Tricksy House Republicans!

Read the story on a friend's facebook wall, and of course I thought it was exaggerating the issue. Republicans want to redefine rape to not include being drugged, statutorily, or threatened and then raped? No way!

Actually, pretty much yes. Apparently in an effort to narrow rape definitions and thus stop federal funding for abortions, House Rep Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced an act that would narrow the Hyde Amendment's definitions of rape when it comes to federal funding to exclude the following:
women who say no but do not physically fight off the perpetrator,
women who are drugged or verbally threatened and raped,
minors impregnated by adults


The language itself only allows funds in the case of forcible rape (marks are left and woman tries to fight back) or statutory only if its by incest.

Keeping it classy, there are already 173 co-sponsors from the House. But while it stands a decent chance of passing the House, it will likely die in the Senate. Much ado about nothing, but another good example of what Varus would love.

Also fun to note that I lined up a list of the cosponsors and the Tea Party caucus. 39 of the 53 members are cosponsors. Yes, I'm sure they're just fiscal conservatives, not social conservatives Smiley: rolleyes

I, always being one to try and give most people the benefit of the doubt...as well as one to assume ignorance over malice, can see how someone might vote for such a measure without complete understanding of what exactly they're voting for (especially if they tend to listen to Republican talking points on the issue). I am, however, amazed that someone could have written it...actually written those words down, and not immediately burst in to flames.

Good we don't need to be funding abortions for sluts and whores.



You go too far, Varus.

I'm all for modifying statutory rape, but removing it altogether? Well, it's as ridiculous as the rest of this.

I don't care what the excuse. The US govn should not be in the business of funding murdering babies; wherever they come from or however they're conceived. Life is life. Once you start justifying why one is more important than another then you end up with a society filled with people who don't value life or anything else outside of when they're getting their next govn check.


Justify your woman-hating, Varus. Go ahead. It must make you feel better.

He hates those whores because they're not impressed by his car and want to charge him the way they charge everyone else.

I wouldn't worry about it. Isn't there a State where you can just drop your kids off at an orphanage or something like that?

How do you reconcile that with our wars in the Middle East (or anywhere for that matter)?

Self-defense. We kill them before they can come over here and kill us; you know like on 911.


Which is why we didn't use any more diplomatic measures, as well as invaded places that were unaffiliated?
