Women raped in Idaho can forget about abortions… it’s God’s will.

The Idaho House has passed legislation already approved by their Senate which bans abortions even in the case of rape.

God's Agent in Idaho

The bill’s House sponsor, state Rep. Brent Crane, R-Nampa, told legislators that the “hand of the Almighty” was at work. “His ways are higher than our ways.”

12 states are now considering similar legislation.

This clip is from PoliticsUSA… go in and read the whole thing (and try not to vomit).

You probably remember Nevada Republican Sharron Angle’s rape lemonade. Angle claimed that “two wrongs don’t make a right” and insisted that she told young victims she had counseled to look for alternatives to abortion, “And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade.” It is Angle’s opinion that women should have no control over their reproductive systems even in cases of rape and incest because it would interfere with God’s plan.
Because nobody likes raping young girls like God, right Sharron?
Angle may have been defeated, Nevada women safe (at least temporarily) but if Idaho Republicans have their way, rape lemonade will be the only remedy to pregnancies caused by rape in that state.
The Idaho House on Tuesday passed Senate Bill 1165 on a 54-14 vote, which bans abortion after 20 weeks on grounds of fetal pain.
The only way a woman can get an abortion is if the pregnancy threatens her life or physical health. For Republicans, rape is no excuse.
Credit to them, all 13 of Idaho’s House Democrats voted against the bill. One Republican voted against it as well: Rep. Tom Trail, R-Moscow. blog it

Someone referred to the Republicans in Idaho as the “Idaho Taliban” and it’s a name that I think will stick.
