In case you needed a reminder not to vote Republican …

The Republican Party isn’t going to let a little fracas over “legitimate rape” and sperm-killing juices get in the way of its radical anti-abortion platform. From NPR:

GOP Platform Anti-Abortion Language Includes No Exceptions For Rape, Incest

In Tampa, Fla., a week ahead of their national convention, Republicans are drawing up their party platform. …

With little discussion, the committee on Tuesday adopted the same anti-abortion language it’s included in GOP platforms in 2004 and 2008. It seeks passage of a constitutional amendment that would extend legal rights to the unborn, essentially banning abortion.

The language in the platform includes no exceptions for rape or incest.

Oh, and by the way, Todd Akin is not only fundamentally deluded about the basic facts of women’s reproductive systems. He’s also fundamentally deluded about the basic facts of climate change.
