Only One Remaining Doctor In The U.S. Can Do Third Trimester Abortions

No reporter happened to be standing at abortion provider George Tiller‘s side on the Sunday morning in May when he was murdered at gunpoint, allegedly by an anti-choice extremist. But, like the famous newspaper article by journalist Jimmy Breslin that covered JFK’s assassination from the point of view of his grave digger, sometimes a reporter discovers the best way to tell a story lies someplace other than the obvious.

In “The Last Abortion Doctor, Esquire focuses on the Boulder Abortion Clinic in Colorado and Dr. Warren Hern, the last physician in the United States who can perform late-term abortions. Keep reading »

Bar Refaeli Gets Naked And Inked For Esquire Cover

Spring must have sprung. Everybody’s getting naked! Especially when it comes to the covers of magazines. Yesterday, it was Miranda Kerr stripping down and chaining herself to a tree to save the koalas on the cover of Rolling Stone. Today, it’s Bar Refaeli taking it all off for the July issue of Esquire, her body painted with the contents of the magazine. The 23-year-old Israeli model is the girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio and the host of MTV’s most recent reincarnation of “House of Style.” I think the cover’s pretty awesome; it reminds me of “The Pillow Book,” in which bodies get turned into books. But what about you: Have you ever posed naked? [HuffPo] Keep reading »

Love Is Just A Combination Of Chemicals In Our Brains

Love seems elusive. Sure, we’ve loved and been in love, but we’ve never known exactly why or how it happens, or if we love one person differently than another. But that could soon change. Writer A.J.

Quote Of The Day: Halle Berry Has Good Orgasms

“You know that stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That’s all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days. Much better orgasms than when I was twenty-two. And I wouldn’t let a man control that. Not anymore. Now I’d invite him to participate. I’ll tell you this: I’ve learned my tricks. I know what I like. I do not wait around. I initiate. And I’m not all about frequency. I favor intensity. … There have been some men in my life who have been wickedly sexy and have taught me much about sexual pleasure. There are a few men I should thank, and others I need to forget. But I don’t regret. To hell with regret. I like what I am now. I like being a mother. I like my body better since I became a mother. I feel sexier as a result of becoming a mother.” — Halle Berry in Esquire Keep reading »
