Drugged, Raped, and Pregnant? Too bad -- Republicans are Pushing to Limit Rape and Incest Cases Eligible for Government Abortion Funding
Rape is only really rape if it involves force, according to the new House Republican majority as it now moves to change abortion law.
For years, federal laws restricting the use of government funds to pay for abortions have included exemptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, with another exemption covering pregnancies that could endanger the life of the mother.
But the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," contains a provision that would rewrite the rules to drastically limit the definition of rape and incest in these cases. The bill, with 173 mostly Republican co-sponsors, has been dubbed a top priority in the new Congress by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

I get the point about the ant-Republican bias, though. Maybe if you could presume all babies as being Republicans until proven otherwise? (Odd, but it might work.)
“I’m going to possibly take some heat here, but I go a lot further than the bill in my stance. Abortion should be banned and the only exception should be the life of the mother. Babies are innocent. They don’t choose their sperm donors. “
It is sad that rape victimes are pressured into thinking this is their “cure” as well.
That eliminating their own child will somehow help them.
Not to minimize their suffering - it is a horrible (and rare) thing to become pregnant from a rape.
Killing an innocent is horrible as well.
First, there should be absolutely no federal funding of any abortion... none,nada.
Second, I am fairly sure the “left” democrats, under the guise of Whoopie Goldberg, redefined rape.. after all, if it isn’t “Rape Rape”........
So, are they going to use the “Whoopster’s” definition and call it rape rape?
It’s not rape-rape...
Did the article get pulled? I can’t get to the story.
Went to read the article. All I got to read was this;
The page you’ve requested either does not exist or is currently unavailable.”
It IS gone. Maybe they finally got a single millisecond of shame over there.

Never mind; I googled it and got to it via Mother Jones.
Maybe it was too much, even for THEM.
I was hopin’ to read the comments section,,, if they were allowing comments.
The article is still there.
Someone actually said something like, "Of all the networks, ABC is the only fair one. We need to shut off all conservative news and radio by law!"
Ok it’s back then.
No, it’s not.
I just read it like 2 seconds ago.
And now it’s unavailable. Huh. I still have it up in another browser.
That, at least, is not news.
And I see ABC neglected to mention that the bill is co-sponsored by a Democrat.
