A pregnancy resulting from rape or incest is evidence and having an abortion is “tampering with evidence,” according to a new bill introduced yesterday in New Mexico which would legally require a rape victim to carry a fetus to term.

Presumably Rep. Cathrynn Brown, a Republican, will also criminalize tampering with evidence by taking a shower after a rape, too? Keep reading »

Could the Republicans go three whole days without saying something terrible about rape and abortion, please? It’s like they can’t help themselves! A scant week after Indiana Republican nominee Richard Mourdock said that pregnancy from rape was “something that God intended to happen,” Washington State Republican representative John Koster added his incredibly stupid commentary into the mix.

Speaking to a fundraising group this past weekend, Koster said that he strongly opposed abortion in all cases, including rape. He went on to explain that abortion was actually worse than rape, an analogy he no doubt came to because both things occur to the murky ladyparts area on a woman’s body.

To whit: “But on the rape thing, it’s like, how does putting more violence onto a woman’s body and taking the life of an innocent child that’s a consequence of this crime, how does that make it better?” Koster said. Oh, but that’s not all. Koster then went on to say that he might make an exception in the case of the life of the mother. Keep reading »

"One Billion Rising" Short Film

“The Vagina Monologues” playwright and global anti-sexual violence activist Eve Ensler debuted a new campaign today called One Billion Rising. This short film — powerfully done, but with some NSFW violent imagery — shows just some of the acts of violence that women worldwide endure on a daily basis. On February 14,  activists worldwide will hold events for One Billion Rising  and remember the one in three women worldwide who will be subject to rape or abuse in her lifetime. Ensler, who is also behind the V-Day celebration every Feb. 14th, where “Monologues” is staged around the country to raise money for anti-sexual violence resources, is embarking on a worldwide trip. She’ll hit up Peru, Mexico, India, China, Philippines, Britain, France, and the Democratic Republic of Congo before coming to New York City for V-Day.  You can learn more about the campaign  and find events in your country here. Rise up! [One Billion Rising]

Sit down if you’re not already and I’ll hold your virtual hand as I walk you through this one. Sixty-year-old Ohio woman Valerie Spruill made a horrifying discovery after her husband Percy passed away: that he was actually her father. HOLYSHITOMG, I know.

You’re probably wondering, as am I, how this is possible. Here’s how it went down: Valerie was raised by her grandparents from the age of three months on. Her mother Christine, who was a “night lady” and put away for sex charges in 1980, got together with her father Percy when she was only 15. The pair had seven children together, including Valerie, and Valerie suspects she has more siblings out there. Keep reading »
