Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), who is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat, has pulled his support for a ban on abortions after 20 weeks. Not because he has had a change of heart on banning abortion, but because the bill in question includes an exception for rape and incest. That is unacceptable.
U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Athens, on Monday night pulled his support for a measure that would ban a woman’s right to abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, highlighting a split between the foremost national anti-abortion group and its Georgia counterpart.
Language was recently added to the measure that would make exceptions for cases of rape and incest. National Right to Life recognizes those two esceptions.
But Georgia Right to Life does not.
And in case you forgot, this is the same Paul Broun who said that evolution is a “lie from the pit of hell” while standing in a room adorned with dead animals that, from a distance, could have been mistaken as some sort of Pagan ritual chamber or a scene from Dragnet.
Georgia Right to Life has refused to certify Paul Broun’s opponent, Karen Handel, as “pro-life” because she supports exceptions for rape and incest.
They may not have certified her but they’re all certifiable.
