Hot News Stories: Vice Presidential Debate Edition (10/12/12)

Debate Recap
You can find a transcript of last night’s debate here, and a video of the religion and abortion discussion here.

The Washington Post (Washington, DC)
Martha Raddatz asked Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) about how their religion informs their position on abortion. There couldn’t be a better example of the difference of the two men or their ticket than that.

Los Angeles Times (Los Angeles, CA)
Abortion, often the focus of angry disputes, was on Thursday night the subject of one of the most sober, even thoughtful, exchanges of the vice presidential debate.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Atlanta, GA)
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta has joined dozens of other religious institutions in filing lawsuits seeking to overturn the so-called birth control mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Courthouse News Service
 (Oakland, CA)

A San Francisco ordinance prohibiting false advertising at anti-abortion pregnancy services clinics withstood most of a legal challenge in federal court.

Huffington Post (USA)
Extremists on the right alienate women on abortion and the role of government. There is more to earning women’s votes than checking a box on abortion, but the Republican position costs them support as this issue is far more important to women than men.
