So while Fox News blowhard Bill O’Reilly disingenuously claims that “[n]obody is messing around with women’s reproductive rights”, Alaska Republican Representative Alan Dick is advocating for laws criminalizing an abortion if the woment did not obtain written permission from the man who impregnated her:
And if you’re not fully convinced yet that Alaska is the next front in the GOP’s war on women, you just have to listen to State Rep. Alan Dick. He said that he doesn’t believe that when a woman is pregnant, it’s really “her pregnancy.” As a matter of fact, he would advocate for criminalizing women who have an abortion without the permission via written signature from the man who impregnated her. He stated, “If I thought that the man’s signature was required… required, in order for a woman to have an abortion, I’d have a little more peace about it…” He didn’t say whether a rapist would be able to send his signature by fax from prison, or not. But he’ll have “peace” and women will require a permission slip for their own bodies.
So according to Dick, a rapist or incest survivor needs to get permission from the man who violated her. This is the Republican war on women in full display and I am still waiting for a Republican of national prominence to condemn this assault on women’s rights.
