Rand Paul says first female president is no biggie because women are “kicking butt”

I’d say a good strategy for the Dems at this stage in the 2016 presidential race would be to just keep asking Rand Paul to talk about women. Here he is attempting to brush off the significance of potentially electing a woman to the presidency for the first time in this nation’s history.

Majority of Americans agree on what the abortion experience should be like

Vox conducted an interesting new survey on the public’s opinions on abortion. The results, from a nationally representative sample of US adults, echo what’s been clear for awhile now: that the labels of “pro-choice” and “pro-life” don’t line up very well with people’s actual views.

Last month, former NFL player Darren Sharper accepted a plea deal admitting to “rape charges involving at least nine women in four states” between 2011 and 2014. His sentence is a ridiculously light 20 years, and he may be freed after just nine.

"The CPC told me that I would become infertile if I had an abortion."

CPCs: We’re protecting women as “an adult tells a child not to to touch a hot stove.”

Over the course of the three days of the conference, I chatted with a few dozen pregnancy center workers. Multiple women told me it was their job to protect women from abortion as “an adult tells a child not to touch a hot stove.”
