Somewhere, Justice Coat Hangers Is Smiling

GOP Coat hangers

The fetus-fondling gawd botherers see their opportunity and are making their moves:

Both the Florida and West Virginia bills would prohibit abortions after 15 weeks except in a medical emergency or in the case of a severe fetal abnormality. Neither would provide exceptions for victims of rape or incest.

If the bill passes, any private citizen can bring a civil suit against a physician who performs an abortion after the six-week point, or against anyone who helps a pregnant person get an abortion, which includes “paying for or reimbursing the cost of an abortion,” according to the bill text. If a person in Arizona successfully sues under H.B. 2483, they could receive a bounty of at least $10,000 and have all of their legal fees paid for by the opposing side.

Arizona’s H.B. 2483 does not make exceptions for abortion in cases of rape or incest, but the bill’s authors note that an abuser who impregnates their victim “through an act of sexual assault or incest” is prohibited from bringing civil action.

So someone can still rape their daughter, just not make a cool $10K Ameros off of it.
