5 Things To Know About Christine O’Donnell

When did conservative female political candidates who make bombastic statements become so chic? First there was Sarah Palin, then Michele Bachmann, and now Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell is the toast of Delaware’s Senate race. For the love of vaginas, Victoria Woodhull, Shirley Chisholm and Geraldine Ferraro did not smash through the glass ceiling so that their successors could clog up the 24/7 news cycle with their anti-sex, anti-woman views.

Frankly, Christine O’Donnell’s declaration on the MTV series “Sex In the ’90s” that masturbation is a sin is all the crazy I need to know to make my assessment about her. But in case you and your lustful heart want to give O’Donnell a chance, here are five things to know about her. And you know you want to know how Mel Gibson is involved. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The Girl Scouts Are A Haven For Lesbians & Pro-Abortion Training Ground

  • The Girl Scouts are a haven for lesbians and a pro-abortion training corps! A Republican candidate for Washington’s House of Representatives, Hans Zeiger, has allegedly been removing his writings from the internet, but the opposition has still been able to find cached pages on Google. Boy, are they interesting! “One might wonder why the Girl Scouts have been spared the painful attacks that have been launched upon the Boy Scouts by the Left in recent years,” he wrote in one gem. “The reasons are simple: the Girl Scouts allow homosexuals and atheists to join their ranks, and they have become a pro-abortion, feminist training corps. If the Girl Scouts of America can’t get back to teaching real character, perhaps it will be time to look for our cookies elsewhere.” Yes, this is the Girl Scouts he’s talking about.

Abortion Clinic Documentary “12th & Delaware” Debuts Tonight On HBO

A few weeks ago, I was privileged to attend a screening of “12th & Delaware,” a new documentary that screened to critical acclaim at Sundance and debuts tonight on HBO at 9 p.m. (EST). The film examines the fight over reproductive rights in the United States though the lens of an abortion clinic and a so-called “crisis pregnancy center,” which are located across the street from one another in Fort Pierce, Florida. The abortion clinic, which is constantly picketed by protesters, operates under high security and the doctor is driven to and from work every day with a blanket over his head. Meanwhile, the Pregnancy Care Center is run by anti-choicers who purposefully named their business to sound like an abortion clinic and purposefully opened up shop near an abortion clinic to confuse women seeking to end a pregnancy.

Dear Wendy: “My Booty Call Got Me Pregnant”

I have been (VERY) casually dating this guy since March. I met him at a bar and started to hang out every week or so — nothing too serious. I work all the damn time and I really don’t want a relationship, so this has been fun, plus the sex is really amazing. Anyway, I felt something was up with my body and I missed my period two weeks ago, so I decided to take a pregnancy test. I took two and both turned out positive. He’s the only person who could have gotten me pregnant. I’m going to get an abortion, no doubt. I know I’m going to call him and ask him to come over and tell him, but what if he freaks out? Or what if he’s against abortion? This talk is truly terrifying in my eyes. How do I approach him without scaring him? — Pregnant and Terrified
