Alabama lawmaker demolishes GOP colleagues for draconian abortion law: 'We raped women last night'

“I think that we raped women last night,” Singleton said. “We made the women of Alabama the model of the new Roe-versus-Wade. I think this is a horrible bill. Hopefully, if it gets to that level to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court will not select this as a test case.”

Singleton then tore into Republican lawmakers who had signaled that they would support granting exceptions to the abortion ban for rape or incest — only to back down when the time came to vote.

“Before I left last Thursday, there were at least twelve Republicans who had mentioned that their wives or their sisters or their daughters had said to them… don’t go down there and vote for that bill,” he said. “Something went wrong over the weekend that members got lobbied or whatever happened and only four of those Republicans stood with us.”

1. There are several states that I wish would secede from the Union.

Alabama is at the top of the list.
