Tomorrow's headline: That New Mexico Republican who wanted to make rape victims felons if they had an abortion would like you to know she's interested in "clarifying" her language AGAIN because now all the "Small government" teabaggers are threatening to primary her out in favor of an armadillo that goes into "terror ball mode" whenever it sees a person darker than a cafe latte.

david_gaithersburg: DGS: david_gaithersburg: Can you provide a link to a story about "New Mexico republicans and their attempt to punish rape victims"? I'm reading a story about so-called-progressives manufacturing outrage over Republicans trying to punish the abusers of rape victims.

/Why are you pro rape?

True or false. If this bill was made into law, a woman that sought an abortion after being raped would be potentially hit with a third degree felony charge.

/heh, no, I don't actually expect you to answer. You just want people to play defense while you make absurd accusations.
//why are you pro government control?

.
I'm not a so-called-progressive, so chances are I'm not an attorney. It was a draft bill, the language is being revised. Even after the revision there is still fake outrage.

Brubold: Keizer_Ghidorah: Brubold: So she writes a bill that will prosecute rapists who try to make their victims get an abortion to cover up the crime. Some people make the debatable claim the language in the bill is too broad and could cause the victims to be prosecuted. She says she'll clarify it to make sure that doesn't happen and somehow the liberals are upset at this?

The (D)erp brigade strikes again.

Why would she need to make a law that ALREADY EXISTS? It's back-door abortion blocking, pure and simple.

Oh good grief. No it isn't. She was trying to do a good thing. A rare accomplishment from a member of our government. She's not in the same category as the GOP morons who want to tell us all about how women's bodies react to rape and how great rape babies are. The reaction to what this woman was trying to do is (D)erp. Plain and simple.


I agree with brubold. We need more laws to make sure that things that are already illegal are extra illegal. More, redundant laws are always good. stupid Dimocrats.

I'm 100% with you on this. I'm not even sure if this is an issue worthy of the title of partisan. It's not everyday you actually get to cross the path of a ragin' democrat so you gotta make hay when the opportunity arises. The only reason the partisan point even grew wings is that this bill was initiated by a republican as opposed to a democrat senator, and you know where that's going lead you in the non-partisan land of Farkinstan.

Mugato: Weaver95: I really don't understand this bizarre obsession the pro-life crowd has with punishing rape victims. being forced to carry the product of rape full term has to be pretty damaging, not just mentally but financially.

I'm pro-choice (meaning I don't really care but I don't think a woman should be made to have a kid she doesn't want) but if you're a religious fanatic who believes that life begins when the guy nuts inside a woman and that all life is sacred (none of them believe that one), believing that a woman should carry a rape baby is at least internally consistent with their twisted viewpoint. It's not the kid's fault what the terms were under which he was conceived.

If this sounds like I'm supporting pro-life people, I'm not, I'm just saying forcing the woman to keep the rape baby is consistent with what they claim to believe. I hope that came across correctly.


Yeah, and I agree it's consistent. Still very wrong though. Ordered evil instead of chaotic evil.

If a conservative told me the sky was blue, I'd walk outside, verify that indeed it was the case, and carry on. You see, that's the difference between conservatives and, well, anyone else. We're more than happy to verify if something is true, and if it is, move on. The problem is that conservatives get proven wrong, then doggedly insist that the evidence is a Photoshop, that Obama isn't a citizen, that global warming isn't happening, that the Founding Fathers had zero intention of this being a "Christian nation", etc etc etc.
By the way, on that last bit, if you take the time to go to the Library of Congress and read some of the letters from Madison, Jefferson and others who signed the Constitution, you'll find my statement to be abundantly correct.

You're right. I think they should clarify their stance on rape and rape babies. They should speak at great length, in fact, about rape. They should be sure to use the word rape more often so that their true arguments about rape can be more easily found by internet searches for rape.

Nice! I ask you what it is you even mean and you're already positioning me! Thanks! I see I have you correctly marked as 'Derpy'.

For the record, the bill is atrocious. I believe in consent. Not 'no means no' but 'yes means yes' and not otherwise.

To say this is manufactured outrage is to try and undermine what this bill would have potentially done, and you're absurd with your intended minimization. Shocking, I tell you, just shocking. :|

I really don't understand this bizarre obsession the pro-life crowd has with punishing rape victims.  being forced to carry the product of rape full term has to be pretty damaging, not just mentally but financially.  look - I get the 'whole life is sacred' thing, I really do.  But here's the deal....if you want to force a woman to carry a rape baby full term, then do the following:

1. pay the rape victims medical costs.  ALL of 'em.  from psych counseling to pre-natal care up through medical expenses incurred during and immediately after giving birth.
2. help put the kid up for adoption, even if the kid is 'special needs' or has medical issues.  you wanted 'em born, you pay for 'em.
3. make it a law that rape victims *cannot* be fired under any circumstances while carrying the rape baby to term, oh and you are going to give their significant other (or person they designate) the same level of protection.  they'll need support, and you are going to damn well make sure they get it.
4. if they decide to keep the rape baby, then you pay the woman a stipend over and above food stamps that you WILL make sure she gets...this was about as unplanned a pregnancy as unplanned can get and you WILL make sure to help her with all her unexpected/unplanned for expenses during her first year with her new child.
5. her rapist pays child support.  yes, I realize that's probably something like...20 cents or something...but it's the thought that counts.

do ALL of the above, and i'll believe you give a damn about the rape victim.  Don't do it, or weasel dick your way out of it, and I'll know you're a religious moron who hasn't thought the issue through.

Just like Militant Islam is bad for all Muslims, rabid "conservatism" (ie anti-abortion in all cases, pro NRA in all cases, anti-environment, anti-science, anti-gay) is bad for everyone who wants smaller government and more individual freedoms.

Face it GOP... your current party is made up predominantly of fascists and Dominionists. For every rational "fiscal" conservative there are 2 ignorant farksticks like this woman who are making you all look bad. Plus, they are noisy, making the problem worse. You can blame the "liberal" media all you want, but look in the mirror. It's you that keep voting these lunatics into office.

I'm sure as hell not voting for anyone I've seen recently who has an R after their name. It isn't just an image problem, it's the fact that for the most part your party is so farking wrong about so many different subjects. Most of these areas really aren't even up for debate... there is little nuance in believing rape victims should be force to carry to term their "gift from God". It is just wrong, period.
