term abortions


in my experience as an ob-gyn, when women decide to end a pregnancy, they want to obtain an abortion quickly. one good reason is the simple fact that early abortion is associated with a lower risk of medical complications compared to later abortion. in many settings, however, women face barriers accessing early care, ranging from mandatory waiting periods to difficulty putting the money together to pay for the procedure.texas is an unfortunate illustration of how restrictions on access can force women to obtain abortion later in pregnancy. in 2013, the legislature there passed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. more than half of the state’s clinics closed, forcing women living outside of the biggest cities to travel farther to access care and increasing the wait times






lawmakers must have ‘testicular fortitude’ to abolish women’s abortion rights


the texas senate on wednesday heard testimony from anti-abortion activists who demanded a complete ban on a woman’s right to choose. over the course of about five hours, state senators on the health and human services committee heard testimony about three bills that would ban certain abortion procedures, outlaw the donation of fetal tissue and require aborted fetuses to be buried or cremated. however, many of the activists who testified said that the proposed restrictions did not go far enough.one activist from the group abolish abortion texas demanded that lawmakers enact a “complete total abolition of abortion regardless what the supreme court says.”amy hedtke of the group liberty and justice for all questioned the manhood of senators who refused to file a companion bill to house bill 94

kellyanne conway, the first woman to run a successful u.s. presidential campaign, said thursday that she doesn't consider herself a feminist "in a classic sense" because the term is associated with being "anti-male" and "pro-abortion."conway, who now serves as white house counselor to president trump, made her comments at the conservative political action conference at national harbor in maryland, where she also praised trump's hiring of women and encouraged women to run for president."it's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and i'm neither anti-male or pro-abortion," conway said during a conversation on stage with conservative commentator mercedes schlapp. "so, there's an individual fe

experts: science behind 'abortion reversal' is flawed


chicago — lawmakers in several states are considering requirements for doctors to inform women seeking medical abortions about an unproven procedure called "abortion reversal."doctors' groups oppose the bills because of flawed science and ethical concerns. there is no evidence the procedure works and little information about its safety.the procedure involves shots of the hormone progesterone given if a woman changes her mind after the first step of a medical abortion.since 2015, arkansas and south dakota have enacted laws requiring doctors to tell women about it. an arizona law was challenged in court and later repealed. bills are under consideration in colorado, indiana, north carolina and utah."it's really concerning that legislatures are passing laws interfering in the doctor-patient re

how the gop obamacare replacement targets medicaid recipients


house republicans finally unveiled details of their plan to repeal and replace the affordable care act. unsurprisingly, one of the glaring differences between the current healthcare system and what republicans want in their anti-women dystopia is how planned parenthood gets funded…or rather unfunded.two house committees proposed their versions of what the aca would be replaced with, and they both want to prevent planned parenthood from receiving medicaid reimbursements. the proposal is an effort to appease anti-abortion activists who claim they’re pro-life when in reality they just want to defund clinics that help save lives.the frustrating part about all of this is that conservatives seem to have a difficult time understanding that taxpayer money is already barred from going toward aborti






texas gop wants to let doctors lie to women about pregnancies to trick them out


the texas gop introduced yet another anti-abortion bill that would give doctors the right to lie to their patients about their pregnancies. texas senate bill 25, also known as the “wrongful births bill” has made its way to the texas senate floor, and would prevent lawsuits against doctors if a baby is born with a disability.in reality, the bill allows doctors to withhold information about the risk of a disability from the parents, particularly in cases when the doctor thinks the individual might decide to have an abortion if provided with the information.as of feb. 1, 2017, the guttmacher institute reports 434 sexual and reproductive health provisions that have been introduced at the state-level. four anti-abortion bills have been enacted. in texas specifically, at least 6 abortion restric






indiana gop sending abortion bill back to committee again


indianapolis — indiana house republicans are taking the unusual step of reassigning an abortion bill to the same panel that narrowly approved it last week.the proposal would require abortion providers to give women information about potentially stopping drug-induced abortions midway through the procedure. the author contends the information could give women a chance to change their minds, but critics say it isn't scientifically proven that the so-called abortion reversal procedure works.republican rep. ben smaltz says the bill is returning to his panel so lawmakers can consider amending an ultrasound requirement and information on the "reversal" time period. the measure previously passed 7-6, with two republicans voting against it.democrats on the panel say they are surprised by the maneuv






anti-choice advocate admits to joy reid her ultimate goal is to make birth contr

are restrictions on the 'abortion pill' politics or science?


the food and drug administration’s restrictions on the dispensing of mifepristone — one half of the two-drug cocktail used to end a pregnancy in its first 10 weeks — “no longer makes clinical sense” and should be “expeditiously withdrawn,” experts argue in the new england journal of medicine.as a key component of a “medical” abortion, the drug marketed as mifeprex has been controversial from the start. after it was approved for marketing in the united states in 2000, anti-abortion activists tried to limit its use by pressing the fda to narrowly circumscribe the ways it can be prescribed, dispensed and used. then they pushed for states to enact laws requiring strict adherence to the fda rules. a handful of states complied.president trump has called himself a staunchly “pro-life president.”






we treated women like cattle


in new videos from live action, former planned parenthood employees reveal they treated women like livestock to fulfill corporate quotas.former planned parenthood manager ramona treviño said girls seeking contraceptives were deliberately rushed through their visits and not given proper instructions. because oral contraceptives become less effective when they’re not taken properly, a woman can easily become pregnant thinking she’s protected from pregnancy, then seek an abortion.sue thayer, a former planned parenthood manager, said during her time at the abortion giant they were required to see more and more patients in a decreasing amount of time.“women were just herded through there, really,” she said. “it is definitely not some place i would want to see my daughters to go. i wouldn’t want
