    August 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The most outspoken opponents of Texas' fetal pain law may have chanted “Hail Satan,” but actress Kathleen Turner has a different view of its most celebrated opponent: “Thank the Lord for the Wendy Davises of the world.” Turner wrote in The Hollywood Reporter this morning that she found Davis' 11-hour filibuster against the state's 20-week abortion ban “exhilarating to watch.” In addition to the pink-sneaker-clad state senator, Turner saluted Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores for having the “courage to speak of her own experience with abortion.” During testimony on a sex education bill in April, Lucy...

      The Campaign to Control America's VoteLiberal Group Leads Fight Against Bush Judicial Nominees and School ChoiceBy Patrick J. ReillySummary: Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen is the latest victim of People for the American Way's campaign against President Bush's judicial nominees. On September 5, the Senate Judiciary Committee in a 10-9 party-line vote rejected her nomination to the Fifth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals. When the electronic voting machines introduced in last month's Florida primary elections failed to correct the voting irregularities that appeared during the state's 2000 presidential election, People for the American Way (PFAW)...

    July 11, 2002 | Kathleen Turner was on television recently talking about her pain and suffering. "The damage that I have, the damage I'll always have could have been prevented," the actress told "Good Morning, America" host Diane Sawyer on Feb. 19. Sawyer was sympathetic. Turner, she knew from a previous interview, had been battling rheumatoid arthritis for over a year now. "You're still in pain?" Sawyer asked. "Well," Turner responded, "as they say: only when you walk." Turner then went on to mention a Web site, www.ra-access.com, where fellow sufferers could get help. Sawyer eagerly repeated the site's address...

    TWENTY seconds. That, give or take a few seconds, is how long the beauteous movie star Kathleen Turner stands stark naked in "The Graduate," the weary new comedy that opened last night at the Plymouth Theater. This dimly lighted moment of exposure generated heavy-breathing headlines in London when Ms. Turner appeared there two years ago in the same play (inspired by the 1967 film of the same title), and it is presumably one big reason the show's New York incarnation has a $5.3 million advance ticket sale. (It doesn't hurt that the production features Jason Biggs and Alicia Silverstone, the...
