Morning Roundup: Racist Anti-abortion Flyers at Princeton Theological Seminary


The WHO lists 30 essential drugs for maternal and child health, Montanans don’t want to ban abortion, Princeton Theological Seminarians upset by distribution of racist flyers, and health care reform turns one!

  • The World Health Organization has released a list of 30 medications that it deems essential for maternal and child health.
  • A recent poll in Montana shows that citizens there do not want to ban abortion. Fifty-six percent opposed a proposal to amend the state constitution banning the procedure, while 35 percent support such a measure.
  • Students at Princeton Theological Seminary are upset by the distribution of racist anti-abortion flyers at the school. CBS News reports that, “Among the fliers was one that displayed a noose and another with the words ‘in the new klan lynching is for amateurs.’”  The American Independent reports that Life Dynamics, based in Texas, is responsible for at least some of the flyers, which advertise a DVD linking abortion and slavery.
  • Happy Birthday Health Care Reform! You’re one-year-old today!
