Planned Perversion

“Planned Parenthood’s Sex Ed Pushes BDSM, ‘Asphyxiation’ On Teens” is the headline at Breitbart.com, highlighting a new video from Live Action that demonstrates how America’s leading abortion provider is teaching kids about kinky sex. Planned Parenthood’s advocacy of perversion and promiscuity — under the aegis of “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” — isn’t really anything new. They’ve been […]

The #HobbyLobby Hysteria

Years ago, while reporting on federally funded research — the infamous “porn arousal” studies at Northwestern University — I developed what I like to think of as the Existential Theory of Liberalism: To a liberal, nothing exists unless it is mandated, subsidized and/or regulated by the federal government. If you think it is a waste […]

The #RapeCulture of Planned Parenthood

Enabling rapists because . . . choice! Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have come under fire countless times over the years for not reporting cases of statutory rape to authorities as required by state law. Now, in Arizona, officials says the abortion giant failed again to provide the proper report to authorities about a victim of […]

The @AmandaMarcotte Birth Control ObamaCare Fear-Mongering Crusade

Donald Douglas points out that everyone’s favorite baby-killing enthusiast has found a new focus for her feminist lunatic rage, namely a pending Supreme Court case about the ObamaCare mandate that insurers must provide free contraceptive coverage. Before addressing Amanda Marcotte’s irrational claims directly, let me ask: Does anyone else remember the Iraq War military draft […]

Death by ‘Choice': Contraceptive Risk Means ‘Safe Sex’ Can Be Deadly

Erika Langhart died after using ‘third generation’ birth control. It’s perfectly harmless — until it kills you: What friends of Durango [Colorado] native Erika Langhart seemed to love most about her was her humor. “She had great stories. Ridiculous things always seemed to happen to her,” said Jessica Knutzon, 24, a fellow American University alumni. […]

‘Fairness’ and Feminism

Just to refresh my memory, I’ve spent the past few days re-reading Susan Brownmiller’s feminist memoir In Our Time. You have to be a hard-boiled, strong-minded conservative not to be outraged by Brownmiller’s account of the extreme workplace inequality that once typified her own field, journalism. And the implicit assumption — this is one of […]

Planned Parenthood Video Promotes Bondage and Sadism for Teenagers

This is simply insane: Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) — which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012 — has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities. “People sometimes think that […]

Family Values as a Math Problem

While reading Professor William Jacobson’s take on the Utah polygamy decision, I noticed that in the comments, someone had linked a Census Bureau report that included this odd sentence: The proportion of one-person households increased by 10 percentage points between 1970 and 2012, from 17 percent to 27 percent. Uh, no: The proper way to […]
