The TEApublican war on women is as strong as ever as House Republicans on Tuesday passed a sweeping anti-choice bill. The bill would restrict almost all abortions to the first 20 weeks after conception, trampling over the Constitution, State Laws and Roe V. Wade which forbids the state from restricting women’s access to an abortion before the fetus becomes viable. The Roe V. Wade decision defined “viable” as being “potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid”, adding that viability “is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks.”
The viability argument is based on science, which Republicans care nothing about, and the pro-choice argument is about women’s rights which the Republicans definitely care nothing about. The GOP/Tea Party’s anti-woman stance is so obvious and so bunk, they’re now trying to find ways to “make abortion funny” to get younger people to sign on to their regressive, hateful ideology.
George Carlin had it figured out, though. Here is Carlin’s destruction of the misogynistic TEA/GOP:
