5 things that are people according to the impeccable logic of Senator Lindsey Graham

Lindsey Graham, US Senator from South Carolina and Expert on Pregnancy, defended the 20-week abortion ban he’s introduced in Congress by noting that parents sometimes sing to their fetuses. Ergo: fetuses are people.

Do the Taco or Beer Challenge

The challenge is simple:

“You find yourself a fucking taco, or a fucking beer, or a fucking taco and a beer, then you eat the fucking taco or drink the fucking beer or eat and drink both the fucking taco and the beer, and then you donate some money to an abortion fund. You fucking film yourself doing this shit and then you send us the fucking video and we put it on the fucking internet.”

Andrea Grimes started the challenge as a bit of a joke, after seeing the “ice bucket challenge” take off. Tacos and beers have about as much to do with abortion as ice buckets have to do with ALS — ...

Ireland denies suicidal rape survivor an abortion and forces her to undergo a C-section

Ireland’s abortion law drew international outrage after the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar a couple years ago. The attention, combined with the long-term advocacy of local and international human rights organizations, spurred the government to ever-so-slightly loosen its restrictions to allow abortion “when there is a real and substantial risk to the life of the mother, including the threat of suicide over a pregnancy.” But the new law didn’t help this teenager:

The unnamed woman, now 18, was reportedly raped as a minor and sought an abortion just eight weeks into her pregnancy. Even after experts found her to be suicidal – a prerequisite for abortion under a new Irish law – she ...

“It’s hard for them to accept that I do abortions because I’m a Christian.”

Esquire has a wonderful profile of Dr. Willie Parker, one of the two doctors who flies in from out-of-state to work at Mississippi’s sole embattled abortion clinic. Parker, whose decision to become an abortion provider is deeply rooted in his Christian faith, quit his obstetrics practice to do the procedures full-time after Dr. Tiller was assassinated five years ago. These days, he travels around the country providing abortion care in areas where access is most limited and is an eloquent advocate for reproductive justice

The Satantic Temple uses Hobby Lobby ruling to claim religious exemption from anti-choice biased counseling laws

Citing the Hobby Lobby ruling, the Satanic Temple is claiming a religious exemption from the anti-choice “informed consent” laws that require abortion providers in 35 states to give out biased, sometimes false, information about the procedure.

Given that “the Supreme Court has decided that religious beliefs are so sacrosanct that they can even trump scientific fact,” the Temple says it expects its “deeply held belief” will be respected. After all, unlike Hobby Lobby’s, their belief is even based on actually accurate information.

New Favorite Tumblr: Counter-protesting anti-choice protestors

Saturday Chores chronicles the adventures of “a pro-choice husband/wife team from Raleigh, N.C.” as they spend Saturday mornings counter-protesting anti-choice clinic protestors–oh, sorry, I mean, “sidewalk counselors“–by holding up funny signs. Like so:

Somehow there’s nothing like a sign about turtles to deflate all that self-righteous anti-abortion doom-and-gloom.

Check out more of my favorite signs after the jump.
