Even House GOP Women Could Not Abide GOP's Anti-Choice Legislation

Sahil Kapur at TPM, yesterday:
Facing a rebellion led by women in the party, House Republican leaders abruptly pulled legislation on Wednesday night to ban late-term abortion, unable to reconcile differences over language involving rape.

Instead the GOP decided to hold a vote on a measure seeking to outlaw taxpayer funding for abortion on Thursday, the day of the annual March For Life, a massive anti-abortion rally in Washington.

The original legislation would have banned abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a move polls say Americans support. The language that caused the chaos required women to report a sexual assault to the authorities in order to seek medical treatment to terminate a pregnancy.

(Bolds mine. - SB)

This is getting altogether out of hand. Is this what a majority of Americans support? Isn't sexual assault indignity enough? How much more must the government force on women?

Any woman (particularly any young woman) who votes for a Republican for Congress after this crap is utterly nuts, of the self-hating variety.
