"The vast majority of our work is basic pregnancy prevention, basic health visits, cancer screenings in particular."
-- Susan Yolen, of Planned Parenthood Southern New England, on the Feb. 19 House of Representatives' approval on a continuing budget resolution that zeroes out funding for Title X, the decades-old federal family planning program and an amendment that cuts all federal funding to Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Interview with Chris Toensing, editor of Middle East Report, conducted by Scott Harris
Since the eruption of militant protests which overthrew Tunisia's dictator in mid-January, uprisings have spread across the Middle East and North Africa. After the unexpected fall of staunch U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, other autocratic regimes in the region are being challenged by their people in the streets like never before. Anti-government protests have been quickly organized in a diverse group of nations including, Bahrain, Yemen, Algeria, Morocco, Iran, Djibouti, Jordan, Kuwait, Sudan and Syria. The embattled monarchy in Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, initially cracked down on protesters, but in recent days, the police and the army have pulled back and the royal family has offered some concessions.

Interview with Michael Zweig, director of the Center for the Study of Working Class Life at the State University of New York, conducted by Scott Harris
With a slow recovery from the nation's worst recession since the Great Depression, shrinking revenue and federal stimulus money running out, many state governments are struggling to balance their budgets. Some Republican governors are now exploiting the economic shortfall to demand deep cuts in the wages and benefits of state employees, with a few directly attempting to undercut the very power and legitimacy of labor unions.

Interview with Susan Yolen, vice president of Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
After an all-night session on Feb. 19, the House of Representatives passed a continuing budget resolution that zeroes out Title X, the decades-old federal family planning program -- and an amendment to the resolution that cuts all federal funding to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Planned Parenthood, which runs 800 health centers around the country, provides a wide spectrum of services addressing women's health. Indiana Republican Rep. Mike Pence, who sponsored the Planned Parenthood amendment, called the vote "a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life," because he stated, Planned Parenthood provides abortions. But women seeking abortions constitute just ten percent of Planned Parenthood's patients in most states, while the vast majority of women go to the group's clinics for pregnancy prevention and basic health care.
