That sound was the sledgehammer:
This morning, the anti-choice leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives decided to modify a provision in the "Stupak on Steroids" agenda that would redefine what constitutes rape.

At the same time, these anti-choice politicians opened a new attack on women's health. They added a new provision to H.R. 358, which was introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania. The new H.R. 358 would allow hospitals to refuse to provide abortion care even when it's necessary to save a woman's life!
There really are no words that would accurately describe how utterly heinous, how unspeakably vile that is. Truly a horror show in the House of Representatives.
