Anti-abortion bill’s intent was to help rape victims, Democratic co-sponsor says

Remove Rep. Daniel Lipinski from office,  Recall him, run some one against him, sit the election out and let his opponent win.  This woman hater does not belong in office.

What a misogynistic pile of horseshit.  We need a left wing version of the Tea Party to rid the party of dickwads like this one.

I so want this scum sucking piece of shit to know what it feels like to be raped.

Even then he wouldn’t know what it is like to be forced to bear a monster child of a rapist.

A bill that would redefine rape was not meant to end federal funding allocations for women that sought to terminate pregnancies due to rape, a Democratic congressman said recently.

“The language of HR 3 was not intended to change existing law regarding taxpayer funding for abortion in cases of rape, nor is it expected that it would do so,” Rep. Daniel Lipinski of Illinois said in a statement to Talking Points Memo Saturday.

However, that could all change if the bill’s language is not clarified. Instead of keeping the 30-year-old definition of rape in federal law, the bill would modify it to “forcible rape,” thereby severely limiting the health care choices of millions of American women and their families.

In other words, rape would not be rape unless violence were involved; but the term “forcible rape” was left undefined, leading some to speculate its meaning since it is also not defined in the federal criminal code or in some state laws.

The bill largely co-sponsored by Republicans, if it becomes law, would also disallow parents of minors from paying for pregnancy termination for their daughters with tax-exempt health savings accounts. Also, the cost of the private health insurance that covered the treatment would not be able to be deducted as a medical expense for tax purposes.
