    Normally, when we get a press release from a local theater company about its latest work, the press release includes, you know, the name of the play. But Philly theater company Lightning Rod Special bucked that trend this week went they sent us a notice announcing its musical comedy about abortion, which debuts in August at the Painted Bride. “We were going with ‘Fetus Chorus,’” explains co-creator Alice Yorke, pictured below. “But there were a lot of mixed feelings about it. The best comment we got was, ‘I understand you want to provoke your audience, but do you want to...

    House Republicans voted today to approve a bill that would defund to Planned Parenthood abortion business. This was the second attempt to get enough votes on the reconciliation bill that would not only defund the nation’s biggest abortion corporation but also repeal major portions of Obamacare. The first attempt to pass the bill saw liberal Republicans oppose the repealing Obamacare portion and conservative Republicans not happy as well because it did not repeal Obamacare fully. Republican leaders reworked the legislation, called the American Health Care Act, and Republicans passed the measure today despite Democrat objections. The House voted 217-212 for...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill.— The Democratic-controlled Illinois House has approved public funding for all abortions. The House voted 62-55 Tuesday to allow state-employee health insurance or Medicaid to cover abortions. Medicaid currently covers abortions in limited cases. The vote capped a two-hour debate and coincided with the Illinois Women March on Springfield for a "progressive agenda."

    Ridhi Tariyal and Stephen Gire, an entrepreneur and a scientist, respectively, who met in an infectious disease lab at Harvard, were stunned by the vast number of women's health issues that go undetected. It seemed clear to them that there was a problem with the way that medical testing worked in women's health. The system is fundamentally reactive, waiting for an illness to be detected before it springs into action. But when a positive test result comes back after an annual check-up, it could be too late. "We had to come up with something that would allow women to find...

    (NBC) - Donald Trump says he regrets retweeting an unflattering photo of the wife of rival Ted Cruz, a rare move for the Republican front-runner more known for his boasts than backtracking. "Yeah, it was a mistake," Trump told New York Times. "If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have sent it." The retweet set off a war of words between the two candidates, and gave fresh fuel to Democratic candidates and other critics who marveled at a Republican presidential race that had descended into a fight over the candidates' wives. Trump retweeted the photo compilation showing an...

    On March 2, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in one of the most consequential abortion cases since Roe v Wade. Even Planned Parenthood Federation of America wrote to its supporters just days ago: "It's no exaggeration to say this is the most important abortion access case to reach the Supreme Court in over 20 years." And now, with the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia - one of the Supreme Court's most conservative and pro-life jurists - the stakes have become even greater. The case, Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, addresses two particular aspects of a Texas law, HB...

He said it happened the day he was with his wife, pregnant with their second child, during an early first term obstetric exam. He heard a heartbeat. His child’s heartbeat. And he had...

    "These Seven Senators Will Decide if the Senate Totally De-Funds Planned Parenthood" The Senate will vote early Monday evening on a new bill has been introduced that will totally de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The legislation follows four shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. Following pro-life Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s announcement of a working group, Senator Joni Ernst and Senators Rand Paul and James Lankford, along with 21 cosponsors, introduced legislation to protect women’s health and defund Planned Parenthood, S.1881.

Chris Christie eliminated five years ago for women's health services and led to the closure of six family planning centers, state Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg said.Christie said in 2010 he eliminated the funds as part of a wide array of cuts to close a budget gap. But in speeches to conservative groups in February and again last week, the Republican governor, who is mulling a bid for president, boasted he had "vetoed Planned Parenthood funding five times out of the New Jersey budget."Now that his true...

    Incomparable Liars: Abortion does not equal health by Daniel Clark Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D, Conn.) has introduced a bill called the Women’s Health Protection Act, although if you read any farther than the title, which he’d rather you didn’t, you’d find that it and practically everything that follows is a lie. The purpose of the bill is to nullify state laws that were passed in reaction to the crimes of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, which imposed previously nonexistent health and safety standards on abortion clinics. If you’re wondering how the repeal of those standards would serve to protect women’s health,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says women's health will be jeopardized by a Supreme Court's decision that allows corporations with religious objections to opt out of a requirement that they cover contraceptives. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that women should make personal health decisions for themselves.

    I hate to say I told you so. That’s usually an empty phrase. Let’s face it: most people love to say “I told you so.” But in this case, I really do hate it—because I successfully predicted that something pretty awful would happen. Back in February of 2012, the Susan G. Komen controversy was at its zenith. You’ll recall that Susan G. Komen announced that it would stop funding Planned Parenthood, which it had been doing to the tune of about $600,000 a year, and use that money for other projects instead. Planned Parenthood responded with an extensive media campaign...

    As many states look to curb abortion access and further regulate the practice, California's government has decided to take the opposite route. Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that dramatically expands abortion access in California, allowing for non-physicians such as nurses to perform the abortion procedure.

    When your grandmother gets some bad news, do you tell her: “Well, at least you have your abortion rights”? Why not? Maybe it’s because whatever you think of abortion, the right to have one is not synonymous with a woman’s health. But don’t tell that to the liberal group Think Progress. On Twitter, it recently teased some shocking news: “Why 2013 is shaping up to be the worst year for woman’s [sic] health in modern history.” When I followed to the linked story, there was nothing about a spike in cervical- or breast-cancer rates.

    Michelle Obama, in her speech to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last week, explained that her husband "believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care." If you're anything like me, you would like to believe the first lady on general principle. "Just say no to drugs"; "Read"; "Exercise": These are good messages that have come from first ladies, including this one. Life is more complicated than simple slogans, however, and in this particular narrative, she was putting a spin on the redefining of religious liberty that's occurred under...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Hide your children. This is what the progressive left's idea of women's empowerment looks like: For the past two weeks, radical feminists from the group Code Pink have paraded across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes. The goal is "respect" for women's bodies and women's abortion rights. It's part of the coordinated campaign to fight the right's purported "war on women." The Vagina Puppets' Democratic Party sympathizers, from professional birth control freeloader Sandra Fluke to first lady Michelle Obama, dog-whistled the same messages of "choice" and "freedom" from the convention stage.

    "For decades, Republicans have opposed abortion. This, we know, and so it comes as no surprise that Mitt Romney, the Party’s presidential candidate, has called “Roe vs. Wade“ one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history.” But what some call the “war against women” is escalating. This year, the Republican platform calls for a constitutional amendment that would make abortion illegal."

    Comedian Steve Martin once quipped, “I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” Sadly, combatants in the “war on women” seem to agree with Martin, except they want others to pay for their sex — at least the contraception. Last week, Georgetown law student and contraception activist Sandra Fluke led the battle cry at a presidential campaign rally in Denver. She argued that without the controversial government mandate requiring employers to provide free contraceptive services, women would lose control over their health care choices. In post-rally interviews videotaped by Caleb Bonham,...
