A New Legislative Season Means A New Offensive in the GOP's War On Women
A Republican lawmaker in New Mexico introduced a bill on Wednesday that would legally require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a sexual assault trial.
House Bill 206, introduced by state Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R), would charge a rape victim who ended her pregnancy with a third-degree felony for “tampering with evidence.”
So that's a new standard in barbarity, even for the GOP.
This is of course after the last two years saw a record number of abortion measures
in the states; the loss of the VAWA, which the VP is trying to get re-enacted; a continuing denial of the pay disparity that led to the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act; and numerous other offenses. I imagine there's significant griping about the women in combat decision from elected officials, though so far I've only seen the Family Research Council's protests.
So here's a thread to document the GOP's war on women. Again. Some more.
Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.
