Yes, you read that correctly. In Michigan, women who are raped may not have an abortion if their rapist impregnates them. UNLESS they purchased what is being called “rape insurance” ahead of time. Result: women need to plan for being raped, and pay out of pocket in case they are someday raped. Your humble correspondent feels that “rape Insurance” is the wrong term. Really, it’s a tax on people who can become pregnant.

It is a tax on fertile women, levied upon their functioning uteri. A “Uterus Tax”.This is a 100% “republican” idea, pushed only by repubs, voted for only by repubs. Repubs have successfully imposed it upon women in Michigan, and plan to spread it across the nation.

America, you just voted to give the party behind such obscene ideas even more power than they already had. You voted for it, and you are getting what you deserve. Almost all eligible voters are to blame for such travesties as these.

Perhaps you didn’t vote? By not voting against the GOPee, you helped Repubs to win.

Perhaps you voted third-party? See above.

Perhaps you voted “Republican”? You stupid f***, you truly do DESERVE this. Hope it hurts, motherf***er.

The only people who are blameless are those who voted for the candidate with the best mathematical chance to beat a Teapubbie. Every other eligible voter within the locale involved in a Repub outrage bears some measure of responsibility for the outrage in question.

This is just the first example of what America asked for during this week’s election. Look forward to years more of such revolting results. And as you are subjected to these manifold obscenities over time, remember: America voted for this. America asked for this. America demanded this. AMERICA’S VOTERS MADE THIS HAPPEN. As the Politicos like to say, “elections have conesquences”.

Maybe we’ll learn our lesson. Maybe after we get f***ed so brutally, so often, so painfully, the country will learn to ignore the propaganda, respect the facts, and get out to vote in our best interests for a damned change. Maybe.

But for the foreseeable future, we will all pay, as a nation, for the sins of the majority of actual voters.

Briefly put, Elephants from around the country are trying to control your reproductive organs. They want to control your fertility, menstrual cycles, and family planning. They want to dictate whether or not you will have children. They want access to your medical records and the rights to tell your OB/ GYN how to manage your care.

And not only do they want the right to control these aspects of your life, they are giving themselves those rights. Bit by bit, law by law, state by state.

Also, they mock you, taunt you and ridicule you with the consequences of your votes:

You gave them the rope with which they will “hang” your liberty and pursuit of happiness. Why SHOULDN’T they make fun of you? For decades, the Repubs have been straight up and out front with their intentions for American women. And American women vote for them anyway.

Finally, notice one more thing: with all of these laws controlling you and your bodies, they are not, repeat NOT, passing similar legislation to control men and our bodies. That is not a coincidence.

And you vote for these “Republicans”, WHY? For God’s sake, stop while you still have any rights remaining to you.

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.
