This post was originally published on the Community site.

Show Me Your Riffs: A love letter to Sleater-Kinney and reproductive rights

Ed. note: This post was originally published on the Community site.

In high school, my friend Jess made me a mix tape with Sleater-Kinney’s “Dig Me Out” on it, alongside some Tori Amos and some Smoking Popes. We played that thing into the ground, listening to it in my 1988 Saab as we zipped around back country roads during long, hot summer nights.

Tennessee County gives family planning grant to religious group that opposes family planning

After weeks of deliberation, the Shelby County Commission in Tennessee has voted 9-4 to strip the local Planned Parenthood of funding and give the county’s family planning grant to Christ Community Health Services instead.

Christ Community Health Services supposedly outscored Planned Parenthood in the evaluation process. Which is odd considering the religious organization refuses to provide some pretty basic family planning services. Since they object to emergency contraception on religious grounds, they will refer such requests to a third-party. They will not refer patients to abortion providers at all. But since it’s a requirement of receiving Title X family planning funding, they will acknowledge that abortion is an option.

Of course, what they’ll actually say about abortion is anyone’s bet. ...

Good news in Kansas! Judge blocks defunding of Planned Parenthood

Kansas has been facing heavy attacks from anti-choicers this summer, but on Monday a federal judge stood up against one of them:

An incredulous federal judge on Monday rejected the state’s claim that a new Kansas statute that denied Planned Parenthood federal funding did not target the group, ruling that the law unconstitutionally intended to punish Planned Parenthood for advocating for abortion rights and would likely be overturned.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten granted the request from Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri for a temporary injunction blocking enforcement of the law, which would require the state to allocate federal family planning dollars first to public health departments and hospitals, and leave no money for Planned Parenthood or similar groups. ...
