News from the Front

For those of you who still believe that so-called "pro-life" types hold the high moral ground, let's check out this handy chart from Alas (a blog) via Broadsheet:

(Sorry, I can't get it any bigger. Click on the Alas link to see it in its native habitat.)

And, some awesome news from the Mount Rushmore State. Cecilia Fire Thunder, the first female president of the Oglala Sioux tribe of South Dakota has made the following vow: "I will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic on my own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine Ridge Reservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely no jurisdiction."

Fuck yeah!

And when you're finished with your appointment, you can hit the nickel slots.

Hey, a gal needs a little cheering up in these dangerous times.
