‘Forcible’ rape cut from abortion bill

YAY social media, women’s orgs, and John Stewart!

Caving to pressure, today House Republicans announced that they are dropping the word “forcible” from the section of the bill about abortion that addresses rape.

It is kind of sad this is such a victory, but a victory it is. It’s pretty scary how close America just came to redefining rape.
