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.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky would like to make one thing plain at the outset: all Republicans oppose the right of a woman to make her own choices about health care. Every single Repub of every single variety is anti-choice, no exceptions. Some might claim to feel otherwise, but they elect “representatives” to office (and platform committee members, delegates and such) who uniformly oppose birth control and other vital health services, and further state that the best gynecological advice comes from a wealthy, white, elderly male fundagelical legislator with no knowledge of medicine or even basic science. By so acting and thus choosing, the modern Republicans expose their true attitudes. 

The liars that really hack this blogger off are Repub females who claim to be pro-choice. What a complete and utter load of mule muffins: all Republican women are effectively anti-choice, because they fund and support the Republican party, which is dedicated to destroying their reproductive and other health-care rights. If they truly were pro-choice, they could not in good conscience (or even in self-interest) support the Republican Party.

Kind of like being Black Klansmen or Jewish Nazis: regardless of their personal interests, they support a party that seeks at best to diminish their rights and legal standing within society. At worst, well, let’s not even go there.

The only difference between the average Repub and Todd Akin is one of honesty. Give Akin his due: the man may be an antediluvian, misogynistic, hateful, willfully ignorant luddite mother***er, but he came out and said what Ryan, Romney, Boehner, and the Platform Committee also think but don’t have the nuts to say out loud.

“Pro-Choice Republicans” – not just the LSoSoTW, but an oxymoron as well. Wear your Crown O’ Polished Turds with pride.
