    South Dakota Sustains Guilt-Tripping Abortion Law

    In a recent court decision, South Dakota will enforce a law that forces doctors into guilt-tripping their patients before performing an abortion. As if making the decision isn’t hard enough, now the government requires doctors to read an statement to women that says an abortion will “terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being” and may lead you to commit suicide. Um. Yeah. While the court claimed the “burden of proof” rested squarely on Planned Parenthood, perhaps there should be some actual proof to the ludicrous suicide link within the law. Although the safe sex organization argued that making doctors read the statement aloud to their patients was an infringement on the First Amendment, since the medical professionals don’t agree with the ideology, the court still wouldn’t budge. Now that’s scarier than unwanted children! [The International Herald Tribune] Keep reading »

    Planned Parenthood: Loaded And Growing

    Planned Parenthood had an annual revenue of more than $1 billion last year (note that this is revenue, not profit), raised various ways, including through payments by more affluent patients (PP charges on a sliding scale), private insurance, sales of candles, jewelry, and condoms, and federal funding. The organization is expanding, and moving into more upscale suburban areas, rather than staying in low-income areas. Last year, Planned Parenthood received more than $335 million from the government, but the money is spent on family planning and reproductive care for low-income women, not abortions. Conservative activists and politicians such as Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana believe the non-profit can do without the tax dollars since it’s so good at raising money on its own. Thoughts?

    Hoo-Ha, That Was Funny!

    Sex and sketch comedy go together like penis and vagina. And the good people at Planned Parenthood of Portland, Oregon get both apparently. While the health videos we watched in high school were dull, outdated, and often gross, their take on taking care of down there features cool hotties and is laugh out loud awesome. Especially the silly “Down There Song”, which has made us want to rename the vag and dub it the “hot pocket.” So check out the site and use a condom!

    The Daily Squeeze: Stealing Bras, Stylish Condoms, and Everyday Corsets

  • There’s a new condom with a cutesy name in town. Proper Attire condoms, which are “Required for Entry” were inspired by the world of fashion—from the name and female-focused packaging to the fig-leaf logo (“clothing in its most primitive form,” according to the brand manager). The condoms will soon be available in boutiques, chic hotels, and Planned Parenthood health centers and online, with the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. [PR Newswire]
  • If you’re a lingerie thief, the best time to strike is during the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day when stores stock up on all things lacy. One California crook hit the same store twice in eight days, stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. But the first theft was just two items: a camisole and a two-piece bathing suit taken right off the store’s mannequins. The store’s owner said the thief is in his mid- to late-20s, slightly stocky, and blond. Could it be Spencer? [ABC News]
