Barack Obama and Michelle Obama photo
  • Aww, this is adorable: Michelle Obama tells People magazine the president “tucks her in” each night.  ”We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I’m usually in bed before anybody,” she said. “He’ll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we’ll talk. He’s like, ‘Ready to be tucked?’ I’m like, ‘Yes I am.’” So cute. [Daily Mail UK]
  • Also, “Glee” star Jane Lynch appears in a new video released by the Obama administration emphasizing the president’s support of gay rights. [Celebrity Cafe]

  • Levi Johnston is supposedly broke and living with his mom after spending his Playgirl fortune on “guns, boats and four-wheelers.” Say what you will about Bristol Palin, but at least she’s the more responsible parent. (Oh, and Levi has another baby on the way, remember!) [Celebrity Cafe]

Today's Lady News photo
  • Two female Army reservists are suing the government to overturn the ban on women in front-line combat roles. The women have pointed out that the ban will restrict their careers and affect future earnings, promotion, advancement and retirement benefits. Elsewhere in the military, the Pentagon has changed policies to open up 14,000 additional positions to women. [San Francisco Gate]
  • Also, a defense authorization bill proposed in the Senate today would authorize women for frontline combat positions. The proposal was offered by Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY). [Huffington Post]
  • Senator Barbara Mikulski is pushing an expansion of the 1962 Equal Pay Act, which limits circumstances in which men and women could be paid differently. The bill would also allow employees to sue employers if they can prove they were unfairly treated. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

If you were to ask most people if a woman should have to risk her own life while going through labor, I think they would say no. 

If you were to ask most people if they believe abortions should be safely performed under a doctor’s care, I think they would say yes. 

So why, then, did a new Gallup poll released yesterday say that the percentage of Americans willing to identify themselves as “pro-choice” is at a record low? Keep reading »
