Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Misogyny; rape culture; war on agency.]

"I'm told that they're still going to bring [the bill proposing a 20-week abortion ban] back, but because there was such division among our Republican females [over the stipulation that rape must be reported to authorities to qualify as an exception], they pulled the bill that day. And that was extremely unfortunate, and it sent the entirely wrong message."—Republican Congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert, during a conference call with pastor E.W. Jackson today.

Females. Wow.

Divisive females who send the wrong message by standing (the most marginally possible) with survivors.

It continues to be a real mystery why Republicans aren't connecting with a majority of voting women.
