Update: Forcible Rape Language Removed

I drafted a post yesterday entitled: "Is Congress Really Redefining Rape?" Fortunately, numerous such posts and the discussions on Facebook and Twitter seem to have been successful. Check out this excellent post on the matter by Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway.

I still have to ask, why the new legislation when the Hyde Amendment already covers this? Head nod to PJP who, so aptly pointed out last night, that the goal is likely centered on the political campaigns of those sponsoring the bill.

(sarcasm here) How nice that they can say, "I co-sponsored a bill called 'No Tax Payer Funding for Abortion Act'."
