Same data, totally different spins? And here I thought that only happened in America.
New Mexico’s Chief Medical Officer is fired hours after suggesting condoms could prevent STIs among the state’s teenagers; the United Kingdom sees an increase in STIs after the government pulls funding for social marketing campaigns; and the Vatican takes aim at a nun who believes masturbation, same-sex behavior, and same-sex marriage is okay.
“Sting” operations carried out by anti-choice groups who want to eliminate women’s access to abortion and birth control have become an issue in the United Kingdom where misrepresentation of the issue of sex selection is being used in a new series of attacks on providers.
The infant daughter of a 37-year-old rape and torture victim living under asylum in the United Kingdom is taken from her. Why? She was deemed unstable because she was grieving the death of her 15-year-old son.
The idea that the number of women travelling to Britain for abortions is the sum total of Irish women actually having abortions would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic.
Draft regulations in the UK aim to tell women the truth about abortion, Medicaid-covered midwifery in Idaho, the Pope talks to doctors instead of women, Wyoming rejects mandatory ultrasound bill, and dramatic reductions in unplanned pregnancies by giving women a year of birth control at a time.
The U.K. pregnancy services ad brings in a bevy of complaints, Mexico approves the morning after pill for rape victims, Crist still waits for a bill, and mandatory ultrasounds are found mostly useless.
