* FDA adds warnings to the Yaz birth control pill about increased blood clot risks.

* Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker quietly signs four bills about women’s health care and sex education (not positive bills, needless to say).

* New CDC data show sex ed is becoming less prevalent in grades 6 through 12.

* Why it’s so hard to get child porn removed from Wikipedia.
