Levi Johnston, infamous for his association with former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, and his now-girlfriend Sunny are expecting a child together and have informed the press that the pregnancy was unplanned. Instead of mocking Levi’s many adventures in contraceptive use (or lack thereof), let’s have a serious discussion about how to expand access and adherence to the various methods that are available to those who do not wish to become pregnant.
Sarah Palin’s son Track is expecting a baby his new wife and it looks like the baby was conceived before their May wedding. With two children experiencing pregnancies outside of marriage and three children at home, maybe it’s time for the Palin’s to rethink sex education.
In her new memoir, the country’s most famous teen mom and abstinence ambassador claims that Levi Johnston “stole” her virginity but does not believe it was rape; a puzzling distinction.
A change to the justifiable homicide statute in South Dakota, find free condoms with your iPhone app in New York City, a quick run-through of five bad abortion bills, NARAL plans to take fight to the grassroots, and Sarah Palin is too feminist?

Many scholars and activists argue that women’s liberation rests on a foundation of full reproductive options. Feminists For Life believes the opposite, arguing that being “prolife” (that is, anti-abortion) is inextricably linked to female empowerment.
Sarah Palin’s Alaska belongs to Senator Lisa Murkowski now. The Republican who ran an independent write-in campaign against Tea Party and Sarah Palin-backed candidate Republican Joe Miller will serve another term as U.S. Senator for Alaska.
It’s Veterans Day so I’m reminding myself (and others who need it) that our female vets are in need of gender specific health care upon returning home from combat; Sarah Palin and the Tea Party want less government – unless it has to do with abortion restrictions; a drug manufacturer of breast cancer treatment drugs adds cancer-causing agents to its drugs; and anorexic women face more unplanned pregnancies than do women who don’t suffer from the disorder.
Sarah Palin is back on her death panel kick, just in time for Halloween, plus commentary on dubious breast cancer “awareness” campaigns and anti-gay bullying.
Choice, freedom, and morality in the feminist language wars: If “choice” is problematic, then perhaps a better place to start is “freedom.”
