If you’re interested in keeping up with news about the battle over sex, marriage, and abortion between religionists and secularists in America today, I’d recommend subscribing to the weekly newsletter of (After registering at the site, you need to subscribe yourself to the newsletter with the “subscribe” button at the bottom of the left-hand column.)

The newsletter consists of a listing of noteworthy news stories and opinion essays on sexual issues, each well-summarized in a paragraph. For example:

Tenn. proposes death certificate for aborted fetuses

Rep. Stacey Campfield, a Republican, said his bill would provide a way to track how many abortions are performed. He predicted it would pass in the Republican-controlled Senate but would have a hard time making it through the Democratic House. The number of abortions reported to the state Office of Vital Records is already publicly available. The office collects records _ but not death certificates _ on abortions and the deaths of fetuses after 22 weeks gestation or weighing about 1 pound. (02/14/07)

Lovely, no? (The links from the newsletter all go through the ifeminist site, perhaps as a way of circumventing censorship.)
