Making it harder to get an abortion after rape or incest is a top priority for the new Congress? To quote Back To The Future 3, "WHAT KIND OF A FUTURE DO YOU CALL THAT?"
The House GOP's Plan to Redefine Rape: With this legislation, which was introduced last week by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), Republicans propose that the rape exemption be limited to "forcible rape." This would rule out federal assistance for abortions in many rape cases, including instances of statutory rape, many of which are non-forcible. For example: If a 13-year-old girl is impregnated by a 24-year-old adult, she would no longer qualify to have Medicaid pay for an abortion. (Smith's spokesman did not respond to a call and an email requesting comment.)
