    Shortly before the news broke that a judge had struck down a key part of the new Texas abortion law, RH Reality Check writer Andrea Grimes — the genius behind the “Taco and Beer Abortion Challenge” that was an utter flop — wrote about how horrible sterile abortion clinics are. According to Grimes, they’re just too cold and intimidating. And there’s no recliners or herbal tea! In San Antonio, Whole Woman’s corporate vice president Andrea Ferrigno took me on a tour of their two-facility space: a small, purple-tinted clinic that feels like a cozy gynecologist’s office, and a fluorescent-lit surgical...

    The Swiss town that ordered Europe's last execution for witchcraft will unveil a memorial on Friday for the woman beheaded more than 200 years ago, accused of bewitching a child. Servant Anna Goeldi was denounced as a witch after her employer's eight-year-old daughter fell ill and began spitting up pins during fits of coughing, according to documents in the local archives. Authorities in Glarus, central Switzerland, became convinced Goeldi was a witch after she later appeared to cure the child using supernatural powers.

    Papua New Guinea must do more to protect women from anti-sorcery attacks, and conduct fair trials for those accused of attacking suspected witches.The United Nations issued an appeal to Papua New Guinea to take further action to prevent attacks on women accused of sorcery. The U.N. and human rights groups have charged that Papua New Guinea hasn't done enough to protect women -- and occasionally men -- from being attacked. In parts of the country, sorcerers are believed to be responsible for some mystery illnesses and deaths. In February 2013, a 20-year-old woman was burned to death after being accused...

    When I commenced my field study of witchcraft accusation in the Northern Region of Ghana in December 2012, I had so many goals.

Alleged witches in Ghana's Northern region are subjected to this process before they are allowed to settle in six of the seven witch camps. The ritual is performed by the Tindana. The Tindana are the earth priests or priestesses who oversee the 'old ladies area'- as the witch...

Suspicion gradually centered on Jofi Joseph, the point man on nuclear nonproliferation at the National Security Council. So at a meeting in which everyone was in on the scam an inaccurate but innocuous news tidbit was revealed. When Joseph used his anonymous Twitter handle #natlsecwonk to broadcast the tidbit he was caught and promptly fired. He was not fired for revealing any secrets, but for making disparaging comments about thin-skinned administration players ranging...

    It remains unclear whether President Barack Obama's lies about attacks on U.S. embassies will cost him re-election. One thing is certain, however: whatever ambitions Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once held to run for president in 2016 have been damaged beyond repair. Obama was literally asleep when the proverbial "3 a.m. call" came, but Clinton--who bears responsibility for embassy security--was asleep on the job for weeks. Clinton's response--"How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?--bears the same naïveté for which she once mocked her Democratic rival in debates and campaign...

The ironic line was one of the few references the Democratic senator made to the political firestorm that erupted after her opponent, U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, used the term "legitimate rape" during a TV interview Sunday. Rather than beat Mr. Akin over the head, Ms. McCaskill appears to have decided to let the wrecking ball he set in motion swing all by itself.

    The Salem witch tragedy of 1692 took less than two years to play out. Yet 300 years later, explanations for how and why it happened are still coming. One theory recently gaining exposure thanks to bloggers comes from a 2004 college thesis that places the blame on something we think of as a strictly modern phenomenon: climate change. Proposed in a Harvard thesis, the paper by economist Emily Oster has earned attention due to the modern swirl of controversy surrounding the possibility that human interaction has altered world temperatures. Currently an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, Oster linked...

    Between the coven on True Blood and The CW's upcoming teen witch drama, The Secret Circle, don't we have enough witches on TV? CBS thinks not. The network has ordered a script for a remake of the classic TV comedy Bewitched, Variety reports. The recent success of certain reboots such as CBS' Hawaii Five-0 continues to keep networks and studios interested in the remake biz, despite poor box-office numbers or viewer backlash. ABC is reimagining Charlie's Angels for the coming fall season.

    Animal welfare workers were contacted by a Kagiso resident traumatized by the incident, in which a vervet monkey was beaten, pelted with stones, shot at and burned to death. Animal welfare groups in South Africa have condemned the “barbaric” killing of a vervet monkey by a mob of township residents who said it was a talking witch. The monkey was beaten, pelted with stones, shot at and then doused with gas and burned to death in Kagiso near Johannesburg, by residents chanting “Kill that witch!”, reports South Africa’s Star newspaper. The vervet monkey had reportedly wandered into the township after...

    MOGOSOIA, Romania – Solace for world leaders trying to enforce painful austerity measures: At least you're not running Romania. Angry witches are using cat excrement and dead dogs to cast spells on the president and government who are forcing them to pay taxes. Also in the eye of the taxman are fortune tellers, who should have seen it coming. And President Traian Basescu isn't laughing it off. In a country where superstition is mainstream, the president and his aides wear purple on Thursdays, allegedly to ward off evil spirits. Witches from Romania's eastern and western regions will descend to the...

    Another "slow news day" fake news story about Christine O'Donnell was generated from a non-event on Wednesday, December 30. What do journalists do when there isn't any news? MAKE IT UP! The Associated Press reported that a single person was interviewed in the routine handling of the September 21, 2010 complaint by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). That is exactly what is expected, nothing new, and does not indicate that anything new has happened. In response to a September 2010, complaints by the left-wing Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (C.R.E.W.) and Delaware Republican Chair Tom...

    Here is an exclusive video that airs during Huckabee’s interview with Joe Miller, which Miller readily condemns as outrageous. A federal contractor is telling his employees to vote for Murkowski because she is already on the appropriations subcommittee which of course sends a lot of money to Alaska. He says her opponents will likely not get on that same appropriations subcommittee and thats why they should vote for her. Considering these are federal contractors, I would assume the end result is that he is inferring that their jobs could be at stake if they don’t get funding. Just a guess...
