Walk for Choice

Despite having the state Attorney General advise him that the measure was likely unconstitutional, Idaho Governor “Butch” Otter signed a 20 week abortion ban into law. Idaho, requires that all anti-abortion bills be reviewed first by the A.G. to ensure taxpayer dollars won’t be wasted on frivolous court cases.  But even though the A.G. brought up the unconstitutionality of the bill, the governor decided himself that it would probably be ok.

Walk for Choice Idaho, anyone?

There’s so much anti-choice news today I can’t even keep up. What a depressing week.


Video of Gaylon Alcaraz, director of the Chicago Abortion Fund, expressing her disapproval of the racist anti-abortion billboard revealed in Chicago today.

I’ll write more about the event later. I also have some other great clips to post.
