H.R. 3- The war on Women Continues
H.R.3: No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act
by ABL

The War on Women Continues


H.R.3 is up for vote today. It is a radical bill that goes farther than the Hyde Amendment which already prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion. Of course the GOP is lying on the House floor now, arguing that absent the passage of this bill, federal funds could be used to fund abortion. Thats a lie, but then again, the GOP is the party of lies. Lie number one? We are going to focus our efforts on jobs, jobs, jobs.

Wrong.

Since the Great Teabilly Takeover, 916 anti-abortion bills have been proposed at the state-level. Thats 916 bills in the first quarter, bills that are more radical than those proposed in the past at the state level. Four months. 916 anti-abortion bills. At the national level, the GOP House majority has not proposed any jobs agenda. No jobs agenda. Almost 1000 anti-abortion bills. No jobs agenda.

Where are the jobs? Apparently, the Teabilly-fueled GOP doesnt care. They are more concerned about regulating our uteri and ensuring that women will die or go bankrupt because they do not have access to affordable healthcare, including abortion.

Here are some facts about this abomination of a bill, starting with, perhaps, the most Holy Shit portion of the bill:

H.R. 3 Could Force Rape Victims to Prove Rape to IRS Agents

1. Barefoot and pregnant
Is what the GOP seems to want out of women. No voting rights, no choices over their own bodies-just keep them pregnant!

2. Every Central Texas Republican Congressman Voted FOR HR3
Each and every Republican congressman (supposedly) representing Central Texas voted for this pernicious legislation: Carter, McCaul, Smith, and Flores. So did Louis Gohmert. So did ron Paul.

3. of course R Paul voted for it
Because forcing a female crime victim into involuntary servitude for an unwanted pregnancy prepares her for a lucrative career in prostitution, which he voiced his support for in last night's debate.
