All abortions would be classified as feticides, a class A felony punishable by life imprisonment without chance for parole, under a new bill introduced on Wednesday by Iowa State Representative Kim Pearson, a Tea Party Republican. Pearson’s bill states:

Any person who intentionally terminates a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and consent of the pregnant person, where death of the fetus results, commits feticide. Feticide is a class A felony.

Under the bill, doctors who perform abortions could spend life in prison and doctors who attempt to perform an abortion (but don’t go through with it, for some unclear reason) would be charged with the class B felony of 25 years in prison.  Keep reading »

“I’ve been a Planned Parenthood supporter my whole life — since my mom took me to a rally when I was in sixth grade. It’s chilling to think of this resource being taken away. I have a five-year-old daughter, and I’m pregnant with my second child. I know when my children are older, I will be taking them to events like the one I went to with my mom. I hope we’ll be celebrating our freedoms and rights, not fighting for them once again as we are now.”
Maggie Gyllenhaal penned a piece for Glamour magazine about her support for reproductive rights. She says her mother taught her and her brother Jake to always fight for what they believe in and she believes “every woman has the right to decide what she can do with her body.” I’m impressed a big Hollywood celeb like Maggie is taking the time to support Planned Parenthood; PP is one of the main providers of women’s health treatments like cervical cancer screenings and breast exams for low-income women, who might otherwise go without. Between that and this, can we all just agree Maggie Gyllenhaal is the best?  [Glamour]

I don’t even know why we’re talking about Republican Ron Paul, because he is never going to be president. (Unless Kelly Clarkson gets her way.) But I do find it entertaining that his campaign ad called “Life,” about his opposition to abortion — despite otherwise being all “get the government out of people’s business!” — is now flying back in his face. In the “Life” ad, Ron Paul explains how he has delivered 4,000 babies as a doctor and believes that life is a precious thing. He also claims he allegedly saw an “aborted baby” in an operating room, crying and breathing, and saw it placed in a bucket in the corner of a room and people “pretended it wasn’t there.” Then he says he allegedly saw a baby the same size being delivered in that same hospital and it made him wonder “who are we” to let one baby die in “a bucket,” but let another one live.

A pro-choice organization boldly named The Abortion Gang began a personal pledge that has turned into a unique funding project — they’re urging fans of the Denver Broncos to make a donation to pro-choice groups every time star player Tim Tebow scores a touchdown. The reason behind the idea, coined “10 for Tebow,” is a little unconventional — Tim Tebow is notoriously pro-life. He’s even made a commercial with his mother in support of the organization Focus on the Family, a non-profit that is devoutly pro-life, anti-homosexual, anti-gay marriage, and against all sex education that goes beyond abstinence-only counseling.

Tim Tebow: Who Cares If He’s Majorly Pro-Life When He’s So Totally Hot!?

I realize I’m not the most reliable when it comes to dating guys who are totally on the up-and-up. But I draw the line at hardcore pro-lifers. I refuse to date a guy who doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose because I essentially view that as someone who believes women are too stupid to make decisions for themselves. So when Crushable’s very linkbait-y list of 25 crushworthy guys under 25 included Mr. Tim Tebow, I had to laugh. Sure, Mr. Tebow has a handsome enough mug, if you’re into broad shouldered football players. But Tebow has one major problem in my book: he’s openly and loudly very anti-choice, to the tune of taking out an ad during the Super Bowl in order to share his pro-life views with the world. Why, for the love of Ryan Gosling, would a major woman’s website feel the need to laud a man like that? I mean, after all, it’s not like a woman’s right to choose has been in any way compromised this year or anything. Luckily, their other 24 picks are decidedly less lame. [Crushable] Keep reading »

Is Tweeting About Abortion Effective?

There’s no denying that Twitter has become a monumental social networking tool — and of late, it’s become a part of the abortion debate. In recent days, Twitterers have taken to their accounts in support of a woman’s right to choose. The #ihadanabortion hash tag encourages women to openly discuss their abortion experiences, in an effort to demystify and de-stigmatize abortion. Keep reading »
