The laws that are being passed, being suggested, and being rewritten by the GOP all over this country are enough to make any woman’s flesh crawl. But over and over again, GOP lawmakers continue to top each other by showing off their utter lack of respect, trust, or even concern for women.
One of the latest such outrages is from Idaho State Senator Chuck Windor.
By the terms of his mandatory ultrasound bill, women seeking an abortion would first have to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound at a crisis pregnancy center (an organization dedicated to shaming women out of abortions in the first place) before being given a list of providers who could perform an abortion.
As the typical arguments followed, Windor cut off the debate about rape victims having to follow these rules. How? He suggested that women don’t know the difference between rape and consensual sex, and then followed that by saying that women would LIE about having been raped in order to access an abortion less intrusively.
So not only are women so dumb we can’t tell whether we were raped, but he acknowledges that this bill is so draconian and offensive that women would resort to extreme measures to get around it. And that, according to Windor, is a good thing.
…what self respecting woman VOTES for this kind of monster?
