‘Some birth control methods mix better with booze. As in, you don’t have to think in the heat of the moment. Are you ready to party?” That’s the text to an ad I see multiple times a week on my Facebook News Feed.
This week Rolling Stone Magazine ran a piece that promised readers the truth about abortion. It was written by Lauren Rankin and presented as a news story. But Ms. Rankin is not an unbiased reporter. She is a graduate student who serves on the board of the New Jersey Abortion Access Association, which raises money to buy abortions for women who can’t afford them.

You know how it often is with barbecues: the “guy group” congregates together — this time we stood around the backyard with our beers — while “the wives” were inside chatting in the living room.
