Republicans facing off in Saturday night’s presidential debate sparred over whose anti-choice stances were the most draconian.
Anti-choice legislation proliferates most in states with GOP-held legislatures, and the vast majority of bills are sponsored by Republican lawmakers.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday dismissed criticism of Republican efforts to deny people reproductive health care as being “completely made up” by the “condom police” in an effort to scare voters—glossing over his own attempts to block access to contraception.
Planned Parenthood’s Columbia Health Center in Missouri halted its abortion services last week, as the clinic is set to lose hospital admitting privileges on December 1.
A four-month investigation by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson found no evidence that Planned Parenthood performs illegal abortions or that its clinics sell fetal tissue for profit “rather than simply recovering costs.”
A new timeline from RH Reality Check illustrates the history of HB 2, the omnibus anti-abortion bill passed by Texas conservatives in 2013, and the court fight leading to today’s Supreme Court order.
Conference organizers announced that more than 1,600 people are expected to attend the National Religious Liberties Conference, which will include scheduled appearances by Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal—all strident opponents of abortion rights.
State investigators focused on the clinics’ handling of fetal tissue and found no evidence of wrongdoing, no different than the results of state investigations around the country.
McCarthyism is defined in the dictionary as the practice of making accusations unsupported by proof or based on slight, doubtful, or irrelevant evidence, and the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism. I’d say today’s radicalized GOP has them both down pat.
Marco Rubio came out and said that Planned Parenthood is trying to push unsuspecting women into abortion to profit off them. At this point, it’s clear that we’re dealing with a full-fledged conspiracy theory.
