More Battles "The Right's War on Women" & a Little or no coverage

 At a time when even 'Serious' news sites give all the front page to Charlie Sheen, the reproductive rights of Americans at large are clearly under attack.

 Is feminism so passe? Why is this seen as a purely women's or Feminist issue, when it impacts everyone in the U.S.?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/utah-women-may-face-mur...

 Guilty until proven innocent? A bill written by a man with a long track record of anti- women, & anti- freedom legislation.

 Where is this all going to end? I think women have to demand front page coverage of this & other anti-women, anti- fredom, anti-family legislation currently on the U.S.'s Right Wing's front burners.
