Since 2010, Sean Fieler, a New Jersey-based hedge fund manager and fervent Catholic, has personally contributed nearly $18 million to political candidates and causes that align with his anti-choice, anti-LGBT, and pro-theocracy views, according to an analysis of tax filings and campaign finance records by RH Reality Check.
Taking the temperature of the anti-choice movement post-Hobby Lobby, one thing becomes clear: Its members are getting braver all the time about admitting out loud that they’re just anti-sex and out to get your birth control.
According to statements made at a recent conference attended by RH Reality Check, the National Right to Life Committee plans to perform stings of abortion clinics, while also pushing for an expansion of the laws that govern abortion to allow third parties to sue the clinics in civil court for alleged violations.
“You should join us!” the founder of the anti-choice video group told RH Reality Check at a “march on media” rally in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that saw 150 or so people.
I fear that a possible consequence of these Live Action videos may be a chilling effect on the free and open conversation between clinic staff and patients that is such an important part of abortion care.
It must be almost election day, the “stings” are coming out.
Despite the group’s claim that the clinics “intended” to break an Arizona law against sex-selection abortion, the state says there is no evidence of a crime.
While researching PRENDA, RH Reality Check reached out to Lila Rose’s PR representative with some questions about her video and the pending legislation. And we got… crickets.
The change would effectively open the floodgates for abstinence only programs to implement curricula in Wisconsin if a school board so chooses.
In preparation for what may eventually be another Lila Rose grainy expose trumpeted by the Right, it’s helpful to brush up on where millions and millions of tax-dollars are going to pay for sex “education:” ineffective and stigmatizing abstinence-only-until marriage programs.
