Elvia Diaz to Planned Parenthood – Giving In To Anti-Choice Bullshit Is Not A Choice

RIGHT IS RIGHT: And rights are rights. This great piece by Elvia Diaz in AZCentral is a great reminder that Planned Parenthood should NEVER back away from defending abortion rights… or providing abortions as one of the many essential healthcare benefits they offer women. And we can NEVER allow abortion providers to be defunded OR to be demonized into backing away from their commitment to serving the needs of the community. Abortion is a right in a civilized society, and we don’t make compromises with people’s rights. NO APOLOGIES! NO SURRENDER!

There Will Be No DUCKING Abortion Restrictions in Oregon!

OREGON TRAILBLAZING: YES, OREGON! When states all over the country are going medieval on abortion rights, Oregon is STEPPING UP! Oregon lawmakers just passed a “bill” (GO DUCKS!) that requires insurance companies to cover reproductive services INCLUDING ABORTIONS at NO COST regardless of income, citizenship status, or gender identity! YAAASSS! And this bill also provides $500,000 for reproductive care for immigrants who don’t otherwise qualify. PLUS mandatory coverage for vasectomies, prenatal and postpartum care, counseling for victims of domestic abuse, and screening for cancer and STDs! This is GREAT NEWS. Oregon proves that the trail to the future will be trod by webbed feet.

Massachusetts Defundamentalist Jim Lyons is Truly Living Up to His Last Name

DON’T MESS WITH MASS! A Massachusetts lawmaker is trying to put an end to that state’s public funding of abortion. The courts ruled in 1981 that the state constitution requires that, since the state provides funds for live births, it must also fund abortion services. Fuck. Yes. But GOP Rep Jim Lyons is trying to undo that by putting a constitutional amendment on the ballot that would begin the process of stripping those rights away. Massachusetts has some of the sanest abortion rights laws policies in America—but there’s a turd in the chowder-bowl, and its name is Rep. Jim Lyons. Don’t let this chowder-head turn MASS into MISS.

Add Stella Creasy to the Long List of Heroes Putting Up With Anti-Choice Cruelty

SHEROE: If there’s one constant around the globe, it’s that so-called “pro-life” activists love to issue death threats. Stella Creasy, a London Member of Parliament, has been bombarded with death threats since she was instrumental in getting the government to fund abortions for women from Northern Ireland who were forced to travel to England to get them. And the threats mention Jo Cox, another MP who was murdered by a far-right extremist last year. As we’ve sadly learned in the US from the murder of Dr. George Tiller, these threats are very real. The people who are standing up for our rights are doing it at a considerable risk—they deserve all the love and support we can give them, anywhere around the world. THANK YOU, STELLA CREASY!

Google is Putting An End to Anti-Choice Monsters’ Web of Lies

The anti-abortion trolls at Operation Rescue are crying that the sparse number of hits on their lying propaganda pages are the result of some kind of conspiracy by “liberal tech companies that are relentlessly pro-abortion.” OR maybe people are searching the internet for INFORMATION and not THEOCRATIC BULLSHIT. They actually say there’s a plot to stifle their voices “and then supplant that information with radical pro-abortion information from the Center for Disease Control or Alan Guttmacher.” Damn those lib-tards at the CDC! Hey Dipshits, you’ve constructed your own reality. Why don’t you just build a search engine for it?

Between Clinics and Uteruses, It’s No Surprise that Anti-Choice Uter-oadies Show Up Where They Aren’t Invited

What do oil spills, and anti-abortion lies have in common? Their aftermath is toxic and they tend to SPREAD. Abortion clinic stalkers have started branching out from harassing patients and providers, to harassing patients who are forced to travel at airports, and even getting nice sit-down tables at rock festivals where they can spread their lies as Bowling for Soup plays on the main stage. The Warped Tour is allowing the anti-choice shlockers, Rock for Life to table at festival shows (despite the opposition to their presence by many of the bands!) And in Ireland, home of some of the most medieval abortion policies on earth, anti-choice snakes plan to picket at airports just to harass people who are forced to travel to other countries for their human rights! These are the same people who show up to try and disrupt our Vagical Mystery Tour shows (see below). The antidote to this spreading contagion is TRUTH and LPJL plans to lay it on them!

SB 5 – “We Didn’t Mean That Shitty Thing, We Meant This OTHER Shitty Thing”

MISSOURI: NOW WITH 1% LESS CRAZY! The anti-choice politicians in Missouri are saying that people misinterpreted the whack-job laws they’re passing in a special legislative session devoted to anti-abortion whack-job laws. Specifically, they say their new laws won’t allow employers to fire people who use birth control. They’ll just allow landlords to evict them! Or anyone who offends their religious sensibilities by having an abortion or getting pregnant out of wedlock. Well they sure are assuring us that they’re not COMPLETELY unhinged… and they’re probably lying when they say that much!

Will Indiana AG Appeal A Teen’s Right to Keep Their Parent Out of Their Uterus?

INDIANA POLITICIANS ARE NOT APPEALING: LITERALLY, AND FIGURATIVELY.

It turns out they won’t say whether or not they plan to appeal a judge’s injunction against a law making it harder for minors to get an abortion – YET. But the general rule of thumb is that, if it makes people’s lives more difficult—especially women’s lives—then Indiana is going to do it. After All, this is the political house that Pence built. . Stay tuned, Hoosiers, and we’ll keep you posted.

David Daleiden: “What’s Does A Guy Gotta Do to Spread More Lies Around Here?!”

DALEIDEN SACK OF SHIT! Professional liar and video-doctor, David Daleiden is the monster who made the surgically enhanced undercover videos that anti-abortion looneys have been trumpeting for years now. Now this sad little broflake claims Planned Parenthood is “terrified” over other videos he has. But his record of deception has evidently convinced a judge to issue an order preventing him from spewing more falsehoods. He’ll have to be content with his prior awards for “Most Deceptive Editing.

VAGICAL UPDATE!

The Vagical Mystery Tour invaded St. Louis, and St. Louis welcomed us with open arms and open mouths! Ya know, from ALL. OF. THE. LAUGHING.

Alex English hosted: Buzz Off, Lucille, Joyelle Johnson, Negin Farsad, Leah Bonnema, and Lizz Winstead! (who began her set with a very special tribute to Missouri’s own Mike Moon)

Thank you NARAL Missouri for coming out! Also, our new friends from the Hope Clinic for Women joined us for some pre-show and post-show tabling!

Speaking of Hope Clinic, The LPJL paid a visit to the clinic this afternoon bearing gifts! And by “gifts” we mean a “wine and tacos” Friday lunch followed by an HGTV-style Abortion Clinic Makeover!

LPJL Daily Takedown – June 29th, 2017

These 2 GOP Senators Aren’t being Heard On Planned Parenthood BECAUSE UTERUS

THE MALE-ORDER HEALTHCARE BILL: One of the biggest reasons that the GOP “health care” bill is a sack of shit is because EVERYONE who wrote it has a hairy sack of entitled balls. And of course, a cornerstone of this bill written entirely by the aforementioned sack-havers, defunds Planned Parenthood—which we know endangers reproductive health, abortion access, and will cause MORE unplanned pregnancies. If your goal is to reduce abortions, that’s oh…. FUCKING STUPID. Two of the GOP Senators who oppose the bill as it now stands are Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine. Hopefully they will flex their brass ovaries and crush this testosterone-fest of a bill.

Indiana’s Neighborhood Watch Are Still Pushing for Parents’ John Hancock’s

MINOR THREAT: INDIANA legislating hasn’t gotten any less nasty since Mike Pence left. Now Indiana wants to take young people who are traumatized by an unwanted pregnancy and add a little more trauma to the mix by making it harder to get an abortion. Currently, those under 18 can ask a court to waive parental consent. A new law would require written consent, ID, and proof of the relationship between the pregnant minor and the parent or guardian to get that waiver. And it makes it a felony to tell a pregnant minor about legal abortion options in other states! Thankfully, a judge has put the law on hold… for now.

***

Get the (BAD!)vertising by CPCs Straight Outta San Fran!

DON’T JUST LIE THERE! A court just ruled that “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” in SAN FRANCISCO don’t have a constitutional right to lie to pregnant people! CPC’s are those phony clinics that fool people seeking an abortion into thinking they’re the real deal, and then badger them to change their mind. So being told they can’t lie pretty much undercuts the reason they exist! The CPC’s actually claimed it violated their rights to be told they couldn’t lie! But an appeals court just ruled it’s OK for SF to regulate “unprotected false or misleading commercial speech.” You would hope that being forced to stop lying will sink these suck-ass institutions, but SF CPC’s won’t take this lying down!

***

THAT’S MORE LIKE IT, IRELAND!

IRISH AYES: The pregnant people of Northern Ireland are finally free to use the National Health Service coverage they get as UK citizens to pay for abortion services… as long as they travel to England to get them. Northern Ireland bans abortion even in cases of rape, incest, and fetal abnormalities, allowing it only if the mother’s life is at risk. Those from Northern Ireland could travel to England for an abortion, but the NHS wouldn’t pay for it… until now. The British government just announced NHS will pay for abortion services for those making the journey. It ain’t perfect—but it’s a lot better than those backward countries where NO abortion services are covered under government-funded healthcare… and tons of people don’t even have health care! (Not naming names.)

Margot Cleveland: Forced Pregnancy is a ‘Nature’ thing.

UNNATURAL CHILDBIRTH: Professional shit-talkers on the right like to say that government restrictions on abortion don’t “force women to have babies.” They say: “NATURE forces women to have babies,” but what we HEAR is: “bullshit.” Nature forces people to have all kinds of things, from near-sightedness to tumors. And since we’re not the helpless cattle you seem to want us to be, we can take steps to change those circumstances—just like we can in the case of an unwanted pregnancy. That’s called SCIENCE—and we use it to understand nature. Besides, people talk about “nature’s way” when their biggest idea for preventing pregnancy is the utterly unnatural concept of abstinence! Try that with rabbits sometime.

LPJL Daily Takedown – June 28th, 2017

The BCRA is B-CRAP

SHITTY AND SHITTIER: The Senate’s “healthcare” bill is actually worse for birth control than the crap-fest House bill! Under Obamacare, health plans must cover contraceptive services without a co-pay. Both the House and Senate bills make birth control more expensive and inaccessible by defunding Planned Parenthood. But the Senate bill also allows states to decide if birth control is even covered! And you can guess what types of “birth control” will be covered in Missouri—abstinence and prayer! Good news & Bad news: The Senate bill is currently stalled—while lawmakers try to make it even worse!

***

The Frontiers of Anti-Choice Lawmakers are Getting Checked In Alaska

CHILL OUT, ALASKA! A lawsuit from Planned Parenthood has finally forced ALASKA to change the cold way it treats those seeking abortions after the first trimester. The state will no longer require a second doctor to get involved in abortions after 12 weeks. And it dropped the TRAPPY rule that blood and an operating room “appropriately staffed and equipped for major surgery” be ready for ANY abortion after the first trimester. Change may come at a glacial pace in Alaska, but at least the long night might be over!

***

Spokane Public Schools Might Have a Change of Heartlessness on Sex Ed.

THE FACTS OF STRIFE: Conservative Uter-orcs in Spokane, Washington are trying to shit-can a progressive sex ed curriculum because it was developed with input from Planned Parenthood, because it mentions sex, oh, and BECAUSE JESUS. And they’re not too happy that the curriculum includes LGBTQ issues. One said the new plan would mean that “teachers with religious convictions about male-female roles and differences” could be forced to stifle their bigotry (paraphrasing.) Washington is a great, progressive state, but there are still pockets of douchebaggery. What’s in your state’s pockets?

Ohio Tri-Masters of None Just Passed Yet Another Fucked Up Anti-choice Bill

COSTUME DRAMA in OHIO: It’s the HANDMAIDS vs. the MaNMAIDS! A bill to ban the safest and most common procedure used in abortions after the first trimester has been sent by an Ohio Senate committee to the full Senate… but not before the committee room hosted a RUNWAY CHALLENGE! Anti-choice forces (mostly male) occupied the front row, smartly decked out in fetus t-shirts, the traditional fashion choice of the intolerant. But the back of the room was lined with pro-choice fashionistas in the very latest VAG POWER accoutrements—HANDMAID’S TALE costumes! SASSY! The anti-choice forces got their bill passed, but pro-choice advocates definitely looked better.

How A Comedy Tour Is Helping Women Retain Their Reproductive Rights

 

LPJL Daily Takedown – June 26, 2017

Conservatives fear the ability to fuck people over will not being allowed in Health Bill

RULES ARE RULES, and this one rules. Anti-abortion lunatics fear that Senate rules might not allow the Senate “health” bill to keep its ban on subsidies for any plan that covers abortion. Under a Senate rule known as reconciliation, all the provisions in the bill have to be mostly about the budget to avoid a filibuster. But anti-abortion parts are clearly all about FUCKING PEOPLE OVER and denying reproductive rights. If the Senate parliamentarian rules that the abortion bullshit IS just abortion bullshit, the bill is DOOMED unless they strip the anti-abortion language. This bill is a disaster either way, but it’s good to see conservatives forced to follow rules for once.

Mike Moon and his Chicken Are Going Viral – In A Good Way

THE CHICKENSHIT HITS THE FAN: Mile Moon, the birdbrain MISSOURI lawmaker who beheaded and gutted a chicken in a Facebook video—BECAUSE ABORTION!—is actually facing some backlash. Turns out, killing things to illustrate you are “pro-life” is considered batshit among rational people. Since his one-man slaughterhouse  video has gone viral, two online petitions want Moon removed from office for his fowl behavior. Throw the cock out!

BREAKING: Anti-Choice Lawmakers in Arkansas don’t Take Heed to Warnings, or Logic.

RAZORBACKLASH: Five extreme anti-abortion laws recently passed in ARKANSAS are being challenged in court before they can take effect.The ACLU is suing over laws designed to harass abortion patients and providers. They include everything from bogus “sex selection” bans to a law that would effectively require notifying the woman’s sex partner or parents! Red states pass these obviously unconstitutional laws by the truckload hoping that something will stick. All we can do is keep fighting back every time they try to stick it to us.

North Carolina: “You Know Who DOESN’T Need  More Money? Faux-Health Clinics Lying to Pregnant People”

MONEY FOR NOTHIN, or WORSE than nothing! NORTH CAROLINA is going to THROW MONEY at “crisis pregnancy centers” – fake pregnancy centers created by religious extremists to DECEIVE and LIE to pregnant people in an attempt to coerce them out of having an abortion. Their evil brand is so tainted that now they’re calling themselves “Pregnancy Resource Centers.” It’s bad enough North Carolina tax payers currently fund these LYING, CHEATING MONEY-PITS to the tune of 300k a year, but now that number will skyrocket from $300,000 to $1.9 million! But fuck those elderly and disabled takers on Medicaid AMIRITE? We’ve got to take what we learn from faux-News and fund some faux-healthcare!

Nothing Makes Liz Wolfe Angrier than Groups of People Speaking Out for the Rights of Humans

THE HANDMAID’S FAIL! The Wolfe-in-Columnist’s-Clothing is moaning about abortion rights protesters who evoke The Handmaid’s Tale, calling them “intellectually dishonest––and, frankly, deeply offensive.” WTF??? The show is about women being forced to serve as incubators—and “frankly,” that’s what the anti-abortion movement is about too! Wolfe howls: “As a pro-life secular feminist, being compared to oppressive religious zealots from a dystopian Hulu show strikes a chord with me.” It strikes a chord with everyone, Liz—Not be Captain Obvi but….THAT’S WHY IT WORKS!

VAGICAL UPDATE!

The Vagical Mysterty Tour took a short RnR at the halfway point!

Lizz Winstead spoke to the Democratic Mayors Association  in Miami over the weekend, told some jokes, and then told them their local clinics needing all of their support. The tour might take a break, but spreading the message of reproductive rights never stops!

Kicking back up again in Chicago tomorrow night with Alonzo Bodden, K’Valentine, Joyelle Johnson, Leah Bonnema, Dina Nina Martinez, Lizz Winstead and special guest, DR. WILLIE PARKER!

What David Daleiden Wants, David Daleiden Doesn’t Get.

SUCKS, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE: Professional video creeper David Daleiden just got SMACKED DOWN in his attempt to disqualify a judge considering contempt charges against him. Daleiden is head of the phoney Center for Medical Progress, an outfit created to make those disgusting doctored Planned Parenthood videos. He faces contempt charges for violating a court order not to release his unethical doctored videos. In a weak attempt to challenge the ruling,  Daleiden filed a complaint that the judge should be disqualified because his wife “liked” Facebook posts from abortion rights groups! JEEZUS! Even the bogus legal challenges of these shits are sexist! Good news is the state was like..

Here’s Eight Michigan Mayors Who Think The GOP Should Keep their MITTS Off Of Planned Parenthood

DON’T DEFUND—DEFEND!!! Some GOOD NEWS—8 MICHIGAN mayors have joined 98 other mayors of cities all over America in signing a letter to the jackals in Washington telling them to keep their paws off Planned Parenthood! PP would be defunded under the medieval “healthcare” plan the Senate is trying to force on us. The 6-page letter touts all the good that Planned Parenthood does, from breast and cervical cancer screenings to testing for STI’s and HIV to providing birth control. We need more local officials to speak up! Thanks, Mayors! CITY HALL FIGHTS FOR YOU!

9-1-1 What’s Your Emergency?” – “Help! Matt Bevin is Doing Shit!

THIS 9-1-1 IS A JOKE! Political skid mark Governor Matt Bevin has filed “emergency” regulations blatantly intended to shut down Kentucky’s ONLY remaining abortion clinic. The rules are a bunch of the same old “admitting privileges” crap that paleo-states are always foisting on clinics. Bevin isn’t even trying to be subtle about it. The only thing worse than a TRAP law is a bogus EMERGENCY TRAP law. Help LPJL help Kentucky fight back, and come to our show in LOUISVILLE on July 22!

You Can Call it “INHUMAN Resources” Thanks to Governor Eric Greitens

MORE MISSOURI MISERY: Say that 10 times fast—because that’s how often Missouri is in the news lately for doing maximum FUCKHOLERY to reproductive rights. The latest MO problems are going down in a special session of the legislature JUST to fuck with abortion rights! The state senate has just passed a bill to slap clinics with more TRAP-CRAP … oh, and to allow landlords and employers to deny you housing or work if they don’t like you using birth control. Get your mind around that quick, because THERE WILL BE MORE. But LPJL will be in St. Louis this June 29 to help say NO, MO!

Trump Receives His First(?) Urgent Invitation To A Planned Parenthood

INVITING DISASTER: While Repro-WRECKING BALL Donald Trump was flogging his misogynist policies in IOWA, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards publicly extended an invitation to visit a Planned Parenthood health center. Richards’ invite said: “Your health care repeal bill will cause millions of women to lose their insurance, could allow insurers to drop maternity coverage, and block people with Medicaid coverage from accessing preventive care at Planned Parenthood.” Sadly, the GROPER-IN-CHIEF didn’t grab this opportunity.

***

Anti-Choice Laws: Maybe They’re born With It, Maybe It’s Make-Believe!

STATES OF (SCIENCE) DENIAL: Everything that the anti-abortion TROLLS out there believe is a lie. And they’re fine with that—they made up the lies! A new study shows 10 categories of batshit anti-abortion state laws that fly in the face of science—everything from TRAP-law fuckery to bogus “fetal pain” bills to LIES about abortion causing breast cancer. But don’t expect any of the hateful anti-choice minions out there to LEARN anything they hear from scientific research, it’s much easier to form an opinion from what’s written on the side of some crackpot’s van.

New York State is Choosing ‘GET A LIFE” for Clinic Protestors

Finally, someone is standing up against the HATE AND SPITTLE-SPEWING crowds screeching outside of women’s health clinics. New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman is suing to stop the patients of an abortion clinic in Queens from being “harassed, threatened, and menaced” by the anti-choice vampires outside. The suit asks for a 16-foot buffer zone to at least grant patients a little safety. Clinic harassment doesn’t just happen in red states! But at least in this instance, New York clinics have someone on their side.

***

What’s a Person? Asking for a friend. That friend is Maine.

MAINE CULPRITS: The state of MAINE is trying to grease the slimy skids toward total “personhood” for fetuses, zygotes, embryos, and unattached sperm. The senate passed a bill that would allow wrongful death suits over the demise of an “unborn viable fetus” of 24 weeks or more. This is part of a long-running anti-choice scam to give fetuses legal “personhood,” as a way of undermining abortion rights. This law supposedly excludes abortion, but opponents fear it could be used against abortion doctors or anyone trying to terminate their own pregnancy. Don’t get “Person-hoodwinked,” Maine!

Chris Hughes is the ONLY Person Talking About The Important Things –

Like Planned Parenthood’s meddling in American Democracy?

MUDDLED ON MEDDLING: Um, Who are the ones meddling in unwanted places? These anti-choice, anti-woman dipwicks don’t think before they talk—and when they do, they don’t think very clearly. The Moonie-bin of the Washington Times is out with a laughable op-ed from “Christian political activist” Chris Hughes. This dimbulb brilliantly asks why everyone is so upset with Russians meddling in our elections when Planned Parenthood “meddled” in the Georgia Special House election by making donations “in an attempt to sway an election.” (! and !!) YOU. FUCKING. TOOL. Over $55 million was spent on this election, including over $18 million from outside super PACs and party committees for the GOP candidate. Don’t bitch about money in politics, Chris, it’s the only thing keeping your people on top.

Anti-choice Avon Lady Karen Handel Won the Georgia Special Election

You know the former Georgia congressman who said “No one has ever died from not having health insurance?” YOU KNOW, the guy who is now in charge of THE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. The guy who keeps hiring anti birth control and anti abortion Orcs to help him shape America’s healthcare policy?  Well anyway, his vacant congressional seat was just filled by Planned Parenthood defundamentalist Karen Handel. And on the same day another anti-choice bill puts a bruise on the peach state. Go Bulldogs!

Righteous resisters in little rock are kicking some anti choice Arkans-ass

Let’s Call the hogs… out on their bullshit!! The ACLU and Planned Parenthood have both filed lawsuits to stop anti-abortion piggies from running hog wild in the Razorback state. The ACLU suit goes after a ban on the safest and most common method of abortion after the first trimester and other TRAP-law crap-laws about medical records and fetal tissue. A separate suit by Planned Parenthood challenges a law that lets the state close health clinics for being in violations of ANY rule, no matter how minor.

Ohio is Once Again Chucking A Shit-Brick, Woman-Hating, Anti-Choice Bill Back Into The Abortion Battle

OHIO (HEART) BEAT-DOWN: Lawmakers in Ohio continue to beat a heartless 6-week ban, (which they manipulatively have named a “fetal heartbeat bill”) into the ground. They just reintroduced the fourth version in the past 6 years. It would ban abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be first detected—at around 4 weeks… or about the same time a FUCKING PREGNANCY is often first detected! This piece of shit bill is no more viable than the fetii it pretends to protect. Ohio Governor John Kasich has already vetoed an identical bill. But this gives GOV K-SICK cover to sign another bill that virtually bans all abortions after the first trimester. LPJL HEARTS OHIO! And we don’t want them treated so heartlessly. (Our friends at the Preterm clinic in Cleveland were just vandalized for the 3rd time in 3 weeks.) The Vagical Mystery Tour will be in Cleveland on July 13 to show support. Have a heart and come out!
