Paul Ryan Once Again Sponsors the Bill That Would Make It Possible for Women's Rapists to Sue Them

Laura Beck at Jezebel reports on Paul Ryan's latest chiiling clownery.
Paul Ryan Once Again Sponsors the Bill That Would Make It Possible for Women's Rapists to Sue Them: In an unsurprising turn of events, Ryan has signed on as cosponsor to the Sanctity of Human Life Act again. The original bill — which declares that life begins with fertilization, and would give states the right to ban all abortion, even in the cases involving incest, rape, or the life of the mother — thankfully died in Congress in 2011.

But now it's baaaaack, which is scary because not only is the above terrifying, there's all sorts of other creepy shit hidden in this monster. Like, if a woman who was raped in a state that banned abortions went to a state that didn't ban abortions and had an abortion? Her rapist could theoretically sue to stop the abortion from happening, and probably win.
