What We’ve Been Reading

October 28, 2011

Just further proof that Representative Hayworth just doesn’t want to get it when it comes to her anti-choice voting record.  Too bad that she didn’t take a cue from her Republican colleague, Representative Hanna.

With the pool of Republican Candidates thus far, 2012 is shaping up to be an interesting year. Don’t miss the Washington Post’s Wonkblog, “How Abortion Became a Political Litmus Test”.

Earlier this week the UN released a report by its Special Rapporteur which calls for the removal of restrictions to abortion care, access to contraception, and accurate information on sexual and reproductive health. (Yay!) Feministing has a complete rundown.

Over on RH Reality Check Reverend Debra Hafner reflects on a recent trip to Kenya as the world population approaches 7 Billion, “World population growth stops being an abstract idea when confronted with individuals and whole communities suffering without enough food, shelter, sanitation, health care, and economic opportunities.”

Earlier this week we joined coalition partners from across Westchester County to stand up against victim blaming and domestic violence.

Deep breath and big sigh, “young feminist”. USA Today has another article about how young women aren’t feminists. At least Jos over at Feminsiting provides us with some comic relief. Also, can we move on already?

The New York Times took a good look at the dangerous implications of Initiative 26, the “personhood” amendment, currently on the ballot in Mississippi. Don’t miss the article or the editorial.
