Here at Hello Ladies, we support equal rights for men and women. So there was no way we were going to pass on the opportunity to award Texas State Representative Jodie Laubenberg the Ignorant Legislator of the Week award after giving several men the title in recent weeks.
Earlier this week, during debate over Texas Senate Bill 5 which would ban abortions after the twentieth week of pregnancy and limit abortions to surgical centers, Laubenberg explained why she doesn’t support an exemption for rape victims.
“In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out,” said Laudenberg. Wow. A rape kit is not an abortion. And we thought GOP men said ignorant things about rape.
Other women in Texas, however, have been rallying for days in an attempt to defeat the legislation which some are saying would make obtaining a legal abortion in Texas impossible. Hundreds of activisists are camped out at the capitol building hoping the Democrats can stage a filibuster today.
