Turns out the access to contraception decreases abortion rates – http://chuckcurrie.blogs.com/chuck_currie/2012/11/-contraception-reduces-abortion-rate.html

Fox News says that women aren’t women any longer and the war on the sexes is really a war on men – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/26/fox-news-women-suzanne-venker-arent-women-anymore-war-on-men_n_2193234.html  They have since retracted this statement but the original is pretty eye opening.

From Frank Schaeffer at Why I Still Talk To Jesus In Spite Of Everything – A Christian answer to the lies of the Pro-Life Movement – http://www.patheos.com/blogs/frankschaeffer/2012/11/a-christian-answer-to-the-lies-of-the-evangelicalcatholic-pro-life-movement/

Today’s featured SASBN member is Mari of Mari’s Muses

Mari is the middle of 5 kids — and the only girl — in a male-dominant, semi-quiverfull, rather patriarchal homeschooling family. She was raised in a patriarchal church and most of her social network as a child consisted of children of patriarchal or quiverfull families. This is the story of how she was sucked into the patriarchal/quiverfull belief system, and how she was lovingly (and in some cases, not so lovingly!) escorted out.
