    This is the state of abortion politics. Both sides see it as battle of good-vs-evil. One side sees themselves in Schindler’s List; the other sees America sliding into The Handmaid’s Tale. Every word and deed is used to mark which side is winning. Both sides are in a trench war battling over inches. With public opinion and constitutional law settled, each side fights over anything that could change the battlefield.

     

    I came to this realization in 2011 when I covered the debate over “Protect Life Act.” The Affordable Care Act had recently been passed, but Republicans had then taken control of Congress. The bill would change how hospitals receiving Medicaid or Medicare funding treat women needing an emergency abortion. The law required that the hospital conduct the abortion or transfer t

But the woman who stood up to deliver the incantation was not the person you’d expect. She described herself to the crowd as an agnostic. “I have a lesbian friend in Kentucky,” she added.

      New     You guys all need to stop with the mea culpa's now . 90 plus % of us realize those things are very fluid and things change for a number of reasons. Also it's a GAME......nobody going to live or die because a prediction on a recruit didn't pan out. Keep up the good work guys I enjoy reading every one of ya. Go dawgs!!

  • all coach Dabo Swinney has done it. Where's the outrage when those guys did it?

  • But after finishing their regular season on the last weekend of November, the Sooners fell from the No. 3 slot to No. 4 in the final Playoff ranking – leaving Big 12 members wondering whether and how much they were impacted by not having that 13th game (or in the parlance of the selection committee, a “13th data point”).

  •  Brown & his family have kept a lot close to vest. Are you both putting Barn out in front b/c of info you have heard and been told? I'm not asking for sources or anything like that.
