Last night Rachel Maddow continued her dogged reporting on the extreme anti-choice right, covering Operation Rescue’s upcoming protests against Dr. Leroy Carhart’s Nebraska clinic.
Merely to be in the clinic — in the waiting room or procedure room — is not to understand the choice a woman makes.
Bob McDonnell’s position on abortion is not incidental to his career as a politician; it’s central, and it’s also extreme.
Last night Rachel Maddow reported on the contacts Scott Roeder has had with other anti-choice extremists while in prison awaiting trial.
Dr. Tiller believed that “abortion is a matter of survival for women.” It was for me.
In talking about abortion, if inaccurate, misleading or ideologically-loaded language is being used, or myths are being held as truths, our communication and understanding is always going to be limited.
A disturbing implication of “abortion reduction” is that our society should more closely monitor women who want abortions and the reasons they want abortions.
Cristina Page takes one for the team and goes up against Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman on a PBS “Issue Clash,” debating late-term abortions.
In a resolution that passed 423 to 0, the House of
Representatives condemned the murder of my friend Dr. George Tiller. Now it is
the Senate’s turn.
Senators Jeanne Shaheen, Amy Klobuchar, and Barbara Boxer
have introduced a Senate version of the House’s resolution. They
need our help to convince their colleagues to sign on.
But these resolutions are just the beginning. Congress
has much more to do.
The feds will probably stop short of investigating Tiller’s murder as a terrorist attack. That designation would unleash vast federal powers to investigate large swathes of the radical anti-choice movement.
