When Bishops Become Bullies

The arrogance of the 350 Bishops of the US Catholic Church is mind-boggling. Though they are facing bankruptcy in many states because of the shameful tradition of priests molesting children, they still have the nerve to claim a right to make moral decisions for women. It is time for the women of America to say no to the bullying of a tiny group of men who will never know what it means to make tough choices about pregnancy; or have a baby; or raise a child; or scramble to care for a family.

Right-wing, Republican and Tea-Party women are scary because they have not developed the courage and independence to step away from the protective shadow of power. What would it take for them to stand up for the rest of us?

An Open Letter Of Thanks To The Buffett Foundation

Charlotte Taft

More than 50 million women in this country have chosen legal abortion, with 50 million men  involved. It is time we all came out of the closet to claim what we have known all along—we are good people making moral choices in difficult circumstances.

The Audacity of Goodness

Charlotte Taft

When abortion provider Renee Chelian created a video called “Every Day, Good Women Choose Abortion” all she was thinking about was what would be good for her patients. In return, she is being violently attacked by anti-choice forces.

The Stupak Amendment: An Assault On Women

Charlotte Taft

The Stupak-Pitts amendment would actually result the loss of abortion coverage many women already have because it prohibits the new private insurance market as well as any possible public option from providing such coverage.
