Study: Being Denied Abortions Tethers Women to Abusive Men

There are countless reasons why limiting women's access to safe and legal abortions is anything but "pro-life."

Marvel Cancels Artist's Upcoming Covers After Spider-Woman Butt Fiasco

The comic book industry is not particularly well-known for portraying women in a non- insanely-sexualized manner (you can't fight crime without a boob window, as we have all observed over the years). Even given that, a recent Spider-Woman cover somehow managed to slink under the world's already-low expectations with… » 9/23/14 5:45pm 9/23/14 5:45pm

Fraternities Announce Plan to Train Members to Help Stop Assault

Rick Perry Uses Joan Rivers' Death to Justify Awful Texas Abortion Law

In a recent speech, America's least likable Reptoid Rick Perry drew an idiotic and completely specious parallel between the harsh and medically unnecessary abortion restrictions in his state and Joan Rivers' recent tragic death.
