Sorry Gov. Kasich, No Cookies: Ohio’s 20-Week Abortion Ban Is Still Unconstitutional

Gov John. Kasich on Wednesday signed a bill into law that would ban abortions 20-weeks after conception: a reprehensible and clearly unconstitutional move designed to blatantly flout Supreme Court precedent.

Oklahoma Legislature Passes Bill Making Performing an Abortion a Felony Crime

While many other state legislatures do their best to make abortion technically legal but utterly inaccessible, dishonestly couching their anti-choice restrictions in the rhetoric of “protecting women’s health” and attempting to walk right up to the line of what’s unconstitutional, Oklahoma isn’t pretending anymore.

Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah: The Women of the Supreme Court

As you likely know, the Supreme Court heard opening arguments this week in the most important abortion case in decades. For a recap of the day’s proceedings, I recommend Dahlia Lithwick’s account of the three women justices — Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan — “pounding on Texas’ solicitor general for passing abortion regulations that have no plausible health purpose and also seem pretty stupid.”

The notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg on men’s rights, Hobby Lobby, and the ‘dream’ reproductive freedom case

Last night I made small talk with a friend as I sipped red wine and munched on a piece of raw radish plucked from an elaborate vegetable tray behind me. We were standing in a room full of mostly women, and we were waiting for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to arrive. It was the 30th anniversary celebration of the International Women’s Health Coalition, a great organization that promotes and protects the sexual and reproductive rights and health of women and young people — particularly adolescent girls — in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. (I would know — I used to work there.)

But the mood in the room was more anticipatory than celebratory. One woman looked over ...

Judge overturns Arkansas’s obviously unconstitutional 12-week abortion ban

Last year, Arkansas state legislators overrode a governor’s veto in order to secure the dishonor of having the most blatantly unconstitutional abortion ban in the country. Guess what prize comes with that title? Having the courts strike it down. Surprise!

Quote of the Day: “An abortion doesn’t un-rape a woman.”

*Trigger warning*

So last night I tuned into CrossFire on CNN to support my friend and new CNN contributor Sally Kohn.The debate about women’s reproductive rights on the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade was between anti-choice hoaxter Lila Rose and NARAL President Ilyse Hogue.

When I tuned in, I expected to hear Lila Rose spew the usual non-sense about babies being “ripped apart” during the abortion procedures that exist only in her vivid imagination.

What I didn’t expect to hear (because I’m clearly naive) is a woman say on national television, “An abortion doesn’t un-rape a woman.” That was Rose’s response to a question about abortion exceptions for rape and incest. Rose opposes ...
