Let’s start calling these bills what they are: state-sanctioned rape. There is no other way around it.
Looking back, I now realize that finding contraception at Fordham was kind of like trying to find a suitable mate through a wanted ad. Even though you know it’s out there, you can’t believe what you have to go through to get it!
In Colorado, some of the highest-ranking GOP politicians in the state are personhood backers, even though the measure was shot down badly both here in 2008 and again in 2010. Will the same politicians who backed the personhood amendment last year jump on board again, now that personhood backers have announced plans to place the measure on the 2012 election ballot in Colorado?
I take a closer look at the Bedsider Campaign which launched last week with PSAs, a website, and other tools to help young people (ages 18-24 specifically) use contraception and avoid unplanned pregnancy. The ads are fun but is the website too light on STI information and too hard on condoms?
There are those who assert that unintended pregnancy is not a health condition and therefore prevention of unintended pregnancy is not preventive health care. From my personal practice I can say that I cannot disagree more.
Researchers at the University of Chicago interviewed African-American, first-time adolescent mothers to determine what obstacles (other than cost) preventing them from obtaining IUDs.
What if we were as devoted, as critical, as insistent when it came to contraceptive technologies, as we are when it comes to cell phones?
Candidates vying for the Republican nomination love to talk about their respect for human life whenever they get the chance. Last night on CNN Mitt Romney threw in his own unsolicited quip about unborn life while talking about health care reform. While seemingly harmless, what I heard was, “We’re taking away your birth control!” Here’s why.
Know your sexual rights and ask yourself: What is my responsibility? What are my sexual responsibilities?
When my mom knew my birth control was not only preventing “changes in my mood” but also the chance that I could get pregnant, she stopped paying for my birth control; she said, “I am not supporting your habit.”
