Crazy-ape-bonker politicians get it so horribly, horribly wrong once again.

Amid a heated debate over a restrictive anti-abortion bill being pushed by Texas GOP lawmakers, one Republican argued that a proposed exemption for rape victims was unnecessary because assaulted women could simply turn to rape kits for abortions.

"In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out," said state Rep. Jodie Laubenberg

And this from a woman??? How is it she can be so ill informed. There aren't enough palms in this world for the facepalm required here.

Closer to home for me in Australia, all the states here have approved of the drug RU486, except the state I live in. About 6 months ago a whole bunch of medical practicions said to the government that they should legalise the use of RU486, but the then (male) Health Minister said no, on the grounds that he didn't like the idea of women having abortions in the toilet.

WTF??
