Today’s Lady News: A Lawsuit Is Filed In Illinois Over Parental Notification Law For Abortions

  • A Chicago doctor and a women’s health clinic have filed a lawsuit in Illinois over a “parental notification law.” If the law goes into effect on Nov. 3, it would require a doctor to tell the parents before performing an abortion on girls under age 18. Girls can bypass notifying their parents by going before a judge, but the judge has 48 hours to rule. Parental notification also isn’t required in the case of a medical emergency or if the girl declares in writing that she is the victim of sexual abuse. [Chicago Tribune]
  • School officials in Huntington Beach, California read aloud the child rape scene in Maya Angelou‘s autobiography, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by way of encouraging the city council members to ban it. Book banning? In California? In 2009? Seriously? [Jezebel]

    Oink, Oink: A “Dancing With The Stars” Swine Flu Outbreak

    Swine flu is now officially the enemy of everything that is good. First it infected Rupert Grint and The Backstreet Boys. Now, there’s been an outbreak of H1N1 on the set of (gasp in horror) “Dancing with the Stars.” First, dancer Derek Hough got it. “I was sicker than a dog,” he said, divulging that his fever reached 105 degrees. “My whole bed was drenched because I sweated so much. I had to sleep in the bathtub. I’ve been sick a thousand times but something was different about this—I literally couldn’t walk or move.” Next, he passed it on to fellow dancer Mark Ballas, who wore a mask to keep from spreading his germs to partner Melissa Joan Hart. Others in the cast are trying their best not to pick it up. “I’m living off of Emergen-C right now,” said Lacey Schwimmer. Ditto for Aaron Carter. “I’m a hypochondriac—I hate, hate getting sick. I use hand sanitizer every five seconds,” he said. Please, swine flu, leave our dancing reality television alone and go pick on someone your own size. [CNN] Keep reading »

    Bronson Pinchot Shovels Some Serious Hollywood Dirt

    “Cousin Larry, let us do the dance of joy.” If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I don’t like you very much. Did you never see “Perfect Strangers,” the awesome ’80s sitcom starring hottie Bronson Pinchot as Balki, a sheepherder from the island of Mykos who comes to America to live with his cousin? Netflix now, people. Anyway, Bronson has largely disappeared from the pop culture scene, but the Onion’s A.V. Club chose to interview him. And his comments are amazing—he claims that Tom Cruise made constant gay jokes, that Denzel Washington is the meanest guy on the planet, and that it makes Mischa Barton cry when you talk about her butt.

    Think Twice Before Walking Around Naked In Your Own House


    If you thought all that Balloon Boy coverage was ridiculous, you might roll your eyes at this major story Fox News is covering. However, Virgina resident Eric Williamson actually needs the exposure (uh, heh) because here is a man who has clearly been wronged. Every day at 5:30 a.m., Mr. Williamson wakes up and makes his way downstairs to make a pot of coffee and he does so nude. Because even though it may sound out-of-this-world crazy to some people, many folks actually kind of enjoy the fact that they can walk around in their own houses minding their business and stuff while they’re naked. So anyway … Keep reading »
