There's ire. Oh yes, there's ire.
Evidently those "Evil Republicans" -said with deep eye roll and big sarcastic voice." are at it again. This time going after women's rights with a hatchet...um, I mean, a pen.
The following words have caused a tidal wave of wrath throughout the nation...and I quote,
"‘SEC. 309. TREATMENT OF ABORTIONS RELATED TO RAPE, INCEST, OR PRESERVING THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER.
‘The limitations established in sections 301, 302, 303, and 304 shall not apply to an abortion-
‘(1) if the pregnancy occurred because the pregnant female was the subject of an act of forcible rape or, if a minor, an act of incest;
‘(2) in the case where the pregnant female suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would, as certified by a physician, place the pregnant female in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself."
Or, to paraphrase, Tax dollars WILL PROVIDE abortions to victims of rape, incest, or those women will die if they don't receive the procedure.
Is it the word forcible? because the very definition of the word rape includes the word. I'll give you a linky for the bill in a quick minute.

it's my understanding that their definition of "forcible" does not include duress, coercion or cases where a woman is drugged, and yes, I have a problem with that.

It is ignorant questions like this one full of lies and twists that make people think that,
Auto, the actual defination of forcible rape is not changng. That is set by the URC. It still includes all the same elements. It is specifying more clearly what abortions will still be funded.
