As women, the LGBTQ community, and Latinos gain political and consumer power, Coors and its competitors have scrambled to target these groups. But the family behind the company continues to pump millions of dollars into powerful anti-choice, anti-immigrant organizations.
Planned Parenthood is certainly the target, but its destruction is not the goal, any more than destroying ACORN was the true goal back in 2008. Destruction would be a happy side effect, but the true goal is to destroy the pathway for women to have access to legal and safe abortions.
House Republicans on Tuesday pulled a popular breast cancer research funding bill over unfounded concerns that it would indirectly fund Planned Parenthood.
Marco Rubio said the Heritage Foundation’s work on immigration is “not a legitimate study.” He’s right. The author of the study, Robert Rector, has a long history of producing studies of questionable legitimacy.
Suddenly, GOP Congressmen are very worried about violence against women. You know, when there’s abortion involved.
Thanks to the Akin outburst, the extremist positions taken by anti-choice politicians are now finally becoming more visible to a larger public.
Oh hey! Looks like the anti-choice folks found a new way to come up with their own set of “facts”!
One year after an earthquake devastated Haiti, much of the promised relief and reconstruction aid has not reached those most in need. In fact, the nation’s tragedy has served as an opportunity to further enrich corporate interests.
For the first time in eight long years, the Senate held a hearing on ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a treaty which conservatives believe would end the world as we know it.
Concern for women’s rights among many conservatives extends only as far as it can be used against our enemies.
