Ronnie Polaneczky considers Pennsylvania’s proposed policy of state rape. A nugget:
The forced test has been likened to rape (why not add candlelight and Barry White, and call it date rape?). But since it’s being pushed in a bill sponsored by a gaggle of anti-choicers, the bill has been cynically dubbed “The Woman’s Right-to-Know Act.”
Indeed, a statement from one of the bill’s co-sponsors, Rep. Thomas Killion, R-Chester, suggests that a social agenda, not a woman’s “right to know,” is precisely what this bill is about. Killion told the Inquirer that he had pulled back support, even though “I’m personally pro-life and I support anything that would discourage abortion.”
In other words, House bill 1077 is not at all about a woman’s “right to know.” It’s about discouraging a woman from exercising a right that others wouldn’t choose to exercise.
It’s all about control.
The Republican Party, the party of doms.
