What We’ve Been Reading & Watching

February 17, 2012

Surely you’ve seen the panel of chaste men talking offering expert testimony on women’s sexual health:


The testimony that should be heard: Representative Issa refused to hear this testimony from Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke about the consequences of the Catholic Bishops’ refusal to cover contraception.

And here’s another perspective from workers at a religiously-affiliated social service organization, and their difficulties in getting contraceptive coverage in their insurance plan.

The truth is that this new benefit won’t increase premiums at all.

It’s all part of the larger assault on women’s health.  In Virginia, scary anti-choice bills advance, including one that could mandate an invasive transvaginal sonogram.

The case that could have been: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reflects on a case she worked on before Roe.
