Holy thought police, bat girl! Police in Iowa arrested a pregnant woman in her second trimester last month for telling a nurse she’d been thinking about having an abortion. While in the hospital after falling down a flight of stairs, Christine Taylor, 22, told a nurse about her employment and marital woes; Christine also said she’d considered both abortion and adoption before deciding to carry her pregnancy to full-term. The nurse then got suspicious that Christine had been trying to self-abort by throwing herself down the stairs — Christine was arrested under Iowa’s feticide laws, and the poor woman spent two days in jail.

Back in January, Bristol Palin revealed that she had a new boyfriend. “He’s awesome with Tripp and we’ve been really good friends for a long time, and he’s just a really good guy,” she said. “He’s a family guy. He’s a Christian. We have all the same religious beliefs and our families both come first in our lives, and we just have a lot in common… He loves Tripp and he’s just awesome to be around.”
Now finally, we get her new dude’s name so we can compare him to Levi Johnston see if he’s good enough for our Bristol. But so far, we’re not sold. Keep reading »
Texas, you are rivaling South Dakota in anti-abortion suckitude: the state’s House of Representatives approved anti-abortion legislation that many would call downright cruel. A woman who is a victim of rape or incest, or one whose much-desired fetus has dangerous fetal abnormalities, would be required to get an ultrasound and listen to a description of the fetus and then wait 24 hours before an abortion. But don’t worry, ladies. These kind politicians agreed that you can look away or put on headphones during this rigamarole so you don’t have to hear a fetal heartbeat. A doctor who doesn’t perform a sonogram before giving a woman an abortion could lose his or her license.
Disgusting. Keep reading »
Okay, so I’m confused. “30 Rock” is about to film its 100th episode, and to mark the occasion Tina Fey extended an invitation to Bill Clinton to be a guest star on the show. Why? Most people seem to think that she wanted him to match wits with Alec Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, who is super conservative. The whole thing could have been awesome and totally hilarious. Bill could even have played a few bars on the saxophone for good measure! But, his staff turned down the offer. “The request was made and immediately denied without asking him,” a Clinton rep said.
