Think the it’s-not-rape-unless-there’s-screaming “No Taxpayer Money For Abortion Act” is bad?  Check out the GOP’s Orwellian “Protect Life Act”:

The bill, known currently as H.R. 358 or the “Protect Life Act,” would amend the 2010 health care reform law that would modify the way Obamacare deals with abortion coverage. Much of its language is modeled on the so-called Stupak Amendment, an anti-abortion provision pro-life Democrats attempted to insert into the reform law during the health care debate last year. But critics say a new language inserted into the bill just this week would go far beyond Stupak, allowing hospitals that receive federal funds but are opposed to abortions to turn away women in need of emergency pregnancy termination to save their lives.

But they would at least be required to facilitate transfer to a hospital that isn’t willing to let them die, right?  Not so much…

[Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA)]‘s new bill would free hospitals from any abortion requirement under EMTALA, meaning that medical providers who aren’t willing to terminate pregnancies wouldn’t have to — nor would they have to facilitate a transfer.

So given the choice between the life of the mother and the life of a fetus, the supposedly “pro-life” zealots are perfectly willing to let the mother die.  They are so consumed by their creepy “sluts get what they deserve” mindset that they can’t even imagine that good married Christian women might need emergency lifesaving abortions too.  Or else they simply don’t care because they believe all women are that worthless and expendable, even their own.
