http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/07/05/pregnant-child-chile/2493643/ is the story of what a nation in which all abortions are illegal looks like: a pre-teen, sexually abused for two years by her mother’s boyfriend, is now pregnant as a result of rape. She is in great danger if she carries the pregnancy to term. Her fetus is also at high risk.

But she cannot have an abortion, no matter the horrific circumstances. Even though she and her baby will most likely die, the government’s complete and total abortion ban mandates that she have her rapist’s child, even if it kills her (literally).

You might say, “how horrible” or words to that effect. You might say, “those barbaric Chileans” as well. But if you voted for any Republican in recent years, then you, yes YOU, supported exactly that policy. The same one. Read their platform: http://www.gop.com/2012-republican-platform_home/

“Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

The wording of the Republican platform essentially calls for the nullification of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that effectively legalized a woman’s right to have an abortion, Roe v. Wade.

That is to say, the exact same law they have in Chile, where a tween rape victim is being forced by the Big Brother government to have a baby that was violently implanted into her without her consent. This, friends, is what abortion bans do: they kill people. There is nothing Pro-Life about abortion bans.

If you cast a vote for a Republican, any Republican, you have supported a policy that would force rape victims to suffer and perhaps die from bearing their rapists’ children.

Here’s hoping Hell is as bad as the Fundie preachers say it is, and that our elected “Republicans” wind up there. Because anyone who really thinks that little children should die by governmental edict, as a result of crimes committed against them, truly does deserve to burn in Hell alongside the rapists themselves. Birds of a feather.
