Thousands of people have spoken, and the winner of this year’s NARAL Pro-Choice America Hall of Fame is:
This coalition of faith leaders, reproductive-justice and pro-choice allies, and other Mississippi-based groups successfully convinced their neighbors to reject a dangerous and far-reaching “personhood” measure.
Hats off to them!
And while we celebrate our pro-choice heroes, we recognize that 2011 brought a slew of new attacks on women’s freedom and privacy, ranging from the tragic to the ridiculous.
Every bushel has its rotten apples, and this year, Fox News Channel was voted rottenest of them all.
Remember when a Fox News commentator compared insurance coverage of birth control to manicures and pedicures?
Remember when Bill O’Reilly said that many women won’t use birth control because they’re “blasted out of their minds when they have sex,” and then said no-cost birth control would increase unemployment?
Remember when Sean Hannity said birth control is “not about women’s health?”
We remember. And it looks like you did, too.
Fox News Channel is the newest member of the Hall of Shame.
