The anti-choice zealots at Personhood USA, who believe that a fertilized egg has more rights than the woman whose body produced the egg, have launched a new campaign called Save the 1 to eliminate rape exceptions in all abortion-related laws. My friend Robin Marty has their press release:
Following the widely publicized misstatements of Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, Save the 1 has been created to equip politicians who hold to the 100% prolife position, educating them on the statistics and facts that support 100% abortion bans.
So they’re going to provide support for the “misstatements” of Akin and Mourdock. Wouldn’t that make them not misstatements?
Founder of Save the 1 and spokesperson for Personhood USA, attorney Rebecca Kiessling was conceived in rape and has become an outspoken advocate for others like her and for women, such as her mother, who have been raped.
