Today’s Lady News: Afghan Teen Flees “Honor Killing”

Today's Lady News photo
  • If you read one news article today, read this one: NPR has a powerful story about a teenage girl in rural Afghanistan who ran away from her family after she feared a so-called “honor killing” by her brothers because she talked to a boy on her cellphone. The girl ended up staying on a military base until she could be placed in an Afghan women’s shelter, where she eventually was matched up with a husband. It’s a bizarre happily-ever-after story, but one I found extremely touching. [NPR]

young Barack Obama photo

Once upon a time, a young college student named Barry transferred from Occidental College in California to Columbia University. The year was 1981. The fashion styles were perhaps regrettable. And the young man was Barack Obama, who later went on to become the first African-American president of the United States. In a new cover story in Vanity Fair, two of the president’s ex-girlfriends from that time — Alex McNear and Genevieve Cook — opened up about Obama as a young man. That includes what everyone wants to know — how he wooed women. Keep reading »

The U.S. Department of Justice announced yesterday that it will launch an investigation into how the University of Montana at Missoula handled over 80 sexual assault reports in the past three years and whether proper procedures were followed.

Eleven of those alleged sexual assaults took place in the past 18 months and at least two of them involve footballer players from the school’s University of Montana Grizzlies team. As recently as December, a female student alleged she was gang raped after possibly being drugged by several male students.

NY State Senator Ruben Diaz Sensibly Invokes Hitler In Abortion Rights Debate

Hitler photo

“Hitler was pro-choice. He chose to send the Jews to Auschwitz. That was not their choice that was Hitler’s choice. Murderers, assassins and criminals are pro-choice. They choose to put a gun to your head and take your life. That is not your choice. That is their choice.”

— This is New York State Senator Ruben Diaz is a email newsletter, keeping the level of debate rational and not at all racheting up emotions for political gain. Sen. Diaz’s newsletter went out in response to the NY governor’s support of the Reproductive Health Act, which will allow women to get rare late-term abortions if the woman’s health is at risk or if the fetus has a fatal medical issue. Currently, late-term abortions are only legal if the life of the mother is at risk.

Of course, Sen. Diaz isn’t the first politician to invoke the Holocaust on the subject of abortion; slavery is also a popular comparison made by anti-abortion protesters. Alas, that doesn’t make doing so any more tasteful. [PolitickerVillage Voice]
