Montana Abortion Clinic That Survived A Firebombing Attack Was Broken Into & Vandalized

burglary

All Families Healthcare, the only clinic in Flathead Valley, Montana, which provides abortions as well as numerous other reproductive health surfaces to women, suffered a break-in and extensive vandalism on March 3rd.

All Families Healthcare experienced damage to its furniture, medical instruments and supplies, file cabinets, sewer line, furnace and water heater. A yellow powder also covered almost everything inside the clinic, The Missoulian newspaper reported. The clinic is run by Susan Cahill, a physician’s assistant in MT since the 1970s. In 1994, her clinic was firebombed by an anti-abortion extremist as part of a string of attacks against eight clinics that terminate pregnancies. At that time, Cahill’s clinic had to be closed for five months for repairs. Activists mobilized quickly after the most recent attack on the clinic and as of of today, an IndieGogo campaign has raised $41,000 and counting to repair the damage — and there are still 27 days left for the online fundraiser.

An Annapolis woman was robbed while in labor — how’s that for a baby story? According to the AP the woman and her boyfriend were making her way to the hospital when they got held up by three men. Get this — the woman’s boyfriend fled. She is in labor, they’re getting robbed and  he runs away. Let that sink in for a minute.

The robbers tried to make her let him into the apartment, but she didn’t have a key. Instead, they stole her car. Thankfully, police busted them shortly thereafter. (Had they instead noticed she was in labor and taken her in a car to the hospital, we would have the plot of a rom-com on our hands.) No word on how this poor woman is doing, but she deserves all the gold stars. And all the epidurals. It turns out that giving birth on the New York City sidewalk and a nearby local news crew catching it on tape is not the #1 Crap Terrible Horrible Way To Give Birth. [AP] [Image of pregnant belly via Shutterstock]

Why Didn’t Mizzou Report Sasha Menu Courey’s Sexual Assault?

Sasha Menu Courey

When Sasha Menu Courey woke up one morning in February 2010, she had no idea that her life was about to change radically in a few short hours. Courey, a swimmer and straight-A student at the University of Missouri on a near-full scholarship, was sexually assaulted by a football player that night. According to CNN, she had gone home with a football player off-campus and had consensual sex. But after her consensual partner left, another football player “entered the room, locked the door and raped her.”

In the aftermath, her life began to fall apart in front of her eyes. Sixteen months later, she committed suicide. ESPN’s investigative series “Outside The Lines” searched for answers and shared a detailed report this week of how Sasha’s pleas for help managed to slip through the cracks. Keep reading »

President Obama Announces Initiative Against Sexual Assault On College Campuses

barack obama 012214

This morning, the White House released a report on sexual assault in college as the president announced a new initiative to improve the criminal justice response to rape on college campuses.

The report, “Rape And Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call To Action,” prepared by the White House Council On Women And Girls, notes that one in five women will be sexually assaulted during college and most are assaulted by someone that they know. Only 12 percent of these victims report the sexual violence. The report also notes that rapists tend to be repeat offenders, noting how one study had more than half of admitted rapists confessing to as many as six rapes each. Another huge problem is the often-dismissive response from local police and college administrations. Keep reading »
