What makes an Indiana proposal that would force women to have a freedom wand inserted into their ladyparts before they can have an abortion different from all the other proposals to require pre-abortion trans-vaginal ultrasounds?

Every Mitt Romney supporter has to deal with the disappointment of losing a hard fought presidential campaign, but few conservatives have the misfortune of staring at their regrets in the mirror every morning.

A decision that was rewarded during last night's Senate debate with this commentary…
Defending his stance that abortion should be illegal even in the case of rape, Mourdock explained that pregnancy resulting from nonconsensual sex is the will of God.
