Missouri lawmaker pushes for law requiring consent of the “father” to get an abortion

Missouri state representative Rick Brattin is pushing for a law that would require the consent of the “father” to get an abortion. The text of the bill, which is unlikely to pass and perhaps even less likely to stand as constitutional if it did, reads: “No abortion shall be performed or induced unless and until the father of the unborn child provides written, notarized consent to the abortion.”

Stop telling women to talk like men

Over at Slate, Marybeth Seitz-Brown has an important piece on uptalk, the rising intonation some women use at the end of their declarative sentences. That speech pattern, and the women who employ it, are frequently belittled or outright dismissed, while the men who use it — and many do — escape the same censure.

Exploitation of Mexican indigenous people puts food on US tables

In the US, it has become more and more common to be selective when it comes to where we purchase our food. Many consumers who can afford to are opting for food that is organic, or even locally grown. But we have yet to develop a national trend around purchasing food that is humanely cultivated.

It’s no secret that some anti-choice extremists believe, counter to the scientific facts, that some forms of birth control actually cause abortion. But traditionally mainstream anti-choice groups have tended to stay away from such claims.
