A new evidence-based report from the United Nations Population Fund recommends that “unnecessary restrictions on abortion should be removed and governments should provide access to safe abortion services.” The debate over abortion is now less about values and now a struggle between denialism and the facts.
In a move of utter predictability, a major anti-choice website angrily denounces a strong, multi-year study that shows that contraception access reduces the abortion rate. Which is, of course, more consistent with hating on sex than any concern for preventing abortion.
In their zeal to attack Planned Parenthood, anti-choice activists pretend Planned Parenthood offered abortions to tornado victims, then scrubbed the article.
Jill Stanek was named "Worst Person" by Keith Olbermann, to which Stanek responded, missing the point entirely.
