An anti-choice Oklahoma law goes into effect on Nov. 1 requiring the data of every abortion performed in the state to be posted on a public web site.

Will Sonia Sotomayor Be Pro-Choice? Looks Like Maybe Not.

We think it's pretty dope that Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's pick for Supreme Court justice, is (a) a lady and (b) could the first person of Hispanic descent to don Supreme Court robes.

Celebrate The Inauguration With Free Abortion Donuts!

On Inauguration Day, Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts to celebrate "freedom of choice." Ruh-roh. CHOICE. Naturally, pro-life activists are flipping out over that choice of phrase and are calling the move an endorsement of abortion. Mmm, abortion donuts.

So, yesterday was a historic amazing day, with the first African-American winning the Presidency of the United States. It was also a bit of letdown, as it became clear that much of America still doesn't like the idea of gay people getting married. But there was more good news! Three anti-choice measures failed! Amendment 48…

DMC Pharmacy in Chantilly, Virginia, will sell everything from cold meds to contact solution when it opens this summer, but if you want condoms, birth control pills, or any other form of contraception, you'd better head in the other direction.

That’s “Mister Anti-Choice” To You!

Sigh. Sometimes you just can't make this junk up. Marvin Richardson, an aspiring Independent Senate candidate, has legally changed his name to "Pro-Life" because, well, he is. Previously, and I am not joking, his middle name was "Pro-Life" but when he ran for the Senate a few years ago, officials refused to put his full…
