It feels like we’ve been hearing about 2016 since 2013—probably because we have—but finally we have the major party conventions behind us.

Uterine Justice

No, it’s not an idea for a band name (though that would be awesome). Uterine Justice refers to the latest and not-so-greatest attempts to mansplain how us ladies need to be better baby-ovens and stop trying to assert rights to our own bodies based on things like medicine and science.

Abortion Rights: Back to the Future

Is abortion the only issue where both sides of the argument claim to be pro? With capital punishment, you’re pro or anti. Gun control? Pro or anti. Same-sex marriage? Pro or anti.
