Another week, another roundup! Here's what caught our eyes this week around the Internet:
In the "Beyond WTF" file, Mother Jones dissects the proposed law in South Dakota that could have legalized the murder of abortion providers. Fortunately, Feministing announced Thursday morning that it's already been shelved.
Tonight's Law & Order episode will be based on the murder of Dr. George Tiller: a late-term abortion provider is murdered while attending church. The episode, titled "Dignity," will have "some significant twists of plot and character, with police officers and assistant district attorneys sometimes taking forceful stands on one side of the abortion debate or the other, only to later express doubt when their involvement in the case becomes more personal."
Here's how I spent mine:
- Being disappointed upon discovering it wasn't Pro-Cupcake Life Day
- Eating leftover cupcakes from Bitch's clothing swap/supporting a woman's right to choose
- WONDERING WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE
The murder of Kansas physician George Tiller is a devastating and,
unfortunately, perfect illustration of the stupid, hypocritical,
blindered self-righteousness of the anti-choice movement. And just as
painful as the news itself is seeing the variety of twists and dodges
with which the mainstream media does—or doesn't—cover it.
