Corrupt Politics: Idaho Rejects Rape Exception In Abortion Bill Because ‘The Hand Of The Almighty’ Was At Work ›

strikematchlightfiyah | stfuconservatives | corruptpolitics:

Marching in step with the GOP’s nationwide war on a woman’s right to choose, the Idaho legislature gave final approval to a bill that would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks. Modeled after Nebraska’s first-in-the-nation measure, the bill — like the one passed in Kansas

State Rep. Brent Crane, the bill’s sponsor, took it a step further. Believing that “tragic, horrific” acts of rape or incest are the “hand of the Almighty,” Crane said women should trust God to turn the consequences of their sexual assault into “wonderful examples”.”


Hear that, uterus owners? Sure, you could have a right to bodily autonomy and not enduring the pain, suffering, expense, and invasion of privacy that a pregnancy entails, but this man thinks you could be a WONDERFUL EXAMPLE instead! Why trust women when we can trust his God, amirite?

Rape is the touch of “the Almighty.”

I could just fucking cry.
