Someone, PLEASE tell me how date rape is NOT 'forcible rape'? What, just because she went out with this guy, he's allowed to rape her? HOW is being slipped a drug and raped NOT 'forcible rape'? What is this, the Middle Ages? Unfuckingbelievable!

Well, people keep voting for these assholes and if it continues we may get to revisit the middle ages. Just wait til one of their daughters gets date raped, pregnant, and finds out she can't have an abortion.

Good thing we have a Pres that would veto such fuckingnonsense.

Thought Republicans were going to focus on jobs. Was it just another lie to get elected?

Ah, the ones that aren't complete idiots are total cynics that say anything to get a vote and a contribution. The ones still calling themselves Republicans these days either just want to get rich by serving rich masters or want to use their offices to do their utmost to trash their oaths and turn the country into a theocracy, of which they wish to be the masters. Either way, date rape wasn't rape when theses fucktards were growing up, it was just boys being boys and the girls, having been used by these jags were cast in the role of loose women, both of which were means to soothe their sexual insecurities.

It's posturing on the pol's part, to 'bolster' his record of 'conservative ' legislation.
Won't pass muster, as it is discriminatory against women.

It's telling, though, that this was H.R. 3 - meaning the Republicans think this is the THIRD most important issue for the country right now.

Absolutely. John Boehner makes my skin crawl. It doesn't surprise me that he wants to doom poor women and raped women (and girls) to being unable to exercise their right to an abortion.
I wonder what the 'redefinition' of rape will do to prison sentences in the future, as well?

The only nice thing that I can say about that asshole is that I think he's laying off the spray tan lately. He's from the district just next to mine. On the one hand I'm glad I'm not in his district. On the other, I wish I could vote against him.

I wish everyone in the WORLD could vote against him. He's really repugnant.
