Secret Service Sex Scandal: Should Prostitution Even Be Legal?

I woke up to my TV blaring a news report recounting the details of the Secret Service scandal with Colombian prostitutes, detailing how some were fired, others were allowed to resign, and eight remain under investigation. After pounding my fist into the pillow a few times, I ran to turn it off. My TV is programmed to turn on automatically at 7:30 a.m., and sometimes I think it shouldn't be.

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?

Guess What? There's A Pro-Birth Control Passage In The Bible

In the middle of this heated debate over birth control and religion, it's easy to get the impression that Christians are anti-birth control, and so is God for that matter. Yet, as a mom, a person of faith, a married lady and a birth control lover, I don't see it as so simple.

After researching both sides of the Sandra Fluke saga, I find it hard not to side with the courageous third-year law student, who testified on Capitol Hill on Feb. 23, advocating for birth control to be covered by insurance — and was subsequently inexplicably shamed by conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh for being a "prostitute" and "slut."
