    Is anyone else COMPLETELY sick and tired of talking about rape in the context of what type of abortions should be allowed?  Believe me, I understand all the outrage at these neanderthals and their views on women and rape, but I am concered that this debate has moved so far to the right that we are discussing what exceptions are allowed when outlawing abortion.  Here is what I want to hear politicians say:  Abortion should be allowed for women who are raped, women who are not raped, and any women who chooses not to carry a baby to term for her own particular circumstances which are none of anyone's damn business!!!'

      they can only talk about the circumstances for Medicaid-funded abortions. Wealthy women or their daughters don't have to worry. As soon as it becomes a threat to suburban women, the GOP will have really stepped in it. They are getting close to that with some of Romney's statements and Supreme Court nominees made by the next president.

      The Republicans are defunding, not defending, America.
