Your penalty for being raped is to bear his child

Atrios points to this Reuters story. Louisiana enacted a “trigger law” that would ban almost all abortions “even in cases of rape or incest” if Roe vs. Wade is overturned. This saddens me. I think people are going to have to start dying from botched abortions again before some states will come up with a tolerable compromise. Federalism (i.e. different states doing different things) may be the only way to go on this issue, but that means abandoning many to the punishments of the reactionaries. If you’re angry about this, there’s a Planned Parenthood link in the sidebar. Give them some love.
