Dem. Slaughter: Rape “Not so bad” to Republicans

Here’s the story:
A leader of the House Pro-Choice Caucus suggested Tuesday that Republicans don’t have strong feelings against rape.
The remark came as Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) criticized the GOP’s proposed ban on late-term abortions ahead of a House vote on the measure.
Slaughter slammed Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee, all men, who rejected a rape exception to the bill during its markup last week.
“I’m of the opinion now … that if you really were to question all of them, that there is a sort of continuity of thought that rape is really not so bad and that the likelihood of getting pregnant is small,” Slaughter told a press conference.
Vote fraud isn’t so bad for Democrats, so I guess it’s even.
