UPDATE, 1:40p.m.: Mother Jones is reporting the clinic is “temporarily closed” and the FBI has joined an investigation into the bombing. [Mother Jones]

An explosive blew up at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute, Wisconsin last night at around 7:30 p.m. Police say a homemade bomb was placed on a windowsill outside the Appleton North Health Clinic. It started a fire that burned itself out but still caused damage to the building. No one was hurt.

Intimidation tactics like this are nothing short of domestic terrorism, intent on scaring the employees of abortion clinics from doing their jobs. Thank you to the women and men who work at these clinics and put themselves at risk for clinic violence every day.

Mitt Romney must think low-income women don’t really need breast exams. And those Pap smears that could detect cervical cancer? So frivolous! Surely that’s the only thing the GOP frontrunner could have meant when he told folks in Missouri he would “get rid of” Planned Parenthood, as well as a number of other programs, to reduce the debt. “The test is pretty simple. Is the program so critical, it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?” Romney said. “And on that basis of course you get rid of Obamacare, that’s the easy one. Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that. The subsidy for Amtrak, I’d eliminate that. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities.” Keep reading »

The best part about the Girl Scouts’ dramatic unmasking by a Republican lawmaker in Indiana as a “tactical arm of Planned Parenthood” is that the Scouts can now be honest about all their delicious cookie offerings.  [Team Coco]

Oh, my Girl Scout years. Swabbing each other’s cervixes. Examining each other’s breasts for strange lumps. Aborting each other’s unborn children. Those were the days!

Well, not anymore. Thanks, Rep. Bob Morris of Fort Wayne, Indiana, for blowing the lid off our cover: Girl Scout troops were once able to perform pelvic exams and prescribe herpes medication in peace, but now the groups have been outed as “a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood” by Rep. Morris. How did Rep. Morris learn all our secrets? From Googling, of course! (Or as he put it, “a small amount of web-based research.” Rather small, I should say.) As we all know everything you read on on the Internet is true, Rep. Morris was fully in the right to inform his fellow Republican colleagues in a letter on Sunday that he refused to support a resolution celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts because it encourages sex and promotes homosexuality.

Damn. And they were hiding it so well. [NY Daily News]

Today’s Lady News: Komen For The Cure Insider Tells All About Planned Parenthood Tomfoolery

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s VP Karen Handel, a former politician who ran on an anti-abortion platform and was endorsed by Sarah Palin, allegedly drove Komen’s decision last week to halt grants to Planned Parenthood, which were used to pay for breast exams for low-income women. An inside source at Komen has told the Huffington Post that Karen Handel herself came up with the plan of how to stop the funding: blame it on an “investigation” by an anti-abortion politician into whether Planned Parenthood uses public money to pay for abortions, which is illegal. Susan G. Komen for the Cure was swiftly rebuked last week for halting the grants and announced two days later the current grants would continue. [Huffington Post]
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is launching a Women In Public Service Project (WPSP) at five women’s colleges — Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Wellesley — to get more women working in public service and create a 50/50 parity by 2050. [Women’s Media Center] Keep reading »
