Mississippi has a lot of dubious distinctions to its credit. The Magnolia State has the highest rate of teen pregnancy and is also the poorest state in the Union. And if all goes according to plan, the state is in line to earn another dishonorable title as the only state in the country without an abortion clinic.

Is Apple's Siri ultra-conservative? 

 

 

I do not have an iPhone 4S yet. I desperately want one, though, and for one reason alone: to taunt Siri with ridiculous questions and requests. 

Siri is Apple’s version of a “digital assistant.” The official Apple website declares, “Your wish is its command.” 

Some find it scary that this machine “knows what you mean” and “has so much to tell you.” But I think it’s pretty awesome.

What are the consequences of Initiative 26? 

 

Wherever I am today, I’m stoked to be here discussing crowd-pleasing topics like unplanned pregnancies, abortion and rape.

I haven’t been left with a line to cross here; I’ve seen a dead fetus plastered on a van drive by me on campus this year — it’s all out in the open now.

I’m not associated with Personhood USA, the Colorado-based group proposing Initiative 26 be passed here in Mississippi, or any other sect labeling itself “pro-life,” nor am I associated with any pro-choice sect.

Since the Pill hit the U.S. market in 1960, millions of women have been prescribed this method of birth control, and more than 12 million American women are currently taking it. 

These women are both young and old, single and married. Though they may be from different backgrounds, every woman who has taken the Pill has one thing in common: She is taking a rational and responsible approach to her sexual health and family planning.

Obama and his constituents finally reached a budget compromise late Friday evening and avoided a government shutdown, but they’re not quite done meddling with money yet.

Obama and his constituents finally reached a budget compromise late Friday evening and avoided a government shutdown, but they’re not quite done meddling with money yet.

In February, the House of Representatives passed the Pence Amendment 240-185 to strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funding provided by Title X, a program that provides grants for family planning services.

If MTV’s intentions of airing “Teen Mom” is the prevention of teen pregnancy, then they are doing a horrible job.

I look at the girls on “Teen Mom” and wonder how MTV thinks these girls are positive role models and show that teen parenthood isn’t a life you want a part of. If MTV wants to send out that message, don’t put girls on the show who are more concerned with raising their child than their dating life or publicity.
