    I sincerely hope these foolish women never have occasion to witness what they’ve done to others happening in someone from their family.

      If it does, they’ll just send the girl to one of those godless, abortion-having states. The goal of these loons isn’t to prevent abortions, it’s to shame women for being women. And they’ll do it to their own, you can be sure of that.

    Looks like Republicans haven’t learned from the “legitimate rape” fiasco.

    The lesson is simple: if you’re Republican, don’t talk about rape, ever. You don’t know how to do it without coming across as a complete jackass.

    Should be easy enough, but they just can’t help themselves.

    79 to 18….Probably the last 18 democrats in the state…That clearly shows what happens when democrats stay home or switch parties because of a far right wing propaganda machine.

    To social conservatives, if a woman is sexually assaulted:

    1) Boys will be boys, and you cannot go against nature.

    2) She was probably dressed scantily and therefore had it coming.

    3) It was God’s will, so give thanks for the blessed event.

    4) S**t happens, so suck it up and deal with it.

    5) No rape actually happened — the accusation is part of a feminist conspiracy to malign men

    6) Her body’s defenses will prevent her from becoming pregnant.

    7) There’s no need for “Plan B”-type contraception, because that’s what rape kits are for.

    8) What’s “rape”?

    and they will cut every funding possible to these women who have these babies, that they so believe should be born.

    Is this new development in addition to, or does it supersede the present GOP position on rape?
