Decent women don’t have “crisis pregnancies”

And if we haven’t had enough religious bullying today, here’s another batch. As ThinkProgress has reported, so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” that claim to help women in need are actually established by anti-abortion activists with the sole objective of shaming women out of having abortions. Despite receiving federal and state funding, they have a history of …

Holy misogyny

More festive jollity, this time in Jerusalem Israel. Residents of an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood in Beit Shemesh called Israel police officers “Nazis” on Sunday, after they removed a sign ordering the separation of men and women in a street in that neighborhood. In response to the removal of the sign by police officers and city inspectors from …

More weasels

I’m starting to think it’s a pattern. I’m starting to think it may be that only opponents (or at least non-fans) reported this particular bit of legislation honestly. Here’s the CNS version: The legislation would prohibit taxpayer funding for abortions and bar  women from using subsidies under the Obama health care law to buy  health …

Weasels

Interesting. The supporters of the “Protect Life Bill” aka the Let Women Die Bill are so ashamed of the let women die part that they conceal it in their press coverage; at least, the people at LifeSiteNews do. The measure would amend President Obama’s Affordable Care Act to reflect the Hyde amendment by prohibiting taxpayer …

Bishops run amok

Laura Bassett on the power of the bishops. Terry O’Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women  finds it troubling that a group of men that has historically denied women the opportunity to participate in leadership positions is exercising so much power over such a broad range of women’s reproductive health legislation.

Well, you see, it’s just women

Dahlia Lithwick on the Let Women Die bill. The other noteworthy element of the bill is a “conscience” provision that would allow hospitals to turn away women who need abortions, based on policy set by religious leadership. The provision ensures that the approximately 600 hospitals affiliated with the Catholic Church will now be legally protected …

The Church and her bishops have a heightened moral responsibility

The following post from last year. December 26, 2010 Mark Jones found the confirmation I was looking for, in the shape of the letter the bishop of Phoenix wrote to the president of Catholic Healthcare West. It is unbelievably disgusting. He’s pissed off that the president of CHW told him that this is a complex …

Episcopal evil

Reposted from last year. December 26, 2010 The ACLU letter to the administrators of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says something I hadn’t known, something quite staggering. The trouble is, I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else, so I can’t be sure it’s accurate. I would email the ACLU to ask, …

Sorry, hon, the nearest non-Catholic hospital is 500 miles away

More on the Let Women Die bill. An even more controversial aspect of the bill would allow hospitals that are morally opposed to abortion, such as Catholic institutions, to do nothing for a woman who requires an emergency abortion procedure to save her life. Current law requires that hospitals give patients in life-threatening situations whatever …

Oh yes, god hates women all right

Ohhhhhh shit, how did I miss this – the House passed a bill in October that “makes it legal for hospitals to deny abortions to pregnant women with life-threatening conditions.” Remember Thomas Olmsted, bishop of Phoenix? Who stripped St Joseph’s Hospital of its Catholic status because it aborted a fetus that was doomed in any case, …
