You Will Have Your Rapist’s Baby

Future Republican Representative

One of the many things that are holding up the Republicans from enacting their stupid Trickle-Down Healthcare (Motto: “we’ll all feel better when Bazillionaires get tax breaks”) is what to do with regulating ladies bits:

Republicans want to enact new tax subsidies to help people buy insurance on the exchanges [Ed., right. sure they do.–TG] — but they want to include prohibitions on abortion coverage. The House had seemed to settle the matter, when both more centrist and conservative GOP senators accepted language that follows the Hyde amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for abortion.

You see, it might not work because under the arcane rules for reconciliation (which allows the GOP to pass the damn bill) the only changes that can be accepted must be about reducing the budget deficit. Removing the Obama-era family planning requirement in the ACA doesn’t do that.

And unbelievably, we learn (emphasis mine):

“Both of these pro-life policies are essential to the bill, and must be retained all the way to final passage,” [Susan B Anthony List and the Family Research Council ] wrote. “We write to urge you to protect the policies that embrace the longstanding pro-life principle that abortion is not health care and should be neither subsidized nor promoted with public financing.

Y’all Qaeda still wants to punish The Skirts for Eve and the Apple. Those fetus-fondling gawd-botherers really know how to hold a grudge.
