Friday Reads

Wisconsin's "right-to-work" law has been struck down by a judge.

Good for California regarding birth control pills without a doctor's prescription.

In the old days, women had to go through the humiliation of pap smears and pelvic exams, neither of which are reliable, to get them.

Men by any other label do not belong in women's spaces.

Sanders got caught in yet another lie:

Senator Bernie Sanders was excited on Friday to announce that he would travel to Rome this month to give a high-profile speech at the Vatican, but the trip quickly spurred an international dust-up amid confusion about how he got invited and whether he would meet Pope Francis.

The Sanders campaign made the announcement on Friday as the Vermont senator made the rounds on the morning television news shows. Mr. Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, said he would take a break from campaigning in New York, just days before the April 19 primary there, to attend a conference hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, a scholarly association in Vatican City that was established by Pope John Paul II in 1994.

Mr. Sanders did not initially correct interviewers who suggested that he would meet with the pope, but he later clarified that he had not confirmed whether the two men would actually meet.

Pretty cynical ploy if you ask me.
