There Are Children Here Somewhere -- I Can Smell Them
U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, who often takes a conservative line on social issues, is facing a liberal Democratic primary challenge from wealthy Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. But that hasn't stopped Lieberman from supporting the approach of the Catholic hospitals when it comes to contraceptives for rape victims.How fucking sick do you have to be, first off, to tell a woman who was just raped that she isn't as important as her rapist's potential unborn child?
Lieberman said he believes hospitals that refuse to give contraceptives to rape victims for "principled reasons" shouldn't be forced to do so. "In Connecticut, it shouldn't take more than a short ride to get to another hospital," he said.
How stupid and insensitive do you have to be, secondly, to say that, if she doesn't want to carry the rapist's potential unborn child, she should go down the street to the next hospital?
And how deeply in denial do you have to be, thirdly, to say these things and call yourself a Democrat? An American? A human being?
Joe must go.
