Even though they're the moral majority, Republicans love to pretend that the vagina doesn't exist.

This past week, Michigan lawmakers - mostly Republican - passed a law that will now force women to purchase a separate healthcare plan for abortions. What makes this law so stupid is that under it, women who were raped will now have to have this plan to cover for their abortions.

In other words, if a woman walks down a dark street one night alone and she is strangled and raped, and she gets pregnant with the rapist's baby, she's beyond screwed.

But anything to please the right wingers who love to cry that God sent the rapist to the woman because he wanted another soul to roam the world, even though that kid will grow up screwed up himself. If the mother chooses to keep the baby alive, she could raise it on her own and live on a crap budget or she could put it up for adoption and even that's a crap shoot. Sometimes, the baby ends up in a loving, caring home or it ends up in a world of abuse and ends up on the streets.

State Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D), a rape victim herself, told the senate that the law is nothing more that a citizen's group's dream come true and that it tells women to buy this policy because they're going to get raped. Even the state's Republican governor, Rick Snyder vetoed a similar bill earlier because he felt that a woman shouldn't pay for coverage only because of her rape.

Right-to-Life of Michigan collected 300,000 signatures to sponsor the bill. Because it unanimously passed the senate and house, it doesn't need Snyder's signature to become law.

Ya know, I'll betcha that most of those signatures are those of men and wealthy assholes who can't get their feet into lesser peoples' shoes. They don't give a damn about the woman; if the baby's hurt, it makes Jesus cry. But when that child has to live in poverty because of the mother being forced to work three jobs to put food on the table and risk being shot at school because of our lax gun laws, yep, it only makes me happy to be a Democrat.

Man, I can't wait til 2014....
