The debate over minors' access to contraceptives is testing the loyalty of groups traditionally among the biggest supporters of President Obama, who said Thursday he is "comfortable" with his administration's efforts to find a middle ground on the issue.
The ongoing debate over minors' access to contraceptives is testing the loyalty of groups traditionally among the biggest supporters of President Obama, who said Thursday he is "comfortable" with his administration's efforts to find a middle ground on the issue.
A conservative feminist group is questioning President Obama's decision to nominate former New York U.S. attorney Mary Jo White to head the Securities and Exchange Commission, claiming somewhat tongue in cheek that it has compiled a "binder full of women" who are better suited for the job.
One look at the ever-growing chorus of radical groups clamoring for Senate filibuster reform should be enough for anyone to understand what's really motivating the efforts.
Uh-oh: Mothers are vexed with the Democratic Party for its plan to "credential" infants at the Democratic National Convention next month in Charlotte, N.C., not to mention the lack of child care at the event.
This is sure to confuse the National Organization for Women, not to mention Democratic strategists who want to tout President Obama's support for women's rights. What follows may not be part of the thinking, perhaps. GoTopless, a Las Vegas organization "dedicated to attaining women's rights to go bare-chested," is petitioning the Obama administration to recognize their "rights" as International GoTopless Day looms. It's Aug. 26, a date the group chose to coincide with Women's Equality Day, which commemorates the attainment of women's voting rights Aug. 26, 1920.
In the wake of the Supreme Court's stunning ruling on health care, activists on both sides of the abortion issue have pledged to bring the full weight of their movements into the November election battles.
In a May 8 press release, the National Organization For Women condemned the Republican version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which was passed by the House Judiciary Committee on a mostly party-line vote.
The National Organization for Women (NOW) predictably defended Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen's comments that insulted Ann Romney and myriad other stay-at-home moms, thus proving that to the group, conservative women, faith and family are the enemy ("Left just doesn't get what moms really want," Web, Sunday).
Moms, do you get the feeling the left hasn't a clue about the value of motherhood?
B doesn't just stand for broadcasting at ABC.
Now available: a new memorial T-shirt for conservative publisher and provocateur Andrew Breitbart, who died suddenly on Thursday. The "Breitbart is Here" T-shirt features his image and an additional wish: "Keep Andrew's spirit alive and help support his family."
When President Obama was elected in 2008 with a 100 percent approval rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America, he brought in supercharged hopes that he would make historic advances for abortion rights — especially with support from a Democrat-led Congress.
President Obama said Thursday he was not involved in his administration's decision to block over-the-counter sales of the Plan B morning-after pill to girls under age 17, but said he supports the action "as the father of two daughters."
The Nov. 8 defeat of the "personhood" amendment in Mississippi is galvanizing supporters to have a do-over in the state and also push measures in Colorado, Virginia and at least eight other states, say leaders of the anti-abortion movement.
