Republicans wage war on women

Republicans wage war on women. Ban abortions. Close clinics. Reward abortion vigilantes. Claim rape is an 'opportunity'.

Other Republicans claim 'Legitimate rape doesn't cause pregnancy. A ProLife Republican asks his mistress to get an abortion. The hypocrisy is rich...

"The Handmaid's Tale is a novel by Margaret Atwood about subjugated women in a patriarchal society, loss of female agency and individuality, suppression of women's reproductive rights, and the various means by which women resist and attempt to gain individuality and independence." Wikipedia

Republican war on women

  • Texas’ abortion ban restricts abortion at six weeks and effectively deputizes private citizens to enforce it. -  HuffPo
  • For the past decade, anti-choice lawmakers on the state level have consistently tried to roll back abortion rights — that’s nothing new. In 2021 alone, they introduced 663 measures to restrict access to abortion care. -  Guttmacher Institute 
  • Other states have preemptively passed  trigger bans  in anticipation of Roe falling in the coming months.
  • Now, complete strangers may be able to sue anyone who “aids or abets” someone who gets an abortion past that six-week benchmark. If their lawsuits are successful, these anti-abortion vigilantes can be rewarded $10,000 in damages—plus attorney fees. (If they lose, the person who they’ve sued isn’t able to recover those fees.) Anyone in an abortion patient’s orbit could face a lawsuit: the providers, the people who help pay for the abortion, the people who drive the patient to a clinic. -  VICE

Rape is an 'opportunity'

PREGNANCY FROM RAPE IS 'OPPORTUNITY' FOR WOMEN, SAYS REPUBLICAN TRYING TO BAN ABORTION Ohio state Rep. Jean Schmidt (R) introduced her anti-abortion measure. The bill is a trigger ban that would outlaw abortions in the state if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.”  HuffPost

'Legitimate rape,' 'forcible rape,' 'honest rape': What's behind the GOP's obsession with parsing rape? - MSNBC

Hypocrisy

"A conservative Republican congressman whom conservative organizations have praised for being an anti-abortion crusader sent text messages to his married lover in January, urging her to get an abortion after believing she was pregnant, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Rep. Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania, who has a strong anti-abortion voting history, acknowledged last month he had an affair with Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist in Pittsburgh. Text messages sent between Murphy's phone number and Edwards in January show the two discussing the pregnancy scare, and Edwards pointed out Murphy's hypocrisy in pressuring her to get an abortion." - US News
