Republican 2012 Platform: No Exception for Rape

Apparently, the national Republican Party is just Akin to increase the gender gap.

The Republican platform committee approved an "abortion plank" that rejects exemptions for rape, incest or even to save the life of the mother.

And you say that the phrase "the Republican war on women" is too extreme?

There's a quote making the rounds attributed to Coretta Scott King:

"If American women would increase their voting turnout by ten percent, I think we would see an end to all of the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children."

Let's hope we see that happen. The Republicans have shown themselves to be hostile to women's rights on too many fronts.
