New Republican Idea: Punishing Rape Victims With Jail Time

If you’re looking for evidence that the differences between men and women are greatly exaggerated, the fact that women are equally capable as men of mind-blowing misogyny should erase all doubt. New Mexico state Rep. Cathrynn Brown proved that this week by introducing a bill aimed at throwing rape victims in jail if they refuse to honor their rapist’s right to control their body by carrying his child. This sort of insult to rapists will not stand, so Brown, standing up bravely for rapists who want the suffering they’ve inflicted to carry on and on for their victims, has proposed banning abortion for rape victims on the phony grounds that it’s “tampering with evidence”.

More here...

So, she believes rape pregnancies need to be preserved so it can be used as evidence at the rape trial? Abortion as tampering with evidence? How immeasurably fucked up is that? Jaysus Christ.

1. How immeasurably fucked is this thinking? It is but a microcosm of the holistically ubiquitous

fucked up thinking of right wingers.

3. It was honestly just a matter of time before they went this far.

Maybe this is a good thing, as more and more are exposed to the utter horror that is at the base of the party mindset.

4. Let's use her logic in another situation.

She comes home to find her entire family murdered. Blood everywhere.

That house can never be cleaned and sold because it would disturb the evidence.

10. Another analogy...

I suffer a gunshot wound. It cannot be treated because healing the wound would tamper with evidence of assult.

(and if it heals on it's own, I assume that means I'm a witch. Or something.)

15. Yes, rapists as instruments of god

I wish their fantasies were true and Jesus would come back and toss them all from the temple. Their is nothing Christlike about them.

9. There's one question they ask themselves: Will it piss off liberals?

That's it, really, if something will piss off liberals then they're for it.

Sure worked this time and you can bet any portion of your anatomy you wish that she is bragging about how much this pissed off liberals, bragging to her constituents.

14. My brother uses that excuse everytime he repeats some idiotic RW meme

 

"I do it to piss off liberals"

All he accomplishes is making himself look like an idiot. Lately everything is Hitler to him.

11. The DNA material is still there after an abortion.

The authorizes can have the doctor save it for testing. Science does not need a full child for that.

So do they want to try this one again?

12. I think I get it now...

If a woman conceives as a result of rape, the child is evidence. If she convinces her rapist to at least put on a condom, that's regarded as consent. And if she fights back and injures or kills the rapist, she's a danger to society.

Lovely scheme they've worked up over the years! Let me know how it turns out, please!
