Okay, so I live in Florida (sanctity of life)

If a woman is brutally raped, left for dead, and becomes pregnant as a result, she would be forced under the Republican plank to bring the child to term--against her will.

But if that same woman is carrying a gun and is approached by someone in a manner in which she feels 'threatened' she can cap the person, and would not be charged.

Huh?

1. Well, she'd still be charged with murder, ladies have no right

to protect themselves. I know this because it has happened before.

But in theory, yes, you do have the right to use deadly force against a born assailant. You do not have the right to protect yourself against an unborn assailant, which is what an unwanted pregnancy is, threatening a woman's health, livelihood, social support system and life.

These men seem to think that because a process is natural, it is risk free. It is not.

2. Well technically if she is not carrying a gun, she is asking for it !!

It's all God's plan. Haven't you heard. Apparently, the Republican's version of God hates women too.

4. Not really

If she is a black woman, she will be charged, prosecuted, sent to prison and her 5 kids left motherless
