BOY, BYE: Anti-Choice Rep Who Says The Only Woman Who Can Have An Abortion is His Mistress, is Leaving Town
BTW, that sick 20-week abortion ban is co-sponsored by the sleazebag in this story! Coincidence? More like ironic justice. If you haven’t heard the one about the anti-choice Congressman who urged his mistress to get an abortion, then you really MUST check out this NPR piece about that slimeball finally bowing out. Rep.

This great piece from Wired shows how insanely bad this problem is—and how it’s intentionally spurred on by anti-choice politicians!
Let’s end on a few rays of sunshine from the Sunshine State.
