Is the GOP redefining rape? - The Week This legislation would exclude adult victims of incest, women who were raped while drugged or unconscious, and survivors of statutory rape.

"John Boehner's push to redefine rape" Republican abortion bill seeks to redefine rape WASHINGTON - A Republican bill seeking to permanently cut off federal funding for abortions has angered women's groups that say it alters the definition of rape, permitting coverage for the procedure only in cases in which the rape is considered "forcible." The bill, called the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act, would make permanent several provisions that have been law for years but require annual renewal by Congress. It is a top priority of Republican leaders who took control of the House after the November elections. JOBS JOBS JOBS!!!! Republicans SCREAMED leading up to the election. What is Obama doing about "JOBS JOBS JOBS"???? Wildly waving hands as if wrists were broken while running in large circles. So far, the Republican leadership has worked to keep millions from getting health care. They held the unemployed hostage as a bargaining chip to push through tax cuts for "millionaires and billionaires". And now, they are redefining rape to end many women's protections against forced pregnancy. THIS IS YOUR RIGHT WING LEADERSHIP! Once again, I ask, "Whatever happened to JOBS JOBS JOBS???? Doesn't the right hold their leadership accountable? Or they just hate Obama so much, the right wing leadership knows they can violate average Americans in any way they want and have total immunity? Sure glad it isn't about race.
