No Exceptions!

September 2, 2012

Quoting Nicholas Kristof:

“If an American woman in uniform is raped and becomes pregnant, Congress bars Tricare military insurance from paying for an abortion.

If an American woman in the Peace Corps becomes pregnant, Congress bars coverage of an abortion — and there is no explicit exception even if she is raped or her life is in danger.

When teenagers in places like Darfur, Congo or Somalia survive gang rapes, aid organizations cannot use American funds to provide an abortion.”

I’m old enough to remember deaths by coat hanger, and all the brutal ways of dying that that phrase represents. Not a good idea, to do that to people.

But it’s in the Repub Party platform.

No call for forgiveness, when you know what you do.

From → 2012 election
