I don't know why this legislation is necessary. Don't rape victims know that their attackers' children are gifts from God? That's what Santorum told me.

Good Christian Gentlemen of means? Surely if you disagree with them you agree that the obvious first place to begin looking for error is with yourself? Or are you choosing to ally yourself with the flighty and simple women who don't understand that these laws are simply for their benefit?

Can you imagine what would happen if women were allowed to make these sensitive distinctions for themselves? Anarchy would be too kind a term.

/speaking of which, sick is too kind a term.

Women will stop at nothing to kill babies, and they must be stopped, by any means necessary.

I bet some even get pregnant just to HAVE the abortion. Think about it: clearly these women enjoy having things shoved inside of them. This must come to an end.

Well, there's always contraception for consensual sex. But really, where's the fun in that when you can pay to have a doctor pull things out of your uterus?

Unless you remember that there's an election coming up, and the electoral base couldn't give a crap. If they can't get the enthusiasm up somehow, they'll lose a lot more than the presidency.

That said, I think they're playing with the wrong fire this year. They'll get people riled up, all right - and when every woman in America shows up to vote straight-party Democrat, they'll be wishing they'd gone with English as the official language or any one of the other derps they regularly derp.

That makes sense in a way. But wouldn't they alienate a lot of independents in the general election with this tactic? It may fire up their base for primaries, but not for the big decision 2012.

War has been declared, and there's hardly any way to change the impression among a growing percentage of women that the GOP is the party of knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. It's a smart move for Democrats to keep replaying the message, but is it fair -- and is it true? What say we relax the rhetoric and see what sanity lies beneath? -- Kathleen Parker, Columbian Syndicated Columnist

Record number of states doing this, attacking contraception, pushing personhood amendments, and they still want to pretend it's all a liberal media fabrication.

Not only do they think little of women, they think little about Americans and their ability to discern bullshiat.

There's been a flurry of them in multiple states in the past couple weeks. Basically old white men who can't get laid (even with Viagra) are deciding that the women who *can* have sex should be punished for it in every way possible, from making it harder/more expensive to get birth control to accusing rape victims of being liars so they can get an abortion.

I hope this crap brings HUGE turnouts for state and local elections and these asshats are all chucked out. I'd rather have my taxes go up and have access to the proper health care I need without judgement than this.

I agree completely. It's a bit difficult arguing that the Democrat(ic) party and the 'liberal media' are waging an unfair attack on conservatives when so many states so recently are trying to influence legislation on the reproductive rights of women in a negative fashion (my opinion, of course).

They certainly will. But the gulf between factual information on far right-wing information has grown so wide that they actually think that it's just hippy liberals from Berkley who are upset with them, and the liberal media is blowing the mainstream disgust way out of proportion.

Just look at comments on a right-wing blog about how Obama doesn't have a shot in this election. They truly think that Obama is so hated by everyone that Romney or Santorum will waltz straight to the white house after this primary is over. Never mind that Romney's unfavorability rating is the highest of any presidential candidate at this point or that Obama beats Santorum in most polls by double digits. THEY hate him, so everyone else should too.

Typically, the fastest way to get a Republican not named Mitt Romney to change their position on something controversial is for it to affect them or a family member personally. Then suddenly they're a champion of the cause.

That's what I used to think. But more and more these guys just sound completely unhinged. I can see Santorum pointing at one of his daughters and screaming "Whore!" repeatedly as he throws all her belongings out onto the front lawn. I think these people have started believing their own crazy.

"falsely use rape as an excuse"

Short of an arrest/trial/conviction, the only person who knows if they've been raped is a woman. So if a woman says she was raped, you STFU and take their word for it.

I would truly love to see the Doctor/State government charged with rape if a single woman is subjected to a trans vaginal ultrasound in order to get an abortion.

You mean a state that was home to one of the most virulent and nasty right wing authoritarian white supremacists hate groups might also want to attack women's rights, and not just non-whites?

Thankfully, Oregon is done with it's legislative session, and our state Republicans can't attempt this shiat (besides them being in the minority as well).

Nice tie in. When I think of today's GOP, I think of the British at the Battle of the Somme. Does anyone seriously want morons like this running our next war?


For those who don't know the history, WWI was a clusterfark because the generals didn't understand warfare had changed. They seriously still thought wars were still fought on horseback with swords. At the Somme, the British generals sent tens of thousands of troops straight up at the German defenses, and they were slaughtered by machine guns in a matter of minutes. The generals' response was: "wow, I can't imagine why that didn't work! Let's try the same thing again."
