ChelseaPersonal, WomenLeave a Comment

This afternoon I’ll be live on Catholic radio in Lexington, KY to talk about why biotechnology is a women’s issue. Pay attention, ladies! Porn isn’t the only industry commodifying women. Tune in at 5pm EST: Every show Mike asks a “question of the day.” Today’s question is: In general, do you think women are more objectified in our culture … Read More

Saw this image on Facebook. Not sure who, exactly, it should be attributed to. Some have said CoCo Chanel (that’s who is pictured here), others the movie I Don’t Know How She Does It with Sarah Jessica Parker. Either way, it makes me think of another quote from the great Alice von Hildebrand “Unwittingly, the feminists acknowledge the superiority of … Read More

Reductio ad Lady Smarts

Chelsea2012 Election, WomenLeave a Comment

Lesson learned: a non-recovery, anemic economy is “good enough” to win if you are a good campaigner — a good, extremely negative campaigner. Oh, and women want free birth control something fierce. I can’t honestly say that I’m surprised at the outcome of the election, but I’m still disappointed — in my country, in general, but in my gender, specifically. … Read More

Chelsea2012 Election, Women2 Comments

I can’t believe Planned Parenthood supporters still peddle this nonsense. During Tuesday night’s debate Obama said: “Millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country.” Repeat after me: Planned Parenthood … Read More

Planned Parenthood and “Women’s Health”

ChelseaPlanned Parenthood, Women2 Comments

Over at Patheos, Rep. Rebecca Hamilton, a pro-life Democrat, gives the one of the best Planned Parenthood “war on women” smackdowns that I’ve read yet: Planned Parenthood and their allies in the media and politics have so warped the issue of women’s health that they have cast the debate entirely around what is good for Planned Parenthood. Anything that is … Read More
