112th Congress HR.358: Let Women Die Act
The 112th Congress war against women continues. Rep. Pitts, R. PA16, of last year's Stupak-Pitts infamy is at it again. This time he's introduced the Protect Life Act, which does nothing of the kind. It would enable hospitals to deny a pregnant woman a surgical procedure to save her life. She is to be left to die. Doesn't mention where exactly she's supposed to do this dying, but die she must. This atrocity has been referred to the House Subcommittee on Health. Indeed. And a Georgia peach, Rep. Franklin, R. Cobb County, proposes changing what a woman who has been raped is called from victim to accuser. This nicely translates into calling a rapist the accused. Much more friendly. The rocks are being overturned and out from under them crawl the men who wring their hands and wail about supporting life while working hard to let women die. Again.
