Just before the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski made a clear endorsement of marriage equality. Murkowski, a Senator since 2002, joins two other Republicans in the Senate (Rob Portman of Ohio and Mark Kirk of Illinois), in supporting the rights of gay and lesbian couples to marry.
One of the House Republicans' budget cuts that got the most attention while they were crafting their spending bill for the next six months was the elimination of all federal funding to Planned Parenthood. The organization, which provides women's health and family planning services up to and including scary abortions, was obviously a popular target for the Republicans to satisfy their base with. Go to any conservative protest, over health care reform, taxes, Mexicans, whatever, and the anti-abortion folks are always the last ones there, screaming and hollering deep into the night.
