Texas Bill Aims To Take Away Voting Rights From Women Who Have Abortions

Women’s reproductive health will be under constant attack under a Trump presidency and a majority Republican House and Senate. Another example of this was recently seen in the Texas Bill 948, which would make abortion a felony, and consequently take away women’s right to vote.  The bill was introduced by Republican representative Tony Tinderholt. The bill argues [Read More…]

Republican Arrested After Grabbing Woman By Her Genitals

The infamous video of Trump bragging about grabbing women by their genitals was sadly not enough to cost him to presidency. Enough Americans either thought this wasn’t a big deal or that his other “qualities” outweighed him bragging about sexual assault. It still bothers me that such a video wasn’t enough to ruin the campaign of a [Read More…]

New bill in Arizona aims to ban college classes that discuss social justice

Arizona House Bill 2120 seriously aims to ban college classes or events that discuss social justice. If a university would break this potential law, they could lose millions in financial support. Unsurprisingly, the sponsor of the bill is an older white male conservative, Bob Thorpe.  Thorpe actually has the following tweet pinned on his Twitter profile: PLEASE SIGN THIS [Read More…]

Child Dies Because Parents Prayed Instead of Calling 911

I hate seeing stories like these. Seth Johnson, the 7 year-old child of Timothy and Sarah Johnson, recently died from pancreatitis and acute sepsis. This could have been prevented if Seth’s parents got medical help for their son, but instead relied on prayer. The Johnsons noticed that their son was ill, but refused to do anything because [Read More…]

Ohio promotes pseudoscience and harms its most vulnerable women by banning abortions at 20 weeks

Ohio Govenor John Kasich vetoed the 6-week abortion ban based on a fetal heartbeat, but accepted the 20-week abortion ban based on fetal pain. While the 6-week ban would have been absurd, the 20 week ban is also horrible. First off, this bill is based entirely on pseudoscience. I provided scientific testimony against South Carolina’s 20-week [Read More…]

Trevor Noah tries to discuss racism with anti-BLM conservative Tomi Lahren

As I’ve mentioned recently on my blog, I am trying to seek out more people who disagree with me politically. I understand this is a difficult thing to do so I really appreciate when people can manage civil dialogue even when they strongly disagree. Trevor Noah recently interviewed Tomi Lahren, a conservative and outspoken critic of the [Read More…]

If Trump creates a registry for Muslims, he can add this atheist to the list

During his campaign, Donald Trump called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” He also talked about creating a database for Muslims. Many called him out for such outrageous and bigoted proposals, but now an adviser says President-Elect Trump is still considering [Read More…]
