abortions and rape

‘A Republican state senator in South Carolina is filibustering a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy because he opposes the bill’s exceptions for rape and incest victims and suggests that women will lie and say they were raped in order to get the procedure’.

‘South Carolina State Sen. Lee Bright (R) started his filibuster on the Senate floor Thursday, postponing the vote on the abortion bill as well as another bill that would repair the state’s roads. He argued before his colleagues that rape is not a good enough excuse to exempt women from the abortion ban’.

“We’re not talking about a woman that was assaulted that goes into the emergency room — which, I would argue, that child still has a right,” Bright said. “We’re talking about somebody that had 20 weeks.”

‘Bright said he worried that women would falsely claim they were raped in order to qualify for the exemption’.

“After 20 weeks if you wanted to get an abortion you could go and say you were raped and you could have the abortion,” he said. “You wouldn’t be denied. There’s no police report.”

‘In 2012, Bright said women were “exterminating kids like bugs.”

‘We didn’t know that fetuses are “kids” but thanks for schooling us women folk’.
