Some of you may remember me saying this to cut:
Now, if only the members of your party would get their heads out of their asses and stop putting their feet in their mouths, then maybe the GOP might be able to siphon some of the more fiscally conservative people who refuse to vote Republican because they think they're a bunch of cavemen.
But it won't happen. I can guarantee you, like clockwork, at least one GOP politician will say something stupid about either LGBT issues or rape/abortion THIS WEEK.
Aaaaaand what do you know...and it's a woman
this time that apparently doesn't even know how her own body works.
Texas Abortion Law Closer to Passing Even After Absurd Rape Comment
"In the emergency room they have what's called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out. The woman had five months to make that decision, at this point we are looking at a baby that is very far along in its development."
- Jodie Laubenberg (R)
Just another example of a culture of ignorance that shuns science, technology and knowledge. And to think, this woman was once Chair of the Texas House Public Health Committee. And most of you still probably think prerequisites for committee positions are a bad idea.
And still another issue here is the constant chorus of conservatives (like Beavis) saying "Roe v. Wade isn't going anywhere, you don't need to worry about losing your precious abortions" and yet here they are, passing laws like this that ban abortions after 20 weeks. Even if (when) the Supreme Court strikes it down, it will at the very least come out as a colossal waste of taxpayer time and money.
So much for fiscal conservatism.
