Indiana Plugs 'Abortion Loophole' For Rape Victims
This bro does not want to disparage rape and incest victims, he just wants to disparage other women, because women always be pretending they got raped so Indiana will let them have all the abortions they want. So many abortions fit through that loophole, you don't even know! Women make huge profits pretending to get raped and having as many abortions as possible.
Yesterday morning, the Indiana House considered an anti-abortion bill that “would put some of the tightest abortion restrictions in the nation into Indiana law.” Introduced by state Rep. Eric Turner (R), HB 1210 would make most abortions illegal after 20 weeks. Current law restricts abortions after the fetus is viable, generally around 24 weeks. [...]
state Rep. Gail Riecken (D) introduced an amendment to exempt “women who became pregnant due to rape or incest, or women for whom pregnancy threatens their life or could cause serious and irreversible physical harm” from being forced to carry to term. [...]
The House voted down Riecken’s amendment 42 to 54. The bill “now is eligible for a final vote in the House later this week. It then would move to the Senate, which earlier passed similar legislation aimed at abortion.”
Good. At least this story has a happy ending. [Think Progress]
