Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Reproductive rights; rape culture.]

"All can agree that rape is a horrific act of violence that no one should ever undergo. But abortion after a rape robs an innocent victim of a very beautiful life."Jeanne Monahan, head of the Orwellian-named Family Research Council's Center for Human Dignity who testified today before Congress "on how mandatory contraceptive coverage is an affront to Americans' religious freedom."

Which is obviously TERRIBLE, while forcing women and other people with uteri to carry to term a pregnancy created via rape is just the decent thing to do.
