    I. Just. Can’t.
    How did the state even get their hands on this information?!?!?
    The rage is unreal. Scorched earth doesn’t even compare.
    Not only did Missouri “gift” us with Todd Akin, about 15 years ago they elected a corpse to the U.S. Senate. I am so glad I no longer live in a notch in the Bible Belt.

    WHY would Planned Parenthood let that info be used that way??? What the fuck!!!!!!! They always ask me date of last period, and I expect that to go nowhere beyond the nurse practitioner who prescribes me the pill, along with my answers to other questions that are basically a wellness check. God help us.

    Forgive me if I’m overstepping, but it looks like the third link leads to an article about a woman’s boyfriend faking his own death, rather than anything about racists. Not that the fake death article isn’t interesting, but I’m also interested in reading the intended article.
