Kansas' religious Republicans are so intent on proving they will go to any length to protect a fetus that they passed legislation for the National Right To Life movement outlawing a medical procedure to ban abortions at 14 weeks after fertilization.
One day people will wake up and wonder why they can no longer get the pill in their state, let alone an abortion. They can thank a Republican for the RFRA.
Today is the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling giving women the right to choose when they give birth and, like every year for over two decades, religious fanatics will protest the landmark decision. Their contention is that patriarchs in Catholic Church, not women, own the right to make reproductive choices for American women.
Instead of introducing legislation to create jobs, or help Americans struggling in an economy created for the benefit of the rich, on the first day of the 114th Congress Republicans introduced five separate bills restricting women's reproductive rights; something they did not pledge would be at the top of their legislative agenda.
The recent appropriations bill known as the CRomnibus could have been a lot worse for women's reproductive rights and it is very fortunate for women that Democrats and President Obama succeeded in getting it passed.
It is the right to choose their reproductive health that women are most likely under attack from Republicans whose latest assault is restricting abortion coverage in private health care plans.
