GOP Senator Pushes Radical Bill To Restrict Discussion Of Abortion Over The Internet

From Think Progress:

Instead of focusing on job creation, congressional Republicans have spent their time passing socially conservative legislation like the “Let Women Die” bill that would allow hospitals that receive federal funds to deny women life-saving abortion procedures.

Now Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), one of the most die-hard anti-choice lawmakers, has jumped on the bandwagon by sneaking a radical anti-abortion amendment onto a completely unrelated piece of legislation. DeMint’s amendment would ban women and their doctors from discussing abortion over the Internet:


  1. There is something seriously wrong with the rules when anti-abortion legislation can be amended to a bill dealing with housing and agriculture. WTF – one bill, one topic

  2. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  3. Some day, as long as it is still legal for me to do so, I will tell my grandkids about what life was like before “Free Speech” Zones and laws like this. Republicans: Against Big Government (unless it is doing something evil).

  4. At first I thought the bill was trying to outlaw people arguing over abortion on internet forums. That is a law I WOULD be in support of….
