Very Sneaky

I wonder if they put the “forcible rape” language in that bill as a decoy. As most people rightly pounced on that aspect of the bill, the rest of it was ignored. So they took it out, giving us the illusion of victory as they roll this crap bill through.

And it’s working. Sites such as Feministing (which I’ve really soured on anyway, but wevs) are crowing about it as a victory. Er, no it’s not. They just took out the “forcible” part. It’s still a supersized Stupak-Pitts amendment that denies health coverage to rape victims and other women.

Don’t fall for it. Keep on writing in.
