The Komen foundation defunded Planned Parenthood, not for any reason aside from a premeditated political one. At the present time women are faced with having to go through government rape via sonogram before having an abortion, possibly from their rapist.
The Virginia State Legislature just joined Texas, Oklahoma and Iowa in passing two of the country’s most restrictive abortion bills, giving women less of a voice and the government dominance over a woman’s body.
The Personhood bill as well as mandating an intrusive mandatory vaginal probe for women seeking abortions has just passed– a better suited for the bill would be, rape by Government.
A rape victim would hardly allow herself to be victimized again by having a stranger probe her with foreign objects, as well as their hands. These unnecessary bills are intrusive and unnecessary as well as no regard whatsoever for women. States are now forcing women to have their rapists babies.
If sincere, Republicans would listen to a rape survivor and determine her thoughts, and since that will never manifest, watch this video from 2010 when the bill was first introduced, then you tell me why Republicans are allowed to impose their moral values onto this woman’s life, as well as so many others.
And now it’s 2012 and Republicans want to dictate our birth control methods too.
