Today’s Lady News: Who Gets Abortions In The U.S.?

  • Who gets abortions in the U.S.? The Guttmacher Institute, a nonpartisan reproductive health organization, sought to profile the women who get abortions in this graphically-curious video released on April 28. Most women who are get abortions are in their 20s. Six out of 10 women who terminate a pregnancy already have kids and many have two or more kids. Needing to care for their existing children is often a primary reason for why women who already have kids choose to end a pregnancy. Three out of four women who have abortions describe themselves as religiously affiliated and Catholic women have abortions at approximately the same rate as women overall. In 2008, four out of 10 women who had abortions lived below the federal poverty line. White women account for 36 percent of abortions, followed by black women at 30 percent and Latinas at 25 percent.

  • A Texas cheerleader who was kicked off the team for refusing to cheer for her alleged rapist was denied a U.S. Supreme court review yesterday. Months ago, a federal appeals court said the young woman, known only as H.S., was cheering for her school and not for herself and therefore was obliged to follow the dictates of the team. H.S. claims she was raped in 2008 by Rakheem Bolton, a member of the football team, at a party. Bolton plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in 2010. Blech, what a gross story.

Mother’s Day Style Stealer: Roseanne’s Relaxed ’90s Look

It’d be a little bit of a stretch to call Roseanne Barr, the star of the revolutionary ’90s sitcom “Roseanne,” a style icon. But we do love the laidback look of the whole Connor family, and hey, obviously the ’90s are back in a big way. So in honor of Roseanne as the queen of snarky moms, and Mother’s Day in general, we’ve cobbled together this Style Stealer look. Check it out after the jump! Keep reading »

New James Bond Movie Squashes Product Placement Records

This weekend, I saw Morgan Spurlock’s new documentary, “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.” The concept is simple—fed up with all the advertising around him, Morgan decides to take a critical look at “brand integration” in our everyday lives by making a documentary that is fully-funded by product placement. He shows us every step involved in getting sponsors and one of the points he hits the hardest is that movies and brands have formed a symbiotic relationship—studios make money when sponsors buy into a movie, sponsors get a visibility boost from people seeing the flick, and in turn the sponsors promote said movies not only on their packaging but in their other advertising. It’s a pretty good racket in the end.

So I was pretty interested to see today that the new James Bond flick, “Bond 23,” will be financed by a whopping $45 million worth of product placement. Keep reading »
