Coat Hanger Abortions? No Biggie!

  • Here’s a lovely comment on the value of a woman’s life from Republican Mississippi State Represenative Bubba Carpenter. In a video filmed a county GOP meeting, Rep. Carpenter is heard saying (emphasis mine), “You have [pro-choice supporters] … like, ‘Well, the poor pitiful women that can’t afford to go out of state are just going to start doing them at home with a coat hanger.’ That’s what we’ve heard over and over and over. But hey, you have to have moral values. You have to start somewhere, and that’s what we’ve decided to do.” Women permanently injuring themselves or even dying from unsafe, illegal coat hanger abortions, just like in the good ol’ days? Hey, no biggie! [Huffington Post]

The Best Part Of Working On A Campaign? Sex With A Secret Service Guy, Apparently

sexy vote photo

As much as I love it when women’s magazines try to inject political coverage in between the beauty tips, sometimes the end result is a painful FAIL.

Take a piece on Glamour.com about working on a presidential campaign: “It’s like one giant summer camp whirlwind!” What does that mean, exactly? Well, if you’re a woman working in the campaign trail, it means “a lot of sex and drinking,” trying to sleep with a Secret Service agent and fattening up on all the free muffins.  Keep reading »

“I just sort of lost my head for awhile. I did some dumb interviews and it woke me up. … It was a very strange time. It sort of, like, rocketed me into adulthood. It was a violent crash into being an adult. So for a couple years, it was all figuring it all out. I’m glad I stayed out of the spotlight. I think back then I would have said ‘Give me two weeks! Let me get out! Let me go on ‘Ellen’ and explain myself!’ And it was, like, ‘No, idiot, go away. Be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the fourth year.’”

– John Mayer is responding, of course, to his 2010 interview with Playboy magazine in which he got really overshare-y about his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Simpson. He called Jess “sexual napalm,” said she was like “crack cocaine” to him in bed, and said of her “If you charged me $10,000 to f**k you, I would start selling all my s**t just to keep f**king you.” (He later apologized to her in writing, but Jessica said she has not and doesn’t ever plan to accept his apology.) And then there was the time John got blabby with paparazzi about his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston, which got him in big trubs with her Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Catholic College Drops Entire Student Health Plan Rather Than Cover Birth Control

Today's Lady News photo
  • A Catholic college in Ohio will drop its entire student health insurance plan beginning in the fall 2012 semester rather than cover birth control under its policy. Franciscan University would have been required to do so under Obama’s health care reform, given how the school is not a religious institution (i.e. it employs many non-religious “civilians”). It is not clear why the school didn’t opt for the compromise proposed by the government, which was to have the insurers pick up the tab if the employer wouldn’t. What a shame that the university would do this to their students.  [Huffington Post
  • This week marks the official beginning of women soldiers integrating into nine previously all-male units in the Army, which will open up 14,000 jobs. The policy change will eventually go Army-wide. [TIMEBoston.com]
