Here's a fact, the current congress, including Paul Ryan who co-sponsered, supported a bill that re-defiend rape.
Another fact, the number of abortion bills that showed up in congress and legistlators across the country skyrocketed since the GOP wave in 2010.
You're exposing yourself as someone who believes only what they read in Politico and doesn't bother to do his own research of the facts.
That bill had nothing to do with rape, it was about abortion funding. And it used the 40 year old word-for-word Federal definition of rape. The bill had bipartisan support and sponsorship. At some point, it was pointed out by a women's group that the rape wording was backwards and somewhat offensive. In reaction, the wording was changed. As it was on the federal books. Spare us the bs that Republicans are trying to "redefine rape". That's a total distortion of the truth designed to go with a political narrative. The fact that you believe and repeat it makes you sound like a fool
