38. My how the Republicans have changed ....

Fifty years ago, when they were fighting Medicare tooth and nail, the Republican mantra was "Keep the government out of your doctor's examining room", but now, if you're a woman and you are or might be pregnant, the Republicans very much want the government right there in the doctor's room, standing right at the stirrups.

Funny thing is this solicitude only happens if abortion is, or might be, discussed. The Republicans haven't done anything to improve or expand pre-natal care for women who can't afford it. So they'll make a woman give birth - even to her rapist's baby - but they don't care if the woman or the baby are malnourished or exposed to infections, or even whether the woman has enough diapers and baby food.
