Unen-forcible: The FBI’s 82-year-old rape definition still requires force to be involved.

Fetal Felony: A proposed bill gives women a 15-year sentence for having an abortion.

Say Cheese: Bill proposes giving women ultrasound pic (for free!) with abortions.

Hell No: NJ residents are outraged—outraged!—at solar panels on telephone poles.

Upward Spiral: US healthcare costs are skyrocketing; other countries not so much.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.

$400,000 to go: Please help us pick up the pace!
