Unborn Caucus Scores Big on GOP Platform

Unborn Caucus Scores on GOP Platform

Acting on the medical advice of Todd Akin’s gynecologist, the Republican National Committee platform panel added a plank outlawing abortion, even in cases of incest, medical necessity, or “legitimate rape.”

You’d think Republicans would be busy crafting meaningful measures to fix the economy they broke instead of reviving the delusional policies they used to destroy it during the Bush administration. Yet here they are, a week before the GOP Convention, getting between women and their doctors instead. Why? The subversive influence of the Zygote Liberation Front, a Tea Party splinter group, which penetrated the GOP platform committee like an intrustive Virginia ultrasound probe.

The man who will have to run on that Republican platform, ex-financier Mitt Romney, was a  pro-choice defender of women’s health rights during his single term in elected office. That was when he was Massachusetts Governor and created Romneycare, the successful health insurance program that’s the model for the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”), individual mandate and all. And Romneycare covers abortions.

UPDATES:

“New Republican platform banning ALL abortions could also restrict IVF… which three of Romney’s sons have used to conceive,” Toby Harnden, Daily Mail

“Other Things Missouri Representative Todd Akin Believes To Be True About The Uterus, Besides Its Ability To “Shut Down” A Legitimate Rape,” Mallory Ortberg, The Awl
