WTF Chart: Men Overwhelmingly Quoted In Media About Women’s Rights, Abortion & Birth Control

This is a chart made by the media watchdog group 4thEstate.net about the numbers of women and men quoted in the media in print and on TV on women’s issues. As you can read about in more detail on 4th Estate’s site, regardless of the publication or show, men’s voices still over-represent even when the issue being discussed is women’s rights, abortion, birth control or attacks on Planned Parenthood.

The chart itself requires little explanation. The questions it arises? Those are endless. [4thEstate.net]

Congress Rejects Sex-Selection Abortion Ban

Today's Lady News photo
  • Some good news for once: the House of Representatives rejected the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), a ban on abortions based on the gender of the fetus. The bill would have imposed jail time on medical professionals who terminated pregnancies if they had “knowledge” that the woman sought the abortion because of the gender of the fetus.  While sex-selective abortions do occur in some countries — in particular China, which favors boys — it has not been deemed a considerable problem in the U.S. Instead, abortion rights groups said this bill’s only purpose was to restrict reproductive rights. Additionally, Asian-Americans activists worried the bill would contribute to racial profiling of women seeking abortions. [AP]
  • Only two percent of registered female voters say “women’s issues” are a top priority for them in this year’s election, according to a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Instead, 60 percent of registered female voters say the economy is the top issue, followed by health care. [Los Angles Times] Keep reading »

Brad Fischetti From LFO Spends All His Free Time At Abortion Clinics

You guys. This is crazy. You remember LFO, right? Of course you do. They’re the ones who like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch, remember? Yeah, those guys. Well, ever since their star began to fade in 2001, it doesn’t look like they’ve been up to too much. Rich Cronin, the cute blonde one on the far left, sadly passed away in 2010. Devin, the guy who Jennifer Love Hewitt is pressing up against, is a barber now, I believe. So where does that leave Brad, the striking young man in the middle?

Oh, you know, he just hangs out at an abortion clinic, trying to convince women who go in to “choose life.” Then he talks about it on Twitter. Read more…

If you were to ask most people if an 13-year-old girl should be forced to give birth to a baby after being impregnated by her own father, I think they would say no.

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 »
