Seriously, ladies, what is this fuckery? As we reported earlier, a Georgia bill criminalizing abortion after 20 weeks, with no exceptions for rape or incest, has passed Georgia’s Senate, and is expected to be signed into law by Republican Governor Nathan Deal.

This bill has affectionately been referred to as the “women as livestock” bill, after Representative Terry England noted that farmers often have to “deliver calves, dead or alive,” so therefore it shouldn’t be that difficult for a woman carrying a dead fetus to carry it to full-term.

It’s come down to this. The Final Four. (There’s still time to vote for either Rush Limbaugh or the Pee Drinker, by the way!)
