For Canada’s “Office of Religious Freedom”, non-believers don’t matter

As much as we Canadians make fun of Americans (yes, I am a Canuck, people), the truth is that our own country isn't really that much better when it comes to religious interference in government. With the Conservative party in power, it seems as though they are intent on copying the American model: in other words, they wish to turn this country into a mini-sectarian state in order to please their highly reli ...

Don’t use Pro-Lifers as surrogate mothers, people!

Let me give you a nightmare scenario: because of medical complications, you and your spouse decide to employ a surrogate mother to bring your baby to term. After the massive contract fees and the cost of in vitro fertilization, the pregnancy takes and everything is hunky-dory. For a while. Then, in the 2nd trimester, an ultrasound reveals the baby is having serious development problems. The doctor concludes ...

Irish PM doesn’t want to feel rushed into changing abortion law

Since I first blogged about this a few days ago, the death of Savita Halappanavar has caused a lot of understandable outrage in Ireland. It seems her highly avoidable passing has rudely awakened a generation of young people who are shocked their own health could be threatened due to the persistence of religious dogma. Even more shocking, they're about to realize change is impossibly slow, given the ones hol ...

Doctors refused life saving abortion because “it’s a Catholic country”

Ireland may be quickly de-converting to atheism faster than any other country, but that certainly doesn't mean the fight against superstition and religious indoctrination is over. If anything, the stakes have gotten higher, especially when it comes to certain key issues which don't seem to go away. A young woman by the name of Savita Halappanavar was told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pai ...

Gary Cass is a hilarious bible-nut

Here are some of my favorite ridiculous tropes: 1) Harvard University is Jesus' #1 enemy, because there's learnin' going on there. 2) America apparently elects people that like killing babies (he may be referring to abortion, but I think their ICBM's do a better job. 3) You can't be a good Christians unless you can instantly kill somebody with a gun. 4) Secular progressives have abandoned God (that's why th ...

Contraception is a gateway drug to abortion!

Catholics are hilarious. It's been 60 years since the invention of the pill, and these dinosaurs are still trying to argue that it's the most evil invention since the guillotine. Abortion and birth control are two sides of the same coin. The currency of which is the prevention and/or the destruction of nascent human life. While some forms of contraception, such as the condom or the diaphragm, are not themse ...

Raped woman, jailed, denied access to morning-after pill due to “religious objections”

There's no denying the fact as of late, the religious right has been flexing its political muscle, and the result has been a steady erosion of women's reproductive rights. It's gotten so bad, in Mississippi a Federal Judge had to get involved when the state effectively declared war on abortion. U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Jordan entered a temporary restraining order and set a hearing for July 11 to det ...

It’s OK to lie to women about their pregnancy

So, it turns out it's totally OK to give false, misleading information to women seeking to terminate their pregnancies. America has essentially slowly lost its collective mind over the fact women need abortions, regardless of how Jesus lovers feel about it. Mississippi has managed to effectively make it impossible for anyone living in the state to get one (although the Feds had to get involved), and to make ...
