Another Day, Another GOP Rape Comment

June 13, 2013 http://www.usnews.com

Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., is the latest Republican to step in it regarding the issue of rape. On Thursday, the House Judiciary Committee, which is dominated by Republicans, voted to support legislation that would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. When a reporter asked him why his proposal did not make exceptions for rape and incest, the representative said that the probability of a pregnancy resulting from rape was "very low."

But Franks is not the only current Republican member of Congress who has continued to talk out of turn about rape since the election. A few weeks ago, during a debate on sexual harassment in the armed forces, Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia used the "boys will be boys" defense of rape and harassment in the military. Chambliss claimed that attacks against women by military men were caused by the "hormone level created by nature."

Yeah, that bullshit bill will not pass in the senate and will be vetoed if it reaches Obama's desk.

It's cool that they're wasting their time on this when, you know, people need jobs and shit.
