Divide and conquer, on steroids:
North Carolina Republican state Rep. Pat McElraft explains why she filed an extreme anti-choice bill yesterday despite the fact that her party’s leadership has said they want to focus on jobs and the economy. The bill would triple the state’s waiting period from 24 to 72 hours, require only OB-GYNs to provide abortions, and prohibit faculty at the East Carolina University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill medical schools from performing or supervising an abortion.
As a Planned Parenthood spokesperson explains, that means it would “prohibit two of the finest medical schools in the the country from providing doctors with the training necessary to provide safe abortion care.”
It does no good trying to sift through the nonsense in search of even a tiny grain of logic; the goal of the GOP is to get rid of abortion entirely. No matter what bad outcomes result from their arbitrary and patently unhealthy dictates, it's all gravy for this crowd. And even a comment as stupid as this one:
