Today, Jennifer Lawrence’s exclusive cover story with Vanity Fair hits the stands. The popular Hunger Games’ star speaks openly about the internet scandal involving the stolen nude photos of her. She calls it a “sex crime,” and says that anyone who purposely looked at the photos of her is guilty.
It would be an understatement to call Chip Reece a comic book aficionado. He writes comic book reviews at StashMyComics.com and even creates his own comics…when he’s not being a social worker or spending time with his son, Ollie.
As soon as Rebekah Chaveste swallowed the RU-486 pill at a Planned Parenthood clinic, she regretted it. “I was crying and I was alone,” recalled Chaveste, a 20-year-college student who lives in the Sacramento area. “Thank God for smartphones,” she told Catholic San Francisco. Sitting in her car outside the Planned Parenthood, “I googled RU-486” and found a website for RU-486 reversals, abortionpillreversal.com.
On this edition of Real Politik James speaks with Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit charity established in 1982. For the past three decades, she has led a national, grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in the public health system.
Loe Fisher has researched, analyzed and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics and politics of vaccination to become one of the world’s leading consumer advocacy experts on the subject. NVIC is not “anti-vaccine,” as mainstream news media might encourage the public to believe. Rather, it is pro-safe vaccines and exists to ensure the informed consent of the parents and patients who chose to vaccinate.
One of the most important things parents can do is recognize the clinical signs of an adverse reaction their children may exhibit to one or more vaccine administrations. Understanding, for example, the symptoms of brain inflammation is essential “because brain inflammation has been associated with vaccinations since small pox vaccine” since the early 1900s. “Almost any vaccine can do that.”
When Loe Fisher’s son was two-and-a-half, he suffered an adverse reaction to the DPT vaccine.
Right now, what’s on the line in this country is whether or not we’re going to have the legal right in the future to make choices about federally recommended vaccines.

The thing the Texas abortion industry has feared has come into fruition: the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has overturned an injunction allowing Texas to enforce its abortion law, effective immediately. This will effectively shutter all but seven abortion facilities in the Lone Star State unless clinics are able to upgrade facilities to comply with the regulations under HB2.
