The weight and the importance of the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the  constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act is still sinking in but the  divisions between a world with health insurance reform and a world without are  becoming clearer. Just take a look at conservatives’ response to Chief Justice  John Roberts who cast the deciding vote to uphold the law. Even more  telling, listen to what Sen. Mitch McConnell thinks is the real issue in the health  care economy (hint: it’s not the uninsured and the cost of their care). The  Supreme Court may have settled the immediate question of whether or not the law  will stand, but it’s clear that this battle isn’t going away anytime soon, and  for women that means we can expect our rights and our lives to remain political  fodder for the right.

Speaking of which, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has a carefully cultivated  image as an independent-minded conservative, but don’t let that fool you. He’s  as anti-woman, anti-family as the rest of his party.

A key component to the anti-choice strategy is confusion, and in Minnesota they’ve taken that strategy one step further by  opening up the “Women’s Care Center” crisis pregnancy center right across from  the “Women’s Health Center”.

Mindy Townsend takes a look at the new Pixar movie “Brave” and the drummed-up controversy over whether or not Merida is a lesbian.

A new study suggests that children who were spanked develop mental health problems as  adults.

With the Penn State child rape tragedy transitioning into related  prosecutions and civil suits, a new batch of leaked emails suggest that it was  none other than beloved coach Joe Paterno who blocked the ouster of Jerry  Sandusky once university officials found out he was raping kids on campus.  That’s Jo-Pa’s legacy right there: acting as an accessory to child rape.

July is national HIV awareness month. Here’s what you can do to help mark it.

Finally, let’s end on an inspirational note: check out this group of amazing young girls out to change  the world.
