    If you are preggers
    It wasn't really rape.
    And all that you are doing
    Is trying to escape
    Your god-given duty
    To give some man your booty
    Whenever he should feel a hankerin'

      Take a look at what Phyllis Schlafly has to say on the matter...

      Is Phyllis really a woman?

      and the Dems need to bring this issue front and center.

      Statutory rape--meaning any intercourse involving a person who cannot give legal consent--state law varies, but sex with a person under the age of 16 or 14 is likely the law in your state.

      The crux of this crime is that an adult has taken advantage of a child.  It is not necessary to prove force.

      So: under the official GOP policy, statutory rape victims don't "qualify" for an abortion.  You tell that to the middle-class parents of a suburban 13 year-old 9th grader who was taken in by the 19 year-old kid who lives around the corner.

      These are really bad policies that these clowns want to impose on children...and their parents.
