Repubs Show Commitment to Jobs Creation by Redefining *Rape* for Abortion Funding Purposes
Jobs, schmobs, American public. The Republicans have a much more important agenda and now that they’ve (in their minds) repealed health care reform it’s time to move to the next highest priority on their list. Redefining rape for purposes of federal abortion funding !
And, no, they’re not making it more liberal. No, INDEEDY! Citing the high priority of this issue, the Rethugs have introduced the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” with 173 sponsors. Mainly, duh, Republicans.
But we already have laws preventing federal funds from being used for abortions, you say. With exceptions for rape, incest and health of the mother, of course. Silly reader! We have laws preventing federal funds from being used for abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and health of the mother but U R DEFINING RAPE AND INCEST RONG!!!
Contrary to what you thought you believed dear readers, rape is not rape unless it’s forcible rape! And incest is not incest unless u r under 18! All others need not apply. Note especially that statutory rape is not really, truly rape (unless, of course, it’s your uncle doing you). Neither, for that matter is date rape, rape of a drunk or drugged person or, best of all, rape of women with “limited mental capacity”. He didn’t rough you up and break your nose? Sorry, sister slut! Carry that baby to term.
The proposed law has other odious provisions such as not allowing for non-sanctioned abortions-due-to-rape to be paid for from HSA’s! Or deducted on your tax return! Yay! We’re well on our way back to the days of keepin’ em barefoot and pregnant with this here Republican Congress, thanks to, well, you know who y’are.
