Iowa’s so-called “fetal pain” bill finally makes it out of committee after weeks of wrangling.
Three states are having three very different reactions to the “fetal pain” bills being proposed in their legislatures.
House Judiciary Committee moves H.R. 3 to the full House, three abortion bills survive Iowa’s bill funnel, the governor of South Dakota says he’s likely to sign bill requiring CPC counseling, an elected official is surprised at the reaction when he says women belong at home raisin’ babies, and a Kenyan official suggests banishment for those with HIV.
Tennessee wants to ban any mention of homosexuality in grade school, Iowa may be legalizing the murder of abortion providers, and Planned Parenthood clinics – and their advocates – across the country warn about the devastating impact of the Pence amendment.
Iowa’s personhood bill has passed the House; President Obama’s FY 2012 budget and women’s and girls’ health; a new kind of HIV vaccine; and Mississippi midwifery!
Anti-choice group intervenes in CRR’s OK ultrasound lawsuit, Virginia moves to repeal mandatory HPV vaccine, protesters scare woman away from Planned Parenthood and she ends up at Gosnell’s office, and please enjoy a bible if you’re pregnant and scared.
As the House prepares to vote on the “Repeal the Puppy-Strangling Job-Vivisecting O-Commie-Care Act,” or whatever they’re calling it, the White House actually seems to have its act together on offense.
Randall Terry wants to show aborted fetuses during the 2012 SuperBowl, Steve King wants to know if HHS is giving telemedicine grant money to PP of the Heartland, two thumbs up for an Iowa state rep standing up for women, and how many women try to self-abort?
An Ohio abortion ban may be on the way, Rep. Pence explains his ludicrous Title X legislation, regular screenings essential to early detection of cervical cancer, NYC school chief under fire for flippant remark on birth control, and the Iowa Board of Medicine will not sanction PP of the Heartland for telemed abortions.
Continuing investigation into Dr. Tiller’s murder; tests for eclampsia; more women giving birth early; Nebraska tries to prevent the spread of telemedicine; and a few commentaries on MTV’s No Easy Decision.
