Congress Rejects Sex-Selection Abortion Ban

Today's Lady News photo
  • Some good news for once: the House of Representatives rejected the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), a ban on abortions based on the gender of the fetus. The bill would have imposed jail time on medical professionals who terminated pregnancies if they had “knowledge” that the woman sought the abortion because of the gender of the fetus.  While sex-selective abortions do occur in some countries — in particular China, which favors boys — it has not been deemed a considerable problem in the U.S. Instead, abortion rights groups said this bill’s only purpose was to restrict reproductive rights. Additionally, Asian-Americans activists worried the bill would contribute to racial profiling of women seeking abortions. [AP]
  • Only two percent of registered female voters say “women’s issues” are a top priority for them in this year’s election, according to a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Instead, 60 percent of registered female voters say the economy is the top issue, followed by health care. [Los Angles Times] Keep reading »

  • French fashion magazine Jalouse has retracted a quote it said came from Megan Fox. Jalouse admitted yesterday that Fox conducted her interview with the mag in English and was misquoted in translation as saying, “I wouldn’t trade my place with an unattractive girl.” She wrote on Facebook, “The actual comment, the context and its intention are grossly distorted and misrepresented here. … I’ve never made vapid self serving comments and in contradiction am uncontrollably self deprecating.” [NYMag.com]

“I’ve always felt a little misrepresented in the world. I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe I was kind of a bimbo … I was the dude that was naked all the time with girls, and that’s fine, no problem with that. … There are two kinds of men. There are men who are fucking misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”

– I’m glad to hear that Adam Levine from Maroon 5 is not a “fucking misogynist pig.” I’m also glad to hear that loving the opposite sex is a socially legit reason for promiscuity. Next time some commenters give The Frisky bloggers grief for slutting it up, I’m just going to tell them, “You don’t understand. We want to sleep with a lot of men because we love them so much!

(P.S. A little birdie in our office who knows Adam says he’s not a bimbo at all, but “savvy, talented and hardworking.” So there you go.) [Details]

  • Kathie Lee Gifford accidentally asked Martin Short about his wife, who has been dead since 2010, on-air. Awkward!  He didn’t correct her, but sweetly said he’s “madly in love” with his late wife.  After the show, Kathie Lee tweeted an apology to Short and commended him on his “enormous grace and kindness.” I agree — he handled this gaffe with class.

  • Apparently some people are pissed off about a photograph of two Air Force servicewomen, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, breastfeeding their children in uniform, calling it a “disgrace.” What, soldiers aren’t supposed to have boobs (or babies)? Soldiers aren’t supposed to appear nurturing? Echegoyen-McCabe told MSNBC, “There isn’t a policy saying we can or cannot breast-feed in uniform. I think it’s something that every military mom who is breast-feeding has done.” The Air Force said it has no policy against breastfeeding in uniform, but released a statement urging “airmen” to project a “professional image at all times while in uniform.” Frankly, I think these photos are extremely cool!
