Today’s Lady News: Mike Huckabee Slams Natalie Portman For Having Baby “Out Of Wedlock”

  • Republican presidential nominee wannabe Mike Huckabee opened his big gaping maw to condemn Natalie Portman for having a baby “out of wedlock” with her fiancé, Benjamin Millipied. Huckabee criticized Portman on a conservative radio show.
    “One of the things that’s troubling is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet who boasts of, ‘Hey look, you know, we’re having children, we’re not married, but we’re having these children, and they’re doing just fine.’ But there aren’t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie. And I think it gives a distorted image that yes, not everybody hires nannies, and caretakers, and nurses. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock.”

    I see the point Huckabee is getting at, but I’d say the bigger problem isn’t the single moms but the dads who choose not to be in their kids lives or who aren’t worthy of being there. Why cast judgment on the single mothers alone? [The Huffington Post]

NYC Forces “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” To Disclose Motives To Women

Some good news, finally: New York City’s City Council voted yesterday to require so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” to be more transparent about their anti-abortion motives to women.

There are different types of CPCs, but many are run by anti-abortion extremists which intentionally appear to look like abortion clinics from the outside but in actuality will dissuade women from ending a pregnancy through any tactic at all. The city council demanded that CPCs inform women on advertising and signs in entrances and waiting rooms that they do not actually provide abortions, emergency contraceptives or prenatal care. CPC employees will also be required to provide that information if asked about it over the phone or in person. NYC’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to sign the bill into law. Keep reading »

All The Deets On Bristol Palin’s Memoir, “Not Afraid Of Life”

Bristol Palin‘s memoir is coming out this summer and it will be called Not Afraid Of Life. Kudos to you for making reference to anti-abortion propaganda, Bristol! Not Afraid Of Life, which is being published by William Morrow, will cover her 20 years on Earth, including her appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” her religious faith, and presumably her mother’s run as the Republican nominee for vice president of the United Stated. I, for one, am praying Bristol will dish some dirt on her baby daddy ex, Levi Johnston, but unfortunately the Palins seem to be too classy for that. More realistically, she’ll just tell us alllll about how every pregnant teen girl should totally have a baby because it’s so easy to get nationally televised TV gigs and book deals. Gooooooo abstinence?! [NY Times] Keep reading »
