Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-North Carolina) explained today why House Republicans’ Protect Life Act is not misogynist:
And for my colleagues across the aisle who say this is a misogynist bill, nobody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have. But 50 percent of the unborn babies that are being aborted are females, so the misogyny comes for those who promote the killing of unborn babies. That’s where the misogyny comes in, Madam Speaker.
The House plans to vote on the bill today. It would block women using a health reform subsidy from buying coverage for abortion.
