Don’t Take it Back

February 1st, 2012 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

Healthcare Reform has meant a lot to people who need access to health care and as the law is fully implemented, it will mean even more.  Over the last year, we’ve watched as some leaders have tried to take it back.  Check out this ad by Family Planning Health Services to find out how health care reform helps people and what we stand to lose.

Why isn’t birth control as cool as an iPhone?

August 8th, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

99% of all American women use birth control at some point in their lives.  Recently, Kirsten Moore from the Reproductive Health Technologies Project got an iPhone and it caused her to wonder why there’s more innovation for the iPhone than their is for birth control.  Here are her thoughts on it.

More on the HHS regulation requiring insurance coverage of birth control

August 8th, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

Lately, there’s been a lot of chat about how it’s “unfair” for people who oppose birth control to be required to pay for said coverage with their premiums.  Well, Amy Johnson from the Federal Way Mirror, wrote a great opinion piece about why that opposition shouldn’t matter to the government.  You can find it here, and I hope you enjoy it, too!

This Looks Promising…

August 2nd, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

Recently a judge placed an injunction on the Kansas law that prevents the state from including Planned Parenthood in their Medicaid provider network.  So at least women won’t lose their health care while the courts review the case.  More information is available here from CNN.

What happens when birth control is free? These folks are finding out!

July 29th, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

In light of the Institute of Medicine’s recommendation that birth control be covered as a preventive health services (not subject to deductibles or co-pays), there’s been a LOT of talk about what that will mean.  Unfortunately, many responses have not been evidence based.  In part that’s because there haven’t been many studies about what happens when birth control is free.  Well, according to the St. Louis Beacon, that’s about to change.  Check out this article about a research team that’s answering the question, “what happens when birth control is free.”

More Billboards from The Radiance Foundation

June 21st, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

I’m not really surprised that The Radiance Foundation has a new set of billboards to coincide with Juneteenth.  While I’m not surprised, I am continually saddened by the messages displayed on the billboards.  Growing up in a small, rural Midwestern town, I learned early on that liberty and independence were to be treasured and protected beyond almost all else – values that epitomize Juneteenth.  As I see and learn more about these billboards, the more I realize that the value underpinning both liberty and independence is trust.  This trust is commonly extended to allow everyone to exercise liberty and independence.

These billboards continually sadden me because it is an example of a group that refuses to extend the common trust while demanding it from everyone else.  Without fact or understanding, The Radiance Foundation undermines the independence and liberty of all women who decide to have an abortion, minority women especially, for their decision.  Furthermore, instead of investing in options and programs that could ease the burden of those who would prefer to carry a pregnancy to term, they invest in condemnation.  The Radiance Foundation’s campaign is meant to imply or reinforce the notion that these women are abusing the liberty and independence of others.  This is done to justify the persecution of women who chose abortion, when in fact these women are having their liberty and independence abused.

A Little Logic from Tenessee

June 10th, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

In this editorial, the folks at the Memphis Commercial Appeal lay out the flaw in attempts to limit funding to family planning providers like Planned Parenthood.  I think it’s concluding words, demonstrate quite a bit of wisdom: “Taking on the feds in order to pursue the anti-abortion agenda is poor public policy when cancer diagnoses, birth control and the battle against the spread of STDs among poor people are at stake.”

What the New Republican Majority Means for Women’s Health and Rights

February 3rd, 2011 • Contributed by Frances Irwin

From our friends at CHANGE:

As of last month, a Republican majority controls the House of Representatives, and it has already launched significant attacks on women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights at home and abroad. We wanted to share with you CHANGE’s thoughts on what’s happening and what’s to come, both the challenges and the opportunities.

What Does a Republican Majority in House of Representatives Mean for Women’s Health?

  • Republicans now set the agenda, make the rules, and lead the committees. In addition, the majority of representatives in the current House, both Democrat and Republican, oppose international family planning and reproductive health funding and services. This means the Republican majority is now poised to set an anti-women’s health agenda that could muster enough votes to pass in the House and move on to the Senate. They have already started—Rep. Chris Smith (R-New Jersey) recently introduced a bill that significantly limits access to safe abortion in the United States (take action here). CHANGE expects this trend to continue during the tenure of the Republican leadership.

Thank You Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company!

The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company
Attn: Eliot Butler
123 E. Doty St.
Madison, WI 53703

Dear Mr. Butler:

Recently it came to my attention that The Great Dane provided a charitable donation seen as inappropriate by some in our community.  The donation was to NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin.  This came to my attention on Facebook, from friends who posted this link: http://blog.prolifewisconsin.org/2011/02/02/the-great-danes-defense-of-supporting-naral/ from Pro-Life Wisconsin’s blog, which included your letter.

All I can say is thank you.
