Stephen Colbert: Telling It Like It Is

By Claire, Communication Intern

This has been traveling around the feminist blogosphere for a couple days.  It is genius.  Stephen Colbert covering the extreme assumptions of anti-choice politicians and commentators in response to the Department of Health and Human Services accepting the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations to cover birth control, breast pumps and other necessary health services for women.

If anyone can drive home the idea that these people are seriously overreacting with their doomsday prophecies, it’s Stephen Colbert.

And if anyone can make themselves look both ignorant and insensitive by comparing breast pumps and domestic violence counseling to manicures and pedicures, it’s that unnamed female FOX commentator.
