An abortion is like the biggest trick that Satan, through fear, has ever pulled on mankind. An abortion is a decision to terminate one of God’s greatest gifts.

Mother's Day for women who have had a voluntary pregnancy termination, or abortion, can be just as unhappy as Valentine's Day for people in bad relationships. On a day that motherhood is embraced and celebrated, many women experience sadness over their choice and are reminded of "what might have been."

Well, that's one more 2012 presidential debate said and done, and I'm sure the only thing people on both Democrats and Republicans will be able to agree upon tomorrow will be that both Michelle Obama and Ann Romney looked faaabulous in their Schiaparelli pink outfits. Yep, the wives sure made quite the impression! But not as much as Mitt's "Binders Full of Women!"
If only I could give Sandra Fluke a high-five right now! As a fellow American woman, I've been fuming over the incredibly disrespectful, ignorant, and downright detestable comments Rush Limbaugh made about the Georgetown Law University student since that oafish blowhard called her a "slut" on the air back in February (for daring to voice her opinion that universities should provide contraception coverage).
The real hero of the entire legitimate-rape debacle is not Missouri Rep. and Senate candidate Todd Akin, who, in a statement that he later apologized for and excused as an "off-the-cuff remark," seems to think that women's bodies magically block sperm from impregnating them during rape.

Listen, I'm the first girl to admit I think Mitt Romney is a looker. So I'll also be the first one to say he's a real [insert expletive] jerk. As the race to the White House gets more and more intense, Romney, who at one time supported Planned Parenthood, as did his wife, who donated a lovely sum to the organization, is now singing a different tune. What can you expect from a flip-flopper?
50 things women want in a man. When fake fights go bad. You disagree about kids, family, and marriage; now what? Looking at porn on a plane. Why some women like emotionally unavailable men. And, why abortion was the best decision one woman ever made.
