"Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) denied Thursday that a bill that would allow hospitals to refuse treatment to pregnant women was misogynist, adding that 'nobody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have.' In a speech on the House floor, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) explained why she believed 'The Protect Life Act' was a step backward for women’s reproductive rights." [editor's note: Beyond the usual pissing contest (this time between two CongressWOMEN), there is the issue of federal funding of abortion, a line in the sand quite familiar to libertarians - SAT] (10/13/11)
