(video) The Republicans’ all-out war on women
By : Elizabeth Schulte - Thursday March 3, 2011
Reports on the right’s latest assault—and the stirrings of resistance. ANTI-CHOICE Republicans are waging an all-out attack on women’s right to abortion—in Congress, where the Republican-run House voted to strip funding from Planned Parenthood; and in individual states, where legislators are proposing bills so extreme that they could ban abortions altogether. But supporters of abortion rights are starting to push back. Thousands took part in marches across the (...)

A Tale of Three Nations: Freedom, Religion and the Rights of Women
By : William John Cox - Thursday February 24, 2011
As the youth-led Freedom Movement of 2011 spreads rapidly across the Middle East and around the world, one can only wonder what would be happening in Iraq today if the U.S. had not invaded eight years ago. What does the movement portend for the rights of women in other nations, such as Tunisia and in the United States? The rights of women continue to deteriorate in Iraq under the U.S. installed Shiite government; their status is now threatened by Islamists in Tunisia, the most secular of (...)

More of the Same Game
By : Daveparts - Monday June 1, 2009
More of the Same Game By David Glenn Cox The Republicans rant and froth at the mouth over Obama’s choice of Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court Justice, taking quotes out of context and using her membership in Hispanic organizations as they try to paint her into a corner as a racist. The left is giddy with diversity as a Latina and woman was Obama’s choice, and of course women and minorities should be better represented on the Supreme Court. Jackie Robinson was chosen to be the (...)

Abortion: Government’s Choice?
By : William John Cox - Monday October 27, 2008
By William John Cox Any government having the power to prohibit abortions also has the power to require abortions. Any government having the power to prohibit birth control also has the power to forcibly sterilize women (and men). The pregnant woman is forcibly strapped to a Gurney and wheeled into the treatment room where her fetus is aborted and her fallopian tubes are tied. Why? A test has shown that the fetus has Down syndrome and she already has one living child. Where? (...)

Iraq, where women once had more rights and freedom than most others in the Arab world, has turned deadly for women who dream of education and a professional career.

Afghanistan : Women’s Lives Are Worse Than Ever

President Bush claims that Afghani Women are "learning the Blessings of Freedom" But all we’ve given them is Poverty, Death and Abuse Women’s lives worse than ever. That’s the actual headline to an article in The Independent about the state of women’s (and girls’) lives in Afghanistan, six years after our war to "liberate" them. At a White House Celebration of International Women’s Day, March 12, 2004, President Bush said: "In the last two-and-a-half (...)

by Brian McAfee The basic human and civil right of a woman not to be raped and if she is, not to be held responsiible for it is front and center right now in Pakistan. Pakistan, a nation of about 166 million people, is one of the world’s poorest countries. The issue in question is a law, established in 1979, by U.S. supported dictator Zia Ul Haq called the Hudood Ordinance Law. This law basically states that rape victims are liable for prosecution for adultery unless they can (...)

By SHANNON McCAFFREY MACON, Ga. (AP) — President Bush’s once-solid relationship with Southern women is on the rocks. "I think history will show him to be the worst president since Ulysses S. Grant," said Barbara Knight, a self-described Republican since birth and the mother of three. "He’s been an embarrassment." In the heart of Dixie, comparisons to Grant, a symbol of the Union, are the worst sort of insult, especially from a Macon woman who voted for Bush in 2000 but (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
