Minnesota is 7th worst state to be a woman

No country for young women.
In the past few weeks, Minnesota has been labeled the gayest, the bike-friendliest, and the most hipster-y, but apparently it's no place for a lady.

Yet another declarative article has slammed our fair state for being one of the ten worst to be a woman of reproductive age. That puts us in with the likes of Mississippi and Texas.

AlterNet assembled the list based on how much restriction is placed on abortion services, access to reproductive health care and birth control, and funding for family planning programs. Mississippi topped the list for having only two legal abortion clinics and the third highest teen pregnancy rate. South Dakota earned its number three rank for instituting a 72-hour waiting period and mandatory counseling session before an abortion can legally be performed.

Minnesota ranked seventh because of House Speaker Kurt Zellers's proposed ban on abortions after 20 weeks, and another bill banning public funding of abortions, both of which passed the House recently. Though neither has become law yet, it's apparently bad enough that they're even being considered.

Not to add fuel to this fire, but we'd throw in that a bunch of legislators including Michele Bachmann and Chip Cravaack also wanted to redefine rape in an attempt to limit public funding of abortions (you know, "rape" versus "rape rape"). Minnesota is also the proud home-base for BirthorNot.com troll and hoaxster Pete Arnold.

So, hike up our skirts and start running for the border (not South Dakota's obviously)? Or hope that we can get the gays, hipsters and bikers to have our back?

Let's see, South Dakota is worse and we are like Texas. If Obama has his way Sharia law will prevail and you girls plus 3 other wifes will not have any Contraceptives. Get real Jessica, if you are going to rate this great state by How your right to kill a baby might be changed; as sole criteria then please feel free to move to IRAN!

I'm gonna have to call BS on this one. The fact that some a-hole GOPers managed to push through some cockamamie legislation seems like a flimsy premise on which to base such a ranking.

Of course, I'll leave that to the ladies to decide if this is true or not. I'm pretty sure they would know better than I!

So...somebody who has publicly and repeatedly defended Roe vs. Wade is now going to outlaw not only abortion, but also contraceptives? You leap over gaps in logic like the Duke boys. Please take your tinfoil hat and leave this conversation to grownups.

This comment would be quite cutting and mean-spirited...

if it made any f&*$ing sense whatsoever.

Thank you for proving that the "pro-life" side of the debate is still replete with incoherent assholes.

I beg to differ. I present 5 ways in which VAGINAS>PENISES:

1. Vaginas are infinitely more conducive to wearing tight-fitting catsuits. 2. For fans of functional design, the vagina is a far more intricately-crafted and complex machine. 3. Vaginas have proven, beyond all doubt, to be 10-12 times more difficult to accidentally catch in a zipper. 4. For fans of lexicology, the vagina (and it’s ‘supporting players’) present a far more interesting and appealing array of terms, e.g. Mons pubis, labia Majora, & vulva VS. scrotum, preputial mucosa & sulcus. 5. It is EXTREMELY difficult to hide a dimebag in a penis.

He's right to shame the author though. Ultra feminist c*nts are some of the stinkiest out there.

 When you cross the border into South Dakota, you'll find dozens of little shacks where you can buy fireworks from federally subsidized millionaire farmers.

When you cross back into Minnesota, you'll find little Planned Parenthood clinics.
