Mutual Exclusivity May Not Apply Here

I’m going to go out on a limb and surmise that this woman is either galaxy-class stupid or just plain evil (although I’ll also allow for equal measures of both):

A socially conservative majority dominating the Michigan House hopes to impose new regulations on abortion providers and mostly prohibit the practice after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

A House committee on Thursday advanced a three-bill package to the floor requiring abortion clinics to be licensed surgical centers, imposing new requirements for disposing of the remains of aborted fetuses and making it a crime to coerce a woman into terminating a pregnancy.

One of the bills includes a ban on late-term abortions for unborn children 20 or more weeks developed, with a narrow exception when the mother’s life is at risk, said the bill sponsor, Rep. Deb Shaughnessy, R-Charlotte.

The legislation does not allow late-term abortions in cases of rape, incest or fetal defect, such as a missing brain or spine.

That’s sick enough, but when you take notice of this fact

In the past two years, eight states with Republican legislative majorities have adopted similar bans on late-term abortions despite U.S. Supreme Court rulings upholding the practice, said Elizabeth Nash, state issues manager for the Guttmacher Institute, a New York City-based abortion rights organization that tracks state-level abortion laws.

it gives some powerful insight as to the type of people we are dealing with here.

If you put Republicans in charge again, this is what you are going to get. Ingore this at your peril.
