The birth control and abortion-related media frenzy continued this week, as an ultrasound bill was signed into law in Virginia, Rush Limbaugh continued his blab blab blabbing about sluts, Michele Bachmann warned women that free contraception was a slippery slope toward the U.S. becoming communist China, and state legislatures across the U.S. continued trying to get all up in our reproductive business. Like I wrote last week: It’s hard to keep track of what’s going on where in terms of all these abortion and contraception battles; what you should be concerned about and what’s just plain silly; what’s likely to make an impact. So once again, I’m rounding up the week’s reproductive rights newsâ€”good, bad and weirdâ€”for you here. Read it and weep, ladies. Or get mad. Or write a rap song about it, like Amber Tamblyn did.
