NARAL Pro-Choice America -- an extreme abortion advocacy organization that re-branded in 2003 by scrubbing 'abortion' from its official name -- blasted out a nationwide fundraising email to supporters over the weekend, entitled, "insulting even for Fox News."

PBS recently aired "After Tiller," a documentary that lauds doctors in the United States who openly perform late-term abortions. The film leaves out essential facts, falsely stereotypes the pro-life movement, and disingenuously sanitizes the practice of partial birth abortion.
From aid for Israel to abortion to Medicare, Sen. Rand Paul has been shading, changing or dropping some of the positions he espoused as a tea-party-backed candidate and as a new senator. Sen. Rand Paul wanted to eliminate aid to Israel.
Welcome to Ovaries Week - the Cut's exploration of the female reproductive system, in its many confusing, intense, sometimes challenging, sometimes funny, often surprising facets. My first patient ever stares at me blankly when I say the doctor will see her soon.

One bill on a hot social issue in politics today, handled quite differently by Gov. Rick Scott and predecessor-turned-challenger Charlie Crist, has surged to the forefront in their intense campaign for governor. Crist, a Democrat, launched a new television ad last week featuring a bill Scott signed into law in 2011, one requiring doctors to show women an ultrasound or have it described to them before they can undergo an abortion unless they sign a form declining to see it.
Far-left Amanda Marcotte launched her own war on women in a Thursday article for the Alternet website. Specifically, she targeted nine conservative women who, in her view, " have made a career out of opposing women's struggle for social, political and economic equality ."
I wrote last week about how senatorial candidate Cory Gardner's support for Colorado's personhood abortion ban was part of his formula for winning the 2010 Republican caucus process, which was a big step to his being elected to Congress.
